    Fabulous Food and Guests LOVED It!

    Alexis helped us coordinate details every step of the way from menu selection to linen and tableware selection to venue set-up. She was incredibly patient with us and was readily available to meet with us as anytime in the office and even at the venue months beforehand. She offered suggestions to help us budget-wise and still provide a unique experience for our day...she even hooked us up with a fire-pit and cigar/whiskey bar which was a HUGE hit! Especially with the guests who weren't so into dancing but kept them feeling good and I swear that's why they stayed until the bitter end! Hahaha! Several guests left saying that it was the best wedding they've ever attended! The gentlemen setting up and cooking the clamebake were super personable and did a great job explaining their background and the process of cooking the food. And oh my god the lobster was the BEST lobster I've ever tasted! It was cooked peeerfectly.

    Overall, McGrath was able to offer a classy set-up but still provide that casual/fun/country vibe we were going for. It was top-notch, personalized service and my husband and I are incredibly grateful for all the work they put in for us. Thanks guys!!

    McGrath is the best in the business!

    My experience working with McGrath was nothing short of perfect. They worked diligently with us in the months leading up to our wedding to craft an original menu that reflected exactly what we had always dreamed of serving at our wedding. They were incredibly creative and responsive throughout the entire process and the staff and service on the day of were flawless. I can't say enough good things about McGrath!

    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.
