Evan Pozios reversed his decision to resume dine-in service at Gus’ Coney Island in downtown Mount Clemens because he wanted to ease the burden on his staff and didn’t want to tempt fate.

Gus’, like many other restaurants in Macomb County, reopened its dining room to limited seating June 8, following its closure nearly three months earlier due to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s executive order temporarily banning on-premise dining as part of the state’s COVID-19 response.
