  • We had our June 29th Wedding reception at Colonial Hall. We have nothing but amazing things to say about our experience of working with them. Their staff and coordinator (Michelle) are wonderful and took the time to make sure that everything was perfect. This venue is truly a hidden gem. The high ceilings, dark wood, gorgeous staircase and windows and the bridal and groom suites make for beautiful photos. Our wedding was 1920's themed and the venue fit it perfectly. We received many compliments from our family and friends of how beautiful the venue was. AND. THE. FOOD! so many of our guests raved about the food and how it was the best they've ever had! This venue and staff are one of a kind and we recommend them wholeheartedly!

  • Colonial Hall was amazing for our wedding. Everything was perfect. I cannot thank Michelle enough for everything she did. She is so great at what she does and is very familiar with all vendors in the area, so she can help make great suggestions. Michelle is great at responding to emails (and at all hours!) and making sure everything goes smoothly the day of. I would have our wedding at Colonial Hall again in a heartbeat. Also, the food is amazing. As many other people have written, guests at our wedding said it was the best food at a wedding they'd ever had!

  • We had our wedding celebration at the Colonial Hall in Salem and it was absolutely fantastic! Kelly was our contact, and she made sure all our questions were answered quickly and also made sure our every special request was accommodated. We couldn't have asked for a better venue! The space is gorgeous and the food was delicious! Thanks to Kelly and Michelle, our event went very smoothly, and everyone had a great time. We would highly recommend Colonial Hall for any special event. Thank you for making our night so special! J+C

  • We are excited to share our wonderful experience with Colonial Hall. We held our wedding reception here earlier this month (11/2017) and could not have been more please with how everything turned out. We had ~125 guests which allowed for ample space for seating (and dancing!). The venue itself was beautiful and the team who helped decorate and set up made it look even better. The cocktail hour on the balcony provided the opportunity to mingle with guests while looking down on the bandstand and seating area. Compliments to the chef - the food was amazing. Our guests raved about the appetizers and dessert especially. Also, compliments to the bartender for helping craft a signature cocktail for the evening. Above all we would like to give credit and thanks to Kelly and Michelle for helping to make this such a wonderful experience. From the start they both were instrumental in helping execute what we wanted. In particular, Kelly was very thoughtful in trying to make this night a... Read more

  • My husband and I very recently had our wedding here and we can not say enough good things about this place. First this place is everything we imagined for our wedding with the old time Salem feel and look to it. Plus the food was absolutely amazing! We highly suggest getting the mini chicken and waffles as an appetizer, it was everyone's favorite thing of the night! Michelle and her staff were like a well oiled machine. They were there to answer every question and give us guidance on things we were unsure of. We were never made to feel like we were bothering anyone any time we reached out for an answer! If you want to get married or have an event in Salem we would definitely recommend them!

  • I would definitely recommend this venue! everyone was super accommodating and let me customize anything in order to make my day truly special. I would love to especially point out Michelle who was the coordinator at colonial hall. She was great with letting me know when I needed to make certain decisions and she was just great and organized and super helpful. One thing that really helped the most was being able to visit the venue several times on the days leading up to the wedding. The hall didn't have another event booked during the week so I came in on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday prior to my saturday wedding. This was great so I didn't feel rushed or forget anything while setting up. Also Michelle was there with me setting up as well, which made things run much smoother. I do not have one complaint!

  • We had our wedding reception in the venue of our dreams! We could not wait for all of our family and friends to see this beautiful venue in Salem! With high ceilings, a stunning chandelier and hardwood floors, this venue sparkled! I work in luxury hotels and the service from Michelle, our coordinator and her team was five-stars. Michelle was always available when we had questions and the manager, Dave was also very helpful and kind. The food was amazing! We received so much positive feedback from guests, everything came out hot, fresh and all together. The setting was so beautiful from the chiavari chairs, the satin linen on the tables, the large window at the top of the staircase, the bridal suite, I could go on and on. I have pictures that I will treasure forever with the backdrop of Colonial Hall! We are just so grateful for such a wonderful experience on our wedding day!

  • Colonial Hall was the best decision we made with our wedding. We looked at 10-15 venues and had initially narrowed it down to Colonial Hall, Peabody Essex Museum or Sapphire Estate. Colonial Hall was more affordable, flexible and service oriented than PEM (they literally offer nothing except the venue). We had a tasting at Sapphire and Colonial Hall and Colonial Hall won HANDS DOWN. My standards for "wedding food" is low so it is pretty easy for food to be "good" at a wedding. But their food was restaurant quality - we had a surf and turf dish (something customized that wasn't on their standard menu) and people gave us amazing compliments on it. It is the caliber of food I would expect in an expensive/fancy restaurant. But as beautiful as the hall is and as amazing as the food was, the thing that makes Colonial hall the best choice is the level of service and flexibility. Anything we wanted, they found a way to make happen (and with a smile). We wanted a Maine beer tasting at... Read more

  • I cannot believe what an amazing wedding I was able to have at Colonial Hall without totally destroying my budget. First of all, the space is so naturally beautiful and amazing that it is the perfect blank slate to work with. They provide you will tables at chiavari chairs and during the planning process you can select your linens. The food at Colonial Hall is AMAZING and the tasting they arrange is really helpful. They serve amazing passed hor d'oevres (tons of hot and cold options) and a really classy seated dinner. What's also great is that their dinner comes with dessert so even if your guests don't want to eat wedding cake, there will be something to satisfy your sweet tooth. Our wedding coordinator, Michelle, really knows the event planning business and did so much of the heavy lifting for us. The actual wedding day went by so seamlessly that I wasn't stressed at all! The managers and waitstaff at Colonial Hall are attentive and upbeat-- you really can't go wrong. This has to be... Read more

  • We were recently married at Colonial Hall and couldn't be more happy with our choice. The hall was absolutely gorgeous, the food out of this world, and the staff absolutely amazing. We knew from the moment we saw it that this was the place. Throughout the entire planning process we were treated wonderfully, our questions answered promptly, no matter what they were, and made to feel like everything was going to be perfect, and it absolutely was. Thank you to the wedding coordinators we had for all their help, taking care of us all along the way, and most importantly on our actual day, where we didn't have to worry about a thing, and thank you to the chef for the most amazing food ever. We are so appreciative of everything and are so happy we chose you!

  • We had an amazing reception at the Colonial Hall. Michelle and the event staff were friendly and very easy to work with . The food was top notch and we received a ton of compliments from our guests. We were very drawn to the beautiful wood work, chandelier and design/layout of the room. We had our cocktail hour upstairs, with the dining and dancing on the main floor. We felt the pricing was reasonable and any questions we had were promptly answered. We highly recommend the Colonial Hall as a wedding reception venue, we couldn't have been happier with our day.

  • My husband and I recently threw a belated wedding reception and are so glad that we chose Colonial Hall for our venue. We live in Boston but Salem was a great location for a party – it’s easy for guests to get to and once you’re in Salem all the hotels etc. are easily within walking distance. Colonial Hall is above the Rockafellas restaurant/bar which is right in downtown Salem. We had our party on a Saturday night, but definitely couldn’t hear any noise from the restaurant downstairs. Plus, once our event ended it was great that everyone could just head downstairs to the Rockafellas bar and keep partying. Michelle Minasian was our event coordinator and was absolutely great through all the planning and the night of the party as well. Michelle and Colonial Hall took care of all the set-up/take-down and were really flexible on the days/times, so we were able to just enjoy the weekend with our guests. Colonial Hall itself is a really beautiful space – we had about 80 gues... Read more

  • I cannot say enough good things about Colonial Hall at Rockafellas, and am so beyond glad I selected this venue for my wedding reception. I have heard nothing but amazing feedback about the room itself, the food,the service, all were bar none. From the getgo, Michelle was very helpful, from setting up our private tasting, to making sure there was apple cider for our signature drinks, to allowing me to come in a few days early to set up my centerpieces, she was really wonderful to work with. There were zero hiccups that day, and everything ran smoothly. There was even a lovely server, Christine, who was assigned to make sure my husband and I got a chance to taste all of the appetizers and make sure we always had a drink, etc. A big thank you to Christine! I would whole-heartedly recommend Colonial Hall to any bride who wants a stunning wedding with INCREDIBLE food!!
