We had the most incredible rehearsal dinner thanks to Swan River! We had many family members traveling in for the wedding and they were incredibly accommodating hosting a large group of us (120+ !) The view is stunning and like nothing else you will find on Cape Cod. The food was also out of this world! We had clambakes and the lobsters were raved about endlessly. They were also incredibly accommodating with our guests who had any dietary restrictions. We were able to use the deck through out the night for pictures, cocktails and mingling. Marita, the owner, is beyond amazing. She was so kind to us and incredibly detail oriented. You can tell instantly she cares so much about making everything memorable for the bride, groom and their loved ones. Everything was set up perfectly when we arrived and the staff was absolutely wonderful. Our rehearsal was raved about just as much as our wedding!! We can't thank them enough for kicking off our wedding weekend perfectly.

We loved Swan River! We did a lobster bake rehearsal dinner there last June. Our wedding itself was more formal, so we wanted to do something Cape Cod-y and casual for the rehearsal. Overall, it was so much fun, especially for our out-of-town guests (some had never had a whole lobster before!). Marita was a pleasure to work with, offering to rent linens if needed and accomdate guests who might not eat seafood. The price too, was a nice surprise -- especially since these days when you mention "wedding" everyone seems to upcharge you. It was far cheaper than anywhere else we looked nearby, and absolutely delicious!

I can't say enough nice things about Swan River! We had our lobster bake rehearsal dinner here on 6/25/2015. Our wedding was more formal so we were looking for something a little more casual but still great food and service that encompasses Cape Cod and we found it! The food was great and everyone received tons of food. I worked with Marita thru email and she was fantastic. She was so flexible with the arrival time and decorations. She even let us pick our own linens and was willing to even help with decorations. I was allowed to arrive early to set up decorations and service was on point all night from the bartenders to the waiters. By the way, did I say the price was extremely reasonable too! This place is great...thank you again for giving us the best rehearsal dinner!
