My husband and I had our wedding reception at the Bank building on January 6, 2018. Patty was extremely helpful and answered all of my questions promptly. She was very understanding. Our dinner was buffet style for a little over 50 people. Our guests raved about the food. They also loved the venue. It was the perfect space for us. We had fun dancing the night away. Even with all of our additions such as butlered appetizers, lamb carving station & extra hour of open bar, everything was within our budget. The staff was very kind & helpful to us & our guests. We were so happy with the impeccable service that we received. I am so grateful that I found them on Wedding Wire. I will try to update with pictures from my photographer when I receive them. Thanks again! We plan on using Cantwell's Tavern for future events.Sent on 01/08/2018

I can't say enough about how happy I am with the decision to use Cantwell's for our catering. Patty was fantastic at communicating and answering all of questions quickly. I felt completely at ease knowing that everything would be taken care of and that she would ensure that everything was set up how we wanted. My guests all raved at how great all of the food was and we got tons of compliments on the venue- the Corbit-Sharp house and historic bank building. All of the servers and the bartenders were great and friendly as well. I have absolutely no complaints. I feel we got an amazing value for the price and would absolutely recommend Cantwell's.Sent on 11/08/2017
