    Amazing Food

    We absolutely loved having our wedding ceremony and reception at Great Lakes Culinary Center. Taylor was great every step of the way and helped us reimagine our wedding after postponing, decreasing the guest list, and moving outside due to COVID. The main reason we chose this venue was the food and it met every expectation!

    Amazing food and staff!

    Getting married at The Great Lakes Culinary Center was one of the best decisions we made. Having 6 months to plan, Erika and Taylor were extremely helpful the entire way. From lots of back and forth customizing our menu, to answering hundreds of questions big and small, and making sure day off that everything went just the way we envisioned. As for the food, this was one of our biggest priorities for our big day and boy did they ever deliver! We received so many compliments in regards to our customized charcuterie board, passed apps, ravioli station and carving station. If you're looking for an amazing outdoor ceremony, incredible yet cozy ambiance for the reception, and great food/people, this is it!

    Great Caterer!

    I hired GLC for my wedding and they did a great job! I received several comments from the guests about how good the food was and the bartenders were wonderful that evening, too. GLC was very thorough in the planning and preparation, as well. I’d highly recommend them!
