My husband and I were very impressed with our experience with Megan at the Cricket Club. The venue was amazing and the process was so easy. Megan was professional and practical in helping with the arrangements so that we could enjoy the day and not worry about the details. The room was gorgeous, the food was outstanding (even two years later, I still think its the best steak that I have had at a wedding), and the staff was wonderful. As a special aside, I have a relative with MS who relies on a wheelchair - the staff went out of their way to accommodate her needs, to make sure that she was able to enjoy every part of the event. I would not hesitate to recommend it to any of my friends.
We had an amazing wedding at the Philadelphia Cricket Club. The food, service, atmosphere, staff and overall experience was outstanding. Megan Freeman, the banquet manager, is very nice to deal with and her follow up is excellent! We chose to bring in a florist/event planner, Petah Bashano, that Megan recommended who did an amazing job helping us with flowers, décor, linens, etc. We could not have been happier with the overall experience at the Club!

Our wedding at the Philadelphia Cricket Club was absolutely perfect. It was a dream working with the coordinator, Megan and everyone else who worked at the Cricket Club. The service was amazing. They made everything so easy for us and were accessible during the entire planning process and especially on the wedding day. Megan really helped make our dream day a reality. We had our ceremony at the PCC as well outside and it was the perfect setting. I have no complaints at all, it was truly an amazing day.
From the second we walked into the Philadelphia Cricket Club we knew we wanted to get married there. It is a beautiful venue! We got married outside and were able to have cocktail hour outside. Everything turned out beautifully! It was great to work with Megan and Rose, they answered all of my questions and helped to make sure the day ran smoothly. The food was also delicious and so were the seasonal desserts. We were a little disappointed that our signature drink ran out at cocktail hour and that we were promised a champagne toast, to find the glasses were removed from the table before the reception. Other than those small things, we were overall very pleased. We started working with Megan and when she was out for a couple months, Rose stepped in, answered all of our questions and was a pleasure to work with too! Everyone who works there was helpful and welcoming and we highly recommend it for any wedding or party.
My husband and I are thrilled that we selected Philadelphia Cricket Club as the venue for our wedding reception- between the staff, the service, the food and the beautiful ballroom, it really made for the perfect spot. Megan & Rose were both so wonderful to work with throughout the process- so accommodating & responsive. I also think the ballroom itself is absolutely beautiful- it comfortably housed our ~200 guests and lent itself perfectly to a night full of fun and dancing. Although it rained a bit on our day, the grounds are also beautiful and made for a stunning backdrop to photos. I would absolutely recommend it to any bride looking for a classic and beautiful venue. Wish we could do it all over again!
When looking for venues for my July wedding, I wanted a unique space with an outdoor element that would still be comfortable for all my guests no matter what weather we ended up having. After looking at 10+ venues, the Philadelphia Cricket Club, with their early 20th century ballroom, was the clear top pick, especially after we sampled their amazing food.
Throughout the planning, Megan was very responsive and helpful, always making me feel that my detailed queries into different options were totally fine, even when I decided against them. Rose did a fabulous job executing on the day of my wedding, with everything I requested being set up as discussed! And again, I have to say that the food was delicious (my husband and I did taste everything that day). I highly recommend the Philadelphia Cricket Club--you won't be disappointed!
Loved the Philadelphia Cricket Club for my wedding venue. It was absolutely everything I dreamed of - the space looked phenomenal during the ceremony and during the reception. The staff was so attentive and kind.
I'd like to take a moment to acknowledge Megan Freeman, the Director of Catering there. She is an all-star, definitely knows her craft and does a fantastic job! The day of the wedding she was there the entire time, making sure everything went off without a hitch, which it did! She cared about my experience and helped to make my day so special and one to remember.
For any girl that wants to feel like a princess, I DEFINITELY recommend PCC. Their ballroom is so elegant, especially with the stairs that you have to walk down when you first enter! I really eludes to the grand entrance every bride dreams of!
Thank you to Megan and the entire staff at PCC for making my wedding day so very special!
We had looked at a few other venues before visiting the Philadelphia Cricket Club. My husband had come across its website and we decided to make an appointment. We fell in love with the Cricket Club almost immediately. It has an historic feel and old school charm, mixed with modern décor along with outdoor space overlooking the tennis/cricket courts for cocktail hour. The venue was an ideal match for us and had just the atmosphere we were looking for to hold our wedding reception. Everyone we came in contact with at the Cricket Club was welcoming, friendly, and informative and made us feel at ease. It was obvious from the beginning that the staff took pride in the PCC events. They anticipated our needs and worked hard to create a pleasurable experience for us. Megan Freeman, our main contact, was extremely patient with all of our inquiries (and changes) and always eager to meet with us and provide advice and expertise. Rose was equally attentive and always there to provide a helping hand and support. I was happy to discover that on the night of our reception, both managers were even on site overseeing the event, helping with last minute touches on the set up and decorations and guiding us through the night’s schedule (even down to when we were lining up to be announced). We didn’t have to worry about a thing! We had two dinner entrées and our guests complemented us on both the appetizers and dinner selections. Everything seemed to be timed perfectly and our night seemed flawless. We could not have asked for a more enjoyable experience. If we could do our wedding all over again we would definitely choose the Philadelphia Cricket Club! Thank you to everyone who took part in planning our special day and making our wedding reception a memorable, perfect night!
August 2013 wedding
We were thrilled with our daughter's wedding at the Philadelphia Cricket Club. From our first meeting with Megan to the end of the evening itself every detail was taken care of. During the planning Megan was so easy to work with. She wanted us to have what we envisioned but where we asked for her ideas she was extremely helpful. I really enjoyed working with her, and Rose especially because she always returned emails and phone calls so quickly.
Our guests shared many times that the servers were gracious and attentive. They loved the food and even having a large number of guests, it was served on time and hot. As for value -everything we were told would be included was and everything we were promised was delivered.
The value of gracious hospitality, attention to detail, and professionaism is priceless!
