We at Ipswich Clambake are dedicated to providing you with outstanding service, highest quality seafood, innovative menus, and all at competitive pricing. We strive to combine our over 70 years of collective experience with your particular needs and desires to provide a unique and memorable dining experience for you and your guests. We are based in Ipswich which is best known as the seafood distribution center of New England. This enables us to offer the freshest seafood products available.



From the sweet Ipswich steamed clams, the award winning-extra creamy clam chowder, the freshly harvested lobsters, the juicy butter and sugar corn, and the array of innovative sides containing fresh fruits and vegetables from farms around the corner, we bring you authentic New England flavors and stellar quality New England fare. Clambakes are not just for summer time, we do them anytime!

Corporate Events

What better way to say "thank you" to your staff and employees for their hard work and dedication than a New England Clambake. Whether it be a noontime luncheon at the job or an evening or weekend party at the beach or an event venue, nothing says it better than a special menu chosen just for them. Our experienced staff will work with you to make your party the success that you want and need it to be.

Family Events

We cater family events in your backyard, on the beach, at your local club, or a venue chosen from our list of recommended sites. The casual clambake is perfect for family reunions, anniversaries, weddings, birthdays, graduations, and other special occasions. Family events allow for a wide variety of menu choices. Choose from the eleven clambakes, BBQ, or picnic menus that are offered on our menu pages. Or, if you prefer, allow us to help you create your own special menu. Vegetarian meals and specialties for the young ones are also available. Experience an authentic New England tradition with stellar New England fare. And remember . . . clambakes are not just for the summer time . . . they are enjoyed whenever a celebration is in order.
