Working with us: details and costs
To start planning an event, take a look at our menus. That will give you some idea of what we do and the cost for different types of food. But remember that we can customize any of our menus, or cook up something entirely different, especially for you.
If you’re pressed for time, just give us a call, let us know your budget, how many people you need to feed and any food style preferences. We’ll get back to you with a few options.
Alcohol and other beverages
We offer a wide variety of beer, wine, champagne, cocktails and nonalcoholic beverages. We are fully licensed and carry liability insurance for any event at which alcohol is served.
For no host events (where your guests are paying for their alcoholic beverages) there is a $300 setup fee for full cocktail, beer and wine service. Mac’s will pour your product & put our insurance/liability in effect for a $300 fee plus hourly labor.
For hosted events (where you are paying for your guests alcoholic beverages) the cost is based on consumption, so we won’t know the exact price until after the event. But we can give you an estimate, based on our extensive experience with various types of events. In most cases, the $200 setup fee is waived for hosted events.
There is a $300 set-up fee for full cocktail, beer and wine service.
