We absolutely loved everything about Main Event Caterers. Our wedding was at Woodend Sanctuary in Chevy Chase, MD which provided us with a limited list of approved caterers to choose from. Main Event Caterers was a great value for the incredible food provided. All of our wedding guests raved about how delicious the food was, many even mentioned it was the best wedding food they had ever eaten. We ended up ordering our wedding cake through them as well and it turned out beautiful. They coordinated all rentals (tables, chairs, linens, etc.) which made planning very easy. Adeline and Spencer were extremely responsive and helpful throughout all of the planning. All of our emails were returned within hours or even minutes. They were helpful in guiding us through all selections from food to chairs and linens. The tasting was wonderful and we felt like valued customers throughout the process. The staff went above and beyond to make sure all guests were happy during the event. Special attention was paid to make sure the groom and myself had plenty of food and wine throughout the night as well. We highly recommend using Main Event for your wedding!!

Jackie and Spencer, and the rest of the Main Event catering team, were an absolute joy to work with; they were incredibly attentive and proactive in their roles in my wedding planning and execution, as well as accommodating. I couldn't have had the perfect wedding I did without their help and services.

We hired Main Events for our Wedding and they were fabulous to work with. They exceeded our expectations. They will work with your budget and make it fit your event style. Their food was delicious on the day of the event and was beautifully presented. Their staff was exceptional to work with as well. They were so professional, friendly, and coordinated our day perfectly.

Unsurprisingly, Main Event was at the top of the search for the best caterers in the DC area, so we immediately scheduled an appointment. Our meeting with Michelle went great, and solidified our choice, however we decided to look into other options as well. We eventually We knew we were in the best hands after our meeting with Michelle and decided on Main Event although their estimate was higher than our 2nd choice caterer. Our menu was carefully crafted for our needs. As a multicultural couple, we needed a caterer who could deliver on various options, and they sure did!
They also worked seamlessly with our planner and another caterer who provided the Ghanaian option.

Liz managed the entire process after we decided to sign a contract with the team. She was absolutely flawless! Left no stone unturned and made sure we had the best day of our lives. I have nothing buy great things to say about the company, as well as their day of staff (Liz and Michelle included- of course!).

If you are considering between Main Event and another option, please go ahead and select Main Event even if more costly. You will have peace of mind, and know that you are in great hands!!!

People are still talking about the food from my wedding. Sure, it tasted amazing at the initial tasting. The delicious food and Spencer's professionalism and fun personality sold us on this vendor. But I definitely expected the food at the wedding to taste less fresh - pre cooked, you know, weddingy. Not the case. It looked beautiful, and was fancy restaurant quality fresh - and my venue didn't have anything that resembled a kitchen. I dont know how they did it. Some of my fondest memories from my wedding day are chomping down on a lamb lolli and potato croquettes. The mac and cheese - to die for. The staff was amazing and friendly and super efficient. They set everything up and broke it down before I knew it. I'm telling you - Main Event has magic catering powers. Admittedly, I was one of those high maintenance, million email brides. The team was super responsive and patient with me. They left no concern unaddressed and no question unanswered. And all at a price that's just about the same as other local (and less highly rated) caterers. Looking back now, knowing what kind of food and service I was going to get from Main Event, I would have been happy paying twice as much as I did. Totally totally worth it. Love you guys!! Thank you Spencer and Jackie!!

If you want the most delicious food, amazing service, attention to detail, and extreme professionalism choose Main Event Caterers! My wife and I received compliments from every single guest from the lemonade stand prior to the ceremony, the cocktail hour, and servers, and the delicious food! We had a Vintage theme and half of our guests flew in. So we selected the menu based on local or Southern cuisine. The Mac and Cheese is to die for!! Courtney our event manager was he best and accommodated all of our requests and needs. She made sure everything was fabulous and seemless. Not only did the servers caterer to us, they catered to all of the guests and made sure everyone had what they needed at all times. I highly recommend Main Event Caterers! Thank you for making our wedding so delicious!

We would wholeheartedly recommend working with Main Event Caterers. Spencer and his colleagues were amazingly professional, and so easy to get along with. My husband and I are vegetarian and wanted a meat-free menu that would please everyone. Main Event delivered! The tasting was fabulous, and the day-of meal even more so. In spite of the rain and having to set up the ceremony and reception in the same area, Main Event took care of everything flawlessly. They also were extremely responsive to any changes we wanted to make to the menu, and to last minute requests. Thank you again!

Wonderful Experience!!!!

Spencer, Adeline and Chip were awesome at our tasting. They did a great job coming up with the perfect menu for us.

The guests RAVED about the food and service. They even managed to keep the bride and groom fed throughout the day (and made sure we always had a drink in hand :D).

Service was also out of this world wonderful. Food came out quickly, the butlers were responsive and polite. Chip - you are the best!

Look forward to going to an upcoming wedding with them as the caterer in a few months! :)

Many thanks to the entire staff of Main Event Caterers! The service and food was outstanding! From the initial phone inquiry to the end of our wedding reception Main Event Caterers provided impeccable service. Our guests continue to rave about the passed hors d'oeuvres and entrees served. The crispy mac & cheese croquettes were a big hit! The wait staff was friendly and very attentive. Elyse McFadden, Liz Arline, and Corey are fabulous to work with. Every detail was attended to. I didn't have to think about a thing on our wedding day. To all looking for a caterer no matter the size of the event I highly recommend Main Event Caters and look forward to using them again.
