5 Max Catering & Events Reviews
Married on 06/15/2019
We were initially reluctant to use Max for our backyard wedding catering because they were more expensive than the other caterers we considered. In the end, however, Max helped us get the price down ... Read more to a point we were comfortable with, and the quality, service, professionalism, and overall excellence were ultimately worth the extra cost. Jordanna and Amy responded immediately to our emails, accommodated every little request, offered useful opinions, and gave us a hand with all the details that backyard weddings involve. They came to our house for a walk-through before the wedding and helped us make floor plans for the tent, order rentals (through Taylor Rentals in Manchester), and think about the flow of the event. On the day of the wedding, the Max staff members brought us a platter of hors d'oeuvres, made sure we went up first to the dinner buffet, and came by every twenty minutes to make sure we were taken care of. Plus, they played with our dog and started a conga line on the dance floor! In short, every single person on the staff was kind, helpful, and professional. And, of course, the food was amazing. One guest (who has high standards for food) described it as "the best I have ever eaten at a wedding or anywhere." There was a long line for the dim sum station during cocktail hour, and the Chop House station received lots of compliments, especially the tenderloin, salmon, and potatoes. People were even complimenting the dinner rolls. And I can't recommend the mini dessert station enough—there was a huge variety, and everything was both beautiful and delicious. My new husband and I went back for a second round of desserts. TL;DR: If Max is within your budget, you should hire them immediately.

Max could not have been a better choice for our wedding. And it was surprising! We went into the process wanting a local small business to cater, but were blown away by Max's food and professionalism. ... Read more We worked with Jordanna to design a menu that was healthy and fresh - arugula salad, local cheeses and charcuterie - but not too healthy! - latkes and ice cream - and it was delicious. Our guests were raving about it! We absolutely appreciated the professionalism that Jordanna and Amy brought to the event. There is a lot to be said for choosing to work with an operation like Max's, where you get the benefit of experience and the ability to ask them to do ANYTHING and have them deliver. It all came out in the details - we had our own server, Lori, "assigned" to us for the night to make sure we ate, local ice cream from a childhood favorite store was served, and almost everything was naturally gluten free (the bride is celiac). Basically, we are so grateful we made the choice to go with Max. Worth it.

When we started planning our wedding the one thing we knew for sure was that we wanted to use Max Catering as we are huge fans of their restaurants. Boy did we make the RIGHT choice! Amy was so ... Read more helpful and easy to work with. The food was amazing. We did a Sunday Brunch Menu. The staff was also amazing. Friendly, happy to be there, and we wanted for nothing. I cannot say enough good things about Max Catering. I hope we have another event so we can us them again!
