“We had a wonderful rehearsal dinner at the Stonington Yacht Club in May. Dwayne was extremely accommodating and was very flexible on making changes to the menu as well as selecting what wines to serve. We had a dinner buffet that included scallops, filet, salads, vegetables, etc. along with an appetizer display and dessert. Everything about the venue was great, there were views of the ocean, the tables were decorated, and the venue itself was very accessible. All of our guests were very impressed with the dinner and the service at the Yacht Club. We are from Stonington but are not members of the Yacht Club. It was a great start to our wedding weekend and I can’t recommend this venue enough for parties/events. We hope to utilize the venue for additional functions in the future!” by Kristine S

"We held our reception at the SHYC on May 12th. We could not be more pleased. We worked closely with the club steward, Dewayne Kyle, who was incredibly kind, helpful and flexible. The whole staff worked hard to accommodate all of our specific requests. We had about 130 guests total. We used the club for all food, tables, decorations, etc. Everything was perfect. Food was delicious, service was quick and the club looked just like we wanted. If you're having your wedding in the Stonington/Mystic area, we highly recommend the SHYC."

"I was commodore at Pequot Yacht Club in Southport, CT, from 2011-2013, and only hope that the staff at our club are as hospitable to our visiting yachtsmen as Katie and Ursula were to us.  I am so grateful for their care.  SHYC will continue to be a favorite stop on our annual cruise!"

"Commodore Bowman,  not only do I have many years in customer facing sales I am also a Past Commodore. So, when I say that you have a team of very talented people representing your club I speak from experience. I  also hope that this is just the beginning of a strong reciprocal relationship between our two clubs.  I will make sure  that everyone at my club as well as the cruising clubs that I visit know of Stonington Harbor and the outstanding job you do.You should all be proud to lead a club that can attract staff of this caliber.  Good job all!"

"SHYC officers and staff...  your crew did such an awesome job accommodating the East Greenwich Yacht Club on very short notice. Your kitchen staff was awesome, your bartender deserves a raise. We had such a great time. We will be back. Thank you again for your efforts, and btw, your facility is beautiful."
