WE OFFER SEVERAL OPTIONS
FOR YOUR CLAMBAKE EXPERIENCE


View the slideshow, then check below to see which option best suits your needs
 
The CASUAL CATERED CLAMBAKE is designed for a laid-back, fun party such as family reunions, friendly get-togethers, wedding rehearsal dinners and casual business functions.

In spirit, the Casual Catered Clambake is similar to a picnic or a back-yard barbecue with casual seating and buffet style food service on Chinet platters, with plastic cutlery, paper napkins, etc.  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.

MORE INFORMATION
CASUAL CATERED CLAMBAKE MINIMUMS
Our Minimum for reservation on Monday through Thursday is the equivalent
of 15 adult guests and an equivalent of 20 adult guests for reservation
on Friday through Sunday and major Holidays.

The FORMAL CATERED CLAMBAKE is a perfect choice for wedding receptions, some corporate functions and formal celebrations.  This classy-but-casual party uses tables, chairs, linens, china, glassware, metal cutlery, etc.  Your Formal Catered clambake should be held either in a hall or under a tent so that the long-planned event is not subject to the vagaries of weather. We do not recommend formal events at a beach setting. 

When you want elegance without being stuffy, you want the never-to-be-forgotten Formal Catered Clambake offered by Bill Smith's Martha's Vineyard Clambake Co.

OUR UNIQUE CLAMBAKE-TO-GO is a delightfully fun do-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 them up from our commercial kitchen on the afternoon of the day you booked them, 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. 

We can usually book a Clambake-to-Go within 48 hours of request EXCEPT for holidays and July or August weekends.

All about
Bill Smith's Martha's Vineyard Clambake Co.

The original Bill Smith started clambaking for friends and acquaintances in the early 1950s, shortly after the end of the Korean war .  Soon summer visitors to Martha's Vineyard heard about his expertise and the wonderful flavor of his clambakes.  MORE
