We had excellent service from everyone involved, and the food was absolutely delicious. I was more than happy with the way my son's wedding reception turned out and I would highly recommend Barrack's to anyone who is searching for a caterer for any type of event.

Our event was held at Eastport Marina. What a beautiful setting! The food was wonderful and plentiful...I received many compliments on the food from our guests. Barracks provided a wide variety of items that we used for table decorations free of charge along with our package purchase. Barracks staff was helpful and attentive and supplied what ever was needed...Thank you for making our event so memorable! The event was well worth the money spent!

This vendor was very helpful and responsive to our reception needs. They were understanding and patient with us when we encountered delays and really came alongside us when we needed them most.

The service before our event was handled very professionally. They left nothing to chance and their efforts to communicate with us were always appreciated.

At our reception, their servers were professional and genuinely interested in doing the job they'd been hired to do. They treated us very respectfully, tried to help us in ways that went beyond their specific call of duty and were accommodating when we had questions or concerns.

Overall, we enjoyed our daughter's reception without care or concern because Barrack's was part of our team! Thanks for all you do!

I could not say enough about Barracks and their staff! Donna was WONDERFUL to work with, very go with the flow and looking to please! The staff the night of the reception was attentive and polite. Our guests loved the food! They even made one special plate (vegetarian style :) for me, the bride, and followed me from the buffet to my table to ensure I had it with the rest of my meal! We are so glad that we trusted them with our special day because they helped make it perfect!!

We admittedly made the mistake of originally shopping for caterers for our wedding reception on price. What a mistake. The supplier we chose had decent service the first couple months and things completely fell apart just a few months before our event.

We parted ways with that supplier and contacted Barrack’s. We didn’t know what we were missing until we did. From the very first frantic phone call to Barrack’s, they were outstanding to work with. Their service was far beyond what we ever could have expected –incredibly friendly and helpful, timely, great ideas and suggestions, very flexible to work with and absolutely on top of the details right down to the special request PB&J we asked them deliver to the head table as a joke for one of our groomsmen during dinner. Their staff working our event that night nailed every single detail.

And that’s not to mention the quality of their food. A month later, we still have people commenting on how good the food was, especially the fillets. A quote from one of our guests “Not only was your venue absolutely upscale, the food was too!”

Barrack’s wasn’t just a wedding caterer. They weren’t even just a valued partner. They literally became part of our day and made it so incredibly special for us and our guests.
