Whether they're looking for an outdoor wedding or an indoor reception, the property will not disappoint. Couples are welcome to invite up to 250 guests to help them celebrate their big day.
This space is both classy and beautiful with its gorgeous chandeliers that hang above elegantly decorated tables. There's a fireplace that serves as the focal point of the room and a dance floor for getting your bridal party moving and grooving.

Great venueReviewed on 9/04/2012 Parry M
They were great! Very helpful, lovely ballroom and grounds.
We had our wedding at Shannopin in August. I am a surgical resident and I was working 80+ hour weeks when planning my wedding. Jacquie, the coordinator at Shannopin, was absolutely amazing. She went above and beyond to make sure my day was perfect. The food was good- the staff was helpful. We were very pleased overall and we'd do it the same over again. A++
Pittsburgh VenueReviewed on 7/05/2014 Rachael W
A great place to have a reception. The dining space is beautiful and includes a patio space with a view of the golf course and the city in the distance. The food was excellent and the wedding coordinator Jacquie was awesome to work with. There was not one detail that we were not happy with.
One of the best venues in Pittsburgh!Reviewed on 6/03/2014 Lauren L
We just had our wedding at Shannopin Country Club. Jacquie the Banquet Director made sure everything was done to perfection. The food, the view, the overall experience was five star quality. We had people coming up telling us this is one of the best weddings they have ever been too. Would recommend using this venue to anyone who wants a classy, beautiful wedding. Thank you to Jacquie and staff for a wonderful day!!!
Not worth the driveReviewed on 3/24/2014 Elizabeth W
To start we did not end up choosing Shannopin as our venue for one main reason...Jacquie. I scheduled an appointment to meet with her after a few emails to see the venue and discuss different options. From the minute we arrived for our appointment she made us feel like we were wasting her time. She did not ask anything about we what we were looking for, our budget or anything. When we asked her questions the answers we got were short and not helpful...ex. Are any of your plated dinner options particularily popular? Answer: No, its about what the bride and groom want. Every other venue we visited could at least tell us some of their more popular items. She did bring any materials to the meeting such as a menu or pricing. We were there for less than 15 minutes and felt like we were being pushed out the door the entire time. Do not waste your time here.
Rain didn't ruin our dayReviewed on 11/06/2013 Sabrina
Everything was perfect!!!!!except the rain of course, but that's good luck right? Jacquie and her team were fantastic! The service team was attentive and fun. The culinary team knocked it out of the park! This wasn't typical " banquet" food it was all delicious and hot and moist. Perfect! Great job team!!!!
A great venue all around!Reviewed on 10/13/2013 Mallory
We had our wedding at Shannopin in August, and everything was absolutely perfect! Jacquie and her staff went above and beyond to make sure our day was exactly as we envisioned. We didn't worry about anything that day because we knew we were in good hands, Jacquie does an amazing job and is on top of everything. When we walked into the ballroom for our introduction, we were blown away by how beautiful it looked (especially the mantle). The food was delicious, our guests continue to rave about it- we frequently hear it was the best food they've eaten at a wedding. Shannopin also offers an incredible view of the Pittsburgh skyline, which served as the perfect backdrop to our outdoor wedding.
