Pre-Show Dining

Pre-Show Dinner and Cocktails Provided On-site by Mattison's at the Van Wezel

Mattison’s offers pre-show dining as the official caterer at the waterfront Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall in Sarasota, Florida. Mattison’s is committed to the health and safety of our guests. Our staff has been certified and received the Florida Restaurant & Lodging Association Seal of Commitment for Covid Safety Training, following all guidelines and safety measures provided. Staff will be wearing appropriate PPE, sanitizing between guest visits and our tables will be properly distanced. Menus will be offered as a buffet style or seated meal based upon the current recommended safety protocols.

Menu varies as fresh, seasonal, and local products become available. Sample extravagant buffet dinner may include: gourmet cheese display, fresh salad bars with multiple toppings and dressing choices, prime rib carving station, fresh seafood entrée, seasonal vegetables and grains, pasta creations, various house made desserts and much more. As current restrictions may require a plated meal, we will be offering a wonderful three-course dinner starting with a sharing plate, choice of salad, entrée and miniature dessert bites. Reservations can be made no later than 12p.m., 2 days prior to the performance. Mattison's uses a fully cash-less system at the bars for payment and gratuities. No cash will be accepted. For more information, call (941) 263-6799.
