Excellent Venue for a Wedding - An Eventective User

My daughter's wedding was here and we had exceptional service by the wait staff, bar service and the food was fantastic. We chose the Mexican buffet which was selected for our guests who were vegan and gluten free. We loved the set up and the decor. It was affordable! Highly recommend. The staff was easy to work with and answered the many questions we had leading up to the event. Thank you to the staff - it made the wedding day that much more fantastic!
