All clients must use a professional caterer. Any caterer being used must be disclosed and approved by the rental coordinator one week prior to the event. You are responsible for contacting the caterer to make arrangements. The caterer is responsible for all personnel, materials and supplies required for the preparation and service of food and beverages.
Reiman Gardens has a list of preferred caterers who are familiar with the facility and our policies. If you choose to use a caterer not on this preferred caterer list, you will be charged the following:
Food and/or beverages are allowed in your rental area only. Your guests may not wander around the grounds with drinks or food.
All alcohol provided and served must be licensed by a professional caterer approved by Reiman Gardens.
Reiman Gardens strongly adheres to the laws and regulations of the State of Iowa pertaining to service and the consumption of alcohol.
