Castle Hill Traditional Clambakes

With the Pell Bridge as our backdrop and aromas of campfire cooking through the air, guests will enjoy a buffet-style clambake menu. The al fresco setting will include live music and non-alcoholic beverages, with beer & wine available for purchase. In the event of inclement weather, we’ll take shelter under the sailcloth tent and continue the festivities. Reservations can be made for tables of four or eight, where you’ll be seated only with guests of your party. As the event requires significant preparation and will happen rain or shine, cancellation requests must be made more than 72 hours in advance by email to in order to receive a refund.
