Great Wedding VenueReviewed on 1/20/2015 Valentina S
My husband and I had our wedding reception here in May 2014 and we had a wonderful experience as did all of our guests. It was nice they had options for after the reception- we did the s'mores and more drinks outside, and I highly recommend getting the s'mores! The cocktail hour on the patio made for great photos. Overall we had a great experience!
Love it!Reviewed on 8/25/2013 barbara w
Perfect location. Have your ceremony on the beach and room for the reception inside. Guests can stay here too and I love their private cottages for the bride and groom. Beautiful location. Love it!
a mustReviewed on 5/12/2011 Michelle F
love the hotel, service ...location, ALL!!!
We could not have asked for a better venue. Rachel and her team really went out of their way to make our day one to remember. All of our guests had an amazing time and couldn't stop gushing about the location and the little details. We really had an excellent time and despite the staffing changes that occurred in the year leading up, Rachel really came through for us. Thanks for everything!
We had our wedding at the MYC this past weekend and I must say the event was breathtaking. I got off to a rocky start with the Yacht club as this past year they have had some substantial staffing changes that added quite a bit of stress to my life but they really pulled it together when it counted. As we approached our date Rachel did a great job of being available and following up with me on what was needed, when things were to be done and what things cost. The location in unmatched and if I could do it again I would not change a thing. Our guests were floored by the ballroom, the views, the hotel rooms and the service.
Overall the Montauk Yacht Club was the perfect venue for our wedding. There were a few hiccups on the way (their chef and wedding coordinator changed halfway through and the change wasn't handled amazingly) but in the end the perfect execution was worth it. They easily made day of changes (it was a little too windy for the outdoor cocktail hour we planned and they seamlessly moved it inside) and made us feel comfortable the entire day. Highly recommend!
Dream Wedding at the Montauk Yacht ClubReviewed on 10/09/2013 Stacey S
When looking for a wedding venue my (now) husband and I had a lot of criteria to be met. The Montauk Yacht Club offered everything we were looking for and more. It goes without saying that the setting is gorgeous but what you may not know just from a visit is how wonderful Michelle, Amanda, and the rest of the catering staff at MYC are to work with. They were great about communicating and making sure we were happy throughout the whole planning process. The entire staff at the MYC is so detail oriented and just what a bride and groom need to put their minds at ease. When it came time to the actual wedding day they truly made sure our day was seamless and perfect.
