Truly a Seamless Experience!

I wanted to take a moment to extend a sincere thank you to you and your entire staff for the amazing job everybody did at our event. We have heard some glowing reviews from our guests concerning the food, the venue and the event itself. Everybody at Crane Bay was beyond kind and helpful. Anything that we asked (big or small) for was done without question or pause. It was truly a seamless experience. I would book an event again at Crane Bay in a heartbeat.

The Space Was Perfect for Our Event!

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for helping to make our Membership Meeting so special! The space was perfect for our event, and our members loved the food, parking run of the house, and funky background music. I couldn’t have asked for a more responsive planning and onsite presence. The banquet staff were fantastic. Chanel was incredible. I just can’t say enough great things about The Crane Bay.

Phenomenal from Start to Finish

Amy Keemer was phenomenal to work with from start to finish! When we walked in to tour for our wedding, we knew this was the place. The atmosphere is so fun with the lighted columns. The food was delicious and our guests loved that we did a “non traditional” sit down meal. We opted for sliders and mac n’ cheese, our favorite foods! We were able to drop off our decor early in the week and pick up the Monday after our wedding so we didn’t feel rushed to pick up. The wait staff was wonderful and really took care of my husband and I and our parent tables! I highly recommend The Crane Bay for anyone looking to host an event!

The Food Was Superb!!

I just wanted to thank everyone that helped make Annie and Joe’s wedding/reception such a happy, fun event. We and the bride and groom cannot stop talking about it… The staff at Crane Bay was fantastic, so helpful, professional, friendly, accommodating, just made us feel like we were the only ones to have a reception there. The set up was better than I imagined. The food was superb!! We could not be happier with everything. Thanks again for a great time.
