What our customers are saying.


Taber Wedding Reception

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.

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.




Jackie Schemmel: Wedding Reception

The service was absolutely amazing. Worked with Angela and Charlie (on the day of the event). Angela was prompt in responses and always willing to work with us or answer any questions we had. Made the entire process effortless. Charlie on the day of the wedding was very sweet and willing to work with us and make any same day adjustments that occurred.




Cronin-Blossom Wedding Reception

We were very pleased with your staff and especially Charlie. The day and evening was close to perfection, we could not have been happier. Still cleaning up after the big party, we are all reflecting on a wonderful wedding. I received a multitude of compliments on the catering staff and more on the food! It was delicious, no exaggeration.

YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!!!! I cannot begin to express our heartfelt thanks for an amazing experience with Baker Lofts Events. Your venue is gorgeous - the food is delicious - and your service is outstanding. We loved every part of this experience. I cannot tell you how many people told us that the food was the best food they have ever had at a wedding. There were so many people, as well, who had never heard of this venue, and everyone truly loved it!  AND - The set up was AMAZING!!!!! Thank you, so much, for taking the time to make things absolutely perfect. Luke, you were great to work with Friday night. You were so accommodating and had absolutely everything under control. Your professionalism is so appreciated, and I just have to say that it really was outstanding.Each of you helped make this day absolutely perfect.

Wedding Reception - September 2018

Fantastic Food! Do yourself a favor and get the smoked pork shoulder, it was tender, flavorful and a crowd favorite. They were very accommodating to dietary restrictions of my wife and our guests, they were incredibly happy with their food (Celiacs, Vegans, Vegetarians, and various food allergies). Charlie was our day of coordinator and was a consummate professional: always there when you needed him but never in the way. I cannot speak highly enough of the staff, food, or experience.




Ben & Lindsay Wedding

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!
