McMenamins made it so easy to have a wedding there. They asked me all the questions I would have asked. The servers were so professional and even ran after my new husband to make sure he got a stamp for his passport. They really went above and beyond my expectations.Sent on 12/27/2019

We can't recommend getting married at McMenamins Cornelius Pass Roadhouse enough! We got married in the octagonal barn and it was exactly like we envisioned. The barn is beautiful and the food and drinks were incredible. It ended up being very affordable and made the wedding planning process so easy. The food, drinks, service, tables, linens are all taken care of in house and they even have a sound system that you can use. The entire property is beautiful and there were so many great places to take photos before our ceremony.Sent on 02/22/2020

Octagonal Barn is an amazing wedding venue
We had our wedding at Cornelius Pass Roadhouse in the Octagonal Barn. It was the only venue we looked at and we knew right away that we wanted to have our wedding there. My husband and I are big fans of McMenamins, especially CPR, the grounds are so beautiful and the feel and ambience there is just perfect. We booked about 10 months in advance for a mid-October wedding. Our event planner was Keiko, and she was wonderful to work with throughout the whole planning process. She had all the answers to our many questions and had lots of helpful suggestions, was patient and easy to talk to. They were very accommodating about a couple of requests we had regarding timing and which hours the bar would be open. On the day of our wedding, all of the tables and things were set up inside the barn prior to us getting access at noon. The barn is very charming and rustic so you do not need many decorations. The McMenamins staff was very helpful and great to work with throughout the evening. It was so great to have the food and bar all coordinated by McMenamins, so much less stress and one of the big reasons we knew we wanted to go with McMenamins as a venue. They also let you and your guests take any leftover food, which we had a ton of left over. There was an issue with billing where we were charged more than expected for the bar, but McMenamins resolved it quickly and professionally. We ended up having about 55 people and were worried that the space in the barn would feel underfilled and sparse, but that was not the case at all - it seemed like a great amount of space for a group of that size - though you could definitely fit lots more.Sent on 12/11/2019
The only disappointing thing was that between the time we booked, and the time we were finally allowed to lock in our menu choices, the price per head on our menu selection increased by $7 per head. We asked if it was possible to have the original price honored but were told it was not. This caused our total spent on entrees to increase by over $400, which meant we had to cut back on our original plan for appetizers. We also ended up going a couple hundred dollars over on our food/bar minimum, which could have potentially been avoided if we had not had to pay the additional $400+ for the entrees. So that was a bit of a bummer. But overall everything was amazing, they really made our wedding an expertly coordinated and unforgettable experience, and I would absolutely recommend McMenamins/CPR to anyone looking for a charming and beautiful wedding venue.

CPR is the place to go for a wedding! I got so many compliments about how beautiful the venue was. We brought a few finishing touches for decorations, but the Octagonal barn at CPR is basically all you need for a cute reception! Plus the food and bar was amazing!!! Would recommend!Sent on 10/01/2019

Ideal Intimate Wedding Venue
This venue is perfect for intimate weddings. You get a venue, food, and drink, all included in a single price point. The food is amazing and drinks won't run dry.
The space is intimate and rustic with exceptional acoustics (we ended up doing karaoke and everyone sounded amazing). The process leading up to the event is simple and straight forward. The venue provides everything for a barebones wedding that you can easily embellish for your own needs.
There is a beautiful garden or a trellised walkway that are perfect for photos.
Planning on having kids at your wedding? Large yard games are provided which give both adults and kids a fun activity outside of the toasting and dancing. The venue gives you time for your walk and vows and then gives you 5 hours to party. BUT if you want to party later, you can always move outside of the venue to the restaurant or cigar and whiskey bar on the same property.
This is very much the perfect wedding venue with everything you could possibly need all in one neat package.Sent on 08/06/2019

My husband and I got married at McMenamins Cornelius Pass Roadhouse, in the Octagonal Barn, and they did an amazing job! We booked our event over a year ahead of time, and they were super helpful in providing information to help us make our decision and assist with the entire planning process. Our original wedding coordinator left two months before our wedding, which added some stress, but they did a great job transitioning us to a different coordinator. We worked with Adam for the last two months, and he was really great. He was dealing with twice the work load, and was new to our wedding, but still answered all our questions and made sure everything was how we wanted it.Sent on 11/14/2017
The wedding day went perfectly, and all the services McMenamins provided really helped to reduce our stress on the day of. Having a wedding in November is a real gamble with weather, but they were flexible and let us decide indoor vs. outdoors on the day of. Katie was responsible for setting us up, and had set up inside because there was a 50/50 chance of rain. We decided to gamble and move outside and she was very helpful and willing to change things up to give us what we wanted. All of our tables and linens were prepared perfectly upon our arrival. We also rented the house for the day and had boxed lunched provided, and the lunches were amazing! All the food and drinks were orchestrated wonderfully and tasted even better! We had many picky guests (including myself) or dietary restrictions, and McMenamins was very accommodating through everything. The whole day went very smoothly and a lot of that had to do with how well prepared McMenamins was. They are also extremely affordable for all the services they provided. We loved that the food cost came out of what we paid for the space. We were able to buy tons of food without worrying about overspending, and we got to keep the leftovers!
I would not hesitate to recommend McMenamins to anyone; they know how to host an amazing event!

We had our wedding ceremony in the Wedding Grove and the reception in the Octagonal Barn and Barnyard. CPR was very flexible with us as we weren't sure if it was going to rain or not, so we decided the day of where the ceremony was going to be. They were able to accommodate all of our wants and needs last minute, for one example getting a tent last minute just in case it decided to rain. The food was amazing and the servers and bartenders were very friendly and helpful. All of our guests couldn't stop complimenting us on our wedding and the location. Mcmenamin's does everything for you - set-up/tear-down, food, beverages, all wait staff - so it is very easy to have an event there - very stress free. Our wedding could not have been more perfect!Sent on 10/25/2017

Our wedding at McMenamins Cornelius Pass Roadhouse was amazing. We held our ceremony in their Wedding Grove, and our reception in the Imbrie Meadow. The entire day was amazing! The staff was gracious in helping our guests get from ceremony to reception, and made sure that there was water available for our ceremony (It was sunny and in the 80's). They had lawn games available to rent that were a HUGE hit! The food was amazing. I had heard that one of the odd things about planning a wedding at McMenamins was that you aren't able to taste test the food ahead of time, but I have not seen a bad review of the food provided on the day of the event. This was true for us, our food was amazingly delicious, and they even made arrangements for my vegan bridesmaid. The venue is gorgeous and requires very little in the way of decorations, and the pricing includes so much as part of it. Having our wedding with them was definitely one of the best decisions we made for our special day.Sent on 10/10/2017

For the folks who are planning a wedding without the stress, this is the venue for you. Our minimalistic goals for our wedding tied in so nicely with the naturally beautiful space that is McMenamins Cornelius Pass Roadhouse. Working with our wedding coordinator there felt like working with a close friend. The food, beverages, and overall experience were everything that we wanted and more. I cannot recommend this venue and their wonderful staff enough.Sent on 09/17/2017

We had our wedding at the Octagonal Barn and I could not be more happy with how everything turned out. The staff was amazing the day of the event and everything ran smoothly. Leading up to our wedding, Wiley (the sales rep) was AMAZING! I had soooo many questions and was constantly emailing him. He always responded promptly and professionally. I would recommend this location to anyone looking for an intimate and rustic wedding space. It was everything we wanted and more!Sent on 05/31/2017

We had a wedding reception at the Octagonal Barn at the Roadhouse. What a great space for a casual, but nice event! The food was terrific and the staff was always attentive and helpful. We had a DJ so the dance floor was nice to have. We had about 65 guests for dinner and dancing - wonderful casual atmosphere in a unique setting! We had many compliments from guests on the venue and the food, etc. Just a great evening!Sent on 01/31/2017

We had our wedding and reception in the barn. Our tables were set up reception style (round tables fr the ceremony and reception). We had 100 guests and it felt plenty roomy! It was the perfect space. It has a lot of charm on it's own so I didn't feel like I needed a tone of decor to make it beautiful. The staff during the event were very nice and always smiling. there was plenty of room on the dance floor and we used their sound system which was great! In this particular space there was a food and beverage minimum which at the time (December 2016) was $4,000 plus a 21% tip. We did not go over this amount. We only hosted beer and wine, although liquor was available. One thing that is really nice is you don't have to start serving your hosted beverages before the wedding but the wedding party can still go get a drink from the bar and bring it over. I think this helped us stay within our goal.Sent on 12/29/2016

We had the best experience ever, here at McMenamins. Would do it all over again if we could!Sent on 12/30/2016
Ramona · Married on 09/30/2016
McMenamins was a wonderful venue at an affordable price. For what we paid for the entire package which includes the food, event space and an open bar, it was equal to what other venues in the area were charging for the event space alone! The food was delicious (so many options!), the venue was beautiful and everyone loved the beer options too! Only small downside is lack of parking. This place is very popular on a weekend evening anyway - so lots of guests may need to park across the street (thankfully the Fred Meyer across the street allows this). Save money by by having your wedding on a weekday or not in the summer months!Sent on 03/07/2017

Love the venue and them!Sent on 10/11/2016
When looking to book our wedding we both wanted something that was all in 1; Venue, catering, staff, bar, linens and rentals for anything bonus we might want. Our experience previously with McMenamins was just burgers, non coors light and tater tots.
WOW .. they blew us away.
Planning was a breeze, we met a few times and then communicated via email. We were able to view the property at different times of the day to really get a feel for what our special day would be like. The food was amazing!! We hadn't been able to taste any in advance, but our McMenamins Coordinator (Wiley) knew what he was talking about in his suggestions. Meatballs were / are awesome (left overs in freezer). We were allowed to have coors light + their own drafts, wine and cider. That was big for us, might not seem that way but when you have a heavy coors light crowd, you want to make them happy!
Day of the event went very smooth, we had staff in place to support us and they had personality!!
So excited that we were able to have our special day at a venue that we can continue to visit.

This space (we used the Imbrie Meadow) was well worth its value. We were able to have enough space under the tent with our 90 guests to walk around without feelings crowded. The garden space outside the tent was great for the games they had for use to use and allowed for some great photos.Sent on 07/18/2016

We booked the Imbrie Hall tent for our late October wedding. We planned the wedding in less than four months, and as such this necessitated that our vendors be flexible and accommodating of last minute changes. We were impressed with the professionalism and responsiveness of the staff at CPR, in particular Adam and our catering crew on the day of our wedding. They went above and beyond on several aspects of our rental and this provided us the ease of mind to enjoy our wedding. We got lucky with the weather (and the weather turned bad the very next day) but all of our guests remarked about the excellent food, the grounds, and the catering staff. We researched many venues and found this one to be the best value for our needs. I also appreciate how white chairs, plates, and linens of your color choice are included. My husband remarked how he felt the service provided by the caterers was really caring and professional. Highly recommend giving them a call.Sent on 12/26/2015

The venue was great! We hired RobProPhoto Wedding Photographer and you can view the photos from our wedding at the McMenamins Cornelius Pass Roadhouse, it will give you a good idea of the venue and the types of photo opportunities, granted you have a good photographer like we did.

The minimum cost for this venue was the same price as others that offered the venue alone. With McMenamins they include the venue when you spend a minimum amount on food and drink. If that wasn't enough to seal the deal, the venue itself is one of the most beautiful settings we have seen. The moment we stepped onto the property we knew this was the place for us. The octagonal barn was the perfect setting that made our dream wedding come to life. The staff was easy to work with and accommodating to modifications we requested to the menu and table placement (the day of, I might add). A must visit if you're scouting for your wedding!Sent on 07/13/2015

This Venue is so beautiful and such an amazing value. They provide all of the catering and the set up and take down. It was amazing. The venue is so pretty, you need minimal decorations. I highly recommend this venue for a wedding, no matter what size.Sent on 03/31/2015

McMenamins really knows how to do weddings. They bundle everything so well that I don't know how anyone gets married anywhere else! CPR is a smaller site, too, so it felt more private than at some of their larger properties. We happened to be the only wedding on site that day, which was great. The coordinators were amazingly responsive leading up to the wedding day, and the staff on the day of were super flexible and helpful while we were setting up our decorations. The bartenders made sure there was never a long line, which our guests loved. It's a beautiful venue too, which makes it hard to imagine going anywhere else. We had pizza as our meal, and it was actually really good - we had lots of guests mention the good food afterward. I would highly recommend this McMenamins venue.Sent on 09/29/2014
