    Delicious Food - Great Service

    The staff on site was very courteous and went above and beyond to ensure that our celebration for our employees was a success. The chef hat, professionalism, the food, and positive attitude will be remembered by our management team. The food venue was a big hit and one of the senior managers present indicated that we had set the bar for an event of this type. We recommend Bennett Curtis for all catering needs!!

    Staff Christmas party

    We had a group of 28 for a staff Christmas party. The dinner options were perfect for our diverse group. The murder mystery was hilarious and very interactive. Our group truly was having the best time. Loved the venue, food and the actor’s were very entertaining. I would highly recommend it. They also a Harry Potter themed party, several of us would to attend in the future.

What a great historic place to have a wedding. We enjoy working there. Scott and Keri make it a pleasure to have a wedding there. The food the staff the serene atmosphere just wonderful. If your looking for a garden wedding this place is great, with backup of indoor reception. The indoors of the mansion brings you back to the days when elegance was the norm not having your reception in a big box. If your stressed about the wedding the B/C is one stop shopping with the "ULTIMATE PACKAGE" all you have to do is in one day say please take care of my wedding. They will.... from food tuxes cake and photography. Go there it's worth the drive!
