We are in the business of designing menus to meet your needs, flavors, and budget. We will do everything in our power to customize a menu you can be proud to serve. Because Lake Effect Kitchen is serious about food safety and our mission of putting people first, we will need to discuss any special requests before making a commitment. We want to do our best for you. Let’s set up a time to discuss your vision and create a memorable event!
