Do I need to rent the entire facility or just one room for my group?

For groups of 150 or fewer, the front room (Assembly Hall) is usually sufficient, providing plenty of space without feeling overwhelming.

For larger groups, either the back room (Exhibition Hall) or the entire facility are great choices.

What’s the actual layout?

The front room (Assembly Hall) is perfect for most functions, including weddings and receptions. It measures 3,482 square feet, and the small meeting room immediately adjacent is approximately 560 square feet.

The back room (Exhibition Hall) measures 7,732 square feet and is perfect for larger events such as oyster roasts, pig pickings, and business expos. We also offer a stage and stage setup (at competitive cost) for use in the back room.

The entire facility measures 14,118 square feet and is rentable as well.

Our commercial kitchen is available for your use (at competitive cost).
