Some Red Deer restaurants temporarily closed amid COVID-19, most offering home delivery

For some Red Deer restaurants, it’s not a goodbye, but a see you later.

Bo’s Bar and Stage is closed temporarily, but is preparing for takeout and delivery service. Starting Thursday, the restaurant will also be offering a heat-at-home menu.

R&R Grill in Red Deer and Tony Roma’s and Original Joe’s have also shut their doors temporarily.

The Boston Pizza website states all locations have temporarily closed their dining rooms and sports bars. Takeout and delivery remains open.

Earls restaurant in Red Deer is also shut temporarily due to COVID-19, but takeout and delivery remains open.

In a statement, Earls says the company will be paying employees at all 66 locations in North America.

“We are living in uncertain times, and for this, we want to offer some security… Our hourly workers will be paid for all the hours they were scheduled to work.

“In addition, all management teams in our restaurants will be fully compensated,” the restaurant chain said.

Throughout Canada, including in Red Deer, Uber Eats is offering free delivery for independent restaurants.

“As more customers are choosing to stay indoors, we’ve waived the delivery fee for the more than 100,000 independent restaurants across U.S. and Canada on Uber Eats,” the company said in a statement.

Pampa Steakhouse announced adjusted business hours, effective Monday until at least April 5.

The Timberlands area restaurant will be open Monday to Friday from 5 to 8 p.m., Saturday and Sunday from 4 to 8 p.m. and for Sunday brunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Tiffany’s Steakhouse and Lounge has shut its lounge, but the dining room remains open. Troubled Monk Brewery in Red Deer, One Eleven Grill, ABC Country Restaurant, Dose Coffee Co., City Roast Coffee, Las Palmeras and La Casa Pergola are open.

All restaurants that have their dining rooms open are taking measures, such as extra sanitizing steps and seating people in a way that direct contact is not possible.

Premier Jason Kenney announced Tuesday that restaurants can remain open throughout the province, but are to be capped at 50 per cent capacity or 50 people – whichever number is lower.
