The food was AMAZING, the location was GORGEOUS, the staff was TOP NOTCH, and Mariani was INCREDIBLE to work with.
We held our dad's 75th birthday party and retirement party at Mariani's Venue in November. We had lots of room for the 100 guest in attendance. We actually could have hosted up to 300 people easily. The food was absolutely delicious and the atmosphere of the restaurant was gorgeous. The outside area is really awesome too! It has a little pond beside the restaurant, perfect background for gorgeous wedding/prom pictures. My dad was so excited and all the guest seemed truly pleased. The price for the venue was the best value I found anywhere and the cost including the food was cheaper than I could have done on my own. Thank you Mariani's Venue for being such great host! I'm going to recommend that our class reunions be held at this location simply because of the courteous hospitality we were shown. I also like the way you answered my questions about the facility as well.
Mariani's is a beautiful venue with a nice atmosphere. Our wedding was held there on October 15, 2016 and our guests are still raving about the food! Almost everyday since our event, either my husband or myself has had someone come and talk about how good the food was. My sister enjoyed the food so much that she has tried to imitate the beef tips and figure out how to make the delicious hush puppy appetizers! She begged me to call the owner to see if he would fill me in on the secret recipes. One of my coworkers comes into my office everyday and together, we relive our eating experience at the wedding reception. She suggested I talk to the owner to try and get him to pre-sell dinner tickets and maybe once a month he can host a dinner. Needless to say, the food was simply OUTSTANDING!!!! It's been over a month and my guests aren't talking about how beautiful the wedding was; they're talking about how delicious the food was!!!!! My husband and I are already discussing the idea of hosting a one year anniversary dinner party there. Thank you to the owners of Mariani's for the wonderful dining experience!!!!!
We used Mariani Wedding venue for my daughter's wedding on June 18/ 2016. The owners were very accommodating to all our requests. Our guests were impressed with the versatility of the indoor-outdoor space. We heard rave reviews about the food and the servers were very nice and efficient. I would highly recommend Mariani Wedding Venue!
Great Space! Good Food! Friendly and Helpful Staff! You won't be disappointed with this venue!
The Pembroke Senior High Class of 1974 held the 40th class reunion at Mariani's restaurant on December 13, 2014 with approximat4ely 100 guests. The venue was absolutely perfect for our class. The facility was decorated beautifully for the Christmas season. The meal was buffet and the food was exquisite. Service was top quality. Thanks to Mr. & Mrs. Mariani for ensuring a top shelf evening for our class Joseph Locklear, Class President.
Written by Kiersten Abernathy Brown (Member of the LHS class of 1993 Planning Committee) of Durham, North Carolina On Saturday, October 12th 2013 – Lumberton Senior High School’s Class of 1993 (of Lumberton, NC) held its 20-year class reunion “20 Years and Counting” celebration at Mariani’s Venue! The environment was elegant and was quite conducive to our class having a very fun, exciting (yet relaxing), and successful event! Many compliments were given about the food, the service, as well as the beauty and décor/design of the building and outside courtyard. This venue is definitely one of Robeson County’s “best kept secrets!” (for those who don’t know about it) as classmates returning to the area as well as hired staff for the event (coming from various parts of the United States) were very impressed with this venue!! The class of 1993 highly recommends this venue for other milestone class reunions as well as a myriad of other events!! Bring your DJ and photographer as we did and watch your event unfold! We had a blast! Many thanks to the Marianis! Hats off and many thanks again from the Lumberton Senior High School class of 1993 for helping to make our 20-year class reunion a very memorable and successful event!
Mr. & Mrs. Mariani, Never in my dreams did I expect such a successful event on February 16, 2013. My parent's (Mr. Billie & Edith Jones) 50th Wedding Anniversary Celebration brought about so many tears of joy for everyone in attendance. Thanks for the privilege of hosting this event @ Mariani's. This place is where dreams are made! Mariani's is breathtaking, with delicious food, great hospitality, romantic, clean, elegance with a beautiful waterfall, friendliness that goes a mile. John your food is the bomb! Thank You ALL so much!!! Sincerely, Brenda Johnson 3/16/2013
With plenty of room for dancing and seating for 300 guests inside, as well as a patio area outdoors that is also large, this is the perfect party venue. Last summer while looking for an affordable wedding venue, my daughter's then fiance told us Mariani’s in Pembroke. The beautiful full service restaurant and bar has space for an outdoor wedding, delicious food, and was beginning to specialize in events and weddings. And you don't just get a room: allowing us to book the entire restaurant, they CLOSED to the public for her reception. It was perfect. There are beautiful views from the balcony, great service, and hot food for the guests. Thank you so much for making the day wonderful!
My husband and I chose Mariani's as our reception venue as well as the spot for our rehearsal dinner the night before (yes, that's how good the food is, we wanted it two days in a row) and we loved it! We couldn't have found a better spot. The inside of the restaurant has a warm and intimate feel, but has plenty of space as well. We were able to seat over 200 people and still had space for a dance floor. Aside from the inside of the building having some amazing features (waterfall, balcony with two grand staircases, etc.) the outside is wonderful as well. Personally, the patio area is my favorite feature. I loved that we were able to put games and activities outside so people were encouraged, aside from the dancing, to stick around and have a great time. The food Mariani's supplied for the reception was the best I've ever had at a reception, and I've gotten tons of compliments on it since the big day. The staff members were all extremely nice and helpful throughout the planning process as well as the reception itself. I can't think of anything I would have changed about the reception. It was incredibly convenient to be able to utilize the in-house decorator as well. Everything about the day was of the highest standard; from the food, to the venue and grounds, to the decorations. I highly recommend Mariani's Restaurant for any events you have coming up in the future!
