Delicious food and Great Hospitality
Bayou Bluegrass provided the catering services for both the rehearsal dinner and the reception, and the food was delicious! Many guests commented about how much they enjoyed the food on both evenings. Bayou Bluegrass was also very easy to communicate with. We would recommend their catering services to everyone!Sent on 11/07/2019

Everything we experienced from the initial meeting to final wedding day festivities was beyond wonderful! Shanna put us at ease from the beginning and we knew we had chosen a great professional and courteous company to cater our daughter’s wedding. She was flexible with working out the details with us. We only have one daughter so we had no experience in this area and wanted this day to be memorable for her and the guests. Bayou did NOT disappoint! They were wonderful! Highly highly recommend and would definitely use them again should we ever need a caterer.Sent on 11/06/2019

We worked with Shanna and had a wonderful experience, both leading up to the wedding and on our wedding day. She and her team did an amazing job. The food was delicious too! We did all Cajun food and received several compliments from our guests saying it was the best food they’d had at a wedding.Sent on 11/07/2019

Amazing food and service
Bayou Bluegrass was everything I could have wanted from a caterer and more! From the initial meeting with Shanna, to the AMAZING food tasting we went to, to our wedding day, I had the most wonderful experience with them. The food tasting we went to was unlike anything I had been to before. They do group tastings and have different buffet stations with a little bit of everything to try from entree options, sides, pasta bar, taco bar, bite size station and a carving station. They even had an open bar with signature drinks, which was just the cutest touch. This gave is such a variety to choose from and opened us up to something different for our wedding. The entire planning process with them was amazing. We did not get married on their site and they were so open to meeting us at our venue out of town, face-timing us when we needed help, and responding so quickly when we had questions. Then there was the food at the wedding..... OMG!! We did the Italian buffet with chicken Alfredo and lasagna. We have never gotten so many compliments! The service was terrific making sure water glasses were filled and empty plates were thrown away. When we returned from our honeymoon and saw everyone for the first time after our wedding, the food was THE NUMBER ONE compliment we received back from our guest. I could eat their chicken alfredo for days! You wont regret booking BBC for your wedding/event!Sent on 11/06/2019

Amazing Top to Bottom!
We set up meetings with a few caterers in the area. One of them we knew would be a tasting that we were charged over $100 for. It was okay, if not a bit stodgy, and they didn't even let us keep any of the food. Our meeting with Bayou Bluegrass was just supposed to be a sit-down to talk through initial details and needs, and instantly Shanna made us comfortable and gained our trust without even trying. She was so relaxed and knew exactly where we were coming from for everything, and her confidence was unbelievably comforting. Not only that, she even let us taste some of the dishes they were making back in the kitchen that afternoon, and everything was absolutely delicious. The mac'n'cheese was so good that we decided to do an entire mac'n'cheese station at our reception and it was a smash hit. All of the food was delicious and timely and the right temperature, and Shanna was on top of everything. We didn't have to worry about a single thing on the day of, and even in the months leading up she answered all our questions promptly and changed our proposal a thousand times without complaining, which she definitely had every right to do given how many emails we sent. She was amazing, the food was amazing, and it was still less expensive than the place that charged us for the sub-par tasting. All around a wonderful experience!Sent on 08/29/2019

Beautiful Kentucky Wedding
We worked with Shanna and no words can express how amazing she was to help with LITERALLY every question that my family and I had. She is extremely good at her job! Also, the food was glorious! All of our guests loved it. We had the fried chicken, Brussels sprouts, Mac and cheese, and pulled pork! I recommend all of those!!! You can go wrong with this place!Sent on 05/21/2019

Easy to work with and the food tastes great!
We had such a good experience planning from out-of-state with Shanna. She was able to meet with us in the few days we were actually in town. At our wedding, the food was fantastic - we had a shrimp and grits, brisket, and green beans buffet. We had several people attending, including my husband, with Celiac disease, and they were able to eat everything on the buffet.Sent on 02/03/2019

Bayou Bluegrass Catering did a fantastic job with our wedding. The food was ready right on time, the tables, chairs, linens, and tableware were high quality, and the bartender and the entire staff were very professional and a pleasure to work with.

Two words: mashed potatoes.Sent on 06/02/2017
You can't go wrong with Bayou and Bluegrass catering. They did such a fantastic job with our buffet-style wedding dinner. The flavors tasted familiar, yet were delicious and displayed elegantly, considering the menu was more comfort-based. Our guests were VERY complimentary of the food (BBQ chicken, panko-crusted chicken with salad, ranch dressing and balsamic vinaigrette, carrots, mashed potatoes, and green beans), which was most important to us!
Speaking in terms of responsiveness, my mother was able to directly communicate with the chef before finalizing the menu. Bayou and Bluegrass also sliced and plated our cake gratis! Sometimes it may feel like you're nickel and dimed for every little service, but Bayou and Bluegrass was very affordable, flexible, reasonable and (most importantly) delicious! I highly recommend a tasting to see for yourself.

I had my reception at the Round Barn at Red Mile, catered with Bayou Bluegrass. Everything turned out AMAZING.Sent on 12/16/2015
We worked with Shanna Combs to plan everything. She was super flexible and responsive. We changed things on her a million times during the course of the planning and she didn't bat an eye, and took everything in stride. Whenever we wanted to take a last-minute peek at the Round Barn to let my photographer see it, she catered to our needs and let us in and gave us all last-minute reassurances about small details. They also did a fabulous job decorating, and we loved "borrowing" their holiday decorations. It was a perfect, wintery touch!
During the reception, I was exceptionally pleased. We received tons of complements on the food (lots of people went back for seconds). They also made sure to save plenty of food for my husband and I, which we definitely appreciated! As the bride, I was catered to the whole evening by their staff (they were great about asking me if I needed anything during the evening!) and Erin, the main point-of-contact during the event, was so nice.
I received so many compliments about the whole evening. All of the vendors worked so well together and the Round Barn is such a charming venue - it's really hard to go wrong. I won't like, it was expensive and we ended up spending way more than we originally planned, but it was 100% worth every penny, especially if you have a larger wedding like ours! (We had 220+ people). I highly recommend them!

The Red Mile Round Barn was a gorgeous place to have my reception!! The on-site caterer, Bayou Bluegrass Catering, was phenomenal- we had a pig roast that my guests are still raving about! It was truly delicious. They also worked with us to get my favorite varieties of craft beer. The round barn is a wonderful blank canvas- it can be draped and decorated however you prefer- there's plenty of opportunity for personal, decorative touches, but it's simplicity is beautiful as well if that's what you prefer. The highest recommendations!Sent on 11/24/2014

I have been to a few wedding in the past and to me the best part is the food, some food was good some was not so good. I am a super picky person. For my reception I wanted something southern and comforting. I am so glad that I decided to go with Bayou Bluegrass Catering, I was absolutely blown away by the food. I recieved so many compliments from my guests about how it was probably the best catering food that they had ever eaten. We had BBQ chicken and Beef Brisket (their signature entree) with mashed potatos, green beans and corn. YUMMY! The staff was super friendly, the owners worked with our budget to get us the best. I will definantely use them again for any catering services that I needSent on 08/19/2008

When we initially contracted with the Red Mile a year before the wedding they were in a state of transition with management so there were a few hic-ups at first. However having said that the results were perfect. We had the event at the historic round barn and the food was fantastic, the service excellent and the round barn was decorated beautifully. We were happy we made this the location for the wedding reception for my daughter and would recommend for anyone wanting a unique and beautiful location for a wedding.Sent on 11/17/2014

One of the owners, Angie, was absolutely amazing! On the wedding day, she was there and available and really had things moving along smoothly. The venue is beautiful and has everything you could ask for. They are extremely busy, so they may not be able to respond to a phone call or an e-mail right away, but they are definitely worth it. The venue is an older location and has been around for awhile, so the furniture and decorations are not "new", but if you are looking for a great place for your guests to have a great time, have beautiful scenery, awesome food and really experience the Kentucky horse racing tradition, this is the place for you! We really had an amazing experience and it is all thanks to Angie and the staff at Bayou Bluegrass Catering.Sent on 06/11/2013

I really enjoyed my wedding at the red mile, the food was good and everyone was helpful. The only thing I didn't like was how expensive it ended up being. They don't tell you before you put down a deposit about all the misc. fees and the huge service fee on top of the 2500$ just to reserve it and the cost of catering. It says that table linens are included but after being told the ones I chose were given to them by a previous bride, they charged me $50 for some reason to use them. It just seemed a little like they were nickel and diming and that added to the stress of planning a wedding. Also the servers were breaking down tables and decorations an hour before we were supposed to be finished and I felt rushed.Sent on 06/21/2013
But if you are ok with the price and are prepared to end up paying extra fees you didn't plan for, then I would recommend them.
