    Amazing experience

    Jennifer at McMenamins Anderson School House was so helpful in organizing our wedding in Haynes Hall & Square. The tables, chairs, linens, wait staff, and planning were all included with the cost of meeting the minimum for food and drink catering. What a deal!

    Perfect Rehearsal Dinner Spot

    We went to McMinnamins for our rehearsal dinner. Booking was easy and the service was great. We had 25 people. Drinks and food didn't take long at all. They put us in a side room so we felt like everyone could chat and hangout.

Such a great venue! The property is expansive and lighted with fire pits, torches and string lights at night. The staff was very helpful, lending me a cart for my equipment. I would gladly work with them again! (Or go to their pub on the weekend!)
