I cannot begin to say enough good things about Roundz catering! My husband and I were looking for great food for a small price and that is impossible, especially in Maryland. Typically, when you are searching for a caterer, they tell you what your options are. You can have this for a said amount, or you can have this. Never were these options fees-able for us. Until Roundz. Zach, the owner and head chef made our vision possible. He asked us what we wanted to spend and he created our menu based on that. There were no preset options. It was all made individual to our wants and needs.At our tastings, he made so many different things and just kept feeding us until we decided what we wanted. His passion for food is evident immediately. He is not in this for the money. He genuinely loves what he does. The food is not only fantastic, but it is beautiful. Presentation is everything. If it doesn't look good, people aren't going to eat it. And the way he presented our food made it look like we had spent $50/plate. Not half the price. Shannon, his assistant, was just as fantastic. Helping us figure out all the details of the food and rentals as well. She took care of everything. We just showed up. All the linens were just as I had imagined. They are pretty fantastic. The servers and bartenders were great and we received so many compliments on how professional and kind they were. The food was fantastic. It was an awesome night! I would recommend Roundz to anyone and would definitely choose them again for any of our future catering needs.

Zach and Shannon were a pleasure to work with from the beginning to the end. When I first met with Zach, I didn't have a specific menu in mind. Zach asked me questions about what type of food my husband and I enjoyed and then tailored a menu based on our interest. Zach also took in mind our venue and wedding theme when making suggestions.

The food was great quality and certainly not typical "wedding food". My husband and I visited several caterers before coming to Roundz but felt that the other food were bland and boring. Roundz does a great job presenting the food and we received numerous compliments about their displays and service.

I would highly recommend Roundz Catering to anyone looking for a fun and tasty caterer :)

The process of finding a caterer seemed pretty daunting when we began meeting with different vendors. Fortunately, we eventually came across Zack and Roundz Catering.

Right away it was refreshing how accommodating and versatile he was in order to give us what we wanted. He also was able to draw on his experience and knowledge of food to put together the ideal menu for our time of year. Zack had us into Roundz for multiple tastings to make sure we had the perfect meal.

In addition to the delicious food (and hit signature drink), Roundz provided excellent servers and bartenders that kept things going smoothly.

I certainly recommend Roundz Catering.

Chef Pope of Roundz catered our wedding, and these are the two biggest things we remember from that experience:
1. The buffet food was phenomenal - better than most plated dinners we've had at weddings. I expected to like it (after all, we'd chosen him after trying a number of other caterers), but I had no idea it would be as delicious as it was. I got so many compliments on the caterer - I don't know if that's common, but at least twenty people mentioned how good the food was.
2. The staff was very professional and helpful. I used to work at a country club where the wait staff were all giggling high school girls. Chef Pope's staff was the exact opposite - discreet, quick, experienced, and accommodating. He even had two guys load up two plates with everything from the buffet before we sat down, so my wife and I didn't have to get up. That's probably something they do at every wedding, but I didn't expect it, so it really resonated with me.
I would unquestioningly recommend Chef Pope and Roundz for any catering event, wedding or not. To get a taste of some of the things Chef Pope can do, I'd also suggest signing up for one of the Roundz After Dark dinners, where he tries new recipes in interesting ways.

Roundz did an absolutely fantastic job with my wedding! Their services went above and beyond that of just catering. Shannon and the rest of her staff were always around helping not just me but also my wedding guests. They knew what we wanted even before we did and were so genuinely kind. The food was delicious! We got a great price and high quality food. My guests raved about the food and were going for seconds and thirds. I would highly recommend Roundz to anyone looking for a caterer!!!

Roundz did a fantastic job catering my wedding on June 1st. From the first meeting, Zach and Shannon made my husband and I feel welcome and had great ideas about reception food, not to mention how great the actual food tasted! Throughout the months leading up to the wedding, Shannon was wonderful-she listened to all my crazy ideas and questions and responded to me in a timely matter. The day of the wedding went seamlessly. Shannon and her staff did a perfect job staffing the bar, serving the food, and cleaning up. We have received numerous compliments that our wedding had the best food! I recommend Roundz to anyone needing a affordable, reliable catering company.

I think everyone knows the stigma about wedding food. Not very good, over cooked, too cold, etc. Well let me tell you something, Roundz will blow your mind! Not only are the staff extremely friendly and accommodating the food is EXCEPTIONAL! All of my guests loved the meal and couldn't believe that it was cooked off site and over an hour before it was actually served. Most brides I've spoken to mention that you don't really get the time to eat and enjoy the meal, but I did. I took the time to savor it all and encourage you to do the same! I could not rave more about Chef Pope, Shannon and all of the staff that helped make my wedding day truly magical.

Roundz was perfect. I have to say from the first minute we met Zach until the very end of the night I was always happy with him and his work. We had gone to several other catering places to try out their food, and had paid the steep prices to do a tasting. It was such a surprise when we scheduled to do a tasting that he said come right in and I'll treat you to dinner! His approach was exactly the opposite of everyone else, and thank god! That's just we we needed. He asked us what we wanted, what we liked, what our budget was and what we were thinking about in the way of food. He didn't make us just choose off a list of 5 items, he was completely flexible and cared about what we wanted. We did two tastings, and both were literally the best food I've ever had! We booked Zach immediately, and it was the best choice we made. We had steak with an amazing sauce on top, chicken saltimbocca, a trio of potatoes and a veggie medley. The appetizers were great, and everyone loved them. Since the day of the wedding all I keep here is that our food was the best food anyone has ever had at a wedding. Everyone, including ourselves, at all of it, and I know several people who went back to the buffet for 3 or 4 servings because it was just so amazingly tasty! I really loved his work. Even when he came to the venue to do the walk through for the kitchen, he had a great attitude and was so so so helpful. He gave me helpful hints on what people would want for seating, and serving and such. I think he could probably just take up wedding coordination if he suddenly got the inkling, he was just so on top of every little detail without loosing the big picture. I would recommend him to anyone for any event or dinner in the future! Zach was the best!

We were hoping to find a caterer for life, however unfortunately when it came to the wedding day, Roundz fell short.

There are so many great things I can say about Zach all the way up until the wedding day, and even on the wedding day itself as he did an amazing job with almost everything...except for the food...

My only compliant is that he served a different main dish than what we had tried at our tasting and was in our contract. The meal he served was delicious, however it was not what we ordered.

When we contacted him after the wedding, it took him weeks to get back to us...and we never actually found out what happened...almost 1 year later, we still have no idea why we were served a different meal...all I was hoping for was an explanation, which I never received.

Yes, Roundz is a great caterer and Zach is a friendly person, however my review is based on the lack of management and responsiveness AFTER the wedding.

I hope he has made a few changes and continues to provide the services for which he has received such high reviews on. Unfortunately for us, we got him on an "off" day and cannot recommend Roundz to our friends and family like we were hoping to from the beginning.

Zach and Roundz catering were also amazing. You'll see from the other reviews that we got very lucky with our vendors. For people looking into caterers you may not realize how much work they actually have to do. Zach was referred to us through a friend and was the ONLY caterer that actually started off by asking us what we liked. What a breakthrough concept! Zach put together an amazing shrimp and scallop ceviche and catered the menu to what we would enjoy for a summer wedding. His pricing is fair and the customizable approach he has to his clients is great. I would recommend Roundz to anyone.
