Need suggestion for Thursday (sept 1) for 7-8 people after our civil ceremony at Castle Island.

this Thursday we are getting married (small civil ceremony with close friends) at Castle Island.
After that, we are planning to go out and eat.
Group is about 7-8 people
One of them is vegan. If there was something available, that would be ideal instead of the usual
steamed rice/veggies.
A place where we could bring a cake would be ideal but could live without it
Closer to waterfront? or should we go somewhere else where it wouldn't be too hard to coordinate.
About $30ish per entree would be OK.

Thank you!
P.S because of the group, I had looked at booking at Legal (waterfront, 2nd floor).
The vegan friend 'is looking' at the menu. They do not allow bringing a cake...
I looked at Sportello because it is next to Drink. My future husband was uninspired by the menu...

  1. No idea if these fit your criteria but they're worth checking out: Cafe Portobello (small local Italian joint) on East Broadway in South Boston, Sel de la Terre near the Aquarium, the new chain steak house type place where Jimmy's Harborside used to be. I'm not sure of the name but maybe someone else can chime in.

    1. What about Local 149, which is steps away from Castle Island?
      Really casual for sure and if Sportello was uninspiring, perhaps not a good match, but ultra-convenient to your ceremony venue.

      1. I would consider Amrheins in south Boston. I am sure they would allow you to bring a cake for a wedding celebration.

        1. What about Sam's at Louis next to the ICA? Its a beautiful view from there. Or maybe Strega Waterfront would have something for you.

          It's supposed to be nice on Thursday: charter a boat for where you can bring your own drinks and food!
          One example:

            LOVE the chartered sail idea! My husband says Sully's for burgers and dogs and french fries, and some red cups for champagne and cocktails for a picnic watching planes take off and land.

            . The mexican joint on the waterfront is getting some good reviews, or daily catch might be an idea. Franklin Southie used to have veg/gluten menu, but likely not the right vibe. Haven't been to Sams but the view would work. Anything happening at the Boston Harbor Hotel outside or the Intercontinental outside? Worth checking out. Waterfront legal is getting good press.

              Love the chartered sail idea. Wished I had thought about asking the chow crowd...
              We ended up going to Waterfront Legal. Beautiful views. Rooftop is very nice.
              Casual restaurant/bar on 1st floor very happening. We were on the second floor.
              Very formal. Food was much nicer than the usual Legal (my friends were saying it's trying to
              compete with Oiishi) , with expensive prices that go with it. But
              it was a special night for us. Maybe next year, we can try to charter a boat.
