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.
