Evening - Opal Sands Resort (2024)

CREATIVELY CURATED MENUS | EVENING | RECEPTION SELECTIONS

Your day is winding down — it’s time to mingle and linger over a delectable dinner. Set the tone for the evening with light hors d’oeuvres your guests will enjoy digging into. A carving station might be an interactive alternative to a sit-down main course. Alternatively, a buffet style affair offers your group more choices — go beyond the classics with a steakhouse dinner, pub fare, or a luau or traditional lobster bake. Whatever your selection, everyone will leave feeling satisfied and satiated.
