Working with River Roast (and Darcey) was one of the best decisions that we could have made for our wedding. Seriously. Everything is easy (they provide tables/chairs/linens/etc) and everything is right there. But the best part was having the venue coordinator (again, Darcey) to help us through. She was there for every step of the way and then, even more shocking, she was there the day of setting everything up, coordinating with our band and even fluffing my gown before I walked down the aisle. She was awesome, River Roast was awesome AND EASY and I loved every second of our wedding in this venue.

Amazing night. Everything was perfect. The restaurant is right on the river creating a beautiful backdrop for a night reception. Darcey Gerber (wedding coordinator at River Roast) was fabulous. She helped coordinate every last detail via e-mail and phone for our "destination" reception (neither of us live in Chicago). The appetizers were delicious. The food and event was reasonably priced. All in all, this restaurant made my reception as seamless as possible. I was able to show up and have a great time. Can't say enough positive things about the River Roast!

We had my daughters wedding at Fulton's. It was wonderful. Darcey was very nice to work with. On the day of the wedding the staff was great, very professional. The meal service was wonderful and the food was out of this world!! Just great. The setting on the river is so beautiful and the guests just loved the outdoor patio. We couldn't have asked for more

My husband and I had our wedding reception at Fulton's, and had an absolutely perfect day! Hilary, our contact at Fulton's, worked to ensure that every detail we requested was perfect. We arrived to Fulton's via Water Taxi, and the staff at Fulton's had champagne waiting for our bridal party. The outdoor space was ideal for our cocktail hour, and having it open all night was a great way for guests to cool off and take a break from dancing to our band.

The entire staff at Fulton's was accommodating and anticipated our needs. They were friendly, helpful, and overall helped to make our day amazing!

fultons on the River is the perfect spot to hold wedding ceremony and reception. They really know how to do special events. The food, service during wedding and overall service was outstanding. The view of the city from the outside patio made our wedding so chicago and chic. I literally can't say enough great things about this venue.

My husband and I worked with Julie at Fulton's on the River and had a wonderful experience! She was more than happy to accommodate our every request and she was there the night of our wedding to make sure everything worked out. My guests said the food was absolutely yummy! We also got great picture outside by the river! It was everything we hoped for and more. We would recommend Fulton's to any couple looking for a wedding venue.

Fulton's turned out to be the perfect choice for our reception. With the weather perfect for the event, the outside veranda along the river turned out to be the most popular place for people to gather during the reception. The views were spectacular, especially at night. Devin who hosted the event for Fulton's was a joy to work with and made what was a stressful event much more easy to arrange and plan. Everyone had nothing but compliments about the food and service. We really lucked out in our choice of Fulton's.

We were completely thrilled with our event at Fulton's! The food was some of the best wedding food I've ever tasted - many of our guests commented on how large and delicious their meals were - especially the crab cakes! You must have the crab cakes! And the fact that the cater is on-site took a lot of stress of us in planning. Linens, tables, chairs, serve wear, bar stuff, ect was all provided by the vendor under a single per head cost. We could upgrade as we wanted, but the basic stuff was gorgeous (especially the chairs) - so we left well enough alone! The staff was super accommodating and wonderful to work with both before and during the event. Making sure our glasses were always full and we at least got a few bites of each items offered to our guests. The room itself is amazing and you can't beat the veranda that overlooks the Chicago river. I couldn't have picked a more "chicago" location and I would recommend them 100 times over!

We booked Fulton's when our original venue shut down 8 months before our wedding. From that day forward, Jamie was nothing but helpful, accomodating, and patient! Fulton's is a beautiful venue. We had 96 people with a buffet style dinner and cocktail reception and had our ceremony there as well. The setup of the rooms were so nice and with the skyline in the background we couldn't have asked for a better space. We also had the balcony right off the room so my smokers had a place to go and just to get a breath of fresh air. The FOOD was the best wedding food I've ever ate (and I'm glad it was at my wedding!). There was so much food, it was crazy.
Best of all, the price, is so reasonable for what you get especially in downtown Chicago. My parents from Kentucky paid for our wedding and they thought they received a really good price for everything we got. If you're looking for a wonderful place to have your wedding, go to Fulton's. I couldn't be happier and all of my guests were amazed at how wonderful everything was. Location, food, and ambiance...Fulton's has all of this and I couldn't imagaine having my wedding anywhere else.
