At Catering by Michael’s, we’ve been
providing more than mere food since our
humble as pie beginnings in the Chicagoland
area in 1980. Along the way, we’ve been honored
with awards and recognition as "Best Caterer
on the North Shore." But that distinction and
our growth to an organization of 120 full-time
employees, has come as a result of "smaller"
things: one-on-one service, attention to minute
details, and a dedication to quality that is
fierce and reflected everywhere.

Count on us for everything under the sun to
make your outdoor party the "in" event of the
year. If you grill us on how it’s done, we’ll offer
the following consistent recipe: uncompromising
attention to quality and detail combined with
the finest food, accoutrements, presentational
skills and a lot of sizzle and flair. Count on us
to provide the gourmet gamut from appetizers
and entrees worthy of worship. When less of a
barbecue won’t due, call Catering by Michael’s. Read less

My husband and I selected Catering by Michael's as the number one choice to cater our wedding. The staff was very friendly, knowledgeable about what they were serving, and above all, the food was AMAZING! We elected to go with a butlered-style dinner service (passed Hors d'oeuvres), which worked out incredibly well for how many guests we had and the space of our venue.

Some of our favorite dishes from the evening included: Tomato Bisque, served with grilled cheese, Chinese chicken chopped salad, pulled brisket barbacoa, spicy tuna cones, and chocolate French macaroons.

In reality, I wish I could list the entire menu because everything was so delicious and typing this review has me hungry for more. We highly recommend these guys! If you are looking to cater an event, definitely schedule a tasting and I'm sure you'll fall in love with the food just as we did!

Catering by Michael's was one of the BEST wedding meals that I have had! They may be a little more expensive than competitors, but you pay for what you get- a restaurant-quality meal that is hot (they cook on site) and delicious. Aside from the actual food, the wait staff is professional and prompt. There was 1 wait staff for two tables, so the service was top notch. We are so glad we went with Catering by Michael's because all of our guests raved over our food and the staff. One guest even went to the kitchen to compliment the head chef!

We had our wedding at Independence Grove and they only use Catering by Michael’s and I know way they do now. The food was amazing and so where the chefs. We had a blast at the tasting and they make is so personal, it’s just you and the guest you bring. The chef came in and worked out all the dietary issues we had. Changed menu items around and created new stuff just for me. I am vegetarian and I am never tasted something so good in my life at a wedding for a vegetarian. My plate was empty when they took it away. I loved the verity of appetizers they offer the Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese Fingers is a must and they also made Fruit Kabobs for us so refreshing and with having Vegans at the wedding they truly loved having something to snack on. We had their Ice Cream Sunday Bar instead of a cake and that was the biggest hit a long with the late night snack of Soft Pretzels (Cinnamon and Sugar or Normal with cheese sauce if you wanted). They are so willing to work with everything you want for your day!! Please look into Catering by Michael’s you will not be let down.

We had our post nuptial party in the north pavilion at Independence Grove. The reservation, the catering, and all the details went through Jami at Catering by Michael's. We were extremely pleased with how everything turned out. The catering staff was very friendly and did a great job, and many of our guests commented on how good the food was. Jami was fantastic to work with from the very beginning all the way through to the day of the party. We highly recommend her and Catering by Michael's!

Catering by Michael's did an amazing job at our wedding. They are the exclusive caterer to Independence Grove so we didn't exactly pick them but I couldn't be happier with the choice. The food choices were amazing; there were literally dozens and dozens of options for appetizers, entrees and desserts. The entrees came out hot (all 200 of them) and the presentation was beautiful. Our sweet table was so impressive! There was a milk fountain! I obviously chose milk and cookies but didn't have any idea that it would be in the form of a fountain. The quality was unmatched and we're still receiving compliments from our guests about the food. They are definitely an example of you get what you pay for though so if you're looking for a budget caterer they might not be the way to go.

So Catering by Michael's is not the cheapest caterer, but their food is delicious! We got so many comments on how the food was amazing, and they accommodated my last minute requests for a late night snack. Everything was great and the only thing I was upset about was that my husband didn't share his plate of food! (We were suppose to share two different meal options since they were so good, but he forgot.)

The cake from Catering by Michael's is contracted through Oak Mill Bakery and Deerfield Bakery. The cake tasting wasn't very good but I knew the two companies made delicious cakes, and the cake itself was delicious the day of.

The feedback from our guests was that they loved the Hour devours, the dinner & the dessert table!
Some guests said the at "the Hour devours melted in your mouth" I also received good feedback from our Vegetarian plates- they said the dinner and salad was very good!

Everything was very good.
