Ways to Support Local Businesses While Social Distancing

This month, rather than posting about upcoming events around Charlotte, we’ve decided to inform our readers about ways to give back and support local businesses while abiding by government-mandated regulations. As a local business ourself, the staff and agents at Helen Adams Realty are constantly looking for ways to give back to the community and we are hopeful that sharing this information will help us all support each other.


Because of COVID-19 statewide precautions, restaurants and bars have temporarily closed dine-in operations. Many of these local eateries, though, are still offering options for take out and delivery. If you’re staying home and want to help the service industry, check out Charlotte Agenda’s Virtual Tip page, allowing the Queen City’s neighbors to leave virtual tips via Venmo for our local servers and wait staff.


Check out the list below for some of our local favorites that are still open for dine-out business. Also be sure to check Charlotte Center City, Charlotte Agenda, CharlotteFive, and other online resources for more ways to support local businesses and other lists of available restaurants. In most cases, restaurant updates are being posted on social media so be sure to follow these businesses on Instagram and/or Facebook for the most up to date news and menus.
