This is our second year having our holiday party at McMenamins.  Jackie is a pleasure to work with and makes the planning so easy and smooth.  It is a pleasure to work with someone who is so organized and committed to seeing we have the best experience possible. The food was delicious.  As I have always experienced at McMenamins, the service exceeded my expectations.  The servers were friendly, polite and attentive. Thank you for the wonderful experience.  We will definitely be back next year!

Brad, Precise Flight, Inc.

This is the 3rd meeting I have planned and Jackie Johnson is, by far, the best event planner I’ve worked with.  She never complained about my constant questions and provided brilliant solutions to problems that arose.  Each and every service staff I encountered were on task, helpful, resourceful and professional in a genuinely accommodating manner.  We had plenty of delicious food and the gluten free pizzas were greatly appreciated.

Teresa, OSSS Winter Meeting

I just wanted to write and say how great of a time we had during the event we held at your facility.  I was blown away at the service we received from Nanette and Shelly and the food was fantastic, including the on the spot info-mercial I had Shelly do giving the group a history lesson of the building, everyone really enjoyed it.  We’ll be back, I promise you!

Scott, Deschutes Optical
