    Mat and his team did an EXCELLENT job for our New Year's Eve (12/31/17) wedding on St. Thomas! The food tasted AMAZING, the staff was super helpful, and the set-up of the tables, chairs, linens, etc. was all perfect. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to have a wedding in the Virgin Islands!

    My husband and I recently got married in St. John (5/20/17) and St. John Catering knocked it out of the park for our welcome dinner and wedding reception. In my family, we believe that food brings people and families together. It was really important for us to have the food at our reception and welcome dinner blow everyone away and that's exactly what St. John Catering did. From the minute we met Mat we knew that we were in good hands. The experience, knowledge, and professionalism both Mat and his team exudes is hands down the best. We had our welcome dinner at Mat's venue. They had a great outdoor set up and our guests could not stop talking about how great the bbq was. For our wedding reception, we had a grilling station with flank steak and Mahi Mahi as well as a jambalaya station. Guests said the Mahi was some of the best fish they had ever had and were eating 2nd and 3rd helpings of jambalaya. Needless to say, if you are looking for a caterer/staff that will go above and beyond for your special day, St. John Catering is the best there is.
