Philadelphia Restaurants Reopened For Outdoor Dining

A running list of the reopened Philly restaurants where you can eat and drink outside.

Updated October 16th, 2020

Starting June 12, Philadelphia restaurants are officially allowed to reopen for outdoor dining. Though things are changing quickly, we want to provide you with the most up-to-date information that we have: which places are opening back up, whether they’re taking reservations, and any policies they might have that go beyond the city’s Yellow Phase guidelines. For a cheat sheet on what those are, read our FAQ.

While restaurants are in the process of reopening, many places are still offering carryout and delivery. Check out our collection for hundreds of takeout and delivery options across the city.
