Everything about this venue was amazing, from the ballroom, to the food, to the people. I loved working with Korah and Jax the made planning easy and were willing to listen to me gush about our upcoming nuptials. On the day of everything ran smoothly and the steaks were cooked perfectly. Thank you to the entire Greysolon team for making our day the happiest of our lives! More...

I loved every part of having our wedding at Greysolon. We had our ceremony and reception in the ballroom. The food was amazing, the venue was so beautiful and the staff was great to work with! All of my guests were very impressed. More...

As gorgeous as I remembered! The Greysolon Ballroom is a beautiful, elegant place. I have been here twice for the Zenith conference, and both times it has been very well set up, very well staffed, and very well attended. My one complaint would be that the bathrooms are always extremely hot! And also, it's a little hard to tell when they are occupied. Luckily, I was not one of the victims of this particular downside.

My daughter & I attended the Mother Daughter Dance here and all I can say is that they did such a great job! It was beautiful! We had so much fun dancing the night away and taking a bunch of silly pictures with all three of the photo booths that they had. The only thing that I could say they could have done better with is to possibly have more seating for dining. We were unable to find seats at the dining tables so we had to go sit in the other area near the bar to eat out dinner. More...

This is by far one of the best venues in Duluth for a wedding or group function. The architectural details and available dressing or meeting rooms provide lots of planning options. Been lucky to attend several events here and they are always top notch. Catering from Black Woods is guaranteed to be delicious. More...

We have been working Forever Bride for a year now and we recently renewed our subscription! Everyone who works there are so genuine and love what they do. They are a great way to make long lasting connections with other wedding vendors, and the mingles are so great! I have met so many fantastic people and are happy to be working with them. More...

I am a vendor with Forever Bride and have been very satisfied with my membership. I joined for education, community networking, and their bridal show. I get wonderful insight and referrals from fellow vendors and help from the Forever Bride staff whenever needed. They hold monthly optional, free networking and education meetings and each speaker is better than the last. Their Market gets me in front of a lot of brides in a short time span. I would recommend joining to enhance the growth and support of a small business . More...

We just got married here last weekend and it was amazing. The staff was fantastic. Any issue we could have had they fixed it. They even continually checked in on guests. Without them I know the night would have turned stressful, with them it was relaxing and a breeze. The room was just all we could have hoped for too, and I have gotten so many compliments on the food. They were just awesome!! More...

Forever Bride does a great job working with us to create content and promoting our wedding businesses. They help us announce promotions and work with us on joint marketing campaigns and we have seen a great ROI. We got lots of leads for the cost at their wedding fair last year so we are excited to participate again in 2018. More...

Beautiful venue for a wedding! 4 stars for not enough bathrooms, and no baby changing station in the men's room. Food and drinks were awesome! The lavender martini is my absolute favorite drink glad I was able to get it! Also I get that the corset top is blackwater's uniform but for service at a wedding I felt it was inappropriate attire.

We got married in the Moorish Room in June, and it was INCREDIBLE! First off, the whole staff was ahhh-mazing through the planning process. I am type A/OCD and planned our entire wedding, and I cannot tell you how many emails and phone calls I had with them. They were beyond helpful, detail-oriented, and patient haha. Almost all of our vendors had worked within them before, and that took a lot of worry out of the process and big day. And when the big day came, to put it simply, everything ran like clockwork, and it was STUNNING! Our guests could not stop raving about how gorgeous it all was...and how much fun they had. Choosing Greysolon was THE BEST decision we made in planning our wedding. We are so happy! More...

The ballroom was a prefect fit for us! We used the grand ballroom for our ceremony and reception. The space worked perfectly for both! We also rented the moorish room for cocktail hour. Both rooms are very spacious and beautiful! Our service was very prompt and spot on from the time we first sat down with Jax to the very end! Our food was delicious to! I would recommend The Greysolon Ballroom to anyone and everyone! More...

We chose the Moorish room and could not have chosen a more perfect venue for our reception. The prexisting beauty of the room meant we didn’t have to do much to it for the occasion. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food was really good. We used their reccommended vendors for everything else and were pleased with how well all the vendors worked together. More...

Having recently been diagnosed with celiac disease, I was concerned enough about attending my wife's company Christmas party at Greysolon Plaza to call the event manager to ask if there would be gluten-free items in the planned buffet. I left a voice message as the manager was not available at the time I called. A little while later, her assistant called me back and made it quite clear that the staff was quite aware of and capable of serving celiac patients. She told me to tell the coat check person who I was and I would be handed a card to put at my table that would alert the wait staff to bring me a specially-prepared plate of gluten-free food. When I said that I did not want to draw attention to the situation, she said that they would handle it quite discreetly. Indeed, it all went true to what she said. The room captain took complete care of my needs, having my plate waiting for me at the end of the buffet line, bringing me a hot cider instead of allowing me to go get the hot chocolate, and arranging a special dessert for me also hidden away at the dessert line. No one at our table seemed to notice anything. I had a delicious meal and a worry-free evening and was treated like a truly important person by the entire staff. I wrote the company an email to thank them profusely for my excellent experience. This company also manages the Blackwood Restaurants and the Blackwater Lounge. So if you are celiac or gluten-intolerant, you can trust Greysolon and Blackwood to take care of you and provide you with safe, delicious food. Just let them know. They are quite aware of your needs and will treat you well. More...

I highly recommend Greysolon for your out of town wedding. They took care of everything for us, and it was beautiful and so well organized. We had the ceremony, dinner and dance in the Moorish room. When they ask if you want the decorations, say Yes! It was so pretty, and we didn't have to mess with that, I appreciated that they took a sincere interest in my new daughter in law's wants and advised her specifically about what worked with other weddings. Having the courtyard with the fountain to mingle in while they reset the room for dinner was lovely as well. It was the holidays, so it was also very nicely decorated. The food was excellent! We had a buffet and everything was fresh and hot. I also was so pleased that whenever we asked for something, the answer was always a yes, and they were eager to make everything work. Don't let the 10am rehearsal scare you. It was perfect. We also did the Grooms dinner at the Blackwoods the night before, and that was a great success. Have the Sheraton shuttle your group to that. Excellent caring service! More...

We were very happy with the responsiveness and willingness to work with us! Almost everything can be included in your package with Greysolon, up to you what you include, and the people are very nice. My only two complaints were that I didn't meet who would be in charge of running my wedding until the morning of and that some of the cleaning staff were slightly rude. The cleaning staff, the people that came and took plates, water, etc away, were in a hurry and some of the guests complained that the water was taken away early. They also put my cake away, which I was happy about at first but when we arrived home and opened the box it was completely ruined...I'm not sure if the staff did this or if the transport home was too much for our cake. I would just advise you put a bridesmaid or someone you trust in charge of watching your cake be put away if you take any home. Otherwise the venue was gorgeous and I didn't have any problems the night of, everything went smoothly. More...

We chose The Moorish Room for our wedding ceremony and reception. It was the best decision we made throughout the whole planning process. Kalysta and Jax guided us through the process and made things so simple and manageable. True professionals. The venue is breathtaking and the catering amazing. Our wedding was so beautifully executed thanks to their awesome staff. Our guests still rave about the room and how beautiful everything was! If you are looking for a venue for your event, you just can't do any better than Greysolon. We will use them again! More...

My best friend and now sister in law was married here. The venue itself is incredible, but what impressed me most was the staff. They were so very attentive and understanding. This was a very large wedding with a lot of unsupervised kids. The staff handled everything from getting the kids out of the food that was meant for a different time to bringing the bride wine ASAP right before the ceremony. They were urgent in assisting me with keeping the bride calm and happy. After 2 years of her planning and thousands of dollars, I wanted the best for her and I really felt supported in that by the greysalon staff. More...

I do not live in the area but if I did I would look to doing business with this company and inpericular Jax! More...

Working with Kalysta was awesome! She was so helpful during the planning process. We were trying to maintain a budget and she probably rewrote our invoice 15 times. She always was timely and willing to answer any questions you had, even questions that were wedding related but not Greysolon related. The night of the event went smoothly as well. They directed us when to go where and asked us a few questions throughout the evening to facilitate certain areas smoothly. I also have gotten lots of awesome compliments related to the dinner service. More...

I got married at Greysolon on 12/18/2015 and had a wonderful experience. From the time we booked until after the wedding, everyone at Greysolon was awesome. We booked with Jax, and then for the rest of my wedding planning I was in contact with Kalysta. Both Jax and Kalysta are so sweet and so helpful. They know ALL the ins and outs of planning a wedding and they were able to answer any questions I had. Kalysta was very on top of everything I needed and she helped me so much with everything. There wasn't a detail that was forgotten.

When I showed up at Greysolon the day of my wedding, Toni and Cora were managing for the night. Both of them were so helpful. They catered to anything I needed - at one point I was getting pretty wore out and Toni even brought me water. We had pales of ale and mimosas for everyone while we were getting ready and both were exactly as we expected.

My husband and I decided to have Greysolon do our centerpieces and other accents throughout the venue, and when I got there, a gentleman checked with me to make sure it looked how I wanted. I also brought some picture frames and other things into the venue and they made sure that it was all set up where and how I wanted.

The food was fantastic. We had the champagne chicken with gorgonzola gratin potatoes and green beans. We had it plated, and it was served very quickly. Many of our guests have already commented on how good the food was. We had a couple vegetarians at our wedding, and Greysolon staff had no problem accommodating.

From the time I booked until the time the wedding was over, I felt like Greysolon met every need that I had. The venue itself is gorgeous enough for me to recommend it to anyone, but the staff made the experience one I'll never forget.

Despite the construction going on the enhance the historical aspects of this great building, the space was beautiful and you would have never even known any construction was happening! We came from 2 states away to get married here and were told me so many guests that this was a wedding like they've never seen before!

We host many of our events with Blackwoods.

We love supporting businesses that support us and Blackwoods is definitely one of them! Special thanks to Jax and her crew. They are remarkable professionals and try to invite other businesses into the loop whenever appropriate-to partner with them is to partner with the Duluth business community. More...

We held the wedding reception for our daughter at this incredible venue last month. Our event was held in the Grand Ballroom - a stunningly beautiful room. The staff who assisted us throughout the process were simply amazing. They assisted us with every detail and the service delivery was flawless. The end-to-end inclusive package made our event planning and management so much easier. Having managed several large events previously - I was impressed with the attention to detail and helpfulness of the staff throughout. We had all the menu choices one could want and our dinner and related service was excellent. We have had so many compliments from our guests I have lost count. I simply cannot recommend this venue more highly. More...

Greysolon is stunning! One of the major advantages that helped us choose a venue was that we knew there would be do additional decorating involved! They even had a centerpiece option with mercury glass pieces which was exactly what we were looking for. It's great that they take care of everything; ceremony, reception, decor, food, drinks, etc. There are a few drawbacks though: they only offer 2 food tastings a year & we weren't available the day that they had one before our wedding, so we're going in blind. Also, they no longer offer chair covers. They need to be rented through a second party, which is so incredibly expensive. The chairs are new & not necessarily bad, but considering the gorgeous surroundings, the chairs themselves don't quite fit the elegance of the space without the chair covers. Another minor issue is that since our wedding is on a Friday, we aren't able to do a rehearsal the night before and can't get into the space until 10:00am the day of the wedding, which throws a wrench into the ladies' prep time, our first looks, etc. All that aside, it was by far the best option for us to get married and have our reception in Duluth!

Our daughter (the bride) commented the next morning that she and her husband both felt that their wedding day had been "more wonderful than they'd ever imagined it to be." Dancing at her wedding in the Greysolon Ballroom had been a dream of hers growing up in Duluth. This couple LOVES to dance so the ballroom was the absolutely perfect venue for their wedding reception. The staff - Jax, Kalysta and their team took care of every single detail - sometimes before we even thought to ask the question! Kalysta kept in touch on a regular basis and really helped us make wise decisions along the way for everything from food and wine choices to timing of the grand march and meal service. And guests are still commenting about how fabulous the food was as. Hats off to the chef - the filet mignon & walleye duet plated meal was spectacular! More...

Ever since I was a little girl I have dreamed of having my wedding here. Now it finally came true, right away when I got engaged I went and booked it. Throughout the two year engagement we kept in contact about what I wanted and they helped me find all the vendors I needed. The week of the wedding Kaylista was very efficient on calling me back, and taking all the stress off of me. The venue is like a dream and I would recommend Greysolon and their amazing staff to anyone who is looking for a happily ever after wedding night! More...

Jax and Kallysta were wedding day "fairy Godmothers". The amount of work these ladies had put in for our wedding day was completely unbridled. Above and beyond what was ever imagined or expected. The staff on our wedding day were so patient, friendly, courteous and just pleasant. They addressed every simple request and made every detail stand out. Our food was amazing and every guest left with an incredible experience from the ballroom. I can not express or explain enough just how impressed and blown away my husband and I are. We managed to not only plan a wedding that was a fairy tale, but we built a relationship with these two ladies that has forever touched a part of our hearts... WAY TO GO LADIES!! More...

The Greysolon was a dream to work with. They'd take maybe a day or two to get back to emails, but otherwise, they were great.
The food was AMAZING. I dream about the manacotti still!
The staff is experienced and everything ran so smoothly. I was so relaxed on my wedding day and I owe a huge part of it to them.

From start to finish our experience with Greysolon Ballroom and staff was truly exceptional! They were able to answer all of our questions and provide advice during the wedding planning process. They were very reliable and quick to respond to all of our questions. The day of our wedding was absolutely perfect thanks to the wonderfully organized staff. Everything went smoothly from start to finish, they even knew how to get a hold of our DJ when he showed up late! My husband and I are so thankful that we were able to have our dream wedding in the Ballroom and would recommend this venue to everyone! More...

We just got married this past weekend at Greysolon Ballroom, and our wedding was nothing short of amazing. We worked with Kalysta throughout the planning process and she helped us to go through all the fine details and make sure that we had all the decisions and details in place for the big day. She was absolutely amazing to work with. In the weeks and days leading up to the wedding, I had countless people ask me if I was stressed out for the wedding. And, I had to say...with all of Kalysta's help, planning was a breeze, and we didn't even think of wedding details the last two weeks leading up to the big day. On the day of, the staff was fabulous. Many of our guests had never been to Duluth or Greysolon, and were very impressed with the venue, the great food, and the awesome staff. We can't tell you how many times we have heard our guests say that it was the best wedding they had ever been to. THANK YOU Greysolon staff, for making our day unbelievable. We couldn't have dreamed of a more perfect day. More...

My husband and I had our ceremony and reception in the main ballroom at the Greysolon April 2014. The whole experience was AMAZING!!!

We worked with Kalysta and Jax and their attention to detail and knowledge was fabulous. They went above and beyond in all aspects. We are from the Twin Cities, so planning a wedding from a distance was a little concerning at first, but they were a huge help the entire time!

We could not have dreamed of a more perfect wedding and Greysolon was a huge part of making that dream come true!

Overall we were pretty happy with the Greysolon Ballroom. Kaylsta was awesome to work with during the planning stages!! All of our guests raved about the food. Our only complaint is they were so quick to clean the tables - people had not finished eating their meals. They also took full bottles of champagne off of the table that people were still planning to drink. More...

Jax and Kallysta, along with the entire team at the Greysolon is absolutely outstanding. I cannot say enough about this team, or the beauty of this venue. My wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception were held here. We had our ceremony and reception in the Moorish Room, with our cocktail hour in the lobby. This place has such a beautiful, old-Hollywood, Great Gatsby type feel, which is exactly what I wanted. The service was unbelievable, white glove service with incredibly attentive and professional servers and bartenders. The food was delicious, so not "wedding food".

But the reason this venue gets such high marks are because of Jax and Kallysta. Jax will become an aunt to you while you plan your event, and truly you feel as though she is family. She is so warm, genuine, and caring. Kallysta is your big sister, calming your nerves and walking you through absolutely everything. I am quite a type A control freak, and I was comfortable to leave the details up to Kallysta and I knew it would be beautiful. Beautiful can't even begin to describe my experience.

My wedding day was the best day of my entire life, and I owe much of that to Jax, Kallysta, and the Greysolon staff and venue.

The Greysolon Team is by far the best of the best! I never would have thought my dream wedding would be affordable or even possible until I met Jax and Kalysta who took their time on the phone with me and sent me emails full of information. Not only was it affordable but the whole team treated me like one of their own. They took care of everything down to all the little details. If I had any worries they reassured me. They really went above and beyond for me and I couldn't be more grateful. Lexi was in charge of my wedding day and she did an excellent job! She made sure everything was on schedule! Jax, Kalysta, and Lexi took control for us so that we could enjoy the whole process and day of having a wedding. They made it a mission for me not to stress but to be able to celebrate with everyone without a single worry. They even pulled us aside once in awhile to give us some moments together. My wedding really couldn't have been in better hands. I felt even better than Cinderella because I had this whole team as my fairy godmother. I was truly blessed to have my wedding at Greysolon. They are an amazing family! Everything was white glove service and the food was soooooooo delicious! My husband and I wanted to accommodate to all our guests, we wanted to have a wedding to celebrate with them, not just us, but to thank all of them for being in our lives and to show them how much they mean to us. I had so many guests tell me how the food was the best they've ever had at a wedding. It's been almost 6 months since our wedding and we still have guests complimenting the food and telling us how much fun they had. I am so grateful and happy that we were able to give our guests a wonderful celebration. Thank you thank you so much to the Greysolon family, I would have never had the wedding of my dreams without you guys! I still get excited when I think about my wedding day, and Greysolon has left me with so many wonderful memories. More...

Greysolon Ballroom was an amazing venue to hold both our ceremony and reception. While there are two rooms at Greysolon, both our ceremony and reception took place in the upper ballroom. While it looks pricey at first glance, it isn't that much more expensive than other venues in the area (watch out for other places' hidden costs! Greysolon always spelt out every little cost detail and the differences aren't all that much!). For the price, Greysolon's service is second to none. Jax and Kalysta are wonderful planners and their experience is so vast that they know exactly what questions to ask to make your day wonderful and stress free. The staff was amazing; they set up for our ceremony and then "flipped" the ballroom for our dinner and reception. They turned the room over so fast and efficient I didn't even realize they had done it! We also had a social hour and appetizers which were wonderful! I actually had guests bribing the staff to bring them their own plate of appetizers! There was a small mix up with a keg of beer that we had ordered (the keg we requested was not ordered on time) and the manager offered to let us have a choice of kegs they had available and then gave our guests a champagne toast on the house for their mistake. Service here is second to none and guests were raving about how flawless everything was here. Can't recommend it enough. More...

Had our wedding here in September of 2013. It was more than I had dreamed! The staff was great! I always think wedding food made in large amounts is gross, however, it was AMAZING!!! We had so many comments on the food and the venue from everybody. The staff was so willing to accommodate and work with us.

This venue made our wedding dream come true!! I would recommend this place for anyone. It might not be as affordable as others in Duluth, but the money is more than well spent!

Hands down the BEST place to get married in Duluth! Can't say enough positive things about Jax, Kalysta and the team at Greysolon Ballroom. As an out-of-state bride, they handled all the important details for us and all we had to basically do was show up. They deserve an Emmy for their high level of customer service and their planning process. Never did I dream the reception process would have been so easy. They know their stuff from start to finish and make you feel like a million bucks the entire time! Pair them with Sarah from #NSE- Northland Special Events (flower & decor), Eileen from #HowSweetItIsCakes, Tom R. from #SoundsUnlimited, and #EscapeLimosuines and you got yourself a perfect Duluth wedding!!

We held our ceremony in the Lobby (and are one of the last weddings to be held there), and our reception in the Moorish Room. The place was fantastic. The old, classic building is a classy venue, and one of the most beautiful locations for a wedding that I've ever seen. The food was unbelievable. EVERY single guest commented on our menu selections, saying it didn't feel like catered wedding fare, but like high quality restaurant food. The caterer is on-site, nobody else was brought in. The staff made sure we were taken care of, from the early stages of planning over a year ago to Last Call on the night of our reception. The only issue we had was that getting a response on a question took a couple of days most times, however, we never felt like we were being pushed aside. Each wedding is handled as if it were the staff's own family, and they do everything within their power to make it amazing. Don't bother shopping around, just use Greysolon Plaza for your reception. The value is the best in Duluth, and the venue is by far the most amazing. More...

I can't even begin to explain how amazing the women at Greysolon are. Jax was a patient, calming, reassuring voice no matter when I called or what I called about. Then there's Kalysta, the woman who is in charge the day of your event. I arrived to the ballroom to find that everything was not only going exactly as I hoped, but She had set up our Candy Buffet for us since i had forgotten to inform her who would be doing it! I was blown away! She was there with a smile to answer all my questions that day, and had hot moist towel to wipe our hands off with after we cut the cake. The Ballroom itself is beautiful, grand and perfect for the classic romantic feel I was going for. I could go on and on but I say if you're looking for a venue in Duluth consider Greysolon! More...

I don't even know where to start. I never in my entrie life felt as special as I did and it was because of Greysolon. It all started with the 17 months I had to plan where I became very well acquainted with Jax and Kalysta. They are the most amazing event planners. Jax knows exactly what to say and when. She can multi-task like no other. She deserves a medal for dealing with me! I am pretty sure I am the only bride who has come in as many times as I did. Everytime I came in I was greeted with huge smiles and hugs. They never made me feel like I was a burden to them. Jax made me feel comfortable with every step of my big day. As for Kalysta, she is an amazing women. She was there the day of the wedding and she made sure everything was executed PERFECTLY. She speaks with such a calming voice so when she needed to go over a couple things with me hours before I walked down the aisle she made everything seem so easy and calm. She had another wedding she was over seeing in the room below ours and I never ever felt neglected. When we were announced into the ballroom we immediatley left to walk around to cut the cake and I will never forget the feeling when we walked out into the hallway. Kalysta had all her staff lining the hallway and it made us feel like royalty. It was so magical. All the staff were so friendly and great. They met the bridal party in the Fireside room with trays of appetizers(which were AWESOME). Every detail was executed to the way I wanted it. I had asked Kalysta the day before the wedding if she could put a few paper napkins only at my seat for the dinner. I thought she would think I was crazy, but I really hate cloth napkins. She didn't even laugh she just said "Of course!" So when I sat down at the reception for dinner there were 3 paper napkins, just for me! It was great! I honestly cannot stress enough how much we appreciate the staff at Greysolon. The food was also so amazing. Everyone was raving about it. It was perfectly done and tasted fantastic! They made my day amazing and I wouldn't change a single thing about any of it! They work their butts off at Greysolon for every single couple that comes in there. If I had one vendor to recommend over and over again, it would be Greysolon. They were the absolute icing on the cake. If you are looking for elegance, detail, and wonderful service-THIS IS YOUR PLACE!!! More...

Greysolon Ballroom was an OUTSTANDING venue to have for our wedding. I can't find enough good words to say about it. Jax the manager is OUTSTANDING to work with. This venue was literally like a dream come true place to hold my reception. It was great that they took care of other things too like catering and decorations. It's a full-service wedding venue. They are EXTREMELY responsive and flexible, AWLAYS making sure you are happy throughout the whole planning process. For the price, this is also one of the best vlaues you will find in Minnesota for a venue. GREAT pricing. I had so many genuine compliments form guest after our wedding I can't even count. Food was GREAT.Our guests had a WONDERFUL time!!!!!!!!

The only downside was during the reception some of the servers didn't have their black and white attire tucked in. Uniforms looked kind of sloppy. But that was the ONLY negative to our experience.

The old Hotel Duluth...AMAZING!! John was great to work with, and they made everything so easy for us. There was another wedding the night before, so we were unable to set-up until the morning of the wedding. John let us bring everything in the night before so it would be ready when we came to set up on Saturday. The food was great and the service was prompt. Starting in November Blackwoods will be taking over the catering at the Greysolon, and although they have great food, I am hoping that they don't hike the prices too much. We got a great deal to have our wedding at one of the most beautiful venues in town. More...

Absolutely stunning space for anyone who wants a unique, elegant, and historical atmosphere. Great dance floor and lots of room for guests. Great bar/lounge space a little separated from the action for some quiet if you want it.

The food was outstanding, and very competitively priced. Everything prepared from fresh, not frozen or canned, even the green beans almondine. Ample quantities, no one left hungry! The chicken and beef were cooked to perfection, hot and juicy. We brought our own dessert as they do not do cakes.

My experience with Greysolon's management was overall very positive. The booking was very simple, and had a reasonable cancellation policy, just in case. The people there do a wedding or similar events every weekend of the year, so they have it down to a science. It can be confusing for the customers, though, because we don't know all of their routines and policies. But they answered all my questions and we got it all figured out!
