Shir-Ra Room

The Shir-Ra Room is an elegant yet versatile private room, which can accommodate larger groups of up to one hundred people, or divided to accommodate smaller parties – for any occasion.Rectangular (4’) tables can be arranged in banquet rows, U or E shaped configurations, conference style tables, or individually to seat 4 or 8 per table. We are happy to provide a projection screen for your meeting if requested.

Tommy-Suz Garden Room

With a more casual feel, the Tommy-Suz Garden Room is a hot spot for good times. This unique area (with it’s own saloon!) can accommodate up to 300 people for meetings, parties, weddings, and special occasions. The décor is a mix of old-time furnishings, antique gas pumps, signs, and other memorabilia mixed with a splash of contemporary neon. The Tommy-Suz Garden has a small stage, projection screen, and a sound system with cordless hand-held microphone. Tables can be arranged in banquet rows or individually to seat smaller groupings of 4, 6, and 8 people per table.

The Tommy-Suz Garden is not available for private events on Saturday evenings, due to our weekly Saturday Night Prime Rib Buffet, nor during the day on Sundays, due to our weekly Sunday Brunch Buffet. There is no additional fee for use of our private banquet and meeting rooms, however, meal service is required. Applicable sales tax as well as a 15% gratuity is added for all private events.
