What our customers are saying.


James Cannon Birthday Party

My wife and I held a private birthday party at Paddock Place. Molly, the manager, went above and beyond. She was absolutely an excellent host, and the staff attended to our every need with a smile on their faces. Not only was the food excellent, the space was beautiful and the place settings were tasteful. We highly recommend this place for private gatherings!




Joan Snyder Open House

Everyone was so kind and fun to have at our party. Food was delicious! I was completely relaxed at my own party!




Beaulieu-Briggs Wedding

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!




Holland Young Life

We wanted to thank you and your staff. The meal and service for our annual banquet were exceptional! We have had so many people tell us how much they enjoyed the meal, it was hot and delicious. We greatly appreciate your recommendations and expertise. We did not worry at all about the how the evening would go, because you knew what you needed to make the evening run smoothly in such a unique situation and space. Your staff was polite, efficient and so thorough. From my vantage point, in the back of the room, I could see all of them working diligently to deliver the dinner and continue to serve. Charlie was so kind too. I appreciated him checking in to be sure everything was going well and if there was anything we needed. I would also say they are all very stealth. :-) From replacing water to all the sudden they were out of the room when the speaker started if not before. All the sudden I realized they were gone! Top notch all the way around. The evening was a huge success and we thank you for being such an intricate part of the evening!




Carol Hoogerhyde Open House

Great event! The staff was wonderful. Thank you!




Alyssa Klaver Open House

Everything was great, from the initial planning stages through making decisions and final details, Madelyn was very helpful and kind. The event staff was awesome and did a great job, even staying much later than they were scheduled without complaining. So happy we chose this!




Giesken-Cook Wedding Reception

Our event manager, Laura, was wonderful. She made me feel completely confident and comfortable that everything would go seamlessly and that our guests would receive the utmost in quality service. There is no other catering service I could imagine recommending before Gilmore Catering. From the unique, gourmet dishes and flexible menu combinations to the detail-oriented planners and managers, and, of course, the attentive and friendly servers and catering staff, everything for our event was sheer perfection. I did not have to worry about anything regarding the catering on our wedding day because I knew we were in the best of hands. Our guests are still raving about it being the best meal they had ever been served at a wedding!




Janette Rehearsal Dinner

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.




Katie Johnson, Polo Club Event

So very well done as always. Great food, beautifully presented. The staff you sent were true professionals. Thank you




DeWeerd Wedding

We selected Baker Lofts in Holland, Michigan, for our daughter’s wedding and to just say it was an excellent experience does not do it justice. From the moment we booked the event, working with the Gilmore Catering team was a joy and completely stress free. This great experience was due in large part to Luke Miller—I am not one to write these reviews, but to not give him proper credit, along with the other staff members, the food, the bar, and overall experience, would be a terrible mistake. Anyone looking for a perfect venue needs to consider Baker Lofts. I have had people say it was the wedding of the year!




Simms Bar Mitzvah

Eve at The B.O.B. was an excellent venue for my son's Bar Mitzvah. Parking was easy given the business of the day and the atmosphere was warm and fun, and the waitstaff was phenomenal. They were attentive, responsive, and pleasant from beginning to end. Our event manager, was a true pro. She guided me through the big decisions and took care of the small details which made me feel very comfortable leaving our big day in her capable hands. I will definitely recommend Gilmore Catering to my friends and family!




Angus Campbell, Memorial Service

Very well done, great food and fantastic service at Paddock Place.




Gunnink Wedding Reception

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.




Faith Peterson, Michigan State University

Angela was great to work with -- she suggested a menu, and we made just a few changes. Being able to get the linens and tables from Gilmore made things simple -- one stop shopping! The food was excellent. The server was friendly, accommodating, and eager to do the work so we attendees could relax. Everything ran smoothly under Charlie's guidance -- thanks!
