We were looking for a venue that had a quick availability. We had 5 months before our wedding date to find a venue. We did what every couple does; googled wedding venues in our area. We drove by Banquets of MN to see what it looked like before ...
making a phone call.
It looks like a warehouse building on the outside and so at first we were like no way. So, we toured one other place and we decided to give Banquets a call.
When we got inside, we were wowed. Each ballroom was beautiful! From the lighted ceilings to to the floors. We met with Leslie and she was wonderful. She was knowledgeable, pleasant, always engaging, and very responsive. She was also very organized which made my job easy.
They offered a tasting night which allowed us to get a grasp of what we would be serving our guests. We chose two dishes from that night even though we didn’t have to.
When it came time for the wedding, Leslie and the staff were super pleasant and friendly. Still very organized and they were always available for questions. My kiddo was having a rough time beforehand and everyone went with the flow when it came to him and what his role was.
The food was served hot and on time. We got a lot of compliments on this.
We actually had a perfect wedding. Nothing went wrong leading up to and on the day of. We got a ton of compliments on the staff and the venue.
We did a unique father/daughter dance and a few staff members came up to me and told me that they were in tears and they had never seen that done before. This was really a highlight because it showed they were engaged with us.
We would HIGHLY recommend using Banquets of MN for any of your party needs. They don’t do just weddings. They do surprise parties, sports banquets, etc.
We couldn’t have been happier with their services.

They also have so many established relationships with cake, DJ, photo booth, and hotel vendors that the rest of your wedding planning essentially is done.
They have two spaces - one larger and one smaller. At first I was worried about them having two weddings at once but to be honest we didn't even notice the other party so it felt completely private.
If you are on the fence about anything, absolutely book the Banquets. You will not be disappointed. We weren't and I fully believe that the Banquets was central to us having the best day of our lives. Thank you to Leslie and the amazing wonderful staff at Banquets.

We had a great time tasting their food selections at a tasting and the night of the event, everything was delicious and we received many compliments about the food selections. The staff kept the food well stocked and were very helpful to the guests as they came up for their food.
The 2 bridal party rooms were clean and comfortable with plenty of room for a big party and nice dressing tables and mirrors for preparation.
The staff at banquets were very kind and patient on the night of the reception - even when when things didn't go just as planned and we made some mistakes with our seating chart. They were wonderful and we felt like they would take care of us and quickly fixed the tables where we needed seating adjusted.
The accessories for the tables and the linens were high quality and beautiful. We also had an ice sculpture which added an amazing highlight to our serving area.
In the months leading up to the reception, Leslie Lind, Event Coordinator, was wonderful. She helped us so much and kept us right on track with our timeline with perfect suggestions to make it a magical evening. Dan also did a lot of work to pull all of the details together so that nothing was forgotten.
The value of our reception for the very reasonable price was perfect and we are so glad that we used Banquets of Minnesota for our very memorable evening!

It is like having a wedding planner without the extra cost of one. Her response time to emails or voicemail is A+ in my opinion. They do offer great recommendation for vendors which i use the DJ&Photo booth services as well as the Officiant they listed. My guest love the food and they were commenting through out the night they could not imagine wedding food tasting so good and it is buffet style. Everyone at Banquets of Minnesota was pleasant to work with and the dressing rooms was pretty sweet. Great job Leslie!! Highly recommend her with your venue choice.

The whole staff at the Banquets of MN were really great. They helped us set up, tear down, and were always around to help with whatever we needed day of. Last but not least, the venue is beautiful. It was an old bowling alley but the outside is simple white stucco and the inside is completely redone and beautiful. Tall ceilings, neutral colors in carpeting, very nice separate entrances to the two ballrooms with couches and tables if people want to get away from the music. I would definitely hold another event here and would recommend it to anyone who is looking to keep their budget and still have a beautiful venue with great food!

vice when we were struggling with decisions (which beer to buy for our guests/which food options to choose/which linens to use/etc...). I was planning our wedding while living overseas in the Peace Corps and she was completely flexible with me in our unique situation.
The banquet halls themselves are GORGEOUS. All of my guests said so. The permanent draping looked so elegant - and once all the tables were decorated and everything in place - I had to take a step back and just admire.
All of my guests commented on the food. I didn't get to eat too much (typical bride right?) but what I ate was incredible! And it was beautifully presented in the buffet. We had mimosas and sandwiches provided to us as we got ready - the boys had beer and sandwiches while they played Xbox in their getting ready rooms. The getting ready suite for the girls was perfectly lit and a good amount of space for all our stuff!
Leslie worked with all my vendors to get them set up - I hardly had to speak with them if they needed anything - she was on top of it.
To top it all off - Leslie was even there to help with my bustle before the grand entrance because everyone was struggling with it!
Going above and beyond seemed second nature for her - my reception was simply perfect. We all had so much fun!
Thank you so much!

The venue was AMAZING. My (now) husband and I were incredibly pleased with our choice here. The place is really a blank canvas for whatever you want your wedding to be. (We wanted a Halloween-themed wedding, with people in costumes or comfort, ...
and once we had it decorated, you felt like it was Halloween.) It was comfortable, clean, and there are wonderful ready rooms!
PLUS, there's a DJ booth built in, so the DJ isn't taking up valuable space on/near the dance floor.
And the food!! I can't even put into words how good the food was. We had stuffed veggies and dip, Cesar salad, whipped potatoes and gravy, glazed carrots, country baked ham, stuffed chicken breast, and bread sticks. It was such a wonderful spread of amazing food. That chef is dynamite. And not one of our guests had a complaint.
The first thing that struck me was how nice Leslie was to work with. She's a firm operator and I knew my wedding was in very good hands. Even at our first meeting, she was welcoming, friendly, and incredibly knowledgeable. My husband and I were doing the wedding all on our own; no planner. But Leslie turned out to be more than capable of being a wedding planner. She helped us organize our thoughts and verbalize what we wanted. She was incredibly accommodating, and very prompt at answering her emails. (I'm sure she would be the same with phone calls, but I hate calling people, so email it is. And sometimes I get hesitant about emailing because it's easy to be put off by the recipient, but Leslie ALWAYS got back to me within 24 hours (usually way less than 24, I swear she doesn't sleep).) Between her and the rest of the staff, we were well taken care of. Just the nicest people on such a stressful day.
Also, the location is great. Just off of 694 and 65. It's easy for anyone to get to, and really not hard to find. My guests really appreciated that.
I would HIGHLY recommend Banquets of Minnesota for your wedding if you want amazing food, SUPER friendly staff, and a place you can put your own mark on. I can't commend them enough for their hard work and dedication to making the day special and memorable.

est sound through the banquets of MN therefore we paid them not the dj and the contract was not seen by us.

The DJ stopped at midnight and said that's how long his contract was for, yet I didn't see this contract and was not aware of the timing. I got out dj to play until 1230 but was not happy with the communication between the DJ, banquets and myself. When the DJ just stopped playing while we figured it out it killed the party when it was confirmed they should have played til 1230. Only advice is to ensure you see all contracts and details from every vendor yourself I.e. DJ, food, photobooth, cake, etc and ensure all times line up.
