  • The Ballroom at the Ben was fantastic for our wedding event. Ott was very responsive to our needs in the months leading up to the wedding and kept on top of everything. The space is amazing and beautiful and the food is fabulous! What more could you want? Everyone was so complimentary that night and I heard from many people that it was the best wedding they had ever been to!

  • I would highly recommend the Ballroom at the Ben! We worked with Emily and she was amazing! She was extremely helpful and supportive throughout the process. She was always available to answer questions and responded to emails extremely quickly. She made the planning process a breeze and was a joy to work with! Ott was also incredible to work with. He was extremely organized and made the week before stress free. He took care of me and family the day of and made sure we had everything we need. My parents couldn’t speak highly enough of him. The venue itself was incredible as well. My guests raved about the food, especially at cocktail hour. Many people said they have never been at a better cocktail hour. The venue itself is beautiful and the extra additions the Ben provides makes it truly a wedding to remember. The staff was all friendly, helpful, and professional. What you get at the Ben for the price is well worth it. I truly feel like every penny I spent was worth it and went to ... Read more

  • My husband, daughter, and her fiance looked at nine venues and none compared in beauty, menu choices, space flexibility and professionalism. We first met with Stacy, who is so pleasant and knowledgable. Once we went to contract, she guided us through menu options - which were so plentiful, seating layouts, and all of the amenities. Then, she worked seamlessly with our wedding planner. A month prior, we met with Ott, who's role is everything: the logistics of the entire event flow through him and he doesn't stop for one second. From the coordinator, catering director, lighting designer, ceremony coordinator, go-to-guy for every vendor and everything else. Just call him the most efficient general contractor you will ever meet. In the middle of it all, he stopped to make sure that my husband and I tasted everything, special culinary requests were attended to, and the bride and groom were taken care of. Just thinking about how much he handled still makes my head spin. Now about the ... Read more

  • The staff at Ballroom at the Ben made my daughter's wedding the event of a lifetime. Their professionalism and graciousness was superb! Every one of my guests raved about the cocktail hour, the dessert room and the main course. The food was delicious and arrived promptly and hot! I highly recommend the Ballroom at the Ben and give it 5 out of 5 stars! I was so happy we selected this venue for the wedding of her dreams!

  • We knew the moment we walked into the Ballroom at the Ben that this was where we would have our wedding reception. Choosing the Ballroom at the Ben was the best decision ever! Our wedding reception was PERFECT. We worked with Emily throughout the entire process and she was simply amazing. She was professional, fun, and extremely responsive to my calls and e-mails. Emily was there through every question and concern throughout the entire process. We worked with Ott the week of the wedding and the wedding night. Ott is wonderful! He is funny, professional, and truly kept the night moving on time, and made sure all our needs were taken care of. He treated my parents and us like royalty. Our guests are still raving about the cocktail hour spread, how delicious their meals were, and of course the amazing dessert room. Many of our guests told us the venue was the most beautiful wedding venue they had ever been too. Our wedding was truly the best night of our lives! We could not have asked fo... Read more

  • Having our wedding at Ballroom at the Ben was the best decision ever. It was honestly perfect. Working with Michelle and her team was such a blessing and being able to have Finley Catering do our wedding was just a dream come true. They were always there for every question, every concern, and truly made planning the wedding EASY. Their business is truly top notch and all around class. It was truly the best night of my life and better then anything I could have ever imagined. I feel like I was treated like royalty that night. The cocktail hour food and the main course is something that is still being talked about by our family and friends three weeks later. Our family and friends are still calling us weeks later to talk about how amazing the night was and to say it is the best wedding they have EVER been to.

  • From the moment we saw the Ballroom at the Ben we fell in love with the space. It was exactly what we were looking for – a big enough space that didn’t feel too big – intimate and cozy while still being able to have plenty of room for all of our guests to sit and dance. It also has so much character; we didn’t want a generic ballroom (and we’re huge Eagles/Silver Linings Playbook fans – so bonus!). What really made our decision easy, however, was Michelle Finley and the entire Finley Catering team. Even without knowing in advance that Finley is a family-run company, you would know it upon first meeting Michelle. It’s hard to describe, but the moment we met her and Ott we felt comfortable. (Ott lives up to all that is said about him – in the best way!) I know everyone probably says that their venue was easy to work with in order to realize their ultimate vision but in this case it’s really the truth. I admit that we were picky about wanting specific menu and dri... Read more

  • Emily and Ott were more than professional. They handled everything that came up. It is like going on an all inclusive vacation. You pay one price and every detail is handled to the letter. Every guest we talked to said it was the best wedding they ever attended by far. Great Job Ott and Emily!!! I wish I was invited to another event at the Ballroom. The food was delicious!!! You guys are the best in the business!!

  • Choosing Ballroom at the Ben for our wedding reception was the best decision my husband and I could have made during our planning process. From the very beginning, we were extremely well taken care of. We worked with Michelle Finley and she was professional, knowledgeable, and honest. She was extremely responsive and answered all of our questions clearly and in a timely manner. The room is exquisite and our guests were all in awe from the start. The cocktail hour food was over the top and the dinner was fantastic. We received so many compliments on the food (especially the filet) and also on the level of service. Ott was our mâitre d’ and he was amazing. He took a lot of time with us for our final run-through to make sure we knew how everything would work. The night of the wedding, he checked in on us and our families to make sure that we had everything we wanted. Finley Catering and Ballroom at the Ben live up to all the incredible things you’ve heard. I promise that they... Read more

  • I don't think that there are enough words to thank the staff from Finley Catering enough! Our wedding day was absolutely flawless thanks to Emily and Ott! Being an event planner made planning our wedding feel like a job and I obsessed over every detail. Emily and Ott were able to take all of the stress off of my hands and I didn't have one worry on the Wedding Day. Ott was so amazing that he even rolled the flower girl (our Pomeranin, Squashy) down the aisle when the ring bearer got scared. Marilyn was amazing and everyone always made sure that we had a drink in our hand from the toasts to the dancing! Being in many weddings I have never been to a venue where they handle everything, including packing up all of your belongings and labeling boxes for you! Their attention to detail was impeccable, they made us feel that we weren't just a couple getting married in their venue that day. I could not have imaged a more perfect venue for our special day!

  • The Ballroom at the Ben could not have been a more perfect venue. We had both the ceremony and reception there. From the first day we went there and met with Michelle Finley I knew we were in good hands. Michelle was SO helpful and got back to me right away with any questions I had. She mad our visions come alive. The other person who was absolutely incredible was the maitre d OTT! We LOVED him. I felt like he was a member of my family. Him and his staff made the night go by with 0 issues. I cannot tell you how many people have told me that my wedding was the best wedding they have ever been to, and that was because of Ott and the staff at Ballroom at the Ben. I hope that one day I can attend a wedding there as a guest!

  • My husband and I had the absolute best day ever! We have gotten so many compliments on how incredible the venue was, how tasty (and plentiful) the food was, how people had too many drinks because it was just so fun, and how great the staff was. We've even gotten a lot of "it was the best wedding I've ever been to" compliments! The bridal suite attendants and maître d' were just so accommodating and easy to work with. Everything that I wanted set up was done beautifully, even better than I imagined. I really can't say enough great things about how awesome the Ballroom at the Ben and Finley Catering made our day! Finley catering is one of a kind and you will not be disappointed!

  • We are using Ballroom at the Ben as our reception location and although the reception hasn't happened yet the customer service is beyond fantastic. Michelle and her team are incredible to work with, they answer every email and phone call, they send you any type of information you could possibly need, and they do everything to ensure that you are satisfied and in the know with everything that is going on.
