    WOW! I cannot say enough about this place! We had our reception here on 9/22/18. It was amazing! Everyone was so wonderful! Katelyn was incredible and so great to work with, she had everything covered and we had nothing to worry about! All of our guests were blown away with the food, the service, and the location! If you are looking for a smaller venue in the heart of Albany this is a PERFECT spot!
