We used Distinctive Catering for both our catering and bar needs. As an out-of-state bride, I appreciated the responsiveness to my emails and flexibility in me asking for multiple quotes so I could compare my options. I worked with Lindsey to have my MOH & mom attend a tasting event since I couldn't be there. Which was awesome and very helpful! Everyone loved the food (people raved about the salmon!) and our guests said the bartenders were fabulous. We had plated meals - everything came out hot, delicious and timely. Servers were attentive to all our guests needs during dinner and did a wonderful job clearing plates as people finished their meals. Would 10/10 recommendSent on 10/10/2018

We have absolutely no complaints! Distinctive handled our son's reception with professionalism and great service. We appreciated their eye for detail and the way they presented themselves. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again.Sent on 09/25/2018

The food was so delicious and we got rave reviews from our guests about the bar tender. She remembered people's drinks and even got the wedding party drinks during dinner since we missed cocktail hour. Amazing service!Sent on 08/19/2018
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!
