The restaurant catered my daughter's wedding reception several weeks ago. They were prompt, efficient, polite and food was awesome. About 100 attended wedding and they prepared most on site. The venue was outside on the farm. Highly recommend them.

For lack of knowing where to begin exploring the culinary side of Greenville we picked this place. Not a bad choice. I thought the bartender was a little arrogant and more interested in the female servers than the customers. The food was upscale Southern home...More

It looked to me like it was big enough to accomodate 200 people. I recommand you call them and ask they provide that kind of service. Good luck!
