Horseshoe Cafe & Bar COVID-19 Update:

We are still here for you! But, a bit differently.

Per the Governor's updated guidance and regulations for restaurants and bars, we will be operating a bit different moving forward. Thank you for your understanding throughout these uncertain times!

Starting Thursday, July 30th we will implement:
-> Temporary COVID-19 hours of 10am-10pm, daily.
-> Indoor dining will be limited to same household members only.
-> A bit of a reduced menu, but don't worry - we are still serving up the classics.
-> The Ranch Room Bar will close; however, we are still able to serve you beer, cocktails, daily specials & happy hour in the cafe.

For the safety of our crew, we will continue to ask that you wear your masks at all times unless you are eating and drinking. On a personal note, thank you for being understanding, wearing your masks, respecting social distancing, and being all-around amazing guests.

Let's be real, we wouldn't want to do 2020 without you.

- The 'Shoe

We take health & safety seriously. In order to offer safe service, these are just some of the steps we are taking to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and maintain the health of our customers and employees:

-> Staff will be wearing face masks, washing hands frequently & disinfecting high touch surfaces often.
-> We will be practicing social distancing of at least 6ft.
-> Pens and receipt clipboards are sanitized after every use.
-> We have removed table tents & condiment baskets from the tables and are bringing these out on request only. After each use they are thoroughly sanitized.
-> Tables are not pre-set. Silverware is pre-rolled with gloves on and brought out to customers as they sit.
-> Bathrooms and high touch surfaces are sanitized often throughout every shift
-> We have provided hand sanitizer at our entrance for customers.
-> We have closed tables, removed bar stools, and spaced out seating to encourage social distancing.
-> Any staff member exhibiting symptoms of illness will be sent home for 7 days and until they are symptom-free for at least 3 days.
-> We have designated a separate area in our dining room for takeout food so that we can better adhere to social distancing guidelines.
-> We will be running a small crew so that there are never too many people in the building, we can safely practice social distancing, and we will send anyone home who exhibits any symptoms.
We are working hard to make sure that we will be able to operate safely and responsibly during these uncertain times. If you have other suggestions on steps we can take to ensure everyone’s safety, we would love to hear them and encourage you to reach out to us!
