Corinthian Yacht Club was wonderful. Dealing with Greg and the staff was so easy for me a first timer throwing a party for my sons wedding. All of the guest were amazed and impressed with the club and the food was great. I will definitely use the Corinthian again if I have another affair to plan.

The Corinthian Yacht Club venue was absolutely perfect for our wedding day August 2, 2014. We had an outdoor reception with 180 guests. The venue is beautiful, and our guests are still raving about it. Words cannot describe how wonderful everything was from the setup of all the tables and decorations, to the delicious food. The food was far better than average wedding food, and the Sangria was GREAT… along with many other cocktails. Everything far surpassed all our expectations. Greg was wonderful to deal with. From quick response times to flawless execution of table and wedding décor; he was nothing shy of outstanding in both coordinating and running the event. He worked with our budget and made it an absolutely perfect wedding. Every one of our friends had the best time of their lives. It was truly the best day of our life, and you will not be disappointed with your event here. We give both the Corinthian Yacht Club and Greg 5+ Stars and would recommend Greg and the Yacht club to anyone looking for an outstanding event. We can’t thank Greg and his team enough for our perfect day.

General Manager Greg Rashdorf and staff made sure that my daughters big day was perfect in every way. The staffs attention to every detail and their obvious enjoyment in working as a team to provide the best concerted effort was obvious in everything that they did from our initial meeting with Greg to the last dance at the reception. KUDOS Corinthian Yacht Club, we are still receiving phone calls and notes from our guests wanting to tell us what a great time they had and that it was the best wedding they had ever attended.

Greg and the staff at the Corinthian made our wedding ceremony and reception a totally wonderful and memorable experience. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day by the water. From the ceremony overlooking the river, to the cocktail hour under the tent, to the buffet dinner in the main dining room and then dancing under the stars -- we couldn't have asked for a more exceptional evening. Greg's extensive knowledge and experience in wedding planning made the planning of our wedding easy and seamless for which I am eternally grateful. He accomodated our every need and he orchestrated the entire event from beginning to end without a hitch (plus he figured out how to get the cannon to go off so David was extremely happy!). I can't say enough great things about the Corinthian staff. They made us feel incredibly special -- I personally felt pampered by each staff member and I know our guests felt the same way. We also received rave reviews about the food especially the tuna! I personally loved all of it!

David and I can't say enough about our special day on June 7, 2014 at the Corinthian Yacht Club. We will always cherish our experience and hold on to the memories with our family and friends on this brilliant evening by the water in Essington, PA. Many thanks to Greg and his staff for making this day so exceptional for us!

The Corinthian Yacht Club is a hidden gem in Essington. Most of my guests kept asking, "How did you find this place?" Our reception began at 5:30pm. Most of my guests arrived to watch the sun set over the river. As it was a November wedding the fireplaces were roaring and welcoming guests in from the cold. The charm of the Yacht club created a romantic and intimate space.
The food was excellent! I might be biased, but I think it was the best wedding food I ever had. Many unique options to serve your guests, but also the food is served WARM!!! Lastly, Greg is a delight to work with. Extremely laid back, but also completely in control at the same time. His professionalism and talent made the evening flow naturally. Honestly, it was the reception of my dreams

My husband and I were thrilled with the service we received from the Corinthian Yacht Club and its manager, Greg. In addition to the beautiful and well kept building itself, the grounds and view can't be beat! Greg was helpful in every step of the planning process and very flexible when it came to decorations, table set up, working with the band, and all other special requests/concerns we had. He even looked at the tide schedule to make sure the date we picked would be during high tide so the view over the river would be ideal. The food was DELICIOUS and all servers were extremely kind and professional. We are very happy we went with the Corinthian and would highly recommend this venue!

The Corinthian Yacht Club was an absolute pleasure to work with. I visited and researched many venues in the Philadelphia area and many of them were very inflexible with many things to include the floor plans, meal menu, restricted areas for guests, bar options, and the list could go on. I was so frustrated with many of the venues, but fortunately, I found the Corinthian Yacht Club.

Gregg worked with us on EVERYTHING and he was always very responsive and accommodating. I was able to plan a menu and bar that fit our budget. We also had full access the to club and the grounds for the entire day (some venues have 2, 3 or even 4 other weddings going on at the same time as yours). There were a few different options as to where to set up the cocktail hour, dinner and dancing. I went with cocktail hour outside in the test, dinner and dancing inside. Our photos turned out amazing and our guests are still raving about how beautiful the reception was!

I highly recommend this place to anyone looking to have any type of special event.
