Above and Beyond

We chose MCGOVERN’S for our August wedding and could not have asked for a better experience! Kathy and Joe went above and beyond to make our day amazing. Our wedding photos came out beautifully against the background of the water and gazebo. It was just so convenient for our guests to attend the reception and ceremony all in one location. There was plenty of parking for all of our guests and the food was outstanding! The servers and bartender were all so kind. If we had to do it all over again we would pick this location without hesitation!!
