Michelle, Jennifer, and Rettew's Catering Staff,

You all went above and beyond for Colby and I! 110% JOB ACROSS THE BOARD!

People raved about the food and cake!! And the linens were beautiful with our decor!

I heard a lot of good comments on the main chicken entree! I had it, and it was cooked perfectly!
The cake was also super delicious!! :)
Michelle and April (day of wedding) were tremendous! Michelle was the biggest help through the planning process and April was a total dear during the wedding! She would run out with beer and water for us during our photos outside during cocktail hour, and even saved some snacks from the cocktail for us to eat as well :)
Rettew's was always our number 1 since our first tasting at the Booking House 2 Marchs ago now I believe, the food has always been amazing, and the presentation of everything was stellar!

We can't thank everyone at Rettew's enough, you all were our #1 vendor that day!!!

Thank you so much again,

We very much enjoyed Rettew's coordination and handling of the catering for our recent wedding at the Londonderry Inn. The service was personal, comprehensive, thoughtful, and able to professionally handle both our "big picture" plans, as well as last minute changes. We were very impressed, as were the numerous family and friends in attendance.

It's hard to say which menu item shone above the rest. We really enjoyed the Seafood Newburgh crepes, but we also very much enjoyed the omelet station. Our guests seemed to enjoy everything about the menu, with some telling us about how great the oatmeal was. Right down to the sausage and potatoes, the menu was very well received.

And Michelle from Rettew was there early for set-up and all the way through for us, even so far as to making sure the bride and groom were actually able to enjoy the great food by personally securing omelets and other items for us to eat as we were caught up in the hubbub of the festivities among our guests.

What solidified our choice of Rettew's was the ability and willingness to take on other parts of our event as part of Rettew's total package other than "just the great food", such as coordinating the tent and chairs procurement and arrivals, working with the innkeepers on proper tent size and logistics, and being there during the function making sure thing went
well.

We highly recommend Rettew!

If you want mouth watering food for your wedding, or any event, then you must choose Rettew's! We met with Jennifer and the moment we got into the car we both looked at each other and said that we should just book her, with out meeting any other caterers. And it was a decision we never regretted! Jennifer is so much fun to work with. she is so easy going, helpful, patient, funny and knowledgeable. Jennifer worked with us throughout the entire process and was so flexible. She worked with out budget and with our head count. Rettew's has such a variety of food options that we wanted to choose everything. We got so many compliments about our cocktail hour and the food at the reception. We used Rettew's for our wedding cakes as well, yes cakes. I didnt want a traditional wedding cake so i went with three 8 inch cakes (all different flavors and different icing styles) as well as mini whoopie pies. The cakes were sooooo good and the whoopie pies were amazing. I would absolutely recommend Rettew's if you want stellar food and a great company to work with.

The entire team of Rettew's Catering, Michelle, Jennifer, Cathy, and all of the staff, was more incredible than words can begin to describe throughout the entire wedding planning process. From square one the team was open and communicative about anything I could have ever imagined. Michelle was a excellent resource in talking about all the different options that Rettew's offers and helping us to find the one that was right for us. The time and patience demonstrated by the team was second to none-- they were consistently quick to respond, detail oriented, and kept me involved as much as was needed. Down to the day of the wedding Michelle and Cathy communicated with each other and the serving staff to make sure nothing was missed. The food was exceptional and the service was even better. Guests consistently commented on the professionalism and kindness of the staff and repeatedly remarked on the quality of the food and service. Working with this team allowed me to feel supported every step of the way and trust that everything was taken care of with great care and attention. I couldn't recommend this team more highly!

It was so wonderful to have Rettew’s cater our wedding reception! Everyone at Rettew’s Catering is lovely to work with. We originally met with Jennifer to start the planning process, and she also made sure to check in with us on our special day, which meant so much to us. Kristen is absolutely delightful- she was genuinely excited to be a part of our day and made sure all of our catering requests were tended to. She was so helpful throughout the entire menu planning process and our food was DELICIOUS! She was there throughout our entire reception, and we knew that we didn’t have to worry about a thing! We received many compliments on our appetizers and dinner selection. Our dinner was plated and served, and Kristen was especially careful to make sure that our guests with allergies received the correct meal as well, which meant so much to us. I also have to take a second to talk about my favorite part- the DESSERTS! Our cake was absolutely GORGEOUS and exactly what we had pictured. The mini desserts were to die for and they even put together an amazing hot chocolate bar to top off our perfect winter wedding! The waiters were amazingly attentive and the bartenders did such a great job! We truly couldn’t have asked for anything more and we would recommend Rettew’s to anyone looking for a top-notch caterer! Incredible to work with!

We worked with Rettew's for our wedding on 10/17/15 at Harvest View Barns. Everyone was ranting and raving about our food and how great it all turned out, as were we! We decided to go with a small cake topper just for cutting, but did miniature individual pies for our dessert, which were awesome (I unfortunately tried to pack the one flavor I wanted but it somehow didn't make it back with me so I was unable to try the pie I requested :( ). We also ended up going with a s'more bar and mini ice cream cones as a "late night" treat - which everyone loved! Everyone was ranting and raving about our food and how great it all turned out, as were we! For our dinner we went with a sit down and it ran so smoothly and tasted wonderful! Jennifer was great to work with and made all of our big day dreams (as far as food goes anyway!) come true, she was even there for our big day to make sure all ran smoothly. For our cocktail hour we even had a smoker brought in for pulled pork, chicken and brisket sliders. It really added to our whole theme! They also did our linens, which turned out great and I absolutely loved how it all came together! We would recommend Rettew's to anyone who wants to WOW their guests with amazing food!

Jennifer & her team at Rettew's Catering were simply amazing for our Oct 3, 2015 wedding! We had last minute changes due to the forecasted hurricane, unseasonably cold weather, and rain and they accommodated everything graciously. I cannot imagine all of the hard work that happened behind the scenes with turning over the room between the ceremony and reception - but the end result was wonderful!

Jennifer was wonderful and responsive throughout the full planning process and checked in with us throughout the night. She even bustled my dress - that was very unexpected and appreciated!!! Her staff and servers worked so hard and even gave us some words of encouragement throughout the night.

Everything appeared seamless on our side, which enabled us to enjoy the day and our friends and family. We are getting tons of compliments from the guests on the food and desserts!

Rettew's Catering, truly lives up to the excellent reputation they have established. We had the pleasure of working with Michelle, and were so pleased by her professionalism and kindness throughout the entire planning process. Everything they served was amazing and our guests made sure to tell us too. We went with a petite desert table and are so glad that we did, because the various options were so delicious and the table looked great! We also loved the linens they provided as part of their services, everything looked beautiful! We could not have been happier using Rettew's for our catering service and thank you to Michelle for organizing the day so well!!!

We used Rettew's Catering for our 9/5/15 wedding at Pheasant Run Farm BB in Lancaster PA, and they were wonderful for our served meal event. I was absolutely terrified of booking a caterer because of how pricey it can get - and many, many places require a high guest count minimum before they even consider your event. My smallish 65 guest count wedding fit in perfectly with Rettew's and they were very accommodating. And did I mention we needed Rettew's for everything from plates, glasses, silverware, linens, and more. They were extremely responsive to emails (many, many emails) and answered questions from how high champagne flutes are filled, changing linen choices several times, and also finding out important information from the bride & groom. They also have AMAZING tasting events with tons of food, desserts, and everything in between for you to choose from for your own wedding. AND IT IS FREE. Michelle Gruber was amazing and patient throughout our seemingly endless email chain, and her husband Michael Gruber made sure to introduce himself at the wedding & asked us if we needed anything specific throughout the evening. They were very much so on top of timelines, cleaning at the end of the night, and bartending. If you're on a budget, but don't want to sacrifice quality - linens - a gorgeous cake - service, Rettew's is for you!
