We will be continuing with outdoor dining only for the foreseeable time being in an effort to continue creating a safe environment, for guests and employees alike. All of the measures that are in place outside promote distance and safe service. As one guest said: “Washington House has really done it right in the face of COVID. They hand built customized picnic tables so they didn’t slope with the parking lot. Real table clothes and huge barrels of flowers. A small bar out of a fire truck and an antique truck with a private table with canopy. All tables are tented and even have their own hand sanitizer. Tables were at least 10 feet apart. They thought of everything.” That about sums it up!
Thank you for your trust in us and your continued patronage and look forward to seeing you soon! Be well.
