Bar Harbor Catering was perfect for our wedding
Bar Harbor Catering was a dream to work with for our wedding. From initial contact, to tasting, to day of services they were extremely professional and supportive.Sent on 07/02/2019
We used BHC for the wedding catering and ‘month of’ coordinator. Both were excellent in helping us get the wedding that we were hoping for. For reference we were a relatively small wedding at ~60 guests.
Catering: BHC helped us craft an entirely vegan wedding day menu. This included table snacks, grazing menu, and entrees. All were excellent and we’ve had many compliments to the food. The food was one of our biggest concerns and they executed flawlessly. For drinks we went with beer wine + a signature cocktail which were also served without issue.
Note: They were able to accommodate several additional dietary restrictions without issue and went out of their way to identify and take care of these guests.
Planning: Heather assisted with our planning and she has clearly built relationships in the community as she was able to liaise with the flower and tent/table/chair vendors. Day of she was very attentive and made sure that we were able to focus on the ceremony and our families rather than the details of the day.
Overall, I can recommend BHC without reservation. They delivered beyond our expectations in every category. We’re very lucky to have found them.

Wedding Planner Impressed
Just wanted to give a big shout out to Bar Harbor Catering Company! I am a wedding planner (fern & flair weddings and events) and worked on my first wedding with them this past weekend. Meg was leading the event and did a fantastic job. Meg and the whole team were on top of everything. Helping put the final details together and fulfilling all of the wedding party and my requests. There is not one critique I would have for them. The performance and service seemed flawless. Not to mention the food was amazing. All the guests loved it including the vendors. Definitely one of the most professional companies I have had the opportunity to work with. They really went above and beyond going out of their way to add special service like bringing plates of appetizers on the trolley for the wedding party who had to go off to photos during cocktail hour. So thoughtful! Great job guys! Hope to work with you again in the near future!Sent on 08/13/2019

Experienced professionals, and wonderful to work with
We had a unique situation where another catering company we had lined up fell through a month before our wedding date. Stressful to say the least. Thankfully, Mandy and her team from Bar Harbor Catering Company were still available, and they more than delivered, helping us create the type of menu we wanted, and even threw in some thoughtful surprise touches. They clearly aim to please, and they did. The food was flavorful, sophisticated, and cooked to perfection. They elevated seemingly simple sounding dishes to a fine dining experience. The service was outstanding, too -- the servers Mandy hires are all professional and they did a really outstanding job and helped facilitate the flow of our reception, allowing us and our guests to enjoy the evening. Our guests were raving about several of the dishes, and wanted recipes (particularly the carrots!). We are actually grateful our first caterer fell through, so we could have Bar Harbor Catering Co. instead!Sent on 11/25/2018
