Our Story


In search of the “American Dream”, our family emigrated from Greece in 1981. By 1982, we had established Steve’s Greek Restaurant on Newbury Street in Boston, where the entire family worked. The business became an instant success—featured in major newspapers and radio broadcasts, and winning many “Best Greek Food” awards. Thanks to our family’s hospitality philosophy, to “treat your customers well and provide them with good food and the best service”, the restaurant was a neighborhood favorite.

In 1989, we discovered Lakeview Ballroom, a secluded, historical lakefront property surrounded by tranquil woodlands. It was love at first sight. We knew from the very beginning that the uniqueness of the property, combined with our vision, passion, and determination, would enable us to transform it into one of the most distinctive wedding and event venues from southeastern Massachusetts, the Boston area and Boston’s South Shore to Rhode Island.  25 years later, our determination and passion for our business has grown and become stronger, as we made Lakeview Pavilion a venue that set the standard for the wedding industry in our local market. We are honored when our clients entrust us with hosting the most important celebrations of their lives.

Unfortunately, our beloved Lakeview Pavilion was destroyed by a fast-moving fire on April 5, 2014.  The accidental fire occurred during an indoor wedding ceremony, and while no one was hurt in the three-alarm blaze, the quick response of firefighters was not enough to save the building. Although we were heartbroken by the loss, we immediately focused our energy on the rebuild.  As a result, a stunning new Lakeview Pavilion is slated to open in 2015.  

Our continued passion and commitment is to make every event perfect.  Our goal is to make the planning process enjoyable and stress free. And when the big day comes, we lavish our clients and their guests with the attention they deserve. We believe in going beyond the expected with special touches that make every wedding unique and every event exceptional.
