It is our mission to prepare with honesty, execute with integrity and deliver beyond expectations.
As a mid-size caterer we are “not too big and not too small”. We are selective on how many events we produce in one night in order to guarantee personalized service, custom menu creation and event design. We take a “boutique” approach to each event that we are a part of.
Our staff is comprised of the best in their fields, from event planners to chefs to event managers to front of the house staff. Handpicked by our management team, all our staff are certified by the highest standards in our industry. Every person who will work on your event, from event planner to chef to dishwasher, is focused on our core mission ~ delivering a remarkable experience with an attention to customer service and detail that exceeds expectations.

Not only do we rely on the Rhode Island’s natural beauty to bring guests to our business, but we also pride ourselves on the fresh ingredients that local fishermen and farmers are able to procure from the region. For these reasons, preserving the environment and being conscious of our environmental impact is extremely important to our company. Read less

If I could give this caterer more stars, I absolutely would. Their service is impeccable, their kindness and warmth is amazing, and their food... just wow. Shannon Driscoll was the most helpful and amazing coordinator I could ever ask for. I don't even have words enough to explain how grateful I am to her and her staff! My guests adored the food and thought it was elegant, creative, and of course very tasty! Highly recommend!

I wholeheartedly believe I had the best caterer on the planet for my wedding day. Even going into it, I had very high expectations for the food I wanted served and the customer service I was looking for - Blackstone excelled on both fronts. Our first experience was at their tasting facility in Middletown, RI after already tasting with the most well-known caterer out of MA. Blackstone blew them out of the water in all categories - presentation, attention to detail, taste, customer service and truly making me feel that my business / wedding was of the upmost importance. We worked with Shannon (well known as St. Shannon for her patience amongst other wedding vendors), and from the start I felt completely at ease and that Shannon had our best intentions at heart. She took us through the menu and options diligently and we choose selections like clam chowder in adorable porcelain mugs with a clam fritter perched on top, mini-lobster rolls, fish & chips in paperboats as appetizers. Quintessential New England items, which I loved for our out of town guests. For mains, we went with the halibut topped with a fresh chimichurri sauce sitting on a bed of citrus risotto and snap beans as well as a filet accompanied by a cabernet demi-glace and smashed, shallot potatoes. Delicious. For dessert we had strawberry shortcakes arranged in mini mason jars, whoopie pies, crème brulee and the thrown in surprise of passed warm cookies and milk shooters. My mouth waters even two weeks later thinking about these dishes! They tasted no different on the day of our wedding as they did at the tasting which is incredible seeing as we had over 150 guests. Even John, the owner stopped by the day of to check in, which being in a customer service field, I really appreciated. If you are looking for a truly buttoned up, inventive, personal caterer who goes the extra mile for their couples go no further than Blackstone and Shannon. I will be trying to relive these dishes for years to come!

Shannon and the rest of the Blackstone Catering team was wonderful to work with. All of the wedding guests commented how wonderful the meal was (and we were in a reception tent with no kitchen services). This was even prepared under less than ideal conditions since it was a new venue and the power wasn't supporting the catering tent in addition to the other services like lighting and DJ. I highly recommend Blackstone Catering.

I cannot say enough great things about Blackstone, the food was outstanding, they were so accommodating, very friendly and professional. The coordinator leading up to our wedding was so helpful and so kind and the staff the day of was wonderful, warm and professional. Everyone was raving about the food all night! We were on a budget but really good in season food was important to us and Blackstone made that happen for us at a very reasonable rate. I would highly recommend them!!

Over a year ago, after a long search we found the Glen Manor and fell in love. Previously we had lists of pros and cons of wedding venues but when we experienced the Glen we simply asked where to sign. The catering staff were setting up and we asked which company they worked for. They replied, "Blackstone" with a joyous sense of pride. That night we Googled the company and were overwhelmed with their accolades, website, and delectable offerings.

I quickly reminded my food connoisseur partner, that the best food in the world would come at a cost and so we braced for the initial email response from the cater on pricing. To our relief, they were able to accommodate our budget. Anyone considering a Newport wedding will certainly need to set realistic expectations no matter whom they choose. That being said, they can tailor a menu from an extravagant several course sit down meal to a simpler beautiful buffet.

Our main contact Karen, exudes energy and passion. When you walk into a room, she lights up to see you as if you were a present on Christmas day or a long lost friend. The moment we met her, we knew Blackstone was the right choice for us. Honestly, of all our amazing vendors, she left the largest impression. The owner also warmly greeted us at our first meeting.

The day of the wedding their was a glitch with the florist, and without missing a beat Blackstone stepped in to help resolve that issue without ever worrying us. While one might consider a cater to only deal with food, they had their hand in nearly all aspects of the day and worked in perfect harmony with the venue care taker like Jennifer Lopez in the Wedding Planner.

The food was fantastic. Everyone warned us that you never get to eat at your own wedding. Not the case at Blackstone. We even had a personal waiter who appeared out of thin air at the exact moment we needed a drink or a bite to eat.

They deserve more stars than there are in the sky.

Blackstone was WONDERFUL! First the food: Everyone is still talking about how delicious everything was! Blackstone made everything so tasty! the food was delicious and i can still remember how great everything tasted. I had a zillion crab cakes, :) I couldn't get enough! The fish and chips boat was the perfect touch to our New England garden wedding. The food looked beautiful and was just perfect. I can't say enough great things about how delicious everything was. The service: IMPECCABLE! I am in the event industry myself so I had high standards and expectations. I knew Blackstone would not disappoint and sure enough they exceeded every thought i had. The staff was always on top of things. We had a staff member just dedicated to my husband and I for the entire night. She was so attentive to what we needed!! The staff made every move to make sure guests were happy and satisfied. I had a guest who had trouble walking and they brought the hors d'oeuvres to him so he could be comfortable and still enjoy the goodies. Karen and Dada were fabulous! So on top of everything. They seemed truly happy for us and seemed to enjoy being there at our wedding to help make our day spectacular. They just have an ALL STAR staff combine with ALL STAR food. Everything was just wonderful.

Absolutely the best. We used Blackstone for both our wedding reception and our Sunday brunch the next day. The food at our wedding was unbelievable and beyond my expectations from our tasting. Every appetizer (lamb chops, corn fritters, lobster rolls, mini fish and chips, stuffed mushrooms) was amazing. The raw bar was outrageous and impressed all the guests. Oh, and let's not forget the FILET AND LOBSTER with mashed potatoes! Holy whoa, I'm still dreaming about it. I went all out on food and every single guest raved about it - the menu was totally customizable, and Karen (my absolute favorite vendor) always said we'd figure out how to make anything I wanted work. Adding hometown beer to the bar? No problem. Husband is obsessed with chocolate chip cookies? We're on it. The week of my wedding, when I started panicking about random details? Karen told me she had everything already set! I love Blackstone so, so much! They even have a designated server following you and your husband around to make sure you eat and drink to your heart's content (oh, and we did). It was so wonderful to have Karen there on our big day and it totally reassured me to know she had everything under control. In short, amazing food, amazing experience, amazing service - these are the pros. You really can't go wrong with these amazing caterers. I want to plan another party just to work with them!

Blackstone is la creme de la creme in Southern Rhode Island caterers. Our sales manager Danielle was super responsive and detail oriented. Our tasting was fantastic and the food on wedding day was JUST AS excellent. Everyone raved about the cheese table during cocktail hour. We had a signature cocktail that required a non-standard juice and liquor and not only was Blackstone happy to provide the needed items, the bartender totally nailed it - tons of guests asked us for the recipe. We chose to do a preset salad with 2 dinner stations and the value was extraordinary. LOVED Blackstone and hope to use them again someday!
