The following information should answer any questions you may have about our booking procedures and requirements.
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 2 starter, 3 entrée selections & 1 dessert. We do request a pre-count for the number of each entrée selection for parties over 50. We 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.
ROOM AND TABLE ARRANGEMENTS:
Our Main dining room can seat up to 90 people for a sit-down dinner. 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 50% of the total for the event. Deposits are non-refundable. Remainder of the non refundable payment is due 1 week before the function with final count.
A buy-out for the restaurant will require a minimum based on the amount of business we do for the time of year. The minimum amount does include all food and beverage ordered for the evening. It does not include 22% gratuity, 8% Maine state tax.
All group events will be charged 22% gratuity and 8.00% 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 alcohol to be brought in.
We are happy to acquire, 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.
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.
Cash & Carry: Guests pay for their own drinks as they are ordered.
