  • Our Wedding at Mendakota County Club was everything we wanted and then some! Trying to plan a wedding during a pandemic was stressful to say the least. Cutting back on the guest list, deciding what to keep and not for food service and everything in between was made a little easier by this team. Not only were they super supportive and helpful through our constant back and forth but they made us feel at ease with their current safety measures in place. After learning about all they do to help ensure guest safety and satisfaction we made the decision to move forward with our wedding! It was perfect! The outdoor ceremony space was amazing and the food Chef Mike prepared was so good. Thank you Mendakota for making our day so great.

  • We toured about 10 venues in the Twin Cities when we moved here last year and decided to get married in our new home town. We were looking for a place that was classic, connected with the ourdoors, and personal. Mendakota Country Club was all of these items and more! The clubhouse itself is simple and beautiful with high wood ceilings which is a lovely backdrop for any decorations. The grounds of the country club and the golf course were absolutely gorgeous, especially in August, when all the flowers are blooming and the sunshine is warm. Perry, the coordinator at Mendakota, was so fun to work with - that man has personality and is VERY good at what he does! He gave us great suggestions on how to best spend our budget to maximize the vision we imagined. He knew the important things to do to support traditions, like a wine pour and a signature drink, and he was also very flexible to let us decorate the way we wanted. He helped us to determine the layout of the room to hold our 130 guest... Read more

  • We had our wedding reception at Mendakota, and we can't recommend it highly enough! We looked at a number of venues, and Mendakota was by far the best value around. It is a beautiful country club, with immaculate grounds and classic detailing throughout. It wasn't necessary to spend much on décor, as the venue itself is already so lovely. The staff is very professional and easy to work with - Perry was extremely responsive and helpful throughout the entire process. He had excellent advice for us in planning our reception, and we were confident that everything would be handled well. We were so delighted with how everything turned out - we could not have chosen a better venue for our reception. We still hear compliments to this day; from the elegance and beauty of Mendakota to the excellent service and food (the food here is incredible!), everything was superb. We also hear rave reviews from everyone about the friendly bartenders and the high quality of the drinks they made. All in all,... Read more

  • Our August 13th wedding was a perfect day! We can honestly say that we are so happy we chose Mendakota Country Club for our ceremony and reception venue. Paige and Perry were easy to communicate with and helped us to personalize our day. On our wedding day Paige was so helpful, we cannot say enough about how great she is! A special shout out to Alan, one of our bartenders, our guests loved him and went on and on about how personable and friendly he was. We would not change a thing about our day! Thanks to everyone at Mendakota!!!

  • The service is topnotch from start to finish. My guests could not get over how incredibly beautiful everything was. I was planning on an outdoor wedding but mother nature had other things in mind. Paige, the coordinator for our big day, was able to take my planned outdoor ceremony indoors within 15 minutes. My guests raved about how beautiful the ceremony was and how impressive the service was. The food was a huge hit and everything was ready right on time. If you want a place for both ceremony and reception with great places to take photos, an amazing dinner selection, PERFECT service from start to finish, and a price that is actually affordable in the twin cities then you NEED to be at Mendakota Country Club. We even had friends who are looking at venues ask for the info they were so impressed!

  • We had our ceremony and reception at Mendakota in the summer of 2016 and hands-down it was the best day of my life not only because I was marrying the man of my dreams but because Mendakota had a huge hand in making the day so special. It was on-and-off raining and Perry and Paige did such a fantastic job at keeping everything coordinated and organized that I felt so comfortable knowing everything was going to go smoothly because they were the ones I got to work with. The staff was so friendly and attentive. Huge thanks to barkeepers Debbie and Alan; people were telling me how awesome the two of you were! The food was also so good, I mean who doesn't like cheesy potatoes with their chicken?! Overall, I couldn't of asked for a better experience for my guests - all thanks to Mendakota. I highly recommend this venue due to the friendly staff, cleanliness, beautiful views, delicious food, supurb service and attention to detail. Thank you, thank you!

  • Sundays are a great value at this location. Our guests are still talking about how beautiful the venue was. The food and staff were great. We had a lot of food allergies that they needed to accommodate and they did a great job with that.

  • I think the venue itself is amazing for a wedding as the outside ceremony area is beautiful and the reception room is very polished and elegant. It's also accommodating in regards to amenities for the guests pertaining to restrooms, parking, and overall comfort level. The one issue we had was in regards to the Catering Director. He doesn't do a good job of selling the venue or himself which left us feeling he didn't really care to go out of his way to make us feel confident in our choice of venue. He also wasn't overly friendly and welcoming, people skills are lacking in that regard. If you can get past that, the venue is amazing for a wedding.

  • The good: Excellent value, delicious catering, established reputation, beautifully manicured grounds, good capacity (I had a large guest list), service, quality leadership. We served tres leches cake that was delivered in deep sheet pans to hold the cocktail it's soaked in, and it was no issue for the kitchen staff to serve that. I loved how flexible they were with our unconventional dessert choice. Also, I'd requested steak for my Celiac friends and they were served chicken, however Mendakota made up for that in serving them the most delicious gluten free cake they've ever had. That was wonderful to hear after the wedding, thank you Mendakota team! The not so good: Not always responsive, but ultimately things get done well and questions get answered. If your guest list is over 120 guests, consider your desired table configuration. Guest lists over 120 mean the only reasonable choice for tables is all round in one section. I wanted the dance floor in center of Lakeside, how... Read more
