"Fabulous job that night and the guests have said the building and the view were spectacular. They also said it was the best wedding food and entertainment they have ever had at a wedding. As a matter of fact one of our guests said we have ruined all future weddings for them by comparison"

"We host a social every year for our clients. By far this was one of the best! Your staff was money! I can’t say enough, friendly, courteous, accommodating …Lynn was an amazing conductor, orchestrating everything to run flawlessly. If we find ourselves in New Orleans again, we will be sure to be in touch."

USM Athletic Trainers

"Thank you so much for everything you did for Natalie and Shaun's wedding reception.  It was absolutely perfect, from the food to the service to the set-ups.  I know we were pretty detail-oriented, but you were so wonderful to work with and we were so comfortable that the reception would be terrific with you in charge.  We felt taken care of from the moment we entered the reception…. We simply could not have asked for more.  You can be sure that we would recommend Pat O's on the River to anyone looking for a venue in New Orleans.  You made a very special day for our family simply perfect and we just can't thank you enough."
