Barn weddings are one of the most popular types of weddings for a number of reasons: great venues, breathtaking views, and a charming overall feel. Couples who choose a barn wedding or a backyard wedding are typically looking for a fun, laid-back feel–but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice elegance within your design or menu.

There’s nothing quite like the Chesapeake Bay. Laid-back days on the boat and cracking crabs in the backyard for dinner is a way of life around here, and couples who choose a waterfront wedding wouldn’t have it any other way. That’s why your wedding on the bay is a total no-brainer when it comes to catering: fresh seafood.

Picture your guests enjoying fresh crabs, Maryland crab cakes, oysters, shrimp, and more. Caught fresh from the docks of the Eastern Shore, our seafood always delivers on quality and freshness. While you take in the views of the Chesapeake on your special day, you’ll be fully immersed in the bay experience

While everyone enjoys a great BBQ meal, it might feel out of place at your glamorous wedding. That’s why we recommend checking out our upscale wedding catering packages. Designed to be both delicious and reasonably priced, our packages provide a number of options like surf and turf pairings, filets, prime rib, salmon, and all the delectable sides your heart can desire. Your wedding is sure to wow your guests like a red carpet event, and your food will certainly exceed their expectations.

Soft, subtle, airy, and relaxed, bohemian weddings are all about delivering on good vibes. Bohemian weddings are great for couples who want to maintain a relaxed atmosphere but don’t feel like a barn wedding is right for them. Featuring soft and natural materials, pops of greenery, and vignettes for seating and conversation, Bohemian weddings are the ultimate environment for a good time and good conversation.

The perfect catering option for your bohemian wedding in Maryland? Buffet style catering by the Smokehouse Grill. We provide plenty of dining options that you can select for your buffet, ranging from fresh seafood to classic comfort foods. Keep the conversation and the fun going with a simple buffet setup.

More and more couples are choosing to elope or have a small wedding than ever before. It’s no secret that the cost of weddings is on the rise, which is why we aim to provide quality and affordability in our wedding packages. One way we do this is by providing drop-off catering options for smaller celebrations. Not only does this allow you to maintain the intimacy of your event without a full catering staff, but it takes the weight of cooking off the hosts’ shoulders. Drop-off catering with The Smokehouse Grill is easy and we’re happy to help accommodate to your needs–no matter the event. 

No matter your wedding theme, The Smokehouse Grill is sure to provide the quality and options that you’re looking for on your wedding day. Best of all, no matter what type of catering you choose for your wedding day, you will always please your guests with our full assortment of affordable options.
