Dear Shana,

Thank you for doing such a great job planning and executing Jen’s reception. I have received many compliments from the happy guests.

Your suggestions for the menu and the timing of the serving were spot on. I was particularly impressed with your flexibility dealing with some of the last minute logistical changes with a smile. Kudos to the chef, the servers and the bartender as well.

Thank you for a great experience. It was a pleasure working with you.

Regards, Arlene

Hi Aimee,

I wanted you to know that the bridal shower went perfectly and to extend my sincere thanks to the staff for making our event so special and memorable! Shauna’s bridal shower was such a special day for our family! The food and especially the staff were fabulous! Their service was flawless and they made it seem effortless!

Hi Shana,

Just wanted to drop you a note to let you know what a great time we had on the 13th. The room and the food were perfect, but I really want to give a huge thank you to Deb and Paul. They were fantastic! The service was warm and friendly and perfectly timed. You are lucky to have them on your staff.

Thank you for helping us arrange such a perfect night. We’ll be back.


Dear Aimee,

I just wanted to say THANK YOU!!! The shower was wonderful, everyone has a great time and loved the food!! Deb and the bartender (I forgot her name, but she was lovely) were awesome!!

Everyone kept saying what a nice job I did, but your staff made it so easy, kept things running smooth and took care of any little thing that popped up. You guys made me look good!! 😉

Thanks again!! I look forward to working with you again!



I just wanted to shoot you a quick note to say thanks again for your hospitality at Stockyard for our retreat happy hour earlier this week!  Everyone on staff was so kind and patient and accommodating.  This isn’t an easy group to please, so that’s no short order!

Thanks again for being so amazing.  Please pass my feedback along to everyone there.  Have a great weekend!



Hi Aimee,

I wanted to thank you for hosting our post Cradles to Crayons event yesterday. The food was delicious and everyone had an excellent time! Our server, Enzo, was fantastic, very attentive and friendly, and the bar tender (whose name I unfortunately forget) was wonderful as well.

Once again thank you so much. You were incredibly helpful and a pleasure to work with!

Very Best,


Wow, what more can I say? Stockyard Tavern was an ideal location for my best friend’s recent baby shower. She was coming in with her fiancé from the west coast and we wanted a venue close to Boston, where the families could meet for the first time! Everyone was completely amazed by the Tavern Room.


The location was perfect — cozy, warm, comfortable, stately, beautiful and affordable! We got all of that AND great food and top of the line service! From the moment that I told Aimee what I needed for the event— linens, gift table, mimosa station and more, she had a clear plan in place and it was ALL executed as soon as I walked into the room.


Paul and Joey were both so accommodating and friendly, providing great service, friendly conversation and the best cocktails from behind that beautiful oak bar! You guys really impressed me and I had guests leaving, saying this was the ‘ BEST’ baby shower they had ever been to! Hands down, I will be hosting my next event in the Tavern Room!


Thanks Aimee, Paul, Joey and Jerry! You guys rock!

See you soon!

Many thanks for your help with the luncheon today for the men of the Cambridge YMCA. The food was wonderful, the service by Shana was fantastic and the room was ideal for our event.


We would like to do it again on Friday, December 11 at 12:15 PM. Please let me know if this date is available as I want to give our members plenty of advance notice.


Again, thank you!

HI Aimee –


We just wanted to thank you all for the great time provided for our employee’s “post-wedding celebration”. Everyone who attended commented on the quality of the service, the backround music, the wonderful feel of the Tavern Room and most importantly, the food. The whole process was very smooth from beginning to end, and it was a very relaxing and enjoyable night for all.


When we have another need for an evening out, you’ll be the first call we make ..


Thanks again,

Dear Mr. Lynch,


My husband and I hosted our son’s rehearsal dinner at the Stockyard June 6, 2014. It was a fabulous night filled with family, anticipation and wonderful food, thanks to Aimee Magner. She was to it that every little detail was covered and that I was able to relax an d enjoy the moment.


We have always enjoyed dining at the Stockyard and knew it would be an excellent choice for our celebration, but Aimee went above and beyond dealing with last minute count changes, child counts and meals, etc. I was unraveling and she was cool, calm and collected.


Ironically, the bachelors took Jason to the Stockyard the night before for his Bachelor Dinner. Needless to say, they were ecstatic about going again so soon.


We heard nothing but rave reviews and the plans for return visits to your wonderful restaurant. Thank you again. Your staff is superior, the food is outstanding and the atmosphere is ideal. I apologize for the tardiness of this thank you note. The summer month just got away from me!!


Very Truly Yours

Ellen Yutkins

Hello Aimee!


The luncheon on Sunday went off without a hitch! Everything turned out so well! The room was a great size…the food was delicious…the service was great…. we can’t say enough good things about the Stockyard in general! Paul and Jackie were so helpful for anything we needed, no matter how small. And they had great personalities to match!


And the biggest plus was that my Dad was SO surprised! Her could not believe that the whole family was together and we actually surprised him!


We had not been to the Stockyard recently, but we will certainly be more regular customers now! Thanks to you and the staff for helping us with such a memorable event for our family!


All the best,

Helen Fenerlis

Hi Aimee,


I just wanted to thank you & the staff for Sunday’s luncheon. Everyone at the Stockyard was very accommodating & though we unwittingly arrived early, they were wonderful in setting us up & serving us right away. My guests loved their meals & the staff- I could not have been more pleased.


Thank you so much,

Hi Aimee,


I just wanted to let you know how wonderful our event was on Sunday, June 29th. Everything looked beautiful and the food was very tasty. I got many comments on the nice space and the yummy food. The timing worked out perfectly for our event, although it was tough to get people to sit down for the salad course. They were too into gabbing after not seeing each other in so long.


Please tell Paul the bartender and Joey the server that they added to the wonderful day. They were attentive to our every need. Excellent job all around. We will certainly use The Stockyard again and recommend you to our friends and relatives.


Denise Bogosian and family



Thanks so much for extending yourself and your staff for our group last night. EVERYONE was impressed with the food and service. I’m sure you’ll be seeing them again. Everything was top shelf!


Thank you!

I wanted to reach out and say that my wife (Sonya) and daughter (her birthday) had a wonderful experience at the Stockyard last Monday. We frequented the old Stockyard for years, and after moving to Lexington, now have less opportunity to be in Brighton.You’ve done a great job elevating the staff, menu, kitchen, and ambiance to a much higher level. We ended up seeing a number of friends that evening – who all raved about how much nicer the Stockyard is than before. A pleasant surprise for everyone. And we appreciated you coming by the high top to see how we were doing.You’ll see more of us, as the trip is well worth the result.
