Our Banquet Hall During a Wedding Reception

Welcome to Maravela’s…where something delicious is ALWAYS cooking!

Come see our newly remodeled lobby, front hallway and completely renovated restrooms, featuring all new contact-free amenities.

At Maravela’s, we’ve been pleasing customers for almost 40 years. Even through a pandemic we won’t stop cooking for you!

Thank you for visiting Maravela’s website! We are a family owned, full service catering company and banquet facility, with hall space seating up to 400 people. Since 1982, we have served thousands of parties, weddings, showers, reunions, fundraisers, funeral luncheons and other formal and informal receptions. We offer a large selection of menu options for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, as well as Hot & Cold Hors D’Oeuvres for cocktail parties and Boxed Lunches for informal meetings. Let our friendly, efficient staff help cater your next event or party.

We will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day.

Stay tuned for details about our Annual New Year’s Eve Party. We will update our home page once the plans are finalized.

Covid-19 Update:
As of 9/28/2020, we are allowed to seat up to 200 people inside our banquet hall. We have implemented the following procedures to keep our team and our clients safe:

  • Our lobby, hallway and restrooms have all been completely remodeled, including touchless faucets, toilets and hand dryers in the restrooms.
  • Contactless standing hand sanitizers have been placed throughout the building.
  • All our staff members wear face masks throughout their entire shift. Buffet staff also wear disposable gloves when serving at the buffet.
  • All guests must wear a face mask to enter the facility and when they are at the buffet. Guests are required to use hand sanitizer before taking a plate and using any serving utensils. Guests are asked to wear face masks in all common areas (i.e., the main hallway, lobby & bathrooms).
  • Buffet servingware is changed every hour (or 30 minutes for shorter events)
  • We’ve incorporated weekly training meetings to train the staff and cover all necessary procedures. We’ve also implemented a health check system to track employee temperatures.
  • Guests are encouraged to socially distance and stand 6 feet apart in common areas.
  • Per the state guidelines, dancing at events is discouraged at this time.

NOW is the time to book your Holiday Party. Dates fill up quickly so don’t delay! We’ll help you plan the perfect holiday get-together for your home, business, organization or other group function. If your space is too small, our banquet hall can seat groups from 50 up to 400 (200 is our Covid-19 maximum capacity at this time). If your home or office is the place to be, invite us to bring the food to you!

We also cater to a variety of other venues in Lake, Cook & McHenry Counties, as well as southeast Wisconsin. Let us do all the shopping, prepping, cooking, serving and clean up so you can enjoy your own party for a change!
