Chef Jack's Catering provided outstanding service at our daughter's wedding. From the tasting date to the end of service on the wedding day everything was absolutely perfect. Many of our guests commented on the quality of food, the presentation, the service and the fact that everything was hot including the vegetables. We used Chef Jack for the bar service as well and again perfect in every way. Because of the friendly staff, the quality of food and the ability of co-ordinate our entire event we hosted a most enjoyable wedding reception. Thanks especially to Tony and Candy for providing the experience and professionalism we expected. Why would you choose any other company when Chef Jack's is truly the best of the best!!

We asked for a very unique event that alternated food courses and musical interludes over approximately 2 1/2 hours. While it was definitely out of their comfort zone, Chef Jack's did a brilliant job coordinating the flow of our reception. Besides enjoying the food ourselves we've also had many compliments on the food from our guests. The entire team at Chef Jacks was professional from start to finish always responding to emails and phone calls promptly, listening to our desires, and doing their best to fulfill them.

Chef Jack's was our caterer for our wedding and they were absolutely fantastic. They were the 3rd caterer we visited and did a tasting with and when we met with them from the start we were so incredibly pleased.

Their responsiveness and willingness to work with couples is outstanding. They replied quickly and were willing to answer questions, etc. My husband's father made the desserts and Chef Jack's was completely fine with storing it all and plating it for us. It was such a relief and it never felt like we were burdening them.

When it came to the actual event they couldn't have been any better. I worked primarily with Candy from Chef Jack's and on the day of the event she came up to my husband and I and gave us this genuinely warm congratulations and hug. Something very small but something that really meant a lot...like it was important for her to give us our special day. The staff were just the same and we weren't the only ones to notice. All of our guests raved about how great, friendly and fast the service was at our wedding.

As for the quality of food it couldn't get much better. We did their duet plate with chicken and a filet and it was absolutely delicious. The appetizers, salads, entrees, dinner rolls, etc. were just outstanding. When doing other tastings we were not very happy with the quality of the food but Chef Jack's definitely delivered and our guests agreed.

Overall, you'd be crazy not to go with Chef Jack's. They made our day so special. Thank you!!

I cannot recommend Chef Jack's highly enough. I planned my wedding from San Francisco for a Wisconsin wedding and did not have the option of flying home to do a tasting. My husband and I were blown away by the quality of food, the service of the staff and the deameanor with which the event planners calmly and collectedly handled the logisitcs of our wedding.

I wholeheartedly recommend Chef Jack's services and know my guests would too!

Chef Jack's was just a pleasure to work with. So responsive to questions, and the food was AMAZING. "Not your typical wedding food" as many guests stated. My brother is quoted "this is the best filet I've had in years". We just got back from our honeymoon and people are still talking about the food!! Chef Jacks is highly recommended!!!

From the moment we started to search for a caterer for our wedding reception, Chef Jack's stood out among the rest. Not only did they come highly recommended by our venue, they responded to every e-mail or voicemail within minutes...when other companies took days or weeks. This alone made me one happy, relaxed bride. Everyone at Chef Jack's was friendly and eager to help us create the wedding reception of our dreams and went above and beyond to add little touches that made our wedding feel special. I was blown away by our table settings and treated like royalty by their professional staff. Our guests continue to rave about the food at our wedding and all said it was a meal they would have gladly paid for in a restaurant . In addition to the quality of their food and service, Chef Jack's was an exceptional value for our money and worked with us to stay within our budget. I would highly recommend Chef Jack's to anyone looking to plan a special event and could not have planned such a beautiful day without them!

The food was OUT OF THIS WORLD! I have never heard so many people at a wedding compliment the food! I've never had food that delicious at a wedding!

The professionalism and helpfulness of the staff were second to none.

Set up a consultation with Chef Jack's! You will not regret it one bit! And set some time aside to eat at your reception (you'd be surprised how easy it is to let that time pass you by!), you really really don't want to miss this!

We had our wedding at the Holy Hill Art Farm in Hubertus, WI. Chef Jack's did all of the cooking on site and the food was amazing! Additionally, their service was GREAT -- very professional and kept things running smoothly and on time. They also had several nice touches such as chocolate covered strawberries at each table and chocolate cups with Bailey's after dinner. The appetizers were also delicious and made sure to make the bride and groom feel special by knowing our names and making sure we were being fed during cocktail hour.

Finally - we also did the bar service and table linens with Chef Jacks --- both were top notch as well!!! Great bar selection and the tables looked beautiful.

A special thanks to Tony and Candy - you guys are awesome!

I cannot brag enough of chef jacks. Absolutely perfect on every possible aspect. I still hear almost a year later that it was the best wedding food people have ever had. They were professional and kind during every phone call, email, and communication session. We had more then one tasting because of being uncertain about a few things. They had no problem with this. You also get a full portion at the tasting and not just a little sample. Excellent service and outstanding food!

Chef Jacks was wonderful for our wedding. We did all hand passed apps and the staff was great! We even got a couple extra apps since it was such a hard decision. The food was wonderful ant they accomodated myself and brother with our gluten allergy. They also provided gluten free beer for my brother! The staff was attentive and so helpful throughout everything- making sure we had everything we needed and even letting us in a little earlier to make sure everything was set up and give us some extra peace of mind. I would recommend them to anyone!

Top notch! Chef Jack's was amazing to work with. They made us feel as if our guests were at a 5 start restaurant, actually that is what our guests said. They have never had a meal at a wedding like ours and our wedding has officially gone down in history as the best wedding people have ever been too--I'll take that.

Only one problem we had, our cake, we ordered extra cake so people could get larger slices instead of the typical wedding cake slices. Yes it was our fault that we didn't tell them specifically to give people bigger slices, but I guess we had hoped that by them seeing how much cake we had they would have been a little more generous with the slices. Again, we are equally at fault for not telling them. Either way we have had our delicious wedding cake last for about a week for us and many of our guests to enjoy. I guess Bitter sweet, haha!

Chef Jack's was an absolute pleasure to work with. They were willing to meet with us and meet any requests we had. We had the Chicken en Croute and Filet Mignon combination dish at our wedding, the guests loved the food, Jeremy, our daughter and I were not as impressed with the meal as we were at our tasting, but we all assured each other that it was simply the fact that they were cooking for 200 people and they only had to cook for 3 at the tasting...Tammy was the head waiter at our event, she was on top of everything, and routinely checking in to see if she was needed or if she could help with anything. They even sent a tray of appetizers to my now husband and I while we were doing our photos!! The Bailey's and chocolate cordial cups were another hit, as well as the Martini Salad and Chocolate Covered Strawberries. I don't believe we could have found a better caterer! What drew us to Chef Jack's the most was the fact that they do all of their cooking on site. If Chef Jack's is in your budget, you won't be disappointed.

They are top of the line and worth the extra money you pay for. One thing that really stood out; we had appetizers beforehand, and the people passing them out made sure to stop by my wife and I first and singled us out so we would be sure to not miss out on any of them while we were busy chatting with people.
They were also very helpful in laying out the venue, and allowing the mother of the bride to assist in all the ways she wanted.

Candy, Eric, and Chef Jack are absolutely the best at what they do, and will bend over backwards to make your wedding reception perfect. The waitstaff are extremely professional and Candy will make sure everything goes exactly as you've planned. They even allowed me (the bride) to have a custom entre? and were sensitive to husband's seafood allergy. We received SO many compliments on the food for our reception it was unreal.

Our wedding has passed and I wanted to leave a couple reviews, as these were most helpful to me in planning the past 18 months. Chef Jack's was my favorite vendor during the whole planning process. The food of course was great, but the responsiveness(to use a rating category:)) was what really made them stand out from the rest. Any time I had a question about my event they were always friendly and helpful. This was very reassuring as I am the definition of a nervous bride! The night of the event could not have been more perfect. We had a great reception and Chef Jack's was a big part of it. I would most definitely recommend them.

Candy was really great to work with. She almost acted as a day-of coordinator at the wedding. The DJ was late, and she was calling around to find out where they were, and I didn't even know any of this was going on. They were all very professional. The most important part: the food was amazing. I wouldn't have changed a single thing, they did every very well. I can't say enough about Chef Jack's. They take care of so many details, it makes working with them a breeze.

On the day of, they were so helpful and responsive. They put out all of the decorations, so no one had to help set up. They were always checking up on us to make sure everything was ok, or asking if we needed anything. Guests were very impressed with the level of service.

Overall, I had a great experience with Chef Jack's. I did have an issue with payment where they charged me twice. Once they realized the mistake was on their end, they did rectify it quickly and tried to make it right. However, by then my experience was a bit tarnished (imagine having your entire bank account drained three days before your wedding!) Overall, though the service was excellent, the food was amazing (I kept hearing, "This is the best wedding food I've ever had!), and they take care of all the rentals which takes a load off you! I would recommend them!
