With Boatwerks you cannot go wrong. They have a professional staff that can meet all of your needs. I attended a charity function (Humane Society) at their venue and we had spectacular food that was over the top. The room was gorgeous. I own my own event center and will be utilizing Boatwerks as one of our preferred caterers in the near future.
