Outstanding! 10/10 Recommend

Rettew's was incredible and everything we could've hoped for in our caterer. They were very accommodating and transparent leading up to the day. We had a few ethnic options that we wanted to incorporate, and they pulled it off flawlessly! We also had a few specialty drinks that we did, and people still rave about them to me to this day! Very affordable especially considering we had a wedding with 170 guests. And the menu they put together was very creative and perfect for the vibe of what we were going for. Not to mention the food was awesome! I was always worried about the food part of the wedding as that can tend to be the most memorable, good or bad. We were blessed to be left with the memory Rettew's provided and hope to be able to work with them again in the future!

Incredible

Rettews was one of the best vendor decisions we made for our winter wedding. We wanted a cozy, home-cooked meal vibe and oh my gosh they delivered! They worked with us to customize some special stations like a soup and grilled cheese bar, a hot cocoa bar, and a smores station! Everything was amazing, we even had some guests tell us it was the best wedding food they had ever had! I so wish I could go back in time and eat more of everything (advice to future brides out there...make sure you give yourself time to eat!). I can't recommend Rettews enough, absolutely 10/10.

Top notch service & food

Rettew's Catering did a phenomenal job for my daughter's wedding. From start to finish, they were so easy to work with and offered a lot of different options. You would NEVER know that the venue did not have a kitchen on site. The food was hot and delicious. I had several guests go out of the way to compliment the food. On top of that, the service was top notch. They were on top of every detail every step of the way. Highly recommend!
