I always love photographing at 128 South & Bakery 105! The staff are super friendly and helpful, and events always run smoothly. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a wedding venue in downtown Wilmington.

Attended for a friends wedding. I loved the space, it didn't need much decorating. The only thing I didn't love was that the dance floor was on the back deck. A lot of people ended up leaving immediately following dinner so I think with the proper entertainment, this could have been avoided. All in all though, I loved spending the night outside on the back deck dancing.

I was there for a wedding on a Saturday and it was just wonderful. The ceremony was outside on a deck behind the building and it was very nice. There was a storm outside, but luckily they had a tent over the deck so everyone was kept dry. The dinner/reception was back inside the building and it was so beautiful, the upper story is a nice touch and Adda so much extra space for eating and table space. The dancing was back outside on the deck and it was very nice. I'm from California so the humidity was getting to me while dancing, but if you are from the area I would imagine you would be used to it.

Food was absolutely incredible and staff very pleasant. Great view of the channel and beautiful on the inside. Suitable for events under 100 people.

Pop up soup kitchen every Thursday. Xlnt bowl of soup and a piece of very tasty bread for $5. Best deal in town.

We were married there in August of 2019 and the facility was fantastic. The inside is beautiful and didn't need any significant decorations. The back deck view looks over the water at the battleship which made for amazing pictures. What really gets this place 5 stars is the staff and wedding coordinators. Katie was out "day of coordinator" but she set everything up from start to finish including making arrangements with florist, party supplies, catering, etc. Everything went as planned to the MINUTE. The set up beforehand was all done without us even being there. She took our ideas and made them into the exact reality. Overall this is an excellent wedding venue and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking.

My husband and I had our wedding reception at 128 South on April 26th and I can't say enough kind things about this venue. We did get off to a rocky start (I don't suggest working with or touring the facility with Jill if she is still with the company) but Katie made sure to re-instill my confidence in the venue after bringing my concerns to her attention and she and Jordan went above and beyond for our wedding day. Katie was so cooperative and flexible when I was trying to coordinate a tour with my many family members who of course wanted to be involved. She was very informative but also let us have our space and time to really walk through the venue.Jordan assisted me throughout the planning process and as a Private Event Manager myself, let me just say she was on top of absolutely every little thing! She made my life so much easier during the planning process and I can't thank her enough for answering my many questions and for being so patient with me. She even helped to keep an eye on the weather forecast during the week of the wedding to help me decide on a plan of action on whether or not to rent siding for the tent that the venue provides. We scheduled phone calls so I was able to talk through things with her, and she always responded promptly to my emails. I appreciate everything she did so very much.Our guests and family are still commenting on how delicious the food was at our reception and their bartenders were awesome. The staff was incredibly helpful during setup and throughout the evening. This is the perfect venue if you want a classic look, with historic, downtown Wilmington charm and the view of the river is just the icing on the cake!

Nice venue. Filet Mignon was perfect.

Review №13

Right in the heart of Wilmington this small but quaint little restaurant is a great find. The food is always hot and fresh and the staff very accommodating. About the only issue you will have here is trying to find some decent parking to get in and of course being on the smaller side not having to wait too long to get a table probably a good idea to try to make a reservation.

128 South was a perfect venue for our small wedding. Chere' was our Day of Coordinator and she was amazing to work with throughout the whole process. The entire staff on the day of the wedding was so nice and helpful. They set up, broke down, and took care of us during the wedding. The venue was beautiful and the food was amazing! We would highly recommend this venue!

Nice venue, historic building, smaller than other local venues.

Review №16

128 South is a gorgeous venue and the people could not be more helpful. We had our wedding reception here and they coordinated all of the details, so you are getting an event planner as well. Once you make the decisions, you can relax and know that everything will go off without a hitch. The food is absolutely delicious. All of our guests raved about it. The servers were excellent and friendly and very attentive to us, the newlyweds. The 128 staff were fantastic about making suggestions and helping us with the timeline of the event and the layout. Everyone there had a blast and we dared not even hope for such a perfect evening. If you want the icing on your cake, hire the band Machine Gun. The dance floor was packed all night and our guests could not say enough about the band. Thanks Cherie, JJ and Katherine for an evening we will always remember as the time of our lives!

Perfectly taken care of our wedding party of 50 people. Big outside deck, great service and very good food.

Review №18

128 South is a charming venue, and just perfectly located in downtown Wilmington, NC. We had our wedding and reception there. The staff was accommodating (and I changed my mind a lot), the deejay (Brian Hood) was awesome, and the food was delicious! I have nothing but good things to say about the venue, and would highly recommend it to anyone!

My wedding reception was held at 128 a few weeks ago. I must say that Mira and JJ were absolutely wonderful to work with... always so nice and eager to help! The others, not so friendly. The reception was absolutely beautiful and I really don't have much to complain about! In fact, I've only heard great things since the reception, and everyone raved about the food! Go with fried chicken and pulled pork and you'll have happy guests:) With that said, I really only have one major issue to report: 128 created our schedule for the evening, so they were very aware that our speeches/toasts were to be held outside before coming in for dinner. When we began the toasts, the very expensive sparkling wine and glasses that my husband and I provided were nowhere to be found! I WAS MORTIFIED! How embarrassing is it to have nothing to toast with when people are toasting YOU?! We were the only ones empty-handed. It was horrible. This wasn't the only thing to go wrong, but it's the only thing worth sharing. Everyone says that your wedding day can't be perfect, but with how much I paid them and the amount of communication I had with them, there is no reason that the things that did go wrong, went wrong.They also require that you rent a tent for the deck, with walls, so that they can block out the loud music from next door, just FYI. Seems like this is something they should have considered when building the deck (build your own wall so that we don't have to rent tent walls). Just an extra, unnecessary expense for us brides.Regardless of this, I did love my event there and would recommend 128 South to future brides.
