Private Receptions at Restaurants with Separate Banquet Rooms
Some restaurants, such as Bubba Gump in Madeira Beach, Middle Grounds, Treasure Island, PJ’s in St Petersburg, and the Salt Rock Grill in Indian Shores offer separate spaces for reception gatherings. These event venues are all inclusive and appealing to busy brides planning an easy and less expensive gathering. Bar service is available and guests may order off of the menu or larger groups may request customized banquet menu.
Buffets or brunches are the least expensive. Some places have minimum requirements; others have no minimum requirements. The wall that separates the restaurant from the separate space is usually too thin to have a DJ or other entertainers. Due to the casual nature of these gatherings, linens and decorations are optional. Duration for restaurant receptions is from 2 to 3 hours, based on the establishment.
At the Island Way Grille in Clearwater there spaces private enough to bring in entertainment. For small groups seeking a romantic ambiance, there is a lovely room for up to 50 inside The Pearl, Treasure Island. The ceremony could take be done by the fire place. A few local restaurants, such as Watercolour Grill House inside the Marriott Sand Key, have deck space.
