Papa Joe and his team were A++++.

I met with and hired Papa Joe nine months before our wedding date. He went over the entire menu with me and had the chefs cook different items for me while I was at his restaurant.

He made me feel very comfortable and would tell me 'not to worry about a thing'. He was very professional and has been in the business for many, many years.

He was in contact with my wedding coordinator and they discussed any items needed for the day of. Since Papa Joe had not been to the venue before, he drove out with his team the month before and walked the area. This made me feel very comfortable and ensured that I hired the right person.

We also used Papa Joe for all of our linens. We rented extra long white table cloths for every table (we had farm house tables) and navy napkins. He was able to accommodate.

Now, on to food and drinks:

WOW. That is what I heard from our guests. We had people coming up to us saying "We go to wedding with zero expectations of the food. It is typically poor and bland. We had yours and we went back for more. We would have PAID for it!!"

We were beaming when we heard that.

We had cocktail hour with appetizers, salad and bread at the table when the guests arrived to their seat and a buffet with a carving station. We also used Papa Joe for our open bar.

Our guests absolutely loved it. We are 200% pleased with Papa Joe and his team and would recommend them to anyone.

Delcious and Very Professional

We hired Papa Joe's catering for our wedding. They were a great value and very delcious. The portions were HUGE and plenty to feed our 100 guests - with leftovers to take home!!! We ordered Baked Penne Pasta, Beef Tips, Chicken Marsala, Green Beans Almondine, Garden Salad and Dinner Rolls. The Penne was delicous! Papa Joe and his staff were punctual and were very responsive in the days prior to the wedding as I followed up. My mother-in-law also hired them for our Rehearsal Dinner and everything was great! Plenty of delicous appetizers and a hearty buffet selection. He was great at accommodating my bridesmaid with very sensitive Gluten allergy!
