Words can not describe how amazing MBP catering is. Practically every guest we spoke to, meat eaters and vegetarians alike, raved about the food to us on their own volition - no exaggeration. We even received an inadvertent drunk voicemail from the groomsmen that night where we could overhear them talking about how good our food was. People were so happy to eat great tasting wedding food - which is strangely such a rarity!

Even the next morning, at our brunch [also catered by MBP] I kept hearing about how good the food was. Our menu: fried chicken, short ribs with peach bourbon sauce, mac and cheese lorraine, mashed potatoes, green beans, salad, and fried biscuits with apple butter. They even made the apple butter from scratch! People were obsessed with the fried biscuits.

MBP was able to make exactly what I wanted for our wedding and were very reasonably priced. They were also able to provide china and flatware for a price that wasn't insane like some vendors.

We worked with Christina Tooke and she was awesome - everything went so smoothly. Christina kind of stepped into the shoes of event coordinator and helped with the pacing of the evening. MBP's staff was very professional, and it all went swimmingly. I've already recommended MBP to several girlfriends getting married and one is planning on using them at her wedding next summer.

If you want a reliable, professional caterer that won't cost you an arm and a leg and that makes delicious food - MBP is the obvious choice.

ONE WORD OF ADVICE TO COUPLES: ask your caterer to prepare you to-go meals. We didn't spend a lot of time eating because we were so busy with wedding activities and on our way to our hotel we were starving. So we ended up eating mushy sandwiches from Steak n' Shake and were so sad thinking about our amazing food that we only got a couple of bites of. I think caterers ought to ask couples if this is something they're interested in.

MBP was one of the preferred vendors for our venue. We initially did a trial with them because their pricing was less expensive than the other preferred vendors. We were more than pleasantly surprised. Their food was absolutely delicious! We worked with Adam Luellen as our coordinator. He was wonderful. For the tasting, he basically said to send him a list of anything we wanted to taste from their menus. Everything we tasted was really, really good. We opted for a chicken entree with a couple of sides plus a salad and roll. For the cocktail hour, we picked three different appetizers. We had numerous guests comment that the hummus appetizer was the best hummus they had ever had. Additionally, multiple other guests, including our parents, also said the food was the best they had ever had at any wedding and/or catered event. Not only was the food wonderful, Adam and his staff were a pleasure to work with. Adam was always responsive to any question (no matter how trivial it seemed to us) we had. He added a different table cloth at the last minute due to a photo I saw online for the cake table. He let us know that he was going to be out of town on vacation for the week or so immediately prior to our date, but he left us in good hands with the rest of the staff. Every person was fantastic. During the reception, MBP staff checked on us to make sure everything was to our liking. Adam returned in the middle of the reception (due to another event) and made sure everything was going well. Overall, it was a wonderful menu and great experience interacting with everyone at MBP!

This food is incredible!! We had a buffet at our wedding, with salads plated beforehand, and passed hors d'oeuvres during our cocktail hour. Our guests LOVED the food, the staff was incredibly prompt, polite, put together, and professional,and the catering supervisor had everything running so smoothly! I never even noticed when they took the buffet down, which was set up in our dance floor area. Adam, our coordinator, was fantastic! He was also quick about answering emails, even when they were just short questions. This is a great business - these guys really know what they're doing!

We loved MBP so much. Adam treated us so well and helped us plan from long distance. Day of - I could not have been happier! I hugged Adam at the end of the wedding, because I was so taken back by his team and their professionalism throughout the wedding. The set-up was phenomenally done and our guests LOVED the food.

The food was delicious! Our wedding was later in the evening, and we wanted to do small plates. They were so flexible with our tastes and mixing up items from pre-selected menus to fit what we wanted. Other vendors had discouraged us from having this type of dining at our wedding, but MBP made a great first impression by working with us from the beginning. They also had a menu for the children who were served their meals instead of doing the buffet line, which helped the parents a lot. The food the night of the wedding was just as hot, fresh, and scrumptious as it was at the tasting! People loved the mash-tini bar and the cheesecake bar! The staff was very professional. I would recommend MBP to anyone with catering, not just for weddings- but especially if you plan to hors d'oeuvres!

MBP was great to work with and the food did not disappoint! Our guests' favorite was the mashed potato bar. HUGE HIT! All the food tasted very fresh and we loved the tenderloin carving station. We decided to go with heavy appetizers and it was just perfect. They also did a great job bussing the tables so that they stayed clean the entire night. Great service and great food!

MBP was our first choice from the list of caterers our venue gave us, and they happened to be the most reasonably priced. The food tasted amazing, looked elegant, and was exactly what we wanted. They have a wide selection of packages, with several different food items. Christina is one of the main reasons we had such a successful wedding. She is organized, detail-oriented, incredibly responsive, and after listening to exactly what we wanted, executed every single detail perfectly. She was flexible in several ways, including allowing us an additional person at the tasting, and making some tables larger than others to accommodate our requests. Once we told her our preferences, she made other decisions we didn’t want to, and was a behind-the-scenes all-star. A lot of detail went into planning the centerpieces, seating chart, name cards, other décor, etc. and she and her team did an outstanding job making sure those details were exactly how we wanted it. She communicated with the florist, cake baker, wedding coordinator at the venue, and others to ensure each component of the wedding was cohesive. It was very nice to turn over all of our thoughts and ideas, trusting she would just take care of everything we wanted without us having to do a thing.
