Birthday Party JAN 2018

Thanks for your email. We (my entire family and friends) had a wonderful time at the party on Saturday. You and your staff were fabulous – the party ran so smoothly. With regards to the food – my complements to the Chef – it was all delicious. People raved about the potato pancakes the veal and the knockwurst/bratwurst – not sure which one it was. Should something come up where we need a catering hall – we will definitely give you a call.

As I’ve never been there before, I was also so happy that the facility was “handicap” accessible and the parking was so convenient.”

We contracted the Cannon Gate Catering for my daughter’s Quinceañera.

Ms. Blanca was very helpful with the suggestions for the settings and very professional, she prepared all the eatery salon amazingly. The Bartender and Ms. Diane were very helpful as well and keep their areas running smoothly. The kitchen personnel were very supportive with the food and cake distribution.

Your terrific management made everything run smoothly and your flexibility in opening the Pub so that our guests could have shelter when it rained was so considerate- as well as your sensitivity in bringing me a plate of food when you noticed that I could not get away from our guests long enough to grab an appetizer.

Mother/Son & Father/Daughter Dances JAN 2017

The Cannon Gate Catering and Conference Center assisted CYS in running both the Mother Son and Father Daughter Dances. We would not have been able to have had such successful events if it wasn’t for the Cannon Gate staff. They helped organize and set up both events, along with CYS.

Barrella/Feldstein Wedding OCT 2014

Sharon and I just wanted to extend our profound thanks and gratitude to you and your staff for making sure our day was perfect.

We have both been to many dinners and receptions at various locations throughout the state over the years, and our experience at the Cannon Gate Conference Center put all of them to shame. Our guests were raving over both the food and the service they were provided. You and your staff ensured that Sharon and I had everything we needed throughout the evening. Everything was truly perfect.

You and your team should be extremely proud of what you have accomplished at the facility.

Again, we can’t thank you enough for making our special day even more memorable.

Zaragoza Wedding SEPT 2014

What is there even to say??? Everything went off without a single hitch. We seriously have not herd ONE complaint about anything.

What we do know is that we had a great time! The (little) food we had was excellent! I can confidently say that the two most positive things (besides the band) that we heard back on from our guests were in regards to the cocktail hour and stations for dinner.

One area that Beth and I want to particularly mention is in regards to your staff. They were BY FAR the best, most attentive staff that I’ve ever encountered in a “banquet type” facility. I hate that I can’t remember names, but everyone we came in contact with including the bartenders and servers were phenomenal. They all went out of our way to ensure any of our needs were met or exceeded.

The physical facility truly catered to our needs. The unique setup allowed for dancing and dining all at the same time which I don’t know where else you can find that.

The grounds surrounding the building allowed for us to get some stunning pictures

Thanks so much to you and Colleen for insuring the night went as planned, we TRULY appreciate it, and you can be assured we will always have good things to say about Cannon Gate to our friends and family in the future.

Thanks again!

Notte Wedding JULY 2014

Thank you! Everything went wonderfully, my guests could not stop talking about how nice it was there and how good the food was! We will be back thats for sure! In fact you might receive a call from my aunt for her daughter’s wedding!

Ashton Wedding JULY 2014

Thank you, Jeff! Everything was awesome! I was incredibly impressed by the food and staff and I think all of our guests were as well. People loved all the stations during cocktail hour. I will send you some pictures once I get them from the photographer and you can use them for your website or marketing if you would like too. It just may take a couple of weeks/months. I will definitely consider Canon Gate in the future and have been telling people about it so they consider having their event there as well.

Thanks so much for everything!!

New Jersey Area Band Banquet JAN 2014

I want you to know we enjoyed the banquet so much Saturday night at your facility. The food was fabulous, as well as the service, pacing of the meal, and staff attentiveness to our wishes throughout the evening. Many commented to me on the quality of the food and how great it was. People also liked the roominess of the space, which made it easy for the guests to circulate around the room and visit. It was like a big family reunion. I can ‘t thank you enough for all your efforts. You will be our first choice when we have another event of this magnitude.

Thanks for all your help from the very beginning, help with planning the menu and responding to my many questions. You made this very easy.
