Information and Policies
If you have any questions on our information and policies, please contact us at any time.
Communication is the key to a successful event!

Booking your Event: A non-refundable and non-ransferrable down payment of 250.00 is required to secure your date, along with a signed contract. Sorry, we cannot hold any dates without both the contract and down payment. Dates are booked on a first come/first serve basis.

Final Details: Final guest counts are required ten (10) days prior to your event. Please supply the breakdown of  adults and children in this count. Children under 12 are subject to a 25% discount. We also feature a Kid's Feast menu, for a minimum of twenty (20) children
.
So that we can properly organize and plan, all final arrangements such as menu selections, tableservice choices, times, etc. are required at least thirty (30) days in advance of your event.

Please advise in advance of any known food allergies or special meal requests needed for guests with medically special diets or food allergies.

We set up and supply tableservice for the guaranteed number of guests given with your final count. If you are setting your venue to seat more guests, we can supply additional place settings for a small additional charge. This must be pre-arranged.

Payment: Final payment is due three (3) days prior to your event. We do not charge any additional fees for paying with a credit card.

Michigan 6% sales tax is applied to all orders

Pricing  is valid for events booked and held in 2019 and for 2020 events booked prior to 1/1/20. We consider an event booked when a contract is signed and down payment is made.

Policies: Unless otherwise noted, minimum number of guests for listed pricing is 75, with a Friday, Saturday, Sunday catering dollar minimum of 1000.00. Certain venues and locations out of area do require a larger minimum number of guests and are subject to a travel fee. Many of these minimums and charges are listed on our Venue Page or you can contact us for more information.

For events serving more than 30 minutes past scheduled service time, additional fees will be billed to cover the additional labor costs and we cannot be responsible for food quality and temperatures.
  
Some venues do charge a catering surcharge. We do cover these surcharges for events with a pre-gratuity and pre-tax dollar minimum of 2500.00. If you have any questions on these surcharges and/or whether your venue charges us a charge, please contact us.

Tastings: It is very important that you "taste test" your caterer!
We do Tastings in a group setting. We feel that our menu items are best represented when prepped in bulk (such as for your event) and Group tastings best meet this goal. Anytime we scale recipes down to single portion/sampling sizes they do not properly represent the food taste that you can expect for your special event. Truth in Tasting is Extremely important!

We host small group tastings, generally weekday evenings throughout the year and in the winter months host a much larger weekend tasting. Please contact us for details.

  ​
Gratuity: A Minimum Gratuity will be applied to all invoices;
Gratuities are as follows:
15% for buffet
20% for sit down and family style dinners
Additional gratuity for outstanding service is always appreciated by our service staff.


Leftover Food: Remaining Food is always yours to keep! We
will package these food items for you and do include disposable packaging for bulk packing. We do not provide individual take home containers. It is at our discretion whether food is safe for further consumption and will not pack any item(s) that may be considered no longer safe to consume. Once our staff leaves your event, it is your responsibility to ensure that food is stored and handled safely. If your venue does not have proper refrigeration for these items, we suggest that you provide coolers for proper storage. If you do not desire to keep any remaining food, we will donate all leftovers to an area food kitchen/mission on your behalf.

Event Details: We are fully licensed and insured and regard food safety as our number one priority.
 
The amount of time that we are on site includes 60-90 minutes prior to dinner serving (or appetizer serving if we are providing the appetizers), 60-90 minutes for dinner serving, cake cutting and clearing and typically another 30 minutes to pack up. If additional time is needed, it can be pre-arranged. Please call for a quote.

Multiple buffet line set ups are encouraged for groups of 150 or more guests (room permitted). There is no additional charge for multiple set ups unless your group size is under 150 guests. The charge for multiple buffet set ups for smaller groups is 50.00.

Host provided foods are welcome. However, we cannot serve, heat or handle any food items not brought in by us (excluding
wedding cakes). All host provided food must be set at separate tables from our catering tables. Please make arrangements for
someone to set out, replenish and clean up from these items.

We do not provide or serve any alcoholic beverages including the opening of wine/champagne and pouring of such for a toast. We can make recommendations for certified bartenders and/or bar services.

Use of host or venue provided dishware is welcome! A special quote will be provided for you in regards to what is needed for us in regards to set up, cleaning, etc.

Table linens rented through us, are available prior to your event if needed for decorating purposes. Additionally, if linens are still needed after our departure, you will be responsible for returning these prior to the Wednesday following your event. Any rentals other than linens (glassware, carafes, etc) are to be returned the Monday following your event.

We ask that you have a rain plan for all out door events and make us aware of the "rain" plan prior to your reception day so that we can properly prepare for such an occasion. We also ask that outdoor events provide proper lighting for the safety of our staff.

We ask for a small staging area and/or kitchen area. Running water and electricity are not needed, we can provide our own water supply if arrangements are made in advance.
