Great atmosphere with awesome people. Tie made sure our day went smoothly and truly made our wedding day magical. 5 stars isn’t enough!
Perfect end to summer!
Great place with a beautiful sunset.
Go at sunset for the best views in RI! 2 restaurants in 1. One at the pool and one at the golf course. Friendly staff and good food: burgers, grilled pizzas, salads, etc.
The food was great. The view terrific but waitstaff was absolutely the best!
Went to a wedding there - top notch all around. Best wedding food I have ever had! Beautiful place, attentive and unobtrusive staff, friendly and talented bartenders.
Wedding night. Appetizers were perfect. Salad and meal was perfectly timed after speeches. The meals were proportionate and so good that everyone at my table cleaned their plate, meat or chicken. Domenic your bartender busted his bottom for everyone and took care of anyone as he went along. Played 9 yesterday with wedding party the course was in great shape. Not too challenging but tactics come in to play as the holes are short with reasonable hazards and sand in play. Par and tackle accommodated everyone very quickly and food perfect for after the round. Couldn't be more pleased with our entire experience this weekend. More...
Love this place great food great place to hang out on a Saturday night. Specifically when alger mitchell plays
A real gem! Nice views of the bay in a relaxing setting. The food is good, the service is attentive, and the prices are reasonable. A wonderful experience.
The burgers and calamari were good. Seemed a little pricey for an open air restaurant but the view is wonderful. Servers were great.
Went to a wedding at Harbor Lights and it was fabulous from start to finish! Beautiful location on the water, excellent opportunities for incredible photography. The event area was nicely sectioned with cocktail area and main seating with plenty of room and views. Food was first rate. I had a stuffed chicken that was moist and tasty, not your typical rubber chicken fare. Appetizers were excellent. Staff was also great. Walter the bar tender was outstanding! Would love to go to another event here!!! More...
The tiki bar was a really nice spot to have lunch after 9 holes. We ordered chowder, cod cakes, salad w/ lobster, and a few drinks. Everything was delicious and the service was great. Excellent view also! Would definitely come back. More...
Beautiful venue and exceptional staff. The food is delicious.
Amazing wedding staff!
I was there for a wedding the food was good the service was a little very beautiful place for a wedding

Really a great place to enjoy an outdoor drink, food or desserts. Went there yesterday, had a great time, beautiful sunset. Awesome service at the Tiki bar / dining area. The only issue, we asked our server if we could move our chairs and smoke a cigar, he said yes, after we started our cigars, he comes back and said rules have changed, we need to move to the smoking section. UGH, cigars not cheap. We moved. Too bad, you should communicate the rules better. But a lovely place. More...

I really like this place. We discovered it recently while boating and now we go there on somewhat regular basis. Easy to dock there and the food is fun and good on the green. Wish you would answer your phone better. More...
My husband and I had our wedding at Harbor Lights in Oct of 2018, i can't put into words how perfect everything was!! Hannah and her staff are amazing and everything was super seamless !! If anything went wrong then I didn't know about it. The food the view the setting- it was perfect ! We couldn't have asked for a better venue or more attentive staff! We're looking forward to coming back this summer to sit by the pool and have some food + drinks !! More...
My husband and I were married at Harbor Lights a few weeks ago, and we could not have asked for a better venue. From the planning process to the rehearsal dinner to our actual wedding day, the team was there to answer our questions and give us guidance.
Our guests were impressed by the views for the ceremony and reception. We opted to have buckets of balls available for our guests to use the driving range during cocktail hour, which was a big hit.
Our family and friends are still raving about the food, especially the passed hors d'oeuvres (I would HIGHLY recommend the Fish and Chips- they will not disappoint)! We also included a Doughnut and Coffee Milk station for dessert, which they also enjoyed.
Overall, Harbor Lights is an amazing venue. They allowed us to host the wedding of our dreams- which our guests will be talking about for years to come. More...

This is for the Tiki Bar only. What I really want to do is give this one star so no one except a select few people visit... this way I will always have a seat at the bar, because once this gets out I can pretty much assume that finding a seat around the tiki bar will be damn near impossible. The views are spectacular, the staff are personable, friendly, and like to joke around with the regulars. I consider myself a regular, so please make sure I have a seat available when I show up. I'd appreciate it. This is a seasonal place, and for $20 you can grab a lounge chair and have access to the pool for the day. Theres a mix of older and younger people. Restrooms are clean, and stocked. The food comes off the food truck called the Tiki Truck. Tasty dishes for good prices, quick service. We had one issue with one of our dishes that the staff caught before we did, and promptly took care of us. (If you must know, we only received 5 clam cakes instead of 6!) There's a little something for all, from black bean burgers to fish tacos to clam cakes to salads. So would I recommend this place? Absolutely not, you'll hate it, I know you will, but if you must try somewhere really cool, and great, with a nice cool ocean breeze, just please make sure there are 2 empty seats waiting for me at the bar? Please? More...
I went there to visit some friends who were up from Florida. We got some drinks at the outdoor restaurant and bar called Par&Tackle.To start, the view is absolutely amazing. Looking out into the cove with the sun setting was absolutely breathtaking. The restaurant is right next to the golf course, but they have safety netting so no one is at risk.The bartenders there were really great, friendly, and didn't miss a beat. Even with the 20+ people at the bar, they knew my refill order without me even asking. They only had 4 beers on tap, all local brews, but it was fine for me.I did not order any food, but I looked over the menu. The food choices looked great, but is pretty pricey, although it is a country club so it wasn't surprising. My friend ordered one of their pizzas and said it was extremely good.I only gave it four stars because the restaurant is hard to find. It is behind the clubhouse, not visible from the parking lot. There is also no clear signs telling you where to go. Also, while not entirely their fault, we were getting eaten alive by bugs. It would have been better if they had tiki torches or something else to drive the bugs away. More...
Great time, food, drink & music.
We are so happy we chose Harbor Lights for our wedding this March! Jessica is the best and so sweet. She is accommodating and always responds quickly no matter my questions. The venue is beautiful and I know our day will be perfect with Jessica on our team! I was recently told by a friend who attended a wedding there that the food was delicious and the venue is so nice! I will update soon! More...
It was clean, the food was great and the employees were so attentive to our needs.
Can't beat the view...
Food is DELICIOUS, staff is GREAT, and the view is BEAUTIFUL... I recommend this place to ANYONE and EVERYONE...
Review for Par & Tackle only. My daughter and I stopped in for a quick bite and we were very pleased. Harbor lights is a massive complex with 9 holes of Golf and a Marina. Par & Tackle is a perfect sunny weather restaurant, its a Pergola type structure with a roof only and no walls (on sunny days at least). You enjoy wide open views of the water and the random golf foursome finishing up their round on the 9th hole. As for food, my daughter had the bacon cheeseburger which she really enjoyed (especially the fries) and I had chicken wings. Both were completely perfect - just what we expected and well priced. No alcholic beverages for us - we just had soda (free refills) and our total bill was $25. Definitely going to come back to try our more options! More...
My son & daughter had their wedding at Harbor Lights on December 2, 2018. Everything was wonderful! Beautiful venue
Loved it,great place to hold a function or party
I've heard that Harbor Lights is a hidden gem as far as Rhode Island wedding venues go, but I'm not sure how it can be. The facility is beautiful and elegant. The weather in April in New England is incredibly unpredictable, so while I liked that Harbor Lights had an outdoor space for the ceremony, it was also very important to me that that the entire wedding could be indoors if possible. It rained and that is what we ended up doing, but everything was beautiful and there were still a bunch of places where we could take photos safe from the rain. The food at Harbor Lights is delicious and I think high end for a wedding venue. During the planning process the folks in the events office were super responsive and helpful and the girls who were there on the day of the event were amazing. We did have a couple issues with the bar but we brought them up to the staff after the wedding and they were effectively resolved. I would highly recommend Harbor Lights! More...
Hard to get to in the snow but nice place, good lunch
This venue is breathtakingly beautiful! I photographed a wedding here in August and it was absolutely perfect!
Flexible to make your special day exactly what you want. Great value for coastal wedding. Marina right next to it brings your nautical theme to life!
Very pretty location. Does get cold on the water. Many expensive weddings are hosted here. There's a hall for dancing and there's plenty of room to roam away from the party. They offer a powder room for both bride and groom. Located in a quiet neighborhood, though it was also a little harder to find because of that fact. Give your guests directions. More...
Harbor Lights is a great place to be on a nice summer day. Start off by playing a round of golf on their 9 hole golf course. It is on the shorter side but well maintained and provides enough of a challenge for the average golfer. The one drawback of the course is drainage, the course will be very wet in the Spring.After the round, grab a drink and a snack at the Par and Tackle, their nice outside bar/restaurant. It has a mixture of arrangements from a nice bar and high tables, to couches and Adirondack chairs. The food is great and the prices are reasonable. Plus you have a lovely view of the water.It also has a nice event space inside and the few events I have been here for have always been well run with delicious food and attentive staff. Highly recommend this place once the weather gets nice! More...
When looking for the perfect venue, Harbor Lights hit all of our goals: the beautiful ceremony location overlooking the bay, the reception hall that has views of the water, and the price that fit in our budget with our expected guest numbers! The food was fantastic and well prepared! Hannah was our coordinator and she did such a wonderful job from the tour to the big day. When we had conflicts come up, Hannah was quick to respond back and more than willing to try to help us out. The team at Harbor Lights did more than enough to make sure that the day went smoothly especially when problems arose. All of our guests had nothing but great things to say about the location, the food, the sunset and the venue itself! We were even given a free game of golf the next day! We happily recommend Harbor Lights to anyone looking for that affordable venue by the water! More...
My niece's wedding shower was held there, good food, nice place, friendly staff.
Went here for a wedding. Atmosphere was gorgeous, food was great, and the staff was excellent.
Beautiful wedding venue. Terrific food brunch was delicious and food t wedding reception was excellent
Played the front nine golf course. Well manicured. Nice views of harbor. Venue well taken care of overall. Outdoor bar great for hanging out.
This is a wonderful venue that has good food for a decently sized crowd. It has wonderful views of Greenwich Bay. As well as the beautiful golf course that it abuts.
Beautiful, only complaint is there was not a coat room available during our visit which was a wedding.
Wedding OUTSTANDING everything!!¡!!!
Beautiful place with beautiful views
Amazing! There was so much attention to detail and they were ready to do anything to make you're dream day come true. The food was amazing and I had people coming up to us all night saying how perfect this place was. They really made you feel like it was family planning a party. More...
A lot of our friends told us that when it comes to finding the right venue you “just know”. While looking for venues we noticed that a lot of them had potential but we had to use a little imagination to really see it. We had started losing hope that it would be something “we just knew” and something we would have to figure out. When we got to Harbor Lights we finally had the feeling everyone talked about. We didn’t really need imagination, because the venue itself was beautiful in every way we needed it to be. It has an incredible ceremony spot, beautiful photo opportunities and a reception space that has a classy, clean presentation. For us, the greatest thing about Harbor Lights ended up being the staff. Hannah and the rest of the team were helpful and patient. We always looked forward to our meetings with Hannah because of her great personality, while also providing the reassurance and guidance we needed with some difficult decisions. The bartenders and wait staff were personable with our guests as well as attentive and professional. And we can’t forget to mention how incredible Chef Ray’s meals were. It is in our biased opinion, the greatest meal that we’ve ever had at a wedding. It seemed as though once our day started Harbor Lights took control and made sure we enjoyed ourselves as much as possible. We couldn’t be more thankful to every person there for making our wedding everything we could have dreamed of. More...
Incredible beautiful outdoor bars with a decent light fare menu for al fresco dining drinks are reasonably priced and great mudslides by the swimming pool at the Tiki Bar
Fun course, pleasant surroundings,Drinks and snacks at the Tiki Bar make for a nice round of golf and friends and family.
Nice views and great wedding venue. Only drawback is for women in high heels have to walk over rocks on driveway from parking lot. Should be able to drop off guests prior to parking. More...
My husband and I got married at Harbor Lights on 7/22/18. Jessica was amazing! She was given our wedding day to cover with only a few months to go and she could not have helped to make our day more amazing than we ever could have imagined! The weather did not cooperate with us to get married outside but the inside ceremony was more intimate. We decided on a first look and Jessica helped us get some beautiful pictures on the docks for that moment while the rain held off. The ballroom itself is already beautiful but everyone on staff makes it even more beautiful for the ceremony! They flipped the room so quickly for our reception during cocktail hour. We rented the driving range for the cocktail hour and it was a huge hit with our guests! Chef Ray Fiske is a food genius! I have been to weddings that the food is good but the meats cooked are dried out. THIS IS NOT THE CASE AT HARBOR LIGHTS! All of the meats, whether during cocktail hour or the reception dinner, were over the top good! We invited some people who are very picky about food and they are still talking about how good all of the food was. On top of it all tasting good, the portions are more than enough! Everyone left stuffed! When it comes to the bride and groom sometimes not getting to eat enough on their wedding day, they make sure that does NOT happen. During cocktail hour, because we were a part of it with the first look, we had a server come and find both of us with an entire plate of hors-d'oeuvres just for us. Also, during the reception, they make sure they keep your food warm until you are ready to eat it and make sure that you actually go to eat it. I will definitely recommend Harbor Lights to everyone I know for any type of function!! Thank you all for such an amazing wedding day.

Excellent ambiance. Located in the Warwick Neck section. A beautiful venue for your special event.
Of couyrse am going to love it my don't wedding is going to be there No kidding aside the place is very pretty with the bay and golf is offer too .
Love this place! Beautiful views of the water, great bars and the best mudslides around! Staff is wonderful.
Beautiful location. Food was good.
Nice course that won't cost an arm and leg
We golfed for the first time at HL last weekend. What a beautiful place, location and course. I totally loved it. I am a beginner golfer so don't have years of experience at various courses. I loved the range of distances, the upkeep of greens and the shade offered throughout the course. The staff was hepful and friendly. There is a cart driven by staff the offers drinks and snacks while you play- what a great thing. I highly recommend and will be back soon! More...
Great place for drinks with friends
Great place for a wedding
Great 9 hole course
Great place to golf, eat and have drinks. Awesome staff would highly recommend going.
Very classy,good and service wa outstanding!
Food views pool golf...not a cou try club..food truck..food incredible..absolutely love!!!!
Nice spot. Tucked away on the water
Went there for a work event. The place is beautiful and the staff was professional. Everyone loved it!
Harbor Lights made our special day perfect! Our wedding was on July 14th of this year and we cannot come up with anything we would change. Harbor Lights staff were amazing. They were polite, energetic, and happy to assist with whatever request thrown at them. Hannah and Barbara were amazing, calming, and flexible. My guest could not get over how beautiful the venue was as well as how delicious the food was. My husband and I rented the driving range for cocktail hour and it was a huge success. We cannot thank Harbor Lights enough for helping create such good memories. More...
Harbor Lights truly has that classic Rhode Island seaside feel that I really wanted for my wedding at a fraction of the price of comparable venues in Newport. I could say so many positive things- the outdoor ceremony area was stunning on the waterfront with their arbor; my guests had a blast on the driving range during cocktail hour; and the reception ballroom has gorgeous panoramic views and classy modern decor. The food was also AMAZING and I couldn't have been happier with the views for my pictures! My only few complaints were that there was noise from the pool/ tiki bar area that I could hear during the wedding ceremony (which was less than magical) and that sometimes the wedding staff seemed over worked/ spread thin and was not particularly responsive, adding stress to the wedding planning process particularly late in the game. This said, I would still chose Harbor Lights again and can definitely recommend. More...
The Par and Tackle al fresco dining venue is a great summer spot to enjoy a meal. We were fortunate enough to get a table on a Saturday night after a forty minute wait. Food prices were very reasonable considering the portion sizes served. From the moment we arrived, the good feelings emerged as the hostess was welcoming and pleasant. Our waiter, Jake, was tremendous as he advised us upon our requests as to what would suit my dietary needs and my husband's tastebuds. Jake was jovial, never once rushed us, and was very accurate. We began with the sticky crispy chicken wings which were mild and delicious, and yes, oh so sticky, but great! Salad wise, hubby and I split the very unique Tuscan Kale. It was outstanding with its tender pieces of kale, radishes, crisp butter beans, golden raisins, red onion, sunflower seeds, and just the right amount of a smooth honey-dijon dressing. Because we weren't at all rushed to order, we were able to continue to eat and ordered sandwiches. I ordered the "MeatBall Grindah" filled with bacon, cheese + tenderloin meatballs, in the house marinara which was very good. The Cove Burger comprised of applewood bacon, cheese , onion strings + 1000 Island dressing made my husband's evening so perfect! The menu indicated the cheese was pepperjack but his request for a substitution of cheddar was honored with no problem! And then, the sweet ending of the brownie sundae which was "sweet" in every way made it quite nice! What was even nicer and most admirable was the concern extended from the manager who checked in with me to be sure my dietary needs were met - that is unusual and greatly appreciated and leaves me with a huge smile and desire to return. More...
My wedding was everything I ever wanted and more! I seriously could not have been happier with the outcome. Only side note is I would definitely hire a day-off wedding coordinator, this venue has a high turnover rate regarding their even coordinators. I went through 3 in less than a year. Other than that - so awesome! More...
My husband and I were married at Harbor Lights on 12/09/17. I researched many reception venues in RI, MA and CT, looking for a beautiful location, with remarkable food and a reasonable cost. My husband and I chose a winter wedding at Harbor Lights after seeing the breathtaking grounds and meeting the very personable staff. From the moment we met Hannah Marshall, our wedding coordinator, she went over every single detail and put our minds at ease. From giving me advice, to answering every single email in a timely manner, to purchasing dairy free ice cream for me (food allergies), and fixing my bustle throughout the night....she made the night perfect. Hannah and the staff at Harbor Lights worked closely with our photographer, DJ and videographer, and their professionalism is unmatched in my opinion. It happened to snow a significant amount on the day of or wedding, and Hannah and the staff made the night safe for all of our guests. Our guests continue to to rave about the beauty of the venue, and the absolutely amazing food. The bar area and outside patio (with a fire pit!) added to the ambiance and gave our guests room to move around. Right down to the restrooms, Harbor Lights is impeccible and our wedding guests were comfortable and wowed. I truly cannot recommend Harbor Lights, and Hannah Marshall, highly enough to do justice to our experience and how pleased we were and are. More...
We could not have asked for a better place to get married. We enjoyed the whole experience and could not have asked for a better venue.
Harbor Lights was everything I wanted and more! I toured the venue about a year and a half out from the date of our big day. All of my emails were always answered. Although we worked with four different event coordinators throughout this time, the wedding day and night went off without a hitch. The food was delicious and I am still receiving compliments from my guests! More...
Very pretty location. Does get cold on the water. Lots of expensive weddings here.
I can't say enough good things about Harbor Lights. Our wedding coordinator, Cassy, was amazing to work with - she was organized, responsive, and made sure that all of our needs were taken care of. The day of our wedding, the entire staff was amazing to work with - my husband and I felt completely catered to. The food was AMAZING - both the entrees and appetizers. We received so many compliments from our guests.
Apart from the service, the venue is absolutely beautiful. The ceremony space on the lawn overlooking the ocean can NOT be beat. The ballroom and bar area are impeccably maintained, with windows looking out towards the ocean. It was everything we wanted an more. We were so thrilled with our decision to choose Harbor Lights! More...
We golfed for the first time at HL last weekend. What a beautiful place, location and course. I totally loved it. I am a beginner golfer so don't have years of experience at various courses.

Backyard gem in Warwick Neck! My only regret is that I didn't discover it sooner! No need to drive to E.G., Bristol or Newport! Open to the public! Restaurant, tiki bar, golf course and pool! Great infinity pool overlooking the water. From what I've been told, this summer they offered pool access at $20/day per person. Been to both the tiki bar and outdoor restaurant and both have great views. Awesome drinks...try the " no way, frose"! Sparkling rose frozen and absolutely delish!!! The hummus is very good and served with lots of pita and wontons to dip! Entertainment on the weekends. Stunning sunsets! What's not to love!? Only thing they could improve upon is the restroom at the outdoor restaurant. A Glade plug-in would go a long way! It's not a deal breaker but certainly a well-needed suggestion. So happy to have spotted this place and will definitely be back! More...
This is technically a review for "Par and Tackle" - the dining establishment that is part of Harbor Lights, but which is located under the roofed pavilion, beside the large, main building. We have not dined in the other Harbor Lights restaurant or Tiki Bar, but there doesn't seem to be a separate review section for just the Par & Tackle. harborlightsri.com/food/…That said - we absolutely love this place. Since we found it, my Honey and I have gone 5 times this summer! It is a gem! (I actually hesitated writing a review, because while we want the place to do well, we don't want it to do so well that we can't get a table anymore! ; )If you are a fan of al fresco dining, you need to check this place out. You get all the benefits of an outdoor venue, along with a distant water view, but with the shelter of a roof - and available clear, side curtains, should a driving rain roll in.Every food item we have had thus far has been awesome. We have had the Pt. Judith Calamari, Italian Sausage/Rabe Pizza (my husband has ordered this every time we've gone!), the Tuscan Kale Salad, Seaside Ruben Sandwich, RI Lobster Roll and the Chicken and Waffles. The absolute standouts are the Lobster Roll and Chix/Waffles. Portions are not super-sized, but neither are the prices. You get delicious food for what I would say are reasonable prices.The drink menu has a nice offering of specialty cocktails and I've tried several - none have disappointed. The wait staff is friendly and attentive.I just hope the summer lingers so we can get many more visits in before the cold weather is upon us. I think I heard they stay open through October and bring heaters in to keep the patrons comfortable when the temps drop, and while I'm the type who gets cold when it's 70 degrees out, we love the place enough that you might find me there anyway on some chilly October evening - sipping one of their Fall cocktails - albeit with my fingerless gloves on! More...
Great relaxing place. Golf, Marina, bar, snackbar. Great Event location.
I shot a wedding here. The entire facility is fantastic. The staff is great. Sunset over the water is a must see.
Absolutly beautiful view at the bar, salt water pool, just has a fantastic atmosphere
Great summer hangout. Beautiful views
Good food..great service...great view
Sara is wonderful to work with!! All the staff were super friendly and helped make my day perfect!! The venue is beautiful and the food is amazing!!
My husband and I could not have picked a more perfect wedding reception venue! The grounds are stunning, and we loved being able to take pictures right on the water. Katy Johnson, the Banquet Manager, is amazing to work with! Despite losing our wedding coordinator a month before our event, Katy ensured we had the same level customer service we had grown to expect. The staff is extremely professional and fun to work with! We loved that the wait staff joined our friends on the dance floor towards the end of the night. Our guests are all still raving about the food, which was outstanding! Harbor Lights is such a great value and we honestly can't recommend it enough. More...
My daughter just got married at Harbor Lights over Thanksgiving. The venue was spectacular and was only surpassed by the quality of the food and service. The staff was incredibly accommodating to our every request and went out of their way to make the day perfect. The grill room was the ideal spot for the pre-reception/social hour with some of the best hors d'oeuvres I have had at any reception. The main dinning room offer ample space for a good crowd and a great dance floor, all with spectacular views of the golf course and bay. This is not a cookie cutter wedding venue but a warm and welcoming place with all the amenities. I can honestly not think of a better place for a celebration. More...
THE PERFECT WEDDING VENUE. My husband, family & I cannot say enough about our experience with Harbor Lights. We just got married on Sept 3 2016 and it is scary how amazing and perfect everything was! Tiesha was our contact and she was born into her role! She was so accommodating and made us feel welcomed and we trusted her from the moment we met her. She truly saw to it that our day was flawless, and if there were any issues we would never know! Her entire staff was AWESOME. I wish we could have a wedding every year at Harbor Lights! Haha! Truly a day we will never forget and we cant thank you enough, Harbor Lights. You are truly a hidden gem :)
Love, Jenna & Michael Halse More...
Harbor Lights was the PERFECT venue for our May 7th wedding!!! Since all our guests were from out of town, we wanted to show them a "taste of Rhode Island" with an outdoor ceremony and indoor reception, and the space right next to the harbor/docks is absolutely gorgeous for the ceremony and pictures. HL also had the best rain "back-up plan" with plenty of room in the ballroom if necessary. We also wanted something newer and modern looking and didn't like any of the other RI venues because they were too traditional. We booked almost 2 years in advance (we had a long engagement) and got very lucky to negotiate a great price before this "newish" venue (name/management recently changed) got too popular. However, over the course of those 2 years, the management/staff changed 3 times and we were a little worried. Brie Dion ended up being our final Sales & Event Manager (and day-of coordinator), and she and the rest of the HL staff were absolutely fantastic and hopefully there to stay! Their new food and bar packages are also very reasonable, the food was amazing, and we feel like we got a great value for our money so it all worked out for the best. Book early, and I promise you won't regret having your wedding ceremony and/or reception here!!! More...
I haven't seen too many organizations in Rhode Island reinvest in their business as much as Harbor Lights Marina and Courty Club. Since my wife and I became marina members in June of 2012, we have witnessed construction of a beautiful infinity pool and tiki bar, renovation of the Cuntry Club and pro shop, addition of the new and innovative Par and Tackle restaurant, improvements to the golf course and much more. John McGovern and his team do a great job running the marina. While added amenities like the shutle and food cart make this one of the best spots on Narragansett Bay. The food and service at the Par and Tackle has improved 180 degrees over the last two years. The staff will fall all over you to make you happy. Cudos to Joel Noel and his entire team for continually making improvements to make our marina a destination for all. More...
Ate a lunch here with my parents this past weekend. They asked me to meet them here to check it out for a possible wedding venue for my lil sis in couple summers. I am the maid of honor and since my sister lived in Indiana right now I thought it would help her out if I saw it. I figured lunch at a country club was going to be stuffy and the food sub par. Well I was wrong. The best part was the service the young man handling the beautiful outdoor space on Saturday was just awesome, some of the best service I have had in a long time. The food was REALLY good, it would have gotten 5 stars if my Moscow Mule was up to par, but it was a little odd, I suggest getting some Fever Tree behind the bar tasted like ginger ale in there to me. On the other hand my parents drinks we very very well done! More...
I have been a marina member at harbor lights for many years, and I find the staff very attentive to our needs. I have seen earlier posts where people have complained about the staff in the office, which I have to truly disagree with. Karen, in particular, is more than helpful. I have never experienced any staff to be rude, or disrespectful. I am glad to see the marina is on top of keeping it a quiet and peaceful place. There have been reckless children that run the docks, steal golf carts, and endless screaming and splashing at the pool while their parents sit and ignore their unruly behavior. As a parent of 4 children, I would never allow my children to act that disrespectful in public places. I am glad to see the marina is proactive by getting rid of these disobedient and disrespectful members. More...
Harbor Lights.......there is no wonder you have captured every award known to the industry. From the moment we stepped into the venue a year and a half ago, we knew we found home. The amazing staff performed with such professionalism and direction it was a sight to see......not to mention their dancing skills!! The chef and kitchen staff.....totally shined......the set-up crew and everyone made us feel like they were not working, but presenting their individualism with every napkin they placed to the final clean up. The tremendous pace of the bar staff, keeping up with this group is no easy task, but you did it with such grace and honor, it was a pleasure to watch. The management, from Katie to Maggie, strong dedicated women who were so instrumental in the direction provided and insight given you two will be in our hearts for a very long time. Lastly but certainly not least, Tiesha Cole. For without you, our special day would have been just a day. You are an amazing women who stepped up to the challenge of putting together such a wonderful event it goes without saying you are possibly the best asset any facility could have. your never ending energy, matched by your desire for perfection showed at every task. From day one, you made us feel as friends and not paying customers. Each and every obstacle we put in front of you, you took it on and made it your own. Nothing we requested was not met with absolutely Bo/Clare, and then completed! Our event was spot on and we can not thank you enough. We consider you as family and look forward to what challenges we can set forth in front of you for our next event!! Thanks to all and to all our forever gratitude and affection........Bo & Clare Mathews More...
When they say expect the unexpected for your wedding, they are not kidding!! 6 hours before our tent wedding at Harbor Lights on what appeared to be a sunny day, tornado and severe thunderstorms were headed to hit our region. On that day, it was Katy and her crew that turned what could have been a disaster into what friends and family described as one of the most beautiful, intimate weddings. From being zipped around in a golf cart from one end of the place to another to grab as many pics as we could before the weather set in (although we need to check Katy's license to drive a golf cart ), to the bridal suite hopping with everything we could have needed. They were wonderful on our special day!
Behind the scenes you have Katy and Maggie, who together share a tremendous amount of experience and can offer guidance when you would like a little help w a decision. They allowed so much creativity in planning our menu with food stations that people loved! Thank you Harbor Lights!! Heather and Jen More...
Nice country club for a wedding.
Our wedding was 7/16/16 . I can't say enough positive things about the staff at harbor lights especially Tiesha who coordinated everything for us. Every bride knows just how nerve wracking it is to plan a wedding and how you want every detail to be perfect. Everything WAS perfect at Harbor Lights. The food which is amazing and the venue which is so gorgeous. The night flew by so fast and I can't believe how wonderful everything was. So thank you to harbor lights for making our day perfect in every way! Thank you to Tiesha for being amazing. And if your considering harbor lights for your wedding , book it now! More...
I love it here! Super friendly staff and good food. Their menu is a dream, with burgers, tacos, dough boys...oh god, I just gained 10lbs thinking about it. The chicken tacos are delicious. Simple, but incredibly fresh with excellent and flavorful gauc. My biggest pet peeve with chicken tacos is that often the chicken is too dry. Not in this case! Super tender and flavorful, and moist (sorry), chicken with fresh gauc. The cocktails are tasty as well, all served at a Tiki Bar by the pool. The pool itself is gorgeous, on the smaller side, but well kept, clean, and inviting. At night, it has color changing lights on the sides of the pool that make it even more fun to look at. The bar is right by the water, so you get great views and can enjoy sitting outside while the sun sets. There is plenty of seating, at the bar, on the patio and by the pool. You do need a pool membership to swim, and I am considering on getting one, depending on the price. On Wednesday nights in the summer, they have WRIK Rock N Roll bingo which people seem to enjoy. I recommend this location for some great food and fun during the summer! More...
We have our boat docked here and love it.. Tiki bar is great.. Pool is amazing .. People are so friendly and docks are nice
I cannot say enough great things about my experience at Harbor Lights! We had our ceremony and reception there on 5/20/16. The venue is beautiful! It has been recently renovated and was done so well!
Brie, one of the Sales and Events Managers, was my main point of contact. She obviously has a great passion for her job and weddings, and that came through in everything she did. Prior to my wedding, every interaction I had with her was easy, and accommodating. The day of, she was everything I expected and more. She wore so many hats that day, from event manager, (the VERY tough job of keeping EVERYONE happy :), to child wrangler, (she was AMAZING with my Ring Bearer, (age 3) and Flower Girl, (age 5), to just a great support, the day would never had gone so well if she wasn't there.
I would be remiss if I didn't also commend Katie, the Banquet Manager, who has such an amazing staff, that many members of my family who have worked in the service industry, have been raving about what a great job they did as well. Every server was not only attentive, but also seemed to genuinely like their job. I must also mention the other Event Manager, Ty, who was also so great to deal with. Her and Brie obviously work as a great team and are such great assets to Harbor Lights. My husband and I highly recommend Harbor Lights for any large event. More...
This venue was stunning! The day of the wedding everything was so perfect and breathtaking. Brie was an absolute pleasure to work with. I am so glad she was there! Huge help. Beautiful views and room! Love ! Love! Love! More...
We had an amazing experience with Heather and everyone else at Harbor Lights! It is truly a "diamond in the rough" venue -- forget about Providence and Newport. Harbor Lights is where it's at!
Ceremony by the water? Check. Gorgeous inside reception? Check. Breathtaking photo ops? Check. Catering to our every whim -- including special champagne on our sweetheart table? CHECK!
From the minute we contacted them we knew they were the venue for us. Responded to every email in a timely manner, helped coordinate between caterer and other vendors, and were with us every step of the way.
We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful and affordable venue run by a super professional and friendly staff. More...
Harbor lights was the first venue we looked at and we fell in love! I wanted to book that day and the girl who first helped us encouraged us to look at other venues to compare and even gave us specific questions to ask ! Needless to say after looking at several other venues we ended up back at harbor lights . The help they provided was nothing but spectacular, I ended up being very sick on my wedding day and they made me their number 1 priority at all times which I am more than thankful for ! The outside ceremony was beautiful and the inside reception was exactly what I wanted! More...
Harbor Lights is the perfect wedding venue if you have a limited budget but are looking to have a waterfront wedding. We got married this summer on a Sunday which turned out to be perfect weather just as I had hoped. But it was definitely reassuring that they have multiple back up options in the event of rain. They only schedule one wedding per day so the whole place is yours. We got married on site on the seaside terrace and all of the people by the pool were very respectful of our ceremony and quiet. They all cheered and applauded at the end too which was pretty awesome. The staff was amazing and always looking to make sure we were happy and had everything we needed. I even had one guest who drank a little too much and made a bit of a mess and the bartender talked me down from having a meltdown and assured me that everything would be ok. They have a back patio and some tables in the bar area for guests who prefer to relax instead of being on the dance floor. My wedding day was the day I dreamed it would be, I didn't have to sacrifice anything I really wanted, and we didn't go broke planning it. Thank you so much Harbor Lights!! More...
This venue is absolutely beautiful. From the seaside terrace to the back nine bar and grille, you will not be disappointed! They take such good care of their grounds and they fulfilled everything I wanted on the big day. I had the most perfect wedding day and so much is owed to Harbor Lights. They were accommodating and Michael really helped us in getting the photos we wanted during sunset and Heather was there when we needed her throughout the evening. My only qualm was that we worked with three different managers throughout the year and it was confusing having to repeat our contract to each different manager. I have heard that this industry experiences a lot of turnaround, so I can understand.
With that said, I was so happy with Harbor Lights and their willingness to accommodate my needs and make it the most special day of my life. Thank you all helped in making it so special! More...
We loved the setting at Harbor Lights!! The Marina was such a beautiful backdrop for our outdoor ceremony. The newly renovated ballroom was perfect, no out dated curtains and matching carpet. The sutble gray tones and the beautiful wrought iron chandeliers were such an elegant combination unlike any other country clubs we had toured. The only negatives were that the ceremony site is right near the Tiki Bar/pool area and there were kids yelling during our ceremony, we went through 3 different coordinators because they kept leaving and they decided to erect a new open air pavilion 3 weeks before our wedding, which they had mostly completed by the time of the wedding. But the location is stunning!! More...
Harbor Light Country Club was the perfect venue for our wedding! We were so pleased with everything; the grand ballroom, cocktail lounge area, outdoor patio and the property. There were many places for us to take some really great pictures! Heather, the event coordinator, took us and our wedding party around to different locations on a golf cart. She really catered to our needs and was amazing to work with. Harbor Lights is an absolutely beautiful venue and I would recommend it to any bride and groom! More...
I recently got married at Harbor Lights and I would recommend it to everyone! HL were the ones in charge the rehearsal, day of, Michael specifically, and they tended the bar, where I had 2 signature drinks. Even though, they were going through transition with the events staff, my day went off without a hitch. They were very good about getting back to me with all of my questions, and were always available to meet with me in person. Michael was amazing the day of. He was such a pleasure to be around and really calmed my nerves. I had nothing to worry about because he was so organized and professional. Through the whole night, he kept coming over to ensure that everything was going well and if I needed anything. During cocktail hour, he golf carted the wedding party around to take pictures, and even let us go on someone's yacht to take pictures. He was always there to ensure things were running smoothly. , and he did an excellent job because everything went off without a hitch! The signature drinks got rave reviews from the guests. Harbor Lights was a fantastic venue for my wedding and I wouldn't have been able to pull it off without people like Michael! More...
My fiancé and I fell in love when we visited the venue and booked it right away! Everything is new and beautiful! We cannot wait to get married here in September!
Harbor Lights is absolutely gorgeous! The main ballroom and bridal suite are beautiful and well kept. Everything looks like brand new. The floor layout is perfect and doesn't make guests feel disconnected, even with a large wedding. We had 160 guests. I had the pleasure of working with Kelley and Michael to coordinate my wedding at Harbor Lights. Michael was present the day of my wedding and helped run the whole day as smoothly as possible. He was at my side the entire time making sure I had everything I needed and kept everyone on schedule. All of the staff at Harbor Lights were delightful and easy to work with. They were highly professional and accommodating. The only downside to Harbor Lights is they only have one caterer to choose from and the catering company was a big let down on the day of our wedding. They serve delicious food but the service was very lacking as well as their follow up. More...
Wow, where do I even begin? When my husband and I were looking for wedding venues, we were looking for a place that could hold our outdoor wedding ceremony and indoor reception with amazing views around the site. With me being a lighting designer having a background in architecture, I had a particular eye for a stunning venue with character and immense opportunities. We viewed the venue in the winter and was blown away by how gorgeous the premises were with the snow. We could only imagine how gorgeous it would look in the summer! The boats on the dock, the rolling hills on the course, and the AMAZING view of the site from the patio of the country club were just too good to pass up. Not only were the premises amazing, but the country club was beautiful. The lantern style lighting and classic decor gave an intimate touch that we knew we couldn't get anywhere else within our budget. We worked with Ilana Rubin initially and then Kelley O'Toole who picked right up with our requests. What amazing personnel! She was speedy in her responses and was able to answer ALL of my questions. I felt like I was in great hands and trusted their work. Our guests loved the friendliness they received from the venue staff and were stunned at how beautiful the facility was. My husband and I knew this was the perfect place for us and it shows in our wedding pictures. Well done Harbor Lights!! What an amazing experience! More...
Restaurant, Pool Bar, Marina, Golf... Have a wedding, a dinner, a round of golf, or a place for your boat. I've done it all here. Picture Newport and East Greenwich rolled into something better and you find Harbor Lights Marina and Country Club! The food is worth a trip, the infinity pool is worth a dip, and the marina always has a slip! More...
Harbor lights was fantastic. The staff were super friendly and helpful and were very attentive to us the entire night. They replaced our meal 3 times because we were busy talking to our guests and they wanted to make sure we had a hot meal. They made sure out guests and ourselves were comfortable and happy throughout he entire evening. They also have a beautiful golf course and marina which allowed us to have beautiful pictures. More...
I have nothing but positive things to say about Harbor light staff thus far.
I cannot say enough to describe what an amazing venue this is. Kelley, a new coordinator there has taken incredible care of us. Every question via email was met with a quick and kind response. The venue itself is beautiful, it has a lot to offer in terms of space and options. The large bar and ballroom are only the tip of the iceberg. There is also a fantastic tented area that connects to the cocktail hour space. It is truly a hidden gem in terms of wedding venues in Rhode Island. If you're looking for that Newport vibe at a far more reasonable price without sacrificing value THIS IS YOUR WEDDING VENUE! More...
What is there not to say about Harbor Lights? This place is breathtakingly beautiful and the staff here is amazing! We were absolutely blown away how everything turned out to be on our special day. Nick and Kelley were so amazing to work with and they were there with us every step of the way that day. We highly recommend Harbor Lights for your special day or event, you will not be disappointed! More...
We got married at Harbor Lights this past summer and Harbor Lights helped make our day amazing! The staff there is incredibly helpful both during the planning and especially on the day of. There are a number of different backdrops for photos, including the green of the golf course, a marsh area, a beach area, the marina, and beautiful spots indoors. Harbor Lights drove our bridal party around in a golf cart to make photos in different spots easy. The indoor/outdoor setting for the cocktail hour was a great spot for guests to mingle and took away the stress of worrying about the weather. Overall, a beautiful setting with really great support from the event coordinators, manager, and caterer. More...
My husband & I are more than pleased with our choice to hold our wedding at Harbor Lights Marina & Country Club. Our wedding was truly magnificent. Ilana was wonderful to work with and her response time to email/phone calls, etc. was superb. Kelley, our go to gal the day off was also on point and a joy to work with. I can not say enough about the venue itself...we got married by the water (with out the price tag of a Newport wedding), our cocktail hour was hosted on the back patio overlooking the golf course and our reception was in their brand new, tastefully decorated function room. We entertained 112 with a 7 piece band and we all danced, mingled and ate very comfortably at our tables. I can not say enough about how wonderful our day was. We looked at venues in Newport, Portsmouth, etc. I am more than pleased with our decision to host our wedding at Harbor Lights! More...
So I'll start this review with my Fiance's remarks as we left this place (keep in mind, he's really hard to please): Laughing, he says "Looks like we can have it all". Here's why that's impressive. We looked around countless venues in Rhode Island and Mass. For some reason, even the most expensive places we visited just didn't have that X factor that we were looking for. I had to "give" on at least 1 expectation I had, like a rain back up plan, a grand entrance for an outdoor wedding, etc. My fiancé told me I'd have to be "realistic" and not every place would have everything to my standards. When we toured HL, we were blown away. They have TWO rain back up plans (tent the outdoor ceremony, or move the ceremony indoors to the Grand Ball Room). They have a Grand Staircase outside leading up to the gorgeous wedding terrace so I still get my grand entrance. The have a gorgeous grand staircase inside as well. The lighting inside is amazing - chandeliers and ambiance everywhere you look. You can't take a bad photo. The groomsmen will play golf on the course while my girls and I take over the unbelievably gorgeous Bridal Suite. The food is killer! The staff is amazing. Ilana Rubin is the coordinator. She's made everything easy and (believe it or not) actually fun for me! She is so professional and quick to respond. The lighting in the Grand Ball Room is just phenomenal for pictures. We were a little worried before viewing, because the place is new. But the new owner essentially tore down and tore out the old Seaside venue and rebuilt everything from scratch with extreme elegance. The photographs they have up here don't do the place justice (even tho these photos are pretty too). Every detail is carefully and perfectly put together in this place. Highly recommend. If you are serious about finding a venue, I'd reach out for info pretty quick tho. HL has been putting out amazing wedding here and the place is booking up really quickly More...
Our Wedding was on June 7, 2014. The venue was beautiful it started at 5pm where people could sit out on the patio for cocktail hour and enjoy the weather and the golf course. The reception area was perfect what I loved was the views from all angles of the reception area. The staff was wonderful I worked with Ilana Rubin who was very helpful through out the process as a bride you get nervous about all the details and she couldn't be more helpful. She will respond to all of you emails and was very professional. All of our guests loved the venue and had a wonderful time. The cater Pranzi that they use is also amazing and I will write a review for them as well.
Thank you so much for a wonderful wedding! More...
Our wedding on May 26, 2013 was the first wedding at Harbor Lights. Ed Berube's experience and expertise were invaluable to us as we planned our day. The facility is beautiful, the staff was amazing, and it was everything that we hoped for. Our guests loved everything about the facility and we have many great memories of our special day. More...
Ed Brube was great to work with. The venue was beautiful. Ed could not have been more accommodating, he took us around on the golf cart for pictures at sunset overlooking the harbor. This place was perfect for a wedding. Few guest even signed up for the country club. Venue is well worth your time to visit. Newly renovated. More...
This was the best company outing we've ever had. Employees and clients loved the golf, bbq. And steel drum band at the pool. Thanks to your kind staff fir making it a great day. We'll be back for sure. More...
We were so proud to be one of the first couples married on your new Seaside Terrace. The day was perfect, the setting was incredible, the food was out of this world and it was everything we and our families had hoped for. Thank you's to everyone from Mr. Berube to his wonderful staff for meeting all of our expectations and making what we anticipated to be a harrowing experience a pleasure in every way. More...
New owners have transformed this course. Beautifully maintained, love the greens, courteous staff, great food, incredible new pool club and bar. Membership rates too good to pass up and no assessments to commit to. An even more outstanding value if you have a boat. Members say the marina is easily the best on the West Bay with all of the amenities they now offer.. More...
Our thanks to the gang at Harbor Lights to get our boat out of harm's way ahead of Sandy. You keep on outdoing yourselves. That new travel lift sure saved the day. More...
This place is on its way! So nice to see the club house & golf course back to form. The food was delicious!
The course has improved greatly. The new pool & bar above expectations- can't wait to see the new club house and grill. The staff are all great- keep up the good job!
