About Foster's Clambakes and Catering

From Backyard BBQ's to Black Tie Weddings, Foster's Does It All!

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.

Services Offered
Foster’s Clambakes and Catering is a full-service catering company and a Maine wedding location. These services include:

  • Event coordinator
  • Resident showman
  • Paper flatware
  • Stainless flatware
  • Glassware
  • Setup and teardown on-site
  • Tables and chairs
  • Linens


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.

I had my rehearsal dinner at Fosters 9/22/17. From the start of planning through the day they were very professional and helped everything go off without a hitch! Food was delicious! My fiance and I were going for a little more laid back feel for our rehearsal and this was perfect! Not to mention food was amazing! There was a wedding going on in the main building the same night and it looked beautiful! Would definitely recommend.

We used Fosters as our caterer at my daughters wedding this past August, and they were amazing, their staff were professional and there for our every need. The food was plentiful and no one left our wedding hungry. I would highly recommend them. Thank you for making the day perfect,

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!

Foster's is such a fun, festive and relaxed place to have a wedding and the staff have always been kind, professional and prepared for my cake deliveries. I love walking by the big stone pit in the back and watching them getting ready to cook the food with all of the steam and smoke; it smells great and the whole set up with the two fireplaces and fairy lights is the best quintessential Maine experience that I can think of.

Beth and Michelle are excellent to work with! They really go out of their way to accommodate all the couples that we work with. There is no doubt in my mind that they will give any bride and groom the experience they're looking for with their wedding reception. Don't hesitate to hire them for your wedding reception!
