What is Gilmore Catering?

Gilmore Catering--the award-winning catering division of The Gilmore Collection--serves West Michigan from the lakeshore to downtown Grand Rapids and beyond.

We specialize in chef-driven, restaurant-quality cuisine using only the best in fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Our event managers, service staff, and culinary teams are creative, knowledgeable, and courteous, and there is no event too large, too intimate or too specialized for us to execute flawlessly from beginning to end. Make sure your special day is perfect. We certainly will.

In addition to relationships with the best photographers, DJs, and design experts, we also manage a variety of unique venues, including:

The B.O.B.

The B.O.B. (an acronym for Big Old Building) is located in downtown Grand Rapids. The 70,000-square-foot, four- story, red brick building was constructed in 1903 as Judson's grocery warehouse. It stood vacant for decades before The Gilmore Collection began its transformation, ultimately saving it from demolition.

The building has several different spaces:
L3VEL - This spacious, warehouse-style room encompasses a majority of the third floor and features exposed brick and beams, large windows over-looking downtown Grand Rapids, private and semi-private spaces, and more. Seats up to 350 guests. Eve - Four floors above the busy city streets sits this thoroughly modern lounge with a circular center bar, DJ booth, dance floor, nightclub lighting, and bottle service. Seats up to 180 guests. H.O.M.E. - The House of Music & Entertainment has the high-energy of a live music venue because that's exactly what it is. A fully equipped stage, dance floor, spacious bar, and rustic lounge make it the perfect space for the perfect cocktail party. Holds up to 200 guests. B.O.B.'s Brewery - An honest-to-goodness Michigan brewery awaits in the bottom level of The B.O.B. The perfect spot for a bachelor or bachelorette party. Holds up to 80 guests. Bottle Lodge - This private room is comforting, inviting, and perfect for a rehearsal dinner with its rich, dark wood, exposed brick, and bottles and bottles of wine on display. Seats up to 40 guests.


Baker Lofts

This reclaimed loft space in downtown Holland, Michigan, is full of charm and urban elegance. Exposed brick, soaring ceilings with festival lighting, an airy patio, large bar, ample parking, flexibility seating options, and a full-service on-site kitchen are all good reason why it was voted one of the top venues on the lakeshore. Seats up to 300 guests. Read less

We're hosting our reception at The Top of the BOB, catered by the Gilmore Collection. The space is great for that downtown feel with plenty of room to not be cramped (approx. 200 guests) We were pleasantly surprised at the ample food and beverage service selections and how reasonable the pricing is. Everyone we've worked with so far has been very helpful and really quick to respond to questions. We're going for our private food tasting next month and we couldn't be more excited!

We had our wedding reception at The EVE at the BOB with Gilmore Collection Catering. From the very first tour of the place the staff was friendly, helpful and welcoming. I am so happy we went with them. Our reception turned out beautiful. Kari was our coordinator and Kauai was our manager the night of the reception. I really cannot say enough nice things about working with both of them. The food (appetizers and main course) were fantastic, the event ran very smoothly, and my mom really appreciated the staff's help with getting everything boxed up at the end of the night. Very professional group of people to work with and I would recommend having an event at the EVE to anyone!

I used Gilmore Catering for my wedding in Saugatuck, MI. I was planning from Indiana and Gilmore made the planning process a breeze. Kim and Angela at the Gilmore were fantastic to work with and responded quickly to any questions I had. We had some odd requests and it did not throw them off one bit. As for the day of the wedding Charlie was on our onsite contact. He was the best thing ever! He was so professional and was prompt with how the evening went. All of my guests were raving about Charlie and the staff!

We had the added fun of planning our wedding from out of town and Alicia and Kerry were a huge help in planning our reception at the Top of the B.O.B. The venue is beautiful, amazing food (we had many, many guests tell us it was the best wedding food they had ever had!), staff that goes above and beyond (even making my plate and carrying it to my seat for me), and a great location. Alicia was our manager for the night and she was wonderful in planning and helping the night flow flawlessly. Many guests commented on how amazing the venue itself is and then the service on top of that. Our only wish is that we could have taken the left over food home since it was so good! We couldn't be happier with our decision to have the B.O.B and Gilmore Catering for our reception.

Gilmore Collection catered my daughters outdoor wedding in Holland in August 2013. From the moment we contacted Gilmore (Kim), we were guided through the process with exceptional service. Since our daughter was living in San Fran, we needed to do a lot over the phone, but were able to meet Angela at the BOB for two taste testings.

Angela did a great job making suggestions for the cocktail and dinner. Gilmore is very flexible with making changes to their menu so that you get exactly what you want.

The day of event was unbelievable, Guests were greeted with passed appetizers and wine. The appetizers were great. The dinner prep and presentation was over the top. Guests were very pleased with menu selections and that entrees were grilled on site. As great as the food was, the service was even better. I have never seen the attention to detail shown by all of the servers.

Never a moment of worry if you go with Gilmore. They are the best in the area.

Shout out to Angela for a job well done!!!!
