We offer 3 different services for our meals. #1 - Drop Off and Set Up, 25ppl or more. We deliver your chosen menu hot and ready to serve, set it up on your buffet line and then leave you to enjoy your meal. #2 - Full Catered Meal, 40ppl or more. We bring the food to your chosen location, set up the buffet line and stay during the meal service to monitor, refresh and replenish the buffet line.

(an additional fee would apply) At this time, we are unable to offer table service or family style dining. #3 – Pick Up Meal, 10ppl or more.
