We used Catering by the Family for our wedding reception on October 18th and it was absolutely perfect! The food was excellent! The desserts were amazing and they set everything up perfect! The smores bar and chocolate fountain blew it out of the water! I will be sure to recommend them to anyone who needs catering in the future and will use them myself again! Thank you again!

Let me start out by saying that the food at CBTF was phenomenal! I read reviews and they were mixed about whether or not the quality of the food was good. We had the buffet with the pasta and carving station, sauteed chicken, green beans and red potatoes. So many people came up to us to express how fantastic the food tasted. Would highly recommend CBTF!!!!!

I heard about this company through a friend. I had been searching for a caterer for awhile and just couldn't find one I liked enough to book. We met with Steve about a year before our wedding. The meeting couldn't have gone better! My fiance (now husband), mom and I immediately liked him. We were invited to come to a tasting event and couldn't have been happier. The process of booking was easy. Steve answered all of my questions and responded quickly to email. We used food and bar services from CBTF and couldn't have had a better time. The amount spent and the quality were definitely perfect and in line with one another. The manager for our wedding made sure my husband and I were set with everything we needed and the additional staff were very helpful throughout our wedding night. Everything was such a blur but whoever our event manager was, he was amazing and my husband, mom and I would definitely recommend him! The entire process from quotes to booking to the actual wedding event went flawlessly. Steve helped us through every step and really made me feel confident in our decision. Steve and his staff do an amazing job and really show how much they love what they do with the service they provide. BEST CATERED FOOD I HAVE EVER HAD. Our guests said so too!

We found Catering by the Family because my sister used them for her wedding in November and everyone loved their food. I called and scheduled an appointment and found them to be very friendly, responsive, and cared about what the client would like and at what budget. Sandra Thiebe was our representative and was wonderful at keeping in touch. She actually had to track me down to have me confirm some choices! Not only was she exceptional, but the pricing was extremely fair for what we asked for (full buffet and bar with service. wedding was aprx 75 guests).

During the set up the staff manager Oma was a blessing! She helped my family get the rest of the décor set up and was fantastic all evening. I truly loved all the staff, from the servers to the bartender. All my guests commented on how they loved the food and service.

I will recommend Catering by the Family to anyone and everyone! Great service, food, and fair pricing. Thank you for your wonderful service. You are true professionals.

Sincerely, Larissa and Brian

We had a very small wedding (less than 45 people) so we did not feel the need to have a full service catered event. I contacted Catering by the Family and arranged for them to deliver and set up a buffet-style menu. They were very responsive, and I received a great price. The delivery arrived right on time, was set up beautifully, and the food tasted fantastic. I have already recommended them to my sister who is getting married in a few months!

I will always be thankful for this company. Every single thing they did was excellent! The way they setup the tables at the reception was so elegant, the way they setup the buffet, just WOW I was actually scared of touching it, I didn't want to mess it up! Oma and Henry along with their staff were wonderful. They always made sure that me, my husband and all the guest were taken care of. I can go on and on bragging about this company so to sum it up thank you Catering by the Family for making my wedding as special as it was. I highly recommend you.

Words cannot describe how grateful we are to have used catering by the family for our catering and bartending service. As any bride would have a hiccup on her wedding day mine was the cake - It never arrived - I was stressed and overwhelmed the staff that serviced the catering was so courteous and asked if everything was okay- I looked up and said well if your a magician and have a cake around that would be a huge help- Well my, my, my, the staff called the owner Steve and organized beautiful cakes for our cake cutting. Steve came personally for the delivery!!!! Like I said I am still so very speechless and how my day was saved by them not only doing the catering, bartending, but also the cake - It meant the world to us!! Thank you thank you so much we will definitely recommend you to everybody for everything !!! Thank you saving my wedding day with all the love in my heart!!

Donna from Catering by the Family was working with us in planning our wedding. She was very friendly and had some great suggestions for the linens that ended up looking beautiful. Prior to the week of our wedding, she was sick and had just been in a car accident but STILL came in to do our final meeting. The appetizers we picked were sooooo delicious - we had a plate of them in the bridal suite before pictures and we gobbled them up! The dinner was great. Even though we had buffet style, the servers came around and made sure everyone was taken care of and were very courteous. I will definitely recommend Catering by the Family.
