My husband and I had our ceremony and reception in the main ballroom at the Greysolon April 2014. The whole experience was AMAZING!!!

We worked with Kalysta and Jax and their attention to detail and knowledge was fabulous. They went above and beyond in all aspects. We are from the Twin Cities, so planning a wedding from a distance was a little concerning at first, but they were a huge help the entire time!

We could not have dreamed of a more perfect wedding and Greysolon was a huge part of making that dream come true!

Absolutely beautiful! I feel like I had the most perfect wedding and I could not have had that without the help of Jax, Kalysta, Kirsten, and Lexi. They were there with me throughout every aspect of the planning process and put me at ease the day of my wedding. They were constantly asking how everything was going and if I needed anything. If you are looking for a venue, nothing compares to Greysolon Ballroom!

Jax and Kallysta, along with the entire team at the Greysolon is absolutely outstanding. I cannot say enough about this team, or the beauty of this venue. My wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception were held here. We had our ceremony and reception in the Moorish Room, with our cocktail hour in the lobby. This place has such a beautiful, old-Hollywood, Great Gatsby type feel, which is exactly what I wanted. The service was unbelievable, white glove service with incredibly attentive and professional servers and bartenders. The food was delicious, so not "wedding food".

But the reason this venue gets such high marks are because of Jax and Kallysta. Jax will become an aunt to you while you plan your event, and truly you feel as though she is family. She is so warm, genuine, and caring. Kallysta is your big sister, calming your nerves and walking you through absolutely everything. I am quite a type A control freak, and I was comfortable to leave the details up to Kallysta and I knew it would be beautiful. Beautiful can't even begin to describe my experience.

My wedding day was the best day of my entire life, and I owe much of that to Jax, Kallysta, and the Greysolon staff and venue.

Had our wedding here in September of 2013. It was more than I had dreamed! The staff was great! I always think wedding food made in large amounts is gross, however, it was AMAZING!!! We had so many comments on the food and the venue from everybody. The staff was so willing to accommodate and work with us.

This venue made our wedding dream come true!! I would recommend this place for anyone. It might not be as affordable as others in Duluth, but the money is more than well spent!

The Greysolon Team is by far the best of the best! I never would have thought my dream wedding would be affordable or even possible until I met Jax and Kalysta who took their time on the phone with me and sent me emails full of information. Not only was it affordable but the whole team treated me like one of their own. They took care of everything down to all the little details. If I had any worries they reassured me. They really went above and beyond for me and I couldn't be more grateful. Lexi was in charge of my wedding day and she did an excellent job! She made sure everything was on schedule! Jax, Kalysta, and Lexi took control for us so that we could enjoy the whole process and day of having a wedding. They made it a mission for me not to stress but to be able to celebrate with everyone without a single worry. They even pulled us aside once in awhile to give us some moments together. My wedding really couldn't have been in better hands. I felt even better than Cinderella because I had this whole team as my fairy godmother. I was truly blessed to have my wedding at Greysolon. They are an amazing family! Everything was white glove service and the food was soooooooo delicious! My husband and I wanted to accommodate to all our guests, we wanted to have a wedding to celebrate with them, not just us, but to thank all of them for being in our lives and to show them how much they mean to us. I had so many guests tell me how the food was the best they've ever had at a wedding. It's been almost 6 months since our wedding and we still have guests complimenting the food and telling us how much fun they had. I am so grateful and happy that we were able to give our guests a wonderful celebration. Thank you thank you so much to the Greysolon family, I would have never had the wedding of my dreams without you guys! I still get excited when I think about my wedding day, and Greysolon has left me with so many wonderful memories.

Hands down the BEST place to get married in Duluth! Can't say enough positive things about Jax, Kalysta and the team at Greysolon Ballroom. As an out-of-state bride, they handled all the important details for us and all we had to basically do was show up. They deserve an Emmy for their high level of customer service and their planning process. Never did I dream the reception process would have been so easy. They know their stuff from start to finish and make you feel like a million bucks the entire time! Pair them with Sarah from #NSE- Northland Special Events (flower & decor), Eileen from #HowSweetItIsCakes, Tom R. from #SoundsUnlimited, and #EscapeLimosuines and you got yourself a perfect Duluth wedding!!

I can't even begin to explain how amazing the women at Greysolon are. Jax was a patient, calming, reassuring voice no matter when I called or what I called about. Then there's Kalysta, the woman who is in charge the day of your event. I arrived to the ballroom to find that everything was not only going exactly as I hoped, but She had set up our Candy Buffet for us since i had forgotten to inform her who would be doing it! I was blown away! She was there with a smile to answer all my questions that day, and had hot moist towel to wipe our hands off with after we cut the cake. The Ballroom itself is beautiful, grand and perfect for the classic romantic feel I was going for. I could go on and on but I say if you're looking for a venue in Duluth consider Greysolon!

I don't even know where to start. I never in my entrie life felt as special as I did and it was because of Greysolon. It all started with the 17 months I had to plan where I became very well acquainted with Jax and Kalysta. They are the most amazing event planners. Jax knows exactly what to say and when. She can multi-task like no other. She deserves a medal for dealing with me! I am pretty sure I am the only bride who has come in as many times as I did. Everytime I came in I was greeted with huge smiles and hugs. They never made me feel like I was a burden to them. Jax made me feel comfortable with every step of my big day. As for Kalysta, she is an amazing women. She was there the day of the wedding and she made sure everything was executed PERFECTLY. She speaks with such a calming voice so when she needed to go over a couple things with me hours before I walked down the aisle she made everything seem so easy and calm. She had another wedding she was over seeing in the room below ours and I never ever felt neglected. When we were announced into the ballroom we immediatley left to walk around to cut the cake and I will never forget the feeling when we walked out into the hallway. Kalysta had all her staff lining the hallway and it made us feel like royalty. It was so magical. All the staff were so friendly and great. They met the bridal party in the Fireside room with trays of appetizers(which were AWESOME). Every detail was executed to the way I wanted it. I had asked Kalysta the day before the wedding if she could put a few paper napkins only at my seat for the dinner. I thought she would think I was crazy, but I really hate cloth napkins. She didn't even laugh she just said "Of course!" So when I sat down at the reception for dinner there were 3 paper napkins, just for me! It was great! I honestly cannot stress enough how much we appreciate the staff at Greysolon. The food was also so amazing. Everyone was raving about it. It was perfectly done and tasted fantastic! They made my day amazing and I wouldn't change a single thing about any of it! They work their butts off at Greysolon for every single couple that comes in there. If I had one vendor to recommend over and over again, it would be Greysolon. They were the absolute icing on the cake. If you are looking for elegance, detail, and wonderful service-THIS IS YOUR PLACE!!!

If I had one vendor to recommend over and over again, it would be Greysolon. They were the absolute icing on the cake. If you are looking for elegance, detail, and wonderful service-THIS IS YOUR PLACE!!! Read less

The old Hotel Duluth...AMAZING!! John was great to work with, and they made everything so easy for us. There was another wedding the night before, so we were unable to set-up until the morning of the wedding. John let us bring everything in the night before so it would be ready when we came to set up on Saturday. The food was great and the service was prompt. Starting in November Blackwoods will be taking over the catering at the Greysolon, and although they have great food, I am hoping that they don't hike the prices too much. We got a great deal to have our wedding at one of the most beautiful venues in town.

We held our ceremony in the Lobby (and are one of the last weddings to be held there), and our reception in the Moorish Room. The place was fantastic. The old, classic building is a classy venue, and one of the most beautiful locations for a wedding that I've ever seen. The food was unbelievable. EVERY single guest commented on our menu selections, saying it didn't feel like catered wedding fare, but like high quality restaurant food. The caterer is on-site, nobody else was brought in. The staff made sure we were taken care of, from the early stages of planning over a year ago to Last Call on the night of our reception. The only issue we had was that getting a response on a question took a couple of days most times, however, we never felt like we were being pushed aside. Each wedding is handled as if it were the staff's own family, and they do everything within their power to make it amazing. Don't bother shopping around, just use Greysolon Plaza for your reception. The value is the best in Duluth, and the venue is by far the most amazing.

We had our reception here at the Moorish Room. The room is gorgeous and the staff were very friendly and great to work with. One downside is you have to cater with Blackwoods, which is only a downside because of prices. Their food is excellent, it's just on the high end and seems to be increasing each year.

Greysolon Ballroom was an OUTSTANDING venue to have for our wedding. I can't find enough good words to say about it. Jax the manager is OUTSTANDING to work with. This venue was literally like a dream come true place to hold my reception. It was great that they took care of other things too like catering and decorations. It's a full-service wedding venue. They are EXTREMELY responsive and flexible, AWLAYS making sure you are happy throughout the whole planning process. For the price, this is also one of the best vlaues you will find in Minnesota for a venue. GREAT pricing. I had so many genuine compliments form guest after our wedding I can't even count. Food was GREAT.Our guests had a WONDERFUL time!!!!!!!!

The only downside was during the reception some of the servers didn't have their black and white attire tucked in. Uniforms looked kind of sloppy. But that was the ONLY negative to our experience.

Greysolon Ballroom was an amazing venue to hold both our ceremony and reception. While there are two rooms at Greysolon, both our ceremony and reception took place in the upper ballroom. While it looks pricey at first glance, it isn't that much more expensive than other venues in the area (watch out for other places' hidden costs! Greysolon always spelt out every little cost detail and the differences aren't all that much!). For the price, Greysolon's service is second to none. Jax and Kalysta are wonderful planners and their experience is so vast that they know exactly what questions to ask to make your day wonderful and stress free. The staff was amazing; they set up for our ceremony and then "flipped" the ballroom for our dinner and reception. They turned the room over so fast and efficient I didn't even realize they had done it! We also had a social hour and appetizers which were wonderful! I actually had guests bribing the staff to bring them their own plate of appetizers! There was a small mix up with a keg of beer that we had ordered (the keg we requested was not ordered on time) and the manager offered to let us have a choice of kegs they had available and then gave our guests a champagne toast on the house for their mistake. Service here is second to none and guests were raving about how flawless everything was here. Can't recommend it enough.

Overall we were pretty happy with the Greysolon Ballroom. Kaylsta was awesome to work with during the planning stages!! All of our guests raved about the food. Our only complaint is they were so quick to clean the tables - people had not finished eating their meals. They also took full bottles of champagne off of the table that people were still planning to drink.

Absolutely stunning space for anyone who wants a unique, elegant, and historical atmosphere. Great dance floor and lots of room for guests. Great bar/lounge space a little separated from the action for some quiet if you want it.

The food was outstanding, and very competitively priced. Everything prepared from fresh, not frozen or canned, even the green beans almondine. Ample quantities, no one left hungry! The chicken and beef were cooked to perfection, hot and juicy. We brought our own dessert as they do not do cakes.

My experience with Greysolon's management was overall very positive. The booking was very simple, and had a reasonable cancellation policy, just in case. The people there do a wedding or similar events every weekend of the year, so they have it down to a science. It can be confusing for the customers, though, because we don't know all of their routines and policies. But they answered all my questions and we got it all figured out!

This venue is GORGEOUS! I absolutely fell in love with it! The only problems I had were at the wedding at the end of the night the event manager came up to me with another bill of $1000 for being "17 people over" on the count for food, they counted heads! Which is impossible when everyone is constantly moving! It almost ruined the whole experience!

Also, I strongly DO NOT recommend Blackwoods catering. It was disgusting. :(
