We had a wonderful experience at the Boat Club! It was beautiful from top to bottom, inside and out. We loved that it was a small natural oasis in the middle of the city with a beautiful view. We heard nothing but positive feedback from our guests and HIGHLY recommend this venue!

I would highly recommend Mintahoe and the Minnesota Boat Club to anyone looking for a more intimate event. We ended up with around 100 guests and the space was a perfect fit. We had so many compliments on the food and questions about how we found such a beautiful venue. Katie was our coordinator, and I can’t say enough good things about her! She was very patient and happy to help with all of my last minute questions. I only saw her a few times during our wedding day but I know she was there during setup and stayed through dessert, and she had some very sweet comments for us after our wedding. They made the venue and catering part of planning very easy!

My husband and I had our ceremony on Raspberry Island and the reception at the Minnesota Boat Club. It was everything we wanted--nature, city, and water. Mintahoe Catering was also excellent.
