    Wonderful Experience!

    We cannot be more pleased with our wedding experience at The Mainland. The venue was beautiful and perfect for both our inside and outside wedding photos. It captured our rustic feel and warm atmosphere. Kim (Matre’ de) and Melinda (Event Coordinator), exceeded all expectations. Kim made the process smooth, simple, and most importantly, stress free. The day of our wedding, there was nothing to worry about because Kim took care of everything, all while making sure we both had everything we needed. She was down to earth and we couldn’t have asked for anyone better. The food was incredible, and our guests had so many positive things to say about all their meals. We received so many compliments on the venue, food, staff, and service. Thank you for making our special day as perfect as we had envisioned it to be!

    The Mainland at Holiday Inn Manahawkin's reply:

    Thank you for having trust in us for yours and Andrew's special day.
    Congratulations to you both!

    The pleasure was ours and we hope to see you back in the future!

    Amazing everything

    I had my wedding at The Mainland October 1st, 2022 and we had booked it two years prior. Everything about it was amazing! I was telling my husband the next day "If people didn't enjoy our wedding, they are squares." The food was delicious and everything was beautiful. If my husband and I could do it all over again, we wouldn't change a thing. I wouldn't be surprised if we came back to use the terrace room for other events!

    The Mainland at Holiday Inn Manahawkin's reply:

    The pleasure was ours! Thank you for trusting us with one of the most important days in your lives! We were honored to share this experience with you and can't wait to share other events with you!
    Congratulations!
