    Absolutely Excellent

    I have had my Wedding Reception, My mothers Celebration of Life, and My High School Reunion at this Venue! As you can tell I keep returning because of many factors. The Location is top notch, the Ease in Coordinating and the impeccable service are why. Vicki Schones is professional and wonderful to work with and is a great leader when you require a much needed opinion!
    Love Harborside Grand Ballroom!

    Fun wedding!

    Very professional in planning and explaining how a wedding event would operate. Helpful in answering questions and/or concerns. Has a good referral list of other people needed for the event, if needed (ex. A wedding day coordinator). Very friendly and knowledgeable. Beautiful room with view. We had a wonderful and fun experience all around!
