Grand Bear was amazing!! The staff ensured our day was perfect! It was even better than we imagined. Holly, Kathy and their staff are a dynamic team and the day was flawless. We will forever remember Saturday as one of the best days of our life. Thank you Grand Bear! I highly highly recommend them.Sent on 09/19/2018

Paula and the entire staff at Grizzly Jack's made my wedding absolutely perfect! It was difficult to book anything from another state, and I was having trouble getting much of anything done in the Utica area. I wanted to be outside, but IL State Parks do not allow liquor and I thought I would disturb campers elsewhere in the park- but Grizzly Jack's ALWAYS came through. I had my rehearsal dinner (inside), ceremony (outside on the canyon deck) and reception (pavilion just above the canyon)here. I believe I was the first outdoor reception they had done, but everyone was flexible, the food was fantastic, setup was convenient and they accommodated everything from wheelchair accessible viewing and seating to a few vegan guests and without a fuss, upon seeing my 2 year old niece, whipped her up some kid friendly food.Sent on 09/16/2015
The setting was beautiful, weather was perfect and everything went smoothly.
We had some of our wedding party rent a villa to stay in and it served as a good home-base as well while getting ready.
The large sign for the resort had our names and directions to the venue location on the scrolling electronic sign on street level so it was easy for guests to find and park as well.
I would DEFINITELY recommend this vendor.
