“I had an intimate baby shower at The Big Chill and it was the most beautiful setting! The food (taco bar) was delicious and the staff – especially Emily – was fantastic to work with. I would definitely recommend The Big Chill for your next event!”


“Absolutely the perfect venue with the ocean in front of you and the gorgeous lit bridge behind you. Nage catering was exceptional to work with and the food, wait staff, and Kathy McDonnell were beyond my expectations! Don’t look anywhere else to host your next party!”


“The staff as well as the owner(s) were more than accommodating and took the time to rearrange a date cancellation and make the rescheduled date a true success. The folks who attended our event have had nothing but great things to say about the event and in fact, requested contact information to also plan their event at the location on the beach at Big Chill. Can’t thank you all enough for such a great experience!!”


“Emily Hare has been a joy to work with. Everything was amazing. Definitely recommending Big Chill to everyone I come across. Not to many places with work with you planning a spur of the moment wedding in a month Big Chill was awesome!”


“Emily help us throw together an amazing surprise vow renewal for my father and mother in law. It was a beautiful ceremony on the beach and an amazing reception (with awesome food) overlooking the bridge. It was absolutely perfect. Emily was responsive and even on the reception floor herself helping out. We had such a blast because of her. I highly recommend using this venue. It was absolutely perfect.”


“The atmosphere, food and service were all fantastic. Emily was easy to work with and responded quickly with answers to questions. We would recommend holding events at this location!”
