The woman that I worked with at Glen Oak was extremely accommodating and helpful. She supported us every step of the way!

If it wasn't for the food being delicious and the venue being very beautiful - scenery wise I would NOT recommned this Venue. My main problem was with the wedding coordinator Janet Cimenilli. At first she seemed great - responding to emails quickly, really seeming like she cared about you and your wedding. However, as soon as she received the last payment - two days prior to the wedding at the rehearsal, it was like she was already moved onto the next person she was working with. We met with her at the rehearsal to discuss how everything would go. She claimed she was paying attention, however the day of the wedding, my centerpieces were all wrong. She did nothing to help correct it, even after she asked me if she did something wrong and I told her that she did. So my girls and I had to spend 30 mintues changing it to the right way. She was incredibly rude to my parents, who came in earlier that day to drop off the cake and pies. She refused to refrigerate any of the pies or cake. She had no idea of how my ceremony was to go. I had to actually tell the girls when to walk out and cue the DJ for my music. These are things that a bride should NOT have to deal with or worry about on her wedding day! Lastly, Glen Oak MAKES you have 125 mininum. Fine no big deal, except the fact that if you do not meet 125 they refuse to give you a few take home dinners. A friend of mine who is in the catering business addressed this with Janet and in the end Janet gave us "6 dinners" however when Janet came to tell me this she was incredibly rude about it making it a point to say that "we never do this". Just incredibly unprofessional about how she went about the whole day. So if you do end up using Glen Oak be mindful that you should have everything written down about specific instructions but still know that there will be mistakes made and you will most likely have to fix them yourself.

Glen Oak provided a beautiful backdrop for what was basically a perfect day. The facility was wonderful, the staff attentive and the food delicious. The price was very competitive with the local facilities. Janet was a dream to work with. She was very quick to return my calls and answer my questions, she was very accommodating with my needs and helped to put me at ease when there were problems. She checked in with me several times during the night to make sure that I was ok. I had a great experience here, the availability of the outdoor patio for dancing and relaxing was the cherry on top of a wonderful venue. Very easy to work with!

I recently had my wedding reception at Glen Oak (8/2013) and worked with Janet. She was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was very organized, always responded in a timely manner, accommodated all my needs and even did damage control when I had an unexpected issue arise. All of my guest commented on how beautiful the venue was and how delicious the food tasted!!! We had the salmon, which was a huge filet, and the combination plate (chkn &stk). The servers were also absolutely fabulous, by making sure my guest and I were completely satisfied. Theres nothing more I could have asked for than great food and great service! I am so happy we picked Glen Oak and we will definitely use them for our next big event!

Words cannot even describe how amazing our wedding was at Glen Oak! Everything went perfect and we owe it all to Janet and her staff. Janet made it a point to greet us when we arrived and made sure she said goodnight. She was extremely caring and catered to our needs. The staff were amazing and always asked if we needed anything. They packed up all our centerpieces neatly and everything else that we needed to take. We were so grateful. Every one of our guests told us how amazing the food was and how they had a great time!! I can't wait to have another event here and would highly recommend this venue. Thank you so much Janet and staff!! Thanks for adding to our special day!!!!

Couldn't have been more pleased with Glen Oak!!! We had originally planned our ceremony outside by the gazebo, however, on the day of our wedding day it was downpouring. Janet was extremely wonderful to work with and went above and beyond to make our wedding experience exceptional. She arranged our ceremony on the outside patio with the covered pavillion, coordinated with wedding agent to have the right chair covers considering they couldn't arrange the outdoor folding chairs on the patio and decorated the patio beautifully for our unity sand ceremony. During the entire ceremony we completely forgot that we had our ceremony on the patio because it was just that amazing!The food was excellent and the staff went above and beyond to assist us with anything we needed throughout the night. I recall one staff member who was so kind so bring back my dinner plate to the head table so that I didn't spill anything on my gown. She was so sweet! All our guests ranted and raved about how beautiful the venue and delicious the food was. I couldn't have asked for a better venue, staff and banquet manager! Thank you all for making our wedding a day to remember for a lifetime! I told Janet when she asked me how everything was if we could do it all over again at Glen Oak. lol! I highly recommend this place!!!

We were not at all happy with Glen Oak. They were VERY rigid in their dealings. They removed the flowers from the gazebo before the pictures had been taken. They do not provide storage for the items that must be brought into a wedding hall the day before except for a limited space in an office that is waay to small. They did not accomodate any sort of outside of the box thinking. The next day, no one was available to allow us to retrieve items. You had to provide your OWN heaters for the outdoor patio. They are curt and not flexible in any manner. Take your money and go elsewhere!
