Dining options

The dining options your configure for your restaurant on the Dining options page are displayed as available options on Toast POS devices and Toast online ordering platforms. Restaurant employees placing orders using a Toast POS device, and guests placing orders on online ordering channels select a dining option such as dine-in, delivery, or takeout from the list of available options. The dining option informs the kitchen whether they should plate or package the prepared food.

The Dine In, Take Out, and Delivery options are already configured for your restaurant. Each new dining option you create must be associated with one of the following behaviors:

  • Dine in

  • Take Out

  • Delivery

  • Curbside

You configure dining options for your restaurant on the Kitchen >Dining options >Dining options page in the Toast administration back-end.

You must have the Web setup > Kitchen / Dining Room Setup access permission to view and configure dining options.

For instructions on creating a new dining option, see Configuring Custom Dining Options. For detailed information about each setting available on the Dining options page, see Dining Options configuration settings.

If your restaurant uses Toast Online Ordering, the dining options you configure on this page are displayed as configuration options for dining option settings on the Online ordering page. For more information, see Dining options for Toast online orders.
