Gorgeous Newport harbor venue that is also incredibly affordable.
Harborside Grand Ballroom is a great venue for any occasion—they've got the view, the amenities, and the hospitality. We have been there more than a handful of times, and the experience only gets better. Endorsed completely!
With their million dollar views and their rich history, the Harborside is truly a unique and wonderful venue for a wedding. Karen and Vicki and their staff are very experienced, knowledgeable, friendly and kind. Chef Friend is amazing too. You simply can't go wrong with this venue. Fantastic every single time!
