Enjoy Your Favorite Shadyside Restaurants with Delivery or Take-out

These are just a few of the foodservice establishments still offering takeout and delivery. The best way to find out if your favorite place is still open is to check their social media. Many restaurants have been posting weekly specials or new features like local delivery to help their business thrive during difficult times. 

If you aren’t interested in dining out during this time, you can also buy gift cards from your favorite place to put some money in their pocket and a gift card in yours for a later date.
