Outdoor dining at the Windlass has returned with limited seating. We look forward to serving you; please read the following important information regarding planning your visit with us. The most important change to our operations is that we are a reservation-only establishment and no walk-ins will be permitted. Because our seating is limited, we recommend that you make your reservation well in advance to ensure availability.
At this time we are also taking inquiries for private parties. If you are interested in hosting an event at the Windlass please visit our Private Parties page to fill out our inquiry form.
Outdoor seating will be open, weather permitting, from 12pm-8:30pm every day except Wednesday (we are closed on Wednesdays) by reservation ONLY.
We will be accepting reservations only and will have specific seatings beginning at 12:00pm with the last seating at 830pm. Reservations can ONLY BE MADE VIA PHONE. We will NOT be taking reservations through email, the contact form on our website, or on social media. Reservations are required at this time and no walk-in customers are allowed. A credit card will be required to make your reservation. Guests will not be charged upon making reservations but there will be a $20 cancellation fee per person for “No Shows” or last-minute changes. Please scroll below to view our full Reservation Policy, which will be given to each guest upon making your reservation.
Our reservation lines are manned from 11:30am until 8:30pm. If the line is busy please try again as reservations can ONLY BE MADE VIA PHONE. Walk-in guests are not permitted on site regardless of occupancy. All customers considering visiting us must call ahead to check availability and secure a table.
We will be operating at a reduced capacity and will only be able to accommodate parties of 8 or less for outdoor seating. All tables will be spaced at least six feet apart.
Guests will have an hour and a half to enjoy their dining experience. This will allow an enjoyable dining experience for more guests and allow us the time to properly sanitize contact surfaces between guest seatings.
The state requires that all guests wear a mask when entering and leaving the restaurant as well as visiting the restrooms. Indoor restrooms will be available to patrons and masks will be required to enter the restaurant to visit the restrooms. Masks are not required while seated at your table.
Our “All Day Menu” will be available for all seatings as well as take-out.
We will be following the extensive guidance issued by the State of New Jersey. Staff will continue to be screened before each shift and are required to wear masks and gloves and continue to adhere to CDC and ServSafe protocols. All surfaces will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized between seatings.
Due to state requirements, The Windlass is only able to accommodate so many guests within each seating period in order to ensure that we are adhering to government guidelines.
