D'Ignazio's Towne House - Review?

Hi Ladies,
I have a meeting set up to go to the Towne House and I wanted to see if anyone has had their wedding there or has been to one there. The pricing and whats included seems too good to be true, so I'm hoping to get more opinions!!
Thanks

    I was at a 50th anniversary party there with over 100 people so it was very much like a wedding. Plus, I grew up in Media and have been to dinner there countless times along with smaller functions (birthdays, class reunions, etc).

    It is old and out dated decor wise (incl. linens, china, cutlery and the way the staff dresses). I know the price is great but you do get what you pay for. The food is ok but is also outdated. Bland mushy steamed veggies, poorly presented salads, overly dressed garlic bread. Twice baked potatoes that seem to just be reheated from frozen.

    Have you checked out Lia's catering? It think pricing might be similar but the rooms are very new and her food is good. http://www.liascatering.com/

    Thanks ladies! I know it looks pretty out dated, but it seems like with my price range that's going to be what I'm going to get :(

    Massos RED PINE INN is cheap as heck, and nice.
    their other bulding is gross.
    but red pine inn is a cabin like venue and they are super nice
    and super cheap!

    it's in glassboro, NJ!
    it was the cheapest we found, but we didnt want to go that far...
