The Minnesota Boat Club, managed by Mintahoe Catering, was the most unbelievable venue. The water, the cityscape behind us, and the evening was magical. I would highly recommend this space for anyone wanting to get married outside and still have that feel during the reception. Loved it!

The venue was perfect for our wedding. As soon as we toured the space, we knew this was where we wanted to get married. The venue requires that you use Minntahoe catering, and they were fantastic! We worked with Joy and she helped guide our planning and organize our vendors. We went back and forth with meal options as everything we tried at the tasting was delicious. We had to make a few adjustments here and there, but Joy was very responsive and flexible. On the day of the ceremony we had rain, but we were able to make some adjustments inside to make it work. Our day was perfect! Beautiful venue.

We LOVED our experience at the Boat Club. We worked with Joy, who was professional, on top of everything and super helpful when it came to making everything fit in our budget. We did the ceremony and reception there (for 70 guests) and it was fantastic! We were in the winter with the fire lit and cozy candles everywhere but it would be just as beautiful in the summer with the doors open and the balcony space. :)

Joy Baker is a FANTASTIC event planner, and she will make sure all of your details are in line before your event at The Boat House. She is absolutely wonderful. I felt confident and calm on the day of my wedding because I knew that Mintahoe (the caterers for The MN Boat Club) had the timeline and all of the details from Joy. This place is busy, so it is imperative to book early and spend some quality time with Joy hashing out a good plan. It is also expensive, but the interior is so stunning that you don't need to spend much on decor. The linens they provide are nice, and they also provide votives for the tables. There are several restrictions, though, which is why I didn't give them 5 stars.

The boat club is an amazing place to have a wedding. We lucked out and the weather cooperated perfectly. The venue is beautiful and the river and city backdrop are perfect. There is not a whole lot of flexibility since the venue is a historic building but well worth the little frustrations.

The boat club is a beautiful venue. Minnetahoe is pretty easy to work with but can sometimes be hard to reach. I liked the food options and prices. The only thing I did not like is that you must use Minntahoe for all food and alcohol. The alochol prices were extremely expensive and I did not do enough research into this before committing to this venue. Again Minntahoe is professional and nice to work with. The was good and the venue is absolutely stunning. I'm just writing this review to encourage people to do more research on pricing to make sure they can afford the venue they select!
