Our Exciting History

As the son of a German immigrant, Edward John Lehmann grew up with his family in Lake Villa, IL. As a boy, Edward watched his father help to build the town they lived in with his jewelry store, which grew to include men's and women’s clothes and hats.
In the summer of 1912, Edward Lehmann built the Lehmann Mansion as a summer home for his family, where the family enjoyed many years until it was purchased by the Village of Lake Villa in 2001. Shortly after, Bauer’s Catering became the exclusive caterer.
Today Bauer’s Catering still upholds the same values and sense of family that the Lehmann family became known for. We take extra care in making sure that every event is perfect from start to finish.
We offer both indoor and outdoor event options depending on the event and size. We look forward to working with you in planning your event at the Lehmann Mansion. If there is anything that we can do to accommodate your event, please let us know!

From the parents of the bride...

My wife and I can't thank Bauer's Catering enough for the wonderful work and help with planning for our daughters' wedding. Our daughter and her new husband were equally impressed with their professionalism. Doreen's planning was meticulous and we had great confidence in all of her recommendations. The approved list of outside vendors was extremely helpful. Obviously, the venue was awesome, but the staff really makes the difference and we could not have been more pleased. Every detail was taken care of by someone who truly cared and enjoyed their role. The entire staff helped make the wedding day perfect.
The owners, Eddie and Mary were easy to communicate with and went beyond expectations to make the evening memorable. The presentation of the meal was excellent and many of our guests commented on the quality of the food.
Bauer's Catering provides the vendors and Lehmann, the venue...a perfect match.
