5 Ways to Support Restaurants

Your favorite restaurants are ready for you and could use your support.

Make a commitment to support all the places and flavors of this glorious city. Here are 5 ways to show your support:

1.  Mask up and order up.

Show up for your favorite business by dining in or ordering take-out or delivery. Every order makes a difference. 

Here are 7 tips when ordering takeout or arranging to dine-in:

  1. Consider ordering or dining earlier in the week to avoid the Friday and Saturday rush.
  2. If ordering takeout, avoid ordering during the dinner rush to ensure the restaurant can accept and process your order efficiently.
  3. When possible, order takeout directly from the restaurant instead of a third-party app.
  4. If you're getting lunch, considering ordering your dinner as well to enjoy later.
  5. Add on a take and bake meal or grill kit to your order - these will keep for a few days.
  6. If you are looking to snag a patio spot on a beautiful day, try arriving close to the restaurant opening to avoid long waits.
  7. Consider planning ahead and making a reservation to avoid crowding.

2. Write a positive review.

Online reviews make a difference. Have a great experience? Take a minute to leave a review on the restaurant's Yelp, Google or Facebook page.

3.Use your social media to share the love.

When you dine out or order in, support the restaurant by posting a picture or video on social media. Make sure to tag the restaurant, shower them with love and use #DineSaintPaul for the chance to have your photo shared by Visit Saint Paul. 

4. Buy gift cards or merchandise.

Purchase a gift card to use when you're ready to dine-in, or to give as a gift. If they sell apparel, consider buying a hat or t-shirt and represent your favorite spot.

5. Refer a restaurant.
