When we are talking about restaurants – not just Dunedin restaurants – there are five main types that most of your favorite eateries fit into – casual dining, family style dining, fine dining, fast casual dining, and fast food.

Dunedin Restaurants: What Are The 5 Different Types of Restaurant?

Casual Dining

Casual dining is similar to casual fast dining, but in casual dining, you can dress comfortably, but you will have to wait a little while to get your food. At Sandbar we somewhat fall into this category because we are casual all day long, but because our food is cooked hot on the grill, you don’t have to wait long at all to get your meal!

Family Style Dining

Family style dining is a unique type of dining where customers sit around a large table and the dishes are brought to the table for everyone to share. Often these types of restaurants sit strangers together around one table. This can be a great opportunity to meet new people and to enjoy a lot of good food, but if you aren’t a very social person, this isn’t the type of dining you would enjoy.

Family style dining has traditionally been limited to Asian style food and Southern-Style food.

Fine Dining

Fine dining is a great option for once in a while, but the food will cost a pretty good chunk of change and you’re going to have to dress up for this one! Sorry, this means plenty of advanced warning for everyone in the family to get ready and make sure you aren’t starving when you go, because you will have to wait for quite a while! These types of restaurants are usually not very family friendly, so if you have younger children, this isn’t the type of restaurant where you can have a family dinner!

Fast Casual Dining

Fast casual dining is right about where Sandbar Grill sits- we don’t expect you to get all dressed up and you can get your food without having to wait an hour for it to be prepared. Our grill is always hot and as soon as you order, we’ll get to work prepping your food. We offer you good food that you can grab on a lunch break or for a family dinner!

Most of your “regular” places are going to fit into the fast casual dining category.

Fast Food

We all know fast food, these are the global chains that we have all frequented at some point in our lives. The food is very inexpensive, but you’re not going to find a lot of healthy choices and the whole thing is designed for fast food and not customer experience!
