Great Experience in a Beautiful Venue!

We had our wedding in June 2022 at Captain Bill's in the Bayview house and overall had a wonderful experience. The staff and management staff exceeded our expectations for our wedding day and we were stunned when we walked into the room on our wedding day with the beauty of the room.
Overall we found Captain Bill's to be very reasonably priced for the beautiful space. The amount of food between the Cocktail Hour and Reception without any upgrades was staggering and far exceeded our guests' expectations. Captain Bill's also accommodated our desire to have two dock slips for the wedding for those arriving via boat and to "duet" the first and second course.
During COVID, we postponed our wedding and Captain Bill's was very understanding of our need to postpone, not introducing any charges or restrictions when the decision was made. Throughout the planning of the setup/decor of the Bayview house, we did run into some lack of flexibility in what we were allowed to do as far as set-up of the room, what type of decor we could rent and what was allowed to be changed. Ultimately, when the day approached Captain Bill's was more flexible that they initially indicated they would be about some decor rentals which was very much appreciated. However, I would recommend ensuring what you can/cannot do in writing if it is important to you to have the room set-up a certain way, or more importantly, if you want to bring in rented equipment, dishware, etc. We did not have issues on the day of however, as the staff was incredibly accommodating and understanding.
Our only other note for improvement is in the communication of set-up/access to the wedding venue. We were told that there were no other events in the Bayview house the entire day, but that turned out not to be true. This ended up not being an issue as our wedding planner adjusted our setup timeline and Captain Bill's was incredibly quick at turning the room, but this was a minor obstacle where communication could have ben improved.
Overall, we had a fantastic experience and highly recommend. We looked at over 20 venues across Long Island and for the price, quality of food/service, and beauty of the Bayview House it was clear we made the right decision for our wedding day. Special thanks to Chloe and her team for making the wedding of our dreams come true!
