Menu Selection

The Scheduling and Event Planning Office is available to help you decide on an appropriate menu that fits both your event and your budget. Menu suggestions presented are the most popular selections offered. We do offer several signature items which can enhance your menu, and if there are any special dietary restrictions, we are happy to accommodate with ample notice.

The estimated number of guests and the final menu selection are due no later than three weeks prior to your event date. Final counts are due seven (7) days prior to your event.
