This venue is beautiful, accommodating, easy to work with and overall wonderful! I twisted my ankle seconds before our ceremony started and by the time the reception came around my ankle was extremely swollen. I had been warned that we wouldn't eat much at our wedding reception by many brides/grooms but upon arriving at the country club I was offered food while waiting to take pictures and enjoyed every course for the rest of the evening, seated (which I really needed for my ankle). I was shocked that in spite of warnings I was enjoying a relaxing, fun reception in the same way my guests were thanks to Raffael's. In addition, Terese ensured that everything went according to our plans and made sure I had plenty of ice, or anything I needed including a golf cart, for my ankle as the day progressed. They provided us with exceptional service and were always organized and easy to communicate with. Their food is delicious and everything looked beautiful! They decorated for us and helped collect the decorations afterward as well. Everything they did was appreciated and perfect. I cannot recommend them enough!

I recently had my wedding at Raffaels on May 3rd. Raffaels was amazing!! Tina and Lynne were there every step of the way to answer my (many) questions on the wedding. The venue was absolutely beautiful and the service was great.We received SO MANY compliments on the food (including the hors d'eourves). We selected a package that also included many items such as the centerpieces and the invitations-both of which were stunning. I would highly recommend Raffaels!

Our ceremony and reception were held at Raffael’s at South Shore Country Club. The main reasons we chose this venue was for the price, location (I wanted to have the ceremony and reception at the same location) and I wanted good scenery for outside photos. Raffael’s at South Shore Country Club delivered on everything! It is such a beautiful venue and the staff is fantastic! They offer an incredible value as a venue and went out of their way to provide services for us that other venues would have charged an arm and a leg for. I hear from someone new everyday how incredible the food was and how great the staff were – that is was the best wedding they have ever been to.

Terese was extremely helpful throughout the planning of the event and the day itself. I really couldn’t have pulled this wedding together without her! She is one of the most organized, professional and creative people I have ever had the pleasure to work with! Terese made every detail of our wedding exactly as we wanted, and she even surpassed our expectations. She is a joy to work with and very reasonable. She allows you to customize your wedding according to your budget. I can’t say enough good things about her! She made our wedding ceremony so easy and stress free.

Absolutely no complaints at all, they made for a smooth and successful event at a great price.

The food was fantastic and the service exceeded my expectations. Terese is an amazing person and a true joy to work with. By far the best bargain for the quality.

My husband and I enjoyed the best night of our lives at our wedding reception at Raffael's at the South Shore Country Club on June 23, 2012! Terese Pannetta, the wedding coordinator, was the most amazing coordinator who ensured that every detail was perfect and was exactly was we had envisioned for this perfect day! Elio and Frank, the management team, also were terrific and so easy to deal with! Not one ounce of stress!! The food, cake, service and decor were absolutely a dream come true and, by far, exceeded our expectations! All of our partygoers said it was the happiest and most fun wedding ever! The staff was so wonderful and so accommodating to our guests! I wish we could do it again! I would highly recommend this venue to anyone!!! Since we were married in a church, we don't know how a ceremony would go there but we did use the outdoor tent for our cocktail hour - AWESOME!!!!!

I recently got married this past June 16th, 2012. I chose Raffael's in Walpole, MA to have my reception. I am not lying when I say that people are still calling up both myself and my parents telling us how much they enjoyed themselves at the wedding! They thought that Raffael's was just gorgeous. They were so impressed by everything.
The staff was extremely nice, the food was AWESOME!! My favorite person at Raffael's was Ricco.
When I met with him the week prior to my wedding and he turned to me and said " Don't worry honey - I will take care of everything" he absolutely meant it. The night of my wedding he was amazing - he was super accommodating, very attentive to everyone's needs, and most of all he walked myself and my husband through every step of the way.. Not for 1 second did I feel nervous or have that feeling of not knowing what's going to happen next - Ricco made sure to prep us for everything so we were totally prepared.
I can't say enough about Raffael's, only that I wish I could do it again and I hope a friend of mine has her wedding there so I can go back!
I highly recommend Raffael's for your wedding - you will be in good hands! ; )

Thank you to EVERYONE at Raffael's for making my wedding night a night to remember.!
Keep up the great work!

I would just like to say that I am more than thrilled with how my wedding day went at Raffael's. From day one working with Terese & Frank was an absolute pleasure!! My wedding went absolutely flawless and all of my vendors that I brought in said that they were amazing to work with as well.

I would just like to say that I am more than thrilled with how my wedding day went at Raffael's. From day one working with Terese & Frank was an absolute pleasure!! My wedding went absolutely flawless and all of my vendors that I brought in said that they were amazing to work with as well.

The Perfect wedding was certainly created with the help of the amazing team this Country Club has put together. I don’t know where to even begin, but as I sit here and think back now at how perplexed I was putting together a list of what I wanted in a Venue when I first started planning and deciding whether or not I wanted to hire a wedding planner makes me realize how amazing everything went from day one of agreeing to have my wedding here. My guests are still raving about “the best wedding food they’ve ever had” (I selected the chicken and baked cod, both made to perfection for each one of my guests), the service I received was better than I could have ever imagined. They literally followed every single detail I requested (some I even forgot about!). Terese, who is almost like your very own wedding planner along the way (she is the reason why I didn’t end up hiring one which saved me some $$) is such a pleasure to work with. She is just an amazing person and did such a nice job staying in touch and gathering as much detail as possible from me. She responded to all my emails immediately, called me anytime she had a question and more importantly kept me happy and calm without a worry in the world. I’ve heard of many horror stories recently about venues and people keep asking me if it was the same for me and I am happy to say I had the best wedding night a girl could ask for! I literally danced all night, I wasn’t bothered with questions from the staff, no complaints from guests about the service and more importantly things were run just the way they should have. Thank you Frankie, Terese and team for providing the best service throughout the whole process and making my wedding night as memorable as it was to me, my husband and my guests!!

My husband and I got married this past August and had our ceremony and reception at the South Shore Country Club. We had a wonderful experience from our very first meeting up until our wedding day. We especially loved working with Therese who was extremely accessible, answered all of our questions right away and seemed to have a great knowledge of the wedding industry and how to manage a successful event. We had a bowling/pizza after party at the SSCC's bowling alley which our friends and family still talk about. I would recommend the SSCC to any bride and groom looking for a venue with a great value, beautiful space and exceptional staff. I wish we could go back and do it again!

Hello to All:


Thanks to all who helped us with the difficult challenge of planning our daughter Jamie’s wedding.

Jamie and Marty’s wedding truly got rave reviews. We received so many wonderful phone calls telling us their thoughts. On person called to tell us that she has been to many weddings in Boston and this wedding surpassed them all.

The others also mentioned the beauty of Raffael’s, the excellent food (and that could not be stressed enough) and the terrific wait staff – they are very professional and accommodating. No one had to look for hors d’ oeuvres, the wait staff was right there!

Mike and I really enjoyed the evening as did everyone else. The dance floor was hopping!

I also want to mention the woman (sorry I did not remember her name) that stood guard and watched out for all of the gifts. She is one terrific lady!

A special thank you to Rico for the awesome orchestration and handling of the reception. He really knows how to make things flow. It truly made the evening run smoothly and totally enjoyable.

Our Bride and Groom are on their honeymoon now but I wouldn’t doubt if you hear from them as well. They had a wonderful time.

Thanks for all you did for us, you will not be forgotten as we would recommend you to anyone we know. “Keep up the good work”. You are the BEST.


Best Regards,

Mike and Judy McDonnell

Raffael's was a new vendor to me and my groom as we had originally signed a contract with the previous caterer that the South Shore Country Club offered. However with the new ownership the managerial staff was more than accommodating to me as I had already booked with the venue under the old guidelines and packages. The staff and service super-exceeded our expectations and guests are still raving about the food and service that this vendor offered on the biggest day of my life.

Choosing Raffael's for our wedding was one of the best things we did. We loved the gazebo, and the hall was beautiful. The staff was excellent, especially Rico who coordinated our wedding. Everything ran on time and was very organized. Their wedding packages made everything so easy -- they ordered our invitations, our cake, and our flowers. We even got to take our mothers to a tasting dinner before making our choices on the meals. I loved the fact that they brought food and drinks to our wedding party while we were taking our pictures. They were very adaptable to our needs. We had many compliments on our wedding -- everyone said it was one of the best weddings they had ever attended and much of that was due to Raffael's. Several people thought we spent almost twice as much as we actually did on the wedding. I would highly recommend Raffael's in Walpole.

One of the most beautiful ballrooms you will find, with a very nice terrace area. The gazebo area is also gorgeuos. We had hoped to have the ceremony there, but the weather did not cooperate. Fortunately, it did clear up and we were able to get some pictures by the gazebo. Food was great, and received many compliments from our guests. Everyone was very accomodating, and we could not have asked for a more perfect day. Special thanks to Joseph, our maitre d and Peggy, our main server. Joe checked with us on numerous occasions to make sure we had everything we needed, as did Peggy. The were quick to get us anything and we really felt taken care of. Most importantly, the entire staff seemed like they enjoyed taking care of everyone. Tina and Lynne our coordinators were also great. Thanks again Raffael's!!

Our wedding was near perfect at Raffael's in Walpole, MA. The staff was extremely helpful from day 1 and was very flexible and accommodating to our needs. The food was fantastic and we are still getting comments on how great the food was, especially the appetizers and displays. The only black mark on the night was we were supposed to have appetizers and champagne outside around the gazebo for the wedding party during pictures, however, these were set up inside the building. The staff scrambled to bring everything out to us. All in all, I would highly recommend Raffael's to anyone for wedding or any event.

When I decided to have my wedding at Raffael's earlier this year I knew from the start it was going to be a magical day. The room was beautiful, the service was excellent (Thank You Rico!), the food was outstanding and all of it made it a dream come true for me.I was delighted with everything and I highly recommend Raffael's to everyone.

I can't wait to go back for Sunday Brunch!

I got married at thier Walpole facility. The quality of service was quite good and they were very professional and responsive.
The facility is beautiful and has just undergone some renovation.

My only complaints about them was the fact that the food was moved too fast. A few of our guests complained that they went to the bar and by the time they got back, their food had been taken.

They were also a little on the expensive side considering they are outside of Boston.

Overall, I had a positive experience and that's thanks to them!

Raffael's did a wonderful job with pulling everything together. The room looked fantastic, the tables were set up beautifully and I received many wonderful reviews regarding the food. However, my husband and I were disappointed that we were unable to finish our food because they cleared the tables too quickly. We were busy with pictures, dancing, etc. but when we came back to the table our meals were gone, the cake was gone and they removed my champagne too. We also wanted to keep our champagne bottle, which they tossed out on us. Despite that, we had a wonderful time and the service was great!

This is a very beautiful venue however my rating was a lower because I found Rico, who ran everything the day of my wedding to be very unprofessional. He made many of my guests feel so uncomfortable that 3 different groups of people made comments to me in the following weeks. It was he tone and pushiness that really turned people off. Personally I think when you are paying a huge sum of money to a venue they should treat your guest with the complete respect. Not only that but many guest also commented on how during the cocktail hour open bar, which we paid for, the line was insane (I only had 120 quest) and they only had one bartender working. It seemed all to intentional and again guests asked the staff to maybe move things along so they could be served.
In the events leading up to wedding everything ran very smoothly and I enjoyed working with the wedding coordinators. I was just truly disappointed and even disgusted that my guests would have anything negative to say about how they were treated.

My wife and I had planned to have our rehearsal dinner last March at Raffaels in Hull. We put down a deposit in July and thought we were all set. A few months later we were meeting with our wedding coordinator (had the reception at another location) and told her where we were having the rehearsal dinner. When we told her Raffael's in Hull she told us that the place had gone out of business. We didn't believe her until we called Raffael's management and they told us that. I can not speak to the quality of the food or service because I was not able to experience it. When we called Raffaels other location (Norwell I think?) they said that their Hull location had in fact gone bankrupt and that they would not be refunding our deposit. They said that they could apply our $100 deposit to the bill if we had our rehearsal at one of their other locations. . But if they are so unprofessional that they couldn't call us to let us know that Hull location as closed why would we want to give them any more money? We told them we wanted our $100 deposit back and we were told we would have to wait until bankruptcy proceedings took place. It wasn't about the money as much about the fact that they never told us about it. We literally would have shown up to have the dinner and the place would have been closed.
