What do you remember most about a wedding? The bride? Certainly, the beautiful bride. And, the food? Ah, the food.
The food from J.R.'s Grill Catering at the Western Riviera Event Center in Grand Lake, Colorado is a visual feast as well as scrumptious eating. Figs drizzled with honey glisten on golden toasts, grilled vegetables are slightly charred & aromatic, peppered, pink tinged tenderloin waits to be carved & dressed with flavorful mushroom au jus sauce. Delicious!
J.R.'s Grill Catering will not disappoint. Alyda & J.R., the owners, are as competent as they are caring. It's not just the food - and you have a lot of options to choose from; from hamburger to tenderloin, from chicken wings to chicken piccata and everything in between. It's really the two of them who knock themselves out to make your event one to remember. Alyda & J.R. are wonderful to work with. They are willing to help with every detail of a party or event, not just with the food. Grand Lake is a beautiful spot, a town fairly self contained, far from a metropolitan center, so the people they recommend as vendors must be people they trust & up to their high standards.
We couldn't have been more pleased with J.R.'s Grill Catering & the Western Riviera Event Center. At our daughter's wedding, when the bride & groom, and some of their friends went to a local bar after the wedding to continue celebrating, Alyda's son & one of Alyda's friends went to pick them up and made sure they got back to their rooms even though everything in Grand Lake is within walking distance. Professionals with a heart - you bet!
Cooks, caterers, event planners - yes, but in the end it's Alyda & J.R.'s warmth & willingness to make your event as special as it can be that shines through. That - and the food is superb.

I loved having our wedding reception at Western Riviera Lakeside Event Center. The space is absolutely beautiful. The huge patio overlooks Grand Lake. The space only holds 120 people, so be careful with your guest list. We had 85 people and the space was perfect. I think it would have felt crowded if we had anymore people. The on-site caterers were great. I was hesitant about HAVING to use their caterer, but it worked perfectly and the food was wonderful. The rental fee was also very reasonable. Overall a beautiful place that's a great value.

Great place to have any sort of event. The deck they have is amazing over looking the lake. The big windows in front let you see the lake from inside. The food was fabulous and I couldn't of asked for better staff and service.
