I just had My wedding at the club , it was a delight to deal with all the staff from Michael to Theresa and all the crew , the DJ was oustanding and played all the songs we asked for . The Photographer did an incredible job he even sent us some sepia and black and white photos.
The food was top notch and served HOT .
on my recommendation my company has its Christmas party there as well this past December . again they did an outstanding job, the flaming beef was a real treat and an incredible start to yet another great event at East bay , I highly recommend them for any event.

The coordinator, officiant, meat cutter all in one is a recipe for disaster and like the previous reviewer this guy did not care at all about what the family wanted for the wedding. My brother the groom, asked me to be his photographer - as I did my other brother's weddings and friend's weddings as well as his engagement pictures. The photographer who showed up working for "free" completely sabotaged every good shot and every specific shot I needed. He completely took over a wedding he was not supposed to shoot. My brother even told him during pictures "hey man my sister is doing the pictures" and he responded with "well I'll get the professional ones and then she can do whatever". He literally took over every set up shot after the ceremony and pushed myself and the videographer out of the way. If you are reading this Jerry Lukas, good luck finding any clients willing to hire such a prick of a photographer. You literally stepped on my feet while I was in a dress and dress shoes for MY BROTHERS wedding when he asked me to be his photographer - you told him you would stay out of the way and you completely disregarded that. Jerry Lukas stepped on my foot, backed into me - as a man over 6ft tall stepping on a woman 5'3" you would think he would apologize, but no he didnt. The mother of the bride was sitting right there as I was trying to take pictures of my brother and his wife doing the sand ceremony when he stepped on me, she had to say "hey hey hey" to which he didn't respond and just turned around like a prick and walked away. The mother of the bride told me "I saw that" and I had to say yea, he's been doing that all night. My brother paid for the videographer who was great, and the "free photographer who wasn't supposed to be there" kept telling him and I to get out of his light and move. He stepped right in front of me knowing I was set up to take pictures of the cake cutting - literally moved in front of me and reposed them. He stepped in front of me again while they were dancing. So East Bay CC you better get your act straight and your vendors. You completely screwed up. 1. You need to have enough food for everyone and how about making it edible. 2. Don't run the wedding like its yours, listen to your clients or at least give them a chance to be clear and open with what they want. I highly recommend any brides looking to do a wedding here choose somewhere else. Choose a vendor and have your wedding day the way you want it, not the way someone else is directing it to be. The bartender was great as well as the wait staff. The coordinator and Jerry Lukas were ridiculous. Cutting corners like you do only hurts your business. Now if only I could figure out how to get this imposing photographer out of my pictures that would be great! From the pissed off sister of the groom - good luck in any future endeavors. This is what you deserve for ruining my last brothers wedding for me! And update your venue, it smells like an old 80s Legion hall.

TF your review for someone else's wedding is quite novel . We ask that you please get your facts in line . The Photographer "Jerry" does not work for East Bay, he was independently picked by the bride not us , so to put this review on our site is somewhat unfair . I thank you for saying the staff and bartender were great , but the rest of your review should be directed towards the contractor picked by the bride .
.

The venue itself is beautiful but needs some definite updating and redecorating. Michael, the "wedding coordinator", "minister", and "meat cutter" leaves a lot to be desired. Yes, you heard right he does way too much instead of focusing on the couple. He wants everything his way even though its your wedding day. My bridesmaids simply tried to hide an arrangement behind a table because I did not like it and he snatched it out of their hands. He is very inconsiderate and will agree to something at a meeting only to later say he never agreed to it. If you do go with them get EVERYTHING in writing at your first meeting and make him sign it. East Bay should really look into someone else to run their wedding business because he is bringing them down. They need to update their decorations or make them a little less tacky. A lot of it is "included" but we had to make our own because they were ugly. I can say though that the wait staff and Teresa are divine and deserve to keep their job.

Britni, as you know we did not charge you for the $300 flower arrangement that your bridesmaids smashed . We do put everything in writing in our finalization meeting , including room plans , menus, time schedule everything .

DO NOT HAVE A WEDDING CEREMONY OR RECEPTION AT THIS VENUE! I had my reception at this venue and they ruined my wedding night. The room was completely set up wrong. There were not enough chairs at each table, the cake was wrong, the bartender was horrible, the centerpieces that we were promised were not there and the overall service was absolutely horrible. I have filed a dispute with the BBB and am trying to get my money back for the reception that they ruined!

Misty we were some what amazed to see this review after you gave us such a great glowing one the day after , yes now a month later everything seams to have changed . You did after all redo the entire seating arrangement we had planned out at the finalization meeting the week before with your Fiance as you did not attend it . Luckily we were able to completely reset the whole room prior to any guests arriving . The Centerpieces were on the table as your own pictures proved , the cake was not from us so I cannot comment. I must agree with the better business bureau on their findings , that you were out of line considering your initial great review.
.

I recently attended a wedding at East Bay CC and it was magnificent. The outdoor gazebo and view is breathtaking. The dj was outstanding and the food was fantastic. I would highly recommend this establishment to anyone looking for a romantic wedding.

PROS: Beautiful place, great services
CONS: Nothing
