Private Party Policies and Agreement for Max & Joe’s Belgian Tavern

All Party Room reservations requests for food or beverage including selections from our Catering Menu or Keg requests require 48 hours (7 days for the Smokehouse BBQ Buffet) notice before your event. Any cancellations made less than one week before the reserved date will result in the forfeit of your deposit unless the date can be booked for another event.

Rental Requirements

  1. The Crescent Moon requires a $200 deposit to reserve Max & Joe’s Belgian Tavern for a Private Party and a $500 damage/ theft deposit held in the form of a credit card number. This shall be received at the time of the booking. No date will be reserved until deposits and a signed contract have been received.
  2. A $10 per hour Room Fee Charge is required for all parties. There is a required minimum of two hours and 25 people.
  3. If required minimum sales are reached, deposit is returned. Minimums are as follows:
    • Happy Hour Receptions (Monday-Wednesday before 7pm) $200/hour
    • Happy Hour Receptions (Thursday-Saturday before 7pm) $300/hour
    • Monday-Wednesday (after 7pm) – $800 minimum

In accordance with the State Health Department and State Beverage Commission regulations do not permit us to allow food or beverage (alcoholic or otherwise) to be brought in from an outside source by the patron or attendees and must be provided by The Crescent Moon.  Commercially baked cakes/desserts are permitted to be brought in.
  2. A second bartender/wait person or food runner may be requested at an additional charge of $7.50 per hour. A second bar tender/wait person may be required for large groups and a food runner may be required if ordering off of the menu as opposed to ordering from the catering menu.

Nothing will be charged to the card unless there are damages.
