About Foster's Clambakes and Catering

Foster’s Clambakes and Catering is more than just a full-service catering business located in York Harbor, Maine. It also doubles as a venue with three possible ceremony and reception sites. Specializing in Maine-style food, Foster’s is famous for its clambakes and lobster bakes. Although they have three venues on site, they are also willing to cater a few surrounding locations.

Facilities and Capacity
With the option of hosting 75-400 guests, couples will easily be able to find a space that fits their wedding at Foster’s. The biggest space, able to hold up to 400 guests, is Foster’s Pavilion, which is located indoors with fireplaces, a stage, and a full bar. For couples that are interested in an outdoor ceremony or reception, there is a picturesque lawn with a pond in the background. If couples are looking for an indoor space that is more intimate and rustic, the York Room is the perfect fit.

  • Event coordinator
  • Resident showman
  • Paper flatware

Cuisine
Renowned for their authentic Maine lobster and clambakes, this venue is also a catering service and couples will not be limited on their choice for food. Foster’s lobster bakes are a fun experience to add to any Maine-style wedding, but for couples who are not seafood lovers, there are many other delicious options to choose from such as herb-roasted Statler chicken, beef tenderloin with bordelaise sauce, barbecue, salads, and vegetarian choices.

    Beyond perfect

    We can’t say enough great things about our experience. Everything was perfect! The best way I can describe it is that they turned a dream into a reality! We dropped decorations off the day before and when I walked in the day of my wedding- it was even better then i could have imagined. Stress free, easy to work with, great pricing, and great food !

    Maine to Boston Photo Booth Rental Photo Booths

    I have provided several photo booths to events at Foster's Clambakes, including the Wedding of the Year in 2016. They were chosen for this honor above all others in the area for the reception site. The staff has always been helpful and friendly and the venue provides ample area for all your wedding needs. Of Course let's not forget their Downeast style lobster/clambakes! Simply the best.

    We LOVE to work with Fosters, and do regularly throughout the season. We highly recommend them to clients. If we're pushed for time, their team, without hesitation (or us asking), has stepped up to help us out- not many caterers would do that! Not to mention, the food is always delicious!
