About Us

Chandler's Chophouse and Grille is located on the scenic grounds of the Schaumburg Golf Club in Schaumburg, Illinois. The setting is ideal for couples planning large, medium or small weddings as it has a variety of attractive indoor and outdoor event spaces. The northwest Chicagoland area location makes it convenient to I-90 and I-290 and the five main indoor event spaces accommodate any style of wedding theme.

Chandler's Chophouse and Grille allows you to have your ceremony at several locations on the grounds with golf course management approval. There is one designated outdoor ceremony space and several indoor ceremony spots you may use for your vow exchange prior to your reception or banquet:

Outdoor Gazebo Ceremony Site. This setting is on a beautiful garden patio with a water feature backdrop. Your ceremony takes place under a sturdy white gazebo. Up to 200 guests may be seated here.

Grand Ballroom. The 5,000-square-foot ballroom is decorated with exposed brick, 30-foot coffered and vaulted ceilings, ornate carpet and a subdued color palette to work with any wedding colors. Two-story picture windows and decorative chandeliers bring light into the space. This venue accommodates up to 350 seated and 600 for a cocktail-only reception. The space splits off into the Augusta Room, Torrey Pines Room and St. Andrew's Rooms, which each hold 75 to 100 guests. A dance floor and outer foyer give guests room to mingle and socialize.

Pebb le Beach Room. With 2,400 square feet of space and similar decor as the Grand Ballroom, this venue has a lower ceiling but plenty of windows and light fixtures. There is a great deal of flexibility in the space, which seats 200 for a ceremony or serves up to 320 for a standing reception. The adjoining Pebble Foyer offers more space with stone accents, a balcony and leather seating.

Atrium. This event space has three walls of windows including a sunroom-type space with a vaulted glass ceiling. Windows overlook flower beds, the patio and the split-rail-fenced grounds. Geometric-print carpeting, rich wood and stone accents give this space an inviting warmth. There is room here for 50 to 90 guests.

Words can't even describe how awesome our reception turned out thanks to Gineane and all the staff at Chandler's. We wanted to do unique out of the box ideas and everytime we would contact Gineane with them she not only ran with the idea but helped inspire us. Even now a month... Read More later our guests are still commenting on how wonderful the night was. Every bite of food was delicious! No one went home hungry that is for sure! When we had our tasting we brought a few people with and they were raving for months about how awesome the food was and they couldn’t wait for the reception. Gineane is so detail oriented and was always quick to respond to every email. At no time did we ever feel pressured to do anything or spend more then we wanted. Gineane was right by our side to help us with every detail (even to make sure that my bridesmaids were able to bustle my dress correctly). It was wonderful to know that we never had any worries when it came to the reception, it could’t have been better anywhere else!

From the moment we dropped by unannounced to see this venue we were treated like their best customers. We met with Gineane, who I think was about to go on a lunch break at the time, but instead she spent an hour showing us all the options if we went with Chandler's for our... Read More wedding, and after checking dates and packages we basically signed right then and there. And this was only the second place we visited. Over the next 8-9 months we worked with Gineane in person and via email on more details than we knew existed when planning a wedding, and that's why she was the best! She is so attentive, such fun to work with, and didn't give us a single thing to question; we knew she and Chandler's would make all our wedding dreams come to fruition.

Loved the venue and how beautiful they made it for our day. Gineane was helpful from start to finish. We received many great compliments on the food. The only disappointment was the speed of service during dinner, they must have had something going on in the kitchen that night,... Read More our entree didn’t hit the tables until around 9pm. Be aware anything you bring in, they will want you to take home that night after your wedding... not generally a big deal unless you had large items like we did and no car.

9/15/2017 Wedding day went sooo much better than I thought it would. Dealt with Gineane, who in all honesty, is the main reason we chose to have our wedding at Chandlers, Schaumburg golf course. Just talking to Gineane for 2 min I felt like she was a family friend. The bonus... Read More was the view that came with chandlers and the gorgeous gazebo to get married under, if not done in a church. Of course nothing can ever go perfect and there are always hiccups but honestly I didn't even worry about it because of Gineane. Didn't even no anything happened or went wrong until after the wedding and by then it didn't even matter cause it was over and done with and no one even noticed. The room was set up beautifully and just more than i could have imagined. You don't really notice anything when you are the bride and groom because so much is going on, but being shown pictures of my room and how it was decorated, at 1st I was thinking wow that room is so pretty thats what we should have done not realizing it was actually MY room. We also got the best surprise of our life because originally we had booked the upstairs pebble room, smaller in size but i was only having about 150 people coming so the room size was perfect. About 2 months before the wedding when you are just completely drained and in panic mode we went to one of our last final appointments. Right before our appointment ended Gineane told us she had a little surprise for us. There was an event that had booked one of the smaller size downstairs rooms but the party was growing in size and she asked if we wouldnt mind moving our wedding party downstairs to the Augusta Grand Ballroom no additional charge. Originally that was the room I really wanted but with the amount of people I was having there was no point in spending the extra $. It was just amazing that they offered that room to us. The food was absolutely amazing. We had the chandlers mixed grill which was grilled chicken and a sirloin steak with garlic mashed potatoes and garlic broccoli. Came with soup fresh rolls and salad. SOOOO many people complimented me on the food and how they have been to many many weddings and this was the best food they have ever had at a wedding. The cake was included in the package and seriously WOW. ordered it from the baking institute and not even Gineane could believe that he cake i had was actually included. Not only was it absolutely gorgeous it was delicious as well. Before Gineane saw The cake she asked if we had a cake topper and I told her no. She did not look to thrilled that I said no topper because really that pulls the cake together. After she saw the cake she then came up to me and said she understands why I'd didnt want a topper. The amount of detail on the cake would have been washed out if there was a topper. The bartenders were great and took such good care of my bridal party. Like really good care of them. The DJ we got is the one recommended by chandlers and just gets added to your bill. Had Marty as my DJ from America's Best DJ and their company name did not let us down. By far best DJ i have ever seen. Also got their photobooth as well which was amazing. So many props came with it and really had the best clarity when printing out the pictures. DJs either make or break a wedding. At all times there were crowds of ppl on the dance floor. Not once was the dance floor ever left with less than 40 people on it. Just perfect. Everything

It sounds so cliche, but I really really can't say enough good things about Chandler's! Working with Gineane and staff, I truly got the dream wedding I always wanted! Gineane made it both fun and easy during the planning process leading up to the big day. She always reminded us... Read More to take pictures of things like the cake and dinner tasting and make memories of it versus making it another task to check off our to-do list. Gineane also was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about any questions we had about planning and gave great recommendations if it wasn't something Chandler's wasn't able to provide. She was also a great unbiased voice when we disagreed on certain things. Above the staff being excellent, everything on our wedding day was perfect! The atmosphere and scenery were great both indoors and outdoor, the food and drink were excellent as well! The whole ambiance of our wedding was so romantic and it was all thanks to Chandler's great job setting up the decorating. The staff was also extremely friendly during the whole day. I would definitely recommend Chandler's for any friend's or family's upcoming wedding. Beautiful and the best of 2017!

"WOW!!!!!" "Most beautiful ceremony" "fantastic food" "amazing reception" "great lighting and sound" "OMG A MASHED POTATO BAR!!!" "best wedding I have ever been to hands down!" 4 weeks after our wedding and these are still the daily comments rolling in from our guests. We... Read More planned our wedding within 6months and from San Diego. A challenging feat to embark on, but Gineane is the best. Fun hidden fact, not only do you get the space and amazing food, you get Gineane. She is a wedding planning Goddess! She makes sure that every aspect of the wedding will be perfect for every single individual and covers the bases you didn't know needed to be covered. Because of Chicago weather, we chose to do an indoor wedding, and had nothing but amazing reviews. We had our ceremony and reception in the main ballroom (rooms A and B) and around 150 guests. We somehow still were adding on items to meet are already low food and beverage minimum. So we were able to make sure our guests had a great time before, during the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, reception and beyond! The room has built in lighting and there is additional lighting that you can add on to truly make your room look magnificent and change the ambience from ceremony to reception. Chandler's is also on a golf course which work out amazingly for the Bride and Groom to sneak away for some post-ceremony photos on the golf course! They are also centrally located within a mile of hotels. We had our block at the Wingate which provided a free shuttle to and from Chandler's, and right next door (literally feet away) is a Country Inn. The ladies prepped there (where there is a stunning stairwell for first look pictures and patio also great for first look) and the guys got ready at the Wingate (so the bride wouldn't be seen by any guests naturally). There are great photo locations in the area. They partner with America's Best DJ and Marty is amazing. Thank you for everything Chandler's, Gineane, Marty and everyone who has written great reviews about Chandler's they are a hidden gem and nothing short of top notch!

We held our wedding and reception at this venue while working with Gineane. My wife and I are somewhat unorganized people so having Gineane on board with us was a life saver. She not only helped us with things related to the venue, but kept us on track with all wedding related... Read More tasks. She had great communication and was very pleasant. The wedding went perfectly, the food, the bar, and the decorations were great. The first thing I said when I woke up was, "can we do that again." It was the best day of my life and I would do it all over again the exact same way. We did have the smaller venue of the two they offer upstairs, which was cool because we had the whole floor to ourselves. The other venue is so far to the other side of the building, you never even notice another wedding is going on. That venue is beautiful as well with great picture spots. We also had our wedding in February so I can't imagine how much better and more beautiful it would be during the summer using the golf course. Overall, I would definitely recommend this venue to anyone else who wants to have an awesome wedding at an affordable price. Thanks again Gineane!

I had my wedding here September 2016. We worked with Gineane and she was wonderful. She was so helpful and always responded back to me promptly. We had an outdoor ceremony and our reception was upstairs in the pebble beach room. I was a little annoyed at the fact we could not... Read More take pictures on the golf course unless you pay a $500 fee (you get $250 back) and only the bride and groom can go, we didn't even bother with that. Our ceremony was beautiful and the weather was amazing. I didn't care for the fact we had to walk next to our guests versus down a middle aisle. The pebble beach room was also beautiful a little tight but it was fine. The food was good but not as good as our tasting (filet and chicken), but I'd have to say better than most wedding food. Also at the end of the night you had to take all your belonging with you, not come back the next day... Mind you we didn't have a car and we were staying at a hotel, luckily we had a family member take everything that night. Overall it was a good experience, fairly priced and I would highly recommend chandlers for a wedding. Even with a few hiccups, no wedding will be perfect... but I think mine was damn near close.
