We were so lucky to work with Bob Ryan and his team at Robert Ryan Catering. Everyone we worked with was professional, timely, and detail oriented! we had a few different point people over the year we were planning our wedding, but no detail was dropped or missed and I always felt like mine was their only wedding. Our day of coordinator, Michelle, was amazing. There is no need for a wedding coordinator in addition to your day of person. Everyone raved about the food at our wedding and when I went to visit tables, all I saw were empty plates!

Robert Ryan Catering exceeded our expectations from day one. Matt G was supportive, friendly, patient and communicated throughout the entire process. When he was not available (which was rare) Courtney, always kept touch. She was very friendly and efficient, informative and reassuring. Although our ongoing communications with Matt G. made us nervous to transition to our Event Coordinator a few weeks prior to our event, our meeting with Madison was smooth and reminded us as always we were in good hands with Robert Ryan Catering. She took copious notes and never missed one detail. Madison checked in with us prior to the event, upon arrival the day of and throughout the evening. She was a true leader and an managed a team of friendly and efficient staff members who stayed focused on the same goal of keeping us and our guests happy, impressed and full of delicious food. Finally, we cannot forget to thank, Luke. He was the server assigned to us for the day. He was friendly and attentive. He made sure we did not miss our cocktail hour food, drinks and was frequently checking in throughout the night to be sure we had drinks, food and dessert. The entire staff was impressive throughout the night. Our guests were impressed and we were not surprised. We knew from the beginning Robert Ryan would be the best match and they truly were amazing. We will recommend them for years to come! Thank you so very much to the Robert Ryan Team. Thank you for helping to make June 27 the best day of our lives!

From listening to Robert Ryan's vision of this venue, to seeing our event come to life, we were so happy to see it play out perfectly. We booked this venue in 2012, while planning a wedding for 2014, and everything that was promised to us was answered. My husband and I just got married at The Barn on Bridge, and we couldn't have been happier with the process, or more importantly the end result. We worked with Tracy Jaworski as we were planning and making decisions, and she responded promptly to any concerns or questions we had. When things weren't working out exactly how we wanted Tracy worked with us to ensure we came to a decision that worked, and made everyone happy! On the day of the wedding, we worked with Carrie, and she was amazing. She made sure everything ran so, so smoothly, and seemed to be everywhere all at once to answer questions. We can not say enough about how happy we were with everything having to do with our wedding at the Barn. The meals, as well as the food served during cocktail hour, all received rave reviews from all of our wedding guests! We would recommend this venue and these people to anyone who asked!

My husband and I were married at the Barn on Bridge, a Robert Ryan Catering Venue. The Barn itself is unique and has character beyond words. If you haven't seen it in person-- go check it out. Trust me!
We loved how Robert Ryan/the Barn had so many elements bundled together for ease of planning (ie. food, alcohol, linens, ceremony fees, add-ons, etc.) It was so easy to make choices and adjust our contract easily to fit out budget. The preferred vendor list is also high quality and saved us a lot of time searching ourselves!
We were so thrilled with the team we worked with-- from start to finish. Our event manager Amanda was with us for the 6 or so months of planning leading up to our wedding-- and we were so lucky to have her! She responded to emails promptly (even during off hours!), worked tirelessly to answer all of our questions, was flexible when setting up meetings with us and was reassuring through the final weeks when the planning felt overwhelming! We found that whenever we suggested something or wanted to try something different, the answer was always "let's make it happen".
Lisa was our day of event manager and she couldn't have been more perfect for the job. After meeting Lisa at our final meeting, I was completely confident the night would run smoothly. She coordinated with everyone throughout the night to stick to the schedule we planned and checked in with us to make sure we were happy every step of the way. Connor was assigned to the two of us for the night and he was also fantastic! He kept us and our wedding parties happy with drinks and also took care of anything our parents needed. He really made us all feel right at home and special.
AND THE FOOD... where do I begin? We have heard over and over from our guests how delicious both cocktail hour and dinner were. From the butlered beer/wine after the ceremony, to the presentation of all the food, RR Catering's attention to detail really made a lasting impression on our guests.

Robert Ryan was the glue that held our wedding together! We had a short engagement (planned the wedding in less than six months) and also did all of our wedding work from several states away. We chose the Welkinweir estate (which Robert Ryan exclusively works with) for our venue and were excited to sign on with this company as part of the deal. Robert Ryan and his assistant Matt met with us the evening before Thanksgiving at Welkinweir to show us the place since that was the only time we were in town. Already impressive. They then were willing to negotiate a little with us on our price point so we were both happy with our contract - super appreciated. Matt was then our major touch point over the next few months and was very responsive to every question we had about the process. They made everything SO easy. It was great to know that all of the little stuff - lighting, a parking shuttle, linens, china, tables and chairs - were all taken care of through the company. Carrie then served as our day-of coordinator so we didn't have to worry about a single aspect of the wedding as it was unfolding but could instead just enjoy ourselves.

Oh, and of course the food. Though I barely managed to eat anything that day, everyone else had clean plates and said they loved every bit of it. The company does a great job with creating some really delicious wedding food (which, let's face it, isn't that common) and will work with you to make sure every guest is happy. Any special requests from an exotic meat to a food allergy? They will take care of you!

Overall, highly, highly, highly recommend signing on with Robert Ryan, doubly so if you can use one of their beautiful venues to boot. There's very little left to do with the wedding planning after that and the whole process becomes so much simpler. If you're in the Philly area, please use them!

My husband and I knew that we wanted to get married in a Barn, and from the moment I saw the Barn On Bridge on line, I knew I wanted us to be married there. When I first sent my online inquiry, I received a response within a half hour, and then Matt spent more than 45 mins on the phone with me answering my numerous questions. This alone convinced me that this business had customer service at the forefront. When we came out for our visit, Matt spent so much time with us, answering our questions, showing us around and making sure he answered every question, he was friendly and polite and of course, we fell in love at first site, and booked it right then and then, we had not even looked at another place. A little mid way into planning, Matt was promoted and Amanda stepped in - needless to say I was a little nervous but the transition was seamless and she did a fabulous job as did Michele who was always available to answer any questions I had when Amanda was away. Any time we came up for meetings, everyone was always pleasant, excited for us, and very helpful with suggestions and planning of any sort and quick to ease any worries we had about wedding stress.
On the day of our Wedding, Carrie and Courtney and the staff of Robert Ryan Catering were phenomenal. I had a large wedding party and my parents were not in the best of health. They made sure everyone was taken care of without a blink of an eye. They made sure there were accommodations for our motorcycle and 69 Nova so we could have them in our wedding photos, and it didn't seem like I ever needed to ask for anything because they were always there asking me if i wanted or needed anything. At the end of the wedding, the entire place and all of our wedding items were packed up and ready for us to take back with us and everything with a smile on their face !! Robert Ryan's staff truly makes you feel like YOUR wedding is the most important day of THEIR lives too which makes all the difference on Your Wedding Day.

Robert Ryan was the exclusive caterer (and owner) of our venue - and I wouldn't have changed this even if I could. The food and service provided during our wedding were excellent. Several different guests sought me out during and after the reception to compliment the food; some even said it was the best wedding meal they had ever had. The menu choices were great, and different from your typical wedding food. They were also extremely flexible and willing to accommodate our guests with dietary restrictions. My only wish is that we had had left overs to take home - thank you!

We recently had a wedding and Robert Ryan was our caterer. Robert Ryan was phenominal! They exceeded my expectations. The staff was incredibly responsive and helpful during the wedding, and throughout the process they were wonderful to work with. They did a wonderful job setting up the table decorations so that the room looked outstanding. The food was exquisite. I received so many compliments on the food, venue, and service. I have absolutely NO complaints.

Absolutely, positively THE BEST!! Professional, Creative, Delicious, Delicious, Delicious! There is no other consideration when looking for a caterer! AND - extremely reasonable in cost. I will NEVER use anyone other than this caterer when planning an event! I am craving their appetizers now that I am thinking of them! They will look after EVERY last detail for you. If you want someone to take care of catering from A to Z for you – and then some – call them! They had me so excited for the big day to come because THEY are excited to work with you. Remarkable sums it up!

I can't thank these guys enough for making our wedding at Barn On Bridge so perfect. From the pre-wedding preparations through the wedding day, every piece was executed perfectly by Bob Ryan and his staff. Thanks especially to Matt, our pre-wedding coordinator, who is excellent at what he does. I haven't even mentioned the food yet, which was phenomenal. Our guests couldn't stop raving about the Asian station and the gorgonzola-covered filet mignon. Excellent!

I cannot speak highly enough of the professionalism, value and down right delicious food brought forth by Robert Ryan Catering. We had our wedding at The Barn on Bridge and my husband and I signed the contract when Robert Ryan had just bought the property.

They have and continue to make improvements to the venue which is a beautiful restored barn featuring open loft seating. The staff is wonderful and provides you with check lists to make sure you are organized. They really think of everything!! The staff takes the stress out of wedding planning by helping you through the process. Our wedding came together without a hitch!

And then there is the food. Our friends and family raved about the amazing food during cocktail hour. The soup was poured table side which had a fresh and dramatic element to it. Everything was delicious.

I would recommend booking at The Barn on Bridge if you are bride looking for a rustic setting and are looking to be in good hands. You are in good hands with Robert Ryan :)

We hired Robert Ryan Catering and Design to do off-site catering for our September wedding. We had met with several other caterers and Robert Ryan was by far the most impressive with their food and service. Our venue was a somewhat unique location and Robert Ryan took the time to do several site visits and make sure we would have the most ideal layout. Everyone we worked with from Robert Ryan was friendly, responsive and made me feel like everything would be taken care of. Everything they promised me was delivered and our wedding day couldn't have gone more smoothly. The service and food on our wedding day was excellent and I am still getting compliments about it. I could not be happier with the service from Robert Ryan and I would recommend them to any bride or anyone looking to have a great party.

If you have the chance to have Robert Ryan Catering for your event, DO IT, you will not be sorry. They made our wedding day perfect! They provided everything that we asked for and more. The food was exquisite and the presentation was so creative. They came up with so many great and unique ideas after just talking to us once. We received a lot of compliments on the food throughout the night. We had a unique and delicious stationary display and amazing passed hors d'oeuvres. The food was to die for, you could cut the filet with a butter knife, just perfect! I can’t say enough about the staff and how fluidly the Ryan team worked together. The staff was amazing. They were so nice and really wanted to make sure that not only the bride and groom, but every wedding guest was having a great time. Robert Ryan catering made my wedding a HIT. I wish we could do it all over again! Best day of my life- Thank you guys so much!!!!-- Tom and Kim married 8/4/2013

We had our wedding reception at Columbia Station and we couldn't have asked for anything better from Robert Ryan Catering! Everyone that we worked with leading up to our special day was so helpful and professional and truly made our day perfect. The food was absolutely delicious, our event supervisor and all of the staff made sure the service was incredible, and the venue looked beautiful. Robert Ryan Catering generously provided us with everything we asked for and was very helpful along our planning journey and even gave us extra perks in order to make the room look perfect. Our whole wedding reception went so smoothly and just the way we wanted! We have heard nothing but compliments for all of our guests. We appreciate everyone's hard work in making our day so great! We will definitely be recommending Robert Ryan Catering to our friends and would love to work with them again for any future events we may have.

From day one Robert Ryan catering was the best thing that happened to my wedding. In fact, they are the only caterer we met with for our reception at the Phoenixville Foundry. We were just so impressed with Bob Ryan and his ability to listen to what we had in mind and literally lay out our vision (with improvements!!) right from the start.

We reserved Robert Ryan Catering in December of 2011 for a June 2013 wedding. They stayed in communication with us throughout the months, reminding us when decisions were due or meetings with them needed to be scheduled. We had our tasting in September 2012 at Columbia Station and brought both our parents who were equally impressed with the food and the service they provided. Then we met with Bob at the Foundry again in April, where he walked us back through the space and talked about some of the "upgrades" RR catering had made since we booked our package. Let's be honest, when it comes to weddings EVERYTHING is an upsell. But not with Robert Ryan. Bob told us about the amazing bar with customizable LED lights and a dark wood bookcase accent, dessert table that spelled out LOVE and the full living room set complete with couches and end tables. And then he told us it was all going to be added to our existing package at no charge because it was now standard for weddings at the Foundry. We were blown away at the value and that is just one of the many examples of the amazing customer service experience we had with Bob and team.

Robert Ryan Catering and Design are extremely skilled professionals that will not only make the experience of planning a wedding very personal, but also very easy. I cannot imagine our wedding day without them!

Robert Ryan Catering was so wonderful to work with. From the moment we met them at an event, until the very last minutes of our reception, we were interacting with truly kind and caring professionals. We did not have a single worry thanks to such a wonderful, hard-working catering company! The food was delicious, visually appealing, and plentiful! They were so accommodating - we met many times to go over menu choices, details, final questions, etc... and at every meeting I left feeling more confident and excited for the big day. On our actual wedding day, my six-year-old vegetarian flower girl got a special meal made just for her, and when my great aunt and uncle needed to leave the reception before dark, their dinners were brought out early so they could enjoy before they left. Robert Ryan Catering also did a beautiful job setting up for the reception; they put out our family photos, set up our seating chart display, and they even let us use their outdoor ceremony space for some lawn games. The server dedicated to my husband and I even chased us down outside while taking photos in the 90 degree weather to bring us ice water - so sweet!
We had an amazing experience with Robert Ryan Catering, and if we had the pleasure of doing everything over again, we would definitely still go with this great caterer! I definitely would recommend them to any couple looking for great quality, communication, and also pricing.

The staff at Robert Ryan Catering/ Columbia Station were TOP NOTCH! From our first meeting to our last they were nothing but humble, knowledgeable, courteous, honest, and professional. They were always available to answer my questions which were all the time (shout out to Stephanie and Courtney!) They kept great records of our numerous payments and always kept us updated. They made our day perfect especially Nina our coordinator of the event. The pricing was very reasonable especially since my husband :) and I were footing the bill. They worked with us to put together the perfect package and really worked with our budget.

The food was AMAZING, our guests are still talking about it.

We dropped all of our supplies off the night before and they made the venue appear as if it was made for our wedding.

I really can't say enough great things about my experience with Robert Ryan and the gang. Check them out for yourself and you will know instantly they are the perfect fit!

I spent about 15 months planning my wedding, I wanted it to be perfect! When we first went to look at the Columbia Station we loved it! And no, we are not "train people" but you don't have to be to see the beauty in the Columbia Station! We first met with Bob, who is SO passionate about his company, employees and what they have to offer, it was truly inspiring! Once we booked our date I was in contact with Courtney; she is simply amazing. I would call and email her with any question, concern, or issue that needed to be tackled; she has the most positive and helpful attitude of anyone I have ever met! We also met with Kristin, while Bob was out because of an injury, and the transition was flawless. She was able to provide us with ideas and inspiration to create a beautiful wedding day not only for us but our guests as well. Stephanie was there for us when Courtney took on a different role in the company, I was nervous because Courtney was my rock with wedding planning! Again, it was such a smooth transition, Stephanie was quick to reply to phone calls and emails; she was open to what my vision was and worked with me to see it through... We had close to 200 guests; cocktail hour we had 4 bartenders; no guest waited in line for a drink. Butlered appetizers were delicious and in constant flow around the room. The bridal party was in the caboose and we received the same service; constant flow of drinks and apps! They saw my vision through and the inside of the bar room and ballroom looked beautiful! The food was hot and delicious! The servers were great and our day of coordinator, Kristen, did an excellent job! It was truly a pleasure to work with the staff of Robert Ryan Catering and to have our reception at the Columbia Station! I can't thank them enough for helping to create such a memorable day for us!

We had the most wonderful wedding at Columbia Station by Robert Ryan Catering. Everyone was so helpful and quick to respond when we had questions. The room was gorgeous, the food was beyond amazing and the service was top notch.

We had several vegans in attendance and they Robert Ryan Catering was able to adapt some of their regular hors d'oeuvres to a vegan version and they were just as fantastic.

OH MY GOODNESS I cannot say enough wonderful things about Robert Ryan Catering. If there were more stars to choose from, I would give them 10 out of 5. They are just so spectacular. The customer service is unparalleled. Every single person with whom I dealt was kind, with a great sense of humor, and wonderful organization. All aspects of our wedding were handled flawlessly, the food was DELICIOUS, any tweaks we wanted were honored immediately. I dealt with Courtney Hoff, Stephanie Ryan, and Bob Ryan on a regular basis. The owner came to almost every single meeting, handling our wedding first hand, and he was SO charming and sweet. His daughter, Stephanie, dealt with me for the last few months before the wedding, and regardless of how many emails I sent as we got closer, constantly thinking of more and more questions, she answered every one in a timely manner (sometimes even before 10am on a Sunday morning!). Courtney was my initial handler, setting up all of our preliminaries, and she was incredibly sweet, kind, and organized. Nina handled our day of coordination, and she was perfect, personable, and so on the ball. Every single aspect of our day was handled beautifully, and I could not have been happier. They were all amazing. BOOK THEM IMMEDIATELY!!! If you're a foodie, go for these guys! Their food is amazing, the set-up was beautiful, and the selection of chairs/linens/dishware was GREAT. Every single aspect they handled was just perfect.

We had narrowed it down to two caterers & ultimately picked Rob Ryan after I had received an email back from Stephanie Ryan while she was on vacation saying that she wasn't in the office to help, but that she would forward my details to her father and he would get back to me... and within a day he did. The personal service that we recieved from Bob Ryan was beyond supreme.
Then, the food. Our tasting solidified our goal to actually EAT our dinner at our reception. The quality, and selection on our stations have our guests still commenting 3 weeks after the event.
Lastly, I have to rave about two critical members of our experience - Courtney, Bobs assistant, who always was quick to respond - find an answer - and brighten up my day with every email, and Nina - our day of coordinator who made sure the entire event went without a hitch (even when we ran out of Rum Nina quickly had someone run to get us more!)
Thank you Thank you! 5 Stars most definately!

Kristen Gowen-MacDonald was the greatest person to work with throughout this process. She was kind, accommodating and helpful to say the least. Angela (our wedding coordinator) saw that our day ran smoothly and that we stayed running on time. The food was exceptional and so was the service. I am so happy my husband and I chose Robert Ryan to cater our wedding. Everything was perfect that day and they were a big reason why. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to have a perfect wedding day or for any event.

AMAZING... PERFECTION... EXTRAORDINARILY DELICIOUS!!! RRC by far is a class act! Bob Ryan and his staff understand a wedding is about the bride and groom! Everything was tailored to meet the needs of Phil and I! The food was out of this world! They went above and beyond to make us feel as if we were the only wedding they had in over a year and a half time span. They were completely dedicated to our wedding! It showed in their presentation and service to not only Phil and I but to all our guests! Courtney Hoff is a ray of sunshine! Each e-mail she sent offered updated information and was presented in an enthusiastic, professional manor!!! Again a huge (font size 72) thank you to Bob, Courtney, Angela and the rest of the RRC staff for a flawless 7-7! As Bob and Caroline DeBottis (from the Foundry) know I love when things are "perfect" and "perfect' is my word... Thank you for a truly "perfect" experience for Phil and I, our families and our guests!

From the bottom of our hearts... thank you.

I can't say enough wonderful things about Robert Ryan catering. Even though our wedding was just over a year ago now, our family and friends STILL gush about what a beautiful day it was whenever we talk with them and almost all of the credit for that goes to Kristen and the rest of the Robert Ryan catering staff for immediately understanding my vision and making it even better than I imagined. It was very important for us to keep our wedding local and personal and Kristen had the connections and instinct to make that theme AWESOME. We ended up opting not to do the main meal 100% local (although much of it was local by default, since they like to buy close to home whenever possible and all of their herbs come from the head chef's personal garden), but we did have a beautiful local hors d'ouevres display (on a GORGEOUS wooden farm table Kristen found for us underneath the large tree at Appleford) that included local hummus, spinach dip, goat cheese stuffed phylo cups with honey and blueberries, fried oyster mushrooms, and sweet and hot italian sausage with hearth baked rolls. My sister and I created a large chalkboard sign indicating from which farm each item was sourced and they cleverly displayed that on the farm table. It was easy to set up other personal touches too - we delivered all the decorations and favors the day before and it was all perfectly in place when we arrived at the reception at Appleford. We swapped out their standard coffee with coffee from a Nicaraguan co-op with which I did service work in college. We also swapped out the cake for cupcakes my sister, best friend, and I (well, and half my family) baked the day before the wedding - it turned out awesome! It was unbelievably pleasant to work with Kristen - she was always very responsive, very cheerful, and had suggestions anytime we needed it (i.e. how to order wine and beer for 100 people). My mom and I would turn to each other after each meeting and say, "wow, she's good". Thank you so much!!

We loved working with Robert Ryan for our wedding reception at the Columbia Station!!!! They made everything we asked for possible. They were professional and friendly and easy to communicate with. I had one guest with very extensive and specific food restrictions, and Robert Ryan crafted a unique plate just for her after contacting her to make sure that everything they planned would work for her. I would highly, highly recommend Robert Ryan. They also catered the brunch at my parents' house the next morning. Delicious... the most important feedback is this... THE FOOD WAS AMAZING!

From the very start, Bob and Courtney were a dream to work with. They helped tailor our menu and setup at The Phoenixville Foundry so it truly reflected us and what we wanted on our wedding day. Courtney replied to our e-mails and phone calls promptly and made us feel like her priority each time. The day of our wedding was perfect because of our event coordinator, Rachel. She made sure everything went off without a hitch! Our guests raved about the food and our mojito bar!

I do not even know where to begin - Robert Ryan Catering is THAT amazing!

When my husband and I started wedding planning, we really had no idea what we wanted for our big day. We researched several places and one day we drove past Robert Ryan's. My husband remarked that he had eaten there once and the food was so amazing he never forgot it. We saw that they host weddings there and decided to call and set up a meeting. It was the best choice we ever made!

From the initial meeting to the big day, Robert Ryan Catering knows how to make an event seamless and perfect. The food is out of this world amazing. Family and friends kept coming up to us during dinner to tell us how great the food was and how happy they were with everything. I had heard from so many people that you are busy during your reception and do not always get to sit back and enjoy the night: that is NOT the case here! Robert Ryan Catering ensures that you & your new spouse enjoy the evening without a single worry. I had so much fun at my own wedding and the evening was beautiful (despite the rain!).

If you are still searching for a venue, do yourself a favor and call Robert Ryan Catering. Beautiful location, lovely, professional staff, GREAT VALUE (seriously!), amazing food...the list goes on! I cannot say enough about this place - everything was perfect and I cannot thank them enough!

Thank you Robert Ryan Catering for everything you did to make our wedding so wonderful! From our first meeting with Bob, we were impressed with his professionalism and attention to detail. These two traits were consistent throughout the entire wedding process with RRC - from initial meeting to preparation to execution. Courtney was incredible to work with while we coordinated all details related to food and service - she was positive, responsive, understanding, and flexible. After our tasting, we expected delicious food at our wedding, and we were not disappointed. The appetizers and entrees were wonderful, and we received many, many compliments. The service, however, exceeded our expectations. Angela and her staff perfectly executed all aspects of service at the reception. Drinks were butlered at all the right times to prevent lines at the bar, my husband and I were met with a server dedicated to make sure that we had enough food/drink, and the entire event ran like clockwork. We are so pleased with our decision and would certainly recommend Robert Ryan Catering for any catering need. We could not have asked for more! Laura and Tim

There are not even enough words to even begin to explain just how amazing the staff at Robert Ryan are. My mom found them in the phonebook 16 years ago when we were in a pinch for my sister's rehearsal dinner. From then on we have used them for every occassion; from my sweet 16 party to my parent's house warming party. They truly define a family business. For our wedding weekend, we used them for both our rehearsal dinner at their venue The Columbia Station and then as the caterers for our wedding at the Phoenxiville Foundry. I never have met anyone as passionate about food at Bob Ryan. My husband said he wants a recording of Bob's voice to listen to because he decribes food in a way that no one else can. And the descriptions are nothing compared to their presentation of food! It's truly art. And it tastes AMAZING. Bob is also backed by an unbelieveable staff. His assistant Courtney is not only the most helpful person I've ever worked with, she is by far the nicest woman you'll ever meet. Bob's day-of coordinator Angela is a super woman. I don't know how she does it, but she runs a wedding as if there are 6 of her. Everyone at Robert Ryan is extremely talented, dedicated and some of the friendliest peopele in the industry. Everyone should be lucky enough to work with a group of people like the folks at Robert Ryan. They really provide a personal element to such a large event and we are SO thankful for everything they did to make our wedding as amazing as it was.

From our first contact with Bob Ryan in November last year, we knew that his company was going to be our choice for our Daughter Marisa's Wedding Reception. Throughout the planning process, tasting of the Cocktail Hour and Entree selections, plus the day of Wedding was an outstanding experience. Bob, Courtney, Stephanie and Angela our Wedding coordinator the night of the reception. including the wait staff were fabulous. Angela's attentive manner throughout the evening to ensure that every detail was met for Marisa and our guests was constant from the time we walked in till the end of the reception. Finally, what can we say about the food other than it was Delicious and every guest commented on the quality, taste and presentation. Thank you for making Marisa & Michael's Wedding Reception the best gift Althea and I could give them to start their life together. Sincerely, Ed Rolfe

Starting with all of the meetings and communications we had before the event, the staff at Robert Ryan was extremely prompt and gracious in responding to all my questions. Kristen and Stephanie were amazing! They were organized, thorough, and very friendly. All of my emails and calls were returned on the day that I sent/placed them. When I dropped off all our various wedding supplies the day before, the staff made me feel completely confident that everything would go exactly as I pictured. And it did!
On the day of the wedding, my wedding party was greeted in the caboose with appetizers and a champagne toast. The staff was awesome at checking on our party throughout the cocktail hour time, making sure we always had drinks and had plenty of hors d'Oeuvres. Brides told me all the time that they didn't get to eat at their reception - not me! I also heard after the fact that the servers found my mom and brought her out a selection of the hot hors d'Oeuvres for her at her cocktail table - that level of service is awesome! They knew the MOB needed to eat and made sure it happened!
During the reception, our coordinator, Alia, was amazing - always checking on us to make sure everything was going smoothly and that we were happy. The food was elegantly prepared and absolutely delicious - and hot! My guests are still talking about how it was the best wedding food they have ever had. All of the wedding events went perfectly, and our tables were set up exactly how I envisioned.
If you're planning a wedding in the area, do not hesitate to choose Robert Ryan Catering. You will absolutely be blown away by the friendliness, level of services and quality of product you will receive.

From day one, Robert Ryan was as professional as could be. Bob is completely honest with everything up front, so there are no surprises when you get the final bill or see the final set up. We were a little nervous at first, since we had our reception at the Phoenixville Foundry, and we needed to hire a caterer. Most places, like Country Clubs, have people working for them that take care of everything. The Foundry was different - we needed a caterer to run everything. Our nerves went right away the first time we talked to Bob. He is so professional, and caters to your every need. His assistants, such as Courtney, respond so quickly to every email/phone call.

Most importantly, the food is absolutely phenomenal! I can't say enough about the presentation and taste of the food. We had so many compliments from our guests.

I would highly recommend Robert Ryan to anyone looking for a caterer - they pay so much attention to detail that I promise you will not be disappointed!

Robert Ryan made it easy and effortless to get everything together we needed to have a fantastic wedding. We were more of a do-it-yourself couple and we were shocked at the amount of time and effort the staff put into our wedding. It was hard to not be in control-but they did a supurb job of calming our nerves and making sure everything was set up correctly. Everyone was raving about the food- from the savory appetizers to the sit down meals, our guests were extremely happy with our selections because they were delicious! The staff catered to the couples familes and our parent's were pleasently surprised at the great service. Robert Ryan was all around a pleasure to work with and are complete wedding professionals!

If you want innovative and tasty food for you wedding or event then Robert Ryan is perfect for you. The food at our wedding was more than we could ask for thanks to Robert Ryan. They have an endless menu to choose from, or would work with you if you wanted something a little different. Bob and his crew always had new ideas they were working on to keep their menu expanding and current, and changed with the season. There was an endless amount of food from cocktail hour to dessert. The food was all very hot and tasty for each guest and got rave reviews from everyone!

They are a full-service caterer. They provide help with everything from food, to decorations, to timelines and schedules. They are excellent at what they do. My entire family loves them! Their food is delicious- go to a tasting and discover how tasteful their selections are. LOVE THEM!

Robert Ryan Catering and Columbia Station were phenomenal when it came to planning my wedding. I was very impressed and so happy with the staff. Courtney Hoff was who I worked with through out every step and she was so helpful and sweet and made my wedding planning so much easier. The food was incredible. We loved the choice of appetizers and entrees. We received many compliments from our guests on how good the food was. Bob Ryan knew exactly what he was talking about when it came to food and service. Robin was very good the day of the wedding also. She made sure everything ran smooth and did a wonderful job. I can't express enough how pleased and happy my husband, my family and I were with Robert Ryan and Columbia Station. They made my wedding day perfect and I was sad to see the day over.

We could not be any happier with the way my daughter's wedding turned out. Bob Ryan and Columbia Station and ALL the staff were wonderful to work with and followed through with absolutely everything they promised. The food was great and the venue is absolutely awesome. We had the ceremony outside in the garden area on a beautiful day in June and it was just so special. We have gotten so many compliments on the ceremony and our choice of venues. I would HIGHLY recommend Bob Ryan and his staff, as well as Columbia Station. Special thanks to Robin, our event coordinator!

Robert Ryan is a fantastic catering company. The food selections, first of all are so numerous it was really easy to decide what to serve because there were so many options. The head chef, and a great majority of their staff are always attending seminars and trainings in order to bring the best to their events. They also take into consideration the time of season and provide options that would fit every event theme. The quality of their food and the way it is prepared is beyond words. I made sure to eat on the night of my wedding (as difficult as it was at times with guests wanting to talk) because the food tasted so great. We have heard nothing but compliments from our guests as well on what a fantastic job Robert Ryan did with the food preparation and the service. There were times in the room where the bridal party was waiting while having cocktail hour, when they made specific requests for hor'devours and they were brought out right away. All of the staff were dress exquisitely and the day of the event coordinator was fantastic, Alia. She made sure every detail was perfect. She also checked in with me as events were to take place to make sure I was ready to do them, like cut the cake, toss the bouquet and such. This is a wonderful company and everyone is extremely friendly and kind!

We could not be happier with our wedding, which includes both the food and location at Columbia Station. They were great to work with and threw an even better event. After searching high and low for the right place and the right price, we found a gold mine. Not many places had a better price, and those that did, certainly did not have the ambience and quality of food that Columbia Station had to offer. I would recomend it to anyone.

I cannot say enough about how wonderful Robert Ryan was to work with. I had a very specific vision for our reception and they executed it even better than I could have imagined. They worked with us to create a menu that we wanted - even though some of the dishes were new to them. They did everything they could to make sure we were happy. They set up all of the centerpieces, a candy buffet, dessert table, and tons of extras perfectly - they were like a caterer and wedding coordinator in one! Throughout the planning process they were extremely responsive and open to all of our ideas. Angela and the rest of her day of team were amazing. They found us outside (in the freezing cold) while we were taking pictures to being us appetizers and drinks. And the food was beyond amazing. Our photographers said it was the best food they have had at a wedding in a long time - and they go to a lot of weddings! We are just sad we didn't get a chance to taste more of it now. People are still raving about how wonderful everything was. We just wish we could go back for a tasting now to try everything we missed that night. The entire Robert Ryan staff was a joy to work with and they made our reception everything we imagined and more!

Our October 29th wedding ceremony and reception with Robert Ryan Catering at their venue, Columbia Station was the happiest day of our lives. From the moment we arrived (an hour before ceremony) we were treated with the utmost respect and professionalism. Everything was perfectly set up, just the way my husband and I had envisioned. Our event was run like a tight ship. Everything went smoothly...again, just as we had hoped. Details were first class! The food was wonderful as were the ever flowing drinks. Our assigned day of coordinator, Alia, was as best as they come. I felt so relieved knowing she was running everything and I could relax and thoroughly enjoy myself. She's definitely a keeper. And who wouldn't love working with the Robert Ryan family? Everyone was a pleasure to work with and answered all of our questions leading up to our day.
Our guests are still calling and emailing telling us it was the best reception they have ever been to. I would relive this day a million times over and I each time I would have our event with Robert Ryan. I'm really going to miss my communication(s) with them. They will always hold a special for my husband and me. If you don't go there and see for yourself, you're missing out.

My fiance Brendan and I spent months looking for the perfect caterer for our October 15th wedding at The Merion Tribute House. From the first phone call I made to Robert Ryan Catering they were nothing less than the best. Our first tasting was completely impressive and our final product was amazing, piping hot and beautiful. All of our wedding guests have complimented on how organized our seated dinner was, the servers knew who every person was at each table and what they were having for dinner.

Finally, after doing our research regarding other caterers you definitely get way more for your money from Robert Ryan.

Lastly, the entire Ryan Family made us feel like a family member, not just a customer. They did everything to make our day perfect!

Not only did Robert Ryan Catering at Columbia Station make our day seamless, but the whole planning process was easy and direct. There was no "fine print" or gimmicks, and they made sure to create a day that reflected who we are as a couple. Julie was our day-of person and she rocked it! I had no worries the whole day because I knew we were in good hands. We did stations with delicious interactive food and our guests loved it all (especially after the wedding when we got to chow down on the leftovers)!

Not only did Robert Ryan Catering at Columbia Station make our day seamless, but the whole planning process was easy and direct. There was no "fine print" or gimmicks, and they made sure to create a day that reflected who we are as a couple. Julie was our day-of person and she rocked it! I had no worries the whole day because I knew we were in good hands. We did stations with delicious interactive food and our guests loved it all (especially after the wedding when we got to chow down on the leftovers)! We received so many compliments on everything and owe so much to RRC. They are a family owned business and we felt like family. THANK YOU! Read less

Since I work for this company, I have very positive feelings towards Robert Ryan Catering AND I have the inside scoop. I have been working for Bob Ryan since I was fifteen so of course, when it was my turn to get married, I couldn't think of any other caterer to hire for the wedding. Bob was my official sales person but I can honestly say that everyone in the company was available for me to talk to about my wedding. Any time I called, e-mailed, or just stopped in with a question, I got the answers that I needed right away. Robert Ryan Catering made my planning smooth and stress free. Bob really works with what the bride and groom want, supplementing the sample menus with any ideas or wants that the client has. The staff was kind and very professional. My parents were raving about how smoothly the event flowed from the ceremony to the cocktail hour, all through dinner and dancing. I have worked hundreds of weddings as waitstaff for this company, and yet RRC made my wedding unique and special, fitting our personality and style. This company truly and personally cares about making your wedding perfect. I woudln't recommend anyone else!

My husband and I felt well taken care of the entire evening and never had to worry about a thing. Angela, Bob and the Robert Ryan staff made our evening perfect!

Robert Ryan Catering - hands down - is the most amazing vendor to book for your reception needs! We loved the fact that Robert Ryan Catering is family owned and you can tell that the staff cares deeply about running a smooth event and one that you'll fully enjoy. As promised, they were extremely flexible with meeting our budget needs without sacrificing great tasting food. Our guests couldn't stop talking about the delicious food and our "mini-entree" options served at the reception. Using this buffet technique, our guests had tons of options and lots of variety to choose from. While we were getting pictures done, we even had our own personal waitress to serve us drinks in order to stay hydrated in the summer heat. During the day, Robert Ryan also provides an "event coordinator" who helps guide your guests to the next part of the reception and also keeps the bride and groom on schedule; Angela was awesome!!! We were so grateful to not hire an additional wedding planner for the "day of" because Robert Ryan provided this great service. So do yourself a favor, and plan a tasting with them because you won't regret it!

I cannot tell you how happy I am that we had our wedding and reception at the Columbia Station! Robert Ryan and Courtney were so professional and very willing to help us have a great wedding and delicious food on our budget. We got married on May 30, 2010 in the garden at the Columbia Station. It was beautiful. Afterwards, we moved inside the ballroom for our reception. The room looked beautiful. I cannot tell you how many of our guests were raving about the food that Robert Ryan Catering provided! We had mini entree stations and there was so much food to choose from! Robert Ryan Catering is outstanding and willing to work with our budget. Robin was our wedding coordinator and she was fantastic! Everyone there was just great and we had an absolutely perfect wedding day!

ladies, if you are on the fence about RRC, just do it! they totally rocked out my wedding! do the complementary tasting which allows you to get a sense for what they offer. we actually did 2 separate tastings with RRC b/c we wanted to make sure we were in love with the food and entrees we chose and i never felt any pressure to make a decision quickly. stephanie was awesome to work with; very prompt to respond same day to my many emails and had good suggestions. she was very organized and she & her staff came through on our wedding day. i know many guests said that the food was great...we actually ate most of the appetizers served and our entrees, and have 1st hand knowledge that the food was tasty. we also had RRC do our "welcome bbq/rehearsal dinner" at our home and the food was sooo good! stephanie is a gem and i really appreciated it when she expressed concern that taking on the rehearsal dinner at our home might be too much stress for us (even at the expense of not getting this addl job). the bbq was a huge success thanks to RRC as they made sure that everything went smoothly! best of luck wedding planning!

I could not picture my wedding and reception at any other venue. The staff was helpful, professional, and extremely accommodating. I am usually one to worry about details and on my wedding day I had ZERO worries. The even had to switch the event coordinator the day of the wedding due to sickness, but I had NO complaints and everything went off without a hitch. I would highly recommend both Columbia Station, Robert Ryan Catering, and it's staff to everyone who wants to listen!

When your daughter comes up to you and says "Mom this is my fairy tale wedding and I feel like a Princess" you know you did something right. Robert Ryan made the entire night a dream come true. The servers went around to every table and made sure everyone was enjoying themselves. The food was so good and the bartendar was awesome making those home made Apple Martini's. Carrie our wedding coordinator was so attentive to us especially my daughter and made everything that we wanted happen and it went so smooth with no worries, that's what I liked the most. To the wedding song, to the toast, to the dancing and making sure everything was cleaned up afterwards. I didn't have to do a thing and it was a house wedding in the yard. It looked like a beautiful hall with the tent and the tables were all done up. I couldn't have asked for anyting better. Thanks Robert Ryan for the great food, service and advise.

Robert Ryan Cartering is amazing. They are a family owned business that is willing to work with you around your budget. Every person I spoke with was kind and helpful from the salespeople to the waitstaff. They took everything in hand on our wedding day and took care of all the details, even holding onto our envelopes so we didn't have to worry about them! They coordinated with the DJ and photographer so everyone knew what was going on and when. The food was perfect! Tasty and just the right portion! I can not say enough good things about them.

The food was incredible and enjoyed by all our guests - of every age. When a torrential downpour interrupted our ceremony they were completely unfazed and reset in a new location within minutes. Bob & company even went out of their way to order special stands for my table cards the week before the wedding. I can't say enough about their professionalism - they were a joy to work with!

After searching and looking into many places for hoasting our wedding ceremony and reception we went went to The Columbia Station, Robert Ryan Catering. We fell in love with the place right away. It is beautiful and historic. We were greeted by friendly people and all of our interactions were comfortable and geared towards my and my husbands needs. They were able to give us exactly what we wanted and even went above and beyond our expectations. The day of our wedding couldn�t have gone more smoothly and they even provided someone to coordinate the whole event and make sure we had everything we needed every step of the way. Everyone was extremely kind, helpful and professional not to mention their food is amazing. For a very reasonable price they provided the most creative and delicious food that was presented in a gourmet way. All of our guest were very impressed by it all and we couldn�t be happier. We would recommend Robert Ryan Catering to anyone!

Not to mention, the hordrv's were out of this world. I have been receiving comments from our friends and family about the exceptional service. Every need was met with the utmost attention. My daughter was blown away by the way they catered to her and her finance that day by bringing drinks and food to them as they were waiting for the photographer to gather individuals for photos. Pleasant, patience, friendly, and understanding people to work with. I highly recommend Robert Ryan Catering to any bride. Thanks for a great job..and well worth the money.

I thought that Robert Ryan Catering was always available to answer any questions or concerns I had. There were very responsive to any needs of mine. They went above in beyond in service. For example, they added a hot appetizer and a speciality drink, free of charge!!! Plus I just came in under the # of guests for a free chocolate fountain and they gave it to us anyway. Awesome in every aspect!!! Read less

I had nothing but great experiences with Robert Ryan Catering. I probably could have skipped hiring a separate wedding planner because between Robert and his daughter Stephanie, they had a handle on almost everything. There was an issue with my venue which Stephanie handled and I knew at that point I had made the right decision. Robert and his chef are really creative, and they bring a lot of great ideas to the table. He made sure the food not only tasted good, but looked good on the plate. Our guests raved about the food, from the cocktail hour to dessert. The chocolate river was a hit, and a little different from your average chocolate fountain. Robert Ryan also provided us with bartenders and tables/linens which were also very good. He steered me away from making bad choices in my coloring, which turned out perfectly thanks to him. He's very experienced, and had everything running very smoothly the entire time. I would definitely recommend them to any bride to be.

We had our wedding at The Barn on Bridge; one of Robert Ryan's owned venues. They were accommodating from the beginning. Because I keep kosher, I had some restrictions on the food, and they worked with all of them. The food was delicious. Many guests commented on how good the food was. They also offer so many options of food, which really stood out in the hunt for wedding venue. They will even create whatever dish you like, if it's not on their menu. The staff that works for Robert Ryan and The Barn on Bridge are fantastic.

It's been a little over a month since our wedding and our friends and family are still saying what a great time they had! The team at Robert Ryan could not have been more friendly and accomodating and were just as excited about our big day as we were :-)

Robert Ryan Catering at Columbia Station provided customer service and gourmet food beyond our expectations! From our first meeting, the planning was about what we wanted and how they could provide it - not what they could provide and we had to make a choice. We designed our menu to our tastes. Every single detail was planned and followed through. Nothing was too much to ask. It was the most wonderful wedding day! We wish we could do it again - and we would be right back at Columbia Station!

I couldn't have asked for a more flexible and accomodating caterer. Robert Ryan's staff was so helpful on the day of and made sure that everything went smoothly and met my needs. I was able to personalize the menu to incorporate my husband and my taste and to still make all the guests happy. The coctail hour was a hit and I was even able to match my cake flavor with a sorbet to make it pop. They also have great tasting events that allow you to really experience their choices that made choosing entrees and hors d'ourves really easy. Definitely recommended!

The food was outstanding. The servers found me during the reception so that I got a taste of all of the hors d'oeuvres - delicious! And the manchego rice balls were great, as were the kebobs especially the chicken ones. We also really liked the flatbreads and brought some home on the plane with us. All the leftovers were boxed up and left in the fridge for us to easily send home with family the next day.

All of the servers were wonderful. They were attentive without being intrusive, and were able to set up the tables inside the Faunbrook with little fuss when it looked like it would rain on the patio. The dining room looked amazing when they lit all the candles and turned the light down - the room seemed to glow, and the tables were set beautifully. The bartender was great and the drinks flowed well all evening (with the exception of the champagne - see below).

Angela deserves an additional level of appreciation for all that she did to keep the evening running smoothly. She was amazing. She was completely on top of all the details and kept me in the loop when I needed to be. She provided an extra artistic touch by creating the beautiful centerpiece bowls of hydrangeas, and wrapping ribbons and flowers around the flower girl's basket. She was great about keeping track of the time and moving us easily from one part of the schedule to the next. Thanks for sending her our way!

The only thing I would have changed in hindsight was to have more champagne poured after the first round of toasts. We didn't think to ask at the time, and we had a lot left over. I think people would have enjoyed another glass. But that's a minor thing - overall the evening was magical, better than my fiance and I ever imagined.

From the moment we booked Robert Ryan for our March 2012 wedding, we knew we had made the best choice. They helped to make our wedding planning easy, stress-free, and most importantly, kept us organized and on top of all the little details! Courtney and Bob were always so quick to get back to my every question and request, and were genuinely excited and thrilled to help us create the day of our dreams. Any request we had or change we made was met with flexibility and a "can-do" attitude. Our speciality micro-brew beer bar was a huge success, and our guests were pleased with all the special touches that made our wedding so wonderful and personal. The day of the wedding, the RRC staff were super friendly, and they made sure to keep bride, groom, and parents happy with food and drink in hand. Angela, our day-of coordinator was every bride's dream, making sure things ran smoothly and we were taken care of. I would certainly recommend RRC to anyone planning a wedding or any other event!

We had a very good experience working with Robert Ryan Catering and Design for our wedding at the Phoenixville Foundry. During the planning process, they were very helpful and responsive, always willing to answer questions, and they took care of small details, even ordering some linens from another vendor to get the color that we wanted. On the day of the wedding, everything went very smoothly and the staff set up all the items just as we had discussed, including coordinating some special extra items such as a birthday cake. The food was excellent - everything was cooked perfectly and they were able to accommodate special dietary requests with ease. There were some minor issues, such as one guest table missing a seat, and non-alcoholic beverages did not appear to be served before our ceremony as we had been told. However, overall, Robert Ryan Catering and Design did a great job considering all that they took care of that day - it was very seamless, the staff were all incredibly professional, and we were very happy with the service.

Robert Ryan Catering provided DELICIOUS food for our wedding. We received several compliments on specific dishes. We had a buffet, and in NO way did it diminish the quality of the food, in both taste and appearance. One thing that could have made it better -- we had asked for a Philly pretzel/water station at the end of the night, and it wasn't done.

We still LOVED our experience, and would recommend Robert Ryan to a friend or family member! We enjoyed delicious food and excellent service!

Robert Ryan Catering hosted our wedding reception back in 2010. While the food was great, the service was just OK. We met and corresponded with Robert & Stephanie every step of the way, and then a week before our wedding reception we were told we were going to have someone else as the main point of contact for the day. I was quite a stickler for details with the wedding, and even provided them a detailed seating chart based on the floor plan, and when we arrived for our reception, they had modified our floor plan a bit, and ended up placing one of our family tables several tables away by the exit instead of directly next to the head table which was requested. It caused quite a bit of hurt feelings, and uneasiness that day. Their solution was to relocate the family table next to the head table, and ask everyone to change tables. NO WAY! My solution was to serve our family table first, and they were able to accomodate. When we tried to follow up with Robert Ryan himself, and even wrote a letter about our experience, we still have yet to receive acknowledgement or explanation of the situation. We kept the situation quiet so not to cause a stir with the other guests, and it did dampen the beginning of our reception, but we still had a wonderful time.
The food was wonderful and tasty and a great selection for the price we paid.
If you decide this for your wedding venue, I would absolutely suggest having the bar in the reception room. It would keep all of the guests contained to the one space, rather than scattered in the cocktail room. We had roughly 135 guests and 2 bartenders was definately not enough. Fortunately as the bride, I didn't have to wait, (it would have been nice if our maitre 'd for the day remembered mine & my husbands drink choice, as we were busy entertaining all the guests) but the lines were quite long each time.
It's a different venue, with a nice warm feeling, and great food.

It would keep all of the guests contained to the one space, rather than scattered in the cocktail room. We had roughly 135 guests and 2 bartenders was definately not enough. Fortunately as the bride, I didn't have to wait, (it would have been nice if our maitre 'd for the day remembered mine & my husbands drink choice, as we were busy entertaining all the guests) but the lines were quite long each time.
It's a different venue, with a nice warm feeling, and great food. Read less
