My husband and I had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Somerville Elks. From start to finish, the wedding was perfect (about 120 guests) . We put our personal touches in, and the staff took care of the rest. It was easy to plan with them, ran perfectly smooth, and was the time of our life. We cannot count how many of our guests told us it was the best wedding they have been to!! The food was fantastic!! (well prepared and beautifully presented). I just wish I ate more from the massive table of desserts (was too busy having fun)! If you are looking to have "a big wedding", but want a great value, this is your place. I cannot say enough good things about the staff and facilities. Our guests raved about the food, the drinks, and the service...and how they "never saw an Elks lodge like this". The wedding package is all inclusive, and you get everything. This Elks "Lodge" is very supportive in the community and it was an easy decision to have our wedding there, knowing that not only were we getting exactly what we wanted, but also that our money would be going to a non-profit. For small or large events, they will make it yours.
I attended a wedding at the Somerville Elks last night and I have to say, I'm a bit of a food snob so I was a little nervous. But oh my gosh....the food was AMAZING!!!! The bride and groom wanted an island twist so the chef made jerk chicken and plantains....Delicious! The mushroom ravioli seemed to be a crowd favorite too! Props to the chef and team at the elks for everything they do. The service and facility was impeccable! I look forward to planning my own events there in the future!
Just had my daughters first birthday party yesterday... from beginning to end everyone was truly amazing! Staff is super accommodating!! Jenny was our maitre d and banquet manager was wonderful. Each and every server was friendly and helpful. Jim the general manager and executive chef (who I emailed back and forth with quite often!!) was wonderful with the answering questions about menus and catering to all of our needs and concerns!! FOOD WAS DELICIOUS!! I HIGHLY recommend Somerville Elks!!
I had my wedding reception at the Elks. It was fabulous. The food was delicious and the staff was very accommodating. All of our guests were impressed. They even made a special meal for a guest that had dietary restrictions (without advanced notice). This is not an ordinary Elks club. I recommend checking it out for a party.
Our wedding rehearsal dinner was shaping up to be quite an event with our large families and a lot of out of town guests. We were looking for something unique, and since our wedding was in October I thought an Oktoberfest themed rehearsal dinner would be fun! My husband and I met with Chef Jim who helped us create an amazing menu featuring traditional German food (he even threw in some Irish twists for my husband's family visiting from Dublin). The entire evening was spectacular - the decorations were beautiful, the food was outrageous and the service was impeccable! Our guests had a great time, and it was such a fun way to kick off the weekend!
My daughter's sweet 16 birthday party was a great success because of the Elks. The staff was very helpful, the food was great and the room was perfect. I got a lot of feedback from people saying what a great event it was. Thanks!
