The Concept
The idea behind this series of menus is to have an offering of something that is of the highest quality, while maintaining a more relaxed, casual atmosphere, in a lower price range.

Notes to help you plan:
•    Service time ~ In order to keep the prices low, these menus are designed with a 60 minute, serve time. We will have the dinner set up for say 6 p.m. and maintain it until 7 p.m.

•    Minimum numbers ~ are in place, to cover the cost of running these styles of dinner. If you have rented the entire Inn and would like to have one of these dinner options but you are below the minimum number, we would require a supplement of ½ the price of the missing number of guests in addition to the cost of the attending guests at full price. Please remember we do require final confirmation of numbers, 3 p.m. the day before the dinner or your last email confirmed number will stand.

•    Maximum numbers ~ with these menus the capacity is limited due to seating and buffet configurations. During summer months, ask about raising it for outdoor dining.

•    Self-served dinners ~ these are buffet style, with the service during dinner     being, the clearing of tables, and clean up.  If you would like to upgrade these to full service please ask for the additional costs (linens, table settings, table service, beverage service, coffee tea, desserts, etc.)

•    Upgrades are available ~ designed to take these menus to another level while still maintaining great value. Upgrades vary depending on the base menu, please ask.

•    Coffee & Tea service is available for $2.75 per person and can be added to any menu.
•    Kids Between the ages of 2 and 11 can eat off of these menus for $15.75

Can we use these menus for our main wedding dinner?  Yes. If you are considering this option for a wedding or celebration meal please ask for details as this is not what these menus were originally planned for and taking the time to clarify some of the details would be good for organizing. As a rough budget guideline, it could be possible to bring these menus to a table served standard for approximately $5.00-12.00 per person extra.
