I recommend Gilmore Catering to all my friends and family in a heartbeat! The entire staff made our wedding day so special and we had absolutely nothing to worry about. They were a joy to work with.
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!
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!
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.
We loved our wedding reception at Baker Lofts. It was like a dream and better than I ever imagined. The service was phenomenal, the food amazing, and the venue beautiful. I know you gave us the deal of a life time and worked within budget. I still can't believe how everything worked out for us. It was the west wedding food I’ve ever had. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Our event manager, Laura Scholten, 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!
Eve at The B.O.B. was an excellent venue for my son's Bar Mitzvah. Parking was easy given the busyness 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. Jessica Bernia, 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!
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.
Gilmore Catering has a reputation for being the best which is why we use them anytime we need a caterer. So when it was time to plan my wedding, it was a no-brainer that they would be handling our reception. The whole team is so easy to work with and they bent over backwards to make sure everything was amazing for our special day. Even when issues with the menu or venue policies arose, the necessary adjustments were quickly made without additional costs to us. The one thing you know for sure when hire them is the meal will be great! From the initial planning of the event to the servers at the reception, everyone associated with Gilmore Catering made it their personal mission to ensure that my wedding day was perfect. If you are having an event in Grand Rapids or West Michigan and don't hire them, you’re crazy!
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.
