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

Our friends wedding was spectacular last year that my fiancé and I booked our own wedding with Glen Island. The food was delicious and the entire staff was professional. Rocco has been incredibly helpful during our planning. I can't wait to celebrate our upcoming wedding on 5/6/17!

Getting married at Glen Island Harbour Club was the best decision we could have made. They were the most reasonably priced, extremely service oriented, and anticipated our every need. Rocco was absolutely outstanding to work with. He was on top of everything, calm, reassuring, accommodating, and even got us cake "samples" (which ended up being full sized cakes!) when GIHC typically doesn't give those. James "Jimmy" was our maitre d and he was INCREDIBLE. My bridal attendant vanished after cocktail hour, but Jimmy was around everywhere I turned offering me a glass of water, a glass of wine or champagne, making sure I was eating... he was amazing!! At the end of the night, GIHC wrapped up and sent us home with food, the top layer of our cake, and they packed up all of our items for us to take home the next day. Everything about the planning process and the night of our wedding was absolutely flawless, classy, thorough, and smooth. The food was delicious. The cake was moist and flavorful. We had an absolutely perfect wedding, in no small part to the talented folks at Glen Island. I am a type-A highly organized bride with a background in event planning. I didn't have to worry about a single thing or lift a pinky. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

We loved Glen Harbour Island and couldn't recommend it enough. The venue was beautiful and the area around it is stunning. We had our ceremony/reception in daylight, and all our guests were really happy taking in the gorgeous water views. We thought the food was great and the staff are just consummate professionals (Jack was our sales manager). They make everything easy for you, and we were very happy with the level of service and thoughtful care they put in. We couldn't be happier.

I knew I wanted my wedding at this venue the second I walked into the terrace room. Beautiful doesn't even come close to an accurate description. Billy, James, and staff made me feel like a princess from beginning to end. It was the best food I've ever had and have gotten compliments as the best wedding ever and it rings true!!

Wow, where do I begin. Since the first meeting, Jack was very professional and really work with the client. The day of our wedding was absolutely amazing. The staff made everything so easy and beautiful. You could see how they care about each client and want to make everything special . James was absolutely amazing the day of my wedding. He made sure everyone was taken care of and catered directly to the bride and groom, and parents. I can not believe how special he made my day. Naomi was the bridal attendant who was such a sweetheart. At the end of the night, they had complimentary Italian ices and hot pretzels!!! It was such a nice surprise. I am still in awe of what a wonderful job Glen Island did!

We cannot say enough great things about the Glen Island Harbour Club. From the very begging to the end, the Glen Island has mastered how to put on a wedding. They were incredibly attentive to my husband and me along with our families and 150 or so plus guets. Our maître’d James was phenomenal! He knew exactly what was happening at all times, and checked in with us throughout the reception to make sure everything was going as planned. Again, I have no words to explain how incredibly happy I am and how amazing everything was. The bridal attendant was also incredible along with our wedding planner Jack. He was also in attendance at the reception to make sure everything was perfect. I have never seen people so on point – they know exactly what to do, met all my needs got everything organized. It was so perfect. We have gotten countless phone calls and emails from our guests raving about the service and food our wedding. The cocktail hour is out of this world. Many of our guests thought it was the dinner, due to the quality and quantity of food. The pricing for the Glen Island was very comparable to other venue’s we saw in Long Island, New Jersey and New Rochelle – It was worth every single penny. We even have guests who have weddings of their own coming up and they loved the place so much they put it on their list of possibilities. It was really the perfect Wedding. Thank you so much Jack, James and Saray and everyone else who made our day absolutely perfect.

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.
