  • John Wright was a beautiful venue for our daughter’s wedding. The service we received, the personal care taken by Molly- everything was wonderful. My husband and I as well as family and friends- old and new - enjoyed the food and ambiance. As the mother of the bride, all my fears and trepidations were secured in Molly’s careful hands. I would recommend JWR for any event.

  • My husband and I got married here on 10/06/17. It was absolutely PERFECT! We had our ceremony out on the lawn with the river in the background. It was just like a fairy tale we had perfect weather and lighting. Our reception was in the River Room above the restaurant, and there are not words to describe how beautiful it is. It has a rustic feel with a little bit of glam which is exactly what we were looking for. The food and service throughout the entire day was incredible. We were very privileged to get to work with Molly through the entire process, from planning to day of. She is absolutely incredible. She made sure everything was planned to detail and went without a hitch. I got my dream wedding and it would not have happened without JWR! I HIGHLY recommend them as a venue for a wedding, party, or just to have dinner. I could not have asked for more!

  • I have so many great things to say about choosing our wedding reception to be at John Wright. We worked with Molly throughout the planning process who thankfully was also our day-of coordinator. She made the planning process so easy and fun, and truly embraced our crazy, unique ideas. She was always so quick to respond and was incredibly accommodating to us. The day of she kept myself and my family so relaxed, was so helpful with last minute requests, and we truly all had fun. We fell in love with the venue from the beginning: the rustic elegance, the view of the river, the large patio. Our guests had an amazing time and complimented the staff, the venue, and the day endlessly. We are so grateful to have chosen John Wrights as our venue.

    responded with the following comments.

    Thanks Erin! You're day was just as you and Doug had envisioned it - a wonderful party! I had a blast tagging along to see it through and get to know you both in the process. The surprises just kept coming with the crazy pants and we can't forget Karl! Congratulations & Stay in Touch! - Molly

  • It was an absolute pleasure having my wedding at the John Wright Restaurant. The affordability and the professionalism of the staff, especially our wedding coordinator Molly, made it worth every penny. The venue is inherently rustic and beautifully, making decorating much easier than other places. I planned the wedding from across the country and couldn't believe how well everything fell into place. The view of the Susquehanna and the bridge was breathtaking and our guests are still complimenting us on the venue. A huge thank you to Molly for accommodating us so much before, during, and after the wedding and all of the staff at JWR for making our day so memorable!

  • We could not have asked for a better venue, coordinator, and wedding day! We worked with Molly at John Wright and she was absolutely phenomenal. She ended up being our day-of coordinator as well and we couldn't have been happier. Throughout the ENTIRE process, she was quick to respond and completely accommodating. She truly had our best interest and it was clear that she wanted the day to be great for us. John Wright was a beautiful venue and you just can't beat the flexibility, especially of being able to stay longer than 10pm. We will forever reminisce on the fantastic day that we had.

  • As a wedding florist and coordinator myself, I thought all the excel speadsheets, diagrams for styling, and pre-planning would keep everything in line. What I didn't realize until it was my day was all the demands and questions I would have along the way. Molly was amazing and worked with me and my assistants the day-of to allow me to feel like a BRIDE. The venue was super accommodating to my vision and requests. My guests are still raving about the ceremony views and industrial-glam atmosphere created inside. I will continue to recommend this venue to my brides :) **To see photos of our day, visit my business Facebook page: everyone deserves flowers.

  • We had our rehearsal dinner here in the large room on the second floor and it was magical! We had about 100 guests and there was room for everyone to mingle. People were stunned at the gorgeous view from the private deck overlooking the Susquehanna River and took tons of photos! The food was served buffet style and was very good - much better than we had expected for a buffet! Everyone loved it! Molly was excellent to work with and got back to us so quickly any time we contacted her, which we sincerely appreciated. I would HIGHLY recommend this GORGEOUS location for another rehearsal dinner or a wedding or any other special occasion where you really want to WOW your guests and also have a great team of nice people to work with while planning.

  • We had our ceremony on the lawn of John Wright and our reception in the River Room. Our experience was amazing from start to finish. We had the opportunity to work with Molly, she was accomodating and professional throughout planning. Her honesty and willingness to help made us feel like we were in good hands. The day of the wedding, Molly and her assistant stepped in as our day of coordinator due to an emergency. They were both attentive and made the events of the day flow smoothly. In the early stages of planning, we were nervous about John Wright because of the outdoor diners and our plans to have an outdoor ceremony. However, we were married at 4pm with very few diners sitting outside we didn't even notice. The space is incredibly verstile and fit perfectly for our amazing wedding.

  • My husband and I had our ceremony and reception at John Wright Restaurant on September 4, 2016. Molly was our coordinator from day one and was very easy to work with. She has a great personality and always made sure we were getting exactly what we wanted on our wedding day. She answered my million emails in a timely manner and always greeted us with a smile. Andrew was our day-of coordinator and was awesome. He made sure that everything was on-time and as scheduled as well as made sure we had everything we needed. We had our ceremony out on the lawn by the river and the view was absolutely gorgeous. Our reception was upstairs in the River Room which is gorgeous! It’s very rustic [exposed wooden beams and brick walls] and was more than enough room for our 150+ guests. We also loved the HUGE [private] deck that our guests were able to take advantage of the whole night. The food was amazing and the service was top-notch. The surrounding area is very industrial, which is GREAT... Read more

  • John Wright Restaurant and Molly (wedding coordinator) did a wonderful job on our wedding day! My wedding ceremony and reception were in two different areas on the property and it ran seamlessly. Molly responded quickly and in detail. Molly helped in every aspect of the wedding process, including the rehearsal and wedding day. She met with us at different points to review wedding details, a dinner tasting, and drink tasting. The bridal suite is a fabulous aspect of John Wright. It is well worth spending the day getting pampered with all your girls, especially with some mimosas. Going with John Wright Restaurant was a great choice and we did not regret it one bit! I highly suggest celebrating your wedding day at John Wright restaurant. It was beautiful and I loved every minute of it!

  • John Wright was a fantastic location for our wedding reception. We worked with Molly, who also ended up being our day-of coordinator, and she was great to work with. Very responsive, direct, thorough, and was on top of the details that we had specifically requested. Everything went extremely smoothly on the day of our wedding and we had no issues getting in to decorate, getting our vendors access, or for clean up afterwards. Everyone on staff was very respectful and professional. I'd say my only complaint is that the food was not the same quality that we had at our tasting. ]We were running a bit behind schedule that day, so it may have contributed to our food being overcooked and close to cold. I'm not sure how the buffet tasted to our guests (because honestly I was scared to find out), but it's possible just the head table's plated food was bad. Either way, I can say that it was the only disappointing thing about the entire day. The venue is beautiful, the renovations they did are re... Read more

  • This venue is absolutely beautiful. The folks are very nice and will do whatever you need/ask. The downside is the factory next door is loud if running but that's not something they can control. Our pictures turned out amazing along the river. Not much needed to make it look nice for reception. Already pretty. Food is great! Mini crab cakes were delicious for happy hour! Big hit with guests. Beer and wine are affordable if thinking about open bar of some sort. Everything was great. Highly recommend!!

  • Molly was our coordinator from day one! She was so helpful when we had absolutely no clue what we wanted to Do. They were willing to work with us on payments as we had some unexpected circumstances arise after we booked. Molly was wonderful about getting back to me about things. Everyone was so polite every time we were in there and the staff was wonderful during our event. They even took down our ceremony decorations after the fact and packed them up and brought them inside for us while we were getting pictures done! Linens, place settings,-'d BEAUTIFUL Gold chairs with white padded seats were provided. The bridal suite was perfect, especially for my kiddos. There was room to play!!! We had a perfect wedding and reception with John Wright. I would definately do it over again!

  • My husband and I chose to host our rehearsal dinner outside on the pizza patio and it was absolutely wonderful. We had a buffet of our own selected pizza, chips and guacamole, and dessert after. Our guest loved each item and enjoyed the beautiful views as well. Our servers were very attentive as well as they constantly were checking on us to make sure we had enough drink and pizza. The only issue was that the kitchen was not preparing pizza at a consistent speed to refill out buffet, however, our servers took this matter into their hands and saw that they addressed this issue to speed up the time between refills. Would certainly recommend this venue to host your large event or to just stop in for dinner!
