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

I had the wedding of my dreams at Glen Island Harbour! A very special thank you to Billy.

Feedback from my guests include:
“Best food I have ever had at a wedding or a restaurant”
“They offered so much food, we were already stuffed by the cocktail hour”
“All of the food was delicious”
“Magnificent water views”
“Breathtaking, so beautiful”

Our bridal attendant, Lissette was incredible! The dress on one of my bridesmaids was so tight it ripped before the ceremony. Lissette immediately got sewing supplies and fixed the rip on this complicated dress!

Personal thank you to Billy, who treated me like family. The entire staff was very professional and attentive from our first visit to the very end of the wedding day.

We recently got married at the GIHC and could not have had a better experience. From the start, the location of the venue is extremely convenient, and close to all major roadways in New Rochelle. Our guests did not have any trouble finding Glen Island Park. Being right on the water also served as an incredibly serene and beautiful backdrop for our wedding. We got married on a chilly Sunday in March, but didn't have to worry as our ceremony took place in the gorgeous chapel inside the venue. It was quickly and efficiently followed by an amazing cocktail hour with a massive spread of food that all our guests raved about and could not believe the quality of food as well as the gorgeous views of the Long Island Sound. The staff were extremely professional and thoughtful, everyone was truly impressed with their interactions with the Glen Island team. I can personally attest to Rodney, my banquet manager, who was such a support to me during my long planning period of nearly 18 months. We exchanged countless emails, and he was there for me every step of the way from our first meeting, then our tasting, up until the final week, and even day after the wedding. I truly lucked out with him as my point person from the start. Our captain John, was a really great guy who was not only very genuinely nice and relaxed, and even funny, but also very good at his job. He kept us on track and always informed us of our schedule and timing on the day of the wedding. He also made sure everything was set up according to our requests, and he was always quick to troubleshoot any issues that came up last minute. My bridal attendant, Alyssa, was very helpful as well. She constantly checked in on us to make sure we were eating, and anticipated any request or need that I could have had. Everyone behind the scenes made this wedding an absolute dream! They worked like ninjas, completely unassuming, meanwhile keeping every in order and moving smoothly. GIHC was perfect in every way!

I had my wedding at Glen Island in November 2014 and couldn't be more happy! From booking the venue with Rocco until the final second we left the night of our wedding was spectacular. The food was outrageous as well as the service. My husband and I would highly recommend Glen island for any function that you are looking for. The Terrace room with the windows is stunning! Such a beautiful setting!

Rodney, the event manager, was courteous and professional throughout the whole process. He was very easy to work with. John was our maitre'd and he made sure our whole process went smoothly, a very awesome and easy going guy. Our Bridal Attendant Alicia was simply amazing. She made sure my wife had everything she needed, was available for us the whole night. Even while we were busy dancing the night away, I was told she was in the bridal suite cleaning up after us. Alicia is simply the nicest and hardest working person we have ever encounter. In general, can't stop raving about their service in general.

Th Glen Island Harbour Club provided us with the most perfect wedding we could have imagined. The wedding chapel set the tone, absolutely spectacular. The wedding, according to our guests was
'over the top" and beyond, "unbelievably lush and elegant", "we thought of everything" and comments of that ilk. The fact is it is exactly what we expected and even more and our expectations were very, very high.
Unbelievables include:
the view,
the chapel,
the line-up of servers serving varied martini's on the way in to the cocktail hour,
the cocktail hour of all cocktail hours,
the food for the sit down dinner,
the flawless and abundant service,
the coffee, dessert and liquor bar,
the special surprise as our guests left the venue (I'll keep that my secret :) )
Thank you Rocco, the best wedding coordinator ever. The best of the best.
Lisette the bridal attendent and John, the Maitre'd.

Glen island's staff were all very professional and courteous- our banquet manager Jack was always very responsive to our questions and ideas and outlined our schedule for us. Our maître-d John coordinated well with our DJ to keep the party going fluidly with no hiccups. We loved our bridal attendant Andrea- she thought of everything we could want, she was always around when we needed her and she kept us comfortable.

Overall we loved our wedding at glen island- from the food to the cake and Viennese dessert spread to the decor of the hall. All of our guests said our wedding was the best they've ever attended. Thanks glen island!

We were married at the Glen Island Harbour Club on September 12, 2014 and our wedding was perfect from start to finish. We worked with Rocco and he was truly amazing. He answered all my questions and provided the absolute best service. To this day, I am still getting compliments about the food, the attention to detail and the impeccable service. We highly recommend the Glen Island Harbour Club and I hope we get invited to a wedding there in the future so I can enjoy the experience of being a guest at this fabulous venue. Thank you Glen Island Harbour Club. We could not have asked for a better wedding.
