“We LOVED this space for our wedding –it made our whole wedding day! We had a rustic, intimate wedding of 45 people. They were very affordable considering the amazing location, view, and beauty! (Esp. in comparison to other venues with views– and this place has the best views!) We used their pier for our ceremony — serene, beautiful, calming, & made for amazing photos!”

“Michelle, Travis, their waitstaff, and crew were on their “A” game. The venue is already a magical place to get married and Michelle, Travis and team made it even more special. I would highly recommend getting married at West Shore Cafe! The food was 10/10, the service was 10/10 and the venue was 10/10.”

“We had our wedding at the beautiful West Shore Cafe and Inn! We loved how accommodating all the staff was and we loved the bridal suite! Excellent views and service as well as perfect size and setting! My bridesmaids stayed in the villa which was perfect because it was right next door! Everything went off without a hitch, the West Shore Cafe and Inn was really the perfect venue! We plan to visit again!”
