About Us

Banquet Hall & Event Catering Buffalo, NY

Established in 1964 as a family owned and operated pizzeria on the corner of Ridge and Abbott Road in Lackawanna, the business relocated to its current location just across the street a few years later. The restaurant blossomed expanded into a full-service restaurant, banquet hall and one of the trendiest night spots in Buffalo. Perfect for just about any event including, corporate events, wedding receptions, anniversary parties and more!

Now more than 50 years after it first opened its doors, the third generation of the family has realized their long-time vision of transitioning back to becoming known as a premier banquet center and social destination.

The White Elephant Comes Home Again

Before purchasing the building, we referred to it as the “White Elephant on Abbott” because it sat unused for so long. We knew it would be a huge undertaking and naming the business took almost as long as the reconstruction. Then one day, it was suggested that a white elephant with its trunk up-turned is thought to bring good luck, so we considered the name “J’s White Elephant”.

The Royal Room provides a perfect setting for any occasion that can accommodate up to 200 guests.

This room also includes a charming area with a full-size bar, fireplace and casual seating that offers a unique way for guests to mingle. Perfect for a wedding reception!
