  • “We have hosted several events at The Ballroom for both staff and clients, and will continue to do so. The food is great and the service is quick and responsive, most of the time anticipating and responding to things before I have even noticed. The entire staff is great to work with and provide the best level of service. Thank you Shawna & team – we look forward to seeing you again!”
