My husband and I chose Ned's Catering based on the recommendation of my sister-in-law who had used them for a fundraising event as well as our venu who highly recommended their services as well. Ned's has been in the catering business for over 25 years.

Initial Tasting: We had an initial tasting with Ned and he allowed for 6 total people to attend and taste. My family and I ultimately decided on beef tenderloin with mashed potatos and salmon with julienned vegetables. Our wedding menu also came with a salad and rolls. Our tasting went very well and Ned and his son, Ned Jr. were extremely professional.

Months Leading Up to the Wedding: I do have a couple of critiques about them, but you'll see why later I gave them 5 stars. (1) It was pretty difficult to get ahold of Ned and/or Ned Jr. while we were planning our wedding. It would take a couple of days to hear back from an email, if at all. Their secretary, Ashley, was really sweet but lacked follow through. She was also pregnant at the time so I'm sure that had quite a bit to do with it. Also, Ned was having quite a bit of health issues which is the reason why it was so hard to contact him. (2) They're disorganized. When we had meetings with Ned and/or Ned Jr. we noticed that their office was VERY disorganized. Bills and paperwork everywhere! I just kept thinking to myself, how on earth are these guys going to pull off our 450 guest wedding without being organized? They also have a tendency to forget certain details that you have specifically outlined for them many times over i.e. Ned's putting on our chair covers, Ned's providing the bar setup, what's on the menu...some pretty important stuff! A word of advice, make sure you document EVERYTHING! (3) They're pretty nonchalant about your concerns leading up to the wedding. I would call/nag/barade their email, and they would tell me "Don't worry about it. We got this."....which of course makes this organized bride worry even more!

Wedding Day: Ned Jr., who is only 26 I think, was the person in charge of our wedding day. So of course, I worried on my wedding day about that issue. Who doesn't? Let's just say, all of my worries were completely wiped away by the end of the evening. Here's all the reasons why. Ned's was in charge of a 450 person seated dinner, cocktail hour which included hor's deuvres that were provided by a different caterer, setup (table linens, place settings, cleanup, bar setup (i.e. ice, mixers, sodas, all of the accessories a bar needs), bartenders, and cake cutting. I think they had well over 30 - 40 staff at our wedding. They executed all of their tasks without any hitches. The food was AMAZING and tasted just like our initial tasting if not better. My tenderloin was medium just the way I like it and the salmon melted in my mouth. They were extremely friendly and many of their staff members were laughing and smiling, yet professional throughout the whole day. Any additional requests that were made throughout the day was seemlessly executed with a smile. I feel that if I had used any other caterer that day, my wedding would not have been as successful. Not only was Ned's Catering amazing with the food, they value their customers and made my wedding day so much more special.

Final Thought: Although there is some room for improvement mentioned above, they flawless execution well made up for the months leading up to the wedding. I am highly recommending them to loved ones for future events to come.
