Thank You for choosing Gentelin’s to help you in executing the perfect celebration of any type. We specialize in engagement parties, wedding rehearsals, receptions, and bridal/baby showers. Our banquet facilities are also popular for businesses wanting to conduct meetings over dinner.
ACCOMMODATION – Our banquet room holds up to 50 people while the front of the restaurant holds up to 75 people. The front dining room can be used during the daytime, or can be reserved at night under special circumstances. Luncheons are welcomed for groups of 20 people and larger. They can be held Tuesday thru Sundays beginning anytime after 11 am (unless you choose to use the front dining room which would have to start no later than 1:30 pm).
PRICING – There is no room charge, only food and beverage. A select menu can be created at your request.
24 OR FEWER GUESTS – You may order directly from our current dinner menu.
25 TO 35 GUESTS – A select menu must be created. Select up to three salads and/or soup, four entrees, and three desserts off of the following dinner menu. A custom menu will be printed for each of your guests to order from. If you would like a special message on the menu, please let us know.
36 OR MORE GUESTS – Only one entrée choice for the entire group or pre-order off of a select menu. If you do have guests pre-order from a select, place cards will be necessary to ensure efficient service.
BAR SERVICE – Bar and beverage service can be customized to fit your needs. Bar beverages can be restricted entirely, available for purchase by guests individually (cash bar), or be included on the dinner bill. You may select to only provide certain items (beer/wine) or only one drink per person or set a cap on the dollar amount for the bar.
CATERING – If you are interested in Gentelin’s catering an event, we generally follow the same guidelines as our banquets. You may choose to simply pick up food, have it dropped off at your location for a delivery fee ($25 in the Alton/Godfrey area,) or choose to have your event fully staffed. The hourly rate for service staff is $15 per hour. Caterings are staffed with one person per 25 people. Meals can be made to order with the addition of a private chef. The hourly rate for a private chef is $20 per hour.
Please choose your menu at least one week before your event and have a final guest count 48 hours prior.
