  • Unfortunately I cannot recommend this venue. My son and his beautiful bride were married there this weekend. I had several of our guests complaint to me regarding their customer service. When I spoke with the bride’s mother she experienced the same thing. When I called to discuss this with the general manager today she was argumentative, rude and unsympathetic. Let’s just say with Jennifer’s Gardens, the customer does NOT come first. Horrible customer service!

    Lori, On behalf of my staff and I we are very sorry that you did not have a nice evening and we appreciate you bringing your concerns to our attention. I certainly can understand your frustrations when you were unaware of how the liquor package was purchased. In this particular package the premium bar was for 3.5 hour, closed for one hour during dinner and 1/2 hour before the event ended. However, during dinner the bridal party and parents were served. You are correct, we do not make an announcement for last call, as we are not a saloon. On another note, the safety of our guests is our number one priority. When the bridal party and some guests arrived they brought in and were drinking "moonshine" liquor. I can assure you our drinks are one ounce pours as we use a precision pour system and we are monitored not only by the facility but also by the State of Illinois Liquor Commissioner. Our bartenders are all BASSET certified and take the precautions needed as with the situation that presented itself at your son's wedding. This is why the drinks were reduced to one drink per person each time they came to the bar. Again, we are very sorry and words cannot express our sadness as we thought it was a lovely evening for all involved. However, we shall invest more training on our liquor etiquette, control and hospitality manners. Jennifer's Garden

  • Jennifer's Garden went above and beyond our expectations! We were planning a 90th birthday celebration from out of state and it was easier than if we had been in the same town. The food was excellent and presented with style. The staff was friendly and always asking if we needed something. They were very flexible and really listened to what we wanted for our mother. The staff even provided extra touches that we hadn't asked for to make our party complete. We can't thank them enough for a FANTASTIC job!!

  • I just want to say that Deb and her staff went above and beyond to make our day perfect. Julie who married us was amazing and all of our guests and ourselves loved the food and our cake. She even gave some people seconds. It was hot and fresh and their hospitality was outstanding. I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone. It was worth every dollar and Deb really did go above and beyond with the decor. I made some new friends and for that I am blessed.

  • Deb and staff were absolutely wonderful and helped us every step of the way! Even the recommendations for photographer, DJ, and flowers from Deb were phenomenal. They do everything they can to make sure your day is perfect, and especially since we planned the wedding in 6 months. We were even given ideas and honest opinions about cake, decorations, etc. I could not say enough great things in reguards to everyone there and everything! Our day was perfect!

  • Awesome wedding reception experience. Deb is an amazing planner and always answered I questions in a timely nice manor. Lynn was also great to, she helped me decorate my room and pick out the right colors. The food, drinks and cake was all amazing. I don't think anyone left hungry. The entrance from the upstairs made some awesome photos. Thank you Jennifer's Gardens. 100% happy!

  • Jennifer's Garden went above and beyond our expectations. They have a system and it works. Deb was always there to make our wedding perfect and did whatever it was that she could. Julie was the perfect officiator for us and made our ceremony so personal but fun. Our flowers didnt show up and in 10 mins they ran and put stuff together for bouquets! It was incredible how they did everything in their power to make the day great. I would recommend them to everyone who gets married.

  • Our daughter and her new husband chose Jennifer's Garden as the venue for both their ceremony and reception, and we are so pleased with their choice! Deb and her staff were so organized, flexible, and helpful throughout and made the day absolutely perfect. The officiant, Julie, was wonderful and made the ceremony very personal and meaningful. Reception hall was beautiful and food was excellent! Service was maybe a little "too" efficient, as they were a little too quick to take plates away at dinner in order to keep the timing in check. Also, be aware that bar closes for only 1/2 hour during dinner (not an hour as contract says) and then bar closes 1/2 hour before end of evening - so still 5 hour reception with 4 hr open bar as contract says - not a problem, but just something to be aware of. Several hotels 2 minutes away, and they offer shuttle service to and from hotels all night - wonderful! Overall a perfect day, wonderful venue at great value, and we would absolutely recomm...

  • Deb is really on top of everything, and the price is great for how much is included! Everything ran smoothly for the most part. My only advice is that you make sure you communicate well with Deb. One thing wasn't mentioned to her about my plans and it was a pretty big bump for me. We got it taken care of, but she has a schedule (based off of your wants and needs, just tell her) and you better stick to it. I would definitely recommend and book them again.
