Please check back to this page to see the latest updates as we begin to open for business again. This is the best place to find answers to questions you may have regarding our plans reopen for business and how we plan to handle covid-19 within our restaurant.


Our hours are:

Sunday through Thursday: Noon to 8:00pm
Friday & Saturday: Noon to 9:00pm

In Person Dining

Beginning on Monday, June 1st, we will be expanding our seating to include indoor seating, in accordance with Rhode Island Department of Health guidance. Reservations are still strongly recommended. The best place to make a reservation is online. However, if you do not see any available slots, or are considering dining out last minute, we encourage you to phone the restaurant to double check for availability.

Per Rhode Island Department of Health guidance, you can expect the following when making a reservation and dining with us:

  • We will be logging full name and phone number of the guest making the reservation. We will not at this time be collecting this information from any additional members of your party.
  • Upon arrival at the restaurant you will be directed to signage to assist you with a self screening process. All guests will be required to self screen before entering the restaurant. The self screening process does not include any temperature checks, instead guests will be asked to read through a listing of Covid-19 symptoms. If a guest identifies with any of the listed symptoms within the last 3 days, they are asked to not dine.
  • All guests will be required to wear a mask while visiting the restaurant, except of course while dining.
  • While seated at your table you may remove your facemask. However, please put your mask back on any time you interact with the staff per RI DOH guidelines.
  • Our HVAC system has been outfitted with a Bipolar Ionization System that provides continuous disinfection by deactivating and removing allergens and viruses.

Just a few additional notes to help make your meal with us a smooth and enjoyable experience:

  • Menus will be single use, or as a green option, all tables will have a QR code that will direct you to a mobile friendly menu you can view right from your phone.
  • Please take care to arrive as close to possible for your reservation time, as we will not have a waiting area available for guests to wait to be seated.
  • While we will be offering full beer, wine & alcohol service, there will be no walk up bar service – you will not be able to walk up to a bar to order a drink while waiting to be seated, or after your meal.
  • We would greatly appreciate if during this time you paid by credit card whenever possible.

Lastly, we can’t wait to see you.

We’re currently offering take our during out normal hours of business. All orders must be placed by phone.

Where will we be Seating Customers?

The Mooring will be seating customers on our back patio as well as inside the restaurant, in full compliance with the RI Department of Health guidelines mandating social distancing. Please be aware that we are not taking seating requests at this time and we are unable to make any guarantees for whether guests are seated on the patio versus inside the restaurant prior to your arrival.

Covid-19 Precautions

Like all members of our community, we are taking increased precautions to ensure the health and safety of our employees and our customers. As it relates to our employees:

  • All employees are temperature checked and logged upon arriving for their shifts
  • Masks are worn by all employees and proper social distancing guidelines are adhered to within the restaurant during the preparation of your meal.
