Catering FAQ

How do I know you will do a good job?

We recommend you check out our catering reviews. If you and/or your committee have never sampled our food, we invite you to come out for a free tasting. Please call LazyBones SmokeHouse at (586) 775-7427 to set up a time that is convenient for you. One taste and you’ll know we’ll do a great job.

How much notice do you need to book my catering?

  • For Drop-Off/Pick-Up Catering, we ask for 24 hours notice. However, please feel free to call us at (586) 775-7427 for last minute orders. We’ll move heaven and earth to take care of you.
  • For Full Service Catering, we recommend you book as far in advance as possible, to insure your date is reserved on our calendar. Feel free to call us for short notice events. If we have an opening, we are more than happy to work with you.

Do you have any minimums for catering?

Is Delivery Available?

Yes. We currently offer delivery to Metro Detroit and surrounding areas. Delivery charges are based on distance from the restaurant and size of the order. Please call (586) 775-7427 for specifics.

What levels of service do you offer?

We currently offer the following:

    • Self Service Buffet: Served in disposable aluminum pans and trays; perfect for leftovers and easy clean up. You can either come to our restaurant or have it delivered.
    • Full Service Buffet: We will bring our table cloths, serving bowls, stainless steel chaffing dishes and serving pieces. Our Catering Captain will set-up and replenish your buffet and keep it tidy during your event. Afterwards, he will clean up everything.
    • On Site Grilling: The same service and inclusions as a Full Service Buffet, plus a Charcoal Grill and BBQ Chef on site to cook for your guests.
