Perfect Venue for Us!

My fiance and I went to South Africa to get married, but wanted to have a reception for our friends and family back in Houston. The Rainbow Lodge was the absolute perfect venue. The manager, Tim Neely, was amazing...worked with us every step of the way. He literally answered... Read More every one of my annoying emails with a thousand questions. And we could not have been more satisfied with the staff the night of the reception! It has been almost a month and we are still hearing raving reviews about the food and staff!!! There was no venue rental fee becuase we reserved the entire restaurant. We just had to meet a minimum food/beverage spend, which was perfect for our budget!

Our wedding was held at the Rainbow Lodge on May 28, 2016. The Rainbow Lodge was a JOY to work with! We actually got married during my treatment for a brain tumor, and scheduled our ceremony to take place between my surgeries. The Lodge accommodated EVERY SINGLE REQUEST or...

The venue was PERFECT and the food was SPECTACULAR! Our event was just for immediate family – 35 people – but all of our family members remarked how fabulous our dinner was, and how outstanding the service was for our event! It is our plan to have our anniversary dinner at the Lodge EVERY SINGLE YEAR, as we KNOW it will be PERFECT!

Incredible evening at Rainbow Lodge

Reviewed on 6/16/2014 Helen L

We had a small family wedding and dinner at The Rainbow Lodge. Everything about the evening was incredible! A manager "Tim" helped us book the Orvis Room and we were given the room for the entire evening. We were charged $100 for holding the wedding ceremony there but outside... Read More of that, there was no venue fee. We just purchased dinner (off the menu) for ourselves and our guests. Cyrus was a great waiter. We were allowed to put up any decorations we wanted. We were able to use the grounds for pictures with our photographer. The food was just awesome. Cyrus helped with appetizer selection and wines. It was a spectacular room. It was private and intimate for just our family. The food and service was awesome. I would highly recommend the Rainbow Lodge. I know we will be back often.
