Emily helped me make my menu for my wedding and the food is so awesome. My fiance and I met in Gainesville and we love eating at 4Rivers. They are also making our cake and cupcakes for the wedding. They were the most affordable catering that we found too!
Communication is a MAJOR issue with 4Rivers & the sweet shop. With my wedding around the corner, I have been trying to contact the Sweet Shop via email for over a month and have not received a response. I picked 4Rivers for our catering because we love their food and think it will be something unique. I'm hoping everything works out in the end but this company really needs to work on communication and customer service.
Emily was amazing! The food was delicious! Highly recommend 4Rivers! It was definitely worth every penny! Our guest didn't have one complaint! Eat as much as you can at your tasting, because on your day you won't have time to eat;)
4Rivers was hired for catering and bartending at my wedding. We provided our own alcohol, they served. They did a great job, and made my husband and I were taken care of us all night, sending us off with "to go" boxes and all! I was very happy with everything!
We used 4Rivers for our wedding and it was the best decision ever! The food was so amazing and our guests were very thankful that we didn't have traditional wedding food ;) There is nothing that could beat the quality of the food and the professionalism of the staff we had. We also used their bartending services (we provided all of the alcohol) and the bartender was great! He immediately made sure I had a drink after the entrance and I was incredibly thankful for that. The planning process was easy and they are fairly good at answering emails & phone calls quickly. Also, when you go to do your taste testing...go hungry :)
all of my guests loved the food (seriously, who wouldn't??) and the staff was amazing. I thought it was a great value; it was the lowest priced caterer I found, but I honestly feel like they have the best food too. It was a win/win!
4Rivers Smokehouse was amazing for our wedding! Not only was their food delicious, their staff were very friendly and professional. They had everything set up in a timely fashion, their bartender was great, and every person loved the food! The caterer manager I worked with, Kellie, was also very helpful and my husband and I greatly enjoyed the pre-tasting before the wedding. The staff made sure all leftovers were wrapped up and helped with the rest of the wedding clean up. I would definitely recommend 4Rivers Smokehouse to anyone and everyone because their food is DELICIOUS and their staff was GREAT!
Great food! Great service! So glad we picked them for food. One tip would be to overestimate the amount of meat you need because it gets eaten quickly because it is so good :)
OMG the food was so good! We are definitely regulars to begin with and it was a no brainer to have them cater the wedding. It was a huge hit. There weren't even left overs! Our guests devoured their food! We did a cake for us to cut and cupcakes for the guests. We were able to have choices for dinner for everyone and multiple cupcake flavors. We were able to bring alcohol to our venue and they even gave us a bar tender to serve it! Worked out just perfect. I would definitely recommend them for your wedding or any even at that matter :)
I had all of my food and desert catered through 4Rivers in Jacksonville. The food and service the night of was exceptional- nothing but compliments on the taste (though my cake did not replicate what I ordered) . My complaint however is that there was a great lack of communication. It would take several days and multiple phone calls/emails to get a response from Karen/Lindsey/Mike.
We used 4Rivers to cater our wedding and were able to choose menu items from both 4Rivers and The Coop. The price was very reasonable, the staff was professional, and the food was amazing! Everyone loved it!! The fried chicken, smashed potatoes, and GRAVY were our favorite. The banana pudding served in shot glasses was sooo delicious! We are so happy we chose 4Rivers for our wedding and would recommend them to anyone!
Not what we originally thought of as "wedding food" but soooooo much better than any other wedding we've ever been to! The prices were incredible, and 4Rivers worked with us to accommodate all of our requests. They helped set up and break down our event, served amazing food, bartended, and even made our signature cocktails perfectly. The staff was amazing, and we are so happy with our decision!
4Rivers catered our wedding, and everything was just as good as it is in the restaurant! All of our guests loved the food, and it was a really good value for the amount of food and the great service. We did mini cupcakes and a small cake to cut (red velvet and coconut) and it was so good! :)
Four Rivers was a perfect choice for our wedding. My husband and I wanted to make sure we were providing our guests with food they would actually enjoy & even though it was our largest wedding expense, it was worth every single penny!
Communication was done through two face to face visits as well as e-mail & phone calls. Kelli was our coordinator & she was wonderful throughout the whole process! She suggested various ideas for passed appetizers, as well as what a good variety of sides would be & how much food to order for 150 people (plus our vendors, which was great to be reminded of!) They were extremely flexible with our order & we were even able to add a few more vegetarian options a week before the wedding. The drink dispensers were even adorable and went right along with our "rustic/shabby/chic" theme.
We also used their bartender services since we were able to provide our own beer and wine at our venue. The bartenders were wonderful & great with communication. My husband was told at the beginning of the reception (as a heads up) that we may run out of alcohol in an hour or so. Even though that was one of our biggest fears, miraculously the bartenders were somehow able to make all of the alcohol last until the very end & none of the guests even noticed we were running low!
The entire staff was so friendly and accommodating. I joked with one of the servers that I would love to just eat a plate of Mac & Cheese and within a few minutes I got what I wanted. best.wedding.meal.ever.
You can't beat 4Rivers service! So professional, super affordable, and not to mention delicious! They were the perfect choice for our venue, The Acre. The staff is so friendly and do whatever they can to accommodate to your needs. I would recommend their catering to anyone in a heartbeat!!
4rivers provided our catering and cake, everything tasted amazing and our guests loved it. They made everything so easy and made sure we were ok upon their departure
