We want to let you know that we take your health and safety very serious. We are a community gathering place, and we believe that food and drink with family and friends define our quality of life. It is now a City mandate that all Restaurants and Bars close. We adhere to the mandate and effective March 17, 2020 we will close Hard Grove as a result of the COVID-19 virus. We care deeply for our team, our families and our guest and it is with everyone’s safety and well-being in mind that we have come to this difficult conclusion to close Hard Grove. We will remain in contact with City office’s and provide updates . Real time status and updates, details and of our outreach efforts and more can be found on our social media page @hardgrove284 and our website www.hardgroverestuarnt.com. We want to take this time to thank you of all your understanding and loyalty during this challenging time. Be back soon for “Mojitos”. Hard Grove Family
