Accessibility Ratings (WJAR) – Restaurants
Most restaurants have some areas that have poor wheelchair accessible seating. Bar areas in particular are often limited to bar stools only or “high top” tables. We have attempted to note these as often as possible but have not downgraded these restaurants.
Many restaurants have private dining rooms (either upstairs or downstairs) that have multiple steps and are not wheelchair accessible. If the main dining room is very wheelchair accessible, but there are steps to private dining rooms, we have provided a maximum WJAR 3 index for these restaurants. We always attempt to provide a “WARNING“ note for these restaurants. All too often I have attended a meeting, office party, conference or reception at a great restaurant, only to find the event is located in an upstairs private dining room accessible only with a flight of stairs. I am very sensitive to these situations, so please watch for my Warning notes.
