I couldn't have picked a better venue for my wedding reception! Alisha and the staff were so accommodating before, during, and after the reception. They checked in on us numerous times to see if we needed anything. The guests raved about the delicious food and beautiful atmosphere even months later. If you are considering The McKinley for your wedding reception or special event, I highly recommend it!Sent on 06/23/2017

The McKinley catered our wedding at Cornerstone in Apalachin, NY. We were absolutely blown away with their knowledge, professionalism and suggestions for how to have the best wedding ever. They exceeded our expectations beyond belief. Huge shout out to Alisha (and then later on, Sara) for helping us to have a stress-free day and days leading up to the big day. Couldn’t have asked for a better caterer. Guests were impressed with how many staff were present to help with anything and everything. They made everything seamless and incredible. Extremely highly recommended!!!Sent on 09/17/2018

The McKinley catered our wedding in August at Cornerstone at W&W. I cannot thank Alisha, Sara and the amazing McKinley staff enough for all they did for us. From the very first meeting with Alisha we were blown away. I am not even sure where to begin with how much we loved Alisha! She went above and beyond for us and made sure our wedding day would be perfect! We did not have any worries the day of because of her. Sara was also phenomenal! She was so kind and sweet and took care of us and all our guests on our wedding day. She even took care of a few incidents for us and made sure my hubby and I didn’t have to worry about anything. We were so blown away with how many wait staff members were present at our wedding also! Each of them were so nice and friendly and made sure everyone and everything was taken care of. Last but not least the food was incredible! We are still getting compliments from our guests on how delicious it was! If you are getting married, do yourself a favor and book the McKinley ASAP :). Best decision we made!Sent on 09/21/2018
The McKinley Price Rates
The McKinley, under the leadership of Alisha Fisher, has returned to the front of the pack. The space is unique for the Southern Tier. It's size allows for the largest of gatherings, but thanks to the clever layout, even a more modest sized event will feel cozy. The food has always, and continues to impress. For me, however, the true measure of a great venue is the staff and I'm ecstatic to report that this is one area where The McKinley has got the formula down. As an entertainment professional, it is a genuine treat to work with like-minded professionals who put the success of an event above any personal agenda. Alisha is easy to work with and very accommodating. You will be so happy with your decision to host your event here!
Alisha and her staff are amazing! They go out of their way to make sure their events run smoothly and that the couple can just sit back and enjoy their day. I love the ambiance at the McKinley - the sunken dance floor is so awesome and I love the many ways to decorate the space!
Excellent to work with....love this staff and venue
