Rocklands Barbeque and Grilling Company

About

Down to details at Rocklands! Once you have your basics in hand, there are endless possibilities in every menu we prepare. We'll focus on what’s important to you as we create a customized menu to reflect your tastes and style. Weddings are complex parties, so there are varying components that make up the catering cost in addition to the food. The totals -- food, service staff, equipment rental, non-alcoholic beverages and delivery for most weddings -- fall into the following ranges:

  • Cocktail Reception | $80 – $100 per guest
  • Buffet with china | $100 -- $120 per guest
  • Buffet with disposables | $75 -- $95 per guest

Note that we have not included alcohol in these estimates -- but we're happy to arrange for and serve beer, wine, full bar, a single specialty cocktail or a full tiki lounge with umbrella drinks, if that's what you desire.

    Highly recommend for any event

    I highly recommend Rocklands for catering any wedding. They are extremely professional and easy to work with. The food is absolutely delicious, we received many compliments from our guests. The service was incredible. I would use them again for any event. They clearly know what they are doing. I loved that they provided cute menu and drink signs. We are also gluten free and have friends with other allergies. They marked all of that on the menu and card tents. We provided all the alcohol to save some money, they provided all the mixtures and fruits etc. They did a wonderful job making and serving the drinks at the bar.

    My first choice and go to

    We really wanted bbq and Rockland's was the only one to be able to do it fun style with class. We had china and silverware with cloth napkins and glasses. They did a site visit and walked through the layout with all our concerns in mind and on the day of the event they were there and ready to go with all the staff and accessories. Our site was 35 miles away and they didn't bat an eye. Our guests (165) were thrilled with the wonderful food in a non-traditional but formal menu. We have used them several times since to cater our events.

    Our son's traditional big wedding plans got covided. So after Rockland's food truck came to our neighborhood a couple of times, we had them cater a family-only backyard reception. It was great!

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!
