We visited Fayetteville this past weekend for the Bikes, Blues & BBQ Rally. This place made me speechless and frankly, that is hard to do.

Cindy rang us up (2 beers, 1 sausage plate & 1 turkey leg) and she was very sweet, she should quit her job, she clearly does not belong here.

Apparently this is a wedding type venue that only opened up for the weekend to the public to get in on some of the cash flow coming through town. They were NOT biker friendly. Heck for that matter, they were not PEOPLE friendly.

They had bathrooms but refused to let the public use them...... again, NOT PEOPLE FRIENDLY. The portalets were out the back door, up steep concrete steps that had no hand rail and completely disgusting . Oh but they were labeled male and female - like that makes a difference. Wonder how those smell during weddings or if they remove them for such occasions.

There was no public sink for use.... I asked if I could use the sink behind the counter in the kitchen and was told no, that if I did it everyone would want to. Um yea all 3 people in here are going to swarm over!!! They did have hand wet napkins that are about useless when trying to remove turkey leg remnants from your hands.

The other lady behind the counter, I didn't catch her name but I'm still floored by what she said to me-----
I asked, "How long have you guys been here?"
Her reply, "If you lived here, you would know, now wouldn't you?"
Hey lady - if I lived here you wouldn't be open & trying to make a buck off of me, now would you?

Seems you "Garden Room" are in the wrong business to open up for 400,000 bikers to come in town to treat them like 2nd class citizens that don't belong in your town.

The Garden Room is an amazing venue. They help with any questions or concerns the wedding party may have. The staff are very sweet. They do the set up/take downs and clean up. They even boxed up all of my decorations and cake and helped my family load everything into the cars. They also cut and serve the cake as well. Which believe it or not comes in handy. All in all, they were truly amazing. I could not have picked a better place to host my wedding and reception.

The Garden Room is a wonderful venue with great food. Everything was great up until the moment when we realized that we were short on the main course (meats). Not sure exactly what happened but we had 160 guests planned for the entrees--this didn't even include the additional appetizers that we had order to ensure we had plenty of food for our guests. When we notified the staff of the shortage of the main course, they stated that some of the guests were being "wasteful" in getting food. I really don't think this was the issue as many of the plates that we saw were pretty much empty and they couldn't show us proof of the wastefulness. They also mentioned that we had 172 people at the reception, which would have included small children under the ages of 8. We're not exactly sure how they were able to come up with the 172 headcount when many of the guests were walking around in other areas. Either way, they mentioned that they normally have overage of food and account for people in addition to our headcount so ideally if there were 172 people, the overage would have covered the additional guests. What made me more upset later was that I found out there were guests that confirmed attendance who didn't even show up. So in the end, I feel that they either underestimated the amount of food needed for the main course or there was something going on in the kitchen that didn't add up. The staff did however bring out all remaining food they had for side dishes to make up for the shortage and try to make the situation better. I would recommend overestimating your headcount to avoid this situation and I hope that they correct this issue for future weddings as it is a terrible thing to happen on anyone's wedding day.

My wedding was everything I had hoped it would be and in large part to the garden room! Julie and Eden were so wonderful to work with. They were very honest and upfront about their services from the beginning. Eden helped me plan all of the facets of the event. That alone was a HUGE bonus! Some of the things that first drew my attention is the natural beauty of the location. I wanted a warm, simplistic feel and because the area is already visually appealing it only required a few pops of color accents. Additionally, I was thankful for the additional necessities that were included in the base cost for the event. A lot of the other venues I looked into charged for these items such as tables and chairs. On the day of the event, the entire staff was professional and extremely helpful. One of my favorite moments was at the beginning of the reception, one of the ladies popped up out of nowhere with a glass of water for me as if she had been reading my mind. I used their services to cater the reception. To this day my family and friends give compliments on how delicious the dinner was! Lastly, I had two main criteria I wanted to find in a venue, 1. be able to have it outside with an inside option due to bad weather and 2. have the ceremony and reception in one place since all of my family was from out of town. This venue was able to perfectly meet both of those requirements. All around I was completely satisfied and ecstatic with the entire process. No matter how calm and organized one may be, a wedding can be difficult to plan. The Garden Room team exceeded all of my expectations and because of them much of the wedding process was easier than I could have imagined.

We had our ceremony outside in the garden and our reception inside. Both were beautiful and the looked amazing in the wedding pictures. There were lots of places to take great photos and plenty of room for our 100 guests. Room for lots more people. Julie and Eden (the ladies we working with) were amazing and very responsive. They took so much pressure off of us: Calling the other vendors to make sure things were going to be delivered, ready, etc. Guests ohh'd and ahh'd over the venue as well as the food that they served. Very yummy. It was the best day ever and I don't think we could have picked a better place to have our special day.

I found this venue to be perfect for our wedding. I was a super laid-back bride, and my mom was super laid-back as well, which I think made working with me both easy and difficult, because I ended up second-guessing my decisions and changing my mind a few times. Sheila was really easy to work with, and she was extremely accommodating with everything within her own power. She made changes for us even during the week of our wedding. The staff was excellent and extremely friendly, so much so that I heard compliments about their service even after the wedding was over. Such a beautiful venue, too. Perfect for our needs, and much less than the cost of other venues we looked at. Right down the street from our church, as well. Most of our guests walked to the reception.

The Garden Room was beautiful. It was everything my daughter wanted. Julie was a very professional and sweet lady. Others have said she is hard to reach during the months before and maybe by email but if you just call the cell number she provides you with, she never ONCE failed to answer. I could be so nervous about something and after talking to her, i always felt so at ease. she calms you so quickly with her experience and knowledge which for me not having a coordinator was a huge plus. Julie directed us the day of, she directed us as to who needs to do what and go where. Her timeline for the wedding was amazing. who needs a coordinator when you have julie if you use the garden room? She also offers anything they have to use. Was a wonderful experience
