Green Bay, Wis. (NBC 26) -- After nearly two-month-long hiatus, Hagemeister Park is back up and running.

The popular downtown Green Bay restaurant opened for takeout and delivery last Wednesday. While other restaurants were focusing on takeout and delivery during the "Safer at Home" order, Hagemeister's GM David Abbott said he thought it was best to play it self.

"We thought it was best to close," he said. "Safer for our customers and our employees."

Now, starting Wednesday, they'll be back at full speed. Hagemeister's dining room and riverside patio will be back open, with a few provisions.

"We've taken all the proper precautions," Abbott said. "Placing all tables six feet apart. We've hired extra staff to make sure everything is sanitized and cleaned for our customers."

"We have a pretty big restaurant so we're able to space out people probably better than other locations," he added.

Abbott said he expects a good crowd, especially with nice weather expected over the holiday weekend.

"Hopefully people will come down and come see us and check us out," he said.
