  • Is The Dabney currently accepting reservations?
    • We are currently closed to in-house dining. However we now offer three distinct food experiences; Meat and Three on Wednesday (to-go), Prix Fixe on Thursday – Saturday (to-go), and The Dabney Summer Rental on Sundays which is a coastal inspired snack bar offered for patio seating, reservations required.



  • How does payment work?
    • If you are ordering online payment will be processed upon order & a 10% service fee will be added to the final bill. We ask that you pre-order all of your cocktails, wine and beer ahead of time to minimize any in-house transactions which allows us to continue to offer a safe takeaway experience.


  • What is the pick up process?
    • Your dinner(s) will be neatly packed and ready on the our bar at the time of your designated pick up/reservation. If you ordered any beverages they will be ready for you as well. You are welcome to pull up into the alley and double-park outside of the restaurant. If you arrive before your pick-up time and dinner is not yet ready, we ask that you please wait in the alley. We ask that you respect social distancing and 6-foot spacing designated by the blue lines marked inside the restaurant as well follow the exit signs posted at the end of the bar.


  • What if I have an allergy or restriction?
    • Unfortunately, we are unable to modify the set menu, but we have listed what dishes are friendly for major allergies on TOCK.


  • What if I am celebrating a special occasion?
    • We would love to celebrate with you! Please make a note of it when placing an order online, or feel free to give us a call and let us know what you are celebrating so we can make your evening special while you enjoy your dinner at home.


  • What is the largest single order you can accommodate?
    • The largest order we are able to accommodate for To-Go is 8 and for Summer Rental reservations up to 5.


  • Do you offer gift cards?
    • We do! Simply visit our website and select the Gift Card link.

Temporarily Closed

The Dabney Cellar is a tavern located around the corner from its restaurant counterpart and is the latest venture from co-owners chef Jeremiah Langhorne and beverage director Alex Zink. The Dabney Cellar features a robust wine list with a diverse assortment of wines by the glass as well as a raw bar, locally-sourced charcuterie and cheeses, and a concise menu of small shareable dishes.
