The Lafayette Inn & Restaurant


When planning a catering event, we sit down with you and help prepare the most perfect and memorable experience possible. Aside from selecting the meal service options, (buffet, passed appetizers to plated service) we explore the full range of wines that may be offered. Each catering event is custom designed to ensure personal results. Quality food, interesting presentation, and superior service are never compromised because of group size.

The Inn has become a favorite destination for wedding receptions and special events. A number of venues are available to our clients. Elegant Formal Events for parties up to fifty people are served in our Dining room. Expansive Buffets for larger events can be held in our Courtyard (just off of the dining room). Work with our Catering Consultant to select items from our popular menu, or provide us with a "Wish List" and let the Chef(s) deliver!

Social Events and Business Meetings for groups smaller than twenty-five can be hosted in our Tavern Room. We will be happy to provide a Chef’s Choice menu to suit any budget.

Whether you wish to conduct business in a private setting or an intimate dining experience, we will be happy to set up to suit your needs.

If you are planning your wedding, consider The Lafayette Inn as your destination. We are a full service wedding destination. Please visit our Wedding Page for more details.

Off-site Events

As with events held at the Inn, we customize each menu based on client selections and budget. Our off premise events range from delivering a Coffee Break or Business Luncheon to full service, formal dining events. We can arrange for a variety of services, from providing furniture rental to obtaining tents and portable shelter.

We have successfully hosted events in home settings, and we have worked with area vineyards to provide catering services at their locations.

Our philosophy: Catering is not simply an opportunity to serve food, but is our best opportunity to introduce others to the quality experience which The Lafayette Inn has to offer.
