The New Englander Banquet Center is happy to accommodate your event, no matter the size. We have hosted 500-guest wedding receptions to intimate corporate meetings, as well as surprise birthday parties and memorial dinners. Our competent staff is ready to work with and serve you to ensure your special event is exactly what you’re looking for.

The New Englander/Ridgewood Room

The space we are most well-known for, The New Englander, captures the beauty, elegance, and style you most need for your special event. Also known as the Ridgewood Room, this 6,000-square foot room features thirty-two foot high Cathedral ceilings and three spectacular crystal ballroom chandeliers. With space large enough to hold 500, it is the ideal venue for wedding receptions or other large parties. Additionally, clients may rent out a smaller portion of the room at a reduced rate for corporate meetings, parties, or other smaller events.

Seating arrangements for this room include: 500 guests via theater style, 400 guests via mix of round and rectangular tables with a dance area, 260 guests via round tables with a dance area, 200 guests via round tables for meetings, or 175 guests via classroom style.

Crane Room Dining Room

Our dining area is a great location to hold large or small parties, and our staff is happy to work with you to make accommodations. The back of the dining room is available for large dinner reservations or casual parties.

CR Room

Looking for the perfect intimate space to hold meetings, birthday parties, or showers? Look no further than our CR Room. With space for up to 50 guests, the CR Room is private space to allow for conversation to flow and memories to be made.

CR Loft

With one of our newest additions to the Crane Room, the CR Loft welcomes guests with a birds-eye view of our brewery, and rustic decor. With room for 150 guests, your party will truly experience the industrial feel that makes the Crane Room so unique through the built in bar and view of the forestry right outside the windows.

CR Terrace

Another one of the newest additions to our restaurant, the CR Terrace features a large, open space for 150 guests. Here, you will have an open view of the newly designed garden and historic columns to give your party a special feel that guests will not soon forget.
