  • We had our wedding (ceremony/reception) at Phil’s Event Center in October 2019. If you’re a budget-conscious wedding couple looking for an intimate, rustic cabin laid back feel for a wedding, as well as delicious Phil’s BBQ, you’ve found it at Phil’s Event Center. The Event Center is behind the main restaurant, and was the perfect space for both our ceremony and our reception, since we also had access to the boardroom (for food and photobooth) and the patio (for the bar). Joe the Catering Manager and the Phil’s BBQ Event Center staff were so accommodating and took care of us and our 88 guests, and Lauren was such a thoughtful and proactive event coordinator. Our guests had a fantastic time, and loved the food (chicken, pork ribs, coleslaw, beans, cornbread) and the space. It had everything we needed, including space for a DJ and dancing area, and we are so happy we chose Phil’s Event Center and Phil’s BBQ to kick off our marriage right.
