Impressive venue! Incredible people! Quality Food and 5 Star Service

From planning to execution the Sidedoor team is the perfect wedding venue. Responsive and stress free. Olivia, the Event Coordinator made it easy and was able to carry out our vision. The manager, Earl, was extremely amenable and ensured we received what we asked for. I recommend Sidedoor to anyone who wants a 5 star wedding!! Thank you Sidedoor - Wedding May 13th 2023.

Our wedding was better than what we could have imagined!
Candace and her team were phenomenal to work with (a dream compared to many other vendors we worked with along the way). Candace is professional and handles everything with ease and poise! Her calm demeanor was contagious and made us feel so confident with her abilities and planning for our special day. Candace is extremely reliable and patient.
We would highly recommend Sidedoor! The food was amazing, as usual; our guests had not one bad thing to say. As we did, our guests loved the environment of the venue, the vibe and elements that are unique to Sidedoor.

This is a beautiful restaurant. More importantly though the food was amazing. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal and the biggest compliment was from a friend who is definitely a foodie. She said it was delicious and you would never know they were serving 76 plus people. The service was just fantastic and we really couldn't have asked for more. They are expensive but worth it!
