We had our wedding reception there 10.11.2014 and could not be more pleased. Pam assisted from beginning [invitations and planning that included the d.j., Neils on Wheels] all the way to the very end when we scooted out the door. The location was beautifully scenic, decorated beyond our expectations and the staff were fun people, they went above and beyond. The food was exceptional, hot, served with smiles and VERY tasty.Not one complaint from anyone with the exception that it had to end. We would and will recommend Country Lakes Party Center; actually already have; to anyone that is in need of such a venue. Bette and John

We did not heed the reviews. Consequently, we paid $3000 to get out of the contract. We were not even allowed to have wedding ceremony there for the $3000. The cooperativeness changed after the no refund date. Watch out! Every service we requested was much higher than what we could contract with the same vendor they used. There is a service charge for all outside vendors (and EVERYTHING) is considered an outside vendor except food and cake. Get you food tasting up front. Do not allow them to put it off until after the no refund date. After the no refund date, we were offered one plate of the chicken to be shared by 3 for $90. The other meats were not available for tasting.

I have worked many weddings as a wedding coordinator for 30+ yrs...the air conditioning didn't work properly, the dinner portions were ridiculous and the meat was fatty/thru still ran out of food even though we paid for 200 and only had about 180 people actually attend. Pam, the manager, was present all evening. She was rude to both the guests and the parents of the couple. They staff carried over half of the cake provided by the family to the kitchen (personally witnessed this, as they were cutting it to allegedly serve it). Three types of cake were brought to the venue, only two were served and the third cake "disappeared". Dishes were not cleared between courses, water was not provided. Pam was not willing to work with us to come up with a reasonable plan to decorate, offered only three hour time frame in the middle of the day even though I made it clear I do this on the side and had a four hour drive to the facility. Most non-customer service venue I have ever worked with. Made me wonder who Pam thought was paying for the event? Most venues bend over backward for those who are nice - we were very nice to them but did not receive the same respect back.

Never do business with this venue especially if Joyce is the manager working on your event. Beautiful venue, but there is no repect for the customer and our dinner was ruined. Joyce the banquet manager was extremely rude to me throught the whole process and was rude to my guests at the reception. She is extremely difficult to work with and I had thought we would be working with Pam who is in all the good reviews but Pam QUIT! There is not one good thing I can say about the service either. Dinner was an hour late and the mother of the groom's table which also included grandparents and our flower girls was served LAST! They did not follow the color coding for who got what dish and people were continuously getting the wrong dish. We had to have our photographer stay over an extra hour and people were still eating during our first dance at 900pm! Joyce was no where to be found during this issue and threw her son-in-law in to talk to us who we had met for the first time that night. Guests were calling me after the wedding saying that Joyce had denied guests coffee at dinner (which was included in our package) and were rudely confronted by her at various points of the night. We were sold on the locatiion of this venue and its country-like feel and the great reviews about Pam, but with Pam not there anymore and without new management, this place is going down the drain fast and it is not worth risking the money on this venue. Our DJ and photographer were even shocked by how poor the service was for a place that has been in this business so long.

Most rude and obnoxious service I have ever had the misfortune of receiving. The owner Joyce was rude to nearly every guest at the reception. She locked the doors and refused guests entry without them begging to be let in. This included the parents and grandparents and pastor of the bride and groom. Dinner was two hours behind schedule and the tables with the parents, grandparents and pastor of the bride and groom were the last to be served. Guests had to beg for a cup of coffee and then it was served one cup per table at a time. If you want your event to be a pleasant experience look anywhere else. Joyce is impossible to work with and has no regard for customer service!!!!

Much like the other two reviews on this site, we also had an awful experience doing business with Joyce at Country Lakes. She was sweet as pie until we signed our contract and gave her money for the venue, and then she turned to be completely rude and difficult. She was very rude to our guests and I even had people make comments to me after the wedding about her which is very embarrassing. Our dinner was also served at least an hour late which gave us little time to dance and enjoy the rest of the night. She was rude to the DJ and photographer and even yelled at the DJ to turn down the music (which wasn't even loud) at one point. No wonder why I could barely hear the music on our wedding night! We couldn't even use the restroom at the end of the night when the reception ended - she literally shoved us out the door and turned off all the lights outside while we waited for our transportation to pick us up. If I had to do it all over again I would have never had our wedding there. The only good thing was that the venue itself was beautiful and the setup for our reception looked great. Otherwise, I would not recommend this venue.

Country Lakes was not our first choice...but like the old adage states, everything happens for a reason, and finding Country Lakes as our wedding venue was simply meant to be. After our selected venue was unable to be used, we quickly shifted gears and started what we thought we we a long and difficult process of finding a new venue with mere weeks left before our wedding. Our first and last stop was at County Lakes. We knew instantly that this venue, and it's coordinator Pam, were just what we needed to have a perfect wedding.
Our wedding went off without a hitch. Not only did Pam and her staff decorate the hall to our exact specifications, they made the hall come alive. Our guests were in awe of everything, the decorations, the food, everything! Our guests were well feed, vegetarians happily munching on super yummy foods they could enjoy (normally vegetarians eat cheese and salads at weddings), and as the food service wound down, our guests were able to drink and dance the night away!
Pam left no detail unattended. Not only did she ensure we had the wedding of our dreams, she literally stepped out of her normal zone to help us achieve everything we wanted! We've already begun making plans to host another party at Country Lakes. We will recommend this venue, and it's wonderful service, to anyone!

My daughter had her wedding/reception at Country Lakes, on 10/01/2011. I can not Thank, Pam Parker, enough. She was very helpful and answered all our questions and requests. She helped with all the details of the reception, even did the cake display. The staff was great, and very professional. We had to switch from the gazebo to veranda, due to mother nature, but it went smoothly. I would highly recomend Country Lakes. Our guests are still raving about the wedding and the food. Thank You, again
