weddings + fine catering

We stick to what we're good at at Unique Dining. That way we know we can deliver the great food and service we guarantee. This still leaves you with tons of options. We are happy to serve up meal on plates you tirelessly collected during your engagement, roast up a hog outside a barn, or set up one of our awesome buffets. 

Have a look at what your options are below in our MENU and then CONTACT US to talk more about making awesome happen together. We specialize in: indoor, outdoor, pig roast, barn, and non-traditional space weddings. 

 
 
 
 

Pig Roasts

We offer full on-site hog roasting of a whole roasted pig over a charcoal fired roaster. It's our biggest seller and best event attraction.  If you're not into a pig roast, but want pulled pork, we can cook it off-site and bring the sliced pig onsite to serve your guests. We are a licensed roaster in Minnesota. You are getting a quality roast with Unique Dining. With each pig roast we offer a full assortment of side dishes.  

If you're interested in finding out more about our Pig Roasting, check out our MENU below for pricing and CONTACT US or call us at (763) 754-6521.

Unique Dining Classics

“WOW” your guests with food from our roots!

Classics pricing includes on-site cooking fee.

Classic Pig Roast with Three Sides

If you are about the ambiance, this option is for you!  We come out with our truck and trailer 8-10 hours before serving time and roast the pig entirely on-site from start to finish, right over charcoal! Please note: Pigs are quite large and feed a lot of people. It's why they are an awesome event option! Per person pricing here is for 100+ guests. We love providing pig roasts for smaller parties and are happy to do so.

Customization

We love doing custom menus when it’s the right fit. We only take on a few custom-menu clients a season and charge a bit more to change up our standard menu. The overall increase in price depends on the actual menu decided upon, but on average it’s at least $10 or more per person. But it’s worth it!

To make sure all Unique Dining’s fine catering menus are given the designated attention and care they deserve, a $25 charge for custom menu-planning is billed to the client. 

Tasting

We offer a few group tastings each year. For events that are already reserved, two guests may attend the tasting at no charge. Any additional guests are $25 each. If you are not reserved with us yet, a tasting fee of $25 per person will apply.
