Harbor point is a very beautiful place- very classic cape cod. However- please, please really consider if you want to hold your reception here! I worked with Rachel and although she was great both times we went for tastings and even via the phone/text. There were times where either it took her quite a while to get back to me and/or she never got back to me. That I could overlook if it wasn’t for all that happened the day of the wedding. I was promised so much (wait staff, cocktails/food for my wedding party while we waited to be announced, and um food before 10:00pm). We were promised two bars but the second bar was closed due to “4 staff members” who called out. I’m very suspicious of this now as I have heard from people in the area that H.P is notorious for doing this (would have been good to know WAY back when). We were never served cocktails/food while we waited to be announced. Rachel was acting as waitress and bartender. The gentlemen who did work as a bartender for the majority of the time while Rachel was running around- had to be told how to make drinks (so much for our signature cocktails). Rachel even said he wasn’t really a true bartender. Our reception started at 6pm and MANY guests did not eat until 10pm. One of the waitresses it turns out was Rachel’s daughter. She was the one that had been yelled out, ran by me in tears and then my guests collected money to give to her because they felt so bad. The other one was very rude “who ordered what?!” They brought out tons of swordfish to a table of 10 where only 1 person ordered swordfish and tried to persuade the guests to change their order. Then she nearly spilled food on several of my guests (yes, that can happen when you start slamming down plates) without any apologies. Rachel’s response- “your guests were very rude!” Funny you should say that- I told the story in front of the hotel manager that hosted 80 of my guests and she said they were “one of the nicest groups” she had worked with.

Harbor Point provided the view, the food, and the party we wanted for our wedding. A few things that I wish were different is the way one of the owners handles business (he doesn't talk to anyone or introduce himself) and they are very set in their ways and not very flexible when it comes to little things. Overall, I had a beautiful wedding in Cape Cod with a beautiful view and delicious food so I would still recommend Harbor Point. If you are looking for a beautiful Cape Cod wedding on a budget then Harbor Point is the place.

We could not be more thrilled with Harbor Point! The owner was extremely helpful throughout the entire planning time and wedding day. We felt that we got a great deal on the stations dinner we served to our 150 guests. The location is gorgeous- we loved that our guests got to take in a sunset view over cape cod bay! We would HIGHLY reccomend this venue to our engaged friends!

This restaurant was absolutely amazing for the money. We only spend $33.00 per meal and there was no room rental fee. This was by far the cheapest, and most beautiful place. It is right on the Barnstable Harbor, and you can see the lighthouse on the beach. We took pictures on the beach below which was also exquisite. The assortment of food was remarkable, and also the quantity and quality.

When we first walked into this restaurant, my (now) husband and I knew this was the place for our reception. It was warm and comfortable and was exactly what we were looking for. We didn't want just your typical cookie cutter type reception.. you won't find that here. The wedding coordinator, Bob, was pretty fantasic. I called him many times to go over the menu and to have specific wine on each tables, and he did everything that we had talked about. He was very helpful with many suggestions and ideas, and very easy to work with. The food was delicious. We chose to have "stations". Every one of our guests were very happy to choose what and how much they wanted. At the end of the evening we treated our guests to a pizza party as well! As full as everyone said they were, there wasn't one slice left to be found!! Last but certainly not least... the VIEW!!! It is what sealed the deal for us...(besides the really resonable prices!!). The restaurant over looks Barnstable bay onto Sandy Neck village... it really was so beautiful. All in all we had an AMAZING night! We plan on coming for dinner here on our anniversary for years to come! We would definitely reccomend this venue to any bride to be out who is looking for something unique and a true hidden gem!
(Sidenote: I did't give this place a full 5 stars only because there was not a really geat location to hold our ceremony there. With 140 guests, I did not feel like there was enough room out on the pool deck to seat everyone... instead we married at a local church in Sandwich about 20 minutes away).
