Testimonials

Thank you very much for your service last night.  The food was excellent as always, and the overall experience was great.  All of our guests enjoyed themselves and were very complimentary of the staff, venue, food, and service.  Abi deserves special thanks for her hard work and preparation.  We had a subpar experience with the same event last year, so Abi did everything she could to go above and beyond to make sure that last night’s event was perfect.  She is a great asset to your restaurant and a terrific party planner.  So on behalf of SRHW thank you very much for your service.  We will be recommending your venue to other firms for similar events, and plan to continue to have events in the Crows Nest.

Mer’s wedding reception was so much fun and I could actually enjoy because y’all did such a flawless job.  The food was delicious, the service was impeccable, and everyone had a great time.  Mer’s daddy and I weren’t having to worry over the service, so we could just enjoy our guests.  Please let me know how I can brag on you more.  If there are families who are iffy or nervous, have them call me and I’ll calm them down.  Thank you a million times over.

Thank you for making it possible for me to entertain my -out of town- guests in such a grand manner. My gratitude is beyond measure. Each group we treated to dinner enjoyed the marvelous view the seating arrangement provided. The dining experience and the evening surpassed everyone’s expectations.

Thank you for making everything absolutely perfect for us.

Everything went extremely well. Thanks to you, Grover, and your staff. I had to ask Grover to add some rather large items to our menu at the last minute because our grandmother of the bride “had a bad feeling” we would not have enough. The food was delicious, plentiful, and every person at Cypress Inn was a pleasure to work with, including each delivery person!

Thank You again for making this event an even more special event.

-Jeaniese Boswell, Auxiliary Services

Words fail me when I try to express how welcomed and gracious you made our family feel at our Mother’s 80th birthday dinner. Courteous, helpful, service with a smile and professionalism can only describe a few of your attributes. Thank you all for taking good care of us.

I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed Cypress catering the party last night. I told David afterwards that it was the easiest setup and cleanup for a party that I have ever had. Hathan and Paden did a great job and were so conscientious. They were quietly in the background but handled everything, very professional. Thanks also to you for coming out and assembling the FGBLT’s. The pear crostinis, beef tenderloins and fried green tomato BLTs were a huge hit. I think guests expected smoked chicken from Cypress but were very surprised by the other dishes.

Next time we have a need for catering, you will be the first person I call. ( and i’ll even give you a little more notice!!!) Thanks again.

I hosted my son’s wedding reception on Nov. 4 at The Cypress Inn. Every time that I called my questions were answered and any concerns were dealt with immediately. Your staff was well prepared to help me with menu questions and suggestions when I was uncertain. They were great.

I was graciously allowed to come in at 3:30 to decorate for our event at 5:00. Your staff was so helpful. They removed a table that we didn’t need and helped us with any questions or concerns we had.

The service was prompt and gracious. The food excellent. When our event ran a little late, I was concerned. Our server (I think it was Jake) was very kind and did not rush us out. After the bride and groom left, I returned to the Crowsnest and your staff was so kind to help us pack the chair covers and sashes, as well as other decorations.

I realize the LSU football game weekend is a time that you are very busy and football season can make your financial year, but we never felt rushed. Thank you. All the guest raved about the food. We couldn’t decide which entrée was best. The chicken was wonderful as usual, but the steak got rave reviews. I had the shrimp and they were some of the best I’ve had.

Again, you certainly exceeded my expectations. I will be back and will continue to recommend you to others.
