PRIVATE PARTIES

PRIVATE DINING Space

we have the perfect place for your next business dinner meeting, rehearsal dinner or holiday party.

About Our Private Dinner Parties

Our private dining rooms can accommodate groups from 12 to 60. The entire restaurant can be rented for groups up to 150 guests. They can accommodate special features such as audio visual equipment and live music, which makes it the perfect location for a dinner program presentation, rehearsal dinner, anniversary/birthday bash, family celebration, fundraiser or wedding reception.  Our sample menus (prix fixe or otherwise) give an idea of the breadth of what we can offer and are subject to minor changes at any time. Please advise us of any special dietary needs and we will do our best to accommodate them. Private room reservations may require a Food and Beverage (F & B) minimum for the exclusive use of the room. F & B minimums vary based on the season and/or day of the week and will be negotiated and finalized when booking your reservation.

Menus:   We are delighted to create your own special menu based on your budgetary requirements and culinary preferences based off of our regular dinner menu which changes “Slightly Nightly” (see tab below for sample options). There may be additional charges for any specialty cakes brought in.

Beverage Service: We can serve a variety of wines from our glass pours or you can preorder from our extensive wine list. Premium liquors, interesting cocktails and a large selection of imported and domestic beers are readily available from the bar and we can provide an “open bar” or we can set up a limited or “cash bar” for your guests – all charged “as ordered” vs a flat rate per person.  Special wine orders are gladly accommodated but we regret we cannot allow any wines brought in.

Reservations: To make a reservation for your next special event call us at 910-256-6056 -OR- e-mail events@portlandgrille.com. For groups 6 or under that do not require a private room, you may also make reservations directly through our website or visit opentable.com
