I went to a event this past weekend omg the food was not great. children running every were in the hall. They stand at the door at 12 and start pushing people out the door. If your looking for a good hall for your wedding don't go here and there is No parking !! Not a classy place at all should have went to McDonald at least the food would have been better .

Meridian is a beautiful place to host any type of party or business meeting. The rooms are sized adequately and each room is designed beautifully. The friendly and helpful staff and great round out this banquet hall to be well worth the money you are going to pay. They were one of the cheaper banquet halls in the area and I was so glad we went with them.

On August 24, 2013, I had my dream wedding at Meridian Banquets. If I could give Meridian Banquets a thousand stars, I would! I can probably write a book on how amazing and wonderful Meridian Banquets is! My husband and I walked into the venue and we absolutely loved the high ceilings. A few moments later when we met Tina and her amazing mother, we knew this was the place we wanted to have our wedding. This is a true family business and my parents, my husband and I felt like we were part of the family.
Our primary point of contact was Tina. Tina patiently spent hours with me, going through every detail, and on my wedding day everything exceeded my expectations! Meridian went over and above their duties to make sure that we have my dream wedding. An example of how accommodating they are, I wanted to slightly change the cream of chicken soup by adding some diced carrots, rice and garnishing it with parsley, and my request was easily fulfilled. I wanted the chicken to be served family style, so that the sauce from the chicken does not mix with the au jus from the New York strip steak, and again Meridian was happy to accommodate my request. Another must for Meridian, the pool! Ask Tina about it! You will not be disappointed, it is a must have!
We are so happy that we booked our wedding with Meridian and highly recommend it! The food was amazing (the steaks melted in your mouth, and that is not easy to achieve with 400 steaks), the bar had all of the items which I had specifically requested (like Ciroc), the bartenders and the wait staff were very friendly and accommodating, the sweet table (personally set up by Tina’s mom) was so beautiful, and everything was absolutely perfect, just the way I envisioned it.
Words can not express my gratitude for everything that Tina, her mom and the entire Meridian staff did. It was such a pleasure working with them and I am so thankful to them for making my dreams come true! I could not have asked for a more perfect wedding!

I love the Meridian! We had our wedding shower there along with our reception. Tina and her mom were amazing! We got so many compliments on the food and everyone knows that is one of the most important parts! The room was amazing and our head table staff member was great! She made sure we had everything we needed and also got the whole head table a round of drinks. The only small problem I had was one bartender said they didn't have one brand of liquor I was drinking all night. I told him well the guy over there has it so how are you gonna tell me that you don't have it? He also didn't pour my guest a drink until he got a tip. I am so glad that we went with the Meridian and I recommend this venue if you can get it. They get booked quick! The day that we had our wedding, they also had two other wedding. It was a packed house and rumor is that guest from the wedding next door crashed ours! I mean who doesn't love a Greek wedding! They did everything we asked for and went above and beyond our exceptions. We plan on booking other events with them!

Meridian banquets went above and beyond for our wedding. Our room looked so beautiful and everyone that we worked with there was amazing. Our wedding coordinator Joyce Murray was so awesome to work with there. She accommodated all of our needs and we couldn't have asked for a better person to work with. Thank you to everyone at meridian who made our reception so special!

I saw MB in a Knot magazine and decided to check it out. First and only place I ended up seeing. It used to be an old movie theatre, so the rooms are huge. The lobby is beautiful and they have a brand new fountain. My mom and I met with Joyce. She was so sweet... like a second mom. We walked around and saw all of the rooms. We wanted to have the ceremony and reception there, but in different rooms. The ceremony room is large, but kind of ugly. We ended up having Elegant Event Lighting drape and light the room. The reception rooms are all large and the room we chose (E) holds around 180. The open bar is top shelf! The man and I hadn't set a specific date yet, but we knew we wanted early June. When Joyce and I sat down to discuss dates, I casually threw out June 1 as an option. Surprisingly, both rooms were available! I put a temporary hold on the rooms and called the man that night (he was currently stationed in North Carolina). He said sure, so I went back a few days later to put down a deposit.

Went for our tasting in January and the food was FANTASTIC! The portions are HUGE! We went with the combo plate (prime rib and athenian chicken) with asparagus and garlic mashed potatoes. Our cake and sweet table came with our package, as well as top shelf open bar.

The ceremony and reception went beautifully! Everyone was so nice and helpful. All of my guests were thrilled. It was well priced and a great value!

Joyce and the Meridian staff totally blew us away. First, you absolutely cannot beat the price for the 5 star quality you receive. The food was to die for, the decor done perfectly (you give them the stuff with instructions and they set it up for you), the staff friendly and prompt, and the service divine. I would not have wanted my ceremony anywhere else! We got a ton of compliments on how wonderful the reception looked, how great the food was, and how nice the staff was.

LOVE LOVE LOVED MERIDIAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We held our wedding reception in their Hall B on December 30th, 2012 --- and they truly created a winter wonderland and festive reception decor for us. It was so elegant, and additional decorations were placed to make the ballroom sparkle.

We felt like a king and queen walking into the ballroom as everyone stood up to applaud us. We were told by many of our friends and family that THIS wedding was the BEST and most BEAUTIFUL wedding they've ever been too!

I would definitely hold another event at Meridian, because of their professionalism, their exceeding all of our expectations, and their insane value and quality of services.

LOVED this vendor. I wish I could put 10 stars for each!!!

EVERYONE was absolutely blow away by the food, service, and decor the Meridian provided. The place is gorgeous, the bartender Toni and the entire service staff was AMAZINGLY on-the-ball. In fact, even before I noticed a hiccup in any plans I had (as the bride), they fixed it. NOTHING went wrong and everyone told me to just prepare myself because something always goes wrong... NOTHING did. I whole-heartedly recommend this venue. We had our ceremony and reception there... they were incredibly accommodating, very artistic with their views of the rooms and flowers, they even went the extra mile to make the place beautiful and make sure everyone was happy. I was notified promptly of everything going on and everyone was VERY helpful. I couldn't have had a more beautiful day! WE LOVE THEM!!!

Maria was our head staff memember for the bridal table and I can not thank her enough for everything she did to keep the wedding party having a great time! Even the bridal sweet was set up and she was very tentative to me and my girls and the parents. The place is gorgeous, the bartenders and the entire service staff never skipped a beat!

We were extremely happy with our choice to go with the Meridian. The room was beautiful, the staff were wonderful to work with, and the food was wonderful. They were very flexible and accomodating throughout the whole process. The only thing we were not happy about was the way the manager (Bill) handled himself the night of the wedding when our guests broke their glasses onto the dance floor. He was rude and unprofessional with how he handled himself, but he was definitley the exception. We were overall very happy with our choice to go with the Meridian.
