Kelly Ovanin

Lovely event venue

Linda Orosco

They had a GREAT mother's day brunch. Great food. Only thing that they don't tell you is there are NO REFILLS on pop. You pay for each pop you get and they are NOT very big glasses.

Lori Clark

Nephew's wedding reception, great food and great space for it

Lisa Pajkos

Very elegant and we'll designed.

Very nice clean organized the food was very good but on the last piece of the chicken I had I can taste the old grease that had been fried in but other than that I gave them up for I like the service everything was wonderful just that last one issue

Ray Zajeski

Well organized multiple rooms for 3 separated events. All 3 can be opened into a big event of up to 500 guests. Great place to have a reception/fundraiser/gala. When all rooms are opened, the room is gigantic! The management is super easy to work with and the dinners are perfectly prepared. Ray – The Connexion Band

Matthew Long

I came to Avalon Manor Banquet center for a family members wedding. After arriving in the parking lot I seen a nice set up outdoors with flowers and chairs. After going in I realized it was split off into different sections so more than one event can go one at the same time. A first I was like dang we are going to be parting with the people next to use but the way everything is set up I did not see anyone from the other party all night. This place seems to be set up and ran so that your party of people stays together and does not ever intrude on the other party's. I side the venue was very nice the tables and chairs where nice and in good condition the lighting was good. And we even had a bar set up In our room. We also had a nice back drop outside for pictures. All and all we had no complaints I would recommend this venue to family and friends. Also has a nice big parking lot for all your guest.

Matt Nondorf

Nice place to have a conference with good food.

Nitapooh Jelks

Beautiful place for a wedding

Jennifer Siatta

I think this place for a wedding was awesome. Really pretty and its bigger on the inside than it looks. However the bathrooms were a mess- paper towels and water everywhere. There should also be a closer bathroom at the opposite end. We were in the fountain room and we had to walk all the way around to the front. Dinner was great and the ambiance was great.

c rs

I'm getting married here in september! I'm so excited. its so beautiful and the staff has been amazing so far!

Cole Spolaric

Interior was really nice and well maintained. Can hold large events. Food wasn't real warm when it came out is my only real complaint.

bryce jones

It's a beautiful place especially for a wedding. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful

Nicole Mock

We had our wedding reception here for about 150 people a few weeks ago and it was amazing. Our coordinator and several other members of the staff were more than willing to meet with us this past year to be sure everything was perfect. They went above and beyond to make sure all of our decorations were set up before we arrived. The food was amazing and they had us come in for a tasting before the big day to make sure we got what we wanted. I cannot say enough great things about Avalon and their team. We will be back in the fall for my brother's wedding!

Amber Clara

I was the maid of honor in a wedding at Avalon. The decorations were gorgeous, the staff were friendly, the venue was beautiful and clean and spacious, and the food & drinks were good. I have 1 major complaint, which is why I gave only 3 stars instead of 4 or 5. My complaint: The waitstaff cleared the tables WAY too fast. Examples are below: (1) I had to take the bride to the bathroom during dinner, maybe 10-15 minutes after they had served us our food, and by the time we got back, ALL of our food was gone. I barely got to eat anything! The bride didn't either! It was very disappointing. They should have waited longer and they should have asked if it was okay to clear the food. I've been to multiple weddings and I've also been a waitress at a wedding banquet venue for years, so I know what good service looks like. This was not it. (2) The waitstaff cleared off all of our drinks - including 2 full bottles of champagne, 1 full beer, and multiple full glasses of water - while my friends and I went on the dance floor for one song. As a waiter/waitress, you need to use your common sense. Guests are free to leave their tables as they wish, but that doesn't mean they are finished. Furthermore, it is pretty obvious that 2 full bottles of champagne and a full beer means that the guests are not done drinking. Other than this major complaint, I had a positive experience. I hope, in the future, the waitstaff here are educated on proper table-clearing etiquette as that will make the guests' experience much better.

rachel tate

Nice, clean ,and friendly staff.

Maria Zayko

We had our barn wedding catered by Avalon Manor in Hebron. Food and drinks was one of the most important things to us and they certainly delivered! The buffet food was delicious with many options for all and stayed warm after setup. Everything was delivered on time and the bartenders did a great job. Everyone was happy! Highly recommend!

Andrew Bozak

She - She lil -Ma

Sheila Shelton

Keith Berry

Food, service, and the facility were excellent.

Kuro Tafolla

The area was nice but the event planning was horrible. And it was burning hot inside the building.

Robert Sheehan

Go here every year for the Friendly Sons of Erin party, and they are always great!

Alex F

Great place for any event, from a small business meeting to a big wedding. Upscale and well- maintained.

Robert Willmore

A beautiful reception and event hall.

Terona Skinner

I attended an event at your facility the wedding was scheduled at 4:30. I arrived at 4:15 to see the bride setting her own dessert table guest placing centerpieces and no staff on the floor. While sitting at my table a staff pouring ice in the glasses wasted ice all over the table picked it up with her hands and pkaced it in the next cup. When asked if she thought that was sanitary her reply was the tabkecloths are brand new. For such a high cost no genuine courteous service and attitudes of the staff rude. Nice facilty but staff needs more training.

Allison Zalesny

I've had a few events here for work and have always found it incredibly easy to work with their staff to make sure everything runs smoothly

claudia thomas

Nice atmosphere and good food

Karen Larson

I have been here many times for different occasions. Food is delicious...servers ...the best. A shout out to P.J. our server. This young lady reads minds...would look for her for a refill and she already had what we needed in her hands. Couldn't ask for pun intended.

Mark Vecchi

Nice atmosphere, good food.

Paul Dellemonache

Always great.

Sharron Rouse

Yes, food was good, so was the customer service.

Tensia Johnson

Great for weddings and receptions. They need shading over chairs outside but everything was beautifully done.

Dana Hand

Nice building. With the exception of two staff members, hateful people. The food was pretty good but cold. The owner was a good indication of why the staff was so hateful. Very unprofessional and rude person.

Dawgin Messi

I had my dads funeral service there. The food was terrible.. but the service was okay.. if I could do it all over I would have tried a different place.

Paulette J Jacob

This facility is good for anyone (business or pleasure) with great food and service.-----Was there again four months ago; and the service and food was just as good as each time I've been there.

Travis W.

Nice facility. Wedding we were at had an open bar, but they were happy to serve me plain ol' soft drinks.

Frank Czubala

The food was really Good! Pot roast done to perfection!!

Tracie Owens

I am very disappointed in this venue, my daughter-in-law had her bridal shower there last weekend. The the venue was very nice right down to the water feature in the pond. The staff was professional and the food was good however when it was time to pack up our things the staff told my daughter-in-law that she couldn't take the leftover food. She actually paid for 75 guest but only 50 people attended. Which means there was ample food left. I feel that she should have been able to take the leftover food or get a refund. When asked what they were going to do with the leftover food, she was told that the food would be divided amongst the staff which I think is very unfair. I advised my daughter in law to contact a lawyer to see what her legal rights are regarding this matter.


Very good food and service!

Ava Gardner

Keith Erickson

Went there first time for Easter Buffett. Food quality was good but seletion was poor, there were 4 breakfast items, vegetables were a medley only, carved meats had only one item, ham. The salad was pre mixed, and there was no types of fruits or cheeses offered. Also there is no alcohol served there which is NOT mentioned on there flyer. Servers were polite but under staffed. Took awhile to get our drinks

Rich Gomez

Opened hall late. Food was disgusting. Clean hall with good servers and clean restrooms.

April Thorne

A great hall to hold any event. Food also very good.

Dave Waffler

Always an amazing time and great food. Clean and wonderful as always.

Dan Nolan

The Avalon has enough room for as many people as you need. The meeting of Realtors was a packed room and well-organized. And we all had coffee!

Sam C

Been coming here for various business and social events for years, and years, and YEARS. And, Avalon has been *the* *exact* *same* down to the worn carpets, dingy walls, and just generally 90’s look. In the 90’s, I would’ve given this place 4-5 stars, but hey that’s 20+ years ago. Time for a new coat of paint, new carpets, or ...something.

Ayrial Frith

I had a great time

Sarah k

Yesterday, I was here for my pinning ceremony for school, and I was so impressed by the staff and service I received. My waitress was exceptional and I will be keeping this place in mind for my events. Food was amazing too!

Finding Fluffy

Great banquet hall. Went here recently and had a great time. Food was excellent and the staff was very friendly.

Nathan Hand

Staff is rude and a little obnoxious. Served everyone food then immediately closed the bar of all drinks. Why give us food then deny us drinks? Didnt apologize said closed for dinner very rudely.

Angelica Guzman

The staff was very helpful!! Many places to take pictures, and my venue was near the gazebo, loved it!!

Greg Koszut

Great events here. Be sure to order the Perch if you are hosting an event here. All the food is great but the fish is exceptional. Very good service at these events as well!

Was there for my son's bowling banquet. Food was as you expect for a large group. Everything was dry. Very crowded room, food cart kept bumping my son. Staff was kind and quick to help. There was another event and the music was so loud that we couldn't hear our speakers even with the microphone.

Went here for an event. Soup was delicious! Portion was a little small, not offered more soup but was given more bread... the chicken sandwich with gouda was soooooo dry. Everyone away my table removed the chicken from the sandwich in effort to be able to feel full. No sauce. Nothing was offered.

Betty Lloyd

Refuse to provide containers for food not. Eaten

Keith Gingerich

We'll run & pleasant atmosphere.

Michael Blakesley

Nice place, particularly if the company is paying

Joan Sporny

We've been coming to Avalon for our retirement planning dinner for several years, and the food just keeps getting better and better! They have several large rooms available to rent, so there is no problem when lots of events are taking place. Their parking lot is huge, so I've never had problems finding a spot. Their staff is friendly and efficient, too.

Beth Kozlowski

Beautiful place for a wedding reception, or a bridal or baby shower. Some of the rooms large windows, with nice views The food and service there is great!

Quentin Brown

Classy venue and wonderful for conference! Great views of the pond in the rear from inside center! Would recommend for banquets, seminars, etc.

Alex S

Took my family of 20 to the Mothers Day Brunch. It was incredible. All of the food was fresh and prepared very well. Smoked Salmon was out of this world. Cocktail Shrimp was big! Ham and Prime rib very tasty. Everyone in the family loved it. Waitress Nicole extremely pleasant and quick. Unlike resturants this venue is more unique... They are nit pushing you out the door to get the next tabe seated. Years ago we used to go to Strongbow Inn for Mother's Day and Avalon exceeded them by a lot!

Stephen Muenstermann

The staff did an amazing job

Mark Price

jacqueline misera

I attend many affairs here. The food, parking and safety are great. Atmosphere nice intimate quiet. Large enough for the midsize to large events. Has smaller venue spaces upstairs also. Nice for business venues. Hotels, restaurants and mall on strip.

Vaughan Pritchett

Anne Aiken-VZ

Beautiful and clean. Lots of parking, good food and good service.

Octavio Ruiz

I had a great time there with my cousin's brother-in-law good time at day best place to party

Pat Szczecina

Staff was very good saved it. The food was mediocre mashed potatoes more like soup. Didn't even try the rabbit food broccoli raw. Sorry millennials think it's cool I like my food cooked. Chicken was okay. Bread was real good that's what I ate bread and butter. I realize they had four weddings going and it's a hard task.
