My husband and I had our wedding reception at The Christy on August 23, 2014. It was absolutely fabulous! We cannot say enough wonderful things about the staff, venue and food!! All of the pre-planning was so easy and smooth! The night of, the event manager was spot on keeping the show running smoothly! And, the bartenders kept up with our party crowd! The food was exceptional! All of our guests commented on how tasty it was! All food is made in-house and it shows!
I would highly recommend The Christy for any event!!

The event coordinator Kim was very nice and answered all of my questions. The event manager Gary was very nice and a joy to work with. We have heard how great the food was since our wedding. I'm still getting calls about the food. Everything was set up and ready to go on time. My husband and I were even greeted with our drinks in the lobby. (As we requested after a very long day)

The Christy is a fantastic place to have a wedding reception! Kelly made everything so easy and was great to work with. It was just my reception there so all their attention was on you and not to worry about other noisy receptions going on. I also went with their buffet for dinner and it was sooooo good. My guests even talked about how delicious the food was. Everyone had a great time and would definitely recommend anyone to have their reception there!

The Christy was easy to work with, flexible, reasonably priced, and had fantastic food. We worked primarily with Kelly and she made the entire process seamless. The free tasting offered a variety of options and helped us to determine what we wanted to serve at our wedding. Since their pricing was so reasonable, we were able to add an extra side dish and entrée, which gave our guests a lot of options when choosing their meal. We went with the buffet so that our guests could eat as much as they wanted, and they certainly did just that. For weeks after the wedding we heard rave reviews of the different items we chose for the evening. Everyone had something that they absolutely loved, and everyone loved that they could eat as much of it as they wanted. We highly recommend that you check out The Christy for your catering or reception needs because they provide excellent service, quality food, and a fun-filled atmosphere.

A friend of mine had her reception here a few years prior, and I was impressed back then. From the beginning (I booked them about 16 months prior to the wedding), the owners and staff worked with me on every aspect for my reception. Granted, I didn't ask for much or anything out of the ordinary, but The Christy was wonderful! You definitely get bang for your buck. By far, The Christy was the best deal for everything I wanted... food, alcohol, linens and decorations, etc. Any bride on a budget who still wants to have a classy, beautiful reception should definitely look into The Christy.

I couldn't have been happier with the Christy. They were extremely flexible with the special requests I had and let us into the venue days before the event to set up. I'm not a "banquet center" person usually,but th eroom looked so beautifual and the staff were extremely attentive, professional and responsive to our guests needs. The food was absolutely delicious and we're still getting comments from our guests about it. It was a wonderful value for the price and I would recommend them without hesitation.

I'm so glad we used The Christy for our reception venue. Barb was so helpful answering all my many questions and emails prior to the event, including peanut allergy questions, scheduling questions, etc. The service was great, the communication was excellent, and we had so much fun. Everyone said how good the food was, the bar staff was very accomodating, and the room was the perfect atmosphere (neutral back drop for our decor/decorations). I would definitely recommend.

I have attended two wedding receptions at The Christy. They have the best price in the area and that is why we chose them for our wedding reception. It’s one price for everything -- buffet dinner, open bar, and cake. Barb, one of the managers there, is great to work with. She responds to emails and phone messages quickly. The venue has two rooms, one larger than the other. We are in the smaller room, which will accommodate our 175 guests. My only complaint is that the venue allows smoking inside. However, I never noticed a smell when visiting while there was not an event taking place. I am going to place no smoking signs on the door and at the bar for my reception.

In the months leading up to my wedding, I found The Christy staff to be friendly and helpful. They provided us a great reception without breaking the bank. We received nothing but compliments on the food they served.
We did have 3 small (very small) issues with The Christy. First, we had issues with their hours when trying to accommodate our other vendors. When my band leader wanted to meet with me at the venue to check out where they would be playing, it was difficult for me to make an appointment with them on the weekend. It eventually happened, but they suggested many times I come in during their weekday hours, but my husband and I both work so it would have been impossible for us to do that. Also, I must not have been paying attention when we were signing our contract, but they did not give us access to the building until a few hours before our reception began. Which meant that it was very hard for our vendors that were setting up at our ceremony and the reception. They offered us other options like coming by the night before, but few of the options they gave worked for what I needed. I needed my vendors to come in and set up throughout the day of my wedding, not just a couple hours before. We also didn't appreciate the manager rudely yelling at the band to stop at the minute our ceremony was scheduled to end. I get it that everyone wants to wrap it up and go home, but it could have been handled more professionally. I would call those fairly minor issues. I would certainly recommend The Christy to anyone. If I had to do it all over again, I would most definitely choose The Christy.

Our wedding reception was held at The Christy Banquet Center in O'Fallon, MO. It is the newer of the two locations owned by the company. After attending several wedding shows and discussing our options, The Christy was the place where we would get the most bang for our buck. The cost was offest slightly because our wedding was on a Friday as opposed to a Saturday and was also in the non-peak month of July. Clients can choose to use the center pieces provided on site, in which case they will be set up for you... or you can bring your own, which is what I did. My bridesmaids and I, along with my mom, had such a fun time. The staff was always willing to help. We opted for a buffet dinner (but sit down is also offered) that included both roast beef and chicken parmesan, as well as salad, bread, green beans, potatoes, and pasta. The food is excellent and the staff are quite efficient at keeping guests happy. Also included in the reception package are a 4 hour open bar and wedding cake from McArthur's bakery.
