From $25 per guest
Similar to sit down dinner, family style catering service is an inviting and interactive approach to your event and allows guests to get a chance to get to know each other as they dine making it feel like the holidays creating a fun family oriented atmosphere. Wait staff bring out large bowls and platters of food, which are then placed on the tables for guests to pass and self-serve. Perfect for weddings and other personal social gatherings.
PROS – All guests can serve themselves and begin eating at the same time. Fun and interactive for your guests. Like a buffet, guests can pick and choose exactly what they want on their plates. You can spread out activities (like dances and toasts) in between each course to keep guests engaged and maintain a nice energy throughout the meal service.
CONS – Like plated dinner service, family style may require more servers and may result in additional staffing charges. Takes up more space on guest tables. Food costs may increase due to making more food since there are no restricted portions.
