"Lanam Club is both beautiful and elegant. The staff here is very friendly and helpful... And the food is incredible. I had the sirloin and it was one of the best cooked cuts of beef I have ever had. Perfect for a special event or wedding... We attended a wedding here a few weeks ago and my wife and I still can not stop telling people how much we enjoyed ourselves..  As you can tell from the previous reviews this place is second to none... Just a short ride from Boston too. A can't miss..."

"I will keep this review short and sweet, because I can see that the Lanam Club already has a great reputation!


I had my wedding there just this past Saturday, and I am still in awe of the place.  Tim, the general manager, is a phenomenal guy to work with.  He was always calm, cool, and collected, very informative, helpful, and communicative.  He was flexible about all our details - from the music (which we planned ourselves and played from a computer), to getting the Bruins game on the TV during the Stanley Cup, to ensuring that there was scotch available for my dad!

The waitstaff are excellent - friendly and quick, without being oppressive.  The FOOD.  I can't tell you how great the food is.  We had the duck breast and the sirloin steak, and all the guests were raving about how delicious it was.

I could go on and on, but I think you get the picture.  Check this place out for your wedding or other special event!"

One of the best things we did was join the Lanam Club. We love it.

"Tim and the Lanam staff were more than I could have hoped for in a reception venue. My brother and his wife also had their reception at Lanam, and were also impressed. From the start, Tim was open to all our silly ideas - we even hung some custom artwork on the walls! The Club was the perfect fit for our antique-style wedding - dark wood and fireplaces, and the most beautiful bar. We had access to the venue the entire day, and when we arrived earlier than we had planned, Tim made sure we were comfortable and outfitted with champagne. When we told Tim we were bringing flowers from the ceremony, he promised to fit them in wherever they could. When the dance floor got too warm, Tim turned off the fireplaces. When a guest at the last minute told me she was vegan, Tim promised they would make her a special entree. Dinner was provided for our photographer and DJ, and our guests were allowed to leave their cars overnight. Thank you, Lanam!"

"Tim at the Lanam Club is one of the most professional catering managers I have ever worked with. This is our third wedding at the Club and it was probably the most spectacular and Tim had a large part to play in this. The food was incredible (a friend whose daughter was recently married at the Ritz in Boston remarked that the food was better at Lanam Club!). The newly installed tent added hugely to the Gatsby atmosphere of the entire venue. All the staff could not have been more helpful. 
To be honest I was sad when the night was over. 

Having had 3 daughters' wedding celebrations there the last few year would we have another event at the Lanam Club? ABSOLUTELY!

"The LANAM Club occupies what was once Orlando Cottage, the home of  textile baron William M. Wood built for his son in 1916. Sitting on absolutely beautiful grounds, it is both elegant and reserved. Walking through the LANAM Club truly gives one the sense of stepping back in time. And the dining experience doesn't disappoint. The service was extraordinary as was the cuisine. I ordered Veal Scaloppini Fortina which was excellent. My dinner companions both ordered the Baked Haddock, one of the evening specials. They both raved about how well it was prepared. I cannot compliment either the Chef nor our gracious waitress, Sue, highly enough. They made us feel as though we were the only people in this elegant, grand manor. What an extraordinary, memorable evening."

"Went to a recent wedding at this old club.   It still has all the beauty one could ask for.  This was an outdoor ceremony which was on a nearly perfect spring day.  Decor is beautiful inside and out with plenty of off-street parking on a serene rural setting near downtown Andover.  The bar area was nice, plenty of seating to welcome people and drinks are made strong like they should be.   I enjoyed the salmon or the cucumber and goat cheese appetizers the best.  I thought the food and desserts were excellent....I had the steak with potatoes and asparagus.   The list of desserts is too long for me to list, I tried a little of everything.  Service was excellent all around."
