Great venue for your reception. Staff is great to work with!!!
We have very much enjoyed many events at the Grand River Center over many years including weddings, corporate dinners, fund raisers, craft shows, and birthday parties for our own children. All of the events have been a joy to attend from the staffing, the facility, and organization! The Riverview room overlooking the Mississippi River is stunning in itself. To have the facility for an event of your own is priceless. What a gift to give to your family and friends; a gorgeous location, great food, and personable staff! FIVE STAR * * * * *
