THIS COMPANY IS OUT OF BUSINESS!! My husband and I had originally contracted with Mt. Vernon a year before our event date. They started out very friendly and quick to return calls. Once they had $4000 of our money (about 1/2 our total bill) they became hard to track down and did not return phone calls/emails. Their food was good and reasonably priced. We met with them in July '09 and they said if we could give them more money (not required by the contract) that would be great....luckily we didn't! At the end of August we got a letter in the mail (sent to my parents, not the address we gave them) stating they went out of business, are not filing for bankruptcy and basically said not to expect any of our money back. This was 3 Months before our wedding! We had to borrow money to pay our new caterer even though we had saved up to pay for the wedding.... I'm sure we are not the only people who got an impersonal letter in the mail, no courtesy to call or e-mail.

Mt. Vernon Caterers took care of every detail of our wedding day. Their flexiblility to make our day unique was appreciated not only on the day of the wedding, but from the first day we met with Kim, the owner. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for personalized service and someone to take care of the smallest details!

Kim at Mt. Vernon is a pleasure to work with, and the food was excellent. She also did all of our linens, and the tables and the displays looked marvelous. She was also very flexible in working within our budget, and was incredibly helpful at helping us work out a schedule for the day of the wedding.

Where to start... We would definitely not recommend this company. Here is a list of reasons why...
(1) We had provided them with electronic & hard copies of the seating chart which detailed that the table directly in front of our sweetheart table should be a table of 6 (4 parents & 2 grandparents) but they had set the table for 10, so we had to look at a half empty table throughout dinner
(2) They were supposed to ensure that the main entrance gate was opened because we had printed our ceremony programs with the appropriate directions, they failed to & our guests (a lot of out-of towners & people unfamiliar with the area) had to find their own way to the other entrance
(3) We had provided them with three baskets of flip-flops for our guests. We only ever saw two baskets displayed & we did not receive the other basket or flip-flops back
(4) We had bought some of our own liquor for the reception, which we know for sure was not all used, but we did not receive the leftover back
(5) They served underage guests alcohol during the reception
(6) The coordinator for the company got into an argument with our photographer right in front of us while we were trying to take our wedding pictures
The only positives... nice waiters & good hors' devours!

the owner was very rude that day to several people, they did not provide what they were suspose to do and the food took a long time to be served, they didn't have the correct supplies we had paid for, and the people that worked for them didn' know what they were doing. they ruined my daughter's wedding and it cost me a small fortune!

This caterer provided excellent food not just for the cost - but because it was delicious!! They want very much to please their clients. They were flexible from the start regrading budget and food choices and were very willing to work with us on our event design ideas as well. There was some confusing at set-up -and if I had someone on-site to help - it would have been better.... But in the end it all came together and our guests raved about the food. Kim, the owner, is passionate about her business and aims to please!!! I would use them again.

We absolutely loved Kim and Mt. Vernon. They were very flexible with our ideas and vision for the day. Great food and reasonable prices. We were able to get everything we wanted and they made sure all of our belongings were set away until the next day for pick up.

We had the choice of this caterer or one other at our venue. We tried the other first and didn't like them, so came to Mt. Vernon. She was very personable and made us feel comfortable, however we weren't so thrilled with the food. We made a few changes from the tasting, paid extra for a specific wine my mom wanted, agreed that we would provide a special liquor my husband wanted and felt good when we left.
Day of the event: bride and grooms food was WAY over peppered... I'm talking the meat, the green beans EVERYTHING. So bad neither of us could eat it (and my husband really likes pepper. I on the other hand specifically requested NO PEPPER).
Our bread basket contained 1 roll and 3 HAMBURGER ROLLS! no joke.
Our requested wine (That we paid extra for) was not provided
They didn't put out the liquor we brought only after my husband noted it wasn't on the bar. We then had left overs and never got it back
The Bar closed an hr early. Luckily the staff was nice about it and when the groomsmen went to go get myself and my groom a drink were they were packing up the truck, they made it for us.
Luckily none of my guests had a problem with the food. I would NOT recommend this caterer if you can help it.

I really liked working with Mt. Vernon Caterers. They had a lot of appetizer and menu options in my price range. Not only that, but they were really flexible with how I wanted to serve the food and schedule the evening. They were also quite responsive to my calls/questions -- I never had to worry about the details with them. Not only that, but they helped me find my reception site! All in all, they were a pleasure to work with!
