Not great. Clearly didn't review our wedding reception signature cocktail recipe (which had a total of 3 ingredients), which was sent earlier in the week, or just didn't share the info with the bartenders, even though I put a lot of time and thought into it and provided hard copies when they arrived. One guest let me know that halfway through the reception, she ordered a signature cocktail by name and the bartender didn't know what she was asking for, and didn't know how to make it. They made us look terrible.

Not helpful with our shopping lists, even though it was a promised service (by their math, we would've had to buy 20 2-liter bottles of Coke for 130 guests - we bought 9 and have 5 left.) 130 guests ordered drinks over 5 hours, and they went through about 3 lemons and zero limes as far as I can tell. I have no idea why they didn't use the garnishes we provided.

Not ready to go on time, not friendly, no positive feedback from guests. ("They were ok" was the best we heard; "It seemed like one of them had never made a drink before" was the worst we heard. Pretty bad.)

Craig is really nice over the phone (up until you write a negative review), but uses ALL CAPS in emails, and he doesn't read through the ones he receives. It's obvious that he doesn't write things down following phone conversations, either. He was annoyed that we didn't provide details about our ceremony, so I had to remind him that our ceremony was 3 days before the party.

And it's more irritating that the owner called me to let me know he was "irritated" about my negative review.

On the upside, they were there, they served drinks, people drank 'em, they cleaned up after themselves.

Ask for recommendations from bartenders at your favorite bar instead.

Everything worked as it suppose to and I can't complain about anything. The owner did his job professionally and as the person who hired Shake Bartenders I can't complain about anything. Will be hiring them again.
That's all I have to say.

As owner of this business, I claim we do not represent any of the descriptions below. The commentator that decided to post these reviews did not pay their contracted amount of money, was exceedingly difficult to work for and had unrealistic expectations. Please do not take the reviews seriously as they are not how our staff acts, works, speaks or treats our clients. Thank you for understanding.
