How far in advance should I book my wedding venue?
Booking your wedding is one of the first things you should do when planning your wedding. This will allow you to speak with other vendors on their availability. Many couples choose to book their weddings so they have 1-2 years to plan the celebration however; we do see couples who book their wedding with less than 1 year to plan.

How many guests can your venue accommodate and is there a minimum requirement?
Generally the minimum guarantee is between 100 and 120 guests but we also offer reception rooms that can seat as little as 50 guests & up to 350 guests.

Are there different rates for peak and off-season dates?
Rates are not only affected by the season but also the time of day and the reception room you select. Off peak months like Jan. through March are more cost effective than months like April through December. As well, AM affairs are less expensive than PM and Twilight (Mid-Day) affairs.

Are plates, silverware, and glassware provided?

Are table linens & napkins included?
Yes. Included with your event is your choice of standard tablecloths & napkins. Upgrades are available for an additional fee through our recommended vendors or you may choose to bring your own.

They are worth every penny. Rob was our banquet manager and absolutely killed it, whatever we asked for he delivered with a smile on his face. The bridal attendant and Maître d Nick were absolutely on point. Everything was seamless and we were never without a drink in our hand. We did the taco bell to-go station and that was a hit of course. Our friends and family will not stop raving about the food.

I knew once stepping into Lisa's chair that it was going to be great! I have been following her for awhile and seeing tons of makeup looks! I knew that on my day I just had to book her!!! She is so down to earth and friendly which makes her the easiest choice! I felt so confident and beautiful! I'm so excited to have her on my wedding day!

Just got married at Watermill Caterers in Smithtown. If you’re still looking for a venue or have planned yours their you will not be disappointed. Brian, Sean, Jessica & the entire staff were absolutely amazing and went above & beyond for us. We couldn’t have been more happy with everything.

We had Brian as our main contact. During our first meeting I made a joke that we love Costco pizza and he made it a joke to buy me a pie on our wedding night. Lo and behold on our way out we left carrying our Costco pie for a late night snack. Everything was beyond our wildest dreams. When I got there, 0 worries, 0 stress. We had Sean as our maître de and he was attentive and made everything run smoothly. Kristina was my bridal attendant and god she was a gift from god. She had our drinks waiting for us after the ceremony, and after a quick dress concern she was quick and sprung to action. Cocktail hour was a dream and with the weather we were able to have guests outside. Reception was wonderful, food was excellent. I can’t say enough about it.

I can’t recommend Watermill enough! We worked with Brian. Everyone working was absolutely incredible BUT the food was the reason why we booked it. Everyone truly said everything they ate was incredible!

Lindsey T.

Everything about the venue was perfect. Food, atmosphere and staff. Request Nick as your Matre’d because he couldn’t have not been more attentive. I seriously have nothing bad to say.

Watermill was amazing for my wedding! From beginning to end, working with Brian and having our amazing Mautre D Nick they were the reasons this wedding came together the way it did.

Thank you Brian Fingerman who was amazing planning with us from start to finish. Thank you attendants, captains staff Nick, Lorraine and Joe. We could not have imagined a more perfect day!!

The Watermill - 100000/10 From start to finish the staff was nothing short of amazing. We had been working with Tom L throughout our entire planning process and he was always very responsive to any questions we had whether it be through email or phone calls. He really made us feel like family from the second we walked through the doors. The venue itself is stunning we really didn’t need to bring our own decor it was all decorated outside already for our ceremony. The food was amazing we got compliments from all our guests about the amount of dinner options we had as well as the amount of food during cocktail hour. Our maitre’d was Sean and he fit right in with us and our friends. The bridal attendant Christina was also amazing I always had a drink in my hand and my bustle broke on me TWICE both times she has able to safety pin it up for me so it wasn’t in the way. Overall we had an amazing wedding I’m so happy we booked with them.

Watermill: We worked with Tom L as our banquet manager and he has such great energy. Watermill was the first (out of 2) venues we saw and we immediately knew we loved it. Tom was extremely helpful when it came to postponing and always (quickly) answered any question I had. Our Maitre D was Sean and bridal attendant was Christina. Sean met us right at the door as we arrived and led us to our bridal suite. They accommodated us when we needed to be at the bridal suite 30 minutes prior than designated time so we can have our Ketubah ceremony. Everything leading up to the big day as well as the wedding day was organized, punctual and seamless. Sean and Christina were AMAZING. Our reception was in the Vanderbuilt Room. I love how the bar is very spacious and separate from guest seating. Everyone couldn’t stop raving about the food.

The Watermill was absolutely amazing and exceeded all my expectations! If you’re getting married there definitely request Shawn and Kaitlyn for your Maitre d and bridal attendant!!!

The Watermill - 10000/10. O M G I don’t even know if it’s possible to review The Watermill because everything was just SO PERFECT. The compliments on the food were talked about ALL night and well after our wedding! I chose not to attend cocktail hour, I had mentioned all I wanted was some baked clams, faster then I can blink an ENTIRE tray of baked clams came rolling into the bridal suite for me. The service was immaculate. Jennie was my bridal attendant and possibly the sweetest person on the planet, in between all of my photos she would have a tissue ready for me to blow my nose, took my dirty tissues and had another one ready to go. Sean was our maître d’ and he was ON it the entire night. The way they operate at The Watermill is flawless, they know how to run a wedding!!! Tom up until the last minute made sure we were happy with everything leading up to the wedding. We both could not be any happier. I wish I could live the day over and over and over again!

As soon as we walked into the watermill we knew this was where we wanted to have our winter wonderland wedding. We had the pleasure of working with Tom L who treated us like family from start to finish. The staff, service, food, drinks, decor and total ambiance of the watermill was amazing. We had no issues our entire wedding planning and our wedding day on 12/1/18. Tom L went above and beyond for us and made our dreams come true for our wedding. Our family and friends still rave about our wedding a year later, especially how staff made sure during the reception they always had a full glass of whatever they were drinking at the table. I would defiantly recommend the watermill for a wedding or any event.
