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.

Ct Clambakes catered my outdoor July 4. Ron & Leda were responsive 100% of the time to my emails, phone calls and the variety of questions I had from the day we signed the contract as well as a follow up phone call after the event. The weather on the wedding day started with rain and predictions were not good for the starting time of 5:00. My fiancé & I were stressed, even though we had tents it would be difficult with Tropical Storm Arthur on the way. As soon as Leda and her team arrived and she immediately calmed me with her idea of rearranging the planned eating spaces and told me NOT TO WORRY! This very professional crew took over, everyone commented to as to the professionalism, the beautiful table décor, friendly and accommodating staff. Comments about the food were superb, everyone raved about all of from the apps to main course. Not a slight complaint!
Thank you for making this a great day.

First time I have used Clambakes of Ct. I researched a lot of caterers for our wedding and overall I was very pleased. They are expensive (we got the deluxe package) but the quality was outstanding -- well worth the price. Pros: excellent menu, fantastic food (highlights were shrimp kabobs, clams and beef kabobs), plenty of main course food including lobster and steak, good presentation, professional, on time, ability to customize the menu (add/subtract from package). Cons (not as important as the pros): ran out of lobster bibs, lobster crackers broke, a bit short on quantity of appetizers (ran out of clams and beef kabobs), did not leave enough dessert plates or any forks (requested dessert plates ahead of time but were short), packed up earlier than expected.

It was difficult getting a tasting--the only way you can do it is if you go to another event. But if you're willing to trust their quality, you won't be disappointed. We did not have a tasting for the lobster/clambake we had for our wedding and everything was delicious. Staff was very friendly and professional.
