Jacket is not required, but many men do wear them. My husband did not, he was fine with a collard shirt. It is within walking distance. We walked and it was between .5-1 mile.

We look forward to your visit. We request business casual attire when dining at Peninsula Grill. Dining at the bar is more relaxed as is the courtyard. Cheers, Ryan
