Our group menus are generally reserved for parties over 40 people. In order for us to give you the best service possible, we request that parties of 12 or more limit their menu selection to 4 entrees, making their selections from our regular dinner menu. For parties of 20 or more we can do 1 starter, 3 entrée selections & 1 dessert. Parties over 50, 1 starter, 2 entrées & 1 dessert. We do request a pre-count for the number of each entrée selection for parties over 50. Our Executive Chef, Peter Morency, will be happy to accommodate special vegetarian and dietary needs that your group may have. Your menu must be finalized 72 hours in advance of the event. We will be happy to customize your menu with a group name or salutation for your event. Prices quoted for food and wine when the agreement has been finalized are subject to proportionate increases to meet increased costs of supplies or operation at the time of the function due to increases in costs.
ROOM AND TABLE ARRANGEMENTS:
Our Main dining room can seat up to 100 people for a sit-down dinner and our more intimate Lighthouse Room (aptly named as it overlooks Goat Island Lighthouse as well as the entire harbor) can seat up to 12 people. Unfortunately, there is no way to split off the main dining room for parties smaller than 100 people so whether your group is 40 or 100 people, the buy-out fee is the same.
Your group reservation is guaranteed when we receive the signed event agreement, which your event planner will put together once all the specifics have been worked out (ie; menu & bar options) and we have received a credit card number or check for the deposit. Deposits for the main dining room are 25% of the total for the event. A deposit for the Lighthouse Room is $150.00. This deposit will go towards the remainder of the bill at the end of the event. Deposits are non-refundable.
During the holidays and peak season, due to increase in business there will be a two week cancellation period. If a party cancels less than two weeks before the event, 50% of the total will be charged. A buy-out for the restaurant will require a minimum based on the amount of business we do for the time of year. In the off season we may require $3000. to $10,000. with a $500. or a $1000. room fee and for buy-outs during peak season the minimum is $14,000.00 with a $1,000.00 room fee. The minimum amount does include all food and beverage ordered for the evening. It does not include 22% gratuity, 7% Maine state tax & the room fee.
All group events will be charged 22% gratuity and 7.00% ME sales tax. There is a $2.50 per person cake plating fee for any outside cakes brought to the restaurant. We do not allow wines to be brought in.
We are happy to acquire tents, tables, linens or any other rentals you may need for your party and decorate the room to your liking. Rental items acquired by Pier 77 will be paid for and added to the total at the end of the event.
The Lighthouse Room is a more intimate space
available for smaller parties.
1.Open Bar: Where your guests are allowed to order any amount of beverages, which will be rung as one tab and added to the total at the end of the event.
2. Cash & Carry: Guests pay for their own drinks as they are ordered.
3. Limited Bar based on consumption: beer and wine ordered by the case and based on consumption, or a two drink per person average based on $18.00 per person (allows for all wines by the glass and all premium liquors).
