Me and my husband are extremely happy with everything Michaud's had done for us! With only 3 months until our wedding our previous caterer and venue went out of business and left us with no reception hall or catering for our big day, but Michaud's was very accommodating and extremely understanding and luckily had a hall in the venue available for rental for our wedding date. Staff was extremely helpful and very nice,the food was delicious and we had a great time! Also everyone loved our bartender. I would highly recommend the Michaud's to anyone in need of a venue for party or event.

We were a very budget conscious couple and immediately knew the moment we entered Michauds that we had found an elegant alternative to the other ballrooms that were double the price. We decided on the grand ballroom and was sold by the super friendly staff, they were very accommodating and made our event a dream!
Reception Venue reviewReviewed on 8/03/2013 Cathy
Our reception at Michaud's was wonderful! They have great food, the staff was always friendly and helpful, and our room was beautiful - the grande ballroom. We would definitely recommend Michaud's.
I was 100% pleased with Michaud's. We had both our ceremony and reception here november 2015. I was nervous to not have our ceremony at a church but the clarion room turned out better than I ever could have imagined. My only complaint was that we had to clean up the ceremony directly after because someone had a ceremony 2 hours after ours. My brother in law did it thank goodness. The reception was in the regency room and I was very pleased with that as well. The staff was so helpful in setting up and helping us tear down. The waiters seemed eager to help (we had family style at the head table) I have never had better waiter service. Some older man, he was great. The whole process before the wedding was a breeze as well. They are super affordable and I would personally recommend them to anyone!
We had our wedding and reception at Michauds on June 26th, 2016. It was absolutely beautiful and beyond my wildest dreams. We want to thank their staff for the amazing food and for accommodating all of our needs.
I would highly recommend Michaud's for a busy bride who wants the total package. About the only thing they don't provide is the cake. They'll set your room up if you want to have your ceremony there. They have great food and a large selection. They even have a staff member who is an officiant if you need one! And just about EVERY vendor has worked there and is familiar with the place, because they've just been around so long. Michaud's was helpful every step of the way during our year and a half of wedding planning. They are the experts, and you are in good hands! Our ceremony and reception was great. The staff was attentive and all of our guests had a great time. I am very glad we chose them!
Amazing.Reviewed on 12/03/2015 Jessica H
Michaud's truly helped make my wedding the best day of my life. The hall was gorgeous and comfortably fit all of my guests (156). The staff was fun, lively, and extremely helpful whenever someone asked. If I had to do the whole day over again, I would definitely use Michaud's.
Great Facility!!!Reviewed on 9/17/2015 Cynthia B
We had our ceremony and reception here and they worked with us through everything. We changed rooms, made countless appointments to go over things, and they were there every step of the way. Doris did the officiating (she works at Michaud's) and she was wonderful. It rained for our outdoor ceremony and they have a back up plan for that but we ended up getting married in the rain anyways! The staff was very helpful through the entire reception and even helped us pack up some of the centerpieces and things at the end of the night. One staff member (can't remember if it was Donna or Debbie) even helped us when we were setting up the night before. She gave tips and lended items that were needed. Overall, wonderful experience. They also have at least 9 different rooms to choose from to have your reception in :)
Michaude's Towne and Country Wedding ReceptionReviewed on 6/24/2015 Lori K
This past weekend 6-20-2015, our daughter and Son in Law were married, and our choice venue was Michaud's Town and Country, the Grand Ball Room. As the mother of the bride, I want to say how exceptionally nice the reception was. Michaud’s staff from beginning to end were magnificent. I truly mean this, from two years ago when we booked the event to the final moments of cleaning up the hall with all our personal touches added to the tables. Many times, once the payment is secured to book an event or venue and there is no turning back or you will lose your deposit, suddenly the staff don’t seem so friendly and helpful. This was not the case with Michaud’s. They always led us in the right direction, and anytime me or my husband called for advice or questions, they were always so hospitable and provided us with the needed answers. Most often, their response was, “Don’t worry, we take care of that”. The day before the wedding when a group of us went in to add the final touches to the hall, it was so nice to see it pretty much set up with all the tables decorated nicely. Debbie, our hostess and staff manager was with us every step of the way. She was extremely kind and took the stress off any situation. Finally at the end of the night, I personally, got stressed knowing we had only about a half hour to collect all our belongings. I couldn't imagine how we would do this in such a short time. There again, Debbie was so helpful and patient with us. Even moving all our centerpieces and things to one table. I really don’t know when they did it, as it seemed I stepped out of the room for a moment, only to return and find them all there collected at one table as she said. This was also the same with lighting all the candles and turning on all the mini lights in the centerpieces, and lighting around the table. I suggested they start at 3p.m. the day of the wedding, she assured me that they could start at 5 p.m. and get it all done before the guest arrive. She and her staff sure did. To walk in to such an eloquent Ball room, made us all feel so special. The food was excellent, too. Our daughter’s wedding looked like something that only the rich and famous can afford, and yet we were able to afford it, as Michaud’s do not Nickle and dime its customers. Their menu is top notch and you don’t have to break the bank to have an eloquent wedding. All the guest I spoke with commented to me how gorgeous the hall was, and it was a “perfect” wedding. That term “perfect wedding” was said several times over that night. Looking back, I can truly agree with them. I would recommend Michaud’s to anyone planning an event, and particularly a big wedding as we did. Thank you so much for your hospitality and attention to detail. Sincerely, Lori Kaloger
Wedding 2015Reviewed on 6/24/2015 Narkita B
Doris helped out tremendously with making accommodations for my wedding. I think staff was pleasant and the venue was beautiful, however I hated the food. This was the same venue my High School used for prom, and the food wasn't great then and its certainly not great now. I we chose Michaud's because of location, and price. My thought was maybe the Chef changed or had gotten better over time and I thought wrong. The food that they allow you to try at their bridal show was okay, but that wasn't realistic to our wedding day menu choice. Michaud's is a stickler with their venue in regards to up lighting, and hanging things. Overall experience was good, food not so good.
Overall, not too shabbyReviewed on 8/17/2014 Lizz R
All in all, fantastic venue! We were really excited to share our day here, as this venue has a sentimental meaning for my husband and myself. Loved everything except for the people that worked our event. When we got there, the did not finish setting up-I had to personally go around and light my candles! Thankfully, my mother in law was able to help me out! They also wouldn't allow the bridal party to get drinks at all before the guests arrived.The woman working told me that I would have to pay her extra to get a drink 15 minutes early... Last time I checked, we paid you to be there, and we also supplied all of our own alcohol! But, when push comes to shove, still a fantastic environment to spend an evening with those closest to you. We had the Holiday room, which features a whole wall of windows that faces the courtyard. Its the only room of that stature in the venue.. It was perfect for a fall evening!

We had an amazing experience at Michauds! The people there were friendly and helpful from the beginning and it only got better on the day of our wedding. You get a banquet manager included in the price you pay, ours was Debbie, and she was wonderful. The service my husband and I, our bridal party, our parents and grandparents received at our reception was far better than anything I had ever experienced being a part of other bridal parties with receptions elsewhere. They listens to the requests we made for our reception both before and during the reception and always followed through. The price is reasonable, and you really get such a great experience for what you pay for. The food is very good, restrooms are clean, and we received a lot of positive comments about the venue from our guests. We are very happy we chose Michaud's!
Wonderful Fun WeddingReviewed on 6/03/2014 Jennifer

Michaud's was great!Reviewed on 8/27/2013 Taylor L
Doris and Chuck were really great to work with. They were always helpful and were quick to respond to any questions. The night of the wedding went really well. All the staff was friendly and helpful. Michaud's is super budget friendly and the money we paid was well worth it!
Awesome!Reviewed on 8/02/2013 Kara W
From the minute we came into Michaud's they made everything so easy. Their friendliness professionalism made the entire process fun. The entire wedding ran smooth, the food was delicious, and the servers/bartenders were very efficient. Michaud's pricing is without any hidden fees. Several other vendors would have a 'per person' price, but then you are required to pay gratuity and taxes after that total. Not with Michauds, the 'per person' price included everything. Miachauds also allows you to bring in your own alcohol, or none at all. This makes it so you can cater to your guests and budget! I would strongly recommend this location to anyone getting married, I know both my husband, myself, and our guests were very pleased. They made our wedding day wonderful!
Loved every minute!Reviewed on 1/15/2013 Molly M

Dubonnet RoomReviewed on 10/23/2012 Angela S
They messed one of my entrees up for 189 people and made NO ATTEMPT to correct the situation or reimburse us.
loved it!Reviewed on 9/16/2012 Lauren M
I loved the ballroom and I loved the food. I really wish they would let you take your food home at the end of the night as most places do but thats really the only complaint. Price was great.
BeautifulReviewed on 8/16/2012 Amanda T
Michaud's was very accommodating but a little strict on decorating rules. Our reception was beautiful! The food wasn't as good as I was hoping for but the servers were excellent! I would recommend them to other brides.

The food was very good and so was the service. The room we were promised was the room we had.
Beautiful, great service and valueReviewed on 10/18/2011 Amanda T
We had a great experience at Michaud's. We didn't run into other wedding guests like I had anticipated. The food was great and it's a great value because you bring in your own alcohol. The courtyard was beautiful for our ceremony as well.
Very Happy!!!!Reviewed on 8/27/2011 Sara T
We had our wedding on 7/23/11 with the ceremony in the Clarion Room and the reception in the Holiday Room. We were a little unsure before we saw it because it seemed much more reasonable than a lot of the venues we had looked at but we both walked out thinking we had found the place. Both rooms were great! I was not sure how much could be done with a small banquet room to make it look nice for the ceremony but they did a great job. We were thrilled when we saw it. The service was wonderful. We had a buffet with prime rib being freshly carved and there was never a concern of the food running out (which is something I'd experienced as a guest elsewhere). The staff was very helpful both leading up to and on the day of the wedding. We would definitely recommend it!
PerfectReviewed on 6/28/2011 Mallory G
Thank you to Michaud's for taking care of our wedding. My husband and I ended up having a few extenuating circumstances, and they were ready and willing to help. All servers were fantastic as well as the bar staff! Thank you.
