About Crystal Tea Room- Finley Catering

Finley Catering Company, established in 1976, has soared to even greater heights than Steve Finley could have ever imagined. As a young boy, Steve took all his cooking skills from his mother, pursued a culinary degree and worked hard to realize the great American success story.

Steve’s business has grown considerably over the years. Teaming with his brother, Tom Finley, they have created a dynamic duo in the area’s catering industry. Both spouses have been involved and now the next generation, Steve’s daughter, Michelle, is coming aboard making it a true family business. Steve’s values have stayed the same. He continues to strive for perfection in all aspects of his profession. Steve credits his success to hard work, dedication to detail, exquisite cuisine and top-notch employees.

Finley’s accomplishments, small or large, have earned him a reputation that has resulted in bookings at the Ballroom At the Ben and the Crystal Tea Room, exceeding all expectations. For example in 1997, Steve had the honor of hosting the Presidential Summit Luncheon at The Ballroom At the Ben. Then President and Mrs. Clinton, Vice President and Mrs. Gore, the Honorable George and Mrs. Bush, the Honorable Gerald Ford, Colin Powell, along with Governors from across the country and numerous celebrities, attended this prestigious event. Furthermore, The Crystal Tea Room has hosted numerous noteworthy events, such as The Tug McGraw Foundation, which was hosted by Tim McGraw and Faith Hill. In addition, The Crystal Tea Room hosts events for numerous foundations, The Cole Hamel’s Foundation, Philadelphia professional athletes, and soirées for celebrities.

I cannot even express how happy we were with Crystal Tea Room and Finely Catering. Above and beyond all our expectations - and our daughter has done nothing but say how happy she was and how much she enjoyed it! Our guests have commented "Best Wedding Ever" - and it truly was. Thank you so much!

I can’t put into words how wonderful the Crystal Tea Room was from the day we toured the venue through the day of our wedding! Absolutely amazing! Emily was the BEST to work with while planning and Miguel could not have been more amazing the week of/day of. Our guests could not say enough positive things about the service, food and the overall look/feel of the venue. I would chose the Crystal Tea Room 100x out of 100!
