The venue was beautiful but I was not as happy with the people that worked there. We had to email them the Tuesday before the wedding on Saturday and give them the final count since no one had contacted us. Then when we did they asked to meet before the event to go over the final contract. Me and my husband both work full time and have two small children and were not able to drop everything that quickly to meet with her. We then had to have the meeting over the phone where she asked to charge the card on file the remaining balance without even telling us what the balance was. We then did not actually see a final contract with the full price until a few days after the event and had to be requested by me to do so. Just was not very professional. The actual venue was beautiful and the event night turned out great, so all in all it was a good choice.

Great wedding packages with unbeatable prices! Plated meals serve quality meat, but food including bread and salad can benefit from more refinement.
We had a beautiful wedding in this place and would do it all over again at the same place. Sandylou the manager is awesome.

This was an awesome place to have a reception. It was raining out when we had our reception but they made sure we were taken care of and still able to go outside yet helped cover us from the rain. The service was exceptional as we had so many service people there to take care of us. They even had construction going on next door but you would have never known it. I would recommend Admiral Baker for your reception needs due to their value and great venue.

Great venue, value and staff overall.

Couple of things to note: "freebies" are not great. Ie , I rented ceremony chairs, reception chair covers and all lines cuz the venue provided items were not great. So that off-set some of the "value". They had 66" tables which are apparently not standard so all the " rental lines" don't fit....So I had a 3" gap at the bottom. Only allowed access 2 hours before event which isn't much time for vender set up. Awful corkage policy.... Must pay for every bottle brought into the venue... Not just the bottles they "un-cork"!!!! Groom was accosted just before ceremony to sign a paper for open bar... Should have been handled earlier or with wedding coordinator. It's a military facility so policies are not great.

Other than that, staff was GREAT! Very responsive & professional. Beautiful event space.

Admiral Baker was a fantastic venue for our wedding. We held the ceremony on the North Patio, then moved inside to the ballroom for the reception. We held all our photos on location, which was well - groomed abd provided great backdrop. The good was wonderful, especially the filet mignon. The chef even came up with a vegetarian option which was not originally included in our menu. They included a lot in their event package, which made planning a hundred times easier.

This was my first choice for venue it has a beautiful view big ball room and just very tasteful look through the whole location, big bar plenty of bathrooms, space space space, loved it. I had to have my wedding on a friday because they book quick but I am so happy I didnt go any where else. Location is perfect dont have to get any clearance for guests and the cordinators are very easy to communicate with they really want to make you happy. I can not say 1 bad thing about this venue the food was incredible staff was amazing I had some very opionated guests and they all had high remarks about food, staff and venue... Go look and this place you will fall in love...

The venue was GREAT!!!!! The location is perfect, central San Diego, and the venue is beautiful. There was plenty of parking for our guests and parking was free. We had our cocktail hour right outside of the ballroom on the patio overlooking the golf course. The appetizers and wine were amazing! Our guests loved the outdoor area and had a blast during cocktail hour. Our reception was held inside the ballroom and dinner was outstanding- delicious, great portions. The great thing about the venue is that our wedding was the only event going on that evening so it had a nice intimate Sandy was a pleasure to work with!!!

We are very happy that we chose to have our reception at the Admiral Baker Clubhouse. The venue was perfect--beautiful and intimate.

We had about 100 guests--the room could hold more, but we purposely kept it at 100 so it would be more manageable (i.e., we would have more time with the guests). With 100 guests, the room was full, but there was still a lot of room to walk around.

We chose to have the cocktail hour on the patio--I highly recommend this! The guests enjoyed their time meeting each other and also jumped into the photo booth we had prior to dinner.

Dinner was amazing. We heard lots of compliments from our guests about the food choices (steak, fish, or vegetarian).

Although the dance floor looked a little small, everyone was able to dance comfortably.

Parking--easy peazy. The other place we looked at was the Admiral Kidd, but access to the base for our vendors and guests would have added an extra layer of complications that we didn't want to worry about. Parking at the Admiral Baker Clubhouse--drive up and park (lots of parking). Easy peazy!

And last but not least, I cannot write this review without writing about Sandy, the Catering Manager. She took EXCELLENT care of us! She went above and beyond to help us with our reception, from food selection to helping us understand our contract, last minute changes, and wrapping everything up. She was extremely patient with all of our questions, worked really well with our wedding coordinator, and really made our reception venue beautiful.

We highly recommend Admiral Baker Clubhouse!
