Catering & Food at our Waltham Location

Food is an excellent companion to paddling, and Charles River Canoe & Kayak is happy to arrange catering from any local restaurant. A selection of our favorites is presented below.
You can arrange the catering yourself (so you can confer directly with the caterer regarding menu selections), or we can make the arrangements: choose one of our Featured Selections (at right) or work with us to plan your menu for a fee of 20% of the food cost (minimum fee $50; food cost includes 6.25% state tax).
While our Waltham location does not have a picnic area, there are many, many restaurants located just steps away on vibrant Moody Street! We can help you pick out a perfect post-paddle spot for your group.
A very popular Davis Square restaurant serving authentic, downhome-style Southern food. Menu includes standard barbeque favorites like ribs, chicken, pulled pork, and more. See our Featured Selection from Redbones above.
Custom menus, delicious foods skillfully prepared and beautifully presented, detailed event planning, and impeccable service. Everything from finger foods and brownies to full meals. See our Featured Selection from Baker's Best above.
New England farmhouse-inspired bakery-café offering bagels and fresh sandwiches. In addition to visiting their nearby restaurant for a sit-down meal, you can order individual boxed meals or large platters for catering, so small and large groups can be accommodated equally well.
