Barbara from A1A Ale Works facilitated our Wedding Reception at the Bayview Room. We are absolutely overjoyed at the planning, service and execution of our special day!! Barbara worked tirelessly to ensure the menu, table design, room setup, serving staff, and decor reflected everything we wanted. We could not have been more pleased. In researching vendors in the St. Augustine area I often found contact representatives were difficulty to reach or slow with responses. Barbara's prompt responses (via email or phone), positive energy, and endless patience were a true gift in our wedding planning and on our wedding day. The service was fantastic and the food was excellent!! In addition, the Bayview room was very flexible with the bar service options, pricing was very competitive, and the menu was tailored to fit our needs perfectly. The space is gorgeous too-it is a Nationally registered historic building (built 1888) with exposed brick walls, crystal chandeliers, soaring ceilings, balcony access with ornamental iron work, and a fantastic view of the Bridge of Lions. Barbara and the Bayview Room really delivered a flawless wedding reception experience in every way-service, food, cost, decor, location, flexibility and quality.

We knew we were looking for a venue that was able to accommodate an intimate reception and from the moment we met Barbara we knew we had found our space! She has been a complete dream to work with - professional, kind, caring and super responsive and willing to roll with last minute changes! We had a wonderful wedding and we have received so many compliments from our guests that it was one of the best weddings they ever attended and we know that we owe it to Barbara and her team! Thank you for making our day so very special and for being absolutely outstanding to work with! I would recommend this venue, Barbara and all her staff to anyone looking for a venue in St. Augustine!

I had my reception at the Bayview Room all the staff was great and really attentive. My guest won't stop talking about how great the food was specially the tortellini and the mixed vegetables. Barbara was also great during the whole planning process always available to answer any questions I had.
I was so happy how everything turned out not to mention the room it self it's beautiful. We also rented out the balcony which has an amazing view of the bridge of lions and downtown St. Augustine
This venue offers the below options which may impact pricing:
