We did a selection of entree’s but our venue is charging us a single price for the each meal regardless of what it is (they ake the highest price selection and then add an additional price per person, since we are offering a choice). About 80% of our replies are picking the cheapest food option. I’m SO bummed out!!!! I secretly wanted everyone to pick the highest priced one (the seafood) but most people are picking the chicken. BOO!!!

Your guest are probably being polite and picking chicken over seafood. For me, if I were to dine by myself or with my Fiance, I’ll order seafood over anything. If I am dining with some else and unsure of who is paying, I’ll order chicken.

I would guess that it is because chicken is less variable. IE- good seafood is good, but bad seafood is awful, so if people aren’t familiar with your venue, they may just be picking the ‘safest’ option.
Either way, at least they are getting what they want.
