Question about prepping long table for large egg

So I have already stained the long table a darker stain.

But would it be advisable to apply a coat of polyurethane to make it easier to clean up and keep grease stains from forming.

Are there any downsides to doing that? It seems like when I had mentioned that to a couple salesmen where I got the egg, they had never known anyone doing that before.

    Straight polyurethane yellows and cracks outside.  Helmsman makes a Spar urethane that's designed to be sun and weather resistant.  It is advisable to use it to retard stains and discoloration from the sun and water.
    This is my signature line just so you're not confused.
