Overall the Westgate River Ranch is a very nice place. We were very happy with our cabin and the grounds. People at the front desk were very nice. The Smokehouse Grill left a bit to be desired. Not sure why after being seated we were basically ignored and had to ask another waitress to look into it. When food finally arrived (which was good)... the waitress upset a dish of ranch dressing all over.... never bothered to ask if it had gotten on anyone clothes or apologized or bothered to clean up the mess all over the floor and the bench behind us. As for the wedding.... I would NOT recommend this venue for a wedding. The wedding planner didn't seem to care about any plans that had been decided upon. It was as if she was being "bothered" to have to deal with anything related to this wedding. So, unless you don't mind being annoyed.... I would stay away from this place for a wedding. Although the setting/grounds are very nice..... its the little things that matter on wedding day. Our guests finally started to decorate the hall after seeing three half-hearted attempts by the staff to decorate. What part of burlap runners on the table didn't they understand.... so we had guests with scissors cutting and setting tables an hour before the wedding.... Grrrrr!!!
