What are our event clients saying about Iron Front?

Iron Front was the perfect wedding venue for us! The place in and of itself is so beautiful and unique, no decorations are even needed! It was absolutely gorgeous and cozy, with great lighting and candles. It was so relaxed, casual, and rustic, yet classy and high end at the same time. Our guests could not stop talking about it and were trying to find reasons to have a party there! Mike and his team were so accommodating, flexible and easy to get in touch with. They went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of and to help us with tasks even outside of their responsibilities (such as music). Mike’s demeanor, professionalism, and willingness to be open about any requests just made it so easy for us. The servers were friendly and willing to help with anything we asked of them. We, our guests included, cannot say enough about Iron Front. I wish we could go back and do it again! What a blessing for Lewisburg to have this unique place that makes you feel as though you are in the big city. To Mike and the staff at Ironfront, THANK YOU! We LOVED it and so did our guests.

From the first time I walked into Iron Front, I knew that it was the perfect venue for my fiance and I to celebrate our marriage with all our friends and family. The industrial style decor, brick walls, and large beautiful windows were breathtaking. Mike Matukaitis was able to answer every question or concern I had, and did so promptly and with great professionalism. The special day came, and when we walked into the room, we were amazed with how the it turned out to be more than we could have ever dreamed! The staff were welcoming, professional, and SO much fun! This was one of the best days of our lives, and it was obvious that Iron Front and its staff put immense thought into every single detail. We cannot thank them enough, and will be the first to recommend this beautiful location to anyone searching for their own wedding venue!

Iron Front was simply perfect for our rehearsal dinner of 80 guests. We worked closely with Mike and he was key in the planning process; always quick to respond to emails, phone calls, open to our ideas and very accommodating. For example, I casually mentioned that the new shipment of Smith Hawken lights that were boxed in the hall would add a beautiful effect to the room, and miraculously they were hanging on the night of the rehearsal dinner. The space is beautiful, set in a National Historic Landmark with attractive wooden tables and exposed brick and wood beams. Our guests complimented that it was trendy and upscale with a contemporary rustic feel. The floor-to-ceiling windows give it openness, and the natural wood and the dozens of votive candles set a romantic mood and warm atmosphere. If you want a beautiful venue managed by a competent and caring staff, check out the Iron Front! Highly recommended!

Iron Front is one of the best venues I’ve ever worked with. I booked the Corner Room for a bridal shower and from the booking process, to planning, to execution, everything was so easy and organized. We worked with Caitlin Giampa as our coordinator and she was beyond amazing. She was so responsive and accommodating and made the entire planning process stress free. She went out of her way to make sure our event was a success. 100% recommend Iron Front for any event!
-Hannah Lovell

My organization has used Iron Front for a number of events. Mike and his team are great to work with! Mike is responsive to my emails and calls and willing to accommodate our requests for planning meetings, room layout changes, etc. He offers great suggestions based upon his experiences with a variety of business meetings, receptions, showers, parties, and other events. His staff is always very helpful with set up and are always very professional. I can not leave a review without mentioning the amazing design and decor of each and every room Iron Front has to offer. It’s a beautiful space! Our guests are always commenting on what a great addition this is to downtown Lewisburg.
