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.

I don't even know where to begin in thanking everyone at Blackstone Caterers for the phenomenal, over-the-top service we received at our wedding on June 20th at Blithewold Mansion, Gardens & Arboretum in Bristol, RI. My fiancee (now husband), parents and I have been working with Karen Riley Tungett for over a year to plan this event. She has been a true pleasure to work with. She is responsive, thoughtful, kind and professional. She remembers the little things - i.e. specific votives Mom and I liked from the Newport Bridal Show; she made sure they were on our reception tables for the wedding day. The tasting that we did with Karen this past winter was my favorite day of the entire wedding planning process. Blackstone goes above and beyond to make sure that you and your guests are well taken care of. There is a reason they are the best in the business - they have the best product (food, drinks, planning), paired with the best people. Cindy, our day-of coordinator was fantastic. She made sure that everything ran smoothly, and was warm and friendly. As Nick and I walked around with our photographer taking pictures during part of the cocktail hour, a server followed us with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. Our bridal party and parents were also well taken care of. My mom (with my aunt and a friend), made homemade Italian cookies and mini-cheesecakes. Blackstone made sure they were displayed on the dessert bar. Along with the florist (Sayles Livingston), Blackstone made sure that our reception tent and decor was just stunning. Blackstone also coordinated renting specialty linens (Navy liberty key, with accents of coral solid linens) through Rentals Unlimited. You will not be underquoted either - the estimate we received early-on in the process was essentially the exact total cost when all was said and done. I promise, you will never regret choosing Blackstone Caterers. Thank you, Blackstone- and especially Karen. You are the absolute best.

A++++++ service! I worked with Karen and she was by far my favorite vendor. She was incredibly helpful with absolutely everything and went above and beyond to make our day perfect. We had a long engagement so she had to put up with my questions for quite some time, but she was always incredibly patient, helpful, and responsive. She always emails you back within minutes! She even dealt with my mom who was being a bit picky about wine selections :) AND she went out of her way to get my nephew some vanilla ice cream so he could take his pill during the reception. During our reception, she brought us a tray of HD's to the wedding suite since she knew we probably wouldn't get to eat otherwise (true!). And she came over to tell us when the sunset light was perfect for sunset photos, which wasn't even her responsibility but it was so nice that she was looking out for us and we were so grateful that she did! Absolutely PHENOMENAL service. And the food is outstanding. I will sing her praises all day and recommend her to anyone getting married in the area.

Professional and delicious are understatements in describing Blackstone Catering. Danielle and company were absolutely the best to work with - so friendly, helpful with coordinating details, prompt with emails, competitive rates. We received so many compliments on how delicious the food was at the wedding, from the hors d'oeuvres to salads to entrees, everything was so good. The staff were very professional and executed everything I asked them to set up just perfectly. There was nothing left out of place. Danielle put my mind at ease about the details so that I could enjoy the planning experience. Blackstone truly lived up to their reputation. I would hire them for another function of mine again in a heartbeat.

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.

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.
