I would strongly recommend using Brann's Distinctive Catering. I had my wedding reception at their Waddell Center in downtown Grand Rapids. During my 11 month engagement I called and visited the reception hall many times, and each time the staff was very friendly and helpful. Every detail for my wedding was taken care of, and they even changed the menu to cater to my food allergies. Pricing is really great. For the buffet you get a lot of food for a really great price. The servers were very polite and the food was delicious. All of my guests (175) got through the buffet in 15-20 minutes. The bar tenders were also fabulous and went out of their way to check on guests at their tables to see if they needed more to drink. Absolutely wonderful. Could not be more happy with the service I received from Brann's Distinctive Catering.

Having dealt with Branns for years I expected top notch everything. This event fell flat. They served the Bridal Party on their chargers (no plates), many tables received none (visitors from New Zealand moved to another table not knowing American customs did not ask for food) or not enough food (family style) most folks had to ask for more. The mashed potatoes were served to several tables on plates not in bowls. In fairness the event coordinator worked very well (Branns style) before the event. The gal in charge at the event and post event customer service were totally unresponsive. Embarrassing, tacky mess! Use at your own risk.

Distinctive Catering did an amazing job for our reception. The food tasted amazing and it was served at the perfect temp. The servers that worked our reception did a fantastic job and were very friendly :) Whenever I talked to any of them they would tell me congratulations and the staff leader even kept the garage where they plated the food swept up and neat! I would recommend Distinctive Catering to anyone looking for a catering company that is efficient and professional, yet flexible with your budget.

Distinctive Catering did a fantastic job on our wedding in July. It was a small event of 43 people and they gave great service and in a timely manner. Our steaks were great and the chicken was moist. Great attention to detail and keeping our beverages filled. I have been in the service industry for 30 years and was hoping I would not be critical or disappointed. They were great! Thank you for making our event so enjoyable, from the quality of food to the service.

Everything was good at the actual event. Great food, great bar tenders, etc. However, we did have some communication issues with our event planner. We asked for the doors to be open at 9 a.m. on the day of our wedding and had to make many phone calls to try to get someone to come unlock everything. By the time we got someone it was past 1. Luckily I had paid extra to come in the night before to decorate. If I had not done this, I would have been in trouble!

I used Branns for my wedding catering and they did a great job. The food was very good, and reasonably priced. We opted for Family Style, and my only wish is that they provided a steak option to include in their family style plates. We chose the Pot Roast, which was delicious, but I think having more of an actual steak option would have made our food that much better!

Kim in the sales office was great to work with. Very responsive and answered all my crazy questions. The servers who worked our event were very kind, professional and courteous. I was very impressed with them.
We chose the buffet with the full service upgrade for our reception. It was totally worth it to not have to worry about additional vendors for linens, tableware, plates & glassware. Not to mention how nice it was to have the catering staff dismiss tables for the buffet, clear, and take care of getting all of those pieces of dinnerware clean. I can't imagine trying to have a wedding any other way.
I was slightly disappointed in the appearance of the food. Our veggies looked a little sad, how they do when they've been overcooked. My husband and I had originally tried the roast turkey entree at a tasting, and didn't think it looked at all the same when they served it at our event. Thankfully, it was delicious just the same. Unfortunately, the dish I was most looking forward to, the ham entree, I didn't even eat. One expects ham to be a shade of pink, this was brown, in a questionable looking red sauce, covered in capers. My guests said it tasted great, but I didn't risk it. The salads were all awesome, and my husband could have eaten a whole tray of their meatballs by himself.
Overall, I'm really happy with their food and service and would recommend them to a friend. I'd probably suggest not ordering anything you don't get to see or try at the tasting though.

Both the food and staff with Brann's Catering were great! Everyone was very nice and responsive to answering our questions. They also packed up the extra food at the end of the night for us to keep! The food was awesome and there was so much included for a great price. I never doubted that their food and service would be anything but great! I would highly recommend them to anyone and everyone!
