Clambake caterer in South Shore?

I'd like to host a casual clambake birthday party for my father-in-law at my home in early August. Does anyone have recomendations for a good caterer that will do the clambake for 20-25 people? I looked into Jake's but they only cater for parties of 50 or more.

  1. Check out the Silent Chef in Scituate. They catered my very small wedding (about 30 people) clambake about 9 years ago and did a great job! Be sure to sample their chocolate raspberry buttercream cake if you need a birthday cake.

    1. I went to a birthday party that Woodman's of Essex catered a couple of years ago. They did a great job. The website says "No party too big or too small." We had lobsters, clam chowder, clams of course, ribs and some sides. All very good and it was quite fun.

        I've been to several clambakes catered by Woodman's of Essex at work functions and they have always been fantastic.

          Summer Shack (Hingham) also does a Clambake, menu on their website
