Getting the Most of Your Suite Catering at Madison Square Garden

Pro Tips from the 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 put together a list of our top Suite Catering Tips for Madison Square Garden.

  • Be aware of the service fees. An additional 18% + sales tax is added onto your final bill to cover service costs from MSG.
  • Gratuity is not included in the service fee. Tipping your suite attendant is up to your discretion and you will be able to add this when the final bill comes.
  • If you miss the catering deadline (2 days prior to the event) you will be able to order from the Day of Event Menu. These menus often offer less options
  • 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 pizzas 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 second intermission.
    • Basketball games stop serving at the end of the third intermission.
    • Concerts typically cut off 1-1.5 hours before the end of the show.

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