Guests will also return to some tried-and-true favorites,including Honey Bourbon-Glazed Whiskey Wings, Shrimp Hushpuppies, Fried mac & cheese, pimento cheese, and Big Jack burger. They’ll also be glad that management has taken safety & sanitation seriously, raising the bar on their protocols. For on-premises dining, Jack Rose offers reservations via Resy; occasionally, walk-in tables are available. For peace of mind and to help their restaurant recover, dining tables, which are set up for 2-6 guests, have time limits of 1.5 to 2.5 hours per reservation, depending on party size.

Jack Rose Dining Saloon guests will see the restaurant has created three distinct areas on the terrace: its main rooftop dining space, a small, festive Tiki Bar and “breezy balcony” overlooking 18th Street. New, large TVs add to the liveliness of the space while the floorplan emphasizes social distancing.

Here are the Jack Rose Dining Saloon safety and sanitation measures as per an emailed announcement:

  • Safe Distancing: at least 6 feet between tables, and a maximum of 6 guests per party
  • PPE: all staff members will wear masks and gloves during service, and guests are required to wear masks while not eating or drinking
  • Enhanced Cleaning Procedures: in addition to continuous cleaning of surfaces with disinfectants, all team members will adhere to strict, frequent handwashing and hygiene standards
  • Sanitizer Stations: hand sanitizer stations will be placed throughout the terrace
  • Digital Menus: links to online menus will be provided to guests in addition to sanitized, laminated menus
  • Contact Tracing: guests will be required to give their names and contact information
  • Limited Capacity: Jack Rose will decrease its capacity to 38, to accommodate for increased safe dining distances and removal of bar seating
  • Smoke-Free: all smoking (cigarettes, cigars, vaping) will be prohibited on the terrace
