    OMG the food!

    This caterer did an amazing job! Everything from the staff to the display of the food was amazing. I wish that I hadn't eaten lunch before going to the wedding they catered because I simply couldn't get enough of their food. What I think that I enjoyed most about this company was the service. The staff is attentive and they obviously take pride in working together to create the best experience possible.

I was privileged work with Clambakes of Connecticut while shooting a back yard wedding reception. They provided amazing service and the yummiest food I’ve had at a wedding in a very long time. This was no ordinary back yard reception. Clambakes of Connecticut managed to raise the bar of how it can be done right. I would recommend them to any event as I would love to experience their style of catering again.
