We had an incredible wedding at Wolferts Roost. The staff was wonderful and the price for the overall value of the wedding was extremely reasonable. The setting is beautiful and I would recommend this venue for any event!

We had a beautiful reception at Wolfert's Roost! JoAnn was great to work with during the planning process and helped us put together a reception that our guests are still raving about. Beautiful decor, nice big dance floorm excellent service, delicious food and they were even able to handle special dietary requests without a problem. They even let us come in the day before the wedding to practice our first dance. (Note: We had an afternoon reception -- many of our guests had only been to the Roost at night and had never seen the incredible view out the window before!) So gorgeous and our only regret is that the day flew by so quickly. Thank you to everyone at Wolfert's Roost for making our wedding day a dream come true!

Wolfert's Roost was wonderful to work with! After hearing that our original wedding coordinator had left we were worried about seeing our vision put into action. However, Joanne stepped up and made the day better than we could have imagined. I kept telling everyone that it was like she was in my mind because she set everything up exactly the way I had pictured. The only issue I had was that we were originally told that someone would bring my husband and I drinks while photos were being taken around the grounds, but that never happened. With it being a hot day I thought it a little crazy that we had to ask to have water brought to us. Other than that everything went smooth and beautiful and I would highly recommend this venue to anyone.

We picked the Roost as our venue for both our ceremony and reception and we could have been be happier with our choice. After visiting a few other venues and feeling like people were more interested in our wallet than in what we wanted, the Roost was the obvious choice for us. The venue is beautiful, the grounds are gorgeous, so are the dining room used for the ceremony and the reception room. They also have a great patio off of the bar area that our guests enjoyed very much. I must say that one of the best things about the Roost is that the prices they give you already include taxes and gratuity. It's a little thing that made a huge difference for us, it was so much easier to have an idea of what we were getting ourselves into! At the time we booked the Roost, the manager was Don. He sat with us for as long as we needed and made us feel very comfortable. The new wedding manager is Joann and we were just as pleased with her as we were with Don. She handled our wedding wonderfully and all of our guests were delighted! The food was amazing, people still come and rave to me about it. Joann and her staff took paid attention to details and everything turned out beautifully. The prices are reasonable, the service is impeccable, and Joann really made us feel at home. I could not thank her enough for helping make our wedding day as perfect as we could have hoped for!

Overall: We searched a ton of reception locations in the Capitol district, when we met Don at Wolferts Roost we were sold! He answered all of our questions, and even pointed us towards local vendors that he recommends for cakes, djs, and transportation. It is a beautiful venue and their all in one price made planning so much easier. They don't nickel and dime you for extra forks, lights, glasses, etc like some of the area venues do. Unfortunately about 3 weeks before our June wedding Don resigned. Joann, his temporary replacement did a fine job and the night went great. But I did miss that extra special touch that Don added. We had 100 guests, and even though the ballroom is very large the place looked great! Not too big, definitely not crowded and our guests loved the outdoor patio. I would highly recommend Wolferts Roost to any bride!
Food: Being the bride, I didn't have much time to sit down and eat but the red pepper bisque was out of this world amazing!
Price: They have a couple levels for their weddings. At the time of our wedding they were $90/$110/$120 per person (I believe).
