  • Clambakes of CT catered our 70 person outdoor wedding and was spectacular! Ron was very flexible in letting us pick out a menu that would please all of our guests and came with a full package of wait staff to go along with the cooks. We had a raw bar with oysters, mussels, clams, shrimp cocktail, caprese, and cheese platter during the cocktail hour, with lobster, chicken, salad, grilled vegetables, and mac n' cheese for dinner! It was the first time that many of our guests had eaten a full steamed lobster (which Clambakes cracked so they didn't have to do too much work) and they were thrilled. For the quality of the food and having it prepared on-site, Clambakes was surprisingly affordable, and Ron was great to work with beforehand. If you like lobster or BBQ, couldn't recommend them enough for any special occasion.

  • I hired Clambakes of Connecticut to do an "elevated" pig roast at my wedding and they exceeded my expectations. First of all, Ron is great from the minute you book with him. He's laid back, but also good about walking you through the process and making sure he delivers what you want. Secondly, the food is INCREDIBLE. Most brides don't get to eat on their wedding day, but I had a chance to sit down for a second and I'm so glad I did. EVERYTHING was delicious. The pig was juicy and flavorful - just melts in your mouth. The Mac and cheese was out of this world, even the salad was amazing! We had a multi-cultural wedding, so we had to please very different palates and all of my guests would not stop talking about how delicious the food was. Their presentation was beautiful and went along with the theme, and the staff who cooked and served were so friendly and pleasant to be around. I want to have another party so we can hire them again! Don't hesitate, book Ron and his team for your next p... Read more

  • Ron and his team are great to work with and the food is fabulous! His staff is helpful, polite, and very professional. It’s not summer without our annual clam bake and we’ve used Clam Bakes of CT for the past 7 years without any issues.

  • We used Clambakes of Connecticut for our wedding and there are far too many good things to say about this caterer in a single review. We have absolutely zero complaints about using their services. They're not just a catering company. They also provided all the chairs, linens, patio heaters, and drinks at the reception as well, which was all combined into a single bill which was the most affordable quote we had seen from anyone else. They made planning a seamless process, where they showed us all of our options, and we simply pointed and said what we wanted and they had everything set up on the wedding day. Ron was our main point of contact for the entire process and he was an absolute rockstar with communicating and ensuring that everything was happening in a timely, and efficient manner. Oh, and the food. The food was outstanding. Our guests are still talking about it weeks after the wedding. They were truly an absolute joy to work with and I wish this company all the best.

  • Clambakes & BBQ of CT did an AMAZING job catering our wedding at Lighthouse Point Park last weekend! Ron was fantastic to work with. Everything was easy and seamless. Ron took care of coordinating linen rentals, set-up, break down, and even made sure we had enough bistro tables for our cocktail hour. With our venue, everything was DIY, so it really was great for us to have the help without having to involve a wedding coordinator. The food was fantastic! Everyone at the wedding commented on how great it was and how fun the food made the wedding. We also used Ron's son's partner company Bartending of CT. Everything was so EASY and reasonably priced. I recommend them both for any event because they not only make it more fun, but they know what they're doing and provide an excellent service!

  • Ron, I wanted to tell you what a fantastic job you and your team did in organizing and executing our Lobster Bake party last month to celebrate our daughter's graduation. Your team was so nice, organized and helpful, the food was absolutely perfect. This was especially important since we live out of town and so we trusted you to organize the whole event for 50 people, from tables and linens, food, setup, bar and take down. We were so lucky that the weather cooperated too! I wish we lived nearer and could use you again. You have our highest recommendation. Susan and Stuart

  • Imagine your favorite uncle being in charge of the biggest detail of your wedding-the food. If you can imagine that, you will know how it is to deal with Ron from Clambakes. Approachable, kind, accommodating, easy to talk to, with a “yeah. We can do that” mentality, Ron and his staff will do whatever it takes to make your event amazing. Our guests haven’t stopped raving about how delicious the food was a week after our wedding. Thank you Ron and everyone at Clambakes of CT.

  • Clambakes of Connecticut was top notch. We were a bit hesitant to sign on because we weren't able to do a traditional tasting but we ended up trying the food at another event. From our first conversation, Ron was understanding, flexible, humble and really understood what my husband and I were looking for in the 'feel' of our wedding. We had to change our wedding plans and Ron rolled with the punches and was completely flexible. All of my guests couldn't stop raving about the food! Presentation and staff were awesome. Highly recommend!

  • Clam bakes of Connecticut was absolutely perfect in providing exquisite food and beverage service! Our entire event was better than I ever expected largely due to their catering. I am always concerned about having enough food for my guests, absolutely no problem, plenty of delicious and a variety of food for all. My guests were also catered to with the staff assisting with special needs they identified and made all comfortable! You will not make a mistake booking Catering of Connecticut, I am hoping to have another opportunity to party with them!

  • We used Clambakes of Connecticut for my husbands 40th birthday at our home this summer. The food was excellent and cooked perfectly and the staff was incredibly friendly, accommodating and attentive. I received so many compliments on both! And working with Ron during the planning process was a pleasure - very responsive, easy to work with and made planning a breeze. I highly recommend Clambakes of Connecticut!
