Highly Recommend

We had our rehearsal dinner at Foster’s and I cannot express how pleased we are with our experience! Michelle and all of the staff at Foster’s were great to work with and made our event a breeze. All of our guests continue to rave about the food – lobsters, clam chowder, clams, mussels, ect (the works!). Everything was absolutely delicious and the venue was both beautiful and highly functional. We highly recommend Foster’s – we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect rehearsal dinner!

Delicious food and great service

We were so pleased to have Foster's cater an off-site lobster bake for our wedding in Rye, NH. The lobster, sides, and appetizers were all delicious. We really wanted our guests to feel taken care of and make sure nobody was disappointed, and Foster's made that happen. The quality of food was excellent while the price was comparable or better than other caterers. Garrison was great to work with and flexible as we dealt with the challenges of planning and re-scheduling our wedding during the pandemic.

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!
