Private Room


Our Private Room is located on the mezzanine level and seats up to 20 guests. This room is ideal for birthdays, friends and family, and casual business needs.

All parties must guarantee the number of guests at least 72 hours before the function. For all groups of 100 or more, a guaranteed number within 80% of the final count is required one week prior to the event. The restaurant will accept no responsibility for serving more than 10% extra, but will make every effort to accommodate. The charge will be based on the guarantee or by the actual attendance, whichever is larger.

Your private function will be assessed a 20% gratuity to food and alcohol beverages plus a 9% sales tax. Parties with 20 guests or less may order from the menu. We also provide the option of a limited menu for events with up to 30 guests.

A credit card is required to secure a date. A client may cancel or reschedule an event up to 72 hours beforehand. If proper notice is not given within the required time frame, the room fee will be charged to the credit card and is non-refundable.

Bar set up can include a Cash Bar (each guest pays for their own beverage), Open Bar (all beverages are included on a final bill) or a combination of the two. The bar can be fully stocked to include domestic and imported beers, wine and liquor. The bar can also be stocked as a 'Limited Bar' with your selections of beer, wine, and/or liquor.

The main floor of Chuck’s Fish is available for late night parties (11:00 pm to 1:45 am) and can accommodate up to 400 guests. Fees for after-hours include a room charge and an administration/booking fee as well as bartenders. We also require a $1000 security deposit which is held for 48 hours after the event to assess for damages. If no damages are found, the deposit check is shredded or returned to the client. By law, last call is 1:30 am and guests are asked to clear the building by 1:45 a.m.
