Timing is everything when planning a catered event. We will arrive approximately one hour prior to your serving time in order to set up. Standard catering includes one hour of buffet-style service. Staffed buffet servers help expedite the flow of the line. The average time for 100 guests to get their plates in a buffet line is approximately 30 minutes.
Allow time for guests to arrive and find seating. This may be the perfect time for additional passed appetizers to be circulated and the bar or beverage station to open.
If it is a large event and the venue space allows, consider setting up multiple service stations to accommodate more guests. If the event includes a speaker or entertainment, this may add to the amount of time it will take for the event to conclude.
Depending on the chosen menu item, our minimums start at 50 or 100. Typically, the more guests you have, the less amount of money per plate is charged. For example, a 12-oz. Rib-Eye Steak will cost $41.95 per plate for 75-99 guests, but will cost $37.95 per plate for 250-400 guests.
If you have more than 100 guests, it's a good idea to add an additional buffet line or additional serving stations in order to accommodate guests and avoid long lines.
If you do not reach our catering minimum, we are happy to offer our delivery menu.
Our standard catering service includes setup and cleanup of our service line. If needed, we can always provide bussers and wait staff at an additional charge.
Our catering coordinators can help you plan and make sure everything is kept tidy during the event and taken care of at its conclusion.
