The Upper St. Clair commissioners unanimously approved outdoor dining for the future Bonefish Grill in the township.
The restaurant's plan for outdoor dining is in compliance with the township's ordinance, including its hours of operation to end at 10 p.m.
Commissioners gave approval for the construction of the restaurant in May.
It will be located near the new Target that is being constructed in South Hills Village.
An engineer representing Bonefish Grill said officials hope to open the restaurant in December 2012.
