Our goal is creating unforgettable experiences and events on the campus of Northern Michigan University. Every meal, meeting, conference, reception or gala is as important to us as it is to you. We take care of the details so you can enjoy your event!


We're just going to be honest, we live in one of the most beautiful places in the country. From small meetings to multi day conferences and receptions we have the space to accommodate your event.*


So, you saw a meeting held in a room full of bubbles on Pinterest? We can help you recreate it! We can work with you and turn that vision into a realistic, creative, one-of-a-kind display.


Our food is prepared by an award-winning culinary team known for their unique creations. We believe your food should be a piece of the experience your guests will talk about long after the event is over.


We have the best staff. Period. Yes, we know that's a bold statement but the service, the execution and the professionalism delivered on a daily basis allows us to boast.


We are a team of out-of-the-box thinkers. We are people pleasers. We are foodies and décor fanatics. We want your event to be distinctive, to be executed flawlessly, and to reflect you! We want your food to be full of flavor and leave your guests impressed. We want your event to be unique, be elegant, and be Simply Superior.



Simply Superior did a phenomenal job on organizing my wedding reception! The food was beautifully displayed and was amazing. I would recommend Simply Superior for any wedding and would relive my night over and over again if I could!!!

The always friendly and professional staff at Simply Superior see to the details and "cater" to our every need so that we can focus on the conference, the program and our guests. The quality and presentation of the food is consistently outstanding. Always a good experience!
