I would not recommend this caterer! While the cost seemed great during the planning stages, it wasn't worth it because many things were forgotten on our wedding day. The owner appeared very friendly and helpful, but does not appear to be

I have also had extremely good service and food via Joanie's catering. Was referred by a friend who is "in the business" of event planning and said she'd ordered platters to pick up which saved a portion of budget. I have used Joanie's on two occasions as well as their servers/waitstaff/bartenders. From planning to execution, this place is a sure fire. Girls packaged all leftovers at the end of the evening and whisked everything back into place. Really with the program. I would use them again in a heartbeat. Price is right.

PROS: Excellent food, servers and price
CONS: Kitchen outfit is in a little bit odd location. Not that it matters.

When we first saw the menu at Joanie's, we were already pretty eager to choose them, but tried to keep an open-mind about other caterers as well.

We narrowed it down between 2 caterers, and arranged with both a sample menu with costs, and then arranged to have a tasting.

First, my menu designing with Joanie's was much easier and more fun. We worked over the menu together via email, and it was really a time-saver during wedding planning.
At the other caterers...I thought I had my ideas set but somehow we ended up coming up with a menu at his office together that was all phyllo dough. Both came out to be the same price, and the menu with Joanies was just awesome, while the other caterer had us loaded down with phyllo that I didn't want want, but somehow got. When we told the phyllo guy that it was the same price, he looked it over like he'd made a mistake, and lowered it a little.

Overall, right then even I wasn't excited about the other caterer and was really looking forward to Joanies. We went to the phyllo guy's for a tasting. He was still in another appt, so my fiance and I tried a couple phyllo appetizers, no drinks, standing in the back for about 5 minutes. Awkward, and the food wasn't my favorite.

Then we went to Joanies. They had a table set for us with place settings, ice water with goblets, white tablecloth...then they brought out tastings of EVERYTHING - including some of the ham and turkey we wanted, a mini-cheese tray, etc. and then left us alone to eat and comment in peace. Everything was delicious!! I've never had such wonderful crab cakes! Based on our tasting and some things feeling too similar, Joanie helped us change a few things, and we were done. We knew right away we wanted to hire them and paid our deposit before leaving. We had a price from our original menu but got the new price within days of changing the menu.

Everyone still raves about the food at our wedding. It was fantastic and great presentation.

PROS: Very professional, excellent food, gourmet
CONS:
