    Overall Good Experience

    Due to Covid our wedding plans had to significantly change however Jason From Inn on the bay was very flexible & helpful. Overall we are very happy, the food was amazing, our view was beautiful & the suite was lovely. The only problem we had was with the bar. We were told the restaurant would close at 9pm however the bar would stay open for us and continue to serve it wouldnt be a problem, but when 9pm came around we were told it was last call. I explained to the banquet manager that we had a different arrangement but ultimately it didn鈥檛 change much. They gave us an additional round of drinks (minutes after the last drinks were given to us) then they began to take the decorations and linens off the tables and packed up. It was very rushed at the end. It would have been nice to enjoy the evening a little longer, you only get married once (hopefully).

    June Wedding by the Bay

    The staff here are true professionals they helped us bring our vision of a wedding near the water to life. They were easy to find and talk to. Very responsive whenever we had a question or concern no matter how small. The chef and kitchen staff were so accommodating of our dietary needs. Great food, great views and so nice to have everything you need in one place. The sunset was great and we'd highly recommend booking out the patio for your wedding.
