Become the favorite eatery that your customers frequent. Embrace social media and new technologies to connect and share moments with your loyal patrons.
Seriously. Hire a professional team if you can afford it. It's okay if you have to take your own photos and write your own text, but make sure they're so good that visitors just want to check out.
Google Business, Bing Places, Facebook business are free. Are there any other (possibly free) listing directories where you operate? Make sure you get listed.
It's free marketing (most of the time). Organize events, create worth sharing status, image. Post regularly and post things people want to share.
Can you share recipes? Tips on certain cooking techniques? Be creative. Well-crafted content can attract visitors and convince them to give you a try.
Are you accepting online bookings yet? At the very least you should provide a contact form. How about online ordering if you offer delivery?
Consider using your welcome page to display your latest promotions or loyalty program if you offer free WiFi at your store(s). If you haven't heard about it, consider Social Wifi which allows users to log in with their Social Accounts. This is an ideal way to provide more convenient authentication for your customers and to learn more about them.
Place signs encouraging guests to take pictures of their food, your signature cocktail, or a silly statue. Create opportunities for guests to share. Reward posts that get the most shares. Let your guests know which social network your restaurant uses, as well as the hashtag to use. Run a contest for everyone who shares a photo with your hashtag.
