Best Rehearsal Dinner Venue

The rehearsal dinner is an important time to connect with family and friends who have traveled from far and wide to join you on your special day. And Johnny’s Italian Steakhouse (4751 Owen Ayres Court, Eau Claire) knows a thing or two about making important moments feel magical, as they consistently rank at the top of our Reader Poll. In second place, Cowboy Jack’s (1432 Front Porch Place, Altoona) brings a more relaxed vibe to a rehearsal dinner, with their relaxing outdoor patio in the summertime. In third place, Houligans Steak & Seafood Pub (415 S. Barstow St., Eau Claire) brings unique food to the table. –Rebecca Mennecke
