Captains Roberts table at Discovery Harbour is a beautiful place to hold a quaint wedding. Its located on beautiful Georgian Bay, and the restaurant is a log building with lots of charm! According to Joe, who holds the contract to run Captain roberts table( this is a provincial government site), the restaurant can hold 160-180 people as they have an upper loft area to seat people, BUT i think that would be a little too close for comfort. My wedding had 90 guests, and that was just perfect to seat for a dinner buffet and left a nice enough space for dancing and mingling. We did not use the upper loft for guest seating as i found it would outcast guests, and i didn't want that.. although it was the perfect spot for the dj to set up and spin his majic all night long!!
The food was terrific and they are flexible and willing to make up a great menu with you, either it be buffet style or a seated plated dinner.
One complaint that i had was that they didn't write up any contracts until just before the wedding, so you have to be on top of that and make sure that you get a contract written as soon as you have made your decisions as to food /prices, extra fees etc. I found that since i didn't have anything in writing when we first met and reserved our wedding, there was a couple of extra fees and price discrepencies.
Also, we were quite embarrassed at the end of the night when they handed us the final tally of the open bar, and i realized that the blank cheque i had for them had been left behind at my folks house. Instead of allowing us to return in the morning with the cheque, they demanded that we pay and could not leave until we had paid( even though i had given them a $1000.00 deposit towards it 4 days prior to the wedding), they even went as far to chase my mother down the street to get the money from her. We were standing there stunned, and completely emabarrassed, thank god for my matron of honour's visa card!
