Wonderful with COVID-19 Changing Plans!
Although I can't exactly write this review about hosting our reception at the Atlantic Grill like we had planned, I have nothing but good things to say about how Caitlyn handled everything! Caitlyn was so easy to work with, and was understanding of how difficult it was to plan a wedding in the midst of a pandemic. We eventually decided to postpone our reception to next year, but never felt pressured from Caitlyn to make that decision. We ended up having dinner, just the two of us, after our ceremony (in our wedding attire of course!), and everything was absolutely delicious! We're scheduled to have our reception there next year, and can't wait to see how it all turns out!Sent on 08/10/2020

Amazing Venue & Service!
We choose to have our rehearsal dinner at the Atlantic Grill. We could not have been happier with this decision. Caitlyn was incredible to work with! She was organized, flexible and kind. She brought our vision to life and made the atmosphere for our rehearsal dinner that much more special. Our guests are still raving about how delicious the food was and how incredible the space was. A few are planning to go back to the restaurant for dinner who had never been before that night! The night was perfect!Sent on 09/05/2019
The Atlantic Grill's reply:Thank you so much Gabrielle! I am so glad that you and your guests enjoyed your meals and got your fabulous wedding weekend off to a great start! Please let me know if you two are coming into the restaurant so I can come say hi! :)

Memorable Rehearsal Dinner
We hosted our rehearsal dinner and welcome cocktail hour at the Atlantic Grill in August. We could not have been happier with this decision. Caitlyn was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was communicative, organized, and accommodating from day one. Planning with her was a breeze and she handled the day of with ease. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was excellent! I personally still think about the pot de creme. I also appreciated that great care was taken for a few serious dietary restrictions we had in the group. I highly recommend The Atlantic Grill and Caitlyn Hassett. Thank you for helping us kick off our wedding weekend!Sent on 10/09/2019
The Atlantic Grill's reply:Thank you so much Micho! It was such a pleasure working with you and I am so thrilled to hear you had a great time. Congratulations and please come visit in the restaurant some time soon! :)
