We had our wedding and day after brunch here. We booked the facility right before it changed management companies. It was a pretty stressful experience. In the end, I think everything went alright, but there are a few things to note.

Communication was an issue right before the wedding (but very responsive in the planning process). The ceremony site was set up incorrectly in spite of my having provided a map and having a discussion with the site coordinator and the tent delivery team the day before the set up. I was later told that there was no way that I could have had the set up that I requested because the tent wouldn't fit, and then something about the irrigation system, neither of which came up in the previous discussions. Also, the coordinator told me that I could set up some stuff a few days early, and the contract said that the vendors would have access after 10 AM the day of the wedding, but two days before I was told the room would not be set up until 2PM the day of the wedding - I was intending to set up everything by 11AM and then be off getting ready because I thought the room would be ready by 10 AM. At one point the site coordinator told me she "should charge me $2000 for [the use of] the room," because I wanted to set some stuff up a few days early, which she had said was OK(?). I don't really understand what happened. Luckily I had a wedding coordinator.

For the brunch, the restaurant refused to accept a pre-booking for our 40 (!) guests, saying that they only did call-ahead seating the day of, asking us to call the morning of the brunch. As you might anticipate, it was hectic and they were unprepared for our guests.

In the end, everything was good. The site is gorgeous, the food is delicious, the buffet is plentiful, and everyone had a great time.

Definitely one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! Dean made us feel like our wedding was as special to him and The Flatwater Grill as it was to us. From the beginning of the planning process to the moment we left the Grill, everything was perfect! They were extremely cooperative and went out of their way to make our day amazing. The setting and scenery along the river was gorgeous! The Flatwater Grill also did our catering. The food was superb and the cost very affordable. They were flexible on the menu and helped guide us through the entire planning process. All of our guests kept commenting on how great the food was.
No details were left unattended and they made my wedding stress-free and over-the-top perfect!!
