    Excellent and Professional

    We hired J&L Catering for a wedding shower event, held at the Thayer House in Medway that included approximately 80 guests. We were pleased to learn that John and his team worked events there and was familiar with the property. When planning the meal for our guests, John provided some great dinner and dessert suggestions. We went with many of his recommendations and the meal he and his team prepared was excellent with healthy portions for everyone. The dinner also started at our scheduled time with no delays. Our guests were extremely happy with the food choices offered. During this entire process John was very professional, checked in with us often and made sure we and our guests would be happy. John is a joy to work with and I would recommend J&L Catering for your events.

    The perfect caterer

    We took our time looking for a caterer for our wedding. From the initial inquiry to the final execution, J+L Catering was absolutely the right decision. Jim, our coordinator, went above and beyond to make sure our special day was just that, special. J+L offers a delicious menu, quality rentals and impeccable service. We originally planned for 100 people and ended up with 22 (due to COVID) and J+L was more than accommodating and didn’t miss a beat. On the day of the wedding, everything was flawless. From the cocktail hour, to the reception and the clean-up, the J+L team was polite, respectful of space and professional. The food – we are still talking about it today – was very delicious. We opted for 5 different cocktail hors d'oeuvres and a three course mean (entrées of chicken, salmon, veg and kids). Everything was executed to perfection – temperatures were appropriate, and taste was flavorful. We will absolutely consider J+L for any additional catering needs in the future.
