The Black Pig is happy to offer two private dining rooms available for brunch, lunch, and dinner events. We are able to provide a variety of menu options including appetizers, coursed meals, and desserts— flexible and always seasonal, with the ability to accommodate most dietary restrictions.

In order to best serve our private diners alongside our normal reservations, all parties of 15+ guests are required to have a limited menu and are presented with one check, able to be split up to 5 ways. Parties exceeding the capacity numbers listed for our private dining rooms can be accommodated in the form of a restaurant buyout with the appropriate advance notice.

To find out more information and start planning your party, click the button below to fill out our private dining inquiry form. We will respond to your request as soon as possible.

Please note that the completion of this form is in no way a binding contract and does not guarantee a reservation.

Upstairs Private Dining Room

Capacity: 40 Guests
Pictured: Images 1-4 (Click to Enlarge)

Located on our second floor, the upstairs dining room allows for privacy that is perfect for cocktail parties, rehearsal dinners, and other intimate special occasions. This room is typically available on both weekdays and weekends.

Downstairs Private Dining Room

Capacity: 30 Guests
Pictured: Images 5-7 (Click to Enlarge)

This room is perfect for smaller, weekday events such as meetings or conferences that require the accommodations of a private space. This room is typically not available on weekends due to the volume of reservations on these days.
