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!

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!!

4 Rivers is notorious for being amazing. They did not disappoint at our wedding. I normally don't like "catered" wedding food. So this was something reliable, and affordable that all of our guests enjoyed. Our coordinator was willing to work with us on our budget and provide helpful suggestions to ensure we had plenty of food, and a menu which we knew everyone would enjoy. I appreciated their flexibility and they were all very professional. Great job.

We chose 4Rivers for our wedding caterer and the Sweet Shop made our wedding cakes. Great pricing and amazing food (we loved the restaurant long before we got married). I worked with Kelli and I was planning everything from 1.5 hours away from Orlando, so we only met a few times and e-mailed the other times. They are very accommodating and have many different options available for food, cake, etc. A few of my complaints were: 1- E-mail responses were not very timely; 2- The cake was cut, but not served, which was inconvenient for our guests and a miscommunication somehow; 3- Too many changes were made last minute due to lack of communication on their part, which stressed me out a lot towards the last week before the wedding. Otherwise, our guests raved about the food and cake and we were able to take left-over foods and eat them the next day. They do serve beer and wine too which was perfect for our wedding since we had only 50% of our guests that drink and liquor is too expensive. Overall, great caterer and delicious food. Just make sure you keep track of everything yourself and double confirm so there are no miscommunications.

Had them cater a private residence wedding under tent in backyard. The service was great! Ask for Emily Justice, Kelly Errico, David Hancock... they are all great at coordinating. They came out for a house visit to see the set up of home and reception site. Easy to talk to and very flexible with adjusting menu/scheduling times. Very good food! Guests loved the southern style buffet we had from them! Will use again if throwing a large party that requires catering :)

I ordered a small two layer cake and several dozen cupcakes. They were so delicious and I loved the service I received on the tasting and the design of the cake. I would absolutely recommend them to everyone wanting cupcakes.

4Rivers not only did our rehearsal dinner catering (BEST BARBEQUE IN THE WORLD!), but the Sweet Shop also made our wedding cake! It was absolutely delicious and just what we wanted!

Because I now live out of central FL, I relied on email and phone to organize everything. Everything the day of was AMAZING. We ordered pulled pork, chicken, burnt ends, mac and cheese, and smokehouse corn.
The food was great, as if fresh from the restaurant window and the service was more than helpful! We greatly appreciated the help with cleanup and the staff stayed longer than we expected to help out. I know how hard it is to find the bride and groom as they are zipping around during a wedding but the staff made sure to check in with us at various points to ensure everything was going well. 4R is already one of our favorite places in Orlando but we can now confidently recommend it for events too. Guests enjoyed everything and we were happy with everything.

Not what I expected... things that were promised were not delivered. The food was great as usual and the two girls out of the 4 that were supoed to be there were great. They worked so hard to try to make up for everything... Water was never brought along with ice. There should have been 2 food lines but we ended up with only one. The Mac-n-cheese was not the same as what we had at our tasting... I love 4rivers... not sure what happend. We never recieved any kind of compensation for things that were not provided. Our catering manager was very hard to get a hold of... some of the updated contracts seemed as though we had nver met... As far as catering for a wedding... they need to step up their game.
