I have never been to a wedding with better food, and I'm not just saying that because it was ours. tee hee! Every single one of our guests RAVED and still rave about the food the night of our wedding. Everything went so smooth that my husband and I are still amazed.
There are a few things after the fact we had wished were a little different (for example, how someone wanted their steak cooked was never asked and during the cocktail hour, the raw bar was only refilled twice), but during the actual night we didn't notice these few things so it didn't really matter.
Overall, what an amazing venue, team and location to have. If you have this venue on your list of options, BOOK IT! They are so incredible to work with and did such an amazing job making our special day the best we could have ever imagined.
We had our ceremony and reception at the State Room in September. The entire day was perfect and the food was out of this world. Our guests kept telling use how unique each area of the venue was and how amazing the food was. Taste was able to accommodate a Mexican Taco buffet which our guests really enjoyed. And the guacamole station was a huge hit! Theresa was a fantastic wedding coordinator and made the process really easy. She responded to my emails quickly and made sure everything was perfect for the day of the wedding. An added bonus of getting married on a Friday was being able to set up and decorate the day before. Do not hesitate to book your wedding here!
During my venue hunt, I took a tour of The Stateroom and fell in LOVE! I walked into the cocktail area and wanted to party....immediately I knew this was where my wedding should be. Upon booking the day, Nicole was very informative and helpful with recommending hotels, transportation, photography and florist accommodations. After she left on maternity leave, Theresa was exceptional in taking over the role. As the days approached she deadlined all planning details making it easy and organized during the process. On wedding day, since all my decorations were DIY style she and her staff were most diligent in setting everything up exactly as my mother and I visioned, please keep in mind that it was not an easy task, and mother could not be there because she was needed for pictures prior to the ceremony....but the staff succeeded (applause).
Food was delicious! I hope someone I know has a wedding there so I can eat there again. We had a personal attendant bringing us food all during cocktail hour and during the reception. There was SO much and everything was sooo good, since my guests are the true critics its proven it was good because they have gushed over how great the food was and how masterful the staff services were. One guest even said they felt like they were treated like a king!!!
Seriously folks this is a wonderful place for a wedding, especially those who love LBI. In case you are not familiar this used to be "The Quarter Deck". I never went there , but a lot of my family did, and were extremely excited just for the nostalgic factor:) For others it's perfect for the traditional wedding with a modern twist!
I got married on 8/29/15 at the Mallard Island Yacht Club. Taste Catering was an amazing company to work with - they provided me with the wedding of my dreams and all of my guests LOVED the food!!! Their staff was incredible and so accommodating to me and my guests. LOVE them.
Danielle our wedding specialist could not have been more wonderful and helpful throughout the whole wedding planning process. ALWAYS SO responsive, helpful, and I feel like she's a part of my family now that our wedding day is over. I was not the least bit nervous on my wedding day because I knew that Danielle had everything under control and that everything would work out amazingly. She is THE BEST of the BEST at what she does.
Marcy, our Maitre D' was wonderful and was there for all of us throughout the entire night - from making sure the night went all according to plan to offering my dad and me ceremony advice when we had a question before walking down the aisle, to giving my new husband and me some mints before our first dance - she was totally on top of everything- she did an amazing job!
Our "day of" coordinator - Kelsey - was fantastic as well - SO kind and helpful throughout the entire day and made sure that my husband and I were very "well hydrated" throughout the night constantly bringing us drinks and letting us know what was happening next.
They gave me the wedding of my dreams, I would suggest them a million times over to anyone who asks!! Thank you to all of them.
We had our wedding at Mallard on August 14th and it was beyond perfect. Danielle and her team were so responsive throughout our entire planning process. They really helped us create a day that was unique to us. I was so relaxed the day of the wedding because I knew Danielle had taken care of everything. Our bridal attendant was also amazing and did a wonderful job of taking care of us and our extremely large and rowdy bridal party. From the service to the food, everything was amazing. We had so many compliments from our guests about everything! We could not have asked for a more perfect day :)
We used Taste Catering through The Stateroom in Ship Bottom for our wedding on August 14, 2015. The reviews we read couldn't even express how good the food really is until you try it! One of our favorite things about Taste Catering was that they held a tasting of our menu about 4-6 months before our wedding date. We got to sample the cocktail hour food and main entrees. Afterwards, we knew we made the right decision!
Our guests are still raving about the food served at our wedding saying, "it was the best food they ever had at a wedding." Some of our favorites were: the crab cakes, California BLTs, the brie station, and our dinner entrees! We highly recommend Taste Catering for your wedding or event!!!
Our wedding was Friday 8/7 at Mallard island Yacht Club. It was the most amazing event we could have imagined. Everything exceeded our expectations. For starters, Danielle and the entire Mallard staff was professional and beyond helpful. Danielle made the day run smoothly and left no detail unturned. Her knowledge of local vendors and recommendations were greatly appreciated and turned out to be excellent as we acted on many of them. Most importantly, Danielle was always available to provide assistance whenever needed. The staff seemed to be an extension of Danielle’s affability and responsiveness as they were helpful in every sense of the word. The food was prompt and the bar was always efficient. Every piece of food we tasted was amazing. The cocktail hour, salad, entrée, and desserts were all delicious. The feedback received by us and others about the food was of equally high praise. Equally importantly, the staff was super nice. The venue was more beautiful than we could have imagined. Seemingly every different faction of the people attending our wedding had an absolute blast. I would highly recommend Mallard Island Yacht Club and Taste catering to anyone! Thank-you for making our wedding day amazing.
We held my daughter's wedding at the Mallard Island Yacht Club that was catered by Taste Catering & I can't thank Danielle & the entire staff for making it a memorable day. The service from Danielle beginning on the first day we met & she gave us a tour to the day after the wedding when we waved goodbye was incredible, she & her team are friendly, flexible, responsive, service oriented & define the word professional. Every one of our guests that we heard from raved about how beautiful the venue was and the food especially the cocktail hour. Seeing my daughter's & new son's face after the wedding just reinforced that we made the right decision having our wedding here.
Our wedding was at Mallard Island Yacht Club on 7/31/15. Since then, we have received several emails, texts, and calls from friends and family who called it "the best wedding they have ever been to". Danielle and the staff were extremely responsive, attentive, and professional. During the planning process, I had so many questions, ideas, and concerns, and Danielle responded to each and every one promptly, and thoroughly...even on her days off! Her knowlegde of local and reliable vendors-from where to board our dog, to nannies for our flower girls and ring bearers - made our planning so much easier. Kelsey, our bridal attendant was extremely helpful and attentive. She did everything with a smile-no task was too big or too small. She even took the time to sew a ripped bridesmaid's dress before our walk down the aisle. So many of our guests raved about the food and the service-the mini ice cream cones were the biggest hit! Our wedding experience at Mallard was perfect. I only wish I could do it all again!
The food and flexibility in menu options that taste catering had were great. Everyone was easy to deal with and the food was excellent. I'm so happy we went to the tasting event before the wedding because we were so swamped on the day of our wedding we didn't get to spend as much time at the cocktail hour as we wanted. I really hope we get invited to a wedding catered by Taste soon because we definitely want to sample the food again.
The Stateroom on Long Beach Island was the perfect place to get married! The service, food, location, accessibility, and aesthetics were top of the line! You can not beat the price for the quality that you receive!
We worked with Theresa, who was incredibly helpful and easy to work with. She was very reliable. I truly felt I could rely on her to get the job done perfectly. The rest of the staff were also very friendly. The best attribute of this venue is that they only hold one event per day, so the entire place is yours for the day, which makes decorating very easy. However, the venue is so beautiful on its own that you really do not need to decorate that much. At the end of the night, the staff quickly cleaned everything up and left everything neatly in a pile, so there was minimal work for my husband and I to do. We opted for the courtyard ceremony and could not be happier with our decision. The courtyard is elegantly beautiful and offers complete privacy. There was also easy, hidden access for the DJ during the ceremony. Theresa handled everything the day of the wedding, so we were able to get ready with ease knowing that everything was being taken care of! Everything was perfect from start to finish!
My husband and I received numerous compliments about The Stateroom! We would love to go back and enjoy The Stateroom as guests in the future!
I can't even begin! The team was professional, amazing and worth every penny! Michelle and Marcie I literally was blown away with them! Everything I needed I got and they made our wedding day go incredibly smoothe! Danielle is awesome!!!!!!! Love everything! Book book book your wedding.
We used Taste Catering for our wedding at The Stateroom and the food was delicious! They were able to make a menu change for us to include some items that we really wanted at the cocktail hour. Our guests have not stopped raving about how great the food was! Guests have been especially complimentary of how great the steak was. A few of them said they're used to being served a bland "wedding steak" at wedding venues but the steak from our steak and lobster dinner was "outrageous."
Taste Catering was a pleasure to work with! The food was terrific. We have not heard any feedback that was not positive. Guests are still talking about the Filet!
The Taste Catering staff was professional and easy to work with. They adjusted to our needs and took our food allergies seriously.
Our wedding day food was perfect.
Taste catering was perfect! The food was amazing and everyone has been talking about it since the wedding. My husband and I made a point of sitting down to eat at the reception and it was delicious! Unlike other venues the Salmon and steak was a large piece that was cooked just right! We food went above and beyond our expectations and we couldn't have been happier!

Our wedding took place at Mallard Yacht Club on 6/12/15. From start to finish, the services provided by Taste Catering were exceptional. The food was served warm and was delicious. All of our guests have been raving about how much they enjoyed the passed hor d'oeuvres, cocktail hour stations and entrees. The service was impeccable. I would highly recommend Taste Catering to anyone looking for a professional catering service for a large event.
