A restaurant was a business which prepared and served food and drink to customers in return for money, either paid before the meal, after the meal, or with an open account. Meals were generally served and eaten on premises, but many restaurants also offered take-out and food delivery services. Restaurants varied greatly in appearance and offerings.[source needed]
