Everything was wonderful...despite a little rain. Everything went very smoothly from even from our very first meeting. The day was easy too! From the set up to our private area upstairs through dinner and all the dancing! It was the happiest day!

I just got married on October 21st and the Ocean City Yacht Club was the most perfect venue. When we started looking this was our first stop, after that I fell in love and was basically forced to look at one more venue so I went and wasn't feeling it because I just wanted to... Read More have it at the yacht club. So we did! From the beginning Chris and Bill were so nice and so helpful through the whole process. They made everything so easy and stress free. When we we arrived for our wedding weekend we stopped by the club and it looked amazing even before it was completely set up. We held rehearsal the day before with Bill and it was easy. The wedding day went by without any issues, it looked beautiful and everyone was telling me how much they loved everything. The food was AMAZING (highly recommend the raspberry brie if available). I would recommend this venue over and over, if you are thinking about having your wedding here, do it!

We had our wedding just a few weeks ago and it literally was EXACTLY what I had in mind! Chris and Bill were helpful with any questions that I had, but I was able to have the freedom I wanted in choosing linens, rentals, setup etc. Everything went smoothly the night of.... Read More People were RAVING about the food--we had chosen the filet mignon and the eastern shore tilapia. I had several people mention that the steak was cooked extremely well (which is a rarity at weddings--often hard for the food to be cooked properly for that many people). We opted to do the raw bar during cocktail hour which I also highly recommend-people couldn't get enough of it. We rented a tent outside as a security blanket for bad weather and even though the weather was perfect, guests really enjoyed having a place to hang outside by the water. I highly recommend the OCYC if you're looking for the Jersey Shore feel that we were! Thank you, Bill & Chris!

My husband and I had our reception at the OCYC in June 2016 and it was seriously the best night of our lives! Bill and Chris couldn't have been more helpful in the planning and the day-of services. During planning Bill was very flexible with what we wanted to do, he knew our... Read More vendors well and I didn't need to worry about a thing. Chris was the day-of wedding coordinator and had constant communication with my husband and I throughout the entire reception. When I showed up on the day of the wedding everything was perfect. I had a lot of wedding decor and a ton to set-up onsite the day before so I was so relived everything was spot on! The venue is beautiful and spacious, it's worth every penny for the sunset photos. We chose two entrees (filet and salmon) and all of the hot appetizers we went with were to die for. I think compared to some other venues in the area, the price is comparable but the setting and service can't be beat! So many of our guests commented this this was one of the best weddings they had ever been to. I would definitely recommend the OCYC and Nobil On The Bay catering!

Honestly, we cannot say enough wonderful things about Nobil on the Bay at the OC yacht club. We knew we wanted to have our wedding there the moment we walked in the front door. The location and venue is beautiful. That is evident as soon as you pull up. Beauty can be found at... Read More other venues, but Nobil on the Bay catapulted the OC yacht club to an entirely different level. The experience was fantastic from start to finish. Bill, Chris, and Norm are incredibly helpful and informative. They know exactly what it takes to make your wedding not only incredible, but unique. They listened and offered helpful advice. Never once did we feel pushed in a direction. They reminded us of things we hadn't even thought of and suggested ways to make our day run smoothly. They are professionals, kind, and fun (all have great sense of humors which really helps if you find yourself stressed). For the wedding tasting, we brought both of our families there and made a night of it. Beforehand, you will sit down with Bill and go over preliminary details (scheduling, other vendors, food choice, etc). They had a table set up already with our tablecloth, overlay, and napkin requests so we could get an idea of what it would look like on the big day. This is what truly makes them standout. They make every effort to bring what you envision to life. The tasting night is so much fun, absolutely bring your families there (and wine). It's a really great time, almost a practice run. The chef even came out to chat. As we approached the big day, both Bill and Chris were extremely helpful in fine tuning the details. Both are attentive and responsive. We went the morning before the wedding to drop off decorations (bathroom baskets, memorial table pictures, table placecards, etc). I told them what I wanted and they executed in a way that was beyond. Thank God they did it and not me! Chris (and company) took my paltry ideas and made them into something to write home about. Now let's talk the big day. Sure, some would say we are partial because it was our wedding, but no, it was fan-freaking-tastic. The girls all dressed in the "captains quarters" which is a huge room upstairs complete with high top tables, bathroom, bar,and balcony. There is a woman(so sorry, but I can't remember her name)who is basically the maestro of the day. As soon as we arrived, she was there to ask if I need anything and had my favorite drink already in hand (my girl!). She will communicate with you the entire day and night ensuring that you know exactly what's going on and providing anything you need. She is professional, attentive, caring, and helpful. I never once wanted for anything because she was right there the entire time. We did a first look on the balcony. If you are interested in that, the balcony is a perfect place to do so. The photo ops are insane and once again, Nobil was right there making everything beautiful. We had our ceremony offsite and arrived at the Yacht Club about 25 minutes after the cocktail hour began.Guess who was outside to greet us and direct us properly so the guests did not inadvertently see us before the formal announcements? Bill!He ushered us upstairs where a bar was stocked and appetizers were waiting.Now let's move on to the food: come hungry.Risotto balls, steak skewers, clams casino will knock your socks off.I'm running out of space so I'll move on to entrees. MPerfectly timed and delicious! We HIGHLY recommend them! You will enjoy EVERY step leading to your day!!!

They are just genuinely kind and caring individuals who really want to help make your wedding the absolute best.
