I would pick the steak to eat, and as the meal to serve. If I was only going to offer one thing to a crowd drinking alcohol, it would NOT be fish.

If… If I had to pick for guests, I’d say beef. Less chance of allergies, maybe…

I would pick the steak. While I love sea bass, many people don’t like fish and some can’t even tolerate the smell of it.

I love sea bass and would prefer it over steak but i think most people would prefer the steak. If I had to choose for my own wedding I’d go with steak.

KonaSensation:  I would choose neither, but I’m a vegetarian. However, if you had to choose one or the other, the beef seems like a safer choice to please a crowd.

The beef would make me ill so fish would be the default. Do you have people with dietary issues? If so then it would polite to splurge on two options so they can eat. I would be pretty miffed going to a wedding and not being able to eat what is offered,  and would most likely leave to eat.

I would choose beef of those two. However I have many friends who don’t eat red meat or fish or are vegetarian. I would stronly consider offering an alternative.

As a servsafe certified cook, I would say beef is the better choice as with fish there is a higher possiblity of food poisoning or allergy. In my own personal opinion though, I would still say beef. Most people will eat beef without complaint, but not everyone likes fish.

Beef. I’m with PPs in that I know a lot of people that don’t eat beef or fish. Was there not a good chicken option?

I’d go with beef and hire the videographer

Is there a chicken option? Fish and red meat tend to be polarizing, but almost everyone will eat chicken.

I hate fish, so I would be annoyed (and hungry) if that was my only option at a wedding. Agree with PP who asked about a chicken option.  I would like  beef but a lot of people don’t eat red meat. Only fish or only beef aren’t really good choices.
