  • Our wedding was set for 3/21 but had to be postponed due to personal reasons, but as it turns out, would have been postponed anyway due to the virus. But even prior to the outbreak, Vickie was so helpful and accommodating! She worked to meet my needs still thru it all and I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone!

  • Debbie and Vickie were awesome. The wedding turned out so beautiful and went so smoothly. The set up outside for the ceremony was nice and could fit up to 100 people. For the reception we had it in the bigger room and it was just beautiful the food was delicious everyone enjoyed and had a great time. The budget was perfect. I can’t thank them enough for how great the wedding turned out.

  • I can not say enough wonderful things about Bayside Banquets!! I was so frustrated with the planning process but the day we met with Mrs. Vickie, I knew we found our perfect place for our wedding reception! The food was fabulous...from appetizers to buffet. The decor was absolutely beautiful!! Bayside did a wonderful job with everything and the best part was the affordability!! If you are looking for a beautiful venue for your wedding reception (or any celebration) look no further than Bayside Banquets! You will NOT be disappointed. Thank you Mrs. Vickie, Patti and Tom for making our special day even more special than we could have imagined!

  • My fiancé and I were extremely happy with the way our wedding turned out. Bayside Banquets is a beautiful venue especially upstairs. Their picture they post on their personal Facebook and website doesn’t do this place justice. The food was extremely delish most guest went back for seconds. The planning process was easy and stress free. We opted out of a rehearsal and Deb was able to run through moments before and directed us where to go. Both Vicki and Deb are extremely professional. I love when people care about you! They do not over sell you! I totally recommend Bayside Banquets

  • Vickie and Deb were great to work with! Extremely budget friendly, easy to reach and very flexible with meetings and payments. They were very reassuring and fixed any small situations encountered as the planning process can always be tricky and consuming. They went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect by even gifting us our toast. They are an amazing all inclusive venue and have so much to offer. Dinner was a hit, everyone loved the buffet! Vickie also did a great job of sharing pictures of our special day and got an amazing shot of our cake and my dad and I. Thank you so much once again!

    Thank you Stephanie. It was so much fun being a part of yours and Michael's beautiful Wedding day and all the planning that went into it! It was such an emotional ceremony and your first dances - oh my - you had both Debbie and I in tears! We wish you two the very best married life has to offer, and please stop in to visit us when you come to the beach to vacation! Vickie P.

    Thank you Kym. I am sorry I missed seeing you and Tim arrive and enjoy your reception! When I can, I love seeing my couples all giddy and happy on their Wedding day. I think the favorite part was watching your friends struggle to blow up all those huge floats, them busting into fits of laughter! I think they drew a collective sigh of relief when the electric pump finally arrived! We at Bayside Banquets wish everything good in life as you and Tim embark on your life-long adventure! Vickie P.

  • My son recently got married in Pass-A-Grille. We are from out of state and had to go by reviews to choose a reception site for approximately 25 people. We chose Silas and we’re ecstatic we did. We worked with Vicky beforehand to plan it all. She was extremely accommodating to our wants and wishes. We chose to have it on the Tiki deck and it turned out fabulous. We had brought a lot of decorations, favors, etc., and Debbie assured us they would put them out for us. Arrived from the wedding to see it decorated beyond our wildest expectations, including gorgeous centerpieces that belonged to Silas. We had a hot hors d'oeuvres table set up for guests as they arrived, plated dinner with soup and salad, and the ice cream sundae bar along with the wedding cake. It was all delicious and the sundae bar was a lot of fun. We had open bar and the waitresses did a phenomenal job keeping up with it. Kudos to the chefs and bartender also. All in all I would give everyone there and the establishment... Read more

  • Prior to wedding: When planning my reception, getting into contact with the event manager Vickie was very easy and she was always very cordial, informative, and quick. I booked this venue right away because of the fantastic value and great amenities such as linens, centerpieces, plates, and silverware being included. I initially booked the Pine Key lodge. When visiting the reception, I realized that for our wedding, the Long Key Lodge would best suit our visions. The event manager, Vickie, took it upon herself to help make this possible. Unfortunately, there was a birthday party tentatively scheduled in the Long Key Lodge on the same date. Vickie contacted the birthday party and asked if they would change their date for our wedding. They said yes and everyone came away happy! We are so thankful for the hard work that they have shown so far, and we haven't even had our wedding yet! Update: The day before the wedding we went to set up the table numbers and escort cards and I was ECS... Read more

  • The overall experience wasn’t bad. Our biggest issues were the day before the wedding when we went, the elevator had a weird smell and we tried to leave something in it to help and Mrs. Vicki told us we couldn’t. The morning of the wedding when my sister and a friend went to finalize things, some of the white tablecloths had stains and when they pointed them out and asked her to change them, she wasn’t happy about it. The biggest issue was during the reception when I saw people drinking water, my maid of honor asked why and I told her they said they’d have sweet tea, Mrs. Vicki said she didn’t say that but they have sodas behind the bar and people had to ask for them. By that time most people had had already ate, but the maid of honor and best man offered to pay some $, that’s when someone ran out and got 1 gallon of sweet tea and lemonade. I tried to get it announced on the microphone but they didn’t want me to, because it wasn’t a lot, but they were charging $2/cup fo... Read more

    Hello Novelyn! Since you and Jameel have been married for 8 months now I hope you are thoroughly enjoying it! It was our pleasure hosting your Wedding reception in the Long Key on 8/10/2019. I am so sorry to hear that you and Jameel were disappointed with some aspects of your reception. I honestly was not the person you spoke with about an air freshener for the elevator or the table cloths, so I don't know anything about that. This is the first I am hearing of it! I am going to guess that they were in fact changed since you mention how beautiful everything looked! I am also sorry if there was a miscommunication about serving sweet tea and lemonade. Because those are not part of the package price and not kept in house we always charge an additional fee - applied to the total guest count - but because it was not part of your final balance I can only surmise it was decided not to have it. Our package always includes complementary sodas for guests if even a cash bar is utilized. While a product may cost X amount there are always some hard costs involved as well, which is why the fee may seem unfair, but I can guarantee we don't take advantage of anyone. I am also so sorry that you were disappointed with our buffet. Based on the many wonderful reviews on both my Bayside Banquets facebook page and on Wedding wire page our food is usually always a favorite! If we fell short in your eyes I am truly sorry. We will always strive to use any criticism to improve some aspect of our service! In addressing your disappointment in the appetizers being all gone, please know this is actually more the rule than the exception - appetizers are usually all gone by the time our couples finally arrive from taking those last pictures on the beach; we do not portion them out and after about 45 minutes they are devoured ( especially our two shrimp appetizers!) We also do not allow any food take out as a standard across the board practice for health safety reasons - except any leftover wedding cake of course! I am delighted you thought the room looked beautiful. We always want it to be that way for our couples! I am also very happy you enjoyed your reception with all of your friends and family celebrating your love! May many blessings come your way.

  • I was married on 7/21/2018 on Sunset Beach I then chose Silas Steakhouse for my reception area. I chose the upstairs room which was a great choice! It was spacious and clean. I had no issues that night the staff was great always asking if we needed anything and many times complimenting me on my dress. The food was excellent (I recommend the salmon) everyone was talking about how good the food was not once did I hear anyone say they didn't like the food. When I first set this all up I had a lot of questions, I probably drove Vickie crazy! But she was very understanding and quick to respond back to all my questions. We had a great time and I would definitely recommend Sila's Steakhouse for your reception or larger party. Thank you all at Silas for making my night memorable! Ella Barnett

  • This is a fantastic reception vendor. We had our wedding reception at the Pine Key Lodge, the smaller banquet room and it was wonderful. They have the process down to a science, which makes it very easy for out of state celebrations! My vision with the decorations and set-up was followed to a T and the food was absolutely incredible. You get a lot of value for a very reasonable price!
