If I could give a lower score I would. If you are thinking about hiring this vendor for your wedding, PLEASE AVOID. My biggest gripe is against Judee, the manager. However, after just speaking with the manager Art, I have no hope for their business.
I have a long list of things that went wrong with my experience wit ATB, but not enough space on here. Please see my review on The Knot or Yelp for specifics. I will leave the last portion of the review on here as well. BRIDES, PLEASE BEWARE. Manager and owner are unprofessional and inappropriate.

My husband and I talked to Art today. After I gave him our list of specific examples of things that went wrong, he told us he never wanted to do our wedding anyway. He said he knew we would just want money back for problems that occurred. I was blown away by this response. I brought up the fact that I have not once asked for money back - all I wanted was an apology. He then blamed my bridesmaid (who used to work for them) for everything that happened because she had "insider knowledge". FYI this insider knowledge is that they let you pay cash for servers, which Judee told me in our first meeting. Also, "linens" apparently. No clue what he was talking about as my package included linens (at one point I had asked Judee to send me info on upgrading linens, which was never done). Note: we got no discount either, so still wondering what this insider knowledge is. We went through my list again and I asked him to give me specific responses to those situations. He said he couldn't offer any explanations. He also said he did not feel like he had to apologize. My husband would be fired from his job if he did this. Clearly this business does not care about its customers. It won't give even an apology when one is due, or even a thank you for reaching out and giving feedback. Please beware. Or if you do go with them, feel free to contact me so I can give you all this alleged "insider knowledge."

We booked ATB Catering for our wedding. Food was fine, but everything else was a mess. Judee tried to cancel/change two out of our three meetings within an hour of the meeting. They failed to announce that our cake was being put out so we wasted $500 in Oakmont Bakery cake. We specifically asked for any extra food to be given to us - a) we paid for it b) we wanted it for our hotel after-party. They said there was none left. Zero. For a buffet setup, that means they either didn't have enough for our guests, or they threw it away/took it for themselves, even the pierogies that we purchased on our own and had served... which I have seen them do before, knowing people who have worked for them. They also never had us sign a contract - very unprofessional for the wedding industry.

When we called to express our issues after the wedding, Judee first said they don't work with DJs to announce cake... then she changed her tune and said she told one of the bridesmaids to have it announced - this did not happen. We asked to speak to the owner, Art, and he immediately attacked us, saying he wanted to get rid of us months ago because he knew we would have issues and want money back. We never wanted money, just to tell him how poorly Judee handled our wedding. He replied with "That's not my problem" and was never apologetic at all for any of the issues we had. We asked him to explain any of the issues above, and he was unable to, but still refused to apologize for any of the poorly handled issues.

I run a business also, and if I handled a customer issue like either of the two of them, I would not only hurt our brand/business, but probably lose my job.

We decided to go with a mix of All The Best Catering and Pittsburgh BBQ (same company). The food was delicious and worth every penny! Judee is definitely best to get ahold of by phone. She does not do very well responding to e-mails, but she was very helpful nonetheless!
This caterer knows what they're doing and they are very on top of things. The set up all of our tables for us as well as placed all of our favors, plated our cookies and our appetizers, and served the food. Everyone loved the food and it was great!! I am really happy we chose All The Best!

Judee was extremely helpful leading up to the wedding and she and her team worked with the venue to coordinate all the set up so I didn't have to worry about anything. Most importantly, the food was amazing! My husband and I made it a point to eat our dinner since it was so good, and our guests raved about the food, too. We missed our cocktail hour (which was not the plan), but the All the Best staff still made sure the bridal party got appetizers and drinks before we made our big entrance. Definitely recommend!

We worked closely with Judee and Tracy at All the Best, and I have to say that they were exceptional to work with. They made the stressful business of choosing a caterer, figuring out menus, and coordinating everything day-of very easy and slightly less stressful. Judee was very prompt in her responses by email or phone. Our wedding was held at a venue that did not have a full kitchen, so they had to do extra work getting the food to the venue, keeping it warm until dinner, and serving everyone. I got SO many compliments about the food, and I couldn't have agreed more. It was absolutely fantastic. The work that Judee and Tracy did preparing for my wedding was outstanding. They went the extra mile to make sure everything was set up exactly perfectly (I even gave them diagrams because I'm anal about that.) and it was just beautiful. I had a pickle bar at my wedding (which was a HUGE hit!) and they set it up beautifully. Judee and Tracy coordinated the linen delivery, decor of the hall, and all the little details that somehow get done on your big day... that's Judee and Tracy. And they did an absolutely beautiful job. I cannot recommend All the Best enough. It was an absolute pleasure working with them. They also own the Pittsburgh Barbecue Company next door, which is SO yummy!

We did used the bbq option (Pittsburgh Bbq Co.) and it was amazing. Everyone raved about the food. We heard it was the best brisket many of our guests had ever had AND we also heard the stuffed portobello was the best vegetarian/vegan wedding option our veggie friends had ever had. We had a diy wedding in South Park and All the Best supplied a great bar tending and wait staff. I would use them again in a second. Highly recommended!!

All the Best was definitely true to its name! The food both looked and tasted amazing... the cheesy mashed potatoes were out of this world! We had several guests with food allergies and dietary restrictions, and they provided special allergen-free plates for them at no extra cost. Our coordinator for the day, Tracy, was super friendly and helpful, and made sure that the bridal party had plenty to eat since we weren't going through the buffet line. (we actually got a chance to sit down and eat a full meal at our own wedding...it's almost hard to believe!)

My only complaint is a trivial one...they had told us ahead of time that we should bring our wedding cookies to the catering office the day before the wedding so they could tray them. When we showed up to the reception hall to decorate the day before the wedding, we found out that we were supposed to have brought our cookies straight there. So, a bunch of the cookies never made it to the wedding. No complaints against the food or the service, just some logistics/communication that didn't quite work out.

I had dealt with one lady, Judee, for over a year and the day before the wedding I was told we were going to have someone else in charge the day of our wedding. I was very disappointed. The lady in charge demanded money from my mother in law stating I had 20 more guests that originally stated. (I had several empty chairs at tables and even had a full empty table of 8, so this statement was IMPOSSIBLE). One of the bartenders wouldn't serve me shots when they served them from the time cocktail hour opened. We had grape and other juices to serve to the guests that weren't drinking for toasts. They were M.I.A. and never served. He even told me in these exact words, "Your guests are a bunch of alcoholics." The caterer in charge told my mother in law that there was no more food left to give to us...there were at least 2 containers filled with food in the kitchen stowed away.
Overall, the food was PHENOMENAL! This was the second time I enjoyed their food. If you do use this company, make sure you have everything straight with them to the fullest prior. I would use this company again but I would specifically ask and deal with Judee and request not to use the few employees that were there the night of my wedding.

Fabulous caterer! Food was great, but service was even better! Tracy, the coordinator, was so flexible & paid attention to every detail. She worked her butt off the days leading up & the day of our wedding & everything was amazing. Tables were decorated beautifully. We had a cocktail hour, family-style dinner, and wine service, and everything went so smoothly. Also got fabulous remarks on the delicious italian meatballs. Highly reccommend. Thanks Tracy & Judee!
