Help Us Help You!!!
Prior to speaking with one of our catering coordinators, please have a good idea of the following:
Budget & Headcount
Both are necessary for us to prepare an accurate quote.
Browse our menus or bring some ideas of your own. Be sure to include any appetizers, salads, beverages or desserts.
Rental Items & Florals
Decide if you will need any rental items (tables, tablecloths, flatware, linens, etc.), floral arrangements or centerpieces.
Do you have a place to hold your event? We offer several distinctive, elegant spaces that can accommodate large groups.
Frequently Asked Questions:
At High Tide Catering we understand that planning an event can be a lot to handle. Don’t forget, we are here to help!!! Don’t hesitate to ask any questions you might have regarding your upcoming event. We will do everything possible to make your occasion a success. Below are some of our most frequently asked questions.
How much notice is needed for catering?
We can accommodate most requests within 24 hours!!! Although we do recommend more notice to insure your event goes exactly the way you planned, it is never to late to book a “High Tide” event!!
How long can you expect to wait for a quote?
Once you provide us with all of the necessary specifics for your event, you will have a quote within 1-2 business days. We take great pride in working on a close, personal level with our clients so that we may get a feel for exactly what they are looking for in their event. The more time we have, the better!!!
How much food should I order?
This is another one that varies greatly depending on the event. Obviously the number of hors d’ oeuvres will be lower if you plan to serve entrees and desserts. On the other hand if you are looking for a classy cocktail party with heavy hors d’ oeuvres the numbers will change. Again, this is where we set ourselves apart from the “other guy’s”, we want to get to know you and your guests expectations and interests, making the entire event more impressive.
How are rental items handled?
We offer a large selection of linens, flatware, glasses, tables and decorations to compliment any style or taste. We also work closely with other rental facilities offering you the highest quality for the lowest price. All rental fees will be calculated and charged based on your specific needs.
What will the servers wear?
We like to leave this one completely up to you. From black & white formal attire to an outfit to match the theme of your event, our friendly staff will be dressed to impress!
What is the charge for a server?
We recommend using one server for every 50 guests. We also offer highly trained bartenders and station attendants for every event. The amount of staff depends greatly on the individual demands of the event. All prices are quoted by the hour, with a 3 hour minimum.
Do you require a deposit?
We require a 50% deposit with the signed Catering Agreement. The remaining balance to be paid upon completion of service. We accept cash, checks or credit cards.
