Thoughtful, intentional, and most wonderful catering experience. 100% recommend.
I cannot say enough good things about Smokin Willys. First off, the food is amazing, and was a huge hit with the guests. There was something for everyone there and was absolutely an incredible part of our wedding. But the food is only a quarter of what makes them incredible (albeit an important part of any wedding, and 100% would pick them on food alone). For starters, I had the pleasure of working with Ashley to help coordinate and set up everything for the wedding. Ashley is incredibly detail oriented, and so kind and patient. She walked us through every detail, constantly made changes to our quote and helped us talk through decisions when we really didn't understand what was happening. Coming from someone who has never planning a large event, I found this to be incredibly helpful. We didn't have a coordinator, but Ashely very much helped to fill those gaps in our planning incompetence. Then we had the good pleasure of meeting with Holly (who would be our day of lead from SW) at our venue to review the details from the contract, and made sure to walk through the entire day with us. Holly was wonderful and a joy to work with! And was such an amazing coordinator for everything. Smokin Willy, come to find out, was not just a caterer but dang near a work crew for the entire event. They set up centerpieces (under the instruction of family/friends), they would have set up the ceremony site for us (although we were there the night before and set it up ourselves), but the tore everything down for us when it was over. They again cooked delicious food on site that was a hit, but then also stayed and helped to clean everything up when the night was over and removed trash. We picked a venue where we were responsible for a ton of things because the venue was a small team (also highly recommend Briar Patch B&B), but SW made things so much easier. We also had them cater the Rehearsal Dinner the night before and received the same sort of attention to detail and level of service from them (without Holly: smaller event). I HIGHLY recommend going to a food tasting and talking with them about all that they do. It is a bit pricey, but 100% worth every penny. You won't regret it.Sent on 06/10/2021

Best Wedding Caterer EVER!
The process working with Smokin Willy was seriously a dream. From our first interactions and tastings (we worked with Jaina and Tom) to when we started working with Ashley were amazing. They accommodated by millions of questions and changes with EASE. Ashley was extremely responsive, easy to work with, and quick to offer advice. We had a ton of decor elements (colored glassware) that we had bought and Ashley worked through all of the fine details of that with us to make our colored glassware dreams come true! We also were emailing her the week of to add heaters to our rentals because it was going to be chillier than we thought and it was done quickly and easily.Sent on 05/06/2021
Besides the amazing staff, the food was the best wedding food I have ever had (I could be biased, but our guests said the same thing!!) We used Smokin Willy for our rehearsal and reception and everything was SO tasty. I would hire them again and again for every event!!! Thank you Smokin Willy team!

Great organization, incredible food, and above and beyond service
Smokin Willy was both our caterer and our rentals for the wedding. Everyone we dealt with (Ashley, Olivia, and Holly especially!) was super helpful and did everything they could to make sure the day was special for us. The food and hors devours were incredible and everyone's only regret was that they were too full to eat more! The service was incredible and everyone went above and beyond in setting up chairs, moving tables, and running the bar all night. We would definitely choose Smokin Willy again!Sent on 11/09/2020
Smokin Willy makes the best bbq! Their chefs do a fantastic job, and cook onsite. Their staff are professionsal and hard workers. Highly recommend them for BBQ mixed with class.
Smokin Willys goes above and beyond to ensures couples and their families have an incredible wedding day. They cook all food directly on site, so it is served fresh, warm and delicious. They go the extra mile to make sure the bride and groom are happy, such as bringing them appetizers during photography and ensuring that they eat during the reception. Their staff is professional, fun loving and incredibly hard working! We simply can't say enough positive things about their outstanding team, BBQ and work ethic! Love working with them!
