About Lantern Catering

With our unique and custom wedding menus, the possibilities are endless.

Hi!  Rick and I started up Lantern Catering in 2009 just 6 months after we tied the knot.  As a husband and wife team, we love to help couples have the wedding of their dreams.  We personally believe that food is one of the top items that makes a wedding standout.  We spend time getting to know our clients and what they envision for their big day and we custom create menus to fit their dream and budget.  No longer are you limited by a menu that you have to pick menu items from, the possibilities are endless with Lantern Catering!  We truly love what we do and it shows in the quality of our food.

Lantern Catering was my food provider and servers for a fund raising event of 150 people. They worked their way thru the auction very nicely. The serve was prompt, good food, and so easy to work with in preplanning. Chef Rick Green did a table side dessert that sold for $450.00. Nice job Lantern! I would use again definitely.

Rick and Nora were amazing to work with ! We used Lantern Catering for our wedding, and the whole process was flawless. Nora was so quick to respond, and was so helpful with any questions or concerns I had. When we went in for our tasting, we originally went in thinking we wanted to do the basic buffet style, so that was what Rick prepared for us. You can tell Rick has a true passion for what he does, and it shows in his presentations. He really knows what he is doing, we all loved every single thing he put on a plate for us. He was so informative and willing to work with what we wanted. He did mention a wedding he had done prior to our tasting that really left us all interested, which was the food stations. I can't even tell you.... my now Husband and I are big foodies, and for us the food was a big deal for us on our special day. So we decided to just go for it, going with the little Italy station and all American slider station. Every guest I've talked to said the food was nothing short of amazing. It was the neatest set up and totally put a spin on the typical buffet style dinner. Such a huge hit. We're still craving the mini lobster rolls! Rick and Nora are quite the team and can't wait to use them for any other event that we have. You will not be disappointed !

Lantern Catering is fantastic! We have worked with Rick and his team on numerous events and they are always professional, punctual and deliver the best food and service to our clients and their guests. They are fun to work with and truly take pride in what they do. We highly recommend Lantern!

Working with Rick and Nora of Lantern Catering is an absolute breeze. From a venue perspective (one that doesn't provide catering, at that)--referring and working with a catering company that knows what they're doing, while providing excellent customer service to our mutual clients, is an absolute must. Rick and Nora go above and beyond. And the food? Always delicious! We've had the pleasure of trying several of their dishes, and everything we've tasted has been a homerun.
