OTAC and its staff led by Bob Cooper were spectacular. There is no question we would hold our wedding and reception there again. The rating system is NOT sufficient to accurately describe the value of our wedding and reception at OTAC. Bob was flexible and superb to work with. Professionalism is a hallmark for this venue.
The venue showed well and all of our guests remarked how impressed they were with the venue; even vendors that see a lot of weddings commented positively on working with Bob and the venue. We constantly heard “best wedding”, “best wedding food”, “really a nice place that decorates well”, etc. All of those comments are accurate.
The food and service are second to none. We were overwhelmed at the tasting for food selection choices and taste. The passed hors d’oeuvres and reception buffet food was tremendous with quantities to our guests more than sufficient. The bar and bar service was all that we could have hoped for – we had some robust drinkers in our crowd and the bar stayed stocked, yet the staff managed the drinking professionally. Details such as the wedding and grooms cake were exceptional. One of the nicest touches is that the Chef will provide a replica, top cake layer for the bride and groom 51 weeks after the wedding date so the couple does not have to eat stale, frozen wedding cake on their first anniversary.
The ancillary facilities such as the large area for our daughter and her bridesmaids to get dressed in were nice. A very nice suite is adjacent to the ballroom for the Bride and daddy to spend a last moment before the event and for the new couple to have a moment to gather themselves between the wedding and reception. All of the nice touches are there to make a successful wedding.
We thought the cost was reasonable going into the wedding, but after the event we believe the value of what was delivered far exceeded our expectations. We have no reservations recommending OTAC to others.
Thank you for a great evening. Your staff was amazing and everyone had a great time. We had lost of comments on how great the food was. Chef Scott and his staff did an amazing job! Bob, thank you so much for making our big day memorable. Everything was even better than we expected! Thank you again.
The Hollenbecks just wanted you to know that as Caitlin and Aaron have almost made it to their first anniversary we have been looking back at the wedding day and you are one of the top highlights! You were a dream to work with and we felt like you honestly cared. We have actually missed our interaction with you!
We hope this email finds you doing well! Thanks again for being such a blessing to us!
P.S. Pam Short’s daughter is getting married and having her reception there on June 7th. She took our advice and used you and DJ Tod!
We were more than pleased with everything Olde Towne has to offer. Many of our guests commented to us on how delicious the food was and how kind your staff was throughout the night of our wedding. It means a lot to us that your staff treated our guests with kindness and respect. Everything was better than we imagined it could be the day we got married. We barely had to think about a thing!
Each aspect of the club and the process of preparing for our reception there was excellent. Chef Scott and his staff did an amazing job with the food and the presentation of it. The “icing on the cake” (pun intended) was the work Chef Scott did on both of our cakes. He is a gem! Both cakes looked and tasted utterly delicious. I cannot thank him enough for making the groom’s cake perfect.
We really felt and continue to feel that we got a lot for our money. Your prices are more than reasonable and the day was completely tailored to us.
Our interaction with you, Bob, was always so great. It was because of you that we decided on the club. Other places that we checked out seemed to only want our money, but you seemed to want to share in our celebration. We felt that you really cared about how our day went and that we were happy with the final result (and we were!). You always seemed so happy and excited for us and when we would stress over little details, your expertise helped us figure it out. You are a very kind and pleasant man.
Thank you for making our big day memorable, relaxed, everything we wanted!
Thank you. Everything went perfectly. We were extremely happy with every aspect of Olde Towne…including the perfect weather which I’m not really sure how you pulled off but greatly appreciated! We have had several people rave about the food and I have since recommended Olde Towne to several people at Kennestone.
We also really appreciate how quickly the table issue (6/9) was taken care of. That will forever be a joke in our household.
Thanks for helping make our day!
We cannot say enough about Bob and his staff for our daughter’s wedding. Everything from the beginning to end went off like clockwork. The food was fantastic, the wedding cake was fabulous and made just as they wanted. The vendor list Bob gave us turned out to be the best…photographer, florist, and DJ…fantastic! This is our third daughter, all now married, and this was the easiest and smoothest wedding of all.
Olde Towne did an amazing job on my wedding day! Bob was so responsive all through the process, and I was very impressed with his patience, especially considering our head count changed almost up to the minute. The room is very spacious and the dance floor is huge. You don’t realize how important that is until you go to a wedding with a small dance floor and can’t even dance because it’s so crowded.
The food was fabulous! Everything was delicious and fresh, and we got so many compliments on it. The cake was unbelievable (Canoli Cream is the best!). I normally don’t like wedding cake, but ours was amazing. We had guests who have experienced the best of the best when it comes to food, and many said it was the best cake they had ever had. We ordered 2 small cakes as a thank you for some folks in our family who helped with the wedding, and I am ordering a bunch of cupcakes (same flavor) for my sister’s baby shower this weekend! This cake will be a regular addition to our special events menu.
One thing we didn’t want to do, and are so glad that Bob encouraged, was the whole alone time in the room before we were introduced as husband and wife. We were both pretty overwhelmed and ready to have a moment alone before we had to face everyone. DO NOT PASS THIS UP!
Bob worked really well with my DJ and florists to set up and make sure everything ran smoothly. He is incredible! Olde Towne was everything we wanted and more in a wedding venue. Thank you for your hard work!
The buffet table’s presentation of the food was beautiful. The food was outstanding. Many guests commented on both the presentation and the taste! Scott did a fantastic job with the cake! It was just perfect!
The guests felt very cared for. The children’s meals were delivered promptly and appreciated. Your staff was very gracious and polite.
Bob, your help with the planning and the actual night was most beneficial of all. From the minute we walked in, it was apparent that you were in charge, but that it was really the bride’s night and she was your number one concern. Knowing that you were in control of the evening allowed Dave and I and Cori and Scotty to relax from the first minute and truly ENJOY the entire night. Not once did I feel like I had any responsibility. And I have to admit, I loved that! I really had a blast! As did Cori and Scotty and all of our guests! You do your job so well. I will recommend this hall to everyone who asks. It was outstanding.
Thank you very much.
Olde Towne provided me with the perfect wedding. EVERYONE continues to let me know how amazing the food was and how professional the service was. Bob was better than any wedding planner I could have hired. I would definitely recommend Olde Towne if you want a beautiful, fun, organized, and delicious wedding that gives you more than what you expect to pay for a wedding like this.
Scott Murtha delivered in a big way by carefully explaining to us during the tasting what he planned to do with each dish, made us feel comfortable by wanting to please, and doing it in a very unassuming way; and everything served on event night was exactly what we expected and was just as delicious as it was during the tasting. It was nice to see Scott in the ballroom on event night ensuring everything was going well, which also gave Jonathan a chance to express his appreciation in real time. Our guests could not stop talking about the quality of their meal – and some of those positive comments came from some very persnickety folks we know.
Patricia Peters was always monitoring everything, and she did a great job ensuring our needs were met after you left for the night. Even though we stayed a bit later to pack up our things, along with visiting with some of our guests who also stayed later to visit, we never felt rushed, and Patricia gave us assistance with whatever we needed. Plus, we saw a bit of her fun personality come through as well.
We also need to express our appreciation to your supporting cast – those folks whose names we don’t know, but were always there to serve our food, clear our tables, scoop our ice cream, slice our pie, and serve our drinks – they all did it with a smile and what appeared to be a genuine desire to provide service. What really made the event fun for the kids was opening up the pool for the last hour – that was a big hit! Bob, we also appreciated your being receptive to a few special requests we made during the evening, which you handled quickly and with precision. We had a couple of friends in attendance who asked us for the contact info for our vendors, thus we anticipate we may be seeing you again in the future
Thank you again for making the process easy, straightforward, and hassle-free, which allowed Amy and I to relax and really enjoy the experience of watching our son have a wonderful time with his friends, and allowing us the chance to enjoy the night with our family and friends without having to worry about event details – you, Patricia, and Scott had it all covered.
Olde Towne Athletic Club made my daughter’s wedding reception a truly memorable event. From our first meeting with Mr. Bob Cooper to the clean-up post reception every aspect of the event was handled with exceptional professionalism. Their quote for our 200+ guests was competitive while offering value for the menu created for the sit-down buffet. Our guests raved about the food and its presentation. All of our requests for the bride’s cake which was exquisite to the groom’s “cat” cake were beautifully presented. All of this would not have been possible without the planning and timing of the event provided by Mr. Bob Cooper. All parts of the reception were carried out on a timely basis and ran smoothly with no “rough spots” at any point during the reception. He is the consummate perfectionist and will make your event very special from beginning to end.
From the very beginning of the planning process, Bob Cooper was a fantastic resource. He was always very accommodating, responsive, patient in answering all of our questions/concerns, and he provided great suggestions for various elements and vendors we had to consider along the way. On the day of the wedding, he and his staff continued to reassure us of something that we had been told along the way…that every detail would be put in place as we had planned, and that we didn’t need to worry about anything other than enjoying our special day with friends and family.
The food was EXCELLENT (we had many guests telling us how wonderful it was), and the cake was delicious! Cocktail hour in the Pub with a photo slideshow was also very cool, and the guests loved it!
All in all, we know we made the best decision in having our wedding at Olde Towne, and we wouldn’t change a thing about it. We wholeheartedly recommend the venue to anyone looking for a wedding or event venue…you will be taken care of with great service from beginning to end, and you will not be disappointed!!
Thank you again, Bob, Patty, Chef Scott, and the whole OTAC crew for an amazing wedding!
