We held our reception on 10/11/2014 at Fricanos in Muskegon. We couldn't have been more pleased with the quality, quantity, and professionalism of all the staff! Our evening went off without a hitch. Would most definitely recommend this catering company! Thanks Dave!!!

P.s. The turkey was out of this world delicious.

Above and Beyond Catering did a wonderful job catering our wedding. The food was fresh and delicious, people are still taking about how good the food was. The only thing I didn't like was that we weren't allowed to take the food home with us which was a bummer because as the bride I was so busy I didn't have time to enjoy the food as much as I would have liked to. But other than that it was great and we had plenty of food for everyone.

I am a member of The Muskegon Catholic Central Class of 1964 and we just completed our 50th class reunion the weekend of August 8-9. We all had a great time and really enjoyed reconnecting with fellow classmates and the events that were planned. The only downer was at our main event, the reunion dinner on Saturday night which was catered by Above and Beyond on Pontaluna Road in Norton Shores, which I understand is located in Grand Rapids. We spent a LOT of money on this one event and Above and Beyond let us down SUPER BIG TIME!! There were a good number of us who traveled over 1000 miles to attend this very special event. I personally traveled over 1500 miles and others traveled over 2000 miles expecting a decent main event dinner. There was food we had pre-ordered and prepaid at a very pricey cost that was not served and the quality of the rest of the food was down right poor to say the least AND they ran out of food!! From the "After Reunion" surveys we have received from classmates they were all VERY disappointed in the food. We found out that evening that they had screwed a wedding reception party the same way a few weeks prior to our event, not enough food. If you are planning an event using Above and Beyond as the caterer, DON'T DO IT!!! You'll be sorry if you do.

I thought the catering was terrible. It's like they forgot about us even after we paid big bucks!
No entre, and even ran out of food for at least a third of the guests - totally inexcusable!
And the food that was there was marginal to say the least.

Would never hire them back.

I have been to hundreds of catered events, and have been responsible for food service and all guest service when serving as general manager for a guest ranch. I have also hired caterers for numerous employee events such as Christmas socials, annual employee recognition dinners and the like. I know a bit about catering, food quality, service, and quantity of food. The catering by Above and Beyond was anything but above any reasonable standard of quality and customer service. It was the most terrible example of catering service I have ever experienced. The food was of inferior quality, variety and they ran out of food so about a third of our 50th. class reunion participants had to settle for pizza that they ordered in, stating they could not get more prepared food per the menu we arranged with them. I'm told our organizing committee spend $30.00 per plate, and I can tell you that the meal for those who did get food would be valued at about $5.00 per plate if that, as it was simply finger food with no main course. Above and Beyond could not have spend more than $2.00 or $3.00 per plate for those who did get fed. Simply stated, it was a "rip off" where we were exploited, and a travesty for such as special event as a 50th class reunion with classmates coming from all over the country looking forward to an enjoyable meal. A representative from Above and Beyond got up on the stage and apologized and stated there would be a rebate on the meal. However, as far as I know no rebate has been forthcoming. I have encouraged the organizing committee to take this business to small claims court to recoup what we paid, or at leas the majority of it. If you are considering a catering service, I recommend you avoid this unscrupulous outfit like the plague. They are an insult to the many reputable caterers out there providing quality, reliable service and high quality food. Running out of food for such an event is totally unacceptable, as is not providing the agreed menu.

Above and Beyond catered our 50th class reunion. What a disaster!!! We prepaid at a cost of $37/per plate, plus we ordered and prepaid for extra plates and even had 10 no-show and there still was not enough food to feed all of our guests, They ran out of food while people were in line. Their manager went up on the stage and announced that there was no more food and they were going to order pizzas. They had 5 pizzas delivered which still wasn't enough to feed those who didn't get any food. Imagine paying $37 a plate for a piece of Domino's Pizza. What a disaster! We are so disappointed, we worked so hard to make this event so special. We paid so much money for great quality and service received less than mediocre. The food we did get was horrible, the bartender was terrible. Bad service all the way!!! Don't hire Above and Beyond for your special day, they do not deliver as promised!

MCC class of 1964

I'm still waiting for the dinner for my wife and myself, we paid
$ 100.00 for a place to eat, the food that was as tough as shoe leather, what I thought was suppose to be appetizers, turned out to be the main meal what a joke, we will make sure all the schools are aware of the kind of service to expect from your vendors

I attended Muskegon Catholic Central's 50th year class reunion and the event was catered by Above and Beyond in Norton Shores. I do not make a habit of writing comments but, in this instance, felt it was extremely necessary to make it known that the service and food provided by Above and Beyond was extremely inferior. They ran out of food before everyone was served and had nothing in reserve to fall back on in such an instance. The people that did manage to get food found it mediocre, less than appetizing and the brisket extremely tough (actually not edible). You would think a catering service that touts such professionalism and knowledge of the catering business would be able to plan for 200 people with no problem and at $30+ a plate would serve a much, much better quality of food be it appetizers or a meal. I definitely would not or will not recommend this business to any friends, family or business associates.

I attended my 50th reunion from MCC on Aug. 9, 2014. Food wise it was a disaster. The snacks tasted really bad, meat was tough. They finally brought it pizzas but that isn't what we paid all that money for. I would never attend an event at Above and Beyond nor recommend it to anyone.

I attended a 50th class reunion on August 9 catered by Above and Beyond. My high expectations were quickly diminished. There wasn't even close to enough food for our group, the bartenders and servers, including their attire was not professional. They provided a partial refund (that would certainly not compensate for an experience like this at our event). I would never recommend this catering service to anyone..
