What advice do you have for brides who are trying decide between a sit-down vs. buffet style meal? Consider the size of your party and the type of menu you want to offer. For a more intimate style setting, choose a set menu with items that reflect your tastes. Buffet style meals seem to be a more suitable option for larger groups, but it doesn’t mean you have to limit your options. Have fun with it by creating a themed menu that showcases your style and the wedding’s theme.
Do you offer menu tastings? Yes, you may book by appointment with our banquet manager.
Do you have a set menu or do you offer custom menus? We offer several set menus ranging from $59 up to $100+ per person and welcome the opportunity to create a custom menu that best suits your tastes. We are also happy to cater your event large or small.
What advice do you have to offer brides and grooms? Try not to stress and have fun! Allow others to help you and handle any surprises that may occur on your special day so you can have time to enjoy each other and the festivities.
