Wanakah Country Club, founded in 1899, provides a dramatic and historic atmosphere for weddings, anniversaries, and other receptions. Located on the lake shore in Hamburg, a short fifteen minute drive from downtown Buffalo, an elegant interior is complemented by our heated terrace in season, and graced by a huge wood-burning fireplace in the great room during cooler weather.

Our skilled chefs will create custom menus for seated dinners of groups of up to 220 guests in our dining room, and 280 when the patio is available. We can easily accommodate larger groups with our popular "stations" format. Our experienced managers will help plan and execute the perfect event. We provide a remarkable experience at competitive prices. Private golf outings may be booked on Mondays when the club is closed to our members.

In addition to hosting their own private events, Wanakah members are entitled to sponsor their non-member relatives, friends or neighbors for receptions.  If you would like more information on our banquet facilities, please contact us at
