Yes, for special occasions and celebrations we are often asked for banquet/party services. We provide an unique setting and atmosphere, a perfect match for that special occasion. We can offer a sit down dinner, buffet, outside steak cookout, or shore-dinner. If you are looking for a location for an anniversary or birthday, an yearly event, charity dinner, or even wedding, please consider Teal Lake.
Capacity: To offer our best service and food quality, we must restrict our capacity to 90 people for a sit down and buffet dinner. Our forte is groups of 30-50 people.
Our Dining Room has three sections. The two “extra” dining rooms, one seats up to 20 and the other can seat up to 32, are perfect for groups. They can be closed off so you feel free to toast, cheer, and laugh the night away without worry of disturbing others. These are available at anytime for parties.
The full Dining Room, using all three sections, can seat 90 people. Since our resort guests also join us for dinner, we can only offer this on Tuesday and Thursday evenings during the summer. However, in Spring and Fall there are possibilities of using this on weekend nights.
Outside events at Teal Lake are splendid. The backdrop of the lake, forest, and historic Main Lodge sets the perfect mood for a festive occasion. Many groups enjoy our outside cookouts with its relaxed yet high quality atmosphere, picnic tables and bonfire. This can be set up outside the Main Lodge, at the Golf course, at your cabin, or on the wilderness islands.
Bar and Beverages: Teal Lake is happy provide full liquor, beer, and wine service. The Captain's Cabin bar has a beautiful overlook of Teal Lake and is a wonderful place to start the party. It can easily fit 40 people for a reception with plenty of overflow on outside decks. This is normally on the honor system, but for bigger parties a bartender can be provide for nominal fee. We can also arrange for a bar or keg to be set up outside. Our wine list is carefully chosen (and tested) by the Ross Family, it is small but excellent and affordable.
Menu: Lunch can be a brat cookout, or deli buffet, or hot buffet (we do a wonderful pastry so quiche is a great option). Outside cookouts can be hamburger/brat option, walleye shore-lunch, or steak. For dinner, we usually offer 2 items (off the regular menu) – an either or choice. But we can cater whatever you prefer. Just ask us…

Weddings: Teal Lake is a beautiful place for a wedding ceremony, reception, and/or groom's dinner. Please keep in mind though that our capacity is 90 people. We enjoy having weddings, and everyone has a great time with all the many activities Teal Lake as to offer. Instead of a single night celebration, extend it over a few days, there is plenty to keep everyone amused. We are happy to work closing with you in the organizing, and even have a special packet to help organize it. Please contact us directly for details.
