This venue had everything we were looking for: a beautiful beach to perform our ceremony, a great deck overlooking the ocean for our cocktail hour, a huge reception site, and rooms to accomodate our out-of-town guests.

Planned my wedding very quick within a couple of months, and they were very eager to please. Everything came together perfectly and it turned out better then I imagined. Very friendly staff, always there to help out & accomodate all my out of town guests. Such a beautiful place to have a ceremony & reception.

We had "By the Bay" for our buffet with appetizers of cheese and fruit beforehand. Cheryl was very flexible with us on not wanting dessert served, as we had wedding cake for our guests. She subsituted (for the same price per person) the cheese and fruit which was appreciated. We did not have an open bar, but keep in mind you will be charged a fee for a bartender if you choose to have one. We had champagne for our toast and the staff did a good job of serving. There is a little mix up currently, in that our wedding champagne flutes (personalized wedding ones) did not seem to make it out of the reception room. Being as my husband and I were not there to personally see what happened- we can not point any fingers- although it is frustrating that noone seems to know where they went!! Also, there was quite a bit of our wedding cake left (on plates) that did not get boxed up. We were charged a fifty dollar cake cutting fee, so I feel this should have been included. The staff were very sweet, but my water glass was refilled once and then never again. Overall it was a good experience with a few minor annoying issues. The end result is we are married and everyone had a great time:-)

Things were great until the night of the rehearsal. There were plants everywhere throughout the hotel and my family asked politely if they could move some of them behind the arch so we could have some greenery. Cheryl said no and wouldn't even try to meet our needs. Then the night of the wedding during the reception we were having a hosted bar and my husband went up and asked the bartender how much we had left until the bar ran out and the bartender said it was an open bar. Cheryl was the MOD that night and started attacking me and saying that I signed paper work for an open bar which I have emails stating I did NOT want an open bar. Thankfully, my mother in law was there and straightened things out so I could try to enjoy the rest of the wedding. The place was lovely and Cheryl was good until the day before and then the customer service went right out the window.

We stayed here for our first night together, if you know what I mean! We had a great time and the service was great! Very professional and clean. We used this vendor for our catering as well - delicious food! Guests were thrilled! We thought it was a bit pricey, however, because we were on a tight budget - our real spending went to our honeymoon fund, which scraped our pockets. Needless to say, it was a great experience and we would be willing to shell out the bucks again!

Tradewinds Catering was my cater because I was having my wedding at the Virginia Beach Resort and Conference Center. I was pleased with the different menus selections they offer. The only complaint I had is you can’t taste the food prior to the wedding. I was on the edge about that but I was okay with it after taking to a couple of people about the restaurant. They ensured me that I had nothing to worry about with the food. I must say they were not lying the food was delicious. One of my favorite appetizers were offered on the menu which is bacon wrapped scallops they were ABSOLUTELY delicious. They also set up a chocolate fountain for my guest and it was a major hit. The catering staff was phenomenal and helped me out and gave me everything I needed. I would highly recommend the restaurant to anyone for catering or just a nice meal.

They were very willing to work with me to tweak the menu to best suit the timeline of my wedding. The appetizers were very good. The buffet meal was alright. The food was not the best I have ever had, but suitable for the price that we paid. The professionalism and politeness of the servers was great. Everything was on time and done exactly how was decided beforehand. I would definitely use them if I had it to do over again.

Tradewinds Catering was my cater by default. However, overall I was satisfied but not entirely thrilled with the service they provided. The set menus they offer do provide your guests with a TON of food but I would rather have quality rather than quantity any day of the week. My biggest complaint is that they DO NOT LET YOU TASTE THE FOOD!!! This was almost the deal breaker in me not using the Virginia Beach Resort Hotel and Conference center as my venue. I was absolutely flabbergast that they would not allow me to taste anything. However, the food was wedding food but after all that planning and worrying I didn't care what I ate as long as it was hot and edible and it was. The best thing that I did was order an array of appetizers which were ABSOLUTELY delicious. I could not say that about the main courses. The desserts I heard from my guest were delicious as well. The catering staff was phenomenal and helped me out and gave me everything I needed. The catering department suffers though at the hands of a management staff that suffers from poor planning. The director of catering was wonderful and tried to provide me with everything I needed and eventually she did. However, I had to fight tooth and nail with her boss to get it and if I had not spoken up about the atrocity because that is what is was, I would not have gotten what I wanted. They were only allowing me to set up my ceremony site and reception room until 4pm, my ceremony was at 4:30. I got them to agree to let me set up the reception room at 1pm but was originally told I would have to pay for this. In the end I did not. Tradewinds Catering is a good deal for the money, however, possibly not worth the headache. So decide carefully before forging on and make sure you know everything before signing on the dotted line.
