Mothers day brunch. Food and service was excellent. The event center however needs some help on noise abatement. It was busy, as you'd expect, but better sound absorbing materials would make it much better.

Fantastic crew, lovely place, best wedding dinner I have ever had. Servers are extremely eager to take care of your every want and need. I was highly impressed by this place on multiple levels!

We recently lost our dad to Mesothelioma and had his celebration of life gathering here and everything was great ! Great staff and a very nice and comfortable place for family and the food was wonderful.

Have been here for several events and really enjoy this venue. The food and service was fantastic. Bathrooms are easy to get in and out of. Plenty of parking available too.

Michael Krech

Little pricy especially if you bring kids. They charge too much for brunch for little kids. Food is great though plus all the champagne you can drink.

Great place for large events. The food is very good, but not quite as good as the related lake Elmo inn.

I'm not a fan of buffet style service, but this is the type place I would never hesitate going to. They are a full service restaurant as well which is always an experience!

The Oakdale Area Chamber of Commerce uses this facility on a regular basis for their general meetings. The facility is always clean, well prepared, and well staffed. The food is evey bit as good as the food at Lake Elmo Inn Restaurant. If you are planning a large event, this may be your place!

One of the chefs used the same glove to handle food and open a community door handle without switching out gloves . Thats not sanitary . Please work on better sanitary habits , you may not think no one sees but we do .

I had grown up absolutely loving Lake Elmo in all their food festivities and was so excited when I saw that they were a preferred vendor at the venue we had chosen. I had worked with their catering department for years through work and had strongly trusted their corporate catering! It seemed like the perfect fit for our wedding. Positive: our guests raved about their food! The duck and wild rice soup is still talked about. The food was fresh and hot when we got it. The service team was on time and set up the place settings nicely. Negatives: the on going communication as we planned our event was very poor. The catering coordinator asked us to fold our own napkins even though we lived out of state and wouldn’t get to town until 2 days before the wedding (I refused to do). Their up charges for service are through the roof (18% service fee, 20% venue fee posted to the client vs most caterers who take care of that themselves). What we originally discussed at our first meeting for a budget was out the window. There were a number of added costs per person for the meal (7$/person for plates and napkins) that were printed small in the very back of their 30 page catering guide (that as a overwhelmed bride planning a wedding from afar and starting a new job, was the last thing I could comb through). As the wedding approached, we were not given contact information for the service lead and had no way to make last minute contact. The night of the wedding, the service team had forgotten the mother of the bride’s gluten free meal, had forgotten to hand out the kids meals (which made the 20+ kids at the wedding very restless and a pain for their parents). While us as the bride and groom had a nice meal, we came to find out the service for our guests’ meal was not executed effectively. As dinner was completed the service lead told me that they had twice forgotten the hot water dispenser for our hot cocoa bar (winter wedding necessity and a big personal need!) and instead of going to get it again, they decided to disassemble the hot cocoa bar my mother had made for us without asking, but telling myself as the bride right before speeches. Letting go of these mishaps during the wedding, we were contacted over a month after the wedding to pay our invoice balance. After relating our concerns to the catering coordinator, they only acknowledged 1/2 of our questions and still wanted us to tip 18+% gratuity. They claimed that they had workers who stayed until after midnight to clean up even though our parents were the last ones there and we had not asked or wanted to pay labor for any outside help when our dinner ended by 8pm. They did give us a 350$ credit for the kids meals (a 3% value of our costs). I hope that the catering coordination and service improve so that couples can confidently provide the wonderful food Lake Elmo is capable of to their guests!

The Lake Elmo Event Center catered a class reunion of 40 people at our home last evening and once again did a fabulous job!!! Lori and Erin were so helpful with the set-up of the food, bartending, taking drink orders and removing used plates. The food & desserts were fantastic and beautifully displayed! The Event Center planning was great to work with, I highly recommend using them for a party in your home!!

Our daughter's wedding was held at the Lake Elmo Inn Event Center this summer, and we couldn't be happier with their venue. The ceremony was outside and the gardens were beautiful. Everyone from Chef John to the ladies and gentlemen who set up the tables and the food were so helpful and easy to work with. We had many comments from guests on how delicious the food was and what a beautiful place it was. The food is some of the best in the Twin Cities as evidenced by their many awards. I can't say enough about this lovely venue and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for an outdoor space for a wedding or gathering or an indoor event as well.

Go for mother's day brunch annually. Was the last year. Food is always good. It was better when it first opened now it is not much better then other small places. The cost is growing to high and kids 4 and up are 14 bucks which is way to high when a 4 year old only eats minimal food. We just have to many 4 to 5 year olds in family to make it worth while any more.

Very nice space for events.
