McKinley was by far one of the best decisions we have ever made together. All of our guests had nothing but positive comments on our wedding between the venue and the food. They all had such a wonderful time and were just amazed by the service. My wife (Carly) and I could not have asked for a better place to have our reception. Alisha Fisher was by far such a pleasure to work with and we truly appreciated her services. She truly showed that she cared about making our day special and that we were satisfied throughout the whole process. Thank you so much Alisha!! -Tom Bestor
Everything came out better than I ever could have hoped for, the staff was wonderful, food was fantastic, and the room was beautiful. I was getting compliments from not only all of the guests but also from a couple of my vendors that have never been to the McKinley. They told me that it was one of the nicest places they have ever been to and hoped they could return for another wedding. The planning process was basically a breeze, Alisha was beyond helpful and willing to jump through any hoop I threw her way. She helped me coordinate everything from 3 hours away; as I live out of town, which would be difficult for any bride but she was able to pull it all together so effortlessly. Once everything came together the entire venue just looked spectacular and everything went off without a hitch. I could not be happier with how the day turned out. -Chelsea Charles
I just had my wedding at The McKinley in June. I cannot say enough about them! From the food to the staff everything was amazing. We did the buffet and everyone has their food in a timely manner and the food was amazing! The staff was so helpful and accommodating. Working with Alisha during the whole planning process made things so much easier for me. She was very helpful, and made things run so smooth for my husband and I. I would definitely recommend having your wedding here! -Desiree Lee
Had my daughter Carly Schrader’s wedding here on July 18th. We had wonderful compliments from our guests. I can’t say enough about how wonderful it was to work with Alisha Fisher. She is very personable and sweet and knows how to get everything just right for your special day. The banquet master – Pam and all the servers and bartenders were just spot on that day. We appreciated their hospitality as well. The food was soooooo good. We had the buffett, and everything we picked was to our liking! It was wonderful. The Mckinley was the perfect place to have a wedding and I am so glad we chose it for the venue. Everything was perfect! -Elaine Schrader
I must say that by far the McKinley is the most perfect and huge venue I have ever seen! I was a little hesitant of the place when we first met with Alisha, but once the big day finally came, everything she promised it could be, became reality! Our friends and family CAN NOT stop talking about how it was the best reception they have ever been to, and they have been to A LOT of weddings. Plus, the food was superb! I would definitely recommend either the Mediterranean Stuffed Chicken or the Potato Encrusted Cod. It makes us feel good knowing that we made a good decision in placing our reception in the hands of Alicia and the staff at the McKinley. COULD NOT have gone any more perfect! Thank you so, so much!! -Jonathan Tiffany
The McKinley was where my son Bryan Wagner and now beautiful wife, Melissa had their wedding reception. I was very impressed with the professionalism of the staff, the excellent service of the food and the personalization of it being ” their day!” I would like to say Thank you to all who made it so special! I can’t say enough on the excellent choice that they had made for their venue. -Terri Wagner
My husband and I just recently had our wedding reception at The McKinley. It was beyond wonderful! We worked closely with Alisha and her staff for over a year and from the small to big questions everything was answered. They were all extremely helpful and our wedding reception was beautiful! We didn’t have to worry about a thing. Alisha made wedding planning easy and fun! There is no better venue out there! Thank you to Alisha and the McKinley staff for everything! -Megan Werner
I recently held my reception at the McKinley (approx.190 guests), and couldn’t have been happier with the entire experience. From the beginning of the planning process, Alisha (Director of Catering & Sales) and Jesse (General Manager) worked to make sure that my husband and I were happy with every small detail – from the room setup and food choices to the addition of an ice cream bar to our package! They really made the process less stressful and more enjoyable. The staff, food, service, and ambiance was also exceptional. Dinner was served to all 190 of my guests in what seemed like record time. The staff was friendly, professional, and responsive to any requests. The food was delicious – especially the chicken cordon bleu and the maple soy salmon. The setup of the room was perfect for both the cocktail hour and the reception, without feeling cramped. The dance floor is huge and accommodates a large crowd. I’m sad that the big day is over, but I love to hear my guests still raving about the event and how wonderful everything was at the McKinley! I would recommend this venue to anyone looking for an upscale location in the Binghamton area. -Jessica Mirabito
McKinley was an amazing place to have our wedding! My husband is in the airforce and once we found out we were being stationed in Germany, we wanted to have our wedding before we left but that meant planning a wedding in 2 months…. Alisha was a life saver!!!! She made my dream wedding come true all within 2 months. She provided contacts to vendors and support, helped take all the stress off of me, and made my dream day come true. Was understanding with payments and kept in contact with me every few days! She was amazing, I couldn’t of asked for anything else from her! The venue was gorgeous and the food was amazing!!! Definitely consider McKinley for your big day ladies 🙂 -Justine Clarke
The McKinley was the placed I always wanted for my reception, even before I was engaged. I used to work at the McKinley and I know all of the hard work that goes on behind the scenes of a wedding reception. It was such a nice feeling the be the bride and be on the other end of things. Alisha was absolutely fantastic as she guided me through the planning process, and was so flexible with my busy work schedule. The tasting they had was perfect, and let me have another look at things set up before I had my big day. The whole space is completely stunning, from the entrance, to the sunk in dance floor. Plenty of room for dancing, eating, mingling and for a photobooth! This facility really has it all, and does everything to not only make this all about you but make it perfect for you. The food was amazing, and it was awesome to hear all my guests still talking about it weeks after the wedding. Everyone serving did a great job keeping the dinner flow going while keeping the place clean. The layout is perfect and the music could be heard from every corner of the room, and the decorations across the high ceiling were beautiful. My wedding day was perfect and I have Alisha and the McKinley to thank for it, I’m so grateful for all of their hardwork while making my reception perfect. -Melissa Binkewicz
