We went into the wedding day with high expectations after our tasting. Unfortunately they weren't met. The bride's food was flavorless and cold. On the plus side, the staff was very professional, courteous and friendly. Other than the actual taste of the food, everything was perfect.

When my daughter selected the Science Museum of Minnesota for her wedding reception, we were required to use Lancer Catering because they contract with the museum. There were a few communication issues in the early planning stages, but Lancer took strides to make the evening wonderful. We received MANY compliments from guests on the both the food and on the efficiency of the staff. The contact person we worked with, Kaitlin, was extremely detail oriented and responsive to any and all of our questions - we appreciated working with her. Lancer also recommends Buttercream Bakery for their cakes. Once again, we heard many of the guests say how good the cake tasted. Lancer, partnered with the Science Museum, provided an absolutely beautiful, memorable event.

We have had a great experience with Lancer Catering so far! The quality and taste of their food is amazing! They are partnered with our venue, The Science Museum of Minnesota, and it has been the easiest planning process with those two working so well together. I found that the price was pretty average compared to most other caterers, however it seems a little high in price to me. The great thing about them is they have so many options to choose from, and are very flexible on the menu planning to accommodate food allergies/sensitivities, as well as overall preference. They have many plated and buffet options and allow you to mix and match very easily to what you want to serve. Some of the buffet options are even broken down to region and specific culture, like American comfort food and Italian, which can make it fun if you are going for a specific theme with your food and/or overall wedding.
Their selection of appetizers and late night snacks is pretty impressive as well!
I would highly recommend Lancer Catering to anyone!

My daughter and son-in-law celebrated there blessed wedding party at Keller Golf Course this passed Fall and it was a smashing success! The new clubhouse at Keller is truly a diamond in the Metro East Community. Our wedding party included 270 participants. And everyone had a great time. We were served steak, chicken, walleye, vegetarian dish and chicken drummies by the very capable Lancer Staff. The food was Fabulous. Later in the evening we treated are guest to pizza ( yum!). We used the patio at Keller for a cigar bar and lawn game area. The fireplace room was used for hors d'oevures and the beverage bar. The Ballroom, of course, was used for dinner and dancing. I want to give a special Thank you to Lindsey at Keller for all of her help, ideas, suggestion and enthusiasm for My daughters very, very special day. All expectations were meet and then some!!!

Lancer Catering was the vendor that our venue required. We were very happy with the quality of the food, and got many complements on the taste of appetizers and dinner as well as the service. We worked with two different people. The first was very hard to get in contact with and did not respond to emails. We actually never heard back from her after our tasting, even after sending multiple emails. A little over a month before the wedding another person from the company finally got in contact with us. The second person was great and very responsive. I wish we would have worked with her all along. Everyone from the company that worked with us the day of was very nice and helpful.

Lancer was great to work with, and provided wonderful snacks for our ceremony in the Sunken Garden. Guests had the mini burgers, couscous cups and smoked salmon - everyone seemed to enjoy them very much. I worked with Mindy to coordinate everything, and she was very helpful and organized. I would definitely recommend Lancer to anyone having their special event at the Como Conservatory!

I would 100% recommend the Como Zoo to anyone getting married! Mindy, who we worked with ahead of time was outstanding, more than flexible and helped guide us through an unknown situation. The night of the wedding, we had a FABULOUS evening! All of our guests did as well. There was compliment after compliment about the venue and how beautiful everything was; from the ceremony to the reception. Thank you so much to you and the entire Como staff for putting on such an unforgettable event! I am so glad we went with everything that we did. The food, location and staff were all amazing. We even had a penguin!!!

Lancer Catering was the only company we could use to cater our event at our chosen wedding venue, as they had a contract with our venue. Unfortunately, while the food was good. Our service from the company left little to be desired, especially at the higher rate they charge I would expect a little bit higher standard of service. About 4 weeks after our wedding, we are still waiting for the company directors to investigate all the issues we had at our wedding reception after only receiving very poor and inadequate answers from our sales banquet manager. We had 3 sales banquet managers over the course of 10 months which I found to be ridiculous because I was constantly repeating and going over everything after going through the answers with the prior managers and being given different answers on different items addressed.
