With Mother’s Day drawing ever closer, we want to let everyone know- Yes, we DO hold events that are open to the public. Generally, these are always holiday events and anyone wishing to attend must call in advance to make reservations.
Traditionally, we have always held public events for the following holidays:
- Mother’s Day
- Breakfast with Santa
- Old Fashioned Christmas Dinner & Show
With the exception of our Christmas events, seating times for our public events begin around noon with the last available seating time being 2:45pm. We can accommodate any size party, but to ensure you get your desired seating time, call ahead as soon as possible. Calling closer to the date may still work, as we sometimes get last minute cancellations. But typically, we do sell out for holiday events and we hate to disappoint any potential guests- so please call early!
If you would like to make reservations, please be aware that we don’t take payments the day of our events. We are a banquet facility, not a restaurant, and we don’t have cash registers on-site. Due to this reason, our prices for public events ALWAYS include tax and service charge (gratuity). When making your reservation, we will ask for a valid credit card to guarantee it. Then approximately one week before the event date, the credit card on file will be charged for that party’s total.
What if I need to cancel?
To make it easier on everyone, we ask that you call ahead to cancel at least (1) week ahead of time. Inside of this one week period, we will only cancel reservations in the case of extraordinary circumstances.
What if I have a large party, and several people want to pay for themselves?
Each member of the party who would like to pay should call to make reservations for only the amount of people they intend to pay for. Initially, the very first member of the party who calls should request a table large enough for everyone. All members of the party who intend to sit together should be able to fit at the table. After the table has been reserved, more individuals who would like to sit at that table may call and make a reservation under their own credit card and should request the table by name.
Will there be any brunch items?
With the exception of Breakfast with Santa, all of our holiday events are lunch or dinner events and do not include any breakfast or brunch type items. Since Breakfast with Santa is in the morning, this event features breakfast items. The specific menu for each event always varies. The menus typically feature a lot of our most popular items, prepared fresh for you by our on-site Chef.
Do I need to leave my server a tip?
Since your total charges include all tax and service, you are not required or expected to leave your server a tip. However, you may do so if you feel that you have received service that was above and beyond expectations. We love to hear that our servers are treating our guests very well.
I have dietary restrictions. Will there be any vegetarian or gluten free items?
We always try to accommodate special diets when we create our public event menus. There are always several vegetarian and gluten free items, from entrees to sides and deserts. Sugar free and gluten free deserts are generally available by request. If you have a special dietary restriction, please feel free to call and speak with our knowledgeable Event Staff. They would be happy to inform you of which items are diet-friendly.
Will there be champagne or alcoholic beverages?
Included with the price of your meal is water, tea, coffee, and lemonade. If you would like an alternative choice, most of our holiday events also feature a cash bar. Soft drinks and adult beverages will be available for purchase.
What is the age cut-off for children’s prices?
Adult pricing applies to everyone age 13 and above. Children’s pricing applies to ages 2-12. Infants 2 and under are free of charge. Please let us know when making your reservation if anyone in your party will require a highchair or booster seat. Our staff will pre-set those items at your table.
If you have any remaining questions concerning our public events, please call during business hours to speak with members of our Event Staff.
