    Best food and bartender

    Our guests were RAVING over the food and the drinks and let me tell you about the cheese crostinis (appetizer), they are so delicious. Sarah was who helpful through the process. She recommended we add mac & cheese and thank goodness she did because friends would not stop talking about how good it was.

    We didn't want classic BBQ but wanted it to look a little "fancier" on the plate so we chose sliced turkey and sliced brisket, both were delicious.

    Their pricing was MUCH more affordable than any other vendor I quoted. We paid for food, drink, garnishes at the bar, bartender, appetizers, chinaware, flatware, drinkware and paid as much as some other caterers cost for food alone!

    All in all, we LOVE 4R catering.

    The Best Catering in Florida

    I have never been to a wedding where guests were asking for third servings until ours (we hired 4Rivers and we are sure glad we did). I'll be honest, you probably wouldn't expect a BBQ joint to provide exceptional catering but, WOW did they exceed our wildest expectations. We knew the food would be amazing as we've been to several 4Rivers locations across Florida and it is always incredible. The service was spectacular the day of and the catering manager Sarah took care of us months beforehand and ensured the day was perfect. She is prompt, professional, and an amazing person. She made sure everything we needed was taken care of before and on our special day. We hired 4Rivers staff for both catering and bartending and they were truly amazing. No words can describe how thankful we are to have chosen them as our caterer!

    The Perfect Choice!

    We used 4Rivers for our wedding last month and could not have been happier! They have so many options to chose from, and their catering menu includes some special dishes that you cant order at the counter. Karen (the Catering Manager) spent so much time with us to make sure the menu and quantities were perfect, and she took our concerns as her top priority. The servers set everything up with no issues, were polite and helpful to our guests, and you could tell they really have fun with what they do. Every guest I spoke to that night complimented how great the food and service was. Thank you 4Rivers for being the perfect choice for our special day!
