  • This place has a very beautiful garden that changes with the seasons and alot of outdoor space for you and your guests. The place was homey but too small of a foyer and bar space for the amount of people we will be having for our big day. In addition, I would have had to find something for my guests to do for 3-3.5 hours before the reception would get started.

  • We just had our wedding at Independence Harbor last month in January. Everything was great from the decor to the food we had nothing to complain about. We had roast beef and scrod as our meals. The scrod was delicious! Everything was fabulous, the staff was friendly and helpful which made wedding planning easier. I would recommend Independence Harbor as a wedding venue, especially if having a winter wedding... prices are a little bit more reasonable!

  • We could not be happier with our wedding at Independence Harbor. Everyone was so professional, helpful, and knowledgeable. Connie and Anne were always available to answer any questions we had whether it be about the venue or wedding advice in general. On the day of our wedding, the staff made sure that I got some Mac and cheese from cocktail hour when I was taking pictures. The room was gorgeous and the passed appetizers were decorated with fruit art! Our guests could not stop talking about how great the food was and how comfortable the atmosphere was. We cannot thank you enough for all you did to support the best day of our lives.

  • This review is long due! My husband and I are very happy with Independence Harbor. The garden view is beautiful and the service is amazing! All my family members and friends love taking pictures in the beautiful garden and inside the grant dining reception area. Connie and Amanda are quick to response throughout the planning. Matt and Stephanie are stars in coordinating with my Wedding Manager to run everything smoothly throughout the ceremony and the reception. Right at the beginning of the ceremony and during some part of the ceremony there was an unexpected quick rain shower. Staff were quick to respond in drying up the chairs and providing umbrellas just in case for another one. Well, we got a bonus from the shower! There's a rainbow above us during the ceremony!!! Priceless!!! All my friends and family gave great compliments about Independence Harbor, their service, and food! I would highly recommend this place to any couples! Thank you so much for making us feel so special on ou... Read more

  • We planned our wedding in 5 months and the staff at IH made it a breeze! We enjoyed working with Anne & Connie. They both really made it very easy for us and our wedding day went perfectly. Shout out to Matt & the staff on our wedding day for making the day better than we even imagined!

  • After glancing over the very mixed reviews my husband and I went with hesitancy to view Independence Harbor. We met with Connie who at first came across somewhat stern but then after explaining what we wanted and our clear vision of our day she softened. We were able to take advantage of their off season rates which were VERY reasonable and fit in perfectly with our tight budget. Connie and Anne ALWAYS responded to any and all of my questions right away putting my anxious nature right at ease. Even at our final meeting Connie was EXTREMELY flexible as it was supposed to rain the day of and allowed the bridal party to be on site earlier than previously discussed. She also allowed my very good friend to set up the centerpieces for me the day of which relieved a lot of stress. Matt was on site that day and he made sure that everything went perfectly smooth from start to finish. I had forgotten to bring the card holder and he quickly stepped in to provide a make shift one until my mom arri... Read more

  • The staff at IH was always a pleasure to deal with. Connie and Anne always answered our numerous questions promptly via email and phone. The only thing I wish we could have was a private tasting of the hors d'oeuvres, but the venue does not offer that. The food on our wedding day was delicious, and our guests are still raving about it. The staff was helpful to both myself and my now husband and went out of their way numerous times to assist us with anything. Thank you for an unforgettable evening!

  • I absolutely loved IH! I chose IH because I felt like it was a one stop shop and the grounds are beautiful! We had our ceremony take place in front of the fireplace and we took all of our wedding photos onsite. The gardens and landscape are impeccable. It was great to not have our family travel back and forth. I appreciate Connie, Anne, and Matt for all of their help and professionalism. The waitstaff was excellent and they were so busy too! IH provided me with centerpieces and table numbers; I didn’t have to deal with those minor details. Our brunch wedding was so memorable. IH also broke down the payments quarterly which was extremely helpful as we all know weddings are expensive. It was a smooth process for us!

  • Connie and Anne made the planning very easy - these ladies are *experts* in what they do and easily guided us through every step. Our actual banquet director, Matt, was outstanding! He and his team did a spectacular job guiding us through every step on the day of the wedding, ensuring everything ran smoothly. The facility and grounds are beautiful and the food was just *delicious*. Friends of ours have booked Independence Harbor for a wedding in October based on our recommendation. This place is a hidden gem - I recommend them!!!!

  • The staff at Independence Harbor work extremely hard at making sure that the day goes off without a hitch and it shows. The food is amazing, everyone of our guests raved about how delicious the brunch was. This was my first and only choice for a venue and I was not disappointed in any way.

  • Was there for a wedding on Friday afternoon July 19, 2019. Grounds are beautiful. But outside seating is too far from the gazebo where the wedding party is. Also, what really was disappointing is the sound system for the ceremony did not work. For 75% of service we could hear faint music somewhere in the distance behind us: sounded like someone was playing a radio. When officiant started the ceremony we realized it was the sound system. Not until the ceremony was almost over did someone attend to fixing the sound problem. This is inexcusable for a place that specializes in weddings. Dinner and all inside features were great.

  • I had my wedding reception here on 12/01/18, 5:30-11:00pm and everyone had a great time! One thing I really wish we could have done differently was added extra time to our reception. They do not allow any additional time no matter what. The bar was closed at 10:30, the reception ended at 11, and everyone had to be out by 11:30pm. When the DJ played the last song, our guests were shocked that the night was over and they were being kicked out. I really really wish we could have had more time. As for everything else.. Everyone loved the food! When we booked our date, we were given a certificate to go to their brunch buffet to taste some of the food options they had. We ended up picking the Chicken Portuguese and the Prime Rib. Both were to come with mashed potatoes and veggies but I requested that the chicken come with rice/veggies and they did it with no problem! The cheese/cracker/fruit display was amazing as it was decorated with food carvings! We also had soup and salad, ... Read more

    Stacey, Thank you for your glowing review, it is much appreciated. Your choice of reception hours was from 5:30PM to 11:00PM. Each of our receptions allow for 5 and 1/2 hours, which is one half hour longer than most venues. We hope to see you at one of our public brunches...please come back to visit.

  • Independence Harbor is absolutely a magical place for a wedding or any event you plan on hosting. Before we settled on this place we went to a few of their buffets that are opened to the public. The food and service were always very good. We had our wedding at IH on August 18th and everything was absolutely perfect. Matt and Martha took care of us but, it was Martha we had most of my interactions with. She is a charm. She was very professional and detailed with every aspect of our wedding. They took care of all the decorations and items we took in to them the night of the rehearsal and they did such a great job with all of it. We have no complaints. Anne and Connie are the ones who handle all of the planning for you and they are very quick in getting back to you. Our guests are still talking about how beautiful the grounds are and how great the food was. The only complaint we have was an issue with allergies that affected one of our guests. In the end, we had our guest only attend t... Read more

    "I.H." makes every effort to accommodate its guests with food allergies. It is a very common concern, and one that we deal with frequently and effectively. . The one guest referred to in this review was deathly allergic to "airborne" strawberries and oranges, fruits that are an everyday staple in our food production. "I.H." met personally with that guest several days in advance of the wedding, and was advised of the extreme nature of the allergy, and that having either of those fruits anywhere on the property would be of grave concern. Although every precaution was taken to eliminate both fruits from all areas of the facilities that the guest might encounter, we regretfully could not absolutely guarantee that airborne particles from those fruits would not emanate from the kitchen facilities. With that understanding, the guest decided to attend the garden ceremony and not the reception.
