About The Grand Banquet Hall

The Grand Banquet Hall is a historic wedding venue in Stillwater, Minnesota. Originally a lumberyard during Stillwater’s lumber boom, it was converted into a beautiful ballroom in 1994. It features beautiful stained glass throughout lighting, windows, and bar area, as well as exposed lumber beams that house their trademark antique stained glass dome.

Facilities and Capacity
Up to 300 guests can be comfortably accommodated within The Grand Banquet Hall, which has a generous dance floor and antiqued bar. In addition to wedding ceremonies and receptions, The Grand Banquet Hall can also host bridal showers, engagement parties, elopements, and rehearsal dinners, and is a wheelchair accessible space.

Services Offered
While The Grand Banquet Hall is the exclusive caterer for all events, couples are allowed to peruse the venue’s preferred vendor list to select florists, officiants, photographers, bakeries, and other wedding necessities. The venue can also provide an inventory of event rentals, including:

  • Audio equipment
  • Barware
  • Chairs
  • China
  • Dance floor
  • Flatware
  • Linens
  • Tables

Cuisine
Chef Chris is the contact for all special event needs in the catering department. Couples are welcome to choose offered menu items, or work with Chef Chris to compile their own custom menu. Tastings can also be accommodated. The serving styles available include buffet or plated, with the option for hors d’oeuvres at a cocktail reception, as well as dessert choices. Couples are welcome to provide their own cake from their favorite bakery. Professional bartenders can work a cash, limited, or open bar serving house beer, wine, or liquor, as well as a champagne toast.

Location
Located only minutes from the Twin Cities and the Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport, the river town is home to a flood of history, making the venue a wonderful spot for a weekend wedding. Over 75 boutique shops are situated along the historic Main Street district, and the St. Croix River is a beautiful place to embark on a dinner cruise or charter a boat. Overnight accommodations can also be arranged through The Grand’s partner business, the historic Lowell Inn.

    Amazing -top to bottom!

    Chris and his team did an amazing job with our reception. From initial contact to our big day they were extremely responsive and were willing to help with some of the details of our vision including setting up chargers and napkins. They were super helpful throughout the night, even coming up to my wife and I several times specifically asking if we needed anything to extra to eat or drink. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a cozier place and a very attentive staff! Also, this place was gorgeous - the stained glass and wonderful woodwork meant we didn’t have to do much in terms of decorating.
