We started planning our Cape Cod wedding about a year in advance and knew we wanted a clambake reception. At that time, we contacted a handful of vendors--some were unresponsive, some were already booked, but Jason from Clambakes replied promptly, was polite, professional, knowledgeable, and wanted to work with us. We knew we'd found our caterer--but for us, that was only the beginning of our great experience with Clambakes!Sent on 10/15/2016
We wanted our wedding to be as easygoing as we are, so we were extremely relieved to learn that Clambakes could also fulfill our rental needs for our backyard party. We looked to them for everything, and they were amazing. We changed our guest counts and service order more times than I'd like to admit, and they were kind and accommodating through it all.
About a week before our planned nuptials, the forecast took a dramatic turn for the worse. What had been looking like a sunny, mild October day turned to a 100% chance of rain. We had no tent on order. We didn't know what to do. Yet again, Clambakes came through. They worked with us to make sure the size would fit the yard (mind you, we live four hours away from our site and weren't able to be there to measure when booking. They worked miracles.) and ensured we had everything we needed to still throw a great party even with the rain. And on the day of, it was cold and wet outside, and the team from Clambakes were downright pleasant, professional, and personable. Not to mention the food! It was perfectly cooked and presented beautifully. Our guests were thrilled and couldn't get over the generous portion sizes. Of particular note, our vegetarian friends were happy that polenta was on the menu and that the sides were cooked separately from the meats so they could indulge like all the other guests. We were so happy with Clambakes Etc., start to finish. They are amazing and come with our highest recommendation! THANK YOU!!

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 were so thrilled with the service this company provided. We wanted to do a traditional New England clambake for our wedding, and they were fantastic. We booked their pit style clambake. I asked lots of questions, and they were very responsive throughout the whole process. On the day of the wedding, there were huge thunderstorms and flooding. So, we were worried that we might need to switch to a pot style. But, they said that it wasn't a problem. They put a small tent over the area where they dug the pit. And, the rain tapered off as they started to build the fire. The food was amazing, and our guests really enjoyed watching the whole process. Everything was perfect. I highly recommend Clambakes, etc.!!!Sent on 08/15/2018

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!
