With our award-winning Executive Chef, on-property scratch kitchen, and our fierce dedication to fresh, seasonal, and local ingredients, the Payne-Corley House continually raises the bar for event cuisine. We take deep pride in presenting our guests with delectable and creative, yet approachable food that deliciously mingles modern tastes with our traditional Southern roots.

Our Executive Chef and owner, Michael Ganley, is a classically trained chef in the European style with more than 20 years of experience in the luxury hospitality and restaurant industry. In addition to overseeing the Payne-Corley kitchen and chef’s herb garden, Michael runs our critically acclaimed sister restaurant, Park Café, which is located just blocks away in the heart of historic downtown Duluth.

We invite you to join us in experiencing a new way of approaching “banquet” cuisine with the culinary excellence of the Payne-Corley House.
