Here is what people have to say about their experience at The Brookside Club.

A lovely venue! Frank and Andy were so helpful and supportive throughout the entire wedding planning process. They were very accommodating to our needs and to our budget. The wedding ceremony and reception were extremely well organized - we were in great hands with the Brookside team! Katie and Andy 8.29.15 wedding

We picked Brookside as our reception site for our wedding in May and must say that they were incredible. Great space, beautiful views, and food so good that guests still bring it up to us months later (seriously, get the mini beef wellingtons).

But the absolute BEST feature of Brookside is the service that they provide. We had a disaster come up the day before our wedding which made it borderline impossible to use our original ceremony site. We were able, with a little less than 24 hours notice, to move our ceremony to Brookside which also happens to have a beautiful ceremony site overlooking the golf course. Every service provider for the ceremony had to be contacted and Brookside assured us that they would take care of everything. They called all of the service providers for us to organize the change. When the chair rental provider could not be contacted, someone from Brookside physically went down to the original ceremony site to wait for them and redirected them to the new location. On the day of the wedding, Brookside helped out with ceremony and everything went off great.

Heroics aside, Brookside was accommodating and straightforward throughout the entire process. Honestly, we wish that we could give them more stars.

Book the Brookside for your wedding!

We could not be happier that we went with The Brookside for our August wedding. We looked at a lot of pricier venues closer to the ocean but none of them compared to the expertise, convenience, and beauty of the Brookside. Andy & Frank were amazing to work with from day one. All other coordinators could not compare, which is a huge reason why we booked this venue. They responded to all e-mails and phone calls immediately and answered any questions/crazy requests we had. We had our ceremony outside under the tent on the golf course and cocktail hour/reception on the deck and inside the club. The weather was iffy but Frank & Andy were prepared for any chance of rain or thunderstorms (thankfully there were none, but we weren’t worried either way!)I don’t even remember seeing them during the reception because they stayed in the background to make sure everything was perfect. Our guests kept telling us all night how beautiful the venue was and still rave about their meals. We opted for a buffet with a roast beef carving station and everything was delicious! If you want to get in beach pictures like we did I suggest you do a first look at Hen Cove in Pocasset, only 10 min away from Brookside. The Brookside has beautiful views of Buzzards Bay but it is not walkable to the beach. The golf course is in impeccable shape (although we may have irrigated it with our heels!) and our pictures from the site are gorgeous. We honestly can not say enough good things about this venue! I guarantee you won’t regret having your wedding at the Brookside!

A wonderful wedding!

My husband and I were so thrilled with the Brookside Club. All of the wedding planners were helpful and responsive and made our day absolutely perfect. The venue speaks for itself when you visit there with its stunning golf course views and sunsets. We can’t wait to get our pictures back to get another glimpse of our truly wonderful wedding day!

Amazing Cape Cod Wedding

The Brookside was everything we wanted and more. From the first time we went to see the venue and meet with the staff they were great. They work as a team to handle all the planning and there was never any miscommunication between them or with us. the location is great, and the venue itself is beautiful. We did our ceremony outside and did our reception inside and it was perfect. We had around 130 people and it did not seem crowded at all. Frank and Andy really seemed to know all of the other vendors that we were using which made things even easier that day.

We met a few times to go over all the details of the wedding, which was great because they walk you through every little thing that you need to know or do for the day of. They also get back to you right away via email with any random questions you may have.

We did our pictures there beforehand which made the cocktail hour and wedding more enjoyable for the entire wedding party.

They have an awesome deck that overlooks Onset Bay and the tree line of the golf course. Most of our guests made their way out there right before sunset (which is an amazing sight there) and we took a ton of pictures around that time.

The wedding staff was great. They made sure that we knew our dinner was served and catered to everyone’s needs.
The food was PHENOMENAL. We did upgrade our meat to the tenderloin and everyone loved it. It was well worth it. The bar service was also great. They handled everything perfectly. We did an open bar for cocktail hour, wine service for dinner and then beer and wine for the wedding party. Not one question throughout the entire thing.

Amy took care of a lot in the service end of things. Turned out I messed up one of our wedding signs and she fixed it and I never even knew about it. Exactly what you want for the day of your wedding.

From when we arrived at the venue Andy was our planner for the day. He made sure everyone was where they needed to be throughout the entire day and night. He timed the ceremony, set us up for pictures, got everyone ready for announcements and so on.

I would recommend this venue to anyone who wants a wedding on the Cape and doesn’t want to pay a ridiculous amount for their wedding. The staff is great and the place is great.

Dear Brookside,

Just want to let you know what a great job you guys did for Vanessa and
Scott’s wedding on July 11th. The food was excellent, the service was great
and the venue was beautiful. We were very pleased and appreciated all the
work and effort you put in to making it a very special day. Our guests had a
great time and loved the place. It exceeded our expectations.

Thanks again,

Dear Brookside,

We just want to tell you again how much we appreciated your and your staff’s help and hospitality with yesterday’s Bastille Day celebration (July 14, 2015). It all came off beautifully, without a hitch, and that was thanks to your excellent planning and support for all that we requested and needed, as well as for things we didn’t even know we needed! You were great! We also hope that you will relay our thanks to the chef and his or her staff. We had many favorable comments about the meal, especially about the baked Brie, which was outstanding…..and, coming from a crowd of French people, that’s a compliment indeed!

Take care, and we hope to be see you all again soon.

“Best Wedding Ever!”  That’s what everyone kept saying, that night and even two weeks later, “Best Wedding Ever!”

It couldn’t have been more perfect.

1.)The communication throughout the whole process is EXCELLENT. So excellent that at the rehearsal dinner you really don’t even have anything left to talk about it.

2.)The food is delicious. Great Quality. Plenty of appetizers delivered to all the guests.

3.) Organized! If you are like me you need to feel organized. Well they basically do it for you. Again down to every detail. They don’t miss a thing. Whether it was during the planning process, practicing at the rehearsal, or the night of the wedding.

4.) Staff: WONDERFUL. From the teenagers at their summer jobs to Andy and Frank the bosses. Couldn’t be happier and more satisfied. They are friendly, quick, work hard and remember all requests.

5.) Venue itself: PERFECT SETTING! You can see the ocean, can’t beat that. Picture taking is perfect. The wrap around porch of the room is just icing on the cake. Not to mention everything is CLEAN!

I hope I didn’t forget anything. But all in all seriously from a Brides point of view it is a no brainer. You will be 100% satisfied!

While looking at venues for our wedding on the Cape I was realizing how expensive everything was. I finally came across The Brookside Club and loved the pictures. My husband and I went to check it out in person and were very surprised. Great location and the venue was beautiful! The Brookside Club was very affordable.

During the entire planning process the event team were nothing but patient and informative! Frank kept us up to date the entire way. We had the best time at our wedding on June 12, 2015. The day went perfect, the food was amazing, and they even allowed us to bring an antique fire engine for the ceremony and pictures! It was more than what I imagined.

The venue overlooks the golf course with Onset Bay in the distance with gorgeous sunsets. Our wedding guests loved The Brookside! They loved how cozy it was and loved the food. The staff were more than professional and made sure everyone was taken care of. I have recommended The Brookside Club to many friends and family. I truly can’t say enough about The Brookside. We are so happy we picked them for our wedding. We’re planning on trying out their Sunset Grille this summer as well!

Perfect Wedding Day !

When in the process of booking our wedding venue, we visited The Brookside Club first. After that, we visited one other venue, not sure why we did, as it was a complete waste of time. There was absolutely no comparison on what was offered. From the moment we first saw The Brookside Club, we loved it. It was beautiful, clean and offered stunning scenic views. But, beyond that they offered exceptional service that far exceeded any expectations that we had. From the first meeting until the moment the wedding ended, everything was perfectly planned and executed. The wedding coordinators are truly amazing at what they do and flawlessly achieve everything they say they will. Working with them made our lives so much easier. We always knew what was going to happen, when it would happen and if we had questions, they had answers.

We were lucky to have had perfect weather for the day of our wedding and that was the only thing that The Brookside Club could not promise. The first time that I walked into the reception area on our wedding day, I was blown away with how perfect everything looked, it was exactly what I had envisioned. The food was incredible; we still have friends talking about how good it was! The staff was friendly and accommodating and our bartender was amazing and provided laughs for many of our guests. There is not one thing that we would change about our wedding day and if we had to do it all again, we would choose The Brookside Club.

Dear Jen and Frank,

I want to thank you for your wonderful hospitality at my retirement party.  The room is beautiful, the food and service were wonderful.  I have to been to several functions at The Brookside Club and have always been impressed with the experience.  It was a great party!

Best Wishes and Many Thanks,

Jun 23, 2015

The Brookside Club and the wedding/events team were incredible to work with from start to finish. They are so organized and helpful which is what put them at the top of my list after our very first meeting. In addition to the planning help, the location is just beautiful overlooking the golf course with the ocean and Cape Cod Canal in the view as well - and a sunset if the weather cooperates! It makes for gorgeous photos. The balcony is a great place for cocktail hour and at night is lit up with pretty white lights under the awning! And the pricing was so reasonable compared to the majority of other places I looked - without taking away from great food!!

Quality food and numerous choices at reasonable prices - what more could you want? Also worth noting, our reception followed closely after a golf event held at the Club earlier in the day - and you would have never even known anything else was going on. They flipped the room over without a hitch and all our decorations and set up were exactly as we asked - I really couldn’t have asked for a better venue for the most important, special and fun day of our lives!!

We highly recommend the Brookside Club and wouldn’t hesitate to book another important event there in the future. I’m sure we’ll be back just to dine at the Sunset Grille!

I can not say enough great things about the Brookside Club. From the staff to the food. ..the coordinators to the grounds.’s all simply amazing. The staff is professional and thorough while still being fun & friendly. They are incredibly helpful & organized. The food is delicious. The sunset from the deck is fabulous. The staff are all spot-on. The venue is beautiful. There is a price range for every couple’s budget.

Our wedding day was PERFECT. Not many brides can say that. And the entire Brookside staff played a HUGE part in that perfection.
We plan to be back there for dinner on our first Anniversary next year.

May 9th, 2015 wedding

May 20, 2015

I was married in April of 2015 and everything was wonderful! My husband and I decided on this venue because it’s gorgeous inside and outside. The view of the golf course and ocean is breathtaking. And the sunsets are one of the best on the Cape. Inside the venue, the décor is neutral to meet every bride’s needs.

The team of people that work together, go above and beyond to make sure that everything is right and take the stress off of us! Frank and Andy were always prompt about communicating and answering all of my silly little questions. They are very organized and know exactly what they are doing. Before booking The Brookside, I looked at several other venues. A lot of the other venues on the Cape have more than one wedding a day, or even some going on at the same time, prices were outrageous, and they didn’t seem very organized. This was not the case at The Brookside. Meeting with Frank and Andy, I knew immediately that I would be in good hands. I also had many, many family and friends highly recommend them. I will certainly do the same.

Thanks for making my special day truly a special day I will never forget.

Thank you so much for all the hard work and efforts that went into making the perfect night for us! We know we had some “unique” requests, and we appreciate everything you did to make it happen! It was flawless!

We will make sure we spread the word on our experience and I am sure we will be back!

I just wanted to tell you how wonderful our event was. The food was absolutely perfect. Everyone was so impressed, and I also wanted you to know how much we appreciated your respect and courtesy towards us in such a hard time. My husband, for whom this event was planned, would have loved it. We were there often with my parents in the past, and have loved your venue and your food for many years.

Please pass on my comments to the staff and the chef. We were truly wowed by the whole thing.
Meredith H. 11/8/14 memorial reception

Oct 28, 2014

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 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 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!

Ally and Tyler 10/4/14 wedding

Oct 28, 2014

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!

Sarah and Jason 9/20/14 wedding

Oct 28, 2014

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.

Jaime and Juan 6/28/14 wedding

Oct 28, 2014

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.

Heather and Jack 9/13/14 wedding

Oct 28, 2014

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.

Thanks and here’s to looking ahead to next year!

Dear Brookside Club,

A heartfelt thanks to your wedding/event staff that helped to make our daughter’s special day absolutely wonderful.

The waitstaff were kind, gracious and helpful.  Andy was superb.  He kept the even flowing in an efficient, unobtrusive manner.  He was wonderful to work with.

The food at The Brookside Club speaks for itself and was one of the reasons we chose The Brookside venue.  Thank you again for your outstanding service.

We cannot fully express to you how pleased we were with the wedding on Sunday.  How did you make the sun come out at the end of the ceremony?

Seriously, our guests have not yet stopped raving about the beautiful venue, the extraordinary service and the fabulous food.  Your attention to detail was remarkable and because of that, we were free to enjoy the day and not worry about a thing.  You wonderful to work with, patient and always smiling.

The wedding was a huge success and we would not hesitate to recommend The Brookside Club to anyone and everyone.

Dear Andy,

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!

Aug 25, 2012

Frank and Andy,

Just wanted to send a quick note expressing our appreciation. Saturday was wonderful! The food, the staff, and entire day was just perfect. Thank you for all your work over the last several months.

I cannot tell you how much it means to the both of us!

Just wanted to say thank you very much for a wonderful luncheon you provided for my family and friends after my father’s burial at the National Cemetary at Bourne.

Thanks very much.

Thank you for the efforts of you and your staff for the bereavement gathering held on behalf of Auciello Iron Works for David Drummond last Tuesday, July 3rd.

Thanks again and enjoy the rest of the season,

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

Dear Frank

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!

Kindest thanks,
Nicole & Patrick McDowell

Thanks again,

Dear Frank,

I just wanted to take a moment to tell you that I was more than pleased with my daughter Shannon’s wedding reception.

Hi Frank,

I just wanted to send a little note to say thank you so much for helping us with the party arrangements and making the night go perfectly without skipping a beat. 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.

Warmest Regards,
Wendy and Robby Connors

My family and I want to thank you for the wonderful service and food you provided at my father’s memorial celebration.  It was a difficult time for us all, and you made the celebration simple and easy for my family.  It was truly poignant that we had the celebration at the Brookside Club, as that was where my father golfed with his sons, his grandson and his friends.

Thank you so much,

I’ve been meaning to get this email out to you sooner…I apologize….the honeymoon was great and just trying to get back into reality!

But I would like to thank you all for making our wedding day so special!  We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day!  From the day we chose The Brookside Club we knew that everything was going to run smoothly and that we would not have anything to worry about.  All of you played a huge role in our day and you can see that with the end result.  From the rehearsal, to the ceremony, and to the reception, it was all just perfect! You definitely know how to make a bride and the groom feel so special!  We have nothing but the best to say about The Brookside Club and would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in having their wedding there. Can’t say enough great things about you guys and The Brookside Club.

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.

Hi Melissa!

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!

Much love,

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.

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.

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.

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.

Dear Frank,

“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.

Best wishes,
Diane Scott

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!

Yours truly,

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!

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!

How can we ever thank you and your staff enough for such a wonderful evening. Melissa and your entire staff were great! Having the buffet out on the deck was great, and the compliments on the food were nonstop. Everyone had such a nice time, they hated to see the night end. I look forward to working with you again in December!

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!

Hi Frank,

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,
Caitlin and Ryan MacDonald,

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!

Dear Mr. Falcone,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for the service and attention that we received on March 15, 2007, during a small luncheon held after my father’s funeral.  I was born in Taunton and frequently visit the Cape, but was unfamiliar with your restaurant. It was recommended that I try to arrange for a small luncheon after the burial services at Otis Air Force base. I stopped in one day as the golf course and restaurant were just closing. Your staff took the time to drop everything and help me to make arrangements. On the day of the funeral, we arrived and were greeted at the front door, shown directly to the room which was beautiful, and subsequently had all our needs met. You and Mack made sure that the food was served and the bar was taken care of without any follow-up from me. We were never rushed, the food was outstanding, and everyone treated us with respect and kindness.  It was a perfect ending to a rather hectic and emotional day. Again, I want to express my appreciation to your entire staff but especially to you and Mack who made the extra effort to see that everything went smoothly. I plan to stop by the next time we are visiting to enjoy your restaurant and try out the golf course. My Aunt, who lives in Wings Neck, was very impressed and plans to tell all her friends about the outstanding service we received at The Brookside Club.

My sincerest thanks,
Jeffrey W. Maynard

Dear Frank,

As we recall the events of 2006, our daughter Amanda’s wedding at the Brookside Club on July 29th was certainly the highlight of the year for us. The wedding was wonderful from the casual elegance of the beautiful setting to the excellent service and delicious food. Throughout the event, Sean and your staff were gracious, professional, and efficient. Our guests had a great time and continue to share with us many compliments regarding the fine food and polished service of the Brookside Club staff. If you wish, we would be pleased to serve as a reference to any couple considering the Brookside Club for their wedding. Thank you to Sean, your wonderful chef, the rest of your staff, and you for helping us create such a memorable wedding day for Amanda and Kevin.

Dear Frank and the entire staff at Brookside,

We couldn’t let another day go by without expressing how absolutely thrilled we were with our wedding celebration at Brookside. Our closest friends and loved ones still rave about the entire thing - from the cocktail reception on the balcony to the amazing food to the very classic New England decor. Sean and Jenny made planning the event - which can be a very stressful experience - a breeze. The staff was always smiling, professional and extremely accommodating. It was an amazing time - what a fabulous way to start our life together!

Thanks again for everything you did for us on our most important day,

Dear Frank, Sean, Jenny and the entire staff of The Brookside Club,

“Wonderful Tonight”, the title of the song that we chose for our special wedding dance, probably best describes our wedding experience at The Brookside Club. The food was superb, the view of the sunset was gorgeous and the staff was very friendly and extremely attentive. All of these factors together made our wedding at The Brookside Club a truly wonderful event. We heartily recommend The Brookside Club to any couple who wants to ensure that their wedding is a beautiful and memorable experience.

Dear Frank,

I just wanted to thank you and your staff for taking such good care of everything for my daughter’s bridal shower. Your staff was very professional and accommodating. Sean greeted us with a cheerful smile and offered to help unload things from the car. He went out of his way to make sure the guests were well taken care of. Chef Dana’s culinary talents were very much appreciated! Both Sean and Dan helped create a very comfortable atmosphere for us to share time with family and friends. Kelly, whom we met a few weeks ago and wasn’t assigned to our function, even took the time to ask how everything was. It’s difficult to find a function facility that has everything; clean and attractive atmosphere, friendly and professional staff and excellent food and service. I believe with the new Brookside Club you have achieved all those qualities.

The food was amazing and the decor enchanting. Everyone had a great time, and your efforts certainly made the party that much brighter for all of us. Thank you again for everything.
