Restaurants in the Raleigh area—and across the state—are currently operating with some limitations, most notably that dine-in seating capacity is allowed at just 50% of maximum. This will continue until at least July 17 while the state is under Phase 2 of Governor Roy Cooper's "Safer-at-Home" order (see what else is currently allowed under Phase 2 here).

Many local restaurants in the City of Oaks and beyond have been certified under the Count On Me NC program, a public health initiative that specifically trains businesses to help keep everyone—both employees and guests—safe from COVID-19.

Below are updated lists of restaurants that are open for either dine-in or takeout service, with special note of which restaurants have been Count On Me NC certified. Please note that these openings are subject to change, and it's important to verify with a restaurant before finalizing plans. Due to limited seating capacity, reservations are recommended for most establishments that are offering dine-in service. 

Please also note that beginning Fri., June 26 at 5pm, face coverings will be mandatory across the entire state. At restaurants, diners should wear a mask whenever not seated at their table. Remember the three Ws: Wear a mask, wait six feet apart from others, wash your hands.
