    Fantastic staff and delicious food

    McGrath's was such a pleasure to work with! Everything from choosing the menu, tweaking it to how we wanted, the staff the day of, and our coordinator were so fantastic and the process was stress-free. The food was delicious and our guests couldn't stop raving about their meal! The poached pear and walnut salad with goat cheese was a hit. I would absolutely recommend McGrath's to anyone in RI or the surrounding areas as their caterer!

    We received so many compliments on both the food and service - McGrath was outstanding in both areas. Recommended highly! They helped make our New England wedding just that much more amazing.

  • Eventfully Planned Wedding Planners

    I am a local Rhode Island Wedding planner. I have worked with McGrath's catering a handful of times in the past 7 years. Every time was a very nice experience. The guests were happy, they worked as a team with all the other vendors and the events rean seamlessly. This coming season I have many events on the books with them...so our role in working together in the planning process has been more involved. The customer service, and planning process has been very pleasant and I have to say I really enjoy working with this caterer. The prices are good and competitive and they are willing to create a custom menu if you are looking for something else. The bake in the ground clambakes are just so special and fun for your wedding guests.

  • Aubrey Greene Photography Wedding Photographers

    I can't say enough good things about McGrath's. Their attention to detail is unsurpassed and their staff is as friendly as can be. After the event, my clients are always raving about their experience. I look forward to every wedding I do with them.
