THE CLAMBAKE

.At Compton Catering and Clambakes, we serve your guests the freshest locally harvested seafood cooked to perfection. We use only the time honored traditional New England clambake methods passed down to us by the Native Americans and early settlers. A traditional Compton Clambake starts with a bonfire built of local hardwoods and stones. When the stones are red hot, a generous layer of freshly harvested rockweed is added which generates the steam. The steam cooks the layers of lobsters, steamers, potatoes, corn and other delectables to give it that authentic clambake flavor which is unmatched by any other method. ​
 

As the bakemaster welcomed the guests, we at Compton Clambakes have added our own twist to this tradition. We include the unveiling of the clambake as part of your culinary celebration. Our bakemaster, Jason Oliveira, describes the clambake process and provides delightful information about our locally harvested selection of seafood.​

​We also offer raw bars stocked with the freshest available local oysters, little necks, shrimp, crab legs and claws. In addition, we serve our famous clam chowder and a variety of hot and cold hors d'oeuvres.
