    Affordable location looking at water

    I haven't booked yet but i like what this place had to offer. It was looking at the water and could fit lot of people. They gave great and realistic feedback to help keep my cost down. I liked that the regular chair option wasn't chair covers.

    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!
