Everything went great.  All my guests had a lot of fun and my boyfriend was genuinely surprised.  Everyone complimented how nice the venue was and the food was really good too.  We had a mixed crowd of different ages so it was great that everyone liked the place regardless of age.  I thought the price was very reasonable – I researched a lot before booking and I thought that this was the most reasonably priced venue I found to host my party and it was really a much nicer set-up than a lot of pricier places I looked at.  It was especially nice having a truly private room with it’s own entrance.  Everyone at Eat, Drink & Be Merry was very helpful in making suggestions and answering all my questions.

I  just wanted to thank you for setting it up and please thank the staff,  Loren(waitress),  Eleni(bartender), and Eric(manager).  They all were very helpfull and made the meeting run very smooth for the entire day.

Thanks again,



Hi, I just wanted to say thank you for all your help in planning my party. I had a blast the other night and couldn’t have asked for a more perfect 25th birthday! The Speakeasy was incredible and the staff very helpful and friendly. I will definitely recommend your services to all my friends.

Thanks again,



Tom’s 40th birthday party was perfect in every way. Rachel was so organized and on top of things – I didn’t have to do a single thing. She reminded me about everything (like when did I want the birthday cake to come out) and she made sure that everything went so smoothly.  I was really able to enjoy the party because I didn’t have to worry about a thing.  All of the people working at the party were just so nice and pleasant to be around.  The bottom line is that we were so happy with everything – the food, the staff, the room – everything. It was all exactly as we had hoped.  Thanks so much for all of the hard work to make it right!





Thank you for checking in! Our party went really well. We tried some different appetizers this time and they were well-received.  Everyone had a great time. Thank you so much for getting this set up for us!

My party turned out very well.   I ended up having exactly 10 people, which was lucky considering how cold it was!   I really appreciated the thorough contact and follow up with Niki.   Half of the bars I contacted never even got back to me, so it was nice to have someone reaching out. 





I do apologize for not getting back to you sooner!  The party was a GREAT SUCCESS!  The place and the people were excellent!!  It was a pleasure working with you and your team!  I will definitely be in contact with you guys to plan my next event.  I will post my feedback on your website.

Thank you so much for helping me with this event!  You guys are wonderful!

Best regards,

Hi Christine,

I just wanted to drop you a line to say the party last Saturday was an absolute blast. Your staff was incredible about everything. Eric watching the room was above and beyond and the server Beth was fantastic as well. Thanks for a great time and please pass along my thanks!
