I came into Premier with high expectations. I was satisfied with the end product, but not without some headaches through the planning process and wishing it could have had a better value product for the money we paid.
I basically had no choice in catering because they came with The Lincoln Station - our first choice in reception venue. The Station is beautiful and a wonderful venue for a wedding reception. In order to save money, we wanted to play music through our iPod and have a friend be the Emcee. Many people are doing this these days. Sheila at Premier assured us this would be possible. A couple months before the wedding when I called with more detailed questions about logistics of sound equipment, Sheila sounded clueless and told us there was no sound system equipment avaiable in the Lincoln Station and we'd have to rent our own in order to pipe music from our iPod. We were not prepared for the cost of renting a sound system or capable of running it ourselves so we had no other choice then to hire a DJ last minute. This was several hundred dollars we were not planning on.
Also, the food in general was really salty and over processed. Luckily Premier has menu tastings so you know what you're getting. I chose the pork and fish because it was the most fresh and tasty...but being in Nebraska, I expected an excellent beef selection and it was just plain salty. That was a little disappointing. However, the pork and fish were great on the night of and the salad selections were yummy.
It also stinks that you have to pay EXTRA for real dishes. I mean, come on. It's a wedding, not a picnic - everyone in my family thought it was kind of crazy that you had to pay extra to eat on real plates with real silverware.
Overall, the catering turned out fine and the venue was awesome. Their catering staff for the wedding was also wonderful.

Very costly but good food! We spent 12,000 on 400 people. This didn't include alcohol, we did a cash bar.
