DOES THE SCREEN SIZE MATTER FOR A DIGITAL MENU BOARD DISPLAY? YOU BET!
The old saying the bigger the better is not necessarily true when it comes to screen size for a restaurant digital menu board.
Don’t get me wrong, there is a place when the larger the screen size the better, is the most wise decision for a digital menu screen. However, for many, there needs to be an appropriate fit between your restaurant and the digital menu screen. Most digital menu board screens will come in the popular size ranges of 32 inches to 55 inches, however they can go as small as 10” to 13” and as large as 60” to 80”. Here at
Menu Board Depot we have carefully hand selected a variety of screen sizes for use as a digital menu display in your restaurant. To view the complete hand selected displays we offer, CLICK HERE.
Details that need to be considered in choosing the right screen size for a digital menu display are:
- The size of your restaurant
- Where in your restaurant you wish to have the digital menu display
- How many displays you wish to have
- Separate locations in the restaurant
- Combined to create a large video wall display
- Used on a stand or cart as a combo
- Even where the display will be, inside or outside
At Menu Board Depot we can even help you with determining the correct screen size needed for your restaurant with Consulting & Design.
Clearly the size of your restaurant will be the first determining factor when selecting the perfect screen size for the digital menu display. Lets be honest, a over-sized digital menu display in a real small restaurant just does not make much sense. The convenience of a large restaurant allows for the larger screens, but no matter the size of your restaurant you will need to consider the other factors before choosing the proper digital menu display.
Where you want to install the digital menu screen will probably be the most important factor in determining the screen size for your digital menu display. Some areas may have odd shapes to the walls that will restrict the size of the digital menu display. However, with a proper display mount you will have a larger selection of sizes to choose from. A smaller digital menu display is needed for table tops and counters where larger digital menu displays work more effectively on walls, windows and from the ceiling.
Digital menu displays that are 10 inches to 13 inches are great for table tops. With digital menu displays at the tables, customers can be encouraged to place orders for appetizers, beverages and main menu orders themselves. With the proper apps included on the table top digital menu display customers can be engaged by playing games, sharing their dining experiences on social media and even checking their emails. By engaging the customers with the table top digital menu displays you lower the perceived wait time for their orders and keep them satisfied. Menu Board Depot has small digital displays perfect for table tops, just CLICK HERE.
Depending on the size of the restaurants counters, a digital menu display from 13 inches to 32 inches work great. Highlight specific menu items directly from the counter to increase sales and better manage the inventory. If you serve patrons at the counters you could even use the 10 inch tablet sized digital menu display like the table-top version and encourage self ordering and customer engagement.
Restaurant digital menu boards displayed on the walls, dropped from the ceiling or displayed in the windows can range anywhere from 22 inches to a massive 80 inch screen size. This decision allows for more freedom of choice in screen size and leads to the considerations of what type of digital display you will need. I will cover the different types of displays to consider in the next blog.

Whether on the wall, from the ceiling or in the window, the choice of screen size will also link to the next decision that needs to be considered. That is, how many displays do you need?
So now that you have decided where you want the display to go, the next question is how many digital menu displays do you need? If you own a small restaurant with a small unique menu then a smaller digital menu display at the POS is probably sufficient. Menu Board Depot has personally chosen several small to medium sized menu screens for you to choose from, just CLICK HERE.
Maybe you have a medium to large restaurant with a larger menu. Then 2 – 3 medium to large displays put together on the wall where customers place their order is more appropriate to highlight the entire menu. One could even add a smaller digital menu display on a stand at the entrance of the line to persuade customer ordering before reaching the POS. This increases the speed of movement of the line and lowers the perceived wait time to the customers keeping them satisfied. Menu Board Depot hand selected several medium to large size digital menu screens to choose from. We even offer digital menu screen and stand combos for purchasing, just CLICK HERE.
What if you have a restaurant or sports bar with a large open dining area and you want to promote your menu specials to everyone. Then 3 – 5 large digital displays hanging from the ceiling broadcasting at every viewable angle would be more productive and profitable to you. A large video wall cart also works well in these restaurant situations. Four medium to large digital menu screens can be combined on the video wall cart creating a moveable digital menu board or video wall to increase restaurant ambience.

Perhaps the restaurant is a large formal dining experience. You want to create a one-of-a-kind dining experience by providing the perfect ambience, then a large video wall display is what’s needed. With the proper screen size, number of screens and video wall mounts The restaurants brand and image will be forever memorable. Menu Board Depot hand selected video wall menu screens and the proper wall mounts for you to purchase.
One last thing to consider when determining the screen size for your digital menu screen is whether you want the digital menu board to be inside or outside. That’s right, an outside digital menu screen. Completely weather-proof outdoor digital menu boards are perfect for drive-thrus or on sidewalks that bring patrons past your restaurant. These screen sizes come in 42 inch, 47 inch and 55 inch models. The decision on screen size then relies on the size of the menu you wish to display. At Menu Board Depot we offer all three of these screen sizes in regular and sunlight readable models. we even offer outdoor screen covers to further help protect the digital menu screens when they are not in use.
