Amazing experience at this venue
Choosing the Grain House at the Olde Mill Inn for our wedding ceremony and reception was the best decision we made. We wanted an all inclusive wedding, in a cozy location with lots of good food and drinks. We got exactly that and more. Our maître d’ John Lietz was so great to work with. He answered every question we had, helped us coordinate with vendors, helped us navigate the menu and other selections. One of the biggest perks was that John and his staff set up all decorations (minus live florals) so we barely had to lift a finger. All we had to do was drop off boxes with any favors, decorations, seating chart, etc, and they took care of the rest. We didn’t want to have friends or family do any work during our wedding day, we just wanted them to enjoy it. That’s what a stress-free wedding is all about. After the reception was over our decorations were packed up and were waiting in our suite along with the top tier of our cake, and a bottle of champagne and strawberries on our bed. And yes, a huge suite on the wedding night is included too.
Our guests also raved about how much amazing food there was. The cocktail hour food was delicious. The open bar is fully stocked. John also worked with us on the timing of the reception so out guests can dance between the appetizer and the dinner entree and the cake cutting. Our cake was also included in our price and we got to pick from two different bakeries. The service all throughout the reception was impeccable. Guests were tended to promptly and some of them told us how amazing the service is. John was with us all day and made sure we never needed anything. At cocktail hour, he brought us plates of hors d’oeuvres to make sure we ate. They took care of us so well it truly make us feel very special on our day.
We really can’t rave enough about what a wonderful experience we had having our wedding here. Our guests loved it, we loved it, and we can’t recommend it enough

Excellent Wedding Service
My daughter’s wedding was at the Grain House on January 11, 2020. I can not say enough to express how professional and experienced all the staff members were. A special shout out to our maitre d Gabe and our table side server Carlos. From food to rooms to service everything was excellent!!!

Best day ever! Our wedding was the absolute perfect day. The olde mill inn is the best place you could ever imagine. The food was amazing, everyone keeps telling us that it was one of the best weddings they have ever been too. John was our maitre d and he was the best. He kept everything running smoothly the whole time. Our rehearsal dinner was at the restaurant grain house and it was just as amazing. We can not thank Olde Mill Inn enough for everything we imagined and more.

We got married at the Grain House a few weeks ago and could not have been happier with the experience. We planned the wedding over less than 6 months from out of state, and Lindsay and Gabriel could not have been more helpful. I keep hearing how beautiful the venue is and how delicious the food was. We couldn’t have chosen a more perfect place to celebrate.

Wow where do I begin? Lindsay Stewart was our sales person. Any questions we had she was quick to answer and was willing to work with us. The Olde Mill Inn is absolutely beautiful inside and outside. Our matre’d John Lietz was fantastic. Every single review we read about him is true-HE IS THAT GOOD. I wish I could give this venue 10 stars because honestly 5 is not enough. Our guests kept raving about the venue, cocktail hour, dinner, the service. So many people asked how we found such a beautiful venue. The service was excellent. Many guests said they didn’t even have to get up to go to the bar, drinks were being brought to them. Cocktail hour was amazing:mini chicken and waffles, grilled cheese/tomato soup shooter, beef wellington. My girls and I got ready in the suite, wow was it beautiful and huge! The hotel staff is fantastic, the courtyard is amazing day or night. I would absolutely recommend Olde Mill Inn to everyone and anyone I know. It was better then our wildest dreams. We are SO sad it is over, but our hope is that we get to be a guest at a wedding at Olde Mill Inn

Gabriel is the best! The night was perfect. Perfect! Not one thing went wrong…nothing! Gabriel was amazing and so attentive to not just us but to our families as well. The staff at our wedding was the best. Drinks in hand at all times before you realized you needed one! The food was amazing as well as the desserts! I really can’t thank them all enough for making our day truly so magical and special and of course all about us! The hotel is so accommodating, from the breakfast to the bridal rooms! You will not be disappointed 💕

Book this venue! I am beyond happy with having our reception at the Grain House at the Olde Mill Inn. The style of the building is so cute and vintage exactly what I love. We had our reception in the Hunt Room with about 89 people. The size of the room was perfect for the amount of guests we had. The staff was amazing especially our Matrie’D. They made everything go so smoothly and perfect. There was not one thing I would change about our day. Also the food was amazing everyone enjoyed it. I think the most convenient part about having our reception here is that our guests got to stay at the olde mill inn which was fantastic, nobody had to worry about shuttles or anything. I would recommend this place to anybody you will not regret it.

Beautiful Fall Wedding!We could not have picked a better venue for our perfect Fall wedding. We saw 12 venues, and Olde Mill Inn was the 12th, and we booked it the second we saw it! We met with Lindsay first, and she was awesome. Any questions we had, she answered in a timely manner, and she made us feel comfortable. As the bride, I was very stressed out, but OMI made everything so easy for me while planning our special day. A couple of months before the wedding, we were notified that Gabriel would be our maitre d. Just like Lindsey, Gabriel was amazing. We would email him, call him, and even text him if we had any last minute questions or requests, and he would always get back to us right away with an answer. Everything went so smoothly the day of the wedding due to Gabriel and his team! Our guests are still talking about our wedding, how amazing the food was, and how everything was simply perfect. None of this would have been possible if it weren’t for Lindsey, Gabriel, and everyone at OMI. Would 100% recommend to any future bride and grooms! Thank you for giving us the wedding we always dreamed of!

Great place for a big wedding! The Olde Mill Inn was phenomenal. The ballroom and courtyard were beautiful. The food was all fantastic, and there was something for everyone. All of the staff, including our maitre d’ Gabriel, were a pleasure to work with. My wife and I would highly recommend to everyone!

We held our wedding (of about 200 people) at the Olde Mill Inn on August 4th 2018 and could not recommend it more! The venue has a rustic yet elegant feel, with the convenience of all guests being able to stay at the hotel. We didn’t realize how much time and effort this saved both us and our guests. Additionally, even with nearly 200 guests and a 9-piece band, the cocktail rooms and ballroom never felt crowded. Having cocktail hour outside in the courtyard made our summer wedding even more perfect! From start to finish, the Olde Mill Inn exceeded all expectations. We worked with Lindsay Stewart in sales and then were lucky to have John Lietz as our maître d’. Both were absolutely amazing and so helpful. The service and food were excellent and we have not stopped getting rave reviews from our guests. Many even took the time to call or write a note telling our parents how beautiful the day was. We have been to many weddings across New Jersey but really feel that there is something special about the Olde Mill Inn and are so happy we chose this venue for our special day!
