Dad's was extremely professional, they catered as well as bartended our event. Everything from my wedding night is a complete blur as far as drinks and food are concerned, but many people complemented us on the food (their vegetarian lasagna was the bomb, and I am not a vegetarian). My husband was a bit disappointed the vegetables in the vegetable medley were cooked differently than we had previously had, but my Mom loved the change.

All in all I like them very much, the food was good, the bartender knew when to cut people off but didn't make anyone feel bad about being cut off. Clean up went smoothly. We had a great time. Thank you for everything Dad's.

I used this company when I got married back in 2006. I was not able to write a review until now. Im getting married again and I was telling my experience to my florist and she suggested to me to write about my experience so that others will know. I came to them for catering for my wedding. I met w an employee there who we went over all different foods and cakes and was able to taste food and different flavors in cakes. She wrote down everything or at least I thought she did. Even asked us for the colors we were using so they coukd provide table linens for the tables during the ceremony. So we picked out 2 different flavors for cake our frosting of butter cream and our color for the table cloths of apple red also our food. Well come the big day we were waiting for the caterers to arrive and they were late. So we waited to set up the centerpieces on all the tables cause we needed to put table clothes on. Once they arrived I was already getting into my dress so n I couldnt go out and help w the tables. My family asked if I ordered table clothes and they said they didnt have any. I asked why and they said I never ordered them. Well I did cause I was specifically asked by an employee what our color was so we could get table cloths. So then they set up the food and cake. Food looked good and cake did as well. Well when it came time to cut the cake we tasted it and it was the wrong filling and flavor and the frosting was whipped cream and not butter cream. At that point I was beyond furious. I finished my wedding next day went on our honeymoon. We got back a week later and I sent an email complaining about everything and was told they would do nothing for me. And that I never asked for linens and they couldnt fix the cake cause it was after the fact. I will never use this company and I advise to others that if u decide to go w a company choose someone else or make sure the day before or everyday for a week before that u will get what u asked for.

We used Dad's catering for our wedding and would recommend them to anyone! We got the BBQ buffet package, it included everything, dinnerware, glassware, drinks, appetizers, and dessert, for such a reasonable price! The food was outstanding, we had the brauts, pulled pork sandwiches, ranch beans, pasta salad, potato salad and green salad. We also ordered our cake through them, the cake was to die for!! Still eating leftovers!

Only advice, if you have questions or need stuff changed your best bet is to call rather than email. Otherwise, outstanding!

Dad's Catering was great to work with for our wedding. We were starving when we met with them for a tasting, and we could not even finish the sample plates they brought us.

All the food we tried was super fresh and really tasty. We got a great deal too - two free appetizer trays (we chose chips, veggies and dip) and a free 1 year anniversary cake!

They went out of their way to help us keep our budget down, never pressured us or tried to upsell us. They were just great people all around.

The only reason they don't get the full five stars from me is that they are not that tech-savvy and that's important these days. Email communication was not their strong suit, so I felt I had to call anytime I had a simple question.

Other than that, I loved their food, and next time we need catering they will be at the top of our list.

Dad's catering was very helpful in the beginning of our planning process and we were really happy to be able to place our rental and catering orders all in one place. They reassured us that they would take care of some specific concerns we had do to our venue being at a family friends house (clean up, trash disposal, moving of some rental item, etc.). When our wedding day finally came, not only were these agreed upon tasks not met, we also received complaints from our guests that the wait staff was rude, they made an "executive decision" not bring water (which was part of the food package we paid for), and changed the family style service we had agreed upon because they did not bring enough trays. Our day of coordinator was left to do above and beyond what we hired her for and left feeling taken advantage of by the catering staff. Along with the home owner, we were left to finish cleaning and to dispose of the food trash that was left in the homes garage in a broken cardboard box and untied off garbage bag.

The food was delicious, not one complaint. One of their servers even held the train of my wedding dress while I got my food at our buffet. Such a great staff! The food was great, even as leftover's! They even made a special gluten free plate for my friend. My cake was breath taking. I sent them a picture of a cake I had seen on Pinterest, they made it even better than what I had hoped for. It was the best, moist, cake I had ever ate. Can't thank them enough. They had also done my father's wedding catering, about 10 years ago. I hadn't forgot how delicious their food was. It only got better than what I had remembered.

THIS WAS THE BEST MONEY I SPENT ON MY WEDDING!!!! We had 130 guests and Dad's sent enough servers that there was not one piece of trash left on a table longer than 5 min. no joke. Not only was the service great but the food was AMAZING!!!! They do taste testings and make sure that everything is still the same before the wedding and if needed come in again to make sure the food is what you want because you can change anything up until the week of the wedding!! They are amazing! It seemed everytime I turned around at my wedding one lady was there to make sure I didnt need any more food or anything to drink and if I did she swiftly went and got it(I wasnt expecting that kind of service at all!!) They were just amazing and the food was sooo delicious everyone enjoyed it! I would HIGHLY recommend to use them!!
