    Desta and her team did such a fabulous job on my wedding .. super easy to get ahold of and very nice to talk to. This sure isn’t there “first rodeo”. Giants Ridge and their team do an outstanding job. I had a wedding of about 275ppl and timing for the plated meals, was very reasonable . They sure know how to cater to you. Can’t say enough good things about my experience with Giants Ridge, The Chalet, The Quarry, and Desta. Great job!

    We’ve hosted our annual golf outing at Giant’s Ridge for quite some time. The service and attention we were given this year, was unmatched. We host 250 people, and the space and service were spot on. Occasionally we have a guest who gets a little unruly or rowdy, and the staff is very patient with each guest. They set up quickly and exactly the way we needed it. Food was ready in advance of the time we needed it.

    Everything was perfect! The food was exceptional and the staff very helpful, kind, and accommodating to our guests. We received so many positive comments from our guests! So glad we chose Giant’s Ridge for our daugther’s wedding. Kudos also to Bridal Family Decorating and Eveleth Floral who made the venue look absolutely breathtaking and Pep’s Bakery for the wonderful cake and cupcakes.
