    The Reids

  • People told me "Your food was the best food I've ever had at a wedding reception." The location is also beautiful. It has both an indoor and outdoor option, which is great because weather is never predictable. It is in the woods and a little bit away from town so it really gives it a nice, secluded feeling. All of the people who helped put on my reception were very professional and well dressed. They thought of every need before I did. I highly recommend Thornager's on Kiltie Lane.


  • Hands down the only caterer in town I would EVER use. Karen and her staff go above and beyond catering. They were there for every step of the wedding process, offering suggestions and ideas. Not only did they make suggestions though but they helped me to achieve those suggestions. There is not a single thing that I would change about my wedding day and I have them to thank for that. From linens to name tents, to schedules and parking help they provided it all


  • Perfect venue, perfect day: We loved Thornager's on Kiltie Lane. It's a great venue that was ideal for us as a couple in a part of the state that had meaning to us. Karen was great at showing us around and always being an email away for planning. The staff were fantastic and really attentive towards us and our guests on the day and the food was amazing. We would highly recommend this venue to anyone! Thank you to everyone at Thornager's for ensuring our day was so memorable!
