    Professional. Timely. Great food. Incredible.

    PSB was an incredible venue with incredible staff. Danielle and Nitsy were so great to work with leading up to our special day. Both were extremely helpful, quick to answer any questions via email or text, and flexible.

    With rain in the forecast leading up to our wedding day, they knew how much we wanted to have our ceremony on their deck outside. Even with thunderstorms in the forecast day of, they held off on setting up to wait to see if the rain held off. We're extremely grateful they did as we were able to have our wedding ceremony outside. I can't imagine the stress this put the staff under, but we're extremely grateful for them all.

    PSB as a whole is a gorgeous venue and has so much room for those that attend. Nitsy and Danielle were great during the reception, and also coordinated with our band, photographer, the taco food truck we had pull up for late night bites right next to the reception hall, and company that provided our wedding cheesecake.

    The food was choice. As most couples are, we were a bit nervous about a wedding venue also providing food and it being quality for everyone. However, without even asking, we had numerous guests, old and young, come up to us and tell us their plate was very delicious. No matter if they received the beef, chicken, or vegetable lasagna.

    My wife and I are incredibly happy with the venue we chose, and we can't wait to go back and visit for a beer, lunch and see how the staff are doing.

    Thank you, PSB!

    Everything we wanted

    We held our wedding reception at Prairie street and it was perfect. We had a lot of decorations to move in and the venue was wonderfully accommodating. They even let us come in late the night before for last minute fixes. The food was great and the beer was fantastic. They let us create two special event drinks, and worked with us to create a brand new drink that included matcha! The venue was beautiful and was everything we wanted. If you want a beautiful venue for a reception, you found it!

    Awesome Rockford Brewery!

    We loved having our wedding reception at Prairie Street! They were incredibly helpful and communicative in the preparation. The space is beautiful and location is really cool being on the river.
