    Fantastic experience!

    You cannot go wrong by hiring Blackstrap BBQ! From the moment we had our tasting we knew we had made the correct decision, the combinations of what they used in each dish were delightful. When we had to postpone a year due to COVID they were totally understanding and made it so easy for us. Kate was with me every step of the way, answering all of my questions not only about catering but other aspects of our big day, and even helped us with our florals! When we met with Andrea for a pre-wedding walkthrough she helped us to design how the reception would look and explained everything to help us have the perfect event! The reception was perfect--food was delicious and the service impeccable. They were outstanding to work with and your food will be outrageously delicious.

    Professional Team & Delicious Food

    Blackstrap BBQ provided delicious food for our August wedding. It was a total hit with our guests. Their staff is super professional, and the catering manager knew the venue inside and out, helped us create the schedule, kept things on track, and worked with a friend who was the announcer for the wedding. All the staff were masked, which meant a lot for COVID safety.

    Excellent Caterer

    So glad we picked Tasty Plates for our wedding! Kate was always very responsive in the planning stage. And she was almost like a wedding planner (than solely a catering company). Andrea was our day-of manager and she made sure everything went smoothly. Food was great; we had some doubts initially about whether to have bbq at our wedding (as it's not typical wedding food) but it worked out so well. Everyone liked the food and there were plenty of options. I would highly recommend Kate, Andrea, and the entire Tasty Plates team. Thank you all so much! We had the loveliest day at our wedding:)
