    Delicious food

    Our wedding was catered by Grandpa's. We got the ultimate party pack. The slow-roasted pork and BBQ pulled chicken was fall-apart-tender, and we got sauerkraut to go with it. This kind of food is good for catering because it gets better the longer you cook it. You can get as many kinds of BBQ sauce as you want. My personal favorite was the apple one. The mac and cheese and mashed potatoes had a slightly smoky flavor to them that went really well with the meats. Their antipasto and bruschetta appetizers were quite good as well. In the end, they packaged us up a bunch of food to go --- we had a lot of amazing leftovers.

    That day it was raining and we were under a park pavilion. Grandpa's set up no problem. They had a tent to put over their buffet table, and their truck set-up was also covered. It looked like a fair when you went down to the pavilion with the tent and the truck. Everyone was courteous, professional, and flexible. They arrived with plenty of time to set up, were able to start dinner service a little earlier than expected, and the bartender was a delight.

    They also cut our wedding cake so we didn't have to worry about that part. We got their homemade ice cream to go with it, which they make using a John Deere tractor. It actually is really fun to watch, and the ice cream tastes good.

    Overall I would highly recommend Grandpa's.

    Grandpa's Country Catering never disappoints!

    I am an event planner and have used Grandpa's services on more than one occasion. Most recently, I hired them to cater my sister's wedding. During dinner she leaned over to me and said this was the best wedding food she had ever had! I had a lot on my plate as the Maid of Honor and event planner, but Grandpa's made the catering easy and one less thing I had to worry about. I trusted them with my sister's wedding and would not hesitate to recommend them again!

    Their staff is prompt, friendly, and always professional. Their food is delicious and extremely well priced. Whether it be a business lunch, steak and lobster dinner, or catering for wedding, you can't get better than Grandpa's!

    Great service & great food

    Grandpa's country catering was everything we could have wanted for our barn wedding. They were great to work with and answered questions quickly. The food was wonderful! We had a great sample of the menu, which all of their food was yummy. On the day of the wedding, the servers were so kind, respectful and accommodated us being behind schedule. There was so much food. It was definitely worth their price. There was even leftovers, which they cleaned up too. We would highly recommend them.

    Grandpa's Country Catering's reply:

    Thank you so much for your kind words. I will convey to our staff! If we can be of any assistance in the future, please give us a call!
    Best wishes!
