We found Jacques via a Google search and could not have been happier. Steve, the owner, was fair and reasonable when we were negotiating our contract and Aimee, the venue coordinator, was amazing from the second I reached out for an RFP to the very end of my reception. Our guests were amazed at the beautiful setting, friendly staff, and ease with which our entire day went off. We cannot say enough about this place - it's a hidden gem and we cannot give enough praise - they truly made our wedding day the best day ever.

I had my reception at Jacques on July 13 and I could not say enough positive things. Pattie made my life so easy the entire process. Anytime I had a question she got back to me very quickly and never made me feel like a pain. The day of the wedding the venue was set up perfectly and looked beautiful. Our food was delicious, the maitre'd was wonderful and the wait staff had everyone fed quickly and efficiently. I would absolutely recommend Jacques to anybody!

We recently had our wedding at Jacques and it was a fabulous experience. I could not recommend them strongly enough.

We actually chose Jacques as our venue after our previously chosen venue informed us that they would be closing before our wedding and therefore had to cancel our contract! Needless to say we were extremely panicked when we got that news, but Aimee and the staff at Jacques were fabulous to work with, and we immediately knew after speaking with them that we wanted to have our wedding there.

Because we had spent half a year planning our wedding around another venue, we were in a unique situation. Everyone at Jacques was wonderful in helping us rearrange and adapt our plans to fit a new setting. We had several guests with allergies and dietary restrictions. Our biggest concern was several family members with celiac disease, but they were able to accommodate gluten-free meals and worked with us and our guests to make sure that everyone was able to enjoy the event. The food and service was fantastic, and the staff made sure we had absolutely everything we needed.

There are only two things that I would suggest people keep in mind if using Jacques for an event: they do not set up ceremony decor if your are having a ceremony there, and if you have done your own centerpieces, they may not be able to set them up either depending on your design (as it can be difficult to be sure it is correct). This was only a slight snag for us as we had a morning wedding and it meant doing some complicated scheduling to get everything set up, but it didn't at all subtract from the amazing experience we had.

We had our wedding here on 8/26/16. Everything was amazing. The FOOD is out of this world. All of my guests are still raving about the New York Strip Steak, the chicken and waffles and the chicken wrapped in bacon! Aimee is amazing she worked with me every step of the way. She made sure that my husband and I actually ate our dinner. The only thing I was a little confused about was on rehearsal day, we kind of had to figure out how everyone was supposed to stand and walk on our own, but being in a bunch of weddings before, we figured it out! I would definitely recommend Jacques Reception Center for your wedding.

So for the most part our wedding was good, value was ok . We originally were set to have a outdoor wedding but we chose not to and they quickly changed the seating to inside. But the bad, with all our planning and such the cocktail hour was ok but myself an my bride requested certain things and never got any of them .. Also there was a sweet 16 next door and there DJ was so loud we could here it over ours. We specifically asked that if there was another venue booked an they said no. So we had kids and randome people walking into our wedding ..

My husband and I had our wedding at Jacques. The venue is beautiful, new and updated. The price we paid to get such a beautiful room, at such a beautiful updated venue was reasonable. The food was really great. One of the greatest sources of confusion for me, was that we had been told to drop off our wedding arch and this sort of thing before the wedding so that they could set it up. Well when my guest arrived before the wedding the office staff said they don't do decorating. My guests wound up setting things up, causing a lot of stress. It was disappointing to hear. The other thing was the women who they assigned to help us with the wedding didn't seem all the friendly.
