We celebrated our Golden Wedding Anniversary with a reception and dinner for family and friends at Bishops Bay in August 2015. The event manager and executive chef were most helpful in planning all details of the event with us, including not only menu options, but also flowers and arrangement of the dining room. The food was well prepared with excellent presentation. Our guests commented on how much they enjoyed not only the dinner, but the overall experience of celebrating this milestone event with us at Bishops Bay.

The West High Class of 1965 booked their second Class Reunion with Bishops Bay this past July. We had such a good experience the first time we knew we wanted to book with them again. Not only is the venue gorgeous on a summer evening but the food was superb and everyone that we came in contact with from the wait staff to the bartenders to the manager they were all so helpful and accommodating. The evening went without one glitch!

We had our rehearsal dinner, ceremony, and reception at Bishops and we thought everything went off without a hitch. The staff was very friendly and everything was set up as we had planned. We liked the feel of the old Tudor building with the lake and Capitol backdrop. At the end of the night we took pictures on the pier at sunset which was really nice. Overall the whole experience went well and we got a good value.

The event staff at bishops bay was instrumental in making our wedding an enjoyable and memorable event. From the planning phase to day of execution, Janet, Brandon, and the rest of the team had our best interests in mind throughout. The attention to detail was fantastic, so much so that we cannot think of anything we’d have done differently. Having been members since 2011, we were really looking forward to having our wedding at our club as there’s not another venue like it in the area. The team truly lived up to the beauty of the setting and the food exceeded our expectations! We heard nothing but positive feedback from our family and friends…some of whom are tough critics! Thanks again to the team for all of their efforts.
