Galveston Catering & Banquets at Moody Gardens Hotel

For Your Gulf Events

If your'e planning on hosting an event at Moody Gardens Hotel, please read below for our catering and banquets policies, as well as to view menus and additional amenities.

Catering & Banquets

Our professional sales and Galveston catering staff will handle every detail of your event, whether it is an intimate dinner or a convention of 2,000 people.

Galveston Catering Menu Selections

You can chose from any of our diverse catering menus, or you can also personalize a menu to suit your tastes. Buffets have a 50-guest minimum. All food and beverage must be provided by Moody Gardens Hotel. Likewise, all catered food and beverage must be consumed on the premises.

Catering Information


The Catering Department must be informed of your guaranteed number of guests 72 hours prior to the event. After this time, your guarantee may be raised, but not reduced. If a final guarantee is not provided within the 72-hour deadline, the estimated number of guests will represent the guarantee and will be charged accordingly. Our advance preparation is 5% over the guarantee.


A service charge of 20% will be added to all food prices and all hosted beverage prices. All charges, including the service charge, are subject to Texas State sales tax. Tax exempt groups must provide a certificate in order to waive the State sales tax. All prices are subject to change without prior notification; however, we will honor those prices guaranteed with a signed contract.

Decorations & Linens

For personalized decorations, flowers, photography, music and entertainment, please ask your catering representative for a suggested vendor list. Clients' decorations, displays, signage, etc., and their assembly are allowed with the approval of the Catering Director, but must be removed immediately after the event. The hotel is not responsible for any damage to or loss of items provided by the client.

Moody Gardens offers white linen with each event. For a nominal charge, you can request special linen colors. For a crowning centerpiece, please ask about our chef's elegant ice carvings.
