The Building is beautiful and was exactly the setting we were hoping to find. The Staff was great, they all were friendly, helpful and professional. I would absolutely have this event there again, and if I personally ever needed a catering hall, I would make NHLC my first choice!”

Several times, Jose and Andy dropped everything and did what we asked, with absolute professionalism and courtesy. The other staff was great, as usual. Everyone is lovely. I love the improvements, especially the ladies rooms. Very nice job. Thanks again, we certainly will be back.”
