  • Our wedding venue was shut down by the city ~50 days before our big day, I was panicked and Ballard Bay Club came to the rescue to make our dreams come true! They were professional, timely, caring and flexible with us given the circumstances and timeline. The venue is gorgeous, the food was outstanding (guests still raving) and the bartenders were friendly. We can't thank or recommend this Venue and Jewel Hospitality enough!

  • My daughter got married at the Ballard Bay Club July 2019! We had a great experience and beautiful wedding! We worked with the Jewel staff for over a year and always received prompt, kind responses! I can’t say enough about our day of wedding manager Julie! She was just terrific and made our Rehearsal dinner and entire wedding day go so smoothly and organized-We got tons of compliments from our guests on the food and the entire venue-Of course the view is beautiful! We highly recommend this venue to all! Worth every penny! Thank you to the whole Jewel crew! 😘😁❤️

  • I can't thank the staff at Jewel hospitality enough for putting together the most beautiful wedding ever! Everything went so perfectly and was everything I hoped it would be and more. I worked mainly with Nicole Jones and Kara Agustin, and I was blown away by how helpful they were! Both SO amazing to work with and I am so thankful for how easy they made this whole process. It was incredible and turned out just like a dream. Everything ran so smooth and flawlessley! If I visualized something they brought it to life. A perfect day at the perfect place! Not to mention the food through their catering company was delicious! I can't tell you how many people came up throughout the night complimenting it. We had 400 people attend our wedding, but not once did I feel like it was over crowded or stressful! The staff made transitions and opened up spaces for everyone to have fun and dance all night long! I could not be happier with my expirence and encourage anyone looking for a stress free weddi... Read more

  • I was married in October 2015 at the Ballard Bay Club, and it could not have been more perfect! We had a fairly tight budget, and I thought there was no way we'd be able to afford a water front property, so we were over the moon when we found the Ballard Bay Club. It's located right on Puget Sound.... we booked the north room, which has floor-to-ceiling windows with a absolutely gorgeous view of the sound. The room was the perfect size for our wedding (75 guests). We used the single room for both the ceremony and the reception. The room had a section by the windows where we had the ceremony, and was later turned into the dance floor, and a raised platform separated by a low wall where all the tables were set up for dinner. The staff was amazing to work with! We met with them a couple of times to go over what we wanted, and on the day of the wedding everything went so smoothly I didn't have to worry about anything! They handled set up and tear down of the tables, chairs, etc. and provid... Read more

  • We just had our wedding at the Shilshole Bay Beach Club on Sunday June 23, 2013 and it was absolutely AMAZING! Tasia was our coordinator and she was so awesome! She was so prompt in getting back to me and very very helpful. When we saw this place we fell in love with it the views are breath taking! We found out it was a little out of our price range and they worked with us the entire time to make our dream wedding come true! Tasia was very professional and helpful in everything she did. She was always going above and beyond what she needed to.The night of the wedding they were even more amazing doing things they didn't even need to do to help to night go so smoothly! The food was AMAZING and the rooms were decorated better than I could have imagined! I highly recommend Shilshole Bay Beach Club and Appulent Catering for your wedding it will be a night you truly will never forget! Thank you Tasia for everything you did for us!

  • Jess was our event coordinator and she was the best!! She met with us several times before the wedding and handled all of the questions from other vendors (insanely helpful, especially in the weeks leading up to the big day). Our wedding was supposed to be out doors, but it ended up raining. But the wedding ceremony and reception were gorgeous anyways. The staff was friendly and helpful and the food was delicious!! Many people told me it was the best food they've had at a wedding.

  • We had a really great experience overall at the Ballard Bay Club. The venue was set up wonderfully, the food was EXCELLENT (beef medallions and the carrot miso salmon were the biggest hits, but it was all honestly way beyond expectation). The service we received was professional and generally thoughtful. There were a few challenges early on because the person handling our contract/wedding changed twice--not their fault, but it still made for a couple lapses in communication. But overall we would definitely do it all again. Word of advice--make sure your guests know that the street signage is for the Ballard Elks, not Ballard Bay Club--a couple people got lost or confused.

  • We got married here in August 2018. We rented the entire space and did the wedding outside. It is an absolutely stunning venue. My husband and I met in Seattle and spent a lot of time in Wallingford, Fremont and Ballard area. We had a lot of out of town guests and wanted to show off what we love so much about this area and this venue delivers! It has convenient free parking and catering included which was delicious. Pricing is very reasonable and it is nice they provide venue, chairs/setup/tear down and food/bar service. They were very flexible with us on arriving early to do photos and set up some flowers. Only a couple cons: the bridal room is at the front entrance so it’s tough to sneak in/out without running into arriving guests. There is an Elks club that is open to the public right above the venue. This didn’t bother us but something to consider.

  • At about 6 months out, we are feeling completely thrilled and stress free during wedding planning. Our communication and experience with Ballard Bay Club thus far has been more than comforting. I have complete confidence to put my wedding in their hands. They have been extremely thorough; for example, I've been busy not only wedding planning but travelling for work is heavy for me this time of year, and I forgot to RSVP to the food tasting. A representative from Jewel Hospitality personally called me (and probably many others) to check if we were attending it. I felt it was very professional to follow up and she was more than understanding that I hadn't RSVP'd in time.

  • Service at Shilshole is all-inclusive, and they don't let you add/remove services from the package. They provide their own, in-house catering (through Apulent), event planner, facilities, and "event rentals" like chairs, table cloths, place settings, etc. They even had a cake knife for us to use so that we wouldn't have to go spend dozens of dollars on our own. Great flexibility -- they let us put together our own menu from bits and pieces of their own pre-set menus and add-ons. Since their larger event room wasn't booked, they also let us move our event from the smaller to the larger without having to up the price / food&bev minimum, so that was nice :) They didn't have an event the night before our AM event, so they set up our tables early and let us drop off centerpieces, etc. the day before so we wouldn't be so rushed the morning of. They were also willing to have staff on-hand so that we could go extra-early and take wedding party photos in the morning if we needed, but in the... Read more

  • It's pricey, but I can't think of a more beautiful location to have had my wedding. My husband wanted to have it in Maui, but many of our family members wouldn't have been able to join us. This was definately the next best thing. They worked closely with all of my vendors. Their staff were courteous and made sure everything ran smoothly the whole night. We took most of our photos there because it it such a beautiful site. The food was great. The chef was willing to meet my special request for rainbow chard. They cooked the filet mignon and salmon to perfection. The plated meals and wine service kept the drinks pouring and the guests happy. I've never been to a wedding where so many people stayed so long. They were all just having too good of a time to leave! I had planned on leaving a few hours into it, but ended up staying til the last minute! Fun Fun Fun. Jessie Hammer was my coordinator and she did a fabulous job.

  • We just had our wedding ceremony and reception at the Ballard Bay Club earlier this August. The scenery from the venue is absolutely amazing and hard to beat. Plus, if you are lucky and the weather is great, it is simply gorgeous to do the ceremony on their little garden facing the water. The venue itself, however, is a bit run-down and not overly impressive. A bit of the ceiling is exposed and the entrance is not something that look very glamorous either (that's probably to do with them sharing the same building as the Elk's Club). As for their staff, I have to say I am not very happy with the responsiveness I got. I arranged the wedding from overseas and so the easiest way to communicate is via emails. I had to wait days and weeks in the months prior to the wedding to get a response and in the end I just resorted to calling every time which was not the easiest for me and I do think sometimes it's better to put things in writing when you are organizing a big event with a lot of de...

  • The Shilshole Bay Beach Club is a beautiful venue (I've also reviewed the catering company attached to this venue, Apulent Catering & Events). It really does give you a sense of being in a beach club. It's right next to a small sandy beach, has a huge patio where you can accomodate more party guests or even a wedding ceremony. There's also a grassy area with picnic tables where you can sit and watch the sun go down. The interior is also beautiful. There are two main rooms, the North Room and South Room. From the North, you can also see the beautiful sunset as you have dinner by the huge windows facing the water. The hardwood floors in both rooms make it great for dancing! And the bar in the North room looks just as professional as any other in a restaurant. There's ample free parking and a drive up lane to drop off those who may have limited mobility closer to the front doors. Unfortunately, the reason for the low rating is due to the catering company attached to the venue.
