Just Married by Jenn S. at InsiderPages
We just held our wedding reception this November at the Franklin Room and had a great experience. I had read the previous reviews and was a little nervous about our wedding being there, but all in all, the night was great. Some pros: food was good. Not the best I've ever had, but definitely good (we had the carved roast beef and ham as our meats.) It was hot, fresh, and there was plenty for everyone. The price is extremely affordable. The servers and staff are very polite. The room is beautiful and not like many others in St. Louis. It does not have the banquet room feel to it and we loved the high ceilings and all hardwood floors. Cons: very strict guidelines. Gary and Hank, the two managers, definitely have their own way of doing things. There are specific rules, but if you're not a Bridezilla you will be fine. Another con is that you only have the venue for four hours. We hoped to extend our until midnight, but had to end at eleven. Overall, I would definitely recommend this to friends and we received many compliments. If we did it over, we would still have it at The Franklin Room.
