We chose Clambakes Etc. to cater our wedding Columbus Day weekend, and we could not have been more pleased with our choice. Our wedding was very much DIY, held at my parents house on the Cape, and we chose to coordinate all of the details ourself, without the help of a wedding... Read More planner. The fact that Clambakes handled not only the catering but also rental of the tent, tables and chairs, etc. made the process so much easier. They were knowledgable and professional, and the day of the event we needed only to tell them where to set up and and what time to serve and they took care of the rest, allowing us to enjoy the day and not have to worry about managing any details. The service was seamless, the food was delicious (especially the chowder) and the portions were quite impressive. We opted for the raw bar as well, which was an excellent addition to the dinner. I would absolutely utilize their services again, and recommend them to anyone seeking to create a classic Cape Cod clambake experience. Thank you, Clambakes, Etc. for helping to make our special day perfect :)

We contracted with Clam Bake Etc. to cater our wedding over Labor Day weekend, and we could not have been happier with them. Jason was incredibly helpful and very quick to respond to any questions we had. The day of the wedding, Clam Bake Etc. was punctual, and the food was... Read More amazing! Dinner was a huge hit with all of our guests, and the wait staff was great with all of our young guests who were interested in the lobsters! Also, the bartenders were great, and kept the drinks flowing smoothly throughout the evening. We also rented a tent and some other equipment from Clam Bake, all of which showed up on time and was installed very quickly, with no problems or delays. Overall, our experience with Clam Bake was wonderful, and we would happily contract with them again for other events.

I can’t speak more highly, or loudly, about how much I value the decision to hire Clambakes, Etc. HIRE THEM - THEY’RE GREAT!!! WORTH EVERY PENNY!! We hosted a tented garden wedding with Clambake cuisine. The entire experience, working with Jason, was ideal. My wife and I also... Read More had the added frustration of planning this wedding from the opposite coast of the country. With 3,000 miles apart from your wedding site, you need all the help you can get. And Jason was all the help we needed. At first we didn’t pick Clambakes, Etc. because the menu felt limited compared to other well-known vendors. Don’t let this stop you tho! Jason and his team are happy to work with you to make your event a dream. Everything we wanted, we got. Again, we hired Clambakes Etc for a wedding, where your expectations of service are at it’s highest. Jason and his team did not disappoint! There were countless times during the planning where Jason went above an beyond the call of duty. His communication is clear and respectful. The food speaks for itself. Everyone at our wedding raved about how wonderful the food was and also the day of the event service was exceptional. So attentive and appreciated. If you’re considering Clambakes Etc for your party, I encourage you to stop looking at any other vendor - you’ve found just what you’re looking for. (In a passionate interest to spread my love for Jason and team, I have posted this review in numerous locations)

A few days before the wedding, I negotiated with one of the managers who ended up agreeing that I'd only have to pay for one server for chowder and cracking. He then called the next day to rescind that agreement and... Read More I had to pay for two. Additionally, several weeks after the wedding (and after I'd paid the invoice), there was a charge on my credit card for something that I did not order. It was removed after I called a couple of times. The clambake itself was a great success but I wasn't overly pleased with the management of services towards the end.

I used Clambakes Etc. for my rehearsal dinner that was held in my parents front yard. After inquiring about their services, Jason was very quick to respond and get a contract my way. He called to touch base a week before the event to get a head count and go over a few details.... Read More The company sent two staff members who came with a trailer that had everything needed for the event. They cooked all of the food onsite so it was very fresh and so delicious. They also supplied all of the paper goods and necessities for eating along with trash cans (they took all of the trash with them). The two staff members were extremely nice, professional, and accommodating. Everyone was and is still raving about the food, a few of them plan on using the company in the future.

I made my own cake for my wedding. It was a 5 tiered 30+ inch high Rice Krispie Treat cake. It was pretty fun and funky. Anyway, I paid for the regular servers but paid extra for two "helpers" for the night. I asked them to cut the cake and just leave it there so people can come up and grab a piece of RKT and hit the dance floor. As I was dancing,I noticed they started passing the cake out. "How nice!" I thought. Well, I was wrong. Cause at the end of the night we went to pay them and they said they have to submit a new invoice for a "cake cutting fee". (As a baker, I know some places do this. I just wasnt notified of this.) Anyway, it cost $200 to cut the cake. More than it cost me to make it. Which pretty much stunk.
