This venue and staff is everything! The hall is absolutely stunning, and Jamie is truly the best. She is flexible, professional, and all around helpful. We are still getting compliments on how beautiful the venue was and how delicious the food was. We will remember this day for the rest of our lives. Don’t pass this place up, you won’t regret it!Sent on 02/07/2018

Thank you so much, Onion Pub and Brewery!!!!!
We just had our wedding at the Onion Pub, and I could not recommend this venue more. It is so unique and special and was a huge reason why our wedding was so happy and so much fun.Sent on 06/03/2019
The event coordinator, Jamie, was amazing. We booked the Onion Pub about 16 months before our wedding, and over those 16 months, I probably asked Jamie 1,000 questions. She was always kind, positive, and prompt in her response, and seeing her during our consultations was always a pleasure. She also made some recommendations in regards to photographer, florist, and local hotels and all I can say is listen to Jamie. We did take those recommendations, and she really pointed us in the right direction. I don't have a single vendor complaint.
Then of course there is the venue itself. It is just so whimsical and beautiful. I love the balcony, the lake, the ivy climbing up the walls, the massive windows in the Great Room. So many of our guests complimented the venue, and it's been great seeing them post up pictures of themselves on the balcony, overlooking the lake or infront of the front mural.
I hope it's not bragging to say we had an incredibly fun and beautiful wedding, and I think the charm of the Onion Pub was a massive part of that. And it's so affordable too! Seriously, this place is amazing and we're so grateful we had our wedding there. We highly recommend it!
