The Same Home Country Cooking, but with Your Safety in Mind
We are thrilled to announce that Mountain Gate Family Restaurant has reopened for both dine-in and buffet service! However, while we are more than excited to finally see our customers again, we have made many changes in our establishment to best maintain the health and safety of our customers and employees. Our employees are required to wear masks, gloves, and frequently sanitize their hands, but we have also made some adjustments to the dine-in experience.
Like many other restaurants, we are limiting our seating to 50% capacity and all of our tables have been placed six feet apart. We are only allowed to seat a maximum of six guests at a table, so please know that if your group exceeds this number, your party may be split up amongst two or more tables.
Our buffet and salad bar are being served cafeteria-style, in which a customer can come up to the buffet-line where one of our courteous staff members will help fix their plate. This serving setup reduces any potential exposure, but still allows guests to customize their meal in the old Mountain Gate fashion! PLEASE NOTE THAT CUSTOMERS MUST WEAR A MASK WHEN GOING UP TO THE BUFFET OR SALAD BAR!
Other Dining Options
We understand that not everyone may be comfortable with the idea of a buffet at this point in time…and that’s completely okay! We want our customers to feel safe and satisfied, so we created a brand new menu. This menu features a whole bunch of old fashioned favorites and country cooking classics, but it also introduces some brand new items that we’re thrilled to share with our guests! Our brand new menu is featured below.
Still not comfortable with dining in at all? No worries! We are still offering carryout services and curbside pickup so all guests can get their Mountain Gate fix.
Winter Dining Changes
Baby, it’s cold outside! And we’re making some changes this winter season. Starting Tuesday, January 12th, our buffet will no longer be served on Tuesdays or Wednesdays. However, we are now offering all you can eat specials every week so you can fill up on plenty of our country cookin’! Check out this week’s specials below.
Also, starting Sunday, January 17th, our new Sunday hours will be 9 A.M. to 7 P.M. with both the menu and buffet available. Check back in the spring for more changes!
All of our gospel sings have been canceled at this time so we can practice social distancing in our establishment.
We are currently operating Tuesday through Saturday from 8 A.M. to 8 P.M. and on Sunday from 9 A.M. to 7 P.M., meaning we are closed on Mondays. While this may be an inconvenience to some of our customers, we still hope that you can find a time to come in, visit us, and enjoy an old-fashioned country meal!
We know this is a lot to take in and adjust to, but please keep in mind that we are trying our best to provide you with not only an enjoyable dine-in experience but a safe one as well. We hope that these changes will be temporary, so make sure you stay tuned for any changes we may make to our establishment as we make our way back to what we knew as normal. We greatly value the tremendous support from all of our customers and we appreciate your patience and cooperation! See y’all soon!
