When choosing the perfect menu for your wedding, keep the Holiday Inn Sioux Falls- City Centre in mind for both the venue and catering service.
Weddings at the Holiday Inn include a catered dinner, a ballroom rental, decorations, a wedding planner, round or rectangular tables, dishware, head table staging, cake service, a dance floor, and more.
The guests of honor can have a hands-off day with a full-service wait staff, bussers, and setup team, along with a staffed, full-service bar offering beer, wine, and hard liquor.
“We offer a lot of variety from our catering menu to our restaurant menu,” said April McCormick, assistant director of sales and sales manager. “Our chefs take a lot of pride in what they do, and we’re always looking for unique ideas.”
Options range from Grille 100 items to larger catering dishes, which are geared more towards buffet-style food.
“We take it a step up as a hotel,” said McCormick. “We have a full menu selection: from shrimp to steak to prime rib to multiple kinds of chicken.”
One of the client-favorite plated entrées is the Skewered Bacon Wrapped Pork Chops, which comes with three skewers rubbed in sweet BBQ and baked with caramelized brown sugar.
“With our banquet menu, we’re well known for our Flank Steak,” said McCormick. “Everybody loves it. It’s a No. 1 top seller.”
The Flank Steak is a traditional buffet option marinated, sliced, and served with a choice of either rich merlot demi sauce topped with button mushrooms or Jack Daniel’s roasted garlic whiskey sauce.

Top Piece of Advice from McCormick
Always be present in your day. Let the stress of planning a large once-in-a-lifetime event fall on us.
“We can offer a full Italian buffet, [Pasta Napoli,] which is something very classic with a little for everyone, including chicken and prime rib, or you can try something exciting like our Island Hawaiian Style buffet, which includes cinnamon-roasted pineapple,” said McCormick.
The catering options also include a selection of petite desserts, which are fit for guests to grab on their way to the dance floor.
“Toasted Marshmallow S’mores are like a graham cracker shell, chocolate fudge, topped with a marshmallow cream, and toasted with a torch,” said executive chef Jeff DeJong.
Other bite-sized snacks to satisfy a guest’s sweet tooth include Key Lime Cheesecake, Oreo Cheesecake, and Peanut Butter Brownie Bites.
With these options and more, DeJong says that the culinary team is curating a menu that isn’t easily found in the area, while offering “trendy” options.
“I like doing things you wouldn’t think of and bringing that to the menu: stuff that you don’t see. I look at menus at other restaurants to know what not to serve,” said Censky.
