    SO Wonderful!

    We LOVED Lake Elmo Catering!! All our guests told us the food was delicious. Our contact, Cheryl, was amazing and was the fastest communicator of any of our vendors. We set up a tasting, met the chef, even wanted to try some other items and came back for more. They cut our 4 tiered cake for us from a different venue. It's hard to know how to navigate a wedding, because most of the time, it'll be your first go around. Cheryl and the whole team at Lake Elmo Catering know their stuff, have great staff, and have a million different dinner/hors d'oeuvre/buffet/late night snack options.

    Lake Elmo Inn is top notch!!

    If you want exquisite food, fantastic service with a well informed, organized and friendly team, then this is your place! The compliments were endless for wedding in a tent with over 350 guests. They made each guest feel as though they were the only table of 8 in the place. Did I mention classy and professional? Nailed it!!
