There are times in life that are meant to be celebrated.  Let MarKel's help you with those celebrations.  Beautifully creative and delicious cuisine, a professional and friendly staff and a great sense of style are hallmarks of MarKel's.  We not only cater at our own venue but are also well known for our off-site events.  From a formal tented wedding at one of Castine's coastal landmarks or an intimate family reunion, we offer all of the services you will need to make your special occasion memorable and successful.

A function, event, or party does not always mean hundreds of guests.  Whether you are thinking about a private dinner for twelve, a cocktail party for fifty, a family barbecue or traditional Downeast lobster bake, MarKel's can help you design the perfect gathering.

Working with your vision, we will simplify the overwhelming challenges of planning and hosting an event.  We can provide site options and are familiar with the logistics of locations in Castine and the surrounding Blue Hill Peninsula.  Site visits prior to the event allow us to assist with everything - special needs, layout, parking, rentals, ordinance compliance, and permitting.  Relax and enjoy the celebration!
