Clambakes of Connecticut was everything we were hoping for and more. We planned a wedding in CT from Seattle and communication with Ron was seamless from day one. As the wedding date got closer, I started to worry about day of coordination and had not hired a wedding planner. Ron introduced us to Leda who helped guide me through scheduling the day minute by minute, she was the absolute best!

I have to stress that this is not just any clambake, the food was absolutely amazing and our guests are still raving about the food months after! I believe a few guests even hired them for another future event :) They offer a huge range of catering options and will do anything to cater the menu to you. Our wedding wouldn't have been 1/2 as amazing without Clambakes of Connecticut!

Something to also note, the venue we rented did not provide much other than a roof over our heads, tables and chairs. Ron was extremely helpful in providing servers, bar tenders and cutlery for the food and cake/coffee.

We're already planning a repeat anniversary celebration (not sure which one yet!) and you better believe they will be catering!! Thank you SO much to Ron and Leda and all of the amazing staff at Clambakes of Connecticut for making our wedding day unforgettably perfect!

I don't even know where to begin with this amazing group - Ron, Eric, Leda and crew left a lifelong impression on us. Ron runs his business on the sole premise of making your day everything you imagined. From menu suggestions/opinions to countless menu changes to pricing to pure honesty when you have too much food...Ron was always there for every email or phone call and always made sure everyone was happy :) He runs Clambakes like an intimate family business and treats you as if you're the only event he's working through. Leda - everyone needs a Leda for their wedding day, though you'll never find someone else like her. Leda is the coordinator of all coordinators, the planner of all planners...and the most caring person. Your wedding reception is guaranteed to be perfect with Leda involved. From the first time I spoke with Leda, she was interested in every detail of the day and offered her crew for every task necessary. It's clear she and her crew have a ton of experience with weddings and will ensure a smooth day. Leda brought some of her own decorations to complement our decor, she provided thoughtful suggestions for flow of the day, she had a detailed task list/timeline prepared within a day of our first phone call, she became my wedding backbone for random questions I had and always kept in contact with me to ensure I was all set. You will miss Leda dearly when your wedding is over :( Although Eric is more behind the scenes as the chef...you are in great hands with the food he puts out. My husband is a chef so of course had initial concerns with someone else cooking for such an important day. You have nothing to worry about with Eric & his crew - all of the food was cooked & executed perfectly! From the king crab to the lobster to the steak to the raw bar and most importantly the pigs...we were so impressed! We are still getting complements on how good the food was!
We could never thank Clambakes enough for making our wedding day so perfect :)

Outstanding! We had the perfect day and it was because of Leda and the entire staff. The food, the set-up, the service and most of all the staffs efforts. They took care of everything. It was like we had a personal wedding planner! So helpful, so kind, so wonderful! Our friends and family are still talking about how amazing the event was weeks later.

Clambakes made my wedding, and here's why:

Note: this was an outdoor, 200 person tented wedding!

1. Leda. She was the head coordinator at my wedding. Not only did she communicate with me almost every other day leading to the wedding, it wasn't just about the food! I wish I had known earlier that clambakes actually has someone that is like a wedding planner! We bounced design ideas off each other, talked about decor, about things I would need like dumpsters etc. She was an absolute joy to work with!

2. The food. My guests plates were piled high and then a full lobster was thrown on top! It was great to see people with lobster bibs over their formal attire eating at all the tables. I have some very memorable photos.

3. The cook out. At first I thought I would have to get a screen to cover the cook space, but Eric - my head chef extraordinaire - said no. The guests really like to watch the grills. And they do! So many men would walk up to the grills, grab live lobsters, talk to the staff! They were so friendly and interactive it added this whole other level to my wedding.

Those were my three favorite things, they were great. I had so many compliments and great service and I'd recommend clambakes to anyone! I only wish I knew they did so much beforehand!!! I would have used them for the bar and as my unofficial planners...

My husband and I chose Clambakes of Connecticut to cater our wedding this past year. Not only did they do an amazing job, they truly made our wedding. They were extremely flexible in customizing our menu as well as in following the many rules our venue required, including removal of all trash and cleaning up the entire venue. Aleda was always there to answer any questions I had about setup and decorations and even made a timeline of events for the day which she coordinated with my wedding planner- a huge help! Her buffet and cocktail table décor was perfect for our beachside wedding and set the perfect backdrop for all our amazing appetizers and dinner.

The food that Ron, Eric and the rest of the crew prepared was phenomenal and easily the top aspect of our wedding that our guests are still talking about. Some of our appetizers included New England clam chowder with garlic bread (bigtime hit), shrimp and beef kabobs, a raw bar and caprese salad skewers. They even offered to bring the fruit garnishes for our bar. Food was top priority for our wedding as we love to eat and have come home hungry from way too many weddings. Our guests had plenty to choose from for our dinner buffet and loved the New England Clambake theme, especially our guests from the Midwest. I guarantee no one went home hungry.

Clambakes of Connecticut also provided a serving crew that made our lives infinitely easier. They were all very friendly and dressed professionally. They were always on-hand to help accommodate our guests, clear plates and fill water glasses but were so discrete we barely noticed them.

I recommend Clambakes of Connecticut without hesitation and will definitely be using them in the future.

Clambakes were great, they are reasonably priced but have delicious food! The service was wonderful and professional and even though it was kind of short notice, we got exactly what we wanted for our rehearsal dinner! I would definitely use them again.
