Safe Reopening

Updated July 13, 2020

Dear Nitty Gritty Customers, 

First and foremost, we would like to thank everyone who has supported us at the Nitty Gritty by ordering takeout, purchasing gift cards, and sending positive messages over the past two and a half months. We are incredibly fortunate and proud to be part of the wonderful neighborhoods and communities who have kept us going.

Reopening Safely

We are happy to announce all Nitty Gritty locations are now open to dine-in customers with a 25% capacity, following the guidelines of Dane County’s Forward Dane Phased Reopening Plan.

We are taking all the necessary safety measures recommended by the local health authorities and have implemented meaningful changes to our already high standards for cleanliness and safety. Among other current practices, you will find that:

  • A host will seat you when you arrive in the building at tables or bar seats that are at least six feet from other customers.
  • We are currently using disposable menus and are not offering any self-serve condiments or unwrapped straws.
  • Nitty Gritty staff will be wearing masks. Customers are required to wear a mask when entering and moving about all Nitty Gritty locations. Masks can be removed by customers when they are seated to eat and drink.
  • There will be constant sanitization of communal surfaces.  

We are committed to taking care of our staff, customers and neighborhoods at this time. We ask that all guests visiting our restaurants please respect our staff and all posted signage to ensure the safety of all customers and Nitty Gritty employees.

Carryout, Curbside Pickup, and Delivery

We also continue our commitment to efficient contact-free pickup and delivery. You can call ahead to any of our locations for carryout or curbside pickup. We are also working with third-party services so you can have your Nitty Gritty meal delivered directly to your door. Find us on Eatstreet, Grubhub, UberEats and DoorDash.

We are here to serve you!

No matter how you choose to experience our hospitality during this time, we are here for you. Whether you are looking to celebrate a birthday, spend an afternoon on the patio, or enjoy a Gritty Burger at home, we would be thrilled to serve you.

We wish you all good health and thank you for your continuing support!

Thank you,

Team Nitty Gritty
