Welcome to the 'Bill Smith' Experience
Bill Smith's has been the 'Vineyarder's preferred choice' as their clambake caterers for over 60 years. We specialize in Clambakes -
and we do them very well! (We also offer other catering options).
Whether you are looking for a unique party experience at home or on the beach with family or friends, or
are planning a wedding for 30 to 3,000 guests, a 'Bill Smith's' Clambake will give your guests an experience in dining they will talk about for years
Options for your Clambake Event
THE CASUAL CATERED CLAMBAKE
Our most popular style is designed for a laid-back, fun
party such as family reunions, friendly get-togethers, wedding rehearsal
dinners and casual business functions. In spirit, it is similar to a picnic
or a back-yard party with casual seating and buffet style food service.
Blankets or beach chairs are great for your beach party while the same type
of seating you would use for an at-home barbeque works wonderfully well in
your yard or function hall.
The Casual Catered Clambake is great for your back yard, the beach or
wherever you decide to hold your party. The Casual option works to
give you an event that your guests will talk about for years to come.
Full-service is designed for special occasions, such
as wedding receptions, corporate functions, special anniversaries, etc.
The Full-service function is usually planned with linen table covers and
napkins, glassware, metal cutlery, china or glass table service, chairs
and tables, etc. The Full-service motif requires a tent or an indoor
function room of some type. We do not recommend Full-service clambakes
at beach locations.
The 'Go' option is a delightfully fun cook-it-yourself
clambake for groups as small as six persons. We prepare everything you
need and place it in two kettles: one for the chowder and one for the
clambake. You pick it up from our commercial kitchen on the afternoon of
the day you booked, together with a high speed burner, a tank of propane
and everything else you need for a fabulous picnic. Then off you go to a
beach or your summer cottage for the fun of a do-it-yourself clambake.
