We booked Branches for their venue and catering in West Long Branch. I need to start off my review with saying that Monica and Robbie literally saved our wedding day. We had some hiccups along the way but once I had my new all star team with Monica and Robbie - they really pulled out all the stops to make the day perfect. I'm not sure how he pulled it off but Robbie promised me no rain and was able to pull in a favor with the weather gods to make sure it was a beautiful day. Their team was super attentive to our needs all night long. The food... serious hats off to the chef! I have never been to a wedding where people complimented the food so much. Two weeks later and people are still talking about it. Unintentionally the floorplan had a few high top tables in the bar area and guests complimented how there was so much space for the children at our wedding to run around in that area and play without getting in the way of the other guests (highly recommend this for others with kids at their wedding!) It made me as the bride so happy to know my guests were so happy. I wish I had the chance to work with Monica from the beginning because she has the right amount of sass to keep up with me and has this presence to put all your nervous energy aside and keeping you smiling. Call her and BOOK HER!

Michael and I are elated that we chose Branches as our wedding venue! When you first drive up the venue doesn’t look that big, but once you’re inside the sprawling ranch flow is unique and welcomed! The space is clean, and odor free with different areas for smoking placed strategically around the outside of the building. All my guests RAVED about the food and drinks. Monica set up my different DIY projects so well that people were complimenting the venue on them… thinking it was their props! Everyone had plenty of space to sit and mingle, and they even had some cornstalks and pumpkins to add to my rustic theme. Joe, our Maître D, was AMAZING; he kept the liquor coming and made sure that my husband, our parents, and me never had a want or care the whole night. Overall, we had an interesting journey with Branches, but we wouldn’t change it for the world! We originally booked our wedding venue in 2015 with Holly. Our wedding date was 10/07/2017; clearly, we had some time before we had to plan anything. From when we booked, we worked with Holly, Mayra, and then Monica. Now most brides would consider that problematic, but it wasn’t! Holly set up the groundwork, Mayra met with me in late 2016 to introduce herself, and to fill in the timeline of when they needed the little nuance details. When Mayra went on maternity leave, she left me in Monica’s capable hands. Monica met with us a week before to go over the final preparation of the day, we met Joe, and we were able to drop off a majority of our supplies. She then met with my mom and I the Thursday before to allow us to finish prepping the centerpieces. On my wedding day itself Branches was transformed!! I know it sounds cliché… but I consider the whole group of them extended family. The next day, we were even invited back for a Beer Garden Brunch! Thank you all SO much for assisting in making our dream wedding come true! We promise to come back and visit and will forever highly recommend you!

There was a bump in the road concerning my date but overall we had a good experience and I would recommend
Branches. The food is ah-mazing! Mayra and her team were very accommodating and helpful. I would not have been able to do it without them.

Conveniently located by the shore.. Branches has a true artistic feel when finding the perfect location for those newlywed photos. Their gourmet display and unbeatable service is a must for your reception. They’re very accommodating and you're guaranteed a positive environment from start to finish.

You can't do better than having Branches Catering cater your event. We have seen them in action at Laurita Winery as well as some weddings and we were impressed by the food, the staff and the service.

ONE OF MY FAVORITE VENUES TO WORK AT FOOD AND STAFF ARE INCREDIBLE

John and his team are truly amazing...

I love this place! Thats why I had my own wedding here!
