Amazing scenery, amazing food! - An Eventective User from Clifton Park, NY

We got married here on Sunday, and it was fantastic. The site is on a beautiful, clear lake and surrounded by birch and pine trees. In order not to compete with that view, the pavilion is a simple, sort of Arts and Crafts wooden affair. It's quite large and roofed over, open on 3 sides. It has a wide deck on 3 sides and a gazebo on one corner, which is what we used for our ceremony. It was clean, and it was pretty. Let me tell you about the food. It would have come out exactly when promised, except we had a stroke of luck and were able to do pictures before the ceremony, which meant we were running ahead of schedule. We asked, and they were able to move up dinner service by half an hour! That is the kind of service we were told you simply could not expect from a wedding venue, but we got it from Ruth and Frank! We had many guests (and the bride) with food restrictions. Frank is not only a great cook; he knows those hidden ingredients off the top of his head and knows exactly what goes into each dish, down to the stocks and sauces. There was no cross-contamination. Everybody ate well. The food was amazing. The Steamship Round was on par with the meat you get at Century House, which is saying something. (The au jus was BETTER.) I could sit there and eat Frank's homemade Green Goddess dressing off a spoon, but probably shouldn't. ;) If you like nature or rustic settings, hearty delicious food, and a relaxed approach to wedding planning (not sloppy, just laid back and happy) then you definitely need to check this place out. I would particularly recommend it for people who wished they could have a barn or woods wedding, but find it logistically impossible. It is the perfect compromise, and once you see that lake and have a whiff of Frank's cooking, you will be convinced!
