WooCommerce Restaurant Ordering

Restaurant Reservations Plugin


One of Barn2’s newest plugins, the WooCommerce Restaurant Ordering plugin was developed specifically with restaurants in mind. With it you can enable customers to reserve a table and pre-order their food at the same time, using the WooCommerce Bookings extension.

Although there are other WordPress plugins that let your clients reserve tables, these are standalone and don’t integrate with your food ordering system. If you’re looking to integrate the two, then we recommend the WooCommerce Restaurant Ordering plugin.

The plugin lists your menu in a one-page order form, perfect for food ordering. Customers can then choose their foods and reserve online, either for home delivery or to eat in the restaurant.

    1. Unfortunately you’re right, I’ve updated the post to reflect the fact that while these are the best of what I could find, that doesn’t mean that they are great solutions. I think it’s a niche that still has to be filled by a truly leading and exemplary plugin. In the meantime, as you mention, there are some themes which have had a go at this.

  1. I’m glad that you’ve not included some of the more popular restaurant plugins, because they don’t really deliver (things like easy restaurant reservation). I’d like you to check out ResRes as well, which is a new plugin released in the last month or so. The free version is here: https://wordpress.org/plugins/resres-restaurant-reservations/ and there’s a premium version that we can give you a copy of if you want to know more.

    Thanks a lot!

  2. Its great to see some excellent plugins available on the web. The Restaurant Manager plugin available for free from WordPress at https://wordpress.org/plugins/restaurant-manager/ is also fanatastic. It offers fantastic reservation management facilities and an online booking form with a great admin restaurant scheduler.

    If you need to create restaurant menus easily you can create meals in the admin and assign them to multiple menus. Laptop Logo mentioned that they edit menus daily so if you needed to move your meals around the menus this plugin makes that easy. You can also add special requirements to each meal item. http://www.syntaxthemes.co.uk/restaurant-manager/

  3. Jean:

    I’m looking for a reservation WordPress plugin allowing me to run a directory with 200 different restaurants. Reservation plugin must be able to send reservation to the restaurant on the restaurant page only and not to the other 200. Don’t want to cannibalize the person’s reservation information or expose their email to anyone other then those authorized.

    Is there such a plugin?
    Thsnks and keep up the great reviews!

  4. Hi, I’ve got a client that wants a booking system that allows for the e-mail subject line to include the date of the booking – is anyone aware of such a thing?

  5. Your mentioned plugins are really helpful.
    I want to suggest you All in One Reservation Plugin.
    Which is helpful to every kind of reservation.
