Editor's note: We did our best, but we had to stop updating this list on June 4, the night before Oahu restaurants reopened their dining rooms, when announcements from eateries started coming in too fast for us to keep up. For the latest on who's open for dine-in on Oahu, Maui, Big Island and Kauai, check out the updated Food-A-Go-Go site.

More than two months after a government order forced them to close their dining rooms and switch to takeout only, Oahu restaurants on Thursday afternoon finally got the conditional green light to reopen. New rules include spacing tables at least six feet apart, masks for all diners and front-of-house staff except when seated at tables, and hourly sanitizing of surfaces and menus.

We immediately put out a call on Instagram to see who would be reopening; within minutes restaurants started responding. Here's a preliminary list of where you can go back to eat in on Oahu starting June 5.
