What our customers are saying.


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.




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!




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! "

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!




Giesken-Cook Wedding Reception

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!




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! Emily and Zach




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!




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.
