Anne, Maurice, Wayland and the whole Rockland's team were wonderful to work with! Anne was responsive to my emails and quick to make any changes requested. Wayland provided a thorough and helpful walk through of our event space and rain site weeks prior to our event, which made discussing options for all set up easy. Maurice and the whole team were a delight to have on site, as we dealt with fairly windy conditions during our picnic.

Terrific catering for our daughter's wedding in Arlington, VA at Hendry House. During the planning phase, my daughter was able to make changes to the menu easily. We saved money by purchasing alcohol ourselves, with Rocklands bartenders serving it along with their delicious homemade lemonade and ice tea--much appreciated on a hot June Day. Simple barbecue buffet was great for a Garden Party wedding. The barbecue beef and salmon were a great choice. Also especially loved mini jalapeño corn muffins. For dessert, along with cake from our own bakery, Rocklands served mini cupcakes, and finished off with the usual coffee, and pulled out an icecream pushcart serving a half dozen novelty ice creams--guests loved this refreshing end to a very hot day. Staff and servers all did their jobs professionally allowing us to enjoy the event. Thanks Rocklands!

Rocklands Barbeque and Grilling Company is one of my favorite caterers to work with. We requested light reception fare for an industry event, and they went above and beyond to provide great food and service within a limited time-frame. They are timely and friendly, and the food is always delicious (try the mac and cheese)!
At the wedding last weekend, Katherine and Maurice were on top of every detail, from the moving of the dance floor to the special appetizer plate for the bride and groom. They were available to chat about timeline changes and were absolutely gracious all night long. And the wait staff, oh my goodness, they could not have been nicer. They felt like family. And, of course, the food was delicious!
Super good BBQ!
What fun to partner with Rocklands Barbecue here on Rocklands Farm! We are two different companies, but have had fun working together!
