250+ Oahu restaurants are reopening for dine-in from Sept. 24

Yes, Oahu, we can eat out again! Is your fave eatery on the list?
oahu sept 24 dine in

Not only are lockdown restrictions being eased starting tomorrow, we can eat out again, Oahu! That is resounding good news for eaters and restaurants islandwide that have been surviving on takeout orders for the last four weeks.

Officially we’ll be in Tier 1 of Oahu’s new system that ties all kinds of activities to islandwide COVID metrics. For the next four weeks, that means

  • Restaurants will have to operate at 50% seating capacity
  • Up to 5 diners from the same household can sit at one table
  • Customers will have to provide contact details for contact tracing 
  • Reservations will be required so call ahead or book online!

When the word came down Tuesday afternoon we immediately put out a call on Instagram to see which restaurants plan to reopen. Response was overwhelming. Click on restaurant names to see their latest Instagram posts for details. Restaurants are still contacting us so we’ll keep updating this list.
