WOW! We are so impressed with The Bluff. We just celebrated our daughter's wedding on Friday evening and Jan and her staff went above and beyond to make this event beautiful. We had the Friday Night Special buffet and so many people commented on the food all night! There was a lot of food and it was delicious. What a feast! Jan and her friendly staff were attentive to every table all night. It was the perfect spot for our reception. Jan was on the ball and corresponded promptly whenever I had a question. Hiring The Bluff to host our guests was the best decision we made. I have more children to marry off and we will definitely be back! Excellent venue. A+ service and prices. Thanks, Jan!!

I had my wedding ceremony and reception at the Bluffs with 175 people . I could not be any happier with the services, and venue. The staff was amazing, and very flexible with any last minute changes I made. The food was amazing, tables were cleaned quickly. Everyone was so professional and made it so easy for my Husband and I. We got so many complements on how great the venue looked, and how things went so smoothly. I would recommend this venue to anyone.

We had our ceremony and reception at the bluff. It ws beautiful! It was supposed to be outside, however due to weather we moved everything inside, they were very accomodating. Jan was very nice to work with, as is their beer/wine provider, D. Shulers, great selection and prices. We had the mashed potato bar station, everyone loved it!

We had an amazing experience with the Bluff Banquet Center. Anything we wanted they made happen and any questions we had they were quick to respond. Our Reception was everything we had ever dreamed of and more. Everyone commented on how fabulous the food was and how courteous the wait staff was as well. If I had to do it over again I wouldn't have changed a thing.. except the weather, but that was completely out of their hands. Looking for a venue, you will not be disappointed here.

Jan was there from start to finish. I could not have asked for a better place to hold my reception. She was there from start to finish and cared about me like I was family. The staff was phenomenal. I received countless comments how the food was "the best wedding food I've EVER had." I usually HATE buffet style and it was amazing. They got 300 people thru the line in less than 10 minutes. AMAZING. The best wedding decision I made was to book here.
