FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — It’s almost Deck season.
The Deck at The Gas House hoped to open on Wednesday, but said it was “weather pending of course.” With temperatures in the mid-50s, the weather has ruined those plans.
The Deck hopes to open Thursday now.
The Deck said there would some “changes” to the way things look and feel at the outdoor restaurant/bar when the season gets underway.
“The Deck is going to be a little different for a bit. Please bare with us as we navigate this strange time together. We sincerely can’t wait to see some lovely people! Better days will be here. Let’s all be cool to each other.”
In a memo titled “Hall’s Plan of Attack,” the Hall’s restaurant chain said last week it was looking toward “better days ahead” and “rewind the clock to March 16th as best we are able” to begin the process of reopen its restaurants to dine-in customers, and that will start with The Deck.
“We’re putting everything in place to get the 2020 version of The Deck up and running next week (fingers crossed) and lining up the best course of action to take it from there on the other stores,” Hall’s said in the memo.
Hall’s said in the memo it was working through “new requirements, processes, and business decisions that restaurants will have to address.”
“We’re still making sure that we have everything in place to be certain that we’re doing it the right way, and not compromising the health of our guests and our employees,” the memo said.
Hall’s is still offering carry-out, drive-thru, curb service and delivery from The Original Drive-In on Bluffton Road, The Hollywood Drive-In on Lima Road, State Street Prime Rib, The Commissary in New Haven, The Tavern at Coventry, The Gas House, The Merc, and Takaoka of Japan, the memo said.
