  • Me and my husband just got married at the end of April!! When we first called to schedule an appointment the women Danielle was super polite and helpful! When we got there and meet with Michael we were sold!! His personality not only made you feel so welcomed but also as though he may be more excited about your wedding then you are!! Our ceremony from start to finish went off with out a hitch. We are so glad we choose windows on the lake!

  • Definitely book an appointment for a tour. Michael was so very accommodating and personable, and definitely worked with us to get help us get the best value. He took the time out of a very busy Sunday to meet with us a second time, an hour before a wedding and with plates of penne alla vodka, which is really what sold us. We're so excited to have our wedding here, especially for the delicious food, and to be able to work with Michael and the rest of the wonderful people of the venue.

  • Every venue should welcome people the way Michael and his family greet everyone- by first name basis, with water, a dish of warm, delicious penne a la vodka and garlic bread! After we toured the 1 floor facility (very important if you had seniors in your party that have trouble walking stairs), we went through the menu options and numbers. He provided very reasonable quotes for different dates, since we were more flexible. You can tell he really loved his job and that he really wanted to take care of us. I appreciated all the little extras (lechon, cotton candy machine, and more) and assurance was one of the reasons why WOTL was one of our top choices. The view of the lake was gorgeous + the beautiful main hall + best thing is that he shared that the carpet will be taken out and replaced with new all wooden floors + Michael's hospitality was a great combination and we placed our $1k deposit that day! We ultimately decided on another venue this weekend when I realized how important it w... Read more

  • The minute we walked in we were greated kindly by Michael. His love for what he does showed as he took the time to get to know us before he began to share the beautiful venue. We sat down to look at pictures and discuss the menu options. Next we were pleasantly surprised with a taste of food that the venue can provide. Needless to say it was delicious and it gave us some insight of what to expect for the wedding. Michael continued to impress us with his hospitality and the banquet hall itself. We toured both venues and we were astonished with both views. We decided on their Beach Estate because it will fit our smaller sized wedding. We fell in love with the place!!! Both managers Michael and Frank made us feel like we are family the moment we stepped in. We are so excited to have our wedding at The Beach Estate on Lake Ronkonkoma! Thank you to everyone at Windows on the Lake for making the tour and wedding process stress free and exciting! Thank you Michael, Sara & Scott

Can't wait to see you soon....Michael :)

  • I just had my wedding at WOTL last week and am still speechless at the superb level of service we experienced. From the initial meeting through to the actual wedding day, Michael, Danielle, Anthony, Frank and Maria were an amazing team to work with. The way each one of them went out of their way to provide us with the perfect wedding day brings tears to my eyes. I cannot thank them enough for helping us make our dream wedding come true. There was no problems too big or small. My bridal attendant Sabrina was AMAZING! She was right by my side all night, making sure our day was everything we dreamed of. This venue is very detail oriented and really take great care to give you their very best level of service. Thank you Windows on the Lake staff. We will never forget how you all went above and beyond to make our day perfect!!!

  • From the moment we walked in the staff has always welcomed us. Frank and Janet have been most generous and kind to both me and my fiance. They have been patient and helpful during this process. It has been a pleasure working with them thus far and we are excited to have our wedding at windows on the lake!

  • So, my fiancé and I went here to get a tour of the venue before we booked our wedding. Michael and frank are too of the friendliest, most generous caterers you could ask for!! Not only did we get a tour of the entire ground but they gave us a delicious dinner, they went over pricing, they offered us a date, and they dropped the pricing on nearly everything! We were definitely impressed with how family oriented and courteous they were. Thank you michael And frank! -Marisa and chris herrmann

  • We just booked our wedding reception at Windows on the Lake and we are so excited for our special day! Frank has been wonderful every step of the way and we can already tell that he will go that extra mile to ensure that our day is nothing less than perfect. He is extremely professional and very quick to respond to us with any questions we may have. The venue is beautiful even in the winter, so we can't wait to see it in the summer. We're getting married this July 2017 and I have confidence that we'll be back to write a glowing review.

  • We got married at Windows on the Lake 2 weeks ago. I was nervous about the weather but was constantly reassured by the staff that it would work out. Frank was a pleasure to work with and was always available to answer our questions. Sabrina and Jonathan were wonderful the day of. They were constantly making sure we were happy and made everything perfect throughout our entire wedding. Sabrina also helped me clean the bottom of my gown when it got dirty during picture taking. The ceremony was lovely! Frank wrote such a beautiful ceremony for us. The only downfall was the microphone broke so the people sitting on the back couldn't hear everything. Our cocktail hour was superb! The reception was fabulous and we had the absolute best time! It was spectacular and we never had to worry about anything, it was all taken care of. The food was great and the staff was excellent!

  • You really get the bang for your buck at Windows on the Lake. They have an outdoor patio for cocktail hour which is great. On the day of my wedding it started to rain a little before we got there so we weren't able to use the patio. What made me feel so at ease with WOTL is that I knew if it rained, I still have a fabulous room inside that is for cocktail hour. Your guests still overlook the water and it's beautiful. So you have that reassurance if it rains. Right before I got married they actually added some new touches - new chairs in the ballroom, flowers in the main entryway, flowers in other places; it looks really elegant. The main ballroom is spectacular. My SO and I loved the room. the high ceiling over the dance floor makes the room appear bigger and it's painted so beautifully. The chandeliers are so pretty. The guests commented to my mom how the food was so good. Their penne ala vodka is so delicious! I am gluten free and they were more than accommodating with that. Al... Read more

  • My fiancé and I booked this venue for our big day this past April for February 4th 2018. We fell in love with the place right away and thought it would be perfect for a winter wedding. Frank was very kind to us and we felt very comfortable booking. We even got an exclusive winter only package that came with all of our vendors, which was a huge relief for us! We didn't realize until the end of August that our date (which has importance to us) was actually super bowl Sunday. I called frank and we went back to the hall to change the time from an evening wedding to a day wedding to avoid any issues. When we got there Frank couldn't find our file, but we filled out the change of time paper work and he assured me everything was fine and the file would be found. I also had written down a few questions for him about possible add ons and ect. but when I went to ask he avoided all of my questions and told me he recently hired a in house wedding coordinator who would call me to set up an appoint...

This fell short of our expectations and for that we humbly want to reach out to you and ask that you give us a call and we would at minimum like to offer you something to redeem ourselves. Please contact Michael directly!! Thank you and may you have a wonderful Journey together!!

  • There were a few hiccups during the planning stages (i didnt care for the invitations that they had but they were happy to take them out of the package and they dont do tastings of the Entree choices) in the end we had a great day! The food was amazing and our guests were having a great time, also we used the in house vendors and they all did a great job! Less than 2 weeks later and we have our proofs from our Photographer.

    Rachel...First...We would like to thank you so much for taking the time to give us your feedback as of course this is what helps us get better and better at what we do each day. My apology that the invitations were not up to your expectation but I am so glad that you were OVERALL satisfied with everything else. We wish you both the very best!!

  • The staff was very rude to my family and they had traveled across the country to attend our wedding. It was a disorganized mess and an overall miserable experience. Certainly not a memory that I want to carry with me for the rest of her life but I do not have a choice at this point. These reviews must be from contracted review companies whom post fake reviews and artificially pump them up because we had a far different experience. Don’t make the same mistake we did. There have to be better options out there because this turned into an absolute nightmare.
