We had our rehearsal dinner here in April of 2018. We did the Southern BBQ buffet and the food was delicious! They set up the room very well and everyone was friendly and helpful.

Magnificent! Everything was wonderful. The reception was enjoyed by all of our guests. Guests commented on how beautiful the reception was and how great the food was. Alice, the wedding coordinator, was great to work with. Always professional and available. She has an eye for detail and is competent in what she does will. She is friendly and personable. She put at ease and we trusted her judgment. She never let us down. Actually she could not have done a better job. The entire staff was commendable. I would recommend this venue and Alice to anyone planning a wedding. It was the icing on the cake!
