We start our events at 20 people. Our dining room can seat 35 people. Our patios can accommodate up to 50. Our Yard (amphitheater) has seating for 100, but can accommodate much larger groups standing, or with additional seating.

We offer a private event menu. All food is setup buffet-style for parties over 20 people. Your menu must be finalized 10 days prior to your event.

You are welcome to use our existing restaurant seating. We cannot move any furniture out of the space. We recommend using a third party to source additional chairs and tables for yard events.
