We had a fair experience with Classic Catering overall. The tasting went well, our questions were answered within a week (which was okay for me because all of my questions were months before the actual wedding, however; that might be troublesome for the more last minute brides out there), and the food was delicious!

The only thing that didn't sit with me was their level of professionalism. I asked the point of contact for Classic Catering long ahead of time when the the table cloths would be set up by. She responded by saying the set up would be done by 1pm, which was perfect because that was when we could start setting up at our venue. However, they didn't put the table cloths on the tables until I asked them to and that didn't happen until 2 (why didn't I ask until 2? As the bride and as my own wedding planner; please understand my head was in a thousand different places going at 1000 mph)! My ceremony began at 3 and my family was helping me do all the set ups. The worse part is; almost all of my decorations were on the tables! So in order to set up my decorations, we needed the table cloths first! It's frustrating enough and stressful enough planning your own wedding, but it gets even worse when people who should be professionals aren't pulling in their end of the deal. Secondly, during my reception, Classic Catering had one of their employees come up to me 3 TIMES to ask if I was going to pay the bill (when I already had paid in full!). It was beyond me why they would come up to me during my WEDDING and not prior to the wedding day or after the wedding day to ask me about the balance. In fact, they shouldn't even have to ask me about the balance as they should be organized enough to know whether its been taken care of or not yet. Would I go with them again? No, because the lack of professionalism definitely was a biggie for me.

Excellent food (we had the pork and stuffing, chicken buffet)! Staff was very accommodating to our questions and allergy-related food needs. Guests particularly appreciated attention to allergy free foods.

We booked Classic Catering for our second reception at Hughes Pavilion in Centennial Lakes Park, Edina. They were one of the preferred vendors, and I'm SO glad they were. Everyone we met with at CC was professional and kind, responded quickly and informatively to emails. We went in for a tasting, which they were very flexible about booking us in for seeing as we don't live in the area and had a small window of time over Christmas when we were in town.

The food was DELICIOUS. Especially the mashed potatoes. And the cookies. Ooh and the chicken. OK all the food was delicious. The presentation was gorgeous, they even bring linens for your non-catering tables like the gift tables, cake table, sign in table etc, which really helped us. You can pick the table cloths up the day before (which I HIGHLY recommend doing) and drop them off the next day, you just give them a deposit check which they rip up once you've returned them. There was plenty of food, and they let you take home the leftovers if you bring your own containers. I'm so glad we did, because they were delicious left overs and we ate them for days. Seriously, the mashed potatoes..

The value is SUPERB. Compared to other companies in the area (and I did a LOT of comparisons), they beat out everyone. They don't stick on extras "fees" for every little thing, either. Table cloths are included, centerpieces are even included if you want them (mirror, vase and candles, you have to provide the actual flowers yourself - go to Costco). There are lots of options if you want to upgrade, but you really can pick your price point and have a great experience with them no matter what. They cut your cake for you, even if they didn't provide the cake. They just do it to be nice.

We were really happy with our choice, and already have friends in the area who have booked them for their reception! Highly recommended.

Classic Catering catered for my wedding at the Eagan Community Center and the food was amazing! Throughout the night we had several guest tell us about how delicious the food was, and how it was "the best food they have ever had at a wedding!" Classic catering also allows you to take food home after the wedding, so do not forget Tupperware (giant party sized) ... like we did lol. Luckily we had a family member run and go get us some Tupperware. And after seeing how much food was left, thank goodness classic catering does not throw it away! The food was so good we had family members fighting over who got to take home what! After being married for 8 months now, I still have wedding guest reminiscing about how good our food was. The best mashed potatoes I have ever had in my entire life!!

I will start with the pros. GREAT value for great food. Our guests were very impressed with the quality of the food. You can also bring home leftovers, which is hard to find with caterers but is a huge selling point-I mean you paid for it, right? They also offer bar service so they are a one stop shop for food and drink. Dana was great to work with and very quick in getting back to me whenever I had a question.

They were, however, late to my wedding. In their defense, there was alot of road construction that day. However, since they had the linens and the globes for our centerpieces, we were more or less at a standstill until they got there-which no one wants or can really afford time wise on their wedding day. I myself did not receive an apology, though they explained to my (husband why they were late (but he does not recall an actual apology either). My main tiff is that they ran out of almost every kind of booze! They were out of Captain Morgan within the first hour after serving! Throughout the night they continued to run out of different booze, which became increasingly frustrating to myself and my guest. I would recommend them for food but def not bar service.

Absolutely pleased with the service, food, and price. They set up, they cleaned up, and let us take home leftover food. Guests loved the food and there was plenty of it. Staff was very pleasant and responsive. Dana was great to work with - even accommodated for last minute add-ons to the guest #. Pricing was simple and clear. Could not be happier and would definitely recommend Classic Catering.

Overall they were a great vendor to work with, however the food was not nearly as good as it was at the tasting although wedding food never is. They were very easy to work with and even helped with the set up and take down of tables and decorations at the reception. They planned the tasting around our schedule and they were the best of the 3 tastings we went to. They were within our price range and didnt have very many crazy add ons like the other ones did. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a reasonablely priced caterer with decent food and a wonderful staff.
