We held our wedding reception here in October 2009 and we are thrilled we chose BT! The food was top notch, the staff was so accommodating, and our guests just RAVED about the location. Marlene was a doll to work with and highly available for any questions or concerns. We have not heard one bad thing about the reception and we don't expect that we will!
The hall comfortably seats about 168 (21 tables of 8); we had 195 in attendance at our reception (some tables of 10). Regardless, we did not have any complaints about guests feeling "squished" at tables or not having room to move between tables. The staff was able to configure the hall so that each and every person was comfortable and enoying themselves. There were two bartenders that staffed the bar and they did a great job with making sure the bar line was never more than two deep!
(With the plated dinner or family style options, the bar does close for an hour during dinner so that the bartenders can help with serving dinner. )
We did family style for our dinner and our guests just raved about the amount of food and the quality of it. My uncle told me he never even picked up a knife to cut his roast beef or chicken - it was so tender he could use his fork for everything! My younger brother (football player) was also estatic that he could order another plate of roasted potatoes just for him!
I would highly, HIGHLY recommend this location for receptions or showers, as it a beautiful location and priced much more reasonably than their local competitors (we really did our research as we paid for the wedding ourselves).
This is a five star recommendation from an A-type personality bride! You will not be disappointed with your event at Burning Tree!
