  • We originally picked Fosters Clambake as the caterer but after swing the venue our decision was made. They made our wedding day! Great food and venue!

  • Beth and the team at Foster's is AMAZING!!! They went above and beyond for our off-site wedding reception and helped make our day so special and memorable for us. We held our reception in York, Maine, so naturally, we had a lobster bake and we are so happy we did. The food is so amazingly delicious, the service was terrific - our guests are still talking about it. We were both able to relax and enjoy every minute of our wedding because we knew that Beth was running the show. Beth and her team made us feel like family and like the most important people in the world! :) If you are looking to host an awesome Maine lobster bake or BBQ - Foster's is the way to go!

  • W.O.W - the BEST! I mean...this food was incredible. This was a reception at a family business on the ocean in Old Orchard Beach. Amazing service, delicious food and just perfect. My fiance and I love lobster and steamers. I am a true Mainer who loves a good lobster bake more than anyone. Hence, why we wanted one for our wedding reception! The steamers, corn, salads, everything were so good. Soft shell lobster was great, and never did we feel like it was a messy affair. This was an elegant evening with a rustic vibe made possible by Fosters. We brought in pies for dessert from another vendor and they helped serve and complete the meal. It was a perfect meal and we have received compliments non stop since the event. Thank you!

  • I can not say enough about Dani and her team! Fosters was amazing. Not only was the food incredible (it was cooked offsite at our venue location - my parents backyard) but they were incredibly professional but fun at the same time. Lots of our guest both complimented on the food and the service. Dani went above and beyond as it rained 20 minutes before the ceremony and her crew was out there wiping off chairs and they did so much more then what was required of them that day. They are definitely a class act and I would recommend them to anyone. Thanks for helping make my wedding day perfect!

  • This food is phenomenal. We used their buffet-style BBQ menu (pulled pork and quarter chicken), which came with coleslaw, the best cornbread in the world, corn on the cob, beef hotdogs, potato salad, and this amazing blueberry crumbcake. It was mindblowing, truly, especially for the price. To back up, our wedding was on 8/5/16 in Yarmouth, ME, and we contacted them in March, so there was about 5 months planning time. We went for a taste test and we were sold! They were so incredibly nice, too, and also were exceptionally accommodating to some of our Celiac (gluten-free) friends and family. We hired their catering service as well as their full cash bar service, since our reception was in Maine (they can't do bar service for out of state events for liability reasons, I'm assuming). The bartender, Dan, was a hoot! Honestly, I've been to other weddings where they paid an arm and a leg for their plates and the food was just bland. We ended up paying maybe around $27-30 per person f... Read more

  • I can't say enough good things about Foster's! We had our ceremony and reception on site, and when we arrived, the ceremony site was all set up and the pavilion was decorated beautifully for the reception...we didn't have to do a thing! The dinner portions were huge and delicious, and our guests are still talking about how much fun the reception was. The level of service we received from the staff throughout dinner was outstanding and something you don't see every day. Well worth every penny, and if I could do it all over again I would definitely choose Foster's!

  • We used Foster's for our rehearsal dinner and we had an amazing time! It was beautifully decorated and the staff were so responsive. Everyone LOVED the food (we had the cookout menu) probably almost more than the food at the actual wedding. Everyone kept going up for seconds! I would definitely recommend working with Foster's for your wedding or rehearsal dinner!

  • Joe and I worked with Foster's for our clambake wedding reception at an offsite location nearby in York, ME. The team was incredibly easy to work, generous and full of ideas. They were flexible and true partners as we came to them with ideas in how to customize the experience for our guests. Special shout out to Beth, who is truly the best, and Adrian who did a fantastic job making sure everything was executed seamlessly on the day-of. Such an amazing experience. Terrific food and service. We cannot recommend the Foster's team more for your wedding or upcoming event.

  • My husband and I had our wedding ceremony and reception at Fosters in September, 2015. We were so pleased with their service. The food, service, decorating, scheduling and attention to detail was phenomenal. Our guests are still telling us that it was the best wedding food they have ever had! The owner, Kevin, was so kind and helpful and gave us zero pressure when we met him. The wedding coordinators were simply amazing. I would recommend this venue to anyone looking for a rustic, laid back, orderly, sweet, intimate, beautiful wedding!

  • Foster's was amazing for our destination wedding! We were married at Rye Harbor State Park and they brought everything to us! I was a little nervous that they weren't able to cook on site but the food was hot and delicious and guests said it was the best wedding food they have had. Foster's was professional, organized, and fun to work with! I highly recommend them to anyone considering a lobster bake for their wedding.

  • My husband and I used Foster's Clambake for our Rehearsal Dinner onsite in Portland, Maine. The communication prior to the event was excellent- Michelle laid out our different options and the price points and was very responsive. On the day of the event the staff was excellent- they arrived onsite at our outdoor rehearsal dinner space and set up their spread- we selected the clambake option so there was lobster, clams, mussels, rolls, drawn butter, clam chowder, corn on the cob, potatoes, and blueberry crumb cake for dessert. Our guests were blown away. We had many guests from within Maine and outside of Maine at our rehearsal dinner and every single guest was beyond pleased. The food was excellent- I believe my father had 3 cups of their award winning chowder! They also have non-lobster options in this package in case your guests aren't fans of lobster, or have allergies. Foster's Clambake is also a great value- they show up onsite with the food, serving receptacles, trash ba... Read more

  • We are currently working with the wonderful staff at Fosters for our August 2015 wedding. Michelle and Beth are phenomenal and have made the incredibly stressful process of wedding planning easier for me! They are prompt, sweet, professional and knowledgeable. I am so happy thus far and will be back to review after our big day!

  • Okay, so this review is a month overdue, sorry guys. I'll give you the summary first...Foster,s staff and management bent over backwards to make our rehearsal dinner the absolute best event, and they hit a homerun! The manager (Kevin) was a gracious host, who encouraged to use the newly built private room...it has its own attached stone patio with open fire pits, candles, and party lighting that made sitting outside a real pleasure even though there was a chill in the air. The cocktail hour and hors d'oeuvres were very nicely done, from the Antipasto to the Melted Brie Crostini w/ Pomegranate, Caramelized Onion & Toasted Pecans...all were very nicely prepared and presented. For dinner, the Lobster bake dinner was superb...even the locals were complimentary! But, most of all, a huge THANK YOU to Jenna, who was spectacular in working with us to make this such a special evening. Thanks also to Lisa, who was so easy to deal with in making the reservations and Kevin, who was just... Read more

  • We recently had Fosters cater a private charter of the Thomas Leighton in Portsmouth, NH for our 10 yr high school reunion and they were fabulous. They told us when they thought we were ordering too much food which was super helpful and even offered advice for which foods were best on the cruise. The food was really good, even though it wasn't their clambake specialty. We had the Mediterranean platter, the veggie platter and the sirloin. All were delicious! And Mary was a delight to work with. They are a little pricey, but the food and service is worth the extra cost. I hope to book them for future events soon.
