    I can't say enough about how happy I am with the decision to use Cantwell's for our catering. Patty was fantastic at communicating and answering all of questions quickly. I felt completely at ease knowing that everything would be taken care of and that she would ensure that everything was set up how we wanted. My guests all raved at how great all of the food was and we got tons of compliments on the venue- the Corbit-Sharp house and historic bank building. All of the servers and the bartenders were great and friendly as well. I have absolutely no complaints. I feel we got an amazing value for the price and would absolutely recommend Cantwell's.

    My daughter had ceremony and wedding reception at Cantwell's Tavern it as the best decision we made. The garden was so beautiful for the ceremony. Patty was very helpful for any question that we had. The reception was also great they had it all set up just like we wanted it and everyone was saying how delicious the food was. The staff was always there when we needed anything. I would recommend Cantwell's Tavern to everyone.
