I felt like I was in a church basement. There were no windows in this restaurant, and on a sunny warm day in Redlands, I would have enjoyed a little natural sunlight. The ceiling here is low which creates a loud noise level. I would...More

The part of the venue we were in, the west side, is totally handicapped accessible. There are no steps at all. The bathrooms were somewhat small, but someone in a wheelchair should do fine.

They have competitive pricing, service needs improvement, ambience is ok, it is an old orange packing house. They allow outside catering which is a plus. Owner is a nice person, I discussed my concerns with him after the event and he was understanding.

Went here for our God Daughter's Wedding. Building is rustic and a beautiful location for a wedding, large parties, etc. Parking is easy and central location in town. Split levels are only accessed by stairs.

I was there attending my best friend daughter's wedding. It was set up very nice. I don't know the costs involved but they did a bang up job. Only thing I didn't care for was the bar set up downstairs.

This location worked beautifully for a wedding and reception! The separate spaces for the ceremony and reception were ideal. The building, interior, chandeliers, and drapery were very nicely done. The food was delicious!!
