Perfect Evening!

We've loved and frequented Brother John's Beer Bourbon and BBQ for years for lunch and dinner. When we were planning our wedding celebration dinner it was a no brainer. We wanted a simple but elegant event to celebrate. We hired Brother John's initially thinking to reserve their banquet hall but since it wasn't available we reserved The Rubi House venue instead. The Rubi House truly fit what we wanted and Brother John's menu was perfect. Their attention to detail and ability to have contingency plans ready for weather issues was excellent! They provided a detailed invoice which made it really easy to see the price breakdown. We wanted a buffet style considering our guests/timing and they were happy to accommodate. The venue was gorgeous, food was delicious, and staff were amazing! They made our special day relaxing, memorable, and wonderful! If you are planning an event these are the folks to choose! If we ever want a catered event again we will choose Brother John's.

Highlight of the night!

What an absolute feast. We decided on something out of the ordinary and boy did the BBQ work perfectly. Working with the team was easy and they did everything they promised and more. I can say that the food was the biggest hit for every single guest. The bartender helped kept everyone happy and she was extremely lovely. Don't hesitate with these guys. Best meal I've ever had and I get to visit them with my husband to relive the wedding night. Thanks team!

Perfect Wedding

Everything was very nice and organized the only thing that I would change is that I which they would told me there was a lot of food left and I would take it with me instead of throwing it away. That makes me really sad
