We toured about 10 venues in the Twin Cities when we moved here last year and decided to get married in our new home town. We were looking for a place that was classic, connected with the ourdoors, and personal. Mendakota Country Club was all of these items and more! The clubhouse itself is simple and beautiful with high wood ceilings which is a lovely backdrop for any decorations. The grounds of the country club and the golf course were absolutely gorgeous, especially in August, when all the flowers are blooming and the sunshine is warm. Perry, the coordinator at Mendakota, was so fun to work with - that man has personality and is VERY good at what he does! He gave us great suggestions on how to best spend our budget to maximize the vision we imagined. He knew the important things to do to support traditions, like a wine pour and a signature drink, and he was also very flexible to let us decorate the way we wanted. He helped us to determine the layout of the room to hold our 130 guests, a big harvest table for the bridal party and their dates, and a band with a ample dance floor. It turned out absolutely awesome!! Also the food was very good. We had salmon and filet mignon, and we received so may comments from our guests on how perfectly cooked they were! The waitstaff were exceptional and did so many small things to make the day special, including opening doors for guests, caring to small decoration details, cleaning plates/drinks in a timely manner, and helping guests with random requests. We were extremely impressed with everything!!!! Highly recommend this venue.

Our August 13th wedding was a perfect day! We can honestly say that we are so happy we chose Mendakota Country Club for our ceremony and reception venue. Paige and Perry were easy to communicate with and helped us to personalize our day. On our wedding day Paige was so helpful, we cannot say enough about how great she is! A special shout out to Alan, one of our bartenders, our guests loved him and went on and on about how personable and friendly he was. We would not change a thing about our day! Thanks to everyone at Mendakota!!!

The service is topnotch from start to finish. My guests could not get over how incredibly beautiful everything was. I was planning on an outdoor wedding but mother nature had other things in mind. Paige, the coordinator for our big day, was able to take my planned outdoor ceremony indoors within 15 minutes. My guests raved about how beautiful the ceremony was and how impressive the service was. The food was a huge hit and everything was ready right on time. If you want a place for both ceremony and reception with great places to take photos, an amazing dinner selection, PERFECT service from start to finish, and a price that is actually affordable in the twin cities then you NEED to be at Mendakota Country Club. We even had friends who are looking at venues ask for the info they were so impressed!

We had our ceremony and reception at Mendakota in the summer of 2016 and hands-down it was the best day of my life not only because I was marrying the man of my dreams but because Mendakota had a huge hand in making the day so special. It was on-and-off raining and Perry and Paige did such a fantastic job at keeping everything coordinated and organized that I felt so comfortable knowing everything was going to go smoothly because they were the ones I got to work with. The staff was so friendly and attentive. Huge thanks to barkeepers Debbie and Alan; people were telling me how awesome the two of you were! The food was also so good, I mean who doesn't like cheesy potatoes with their chicken?! Overall, I couldn't of asked for a better experience for my guests - all thanks to Mendakota. I highly recommend this venue due to the friendly staff, cleanliness, beautiful views, delicious food, supurb service and attention to detail. Thank you, thank you!

Sundays are a great value at this location. Our guests are still talking about how beautiful the venue was. The food and staff were great. We had a lot of food allergies that they needed to accommodate and they did a great job with that.

Our wedding at the Mendakota Country Club was amazing. It was the best night of our lives. Excellent experience across the board from planning to end of the night. The food and service as simply outstanding. The room set up was beautiful, very accomidating of a large crowd. Our guest's had a great time, even enjoying s'mores roasted on the outside patio fire. Perry and Paige were a pleasure to work with. We wish we could do it again! Highly reccomend choosing the Mendakota for your wedding.

We held our social hour and reception at Mendakota. The Lakeside room with the wooden beams is beautiful. We received many compliments on the venue and how beautiful everything was. The grounds are immaculately maintained with beautiful flowers around the building and the golf course. We were able to use all three rooms on the upper level and patio for our June wedding. It was a beautiful day and guests floated in and out all night. Perry is very responsive and attentive to detail to ensure the event goes flawlessly. We served walleye and chicken for our dinner and received many compliments on the food (and on our appetizers too!). The wine at Mendakota was also amazing! We loved having our wedding here and the building and facility is truly unique to make it seem like your typical country club wedding.

Such a gorgeous, gorgeous venue with a lot of space and natural light. Perry was our main contact and he was incredibly helpful (although his emails are a little short-he's more communicative in person) and Nikki actually helped us clean up at the end of the night. I also appreciated Nikki checking in with me frequently during our reception to make sure I was happy with everything, and to be sure everything was exactly what I wanted. We loved having our reception there.
