  • We could not have decided on a better venue for our wedding! We got married June 29th 2019 and are still getting compliments almost 8 months later on not only the food, but the experience people had at our wedding! The staff was amazing, and it wouldn't have been what it was without Lucy herself making sure our day was absolutely perfect. We were able to set up the day before and everything was was ready to go for the big day! Everything moved according to times and plans without a problem. We had people stay until the last minute possible and Lucy was more than fine with anything that went that day! We had 240 guests and more than enough room and plenty of room for more! I wouldn't change a thing!!! Thank you Aherns!!

  • We had the most amazing wedding, and all thanks to the amazing venue of St Clarence Pavilion, and Aherns catering. Lucy and her team were absolutely incredible from start to finish. They were extremely hands on during the entire event, and helped us with anything we needed. The food was incredible, and we heard so many wonderful remarks from our guests! If we could do it all over again, we would absolutely have the Aherns team right along with us!

  • Our wedding on 09.14.19 was a perfect one! We had 240 guests and we fit wonderfully in the larger sized ballroom. We had plenty of room for our photo booth, dessert tables (we needed two), and gift tables without making the room look crowded. The food was excellent and we had great reviews from the guests. Lucy made planning very easy. I especially appreciated the phone call a few weeks before the wedding where we go through everything, down to the exact time I wanted dinner served. Lucy also did a great job helping us keep on task the day of. Everything was much more hectic than I was anticipating, so we were running a little behind schedule, but all was well in the end! All the guests were served and had eaten in under an hour, which I found impressive considering the numbers we had. Our guests also made a mention that the bartenders were very quick to serve all night. Even when lines were long to get drinks everything moved quickly. Of note, my favorite part about Ahern's is their l... Read more

    Andrea, I see that I missed this awesome review. I thought is it to late to respond? But if these trying times have taught us nothing else, its never to late to say thank you. I enjoyed working with you and wish you both nothing but happiness. Take Care Lucy

  • I had my wedding reception in the Burke room in September. I cannot say enough good things about this venue! From the moment we went to see it we knew this is where we wanted to have our reception. The food is AMAZING! Usually you don't hear that about wedding food, but I have had nothing but compliments on our wedding. Lucy is awesome to work with and she will do all she can to make sure your day is prefect! Do your self a favor and check this venue out! You won't be disappointed! If I had to plan a wedding again (never again!) I would keep going back to Ahern's. Thank goodness for word of mouth. Also, if you have anyone with dietary issues/ restrictions Lucy and her team go above and beyond to accommodate to those, even if its making a separate meal just for them!

  • Several friends of ours from our church have gotten married at St. Clarence and after seeing the lights and decor, I knew I had to get married there. Lucy was so easy to work with and emailed back so quickly! Planning everything was a breeze. Our guests couldn't stop talking about the food and said it was the best wedding food they had ever had. Thanks Ahern!

  • After looking at venues from West to East, we found this gem by word of mouth from a friend and are so happy we stumbled upon them. Ahern's did our catering at one of their offsite venues-Saint Clarence Pavilion. From the beginning, Lucy was pleasant to deal with and always prompt with her responses. She made the whole planning process a breeze and gave us tips along the way to help us in any way we could. The price was hands down the best and our guests can't stop RAVING about the food and how beautiful the venue was. From start to finish it was stress-free and the best night ever!!! I would choose Ahern's and Saint Clarence again and again!!!

    Thank you Allyson for the Review. St Clarence is an awesome location. You get the best of both worlds, Rustic, outdoor, but covered. Take Care Lucy

  • We recently had our wedding (May, 2015) catered by Ahern's catering. It was not held at their banquet center but, at an outside venue. (St. Clarence Pavilion) Our guests RAVED about our food! At around $30 a plate you really can not go wrong with Ahern's. The menu is typical wedding food but, they were more than willing to work with us to find a menu that we desired for our special day. Lucy was absolutely wonderful to work with in both person and over email. We found the best way to communicate was via email as she was very quick to respond and willing to help in all matters. Our menu was burbon chicken, top round with mushroom sauce, roasted red bowtie pasta (a fan favorite!), green beans with bacon sauce, and roasted redskin potatoes. Not only do they provide great food they also provide wonderful service. They provided our special diet family members with special food at no extra cost. They also lit all of our candles for us (we had a TON) and would have lined up all name cards... Read more

  • I can't say enough good things about Ahern's! Our May 23, 2015 wedding was held in the Ashford Hall! The hall is updated and a real show stopper! It fit our 250 guests perfectly! Lucy was so accommodating! I knew she was always a phone call away and she never got irritated with all my phone calls and questions! We were able to come in the Friday before the wedding and set everything up--huge stress relief! The reception went so smoothly and our guests raved about the food! The food was so affordable ($30/plate buffet style) and so delicious! had a beautiful fruit & veggie appetizer display and for our dinner menu we served bourbon chicken, top round with mushroom sauce, roasted red bow tie pasta, green beans with bacon sauce, and redskin garlic mashed potatoes! Included was also a coffee/pastry station! To make it even better we were able to take all of our leftovers home--we had a ton! I would recommend Ahern's to anyone--you won't be disappointed!!!

  • Our wedding reception was at Ahern's in Burke Hall and it was great. We wanted something all-inclusive and Ahern's offered it all. Lucy, the event coordinator, was great to work with and very helpful. She sometimes doesn't respond immediately to emails, but don't worry - she is always there to help. The Hall is updated and has nice lighting and windows so we barely did any decorations (which was a relief). I dropped our few boxes of decorations off on Thursday and Lucy and her staff set everything up for us on Saturday morning which was a huge stress reliever. The food was good and the drinks were flowing. When the bridal party arrived and was seated, Lucy came up to us and asked if we needed drinks. The servers and bartenders were so helpful and polite throughout the evening. At one point in the night, part of my dress snagged on to another part and one of the bartenders noticed and helped me cut the thread! All the guests complimented the hospitality Ahern's offered. And o... Read more

  • We have received so many compliments on our banquet center and on the dinner they served! We opted for a formal sit-down dinner and the food was amazing. The hall is absolutely beautiful, and the center was very easy to work with in coordinating the day. I would highly recommend this site and caterer if you are looking for high quality.

  • This was our wedding reception venue. Let me start by saying that we were planning this from out of town and could meet or be in the space regularly. During the event the good was incredible. Very high reviews on the grilled salmon with dill, and the grilled veggies. The roasted red pepper pasta is the way to go! Remember wherever you book the event, white sauces tend to be bland, because of the volume that they make it in. Because of that, we chose and were recommended during the tasting to choose the red pepper pasta. It was very very tasty. Bathrooms were clean at all times, and the bartenders were easy and accommodating. The wait and service staff were very good. Always making sure we were happy and asked where things needed to go, and when things were happening to be flexible as things changed throughout the night time wise for us with the reception. The reason we gave 4 stars in two sections were as follows: communication. We planned this about 9 hours away so it was challenging ... Read more

  • Got married in Wyoming, then came back to Ohio for a "western" themed reception at St. Clarence. Used the golf-outing food: ribs, BBQ chicken, corn on the cob, etc. Guests are still talking about the food 6 months later!!
