My husband and I booked Rocklands to cater our wedding back in January. From our initial tasting, to the day of, Rocklands was extremely professional and easy to communicate with. Their catering menu is quite vast (not just barbeque!) and they even prepared special plates for our vegetarian and vegan guests! Carmen handled our tasting and contract. She was very personable and readily brought us dishes we had not initially asked for during our tasting. She also quickly responded to my many questions and let us change our menu multiple times leading up to the big day. Rocklands also handled our rentals for the venue (i.e. tables, flatware, and linens). Wayland was present at our final walkthrough at the venue, and helped us decide on table layout for the buffet and reception. All of our guests commented on how great the service was and of course complimented the food! I highly recommend Rocklands Barbecue and Grilling Company for any catering event, but it was clear that they've done many weddings before! I was especially impressed at how smoothly the setup and flip for the reception went. I could not have been happier with their work!

The service provided was above and beyond what we expected and so welcome! The server was very capable and anticipated everyone's needs. The tables and food looked great and were kept tidy and clean looking. The server made sure we knew to ask him if we needed anything. He was very efficient.

We used Rocklands to cater our Rehearsal Dinner and were thrilled with their services! We loved being able to use a company that was local and unique to DC. They were always responsive and helpful in answering all of our questions. The quality of food was fantastic and our guests loved the food. Overall, a great experience with Rocklands and would highly recommend to others!

I cannot say enough great things about working with Rocklands. First of all, the price blows everyone else out of the water. If you are from DC you know their food is unbeatable, plus their food is mostly local which is a nice touch.

They were super responsive, and Anne and Wayland are a wedding dream team. They've done so many weddings it's like well oiled machine, and they thought of all the things we didn't think of (but were absolutely NOT pushy about anything). They are also super friendly and warm which is kind of a weird thing to think about wedding vendors, but they were so great to have as part of our day. I had been really stressed out with wedding planning and by the time I left the tasting I felt completely relieved and excited. Super flexible, they even called in to make a few changes 2 hours before the wedding started when we realized we hadn't brought enough beer (we were stocking our own bar and using their bartenders, they had no problem having someone run beer to us. Who does that!)

We did a buffet and had 200 people through in 30 minutes. Plenty of food, and they actually have some fancy cocktail hour options (who knew!). We also used their bartenders who were really fast and professional.

I really can't recommend them enough, they added so much to our wedding! They also do EVERYTHING. I think they even had an option for a mechanical bull! And they've worked with everyone and were familiar with our venue, DJ and the staff we had there which was really nice.

Rocklands catered our wedding and it was awesome! When we were planning the wedding, we didn't want boring food like a dry piece of salmon that had been sitting on a hot plate for a few hours with some uninspired vegetables that cost a small fortune per person. Instead, we wanted delicious good that pleases a crowd. We both love BBQ so we decided to call Rocklands. Rocklands' staff was fantastic in helping us get a quote and plan the menu. Our tasting was so much fun too! Carmen from Rocklands walked us through all the different options and how to make it work from the budget perspective. They were flexible to accept changes (like adding bar fruit (lemons, olives, etc.) to our quote at last minute). During the wedding, their staff was AWESOME! All their staff, from the managers to bar tenders, servers, and kitchen staff were super professional, attentive, and on top of all details. There was a manager on staff that made sure that we (bride & groom) got to eat and were doing OK with drinks, etc. The food was delicious (ribs, pulled chicken, brisket, baked beans, mac and cheese, corn bread, grilled veggies, passed appetizers, etc.) and many of my guests pointed out how much they liked the food. I highly recommend Rocklands as your wedding caterer but also to cater any other event!
