    Wonderful experience for cocktail and dinner reception. Excellent value. The Prairie Meadows planner (Kristen ) was prompt in replying to our many questions and went "above and beyond" . She exceeded our expectations. The staff was attentive and pro active. We are still receiving compliments on the food and beverages. This venue was perfect for us.
