  • What is the relationship between The Heritage Room and CJ’s Restaurant and Catering?
    • The Heritage Room is a collaboration between the property owner and CJ’s Restaurant, which is how we are able to keep room rental rates lower than other venues.  Restroom facilities, utilities, event setup, and event cleanup are provided by CJ’s, which allows us to keep our rates so low. 
    • The upside to CJ’s is that they get to provide you with some of the best southern cooking you’ll find anywhere.  And because they don’t have to factor in the costs of renting this additional space in their budget, they can keep their food costs lower. 
    • The winner in this collaboration is you.  Elegant venue, delicious food, lowest event price you’ll find anywhere.
  • Are linens provided?
    • Linens are NOT provided. We supply the tables and chairs but linens are not included. Our caterer has a contact where he rents his linens from and can arrange that if you'd like.
  • Can I use another caterer or bring our own food?
    • Because of the collaboration described above, we aren’t able to accommodate other caterers.
  • Can I bring a cake or special food item to go along with our catered meal?
    • Yes.
  • What about bar service?  Can I bring our own alcohol?
    • CJ’s has a full bar and licensed bar tenders.  Due to liability concerns, we cannot allow our customers to bring alcohol into The Heritage Room.
  • Can I bring live music?
    • Yes, however due to the proximity to CJ’s Restaurant and the comfort of their guests, we ask that your choice of music be family-friendly (no hard rock, rap, explicit lyrics) and that volume level be such that restaurant guests aren’t impacted.  We ask that you work with CJ’s management to find a mutually acceptable volume level.  Final approval of music types and volume is at the discretion of CJ’s management.  Please discuss your plans with them prior to the event.

    • No.  Payments must be made via the website or through the mail.  Otherwise the resulting confusion could jeopardize your event.

  • Where should our guests park for our event?
    • Watch for signage indicating event parking, and please ask your guests to park in just those areas.  For small events, signs may not be used and you can feel free to park anywhere.
  • Am I allowed to bring in my own decorations?
    • You may bring in table decorations but please do not bring anything to put on the walls or alter the decor that is already on the walls. We also have hooks installed in the ceiling grid to allow you to hang streamers or light party decor.
  • What if I need to cancel my event.
    • If you cancel at least 30 days prior to your event, we will refund half of your fee.  Subject to availability, we will allow a complementary rescheduling of an event one time with no penalty.  A rescheduled event will not be eligible for any refunds.
  • Can I reserve the room for an event that doesn’t involve catering or food?
    • Our rates are discounted due to the catering sales.  That being the case, we cannot afford to accommodate customers that do not use CJ's catering.
