Restaurant wedding venues

entailments Oct 23, 2012 04:26 AM

I was wondering if anyone knew of any restaurants within 45 minutes of Boston that offer receptions for 100-120 guests. Ideally, all the guests would be seated in the same room as the dance floor. I've been looking at Cafe Escadrille in Burlington, which seems like a viable option, but I can't seem to find any others like it. Parking is also a must.

Thanks in advance!

    is one way to go, but you'd need a caterer. these place offer the venue and do set-up/breakdown.

      Danversport Yacht Club is just your big box function center. They do have a restaurant, but I have never seen it used for a wedding.

      I am not sure where the Peabody Museum Farm is in Peabody. I know we have Smith Barn at Brooksby Farm that people love, but you need to supply everything I believe. There's the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem. They may do wedding receptions.

      Tupper Manor in Beverly at the campus of Endicott College is lovely.

      Good luck and Congrats!!

        I think the poster must have meant the Peabody historical society farm

          Had our wedding last October at Bella Luna in JP. Fantastic food, great price, tons of free parking and T accessible. Invited 150, but only 115 RSVPd. I think with food and an open bar the total didn't exceed $6k. Fantastic experience. Best day of my life.

              I went to a wedding reception at Gaslight (they exchanged vows at a nearby chiuch, don't recall the name) and it was great.

            My nephew had his wedding at the Danversport Yaught Club, Danvers. My goddaughter's wedding was at the Peabody Museum Farm in Peabody. I know the Tewksbury Country Club does weddings, all have their own parking.

            Here is a thread I found with a couple of ideas also:


            Enjoy and good luck. :
