    Coastal Critters exceeded our expectations in every way. We did a lobster bake for a wedding of ~100 people. Best lobster I've ever had (and I'm a native Mainer). The beef was tender, the sides tasty. The staff was professional, courteous and flexible. Don't waste your money on overpriced Portland-area "gourmet." If you want a real Maine wedding that won't cost a fortune, go with Coastal Critters. You will not be disappointed!

    James catered our rehearsal dinner in Camden on June 24th, 2016, and the experience was WONDERFUL! The majority of our guests were form Michigan and Colorado, and a clam/lobsterbake is fairly foreign to us! We received incredible feedback from our family and friends, the food was super fresh and there was plenty! Could not say enough wonderful things about this experience. Thanks James!!

    James was very nice, and the critter team was very professional. They are flexible and are happy to go over different menu options. Food was well prepared and there was plenty to go around. Everyone was happy and full. I would recommend Coast Critters Clambakes & Grilling.

    Coastal Critters Clam Bakes's reply:

    Thank you, Tmana, for your kind words. I thought you were very nice too! We do strive to please ALL our clients and we're happy you enjoyed our services on your wedding day. In all fairness to our readers here, though, I should probably mention that I spent a great deal of time on this event to make sure it went off without a hitch because, well....that's what daddies do for their daughters! I love you, sweetheart!
