    Great staff and great food (they use Unique Cuisine for all of their catering). Anything we requested for our day was granted and without any hassle. Very organized and accommodating staff! Also, our family loved that staying at the Lod Cook Hotel, so easy to walk across and on LSU's campus!

    Lod Cook was wonderful! They have a hotel directly behind the venue so no one had to drive. They also fixed my husband and I a plate of food from our reception and put it in our suite with a complimentary bottle of champagne. They were fabulous!
