This letter is to compliment your staff at Ilio DiPaolo's. First and foremost, I want to recognize Heather for being the absolute BEST organizer I have ever experienced. My husband, (finance at the time) told me about the Woodlawn Beach Lodge and who would cater it. I was a little skeptical at first, but agreed blindly to have our wedding at this location. You see I was living in Texas at the time.

On the day before my wedding, upon the arrival at the lodge, again, fear took over because everything was bare. Once the tables were moved and dressed, it was so elegant. My time was pressed, since I had to decorate my own cake and arrived just in time for the wedding, so I had no time to offer my suggestions or directions. To my amazement, the place was like a Cinderella story. The food was exquisite and the service was phenomenal. Oh my goodness, the portions... were incredible.

You guys really made my fairy tale dream come true. Thank you so much... my hats off to the owner, management, the chef and service techs. They made everyone feel so comfortable and I am recommending your facility to everyone who is asking. Thanks again for the everlasting memories I will always treasure.

On behalf of Vanessa, Devon and myself...we would just like to thank you so much for making our shower such a great event for our family. The food was good, facility was clean and beautiful, and your staff...especially Heather, were all outstanding! Woodlawn Beach holds a special place because it is where Bill and Devon met and lifeguarded together...and fell in love! So...there is that as well. Thank you again, we will be in touch for future events for sure.

We had a great luncheon this afternoon. I ate a great chicken parmesan and others had huge portions of lasagna with their delicious sauce. Service was excellent and the owner stopped by every table to make sure everything was just right.

We had my nieces baby shower there. It was outstanding service and food. They offered help at all times. If we asked for something it was right away we received it. Food was so good. Breaded pork chops were fabulous. We would definitely recommend this facility for showers or large parties.

Enjoyed our company get together in the banquet room. We had family style food and it was hot and very good. The staff was very friendly and efficient. I'd highly recommend using their banquet room for large 80-100 parties.
