Thank you to Rocco and Manny a thousand times! My wife and I were married on June 1, 2013 and had our reception at Anthony's Lake Club in Danbury, CT. How do I put into words the greatness of this venue? To start, one year ago, we were ready to scrap the whole idea of a... Read More reception and just elope. Every place we looked at was very expensive and beautiful, or cheap and not so nice looking. We searched for months and finally came across Anthonys Lake Club and the Divine 99 offer. The website looked nice and the price was great so we set up a meeting with Rocco. We went up from Port Chester, NY and wow were we impressed! The hall is clean and beautiful, updated, brand new dance floor, and beautiful large back deck overlooking the lake. Rocco put us immediately at ease. He is very professional, pleasant, warm, and welcoming. He never tried to sell us on his place. He simply told us what he and his brother Manny were all about. After all of the other places we visited and the hidden fees and extra costs, we were very skeptical of the price. We were waiting for the other shoe to drop! But it never did! We got everything promised to us and more! The food! Unbelievable how great the food was! Rocco is an amazing chef! All fresh and delicious! He even had us up for family dinner night to try his cooking, on him! The menu that we had to choose from had plenty of options and he even threw in some extra appetizers! Everyone loved the food! We had the option of plated or buffet style. We had the buffet which was great because everyone was able to try everything! All delicious! Manny is the maitre d. Absolutely flawless night! We worried about nothing at all. Every need was anticipated and met quickly. He is incredibly friendly, professional, and fun! And their wait staff were a reflection of them! All pleasant, helpful, and efficient. We gave our full trust to Manny and he did not disappoint! We were able to enjoy the night worry free! The divine 99 plan is wonderful. Not just from the price aspect either. The dj and photographer that are included in the package work together on a consistent basis which helps ensure a smooth evening. Our pictures are beautiful and some of the best ones are at the venue! It is beautiful there! Finally, we must have called Rocco and Manny over half a dozen times leading up to the wedding with questions or concerns. They gave us their full attention and time. If a message was left for them, we received a callback almost immediately. Often we had repeat questions or forgot something they already told us and they were completely understanding and glad to help. They truly understand the stress of wedding planning and do all they can to keep you at ease. They were friends helping us with the wedding plans. We were never hounded for money. It was all about us and our wedding and ensuring that it was a perfect night! And it was! Forever, thank you Rocco and Manny!!!!!! All our love, Matt and Kelly Pagliughi


Dream Wedding

I cannot express enough how incredibly thankful I am for this place and for Manny & Rocco & their amazing staff! My fiance and I, in the early planning stages, were looking for a venue and after reading all of their incredible reviews, we chose to visit this one. From the... Read More first day we met them, they were wonderful, professional and completely affordable. We planned with the help of our amazing DJ (Spin Doctor Dave) a beautiful lit up bar outside on the patio. Unfortunately, it rained on our wedding night but that did not stop Manny, Rocco & Dave from making our night perfect. They creatively added the same decorations into our ballroom and it was more perfect than I could have imagined. Weddings are always overwhelming, especially if you are planning it all on your own, but I can honestly say, you'd be CRAZY not to book your venue with these guys! I am SO thankful we did. I never had to worry about anything. I know there are MANY reviews like this for them, and I'll be honest, in the beginning I was a little skeptical, how could one place be liked SO much? There has to be something wrong, right? Well, not one thing, not even one, went wrong. The night went so smoothly and EVERYONE had an incredible time. We haven't stopped hearing from all of our family and friends how this was the best wedding they've ever been to. And of course, the food, it was phenomenal. There were SO many appetizers and desserts and just, wow. They also have a package deal which I HIGHLY suggest. It includes the food, cake (that you design), DJ, photographer, open bar, chocolate fountain, bridal accommodations for the night and so much more. I could go on forever about how amazing this place is, and thankfully, they've given us many unforgettable memories. If you want the wedding of your dreams, THIS IS THE PLACE!

My husband and I got married here 2/26/17 and our day was just perfect. I have been to the venue for other events, and the recent renovations have given it a more elegant appearance.

When we were looking for a venue a big concern of mine was the ability to accommodate various dietary restrictions. All of my guests were fed and happy! They told me how great the food was. Anthony's also contracts with a bakery that was able to make my a tier of my cake allergy-friendly (for my moderate allergies), which is awesome because I am one of those people that can never eat cake at weddings! Manny and Rocco were always available for questions and meetings. I never had a problem with that, and I do know of brides who have had those problems with other venues. It was a great feeling on my wedding day to feel like everything was taken care of and that I didn't have to worry. I 100% recommend Anthony's Lake Club! It is a very classy place.

Choosing Anthony’s Lake Club was one of the best decisions we made during the wedding planning process. Their Divine wedding package is exactly that, divine. It includes a venue on the water, a DJ, a photographer, a rose bud vase on every table, an amazing meal, champagne toast,... Read More open bar, wedding cake, chocolate fountain, and a night in a hotel. Simply unbeatable! It took a lot of the stress off me and my husband knowing we didn’t need to worry about all those extras. Every review raves about the food for a reason, it’s fantastic. I still have people coming up to me telling me how much they loved it. The buffet is the way to go; your guests have the opportunity to try a little of everything. What I love most is that you get to work directly with the owners, brothers Rocco and Manny. On your wedding day they are the ones on site preparing the meal and directing the flow of the evening. They are very accommodating to special requests. Rocco made sure my guest with a food allergy received a specially made gluten-free meal. My husband and I wanted to do an elaborate garter removal skit and Manny helped make it happen. I highly recommend Anthony’s Lake Club to everyone. Between the thoughtful owners and their attentive staff, they made the day a very happy and memorable occasion.

My husband and I could not have been happier with having our October wedding at Anthony’s Lake Club. This place is wonderful from top to bottom. We went the Divine 99 package. It was perfect for us because it made for a stress free wedding planning. With just about everything... Read More included we only had minimal homework, which was fantastic because my husband and I both work a lot. Manny and Rocco were super helpful and accommodating, even with our crazy schedules to meet with us as often as needed. Manny organized the night and did a superb job. As the bride I didn’t have to worry about a thing, he directed us every step. We had the ceremony out on the deck which made for perfect pictures of the lake and fall foliage. The cocktail hour was wonderful, my husband and I even had time to join after pictures. This venue has wonderful spots to take wedding photos! The photographer we got with the package was also top notch. She was friendly, professional, and took the most stunning photos. Not to mention we had access to all of them not even 4 days later! The food was amazing, every item was delicious, served hot and looked fresh and tasty. We had many guests’ positive comments on the quality of the buffet! Rocco is an awesome chef. Manny even made sure that we ourselves got to eat. Our family and friends raved that everything was fresh, hot, and flavorful. They even accommodated many children with chicken tenders and fries, which was much appreciated. The kids gave them two thumbs up! The party was a night I’ll never forget. The DJ, Tony, who came with the package was outstanding! He got people up dancing we never thought would. His energy was contagious! The bakery that came with the package did a beautiful job on our wedding cake. Anthony’s wait staff were all so attentive, friendly, and professional. Half of our guests primarily Portuguese speaking which was no problem. Our DJ was able to translate and Antony’s accommodated everyone. It was by far the best night of our lives so far. Our family and friends were well taken care of by Anthony’s Lake Club. They all enjoyed themselves and have been talking about how much fun our wedding was for the past two weeks! I can’t thank Anthony’s enough for the attention to every detail throughout the reception. The employees worked closely with the photographer and DJ for each occurrence throughout the evening. Everything went off without a hitch or hiccup. We 110% recommend this to anyone looking for a venue. It will make your wedding planning easy and the wedding day will be absolutely perfect. Thank you! Muito obrigado! Alessandro and Melissa
