With over 20 years of experience at our own premier venues, The Columbia Station, The Barn on Bridge, Welkinweir Estate, and many off-premise venues in the tri-state area, there is nothing we can't do or anywhere we won't go! We can come to your house to make your dream wedding come true at the comfort of your own home, you can come to any of our own venues, or you can take us anywhere they allow outside catering! Some of the places we visit regularly, include: Appleford Estate, The Washington at Historic Yellow Springs, Brandywine Manor House, and The Barn at High Point. Our expertise stretches beyond food as Robert Ryan Catering & Design can also coordinate your linens, tables, chairs, tent, china, flatware, furniture rentals and more.

PERFECT. That is the word which our guests have been using to describe our wedding. Our wedding was held at Welkinweir Estates in Pottstown, for which RRCD is the exclusive caterer. From start to finish the staff from RRCD was impeccable and responsive to our every need. Through the planning stages to the tasting, to packing up at the end of the night, everyone was helpful and insightful. We had a few rather unique requests which were accommodated with zero questions. Further, our guests simply cannot stop raving about the food! Lastly, our day-of event coordinator was absolutely amazing! Lastly, if you want a caterer/event planner that treats you like royalty for your wedding (as they should) look no further! Your day will be perfect, you will be relaxed, and best of all, you won't leave hungry! I would absolutely recommend RRCD for any upcoming wedding.

First let me start off by saying how perfect everything was on our wedding day. Everything from the facility to the food to the staff was absolutely amazing. We are still receiving compliments on the how phenomenal the food tasted and was presented. The venue is gorgeous with so many intimate areas for spectacular photos! My husband and I both can not say enough great things about Connor, Tracy and Lisa as well as the entire staff at Barn on Bridge. They truly made our day perfect by going above and beyond to make it unique to our personalities as well as catering to our every need! They anticipated needs that we never even knew we had. They were on top of everything at all times. This review simply does not do them justice for the amount of excellence they showed us. We cannot thank Robert Ryan Catering and Barn on Bridge enough.... A true pleasure to work with for sure.

AWESOME! We had our wedding at the Barn on Bridge, and they could not have possibly been more accommodating! We loved everything - the barn looked beautiful, and they did everything for us! It was definitely as stress-free as possible. Everyone we dealt with on their team was friendly, professional, and helpful. And the food was to-die-for-delicious! So many people have contacted us to tell us how good it was! We were so happy we went with them for our wedding day!

We got married at a nearby church and then had our reception at Welkinweir Estate, which is an absolutely gorgeous, rustic venue. Robert Ryan Catering & Design handled our entire reception event from start to finish. Throughout the planning process, they really helped to make our decisions about food choices, reception set-up, the bar, the "flow" of the reception, etc. very easy. They guided us throughout the whole process and made us feel like we were in good hands. They responded quickly to emails. They made last minute adjustments for us (like ordering heaters for the reception/moving the location of the bar from outside to inside based on the weather). While they are a catering service, they really become the coordinators for the entire reception. They helped us to come up with an itinerary for the reception and to figure out timing for all the different pieces - first dance, cake cutting, father-daughter dance, etc. They also provide a "day of" wedding coordinator. Our coordinator was Barbara and she was wonderful!
The food Robert Ryan provides is excellent. The food choices are extensive and very creative. They even let us "design" a couple of our own hors d'oeuvres. The dinner was delicious. We chose to do a seated dinner - bread, soup, and an entree were all served to our guests. The entree choices were a strip steak, seabass, and tuscan chicken. Everyone who had the seabass and steak loved their meal. The chicken only got mediocre reviews from the guests though. Although the food was delicious, it was not served hot (temperature-wise) even though we specifically requested that this was important to us! However, that is truly the only complaint with the service that we had.
Overall, Robert Ryan Catering & Design is an excellent vendor. Very professional, helpful, and just good people. If I had to do it all over again, I would choose them without a doubt!

I cannot say enough good things about Robert Ryan Catering. Over the past year in preparation for our wedding, their staff has been SO helpful and responsive. My husband and I live out of state, so planning a wedding several thousand miles away was a little daunting, but Robert Ryan and his team made the process seamless. From the first day we met Bob Ryan, I knew it would be a positive experience, but I cannot tell you how incredibly positive it was!! Not only was the food delicious, but their entire team was amazing. We got married at Welkinweir, one of their exclusive venues, and it was just beautiful. I could not think of a better place to get married. Our event coordinator, Barbara was simply amazing!! She took every bit of anxiety and worry out of my mind and was really great!! From the rehearsal, to the day of, Barbara was there to help with anything we needed - and was so proactive that there was very little for me to even think about! I am so glad we chose to work with Robert Ryan Catering and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for phenomenal service.

Our experience planning our daughter's wedding was amazing! The staff at Robert Ryan Catering made the process easy from the very start. Bob was great to work with and always made our needs and requests his number 1 priority. The bride and groom lived out of town and the long distance arrangements were never a problem for the staff. The day of the event went so smoothly thanks to the attentive staff and our wedding coordinator, Barbara. We never had to think about anything but enjoying the wedding from start to finish. Food was presented beautifully and was delicious. At the end of the evening, all of our belongings were packed up and ready for us to take. Thanks to all the staff at Robert Ryan Catering for making our wedding absolutely perfect.

I can't say enough great things about the folks at Robert Ryan Catering and the Columbia Station. Not only was the venue interesting, historical and different (it's an old refurbished train station), the food was delicious and catered to my needs, the staff was wonderful and my personal consultant went above and beyond to make sure I was happy throughout the entire process. I would highly reccomend both this caterer and location. It is visiually stimulating, delicious, a great space and great pricing. As an event planner who works with a lot of different venues, I feel very strongly working with them is one of the best experiences I've ever had (thank goodness it was for my wedding!).
