The Chesapeake Bay Beach Club offers an exceptional culinary experience for our waterfront weddings. Our catering team, led by Executive Chef Charles Keck, offers formal and informal menu selections to reflect each couple’s individual preferences. After booking a venue, couples receive a packet of menu items including beverage services, butler passed and action station hors d’oeuvres, plated appetizers, plated entrees, desserts and “Happily Ever After” late night snacks.

The Chesapeake Bay Beach Club requires couples to spend a minimum per person which varies based on season, day of the week and package style. This minimum is designed to ensure there will be enough food and beverage selections to satisfy all guests throughout the entire event. We strongly encourage couples to choose 6 to 9 hors d’oeuvres per guest, a plated entrée and a bar package as the starting point for creating their wedding menu. The Chesapeake Bay Beach Club understands that some guests may have dietary restrictions and that specialty meals may be required. We always offer a vegan or vegetarian meal...
