Casual rehearsal dinner venue near York, ME?
We are getting married at the Dockside Guest Quarters in York in August and are looking for a place nearby to hold a relatively casual rehearsal dinner on the Friday night before for about 25 people. Preferably not a clambake, since most are not big lobster fans, but would be nice to have some seafood for those who do like it. I'm not from the area so don't have a great sense of where we might find a venue large enough and would love any suggestions. I've tried searching this board, but haven't come up with anything that seems to fit. Thanks!
We had an engagement party of about that size at the Cape Neddick Inn, and everyone was happy. We had a choice of a vegetarian entree, beef filet or lobster, plus salad and dessert.
We had the rehearsal dinner at 50 Local in Ogunquit, and the owners could not have been nicer and the room was perfect. We went on the early side and "bought out" the restaurant.
I can also recommend The Kitchen in Portsmouth for catering - they took charge of the reception which was outside on a farm. Casual but upscale BBQ.
August is very very busy for everyone, so be forewarned.
