As a wedding party member/guest this was the worst reception site for any large group. The wedding was approximately 160, and with the diagonal block setup of the room, about half the guests couldn't see a thing during the toasts, first dance, etc. Even less for the cake cutting. It may be find for groups of about 50 to 75, but it was horrible for our group. The food was not great, rubbery chicken, cold soup, overcooked vegetables, and the wine service was pretty bad. We didn't get the red wine option at our table (though we asked several times) until the meal was over (the other tables had it, and we didn't). Mind you, we were the table next to/behind the sweethearts table/wedding party table. Couldn't see a thing from our seats. It was pretty disappointing as a guest. The cocktail hour was in the walkway. Oh, and the dance floor was in the middle of the diagonal setup, so if you were on the other side of the room from the bar... forget getting to it. It was so crowded that it was impossible to enjoy yourself. This site may be fine for a smaller group, but defiantly avoid it if you have a large wedding. It truly sucked as a guest. Only way I'm seeing what happened during the reception is pretty much going to be from the wedding video.
