I cannot rave about the DYC enough! If you have never been, it is definitely worth a visit if you are looking for a wedding venue...it is beautiful! The staff is also very helpful. We worked with Emily and she was AMAZING! She was so patient, helpful, and willing to do anything to make our day perfect! She worked with us from the time we booked to the time we left the venue on the night of our wedding. The food is great too (many guests told us it was the best wedding food they have had!). We are so glad that we chose the Detroit Yacht Club for our special day! Our guests had an amazing time and all of our photos taken here were breathtaking!

From the very beginning, our experience with the Detroit Yacht Club was amazing! It was easy to book our tour of the venue, and everyone who works in the catering department is incredibly friendly, fun and easy going. We worked with Nikki, she was like a friend who happened to be helping you plan your day. Communication was easy and clear and they were very supportive of any changes we needed to make or questions we had. The food is AMAZING! We had a really fun time at our tasting and everything, including wine, was very good. Two weeks before our wedding we found out Nikki had taken a new job and would not be at our wedding, you can imagine this was a shock to us. Her right hand, Emily, took over and not a detail was missed. Emily slipped right in, she had all our information and was just as friendly and helpful. The day of, we walked into our reception and before I could even blink, Emily and her staff were at the door with champagne and snacks for the wedding party as we got ready for our grand entrance. The rest of the night, I barely saw them - they were really behind the scenes and let the guests enjoy the night. The wait staff is incredibly polite and professional. The operation at the DYC is flawless, the venue is beautiful and the people who work there really care about you.

The Detroit Yacht Club is definitely a venue to wow your guests. Both banquet halls are gorgeous, and offer a beautiful backdrop for the reception with ample space for guests to spread out both during cocktail hour and after dinner. The food was delicious, and definitely impressed our guests. Everything went smoothly and the Detroit Yacht Club was very responsive to the constant questions I had during the planning process. You can't go wrong with the Detroit Yacht Club as a wedding venue.

We had our ceremony and reception here! Our ceremony was outside in the "star light circle" and our reception was inside in the fountain room. Nikki and the staff were so amazing to work with and made our day amazing. Nikki helped us work through every bump in the road and even solved a last minute crisis the day before wedding. All of our guests LOVED the food and views this venue had to offer!

We had our ceremony and reception at DYC and there is absolutely no way possible that it could have been anymore beautiful. Emily was AMAZING from the very beginning right up till the very end. She certainly doesn't do her job just for a paycheck, She's a natural. We love you Emily!! We also miss you!! The DYC staff is so well trained and all so genuine. Everything was perfect from the food to the room to the workers. This is the ABSOLUTE best place in Detroit to have your wedding. They made my husband and I feel like family. Belle Isle is amazing this time of year. Our guests are still talking about how perfect everything was and how comfortable they all felt there. Thank You! Thank You!! Thank You!! We will be back to stay for our anniversary for many more years to come!

This venue is GORGEOUS! And the food is wonderful. However... If you are planning a wedding, GOOD LUCK with the staff!! Crystal is absolutely HORRIBLE to deal with! You will never get a response by phone of email. I had to leave multiple voicemails and multiple emails within a 2 week period before ever getting a hold of her. She didn't show up to our rehearsal and was annoyed by us requesting her presence. She is unprofessional and down right RUDE! She left multiple details of our wedding out until the very last minute. VERY nerve wracking for a bride.... Booking with this venue will add MUCH unneeded stress! But, it is beautiful! :)

My groom and I used the Detroit Yacht Club for our reception. Everything was beautiful and the managers there were very helpful. One thing to look out for is that the waiters were a little quick to clear the tables. Other than that, we had a ball and you can't beat that beautiful view! Also, the prices are very reasonable. We are talking about having my parents' 50th wedding anniversary there in two years.

The DYC is a beautiful place for a wedding. Emily B. is one of the wedding coordinators there, and she is amazing! Everyone was helpful, patient, and professional. Do not let the look of some parts of Belle Isle scare you. The DYC is a gem. Getting married in front of the grand fireplace made for great pictures.

Helpful tip-bring signs for your guests that direct them to the DYC. There are two ways to get there, and it can kind of be confusing to guests who have never been on the island.

We hosted our wedding reception at the DYC in May 2015. All was truly a dream come true... thanks to the beautiful, historic venue, excellent service, delicious food, and strong drinks! The DYC offered a unique reception option in Downtown Detroit without the worry of weather ruining our waterfront wedding dreams. Our 200 guests enjoyed cocktail hour on the covered, open-air veranda... so much so that the DYC staff had to work extra hard to rally them into the ballroom for dinner. Guests walked the docks, checked out the large yachts, and enjoyed views of the city skyline while smoking cigars on the patio. Dinner was delicious... and we are still getting comments on it! We served grilled chicken with a parmesan bacon cream sauce, garlic/lemon whitefish, and a mushroom stack (vegetarian/gluten free). I was surprised when my plate had 2 full chicken breasts on it! As many learned, the gregarious bartenders were not stingy with drinks either -- which was much appreciated by my guests who danced the night away. The DYC was also very flexible... allowing us to bring in cookies for dessert and our own appetizers (Cape Cod potato chips from where we got engaged). With regard to pricing, we found the DYC to be an excellent value!! They allowed us to remove/add things to packages as to best serve our needs/budget. Although the large ballroom is not air conditioned, the temp was perfect. It was a mid-70 degree May day. The large doors on the riverside were open through dinner/dancing. The venue required very little decorations - further keeping costs down. Lastly, Crystal, the banquet director we worked with, was truly a dear! She is professional with a calming demeanor! I highly recommend the DYC! and Belle Isle itself is also quite beautiful/cleaned up with the State of Michigan taking over now.
