Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is the capacity of Top Deck?

    Top Deck’s Indoor capacity is 100 and the outdoor capacity is 130 for a total of 230 persons. Available seating for inside is 40 and for outside it is 70.

  • Do you only do private events or do you do semi private events as well?

    Top Deck only hosts private events. Unfortunately, we are unable to conduct semiprivate events as it inhibits our level of customer service for both the regular customers and the event attendees. All private events will have the entire premise (inside & outside) to themselves for their scheduled time slot.

  • How do we start the process of scheduling an event?

    First, please complete the form below. Once we have received your information we will get back to you and send you the Event Menu. Once you have received the Event Menu, please choose the Beverage & Food package that best suits your needs. No event is the same and we try to organize all of the details to best of our ability which is why we handle all communication through our reservation software. Please, no phone calls.

  • Is there a standard minimum to host an event?

    This is always the toughest question we get because the answer is yes — and no. We base on our pricing on historical sales from the previous year and a day. Which means we look at our sales from the previous years during that timeframe to forecast our typical business. That being said, during weekends our typical standard minimum expenditure is around $5,000 for a two hour event and during the weekdays it is usually $4,000 for a two hour event.  These expectations do vary throughout the year because of the seasonality of tourism. 

  • Why is your minimum group size 50?

    op Deck recommends at least a 50 person minimum because of the minimum expenditure required. That is not to say we would not host an event for less people, but it is very hard to meet our minimum expenditure with an amount of guests less than 50.
