Great place for small reception or rehearsal dinner!
I was sooo happy when I reached out to Surf Room to potentially host my September 12 (2020) wedding earlier this year. We had initially planned for a 150 person wedding at a different venue but then June rolled around and it looks like we would need to totally re-plan our wedding! I had been in touch with Kris about doing our rehearsal dinner, so I reached back out and FORTUNATELY they were available. Working with Kris was so easy - she was responsive, and detail-oriented. She definitely is very service-oriented. We had an amazing tasting -- so much delicious food -- from which the chef was able to accommodate some of our particular requests. We ended up using Surf for ourSent on 10/08/2020

A perfect evening.
We held our rehearsal dinner at Surf. The space was perfect for our group. The staff were very friendly and attentive to all. The food was exceptional!Sent on 09/27/2020
I worked with Kris and she kept me informed from the first time we spoke, a full year in advance of our event. She answered all my questions, replied to all emails in timely fashion and kept us on time as the evening progressed. It was the perfect way to kick off our wedding festivities! I highly recommend Surf for any event. If need be, I would hold another event there without hesitation.
