A Family Business 30 Years Strong

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 Food” awards. Our family worked around a simple hospitality philosophy, one that made the restaurant a neighborhood favorite: treat your customers well and provide them with good food and high quality service. 

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 of southeastern Massachusetts and the Boston area, from Boston’s South Shore to Rhode Island. Thirty years later, our determination and passion has made Lakeview Pavilion a venue that sets the standard for the wedding industry in our local market. We are honored when our clients trust us to host the most important celebrations of their lives.

Our steadfast passion and commitment is event perfection. Our goal is to make the planning process enjoyable and stress free. When the big day comes, we lavish our clients and their guests with the attention they deserve, always incorporating personal touches that make every wedding unique and every event exceptional.

“We are proud to be part of Lakeview’s illustrious history and look forward to many more years of celebrating joyous occasions"
