Dana was amazing. She worked with us to create a dessert platter that was more "us" than a traditional wedding cake. All of the food was delicious, and our guests were happy!

Dana and her team were incredibly flexible with our ever changing guest count. Her banquet captain Jake saved my makeup when my husband shoved blue cake all over my face and he ran over with a damp warm cloth. Moreover, the food was incredible and exactly the relaxed BBQ food that we were looking to have for our guests. I'm only sad I didn't have more time to eat more!

Riverhouse catered our wedding in September at Priam Vineyards and they did an amazing job! The service was phenomenal and our guests are still talking about how delicious the food was. Debbie Grazier was so easy and wonderful to work with!

Riverhouse was amazing to work with. From start to finish, they were so flexible with what we wanted out of the wedding, and helped to coordinate everything. Dana helped plan leading up to the day, which was great. Jake was with me for rehearsal and the day-of, and he was an absolute pleasure to work with, and we had fun with him.

UPDATE: Riverhouse Catering by far surpassed all of our expectations! Not only was the food amazing, but the attention and detail that they put in before the wedding, is simply amazing! Dana worked with me right up until a couple of hours before the wedding to decide on an outside location (the weather was a little questionable) but in the end she pulled off my dream wedding! The servers and bartenders are all extremely professional too. I would recommend using them for ANY kind of event. Simply amazing! I truly believe that it was the crew at Riverhouse that gave me my perfect wedding day!

The food at Riverhouse Catering is amazing! My fiance and I are working with Dana and she has been extremely helpful! We are both avid foodies and have come up with a few different ideas that are not on the menu. Riverhouse Catering is adaptive and flexible and truly want to help make your wedding what you've always wanted! The pricing is fair and very flexible (ie, can have open bar, can provide just hard liquor or wine/beer, etc). They will even serve alcohol that you purchase separately and discount the package price!! Cannot wait to taste the fabulous dishes at our wedding!

Riverhouse Catering was great to work with. We wanted a customized menu and they were more than willing to work with us to ensure it was exactly what we wanted. We got many compliments on the food, would definitely recommend to others.

I can not say enough about Debbie, Keith (my Captain) and the rest of the staff at Riverhouse catering. They provide top notch service 100%. The food is amazing. I had event planners as guests at my wedding and they all commented how they have never tasted such delicious food. They couldn't believe it was catered.

The staff is attentive and professional. In addition, the table setting was gorgeous, the extras such as the harvest table and stations were stunning and delicious as well. Debbie also asisted by arranging for chivari chairs, flatware, etc. rentals. The cake was a different vendor (also delicious!) but packaged into the price.

The next day, the venue contacted us and commented how immaculate the place was left. The Riverhouse staff cleaned and tidied up as if nearly 200 people had never been there the night before.

In summary, your guests will get high class service and dining at a very reasonable price if you chose Riverhouse. The value is incredible.

We used Riverhouse Catering for our wedding as they have a partnership with our venue and are the only allowed catering company. My bridesmaid and I first met with Dana (as she's the liaison for the museum and the catering company both) and she was very friendly and flexible. She just got married at the museum herself!

The one thing I didn't love was the group tasting. Dana was very encouraging about us attending the large group tasting (about 200 people) where we got to try all the appetizers on their fall/winter menu and then all the dinner items. One issue was this event was held at the Society Room where most attendees were having their wedding...but not us or one or two other couples. Second, we were really underwhelmed with a lot of foods and options and got very worried that we wouldn't be happy on our wedding day. At our one-on-one meeting a month or so later, we found out we could literally pick out our own menu from scratch. Cool. So why did we have the group tasting...? We were happy we could pick out our own menu...but we never got to taste it after the fact so it was all up to chance on our wedding day.

That being said, our food did turn out pretty good. We did a buffet (same price as plated) and opted for a steak+shrimp, mushroom stuffed chicken, and paneer tikka masala. Most foods tasted good and people generally liked the food - we liked it better than the group tasting.

We had a nice attendant throughout the wedding who brought us food/drinks. Our bartenders were on point and seemed to be dancing a bit during the dance hour. Serving went smoothly and dinner only took an hour! (Buffet worked in our favor).

Riverhouse Catering put out an amazing spread for our wedding both in terms of quality and presentation. The staff, especially Dana, worked with us to design a very personalized menu. They listened to our concerns and desires and we were thrilled with the outcome. Working with Dana throughout the process was terrific! She worked very well with our venue and took over many of the day-of responsibilities along with our venue coordinator - things like setting up name cards, favors, signage and additional decor. We were originally working with someone else at Riverhouse when we started planning and had some issues having our questions answered, but once we started working with Dana the process was far more organized and we were extremely satisfied with our interactions with Dana. Overall the cost for catering is on the higher end, but the service and quality are great. I would definitely recommend Riverhouse in the future.
