The days of most restaurants staying open late are long gone.

Since the COVID pandemic, many bars and restaurants in the area don't stay open as late as they use to. Unfortunately, that poses a problem for the night owls and second or third-shifters out there.

Nowadays, it is very difficult to find anything other than a fast food restaurant that is open late enough to grab a late dinner. That leaves many with the choice of fast food garbage, a stop at the grocery store (if it is open,) or just making something at home. Sure it is not the end of the world, but sometimes you just need a good bar burger or a delectable deep-fried morsel.

Don't worry, we've got you covered. Below you'll find a list of 18 different bars or restaurants that serve up food later than 9 pm on any given night. Some of the kitchens may still not be open as late as they used to, but hey, it's something. You'll thank them when that craving for wings or fried mozzarella sticks hits you after a few drinks with friends.

I called each of the places below to find out how late the kitchen stays open at each establishment throughout the week and listed them below. Just as a friendly reminder, be aware of the time. Don't be that jerk that strolls in at the very last second to place an order. Plan ahead and respect those working their ass off in the kitchen!

Check out the list below and if we missed any, be sure to pass them along in the comments.
