2020 has been a hard year for many, including those in the restaurant business. One popular place is closing for the remainder of 2020, offering take out only.

Ocean Blue will offer take out and delivery beginning Monday, November 23rd. "We do not want to encourage large bar crowds or tight dining spaces," the restaurant shared on Facebook.

When the restaurant industry was able to reopen, Mother Nature provided beautiful summer weather, allowing restaurants to offer outdoor dining.

Our city stood behind the restaurant industry with the greatest sense of community we have ever seen. People came out in celebration while following mask regulations and distancing guidelines. We cannot thank all of you enough for supporting us and the other local restaurants all summer long.

As we head into the winter months and the second wave of COVID-19 cases is spreading through central New York, it's affecting holiday plans. "It is not easy to stay away from our families and our friends but it is necessary."

Ocean Blue staff is encouraging everyone to stay home, stay safe and let the food and drink come to you. "Our top priority is our guests and our staffs safety during these ever-changing and uncertain times. Ocean Blue during the holiday season is a place of joy, mingling, laughter, and togetherness even before you ever throw back a single oyster."

Updates on menus, specials, delivery and dining options will be posted on Ocean Blue's Facebook page.
