Dining Reopening

The health and safety of our guests and employees is our number one priority. At this time, Fat Bully’s at Sunset Ridge and Layla’s Lounge remain closed, while the independent restaurant operators prepare to reopen at a later date. We continue to closely monitor Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines and public health advancements, and we have implemented operational procedures and protocols throughout our restaurant and bar that you need to know before you make your next trip to the Chickasaw Retreat and Conference Center.

Physical Distancing. Upon reopening, restaurant tables and other physical layouts will be arranged to ensure appropriate physical distancing of six feet among different parties. The bar will be for service only and bar stools will be removed. Guests will be advised to practice physical distancing leaving six feet between themselves and people not traveling with them while ordering and waiting on food orders. Additional physical distancing measures will include single-use or digital menus, the use of canned or bottled beverages, cashless payment systems or receipt-less transactions and other measures as appropriate for a specific establishment.

Daily Operations. Upon reopening, the restaurant and bar will have reduced seating capacity to implement physical distancing. Hours of operation may vary to allow for additional cleaning procedures and protocols. We will do our best to keep current hours of operation for each establishment updated below. Menus also may be limited.

Enhanced Cleaning and Disinfecting Protocols. Enhanced cleaning procedures will be followed, including the use of electrostatic sprayers and EPA-certified chemicals during daily closures as well as more frequent manual disinfection processes with EPA-registered disinfectant on high-touch surfaces like chairs, tables, trays, counters, host podiums and other hard surfaces. Hand sanitizer dispensers will be located at restaurant entrances, guest and employee entrances and exits as well as other high-contact areas.
