Catering FAQ

Catering FAQ

How far in advance do I need to place my order?
We request a minimum of 24 hours notice for catering orders, 48 hours if your order is for more than 30 people.

Your packages aren’t exactly what I want, can I order something else?
Yes! In addition to our catering packages, everything on our menu is available a la carte.

How does the food come?
We are happy to put your fish, meat and sandwiches on a platter. We can also put your Big Salad on a platter and offer you a platter of farmer’s market vegetables to accompany your fish order. Depending on the volume of sides you get, they might come in a plastic bowl, however they might come in what we call “delis,” which are our take-out containers.

Can you put everything on a platter together?
To preserve the freshness of your food, we keep it separate on platters and in containers. Fish goes by itself, vegetables are by themselves, and all your sides like coleslaw, potato salad, tuna, egg salad, whitefish salad and pickles, will all be packed separately.

Is there a garnish?
We don’t put any garnish on our fish platters. We hand slice our fish and delicately fold it or lay it flat to arrange it. We think it looks stunning by itself!

How much should I get?
We recommend a pound of fish for every 6-8 people. For meat we recommend a pound for every 3 people. A quart of sides feeds between 10 and 15 people. Ask yourself: are my guests big eaters? Will I be anxiously fretting about running out of food? Do I want to make sure I have a little left in the fridge for me? Or, do I hate leftovers and want the food to be all gone at the end of my event?

What about cream cheese? I’m not seeing cream cheese.
Bagels all come with cream cheese. If you don’t need it, let us know!

Could you slice my bagels?
Sure, just ask!

Could you include plates, cutlery and napkins?
Again, yes—just ask! We don’t include them automatically with your order but are happy to give them to you!

Could you come to my party and help serve?
Ask us and hopefully we can make it work!

I’m still confused and need a little help.
We will gladly help you put together a great catering order! Call us at 424-744-8671 ext. 1 or email [email protected] to start the process.

Anything else I need to know?
We apply a 3.5% service fee to catering orders. The percentage is taken from the food subtotal and covers the cost of our platters and other disposable containers.
