The Banquet Chef will make every effort to duplicate your menu for the overage; however substitutions may be warranted and/or necessary.

  • As a state licensee, we are responsible for the administration of the sales and service of alcoholic beverages in accordance with the South Carolina Alcoholic Beverage Commission’s rules and regulations. By order of state laws, guests of the Bay Watch Resort & Conference Center are prohibited from bringing in any alcoholic beverages to the Licensed Premises. It is our policy, therefore, that the Hotel, without exception, will supply all liquor, beer, and wine. In addition, the consumption of alcoholic beverages by anyone less than 21 years of age is strictly forbidden. Any violation of this policy will result in an immediate shutdown and the possibility of legal action. All prices subject to 23% service charge and applicable state and local sales tax.

A room rental fee will be charged where applicable. Decorations and displays may not be attached to walls, ceilings, floors, etc. by any means without authorization from the Service Coordinator. Damage charges will be assessed to anyone improperly attaching items or decorations in meeting rooms. Absolutely no glitter or confetti is permitted in the banquet space.
