What our customers are saying.


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!




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.




Myers-Billin Wedding Reception

Gilmore Catering is awesome! Your professionalism was impressive, the food was absolutely delicious, and the follow-through on the day of the event was complete. We could not have been happier with everything. You made our wedding reception a huge success—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!




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!




Casorena Wedding Reception

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




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!




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.




Heltsmith Wedding Reception In Saugatuck

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.




Hansen-Humphrey Wedding Reception At Eve

Our guests are still talking about what a wonderful experience they had at our wedding reception at Eve at The B.O.B. We can't thank you enough for all of the hard work you put in to making our day so special. Everything was absolutely perfect at our reception; we had such a wonderful time! Your team made every step—from booking the reception to making our last minute changes—easy. We had no worries or concerns because we knew that your team would take care of everything. You amazed us and our guests with your attention to detail and flawless execution. Please know that we are already recommending Gilmore Catering to everyone and we do so gladly!
