MenuDine-in Menus are a list of food or drink items available for purchase, or a list of food or drink items that will be served. A menu may be à la carte – which presents a list of options from which customers choose – or table d’hôte, in which case a pre-established sequence of courses is offered. (appetizers, entrees, desserts). Menus may be printed on card stock or text-weight paper and can also be laminated.

Menus can be placed on the tables at very formal or special events, for example, weddings, anniversaries, birthday celebrations, baby showers or retirement parties.

Carryout Menus or Take Out Menus are generally printed on text-weight paper and are folded in half or trifold. They can feature pictures of food and the restaurant, as well as hours of operation.
