Experience Convenient Dining with Toast’s New Dine-In Feature on the Toast TakeOut App

Toast's new Dine-In feature on the Toast TakeOut App offers a convenient alternative to kiosks, allowing guests to select "Dine-In" at select Boston-area restaurants. Enhance your dining experience with this innovative feature.

We’re excited to introduce a game-changing feature now in Closed Beta: Dine-In on the Toast TakeOut App. This innovative option allows users to select “Dine-In” (in addition to Takeout or Delivery) at select Boston-area restaurants, offering a seamless and convenient dining experience.

What is the Dine-In Feature?

The Dine-In feature provides guests with the ability to choose dining in at their favorite restaurants directly from the Toast TakeOut App. This feature is designed as an alternative to traditional kiosks, making the dining experience smoother and more efficient.

How It Works

  1. Select Dine-In: When using the Toast TakeOut App, guests in the Boston area can now see a “Dine-In” option alongside Takeout and Delivery.
  2. Browse Nearby Restaurants: Guests can view a list of nearby restaurants offering the Dine-In feature.
  3. Place Your Order: Once on a restaurant’s page, guests can place their order just as they would for Takeout or Delivery. The process remains user-friendly and intuitive.

For Restaurant Staff

The Dine-In feature ensures that restaurant staff are well-informed about dining preferences:

  • Kitchen Tickets and Receipts: These will clearly display “Dine-In” as the dining option, signaling staff to plate the order instead of packaging it to-go.
  • Tab Names: Staff will see the guest’s full name on the tab, making it easy to call out the order when it’s ready.

Benefits of the Dine-In Feature

  • Enhanced Customer Experience: Providing a Dine-In option adds flexibility and convenience for guests, improving their overall dining experience.
  • Streamlined Operations: This feature helps staff efficiently manage and distinguish between dine-in and takeout orders, reducing confusion and enhancing service speed.
  • Alternative to Kiosks: With the rise of digital solutions, the Dine-In feature serves as a modern alternative to traditional ordering kiosks, saving space and resources.
  • Increased Engagement: Offering more dining options through the app can attract more users and increase engagement with your restaurant.


The Dine-In feature on the Toast TakeOut App is set to revolutionize the way guests dine at restaurants. By providing a convenient and efficient alternative to traditional dining options, this feature enhances both the guest and staff experience. Currently available in Closed Beta at select Boston-area restaurants, Toast looks forward to expanding this feature to more locations soon.
