    Delicious BBQ!

    We love 4Rivers and were so excited to have them cater our wedding reception. The food was delicious, and we had so many guests comment that this was the best wedding food they'd ever had. We had BBQ, but there are so many good options to choose from on their menus. They were so easy to work with and flexible as we solidified our guest count. 4Rivers is a preferred vendor at the Ever After Farms Blueberry Barn, and it was nice that they knew where to set up and how to operate. We would absolutely recommend 4Rivers catering any event you're having!

    Perfect for our wedding!

    4Rivers was one of the vendor options for my venue, and was one of the most recommended by our wedding coordinator. They were always very responsive and sent us a ton of updated proposals as we moved through planning. I loved that even though they're a smokehouse, they still offered great vegetarian and vegan options. The brisket and pulled pork were amazing, and we heard great reviews from our vegan guests too! They had the burnt ends. One of them worked in the wedding business and said that the food was some of the best they've had. We decided to have 4Rivers provide the cake, linens, and some china as well, which was perfect. I couldn't have been happier about booking them!
