We are a full service banquet facility, but do not have a restaurant on site; therefore, we are not able to offer food tastings. The same chefs and cooks have been preparing our food for over 19 years and in that time we have grown into the premier banquet facility in our region. We have not run a single advertisement in over 23 years and have prospered from “word of mouth” referrals.
Our chefs can prepare special meals for dietary needs such as gluten free, vegan, or food allergies. Please let us know at your final checklist and we will make sure that these guests are accommodated.
Yes, children meals are offered for ages 9 and under at a reduced price.
Kings Mills is a BYOB facility and you have one of two options regarding liquor. If you would like to bring in your own alcohol, we would provide a list of everything you need with the types and quantities. You can drop off the alcohol the week of the wedding and we will get everything set up for you. If you would like the liquor to be delivered, we have a brokerage service available that will deliver the liquor for the price at the state store with no other fees. We work with a bartender service to supply trained and knowledgeable bartenders for your event. The required tip for the bartender is $75 and he would also have a tip cup on the bar.
Generally a preliminary checklist is scheduled 3-6 months before the wedding reception and a final checklist is scheduled 11-13 days before the wedding date!
