This is a beautiful venue for a wedding and reception. They provide many additional services as well. I was even able to order my stationary (invites/thank yous) and cake. My DJ and florist were very familiar with them which helped with the coordination of the even. MacRay's staff was very attentive and helpful through the planning process right up to the last minute of our celebration.

We had a wonderful wedding and shower at MacRay. Worked with Lisa & Fergy and they were both amazing! Very responsive to my calls and email through out the whole planning process!
We received so may compliments on the venue, the food, and the cakes! The pastry chief is wonderful!! I will be buying cakes from them for birthdays because she was that good!
Everything was 1st class and my wedding was just as I imagined it would be. Truly a dream come true!!
I would recommend this place to anyone that wants a breath taking wedding with views & wedding pictures to die for! This isn't just a "hall" type of wedding. If your looking for unique and classy this is your place! 5 STARS Wish I could do it all over again

I have two separate reviews:

Bridal Shower - We had our Bridal shower at Mac & Rays at the end of February. Everyone was really easy to work with and more than happy to help! Guests commented on how beautiful everything was and how lovely the room was. We choose the Salad with all the fruit and chicken on it for the guests, and it was Amazing!!! Fantastic salad! Fresh and tasty! Plus the pricing was excellent!

Wedding Cake - Shelley, the pastry chef from Mac & Rays, made our wedding cake for us. My DH knew her because in college he use to be a banquette server there. She has the most AMAZING cakes I have ever tasted. Her decorating is also beautiful! I still have guests telling me the cake was so good they had more than one piece! :) Her prices were very affordable as well, you would expect to pay a lot more money for such a delicious, moist cake!

I'm sad to read that other brides did not have that good of an experience here.
My wedding was October 27, 2007. We had about 225 people for our wedding upstairs. We rented out the entire upstairs with the exception of the restaurant.
In the beginning we thought we would be working with Fergie but ended up working with Angela. At first it was a little hard to work with her, and I think that had to do with the fact that she does these events all the time, and being a first time bride I never had (I had no idea what needed to be done). I tend to procrastinate sometimes too. With that being said, after speaking with her more we were able to develop a good working relationship. I think she is very knowledgeable in the business and a good representative to work with.

My only complaint was our first tasting - it was not good. I was so disappointed I was afraid that after I set my heart on getting married and having my reception here I was going to have to find a new venue. But Angela came through for us, reassuring us that if we came back in for another tasting we would have a far better experience.....and we did! I think it could have been a misunderstanding in what we were really looking for. We came back for the second tasting and it was AMAZING! We had a hazelnut chicken and filet for the main course. The food at during our wedding was so good!
The day of our wedding was running behind (because of me, not the hall) and Angela was right there to get me where I needed to be.
Right before dinner Mac & Ray's was still even more accomodating. I forgot to mention that one of my bridesmaid's and another guest sitting at one of the tables did not eat red meat. I mentioned it to one of the girls who was attending our head table and she made sure the filet did not come out on the plates for them.
We paid for the premium bar which was fully stocked and the bartenders were right on for getting our guests their drinks.
My husband and I along with our families and friends had a great time. Everyone complimented us on how great the wedding, the food, the bar and the entertainment was!
