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!

Everything about Karen's is great! I am from Omaha, but have moved away for grad school and planning a wedding 1,000 miles away from home was difficult, but Karen's made so many of the details so easy for me to get figured out in one motion! Many of the additional items you typically buy for a wedding reception are included at Karen's in the baseline price if you don't want to spend the extra money on them. I took advantage of this when planning our reception at Karen's and used their greeting card cage, some of their centerpiece items, their toasting flutes, and their cake cutting utensils….among other items, such as candles, napkins, tablecloths, beverage ware, etc. that sometimes do not come included with venues. Denise at Karen's was so easy to get ahold of and very accommodating. The staff is pretty flexible when it comes to your decor and special requests as well….they really seem to have a vested interest in making sure our day went exactly how we wanted it to, which was so nice!
On top of the ease of planning and flexibility, the venue itself was great and the food was amazing! You could see everyone in the building at once and could clearly hear what our DJ was saying no matter where you were. The ambience was fantastic and the service was great! The roast beef and chicken marsala were absolutely delicious and I got lots of compliments about the green bean amondine and the mac-n-cheese (we went with it last minute on a whim and our guests absolutely loved it-highly recommend)! Additionally, there was no shortage of food and we had leftovers for our gift opening the next day. I cannot thank Denise and the other staff members at Karen's for making our wedding reception unforgettable for us and for everyone who attended! I highly recommend this venue to any couple looking to have a great reception!

I just had my reception here and it was fantastic! Denise was a pleasure to work with and her wedding experience really showed. They have a lot of different decor to choose from and worked with me to set up the hall even better then what I could've done myself (and I'm pretty crafty). No need to worry about tables, chairs and napkins, they have it all and in a wide variety of colors . The food was AMAZING!! Our guests were very appreciative and continued to comment on how impressed they were with the menu.The night was PERFECT! One of our guests has Parkinson's and a staff member was nice enough to help him through the line and carry his plate to his table for him and throughout the night, they made sure that we were well taken care of!! Karen herself even made an appearance to personally congratulate us.Thank you so much for your hospitality, we will never forget what an amazing evening we had!

Denise and Karen provided a wonderful venue for my wedding reception. It was a dream come true for my husband and me. I gave Karen's Fireside 5 stars because that was the highest I could give them. The quality of the food was superb!
I chose Karen's Fireside from the website. I will admit everything they say on their website is true. There are no hidden fees, everything is included and it was exactly what I expected.
My family and friends had a wonderful time and they loved Karen's. I would recommend it to anyone and everyone!!1
