We didn't want anyone to go hungry and the food was great! Thanks again for all you help!” –Lori

“Hi Jennifer, it was a pleasure working with you as well. I cannot remember the lady’s name who worked both evenings, but I really wanted to give her a shout out to you because she did an excellent job. She kept calm and on task and I felt horrible for her that she had to make those last minute arrangements with the chef and staff. My apologies on this. She deserves a pat on the back and praise. Please thank her again for me.” –Karen

“Jimmy's Event Center was very easy to work with. Jennifer the coordinator was always responsive when we had questions or needed anything. We loved that we could have our ceremony and reception in the same room and our guests could walk to the connected hotel. It was nice that they handled all of the food and beverage. This made things very streamlined. The serving staff - waitresses and bartenders were friendly and professional. The Event Center Ballroom is very large, has new carpet and wallpaper, and they have tulle and lights hung from the ceiling which is very pretty!” - Kristina & Brad

Wounded Warrior Project - 3/31/19
“Jennifer, I just wanted to offer a short note of appreciation for the work you and the entire staff of Jimmy’s put in to make our Gala an outstanding success! Everyone is so professional and courteous, and always able to flex to add a table here or there (the Silent Auction team got a big influx of items Saturday they were not expecting!) – and every request was handled quickly - for which we were all very thankful! Everyone that has attended our event at Jimmy’s has been amazed at how beautifully everything is setup, the ballroom is always perfect! Please tell everyone thanks from the bottom of my heart!” - Tom

Anchor Paper Company (Holiday Party) - 1/12/19
“Good Afternoon Sarah, I have heard nothing but great things about the holiday party last Saturday! Everyone had a great time, they loved the wide open room, the decorations, the windows that showed the outside especially when the lights turned on and everyone loved the food. All in all it was an awesome night! Mary was a rock star that night too, if we were running out of any food she would come and ask me if we would like to reorder anything. I greatly appreciate the staff, the cooks, and the bar tender that worked that Saturday night! Thank you for an awesome Holiday party and I hope we will be booking with you guys in the future!” - StephanieWedding Reception

Hi Cindi, We enjoyed our reception so much as Jimmy’s. The service was fantastic! The food was delicious! Steven and Grace

Cindi - I just wanted to thank you for putting on such a nice event for us.  Mary was fantastic - she was all over the place helping.  When the bartender got a tad overwhelmed, she helped with beer pouring.  That was awesome and she deserves every bit of praise you can give her.  The same goes for the bartender and other staff working the event. 

Thank you Cindi, Everything turned out great and you were so accommodating! The wait staff was great as well! I am so glad that I chose Jimmy's as our reception venue. I will be sure to give Jimmy's a 5-star rating on the WeddingWire! Becky

Dear Cindy and staff,
Our grooms dinner was amazing! After I did my little decorating the real treat came when our guests arrived. Everyone raved at the wonderful heartland buffet. The presentation of the buffet was beautiful! But most importantly your asset is your wait staff, they couldn’t of been more accommodating. They attended to our every needs, but I found more astonishing was that they suggested little comforts like lighting, temperature, music volume to enhance our evening. Please relay this to them as they are your diamonds to make your venue shine! With grateful thanks, The Adams Family

Cindi I just wanted to say thank you for all of your help in organizing our employee appreciation event.  Your venue was wonderful, your staff was amazing and the food was fantastic.  We have had nothing but compliments about this event - The best ever!  I look forward to working with you again. Jackie

Many thanks to Jimmy’s for renting us a banquet room, tables and outlets to plug in our crock pots.  And let’s not forget that cash bar to help us cool down from some hot chili.  Jimmy’s wait staff was, again, friendly, helpful and professional.  Thank you Mary, Sharon and the Crew at Jimmy’s, you are awesome. Shawn Hanna

It was a GREAT day for us – food was excellent!  We had a tech guy to help us (we just are NOT a tech savvy organization) and your staff are kind, considerate, professional and cute as heck!!! Hope we can do it again next year!  Thanks Cindi for all your hand holding – and for knowing about Alfredo sauce              Kathy Weaver Ally People Solutions

"The thing that made Jimmy's the best was not the reasonable price for this area. It was not the delicious food that we received so many compliments on. It was not even their beautiful decorations. It was the event coordinator. Cindi was absolutely amazing. She met with us many times to do food tastings, look at decorations, and talk about everything related to our reception. When the table runners that we wanted were not in stock, she quickly got other samples from a different vendor and offered us the same price. We had cupcakes at our wedding and even though she was supposed to charge us a fee for them, she did not. In addition, we dropped off our place cards and a few other things the day before and she personally set them up for us. We were very happy that we had our reception at Jimmy's!"
Cindy B, TheKnott.com

"Cindi - The three-foot party subs were a hit and the presentation was awesome!

"I have nothing but great things to say about Jimmy's Event Center. I had my wedding reception here. Justine and her team are true professionals and were able to set us up for the event and carry out the operations of the day flawlessly. No hiccups. Justine was so pleasant to work with and went above and beyond. The gazebo outside of the garden ballroom was stunning, every guest wanted their picture taken! Justine's passion for making the Bride and Groom happy and comfortable is clearly shown through her never ending hard work. I would recommend Jimmy's Event Center to any couple looking for a smooth, fun, and classy venue!"

"The party was a huge success!  Please thank all of your staff on our behalf. I have received only positive feedback from the clients and staff about the building, dining area, and especially the service.  They commented that the servers were exceptional!"

So wonderful to work with her!!! No request was a big deal!! She went the extra mile and was very cheerful!!! Also I want to thank you, Cindi, for opening up the extra room to us. That was great to have and so appreciated that as well with 19 ladies in the room it gave us some extra space.
