I would definitely suggest The Rooster tail! Erica Helped me get everything that I ever wanted for my reception! Everything went smoothly. Chef Paul really helped me out by providing great service and most importantly the best food we've ever had! After the Reception we still have people talking about the food and the venue! Our wedding day was so perfect thanks to Erica and Chef Paul and the team at the Roostertail!

It was definitely worth every penny paid and more!

My wedding turned out beautifully Thank u JESUS! Shawna was very helpful and she does a terrific job trying to meet your needs and accommodate you. I wanted to schedule a tasting to choose my menu they told me that they don't do tastings so basically you have to hope and pray the food you choose will be good. The owner of the Roostertail is the biggest racist jerk on the planet. He was very rude and he did not treat us like we had just spent 20,000 to book hos venue for our wedding. If the Roostertail didnt havw shawna I really wouldn't have given those people my hard earned money!

Our wedding was simply perfect a great deal due to the coordinator and owner of the Roostertail. The owner is very much involved in all of the events that take place and keeping his customers happy is a main priority. The food was wonderful, and working together we did a great job on all of the decorations, and special touches.

What can I say about the Roostertail. They completely made our reception freaking amazing. From the moment we booked there, I knew I was dealing with a great place and a great sales person, Shawna. The Roostertail had so many nice added bonuses like a variety of linens to use in house (saved lots of money for a great look), chivari chairs, centerpiece options if you want them and obviously, a gorgeous venue. They went above and beyond in every possible way and I can't even say enough about them and Shawna.

Shawna let me email and call her so many times well in advance of our wedding with stupid questions and never getting annoyed with me. And that was just leading up to the wedding. The few months before, my communications and visits became more frequent and Shawna (and all the staff) were so helpful. I would go to play around with linens or check out the room and they let me come and go as I pleased. Shawna also let us sample some food at a party they were having so we could decide on the menu. She really helped us decide on things that work well and worked with us on our quirky requests like having just the salads plated and set out so people didnt' have to juggle two plates in the buffet line and getting us our Oberon for the bar. Shawna also allowed for my parents to charge a monthly payment every month until the wedding rather than waiting till the end...which my parents will be forever grateful for. We were able to upgrade just certain liqours as part of our contract, rather than the whole bar, and get appetizers and a late night snack...while staying at the Roostertail revenue minimum for a Saturday night wedding. They allowed us to drop off two car loads full of decor at the site the day before and they hauled it all off for us and locked it away for safe keeping. Talk about service. And this is just before May 9th.

May 9th. I hired a DOC to take care of a lot of set-up for the extensive candy buffet and parts of table decor (chair sashes, chargers). More to come on that review...pending further discussions. Shawna called me at 11AM the morning of the wedding, asking what she could get started on for us since all she wanted to do was help. That made me feel sooo good that she was taking such an active role in our wedding to make it phenomenal. When I walked into the room the day of the wedding, I was in shock and awe. It was more than I could have ever imagined. They set up the linens and the room in such a great way and I later found out, they set up our candy buffet, not our DOC as planned. It was more than I thought it could be. I had about 21 containers of my own, but the Roostertail contributed some and it was the biggest thing of candy I had ever seen. I think I made my little cousins' lives that night.

Anyways, the Roostertail also threw in a Signature Martini for us free of charge and our guests loved it. The waiters had trays floating around filled with them and it was such a nice touch that they did not have to do for us, but did. The food was outstanding, everyone loved it and even the chef came out to make sure everything was to our liking. We had White Castles as a midnight snack and I think that was the hit of the night...there were boxes lying around everywhere. An added nice thing that they did for us as we were waiting for the Omni shuttle to come back at the end of the night, the owners drove Steve and I to our hotel so we didn't have to wait. It was so thoughtful!

All in the all, the Roostertail made our wedding so fantastic, fun and we felt like celebrities with the way they treated us. It is not a cheap venue, but the quality of service and food is worth every penny. I wish I could start planning another party there!

The Roostertail is a unique, fun place that your guests will love. Their food is great, and they also provide some decorations like candles, etc. I had a few issues with them - make sure to get in writing everything they promise you. I had 3 different coordinators b/c they kept quitting - so I think there was something going on with the ownership. But overall - a great Detroit venue.

OMG! My wedding was like a fairytail! We got married on the deck house on the water. Our wedding coordinator Jacqueline, was AMAZING from the beginning of the ceremony to the end of the reception. Literally holding my hand before the ceremony because I was so nervous.. The raising dance floor, the delicious foods, the desert table, the bar, the out door patio, the VIP bridal suite with heated toilet seats, the purple lights, THE VIEW! The centerpieces, the ambiance! I highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a fairytail, not super traditional but elegant and FUN! Ladies, check it out if you are looking for a venue, I PROMISE your wedding will be amazing!

I'm so glad we went with the Roostertail! The staff there are nice and helpful. They go above and beyond. They're just great at their job! They made the place look wonderful and everything was better than I expected. I think it's a great value for a reception. The place will look great for your wedding! You won't have to worry about the details or spend more money on decorations, renting chairs, cloth, etc.
