I don't normally take the time for this but Kristy and John Serock Catering were spectacular. The food was out of this world- we're still getting rave compliments about it - and the staff and service were unmatched.

I don't know how much they pay Kristy but I hope it's a lot. She is unbelievable at her job. From the beginning planning stages, to the taste testings and coordinating calendars, etc, to the actual event - just smooth as can be.

The night of their staff does a wonderful job of circulating the hors d'oeuvres so everyone got them, not just the people hanging by the kitchen! She was so attentive to the Bride and made sure she had no wants, she made a special plate for me (Father of the Bride), and the entire staff was so pleasant.

She went above and beyond catering. She helped unload the trolly when it had to leave so we weren't bothered, she loaded up my truck with all the alcohol, presents, etc. at the end without ever bothering me, just all around amazing job.

And the food really was the best food ever and reasonably priced relative to wedding caterers today. If I could give six stars I would!

From our first tasting through our wedding day, John Serock was attentive and perfect every step of the way. The only thing I had no concerns about for my wedding day was the catering! They customized our menu to our unique requests (Philadelphia vs. Boston food table) and made sure everything ran smoothly. Even our tough to please guests raved about the food. John worked with all of our vendors to make sure that our last minute rain plan went off without a hitch. We cannot say enough wonderful things about John Serock catering. You would be making a mistake if you do not hire them. Thank you , John and staff!

We used Serock Caering for our September wedding. Cassidy was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. She and the chef really worked with us to get the things we wanted(grilled cheese bar, awesome pies instead of cake...). Cassidy was super responsive via email to all my many, many questions and never made me feel like a bother for asking asking any of them. :) The day of the wedding things went so smoothly. The set up was done before I even knew it and was unbelievably beautiful. The reception room looked exactly as I had been imagining. I did notice the dance floor looked a little squished and without hesitation Cassidy had them move some tables to open it up. They assigned one staff member to my husband and I and they were super attentive. All my guests were just raving about the food and service. And yes, the food was to die for even when made for a large crowd! We were nervous that even though the tasting was amazing that when made for a bunch of people the food might not be quite as good but they proved us very wrong. The short rib was so, so good! I really cannot say enough great things about Serock! I fully recommend them to anyone!

I rarely take the time to write positive reviews, which is probably a mistake on my part, but I would like to take the time to express how pleased my wife and I were with Serock Catering and Kristy. As a part of my job I am lucky enough to eat at superb restaurants regularly, particularly steak houses. Make no mistake about it. John's steak is phenomenal, and can go toe-to-toe with the best of the Philly steakhouses (Mortons, Capital Grille, etc.). All of our guests commented on how wonderful the food was, from the steaks to the mac-and-cheese pops. Kristy does a phenomenal job working with you (my wife is not easy-going when it comes to planning and aesthetics). Anything we wanted, they had, and if they did not have it, they worked with you to make it happen. Again, I can count the number of positive reviews I have ever written for anything on one hand, but I have to say, I would have no problem recommending their services for any event, and I will certainly be using them again for large events in the future.

We first met ​Kristy from Serock Catering at an open house they hosted at ​Brandywine Manor Hosue in late 2014. She was the first person we met, and the first open house we attended after getting engaged​. As soon as we approached her, we had a​n immediate​ connection with ​Kristy due to her outgoing, warm, and responsive personality.

We asked her the most elementary questions and she graciously answered everything; she was informative, professional, and inviting. Who would have known we'd be laughing with her at our wedding 8 months later?

Mindy and I negotiated our contract with ​Kristy and she met our every request, all for a reasonable price.

When our families came in for our tasting, they were all blown away by the food, which I'll get to later, ​Kristy's friendliness, and John as well. He took the time to meet everyone who came, told us about himself, his family, and how he came to work in the catering business.

The food. I'm salivating just thinking of it. Our hors d'ourves included:

Korean Short Rib Taco
Sautéed Gulf Shrimp Scampi
Moroccan Lamb, Cucumber Plank, Mint Pistou
Caribbean Jerk Chicken Skewers
Scallops and Bacon
Bruschetta Bites

Our entrees were chicken princess and espresso-crusted sirloin. Every item was delicious.​ The staff was perfectly accommodating; every time we turned around a staff member had refreshed our drink, passed us our favorite appetizer, or was asking "is there anything you'd like?" ​​That's the way a bride and groom should be treated, and they exceeded our expectations!

They cleaned up the area and moved all of our items (everything from leftover booze to the table centerpieces to our decorations!) to the agreed-upon spot.

Mindy and I truly could not have asked for a better caterer. Serock Catering blew us away. Even typing this, I cannot believe how well everything went. Kudos to John Serock and Kristy Arnold.

WE recently used John Serock catering for our daughters wedding 8/9/15. We had never used an offsite caterer and were a little nervous. Also we live in NY and the wedding was in PA. John & Kristy could not have been better. They went above and beyond to make our party perfect. We went to the tasting which was unbelievable, it was hard to choose. I think we selected almost all of the items. John was unbelievable, he does not have the "chef" ego. WE asked him if he could vary a few of the items to our taste and he did without hesitation. We let John know that we wanted our party, especially our cocktail hour to have enough staff. we did NOT want a tray of food to come out in one corner of the room and by the time other guests got there it was gone. Everyone told us every time they turned around there was someone serving food and it was delicious!! The dinner was equally as amazing. Additionally Kristy helped us navigate all our concerns and was always responsive to e-mails. The day of the event Kristy had everything and everyone organized. Thank you John & Kristy for helping to make our wedding a huge success.

From the beginning of our search for a caterer John Serock was at the top of our list. The tasting was very well done and informational. We were able to sample many choices as we tried to narrow down to our final menu. Kristy communicated often with us by phone and email. They worked with us to tailor everything according to our needs. Many of our guests said it was the best meal they have had at a wedding. I would highly recommend using John Serock catering for any event.

John Serock Catering is exceptional. From the start of the process, with my first inquiry, Kristy was incredibly friendly, responsive, and helpful. They provided a very reasonable quote, at which time we scheduled a tasting. We were impressed with the quality of the food, their facilities, and meeting Kristy and John in person. We requested a custom menu of Middle Eastern specialties and they really delivered. At that point, we signed the contract. Kristy continued to be responsive over the next seven months, answering questions, making great suggestions, and talking through timelines, potential problems, and ideas. The day of the wedding brought a massive rainstorm and the entire JSC team handled it with aplomb. Kristy helped stage manage throughout the event, which took a lot off of my mind. Plus, the food was phenomenal and impressed both my caterer father and my Middle Eastern family with its quality and authenticity. (TIP: Their salmon preparation is exceptional, and was even better at the event for 100+ people than it was for the two of us at the tasting, when it was also very good.) I was especially grateful to have staff assigned to me and my husband to ensure that we were well-fed throughout the evening. Seriously, the food was fantastic. I intend to use them again, if only to try the very few dishes that I missed. :)

We could not be happier with John Serock! The food was absolutely delicious and the service was flawless. We have not stopped getting compliments from our guests about how good the food was! They helped coordinate everything from the order of events for the day to walking down the aisle. And when our DJ failed to show up, John was the first one on the phone getting someone to cover (thankfully, we were able to get someone else!). His expertise and professionalism is unmatched. Hiring John Serock Catering was the best decision we could have made. Because of John and his team, we had a completely stress-free wedding. I highly recommend them to anyone planning an event.
