We are no slouches when it comes to planning and pricing an event like this. And Barracks won hands down for references, experience, equipment, venues and, not insignificantly, price. The Eastport Banquet Center turned out to be perfect for our 250-some guests. Clearly, they take good care of the place. The floor was refinished a few months ahead of the wedding. And the outside deck was power-washed days before. Everything was so neat, clean and sparkly. The menu choices were almost overwhelming. But most importantly, Barrack's willingness to work with us (and to work seamlessly with our wedding planner) was most impressive, right down to making a bridal couple’s cheesecake with a special cake-top ornament we had found. Then, on the steamy hot wedding day, without being asked, the caterer had ice water outside for the guests and electric fans for the bridal party. Guests from 18 states remarked on the quality of the food and service, the friendliness of the staff, the gorgeous setting. No single detail was overlooked. Barracks scored big again the very next day with the post-wedding party at our house and its terrific picnic dinner. Everything was exactly as they’d said it would be. Based on our experience, it’s easy to see why this family business has been going for 80 years.
