Kathryn Elzerman Curry

Ebben is the best! We had planned to host our wedding and reception at Arlington’s, but of course, COVID changed up our plans. We decided to host our reception in our backyard. Ebben was willing to work with us to set up some catering options. He created an awesome combination of sandwich toppings that everyone loved. The Arlington team even wrapped our sandwiches, packaged up veggies, and made fruit kabobs to keep the food as COVID friendly as possible. They were even able to deliver on such a busy day! Communicating with Ebben was really easy as well. He was always quick to respond and making the changes was effortless. (All via email and a couple of phone calls!) We will definitely be keeping Arlington’s in mind for any future events, and you should definitely choose to work with Ebben and his team! Thank you guys so much once again!

I cannot speak highly enough of Arlington's, especially when it comes to our wedding. We have worked extensively with Ebben Moore, and he has been AMAZING. Super flexible, understanding, and easy to talk to and get in touch with. This whole virus has thrown everything into chaos, and he has continued to work with us through it all. Not only that, but the facility is gorgeous, and they're very affordable. I HIGHLY recommend Arlington's!!! Please support local!

Ebben and his team truly outdid themselves while hosting our wedding in their upstairs venue. On top of being such a gorgeous building, every single person made sure we were taken care of.

We had the best time and our guests loved the food. The bartenders were phenomenal, and Dustin was so helpful to every single one of our guests.

They could not have been nicer or more fun to work with. Thank you for holding our special day and for being the absolute perfect venue!

My husband and I got married at Arlington’s on 12/28/19. Ebben was incredibly helpful with the planning and execution of our special day. Every time we met with him, he was on time and prepared to answer all of our questions. He was extremely responsive via email as well.

For the night of our wedding, Ebben and his staff were kind, attentive, and efficient. The pasta bar that we had was wonderful and our guests had a lot of nice things to say about the tasty meal.

I would highly recommend Arlington’s for any and all of your party needs. The service cannot be beaten.

Had my daughter's bridal shower here! Perfect! Unique. Great for a 150 or smaller event. Highly recommend it for any age. Especially if you like history and class.
