Opened in 1965, at the corner of Bradley and Center Ridge roads, Wagner’s of Westlake is celebrating 50 years as a catering facility. At that time, they were one of only a small number of banquet centers located in the United States. Today, Wagner’s has hosted more wedding receptions than any other banquet center in western Cuyahoga County.

Many of their guests began frequenting Wagner’s when they attended their prom at the facility and then went on to attend corporate events, bridal showers, fundraisers, and of course, wedding receptions  “What is really wonderful is when a mom comes in with the bride and groom and tells us she had her own wedding reception here,” says Mary Crawford, director of events.

Wagner's anniversary was acknowledged with proclamation from the city of Westlake.
