    I don't normally review places, but i really had to review this one ..This place is simply AMAZING, I went for a food tasting on February 11, 2016. The policy is for potential clients to taste the food first before signing a contract. Arriving at the Graycliff from the back entrance, doesn't seem all that inviting , but the minute you walk in it is like your in another place. The front desk staff greeted us with open arms and was very responsive to us. Cathy who is the general manager , is simply the best. It was like , she knew everything i wanted before i even opened my mouth. We expressed our budget concerns and that was not a problem at all because she understood. Now, the food tasting , u are allowed to bring up to 6 people , but i only had four, my fiance his mom and my mother. We were full by the end of trying the appetizers. It was so much food for it to be a tasting. The dinner portion was nothing less, the size of the steaks to me were too big for a tasting lol , but they were juicy, tender and flavorful. The actual ballroom , was huge , the only issue my fiance had was the actually dance floor was a little small for him , but you have two hugs gazebo that added to the ballroom. Overall , this place is a diamond in a ruff and it deserves more rating then its actually receiving .

    Amazing Venue - Top Notch!

    We had our wedding at The Graycliff on June 1, 2019. We had a guest list of 200 people & our maitre d', John, was absolutely phenomenal. But let me rewind a bit, during our tour they answered all our questions, the owner sat down to work out pricing with us and that's the thing - he WORKED with our budget. The pricing we received for the service and quality we were provided was honestly a steal. They set up our cake through Palermo Bakery & we had such a great time at our cake tasting and most importantly our food tasting at The Graycliff. Everything they did for us was a memory that will last a lifetime, from the initial consultation, to food tasting to our very special day. John and his team went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect and stress free. All my guests were impressed by the food, venue, drinks and service. I cannot thank The Graycliff and their team enough for making our special day truly memorable and a 5 Star day all around (even with the minor mishaps - which had nothing to do with them). I strongly recommend any and every bride & groom to consider The Graycliff for their big day or any event! They have a life long customer/friend with me and my husband. Thank you!! - The Hincapies

What a great venue! My officiants love to work at the Graycliff; they treat their couples like royalty, with care and lavish attention to each detail that makes a party great!

The Graycliff is an amazing venue. There are 2 things that stand out for me: The food and the service. I always stay for the cocktail hours. I'm usually running to another wedding, but their food is so good, very well prepared and served perfectly by a staff that seems to be everywhere when you need them. One of the nicest bridal suites in the area. I highly recommend The Graycliff.
