The staff at the Bashful Butler was friendly and helpful. However, Ryan, the coordinator, was disorganized, often made promises he could not deliver, and was not available for questions or meetings. Ben, to whom Ryan referred to as his supervisor, was equally unavailable.

The food was absolutely delicious. Our coordinators Kathy & Grace were absolutely wonderful to work with. Our planner, Ryan was so easy to work with. He was very reassuring and helped us out so much when needing schedule around out of town guests. Their company took care of everything for us, leaving little worries on our end on how the event will run. They were all there to help us with everything we needed. Highly recommend!

Bashful Butler was the catering service designated to Hurst Ranch, where I was married on 05/26/2012. I was a bit hesitant at first because you pretty much hire them blind. There is no tasting until after you hire them. The tasting was not a sit down tasting either. They let you know what day they are preparing the same meal as you have selected or are considering and then you need to show up to their kitchen or hall. After we had our tasting we felt a great sense of relief because the food was good.

The person I worked with to book our wedding was Nancy. I booked about 9 months before the wedding and we put together an outline of what we wanted. Two weeks before the wedding we met up again to discuss all the details. We finalized the menu and discussed the timeline to make sure they were ready for the toast and the cake cutting.

The catering staff was very helpful on day of our wedding as we needed some last minutes tables set up outside for our ceremony. I was also able to drop off our burlap table squares a few days before so they could be set up on the tables. Nancy also threw in some colored linens she had for our cake table and any other place we might need them. The bartender & security staff were great as well. They checked in with us to make sure everything was going well during the dinner.

The only problem we encountered was our missing chair covers. I asked the staff when the chair covers were going to be set up. This was about 2 hours before our reception started. I had paid for the chair covers 2 weeks prior. Note: the chair covers are not ordered through Bashful Butler but through a vendor they work with. It turns out that whomever was in charge of ordering the chair covers forgot to order them & she was now on vacation. At that point I didn't care much because there was nothing that could be done. I was just glad that the chairs being used were white and didn't really look out of place with the decor. It was also very comforting to be refunded the $ on the spot.

Overall a good experience!!!

Working with Nancy at the Bashful Butler was so easy. She helped me finalize the schedule with what would be easiest, what was normal, and what I wanted. The food was amazing. I'm still getting compliments two months later! Everybody I talked to said they went back for seconds or thirds! Yes, I did manage to eat during all the excitement and I have to say that I chose an excellent catering company. I've even had people ask for a referral!

(Married 9-1-12)My husband and I first booked this place in 2010 (we like to plan early to get the best deal) and worked with Nancy. Since we decided to have our wedding ceremony and reception at Hurst Ranch, we automatically had to turn to Bashful Butler for all of our catering needs (as they are the sole caterer for Hurst Ranch). Nancy was very friendly and played that caring mother role quite well and made us feel welcomed when we first met her.
For our food tasting, it was like the back door food tasting, where we had to go to one of their catered events and pick up our food. Now this is not your typical fancy food tasting where you go to the caterer and they bring out a few dishes for you to sample, but actually better. Why you ask? Well when you pick up your sample plate from an actual event the caterer works, then you would know how the food would actually taste like during your own event. Often times people find that the food at their event does not taste nearly as good as when they had it the first time at their food tasting (thus this tasting style being better). Anyways, we did not like the food we tried and requested to try something else, so Ryan (the person we ended up working with since Nancy was on the path of retirement) set us up with another food tasting.

Bashful Butler was pretty flexible, in which I had to add more guests to the guest count 10 days before the wedding (after I had already met with Ryan to finalize everything) and he had no problem adding
