    Karen and Denise were fabulous hosts for our wedding reception! They made all of our planning so easy and walked us through each step. It was a completely worry-free process for us, which was so invaluable because we had a lot of other little details to plan outside of the reception venue. Almost everyone I talked to commented on how wonderful the food was and how beautiful the decorations were, all of which were prepared and setup by Karen and Denise. If you think the prices seem high, think again because you are receiving fabulous food, excellent service, and a worry-free experience for you and your guests! We would absolutely recommend this venue to anyone who asks us!

    The Fireside's reply:

    Thank you for your kind words, Lauren! You and your family were a delight to be of service to!

    We were referred to Karen's by a friend who was going to have her reception there. She had so many good things to say about their service, so we were excited to meet with them regarding our reception. We met with Denise first, and she was very knowledgeable and very nice. The space was large, with ample room for dining, dancing, cake and bar service. We were expecting around 210 guests. What we really loved was that they took care of the decoration, cooked the food on site, and took care of the tear-down, all for a flat per-person rate that really cannot be beat anywhere. We had visited a few other full-service venues and found that they offered very similar services for double and triple the price. Karen, Denise and staff did an excellent job with our reception. The decor was beautiful, the food was delicious, and the staff was very attentive to our's, and our guests', needs. We would highly recommend Karen's Fireside to any couples who are looking for a venue that will provide top-notch service and not break the bank.

    Karen and Denise were wonderful to work with! They were very accommodating to our requests. Their staff was efficient and helpful. We got many comments on what a lovely evening it was. Because they do all the set up and take down, it made our daughter's wedding weekend less stressful, especially since we were from out of town.
