The old field club was the perfect venue for our wedding! The staff was such a pleasure to work with. I couldn't have asked for a better planning process Ben is the best! He is easy going and attentive. They perfectly accommodated the 134 guests that we had. Our guests are raving how good the food was! They had no issues helping me achieve the day that I dreamed of and allowing me to personalize the menu and the beer selection.
My husband and I were married on 8/24/13... The Old Field Club was the first and only venue we looked at. I love elegant, beautiful things and loath the typical Long Island gaud... so the minute we walked into OFC I had no doubt this was the absolutely perfect place, people and setting.
It has a simple, beautiful elegance and air about it that, which to me is the epitome of North Shore Long Island, and as another reviewer mentioned, allows the bride to do anything visually... I choose endless candlelight and flowers through out the room, as the night wore on it was just more and more stunning.
We had about 80 people, the room was perfect... cocktail hour on the deck was a wonderful way to start the evening watching the sun go down... gorgeous.
Dennis the manager was extremely down to earth, honest and helpful... I enjoy people who don't kiss my ass for a sale and can tell me directly how we can get things done... and this was Dennis... he was extremely kind, well informed and accommodating and I adored his demeanor. We signed the contract that very day. Ben took over from there and took care of every detail I could dream up or worry about over the next six months, he answered every email (many!) within 24 hours, if not sooner and was patient, calming and reassuring all throughout... A girl needs a calm voice when planning her wedding! Ben was it, and a real sweetie to boot. He took care of every single detail, down to polishing the cake stand for me (because I am neurotic enough to have asked him to do this). My napkins were folded exactly as I wanted, the candles displayed perfectly... the vision I created in my mind came to fruition and my day was perfect. Thank you Ben and Dennis for all your attention to detail, patience and kindness throughout. And Dennis, thank you for your additional suggestions on the candles, everything was perfect and some of the most beautiful pictures I have are because of your candle suggestions!
I can't say enough about Old Field, not only is it the most gorgeous place, but the food and service was amazing. We did our cake through their suggested vendor, La Bon and it was amazing!
I loved the venue so much we are currently considering it for my daughters Sweet 16... :)
If you are looking for a cookie cutter caterer, this is NOT it. But if you are looking for gorgeous wedding day bliss... this is the place.
Thank you Dennis and Ben for doing everything you could to make it perfect!

I was married at Old Field Club on 10/6/13. I searched everywhere for a venue like OFC on Long Island, something without gaudy carpeting, etc. It is a beautiful venue, gorgeous fireplace, lighting and right on the water. The staff is lovely and make sure to take care of you on your big day. We were to get married outside by the water but unfortunately it was rainy, the staff was quick and made sure the ceremony was set up inside. It ended up looking great as if it was meant to be there all along. Everyone is still talking about the amazing food!
I got married a few weeks ago at The Old Field Club, and it was everything I could have wanted from a wedding venue and more! My guests (most of whom are from Chicago) were all blown away at how beautiful the venue was. The cocktail hour out on the back deck looking over the water was perfect! I almost wish our cocktail hour could have lasted for two or three hours; that's how awesome it was. The ballroom is stunning, and everything went according to plan. Ben, the maitre de, was perfect. He was so helpful and had everything running smoothly all night long. I cannot recommend the Old Field Club enough! The only negative I can see (which luckily wasn't a negative for me!) is that the main ballroom can get a little cramped. They say the max is 175 people. We wound up having 140, and it was probably the most I would have wanted there. If you're planning on around this number of people, you will 100% not regret having your wedding at the Old Field Club. It literally was the best night of my life.
As a local Setauket girl, the Old Field Club was simply the perfect choice in venue. I almost don't want anyone not from around here to find out about it because it truly is a little slice of heaven down there on the creek. From the awesome food to the beautiful view to the amazing team working the events and helping plan them, everything was on point and wonderful. They were on board with everything we wanted to do and every one of our guests said it was the BEST wedding ever...and it was!
Once I started looking at wedding venues on Long Island, I quickly realized how hard it was going to be to find one that felt like 'us' or who we are as a couple. I was thrown off by many other venues - the big [usually dark] catering halls with stained old carpet, acoustic ceilings and mirrored walls as far as the eye can see. I was thrown off by the many MANY MANY over the top cocktail displays and ice sculptures I was seeing on my search. After touring SO many venues, walking into the Old Field Club was truly a breath of fresh air! There was not one gilded cherub or fluted plaster column to be found - FINALLY! The clean architecture and history of the building with it's tall pitched ceiling, chandeliers, beams - and the gorgeous mantle, I knew we would fit right in and we would be happy whether we were to hold the ceremony outside near the water [weather permitting] or in front of the monumental mantle. The simple decor makes it MUCH easier for you to personalize with your own decor. The food was Outstanding - SO many guests were raving. The staff was accommodating and were able to execute my incredibly detailed decor scheme - making our wedding day perfect. If you are looking for a beautiful venue without all of the tacky, outdated and over the top bells and whistles - look no further!
What a beautiful wedding Old Field Club gave us! I'm pretty sure no one even knew it was pouring rain outside! Ben the Maitre'd went above and beyond. From setting up my decorations better than I could've imagined and helping us be where we needed to be throughout the night. Also, every single one of my guests raved about the food. Great place! I hope my friends have their weddings there so I can enjoy it again!
I fell in love with this venue as soon as I walked inside. The staff and food was amazing. I would like to thank Ben for making everything perfect for my wedding day! You were on top of everything and made it very easy to breath. Everything came out exactly how pictured it. Thank you!
My husband and I got married here at the end of August. It was the only place we looked at because I absolutely fell in love with the venue. The beautiful reception room (with those unique high vaulted ceilings!) and lovely views for our outside ceremony were everything that we were looking for...and that's before I even knew the high level of service that we would receive. From the tasting to the Big Day, Old Field Club exceeded all of our expectations. Ben was our maitre'd and he absolutely took care of us the entire night and couldn't have been sweeter. The staff was amazing and helpful (even making another centerpiece for me because I didn't order enough!) and always kept our drinks full! All of our guests couldn't say enough about the delicious food and how beautiful everything was. The bar being right on the dance floor was great, because it kept all the guests together and encouraged people to dance that wouldn't have otherwise!
I couldn't have imagined getting married anywhere else, and there's nothing that I would ever have changed. Old Field is a real GEM and I am so glad I found it!!
We loved the venue. The food and site were amazing. Our only small complaint was that the air conditioning did not keep the room uniformly cool. The dinner room was cool, but the dance floor was very warm. Our party dealt with it by spilling over to the porch. Overall Id recommend the site highly!
This place was georgeous!!! It gave us that romantic feeling which was exactly what we were looking for. It started to rain right before my ceremony which was outside...brought everything in and my ceremony was beautiful!! More then we could have asked for.
Everything was amazing! They did everything I asked. I was a little surprised that the maitre D's first words when she helped me out of the limo were "a lot of cleavage", inappropriate! Some if the bridesmaids remarked that they were not happy with some things she said. My husband and I attended cocktail hour and did not stay in the bridal suite so there weren't any cocktails or hors d'ouvres served in there which the wedding party was disappointed about they only brought some in when the groomsmen asked for food and drinks for the flowergirls and ring bearers. Last, they need a bridal attendant!! Other then those small things everything was great, food, drinks, and service!
We had our wedding at the Old Field Club a few weeks ago, and everything was perfect. The venue was gorgeous and the staff were all incredibly nice and helpful. We could not imagine a more beautiful place to get married. If you are looking for simple elegance and a location right on the water, there is no place better!
My wedding was this past May at The Old Field Club. I wanted something different then the standard Long Island Catering Hall and OFC more then delivered.
The Grounds: OFC is on the water and the grounds are stunning. It offers a relaxed but elegant backdrop for your wedding. The cocktail hour is inside/outside. The Reception is held in the main room with a magificant fireplace, vaulted ceilings and beautiful large windows with views to the water.
Food: The food was NOT your typical wedding food. The food was actually REALLY REALLY good. They were very accomodating and worked with us on our menu and helped us stay within our budget while getting all of our must haves.
Drinks: They created a signature drink for our wedding day and had all of the top shelf spirits available for guests.
Service: The cook is amazing and the wait staff was amazing and the bartenders knew how to make excellent drinks!
I absoluetley loved The Old Field Club and can't picture having my wedding anywhere else.
We wanted a venue with a waterfront and outside ceremony and cocktail area space, that was a bit simpler than most venues I had seen. Old Field Club was great for us; the space is simple and classic, nothing is over the top but all our guests were impressed with the space, food and service. Its a small staff, so at times it may be difficult to get a quick response from them, but in the end everything was taken care of and done well.
Our wedding was simply amazing!! We feel in love with the Old Field Club the moment we stepped inside. It was exactly what we were looking for, the grounds are beautiful and the main room is breathtaking. It is not a typical catering hall in more ways than one; they do not push all these unneeded extras on you. Matt and Mary were easy to work with they always responded to my emails and phone calls. I couldn't ask for better people to work with, they made our day perfect. Last but not least the food; it was amazing!! I've never had food at a wedding that tasted so good, and I’m not just saying that because it was my wedding. They food was so flavorful and cooked to perfection! It really was everything we dreamed it would be. I hope one of our friends gets married there so we can go back!
FROM THE VERY BEGINNING IT WAS A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE. EVERYONE OF THE STAFF MEMEBERS WERE SO HELPFUL WITH THE PLANNING AND SETTING UP, NEVER HAD A PROBLEM WHEN I CAME BY TO ASK QUESTIONS OR EVEN JUST TO LOOK AROUND. THE DAY OF THE WEDDING WAS ABSOLUTLEY AMAZING, EVERYONE WAS SO HELPFUL AND THEY DECORATED THE HALL EXCACTLY THE WAY I WANTED AND IT LOOKED AMAZING!!! THIS TRULY WAS THE BEST PLACE TO WORK WITH, NOT ONE PROBLEM THE ENTIRE DAY.
The Old Field Club was the perfect venue for a intimate wedding. Our guests are still talking about how beautiful the atmosphere was and how great the food was. The staff was wonderful, anything I needed they were on it. The only downside was the manager Matt never directly returns phone calls - When we booked with him we were told we could speak with him with any questions - each time we had a question we got a voicemail and someone other than Matt would return our call. Other than that I'd say it was wonderful.
I didn't want the average, typical Long Island wedding hall...and OFC is absolutely not average. The food is amazing, the service is impeccable and the grounds and place itself is absolutely beautiful. It was my dream place, and dream wedding. The only complaint I have, is that we did not get to taste one thing from cocktail hour. Usually the place will make a plate for the bride and groom so that they can taste everything. Maybe we were supposed to ask, not sure. We also had no idea when our cake was served to us, and therefore never ate it!
Again, things that can be fixed as long as you ask..other than that, not a complaint at all! OFC is very easy to work with and a true gem on Long Island for your wedding!!
The old field club is pure elegance. I could not thank them enough for all they did prior to our wedding with thanks to hurricane irene! You would have never known they had been under 3 feet of water and had no electric the day before our wedding. Thankf old field for doing such an amazing job!
