We were so excited to host our wedding here!Great location for a great price but the issues we faced were uncalled for. We were disappointed with the food first and foremost. Almost half of our guests complained about the quality. The chicken was too dry and tough for most to even cut with their knifes. The portions of the beef were small even for a child. When our guests asked for more they were given an even smaller piece.

We were told that they ran out of beer, wine and liquor a 1/2 hour before the bar was supposed to close, dancing was shut down almost a 1/2 hour early as well. We voiced our concerns to management and a sincere apology was not given. We left feeling more upset than before. A refund was given for the poor quality of the food but denied shutting the bar down early as well as our event and the blame was placed on us. The reception was decorated beautiful and those who were able to eat the food said their dinner was good. We were disappointed with the lack of compassion with how we felt our event ran. I honestly could not recommend this venue to anyone without letting them know the issues we had.

Working with the Mendel Center was wonderful. Tonya was very helpful and worked well with all of my specific wants and needs for my big day. We had our ceremony and reception at LMC Mendel Center, originally booking it because it would fit everyones needs but not exactly loving it, but as our wedding got closer and I saw everything fitting together and all of the plan falling into place I was very happy to have picked to have my wedding there. It ended up being a wonderful venue- just the right size and a wonderful atmosphere.
