    Absolutely Amazing

    Premiere Catering was not only one of the most professional companies I have ever worked with, they were just the nicest people as well! From start to finish they were there for all of our questions and concerns and they put us at ease. I seriously felt like a VIP every time we went in to talk to them. When our 150 person guest count wedding went down to just 20 people they were ready to do what ever we needed to still have the wedding of our dreams which still included the best food! The food was just as extraordinary as their professionalism. I looked around as everyone was eating and I knew that we had picked the right people! Nothing but satisfied faces. I cannot express enough how much you will love Premiere!

    Amazing Food, Great Service

    We hired Premier for our wedding in October. I had imagined a homestyle BBQ buffet and Michael and team hit the nail on the head. Every person I spoke to after the wedding mentioned how amazing the food was. The servers were also super friendly and helpful. Would recommend Premier for anyone looking for catering services!

    Best catering service ever!

    Premiere Catering had THE MOST DELICIOUS food we had at our tastings! After having to postpone our wedding THREE times due to COVID19 (but take that COvid, we STILL made 2020 our year!) and having to find a new venue and caterer we were SO LUCKY to have found Premiere! We were won over by their delicious tasting, the service provided, the quick responsiveness, and above all them working with our budget. They not only delivered finger licking good food, but also an AMAZING alcohol package! We had a hosted bar with wine, beer, AND 4 hard liquor cocktails! They wrote up a contract we could not refuse lol. I am not going to lie one of the things I was looking most forward to at my wedding was sitting down and having our yummy meal again! We will definitely be using Premiere for any other event that we may need to provide food such as holidays or parties. Thanks for everything guys, and Michael thank you for working with us and delivering a kick @$$ meal and drinks!

    Highly recommend Premier Catering

    This review is about our experience working with Michael, the General Manager at Premier Catering. Michael is so awesome! He was very responsive, thoughtful and professional the entire wedding planning process. We can tell that he loves what he does, and it shows. We started this process with a tasting and thought the food was amazing. He was also able to cater our menu for dietary concerns such as making adjustments for things to be gluten and dairy free. Michael also helped us out by allowing us to rent lawn games through the same person who he was getting our linens from and brought those to our venue with the linens. Everyone at our wedding loved the food and desserts!! We are so impressed with Michael and we highly recommend Premier Catering!

    Great food and Great staff!

    Michael and his staff did a fantastic job catering our son’s rehearsal dinner last week! The event was originally scheduled at a restaurant, but due to Covid, that was out of the picture. The dinner was held in the beautiful back yard of the bride’s parents. The setting, linen table cloths and all, was gorgeous.
    Everyone enjoyed the food. With various food issues for some of us,(gluten free and vegan) Michael came up with great options for us all. Thanks again Michael for being a big part of a very special event!

    Amazing Food, Fantastic Flexibility

    The food that we picked was amazingly presented and so delicious! All of our guest were raving about it!! From the appetizer to the main course, it was incredible. Michael and the rest of the crew were incredibly easy to work with. We did the "Pick Up & Go" option, and it was incredibly easy and the best option for our finances. The food was ready on time and there were no hassles regarding the pick-up. We would absolutely use them again if we ever throw another catered party.

    Premiere Catering...wedding

    Premiere Catering was one of the best decisions we made when selecting vendors for our daughter's wedding. Michael did a fantastic job; the food was delicious and the display was beautifully done. We had to make the arrangements via phone/email since we live in another state yet Michael was flexible and very willing to work with us to customize the menu and we appreciated the recommendations he made. Everything went smoothly and just as planned.

    Outdoor Wedding

    Premiere catering provided catering services for our wedding. We worked with Michael Peters to finalize our menu and he handled all of the logistics. Michael was extremely responsive to all of our questions and communications. I have attended so many weddings where the catering is okay, it’s rarely been great or memorable and I thought that was just a feature of nearly all wedding caterers. When we went to the tasting for our wedding I was surprised by how good everything was but honestly expected that the final product at the event wouldn’t be as good given my previous experiences. The catering provided by Premiere was honestly phenomenal! We had a great spread from appetizers to the dinner buffet with breads, veggies, fruits, and meat. The macaroni and cheese was delicious. The grilled mixed veggies were tasty and gorgeous. The brisket was by far the star. It was tender and smoky and well way beyond our expectations. Many friends and family asked us if the wedding was catered by a local restaurant. Even more surprising some of the pickiest members of our family (children) ate virtually everything and some had thirds! Several individuals had dietary restrictions and Premiere worked with us to make sure everyone had a delicious meal. If you are looking for a wedding caterer Premiere will not disappoint.

    Beautiful presentation and great service

    From the moment we inquiries about Premiere Catering, Michael was super friendly and helpful. He was quick in responding to all our questions and the service day of was excellent. They really are full service catering and reasonably priced, I would recommend them to any couple who’s looking for an elegant expensive look without the high costs.

    Delicious food and great service!

    We have nothing but great things to say about Premiere Catering! John was very responsive and flexible with everything. We decided to have a BBQ buffet for our vineyard wedding, and the food was delicious! Even my Texan father-in-law raved about the brisket, saying it was top-notch. John was very attentive on the day-of, making sure we had everything we needed. Would absolutely recommend for wedding catering!

    Premiere Catering Excellent!

    Premiere Catering, in particular John McClellan and Sasha, did a great job catering our daughter's wedding. The food was impeccable and the service was great. Several attendees told me that the brisket was the best they had ever had. They did 100% (and more) of what was promised in both the planning and execution of our event. They would be my first choice for our future needs.

    Absolutely the most professional service from all aspects of planning and execution, very transparent about everything, seamless day-of production, and the food was all delicious and displayed beautifully!

    Helped us in a pinch and provided delicious food!

    Premiere Catering helped us by coming through when our previous caterer fell through. They were very flexible, willing to work with our ideas and diet limitations, and very responsive. We are very happy that we chose Premiere Catering for our wedding this past May.

    Working with John at Premier was amazing! He was so darn knowledgeable and helped us through the whole planning process. It made all our decisions easy after hiring this team for our catering! All of our guests were raving about how good the food was and there was plenty of it! No one was leaving our wedding reception hungry. During the reception, the Premier team was flexible with a few late guests. They were so professional and treated my family like their own. I would 100% recommend Premier Catering to anyone looking to throw a great party!

He worked with us to do exactly what we wanted and was able to make helpful suggestions for us to consider. The food was excellent and plentiful. The bar service was great and very friendly. Their prices are very reasonable!!!! I would definitely use them again and again and again!!!! The food was excellent!!!!

    Owner Michael was one of the best vendors I worked with through out my wedding process. Literally one of the best, accommodating, and helpful person I have EVER worked with. I had a sit down dinner and the rest of the staff was very nice. My family is hard to please and they had no complaints. Premier catering always answered my emails with 24 hours and were very honest and responsive. The food was also very good! High recommend to anyone looking for a hassel free catering company to make their wedding AWESOME!

    We were married at East Fork Country Estate on 08/18/18 and had to use their in-house caterer, Premiere Catering. At first I was hesitant but enjoyed the tasting they set up for us. I also requested that there be some vegan and some gluten-free choices for our guests. Every email exchange was prompt, professional, and assuring. When it came time for the big day and dinner, it was all just so delicious. In fact, several guests were surprised at how delicious everything was and two even asked for their contact information!
    I would consider them again if I needed a caterer. Seriously, request the mac and cheese. Trust us!

    Premiere Catering- The team at Premiere Catering was fantastic throughout the whole wedding process. From the tasting 6 months prior to the wedding, communication leading up to the big day, and then the quality of food day of was simply AMAZING. Not only was the service exceptional they thought of everything and were extremely accommodating; my wife is Gluten and dairy free and they made sure food was prepared in separate locations, and made sure her food didn’t come into contact with rest of buffet. Guests at our wedding raved on how delicious things tasted, and how great the service was. Choosing Premiere Catering was a great decision for us! Taylor

    Our daughter and her new husband chose Premiere Catering for their July 15, 2018 wedding and we couldn't be happier. The attention to detail and personal service provided by Michael was phenomenal! Everything went as planned without any hiccups on their part at all. Michael was in constant communication the entire time and answered every question quickly. It's obvious that he is a seasoned veteran in this business and clearly knows how to throw a party! I would choose Premiere again without any reservation. By the way, go with the brisket pasta for your meal- wow!

    My now-husband and I first met John a few months before our wedding after seeing some good reviews and were so impressed with the professionalism and expertise he provided.

    He never tried to pressure us into anything we didn’t want and always asked for our opinions first. He was able to give cost saving advice on some of the decorations and stayed within our budget. He also made the experience of picking out our food/decorations enjoyable and always had excellent tips to share.

    I never had to stress about my wedding because John took care of EVERYTHING; food, drinks, decorations, timeline, you name it! On top of that he also always responded to my calls and emails within 10min during the busy wedding season! John and his team showed up early to the venue and transformed the bland, boring space into a beautiful, relaxing wedding!

    I’ve had wedding buffets in the past and really wasn’t looking forward to having one at my own but we couldn’t afford a sit down service dinner. The minute we tried the food at our tasting all my worries went out the door. The entire menu was delicious, it was so unique we almost couldn’t make up our minds. My favorite part of the whole day was the food, I’m not kidding, ask my husband!! John had someone assigned to me and my groom the whole day to make sure we were fed! I’m gluten free and my guests aren’t, so John made an extra special meal just for me!!

    All of my guests commented after the wedding how great the food was and said it was one of the best meals they’ve ever had at a wedding. We even had some extra food to take home which we put in the freezer. It was so nice coming home to delicious prepped meals after our honeymoon.

    I would recommend Primiere Catering to anyone who wants delicious food, professional staff, and stress free planning!!
