My Wife and I used West Michigan Caterer for our wedding. They provided the space, St. George Banquet in downtown Grand Rapids, the food, and the bar. Working with Andrea and Nick made the planning really smooth. They are extremely flexible with little changes here and there, they let you pick what ever you want served at the bar, and is 100% customized to what ever it is you want. The space for the event was gorgeous, with a large dance floor, plenty of room for everyone, including, DJ and Photobooth. The lighting behind the stage was just icing on the cake. The food went well above our expectations. All of our guests told us how wonderful the food was. The service was top notch. The bartenders worked so fast, the food was served almost instantaneously to every table. No one was waiting to be served. Everything was cleared up and cleaned up in time for dessert. Our reception could not have gone any better, and the planning could not have been any easier working with West Michigan Caterer.

My husband and I had our wedding catered by West Michigan Caterer. We opted for the buffet option and were very pleased with how the food tasted. It was delicious. The food was also warm and moist which were two things we were afraid they might not be as other reviewers mentioned that they had these problems. Andrea was a delight to work with. She was very professional and kind. She worked with us on getting some of the linens early so we could set up on Friday and answered all of my questions (which trust me, I had a lot) in a very timely fashion. They were flexible and went out of their way to satisfy our needs on more occasion than once. I was also told by several guests that they really enjoyed the food and the staff that served at the bar. The staff on the wedding day itself were friendly and professional. I appreciated that they were dressed in formal attire and were very attentive to my guests.Thank you for everything!

West Michigan caterer did our daughter's wedding reception at Saint George's Banquet hall. It was wonderful. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The food was fantastic. If you are looking for a place for your wedding reception Saint George's should be your first stop to check out. You won't have to look anywhere else. Between the hall, the food and their staff, our daughter's wedding reception was perfect. My husband and I were very pleased. It was really a night to remember.

Hats off to Mary and her staff at West Michigan Caterer for a job well done! They provided the food for our daughter' s wedding reception and we can't say enough good about them. Starting with the appetizers, table setting and dinner meal everything was excellent. We found the food quality to be superior and the pricing fair. We had plenty of positive feed back on the food from our guests. The staff was also, kind, courteous and professional. This was our first wedding, and we felt like we were in such capable hands with WMC. They really went the extra mile for us during a time filled with lots of details and did loads to relieve our stress. Use these people!

They especially enjoyed having the sundae bar as well as our wedding cake. The people who served the food at our reception were dressed well and were very polite.

I'm so glad we went with West Michigan Caterer! We had several people with food allergies and Bob did a great job of working around that. He also helped guide us to food that would be seasonal and appropriate for a late October wedding. The food was delicious. I believe there was one email that wasn't returned right away, but I got my question answer in a later email so it was no biggy.

I've worked with West Michigan Caterer for many work events and knew when I was planning my wedding that they were the caterer that I was going to use - I never even looked at other caterers. I worked with Bobby J to create my own custom menu and was more than pleased with the results. The peel and eat shrimp and the penne pasta alfredo were to die for, as were the bbq ribs with homemade sauce and chicken kabobs. There was no way any other caterer could have beat the price I paid per a person either - I received a great deal!! West Michigan Caterer also worked our bar and they did a great job. I highly recommend West Michigan Caterer.

We were very happy with them. They were nice to meet with and very flexible with the menu. We had really wanted salmon with a dill butter sauce. It wasn't on their menu, but they were happy to make it for us. We chose to have a split entree plated dinner: pork, salmon, risotto cakes, and asparagus. All of our guests were happy with the food. The staff was very professional and friendly. A few of them even went out of their way and got drinks from the bar for the wedding party. They are also reasonably priced. We would highly recommend this caterer.

Mary at WM Caterer was easy to work with. She responded to all my questions immediately. The food tasting was a good experience and made it easy to decide which food to offer. The chicken was juicy and delicious and the asparagus was amazing. The parmesan risotto was not as good as when we went for our tasting but we still ate it. Some people were confused if it was mashed potatoes or risotto. All in all it was an excellent meal and I saw people going up for seconds.

Bob and Mary did an awesome job at our wedding on 9-3-11! When Mike and I started working with Bob we wanted to do something unique and different for our wedding. We wanted to do food stations instead of your traditional sit down or buffet dinner. Bob helped Mike and I come up with a menu that was customized to your taste. We wanted a polish station with kielbasa, perogies, and sauerkraut. Our guest raved about this station! He also created a mash potato martini bar which was a huge hit! They also provided us with a late snack stations full of mini chill dogs and all the fixings! Our guest loved the food and were very impressed with the set of all the stations. Bob and his team also provided the bar services for our wedding as well and they did a great job. Considering our menu was customized the price was right! I would recommend Bob and his team to anyone in the West Michigan area that is planning a wedding or event! Thank you West Michigan Caterer for everything!

We went with a buffet and bar at West Michigan Caterer and were very pleased. The other reviewer is right about the bar, it is a wonderful deal compared to pricing at other vendors. But the main attraction really is the food. While the food was a bit cold at our taste testing (it was plated), everything was hot and perfect for our wedding. Our guests could not stop raving about how delicious both the pot roast and the chicken with pepper/mushroom sauce were! I heard an equal amount of compliments for both, so I couldn't even tell you which was the favorite.

I also love that WMC offers vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free meal options. A few of our guests are lactose-intolerant, so Mary even arranged to have dairy-free meals for those guests.

Everyone at WMC was wonderful to work with. Mary and Bob were very accommodating with our every question and need, and I was so impressed with the wait staff at the reception. Our head waitstaff brought drinks to the wedding party at the head table shortly after we arrived and even brought one of our guests a plate of tomatoes when he found out they loved them. You can't beat that service!

We chose West Michigan Caterer and we were very pleased with their services. We used them for our food (we did a buffet) as well as our bar. As far as the food goes, our guests raved about how great it was. The chicken marsala was amazing! The only problem we had was with the lady cutting the other choice which was the roast...she was slow and it slowed the buffet line down, so I wouldn't recommend having someone cut the meat...just have it already prepared. As far as the bar goes, they are a GREAT DEAL! They only charge you what you buy it at the store for and give you left overs (you still pay for a bartender fee/cups ect) but they were by far the best deal for the bar. Mary was also very attentive and paid attention to detail. She re-did my invoice like 5 times b/c I kept changing things. Very very responsive and friendly!! I would definitely recommend WMC!

The only problem we had was with the lady cutting the other choice which was the roast...she was slow and it slowed the buffet line down, so I wouldn't recommend having someone cut the meat...just have it already prepared. As far as the bar goes, they are a GREAT DEAL! They only charge you what you buy it at the store for and give you left overs (you still pay for a bartender fee/cups ect) but they were by far the best deal for the bar. Mary was also very attentive and paid attention to detail. She re-did my invoice like 5 times b/c I kept changing things. Very very responsive and friendly!! I would definitely recommend WMC!

They were willing to work with us when we were not quite sure if the food was what we expected. In the end we were very happy with the meal we chose and it tasted fabulous! All the meats were very moist and tasty. The appetizers were also a big hit. The only suggestion we would have is finding a way to be able to sample more of the menu items at the tasting. Two or three is not quite enough so we ended up going back a couple times. The staff was very kind and overall we were very impressed and pleased.

We were pleased with the buffet, plated appetizers and late-night sandwich snacks we received from West Michigan Caterers. I was a little dismayed to see that my vendors were added in to my per person total (I did give them permission to eat at the reception but didn't realize I'd be paying by the head for them too - I should have asked more clearly up front). The food was tasty and they were very willing to work with us to offer our guests exactly the menu we wanted. Note: their crab cakes, spring rolls and beef skewers are TO DIE FOR!!! They were the tastiest things we had all night, and the other food was nothing to snub your nose at. I recommend this vendor for sure.

Overall, WMC was great. The food was delicious and they were very helpful and responsive while we were in our planning stages. It did seem like they were trying to nickle and dime us a bit - ie cake cutting fee, .50 charge per napkin, and the charge per linen was way too high. I think this is something you'd most likely find with any catering service, though.

We did our own napkins, linens, and cake stuff, and that saved some money. So just look over everything carefully and see where you can save some money. But again, the food was wonderful and besides one staff member who was rude to one of my groomsmen, the staff was very friendly and professional.

West Michigan Catering did a good job with my wedding. Though, I didn't have a choice as my venue had a contract with them which sort of rubbed me the wrong way. The first person I dealt with would never email me back and would not be flexible on our tasting time (we live in Chicago and it was VERY tough to book a tasting since we weren't willing to take time off work). I understand that weekend tastings can be tough on caterers, but find a way to be more flexible, I'm sure we're not the only out of town clients they've dealt with. Once we made our selections and paid the deposit, the second person we dealt with was extremely helpful, always emailed me back right away and worked within my budget.

We were not thrilled with the food we had at our tasting, so went into the wedding night with low expectations but were pleasantly surprised with the result!

One last thing, I was approached (mind you, I was the bride) and asked for the remainder of the money we owed. My mom had the check and we paid them on the spot, but my parents were NOT happy that they were chasing me down asking for money. Couldn't they have billed or ran my credit card for the rest? Anyway, only a small detail.

Like I said, I don't have anyone else to compare them to b/c we didn't have a choice in caterer, but they did a good job.

Overall I liked this vendor but I was limited to a choice of 3 caterers at my reception site and WMC was the best of the three. If I was not limited then I may not have chosen/recommend them. The appetizers were very good and we had lots of compliments on them. The servers refilled water in an efficient manner. Their bar set-up was not very professional looking - just a table with a black table cloth with the drinks on top (kinda like at a high school dance, but with liquor). I like that their dinner options come with two proteins - many other caterers in GR do not offer that. The dinner was good but not what I had tried at the consultation. At the consultation we tried several options and went with the trotter steak and salmon en croute - when we tried it the salmon en croute was small, in puff pastry as it should be, and had havarti cheese and tomatoes. At the wedding the entre came out and it was a huge piece of salmon, no havarti or tomatoes, and wrapped in soggy pie pastry. I had made menus for each place setting and felt like a fool calling this big mess "salmon en croute." They were very fast and efficient when it came to cake cutting and did not charge extra to cut everyone two pieces of cake and put the second piece in a take-home box for each guest.

The pork loin was dry (over cooked) & cold and the chicken was slightly warm & my table was the first to go through the line (immediate family) - great taste, just not hot enough - The mashed potatoes were hot-hot-hot....Excellent. Unfortunately I will be reaching out to the company first thing next week. Way to costly - We should expect perfection with the temp of the main dishes - keeping food hot should NOT have been a concern. I will recommend their service - Very nice staff, but just check the temp of the food before you allow the guests to go through the line....Food thermometer - toss one in your purse?

My husband and I used West Michigan Catering for our wedding reception. We enjoyed working with them during the tasting, and choose them because of their food. However, the table clothes provided had stains on them and were wrinkled. When West Michigan Catering was told about the table cloths (1 day before the event), they were rude and did not apologize. Feedback from the guests was that the food was delicious, but it was not hot. The service was fair, some guests commented that they were rude. The food was good, but we would not recommend them to anyone.

Before I started planning my reception I had heard nothing but raving reviews about West Michigan Caterers (WMC), so I wasn't afraid to pick my venue which only used WMC. They were very helpful up until the day of my wedding. I'm convinced the staff could not have cared less about the fact that they were catering a wedding reception.

I will admit that the food was great for the most part, but I had asked for green beans and they were tough, chewy, and disgusting; the green beans were nothing like what we had tasted when we picked out our meal. Almost every guest I talked to said the green beans were horrible, but the chicken and potatoes were good.

As for the catering staff, they were worse than the green beans. My husband and I didn't even get to eat a piece of our wedding cake because the staff threw it away after I had specifically told them not to touch anything that was left at the head table. Guest were complaining left and right about how blatantly they were being ripped off at the bar because every time they would leave their drink to go dance it would be thrown away. They disregarded my instructions for my cake table and didn't even bother to sort the flavors despite the fact that I had given that a detailed list of which layers were which flavors; I had even marked where they were supposed to go on the table. The catering staff just left those ugly round serving trays sitting on the cake table instead of taking the time to remove the cake from the tray. Finally, my sister caught the staff throwing away my wedding favors. I had guest asking where their favor had gone.

I cannot believe that my parents paid what they did for this caterer. You would think that for the price WMC could hire a more professional and caring staff.
