We had our rehearsal dinner, ceremony and reception at Oscar Event Center and we couldn't have asked for anything better. The center itself has a unique character that we knew from the moment we walked in that this was the space for us. The staff were absolutely incredible. They... Read More helped with everything down to the fine details that made our day so special. My bridal party and I got ready the day of in the bridal suite and we we felt like royalty! The wait staff and bartenders catered to our guests and bridal party so attentively. We heard nothing but good things from our guests, too! I can't forget about the food, oh my goodness the food! It was absolutely delicious. As a spoiled Italian who loves her home cooked handmade food, trust me (I'm drooling just thinking about it again!). Everything is wonderful at Oscar, even down to the logistics of it all. You can bring in your own vendors and the staff will recommend vendors they've worked with in the past if you're looking for help finding them. They are responsive and quick to assist you with anything you need. Oscar Event Center, Dianna, Steve and Ryan by far exceeded all of our expectations.

The physical space is stunning. Dark wood trim, lots of character. We fell in love with the South Hall and the pub instantly. We used the complimentary center pieces and everything looked great. The food was fantastic! We hosted more of a 'Happy Hour' style dinner with... Read More various food stations. We chose the potato wedge station (with various toppings); the mini slider and mini chicken breast sandwiches (again with various toppings you chose yourself); Italian station with various pasta/sauces, meatballs, veggies and garlic bread. End of the night late night snacks were a hit though we were having such a great time we really didn't get to try them (popcorn, chipsw/salsa/queso). I would have provided a perfect 5 star review but there was an issue with not allowing our party favors to be put out (since they contained alcohol). We had discussed this previously but management changed their mind the day of the reception. There is also a 20% service fee added to the bill. This was not disclosed when the food/beverage minimum was quoted. Seems trivial but it really adds up as the bill increases. Overall, we were very happy with the evening. Staff and service were great. Dianna was easy to contact and very knowledgeable. All our guests had a wonderful experience and complimented us throughout the evening on the beauty of the location and the yummy food.

Being from TN I just wish we had something close to our home with such great hospitality, service and the view.

HI Dianne, I wanted to take a quick moment and give you some feedback about our fabulous reception on Saturday. Steve was our main man, he was positive, polite, attentive, and made sure all of my wants needs and ideas about the evening were answered. He never let me worry... Read More about anything and waited until I was alone before asking/addressing upcoming issues. He helped keep me on track time wise and helped game plan to make sure everything we needed was taken care of, and we did everything we had wanted and planned to do. Everyone on the staff was so polite and everyone raved over the service! People said they hadn’t even put their drink down and the waiters were there to refill it. No one went empty handed, the staff memorized guests drink orders and felt as if they had their own personal waiter. They loved how beautiful and unique the venue was, the lighting, the space, the balcony, everything beautiful. Many said this was the best reception they’ve been to, best compliment we could receive. The FOOD! OMG the food! I wish I would have been able to eat more of it. I didn’t even see the hors o’euvres, but I’m sure they were fabulous, I didn’t get to try the Salmon, I should have juts asked for another plate, but who had the time. The salad dressing, the flavor of the salmon, the crab meat melted in your mouth. Even the size and taste of the chicken fingers, many parents told me at the end of the evening that they would have been happy with the kids meal. The portions were unbelievable, so large and filling. Thanks again for a magical evening! I wouldn’t have changed anything, but slowing down the time spent there, enjoying every moment.
