This place is THE BEST.
This place is THE BEST. We were fortunate to have our rehearsal dinner at The Cracker Factory and were frankly, thrilled with everything. From the first time we toured, Maggie was on top of her game, showing us around, fielding questions, and accommodating our many requests. The space is absolutely stunning and our guests all raved about how unique the setting was. The execution of the evening was flawless--the addition of game rentals was a blast for all of our guests, and served as a fun ice breaker. Possibly the greatest part is the thoughtfully curated bar full of many local beverages, with a menu that dazzled even our most hipster-cool buds. The staff is amazing, the space is unreal and the process imperceptibly smooth. We highly, highly recommend.Sent on 06/18/2019

I can’t rave enough how much myself, fiancé and guest loved this venue. First off Maggie, Amy and Brandon made this whole process wonderful. They were available when we needed and there response time was excellent. This place will not disappoint. People are great. You can definitely tell they put a lot of time into this space. I can’t thank them enough. They met every expectation and some. Kiel and Adam .Sent on 05/22/2019

Couldn't have been better!
The Cracker Factory and absolutely BEAUTIFUL venue -Sent on 12/10/2018
Our guests could not stop raving about how awesome the space was. It's also very functional - we were able to have the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all feel very different, but occur in the same space with the help of curtains and a smart table layout. It was also very easy to customize to our style - they keep the space clean and minimal, which we appreciated so that we could bring in our own style here and there.
Beyond the venue itself, working with Maggie and Amy was so easy. They did all the standard venue stuff very well (e.g., set-up, help plan the decorations/floor plan), but they went far above and beyond (e.g., let us take photos in all areas of the building to get some really awesome shots, gave us amazing recommendations on vendors).
I would recommend this venue whole-heartedly to anyone looking for a warm, industrial, cool space.
