Helpful Policy Information
Menu Selections & Guest Counts
Decisions regarding guest counts, menu selection, room set up, and event dates and times must be finalized two weeks in advance of your event. We are able to schedule events outside of normal business hours if needed and may be able to accommodate special dietary needs.
To ensure meal satisfaction groups of 25 and over must plan meals utilizing the established banquet menu.
Outside Food and Drink
Because of liability concerns, outside food and drink is generally not allowed. If you are having a special event and would like to bring specialty items, please talk about this with us to determine if an exception can be made.
Deposit & Cancellation Policy
A $100 deposit is due at finalization of the event agreement. This deposit will be applied to the total cost of the event. At least 48 hours notice is required for cancellations, or the deposit will be forfeited.
Payment is due at the time of service. We do take most major forms of payment. Banquet charges will be accumulated on one bill. If there are special circumstances where this would create a hardship, please discuss this with us as arrangements are finalized. An 18% gratuity and sales tax of 8.5% will automatically be added to all banquet orders.
Audio/Visual Equipment, Connectivity, & Presentation Options
The Claddagh Room has a 72” HD television with Dish Network and we are able to provide connectivity to most devices for use in presenting. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the facility. We can also help you present the old-fashioned way with portable white boards or flip charts. If you would like to bring your own presentation equipment or materials, please let us know.
Fees, Set Up, Decorations, & Gifts
The $100 room use fee will be waived when there is a food and beverage order exceeding that amount. There are no fees for decorating, set up, chairs/tables, audio/visual equipment use, or ceremony activities (like cake cutting). There is a $5 per table cloth fee and a minimum $100 purchase for use of the service bar. Our team can do some limited decorating and your event team may come finalize custom set up touches and decorating up to one hour prior to the start of your event. If you would like to purchase a gift from our Gift Shop, we would be happy to wrap it and have it ready for your event at no extra charge.
Parking is free in the City of Ocean Shores and there is availability at Galway Bay. If you have special parking or transportation needs, please let us know. There is also limited reserved parking available by arrangement.
