Frequently Asked Questions

How long will I have the space?
The minimum reserved party time is 2 hours Sunday – Thursday, and a 3 hour minimum Friday and Saturday, but you may rent the space for as many hours as you would like.

May we order from the menu?
We have a very small kitchen, and it must accommodate all restaurant guests dining with us. The only way we can serve food efficiently is to limit our full menu to parties of 25 or less. Larger parties will be given buffet style service.

What is your buffet service like?
We can accommodate up to 60 people seated or 80 people standing with buffet service. You will work with our party planner to create the perfect menu for your event. We will have plenty of food to fuel your party, but it is not an all you can eat buffet. If you want us to keep it coming, please plan for that with our party planner, and it will be in your contract.

Can I bring decorations or cake?
Yes! Just let our planner know ahead of time if you plan to bring cake and/or decorate.

Can I play my own music or present a video?
If you reserve our back dining room or the full dining room, you can. Bring your laptop or iPad, and you can run it through our system.

Do you have live music options?
We have a lot of contacts with local musicians. We can help recommend the right band or artist for your event pending there is no disruption to our other customers. The cost/payment will be a separate agreement between you and the band.

What does the reservation and service charge cover?
In order to have your space ready, we must stop seating at least one hour before your event. Your server(s) will be setting up for your event which means they will not be serving other guests. They will also break down after your event and cleanup, which usually takes another hour. During this time, they are solely dedicated to making your event the best it can be. The service fee we charge goes directly to the server(s).

What if I need to cancel my event?
For a standard reservation, you will need to cancel the event 48 hours prior or we keep the $100 deposit. For a Private Room reservation, you will be required to cancel one week prior or we keep the deposit

Reservation Rules:

Things to Remember

Parties of 12 or more require $100 deposit. Groups of 25 or more require private space rental.

Your entire group must be seated within 30 minutes of the scheduled time, after which, we reserve the right to pull unused tables to seat other customers.

When the entire party arrives, the deposit can be applied to your bill or refunded onto the same debit/credit card used to make the reservation the next business day.
