The Ram's Head Inn is a perfect wedding venue. Their food is excellent, the grounds are beautiful, and they go the extra mile to ensure that it is a wonderful experience.Sent on 11/27/2013

Rams Head Inn is a lovely inn on the water with four working fireplaces, which made my winter wedding reception warm and welcoming. Linda Eklund (owner) was very helpful to me in planning the event; she also provided me with a list of vendors (such as the DJ). Without her experience guiding me, it would have been very difficult to plan a wedding from afar...especially one that took place 6 weeks after the first phone call! The food was excellent, the ambience was very cozy and the rooms were the perfect size for my wedding (110 guests). It was convenient that the inn has about 20 bedrooms so that many of my guests did not have to drive someplace else after the reception. They also set up a nice brunch the next morning. It was a great event!Sent on 01/12/2015

Brian and his family have been dining at the Rams Head for years. As we were planning we wanted to ensure that the place we were married meant something to us and that it wasnt just because we thought it was pretty The Rams Head fit the bill. It just so happened to also have a beautiful Great Gatsby feel as well as an expansive lawn and an area over looking the water from which to have our ceremony. For an Irish wedding, it couldnt have been more perfect!Sent on 06/26/2009
Linda and her staff did an amazing job making sure that our guests had a great experience. We didnt technically have a tasting as we knew the food would be great. We had A LOT of food (raw bar, sushi, crudités, about 10 different hor deourves from Kobe beef skewers to caviar to tuna tartar , a plated salad, 4 entrée stations with duck, lamb, t-bone steak, and lobster, sides, after-dinner cheese course with Port and Limoncello, and cookies, milk, and water as guests departed.). The presentation was amazing and people couldnt stop eating! We also had a champagne tower (using the old school glasses) that they put outside so guests could walk up the hill after the ceremony and celebrate.
Linda also went above and beyond when getting Guinness for us. We had requested it be on tap and there was an issue in the tap/keg set up so she had someone come out and install it on their main tap. So, know they offer Guinness and were pretty darn proud to be the reason why its now available on Shelter Island!
The only reason I rated it as a middle "value for cost" is that it is an expensive venue. We thought it was worth every penny for our decadent reception but I wouldn't say this is a place for a budget conscious couple...

The Ram's Head is the perfect location for a Shelter Island Wedding - It is a beautiful setting, and the property is so nice with Adirondack Chairs and Hammocks with perfect views of the sunset over the rolling lawns. Guests who stay at the Inn can enjoy the Kayaks/ Paddle Boards and they also have breakfast which is a plus. We had our ceremony on the property as well as the reception. The one issue we found was that while trying to coordinate details of our wedding, the Ram's Head wasn't as responsive as we had hoped. But, none the less, this truly was a unique, charming setting for a wedding :)Sent on 11/18/2014
