    We cannot say enough good things about Donauschwaben's. We knew the minute we met Christine that this was where we wanted our wedding reception to take place. Our wedding was on December 16 and everything was decorated beautifully. The food was absolutely amazing. It was the number one thing our guests raved about. It was hot and delicious!!! Christine was the easiest to work with. Anytime we had a question she responded immediately. We were stress free knowing Christine had everything handled. The Staff was professional and kind to all of our guests and that was extremely important to us. All we can say is....If you are planning a wedding reception or any event, for that matter, you will not be disappointed with Donauschwaben's!!! Thank you Christine and Staff for making our Wedding Day everything we hoped for and more!

    We recently had our wedding reception at Donauschwaben on November 11th and we would highly recommend this venue to anyone interested in having an event there. The venue is gorgeous and big enough to hold both small and large events. They decorated the venue perfectly to our specifications ensuring everything looked gorgeous and we were thrilled with the results when we arrived for our big day. The food is absolutely amazing, all of our guests were raving about how good the food was for the entirety of the event. We upgraded to the Prime Rib and it was cooked to perfection along with the other entrees and everything was absolutely delicious. The staff is very accommodating and made sure that everything went perfect and there was never a wait for a drink. We were impressed at how well the whole event went and have had all our guests mention how much they loved both the venue and food after the fact. We were extremely satisfied with our experience there and they really made our big day special.

    We booked Donauschwaben for our end of October wedding ceremony and reception. We had a large guest list of around 250 people, and had 200 attend the day's festivities. The venue fit everyone very comfortably, had a large dance floor, and the food was fantastic. Christine, the venue coordinator, was very helpful when planning our big day. We were able to come in the day before our wedding day to set up which was very much appreciated. We would recommend this venue to anyone looking to book a larger space!

    Donauschwaben's was a wonderful location for our wedding reception. The events manager, Christine, and other staff were so nice and awesome to work with. They made the whole process really easy. The hall is beautiful and has plenty of space for guests. The food was so delicious and our guests raved all night how good it was. Our favorites were the giant pretzels, pot stickers, and herb crusted pork loin. Everything we tried was amazing. It was such a wonderful experience and definitely would highly recommend this location.
