  • Kevin, Beth and Michelle were AMAZING to deal with!!! From the moment we tasted their clam chowder at the Portland Bridal Show, to the second we walked into the venue, we knew this was the PERFECT spot for our "Down East" destination wedding. Everything was perfect! They were so easy to work with and accommodated our every request. Our guest enjoyed watching the cooks prepare the meal out over the open fire while they enjoyed the cocktail hour and hors de overs, and the lobster dinner everyone raved about. When my husband asked me to marry him, the only thing I wanted was to be married in Maine and have a clambake for our reception....Kevin, Michelle and Beth made our dream come true. We also used their catering service the following year for our family reunion on the beach in Maine....again...Five star treatment!

  • What I loved about Foster's Clambake was not just the food that had our guest raving, but the passion and experience Foster's has. When our original venue fell through on us (true story- 3 months before the wedding!), Foster's was able to pull some strings and helped us get in with the View Point in York Maine- the most photographed lighthouse view in the country. My husband and I LOVE clambakes, but our wedding was rustic chic and we wanted to take a little "mess" out of the lobstah equations. Fosters didn't just take the mess out, they offered us a 5 star menu that 2 years later people are still raving about. Beth who helps to coordinate all of the details used her years of wedding experience to make sure we were considering the timing of appetizers, drinks, announcements, the dances, cake, desert as well as the layout of the space and even decor. I was overwhelmed during my wedding week and she helped to make sure all of our ducks were in a row. That's priceless. She also hel... Read more

  • Foster's Clambake was out of this world. They can travel anywhere but if you are doing a seaside wedding this is the company you MUST have. They will get it done right. They will serve every meal hot and of the highest quality no matter the size of your wedding. I can't say enough. They made specialty drinks that my friends are now emailing me about for their upcoming wedding, they had grommet h'orderves (seriously call to see about all they have to offer!!!), and although their lobster bakes are out of this world, they did a high end beef medallion with an incredibly delicious lobster salad (made that day). They also had a great dish for the vegetarian crew (I was too busy to stop and taste but I got really great feedback!). Their staff was terrific. Beth from Foster's was in contact with us throughout the whole process making sure that everything was how we wanted it. The week leading up to the wedding she went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect for our day... Read more

  • We had our ceremony & reception at Foster's, and no other place could have been more perfect. The staff was amazing, responsive and friendly. The food was tremendous! Guests kept telling us that they've never had so much food at a wedding. Our coorindator, Beth, was an angel. She worked so hard in the 90 degree heat to make sure everything ran as smoothly as possible. The venue even gave us a few upgrades for no extra charge. Foster's is a wonderful value, a beautiful space and the perfect place for a real Maine wedding.

  • Easily one of the best decisions I made about our wedding. We live out of state and they made planning our reception so easy by phone. The reception was loved by all our friends and family, the food was amazing and the space perfect for our needs. The staff was amazingly helpful and made our experience so memorable!

  • Foster's catered our Rehearsal Dinner on location at a private house in New Gloucester, Maine. Almost all of our guests were traveling to Maine and we wanted to give them a true lobster bake experience. Foster's did an amazing job and all of our guests loved it. The food was delicious (I love their clam chowder!!) and their stagg was super nice, chatting with the guests and answering all of their questions (some guests had never had a lobster!). They were so accommodating in giving us kid's meal and vegetarian options as well. I highly recommend them for anyone looking for a truly wonderful and authentic lobster bake experience!

  • Foster's catered our wedding at Odiorne Point State Park back in July of 2010 and over 4 years later, we STILL have friends and family talking about the lobster dinner! We had a lot of guests from out of state, so a traditional Maine clambake was a treat for them to see as much as it was on their taste buds. From our first meeting, Beth discussed options with us and helped us determine what we would need for appetizers, table linens, etc. She even helped us with the timeline of our day! She recommended several other vendors for us - our florist, our DJ... and we were very happy with their services as well. She went above and beyond, and it made things much easier for us to plan with her help. On the big day, things went perfectly. It was 97 degrees outside, but the clambake rolled on! The cooks were gracious enough to explain the process of cooking the meal to our curious guests. The service was friendly and speedy, despite the servers rushing around in the disgusting he...

  • We had our wedding ceremony in St. John USVI in May. We wanted to plan a post wedding reception a couple of months after we got back. We knew right away, when planning this party last fall, that Foster's was THE place. York Harbor, ME was near where we both grew up/summered with our families. We met with Beth Wilson last fall to discuss our initial plans. What a gem she was. Over the course of the 9 month planning period, she treated us like family and had every idea layed out for us. She knew what she was doing. Our party was amazing. Everyone loved the casual attire and summer island celebration theme. We had everything planned in terms of using a beach theme while also incorporating island specialty drinks, an In Memory table, light house and seashell hurricane lamps as table centerpieces, etc., etc. Beth and her team made our day easy, comfortable and nothing less than fun. Thank you Beth Wilson and the entire Foster's Downeast Clambake team. You made our dreams co... Read more

  • The bad: Originally was working with Michelle at Foster's, and then was switched to Beth but I was never told why the switch happened. I was supposed to meet with Beth the afternoon before the wedding, and she was super late (over an hour). I was told that the twinkle lights that were burnt out would be replaced before the reception - they were not. We arrived at the reception site to find out that guests were being charged for beverages at the bar - the contract stated open bar. Beth went around to the tables to apologize and to inform them to get their money back from the bartender. Beth apologized profusely for that mistake and made it up to us on the final cost of the open bar. Guests requesting a vegetarian entree were given microwaved eggplant parm (think Lean Cuisine). The good: Definitely outweighed the bad. Everyone had such a great time. There was no screw ups (that I'm aware of) for food - everyone got what they ordered. Everything was delicious. We were able to get hard s... Read more

  • We had our ceremony & reception here. They did a great job with the dinner service. The bartender was a bit rude to some of my guests, and the bar tab seemed to be a bit much for the few guests i had. But all in all it was a very nice time. The food was excellent.
