Catering in Newport, RI

Are you hosting an event in or around Newport Rhode Island? Are you looking for a caterer in Newport RI?

If you haven’t already searched online for “caterers near me” or “caterers in Newport, RI/ catering in Newport, RI” I can tell you right now the results can be a bit overwhelming! Hopefully this article can help point you in the right direction for finding a caterer, venue, or planner in and around Newport, RI!

The first, and most important thing you need to determine is whether or not you are looking for an “all inclusive” venue where the catering and bar are included, or if you want a venue where you can bring an outside catering company in to provide food, bar, etc.

All inclusives are great for a destination wedding to Newport as there is a lot of details that you simply wont need to worry about because the venue’s staff will take care of for you! Just keep in mind that an all-inclusive venue in Newport may be a bit more expensive and you may be a bit limited in the creativity you can bring to the event or wedding.

Some all inclusive Venus in Newport, RI include:

Ocean Cliff Newport

Castle Hill Inn

Belcourt Castle

The Chandler

Rose Cliff

Ocean Cliff


The Bohlin

The Atlantic Resort

Venues that allow you to bring your own catering company, bar, DJ, etc. are typically going to allow for more creativity, and you can manage your budget a bit more strategically. Be sure to take in to account ALL the costs when using a venue that is not all inclusive, as its easy to get blindsided by some of the hidden costs- trash management, tenting and lighting, dance floor, liability, etc. As long as you are prepared, Having your event at a venue where you can piece together all the parts yourself can be fun as you can customize everything to your liking!
