Private Summer Beach Clambake

2023 Private Beach Clambake Experience

Our newly-designed private beach clambake experience at Chatham Bars Inn was a great success last year and is back by popular demand for the 2023 season! 

Open to the public as well as members and guests of the Inn, this new clambake experience features a private dining table with elegant table décor, an adjacent tableside smokeless fire pit and tiki torches on the beach for each party of up to 8 people and is hosted by one of the Inn’s chefs preparing a multi-course family style clambake dinner from a welcome cocktail and appetizers through a selection of desserts including an elevated s’mores kit. The chefs will be preparing some courses on each party’s private tableside firepit while others will be showcased on the Inn’s established beach clambake pit with the “reveal” of the cooked lobsters, potatoes and corn then served directly to the private tables. After the sunset clambake, guests are welcome to continue enjoying the evening relaxing in Adirondack chairs around their private bonfire. 

The delicious clambake menu includes Chatham oysters, shrimp cocktail, littleneck clams, tuna tartare, clam chowder, Chatham steamers and mussels, marinated steak tips, lobsters, fresh vegetables from the Chatham Bars Inn Farm and much more. Please click below for the full menu.
