An absolute breathtaking location! Greg was great to work with and was flexible in making sure we had all we needed. Greg and his team day of mad us feel like rock stars. They made sure all flowed together. Greg was always available to questions and could answer everything. They took care of the bar so it was easy. The price also can't be beat! They are a wonderful team to work with and they made our day very special!

I cannot say enough about the Mahaffey Theater. The theater is a great alternative to having a waterfront venue without paying for a run of the mill beach hotel wedding. We held our wedding in the outdoor plaza, cocktail hour in the VIP room, and reception in the Grand Ball Room. Everyone there, Gregg, Jill and the bartenders, went above and beyond to make our day special. They even opened up the theater for us to take pictures which resulted in one of the most breathtaking photos we have. The price is significantly less than the Dali Museum located right next door, and the rooms have far better views. I would definitely recommend the Mahaffey Theater to any bride looking for a wedding venue.

The Mahaffey's Grand Ballroom is stunning! We fell in love with the venue right away and even did our ceremony on the lawn. I highly recommend this venue.

Our wedding at the Mahaffey Theater was absolutely stunning. The venue has the most unique view and the staff was incredibly cooperative. The only limitation on flexibility is that you vaguely have to work around the concert schedule (ie: we couldn't have the ceremony any later than 5PM). To me, it was a small price to pay. Additionally, we found the venue incredibly affordable. You can hire most any caterer but have to get your alcohol through the theater (again - the alcohol is pretty affordable compared to most venues). The Mahaffey Theater really provides a wow factor and will not disappoint!

I love the venue! So beautiful! The day of, everything was perfect. There were a few bumps along the way and Josh was willing to help to ensure everything turned out perfectly! It's great because you can bring in outside catering which saves a lot of money! I would definitely have it there all over again! LOVE LOVE LOVE MAHAFFEY!

Most beautiful venue. My guests were taken back by the beauty of the room, theater and area as a whole. I am very thankful for the staff and their flexibility with working with me. They did a great job on everything and were very curteous and kind! Loved my wedding day.

The cost to rent the Grand Ballroom and the Upper Atrium was a little expensive. The alcohol done through them is pretty comparative to other vendors and they included some free bottles of champagne for us. They also let us switch out the brand of vodka for a different one.
The event coordinator there is nice but VERY laid back. If you are a high-strung bride you will not like him.
The room itself was beautiful and a good size but a little cramped for 180 guests (eventhough it says it can hold 200 people).
Overall we were pretty happy with the venue.

It took forever to get a contract in the mail to sign. They reserve the date with your name but it isn't firm until you sign the contract so I was nervous. They got it to me less than 6 months before the event. You are required to do your alcohol through them which is a pain since it so expensive. They were flexible with me in letting the catering company do the soda/water/juice. They also let me come in the day before to set up the room, which was really nice. The bartender put out a tip jar, which they were not supposed to do, so we didn't tip her (as suggested by our wedding planner).

I loved the grand ballroom. I was beautiful on the outside and the inside as well. We had our cocktail hour in the main cocktail area with big windows that overlooked the water and pier. The reception room was great. We had about 175 guests and they fit perfectly without being too cramped and the room can fit 210. The event coordinator was a bit novice when it came to certain things and you had to get your alcohol from them which was a bit pricey but everyone said it was the most amazing location. With some foliage and lighting the room looked even more amazing and it was such a blank canvas that we were able to make it feel cozy!
