Great food from real people


 
 

We are flexible, experienced and ready for anything the north has in store. Only so much can be controlled on an event day. Vendors who are in it to win it with you can make all the difference. Producing events is about promises, and we do not break our promises. Part of our promise is that we will always tell you when there are obstacles we may not be able to overcome, and we will work with you to figure out the best solution. 

Our company creed, "Feeding the world, one event at a time," is about feeding our communities by giving back. Unique Dining's Project Donation turns your events into a fundraising opportunity for local food shelves and organizations. Find out more about how we are giving back to schools via our Project Graduation Donation page. 

Unique Dining is proudly Veteran-owned and offers military as well as non-profit rates. It's our honor to help those helping others. 

 
 
 

Our team

We promise to be real with you about how we can best serve you. Our team is filled with real people who understand how important your wedding, event, and/or company is to you. In an industry filled with folks selling spectacle, we’ve chosen to just be us, so you can just be you. 

We spend a lot of time at Unique Dining coaching our team, asking each other for feedback, and working to be better versions of ourselves personally and professionally. Being good people, focused on building a business that superbly serves its clients and employees is REALLY important to us. Every event we are lucky enough to be a part of and every new addition to our team is an opportunity to grow and be better. 

 
 
 

Our Venues

Banquet Halls (carpet and all), barns, and backyards, we do it all. Whether transporting our custom mobile cooking trailer, utilizing an on-site preparation kitchen or arriving ready-to-serve from our headquarters, we love working in a wide spectrum of traditional and non-traditional spaces. 

Our relationships with venues are fundamental to our success and service. Exclusive at Bloom Lake Barn and Courtyards of Andover. Proud to be an exclusive caterer alongside D'Amico Catering and Mintahoe at Winehaven.  Preferred Caterer of Klubhouse and Juliane James Place. Sponsor of Minnesota Blue Ox Hockey’s 2018-19 season, exclusively providing food and beverages during games. 

 

Bloom Lake Barn

Bloom Lake Barn provides that "out of the way" country charm a short 40 mile drive from the Twin Cities, nestled in the picturesque St. Croix valley. The wooden barn is enormous and contains vaulted ceilings and gorgeous chandelier and cafe lighting. The lower level of the barn is another unique space containing rustic beams and high top tables built from original milking stanchions. The courtyard includes a pavillion, bon fire pit, lawn games, and a walking trail through the woods. 

 

Courtyards of Andover

Courtyards of Andover (MN) is a event center and banquet facility ideal for weddings, expos, banquets, corporate events and the like. We are located just outside of the Twin Cities, in Andover, MN. We offer spacious rooms with built in, get-down dance floors and all the amenities you could want.

Like most banquet halls, we have unique carpet. It goes with our awesome staff, great food, and warm bartending staff. Unlike many banquet halls, you can have your wedding ceremony outdoors and head right on in to party. (Because your guests will be polite but no one wants to wait to get a drink during a celebration.) Courtyards of Andover welcomes all couples.

The "Courtyard" in Courtyards of Andover, is available for wedding services up to 300 guests as well as for non-wedding events.  After your event, let your guests relax and mingle in the Courtyards with a cocktail and hors d’oeuvres.  And OF COURSE we have fire pits. Cause Minnesota.
