With an amended order from the state allowing on-premises dining at restaurants, bars and breweries that can follow social distancing guidelines, some Birmingham area restaurants have started to reopen their doors. Here’s an updated list of restaurants open in and around Birmingham.

Alabama’s Amended “Safer at Home” Plan

Alabama’s amended “Safer at Home” plan announced Friday, May 9, stated that on May 11, 2020, restaurants, bars, breweries and similar establishments may now offer “on-premises consumption of food or drink”.

The order—which will remain in effect until May 22 at 5PM—also stated that party sizes must be limited to no more than eight people who can maintain a six-foot distance between other patrons, and other specific guidelines.

Restaurants, bars and breweries were encouraged to continue take-out and delivery services as well as continue practicing safe social distancing protocols

Keep supporting restaurants offering curbside pickup, takeout and delivery!

Many restaurants in the Birmingham area aren’t ready to open their doors for customers to dine in. Some need more time to prepare and plan, and some just don’t have the space to meet the CDC’s social distancing guidelines. But they all still need our support. Here are a few resources with ways to do that now:
