The quality of their food really sets them apart from other caterers we tried and that is what attracted us to them. Little did we know that the service would be great as well. They were very helpful in the in the planning stages and the reception went off without a hitch and without me having to worry about anything, which is exactly what I wanted on my wedding day. Plus, every time I mentioned who our caterers where to different vendors, they all responded very positively, so they clearly have a good reputation within the wedding industry. You are in good hands with Hendri's.

Our daughter's wedding reception in July, 2014 was held at Hendri's Banquet Center. The décor of the venue is very beautiful and elegant, yet definitely has a very comfortable old-world charm. Dan and Steve Sulz, the owners, are very professional, yet very nice and easy to deal with in all aspects of the reception. Mara Sulz is very artistic, and was very helpful in all the planning stages. The wedding reception details were handled wonderfully, and eliminated much worry and stress for us. Our dinner menu was absolutely delicious and Hendri's offers many selections from which to choose. Their staff was very courteous, efficient and always accommodating to all the guests' needs. The service was excellent all evening, especially from their staff serving drinks at the beautiful antique bar. The décor and table settings were outstanding and added to the wonderful ambience of a fun-filled, joyous reception enjoyed by our guests. Our son-in-law is an Air Force Captain, and many military and out-of-town guests were in attendance. All were quite impressed with Hendri's , and we are still receiving many compliments from them. We have attended many events at Hendri's, including having our son's wedding rehearsal dinner held there, and each time the word "quality" comes to mind. We would highly recommend Hendri's for any special event or celebration, as their reputation is very well known and highly respected in the St. Louis area.

I was a pretty disorganized planner, and they were infinitely patient, had helpful suggestions, and were very flexible. And our guests raved about the food. But what I most want to say about them was that they made our wedding delightful for me by providing amazing service. The staff was fun to work with, went out of their way to be helpful. I did not have to stress about anything. Every detail was taken care of so that I got to enjoy it all worry free. That may have been the best wedding gift we got. Thank you, Hendri's.

We were so happy to find Hendri's! We just had our 9/20 wedding at Hendri's and everything was perfect! Dan and his team were easy to work with, very professional, and exuded a very calm, we-do-this-all-the-time-so-don't-worry presence. Dan and his team worked to accommodate all of my ideas and provided helpful suggestions throughout the planning process.

The venue itself is amazing - striking with it's dark wood decor, black/white dance floor, full wood bar, and beautiful fireplace. The food is prepared on-site and seemed to be completely customizable. Best yet - it was delicious. We got RAVE reviews over the food!

The staff was super helpful, friendly and polite. Everyone knew my name and my drink preference...and that wasn't just because I was the bride. This happened all night for most of our guests.

Hendri's is a hidden gem and I highly recommend it to any bride for a beautiful reception.

Our Daughter's Wedding Reception - from start to finish - was a very pleasant experience. We met Dan, who walked us through the space, talked about the party and the possibilities. He made us feel very comfortable and that he had everything under control! I interviewed a number of venues and Hendri's stood out. The value for your money is top notch and I don't really know how they do it! The food is prepared right there and can be tailored to your tastes. We received 100% compliments on the food and the space. We even had one family member who told us he had NEVER had good reception food and had low expectations. He made a special effort to tell us he was eating his words - AND going back for seconds! Bartenders and servers (Maria) were the best - they knew our names and our preferences that evening! We were even allowed to pick up all our decorations and odds and ends that Monday which made leaving the party so much easier.

I would highly recommend Hendri's to anyone hosting any kind of party and would not hesitate to use them again myself! Thank you Hendri's for a wonderful evening.

Planning a wedding is stressful but planning a wedding from CA when both the parents of the bride and the bride are out of state is a real stressor! Dan and Mara are professionals in their trade and were fabulous to work with constantly fielding our myraid of questions. They offered great suggestions on the DJ, schedule, decorating and the food. Our daughter's event was everything she wanted, a very intimate, candlelight setting. (195 guests). The food was absolutely delicious, the service amazing and Mara and staff worked tirelessly to make it a memorable evening. We have received many compliments on the food, the indoor setting and service. If we had to do this over again there is nothing we would change.

My son and new daughter in law recently had their reception at Hendri's. The food is absolutely fabulous. The curb appeal of the front of the hall is not the best but once you get inside, the interior is so nice! Some of the unique touches are the fireplace, the corner sofa area & the 3 high top tables on the dance floor. All of these were used throughout the evening & commented on by guests! We met with Dan at the beginning; he is very easy to work with & very nice. He also had suggestions in the hall planning that we would not have thought of & used. Everything from start to finish was organized & followed through like we wanted. I will say on the negative side that communication varies. In phone calls with planning, we were not always able to speak to Dan, and things that were promised to be emailed were not quickly received, usually requiring a 2nd request. Myself, the bride & hall decorators met with Maura about 4 times at our request to talk about different areas or ideas. After the first meeting, we requested to meet with Dan but had to meet with Maura when we got there. Although very professional, Maura shows no emotion, does not smile, & comes across not interested. This was at the meetings before the wedding, during the set up, & throughout the reception (she was also one of the bartenders). I was asked 1 time during the evening how things were going by a gentleman from the back, not one comment from Maura or any of the other women serving or cleaning up. We paid for the extra hour of reception time and there were a lot of guests still there at the end. We left as soon as we could corral them out. Maura and her staff stood at the end of the bar waiting, not saying anything, while we packed up to leave. She did not ask if everything went ok, if we had a great time, thanks or goodbye! This was noticed by not only me, but about 15 other guests. I would only talk to Dan and request him to be there that night. Other than Maura, perfect night!

We can't say enough on the quality of food and service. I'd highly recommend Hendri's for all your catering needs. One example of the extra touch - they offered to take the left overs to a homeless shelter and made the extra effort to drop off at the food just after the event was over.

LOCATION OF CEREMONY & RECEPTION: My husband and I got married in December. Because most of our guests were out of town, and it was likely that the weather would be cold, we decided to have our ceremony and reception in one location. Hendri's has one banquet room. That being said, we had our ceremony and reception in one room with the guests already seated at their tables. I was extremely nervous about this setup, but to our surprise we received numerous positive remarks from our guests. They absolutely loved being in one location and not having to deal with the hassle of finding their way to the reception. We only had about 150 guests and I wouldn't go over 160.
FOOD: Now on to the food. We had heard that Hendri's had good food, but we did not taste test beforehand. When choosing the menu for the evening, there were many items to pick from. Dan was very flexible and accommodated our preferences. Although I could not eat that night (because of my nerves going crazy), everyone LOVED the food. We chose the roast beef and chicken with white wine and capers for the meat. Our sides were, roasted red potatoes and sweet potatoes and broccoli, along with their house salad. We could not have been more pleased with the food. We did not have alcohol at our wedding so I cannot comment on the bar. However, we had soft drinks and the bar service was great.

STAFF AT HENDRI'S: Dan was wonderful to work with throughout the whole process. There were times in which I was frustrated with him, just because of uncertainties he had; He just could not give me a straight up answer sometimes, but other than that it was a great experience. Mara was the one we worked with during our rehearsal and the wedding day and she was very accommodating to our needs. They also provided the flatware, glasses, table clothes, plates, and some of the table decorations. It was great to have a venue that provided the location, some decorations, and catering because it just made things so much easie
