If you miss the deadline, you may order off the limited selection day-of-event menu inside your suite.

SuiteHop Recommended Capital One Arena Catering Menu

Ordering catering is a complex and confusing process. To help extend your catering budget, we recommend selecting family-style items (such as pulled pork) instead of individual portions (steak). Most catering menus, including those at Capital One Arena, require a minimum order of 6 portions. You do not have to order a portion for every guest you are expecting to attend.

Desserts often come with multiple items per person, and a full 20 person order may mean you have three times as many cookies as you need. There will always be options available for reorder when you are in the suite, so do not worry about not having enough food!

Getting the Most of Your Suite Catering at Capital One Arena

Pro Tips from Suite Experts

Don’t be left in the dark about the complexities of a catering order and end up with a surprisingly expensive bill at the end of the evening. We’ve compiled a list of our top Suite Catering Tips for Capital One Arena.

  • Be aware of the service fees. An additional 22% + applicable sales tax is added to your final bill to cover service costs from Aramark.
  • Gratuity is not included. Service fees are not considered gratuity for your suite attendant.
  • If you miss the catering deadline, you can order from the day-of-event menu. These menus are often a smaller selection.
  • Catering portion sizes may be misleading. As a rule, you may not wish to order a serving for every guest in your suite. Family-style items, like pizza or pulled pork, can often serve a larger group. We recommend ordering for a max of 12 guests (when planning a 20 person suite) and determining if additional items are needed during your event.
  • Don’t miss the ordering cut-off for additional alcohol. Your suite attendant may notify you of last call.
  • Hockey games stop serving at the end of the 2nd period.
  • Basketball games stop serving at the end of the 3rd quarter.
  • Concerts stop serving 1 (one) hour before the end of the show.

Important note: There is no refund for food or drinks that are not consumed. We recommend ordering conservatively and paying attention to what your guests are consuming before reordering.
