Karen and Denise were fabulous hosts for our wedding reception! They made all of our planning so easy and walked us through each step. It was a completely worry-free process for us, which was so invaluable because we had a lot of other little details to plan outside of the reception venue. Almost everyone I talked to commented on how wonderful the food was and how beautiful the decorations were, all of which were prepared and setup by Karen and Denise. If you think the prices seem high, think again because you are receiving fabulous food, excellent service, and a worry-free experience for you and your guests! We would absolutely recommend this venue to anyone who asks us!

We were referred to Karen's by a friend who was going to have her reception there. She had so many good things to say about their service, so we were excited to meet with them regarding our reception. We met with Denise first, and she was very knowledgeable and very nice. The space was large, with ample room for dining, dancing, cake and bar service. We were expecting around 210 guests. What we really loved was that they took care of the decoration, cooked the food on site, and took care of the tear-down, all for a flat per-person rate that really cannot be beat anywhere. We had visited a few other full-service venues and found that they offered very similar services for double and triple the price. Karen, Denise and staff did an excellent job with our reception. The decor was beautiful, the food was delicious, and the staff was very attentive to our's, and our guests', needs. We would highly recommend Karen's Fireside to any couples who are looking for a venue that will provide top-notch service and not break the bank.

Karen and Denise were wonderful to work with! They were very accommodating to our requests. Their staff was efficient and helpful. We got many comments on what a lovely evening it was. Because they do all the set up and take down, it made our daughter's wedding weekend less stressful, especially since we were from out of town.

My now husband and I fell in love with this place the second we walked in. It has a cozy, home feeling to it that was so welcoming to us. Denise is fabulous at Karen's, she was my main contact throughout the year we worked with them. She always responded within the day of an email or text or call. What we loved most about Karen's is that everything was close together and it didn't feel like your guests were half a mile away. The staff that evening were courteous and respectful to all of our guests and the food was phenomenal! Would definitely recommend this venue to any friend or family, wonderful experience that made our wedding day much more special. Thank you Karen's!!

We had our ceremony and reception at this location. We were so happy. Denise was helpful but not pushy. The contract was clear. They were flexible when we had some last minute changes. They were helpful in coordinating in between vendors. The food was awesome and even the pickiest eaters were having seconds. The mac 'n cheese for the kids was a rave hit with the adults, the veggies were fresh, varied and crisp. The meat was tender and well seasoned. Karen is a hoot and helped everything run smoothly. The place looked lovely, they let us bring in some of our own decorations and put them up for us. They packed all the leftovers up for us as well. The reasonable price almost makes me feel guilty for such quality service. Everything was done for us set up, clean up etc. The price is all inclusive no hidden costs. I thank them for helping make it be a beautiful day, they did so many things that many venues do not. It was so much less stressful at this venue. Thanks

Karen's Fireside did a GREAT job at our reception. Denise was always very responsive to my emails and calls, and quickly answered any questions that I had. She was very knowledgeable and gave me great advice on all aspects of the reception, while working with me to make sure my vision came true. Everything was very organized and ran very smoothly during the day of the reception. Many of my guests complimented the delicious food and service of the staff. There were never lines at the bar, and my guests were very happy with the service. I also loved the decor of the venue, with all the candlelight it was very intimate and romantic, and Karen's designed and set up my centerpieces for me, so that was one less thing for me to worry about. You also pay per person and it was very reasonable pricing for all that they did for us, where you would pay for that extra level of service at other venues. Our reception was perfect, very low stress, and I am so grateful for all that Karen's staff did to make it happen! You cannot go wrong with Karen's!
