Hanover Shopper | January 2021

Hanover restaurants are working harder than ever to ensure the cleanliness of their dining rooms while still providing their signature dishes and service with limited capacity.

The Patron Mexican Restaurant (7610 Left Flank Road, Mechanicsville), which is known for its delicious Tierra y Mar (steak and seafood) – and, of course, their margaritas - is currently offering full service and outdoor dining, takeout, and delivery of their mouth-watering Mexican food. They are also following CDC guidelines, requiring face masks in their dining room, and upholding the strict cleaning standards with hospital-grade disinfectant that they have always followed. Visit them online at thepatronrestaurant.com.

Iron Horse Restaurant (100 S Railroad Avenue, Ashland) is taking reservations for patio and indoor dining. In addition to rigorous cleaning and sanitation protocols, Iron Horse is suggesting limited dining times and limiting maximum party sizes. They are still offering takeout orders and delivery through DoorDash of a limited menu, including their delicious farm-to-table hand-cut filet and hangar steaks. Their menu also includes their well-known Scottish salmon and house-made meatloaf. Visit them online at ironhorserestaurant.com.

Hanover Café (13185 Hanover Courthouse Road) is also open for indoor and outdoor seating, takeout, and curbside carryout – see their website for hours, as they may differ during this time. Staff is required to disinfect surface between visits and masks are required if you choose indoor dining. The café is best known for its great coffee and desserts, as well as comfort food like salt herring with fried apples, cornbread, and fried potatoes. Visit them online at hanover-cafe.edan.io.
