We work closely with companies in the area, all provide tasty food and excellent customer service. The catering companies that you are able to select from are: Nelson’s Chicken, Chic Eats Catering or Navarre Hospitality Group. We are happy to connect you with our contacts!

01. We cannot wait to treat our guests to some awesome food! What are our options for food?

We love a good party! And because we want you and your guests to have the best experience possible, we let our catering teams host all things concerning the bar. Our preferred caterers have bar package options that can be added to your current package. We do not allow any friends or family members to “play bartender” for the evening, we leave that to the pros!

Not at all! We want you to host the party that you are dreaming of.

For each event that hosts a bar, we hire a local law enforcement officer to patrol the grounds for the event. Event hosts are required to pay the officer on duty for their time ($40/hour).

04. We have guests in our group that like to have a good time, especially when an open bar is on the table. What does security for our event look like?

Any dessert you are wanting for your event does not have to go through the catering team that you have selected.

However, we do like to remind all guests coming to the property that the barn was built in the 1800’s. We have done our best to accommodate all individuals coming to the property, but we do suggest a family member or friend to assist those who may have difficulties. If there are every any specific questions about our accessibility, please reach out to a Country Strong team member. We are happy to answer your questions regarding accommodations!

Absolutely! We are thrilled to hear you are set on Country Strong. In order to accommodate your larger guest party, we are able to bring in a third party rental company in order to set up a large tent. There, we will be able to set up overflow seating. 

12. We fell in love with the venue and cannot imagine hosting our guests anyplace else. Our guest list is greater than your maximum capacity, is there a work around this?

Absolutely! We do ask that decor is set up and used in a way that there is no damage made to the existing property or structures. Any decor that does not belong to Country Strong should be set up by the client or their friends and family.
