Chelseas Reopening Plan

Dear Chelseas Family,

Chelseas now offers both limited indoor and outdoor dining.  Words cannot express how grateful we are for your support and encouragement as we waited for this day.

We are committed to ensure a safe and healthy environment.  My staff happily returned to train using the NJ safety procedures.  Trust me they can’t wait to see all of you again.  They are prepared to offer you amazing service safely. 

Learn about how the seating process will work:

  • Reservations are currently being accepted.  

  • If you do not make a reservation, seating will be offered on a first come, first serve basis only. Please call 908-437-0311 when parking or check in at the lobby.  If there is a wait, you will have the option to join the waitlist or order your food to go.

  • Outdoor dining will be contingent on weather.

  • In the event of inclement weather while dining outside and there's no indoor tables available, guests will be provided with their checks for prompt payment and food will be packaged in takeout containers.  

  • We are encouraging a time limit of 1.5 hours for tables of four or more and 1 hour for tables less than four.

  • Hours of Operation: In addition to being open for pickup, indoor/outdoor dining will be open Tuesday - Sunday from 4pm to 9pm (weather permitting for outdoor dining).

  • Private luncheons also available! Call us at 908-437-0311 for more information.

What your dining experience will look like:

  • You will check in at our host stand. If there are guests in front of you, please use social distancing, 6 feet apart from the other guest, until the other party is seated.

  • Right after checking in, you will get a table number which is chalked on the floor.

  • If a table is not immediately available, you will be placed on the waitlist. Please return to your car and refrain from waiting inside or around the restaurant. You will receive a text message/call signifying that your table is ready. Then you may promptly proceed to the host stand to be seated.

  • Please use your phone and go to to view our menu.

  • If you still feel you need a physical menu, we will have printed ones available.

  • Your server will greet your table and stand, if possible, at least 6 ft. away to take your order, to ensure the best possible social distancing.  

  • Servers will be wearing masks and gloves,

  • Every table will be 6 ft. apart from each other, so you will have enough space to feel comfortable with your party.

We have created new employee training guidelines and procedures that every employee must follow on a daily basis. Among some of the most important procedures include:

  • Every employee is temperature checked when they clock in to work every day. The temperatures are then recorded and kept on file. If any employee exhibits a high temperature or signs of a fever, they will not be permitted to work.

  • In addition, team members have been instructed and are regularly reminded  not to report to work if they have COVID-19 symptoms or if they come into contact with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 or has a COVID-19 test pending result.

  • Every employee is required to regularly wash their hands and change gloves when necessary.

  • Team members will wear gloves when handling used food service items (e.g., clearing tables) and when removing garbage bags and disposing of trash. Team members will wash their hands after removing their gloves.

  • Table and chairs are sanitized after each seating.

  • Every door handle is periodically sanitized by our staff, during, before and after service.

  • We have hand sanitizer available for you to use freely, just ask your server.


Your help in the following will ensure a safe experience for all:

  • If you or any member of your party is sick or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, stay home.

  • All guests must wear face coverings at all times, except while seated at their table.

  • If there is a wait, please wait in your car. We want to make sure we do not create unnecessary crowds of people waiting outside the restaurant

  • Please be mindful of the length of your visit, as we will have other guests waiting. We ask that once you have paid your bill you leave in a timely manner to allow other guests to be seated.

  • Please adhere to social distancing guidelines and heed the direction from our team members by maintaining 6 feet of space from other guests outside of your party at all times.


Thank you again for your support this year and we look forward to welcoming you back to Chelseas!
