Rettew's was a wonderful part of our wedding day. Jennifer and the staff were very helpful in organizing the details so we didn't have to think about them on our wedding day. Jen also made sure I was calm and taken care of while waiting for the ceremony to start. The staff did an excellent job cleaning up and making sure our guests were happy and everyone is still raving about how great the food was!

We had such an amazing time at our wedding and in huge part to the service and food from Rettew's!

Yummm.....so many good things. The braised short ribs and mashed potatoes were our favorites. We loved the spicy cornbread cups with pork as well! All of it was so good and the cake was just beautiful!! The fact that we had 180 people for a seated dinner could have been intimidating, but Rettew's handled it perfectly and the food was fantastic all around!

Michelle served as our initial contact and was a complete joy to work with! Michelle always got back to me so quickly and was very willing to work with our budget and changing menu plans. Kristen was our day-of contact and was also just wonderful. Our personal butler/server was Tracey and she always made sure we had what we needed and brought us wine and food during our photos which made that much more bearable!

We decided to go with Rettew's after almost going with another local caterer. Rettew's offered more for our money and honestly, a more interesting menu. Their open house was spectacular and really sold us. We are so thankful for Rettew's doing such a great job on making our day so special!

Rettew's service and food went above and beyond our expectations. Michelle has been helping us for the past 10 months to determine what kind of food we could have, giving suggestions on popular dishes and staying within our budget. The team that ran our wedding were unbelievably nice and calm despite having to serve 120 guests! The head caterer that day was amazing - she brought us appetizers as soon as our ceremony had ended (while we were getting our family photos!) and made sure to make us THREE wonderful and heaping plates of food which she brought to our head table. Our guests have been raving about the food at our wedding and it was even better than what we'd remembered at our tasting. Our cake and desserts were delicious as well and we luckily brought home our topper to enjoy now, as Rettew's will make us a new one for our one year anniversary! Everything was perfect and I hope we get to use Rettew's for a future event.

Rettew's Catering is the best! Michelle was extremely helpful. Not only did she help plan the menu for the day, but she took care of all of our rentals as well (tent, chairs, linens). I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of a wedding caterer! The food is delicious, the presentation is beautiful, and the staff is very friendly.

Rettew's Catering did a fantastic job for my wedding reception, and I cannot say enough good things about my experience with them. I was married May, 2014 and had to plan my Lancaster, PA wedding from Ohio. Jennifer worked diligently to ensure the distance would not be a problem for planning. We exchanged emails and phone calls to keep our catering plans updated, and any change I threw her way was handled with professionalism. My wedding day was perfect, and I contribute that largely to the staff at Rettew's; my food was delicious, I was served appetizers during my wedding photo hour (between ceremony and reception), and I felt pampered and carefree the day of my wedding. The members of the staff went out of their way to make sure my guests and I had a truly lovely evening.

I cannot say enough about Rettew's. I probably emailed Michelle, from Rettew's 50 times throughout the year before my wedding. She answered ALL of my questions, promptly and patiently. Rettew's took care of so many details for the wedding. We had a special pretzel delivery late into the reception- she met the delivery person, got the pretzels and had them placed on the dessert table for us. They provided a beverage urn at the last minute. They offered to mix our signature drinks, refill the pies that we provided, and cut the cake that we made ourselves free of charge!!! They were INCREDIBLY helpful the day of the wedding. Servers continuously came to our sweetheart table to ask us if we needed anything. They brought us food even though there was a buffet! They reserved a table of appetizers for us when we were off taking pictures!! WE WERE SO HAPPY. Michelle also sent us layout suggestions for the tables at our reception. Anyway they could help- they did. They are incredible. You cannot go wrong with Rettews!!

Rettew Catering Services were phenomenal for our wedding! My husband and I met Jennifer approximately one year prior to our wedding. She was professional, super helpful, down to earth and very personal. Not only did she take the time to get to know us, she took a strong interest in helping us attain our dream wedding. Our selling point for choosing their services: they were one of the only caterers who would accommodate our wish to have a pig roast but to have the pig on the spit, at the venue and carve it there. We had so many compliments from our guests on how delicious the food tasted. The wait staff were exceptionally accommodating and very friendly. It was also awesome that we were to be able to have Rettew's assist with all of our rental needs as well. I have nothing bad to say about their services!!! Exceptional!! Delicious!!! Friendly!!!

Hello Jennifer,

I just wanted to thank you for everything your company did for us on our
wedding day. Everyone loved the food and your servers were great. It's sad
that all of this is over but we will have great memories for a lifetime and
you and your company will be a part of those memories. If you need and
reviews from us or want to use us as a reference we will be more than happy
to do that. Also when our photographer send us our pictures I will send you
any that I think you can use for your Facebook page. Thanks again for
everything. We couldn't be happier.
