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! "




Doornbos Wedding Reception At Eve

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!




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.




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!




Burciaga Wedding Reception At Baker Lofts

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!

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.

Your venue is gorgeous - the food is delicious - and your service is outstanding. We loved every part of this experience.

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.




VanWieren-Jones Wedding Reception

We received SO many compliments on the food, and I personally scarfed down my entire plate, it was so delicious! In addition, I really appreciate your attention to detail and all of our thorough planning meetings and many (many) e-mails. We really enjoyed working with both Kim and Luke. Kim, you had so many helpful planning tips and I very much appreciate you being direct and helping us stick to our budget. Luke, you were so professional yet still fun at the wedding. You handled the keg situation with tact. I was so shocked we ran out of the first keg during the cocktail hour! Our friends were having so much fun :) And I'm glad that Andy was able to pay the bill for the extra keg. It was great that you had us identify someone beforehand at our meeting on Thursday before the wedding because it made that decision a lot smoother the day of. The bartenders and staff were so helpful and gracious. It was so nice that someone was able to carry my plate for me through the buffet and to my table. We also appreciated the cake cutting and placing on the buffet table! Overall, our day was better than we even imagined and Gilmore Catering was a huge reason for that. Thank you so much!
