Marshall, Liz, and the whole Odeen team were simply wonderful. Not only were they incredibly easy to work with, Marsh was so accommodating when it came to creating a delicious menu while still staying within our budget (and avoiding all the food allergies in the bridal party!). Marsh and Liz were extraordinarily helpful generating ideas, offering advice throughout, and keeping the big day running smoothly. Their crew was extremely professional, courteous, and went above and beyond. Then there is the food. Delicious doesn't even begin to cover it! We could not have asked for a better caterer or people to have on board helping us through our wedding day.Sent on 10/09/2016
Much thanks to Marsh, Liz, and the whole clan!

We love Marshall John and Barbara!
Odeens BBQ catered our wedding last weekend in CT and I cannot stop my phone from buzzing with people asking us who made the BBQ!Sent on 05/21/2019
My husband's #1 priority for our wedding was that the food had to be BBQ and Odeens really delivered.
John and Barbara invited us up to Ridgefield for a tasting many, many months before the wedding and we had one of the best meals of our lives! They gave us huge, generous portions and made a dozen dishes for us to try. It was so difficult to choose between the dishes but we created an awesome wedding menu.
For cocktail hour we had tomato/moz skewers, mini reubens, sausage, and a huge GORGEOUS bounty table with cheese, meat, etc. For dinner we had a beautiful salad and fresh-baked cornbread, followed by salmon, brisket, chicken, mac n cheese, and roasted veggies. Suffice to say, people freaked out. We had many non-US guests who had never had BBQ before and they couldn't believe how delicious the food was. I even heard that one table asked for a third serving of mac n cheese.
Beyond the terrific food, Marshall, John, Barbara, Gary, and the whole team are just lovely people. They were kind, generous, and had fun with our guests.
The wedding was made so much more special and personal because we had Odeens wonderful food and staff. We will be forever grateful!

Above & Beyond: A true wedding magician
It is hard to put into words how grateful we are for all that Marshall and the entire Odeen's crew did to make our wedding the perfect celebration. Marshall went above and beyond in every portion of our wedding journey. The food was delicious; our guests raved about every dish that was served. Marshall was patient, a master problem solver, positive and flexible. If I had to choose one wedding vendor that I got to work with again it would be Odeen's, they really made our night magical. Thank you!!Sent on 10/15/2018
