WEDDING PURPOSAL ON THE BEACH
I wanted to send you a quick note to Thank you for all that you and your staff did in order to make my event fantastic.
"Leave The Fuss To Us" is written on your paperwork. Suffice it to say ,that is an understatement!
The entire process, from the very first conversation we had, was very much second to-none. In fact, I was speaking to several other people. Detail made my decision to go with Clambake Connection, an easy one!
Planning a speciasl event like this long distance is a bit nerve racking. Maria really made this all work, especially in the end when there was a storm and also offered an indoor "Plan B" should we need it,was just great.
I'm also conviced that you had something to do with the storm passing.
The food , the service , the attention to detail all made this dinner on the beach picture perfect.
Your guys did a phenomenal job! We are so thrilled and look forward to using you guys again MANY times!!!
Clambake Connection catered my Wedding and did a beautiful job. We had a raw bar, where the staff shucked really fresh oysters endlessly to keep up with the demand of our oyster loving family. It also came with delicious clams and shrimp! All the seafood was delicious and fresh. The lobster was prepared perfectly and even cracked for us and came with fresh clams and mussels. When my florist was running late, the staff even pitched in and generously helped out! Maria was on top of everything and made planning my day stress-less!
Rave reviews about the pig and rave reviews about Chef David! I can't tell who we loved more. It was a great day and it all worked out well.

Maria and Phil,
I know that my brother joins me in telling you that it has been a joy working with you both. Everyone had a fabulous time, even the raccoon who showed up at the end! My family members could not stop talking about the delicious food and excellent service. As you say "Leave the fuss to us" we did and you came through with flying colors. Your staff worked so hard and it was so hot. I hope they are happy with their tips ($100 each). We will be very happy to recommend you anytime we hear of someone wanting a clambake, we will tell them we have the Cambake Connection!!!!!
Have a wonderful and successful summer.

Feedback on the food was very positive and a specific reference to your competition "Capt'n Johns, confimed we had made the right choice in going with Clambake Connection. Thank you for making it all so easy and ennjoyable. We'll be in touch for the next party we plan! Have a great 4th..
50th Anniversary party
The clambake on July 4th to celebrate our 50th Anniversary was an event to remember. The westher cooperated and it was a beautiful evening. How ever, the best part was the food. As one of my guests wrote after the party, "The clams,mussels and lobster were delicious. I rarely have such treats anywhere, much less here in Connecticut". Im sure all of our guests would agree.
The service couldn't have been better, and everything went so smoothly we were able to relax and enjoy the party. Thank you so much for all your help.
Sweet 16 Birthday party!!
Thank you so much for helping me out with Jessica's Sweet 16 Birthday party. I wasn't sure if I would be able to pull off such a great party! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I hope your children enjoy the treats. Please make time for yourself for a mani-pedi on me. It's people like you that make life a lot easier!!
Clambake for the Board and friends of RED RIBBON FOUNDATION
I was skeptical at first that 2 men could handle 48 guests. I was very amazed. They were wonderful. The food was served in a timely and beautiful fashion, and it was delicious. I can only give ClamBakeConnection the highest marks for an evening to remember. WE look forward to future clambakes.
Many thanks for a job well done.
ClamBake Connection really made our pig roast / Luau Party for my husband’s 50th birthday a truly special event. Maria in the office was so helpful with all the details in arranging our event and David was a wonderful chef as he tended to our pig roast, entertained questions from our guests, joked with the kids and served the most delicious roast you could have asked for. I would highly recommend this for your next big event!
We had a 30 person clambake and it was awesome! Before the event, Maria was attentive and precise. David and William, on the day of the party arrived early, could not have been nicer or more helpful -- and the food was great!! Thank you to all involved, it was great!!
Great experience !! Very Accomodatimg
Easy to work with and we bought ours cooked and it was perfect!!!
Definitely will use again!
Lobsters and more
Great Job, Perfect! The lobsters, mussels, clams were cooked to perfection, 100 percent covered from dinnerware to clean-up. The cook was flexible and happy to do all he could to make the 50th birthday part so special. Great service and food. Much appreciated maria.
We have used Clambake Connection for over 15 years with complete satisfaction. From the care they take in the planning, to arriving on time, to terrific food, to cleaning up as if no one was ever there, Clambake Connection never disappoints!
Port Chester Fire Patrol & Rescue Family Picnic
The entire process was professional from estimate to clean up. The food quality and preparation was excellent. The staff of David, Michael and Derek were very pleasant and professional. The raw bar and lobsters were outstanding. The roast pig was cooked to perfection. I received many compliments during the affair. I would recommend clambakeconnection anytime.
Just a note to tell you the clambake you did for me was outstanding. The food was delicious and plentiful and the staff were friendly and courteous. They cleaned up so that you would never know we had a clambake. My guests just raved about the party. Thank you so much.
High School Graduation Party
Everything was excellent. Food was tasty and Will and Cliff were on time and availble to help out. Thanks for everything. I would definitely use Clambake Connection again.
Top notch work by David,Michael and Cliff. Couldn't have hoped for a better experience.
New England Clambake
Today, I went to a clambake.It was the absolute best. The food could not have been fresher. The raw oysters and clams were cold plump and fast coming. I don't know how Maria was able to shuck so quickly while smiling and talking to us. There were piles of delicious plump firm shrimp. then on to some creamy clam chowder. When you thought you couldn't eat any more, dinner was served and what a dinner!!! Lobster, potatoes, corn on the cob served on a bed of sweet,sweet steamed mussels and clams-the plate was so heavy I needed two hands to carry it. I forgot to mention a lovely tossed salad with the perfect amount of dressing. Maria and David did a super job. Never went to a better clambake. Actually, the meal was better than any restaurant lobster dinner I've ever had.
Fourth of July Clambake
The "Clambakes To Go" were definitely the way to go! It had an entire meal in one mesh bag! Easy to cook and a huge family hit! Thank you!
New England ClamBake
All my fears, trepidations, doubts were dispelled by your presentation. You and David did everything you promised and more... You were superb! The ClamBake came off as a total success thanks to you.
All my guests were completely satisfied as was I.
Thank you for the superb job you did and I have no hesitation in recommending to anyone... Again, thank you.
Very truly yours,
Summer Killington Reunion Party
I booked the clambake connection for my annual party. I had about 40 guests. The party started at 2:00 with the main course clambake served between 5:00-6:30. I had the basic clambake which included lobster, steamed clams and mussels, corn on the cob, potatoes, and watermelon. I filled in with appetizers, side salads, and desserts myself.
Everything from the clambake connection was wonderful. They came on time and served ontime and were delightfully friendly and accomodating. Most imortantly the food was delicious! Everyone raved about the lobsters (which were excellently cracked for easy eating) and the steamed mussels and clams. All very fresh and tasty.
The bibs and wetnaps were a nice touch. Everything was served on a tray. And, there was tons of food. They cleaned up perfectly as well. I would definately use them again!!
New England Clambake
From the moment I tasted the oysters, clams, shrimp and chowder I was hooked. I couldn't get enough and they were readily available. Fresh succulent and mouth watering! I only stopped when I realized what was up next. A tray full of steamers and mussels, an ear of corn, two boiled potatoes, salad and lobster cracked and easily removed from its shell. Freshest seafood dinner I've had! I feel very lucky to have experienced this once in a lifetime meal with my friend Dick Sammel.Thanks Dick for the memories.
First birthday Clambake
Service Excellent, Food Delicious, All the seafood was fresh and perfectly cooked. I can't praise your team enough. Thank you for making my party spectacular. It made me look like a great host! I will definitely use clambake connection again!
Clambake to go!
Maria and the Clambake Connection crew:
We were not 100% satisfied with our prior "clambakes to go" from "another" company. We drove a little further to get to Clambake Connection, but found the professional and courteous staff to be most helpful and the food was fantastic! Well worth the trip! We have stopped looking for a party food supplier! We will definitely be back soon and will be recommending that our friends also give you a try!
Thanks for making our event a huge success!
Clambakes to go
Everything was delicious! The food all came hot, cooked perfectly, and ready to eat. My whole family feasted and enjoyed the food tremendously! I also felt that you were priced very reasonably for the amount of food you gave us. I will definitely call you guys again!
Maria - the best! She's calm, incredibly responsive and flexible, and as a result, you instantly trust her. She knew exactly what needed to get done and when which allowed me to focus on other aspects of the day. Derek, Mike and Cliff - professional, pleasant; they took very good care of us despite the rain. I will book with Clambake Connection again.
Maria, David, Mike and Deven: everything was wonderful. From the original quote to the set-up and clean-up. Clambake connection took care of it all.
I will recommend them again and again.
Leigh and Casey
We used Clambake Connection for the second time, and they were just as good as the first time around. Derek and William were great...arrived on time and had everything ready when it was needed. And the food was wonderful. We had the Ribs, Chicken and Sausage,, along with many other vegetables, etc. Our guest all raved about the food! And it was plentiful, as we had lots of leftovers. Well, not so much as the guests who stayed late ate again later that night!
I would highly recommend Clambake Connection in a heartbeat for any function that you are planning!
I have been using Clambake Connection for the last 8 years and have never been disappointed. The food is always delicious and the staff are warm hearted. My guests look forward to our now famous "clambakes" with great anticipation. Thank you to Maria for always being accomadating, extremely helpful, and for always having a smile for each guest. Thank you Clambake Connection!
I just wanted to let you know Dave and Cliff did a great job at our picnic Saturday!Everyone loved the food and were happy wioth the service. We left the final payment with them before we left. Thank you again for everything!
Just wanted to let you know that Phil was great and we really enjoyed his company! Thanks again for working with me through the back and fourth details prior to the party.
Annual club clambake
We had a great time. It rained and was windy while the team was cooking which made for difficult conditions for the cooks. The whole Clambake Connection did a great job of cooking for over 300 and the food was delicious. Great lobsters, lots of clams and mussels, nice potatoes and corn on the cob. Options of chicken, steak and children meals.
Members gave very positive and enthousiastic feedback and it was a pleasure to work with Maria and her team.
ANNUAL CHURCH LANE BLOCK PARTY
ANOTHER FABULOUS JOB!!! OUR CLAMBAKE WAS A HIT YET AGAIN. OUR 3RD YEAR IN A ROW WITH CLAM BAKE CONNECTION!!

Thank you all for helping make my Wife's 40th birthday party fantastic. Mark and Cliff were both outstanding and helped make the day perfect.
45th class reunion clambake
When we began planning our 45th high school reunion we decided that we wanted to have it on Compo beach and that we wanted good food but didn't want to buy it, make it and clean up after the cooking was done. Let's face it we are getting older and we like being waited on! I looked around at different places and after talking to Maria at Clambake Connection we decided to have them cater our reunion on the beach.
Afterwards everyone said, "that clambake was the best idea we've ever had".
Mark, Cliff, and Will were the best. They were prompt, friendly, more than willing to accommodate our every request and the meal was just great. Very fresh lobster, shellfish delicious corn. You can tell they use good fresh ingredients.
If you are looking for a catered clambake I wholeheartedly recommend Clambake Connection.
Thanks again from, Staples High School Class of 1969!!
40th Bday Party!
Mark and Cliff came to help us host my sister in laws birthday party and it was a HUGE sucess. Every guest loved not only the food, but also loved Mark and Cliff. They were professional, timely and fun... they had everyone laughing and celebrating :)

Thank you very much to Maria and Phil! Pig was delicious! And hours of intellectual entertainment provided to my kids by Phil were invaluable.

Pirate Clambake Party
I can't give enough praise to Maria and Clambake Connection. This is the second party I've hosted with the help of the caterer (the first was an awesome Pig Roast Party). Clambake Connection handled absolutely every detail of my party - set up, food, bar, tents, DJ w/ karaoke, clean up - all I did was decorate. The food was absolutely delicious, and I heard this from every attendee. I can't wait to use them again for our next party - I'm thinking Barbecue!!
Cliff and Dave
Were professional and the Rib's and chicken were to die for!!!!
