The most magical place
We spent the happiest day of our lives at the Seafood Shack on February 20, 2021. Constance Pring, the venue coordinator, was an absolute saint. For months she worked with us and helped our dream become a reality. She was so accommodating and patient with us. I originally planned our wedding before daylight savings. I planned for the ceremony to start at 6 pm without realizing that the sun sets at 6:30. Just a month before our wedding, I asked Constance if we could move the wedding up an hour and she was more than pleased to help with that request. I also ran into Constance while getting my nails done (what are the odds?!) a few days before my wedding and we talked the whole time about planning the wedding. I felt bad talking business while she was out of work and trying to relax but she made me feel like i wasn’t a burden at all! To me, that was so sweet and felt like she truly cared. My mother also spoke with Constance on many occasions and I am so appreciative of Constance keeping my mother in the loop. During our wedding, Constance kept us on a timeline that made everything run so smoothly. She was there every step of the way and we would not have had it any other way. She was also there when we took photos on the docks to help move stuff out of the background and make sure we get the perfect photos. Our wedding would not have been what it was without her. We planned a small intimate wedding of about 30 people. We had our ceremony in the Hunters Point room and our reception in the Neptune Room. Initially, we thought we could go without a DJ. After one of our final walk throughs, Constance suggested we hire a DJ because of how much smoother and less stressful it would be for us. We agreed and are so happy we did. She found us a DJ about a month before our wedding and without him, it would have been complete chaos. Constance also helped with other suggestions that made everything fit perfectly into place. She knew we wanted a nautical wedding and the rooms set ups did not disappoint. The decor they already had at the Seafood Shack felt like we were in an underwater palace. Our rooms also had the most spectacular views of the ocean and the Cortez bridge. The guests drooled over the appetizers and our food was hot and absolutely delicious. I highly recommend the blackened snapper. There was not one complaint. George was our bartender, along with Constance, and waiter and he was so patient with us. When I say it was a perfect day, I mean it really was a perfect day. Not one thing went wrong. To this day, the guests that were at our wedding still rave about how beautiful and fun it was. If you are looking for a magical venue, this is it.Sent on 03/15/2021

A dream come true
I don't even know where to begin - the Neptune Room was the best decision we made to have our wedding reception!!! It's spacious, adorable, has the best views of the water and is affordable. Our guests couldn't stop raving about how great the food and desserts were. Everything was magical and the best part was our coordinator BRANDY! I don't have enough great things to say about her. She made my vision come to life and for that I am forever grateful. If you are looking for an amazing experience, book the Neptune Room! Thank you Brandy and team for being so kind, so patient so talented and making our dream come true! xoSent on 10/31/2019
We absolutely love working with The Seafood Shack. Such a great venue, too.
The Neptune Room is amazing. It has gorgeous views, an unheard of guest capacity, great food and unique touches and décor that make it a really special place. Event Manager, Brandy, is professional, knowledgeable and a true lifesaver! Brandy and the Neptune Room opened its doors for a rained out beach wedding and gave us a really perfect setting for the event. They saved the day and I cannot say enough good things about the space and the staff. Having worked at almost every venue in the area, I can honestly say there is nothing like it!
