    Fantastic wedding catering experience

    I recently used Fireside catering for my wedding of ~100 people in the fall of 2021, and have to say the entire experience was absolutely fantastic.

    Our point person through the entire engagement was Jessica Belanger. Jess did an excellent job working with us. She was extremely responsive, she listened and incorporated every last detail of our requests, she was extremely flexible when we were undecided about certain issues, and was an excellent coordinator during the day/month of the wedding. She brought a wealth of knowledge about catering and event planning, and gave us excellent advice when we needed it. When our wedding was delayed due COVID restrictions and lock down, they made every accommodation to work with us and we incurred no additional fees on the timeline changes. And lastly, Jess did an excellent job handling a particularly difficult venue coordinator. She worked well with everyone to ensure the setup and coordination went smoothly.

    One of the main reasons we booked Fireside was because we thought the quality of their catering was a notch above. We knew that their price point was a bit higher then others, but on the day of the event they delivered extremely well. The food was one of the highlights of our wedding, and nearly every guest we asked raved about the flavors, the freshness, and the quality of service. They specifically designated a staff member to follow us around the entire event with a our own private plate of appetizers to ensure that we got to eat every piece of our designed menu.

    On the day of the event, I couldn't tell you if a single thing even went awry. The entire staff was attentive, the coordinators were on top of everything, and I barely remember them asking me a single question. They handled everything, and everything went smoothly.

    I hope one day that I'll have another excuse to entertain 100+ people again, so that I could have the pleasure of working with Jess and the entire Fireside team once more.

    Fantastic Food

    Nom nom nom... Guys this food was so good. My husband and I consider eating a hobby so the food at our wedding was a priority. I was not about that life of being the bride that 'doesn't have time to eat'. The wait staff is incredible and the moment you finish the ceremony, you have a personal attendant with a tray of food just for you. Tiny tacos right after saying 'I do', I mean what more can a girl ask for!? In all seriousness, they were fantastic to work with and the food exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend a pre-ceremony snack (we did hot cider and donuts), and the bigger hit was chicken sliders after dessert! They are fantastic with dealing with allergies and kindly accommodated our friends that don't drink alcohol by placing cherries in the non-alcoholic flutes so they could still celebrate during toasts.

    Outstanding Food & Service!

    My husband and I have only great things to say about Fireside! They provided outstanding food and service at our October 3rd, 2021 wedding at The Crane Estate in Ipswich, MA. Though they are their exclusive caterer, we're so glad we didn't have any other options! Both the group tasting and food day-of were unparalleled. You often hear about amazing food during a tasting that flops at the wedding reception. This is not the case at Fireside. Maura McCarthy and her team provide a group tasting experience with all of the couples that are to be married at the Crane Estate during the year so the chefs are cooking for a large crowd. This helps you experience the seasonal menu as it would be served at your wedding. Everything is absolutely divine and we could not have asked for better food OR service. The day-of service was both attentive and efficient.

This group of talented caterers is one of our all time favorites we have ever worked with. Amy (the coordinator) is absolutely stellar to work with from a vendor standpoint. We LOVE the food and cannot wait until we cross paths at another event again. Heck, we may have to throw our own party just so we can see Amy again and eat some more of that delicious food!
