Banquets and Catering

Sharing our Passion for Excellence in Food and Service since 1975

Banquets and Catering by The Hearthstone is the culmination of 36 years of continuous restaurant, banquet and catering experience by Franklin & Gina Lister and their talented and dedicated staff.

Our reputation rests with our high level of guest services and innovative menus consisting of specially sourced ingredients and made from scratch recipes adapted to major food trends both contemporary and classic. Whether an elegant wedding or an office luncheon with clients, our innovative menus and creative displays will make your event beyond the ordinary.

From 13 to 13,000, from rock stars to TV actors to the US Navy Blue Angels to backyard BBQs, The Hearthstone has the experience needed to make your next event one to remember.

We understand that it is often overwhelming to plan and organize an event.

Bobbi Townsend, our Banquet and Catering Director, is dedicated to developing a comfortable, trusting relationship with you from concept to planning to dessert with a level of detail that is second to none.

In addition to countless weddings, some events that we have catered in recent years include: Muskegon Museum of Art Anniversary Galas, Annual Muskegon County Museum Lumber Barons Ball, Gala opening of the Frauenthal renovation, Bosch of Indiana company picnic, Muskegon Area Chamber of Commerce Anniversary.

In addition to full-service banquets, we also offer a vast selection of catered lunch options which can be delivered to your office, business or home.

Business / Corporate Lunch Catering

We will happily bring the Hearthstone to your office, home or location of your choice. All of our lunch catering menu items are also available for "pick up". Same day ordering is available on most items. Menu selections are displayed on high quality disposables which are included in each order. Delivery and set-up are available for a nominal fee.

I have been using the Hearthstone Restaurant for approximately 15 years to cater lunches to physicians offices. The quality of the food has always been exceptional. The salads are always fresh, the soups phenomenal and the sandwiches are overstuffed and fantastic.
