    Nothing short of incredible!

    We are weeks past my wedding and people STILL can’t stop talking about it! They can’t stop talking about the beauty of the venue, the staff, and the food. We have gotten so many reviews saying this was the best wedding food they have ever had! Jan and Jayme are so extremely flexible and were always available for me when I had questions. Without them I would not of had the wedding of my dreams!!

    RAVE REVIEWS FROM ALL MY WEDDING GUESTS!
    I just had my wedding sat Oct 6th at the Bluff Banquet and Conference Center in Grand Rapids, Mi. Every guest had to come tell me how amazing the food was. The amount of food alone for the price can't be beat. Everything from friendly service to beautiful surroundings. They went above and beyond any expectation i could have ever had. Even the decaf coffee got rave reviews. I still have people calling me to tell me how amazing it was. I highly suggest anyone checks it out. THey do tasting with the place set up like a receiption every couple months or so its posted on their website and its not very expensive. The bar tenders they use are also amazing people. Couldn't have asked for a more amazing day! THe only disappointment i had was that they don't have a restaurant i can go to to eat the amazing food more often :)

    I have worked two weddings at the Bluff in the past (as a photographer) and both times were very enjoyable! The staff is very pleasant and the grounds and interior are very well kept. Not only was the food well prepared, it seems to be very well managed for time and service. Great place to have a wedding or event!
