Bear’s Smokehouse BBQ Catering Reviews

I just wanted to take a moment to tell you how exceptional everything was. The food was delicious (as always) and the guests couldn’t stop talking about it. The staff you sent was marvelous, helpful, and extremely professional. We would not hesitate to have Bear’s cater a future event. Please feel free to share our success story because we are singing your praises here!!
I hope this email finds you well. I wanted to reach out and send a long overdue thank you for your work in coordinating the catering for my Father’s birthday party. The event was a huge success (despite the rain) and everyone loved the food. The burnt ends and mushrooms were easy favorites. Additionally, the young woman who dropped off the food was helpful and courteous and represented Bear’s very well. We’re looking forward to having another party if just to have more Bear’s BBQ!

Thank you so much for catering last night’s Little House concert benefiting Easter Seals. Everything was delicious and received rave reviews!!! You have gained many new and repeat customers with your fabulous menu and your generosity! Your staff was awesome and so gracious to our guests.

I want to thank Bear’s BBQ for the wonderful job you all did in preparing a feast for my guests. The food was absolutely delicious! And, as predicted, very little was left! Thanks again for your part in making my husband’s 60th birthday party a success.

Catered my daughter’s wedding rehearsal dinner on Friday October 2nd and everyone was raving about the food. Everything was absolutely delicious.
Kathy was so friendly and helpful and made menu selections and amount easy. I did come to pick up the food and the gentlemen who helped me was so kind and gracious. It was pouring rain and he gallantly carried everything out to my car. You guys are amazing!
