Hidden within the heart of Mequon lies a sanctuary, a sparkling new facility nestled in a natural setting that, like most everything at The River Club of Mequon, was created with romance and magic in mind for the most cherished times of our lives. Formerly known as Mequon Country Club, the old clubhouse has been scrapped–every square foot of it–and transformed into the very definition of contemporary elegance. The spectacular 9,200 sq. ft. Grand Ballroom offers the latest in programmable theme lighting with state of the art audio-visual support, a combination matched only by the stunning vistas that overlook an artfully lit countryside — first by the receding sun, then by design after it sets.

A huge outdoor balcony deck further enhances a sensory experience that justifies The River Club of Mequon’s standing as a dream destination for any important reception. A championship golf course, six tennis courts and two pools beckon those so inclined on your special day. As you ready yourself on your wedding day, relax in our warm and comforting Bridal Suite. From there, you can prepare for your grand entrance by viewing your guests as they arrive and mingle on a 60-inch TV monitor.

Then, enjoy a world class dining experience by way of an eclectic and innovative menu prepared by Executive Chef Scott Klenke, a true artist in contemporary American Cuisine. Be it a sumptuous entree or a lavish buffet, you can be assured that your meal will be one to savor and remember.

Re-branded, re-modeled and re-imagined to deliver a completely new experience, River Club of Mequon invites you to immerse yourself in the precious peace of mind that comes from knowing the experts there have addressed every detail, creating your reception from the ground up and delivering in ways that exceed your dreams.

From the stately elegance of a corporate function to the storybook enchantment of lives coming together, River Club of Mequon will relentlessly pursue new and creative ways to delight up to 450 guests or even 1000 for seasonal open air events. Read less

It is prudent to note that I am the type of person that ALWAYS leaves a review–positive and/or negative. I feel it is extremely important to note when something/someone excels and exceeds expectations and also when something/someone severely disappoints – and everything in between. I feel even more compelled to do so when such a large investment is in place as with a wedding/reception (one-shot once-in-a-lifetime event) and to make sure other brides do not have to go through what I did. Here is our limited feedback from our wedding experience at the RCM on 10/11/14 (and all of this was provided to the venue in order to get any sort of an apology prior to leaving a review):
Pros:
Our wedding was BEAUTIFUL aesthetically.; Larry, the event sales director, was one word: classy.;The food tasting experience was out of this world; the professionalism, taste and vibe to our tasting was phenomenal-all hosted by Patti.; The bridal suite for the women is extremely comfortable and convenient; Venue was extremely clean.
Cons:
The kids meals did not go as paid for;The meal service did not go smoothly-my father, brother-in-law & 4 children did not receive their entrees until after others were given cake;The bars (3) were not staffed (and staff making comments about not wanting to be there) as paid for with guests waiting with no drinks especially during open bar hours; it took almost 20 minutes to get a broken glass cleaned off of the dance floor (unfortunately,it happened)-staff was hard to come by;we simply requested corks to be saved from the night of for a memento craft project-still no corks; The staff did not replenish my floral centerpieces with water, as requested;hall was only set up for 20 (not 21 as planned); staff not showing up for planning meetings; event manager's "too good" attitude; our top tier of wedding cake was smashed in and destroyed. A beautiful venue can only go so far...

My reception at River Club was perfect. One of the biggest selling points for this venue for us was the wedding director, Larry. He is amazing to work with. Unlike other venues, you have one point of contact throughout the process. Larry is pleasant to work with, extremely professional, and very responsive. He has an eye for detail and made the hall look beautiful. When I walked into the room for the first time, it took my breath away. It was better than I could have imagined.

The night of the event we could not have asked for a better crew. They were professional and attentive. The manager running the event (Stephanie) checked in with me several times throughout the night to ensure everything met my expectations. She was amazing.

We also received so many compliments on the food from all of our guests.

The amenities available at River Club are outstanding. We took pictures outside on the golf course and they allowed us to use the golf carts to drive out on the course to find the perfect spot. The hall itself is extremely impressive. The lighting they have adds so much character to the room. You can pick out a specific color that matches with your wedding colors. You can also change the color throughout the night, which is really neat. They also were able to play a slide show during the evening on all of the TVs in the hall (thanks to the great AV guy!). We had our own secure bridal suite to store all of our personal belongings. They also have an amazing outdoor deck that overlooks the course. We had a cocktail hour out on the patio and we received so many compliments on how beautiful it was out there.

The entire night exceeded my expectations and I would not hesitate to recommend this venue.

Mequon Country Club is a beautiful location, and when you rent the ballroom, you essentially get the whole place to yourselves. It's a great layout, with a cocktail area at one end the dance floor on the other, which works well for older relatives and friends that don't want to be right by the music.

The food was delicious--we couldn't go wrong no matter what we chose.

Half the reason we chose MCC for our reception was because of the coordinator, Larry Kreiner. He is so on top of his game and makes you feel like your event is at the top of his priority list. He kept me on track of all the details and was very accessible by both phone and e-mail. He definitely made us feel like we were taken care of and our wedding was a fun success!

I just got married last Friday, May 28th 2011 and I could NOT have asked for a better reception site! If you have not seen this place, go see it -- the scenery alone calls for a great reception site!
Larry, the Wedding director, took care of us from the day we signed the contract with them, March 2010, to the day we got married. For the entire year he made sure to take care of us well!
The days before the wedding Larry was very pleasant as we came over to drop things off asking us how we could help. As any bride should know, the days before a wedding seem to be the most hectic as you are trying to get everything together. Larry definitely took care of us!
For the day of the wedding, Larry and his crew were amazing. They set everything up perfectly, and his staff was extremely curteous and responsive. After the reception, they were kind enough to put all of our things AND gifts in our cars. Our parents were very pleased as no one wants to put things in their car at the end of a long night.
As for the food, the most important part, we had the Proscuitto Chicken and Filet Mignon and Shrimp Duet. People came up to us after dinner and said, "The food was the best reception food I have ever had!" For 200 plated entrees, they did a phenomenal job!
Thank you Larry and crew -- your factility is GORGEOUS and the service was AMAZING!

My husban and I had our dream wedding at the MCC! Larry Kreiner, the event sales director, is absolutely amazing at his job and really takes the time to make sure everything is perfect for your big day! The room was set up to perfection, the food was hot and staff was very accomodating to our guests. Our best man even got a second steak. They were very friendly and extremely easy to work with.

The onyl problem we had during the reception, was a toilet got clogged in the ladies bathroom and none of the staff seemed to know how to fix it. My aunt tracked down the general manager and the problem was immediately fixed.

Our dream wedding really came true due to the expertise of Larry! I would strongly suggest this venue to any bride and groom looking to have a beautiful wedding in the North Shore!
