We cannot express how happy we are with John Michael's service. They went the extra mile to make sure our wedding was perfect! The food, the team, the decorations... Top of the line! Everyone in our party had a wonderful time. I recommend him and the team! :)))

John Michael provided such good food and the staff was so polite and attentive. The pricing is very reasonable and they offer many different options for lower and higher budget weddings. They also provide bar services which include a great company policy. No shots allowed. This is great if you are trying to keep your wedding from getting sloppy. Everyone was still partying but no one embarrassed themselves or has any regrets. Great food. Great services. Great staff.

We were very impressed with John Michael Catering. Prior to the event Charlene was great to work with and quick to respond to every question. The staff at the wedding was great too - they brought over hors d'oeuvres to the bridal party during cocktail hour as we were taking pictures, and packaged everything left over for us to take home at the end of the night. Our wedding was at Paradise Cove and we had a buffet with Salmon, Carved Tenderloin/Filet and sides were orzo, corn casserole, and veggies. Everything was really good - I would highly recommend the carved Tenderloin even though it was an upcharge - it was my favorite thing, followed by the orzo.

Not what I was expecting.

NO! No! No! you will regret it at the end, even though they seem so nice, it's a different story when you actually face the facts. I don't know, maybe they had lots of other events and didn't have time to prepare for mine, but Gosh, it was a mess.

I have heard nothing but rave reviews from our guests about how good the food was. Almost everyone was blown away with the service as well. Zach, the bar tender, was everyone's best friend. I am not sure about the set up/display, since we didn't get to see much! My only negative thing I have to say about them isn't even related to food. We were supposed to have a 100% flower free wedding, and it was even written on the contract to remove the flowers from the buffet stations. During pictures though, a waiter brought us a platter from the cocktail hour with an orchid on it. I am guessing that each one had one as well. I was very upset about this. It was (and still is!) and huge deal to me.

Incredible vendor. My favorite things: friendly staff, unbelievably quick response time to emails, food is delicious (you will receive tons of compliments from your guests), reasonably priced, on the day of the wedding you/family don't really have to do anything, etc.

They truly want to make this the best day. If you don't go with them, I can't tell you how much you are missing out.

The food was great. But the negotiations (for instance, our guest count went down from 75 to 35, so we asked for something additional to make up for the difference) didn't go as well as we hoped. They weren't very accommodating. But it seemed they are locally based and had a lot of experience in catering. So I don't have problem recommending them to anyone.

Everyone at the wedding enjoyed the food - which is a huge plus! But, the process of getting the food organized and picked was the best part for us. Michael, the owner, was so honest and sincere the whole way! We enjoyed our time with him and we felt that his work helped our wedding be exactly the way we wanted it! His staff was absolutely amazing at the wedding and we couldn't have asked for more!

We recommend John Michael Catering to everyone! They are priced reasonably and do a fantastic job!

The John Michael Team went above and beyond to make our day special! We couldn't believe how fantastic the room looked when we walked into the reception. The tables and linens looked gorgeous! The JM team was always making sure that we had what we needed and our dinner was perfect! Our guests couldn't stop raving about how great the food was too!

Leading up to the wedding Michael was always great about answering my emails and phone calls.

We will always recommend them to everyone!

They were amazing from start to finish. There menu has everything to please any taste. They have taste testings every other month, and you are invited to them to try the different items from the day you talk to them, until the day of you wedding. Kelly made it truly stress free for us. The staff was very professional. Even though we did not have a huge wedding, they treated us like we were spending millions.

One review for Catering, a separate for Cake...

Catering:
We have been told over and over since our wedding by our guests how much they "loved" the food at our wedding. Karma at John Michael worked with us gleefully through our whole process, tweaking and adjusting the menu at our will, until we had a spectacular custom-designed menu that still stayed well under our tight budget. The menu even held a specially made and titled dish just for our wedding, one created after we had it in a restaurant in Savannah and brought the recipe back to John Michael for tweaking into our menu. Best of all, they never forget the bride and groom after the event, packing a picnic dinner for us for our wedding night. All the special touches along with the outstanding catering staff made for a beautiful evening.

Cake:
John Michael contracts a private cake-maker for their cakes, and although I was extremely pleased with our catering, our cake left much to be desired. It was embarrassingly small; do this day, we still laugh about how our very modest cake topper was about as tall as the cake itself. We had a small wedding, and were told that at $1 per slice, they would make our cake to scale based on the number of guests. We had no idea that meant that our cake would be less than 10" tall (2 tiers) and maybe 6 to 8 inches in diameter. It simply wasn't explained. We were told there would be an extra charge for a third tier, and not knowing how small it would be in the end, we declined. Looking back, we should have accepted the additional cost. We did mention it after the wedding; we did not receive a response. That said, we did love the flavor of the cake, it was delicious. And they did design it to my exact specifications, which was beautiful.
