Growing up on the Cape I came to recognize at an early age just how expensive weddings on Cape could be. And of course when I got engaged in July of 2013, I knew how difficult it would be to plan my wedding. After looking into multiple venues on Cape, that offered the Cape Cod feel to guests from out of state, I realized that many of the venues I was looking at would pretty much consume my entire wedding budget. I had been looking on the Knot.com for months trying to find a venue that offered a great value, seated meals (that wouldn’t cost an arm and a leg per person) and an ambiance that added an intimate and romantic feel to my guests. I saw Brookside on Knot.com and saw their prices and services, and knew I had to check it out.
So, I called The Brookside to schedule an appointment with my Fiancé to get an overview on costs and services, and was not expecting to put money down. A big reason being that I am notorious for being indecisive, although I was extremely intrigued by their prices on the website. After having arranged a meeting with Frank at the Brookside, he sat us down and explained all the services, and for someone like me who had no idea what to expect for a wedding let alone my own, he reassured us that everything will be perfect and not one detail will be overlooked. Well that day I put a down payment on the Brookside, and can honestly say that it was the best decision I made for planning my wedding. Frank and his staff at the Brookside were informed, professional, and beyond helpful in assisting me with any questions I had come across. When it came to the big day, the venue was breath taking, they transformed a room I had come to visit many times into my wedding reception. The staff was attentive, the food was delicious, and the room looked amazing. I was extremely pleased.
I would recommend Brookside for a wedding venue to couples who want a Cape Cod wedding with a view and location, and do not want to spend astronomical amounts to achieve this. The Brookside Club was affordable, and maintained a sense of class and professionalism that I did not think I would achieve with my budget. Thank you to the staff at Brookside for making my wedding so special!

I had to plan my wedding at the Brookside Club from across the country. So I never really got to see the venue, taste the food, or experience anything myself until I walked in for my wedding reception and I was totally blown away! All the planning up to the big day was made easy by Frank and Andy, our coordinators from the Brookside Club. They made great recommendations for timing and how the night will flow, and they were very easy to work with.
Having never seen the venue in person other than on the website, I was blown away with the outside view, it was picture perfect, we were even lucky enough to get an amazing sunset view. The food was amazing, the presentation of the food and how they cut and served our cake was fabulous. Frank and Andy work with you the entire time, and being so far away they were very accommodating and answered all my emails in a timely manner, usually the same day. I made all my own decorations (within the Brookside Club’s guidelines) and Frank and Andy and their team put everything out exactly how I had planned for them too. My husband and I added uplighting through our dj vender and it really made the reception room shine and created a great ambiance for after the sunset. There is also a great deck area to see the view, again sooo beautiful.
The service was great, food was hot, drinks were flowing, and all my family and friends had a great time. We had about 100 guests and it really filled the room, I was worried the room would look empty because the room can certainly hold more but they spread the tables just enough so it didn’t look empty at all. My wedding day was truly the best day of my life and my reception was better than I could ever have imagined. Thank you Brookside Club! Highly recommend this venue for a fair priced, beautiful Cape Cod reception!

It still gives me chills to look back on our wedding day & the Brookside club (specifically Andy & Frank) are to thank for this. From start to finish we felt welcomed with open arms at the Brookside Club. The day of our wedding could not have gone more smoothly - the food was delicious (even our guests commented on our food being some of the best food they had at a wedding), our tent was like a magical space transformed beyond our wildest dreams, and my husband and I wanted for nothing. The staff were friendly, fun, and efficient, and the service was truly exceptional. And then, there’s the sunset… breathtakingly beautiful.
The Brookside is a beautifully, exceptionally maintained property that provides top of the line service. The experience starts at the door and is wonderful all the way through. This is a true reflection of the management; it was an absolute pleasure to work with both Andy and Frank. They guided us all the way through the wedding planning process and did everything possible to help us make the day our dream come true with a budget we felt comfortable with.
I recommend the Brookside club without hesitation and with full confidence that if you choose to have your wedding here, it will be a decision you are thankful for making every time you think back to one of the most important days of your life.

We were married at the Brookside Club 9-13-14 and have been dreading writing a review or thank you note because to me that means the wedding is officially over, although it’s been over for months!
We had such a wonderful wedding there, I loved meeting with Frank during our initial meeting because he was very open and honest about what could and could not be done. He did not want to make any ‘half promises’ if he knew it wouldn’t work out and that is exactly what we wanted.
Going into our detail meeting with Andy I felt very overwhelmed with what was left to be done, I left feeling the exact opposite. They literally take care of everything-only the details (place cards, guestbook, centerpieces, cake) are up to you. I left the meeting with a short specific list and was able to cross things off day by day. They really eased any nerves I had.
The guests said that the food and staff were wonderful, to be honest I did not interact with any staff but Frank and Andy that day, but the guests said they were great. The view from the balcony for cocktail hour is beautiful and the tent looked gorgeous overlooking the canal, even in the rain!
We arrived pretty much as the cocktail hour was ending, but Frank and Andy had the staff bring us apps and drinks on the front porch which was great! We were able to take a few minutes to eat and breath and drink, they had Shirley Temples for the kids and a heaping mound of giant shrimp, we were in heaven!
Honestly, overall, I would not have changed my venue. These guys did exactly what they said they would do, they are very professional and I felt like they truly cared about our wedding being perfect. They were fun to work with and really dug into every detail.
If you are looking for a wonderful place to get married, where the staff is professional, the views are beautiful, the food is excellent, and people constantly say to you ‘I heard your wedding was awesome, what was the name of the venue again?’ you’ve found it.

We got married at the Brookside Club on August 8, 2014. Frank, Andy and the events team provided an excellent experience from the initial planning meeting to the day of the wedding. We had very specific requests throughout the planning process that were met every time. Frank really went above and beyond to adapt and to ensure that our wedding day was perfect for us and all of our guests. Great service, food, venue and you can’t beat the sunset! Would absolutely recommend this event’s team and venue for a wedding or any occasion.

My husband and I instantly fell in love with this venue. The views are beautiful. The sunset on the night of our wedding was to die for. Our friends and family won’t stop raving about how great of a location. The staff is excellent. They are always there to answer any questions. The prices are reasonable. The food was great as well. We couldn’t have been happier with the whole experience!

We had our ceremony and reception at The Brookside Club. I can’t imagine a more breathtaking location! Everything leading up to the wedding was handled so well by Andy, he went over everything so well, things we hadn’t thought about etc. He made a perfect celebration for us! Everybody at Brookside made us and our guests very comfortable, the atmosphere of the employees was so nice and refreshing, everyone was at ease with this alternative wedding and the wonderful attitude of Brookside!

We had our Wedding reception here in May. It was truly amazing. From the first time we walked in to view the reception space we were sold.
Frank and Andy made us feel at ease. The process was seamless which helped extremely as planning a wedding is beyond stressful.
The day of the wedding I was hoping all would be perfect. To be honest it was beyond what I imagined. The lighting, center pieces and setup was beyond words. Ooh and the food was the icing on the cake. It was delicious. I had an extreme amount of compliments on the entrees. You truly can not go wrong with The Brookside Club from the views to the management to the food. I would recommend this venue over and over again. It was such a beautiful start to our Marriage thank you.

Frank, Andy and Casey were amazing to work with and we couldn’t have planned our wedding without them. They PROMPTLY respond to all emails which made it easy to coordinate and get our questions answered in less than 24 hours. From our first meeting with Frank, we knew they would be the perfect venue. We met with Frank several times throughout the planning process and he had everything down to the detail. He really listened to our needs and went above and beyond to make the day special for us.
The wedding day was PERFECTLY executed with Andy running the show. We enjoyed every minute of our wedding and didn’t want it to end. We were not worried about anything on our wedding day because we knew The Brookside team had everything covered.
Thank you for hosting the best day of our lives.

Frank, Andy, Amy, and all the wonderful staff at Brookside,
We cannot even begin to tell you how grateful we are of your service. The day Jason and I sat down with Frank for a tour we knew this was the perfect venue for us. Andy and Amy, the day of the wedding you were all so calm and helpful and it helped us remain calm and confident everything would go fine. We were able to trust that you would make our day special, but you all, kitchen staff, servers and all others included, went so above and beyond we can’t thank you enough.
You should know we got so many compliments on the venue and the food. The sunset was breathtaking. The day before I started getting a little nervous that something might go wrong, and I remember saying “the staff at Brookside know exactly what we want and I am confident they will make our wishes come true”. It was just perfect. Up until 10:30pm when one of your male staff members offered to bring things to our car. Just amazing customer service.

Ben and I would like to send you and the rest of The Brookside crew a huge thank you!! Our wedding was absolutely amazing. It was everything we had been dreaming of and more.
You made the event so easy and fun for us and set all of my worries at ease!! Thank you for being so wonderful for not making a big deal about us having no alcohol at the wedding too. That really meant so much to us.
I would recommend that anyone work with The Brookside Club because you are all so professional and easy to deal with. We will never forget you. Thank you for answering our late-night phone calls and for the pump-up speech before walking the aisle!
All our love,
Ben and Ashley Hamel
**Ashley’s online review! ***
I just had my August 3 wedding at the Brookside Club in Bourne and it was absolutely wonderful! It was the first venue that I saw, and immediately I fell in love! I worked mostly with Andy and there are not enough great things that I can say about him and the rest of the team. Everyone was so nice and professional but they still managed to keep a very fun atmosphere for us. I was SO nervous on the day of the wedding, but Andy was able to completely put me at ease. Kim approached me a few times during the reception to make sure that everything was going well and to check to see if there was anything she could do to make our night better. In all honesty, NOTHING could have been improved. I loved the venue, but most of all I loved working with Andy, Kim, and Frank. Our day was flawless because of this team! I would recommend that anyone who is searching for that perfect venue condsider the Brookside Club! They are all so wonderful!

Hi, Frank and Andrew,
I just want to say thank you for helping us with the post funeral lunch at Sunset Grille yesterday. It was a beautiful day, and we had 19 people join us after the interment ceremony at the National Cemetery. Andrew greeted us when we arrived, and was ready for us. The wait staff did an excellent job pouring wine, and helping us to make selections and the kitchen did a fabulous job with our choices. Everyone had an amazing meal, and a lot of fun. It was lovely to be able to wind down after the funeral. The staff were respectful and offered their condolences, while making us very comfortable and insuring that our needs were met.
Thank you so much for making our lunch such a lovely experience for all of us. I know that many of us who live in the area will be coming back to Brookside soon. You all did a wonderful job and we appreciate it.
Our best regards,
Kate & Tom

I just wanted to send an email out thanking you for all of your help making my wedding day amazing! All of the guests had a wonderful time and everything turned out even better than I had imagined. The food was so delicious—I received so many comments about how well the tenderloin was cooked—“just melted in your mouth!” and how well organized the reception went - bringing out hors d’oeuvres to the wedding party while we took photos. The golf course was the perfect backdrop for wedding photos and the sunset we had was just breathtaking!
Thank you for all of your help, you assisted in making our wedding both memorable and stress free!

When I think about that night I just smile because when I looked around everyone was so happy. The family was so impressed, especially Robby’s grandmother. She loved the food and your delicious white sauce!! Compliments are still coming in. You and your staff did a wonderful job. Robby and I, and the entire family were just sad the night had to end. I hope that in the very near future I will be calling you again for another family celebration.
Wishing you a very successful season.

I just wanted to send you a quick note to thank your husband (Frank) for all his support during Stanley’s Memorial at The Brookside Club. He was so kind and supportive. It was such a difficult time for me. I just wanted everything to go perfectly for Stanley and thanks to Frank, it did…I will be forever grateful.
Hope to see you soon,

I just wanted to thank you for such a wonderful send off for our dear friend and co-worker Dave Lauretto.
Everything was just perfect! The wait staff was awesome, the table settings were just lovely and how you managed that sunset, I’ll never know but you really out did yourselves!
I look forward to calling you and the Brookside Staff again for our next function.
Thanks Andrew-you are the best!

I just played golf and had dinner at the Brookside yesterday! We played in the afternoon and then had dinner and watched the sunset from the patio. Both my husband and I think you are a hidden gem and will be sure to tell all our friends! What a beautiful spot you have for weddings.
Have a great day,

Last evening was fantastic. The food was great and the service was excellent. Thank you for the space- the sunset was unbelievable!
We will be booking our future Board events there.

Hi Frank and Melissa,
So sorry this email is a long time coming. We have been so busy since we got home from Mexico. We would like to thank you so much for all your help and making our day ever so wonderful. Everyone is still talking about what a amazing place The Brookside is and the food was spectacular. We had a wonderful and stress free wedding and we owe a great deal of thanks to you both. Considering it was a little stressful due to the huge amount of construction traffic, thank you for being ever so patient with the guests and DJ. We look forward to coming back on our one year anniversary.
Thank you again, we had a wonderful time.

I want to thank you so very much for making our wedding on 10-10-10, such a wonderful memory!! You did such a wonderful job making sure all the details were in place. Your waitstaff and bartender are to be commended on the excellent job they all did. They were all very polite and made sure that everything went smoothly.
Hats off to the chef and the kitchen staff as well. The appetizers were fabulous and the meals were out of this world!! So many of our guests commented on how wonderful their food was. Everything was cooked hot, to perfection and so delicious! A few of our friends didn’t even know that The Brookside existed and a few have been back for dinner at The Sunset Grille, and were extremely happy that they did! What a hidden GEM!!
I can’t thank you enough, Melissa, for all your help with the planning of such a special day. You were available at anytime that I needed and I so appreciate your professionalism, courtesy and thoughtfulness. You have a very difficult job which demands so much of your time and you always did so with your warm, caring smile. You are one in a million and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you did to make our special day, just that! Thank you too for ordering that gorgeous sunset!! It was amazing!!
Looking forward to seeing you again!

I just wanted to thank you for all your help in the planning process for our wedding and also making everything run so smoothly the day of. Every time I turned around you were there doing one thing or another - you must have been exhausted when it ended. Our guests still rave about the food and the beautiful grounds of the Brookside, and we couldn’t be happier we chose to have our wedding there. Thanks again for everything!

I just wanted to thank you again for the spectacular job you and your staff did for my daughter’s wedding. From you and Frank, the bartenders, the wait staff, and everyone else who had a part in the day, I can not say enough. Everyone was so accommodating; I have had many calls from family and friends who can not stop talking about the beautiful grounds, great food, and the perfect day. I would recommend the Brookside club to anyone without question.

We had our wedding at The Brookside Club in Bourne, MA and it was amazing. We were concerned about the weather because it was a misty day, but it worked out fine. The view was beautiful. We received many compliments on the place. The food was fabulous. My family and I have made comments about how we have found a new spot to go and have dinner. Frank and Melissa were extremely helpful and made our day stress free. Everything was wonderful. We could not have asked for anything more.

Dear Melissa and Frank,
Where do we begin? It would be impossible to thank you both enough for our amazing wedding at The Brookside Club. Of course, the facility itself is beautiful. But the care, patience and attention to detail of you and your entire staff are what make a wedding at Brookside an event to remember. Our guests are still praising the food, ambiance, views and hospitality. You were both such a pleasure to work with throughout our planning experience. Thank you for all of the compromises when I got an idea stuck in my head, and for surprising my new husband with a much appreciated cheeseburger for dinner! We hope loved ones in the future will be lucky and wise enough to host their weddings at The Brookside Club, so we can once again enjoy its elegant charm.

Hi Frank and Melissa,
I want to thank you both for just a beautiful wedding. Everyone I’ve talked with had such a wonderful time. The food was delicious. It was such a gorgeous night and everything looked beautiful. Many people were complimenting us on the setting, and the view was magnificent. We were so lucky to have mother nature shine on Kellie and Mark. Kellie and Mark were so happy and their table location was perfect. I will recommend you to anyone who is ever getting married on the Cape.
Once again, thanks,

Dear Frank and Melissa,
THANK YOU SO MUCH!! Everything was perfect for our daughter’s wedding this past September 5th. My husband has DJ’ed and I have videotaped thousands of weddings all over New England in the last 25 years, and Kristen & Aaron’s wedding was the best ever!! Of course it helped that the weather was perfect and the sunset breath-taking, but it was so much more than that…Working with both of you and your entire staff was a pleasure. Everyone was friendly, helpful and professional, the food was excellent, and the room and grounds looked absolutely beautiful! Your kindness to our professional vendors, who are also our friends, was most appreciated. This was the first wedding in both families, and very special for us to be the parents of the bride. I will never forget how pretty the ceremony was-and the view! I have been meaning to write for weeks now but have had trouble coming up with the right words to describe how great everything was without sounding ridiculous! I’m sure Kristen will be thanking you herself, as she did most of the planning, but I really wanted to thank you and your entire staff on behalf of Ron and myself for making it so special.

“Absolutley perfect” would be the words we’d use to describe our daughter’s wedding at The Brookside Club! If anyone is looking for ‘quintessential” Cape Cod, with wonderful service and food, along with a casual, yet elegant atmosphere, and last but not least, spectacular views, this is the location. You fulfilled absolutely every promise and your attention to detail was remarkable. We asked for three different favors to be placed in very particular locations, and it was done to perfection. (Nice job, Melissa!) From the moment we walked in, we were greeted by you personally and offered drinks and a platter of goodies. Our guests equally relayed the friendliness of your staff and how well prepared they were when over 100 people descended upon them. We send our sincere thanks to you and to your staff for all your fine work and for making our special event so memorable.

Dear Frank and Melissa,
Our wedding last Saturday evening was a most blessed event. EVERYTHING worked beautifully. Compliments were abundant about the wedding site, the food, service and the details. We would recommend The Brookside Club and your expertise to anyone planning a Cape Cod event. You both were a pleasure to work with and we, as the parents, can’t thank you enough for all you did to make Jen and Ryan’s wedding day so memorable. We send our heartfelt thanks to you both and to your staff who made this day!

Dear Melissa, Frank and the rest of The Brookside Club staff,
We can’t thank you enough for making our day so perfect! You helped make sure that the best day of our lives was wonderful in every way. Frank, meeting with you before our wedding was always a pleasure. Your attention to detail and relaxed approach made the planning so easy and enjoyable. Melissa, you were truly a bride’s best friend on the big day and during the rehearsal. You took care of all the little things (and big things) still on my mind that day and helped keep me relaxed and calm. The whole staff took such great care of us and all of our guests. Everyone was so friendly and accommodating. You all made our wedding just perfect! Many of our guests have said that this was one of the best weddings they have ever been to and we couldn’t agree more. Thanks again!

Dear Mr. Falcone,
This note is to thank you so very much for the “perfect luncheon” in honor of Ruth Clegg’s 100th birthday. I liked your thoroughness of detail in every part of the celebration from beginning to end. The location was wonderful (in front of the fireplace)-23 delicious luncheons were served. Our waitress was so good and pleasant that I was amazed that she was able to handle that many people so well. Thank you for making this a happy, happy birthday! Even the photographer came and took many pictures, one of which appeared in The Bourne Enterprise the following Friday. You have a 5 Star restaurant at The Brookside Club!

Sorry that it has taken me a month to get this to you, but better late than never. I just wanted to say thank you so very much for everything you and your staff did for our wedding. Ryan and I could not have asked for better service. When we first began looking at reception places, the Brookside Club stood out because of its unbelievable service and attention to detail. On June 27th, even though a not so sunny day, you made everything wonderful. The food was amazing and the setting spectacular! All of our friends and families commented on everything and how wonderful the Brookside Club was. They kept telling us that it was the perfect place to enjoy the Cape and good friends. We are so happy that we chose the Brookside Club to celebrate our very special day! Thank you so much again. Please make sure to thank Melissa for keeping me calm. Enjoy the summer and I am sure that we will be back for lunch, brunch, and dinner.
Thank you again,

Dear Mr. Falcone,
My family and I would like to thank you for the exemplary service provided by you and all the staff at The Brookside Club during all phases of our wedding. Weddings are extremely stressful, but with your help, it was planned efficiently and helped relieve us of many stressful tasks. At no time did we feel pressured or hurried and I have received many compliments from friends and family on how courteous your staff was. My vendors also commented on how accommodating the club was to their needs. We really appreciate all your hard work. Thank you again.

The Brookside Club Management,
I would like to thank you for the terrific service on 04/25/08 at the Bastoni/Holland wedding reception. I work at many venues every week and always point out true excellence. Your staff was incredible at taking care of the clients’ needs. I wanted to point out in particular Frank & Melissa who were extremely helpful. Your bartender and waitstaff should also be recognized as being very professional. It is always our goal to work at venues such as yours where the goal is your clients’ complete satisfaction. This could not have been more evident than at your facility.
Thank you and I hope to work with you again in the future.

We are the parents of Daniel Geagan who was married on November 3, 2007 to Elizabeth Argent-Belcher with the wedding reception held at your facility. It was a memorable day as you may recall. Near hurricane winds caused widespread power outages. In spite of this ‘minor’ inconvenience, you and your staff performed to perfection, providing fine food enhanced by candlelight. Your foresight in utilizing the generator capabilities available to you ensured the occasion was a pleasurable and special event despite nature’s intrusion.

I just wanted to say thank you again for making our wedding the perfect day! It was so nice to not have to worry about ANYTHING! There wasn’t one thing you weren’t all over, making sure it was happening and happening right! Over the last year, so many people heard me talk about “My Frank”, I think they were beginning to wonder….Thank you also for being so great to my mom! She never stopped talking about the great customer service you provided! Please be assured, I will continue to recommend The Brookside Club to anyone who is looking for a beautiful place to have an event. Even more importantly, a place where you are treated as if you are the only event they have all year!
Thanks again for everything!
