Message from Management

Family and Friends,

We wanted to keep in touch.

First, hope you are safe and well. This isn’t easy, is it? Let’s help each other all we can, and not be afraid to ask each other for help when needed.

Frying Pan and American Fish Company want you to know three things about us and about our future with you:

First, we are watching very carefully, along with you, the data and news reports about Covid-19, and listening to our elected officials, local and state in particular. Agree or disagree with every decision they make, keep them in your thoughts and prayers that they may seek wisdom and the good of all.

Second, we are going to reopen, and when we do, we want you to know that your safety will be considered the same thing as our safety.

We will meet and exceed all the best safety/public health protocols and practices available. We will apply the same diligent care to public health concerns as we have always applied to making Frying Pan and American Fish Company enjoyable places for you to dine and to socialize.

Third, things will not be the same as they were before. Too much has happened. Too many good lessons have been learned.

But, since things can’t be the same, we have made a decision.  We are going to be better than we were, even better than before.

When we do reopen we will need your help. We must all be patient to make sure we follow the new social distancing rules that will be required. We must all do our part to keep everyone safe and healthy.

Rest assured you’ll be the first to know as soon as we have definitive opening dates.

Be safe. Be well. Help those you can help.

See you soon,
