Restaurants Offering Outdoor Dining & To-Go Meals

Gov. Henry McMaster lifts restaurant occupancy restrictions effective immediately, restaurants in South Carolina are allowed to operate at 100 percent capacity following the announcement from Gov. McMaster. Other restaurant safety guidelines have also been lifted, including the face mask requirement and the “last call order,” which did not allow the sale or consumption of alcohol in restaurants after 11 p.m.

  • Other safety measures that are strongly encouraged, but are no longer required include the following:

  • Restaurants should space indoor and outdoor tables 6 feet apart, to the extent possible.
  • Restaurants should limit seating each table to no more than 8 customers and patrons, exclusive of family units or members of the same household.
  • Restaurants should adopt and enforce a process to ensure that customers and patrons are able to maintain a minimum of 6 feet of separation from other parties while waiting to be seated.
  • Restaurants should minimize, modify, or discontinue services that allow customers and patrons to fill or refill their own beverage cups.
