I just had my wedding catered by Robert J and am incredibly pleased. The wedding was at the Happy Days Lodge, which is somewhat challenging since there are no onsite facilities for food prep. Everything needs to be brought in, which could easily compromise the quality of food - not Robert J.

From the beginning, we liked Robert J because of the value and variety. We had a tasting and were very pleased. In the end we created a very customized menu, and he and his staff accommodated basically every request and met us in our price range. We paid for several up-charges willingly as well in order to get everything we wanted.

Robert responded to emails quickly and was very proactive in finalizing the guest counts, etc. The night of, his staff was very helpful in keeping the evening flowing and service was extremely prompt.

Most importantly - THE WEDDING FOOD! It was so, so good. Keep in mind it was NOT what we had at the tasting and we were surprised. The food was piping hot, super fresh and flavorful. It was also plentiful. Many of the guests told me and my husband that it was the best food they ever had at a wedding. I couldn't be happier with the results, and Robert was very easy to work with.

Robert J provided amazing catering for our wedding - everyone afterwards came up to us unprompted and told us how excellent the food was. He also made the planning process very easy and was always quick to respond to any questions we had. During the wedding reception itself, Robert J worked tirelessly in the background making sure that everything ran smoothly. We are very pleased that he catered our wedding!

Bob from Robert J Events was so professional. The food was outstanding. I have been to so many weddings were the food wasn't like the tasting was. Not with Robert J. Events. We got so many compliments. The wedding was at Brookside Farms in Louisville and Robert J. Events made it so special. Every detail was handled so professionally.

We went to a couple of different tasting and the food and service at Robert J Event were on a completely different level. Bob was very professional to work with, he puts a lot of pride into his work. He was very helpful with our food choices and gave us some excellent tips on how to make sure the night ran smoothly. This is not your typical wedding food, everything was cooked perfectly and tasted amazing. Everyone loved the food and they made sure to tell us about how they went back for seconds. The wedding packages they offer are very inclusive (china, linens, napkins, flatware, glasses, etc.), unlike other places that add on charges. We also used Robert J for bar back service and bartenders. We were allowed to supply our own alcohol and Robert J supplied all the mixers, juices and garnishes. The bartenders were extremely friendly to all of our guests. I would highly recommend Robert J Events for any catering and bartending need.

Bob and his team are unbelievable. They are able to work within your budget to create the event of your dreams! I wanted a cocktail vibe, and Bob's advice was incredibly helpful. Not to mention, the food was AMAZING! My guests were 'wowed' by his unique presentation (mashed potato martini bar!) of the items, and they couldn't stop talking about how wonderful everything tasted. Incredibly professional, and really know their stuff! I will use him for any kind of event I have in the future, as well.

Robert J went above and beyond in regards to our caterer. Excellent food and the linens and china were included in our price. Despite being 2300 miles away from Ohio, Bob was great to work with. Will definitely use him again if we have the opportunity.

As a Catering Service, I believe that, in the end, the proof is in the pudding. Robert J makes exceptional food. Delicious food, not "good food for a catered buffet good" but " I would go to that restaurant again" good.
Above and beyond the quality of the product, the entire night of my wedding went off without a hitch. Robert J's staff is attentive, extremely polite, I think everyone on staff personaly congratulated my husband and I, and very good at what they do. I cannot say enough good things about Robert J Events.

Bob was very easy to work with. At no time did we feel we were sold any extras. We appreciated his advice and would definitely work with Robert J again.

Lots of compliments on the food and professionalism of the staff. Guests also loved the children's menu.
