We had our rehearsal dinner on Oct 7 at HOME at the BOB and it was amazing! The space was beautiful with romantic candles and elegant napkin/cutlery settings, the staff, especially the manager were wonderful! The food was phenomenal - we had a lot of guest travel to be to our wedding and I was so proud to bring them to such an amazing space. Also the office staff were great! Coordination and planning were executed very well. I would recommend this space and catering company to anyone hosting an event.
Thank you for making our wedding day so perfect. We loved Baker Lofts, the amazing food, and all the friendly staff we worked with—as did our guests. We were impressed with the friendliness of the Gilmore Catering staff at our reception and how smoothly everything ran. I hope we work with you again in the future; you are absolutely wonderful at what you do!
The food was excellent. Our guests raved about the omelets—in fact, many said they were the best they'd ever had. The belinis were delicious and the guests all raved about the passed appetizers.
My husband and I had our daughter’s wedding reception at Eve in The B.O.B. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this venue. Not only is it affordable, but they also offered a wonderful addition which most venues do not: Our event came with a dedicated manager by the name of Charlie Harmon. He was such a kind, compassionate professional and really the best at what he does. The food was amazing, and the best part of the evening was the ambiance. The way the room is designed to get people up and moving. We had the time of our lives!
I would definitely recommend Gilmore Catering to my family, friends, and colleagues. Your staff was very friendly and working with them was a pleasure. The food and service were also very good. I am very happy with the experience and will highly recommend you to others.
We had my daughter’s wedding reception at The B.O.B. in downtown Grand Rapids. After doing some online research, we found that the catering and event-planning services offered through Gilmore Catering and the price of a Friday wedding outmatched any of its competitors. From the first time we visited the venue until the moment we left after the reception, the service we received was excellent. Every time my daughter contacted you with any questions or changes, she received a prompt and helpful reply. We were also impressed by the quality of the food. I had so many guests tell me it was the best wedding food they had ever eaten. As the parents, we were expecting to have to do quite a bit at the reception, but Gilmore Catering’s staff took care of everything without our even noticing. Many of our guests have commented to us how professional your servers and bartenders were. I am telling everyone I know about how well we were treated and about the amazing quality of your venue, your staff, and your food and drink.
The day of the wedding was a very warm one and the ceremony took place in Dimnent Chapel, which is not air conditioned. When 250+ guests arrived at the reception, your staff was butlering beer and wine to assist the large number of thirsty people in line at the bar. They also brought drinks to the wedding party who were assembled downstairs before their entrance at the reception. Your staff was professional and very pleasant to work with. The meal, drinks, and wedding cake were served in a timely fashion to a very large group. Your staff handled it beautifully. Also, the pre-planning, taste testing, and final run through were well done. Any questions we had during the process were answered promptly.
We are extremely pleased with our choice of Gilmore Catering for our wedding day at Felt Mansion. Charlie Harmon, our event manager, is a master at what he does and the serving staff was friendly and knowledgeable. So many special touches like a server carrying my plate back to the table for me, one of the servers pulling out my grandmother’s chair for her, the team cleaning the chargers when that was not in their job description, and so much more. We received many compliments on the food and the service. I was also impressed with the pre-planning; Angela Shea worked so well with me as an adviser, kept me on a timeline, advised great food options and portions, and contributed greatly to the success of the day. I could not have imagined going with any other catering company for our wedding day.
Everything about our wedding reception in Saugatuck was amazing. I can’t begin to tell you how thrilled we were with everything. Kim Lemmen was fantastic to work with and Charlie Harmon was absolutely incredible. I was truly impressed, as were all of our guests; you made it seem effortless. And the food! Every single person that attended the wedding told me the food was fantastic.
Everyone loved the food at the wedding and the service was excellent—very attentive and polite. Really top of the line!
