The Lafayette Grande Banquet Facility is located in Downtown Pontiac, Michigan in a historical landmark. Built in 1923 as the Masonic Temple Lodge No. 21, Traveling Chef Catering bought this neglected building from the City of Pontiac in 1997. The intricate craftsmanship of fine details has been restored to the original grandeur. Truly, making the Lafayette Grande Banquet Facility a unique experience and unlike any other venue! Certainly a hidden gem in Oakland County, Michigan!

We invite you to tour our beautiful building! We have multiple halls to accommodate your needs. Every ballroom is unique and charismatic. The Lafayette Room will accommodate up to 200 guests. The elegant Grande Ballroom will accommodate up to 500 guests. The Crystal Ballroom will not only accommodate 350 guests, but will also take you back to days of the "Roaring Twenties!" With a "Speak Easy" atmosphere our Martini Lounge will accommodate parties of 50 or more. The newest addition to the Lafayette Grande is the Wine Cellar, accommodates 100 or more guests.

Lafayette Grande's Traveling Chef Catering provided dinner service for our wedding at The Crofoot Ballroom. The team from Traveling Chef as great and the food was amazing. They also provided linens and chair covers for us and everything went very smoothly. Our guests are still commenting on how great the food was. We got quotes from many other caterers that were double or triple the price we got from Traveling Chef. We attending a menu tasting and knew that their food was just what we wanted.

Great Place! We had our reception here and everything was great. Food was amazing, staff was very friendly and helpful, the building is very beautiful and great for pictures. During the wedding planning I would send emails with questions and always got a response quickly. We did buffet style and it worked out great, the price is very affordable and their website lists everything upfront. Overall had a great experience!

This place is wonderful! They have such different rooms layouts to choose from and the old charm of it makes any event seem magical! I would give them more than 5 stars if I could just based on their flexibility and responsiveness! Every time I thoguht of somethin gnew or needed to change a detail, they all responded immediately! So much help finding outside vendors for lighting, chairs, valet, etc. Our reception was one fabulous party and I have to thank the whole team there for it!!!

The Lafayette Grande was absolutely incredible. Working with Ryan was so seamless and he made everything super easy, also putting up with my myriad questions. He allowed my cousin ( a beer distributor) to bring in our own beer at no extra cost and also allowed us to come set up our decor the day before.

The fourth floor crystal ballroom had our guests talking all night - it was a perfect, vintage setting. The food was also impeccable. We had carved roast beef, chicken florentine, special mashed potatoes, glazed belgian carrots and caesar salald - all of which were great. Instead of doing a cake, we did the ice cream sundae bar which was a full banana split bar which everyone really loved.

I would recommend them again and again - they're friendly, family run, and just awesome all around. Go with Lafayette!

From the moment we stepped through the doors to tour The Lafayette Grande we knew this place would be our reception venue We met with Greg that day and were impressed with his professionalism and friendliness. Everyone we spoke with or met with while planning our reception was amazingly nice. Greg's brother Ryan is in charge of catering - you can tell that he takes pride in the food they prepare and serve for each event at The Lafayette Grande. The venue is beautiful and old and so unique, all of our guests were blown away! They are still talking about it! The food was fantastic, but even better was the level of courtesy provided by all the servers, the bartenders, the security, and all the Lafayette Grande staff! That night several of the older guests commented on how helpful the parking lot attendants and doorman were when they arrived. The doorman even helped my grandfather find a private place to change out of his tux so that my father could return it for him because my grandparents had to leave early the next morning to go home. Book your reception at The Lafayette Grande and you will not be disappointed!! The food is amazing, the venue is unique and beautiful, and the staff is hands down the best staff I've ever dealt with at a wedding reception!
