  • Fosters catered my wedding on July 11, 2015 at my childhood home in NH and it was PERFECT! Beth and her team are wonderful! The service was great, the food was amazing, and I have heard nothing but positive things from my guests. Thank you all so much!

  • My husband and I got married in May and decided to have a clambake party at the Seacoast Science Center to celebrate in July. Fosters was amazing from start to finish! They were extremely detail-oriented during the planning process and kept everything stress-free. The day of the event, Dani and her team were incredibly accommodating and professional. Everything was truly perfect. They took care of every detail so we didn't have to, which really allowed to relax and enjoy our event. I think our guests are still raving about the blueberry crumb cake...

  • The whole team at Foster's is INCREDIBLE! Never once did we regret our decision to go with them for our wedding reception on June 27th. We had an offsite wedding at a family estate in York and Michelle was so helpful in working with us in all of our various needs. We had to book Foster's without ever trying their food because we live in Los Angeles and weren't able to fly out to do a tasting in season but Michelle agreed to meet with us around Christmas break to discuss everything we needed. We went with the BBQ menu and made sure to have Lobster on the menu (of course). I and a few other family members are vegetarian and Michelle said they were equipped to make whatever type of vegetarian dish I desired, so I sent them an idea for a vegetarian dish and it was BEYOND what I could have expected! EVERYTHING was AMAZING. People are still talking about the food! We had PLENTY of food to go around and people were ecstatic to be able to try more than just the lobster. The blueberry crumb ca...

  • We held our wedding reception at Foster's Downeast Clambake in York, ME, on Saturday, October 11th. The clambake hall transformed from a big room lined with red-checkered tables to a ballroom that had rustic elegance. The lights and candles, once the sun went down, made the whole scene glow, and the autumn pumpkins and hay bales gave the place a fairy-tale feel. It was a truly special setting for our wonderful reception. Oh, and the food??? The appetizers were to die for, and our guests loved the scallops wrapped in bacon and our special-made empanadas. Guests had a choice between lobster, beef tenderloin, or a vegetarian meal, and the food was incredible. My lobster came with clams, mussels, potatoes, corn, and chowder. Don't forget the chowder! Kevin Tacy, the owner, made us feel right at home. There is a picture of him with former President George H. W. Bush in the hallway by the offices, and it's clear that he knows what he's doing. When we were touring, we were so... Read more

  • We found working with Foster's to be an absolute pleasure from start to finish. We were very comfortable allowing them to proceed as the experts they are in their field. Our event was inaugural, so we were not quite certain what to expect. Foster's covered every detail, and the staff that represented them in the Midwest was professional, kind and wonderful to work with. We booked our 2015 event well in advance and look forward to the opportunity to work with them again.

  • Excellent from start to finish. Very pleasant experience. Staff was extremely accommodating. Would highly recommend, excellent value. I shopped many venue's and their primary concern was pushing alcohol and the amount of money they would make off the event as they were approaching their slow season. A few putting unreasonable amounts I must spend. Fosters approach was listening and recommending options for alcohol consumption which catered too my wants and budget!

  • Adrian and the Foster's team are AMAZING! They helped us give our guests a real Maine experience. They were so flexible, especially with our venue. We had our wedding aboard the Bay Mist - part of the Casco Bay Lines Fleet. They set up and broke down beautifully! We all loved how attentive they were with our shuck buckets and helping keep us and the boat clean. Our guests stuffed themselves! Everyone was absolutely raving about how the event was so comfortable and easy, even the deckhands! Fabulous crew and a fabulous time all around!

  • when it comes to rating the quality of this company on every level, well, there are no words to truly describe what a painless, wonderful, happy experience it was to deal with Fosters... I was in touch with Beth Wilson, who went above and beyond Every time I needed help deciding on anything from the menu to finding someone to marry us, to help finding a band, deciding the color of the napkins and on and on and on.. she was incredibly helpful on all fronts at all times... as for the actual day, again I don't know where to begin.. the service was incredibly friendly, professional and timely... from them helping my niece, and anyone else who asked, to get the meat out of her lobster to turning just around and there was a drink when I needed one.. to having flowers for my hair waiting right when I arrived on site... Wow!... as for the Food... triple Wow! it was Amazing... the best clam chowder most folk I've spoken to have ever had to .. well, lets just say I'm salivating just thinking abo... Read more

  • My daughter wanted a casual wedding with the downeast flare. Fosters was perfect. The clambake was great, they were very accomodating by allowing us to bring in special appetizers and desserts. They also went out of their way to make my family sangria recipe. They never said "no" with any of our requests and my daughter has only wonderful memories of that day. The wedding planner was always there to help and suggests but never intrusive. Wedding date was 8/3/2013 and we had about 180 people.

  • We had the absolutely BEST experience working with Foster's for our wedding reception. First of all, the staff is fantastic. Every single person we spoke with was friendly and accommodating and, surprisingly given all the weddings they do, we got such special attention that we felt like we must be the only people they were working with (NOT true! But it felt like we were #1). Beth, our go-to gal, was amazing and so open to creating the look and feel we were going for. At first, I considered hiring a day of planner because I was worried about feeling stressed having to take care of things day of. I had to do NOTHING, at all, every detail was taken care of by Beth and the staff and when we walked in to the reception and I looked around it was PERFECT! Our guests have not stopped talking about what a great time they had, how delicious the food was, and how beautiful the venue looked. If you are looking for the perfect New England venue, look no further.

  • When my fiancee and I got engaged we decided early on that we wanted most of our budget to go towards the food. It was a big investment on our part. I could not have been more pleased to choose the BBQ menu from Foster's. They were recommended by our venue, Wallingford Farm Kennebunk Maine. The taste testing was beyond amazing and what sold us. I truly enjoyed working with the whole staff. Everyone was so helpful and supportive. As a bride you are so stressed about everything and Foster's really worked with me to ease the stress and not add to it. The day of our wedding, they were angels sent to us. They set up our tables for us, they served amazing food with smiles, and they broke down everything for us pretty much. It's been three and a half months and our guests still talk to us about our food! Many have said it was the best food they've eaten at a wedding. I couldn't have agreed more!!
