We have had numerous events over the years, and here are a few testimonials from satisfied customers…

Dear Balz,

My family and I would like to let you know that we were VERY impressed with not only your re-designed facility but your staff as well; when we recently attended a wedding reception of one of our friends, last month. Your staff was always making sure that everyone was getting taken care of and enjoying themselves.

I am an Event Planner here in Grand Island and I look foward to working with your staff in the near future.
Best of luck to you!!

We can not thank you enough for the wonderful services that you provided us. The reception was absolutely beautiful and it did go very smooth. We would like to let you know how much Kelli was a help to us, always making sure we were ok with everything, making our guests feel welcome. She was such a big help and you’re lucky to have such an employee that goes out of their way to make someone elses day sooooo special. Thanks again for everything and will reccommend you guys to anyone.

I just wanted to say “Thank You” for everything this weekend. You guys did such a nice job with everything. I had such a great time, and the whole weekend ran so smoothly because of your professional staff and great accomodations. I would highly recommend you to anyone! I couldn’t have asked for a better place to have my wedding reception. Everything looked beautiful, my guests were very well taken care of, and Kevin and I loved every minute of it. Thank you again for helping to make our wedding day so special. I truly appreciate all that you did for me.

We scheduled our daughter’s wedding reception at Balz’s Reception Hall and have nothing but high praise for Misty Williams and her staff. With a guest list of over 325, we couldn’t be more pleased with the ease and efficiency with which our guests were served and treated. From the inception of booking our reception, Misty was always available and extremely helpful in making our daughter’s day very special. She was very thorough, detail oriented, patient,and had wonderful ideas for us.
We would not hesitate to recommend Balz’s Reception Hall to anyone.

Thanks again,
John and Deb McDermott


We would just like to thank everyone for making our special day go so smoothly and how willing Misti was to meet us whenever we needed to go over arrangements. We were very pleased with the catering, the food was excellent! We will definetly recommend Balz to anyone looking for a reception hall.

We were extremely happy with our wedding reception experience at Balz!!! We had to plan an out of state wedding from Kansas so we were not quite sure what to expect in our search for a banquet hall for 200 people. We went to Balz reception Hall and were never disappointed. The event coordinator, Misti, was very responsive to our requests. Specifically, she gave a tour of the hall to our family when we were not able to be in town. We were able to attend a food tasting reception to help us choose the right menu for our guests, and we received some good advice to help make our day perfect! The owners, Whitey and Jeff, were very professional to work with and were flexible regarding our needs. The hall looked awesome on our wedding day!!! Our family was relieved that the Balz reception staff took care of the clean up after our party. Thank you to everyone at Balz! We have some great memories that we will cherish forever!

We recently used the Balz Reception hall facility to host our daughter’s wedding reception and can’t say enough good things about Jeff and his staff. They were very helpful and the reception was really quite beautiful. Jeff was easily accessible for meetings, etc. and I always received informative and timely return messages from Jeff throughout the entire planning proess.

Jeff Richardson is a top notch businessman who is willing to go that extra mile for you and for whatever plans you may have with his reception facility, be it a wedding or a 50th anniversary party. He and his staff were very accommodating and literally opened their doors to us.

I would recommend Jeff and the Balz Reception Hall to anyone needing a reception/party type facility.

Thank you so much for putting on our wedding reception. Everything was so beautiful, the service was great and everybody was so easy to work with. We had no doubts that everything wouldn’t turn out. We are so glad we booked our reception with you and will recommend it to everyone we know. Thanks again for going above and beyond the call of duty. We couldn’t have asked for anything more!
