Beautiful, historic building, gorgeous views of the water, and a lovely outdoor slate patio, which we would have used for our ceremony had it not rained. The great thing was that there were three areas for ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception, and there is definitely enough room for a Plan B and Plan C when it rains and the ceremony can't be outside. There is a tented deck facing the Long Island Sound, where the ceremony and/or cocktail hour can be if the weather is a little unpleasant. If it's storming like mad, there's enough room for it all to be inside without feeling crowded. The food here is PHENOMENAL, they are willing to go off of their sample menu offerings if you ask for something different, and the amount of dessert offerings far exceeded our expectations. Sheldon is the banquet manager, and he does a great job coordinating set-up and problem-solving last minute hiccups. There is a bridal suite upstairs for the ladies to get ready. The men got ready by the bar. Can't wait to see our photos, and I'm sure they will look stunning with MBYC as the backdrop.

To be honest, I don't even know where to begin on praising this venue (where we held both our ceremony and our reception on September 14th).
First of all, I will say that I was probably as calm as I was throughout my entire wedding experience because of the staff at Mamaroneck Beach and Yacht club. Sheldon, the director of banquets, is the most supportive, helpful, and brilliant individual I worked with throughout the year and half of planning. On the day of, he ensured that every little detail and request was done to perfection and that we were happy. When speaking with him, you can just tell he knows what he is talking about and has years of experience in giving brides and grooms the most amazing wedding day that anyone could imagine.
The entire staff was amazing, providing impeccable service. Prior to the wedding, we worked with Luaenn who handles all billing and most communications. One of the sweetest and most accommodating people you'll ever meet. My bridal attendant, Julie, was absolutely phenomenal as well and kept my husband and I very well taken care of without being too intrusive. To this day my husband continues to talk about Sheldon, Julie, and the unbeatable service from all of the service providers.
Moreover, all of our guests were blown away by the service of the staff, as well as the amazing location. I lost count of how many told us it was the best wedding they had ever been to, that the venue was "to die for," that the staff was soo attentive, accommodating, and friendly, and that everything from the view, to the food, to the service was absolutely phenomenal.
This venue has everything anyone could every want... Perfect architecture and locations for photos (beach, gazebo, docks, grassy hills, amazing building stonework, etc.), the most delicious food cooked to your specifications, and of course, the best service anyone could every want.
I absolutely recommend booking this venue for any events that you have. It is worth every penny, if not more...

My husband and I celebrated our wedding reception at the Mamaroneck Beach & Yacht Club on June 8th and could not be any happier. We were worried when a new catering director took over as our wedding approached but Alain handled everything exactly as we wanted. He even had a wedding cake made to our exact specifications! The cocktail hour on the deck was absolutely beautiful and packed with food. We've received lots of compliments from our guests that it was the best cocktail hour and the nicest venue they had ever been to. Alain also accomodated us by providing a third entree selection for our guests to choose from. The food was absolutely delicious and fresh. The viennese hour and espresso bar were also big hits!
Sheldon pulled out all the stops for us leading up to and the day of the wedding. He checked in to make sure we were happy all night (and ensure Bob kept his jacket on for pictures)! He also suggested adding a watermelon martini in addition to our mojito signature drink to go with our wedding colors of pink and green.
Jane, the bridal attendant is a saint! She was beyond helpful without being pushy at all. She always appeared at the perfect time, just when I needed her! She was able to "repair" my ripped veil, fix my hair updo and ensure that I had all of the food I wanted throughout the night. The staff also set up the tables beautifully with our menus and favors in addition to the placecard holders I had provided. I'm a bit of a control freak so I was nervous to leave all of these details in someone else's hands but everything was done perfectly. I was also extremely pleased by the level of professionalism and pleasure with which the entire staff dealt with me and my guests. It is one thing to do an impressive job and it is another to do it happily.
I would recommend the yacht club to anyone looking for a stunning venue with unbeatable cuisine and impeccable service.
