Woman and man socializing in rotunda area

I would highly recommend Chestnut Hill College as a place to have any special event. The food was wonderful and the staff who worked that night were extremely friendly and accommodating to all our requests. 

- O’Neal Birthday Party

Friendly, attentive staff and thoughtfully prepared cuisine served in a one-of-a-kind venue add up to a memorable celebration of your life’s special moments. You provide the guests. We’ll provide the smiles.
