When I first began planning my wedding I was searching in the Rochester area since half of the guests attending would be from Buffalo, the other half from Oswego, but I wasn’t finding the right place. I wanted a place on the water, had a hotel attached to it, and it had to feel right. On whim I decided to swing by Alexandria’s and I am so glad I did! The banquet room was HUGE and had a bar that could be open to the room or closed off with a good-sized balcony. Since I do not live locally, I was worried about planning the wedding from across the country, but Alexandria’s made planning so easy and always were able to meet up with me when I was able to come to Oswego to plan. The food tasting was impressive – six delicious choices, it was hard for me to make a selection so I choose four entrees to offer to our guests, and we did not have one disappointed guest. They even made a vegan eggplant parm that was so perfect!! People are still raving about the food! The hotel was extremely accommodating to all of the guests. My fiancé (now husband!) and I had an awesome room that was big enough to accommodate all six bridesmaids, a makeup artist, photographers, my parents and myself while we got ready! I could go on and on about how happy my husband and I are that we chose Alexandria’s, but I’m sure that I have lost the attention of most readers by now… So, check out Alexandria’s! They are easy to work with, accommodating, affordable, and the venue is just beautiful.
Dream Come TrueReviewed on 6/10/2014 Michelle K
This venue fulfilled both my and my husband's dream for a reception venue (we hosted our ceremony elsewhere). The venue connects to a great hotel to accommodate our out of town guests. The staff set up the bar, lobby, and ballroom exactly to our specifications. The staff was attentive to our guests' needs, everyone was fed and beverage well! The ballroom was sized efficiently to fit our 10 piece band as well as 150 guests. Everything promised- they saw forth that it was provided!
100% Satisfied BrideReviewed on 6/16/2013 Meghan H
If it's in your budget and you're looking for a venue in Upstate New York, Bayshore Grove is the place to go. They take care of EVERYTHING for you when it comes down to the wire so you, as the bride, don't feel the need to stress out over the small things. The venue is gorgeous inside and out and they regularly update the premises. The only reason I deducted one star for the value is because I know that there prices are going progressively up with time, as is the case with any venue, I'm sure; however I think some of the things that they charge for goes a little beyond your typical wedding venue.
Wonderful!Reviewed on 7/07/2014 Emily S
The venue was beautiful, clean, and romantic. The staff was incredible! They were helpful and courteous through the entire weekend. Shout out to Britney for being 20 steps ahead of all of us. If you have a wedding here, (which you should) just make sure Britney is there! Thank you to the whole staff for helping create the most beautiful day of our friends lives! #laurieandrob4

Super fabulousReviewed on 10/28/2011 Jennifer J
I loved this venue out of all the places I looked. I was pleased with the staff at Bayshore, everyone went out of their way to make sure we had an awesome day. George was easy to work with and very personable. FABULOUS!!!!!
Very happy with outcomeReviewed on 9/01/2011 Nicole B
I was a bit frustrated at first because it took them so long to call me back. I think I called about 12 times before they called me back to be honest. At this point, I told myself I didn't want to work with them because it would be too much of a hassle everytime I wanted to get information from them. However, there hadn't been another place that I really liked and the view at Bayshore was amazing. I am so glad that I ended up having my wedding there. George and Adam were actually great to work with and were very accomodating. Like I said before, the view on the lake is amazing!
Wonderful location and serviceReviewed on 7/05/2011 Coleen S
I was extremely pleased that we chose Bayshore for our wedding ceremony and reception. George was great to work with and very accomodating and flexible. He had no problem meeting with us a few times before the wedding to go over details and questions. The day of the wedding, everything went perfectly. The staff is very professional and pleasant, and George did a great job making sure everything happened as planned. Beyond the great service, the location is absolutely beautiful and a perfect place for a wedding.
Best place to have your weddingReviewed on 6/13/2011 Kelley C
Living in Baldwinsville, with friends and family around the Syracuse area, we were worried about having our wedding so far away in Oswego. But every single guest told us this was by far the most gorgeous wedding they have ever been to and we owe that to the Bayshore. Not only is it beautiful there, but the service was outstanding. George Broadwell is super helpful and very patient. Throughout the wedding he and his staff made sure that everyone was having a good time and everyone's needs were met. They go above and beyond which made our wedding absolutely perfect. We couldn't have asked for a better venue.
Couldn't be happierReviewed on 11/17/2010 Erin A
My husband and I were planning our wedding in about 7 months. Working with George at Bayshore Grove put me at ease everytime. Anything we needed or asked about George accommodated for. Not only was George amazing to work with but what really grabbed out attention when we checked it out was the scenery. We really wanted to have our wedding on the water and honestly, words couldn't describe how beautiful our wedding day/night was there. The sunset was breathtaking! I highly reccommend Bayshore to anyone who is looking for a gorgeous, natural, and accommodating venue to get married at.
A setting like no otherReviewed on 10/09/2010 Cathy C
The minute I drove up to the place I knew that i wanted my daughter's wedding there. Working with Bayshore was great and they helped make the day perfect. The setting is right on Lake Ontario and the grounds are beautiful. The backdrop of the water adds so much . The food is delicious!!
Beautiful venueReviewed on 9/08/2010 Dione W
