The reviews for Clambakes Etc don't lie - they are that incredible. During and after the wedding, there were at least 2 dozen people who said my wedding was hands down the best wedding they had ever been to and Clambakes Etc was such a huge part of that. The food was amazing! And so cool! A lobster bake! (That doesn't break that bank shhh). There were a million details and Jason was on top of all of them. As my dad said later - we wished we could have watched them work to see the secret because we were baffled afterwards on how it ran so smoothly. When they arrived, it was quite funny to see 10 people pile out of the trailer and get right to it (it was almost like a team sporting event). They had all of the details taken care of - from remembering lobster bibs to renting galvanized buckets for shells to leaving no trash, it was such a smooth wedding day experience. Leading up to the wedding, Jason was AMAZING at answering my emails (and I sent quite a few with really minor questions). Some of my more traditional older family members thought that I had lost my mind for booking a vendor without trying the food first, but trust me the food is really great (I lived in NYC for a few years and grew up in New England - I've eaten at a lot of restaurants and a lot of wedding food - this was the best wedding food I've ever had. Quite a few guests said the same). The lobster was perfect; BBQ chicken was great; veggie/vegan/dairy free option (grilled polenta) was good; and I didn't try the steak but my friend from NYC said it was good. Sides were eye catching and tasty. Chowder was incredible. And the appetizers - oh my goodness get appetizers if you book this vendor - the raw bar boat was incredible; bacon wrapped scallops were out of this world, bruschetta was amazing, and I didn't try the rest. Jason was great at helping me figure out how many apps to get without trying to oversell. Such an incredible experience all around!!Sent on 06/27/2018

Best Caterer Ever!
I mean, where to begin. Clambakes Etc was AMAZING. From the prices, options, professionalism, set up, and most importantly how tasty the food was, they are hands down your go-to for a authentic cape cod clam bake! Our guests could not stop raving about the food. Such a wonderful vendor and experience!

We used this catering service for our wedding day and oh boy, was it a hit! The lobster, clams, sides, appetizers, clam chowder, s'mores station, raw bar was all amazing and very tasty. We ended up renting our tent, tables, linens, and chairs through them as well. The set up was very clean and simple and with all the wedding decorations, the tent really came alive especially with the lights they used. I'd highly recommend Clambakes to anyone looking to throw an awesome party. Extra bonus points for the servers cracking our (Bride & Groom) lobsters and bringing our plates to our table! Unfortunately I don’t have any photos of the food. We were having Extra bonus points for the servers cracking our (Bride & Groom) lobsters and bringing our plates to our table!

We photographed a rehearsal dinner in late July of 2016 at a beautiful field near the Glen Manor in Rhode Island alongside Clambakes, etc. The staff of Clambakes, etc. was super friendly and very cool with us taking some fun photos of the lobsters and clams before they reached the tables! We were able to enjoy the food as well, and we are still talking about how amazing it was over a year later!
The staff of Clambakes Etc are wonderful, the food is amazing and the presentation is just beautiful! If you are looking for the perfect Cape Cod caterer look no further!
