Mario’s Place Catering Services:
Why Settle for Less
At Mario’s Place Catering we pride ourselves on being able to produce our quality food and service no matter what the venue. We have a full mobile kitchen that eliminates the need to “prepare and deliver” food. While “sit-down” service is our specialty, we also offer “station-style” service where your food is monitored and served by our professional staff.

This is an alternative to buffets where food is left in chaffers and tends to become overcooked or is left unattended. Please contact us with any questions you may have concerning planning, menus, service or rentals. We gladly invite you meet with our catering coordinator and to try samples at our restaurant to help you make the right food and budget choices. Need rentals? A wedding cake? Centerpieces? We can help.

Whether it’s a party of five or five-hundred we can help you plan and coordinate your event with our list of rental company contacts, florists, bakers and so on. If you do not see your favorite items listed on our menu pages it is no problem. If there is something special you want just ask we will be happy to work out custom menus to suit your tastes and dietary needs.

Mario’s Place also provides full bar services, beer and wine as well as a seasoned bartender staff for your event. We invite you to taste the difference. You’ll be surprised that the area’s finest is also affordable!
