Cornish hens are awesome.  AWESOME.   Give them the option, and if no one orders it, that’s fine — it won’t change the cost.  What were the steak dishes?

I do like cornish game hens, however, if steak was an option…I would choose steak. I think having the option would be fine though.

I wouldn’t order cornish game hen – is there a fish option?  I’d choose steak first, but I’d do fish before hen – bones gross me out!

I like cornish game hen a lot but it depends on the way it is served. If I’m at a fancy wedding, I want it super easy to slice and eat. I do not want to deal with a slippery, bony hen in my nice outfit.

Between the hen and the steak, we would probably order one of each. But if it’s chicken and steak, we would probably order two steaks. I generally don’t order chicken at weddings.

@TacoToosday:  I love cornish game hens. If the options were that or skirt steak, I would order the hen. If it was cornish game hen or tenderloin, I would have a tougher decision since I really like both. The game hen is more special occasiony though.

I like cornish hen but I usually go with a steak option.

Um… cornish game hen IS chicken, just very young (< 5 weeks). It’s not actually game.

I would definitely order the hen.

Your concerned about this because 1) you’re spending a lot of money and want to spend it wisely, 2) you care about your guests having a good experience.

Don’t beat yourself up for caring!  

For the decision: consider how sophisticated the palates of your guests are.  If they aren’t at all adventurous or aren’t big meat eaters serve the chicken.  If they tend to do a little more fine dining, serve the hen.  Anyway, your giving them a choice and they can always choose the steak (which will be a popular option regardless, I’m sure).
