Business Growth: Cecil's Catering

Cecil's offers restaurant, catering and event-planning services in the heart of downtown North Bay.
Grande Event 1

Legend has it that Cecil Shamus Fitzgerald, a bear-wrestling, bare-knuckle boxing Irishman, founded Cecil’s Brewhouse and Kitchen situated at the corner of Main and Wyld Streets in downtown North Bay.  

His love of great beer and genuine good food took him around the world many times in search of the finest brands to bring back to North Bay’s locals and visitors. 

During a recent renovation, Cecil’s brew notes and beer recipes were discovered hidden within a metal box in an old brick wall. 

Thus, his former brewery was reborn. You can even watch his beers brew while you enjoy a meal, watch a game or listen to some live acoustic sounds. 

Locally owned and community-driven, Cecil’s is available to serve your every need. 

With the recent addition of The Grande Event Centre, a dual-room events facility capable of accommodating up to 300 guests, Cecil’s has quickly become a well-respected name in the hospitality industry in North Bay and area. 

Whether you’re celebrating a milestone in your life or need to impress an important client, The Grande Event Centre will take care of all your needs. 

Our hospitality specialists will ensure your event is executed professionally, and the goal is to always go beyond a client’s expectations. 

With plenty of room and flexibility, The Grande can provide an unlimited arrangement of seating plans. 

Our friendly staff are there at your service and the full complement of services go beyond weddings, corporate events, birthday parties, anniversaries, business meeting spaces, social functions and celebration-of-life packages. They will make your journey effortless.

Your menu will be prepared by The Grande’s chefs, specializing in local, Canadian and international cuisine tailored to your specific needs.

On the day of your event, you and your guests will be served by uniformed servers attending to all your needs.

Our services include weddings, corporate events, business meeting spaces, social functions and celebration-of-life packages.

Whether you prefer a casual dining experience in the restaurant or our elegant and intimate Map Room, you’re planning a large-scale wedding, arranging a business luncheon or a quick delivered office lunch via our Express Menu, or if you’re just coming in for a good local brew or a family night out, Cecil’s is able to provide you with a spectacular culinary experience.
