The History of Pasadena Waterfront Restaurant, Church Point
Originally opened in 1935, the Pasadena Roadhouse was built to cater for locals, offshore residents and tourists.
The original site included a post office, general store, garage, and boat-shed, and on the first floor, a dance hall ballroom was built. The ballroom became popular for Saturday night big band dances and community fundraising events.
In the early 1960s, Pasadena was remodelled to become a boutique hotel with 13 guest rooms and a 2-bedroom apartment upstairs, and a restaurant and events centre downstairs.
Pasadena Waterfront Restaurant Ceremony & Reception Spaces
If you’ve ever imagined a wedding with island views and a Californian vibe, this is the place for you. With its built-in aisle, towering palm trees and crystal-clear water, you can enjoy a destination wedding experience while still staying close to home.
After completing your outdoor ceremony surrounded by family and friends, your guests need only to step a few feet into the interior areas for your reception. The restaurant can be configured in a variety of layouts, although our favourite is long tables with white Bentwood chairs, white florals and neutral accents.
Wedding photography opportunities abound at Pasadena with a waterfront lawn, private jetty, tree shaded walkway and easy access to watercraft for stylish boat shots.
Don’t forget that for the full end-to-end Pasadena experience, you can get ready in one of the upstairs suites and then wander back to your room once the party is over.

Reviews • Pasadena Waterfront Restaurant Weddings, Church Point
We had our wedding here and we can’t speak highly enough of Pasadena and their team. The venue is so special and beautiful to be right on the water with an amazing restaurant with lovely decor. The service was amazing, and all the guests reported back that they were well looked after.
We had our ceremony under the palm trees by the water, just beautiful! We loved that it was all in one place, ceremony, canapés and reception all set in this beautiful venue, big enough to enjoy all the different surrounds. We had the best day of our lives at the Pasadena! — Christie Harrison
My husband and I recently had our wedding at Pasadena and we can’t recommend this venue enough!
You can see just how stunning this venue is, but it was the staff who really made our night. Pasadena, you should be so proud to have such fabulous people representing your brand. Everything was seamless and done with a smile on every face. Our wedding was everything plus so much more than we could have imagined – Thank you! — Brooke Rose
