History of Navy Pier Catering


An environment as unique and emotionally evocative as Navy Pier requires nothing less than an equally stellar dining experience.


Two iconic restaurateurs from the Chicago area have joined together to ensure the food at your event is not only worthy of its surroundings, but actually enhances them.


Phil Stefani Signature Restaurants and Buona Restaurants partnered in 2004 to offer best-in-class dining to Navy Pier patrons. With over 60 years' experience between them, they bring together the perfect combination of excellent cuisine and attention to detail. With the ability to create most any food style and dishes from many nationalities, they can provide everything from simple meals to culinary masterpieces. But no matter your tastes, the consistent key ingredient is a memorable experience.


With offices and prep and service kitchens on-site, the partners ensure your food is not only exceptional, but it's prepared fresh and on time. Plus a manager is always available for consultation or assistance.

Special Events


Navy Pier is the most unique venue in Chicago for hosting your special event. Throughout the year, Navy Pier is the perfect backdrop for a variety of seasonal events.

We specialize in helping your group to take advantage of some of the best events Chicago has to offer, and making them your own within our private space.

Navy Pier Catering provides a variety of menus, whether you plan your own unique event or tie into seasonal events being held at Navy Pier.



Wedding Ceremonies & Receptions


Navy Pier is the perfect venue for any wedding. Our tented rooftop terrace lets you dine under the stars with a spectacular view of the Chicago lakefront and skyline. On a lovely summer Saturday, your guests will enjoy a wonderful dinner, possibly topped off with your own private view of Navy Pier's fireworks (subject to scheduling).


For larger weddings, our Grand Ballroom is a one-of-a-kind location. An ornate 80-foot domed ceiling tops panoramic views of Lake Michigan. Navy Pier Catering offers a variety of all-inclusive wedding packages to suit your needs. We are also experienced in ethnic weddings, from Indian to Kosher and everything in between. Our Chef will provide a private tasting to select your menu, and our professional on-site catering experts will assist you every step of the way in creating an unforgettable experience, from the first kiss to the last dance.


Food and beverage minimums start at $5000.
