Our group attended the Big Brothers Big Sisters Big Night Out at The Grandway. We were very impressed with the quality and presentation of the meal. The space is new and modern and the staff did an outstanding job. I would highly recommend this space for any events or functions you are looking to host. A 5-star experience.

There are so many reasons why the GrandWay team are my first call when we are brainstorming a new corporate event idea. They go above and beyond to support, from the first call to packing the last box into your trunk post-event. It’s not a cookie cutter approach, they help you build the event that *you* are envisioning. We’ve asked for it all – from custom menus & budgets, to out-of-the-box outdoor events, last minute bookings, on-the-fly set-up changes, early morning starts and late night finishes, and everything in between.
