Our response to COVID-19

UPDATED: March 16, 2020

At Fifth Group Restaurants, the health and wellness of our employees and guests remains our top priority. We are closely following the public health recommendations of state and local health departments, the Center for Disease Control and the World Health Organization regarding COVID-19 with a focus on keeping our teams and guests safe and healthy.

All our restaurants remain open for business. We want you to feel comfortable and confident when dining with us. We are an industry that is already governed by strict health and safety standards, so we have reinforced our existing sanitation procedures and implemented new precautions to make our restaurants even cleaner and to help our guests feel as safe as possible.

These new measures include:

  • Tables and bar stools have been removed from restaurants to aid in social distancing
  • Increased cleaning and disinfecting of all surfaces during shifts from tables and chairs to counters and doors
  • Continued deep cleaning and sanitation of all restaurants before and after shifts
  • Daily staff education on preventative measures including diligent implementation of our existing handwashing policy for all team members
  • Ensuring all team members are healthy and re-emphasizing our policy that no sick employees should ever come to work
  • Offering to go orders for all shifts at all our restaurant locations – check here for hours and specials – FifthGroup.com/ToGo
  • Removing all public use shared condiments and reprinting fresh menus for each shift

We usually don’t ask our guests for much (other than an occasional Atlanta Community Food Bank donation), but during these uncertain times, we need your support as well. If you suspect you are ill, it is your responsibility to stay home and not visit our restaurants. We will gladly cancel any upcoming reservations with no questions asked. Thank you for your help in keeping our communities safe.
