    100% recommend

    If you are a bride/groom who want to ensure your guests have amazing food and drinks consider Union Street Public House! We hosted our wedding there 12/2021 upstairs and it could not have been a better experience. The buildings aesthetic with the rich wood and brick details speaks for itself. The upstairs has a private bar and bathrooms for guests with coatrack. Staff were amazing. Cheryl, the events manager made the process so smooth. She has significant experience in wedding planning and takes an interest in the couples wants/needs and works with them. Staff go above and beyond to ensure the couple and their guests have an amazing experience. There was staff assigned to the couple and as soon as a drink got low it was instantly refilled. The whole process was straight forward and painless. If we ever need to host a large event again, we would surely come here.

    Wishing you both the very best!

    So pleased.

    Working with Cheryl from day one was so easy. My husband and I had always dreamed of having a "dinner party" style wedding, and after enquiring with multiple downtown restaurants, USPH took the cake.
    In terms of price, they quoted MUCH lower than other restaurants in the area. In terms of value, we feel as if we got what we paid for ten fold.
    We chose the Grill Room for our 46 person wedding, and the ambience was perfect. This room is gorgeous as it is, but don't underestimate its ability to be transformed. Our wedding felt dream like.
    Cheryl answered my hundreds of emails while planning, always responding promptly. On the day of our wedding, she was amazing, overseeing all decorating in conjunction with our florist, and attending to all the details. She was essentially our day-of-coordinator, keeping us on schedule and putting out little fires so that we could enjoy ourselves. Her value is immeasurable!
    The food was amazing and their ability to handle dietary restrictions was fantastic. Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten-free, Poultry allergies. Our guests ran the gamut and Cheryl never blinked an eye. We had a kids table and we were able to request a special kids' menu with USPH's delicious french fries, keeping our kids very happy all night long.
    In closing, the wedding was perfect and USPH played the biggest role in making this the happiest day of our lives.

    Union Street Public House's reply:

    Thanks Jamie for your very kind and generous words we are so glad you, Pawel, your family & friends enjoyed the celebration!

    We thank you for letting us be a part of it!

    Amazing Food and Service

    We held our 46 person wedding reception in the Regatta Room and attached Whiskey Bar, and could not be happier with how everything turned out. Leading up to the wedding, Katie and Cheryl were incredibly helpful and responsive. We decided to go with the Passed Appetizers, the Gold drink package, and a two course meal with strawberry goat cheese salad for everyone and an option between steak, chicken, and crab cakes. The only thing that rivaled the amazing food (the crab cakes are to die for), was the excellent service. Our servers and bar tenders were quick, spot on, and incredibly kind. They worked tirelessly all night and I can safely say everyone had an amazing time as a result. The space also looked absolutely gorgeous with our decorations, and just how we imagined. I am so, so grateful we chose Union Street Public House for our wedding day!
