    Delicious food and great service!

    We are so happy we chose Main Event to cater our wedding. The food was absolutely delicious. We received so many compliments from our guests who said they are used to wedding food being 'meh' but this food impressed them! I received such great service from the tasting to the actual wedding day and during the entire wedding planning process. I loved the server in charge of making sure the groom and I constantly had a drink in our hands :)

    I worked many events with Main Event (normally at Carnegie and River Farm) and I have found their staff to always be top notch! The food is wonderful and they're very responsive to client's needs.

    Amazing company and amazing people. This company knows how to be helpful and create generous service to no limits. the food was terrific, and overall reasonably priced. The server seemed to read my mind and was taking care of everything as I thought of it. Everyone involved - from planning to set-up to serving, to clean-up was so professional and pleasant. We were able to put on the event we wanted within the budget we'd planned every time. Great work with Spencer and team last year and many more weddings to go.
