Buffet Style Service
With our basic buffet style service, 2-3 of our staff work your event. They generally arrive 1.5-2 hours before the meal time to set up equipment and prepare for service.
We provide everything necessary for the buffet. This includes tables for the buffet line, white tablecloths, steam tables to keep the food warm during service, a grill,
holding cabinets, a small tent, extension cords, etc. We also provide paper plates, flatware, wetnaps, toothpicks, napkins, sauces, and pickles.
During the meal our staff will man the buffet line, answering any questions guests have about the food and replenishing menu items as necessary.
It is sometimes possible to set up the buffet line so that people can serve themselves on both sides at the same time, though this requires advance
notice and prevents us from having someone there to answer questions.
After everyone has served themselves once, we generally keep everything out for around 20 minutes before packing up leftovers. We will not stop food
service until it seems as though everyone who may want more has had an opportunity to get some. Once food service is over, we pack fully prepared
leftovers into half sized disposable steam table tins and leave them for you. Our staff packs up our equipment and cleans up the food prep area before leaving.
Family Style Service
With our family style service, we put together trays of food with some of each menu item on them and bring these directly to the tables at the time of the meal.
We provide 1-2 trays per table depending on table size. We bring trays, serving utensils, and disposable paper containers to portion the food on the trays.
This requires 2-4 servers depending on the size of the event.
Our catering dinner and appetizer menus for staffed events are below. We can sometimes accommodate simple off-menu items for events if they can be reasonably
prepared and served using our equipment, so don’t be afraid to ask. Examples of simple off-menu items we’ve done before include potato salad, roasted carrots
with brown butter, and corn on the cob.
