The Roostertail was absolutely amazing in every way! The ambiance, the food, and the service were fabulous, and our consultant, Shawna, went above and beyond to make our reception better than anything we could have dreamed of. I would recommend the Roostertail to everyone considering a downtown Detroit wedding!

I could not have imagined a better experience for our wedding day. I can't tell you how many people came up to me during and after the wedding telling me how perfect everything was and I could not agree more. We planned our wedding from out of state, and I literally did nothing except pick the food (which was OUTSTANDING) and make the seating chart. The rest was covered by the apparently superhuman Shawna.

At first, the cost seemed a little steep, especially since we weren't planning to spend our life savings on the wedding. However, once we learned what was included (dinner, open bar, desserts, linens, centerpieces, tax and gratuity) it was clear that the Roostertail is an excellent value. Beyond that, all the little things like helping us with the rehearsal, putting up all the decorations I brought, and even bringing us drinks during the post ceremony pictures were more than worth it! Shawna listened to everything I said and everything I wanted, and shared her expert advice when I wasn't quite sure. (suggesting sliders and pizza at the end of the night instead of spending the money on a champagne toast... brilliant and much appreciated by the guests!)

I really can't say enough good things about Shawna and the Roostertail. I am still in a daze about how perfectly everything went... I just can't believe how easy it was! We kept thinking up things that needed to be planned, just to realize that the Roostertail already had it covered. I would have my wedding there 100 times over!

The Roostertail is a beautiful venue, but what makes it so amazing is Shawna, the event director. Shawna went above and beyond her duty with my daughter's wedding last Sat, in so many ways. EVERYTHING was taken care of down to the last detail. My daughter and I are out of town so we did a lot of planning by e mail and over the phone, but one would never know it. The decorations were stunning, the lighting spectacular, the "Roostertail" fountain lit up after dark, and the raised dance floor took everyone's breath away as my daughter and her new husband danced their first dance as Mr. and Mrs. All the guests commented on how wonderful the food was and the dessert table was impossible to choose from! Shawna and her staff know what they are doing. There is a reason The Roostertail has been in business for 50 years. Everything about our wedding was spectacular and pefect and I thank Shawna for that. She even took care of some emotional counseling and encouragement for the father of the bride as he talked to her about his speech, and she poured him a martini and really listened to what he had to say. I just can't say enough good things. Anyone who is planning a wedding in the Detroit area should definitely visit The Roostertail and look at the lovely view of, yes, the Detroit River and the Detroit Skyline. Even on a dreary day the reflected lighting from inside made ours a truly "fairytale" wedding! Thank you Shawna and your dedicated staff! Rita

First off let me say thank you to the Roostertail staff for making my dream wedding come true! Besides having a perfect view and beautiful venue they went above and beyond my expectations. I was impressed with Shawnas knowledge, her professionalism, but most of all her availability at any hour by email, text, phone, and appointments! As a matter of fact, she kept telling us the owner had upgraded her phone to revieve email and text and what a challenge it was for her to learn new technology as she was old school but she always rose to the challenge! She was more than helpful and insightful and I don't know what we would have done without her. I would love to work with her again, and she would be the main reason i would want to return! She is an asset to the Roostertail and we could not be any happier. Thank you again for the great memories :)

The Roostertail became our venue for one solid reason only....the view! I was hooked the moment I walked in, and nothing else mattered. Pro's: Shawna the coordinator is great, food is really good, view is stunning, bottled beer is standard, and their outdoor patio is perfect ceremony spot. Cons: Price, linen selection is limited, drive to get there can be a little scary. they really went above and beyond to make our day perfect! i'd reccomend them to anyone!
