COVID-19: B.C. has banned indoor food service. Here’s a list of Kelowna restaurants with patios

You can still support local businesses in a safe way amid new provincial restrictions

In what provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry is calling a “circuit breaker,” B.C. is stopping indoor dining and liquor sales, among other indoor activities, for the next three weeks.

The hastily introduced order is set to have a detrimental impact on already-struggling local restaurants and their employees. The health order is set to expire on April 19.

But while restaurants aren’t allowed to serve customers inside, they will be allowed to welcome people, in a safe and distanced manner to their patios. Local eateries and watering holes have taken to social media boasting their still-open patios and new or ongoing delivery services. While restaurants can serve outdoors, they are still bound by capacity limits and can only seat six to a table, all of whom should be from the same household.

Black Press Media is compiling a list of all of those local patio-laden restaurants in the Central Okanagan that are ready to welcome you for some outdoor eats.

If you’d like your restaurant, or one you frequent, included in the list below, shoot an email to or message us on Instagram. This list will be updated regularly as submissions come in.
