I simply cannot say enough good things about Niko's Landing! We held both our wedding ceremony and reception indoors at Niko's. Everything was beautiful and they moved seamlessly between the ceremony and reception. Our guests gave us MANY compliments about how smoothly and quickly it all went. You do have to use Niko's as the caterer when you book there, but the food was all excellent and the tasting they hosted earlier in the year was sooo helpful!

Everyone I worked with, especially Shannon, was very helpful and did everything they could to help us out. We preferred to serve sangria, opposed to a house wine, and she willingly found us one even though they didn't normally do that. They were willing to be very flexible with our rehearsal time also since it fell on a holiday. They even found and returned items accidentally left behind after the wedding. I am so happy we chose to go through Niko's - I wouldn't have changed anything!!

Niko's did a fabulous job for our wedding and reception! Shannon was more than helpful during the planning process and on the big day. The staff was quick and efficient in getting the ceremony spaced turned over for dinner, and then again cleaned up for dancing. The location was convenient, neat, and beautiful. I wouldn't have changed anything about it and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a ceremony and reception space or just a reception venue.

We recently had our reception at Niko's Landing in Comstock, MI and I cannot say a bad thing about our experience! Dennis and Shannon were very reliable and always there to answer our questions. The value was great as well. I feel like we got our money worth and then some. Amazing food, great bar service, and an all around well kept, clean, and beautiful venue. It was great to not have to worry about our reception while planning our wedding. I had full trust in Niko's and they'll came through. Thanks for making our special day one to remember forever!

We loved loved loved working with Niko's Landing. They answered every question we had before and after the wedding. The worked with us on every detail, they lit our candles before the reception started for us and the next day they had everything on a table easy for us to pack up. The food was amazing. We had pepper crusted sirloin and foccia chicken. Everyone raved about the food. I know people say being the bride and groom you do not get to enjoy dinner but we did, we made sure we did. Everyone had smiles on their face and was friendly and helpful. I would get married again and again and still have the same reception location (to the same man of course).

They were amazing. Whenever we had a question regarding the ceremony or the reception, Nikos responding so quickly and did whatever they could to make it happen. The venue is absolutely beautiful, barely had to decorate it, food was wonderful, and all of our guests raved about both the ceremony and reception!

My husband and I had our ceremony outside next to Nikos in the grassy area and it was very nice. The only thing I wish is that Nikos would do some landscaping around the building and in the back. It would make it that much more desirable.

Niko's Landing Banquet Center responded with the following comments:

Thank you so much for the great review!! We absolutely loved serving you guys and making sure that everything went super smooth. Just to let everyone know, as of 10/14, we are having a major landscaping project started that will be completed in 2 phases. We are Re-doing the whole front of our facility in phase 1, and we will be starting phase 2 around the back in the spring of 2014. We are so looking forward to this upgrade and it will enhance our facility and surroundings tremendously and will add that much more for all of our clients events!

Our wedding was August 17, 2013 and we knew the second we walked in to look at Niko's that this was where we wanted our reception. I was extremely impressed when Dennis recognizing me at a bridal expo months after meeting us only one time. Means a lot that we were not treated like a check book. Shannon was extremely professional at all of the meetings for food and finalizing all of the details of our day! The staff was friendly and made sure we were doing good. If there were any problems or concerns they were dealt with immediately. We were very happy with everything and thank Niko's

The venue is well kept, clean and decorated beautifully. A very romantic venue for weddings. All workers were dressed professionally, polite and helpful to all guests. The price was very reasonable for the quality of food, drinks and services provided. The wedding coordinator, Shannon, was extremely pleasant to work with and also very helpful. She guided us thru the rehearsal and wedding. Dennis, the owner was on hand to help us with selections of food and drink. He also offered great selections of both. Our wedding and reception went off without any issues and I attribute that to the great service provided by the staff at Niko's Landing.

Niko's Landing blew everyone else out of the water in terms of availability, amenities, value, you name it! Dennis was so enthusiastic about our wedding and eager to do whatever it took to make our day joyful and easy. He happily made even the most 'unreasonable' requests possible, from fitting nearly 350 people in there, to having a hotdog bar at the end of the night. He was incredibly hands-on and was there, the entire six hours of our reception, working (not standing there in a suit but actually in the kitchen, WORKING) alongside all the other employees and servers, making sure our day went perfectly. He was without question the best vendor I worked with. Our guests are still talking about how beautiful and classy our reception was, and it is all thanks to the wonderful staff at Niko's Landing. What a hidden gem!

Wow! Niko's Landing was absolutely incredible!! The food was delicious, Dennis and his staff were extremely helpful, so nice, and worked hard to make the evening all that I had ever dreamed of -- I couldn't have asked for a better wedding reception. On another note, not only do they have to work to make the bride and groom happy, but for me, they had to show my guests a good time. Did I mention that "great party" is all I've heard from our guests?! Everyone loved the venue, the service, the food, and the party. Dennis & Niko's ... THANK YOU FOR BEING AMAZING!!!

I was married 8/18/08, my reception was held at Niko's Landing in kalamazoo, Mi. This is an AMAZING banquet center. It is so beautiful and romantic. The decor/lighting sets the mood and the outside (outback) view with the lake is amazing! I love this place...I would recommend it to anyone. The entire staff is nice, patient, professional, dependable and helpful. The food is GREAT!! They really do a good job w/ the meals. The bar is FULLY LOADED--lol! I seriously was a bridezilla but every question or email I sent with comments or questions--I received a response right back. This is a great place...we will be using Niko's landing for any party we throw. FYI: We just threw my dad a 65th birthday at Niko's Landing last March! Kudo's to Dennis and his team... :)

Nikos Landing is such a pretty reception location. The whole backside of the hall is windows overlooking the river and a park. There's a small patio/walkway along the building that is a great backdrop for photography. Dennis, the consultant is so friendly and professional. The food was exceptional. The stuffed mushrooms and shrimp cocktail is a must for appetizers. Everyone kept asking what the champagne was because it tasted so good. Nikos was great about letting me stop in if I needed to in the months prior to finalize my decorating plans. My decorator was very happy working with Nikos in getting the time she needed the night before to set everything up. Nikos Landing is a great place to have a reception and there are alot of hotel choices only 5 minutes away.

Niko's did such a fabulous job for our wedding. I searched for a long time to find the right reception hall at the right value. Niko's provides excellent service, a beautiful atmosphere, great staff, and wonderful food (wish they had more options for vegetarian/vegan guests though)...and you can do it without paying an arm and a leg like some fancy ballrooms and hotels make you do. The view of the Kalamazoo River makes the area quite lively and spectacular. Shannon was great to work with and responsive to all of our concerns and questions. She was very organized as well. We loved having our event at Niko's, and our families and friends had an absolute blast!

I loved working with Niko's Landing because they were so flexible and willing to cater to whatever needs we had. The General Manager was incredibly helpful with the entire process. He was always very quick to respond to my emails (and believe me, I sent a lot of emails!) and always answered my questions thoroughly. The location of Niko's is great as well because it is situated alongside the Kalamazoo River and you have a view of the river from the head table. We had a guest count of about 150 and had plenty of room for guests to mingle amongst the tables. The other great bonus to using Niko's is that they have a lot of decorations already included in the room rental cost. There is tulle w/ white lights draped throughout the room and they provide centerpiece mirrors and bowls at no additional cost. I found this very helpful in saving money on decorations. We simply had floating candles and flower blooms and the table setting looked fantastic even though it was so simple. I loved the overall ambiance of our reception.

The other nice thing about Niko's Landing is that there are no extra charges or hidden fees. There is one room rental fee and the menu fee which includes your appetizers, salad, bread, dinner, and cake-cutting fee. We were very pleased that they didn't surprise us with any extra charges. I had several family members come up to me and tell me how good the food was and how happy they were with the reception. We had a great experience with Niko's and would gladly recommend them to others.

Nikos Landing was a great facility for the most part. Dennis was extremely willing to work with us to make our day perfect. There were a few things that could have been improved though. The food was fantastic but could have been left out longer, the buffet time seemed a bit short and my guests did comment on that. Also, some of the workers seemed less willing to be flexible compared to Dennis. Overall the facility was great, but there's room for improvement.
