Housed in the historic 1890's McCormick Mansion, this landmark Chicago treasure is a sought-after location for weddings, receptions and rehearsal dinners of all sizes, providing warm professional service, award-winning foods and a backdrop for spectacular wedding event photography.

For your event, choose a menu featuring rock salt-Roasted Prime Ribs of Beef, hand-carved to order and served tableside from gleaming silver carts, or create your own custom menu. Our professional wedding coordinator and executive chef have developed a selection of affordable menu packages or will create a custom menu for your guests. Whether you choose buffet or sit-down event options, our creations are both picturesque and delicious. Among our specialties are the best Roasted Prime Ribs of Beef available in the world. Gleaming silver carts and the grand carvers who hand-carve standing roasts to order are among the hallmarks of the Lawry's The Prime Rib dining experience, but take a supporting role when enhancing the uniqueness of your wedding rehearsal dinner or reception.

Enjoy the convenience of being married and having the reception at the same location.
