Sharon, Joel and I would like to thank you for making our wedding day a memorable event. More than a year later, everyone still talks about how delicious the food was. We loved how you took charge, and made our special day perfect. We especially loved the way we were treated. Like family. Everyone loved the boat ride. The service was spectacular. Joel and I felt we received more than expected. We definitely recommend this venue for all occasions. Love you guys!

Again I would like to thank you for our exciting, relaxing cruise along the Erie Canal today. Our sandwiches were excellent and hit the spot. I got to meet your husband, but sadly missed you!!! Hopefully there will be a next time for Brighton Square to get together and enjoy some sunshine instead of looking at these four walls day after day.
Again, Thank you so much and hopefully I will get to meet you in the near future.

Thank you so much for hosting us, making concessions and treating us so very well. Our guests loved it.
Actually, based on your narrative (as told by Neil) our group became very interested in the Tiffany Windows at the Church and we scheduled a visit for this morning. I let them know it was your team that recommended them.
The food was great and the buzz afterwards was how beautiful the cruise and dinner was.
Canít thank you enough for making it work.

I put together a gallery for you of some photos of the venue that you may
like. Feel free to use them if you want.

I performed a wedding at your facility on Saturday night and I just wanted to let you know that I can't remember a place that had everything so under control! From the time I arrived until the time I left it was obvious that you know what you're doing. Great Job - Keep it up! I will certainly be recommending you for future events.

Everyone working there, including yourself, treated us respectfully, even with some humor, which we enjoyed. The food was excellent, and of course the weather cooperated to make it a memorable trip.

Dear Staff of Lockport Locks Cruises,
I wanted to express my appreciation for the wonderful experience our students had visiting the Lockport Locks and museum. The field trip brought to life all that we have learned about the Erie Canal. It was an invaluable educational experience that was made possible by the professionalism and vast knowledge that your staff shared with the children. Thank you for giving our students a personal understanding of the importance of learning about our area's rich history. We look forward to visiting with our classes in the future!

Our group from J and J Travel, had a delightful cruise this summer. They raved about the food. Later in the summer , I took my brother and his grandchild and we did the cruise. They loved it. You have a gem. And in that I haven't been up in two or three years, I couldn't believe how nice and what you have accomplished. It was easy to find, the sandwich was good and of course the cruise was a delight. Thanks. Hope to see you in the future.
