The Lobster Trap Pub

The Lobster Trap Pub has an authentic sports bar atmosphere, perfect for groups of all ages. It can accommodate groups of up to 200 guests cocktail style, or 100 guests for a sit-down style event, and is available year-round. Perfect for corporate events, rehearsal dinners, casual weddings, parties, and more.

The Salt Marsh Tent

Nestled behind our Essex, Massachusetts restaurant, the Salt Marsh Tent overlooks the scenic Essex River salt marsh, and can seat up to 100 people at eighteen picnic tables. Available from May through September, the Salt Marsh Tent is perfect for rehearsal dinners, corporate events, birthdays, graduation parties, and more.

The Top Deck

The Top Deck is a completely enclosed space with screened windows and great views of our Essex salt marshes and summer sunsets. With a full bar and frozen drinks, it’s perfect for those who want an indoor/outdoor feel, and it accommodates up to 80 guests from Mother’s Day through Columbus Day. It has access to our award-winning catering, which will make the food for your event stand out as the best you’ve had at a wedding.

Wedding Rehearsal Dinners

A wedding rehearsal dinner is considered the second, after the wedding reception, most important event of a wedding celebration. It is a moment when couples celebrate their wedding with family, close friends and out of town guests in a smaller, more intimate surrounding. Woodman’s has been catering wedding rehearsals for decades. Our clambake and catering make an impression your guests will never forget.

At Your Location

If you are looking to hold your event at your home or other location, Woodman’s will come to you and cook! We have over 100 years of catering experience and will provide your guests a culinary experience they will talk about for a very long time. Woodman’s caters off-site wedding receptions and arranges wedding party rentals throughout the Boston area. Woodman’s can assist in arranging what you need, so you don’t have to!

No matter the occasion, we invite you to make Woodman’s Boston area wedding venue and function facilities part of your family tradition by having your next event at one of our locations in Essex County, on the North Shore of Massachusetts. Everything is possible at Woodman’s.
