The coordinator I worked with Sharon to set everything up for our wedding was wonderful. She was very accommodating and willing to let us adjust things like the cocktail menu and make substitutions which was one of the things that made us want to book our wedding here as opposed to other venues that wouldn't allow changes. Unfortunately, she had to go away the week of our wedding for a family funeral and wasn't there to oversee things and I believe had she been there things would have went more smoothly. I had to help setup things I wanted at the reception because they were short staffed and ensure they were done the way I wanted even though I had typed up what I wanted and gave it to them 2 days prior as requested so that made things a little more stressful for me. Other than that everything else went beautifully! We had great weather so the ceremony was outside by the gazebo and the reception was inside. The food was great and the drinks were great!!!

Eastern Yacht Club hosted our ceremony and reception. Sharon, Mike and Bill were absolutely amazing! The entire process of booking and planning was made so much easier and stress free thanks to Sharon. Mike provided absolutely delicious food and Bill helped to answer any questions and made the set up absolutely perfect. I didn't have to worry about anything on our wedding day. They cater to each couples individual needs and they are all a joy to work with. The venue is gorgeous and you can't beat the views on the water.

They did an excellent job supporting my daughters wedding. They took care of setting up the wedding to our specs. The staff was polite and responsive. The wedding and venue was beautifully setup and the event was absolutely beautiful. The outside decks were an added feature to the lovely hall. The bridal suite was a great place for the the bridal party to spend a day doing hair and makeup. It was an all around great experience. Great lighting and we added some up lighting which made the pictures that much nicer. We are just starting to see some of our professional pics taken by the water and they are lovely.

My husband and I looked at a few venues before one of my colleagues referred me to the Eastern Yacht Club. I'm so thankful that he did, because I had the perfect wedding!

Deb, Gary and Ben were so great to work with and I am just so happy with how everything turned out.

Everyone at Eastern Yacht Club was wonderful. The food was delicious, they set everything up beautifully! They made everything seamless and were right there when ever we needed anything. The caterer was amazing! The only complaint I have is that you can only meet with them on Thursdays and usually it's not until 6pm or after.

We couldn't have asked for a better place to have our wedding reception. It is absolutely gorgeous there. The water looks beautiful. The staff there is awesome. They were so pleasant and helpful and I couldn't thank them enough for being so great and helping make our special day perfect.

Deb was great to work with and she was always easy to contact and she helped with all the questions that I had along the planning process. One of the big things that I loved about the Eastern Yacht Club was that my wedding reception was the only event that day. So I didn't have to worry about waiting for another party to clear or anything of that sort. It was really my day! Our wedding was on Saturday, May 5, 2012 and since they did not have an event scheduled the night before we were able to go in and set up our decorations for the wedding reception which was great because we didn't have to worry about anything the morning of the wedding.

Ben Munoz with Royal Affairs Catering was just as great. The food was delicous. There was food everywhere and it was all delicous. The guests all commented on how good the food was. We had a ton of hor dourves such as crab dip, shrimp cocktail, meatballs, fruit, cheese and vegetables and I am sure that I am missing a few other things but it was so much food. We chose the second menu and had Chicken Chesapeake and Prime Rib which were bother delicous. The great thing is that your guests don't have to choose one entree. They get both! How great is that!

We would highly recommend this venue for all celebrations. Our wedding was beautiful and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

My partner and I looked at quite a few venues before ending up at Eastern Yacht Club, and we were absolutely blown away. The gazebo outside overlooking the water was perfect for our ceremony, and the indoors were set up beautifully by Ben Munoz and his amazing staff from Royal Affairs Catering (exclusive caterer for the venue).
Our guests are still raving about the venue, the bar and the food - specifically the huge well stoked, oval-shaped bar with friendly and accommodating bartenders, and the beautiful deck overlooking the gazebo and water. Before you settle on another water-oriented venue, definitely check this one out. You will be blown away. The only down-side to the entire experience of working with the venue (and this is distinct from the caterer, with whom you contract and deal with separately) is that it is challenging to contact the venue representatives. Any on-site meetings (including the rehearsal) can only occur on Thursdays after 6pm. Taking that into account - we loved the EYC, and would recommend it to anyone for an event.

Hadn't thought much about the events leading up to our wedding, since we got married. My mother in-law and wife dealt directly with the contact (I believe her name was Deb). From all accounts, Deb was helpful and Pleasant. Once the venue was paid for an outside caterer, Ben, who you must use if you book your wedding there, runs it. I flew in town on specific dates to see the venue and do a tasting. Ben had told my wife to just call the day before we wanted to come and it wouldn't be a problem. She calls and he was rude and could not accommodate the next day. I called and tried to relate, since I work in hospitality. Ben was rude, unprofessional and at one point angrily stated, "you can come pick up your check, I don't need your business". Well, If we weren't a month away from our wedding, that's exactly what we would have done. He finally stated that we could do a tasting the day after we were trying for. When we went for the tasting, Ben never met with us, only his daughter who was absolutely professional, polite and served us terrific food. She apologized for the interaction I had with her father which was nice, but should have come from Ben. The venue is beautiful. That much I can attest to. The day of the wedding was good. Ben, although not dressed for the occasion, served good, hot food, was professional, but again, never mentioned the issue. We only had one problem with the food. it was buffet and after only 1 trip per guest, Ben and his staff broke down the food stations and were heading out. They did not ask if anyone wanted seconds or speak to any of us, just started packing up. My mother in-law asked Ben what was happening. His only response, "I thought you were finished". After it was over, we were cleaning up and a random guy came in and started yelling for us to hurry up. He even turned off the lights. My mother in-law got to him before me. All in all, I would not recommend this venue. Not treated well.
