I just wanted to say Thank You for everything. The food was wonderful. I have been ordering for this Holiday Lunch for 15 years, and this is the first year that everyone raved about the food. I am sure I will be contacting you again.
We know this is delayed, but we just finished up our wedding thank you notes and got our photos back from the big day, so we wanted to extend our sincerest thanks to your team.
Simply put, you took our grandest vision and made it come to life. From the very beginning, you were communicative, organized, professional and fun, which is a killer combination. The set up and decorations were exactly how we wanted them, and for an event planner, that is all you can ask for. I appreciate you coming to our rescue when the structure on the rooftop didn’t work out and for not kicking us out when our groomsman busted his chin open while doing the worm :) You were there guiding us every step of the way, and that is exactly what we needed. It gave us peace of mind, which on your wedding day is extremely important.
You were extremely patient with my questions and serous type A personality, which I’m sure is no easy feat. We are so grateful our family and friends didn’t have to worry about set up or tear down. That was huge for us. The venue itself is perfect – exactly the backdrop we wanted – and we are so glad we chose it for so many reasons, your hospitable and professional staff being one of them.
And the food… Oh my goodness, the food. It. Was. Incredible. Besides our ceremony and vows, the food was what we have gotten the most compliments on. I wish I wasn’t so anxious so that I could have eaten more of it!
Thank you again for everything. We truly had the most magical day, and we will never forget your part of it. In a way, we are sad it’s over! We hope to work with you again in the future in some capacity or another. Best of luck.

I just wanted to thank you and everyone that was involved in Abby and Eric’s wedding reception. We have had so many compliments on your venue, the food, the staff, and I now pass them on to you. The day was special in so many ways and I am truly grateful for your care and concern, it made the day go so smoothly. Please let Erica know that we can never repay her for all that was done and the memories will last forever. Thanks again!
I just wanted to send a note telling you how much I appreciate everything you did for the wedding. The Icehouse and Crushed Ice Events Catering went above and beyond to make our wedding a success. I would highly recommend (and will!) the Icehouse and Crushed Ice to everyone!
From the first day we met, you made sure all questions were thoroughly answered. The help you provided from the beginning whether it be with ceremony, reception, or food was amazing. It was a relief knowing I didn’t have to worry about anything on our wedding day because I knew that you would take care of it. Everything went off without a hitch! Natalie was amazing with keeping my, at times, unruly family in line and on time. The execution of my centerpiece idea was wonderful and the fact that you took care of that, took much pressure off me and was a great plus.
I know that every one of my guests said how much they LOVED the food, “best wedding food they had ever had” I heard from many, many people! The services and commitment to make our wedding the best and exactly what we wanted was excellent. Its the little things that count and add up when it comes to a big event such as a wedding and I honestly could not have asked for more or gotten better treatment than we received from the Icehouse and Crushed Ice Events staff. I firmly believe our wedding was perfect because we had it at the Icehouse!

I would like to thank each of the staff members from Crushed Ice Events. I hosted a holiday party at Whitehall House and Gardens for the physicians at Norton Suburban Hospital on December 6. What a day it was! Ice, sleet and snow could not stop the determination of this staff. Traffic was horrendous and roads were being closed as the snow and ice fell, but to my surprise, you guys came through for us when others were canceling.
My compliments to Chef Lawrence Agnew. The food was, as always, at the highest quality and delicious. My doctors were all raving about it. The staff was professional and courteous and interacted with the doctors very well. My appreciation for Lindsay, who was determined to meet my entire daunting requests.
This is what it takes to make a successful company. Employees who want to please their customers and go out of their way to do so; even when it means using your customer’s recipes. Believe me, it does not go unnoticed.

DANG!!! What a Party (Oaks and Smokes). My wife and I attended last year and waited all year to return. The Servers and Bartenders were friendly and great. I met who I think may have been the Manger and she is a real asset to your business, guaranteed. She was a pleasure to talk to and was Very knowledgeable. In fact, everyone working went out of their way to make everyone’s night a pleasure. I have forwarded you information to our company planners. I’m sure they would appreciate this level of event production.
What a wonderful party we had, thanks in large part to you and your incredible staff. The food was delicious and the wait staff did a terrific job throughout the evening. John the bartender was very personable and extemely capable (probably a little too capable with the Coronas in my case!) and the catering crew you sent to do the set up and cooking were just marvelous. All of your staff could not have represented your company any better and their professionalism and talents are a credit to the Crushed Ice Events staff.
Bob and I couldn’t have been more pleased (and I’m sure I speak for Jenny and Mark as well). Crushed Ice Events made the entire evening run so smoothly we felt like guests instead of hosts! Thank you again for all of your efforts!
Jill & Bob Prugar
Thanks so much, the event was wonderful, the food was great, and the bartenders were fabulous! I am pretty sure we will be setting up our party with you all next year as well! Thanks again for your help!!

I just wanted to follow up and tell you what a pleasure it was to work with you on Liz and Jeremy’s wedding reception. You did an amazing job! The staff was professional and neat – something that is very important and I appreciate. Chef did an amazing job and presentation was second to none. Thank you again for hosting this couple – I look forward to working together again.

Almost without exception the guests have taken the time to tell us what a wonderful reception Ashley and Pascal had. I am so impressed with you Lindsay! The tables were spaced well, looked wonderful, the food was great, (and the decor of the buffet was also noted by several friends who commented) – quite a few people said it was the best wedding reception they had ever been to, others said the best food they had ever had at any wedding or event. I would love to have the recipe for the chef’s bourbon glaze which was so tasty! The staff was without exception excellent, responsive, efficient, and you not only lived up to my expectations but exceeded them. I am so appreciative of all you all did, The Ice House is just an awesome venue, it was comfortable, and beautiful. Eran and Nick were also just wonderful, Rich and bar staff, along with some others were just terrific! Thank you for your hospitality, and your handling.
Wow! I can’t believe August 11, 2012 has come and gone – Seems as though we looked forward to that day for so long and now the newly weds are off on their honeymoon beginning a lifetime of adventures! I really don’t have the words to say to you all to thank you enough for all you did to help make the day so special. I knew the first time I visited the Ice House and Crushed Ice Events that Rachel & Dan would love it and judging from the comments we heard from our guests – we choose the perfect place to celebrate! Thanks for helping us with decisions leading up to the big day, for all you did to set the space perfectly, and for exceptional service on that Saturday! The service staff, the bar staff and you Lindsay, couldn’t have been more wonderful, fabulous, helpful and just perfect! We’ll sure spread the word – The Ice House and Crushed Ice Events rock!
Hi Ladies! I just want to say thank you SO much for everything. The wedding was perfect and everything was wonderful! Our guests were very impressed with the venue and have been raving about it. It was great working with both of you and I wish you both the best!
I just wanted to thank you all for everything with my wedding on August 4th. I appreciated it all so much and it was the most gorgeous wedding I have ever seen. Everyone is still talking about how beautiful it all was, how smoothly everything went, and how amazing the food was! You all truly made the day perfect for me and I am so grateful.
I recently attended a wedding at the Ice House in Louisville. I just wanted to tell you how delicious the food was. It was the best wedding reception buffet food I can ever remember having. The food was hot, and very tasty. Everyone at our table loved the food that evening and I would be honored if you would share the recipe for the Hot brown with me.
The Main Street Association held its annual Main Course Progressive Dinner fundraiser, “An HIPstoric Hop on Main” on October 14th, 2012. The dinner portion of the event was held at The Ice House. Crushed Ice did an amazing job getting the 250 delicious entrees out on time and at the right temperature. The wait staff was also very attentive to our guests’ needs and always made sure that each table’s wine bottles were replenished immediately. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Lindsay and her event staff and found them to be courteous, creative and fun!

I want to thank you and your team at Crushed Ice Events for the amazing support we received at this year’s Kentucky Derby Media Party. Your staff was well prepared and very flexible in accommodating our needs. We had more positive feedback from our guests about the buffet at this year’s event than any other I can remember. I would absolutely recommend Crushed Ice Events to any individual or organization, and hope to work with you again on next year’s event.
I just want to take this opportunity to thank you and everyone at Crushed Ice Events for the wonderful job you do for us at Delta Dental. Since our association began over two years ago, you have never let us down. The food is always superb, the service is professional, and the staff so easy to work with. I can always count on you to “read my mind” and anticipate what is needed, which relieves so much stress on the days of our events. I cannot begin to tell you how invaluable that is to all of us. In addition to those events that we plan well in advance, Crushed Ice Events has always been quick and ready to assist us in last minute boxed lunches to help us out in a pinch. There’s never any hesitation as to how or if you’ll get the job done, you simply do it. Although I know what you do is not without a great deal of effort, you always make everything seem natural and seamless. It will always be my pleasure to recommend Crushed Ice Events for everything from casual to the most elegant events.

I have to tell you that we were again, amazed at the talent of your staff and Chef. What a wonderful event you gave us. The presentation of that buffet was gorgeous. And, I can’t say enough about your Chef. The food was outstanding. Needless to say we have a wonderful time and the doctors are still talking about it. They of course give me the credit, but I know where the real talent lies. Put us on your radar for next year.
I just wanted to thank you all for everything! Our wedding was perfect and we had so much fun! You all are so nice and helpful and it was so great to not have to worry about anything and just enjoy the day. :) Our guests really enjoyed the food and loved the space too!
I can not say enough about how fantastic it was to work with Crushed Ice. Leading up to our wedding day, Lindsay and the team helped us to craft the perfect menu that met all of our dietary restrictions and fit in with our budget. They executed all of our wishes for display and set up the event above and beyond what I could have ever imagined. When I walked into my wedding I teared up and how they really made our wedding come to life. So many of our guests told us about how much they loved the food after the fact.
Thanks, and thank you so much for the great party. I truly got to enjoy it without having to run around like a crazy person trying to prepare food at home for people to enjoy. Everyone had a lovely time and commented on how nice everything was.
Just wanted to say thank you to all of you for Saturday. It was so much fun, I wish I could have the wedding every weekend. Thank you for making the ceremony space work and for all your coordination with the vendors. Nathan and my entire family were raving about the food.
You did a wonderful job planning, preparing, setting up, serving, and hosting the events Southern Seminary held at the Ice House last Wednesday and Thursday. I had many people, especially those in high position, express their satisfaction with the venue. Thank you so much for being great hostesses, and please express our gratitude to your kitchen and serving staff. They did a phenomenal job as well! Not to mention, the food was incredible.

I wanted to say thanks for a great event!

I wanted to send a quick note to say how much I enjoyed working with you and your staff on the event for the ACLU. The Venue was wonderful, but your staff made ALL the difference. Everything ran seamlessly – you really made my job so easy – and I can’t thank you enough.
You guys were top-notch – WONDERFUL! :) Thanks!
Words cannot express how thankful Jeff, my family and I are for the two of you and the incredible work and care you put into our wedding. We truly could not have been more pleased with our experience with the Ice House, and could not have had more of a blast at the reception! Thank you for being so helpful and reassuring. I can’t tell you how thankful my Mom was for her two “Therapists”.
Kate, Jeff and the Dobbins Family
Kathryn and Kris wanted a PARTY, and that’s exactly what they got!!!!! Everyone had a blast! Y’all really know how to put on a show! People couldn’t stop talking about the food and the venue. The out of town guest thought it was the coolest place they had ever seen. Needless to say we couldn’t have been more pleased! Thanks to you, Natalie and the entire staff for the OUTSTANDING job you did !!!
I had such a good time that I forget the cake stands, the guest book, and any matches that were left. Just let me know when I can pick them up :)
Thanks again for everything.
