I need more information - how many people, area, how budget per person? Any preference for time of year?

Good luck, Mark

You might want to check out the Three Village Inn in Stony Brook (I know you said Port Jeff but its not much further west). I don't know of their minimums but I'd guess from the size of their facility, they could accomodate smaller weddings. I think the Country House in SB might also be a good bet....(though I'm not quiet sure about the DJ). In PJ....try Harbor Hills (might be a little pricey but off season may have discounts)....and, believe it or not, try Harbor Gates on Main Street. My company had its holiday party there 3 years in a row on a friday night. They shut the place down for us from 6 - 10pm. They have dj booth, dance floor - the food was really good and i think they were within your price range. I was initially skeptical of the place but was pleasantly surprised.....

A little off the beaten path...I think the Museums at Stony Brook might let you reserve their catering facilities for a nominal fee. You'd have to hire a caterer. I'd suggest Elegant Eating. Very good food though order for more than your amount. the servings are not typically generous

I wish you all the best (its not easy, i know). Let me know how you make out. :)

We are actually thinking about New Years Eve or New Years Day. We'll probably have about 50 people and we're not really too concerned with location...anywhere from Montauk to Port Jeff. Thanks for the help!!

I am looking for the exact same thing... A few places have been recommended to me, such as Harbor Hills C.C. in Port Jeff and Three Village Inn in Stony Brook, but I think those may be a little expensive. Someplace that I am going to look into is Giorgio's in Baiting Hollow. I went to a dinner there for work and it was very nice, the room was a perfect size for about 50 people and it's right on a golf course. Let me know if you find any other places... Thanks!!

Thanks so much for your help... I really appreciate the suggestions!! I was thinking about The Three Village Inn, and I love the Country House, but I think that may be too expensive. Thanks again, and let me know if you hear of anything else. Stacy

I'm wondering if the price would be higher on New Years Eve b/c most places have parties and sell couple packages. In order for it to be cost beneficial to the caterer, they'd have to charge you at least what they'd charge per tix for the New YEars Bash in order to not lose money.

I like the idea of New Years Day though - such a wonderful way to start the new year! : )

Good luck!

Yes, I was thinking the same thing, and I don't like the idea of guests having to drive home on New Years Eve, so maybe something late afternoon/early evening on New Years Day.

Thanks for your help!!

You might still want to get a price quote from them. I thought the same thing about a place by me - Caffe on the Green. Very high end rest. so I expected their catering to be outlandish. My cousin convinced me to check.....

Turned out that they were competitive w/Leonards of Great Neck AND I would have been the only wedding that day - opposed to being 1 of many.

And if you are looking for January, many places will give you anywhere from 10-20% discount on their normal prices. So what was once out of your reach can be very affordable.
