I highly recommend this facility because of the professionalism and friendliness of the personnel. Everyone was extremely helpful and efficient. My son's and daughter-in-law's wedding went VERY smoothly. We came down from Cleveland for the weekend, so I was a little stressed out that we would forget something, but Lisa put me right at ease. We were in good hands. The staff took such good care of us from beginning to end. During the event, Lisa did so many things for us without being asked - mostly behind the scenes stuff, so we could just relax and enjoy ourselves. Our (approx. 160) guests all remarked on what a nice place it was. If I could give higher than a 5 for responsiveness and flexibility, I would. I am very grateful, especially to Lisa. She was wonderful! But also, I was impressed by EVERY worker there that afternoon, during set-up and throughout the evening. Even after the evening was over, during cleanup, people were nice to us. We never felt pushed or rushed. They all worked together so well, cooperating with each other. Everyone knew his or her job - like a well-oiled machine, always working quickly and quietly. What a great group of people. If you like to work with easy-going people who know what they are doing, then you should choose this place.

The venue was awesome! Plenty of space for our guests not to feel cramped at all. I own ohio pro dj, and as a wedding professional, picking a venue was super important for us. The entire staff took care of our every need. And, let us in super early as we had a huge dj setup with lighting etc...
The price was very reasonable, the food was awesome, and the bar staff was fun!
Again, as a wedding professional myself, I would highly recommend this venue to anyone!

Both Katie & Kaitlyn were very responsive to answering all the questions I had right up until our wedding day; even when I felt like I was asking the silliest things :) Our event captain, I believe her name was Lisa, did a great job on the day-of to make sure things were running on schedule and as I had envisioned. We were on a tight budget and Makoy was able to accommodate our day-time wedding on a Saturday to keep us within what I wanted to spend. Everyone loved the food (we did a fruit display for our guests while we were taking pictures & the pizza buffet for our meal) and despite what everyone says about brides & grooms not eating during their wedding, the Makoy Center staff made sure we had plates waiting for us at our table and we were the first in line for food. Our wedding day was a success and Makoy was definitely instrumental in making it a very special day for us!

The Makoy Center was amazing to work with, they did such an amazing job the day of the wedding. The staff is extremely professional professional and the food was amazing as well, we had several comments regarding the food and the venue and how well everything is run.

We hosted our daughter's wedding reception in The Emerald Room. It couldn't have been better. The room is beautiful and roomy with a stage for the bridal party table, large dance floor, full size bar, and round guest tables. You just have to see it. Oh, and a large Ladies Room!
Kaitlyn and the rest of the staff made sure that everything went as planned. There was nothing that I asked for that Kaitlyn didn't reply "Yes, we can do that". She responded quickly to e-mails and phone calls.
The Makoy Center staff had everything set up perfectly when we arrived. The staff working the night of our event were very professional,friendly, easy to find if needed, and quickly responded to any requests.
The price was comparable to a few other venues around the Columbus area but we got so much more at the Makoy Center. For instance, white table linens, real silverware, glass wine and water glasses, table skirting, chair covers at the bridal party table, and the use of hurricane globes/candles/mirrors as centerpieces. Other places charge extra for these items.
If you are planning a reception you owe it to yourself to check out this place.

We - initially - booked The Makoy Center due to it being a central location between all our family & friends. We got so much more than we bargained for, though.
Kaitlyn & Katie, (in the office), were professional & attentive & ALWAYS available to answer questions. They were very helpful & thorough when it came to explaining pricing & details surrounding the rehearsal & wedding.
As for the event staff: they were absolutely top-notch! Lisa kept things rolling smoothly. She attended our rehearsal & rolled with the punches when I made a couple last minute changes to the processional.
I was a little worried at the appearance of the Burgundy Room the night of the rehearsal but, the day of our wedding, they had transformed it into a beautiful, elegant environment. The room was breathtaking.
We let them cater the reception & the food was outstanding! We received numerous comments from our guests about how delicious the dinner was. Food is a make or break item at any wedding; so I was very glad our guests were pleased!
I just cannot say enough good things about The Makoy Center. They helped make our day magical & we cannot thank them enough.
Located in scenic Old Hilliard, the Makoy Center offers affordable elegance for your special day. For dinner events from 30 to 500, with three event spaces including large central dance floors and ample free parking, we provide professional services to cover every detail.
