What Others Have to Say

“Everything was amazing.  I went to every table and asked them all if they were having a good time and if they liked the food and they all LOVED it.  Your service was fantastic, taking care of us for everything, including cutting and serving the cake.  Thank you all SO much!”

“The catering was delicious, the bartenders were fast/talented.  All in all, due to the beauty of the venue and the A+ work by the staff, my fiancé and I had a fantastic time at the wedding.   I would recommend the Overlook as a location to anybody looking to plan a similar event!”

“The last thing Shelby said to me before they got on the plane was, ‘Mom, I couldn’t have dreamed of a more perfect wedding.’  Everything was wonderful; the food, the venue, the service.  It was just perfect.”
