    Absolutely Amazing.

    Everything was top-notch! Karen helped us plan our wedding and fielded many questions. During the wedding, the event staff made sure the bride, groom and their parents were taken care of the entire night! They held items for us overnight. Definitely plan to stay there! Incredible service, perfect steaks, and hot yummy food for all guests!

    The best!

    Choosing this venue was one of the best wedding decisions I made. At every step the staff was kind, professional and accommodating. We had to postpone our wedding due to Covid and the Desmond were wonderful about working with us to find a new date. Every detail was taken care of and the food was amazing. There were actually multiple weddings the same weekend as ours but I would never have known because they made us feel like the most important people in the world.
