Casorena Wedding Reception

Everyone loved the food at the wedding and the service was excellent—very attentive and polite. Really top of the line!




VanderPlas-Hoekstra Wedding At Felt Mansion

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.




Gunnink Wedding Reception At The B.O.B.

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.




Tiesenga-Rozema Wedding Reception

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.




Beaulieu-Briggs Wedding At Baker Lofts

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!




Petersen-VanderBent Wedding Reception At The B.O.B.

I totally recommend The B.O.B.—it is the best kept secret in Grand Rapids for a downtown wedding reception venue. The Gilmore Catering menus were extremely reasonable and it was great to have so many options to add or subtract for main entrees, appetizers, and desserts. If you could put me on your rooftop I would willingly shout out “The B.O.B. is the best wedding reception venue with great value! "




Tobey-Golub Wedding Reception

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.




10-07-16 Janette's 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.




Simms Bar Mitzvah

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!




DeWeerd Wedding At Baker Lofts

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!
