I am seeking a restaurant or hotel that has a private dining room. I wish to host a buffet luncheon for about 30 people. I am coming from out-of-town and need suggestions.

Indiana Grand Casino can accomidate that size group. We had a business meeting after dinner there. You should contact them about buffet options. The Hampton Inn has a meeting room that could possibly be catered as well.

I suggest you check out restaurant oriented sites. My site of choice, Urbanspoon, includes a filter that will allow you to see restaurants that can deal with "private parties." This is under "features," presumably many (if not all) of the restaurants that have this flag will be able to handle a group of your size.

This should pretty quickly give you a list of possible places, show you cuisine options, give you some kind of idea of a budget, and some information on the quality of the restaurants (via votes and/or reviews).

I confess, I haven't checked out Shelbyville on Urbanspoon, but generally speaking my experience is that most of Indiana has the critical mass of Urbanspoon users necessary to make this sort of crowd sourced information reasonable accurate. Don't have time to provide a link to the Shelbyvill page on Urbanspoon right now, maybe later today.

Hope this helps,
