Nate Diedrich, Eclipse Awards

Thank you for all your help in making our Eclipse Awards event a success. Your attention to detail and excellent communication was very much appreciated.

Tanya Olson–Farmers Insurance

The room was amazing. The food and bar were perfect and absolutely nothing but compliments! I gave one team member your name to contact for her wedding planning efforts. She loved the space that much!

Deb Verbrugge, Scott Group Studio

The food was delicious, everyone was raving about the pot roast, green beans and the rolls. Our compliments to the chef! Charlie was great as were the staff that assisted in our event. As always, I can count on the Gilmore catering group to ensure that the event goes off without a hitch. Thank you again…. It was an amazing day and send off for our minister and everyone was able to enjoy the evening.

The staff did an excellent job accommodating last minute time changes. The food was delicious and the service was wonderful.

Thank you to everyone who helped make the Opening Sponsor Party a success! We appreciate and value our partnership with you.

Katie Corker, Association For Research In Personality Event

Delicious food served by pros! Have booked two large events (dinner for 120 and dinner for 250) and will book again. Easy to work with.

Raymond James

I would recommend Gilmore Catering to anyone. Everything went perfect—this was bar-none the best event we have ever hosted for our clients. Everything went off without a hitch and we were very impressed with the entire evening from atmosphere to food to service. We liked it so much we are booking our holiday party with you, too.

Nanette Clatterbuck, Lake Michigan Academy

The event went well! I was very impressed with the entire Gilmore crew. They were accommodating, friendly, and made the whole evening relaxing and enjoyable. Thanks to you and the staff!!! While I never got a chance to eat, I heard from a number of folks that the food was excellent! All in all, it was a great success (exceeded our fundraising goals!!!!) and we couldn't have done it without your help.

Mary Free Bed Riverbank Run Reception

Our event on Saturday was excellent!! The staff is superb. They were genuinely invested in our event and our guests, and it all went very well. The dry conditions resulted in our athletes finishing the race in record time and so many of them showed up early. Your cooks went into overdrive and managed to get our food out a half hour early and everything was delicious, as always. Thanks so much for your help and please thank everyone involved for making everyone feel so welcome. We hope to be back next year.


Excellent service, from the planning stage right through execution! The staff is wonderful to work with! :)

Keegan Aalderink, West Coast Chamber

The Gilmore Team is absolutely amazing! Kim & Charlie were phenomenal to work with and exceed all of our expectations. Their team served a plated lunch to 560 guests in 12 minutes! Thank you for making our event remarkable!

Lucy Bradshaw, Roselle Park Resource Building

Very positive experience overall. Good communication and recommendations. Timely delivery. Nicely laid out and tasty food. Thank you for the great service.

Connie VanBelzen Amway Event

The group told me the food was great! Thank you for working with me to arrange a fun night out for this group.

Etna Supply Luncheon

We had an incredible experience with The Gilmore Collection! The staff wanted to walk through our event space during the proposal process, which was a big reason why we chose to have them cater our event. They were very hands-on and excited at the possibility to cater. Communication before and during the event was amazing, and the food was just the icing on the cake! Everything tasted great and our customers loved the meal.

Michigan Council Of Human Resource Management

You all did a great job last night making our Michigan Council of Human Resource Management guests feel welcome. We received many compliments on the food throughout the night and attendees were still talking about the entire event at breakfast the next morning. I heard several attendees say, “It was the best MISHRM party ever.” Great night, excellent execution! Many thanks and kudos to all involved.

Jackie Flannery

It was great! I think it went really well and the food choices were fantastic. I think everyone was raving about that salad!

Stephanie Eklund, Priority Health

Thanks so much for your help in creating a wonderful reception for the executives and their guests. Everyone I spoke to thoroughly enjoyed the event and the set up looked beautiful from the pictures I have seen. Thanks again for always taking our events to the top!

Holland Young Professionals

Working with Kim Lemmen and her staff at Baker Lofts is a dream! They think of every detail and are extremely helpful from start to finish when planning and executing an event. We highly recommend them to anyone looking for an amazing caterer, planner, and event space along the lakeshore.
