Pipers Premier Caterers
They were great up until the wedding night. They said they would make us a to go bag of some of the left over food- that never happened. They misplaced the silver platter the cake vendor let us rent. The event planner left right after the dinner was served when she told us she would be there all night. The also charged $2 for a soft drink but unless it was in your hand you only got two drink out of it because the kept taking them.
We were very pleased with the service at Pipers. They went above and beyond to make our reception perfect. The centerpieces were the idea of Anna at Pipers and they were so unique and perfect! The food was delicious and we had so many compliments about it!
ABSOLUTELY PERFECT! is the best way to describe our wedding reception at Pipers
Grand Manor on October 10,2009. To start with the venue itself looked absolutely
beautiful. Pipers worked with us and allowed us to bring in some of our own decorations and we used some of theirs and the room ended up looking absolutely
gorgeous. All night long we had numerous people tell us that it was the most beautiful wedding and reception that they had every been too. We have received
notes from guests in the mail stating that they could tell the entire event was done
with love and attention to detail. As ALWAYS the food was great, we had a 2 meat buffet every thing was cooked perfectly, served hot the buffett was always kept full and all of the guests had more than plenty to eat. Everyone wanted more rolls! They are fantastic if you've never tried them before you must. The staff was
attentive to all of our needs both before, during and after the wedding. They told us not to worry about any thing and that's exactly what we were able to do, we didn't worry about a thing. As far as the flow of the evening Anna kept us on track and the pre arranged time line was adheared to, she kept things right on time. The only thing we could have asked for was that the evening didn't fly by as quickly as it did, we'd like to go back and do it all over again. We'll have another wedding in the future and Pipers Grand Manor will certainly be our venue of choice.
Unfortunately, we had a somewhat bad experience with Piper's. I would like to start by saying that Anna, the event coordinator, is fabulous. The room was absolutely beautiful and she did a great job with the decorations for the reception. The food was great, and the waitstaff was really on top of things. The problem that we had was once Anna left that evening and left someone else in charge. I had talked extensively with Anna about what would happen if people wanted seconds from the buffet. The original plates were put at the place settings on the table. Anna assured me that there would be a stack of plates put on the buffet after everyone went through once, and that there would be a last call for food before the buffet was broken down. Since we were doing a buffet, we wanted to be sure that everyone had enough to eat. Unfortunately, the plates were never put out, and the buffet was taken down before we even cut the cake (which we did as soon as the groom and I finished eating). Most people never had a chance to go back for seconds if they wanted to, and if they did, they had to take a dirty plate. My dad called and talked to the owner about it after the reception, and he was very rude on the phone. He never once appologized, and his response was that his daughter (who had been left in charge) thought everyone had had enough to eat. When a reception costs $8,000 I don't think that the owners daughter should get to decide when everyone has had enough to eat. The fact is, they knew they would save money by taking the buffet away earlier. It was unfortunate that such a beautiful evening turned out to be such a mess because the owner of the establishment was less than professional. I would highly recommend Anna to anyone, but I think she needs to find a job elsewhere. I would definately NOT recommend Piper's. I don't want anyone else to have there big day ruined.
The space is beautiful and will fit 150-175 guests attending comfortably. The food was fantastic and my guests wanted more...especially the Teacup bread!!
Excellent food. Excellent customer service. Very happy with services provided.
The food is DELICIOUS! They just opened a new restaurant on Southport and 37 where you can taste for yourself. Reasonable pricing for such amazing food!
