One of Westchester’s unique jewels, Glen Island was originally created in 1879 as a summer resort for a business representitive named John H. Starin. In 1923, Glen Island Park and Casino was acquired by Westchester County.

The Glen Island Casino was a springboard to success during the 1930's Big Band Era, including that of Ozzie Nelson, Charlie Barnet, Claude Thornhill, Les Brown and the Dorsey Brothers.

In March of 1939, Glenn Miller and his orchestra got their big break when they were chosen to play a summer season at the prestigious Glen Island Casino.

The casino was closed in 1978, but reopened in December 1983. The original shell of the building and the dance floor in the second-floor ballroom, where the bands played, were retained.

Most recently, a new era has begun. After a $10 million dollar renovation, the Glen Island Casino transformed into the Glen Island Harbour Club—Westchester's premier banquet facility—where new, everlasting memories are created Read less

Fell in love with Glen Island the moment we drove to the front entrance and even more when we entered the building! The staff was very welcoming on our initial tour of the place and allowed us to see every room we would be allowed on the day of our event. Rocco is our contact person and he is amazing! He answered ALL my questions, very attentive. When he was busy with clients, he always made sure to return a call within the next several hours even if it was past business hours.

So far, I am super impressed with Glen Island. I've done my food tasting back in April 2015 and I am still drooling. If I wasn't already impressed by the elegance of the place, I am head over heels in love with the menu. The chef is beyond words. We had five start treatment during the tasting with drinks. ;-) They really know how to make you feel welcomed here. If I had to search again, I would still go with Glen Island Harbour Club because they want your day to go smoothly and be what you've always dreamed.

We are getting married at the Glen Island Harbour Club on 11/7/15. Last Friday was our tasting, everything was so amazing, I have no idea what we are going to choose for our final selection! One dish was better than the next! The staff was pleasant & the service was excellent! Especially working with Rodney these past few months, he has been there every step of the way, never misses an email, phone call & is quick to respond to every question we may have (even the silly ones lol) I cannot wait to see what they have in store for us on the big day! Glen Island & the staff are truly a dream!

I can't even begin to explain how amazing Glen Island Harbour Club is; they were so amazing that words here can't even do it justice. Rocco is absolutely the best person to do business with; he took care of us during our entire journey (one year prep). When we visited Glen Island, my husband and I just knew that we had to get married there. We used their ceremony room upstairs, their cocktail room downstairs by the water, and their reception room upstairs. Everything was PERFECT - not one thing went wrong on our wedding day. We even had a last minute guest show up and Rocco did his magic with his staff and added it in with no problem. From the valet, the coat check, the drinks being served the minute guests arrived, the ceremony being flawless (with Rocco right there with me opening the doors when my Papa and I walked down the aisle), to our signature drinks being served to our guests as they made their way into the cocktail hour, to the awesome maitre de who kept me informed of everything that was going on, to the most amazing cocktail hour you have ever seen, to my face when seeing our reception room for the first time, our amazing dinner and the most CRAZY VIENNESE HOUR EVER (think every desert imaginable) - I swear that people are still talking about how much food there was at our wedding and that it was the best food they have ever had at the wedding and that they must have gained 10 pounds (which is a big plus in my book because I hate when I leave a wedding hungry!), to our amazing cake (they arrange the cake for you) and it was EXACTLY as I had asked it to be, to all the items being packed up and ready to go when we left, including meals for us since we had no time to eat....I literally can go on and on but this was the best decision (out of all our amazing vendors) we ever made for our wedding. Go to Glen Island...check it out, and meet with Rocco if you can!

The first time my husband and I stepped foot inside this venue - we were wowwed! The venue is gorgeous especially being right by the water. Rocco was our banquet manager and you can quickly tell he knows his stuff and will make sure your wedding is amazing. From selecting the venue to the day of the wedding, our process was seamless. Rocco made everything really easy and enjoyable. On our wedding date, our maitre'd was James and my bridal attendant was Andrea. Both were amazing - throughout the night, they bought us food and drinks to make sure we were eating and drinking and having a good time! The service at GIHC is phenomenal. We also paid for the extra viennese hour and I have never seen so much dessert in one room ever. We were so glad we got it! Our guests rave about the wedding and how good the food and service is at GIHC! We were SO SO glad we had our wedding at GIHC and can't wait for one of our friends to get married there so we can go there again!

Glen Island ticked all of our boxes when it came to choosing a wedding venue, and we are glad we did since you are not just getting a beautiful venue with this location, but an exceptional team who knows how to put on a great wedding.

From the outset, Rocco was the ultimate professional, approachable, responsive and willing to offer advice/guidance where needed. We were very lucky that Rocco was flexible with timings as we were organizing the wedding from London and only had short trips back to NY for planning and he always sought to accommodate our sometimes less than flexible schedule. He is a great person to work with in planning your important day.

The food was fantastic and we have only heard positive things from out guests. From the cocktail hour which blew us and our guests away, all the food was fresh and well prepared and with great flavours too. The tasting was great and the chef went out of his way to prepare one of the fish options for us to try. On the day he and the team in the kitchen delivered all the meals on time and to a high standard, they really know what they're doing in there.

The staff on the night were exceptional, led by James we were made to feel very welcome at the venue and the team was always attentive to us and our guests, and always very polite. James made a special effort to make sure the happy couple were.....well happy! and even extended the hospitality to our parents too. James made sure everything ran to plan and on time and that we managed to get all the photo opps in too, he and the team definitely took the stress out of running the event on the day so we could enjoy the party. Our bridal attendant also did a great job making sure the bride and groom got some of the food from cocktail hour and also helped with bustling the dress.

Overall we have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Glen Island as it's not just a beautiful venue but has a phenomenal team ready to make your day very special.

Dear Bill,
We are still smiling, reveling in the amazing wedding that you and your staff flawlessly created for us. Every one of our 290 guests was delighted with the venue, the food, the service, the ambiance, and the joy of the evening. So many of our guests praised every aspect of the evening. The room felt warm, spacious, and welcoming. The food was incredible, plentiful, beautifully displayed and served. The staff was attentive and professional. John was exceptional as our maître d'.

What more could we have wished for? Not one thing!!!! Bill, we are eternally grateful to you for all your guidance, your spirit and warmth, your gracious accommodations, and good humor. You have perfected the art of creating a magical event.

Please share our sentiments with your staff and management. We are so happy!

With love and high regard,
Jamie and David Greene

We couldn't have asked for a better wedding reception venue than Glen Island Harbour Club. Jack and his staff were extremely accommodating throughout the whole process and made sure our special day was nothing short of perfect. All of our guests were extremely impressed with the overall service and attention to detail that Glen Island provided. We hope we are lucky enough to attend many more weddings at Glen Island Harbour Club in the future.

I cannot say enough about this venue! I LOVE Them!! From the first day we walked in the door to when we left our wedding, they are so attentive and go above and beyond!!!!
The venue and location is so beautiful, which is why we initially chose this venue. Anytime I told someone we were getting married at Glen Island they would rave about the food. You really don't hear that about venues. Going to wedding's the food will taste bland and mass produced. NOT GLEN ISLAND! The food was AMAZING!!!!! From the tasting to the cocktail hour to the dinner to the goodies they give your guests when the are leaving!
The staff goes above and beyond! The are so attentive and pay close attention to all details of your wedding. We didn't have to do a thing except for live in the moment and enjoy our day! Even when my husband forgot his yamika, they found one for him.
I cannot thank them enough for everything they did for us before, during and after the wedding. I am sad that we will not be working with them anymore. However, if I do have another event it will definitely be there. I hope I get invited to a wedding or event there! Soon!
