100% recommend this family run business. Wonderful to work with! They were very flexible when we had to make changes during Covid-19. The staff was very kind and polite. The food was delicious! Our guests are still talking about that evening.Sent on 10/18/2020

Fabulous Wedding! Cannot thank them enough!
Everyone at Williams on the Lake worked hard to make our day amazing. The food and decor were wonderful, and there were generous pours at our open bar. My guests loved the outdoor space - and I did too. Aly and her team worked hard to ensure we could have a wedding as close to our original vision during covid as possible... they were able to accommodate us as our original date and number of guests changed. I felt very confidant and secure with my choice of Williams on the Lake; they were major reason why our big day was stress-free and fun. I would highly recommend them to anyone - especially anyone looking for the perfect indoor/outdoor space.Sent on 08/19/2020

Andy and his team went above and beyond to make our day perfect. With Covid we weren’t sure if we can go through with our wedding this year. His team ensured our safety and made it perfect and intimate. I can never thank their team enough for being so catering to this unsure time. I would highly recommend this venue. A million times over!!!Sent on 07/23/2020

Beautiful modern facility with the water right there. Many very scenic backgrounds are available for excellent photo opportunities. Staff is very friendly and eager to please. Have facility for outdoor or indoor ceremony right there. An excellent venue for wedding or party with great food.
Williams on the Lake is a fantastic venue with an extraordinary staff. Cover Girlz gets to see these fine folks many times through the year. Aly, Jen, Rose and Mark all make you feel part of the Williams Family.
