Amazing Service All Around
Please bare with me as this will be a long one, but they deserve it! Tammy and Steven at Smokehouse Grill are absolutely amazing, along with their entire staff! We were a COVID wedding from start to (finally) finish, originally scheduled for late April 2020, we had to reschedule to early Nov. 2020, and they made it a breeze! They were so accommodating and receptive to what we needed during the date change, as well as all our number changes and menu changes throughout the whole process. It was so refreshing to work with a company that truly cared about what you needed from them. At both our tasting and wedding, they were extremely professional, polite and fun to work with. They came into the wedding knowing exactly what was expected from them and executed it 100%. While they have worked with our venue before, it was amazing to know we hired caterers that knew exactly where to set up and what to do the moment they stepped on the property. And to top if all off, they have the most AMAZING food! My husband is from the Eastern Shore of MD and we lived in Texas for a while, so he's a bit of a seafood and BBQ snob, but after our wedding, he couldn't stop raving about their lump crab balls and pulled pork. He was obsessed! We didn't get to spend as much time at our cocktail hour as we would have liked, but we DEFENITELY got to taste the food. The lump crab balls and chicken skewers were fantastic! We chose an upscale BBQ menu for our wedding reception dinner and everyone was so impressed. We had people commenting on how much they loved the food the whole week after the wedding. We originally tasted the chicken and prime rib menu, but after attending one of their events in Kent Island and tasting their BBQ, we deiced to go with the BBQ menu to give our guests a wider variety of food options for the night of the wedding. It truly was a hard decision between both menus that we went back and forth on on a daily basis, but, either way we knew we would end up with amazing food, and we did. We both had those wedding night jitters that make you not want to eat, and despite that, we both ate almost all the food on our plates because it was so good that we couldn't stop. Smokehouse Grill is truly the best catering company in the area that you can hire for your wedding.Sent on 11/22/2020
To Tammy, Steven and all of Smokehouse Grill, Thank You! You truly helped make the most out of a crazy situation of a wedding and your food was delicious! We can't wait for our next big event to hire you again!

Top Notch Caterer
Smokehouse Grill LLC in Stevensville, MD catered our wedding last week (10.10.2020) and I have to say they were beyond incredible. First let’s start off by saying that Steve was prompt and made sure he got to our venue early since our wedding had so many moving parts. He was so easy to work with and kept in touch on a regular basis whenever we had questions or concerns. As for the food, it was absolutely delicious. For our appetizers we had the mini crab cakes. Probably the best I’ve ever had. They even hand delivered them to us to make sure they were still warm when we ate them. For our main course we had the prime rib and Caribbean chicken as our main dishes and every guest told us how amazing they both were. The staff was wonderful as well. The bartenders were on point and extremely attentive. They made sure we always had a drink in our hand and were happy with what it was. Smokehouse Grill went above and beyond to make everything perfect. If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Thank you Tammy and Steve for making our day perfect!Sent on 10/12/2020

Smooth Sailing on Kent Island with Smokehouse Grill!
Trying to hold a wedding and rehearsal dinner in midst of a pandemic is quite a challenge but we used Smokehouse Grill for the rehearsal dinner and they did everything we wanted and made the entire experience easy. The food was amazing, the servers, bartender, chef and oyster shuckers were all so friendly and incredibly responsive. Steve and Tammy, the owners, couldn't have been easier to coordinate with -- would use them again in a heartbeat!!!Sent on 10/12/2020

Amazing Eastern Shore Caterer
Smokehouse Grill catered our wedding on October 10, 2020. The experience they offered us was above and beyond anything we could have dreamed of. The stress of planning a wedding during COVID is tough and Tammy and Steve were on top of all the guidelines and precautions necessary to make our wedding a fairytale. We used Smokehouse for both our bar and food service. We chose a buffet style service that included eastern shore crab dip, assorted cheese, fruit and vegetables, garden salad, chicken Chesapeake, a top round of beef with au jus and horseradish, buttery green beans, and dill roasted red potatoes. The food was cooked on site, fresh and delicious. Tammy even made sure to serve us dinner first so we could eat while our guests went through the food station line. We had so many compliments from our guests regarding the wonderful meal and quick bar service. It is always the little things that make a difference. Tammy and Steve were always available, gave fast responses, and have the ability to calm stressed brides (speaking from experience). I knew from day one we were in good hands with Smokehouse Grill and I could trust this wonderful small business to do what they do best. Thank you, Steve and Tammy, for making our day so memorable. You two and your staff are AMAZING!Sent on 12/15/2020

Great service and amazing food!
We used Smokehouse Grill to cater our wedding reception as a buffet style service. From the beginning, Smokehouse Grill was very organized and their communication was great. We worked mostly with Tammy and she was fantastic through the entire process. We unfortunately had to reschedule our wedding from May to September because of COVID. They worked with us through all of that and answered all of my overly concerned questions. We got everything figured out for the new date really quickly and they sent us a new contract with the new date which was comforting since some vendors did not change the contracts and I was worried that the date change might not be fully noted. On the day of, they showed up on time and got everything ready with little assistance. The food was delicious and I got so many compliments on how great everything was and how hot the food was even toward the end of the buffet service. We definitely didn't run our food so the serving sizes were spot on for the amount of people we estimated. Since COVID was still a concern, they made changes to their normal procedure in order to follow state COVID guidelines. The staff was great about wearing masks and serving the food to everyone. They also had a sanitation spot so guests could sanitize their hands too. The staff even brought my husband and I our own plates with a little bit of everything on it so we could eat and did not have to go through the buffet line. A small gesture that really made a big difference, saved us some time and made sure we actually got food and ate. I cannot thank Tammy enough for the amazing food, great service and making our special day go flawlessly. I would definitely recommend Smokehouse Grill for any event.Sent on 09/18/2020

We could not have picked a better caterer for our wedding! The food and service was fantastic and we received so many compliments from guests about the delicious food and kind staff. Tammy went above and beyond her job requirements in so many ways. I got married outside a barn and it was VERY hot outside. Right before the ceremony started, one of my bridesmaids told me the caterers had put out coolers filled with bottles of water for guests. This was not in our contract and no one had requested it, but they took the time to help make our guests comfortable. The wind was also very strong right as I was about to walk down the aisle. Tammy ran over and adjusted the train of my dress for me when she saw me struggling. Her staff also took the time to help the bridal party light candles in the venue without a second thought. These kind gestures were so important and special to my husband and I! During the wedding planning process, hiring Smokehouse Grill was one of the best choices we made and we would highly recommend them to anyone.Sent on 08/04/2019

Smokehouse Grill catered our wedding a couple weeks ago and I am so glad we chose them as our vendor! I mainly corresponded with Tammy, and occasionally Steven, who were both always very quick to answer any questions we had. Even if we had an oddly specific question or request, they were very thorough with everything and always checked back with us to make sure that everything had been understood correctly. Smokehouse Grill had two main selling points for us. The first was that they are able to cook on-site. Because our venue did not have a kitchen, this was important to me because I wanted to have food that tasted as fresh as possible. Plus, man did it smell amazing as we were getting ready! The second thing is that you are able to customize the type of menu you would like. While there are set “menus,” Smokehouse Grill is very flexible in creating an a la carte situation so that we had exactly what we wanted on our wedding day. They also provide linens which was super helpful, and they have a variety of colors and textures to choose from. Another plus is that they provide a cleanup service and take all the trash with them. From what I heard after my husband and I left, cleanup was quick and efficient and they took care of everything! Tammy and the entire Smokehouse team were super friendly and fun during the wedding day and I cannot even tell you how many people told us that it was the best wedding food they ever had. The barbecue is awesome, and their sides compliment everything very well (the mac and cheese is AMAZING). I would recommend Smokehouse Grill to anyone who needs a caterer- you will not be disappointed!Sent on 06/10/2019

Couldn’t recommend them enough, Smokehouse grill made our wedding day so relaxing and easy!Sent on 06/10/2019

Steve and Tammy are so easy to work with. Steve was our main point of contact for the year that we were planning our wedding and he is so kind and great at what he does. I had A LOT of questions as we were going along and he always emailed me back very quickly or was available to talk on the phone. He made sure we had exactly what we needed as far as our tent, rentals, linens, etc. He really thought of everything so I didn't have to. The food was delicious and everyone had such a fun time at our wedding. I would recommend Steve and Tammy to any couple without a doubt!! Thank you guys!!Sent on 11/05/2018

Steven and Tammy made sure my daughter's wedding reception was a fairytale come true. From the initial tasting to the clean up at end of the night, couldn't have been more perfect on every level. The bartenders were awesome, knowing what everyone drank by second trip to bar!! They went over and above from set up, to helping with every small detail. The food was delicious and our guests raved about it!! Thank you for making the entire evening unforgettable !!! Amazing!!!Sent on 05/31/2016

All that is probably needed to say in a review is that I will use Smokehouse Grill again (and again, and again……). Steve, Tammy and staff catered our daughter’s outdoor wedding in September, 2018, 140 guests, huge tent, days and days of rain (did I mention the wedding was on coastal property on Maryland’s Eastern shore, guests sitting in and walking in puddles and mud). From the first email inquiring about price, product, availability, etc. to them silently packing up and leaving the property, Smokehouse Grill was helpful, nice, professional and courteous. Through the planning process Steve gave us a lot of great advise that really helped. Being able to just deal with one place for catering and a tent made life so much easier. The weather sucked, the ground was under water but the food, alcohol and service were awesome. Many of the guests complemented the quality and taste of the food and asked for the name of the caterer. Best wedding ever (thanks to Smokehouse Grill)!Sent on 10/26/2018

The Smokehouse Grill is Outstanding
My husband and I hosted a BBQ at a park in Annapolis to honor the wedding of our son and his new bride in July 2018. After reading many different reviews, I decided to book with Smokehouse Grill. Everything went perfect from filling out the online form to the delivery of the food. I ordered for 100 guest, everything was outstanding and plentiful. I would and have highly recommended this company.Sent on 10/22/2018

We had a bar-b-q/crab feast for about 100 people the day after a wedding & reception.Sent on 07/13/2018
Smokehouse was on site 3 hours before the event, cooking and steaming! The four guys they sent to handle the event worked all day and they truly MADE the event pleasurable for us. If you want a catering experience where you don't lift a finger, give these folks a try.
OH, and the food?! Off the chain! People said it was better than the wedding/reception the day before! Of course being the grooms father I was happy with those comments!
If you're planning an event, it would behoove you to take a look at these folks!

We hired Smokehouse Grill to provide food and beverage service for our outdoor wedding/barbecue. Steven and Tammy Holden were easy to work with through the entire planning and production phases. The staff grilled onsite, preparing pit beef, barbecued chicken, pulled pork, and Italian sausage. Guests raved about the quality of the food: "Phenomenal" "Wonderful" "Great" "Tastes like homemade." We would readily hire Smokehouse Grill again for another function.Sent on 11/06/2017

We are so thankful we hired The Smokehouse Grill for our daughter and son in laws wedding 7/15/2017. The food was amazing. Steve his wife Tammy and all the crew were outstanding. Someone else commented ghost crew because they were always there but never in the way. Anything we needed or asked they were on it, but I don't think we needed anything it was already taken care of. The bartenders were very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this professional, easy to work with caterer any time. If we ever need a caterer again this will be a no brainer. Thank you again to The Holdens.Sent on 07/17/2017
