View Menu link on Restaurants Local Business Page


Restaurant Local Business Pages are displaying View Menu and Menu links. These links are algorithmic / semantically created and cannot be added by the owner of the Restaurants Local Page.

To ensure that the Restaurants own menu is displayed, restaurants will need to provide clear signals on the Menu page for Google.
