I am a wedding planner, and as someone who works with tons of venues throughout Chicagoland, you will NEVER come across someone as amazing as Tracy at MCC. My best friend got married there and wanted a beautiful garland piece down the head table. Expensive, we settled on fake eucalyptus. Tracy took it into her own hands to CREATE the garland on her own time just to make the bride the happiest girl in the world – and she so did! This is just one of the millions of things Tracy did over the top for my best friend, and I’m forever grateful she was there to run the show for the biggest day of her life. Thank you staff at MCC and THANK YOU TRACY!  ~Emily D

Could not have asked for more! The staff were amazing! From our first meeting to the end of the reception, they catered to our every needs. The food and service were first class! Our guests are still calling us and talking about what an amazing event it was. I don’t know what else to say, but if I did it would be nothing but good! ~Jeff

This vendor is awesome, the facility is beautiful, The event planner, is excellent, the food was superb. If you are planning any type of event you should definitely consider them. You will not be disappointed, especially in the food, our guests raved about it. We even had a chef as one of our guests, and he thought the food was excellent ~M. Wahl

The staff at McHenry Country Club were so flexible with our Unique theme and also respectful of our budget. We had both our ceremony and our reception at the Country Club that could’t be done at any other place (being on the water). Not only were we extremely pleased as a newly married couple, our guests have been ranting and raving about the venue and the food since our awesome day last week. As the Wedding Event Manager, Lauren E made us feel at home and did a ton of behind-the-scenes services that were above and beyond our expectations. We could’t have asked for a better venue, Serving Staff, and Event Manager-Lauren!! Awesome Job McHenry Country Club! ~Suzanne

Our wedding was at McHenry Country Club. The facility was kept up beautifully. They have a brand new pergola outside that they just painted white that we had our ceremony at. The Fox River passes behind and makes for a beautiful background. The food was delicious and the staff was friendly and helpful—overall the service was great! Everyone was extremely helpful with anything we needed. I loved the reception room because 3 of the 4 walls were windows so it was nice and bright. The patio right outside was also wonderful for guests to use as well. It was the best night of my life! Thank you McHenry Country Club! ~Tessie G.

I am sorry that I have not reviewed sooner. I had my daughter’s baby shower at the country club and could not have been more pleased. The staff was marvelous! Everything went very smoothly without a hitch. The food was excellent, as well as the service. I would certainly come back to the McHenry Country Club for my next event. Thank you once again. ~Patrice

I want to thank the entire staff for making my wedding day a success! Everyone had a wonderful time. The food was exceptional– I received so many compliments. Thank you again! ~Laura B.

Friendly, Flexible and helpful staff. Beautiful Country Club for outdoor pictures. Delicious food. ~Melissa

Amazing memorial lunch buffet! The room, the bar, the food and the staff were amazing. We estimated 40 people and 57 showed up! Tracy the banquet manager was amazing. She let us sit in the bar which was so comfortable and intimate for small parties and in the room for larger groups. They handled the food so well even though it was 50% more needed. Not one person went without and everyone mentioned how wonderful the food was. Tracy even made a plate for my Mom who needed some help. The server was amazing and made sure everyone had what they needed and the bartender kept up with all the drinks as well. It could not have been any better and I will do all my events at the country club. They exceeded my expectations by over the 50% we threw at them!!! Can’t recommend them more, I would give them 10 stars if I could. ~Char H

I was very impressed with the quality and quickness MCC gave to us throughout the whole wedding process! Everything was beautifully set up and it took away from me having that added stress of getting everything done in time. The staff was absolutely wonderful to work with and helped us along if we had questions and/or concerns and was there for us every step of the way! I can’t say enough about the food, also!!! We were complimented all night by our guests on the choices we chose! I would do it all over again at the MCC in a heartbeat! ~Lori B.

The staff was extremely attentive and the food was amazing. You can’t beat the view from the dining room and the wedding pictures on the course are beautiful. ~Kristin Joy

The McHenry Country Club was a perfect place to have our corporate holiday party. It was beautifully decorated, with a wonderful wait staff, delicious meals and they made it very easy to plan. Thank you! ~Kim


The country club did a great job. They made sure that everything went smoothly with the florist, bakery, DJ and photographer. They adjusted the plates for our younger guests. It was a great party. ~Mora

Dear McHenry Country Club Staff: Thank you all for the support you gave the Ladies’ Association and Breast Cancer Rally Committee this past week. All of the management, office staff, wait staff, bartenders and, of course, Chef Angelo, helped to make our event fantastically successful!! We could’t have done it without you!!! ~The Breast Cancer Committee & Ladies’ Association

I could not have asked for a better venue! They were very accommodating and willing to work with you every step of the way! The wedding coordinator was wonderful! I emailed her hundreds of times and she was always willing to answer my questions, no matter how little the detail. The landscape provided a wonderful backdrop for pictures! I would recommend this venue to anyone!!! They were amazing! We had absolutely no problems the day of the wedding ~Nicole

On behalf of Shaw Media I would like to thank you for being a luncheon sponsor of the first annual Women of Distinction Program. Thank you for going above and beyond to meet our needs for the event. Your staff was proactive and aimed to please. ~Kelly N.

Everyone was impressed with the efficient service and delicious lunches. ~Lin

I don’t think we properly thanked you for the wonderful job you did for us at Jessie’s Wedding. We really appreciate all of your efforts. I know there were lots of things you handled behind the scenes as well as the visible decorating, keeping everything flowing. Thanks! ~Laura & Steve

I wish there were 10 stars – my son’s wedding in September was beyond perfect! It is cliché to say that the staff went above and beyond, but THEY DID! Tracy and her staff ensured that the bridal party and families wanted for nothing that night. It was the little things that they oversaw without the slightest hesitation and mostly without us even knowing! From last minute dietary restriction adjustments, to a very well done extract of the bride and groom during dinner to get pictures with the elusive sunset, to ensuring that the wedding décor was tightly grounded in the blasting wind – Tracy made sure that everything was perfect. I can honestly say that this is what you can expect. Friends had their wedding here a month later, and even as guests – we were treated like it was our wedding all over again. The same attention and perfection were given to our friends (and us!) a month later. We look forward to having future events at McHenry Country Club! Thank you Tracy and team. It was a night we will never forget! ~Vickie R

To our great wait staff and bartenders: Everyone from players to guests at our recent MWI event sends big, big THANK YOU’S for your prompt service and helpful ways! Thank you so much! ~The MWI Committee

Thank you one and all for all the help you gave at our past event. You are all fantastic! You accommodated our every need and request promptly and efficiently! From beginning to end you helped to make this event, once again, a huge success!! We cannot thank you enough. ~Char

I wanted to thank the MCC staff for helping me celebrate Steve’s birthday with a surprise party. Everything worked out wonderfully.  He was completely surprised.  The breakfast buffet was a big hit.  I appreciated having two omelet makers.. the whole spread was beautiful and delicious.  The servers were wonderful– very professional and friendly! Thank you to all! ~Lynda R.

Just wanted to tell you that everything was wonderful for my daughter’s shower. Everyone raved about the food & the room. Thank you and the staff for making it a great day for us! ~Barb

Thank-you for your great planning and organizing of my Father’s funeral luncheon last Saturday. I cannot say enough about it. You did a fantastic job. Many family members and friends came to me with great compliments on the food, the atmosphere, the service, everything was just fantastic. Thank you for making this difficult day a joyful memory with friends and family. ~Carol B.

I had my wedding at McHenry Country Club on September 1st. Everything turned out perfect! I had my ceremony outside on the newly painted gazebo with the Fox River as the background. It is such a beautiful and romantic setting. Even though it had rained all day, the weather cleared up for us to still have it outside. If not, there is an indoor area to hold the ceremony which has large picture windows so you still get the feeling of being on the water. The reception area is large and spacious and three of the four walls are windows. This allows for the gorgeous view to be seen throughout the night. The banquet coordinator was very helpful in my planning process. Since I live over 200 miles away, she made the long distance planning easier. She was very well organized and was willing to accommodate all of my requests. The chef had no problems with the different kids meals and vegan meals needed. And the food was fantastic! We had ordered the filet and you could cut it with a fork! The wait staff was efficient and professional. The dinner service went quickly without any waiting for the next course. We offered wine service throughout dinner and everyone’s glass was kept full. I am so glad that I decided to have my wedding and reception there. Everything turned out wonderfully and I could’t be happier! ~Amy G.
