So many compliments on our bar!
We used Distinctive for our bar service. Madeline from sales was extremely responsive. Reasonably priced for open bar. Service was great, bartenders were friendly. Tip jars were requested not to be out so our guests didn't feel obligated to tip, and we would tip ourselves. They were out. Our guests didn't seem to care and this is a common practice in our area. By the time I realized it, I figured it didn't matter. We paid for glassware through dinner. Our venue required plastic after dinner. We were the first to be served dinner. The bartender came and asked us for our drink orders (so thoughtful and appreciated), but she gave us plastic. So really glassware was only though cocktail hour. Not a huge deal, but I assumed we would be served glassware until dinner was over and dancing started. All in all nothing major, great service, and I'd hire again.Sent on 11/04/2019

Worked with Distinctive Catering on New Year's Eve for a wedding at Butternut Event Centre by Lakeshore Events in Holland. They were very professional, the guests loved the food and they left my catering kitchen spotless. Additionally, they provided meals for my staff, the photographer and DJ ~ Delicious. Well done! Distinctive Catering is now one of our preferred caterers!
Have had several great encounters with Brann's. They do a wonderful job. Greg Bugbee Owner- Bugbee's DJ Plus
