We only had our reception there but the whole experience was fantastic! Clay was very responsive with our questions and making sure our guest with food allergies were taken care of. The set up was gorgeous, the food was amazing, and the bar service/drinks were wonderful! The entire staff was attentive to our needs the day of and Clay did a fantastic job answering my numerous questions quickly and effectively. Absolutely love this venue and would definitely recommend them!

A wonderful experience
When we booked with The Makoy Center we knew it would be the perfect venue for our day. Clay and Matt were welcoming and warm. They put all of planning worries at ease. Anytime I had a question they answered promptly and came up with the solutions we needed.
The tasting offered helped us sample the wonderful catering offered by the hall, and they were very gracious about bringing our two young, and energetic boys along.
We chose shrimp cocktail for our hors d'oeuvre. For dinner a mixed green and asparagus salad served with champagne vinaigrette, the crab stuffed cod, the marinated London broil, caramelized onion green beans, and herb roasted potatoes for our adult guests. And, for our younger guests we were able to offer chicken tenders, mac and cheese, and mixed fruit. They even accommodated our guests with dietary restrictions with chef's plates. The chef and staff did a flawless job in delivering and exceeding our expectations. The guests raved about how wonderful the food was. And, the service was impeccable. They even served our family made Greek pastry with great care and attention to quality.
Our day of coordinator did an excellent job setting up all of our decor for the event and improvising those little details we overlooked in planning. The room was gorgeous, I couldn't even imagine how perfectly our event would turn out, the reality was just breathtaking. Our coordinator was so attentive the day of, getting us anything we needed, keeping the flow of the event on track, and going above and beyond to assure that we had a beautiful memorable experience.
The signature cocktails were perfect, the bar was well serviced and all of our expectations were exceeded.
I would recommend The Makoy Center to anyone as an event space. They truly cared about our experience on our wedding day and it made all of it so special.
Thank you Makoy, for making our day so perfect.

Making Dreams a Reality!
Let's be honest, if I could give a 6th star, I totally would! I don't think we could have had the wedding of our dreams if it wasn't for The Makoy Center and their staff. After touring, we were sold. It gave us our theme, allowed us to have the laid back feel we were going for and a pizza buffet! We were truly able to check off every box that we had on our wish list. Matt and Clay listened to every crazy idea I had and helped me to achieve it or find a solution. They helped us through every step of the process and offered ideas and suggestions when we were stuck. We opted to decorate ourselves, so we had the day before to make the space our own. We walked in to all the tables already in position, so all we had to do was add the centerpieces. They let us borrow pipe and drape to create a Photo Booth and ceremony backdrop. Our day of coordinator Nick was great! He made the night run smoothly and ensured my husband and I got dinner and drinks during the bust night! He even went along with a last second streamer photo and made it happen! They help clean up after so you can walk out with no worries about returning to clean the venue. So much love to Matt, Clay, Nick and the whole team at The Makoy Center for allowing us to have the exact wedding that I had pictured in my mind. I have told everyone that the wedding that came to life was the exact one I had imagined! Others items of note. The food is great! They made us speciality pizzas and even a custom BLT pizza! Because we are in the mid-west i'll just say it, the ranch is wonderful! The drinks are wonderful and the bar is large! The getting ready rooms are perfect spaces for both the Bride and Groom and their parties. There are so many spaces around for photos, both inside the venue and out. 10 Stars! Highly recommend! Thank you!

Light, airy and yet this venue can be customized to fit any size wedding. Loved playing the harp there because of the fun everyone had!
As a DJ service that rotates from venue to venue on a weekly basis, its always refreshing to perform at the Makoy Center. The staff is always prepared, friendly and professional and our entire DJ staff always has good experiences there. The Makoy Center is one of the best places in Central Ohio for a wedding reception or private party.
