Biddle Street provided the food for my daughter's wedding.
The food, staff, and the service were OUTSTANDING!!! The lamb chops that were served were tender, juicy, and delicious. People are calling and talking about how good all of the food was but, especially the lamb chops. I will definitely use them again for any of my catering needs. BRAVO!!!

We were extremely pleased with every aspect of how Biddle Street Catering and Events handled our wedding reception. The event coordinator, Erin Brice, pretty much acted as my wedding planner and was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. She was very easy to talk to and get in touch with, and she was always willing to help me out with anything I needed. The food was incredible and the service was excellent. The entire event went very smoothly, even though everyone showed up an hour early! The catering staff was able to accommodate everyone and everything was ready on time. I would definitely recommend Biddle Street to anyone else planning an event and would certainly use them again. They are wonderful!

Ginny and Staff were AMAZING. She was always very helpful and willing to accommodate every request I had. Ginny helped my husband and I even plan portions of our event, neither one of us had experience planning a wedding before and Ginny was able to help us figure out timing and such with the reception.

You also can't beat the food. We went in to meet Ginny with a plan that our guests would be able to identify what they were eating without asking and Ginny made that happen. Just a week ago, my husband and I attended a wedding with a large group of friends and they couldn't help but comment back to the food at our wedding was compared to what we were eating.

I have recommended Ginny to many friends and family members and will continue to go to her for any event that requires catering!

Our reception was held at the BMI with Biddle Street Catering from the approved caterer's list. Ginny Kearns from Biddle was very responsive to my initial inquiries. I sent emails to 3 caterers with what I thought I wanted and Ginny came up with a proposal right away. She gave us excellent suggestions and was very easy to deal with. She worked with our band and coordinated the evening. We went with Biddle's standard linens and the tables looked beautiful. The cocktail hour hors d'oeuvres were displayed beautifully and were very good. The dinner of crab cake and filet was delicious. At the BMI there is no kitchen so the caterers bring their own. Biddle did an incredible job. Thanks to Biddle and Ginny Kearns for a wonderful job!

Pam Lightner at Biddle Street is amazing! I literally went to her with a budget knowing that I didn't have much room to be flexible and not only did she meet it, she also somehow worked it out that we were able to include all of the decor we wanted.

We narrowed don the catering possibilities to two caterers based on our budgets. We felt a bit pressured and uncomfortable at our meeting with the first caterer. However, when we met with Biddle Street, the tasting alone was a clear sign that we should work with them. They made out entire menu so that we were able to taste each individual dish that would be offered. After the tasting was done, she handed us a doggy bag with all of the leftovers from the tasting. We had enough food for lunches for two more days.

Being a designer and extremely specific about what I was looking for. Pam met with me numerous times about the floor plans, the hand made centerpieces, the hanging flowers for the ceremony (which they also set up at the venue for us), and of course the food. She worked directly with Michele the venue manager, the decorators, and our day-of coordinator so that there was very little go-between that could have resulted in a really bad game of telephone.

Every time I had a question she was either available by phone, or email. She was quick to respond typically within a few hours. She and the staff was extremely patient with all of our guests, a few of which became a bit hard to handle after a significant amount of alcohol.

Brian and I didn't have a chance to eat much due to photos and of course other activities on the wedding day timeline. However, the reviews of all of the food was fabulous. Apparently the appetizer dishes were scraped clean. The Biddle Street team packed up all of the leftovers and the next day, Brian and I pigged out on them. They were delicious!

I really can't say enough about how great Biddle Street and Pam were. I highly recommend giving them a call!

Biddle St did a fantastic job catering our wedding!!! From our first visit until our last payment, every representative of Biddle St showed remarkable flexibility, professionalism and interest in our desires. For example, we called them one weekend when we were looking for venues and happened to drive by their location to see if they could see us that day. (We had known from a family friend who used them extensively, that they were excellent). The owner was very flexible and told us he would meet with us whenever we were ready.

We knew we wanted a gluten free and vegetarian wedding and that this was a tall order for any caterer. Biddle St was the only ones in Baltimore (we also saw Classic Catering, Zeffert & Gold, Absolutely Perfect) who took on this challenge with grace. Biddle St was empathetic and respectful about the requirement and absolutely perfect about doing it. They worked with us to create a fabulous menu. At no charge, they prepared a lavish "tasting menu" for us and sent us home with leftovers that enjoyed eating for the next three days. (By contrast, we went to several other highly acclaimed caterers and had a very different experience). Even though our date wasn't far off, Biddle St also never pressured us to make a decision to go with them.

Given the delicious food and that top-noched service, we were delighted to find that they were the most affordable by far. After our wedding, many guests commented on how delicious the food including many who could eat gluten and had no idea that it was gluten free.

Biddle St's gluten free recipes were so delicious that we had them deliver baked goods to our rehearsal dinner site. They were happy to fulfill this request and did so at a bargain basement price.

In the days leading up to our wedding, Biddle St was attentive to all of our needs including many that were not caterer related. At our wedding, Biddle's St's representative completely on the ball and were attentive to many needs that went beyond the responsibilities in our contract.

Overall, they made the final days before the wedding day itself a lot less stressful than it would have been. We would use them again in a heartbeat and highly recommend them.

(By contrast, we went to several other highly acclaimed caterers and had a very different experience). Even though our date wasn't far off, Biddle St also never pressured us to make a decision to go with them.

Given the delicious food and that top-noched service, we were delighted to find that they were the most affordable by far. After our wedding, many guests commented on how delicious the food including many who could eat gluten and had no idea that it was gluten free.

Biddle St's gluten free recipes were so delicious that we had them deliver baked goods to our rehearsal dinner site. They were happy to fulfill this request and did so at a bargain basement price.

In the days leading up to our wedding, Biddle St was attentive to all of our needs including many that were not caterer related. At our wedding, Biddle's St's representative completely on the ball and were attentive to many needs that went beyond the responsibilities in our contract.

Overall, they made the final days before the wedding day itself a lot less stressful than it would have been. We would use them again in a heartbeat and highly recommend them. Read less

I worked with Pam at Biddle Street and I can't say enough great things about her work and her team. From the beginning, she was so easy to talk with and she was so willing and helpful to make our wedding what we wished for. We had a pretty casual menu, sliders, crab cakes, MD style chicken tenders, fried green tomatoes, and everything was absolutely amazing. The crab cakes were some of the best I've had. All of our guests loved the food. Also, Pam was willing to do some much to help our day be as stress free as possible. They let us bring pretty much everything we had for decor to their office the day before and brought it to our venue and set things up. The team members that Biddle Street brought to work the event very just as friendly, enthusiastic and helpful. They were such a pleasure to work with and I would absolutely use them again and definitely recommend them to friends.
