Restaurant Story is one of the pioneers of food preparation and restaurant management games in the free-to-play market. Since its initial launch for the IOS in 2010, Restaurant Story has accumulated enough downloads. This point resulted in an Android port in 2012 and a sequel in 2014. Restaurant Story is also one of the very first social games that made use of the restaurant theme.
Although it’s not as popular as most social games, Restaurant Story still managed to reel in a decent community of players who are still playing the game years later. Part of the players’ keeping coming back to the game comes from the regular content drop and events from the game’s developer Storm8.
In 2019 however, Storm8 dropped the final version update of Restaurant Story after the 2018 season. Although that may be the case, it does not mean that the developers already pulled the plug on the game, as you can still play the game on various platforms today including the PC. If you are planning to explore this classic game and your friends, then, the details of the 2018 season are the best way to get you started in the game.
