Choose The White Dog Bistro for a Southern Manor style wedding. The Bistro unites artistry, simplicity and elegance with beautiful fireplaces set in a classic 1840′s southern mansion. Windows and glass-paned doors along the outside wall allow natural light to stream-in; then if you’re looking for a more upbeat and causal vibe you have the option of adjourning to either the indoor/outdoor Key West inspired bar or spacious outdoor courtyard for dancing or you can start here with your outdoor cocktail hour all served on silver trays butler-style. This is an area where we can accommodate your additional guests as well. All areas provide a sense of warmth, serenity and comfort for your wedding reception.
Choose Pavilion at the Tabernacle for a Rustic yet Regal barn/pavilion style wedding. This 7 acre property is tucked away in a beautiful wooded enclave with 7,000 sq ft under-roof and a full stage for bands; all that plus its on the Virginia historic registry too. The all wood interior has soaring 20ft cathedral ceilings. Large and spacious but still very much in-tune with nature. You can have your ceremony or reception in this beautiful salute to the outdoors. Your wedding here is all about getting back to nature, organic elements with a little bohemian flair will set the scene for your romance. Think cafe lights, a farm to table menu and beautiful wild flowers. If you love vintage elements then this is your dream location.

White Dog Bistro is a must try! Best service and food!
I can't say enough about White Dog Bistro. I am a wedding planner and we had my sister's wedding reception there as it was a small amount of people. From my original conversation with Walter I knew it was going to be an awesome night. I never expected the service to be as top notch as it was. Amanda was overly communicative helping ensure everything from the time we arrived until we left was taken care of. We had a couple of people who didn't order appetizers and at the last minute we had to add them on and Amanda and team made it appear so effortlessly to have them added. Not once during our night did they ever seemed it was frustrating or a challenge for them.Sent on 04/25/2021
Now let's talk about the amazing menu or food they provided. Not one of our guests said anything but raving reviews of how good the food was from apps to Salads and entree. The portions are big so you definitely won't go home hungry. So when you are looking for your next evening out or special gathering contact White Dog Bistro as you want be disappointed. Top notch service and food for sure! Thank you White Dog for all you did to help my sister and husband have an incredible night!

I had my wedding at the White Dog Bistro in August 2018 and it was simply a dream come true for us. The venue space has so much character and charm. It was simple and just what my husband an I were looking for. It was an easy choice after viewing multiple venues, that we would choose this one. The owners, Walter and Amanda, helped make my vision come true. Walter is an amazing chef and our food was AMAZING! Food quality was very important to us and our guests raved about it! Our guests also enjoyed the specialty cocktails and wine/beer selection The White Dog had to offer. Having our wedding at a restaurant just made things easier because they already have everything on premises, which made things much more simple for planning purposes. There is an upstairs area with separate rooms, one for the guys and the other for the girls, to get ready in. The staff who worked our wedding, were so professional and hospitable.. I cannot say enough about how great the service is. We also had our rehearsal and rehearsal dinner here, which went perfect. We had a private room to ourselves, which we were able to decorate and bring in floral arrangements for. Walter and Amanda have such great relationships with vendors in the area and were able to make recommendations for us, such as Cindy's Cakery for our cake (!!!). The added final touch from the White Dog was Walter and Amanda gave us a gift certificate to come back on our one year anniversary to celebrate. This was truly an amazing experience for us and I am so glad we choose The White Dog as our venue. We look forward to returning for our anniversary.Sent on 08/29/2018

It is hard to adequately describe how much we love The White Dog Bistro. My husbands family has had a house in Mathews for decades and for the last few years, since my first visit, we always make a point to eat at the White Dog- the food is amazing. When it came to planning our wedding in Mathews, we live in CA, there was only one option in our mind for the reception. Mac and JC are the absolute best. They are were so communicative during every step of the process and I truly feel like our day would not have been as it was without their help. The food was above and beyond as usual and the house is beautiful. Honestly, they are so accommodating and flexible and the nicest people you will meet. We are so appreciative of them and our experience that I would recommend them to everyone.Sent on 06/19/2017
