What is a Banquet Check?

A Banquet Check is a standard document provided by the hotel’s banquet department or the caterer.

This document breaks down the banquet charges for an event or function.

The charges typically include —

  • Food
  • Beverages
  • Labor Fees
  • Service Charges
  • If the banquet check comes from a hotel, it could include rental and audiovisual charges.
  • And, of course taxes

When you are presented with a banquet check, make sure that you check it thoroughly before you sign it.

This is basically your preliminary invoice for your food and beverage charges.
