  • A huge thank you to BHCC for the wonderful job they did for our daughter's wedding (10/2019). We worked with Heather (month of coordination) and she was so helpful! . The ceremony was at our family cottage and the reception at Hulls Cove School House. Heather coordinated the rentals and helped us with logistics, including figuring out the transportation. She calmly facilitated the rehearsal, ceremony and celebration. The food was outstanding and our friends and family raved about it...Service, from the bar to the family style service and clean up was exceptional. The attention to detail from everyone at BHCC was so appreciated! Our guests were so impressed! Highly recommend BHCC!!

    Thank you so much, Karen! We were honored to be a part of Sarah and Matt's celebration and we had such a great time with all of you! Let's do it again!

  • Heather and her team did an incredible job. Not only was the food excellent, as expected, but the bar service was fantastic. We were particularly blown away by the presentation of the bar, dessert table, appetizers, table settings, etc. There we so many great details that make it clear that the team takes a lot of pride in their work! If you share your vision with Heather, she will make it happen! From a planning perspective, Heather was a huge value add as well. She calmly solved minor problems as they came up, and did a GREAT job of managing the itinerary and general flow of the party. We had a truly perfect weekend, and are SO glad we worked with the BHCC team.

  • Just wanted to give a big shout out to Bar Harbor Catering Company! I am a wedding planner (fern & flair weddings and events) and worked on my first wedding with them this past weekend. Meg was leading the event and did a fantastic job. Meg and the whole team were on top of everything. Helping put the final details together and fulfilling all of the wedding party and my requests. There is not one critique I would have for them. The performance and service seemed flawless. Not to mention the food was amazing. All the guests loved it including the vendors. Definitely one of the most professional companies I have had the opportunity to work with. They really went above and beyond going out of their way to add special service like bringing plates of appetizers on the trolley for the wedding party who had to go off to photos during cocktail hour. So thoughtful! Great job guys! Hope to work with you again in the near future!

  • Bar Harbor Catering was a dream to work with for our wedding. From initial contact, to tasting, to day of services they were extremely professional and supportive. We used BHC for the wedding catering and ‘month of’ coordinator. Both were excellent in helping us get the wedding that we were hoping for. For reference we were a relatively small wedding at ~60 guests. Catering: BHC helped us craft an entirely vegan wedding day menu. This included table snacks, grazing menu, and entrees. All were excellent and we’ve had many compliments to the food. The food was one of our biggest concerns and they executed flawlessly. For drinks we went with beer wine + a signature cocktail which were also served without issue. Note: They were able to accommodate several additional dietary restrictions without issue and went out of their way to identify and take care of these guests. Planning: Heather assisted with our planning and she has clearly built relationships in the commun... Read more

    Thank you so much, Enrique! It was such an honor to be a part of your and Claire's wedding day - you both (along with your lovely friends and family!) made the entire planning process super easy and enjoyable. Congratulations to you both!

  • We had a unique situation where another catering company we had lined up fell through a month before our wedding date. Stressful to say the least. Thankfully, Mandy and her team from Bar Harbor Catering Company were still available, and they more than delivered, helping us create the type of menu we wanted, and even threw in some thoughtful surprise touches. They clearly aim to please, and they did. The food was flavorful, sophisticated, and cooked to perfection. They elevated seemingly simple sounding dishes to a fine dining experience. The service was outstanding, too -- the servers Mandy hires are all professional and they did a really outstanding job and helped facilitate the flow of our reception, allowing us and our guests to enjoy the evening. Our guests were raving about several of the dishes, and wanted recipes (particularly the carrots!). We are actually grateful our first caterer fell through, so we could have Bar Harbor Catering Co. instead!

  • Bar Harbor Catering Company is more than just food -- they are amazing at planning events and coordinating with other vendors. The service they provide is outstanding (we even had guests mention that our bartenders were awesome)! The food is unreal. We had guests asking if the passed appetizers were the main course because they were soooo good! I would highly recommend the BHCC for any event where you want top notch food and service to match!

  • We wanted a no-fuss, family-style dinner for our wedding (130 guests) that didn't leave out the vegetarians and left no one hungry-- and Bar Harbor Catering was absolutely perfect. From the cocktails and appetizers to the desserts, everything was delicious (their whoopie pie is seriously the best I've ever had!). We worked with Jennifer, and she was so responsive and accommodating throughout the whole process. Their professionalism and attention to detail is extraordinary-- we can't recommend them highly enough!

  • Hiring Jennifer and the Bar Harbor Catering Company team was one of the best decisions we made during the whole wedding planning process. Food and drinks are one of the biggest ticket items on each wedding so it is easy to be tempted to try to save as much as possible here. Bar Harbor Catering Company was worth every dollar we paid and more! Jennifer was extremely helpful in helping us meet our budget while still putting together a fantastic meal that had gave us enough flexibility to tailor it to our taste and event. Working with Jennifer and the team the days before the wedding was a pleasure and the whole team went above and beyond to make our wedding day perfect for us. They were so much more than just a catering company, it almost felt like they were our day of wedding planners and I am still blown away how beautiful they put everything together. If you are planning a wedding in Bar Harbor look no further, hire Bar Harbor Catering Company and know you are in the best hands!

  • We can never thank Jennifer and the crew from Bar Harbor Catering company enough for the amazing job they did at our daughter's wedding (Sept. 2017). Everything was even more beautiful than we had imagined and they were a huge part of that. Their staff was very professional, attentive, hard-working and the food, well the food was indescribably delicious. From the very beginning with the first site visit to the tasting event (!!), to the beautiful atmosphere, to the great cleanup job, everything was just perfect. If we ever have another wedding on our property in Maine, the first call we make will be to Bar Harbor Catering!

  • We loved working with Jennifer and team at Bar Harbor Catering! Our reception concept was a bit non traditional - we wanted a casual/fun cocktail party feel. BHC really delivered with flexible station concepts and awesome appetizers. Highly recommend the salad station, flatbreads and oyster sliders. Also the pie! Throughout the process the team was very responsive, professional and thoughtful. Thanks so much!

  • Mandy and her team helped to save our "marriage in a maelstrom!" We were married during a terrible big storm and Mandy's staff were so kind and helpful to us and all our guests during the madness; they held curtains and umbrellas, rushed around in the rain, made sure my husband and I both ate a full meal and helped us stay on schedule. She served a fabulous Ottolenghi-inspired dinner that I had requested but it truly went above and beyond what I had dreamed. Everything was absolutely delicious and she did a great job of providing a dairy-free meal with lots of GF and Vegan options. We were never able to attend a tasting, which was nerve-wracking, but I needn't have worried. She made a difficult situation into a magical and unforgettable experience, for which I will be forever grateful.

  • We worked with BHCC this past summer to plan our daughter's wedding and Wow! We couldn't have been more pleased with the service, the level of professionalism, the yumminess of the food. The entire planning and execution process was easeful and fun. They made it look easy.

  • Finding a caterer for my wedding was probably the thing that scared me the most when I was planning. My husband and I are both vegan, so we knew we'd want all vegan food at our wedding. However, we were planning from far away, so not being able to go to tastings or meet with caterers adds an extra challenge. BHHC went absolutely above and beyond to ensure our food was nothing short of spectacular. Jennifer was always very responsive to my likely obnoxious amount of questions and menu changes! On the day of, since it was a small affair, we were able to get the food dropped off and also borrow some warmers and trays. She even came and picked them up the next day. The food was absolutely delicious. I didn't have a single complaint about how anything turned out. I couldn't have been happier with the service we received and how accommodating they were with our somewhat unique request.

We had an elegant/glam wedding with Disney touches and Bar Harbor Catering went above and beyond with the Disney touches that I know our guests will be talking about literally FOREVER!!! Thank you VERY much!!!

  • We had used Bar Harbor Catering Company for our wedding in Maine over Memorial Day weekend this year due to rave reviews from our wedding location and online. Unfortunately, we were underwhelmed by the product that was delivered to our party. The best part of the service was the passed appetizers which we had during cocktail hour between our ceremony and the reception, those were a hit for everyone. After much back and forth between pricing and food options before our wedding, we had spent the time to make sure we had confirmed food selections for all of our guests, as we opted out of doing a buffet-style meal and instead did plated service. All of our guests had their proper food request shown on their cards, though the entire staff went around asking each of our guests what they wanted after serving an hour later than planned. It was not them confirming meal selections, but rather almost disregarding the work that had been put in. Additionally many guests said that they were not rea... Read more

    Good afternoon Melanie, I appreciate you taking the time to share your experience, and I’m both saddened and surprised to hear that it was so negative. I’ve built a company on the premise that good enough isn’t enough, and we always aim to exceed the expectations of each and every client we work with. I sincerely apologize that in your case, we failed. I am thrilled that your day overall was a positive one, and that you found our staff to be friendly, helpful, and the appetizers delicious. During the planning process, we usually spend a lot of time educating our clients on exactly what to expect on their wedding day and try to be as transparent as we can throughout that process. The need for rental cooking equipment is part of how we are able to serve restaurant quality cuisine, in any location, and the cost of which is something we communicate to each client repeatedly: verbally, in our written contract, directly after booking as the first step in our planning process, and many times throughout the process as menus and other event details change. Clearly, in your case, our communication was not as clear as we usually strive for it to be. We are currently reviewing our processes to be sure that no client is confused or surprised during the planning with this or any other aspect of our service. We thoroughly enjoy working with our couples to create events that incorporate their vision, creativity, and hard work. We would never intentionally disregard the efforts that you contributed, especially the place cards that were created. Checking a meal order is a point of service that we use to ensure that all guests' orders are correct and we have found this to be a valuable tool for creating prompt and streamlined service. In our experience, even with place cards, some orders undoubtedly change, and for this reason, our servers take a few moments to check in with the guests at their tables to double check their order. This formality is usually unobtrusive and brief and is never intended to degrade any of the efforts of other members of the vendor team, and most importantly, the couple themselves. Our highest priority over the past 10 years and nearly 1,000 events has and will always continue to be exceeding the expectations of our clients and their guests. We know that weddings, in particular, are once in a lifetime events and we do not take our commitment to treat them as such lightly. I thank you for your feedback and welcome the opportunity to talk with you more so that we can be sure to correct these issues on our end, especially as we head into the 2019 season. Best Regards, Mandy Fountaine Owner, Bar Harbor Catering Company
