I am looking into booking the American Legion for our reception. Price is def. a virture in our wedding and they are the cheapest we have found so far. Has anyone ever experienced any receptions there or heard anything either good or bad about the legion in Canandaigua, NY?
Aunt and uncle had there wedding at the american legion in Canandaigua. It was ok, kindda tacky ? and lots of extra charges $$ They charge extra for a bar $75 dollars and you have to pay the bartender $10 an hour for bartending. Then you get charged for the hall rental $250 dollars,they even charge to fold the linen napkins ? on-top of the linen charge ? but the food was good. They had an open bar so add 18% tip on top of the state tax,and the bartender had a tip jar out the whole time ?
Sorry but for the money there are far better choices. We were told one thing by the manager Wayne (Also bartender) and something else by the catering staff. The food that Mike (Fatman) provide us was far better then we expected,I can't say enough about how good it was ! The problem we had was with the legion manager and his condesending staff. We had a few problems early on in the event ? The whole legion staff seemed to ignore us after dinner ? They grouped together at the bar with the manager/bartender enjoying them self's,while we fended for our-self's. Mike the cater and his wife did go the extra mile to meet our needs. So a BIG THANK YOU TO MIKE (Fatman) and his wife (sorry I did not get her name) Great catering with a bad venue.
