The venue itself is amazing... huge room with floor to ceiling windows, wood floors, views out over the Milwaukee river and Pere Marquette Park, just to name a few. And the staff is wonderful too... our wedding coordinator was super helpful and was always prompt in getting back to me when I had questions. The night of the wedding, the GM was there to make sure that everything was perfect, and the wait staff was very professional. Everyone knew what they were doing and it made our day so easy and stress-free!

Our daughter's wedding reception was held at the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts. It was the perfect venue for a wedding reception. It is elegant, great location and the food was excellent. Lynn and the entire staff were exceptional to work with! I would highly recommend them.

The Marcus Center and Ovation Catering surpassed my expectations for a beautiful, memorable wedding reception. They were always available to answer questions and give suggestions, they had food tastings and wine tastings...I knew exactly what I was going to get! Our guests could not have been more impressed and it is a wedding they will be talking about for a long time to come.

This location was beautiful for our wedding and took very good care of our guests. All e-mails and phone calls before the event were answered promptly, they were so flexible and helped guide us in decisions as we had never planned a wedding before. They helped with both set up and take down, we weren't left to fend for ourselves, and the night itself was run quite well. We were very thrilled with their services and would repeat the night all over again if we could!

The Marcus Center for the Performing Arts was amazing. Our event manager, Lynn, was very responsive, flexible and a joy to work with. We have received SO many compliments from our guests that the food was outstanding and that it was 'the best wedding food' they have ever had. The venue is gorgeous and the lighting is perfect. I would highly, highly recommend using the PAC - our expectations were exceeded!!

If you're looking for an affordable venue for a large crowd in downtown Milwaukee, the Marcus Center is a great choice. The room is lovely and view from the ballroom is gorgeous. You are limited to using their caterer-- Sazama's, but I have to say, they did an excellent job.

My major complaint is with the bathrooms, they need to be updated--they are the type you'd find at a high school with metal stalls. Not exactly the glamourous feel I was looking for at my wedding. Also, they seemed to also be used by theatre goers during the wedding, which was kind of odd. Aside from that, though, the Marcus Center was great.
