Legislative Updates
All the latest proposed and latest breaking legislation from Dover.  Now is the time to meet with legislators, especially as we are approaching a local election year.  There is A LOT of anti-restaurant legislation out now…and will be voted on as soon as legislators are back in session.

  • The Minimum Wage increase, and proposed end of training wage
  • Cash Wage increase – server and bartender wage could go from $2.23 an hour to as high as $6 when minimum wage increases to $9.25!  Current legislation proposes increasing the cash wage to 65% of the current minimum wage. 
  • Elimination of tip pooling
  • Dept of Health Letter Grading for all DE restaurants (in your window!!)
  • Pets on restaurant premises/in outdoor areas/on patios – this is a hotly debated issue!

Bookings no longer allowed on this date.
