Catering and Group Dining

Menus

Our menus, designed by Chef/Owner Adam Sappington, change seasonally and are designed to highlight the market-fresh ingredients from local farms and ranches.

We take pride in supporting our local purveyors, as well as, offering a bar program that underscores local wine makers and spirits.

We request that you finalize your menu and beverage selections at least one week prior to your event date. We are happy to make whatever accommodations possible as long as it fits into the style and philosophy of The Country Cat and arranged in advance with our Event Coordinator. Please note that dishes are all examples and specifics are subject to change.  We will print menus for your event and are happy to personalize them with a title.  All menus are printed in black and white.

Food and Beverage Minimums

A food and beverage minimum will apply to each special event.  Rates may vary depending on your estimated guest count and event date.  Please note that the minimum does not include, service charge, rental equipment, or add-ons, such as floral charges.

Guest Count

We require a confirmed guest count 5 days prior to your event date.  We will be prepared to accommodate for 10% over the guaranteed guest count and we will charge for the final guest count or guaranteed guest count, whichever is greater.  If we do not receive a final count within the needed time frame, we will use the original guest count given.

 

Beverages

Beverages can be pre-ordered or charged based on consumption.  We can also offer a “no host” bar if desired.  If a no-host bar is requested, this does not go toward the needed minimums for the event.  Our Event Coordinator can assist you in choosing a craft cocktail off of our restaurant menu, as well as, any requested beer and wine selections.  Wine and beer selections do need to be made in advanced to insure that we can guarantee availability.

Cake Cutting Fees

Our pastry department is highly skilled in creating specialty cakes and desserts upon request.  If you wish to bring in your own cake in lieu of our dessert offerings, we will be happy to serve and plate it.  A $2.50 per person cake cutting fee will be charged to your final bill.

Audio/Visual Equipment

We have an HD projector, as well as, wifi, stereo, and DVD player.  If you wish to use our equipment, arrangements can be made.  We do request you bring in any necessary cables.

Payment & Cancellation Policy

We require a completed contract and a $150 non-refundable deposit to confirm a reservation.  All events are subject to a 20% service charge.  All events will be staffed with at least one attendant and one chef.  In the event another staff member is needed, a $65 fee will apply. Payment is due within 48 hours after the completion of the event. In the event of a cancellation within 24 hours of the event or if your group does not show up, the entire minimum requirement and 20% service charge will be charged to the credit card on file.
