    AMAZING Venue and Staff

    There are not enough unique words in the dictionary to describe how excellent Arthur and Christina are! Their venue, staff, food, everything made our wedding go by so flawlessly and better than we could have ever imagined. All our friends and family are still raving about how good the food was and how beautiful the venue is. I can鈥檛 recommend The Brookside Banquets enough! AMAZING!!! They went above and beyond to deliver the perfect day for my husband and me and made my family, and I feel like we had nothing to worry about. They were so communicative, answered all our questions, and worked with us to do everything we wanted. Thanks to Arthur and Christina and The Brookside Banquets staff, our wedding was perfect.

    We recently got married at the Brookside on 11/11/21. The service was impeccable. Arthur, Christina and Lorraine were incredible with honoring all of our request and needs. We were blown away by the food, The short rib dinner was delicious. Our friends and family really loved cocktail hour. Everything was fresh and tasted delicious. The venue was immaculate.

    My bridal attendant. MEL - She was OUTSTANDING- she was incredibly nice and warm . It was like she was reading my mind. She was so helpful and attentive.
