The planning process was very stress-free and easy to go through. Larissa provided excellent advice and suggestions. The room was beautifully set up. Service during the event was fantastic. Attendees raved about the food quality. The champagne served added to the specialness of the event. Thank you for a wonderful job. I will definitely come to Edgefield first for a large event

Planning the event was a great experience. Fr. Luke’s Room was a great location for our event. Large enough for our entire group and did not feel stuffy. Our attendees had great fun checking out the rest of the building…the soaking pool, all the photos on the wall, the Cigar Bar and Fireside Pub. The servers we had did an exceptional job – they were friendly and fun. If we have the chance to do it again, we’ll be calling McMenamins for sure!
