Description of service

This location was a fire hall. The price included a lot of things. It included all of the linens for the tables and the center pieces for the tables. It was top shelf liquor for 5 hours and all soda, water, coffee and tea. The cocktail hour consisted of a variety hoers d'overs from your basic pigs in a blanket to seafood to steak on a stick. The main meal was served buffet style. I had a choice of 3 entrees, four sides and 2 salads. they substituted one of the salads for a soup. I also had a dessert bar with a few dessert including cakes and cookies. The wedding cake was also included. I got a discount because I did not use the house DJ.

Review of Service

The service was great. They had my date readily available. They were very accommodating with the salad substitution. All the food was served hot and it was delicious. The wedding cake was beautiful and the all the desserts were good


Make sure that you get a caterer that you are comfortable with. When comparing prices make sure you are getting similar things. There is a price difference between sit downs and buffet style meals.
