Professional, Caring, and Delicious

When my daughter picked a date for her wedding, my first call was to Mark Sewell to see if his Hill Country Ranch catering was available. Mark’s reputation over many years is impeccable, his professionalism is unmatched, and everyone loves his ability to meet your needs. Mark worked with us to develop each part of the menu, suggesting creative options we had not even considered. His calm, reassuring demeanor and attention to detail made what could have been a stressful process enjoyable and honestly a breeze. His connections to other event services with similarly stellar reputations were also so helpful to us during the planning process. Most importantly, the food and service were amazing for the big day!

Exceptional catering partner for a memorable wedding!

As a seasoned wedding coordinator, I have had the pleasure of collaborating with numerous catering companies, and Hill Country Ranch Dining & Tavern stands out as an exceptional partner in creating memorable events.

From the moment we engage with Hill Country Ranch, their dedication to understanding the unique vision of our clients is always evident. Their team takes the time to listen attentively to our preferences and offers insightful suggestions to elevate the culinary experience for our weddings.

The flavors are always tasty, the ingredients fresh, and the execution flawless. Whether it is a plated meal or a buffet service, each dish leaves a lasting impression on our guests, eliciting compliments and praise throughout the evening.

Their wedding cakes and dessert buffets are not to be topped! Each display is flawlessly created, beautiful and the most decadent out there. The gluten free options are amazing! Whether it is a full, gluten free/dairy free cake, dessert or cupcakes the gluten free options are plenty. They are very tasty and always garner the best compliments.

Moreover, the professionalism and attentiveness of the Hill Country Ranch staff are commendable. From the seamless coordination of service to the gracious hospitality extended to our guests, their team demonstrates a commitment to excellence that elevates the entire dining experience.
