PORT WASHINGTON — A Port Washington restaurant is planning to reopen its doors Wednesday, despite the Safer at Home order.

The Iron Hog Saloon announced on May 7 that it had plans to reopen at 3 p.m. on May 13.

"We have did our best the last few weeks to keep everything on the up and up. Hard times makes you relies that people can come together and help out even if it means doing it at 6 feet apart, unless you go to big box stores then anything is OK and safe," wrote the Saloon on Facebook.

Gov. Tony Evers' Safer at Home order does not allow restaurants to open their dining room or bars, limiting them to curbside carry-out, delivery or drive-thru only.

The order, which is currently being contested in the state Supreme Court, is set to expire on May 26. The state has seen significant improvement in metrics set by the state Department of Health Services in recent weeks, inching closer to Phase 1 of Evers' Badger Bounce Back Plan, a phased approach to the reopening of the state.

"We will be taking all precautions with keeping everything sanitized the best we can and distancing people that are together. Please If you don't feel like you are ready to come out yet don't," wrote Iron Hog Saloon.
