    From everyone at Second Empire, Thank You! We look forward to seeing you soon!

    We would like to thank all of our community, family and friends of Second Empire Restaurant and Tavern for your continued support and loyalty as we all go through these trying times together.

    We tried to offer curbside takeout meals to our community and again, thank you for those of you that supported us during these last few weeks, however, we found that we will be better serving our guests in our beautiful restaurant when we can once again serve you in our way that we have over the last 23 years.

    With that said, we have discontinued the curbside pickup at Second Empire.

    We certainly look forward to once again opening our doors, bringing back our wonderful staff and serving our guests in the near future.

    We will keep you updated on our social media pages and website.

    With Sincerest Gratitude,
    The Second Empire Team
