Banquet menus are typically small and consist of only a few pages. This is due to the limited dinner selections found at most banquets.



Banquet menus often feature fine dining, including expensive dishes such as filet mignon, lobster and stuffed chicken. They typically do not list prices, as guests usually buy banquet tickets that include the cost of dinner.
