    Perfect Wedding

    The Chart house hosted both our wedding ceremony and reception and their services from start to finish were amazing. Their private garden area by the lake was peaceful and beautiful. We had perfect weather, were shaded by the trees, and had a lovely (quiet) background of geese families swimming by during our ceremony. The back garden area was also a stunning place for pictures and socializing throughout the evening. Staff was attentive, friendly, and efficient. The food was very tasty and they had a great menu to pick from. Kim and Kayla communicated with me throughout the process and went above and beyond to make our wedding special and custom to our style. Along with all of these positives notes the price for a wedding was amazing!! They are not over priced like every other venue in the area. This place is truly a hidden gem and I highly recommend it both for everyday dining and events.

    Beautiful Setting & Wonderful Service

    Planning this wedding was a delight with the Chart House staff, and everything went as we discussed. Great setting for an outdoor wedding and so convenient to move inside for the reception.

    Highlights for us included having a harpist who could play both outdoors and indoors, wonderful setting in the gazebo and near the lake for photos. Dinner was tasty and everyone served promptly. Liked the location of our head table facing all guests and photo booth was a hit.

    Entire day and evening were fun for everyone and no regrets! Thanks to Chart House staff for making this a day to remember.
