Fabulous Party Spot!
As parent of groom we had our greeting party here the night before the wedding for out of town guests and wedding party. It was a perfect spot. Jorie, the event planner, was helpful from the start and with us being out of town was wonderful to work with even long distance.Sent on 03/20/2020
The space was large to accomodate our crowd, the food delicious , the bar amply stocked and atmosphere so much fun for all attending.
I would highly recommend the spot and Jorie to work with for anyone wanting a unique spot to through a large party or wedding.

We loved Houston Hall
Like so many of the couples who reviewed, we were looking for a space different from the typical banquet hall. We toured many different venues (including multiple breweries as we love craft beer) and I knew when we saw Houston Hall that it was the one. The setting is absolutely beautiful! Day of our guests couldn't stop commenting about how gorgeous the place was!Sent on 04/16/2019
Amanda was great to work with. She was very responsive and we never felt out of touch with her. She made the whole process seamless. We just showed up and the place was gorgeous. Everything went smoothly.
The food was amazing. Our friend commented on the importance of an on site kitchen and how at most weddings, you see an appetizer once and then never again but at our wedding the appetizers kept coming around and were delicious. The sliders and the chicken empanadas especially were a big hit. My mom was very worried about the family style meal and that there wouldn't be enough food but it just kept coming. Everyone loved the family style meal! As a vegetarian (my partner is not), I felt like I had so many options and that I could eat as much of what I wanted. Highly recommend the brussel sprouts.
Definitely recommend Houston Hall for anyone looking for a beautiful place for their wedding!

Best Venue Ever!
Houston Hall was my absolute dream venue! It only took me a year to find and it was a place my husband had frequented throughout our relationship!! Amanda was incredible to work with from our walk through to our tasting, leading up to our actual wedding day. The food was incredible!! Our friends and family raved about the cocktail hour appetizers and couldn’t say enough great things about dinner! We went with a family style dinner and everyone loved how much food their was to choose from. Our guests danced the night away and raved about how it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to!Sent on 01/17/2020
