Cocktail & Formal Dinners

Groups of up to 120 guests can dine under the famed canopy of oaks on the mansion's terrace after tour hours. This is a perfect setting for corporate dinners, private parties, and other social events. A delicious selection of served appetizers, as well as salads, entrees, and desserts, are made by Executive Chef Antonio Reymundo using fresh local ingredients. Call us for a complete list of choices designed to please even the most particular of palettes.

Smaller groups of 30 or less can be pamper in true southern style in the formal dining room of the antebellum mansion. Groups of 18 or less may prefer to be served at our 16 foot antique dining room table!

The Big House is open to you and your guests, and guides in antebellum dress are on hand to offer tours and answer questions.

Private Parties









A cocktail reception held at the antebellum mansion is a truly unique experience for your group. Food stations and bars are set in and around the mansion. Events are held in an open house format with a main buffet set in the formal dining room and chef style stations set around the veranda. Tables and chairs as well as entertainment are set on and around the terrace located in front of the mansion. While some seating is available, this type of function is typically a standing reception, which allows for up to 250 guests to mingle more freely throughout the mansion and immediate grounds.
