    Words can not describe how amazing MBP catering is. Practically every guest we spoke to, meat eaters and vegetarians alike, raved about the food to us on their own volition - no exaggeration. We even received an inadvertent drunk voicemail from the groomsmen that night where we could overhear them talking about how good our food was. People were so happy to eat great tasting wedding food - which is strangely such a rarity!

    Even the next morning, at our brunch [also catered by MBP] I kept hearing about how good the food was. Our menu: fried chicken, short ribs with peach bourbon sauce, mac and cheese lorraine, mashed potatoes, green beans, salad, and fried biscuits with apple butter. They even made the apple butter from scratch! People were obsessed with the fried biscuits.

    MBP was able to make exactly what I wanted for our wedding and were very reasonably priced. They were also able to provide china and flatware for a price that wasn't insane like some vendors.

    We worked with Christina Tooke and she was awesome - everything went so smoothly. Christina kind of stepped into the shoes of event coordinator and helped with the pacing of the evening. MBP's staff was very professional, and it all went swimmingly. I've already recommended MBP to several girlfriends getting married and one is planning on using them at her wedding next summer.

    If you want a reliable, professional caterer that won't cost you an arm and a leg and that makes delicious food - MBP is the obvious choice.

    ONE WORD OF ADVICE TO COUPLES: ask your caterer to prepare you to-go meals. We didn't spend a lot of time eating because we were so busy with wedding activities and on our way to our hotel we were starving. So we ended up eating mushy sandwiches from Steak n' Shake and were so sad thinking about our amazing food that we only got a couple of bites of. I think caterers ought to ask couples if this is something they're interested in.

    5 star experience!!

    My husband and I are so lucky to have worked with the staff at MBP!! From the beginning, they were great and easy to communicate with and were excited to begin working together on our wedding. Our tasting went so smoothly, and the food was absolutely delicious! During the course of wedding planning, the staff member that we were previously working with left the company, and we were placed with a new staff member, Brandy. Brandy was great to work with and made the transition for us seamless. She had all of our information about the wedding from the previous employee, and it was like they didn't skip a beat! The wedding food was absolutely delicious, and we received so many compliments throughout the night! Would recommend this company 1000 times over!

    MBP Distinctive Catering's reply:

    Thank you so much for a great review and I am thrilled that you were pleased. Brandy was so excited when she saw your review and we very much appreciate your comments.

    Delicious!

    I loved my interactions with MBP! They were very helpful and easy to get a hold of when needed! Also everyone at my wedding raved about the food! Specifically the lobster bisque was UNREAL!
