Best Wedding on the Jersey ShoreReviewed on 5/22/2014 Jeanna C
We had our wedding on April 12, 2014 at McLoone's Supper Club. We chose this site because we did not want your traditional wedding venue. We had a cocktail reception overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and the historical city of Asbury Park. Since our first day meeting with Rachel, she was amazing. Rachel listened to our needs and wants & made sure our wedding was everything we dreamed of. Rachel & her entire staff were wonderful & so nice, polite & accommodating!!! The food was delicious , the atmosphere was perfect, & the staff were beyond helpful. Our family & friends are still talking about our wedding because of the great food, staff and the beautiful view. Thank you to Rachel & her staff for making our wedding a dream come true!!!
Go with McLoone'sReviewed on 4/24/2014 Sarah S
Rachel K. is great at her job, and makes the entire experience of working with Tim McLoone's Supper Club so easy, respectful, and gratifying. She went out of her way to give us the best wedding day we could have imagined, bent over backward and did flips in the air to make sure we got more than our money's worth, and never stopped working for us, the clients. So great. Definitely have your wedding here. Asbury Park is really changing nowadays, but it's still got a great vibe, and having your wedding at the beach and on the boardwalk will give you and your guests beautiful, lasting memories. We couldn't be happier.
Tim McLoone's Supper ClubReviewed on 3/28/2014 Rebecca D
We had a wonderful time at Tim McLoone's Supper Club. Everyone raved about the food and the space is very unique. The full bar inside was a major plus. Rachel, the wedding coordinator, was extremely helpful and everything went very smooth. She was a pleasure to work with. The price was reasonable compared to other venues on the beach that we looked at. The only down side to the venue is the size. If you have a really large guest list, McLoone's probably can't accommodate you. For us the size was actually a plus because it forced us to keep our guest list manageable. We had about 150 guests.
We recently had our wedding at The Supper Club & it was more beautiful than we even could have imagine! Vikki and Jill went above and beyond to help make sure our wedding was absolutely perfect ! Everything from the decor to the food was just perfect! ! We had about 140 guests and we have received texts & phone calls from almost every single one of them saying how beautiful our wedding was , how delicious the food was & what a perfect place The Supper Club was for a wedding! I wish I could relive my wedding reception every weekend because of how perfect Vikki ,Jill & rest of the staff at The Supper Club made our special night !
I couldn’t recommend Tim McLoone’s Supper Club highly enough. We wanted a simple wedding ceremony with our feet in the sand and just an awesome reception party with great food. It was the perfect location for us. The room is so unique and has a ton of classic charm. We instantly fell in love with the venue the minute we walked in. Vikkie and Jillian are simply amazing people to work with. They were so excited to help us plan our wedding, and even helped us customized a few bits to make it that much more special for us. The food was flat out amazing between the cocktail hour and the main buffet dinner. I’ve never seen a venue be more accommodating with making sure all of our guest’s dietary needs were seen to as well. Our guests are still raving about the party. If you’re on the fence you need to just go visit and meet with Vikkie or Jillian and you’ll want to sign on the spot.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about McLoone’s Supper Club. When initially searching for reception sites, we were looking for somewhere that would fit our Gatsby/Boardwalk Empire theme. McLoone’s was the first venue we visited and we fell in love (I was already enamored by the pictures and visiting the space sealed the deal). We visited three other venues the same day and nothing compared in terms of individuality, dinner packages (McLoone’s gives the biggest bang for your buck by far), and ambiance. Vikkie and Jillian were amazing to work with. They are both professional, responsive, friendly, and such a pleasure to work with. Both Vikkie and Jillian understood my vision for the day and did an excellent job at setting up all of the decorations that I had brought (and there were a lot!). In addition to the Casablanca package, we added the beach ceremony (which was incredible and, from what I saw so far, allowed for beautiful pictures), the AV package, raw bar, and valet (this was crucial as several events were going on in Asbury that weekend and allowed guests to pull right up to McLoone’s). So many of our guests raved about the food, saying that it was the best wedding food they’ve had and we agree! The wait staff was courteous, attentive, and skilled, as well as the bartenders. The groom and I both commented several times on how we felt pampered and taken care of throughout the whole reception. In terms of space, we had just about 100 guests and the space was perfect. We loved the booth seating from the start and the additional tables fit perfectly in the space. Furthermore, Asbury Park offers a gorgeous view off of McLoone’s balcony, including the city, beach/ocean, and Convention Hall. The morning after, we had a brunch at the Asbury Grille right below the Supper Club for about 50 guests and, once again, there were no disappointments or problems. The food and service were great.
We had such an amazing experience using Tim McLoone's as our wedding venue. When we started planning our wedding, my husband and I knew we did not want to hold our reception in a traditional catering hall. From the minute we stepped into the unique and beautiful room at McLoone's we knew we were in the right place. The location of the restaurant right on the boardwalk with an amazing view of the water also impressed us. Vikkie and Jillian were absolutely amazing to work with from day one through the end of our reception. Vikkie was very flexible and helpful with customizing our package, helped us determine the best layout and floor plan for our wedding, and was extremely organized throughout our process. On the day of the wedding Jillian made sure we were taken care of all day and that we had everything we needed. The food was excellent- we opted for the buffet and our guests loved everything served. We can't thank Vikkie and Jillian enough for making our wedding reception perfect!
We had our wedding at The Supper Club on 5/20/16. Victoria and Jillian were amazing to work with the entire planning process. They always responded to emails and calls within 24 hours and made the wedding planning process so easy! The beach ceremony was so wonderful and they even have access to a beach wheelchair for any guests that may need it. Everyone has been raving about the food and saying it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding! weddingweweddingnkVictoriaand Jillian
My husband & I were married at Tim McLoone's on 5/21/16. Words cannot describe the magical day it was thanks to Victoria & Jillian at Tim McLoone's. If you are looking for a more unique wedding in the awesome town of Asbury Park, McLoone's captures the towns energy. Everything we wanted; a beach ceremony, a more non- traditional beach wedding & amazing food, we got it there. From the first meetings with Victoria & Jillian, to the actual day, everything went so smooth. They were extremely attentive to each detail we requested & the entire day was more then we expected! Although it was borderline rain & chilly they went thru with the beach ceremony as requested. The reception was a blast, the details were attended to beyond our expectations & the food was amazing!! I cannot say enough about the team & the venue!!! Book your wedding there ASAP!
The entire evening was amazing! Though the weather did not hold out for our outdoor cocktail hour, Victoria and her staff made sure everything went smoothly. Victoria also really helped me set the tone for what I wanted on my husbands and my big day. They are truly an 'all inclusive' venue. The food is spectacular and the cake is also part of the wedding packages. We did not opt for the beach ceremony, but having it available to us was helpful when we were making our decisions. This venue was also SUPER accommodating when it came to wanting our own live music and loading in and out gear. When we walked in the space really took our breathe away. This is the perfect venue for any bride.
This place was amazing. Vicky is so SO helpful and super easy to talk to. She worked really well with my day-of coordinator to make sure everything was perfect-and we were even able to have the cocktail hour outside, which was fantastic for that weekend in April. Food was great, all the waitstaff was very attentive, plus they wrap up a bunch of food and one of each entree to take home with you so you don't miss anything!
Chic Vintage Supper Club!Reviewed on 12/20/2015 Leah P
When we first started wedding planning, I was inspired by images of old Hollywood nightclubs, with big dance floors surrounded by cozy booths and a live big band. I thought I had to give up on the idea, being New Jersey natives, and that being more of a west coast idea. I was wrong! Tim McLoone's Supper Club is vintage flair without being outdated, it's city chic with a view of the ocean! We hired a swanky jazz band and decorated very minimally, because the space itself has such style, and we loved that our cocktail hour was outdoors on the upper deck. We worked with a few different people during our planning process, and each was as sweet, professional and helpful as the last. Jillian was our final coordinator, and she's the one who calmed me down over the phone a week before the wedding when I discovered the Asbury Park Zombie Walk had been rescheduled to our wedding day (part of it takes place on the boardwalk right outside the venue) and seemed genuinely as excited for our wedding day as we were! The food was amazing (we're still receiving compliments on it) and the service was consistently attentive and friendly. I have been filming weddings for the past 5+ years, so I'm familiar with a lot of venues in the area, and we knew we didn't want the usual wedding-factory banquet hall. I loved that the Supper Club was unique and a little out of the box, while still offering clear, comprehensive wedding package options, so all the hardest work was done for us! We opted for a couple of add-ons that we were really happy to have: a premium open bar upgrade, valet parking, and the A/V tech package for uplighting and utilizing the sound system for the band (the Supper Club is a concert venue when private events aren't booked, so we wanted to make sure we took advantage of that!) They're partnered with an awesome bakery so the wedding cake is included with the package - we were so relieved that was one less thing to worry about! The cost was reasonable, especially considering the outstanding service. We couldn't be happier with our choice for our reception venue - all night, our guests told us it was "so us" - Tim McLoone's Supper Club was more perfect for us than we even thought possible.
Perfect wedding venue!Reviewed on 11/29/2015 Kristen O
Our wedding was amazing! We had our ceremony on the beach and reception in the Supper Club in August 2015. Rachel and the rest of the staff were extremely helpful and accommodating from the moment we started considering it as our wedding venue. We had a lot of questions throughout the process. Rachel and Blaire were very patient and informative with us. They answered all of our questions and provided lots of feedback and suggestions. The wedding reception was perfect. Everyone was taken care of. The food was outstanding! Dietary restrictions were taken care of without worry (several gluten free guests) All of our guests commented on how cool the venue was and how good the food was. They packed up all of our decorations, centerpieces, extra, favors, etc. for us to pick up the next day at which time they also gave us leftovers from the cocktail hour, dinner, and dessert to take home and enjoy. The maitre d' made sure that we got to try the passed hors d'oeuvres and always had a drink in hand while engaging with our guests, which she did very professionally. No wedding is perfect; we had issues with our photographer and hotel but McLoones was great from start to finish. We could not have asked for better service and could not recommend highly enough.
Unique and Amazing Shore Venue!Reviewed on 11/12/2015
Tim McLoone's Supper Club was the first venue my wife and I looked at; we instantly fell in love and didn't need to look any further. We always knew we didn't want a cookie-cutter banquet hall or ballroom, and McLoone's (in the old Howard Johnson's building), is anything but! It's gorgeous, funky, iconic, and an intimate atmosphere for a smaller wedding. We had just under 60 people and it never felt empty. The 360 panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean, Boardwalk, and city are breathtaking. And Asbury Park is a unique place we both love! When we began working with Rachel, the event director, we knew immediately that we were in good hands. She made planning seamless and went above and beyond to bring our whole vision to life. We wanted to have a meatless wedding, and when we requested falafel and mushroom risotto, she and the chef said "no problem!" She handled getting the permits and other details coordinated for our beach ceremony, and ensured our decorations were set up perfectly on the big day. We barely had to lift a finger; Rachel and the entire wonderful staff took care of everything and totally eased our stress. We were able to truly enjoy our wedding thanks to their amazing skills and constant assistance. We cannot find enough words to express our gratitude! The value was also excellent for this area. McLoone's has flexible options and packages to choose from and the food is plentiful and delicious! No one even missed the meat at our wedding and everyone had their fill. Much better than your typical wedding fare. And the inclusion of open bar and a gorgeous custom wedding cake from Chocolate Carousel in nearby Wall provide even more for your money. If you are looking for a unique and memorable wedding experience, McLoone's might just be your venue. My wife and I can confidently say our wedding was a dream--and it was FUN! If you're looking to get married at the Jersey Shore, you owe it to yourselves to check this place out.
flawless experienceReviewed on 11/07/2015 Elizabeth M
We had an August 2015 wedding and could not have been happier with our decision. Rachel and her staff are beyond helpful, professional, and timely. McLoone's provided a great combination of non-traditional but had all of the ease that a large venue could offer (set up and breakdown, excellent food/drinks included in the cost, attentive staff). Rachel took care of everything from start to finish - permits for the beach, coordinating with venders day of, and even putting up every one of my painstaking DIY decorations to keep our cost manageable. There are a lot of options to make the space what you want (keeping the star wall or turing to off, adjusting the uplighting, bringing your own decor), and there was plenty of space for our guests to move around in and outside of the venue. The cake included was beautiful and delicious (and helped with a gluten free option very easily), and our guests could not say enough about the delicious food and drinks - they even packed us leftovers so we could eat it later and try a bit of everything! They were upfront about pricing and you are able to customize so many options to fit your budget. Lastly, having been a guest to many weddings - staff is important. We receive so many compliments of the staff being friendly, attentive, helping guests get out stains from wine spills and returning a very valuable diamond tennis bracelet that fell off of a guests wrist. Would highly recommend! Thanks you for a relaxing and memorable event!
We really love this place, and they did a Fabulous job with our Wedding!Reviewed on 11/05/2015 Kim M
They always had the right look, but how would they do with our very unique themed wedding...they knocked it out of the park. All my questions always answered in a timely matter. Always helpful and nice. The whole staff treated us so well. The food was excellent, though you sometimes forget to eat while running around to all your guest. We had the leftovers the next day, so good. I highly recommend the Supper Club. We even went back last week for dinner, gonna be getting their frequent diner card next. Oh, also great brunch with wedding guest the day after. This is a great place, no doubt about it. Thank you Supper Club!
Magical!Reviewed on 11/02/2015 Greg B
PERFECTION. That's how I'd describe our wedding reception at Tim McLoone's Supper Club, from start to finish. Our banquet manager, Rachel, was extremely attentive and took care of every last detail from the moment we booked. She and our coordinator Jillian made the whole process seamless and easy and we are so grateful. We had a ton of decorations with specific instructions and they executed everything perfectly. The entirety of the staff here is friendly, professional, and go above and beyond to help you. The venue itself is gorgeous and so different from any other wedding venue I've seen - it is a true supper club atmosphere and made for an unforgettable, unique night. Our guests are still raving about it - I've heard countless times now that this was "the best wedding we've ever been to!" The location is awesome - there's plenty of great entertainment right down the Asbury boardwalk for an afterparty. The food was delicious! There are countless options to customize your night. Our guests LOVED everything from the cocktail hour appetizers to the main course. This was truly the best night of our lives and we are forever thankful to the team at McLoone's!
Amazing food and location!Reviewed on 10/29/2015 Laura P
We could not have asked for a more perfect place to hold our wedding reception. We live locally and have always admired the building, the location and the food. When we stopped by one Saturday and looked upstairs they were setting up for a wedding and the room looked incredible. At that moment we both knew this was the venue for us. From the moment we contacted McLoone’s they were very helpful, responsive and professional. Rachel was our event coordinator and she was a dream to work with. She was patient and helped us through every step of the process to bring our vision to life and make sure our wedding day was exactly what we wanted. She truly went above and beyond to make the whole process as easy as possible and ensured that everything was setup exactly as we wanted on our big day. If you are looking for a unique, fun, memorable wedding experience then McLoone’s might be the perfect venue for you. We received so many compliments from guests boasting about the food, atmosphere, and the overall experience – it was truly unlike any other wedding they have ever been to. Most importantly, we had the most amazing night, enjoyed every moment of our reception and couldn’t have been happier. Thanks again McLoone’s and Rachel for make our day so special.
Highly recommendReviewed on 10/25/2015
I can't praise McCloone's enough. We had a small (60) afternoon wedding in September. The whole process from booking the facility to the actual day was seamless and, more importantly, painless! Rachel and her team really know what they are doing and were so easy to work with! The day was perfect! The service people were great, friendly, accommodating and EVERYONE (including an incredibly picky grand,other) raved about the food!!! The only thing thing I would say is there was TOO much food! I asked to have the leftovers brought to a food-bank as it was a little obscene. Hopefully that happened! Overall I would do it all again! Great location to boot!
Spectacular Reception VenueReviewed on 10/24/2015
McLoone's Supper Club in Asbury Park was an excellent partner in creating and implementing our wedding plans. The event planning staff was amazing and helped us every step of the way as we created our reception from menu planning to decorations and everything in between. We especially loved that the package was all-inclusive (food, bar, wedding cake, AV package for lights/music, simple table decor). We had one vendor for most of our major expenses and that really helped everything feel streamlined and easy to manage. As for the day itself, we really felt taken care of. They made setup seamless. We were able to have access to the room early to take pictures. They took care of boxing all of our leftover favors, food, decorations, etc. for us so that we could celebrate with our guests after the reception. Our guests are still talking about the amazing food and views! The cocktail hour had such ample portions that the guests felt stuffed just on the passed hors d'ourves. We opted for the buffet package and everyone raved about the food. McLoone's worked with us to make the menu suit our specific tastes and everything came out perfectly. I'd definitely recommend the buffet since it still felt very elegant and was extremely cost effective. Also, the food at the buffet was extremely plentiful. They did an excellent job of providing for our guests. Maybe the best part of the whole experience are the spectacular views you get from the second floor of the historic building. We had the run of the whole top floor including the 360 degree balcony overlooking both the hip & happening beachfront and the ocean. It was perfect for picture taking. It also allowed guests to feel like they had the freedom to roam about. Many have remarked that they loved the space for the views, for the way it felt really spacious and for the fact that they enjoyed both indoor and outdoor space. I'd wholeheartedly recommend McLoone's for your wedding. It was the second best choice we made for our wedding, behind only the choice we made to marry each other!
I cannot say enough amazing things about my experience at Tim McLoone's Supper Club. I got married on the beach in June 2015 followed by a reception at McLoone's. From day one the staff was incredibly patient, sweet, knowledgeable and quick to respond! I began working with Rachel Koeppel. She was wonderful, we worked with her up until a month before our wedding. She went on maternity leave and we were introduced to Blaire Katz. I was worried since we had been working with someone for over a year regarding our wedding. Blaire was fabulous and exceeded my expectations! I had an incredible experience with her, every last minute email and crazy question she handled with patience and details. Melinda, our maitre'd was on point! I had a large bridal party, 7 Bridesmaids/6 Groomsmen with family walking out for the ceremony. Melinda handled it like a pro. We were late coming back from our photos, Melinda was patient and handled everything while we were gone. There were last minute issues with our DJ regarding introductions. Melinda was composed, heard what I wanted and communicated it to the DJ effortlessly. Before the wedding I took photos by myself, I was able to see my vision come to life before my eyes, it was powerful. McLoone's and the staff got everything right. The AV guy Tony got my video to play, which was quite the feat. I had live performers and McLoone's supplied all of the equipment. Tony made sure everything was set up and sounded great. Blaire let us keep all of our items in the Bridal Suite since there wasn’t an event the next day. The next day we came by and she gave us food, including everything from our Cocktail Hour. This meant so much to us since we missed it. We couldn't fit our wedding arch in the car, Blaire said we could keep it there until we got back from our honeymoon. I couldn't have asked for a more attentive group of people and unique venue.
Can't go wrong at Mcloone's!Reviewed on 1/03/2015 Lindsay R
I got married at McLoone's Supper Club on November 7th, 2014 and the entire experience was wonderful! From the moment we saw the venue and met with the banquet coordinator, we knew this was our place, and it did not disappoint. They helped us every step of the way and were always there to answer any questions that we had. When the big day finally arrived the room looked absolutely beautiful and everything flowed so seamlessly. We actually had our ceremony inside as well and I was worried that there may be some logistical problems with the seating and moving the guests and tables, but it was not a problem at all as they took care of everything. The staff was unbelievably friendly and helpful to my husband and I, as well as all of our guests. And I haven't even gotten to the food yet! Several of my guests commented that it was the best wedding food they have ever had and that there was an abundance of food to choose from. The portions were full sized, not the small measly portions you usually get as your entree at a wedding. I can't say enough good things about McLoone's. They made the day I was dreaming of for so long as magical as I hoped it would be. If you choose to have your wedding there you will not be sorry!
Amazing weddingReviewed on 11/11/2014 Amanda T
I am so glad I had my wedding at McLoone's. The staff were helpful every step of the way and the venue is really different from most wedding venues. Definitely worth considering if you are sick of looking at the same cookie-cutter banquet halls. The prices were very fair and the food was so good, I wish I had eaten more of it! Also, they are pretty flexible with their menu as I had lots of vegan/vegetarians at my wedding. The staff had no problem providing lots of options for them for my cocktail-style reception. Cannot recommend this place enough!
Absolutely PerfectReviewed on 11/05/2014 Kristen M
We were married in May 2014 (Memorial Day Weekend), and it took me far too long to post this. To put it simply, Tim McLoone’s Supper Club helped me create my dream wedding, and I cannot be more thankful. This is definitely not the traditional wedding venue, but if you are looking for some early Hollywood charm, a (not literal) smoky 30’s night club vibe, or just a nice intimate venue with a gorgeous beach wedding and the best event planner one could ask for, this might be your place. Located in Asbury Park in the old circular Howard Johnson building, the Supper Club was not a place we found on our own. Knowing we wanted a beach wedding, we looked into some traditional venues, including another McLoone property in Long Branch. I received an email reply to my inquiry from Rachel, who sent us the Supper Club info as well, just in case we might want to look there as an option. As we we're in the Asbury Park area anyway, we thought we give it a look, and we fell in love with the venue immediately. Food was delicious, views from the upper floor and balcony spectacular, and Rachel even made it clear they could accommodate any reasonable request and arrange everything for the beach ceremony, including the permits with reasonable costs and limited hassle. From start to finish the Supper Club was easy to work with, and on the day of the Wedding itself everything was as close to perfect as humanly possible. My guests were blown away by the professionalism and attentiveness of the staff, and I could not recommend both Rachel and the venue enough. My friends are already asking when we can renew our vows there again for another celebration! Definitely an amazing place, and I look forward to spending my anniversaries there for years to come.
Outstanding Wedding at McCloone'sReviewed on 10/28/2014
From the initial planning stages of my wedding, to the final dance, McCloone's provided superior service in every way. Rachel, the event planner, provided guidance and helpful suggestions, making the entire process stress-free. The event was perfectly executed, and the food was superb and plentiful. Top shelf liquor wasn't bad either! I highly recommend McCloone's Supper club in Asbury Park for any special event!
