The Brookside was everything we wanted and more. From the first time we went to see the venue and meet with the staff they were great. They work as a team to handle all the planning and there was never any miscommunication between them or with us. the location is great, and the venue itself is beautiful. We did our ceremony outside and did our reception inside and it was perfect. We had around 130 people and it did not seem crowded at all. Frank and Andy really seemed to know all of the other vendors that we were using which made things even easier that day. We met a few times to go over all the details of the wedding, which was great because they walk you through every little thing that you need to know or do for the day of. They also get back to you right away via email with any random questions you may have. We did our pictures there beforehand which made the cocktail hour and wedding more enjoyable for the entire wedding party. They have an awesome deck that overlooks Onset Bay and the treeline of the golf course. Most of our guests made their way out there right before sunset (which is an amazing sight there) and we took a ton of pictures around that time. The wedding staff was great. They made sure that we knew our dinner was served and catered to everyone's needs. The food was PHENOMENAL. We did upgrade our meat to the tenderloin and everyone loved it. It was well worth it. The bar service was also great. They handled everything perfectly. We did an open bar for cocktail hour, wine service for dinner and then beer and wine for the wedding party. Not one question throughout the entire thing. Amy took care of a lot in the service end of things. Turned out I messed up one of our wedding signs and she fixed it and I never even knew about it. Exactly what you want for the day of your wedding. From when we arrived at the venue Andy was our planner for the day. He made sure everyone was where they needed to be throughout the entire day and night. He sent timed the ceremony, set us up for pictures, got everyone ready for announcements and so on. I would recommend this venue to anyone who wants a wedding on the Cape and doesn't want to pay a ridiculous amount for their wedding. The staff is great and the place is great.
Beautiful VenueReviewed on 7/31/2015 Jamie W
I could go on forever with nothing but wonderful things to say about The Brookside Club. Frank and the rest of the event team know exactly what to do to help the future newly weds plan a wedding. They were able to answer any questions I had throughout the entire process. The venue itself is absolutely breathtaking. Our ceremony took place outdoors on the second tier of the driving range. We had 213 guests so our reception was held under the large tent. The pictures we have seen so far from the evening were beautiful! The Brookside Club is a gorgeous location that has a team who will do everything they can to be sure that your wedding goes on without any issues!
Perfect in every wayReviewed on 10/15/2014 Jaimie T
It still gives me chills to look back on our wedding day & the Brookside club (specifically Andy & Frank) are to thank for this. From start to finish we felt welcomed with open arms at the Brookside Club. The day of our wedding could not have gone more smoothly - the food was delicious (even our guests commented on our food being some of the best food they had at a wedding), our tent was like a magical space transformed beyond our wildest dreams, and my husband and I wanted for nothing. The staff were friendly, fun, and efficient, and the service was truly exceptional. And then, there's the sunset... breathtakingly beautiful. The Brookside is a beautifully, exceptionally maintained property that provides top of the line service. The experience starts at the door and is wonderful all the way through. This is a true reflection of the management; it was an absolute pleasure to work with both Andy and Frank. They guided us all the way through the wedding planning process and did everything possible to help us make the day our dream come true with a budget we felt comfortable with. I recommend the Brookside club without hesitation and with full confidence that if you choose to have your wedding here, it will be a decision you are thankful for making every time you think back to one of the most important days of your life.
We had a great experience with The Brookside Club for our wedding on 3/25/17. When we first sat down with Andy, he made us feel comfortable. There was no pressure to book with them. The whole night went so smoothly. The communication we had throughout the planning process was great. We had a few phone consults with Andy, and he helped us through every step of the process. The room was beautiful, the waitstaff was great. As the bride and groom, we had one server assigned to just take care of us and she was so attentive and fantastic. Everyone raved about the food. The staff was able to set up everything we brought, including the centerpieces, the card and place card table, and the cake setup. We are so thankful to the Brookside team for a fantastic wedding experience! Gene and Angie Kelley
The Brookside is a beautiful venue. Our wedding was perfect. Frank and Andy were amazing and very helpful. I recommend this wonderful venue to anyone getting married on Cape Cod.
I'm not sure I can express how amazing The Brookside is, from the moment we called to inquire, to our first meeting, tasting, and final details, they were above and beyond anything we ever expected. My husband and I had our "vision" of what we thought the day would turn out like blown away. When we first called and then met with Frank, we felt completely comfortable, being a gay couple, sometimes you never know what to expect, but they were so welcoming and friendly. The food is amazing, if I could give 10 stars I would. The view and scenery is breathtaking, and the sunset we had on that day was indescribable. I would highly recommend Brookside to anyone looking to get married on Cape! Our guests are still talking about the incredible service, food and beautiful venue! We also had our ceremony there, and Andy did a great job orchestrating the whole thing, and it went so smoothly. The Brookside will always be a speacial place for us, thanks a ton guys, you and your staff were/are AMAZING!!!!! 💜 Jason & Ronnie
I can't say enough about the wonderful experience we had at the Brookside Club. The staff was fantastic. Frank and Andy made sure everything was taken care of down to the last detail. The food was absolutely fantastic. Our guests gave nothing but rave reviews. Everything was perfect and totally tailored to what kind of wedding we were looking for. I highly recommend Brookside.
"Good Afternoon Frank/Andy- I just wanted to send you an email thanking both of you and all of your staff for making our wedding day the most perfect day ever. Everything went so smoothly, perfect, and was absolutely beautiful. The food was absolutely amazing as well as your staff and the day literally could not have been any more perfect. Rick and I cannot thank you enough for making our day the most perfect memorable day of our lives and we hope to see you both soon when we dine in! Thank you so much, Shannon and Rick"
Looking for the perfect venue was easy after going to the Brookside. We had some bad experiences just viewing other venues on Cape, but the Brookside staff were so welcoming and friendly. Our wedding had approximately 100 guests and the Brookside's indoor venue was perfect! The views were beautiful, and it was great to have the deck in the back which was used for cocktail hours. Frank, Andy and the team were great. They were all super nice and professional. They were super helpful and accommodating. Even helping me when our first band fell through. My waitress was a sweetheart, always filling me in throughout the night and taking care of us. The food was delicious! The venue was originally recommended to me because of the food. Don't let the Toyota dealership in front fool you, take a ride up. The venue is beautiful and worth checking out when looking for a place to have your reception. Thank you so much Brookside team! -Jenn 10.8.16
The Brookside Club made our dream wedding come to life! We were sold on our first meeting at the Brookside with their friendly, knowledgeable staff and breathtaking views. Frank and Andy were so helpful throughout our planning process, quick with responses and went out of their way to be sure our day was nothing short of amazing. Patrick and I had the time our lives on the big day and can not thank The Brookside and their staff enough! From the cocktail hour (which our wedding party got to enjoy too with our very own set up of crackers & cheese and raw bar outside waiting for us to enjoy during pictures), to the food, bar and extended dance floor for our outdoor reception the Brookside went above and beyond to make our day absolutely amazing!
If you are hunting around for a perfect wedding venue then get to Brookside ASAP because you will find they are the best! First, they only book you for that day. You will not share the venue with other events that day so, it felt like we had the place to ourselves. The staff is amazing and the planning support completely exceeded our expectations. Everything felt personalized and the attention to detail was spot on. My guests are still raving about the experience. The food was excellent! A few things that brides should know about...the view is incredible, the room is perfect (clean, fresh, great floor plan and room layout, nothing was wore out or in need of repair and the color of the decor is complimentary to all wedding colors) and the staff will treat you as you deserve on your wedding day! My husband and some of the guys golfed that morning and had a great experience as well! They received excellent service from the golf pro too! We have nothing but great things to say and will visit the Sunset Grille often to reminisce about our special day (hopefully after a round of golf).
Brookside was the perfect venue. Andy and Frank were extremely accommodating and helped to make our day spectacular. Our friends and family are still talking about the AMAZING food. The views are great, the atmosphere is even better. I am so happy with our choice to have our wedding at the Brookside Club!
September 4, 2016... We had the best wedding day!!! The sunset was to die for and the entire staff catered to all of our needs. The brookside club went above and beyond for our special day and I wish we could relive every second! From the first meeting to the wedding day every thing was amazing. I am giving the brookside club a 5 star but wishing I could give more!!
The view at the brookside is amazing. We got some really awesome pictures at sunset. The location was awesome and everyone was saying how good the food was. Andy was great and very helpful. I would recommend this location to anyone and everyone!!
From start to finish our experience with the Brookside Club was everything a bride and groom could dream of! From the clubs friendly staff, delicious food and unforgettable view we were happy beyond our wildest dreams. The planning process was a breeze, the Brookside staff was well organized and there to answer questions when needed. We held our ceremony out on the grass and with everything from the beautiful green, buzzards bay, the sea shell path there was little need for decor.. Our guests were swept away by the natural beauty of the Brookside Club. Our red prion was held inside, we went with the buffet package with options of cod and London broil, we still have guests talking about how delicious the food was and how it melted off the fork into your mouth, absolutely delicious!! The buffet was run so smooth, staff was amazing! Dance floor was packed the entire night with all 150 guests and there was room to spare! When the sun set there was a great opportunity to get sunset pics for guests and the bride and groom! Such a fantastic view everyone couldn't stop raving about it! This was hands down the best night of our lives and it could not have been more perfect! Even clean up, when we came back the next morning to pick up what we left behind it was all neatly boxed and waiting for us. Staff even helped us old it into the car.. Amazing! If you're looking for a real deal wedding venue that's going to wow your guests and provide you with little to no stress, The Brookside Club is where it's at! The pictures that were captured from the Clubs natural beauty will have you dropping your jaw! I would recommend this venue over and over again, never changing a thing! Thank you so much Frank and Andy, our day would not have been the same without you and your staff!!
My husband Marc and I were so pleased with the Brookside Club for our wedding and reception on May 14, 2016. Frank, Andy and Dawn were amazing, before and during the wedding and reception. They are all very professional and their experience showed. All went so smoothly. It was so relaxing knowing that everything was taken care of for us and we could enjoy our day. The Brookside Club is so beautiful, the view is gorgeous, the staff very accommodating and helpful, and the food delicious. We had a couple of family members with food restrictions, and with physical issues, and both were taken care of with no problems. Thank you to the Brookside Club for a very memorable beautiful wedding day!!
We can't express how much we loved holding our wedding ceremony and reception at The Brookside Club in Bourne, MA. The grounds and ocean view are breathtaking, the food is fantastic, and the staff is composed of the most professional, yet down-to-earth people. Andy and Frank walked us through the entire process of planning our big day from start to finish and were quick to respond to all of our inquiries, ideas, etc. The waitstaff was attentive, friendly, and professional. Our guests are still raving about our wedding and The Brookside Club will always hold a special place in our hearts!!
From our first meeting at the Brookside Club with Andy and Frank we felt very well taken care of. It is obvious that they're experienced professionals who know how to make everyone involved feel comfortable and confident that we would have the wedding of our dreams. And it was just that - the most perfect wedding! The Brookside took care of everything, from guiding us through preparations to set up and throughout our function there was great support and communication. In addition to the great waitstaff we had Andy and Amy running the show behind the scenes the whole night, making sure everything went off without a hitch. Not only is Andy organized and professional, he also made us feel very comfortable and took away any anxiety we were feeling with the planning process. We found all Brookside personnel including Frank, Andy, and Amy who we worked directly with to be friendly personable. Not only was the staff great, but the location and venue was absolutely beautiful. We got so many compliments throughout the night about the incredible views and gorgeous setting of our wedding. While having plenty of room for our 120 guests the setting was also intimate, romantic, and fun. The food was delicious from the hor d'oeurvres to the buffet meal of chicken marsala and salmon. They also took care of a small problem for us which was very much appreciated. When we left our cupcakes behind afterwards they called our baker and had another dozen cupcakes delivered to the Brookside Club for us to pick up a few days after our wedding. It was so thoughtful. We would recommend the Brookside to any couple looking for a beautiful place to get married - be it their ceremony, reception, or both! Thanks to much to everyone at the Brookside Club for making our wedding the most perfect day we could have ever imagined.
I can't say enough how perfect Brookside is. Andy is so unbelievably helpful and amazing at what he does. Throughout all the planning, he was always there to answer questions and concerns. He has great suggestions from everything from vendors, to decor, to food and wine. The view is stunning and everything was perfectly set up. The staff handles everything, so the day was completely stress free so we could enjoy every minute! A beautiful spot, great food, and great people!
Everything was perfect! Thank you Brookside for making our wedding truly memorable!
Our day was truly amazing! I was worried that we weren't going to be able to fit in everything that we had wanted for our night but the Brookside team made sure everything happened on time without feeling rushed. In the limo I was nervous and praying everything went okay but as soon as I walked through those doors and went upstairs to the reception room I felt a sense of relaxation. Everything I had invisioned in my head over the past year Brookside had made it more than I could ever imagine! We got married over a week ago and we are still having people tell us how amazing the wedding was and how sad they are that it is over! Our day was a HUGE success and we couldn't have imagined a better place to tie the knot than Brookside! Thank you!
I just wanted to take a minute to Thank Frank and Andy at the Brookside Club for a Wonderful Wedding . My Daughter & Son in Law just got Married their 3 weeks ago. It was a Beautiful Venue, the Food was Outstanding and the Staff was very accommodating with anything needed. If your looking for a Nice Venue with reasonable prices and Beautiful views of Bourne right on a Golf Course , this is the place for you. I can't Thank Brookside Club enough for helping to make their day as Special and Beautiful as they did. :)
I was a bit terrified for I had wanted to elope just to avoid the stress of planning a wedding. Then I met Frank. He assured both my now husband and I that he and his very capable staff would take care of everything we needed. And they did! The reception was amazing and a complete blur of awesome. I was sore for two days from dancing and my face hurt from smiling so much and I have Frank, Andy, Amy and their team to thank for that. They were/are so professional and kind and patient and sweet. Everything we needed we had. I could not have asked for more. I did not have to worry about a thing and had the time of my life. And my friends and family are still raving about the food and the fun! So thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!
I was initially very overwhelmed with the venue choice process and had absolutely no idea how we were going to make our decision. We decided to visit Brookside first and I'm so glad that we did. When we walked in, I immediately knew that I had no reason to be overwhelmed by looking at venues, as I knew that I would only need to look at one. We had found where we would be married. While we were there, it began snowing which was the first snowfall of last season. My eyes teared up as I knew it just solidified that Brookside was meant to be. Andy met with us and could not have been nicer, more helpful, or more accommodating. He was patient with us as we discussed different aspects and knew the answer to every question we had. Within the months between making our decision and the actual day, I had many questions. Andy and Frank were both extremely responsible. When we had a family emergency, they were in immediate contact with me and their helpfulness was above and beyond what I ever could have dreamed. I could not have been more thankful and appreciative of them. On our big day, I arrived early to be in the reception room as guests arrived to seat themselves at our outdoor ceremony. When I walked into the room, I was overcome with love as I noticed each and every detail we had worked so hard on. Seeing everything placed/setup/orchestrated, exactly as we had wanted them to be was a true relief. I knew that I had faith in Brookside, but was completely amazed how what was in my head truly came to life. Prior to my Father and I's walk down the aisle, I was extremely anxious. Andy's presence was calming and warm, assisting with lowering my anxiety quite a bit. Throughout the ceremony and reception, staff were always available and could not have been more helpful or accommodating. I'm still getting feedback in regard to how incredible it was, how delicious the food was, and how wonderful the staff were. I will forever be thankful and grateful for The Brookside Club.
Best Venue on the CapeReviewed on 10/09/2015 Danielle M
We had our wedding at the Brookside Club on September 12, 2015 and it was absolutely perfect! The location itself is great, we had guests coming from Rhode Island and the South Shore and everyone said the ride down was a breeze. We were married outside and had our reception in their beautiful Atlantic Room. We also fell in love with the views that you get from the upstairs deck! From there you are able to see the Cape Cod canal and the railroad bridge over by Mass Maritime. Throughout our entire planning process Andy and Frank were amazing. I never stressed about anything and they played a big part in this. From the very first time we saw the venue, up until our wedding day they answered all our questions and were always available by email or phone for us to contact them. We had the most perfect day in September and can not thank the entire staff at the Brookside Club enough for making our first day of marriage the most beautiful and amazing day that we could have ever imagined!!
