Gov. Mike DeWine and state health officials lifted their mandatory shutdown of all dine-in services, which began March 15, on May 21, and many restaurants and pubs began serving diners that very night. But large numbers of restaurant owners decided to wait until after the Memorial Day holiday, and some chose to wait until mid-June. A  handful have not yet announced their reopening plans.
