COVID-19 Precautions when Booking an Event

Please Note

Event sizes and limitations are subject to health guidelines set by the Region of Waterloo. We abide by them completely and remind guests to be safe and considerate of the changes that we are all adjusting to at this time.

We have a rigorous Health and Sanitation program in place to protect our guests and team members. For more Information, see our Dining Safety Protocol. We urge all guests to stay home if you feel at all unwell. Masks are mandatory for entry, and we remind guests that we cannot allow diners to leave their table to mingle with others at this time, out of an abundance of caution.

Be mindful that maintaining social circles and adequate social distancing are of the highest importance at this time. Our rooms have lower capacity  and new table configurations to accommodate social distancing. Some room descriptions may be out of date, speak with our event coordinator to discuss current set ups that allow for safe and conscientious gatherings. From micro weddings, small family gatherings and meetings, we are here to help with any questions or concerns you may have.

-Together in Safety,

The Charcoal Steak House Team.
