About Us

Catering Indianapolis Since 1986

Ritz Charles was established over 30 years ago with a vision of a high-quality venue focusing on social gatherings, fundraisers, corporate meetings, and of course, weddings. The beautiful 15,000 square foot facility on Meridian Street was the catalyst to additional, unique  venues and offsite catering. Over the years, Ritz Charles has acquired a renowned culinary staff, professional servers, dedicated managers, and a talented Design Team. With 10 exclusive  and unique venues including the VIP suites at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Ritz Charles Catering is one of the largest caterers in Indianapolis. Our experience assures you the best event possible.

The original Ritz Charles features the Ballrooms, Garden Pavilion and Chapel.  Unique venues across the city that trust their events to Ritz Charles include City Hardware, Lindley Farmstead at Chatham Hills, Coxhall Mansion and Gardens, The Indianapolis Public Library, The Indianapolis Artsgarden, The Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Laurel Hall, The Barn at Bay Horse Inn, and many more. Additionally, Ritz Charles caters to private homes, corporate offices, and personal parties. As a proud family owned business, each event receives a personal design team specialist and experienced day of event coordinator that are thrilled to be a part of your special event.
