Venue was very nice, clean, and accessible the day of our reception. Sofia's did the catering and the food was amazing! Ballroom area was set up beautifully. Had 90 people in attendance and that was a great size for the space. Parking was fine with utilizing tokens from the ymca across the street plus on street parking close by. Also had a shuttle to hotel downtown.

We truly LOVED our venue. It was even better in person than in pictures, and both indoors and outdoors were lovely. It was exactly what I was looking for. The ballroom made a gorgeous, elegant location for our reception, and the garden and rooms downstairs were perfect for our intimate ceremony and cocktail hour.

Not having someone on site makes things a little more complicated, as I unfortunately learned when our caterer didn't show up when expected and I was stuck waiting outside the day of our wedding. Fortunately as soon as I let Dana (the coordinator from Overlook) know, she came as soon as she could get there and let us into the building. Just make sure you communicate in advance and everything will go smoothly.

The Civic Club of Harrisburg is a lovely venue. Situated right on the river and surrounded by beautiful gardens. The river view is a great advantage of this space, not to mention all the light that comes in through large windows in the main room upstairs. It is a perfect spot for a wedding celebration. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Dana is sure to help you plan your event and make a perfect celebration!

What a beautiful venue ( inside and outside! ) We have done many beautiful weddings and receptions at the Civic Club.....a great place along the beautiful Susquehanna River!

The Overlook Mansion is a wonderful place to have your event, whether it be a Rehearsal dinner, Wedding or Wedding Reception. Looking out over the beautiful Susquehanna River there is so much space to gaze out and watch the sunset. I highly recommend Overlook Mansion.

Charming venue at a prime downtown waterfront location. We are so excited to see Kevin bring this venue to a whole new level!!

That's It! Wedding Concepts loves having the opportunity to work with Clients at "Overlook!" It is a true privilege! The history of this lovely treasure is such a perfect setting for Weddings! It was originally built by William R. Fleming for his wife and a plaque dedicating Overlook to her is above the fireplace. Does it get any more romantic than that?
