Simply Perfect

Everything was simply perfect, PERFECT!! My parents couldn’t stop saying enough compliments about the venue and the venue staff. It was decorated absolutely beautifully and literally EVERY single person on staff at Crane Bay was absolutely amazing!!! Thank you so much for not only ensuring Kevin and I were happy but for also taking such amazing care of my parents.

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.

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.
