  • We called Bartenders Express while planning our backyard wedding because we had seen the level of service at a friends graduation party. Our Bartender and Server, Andrea and Lisa worked their butts off with a pleasant smile all day. We won’t hesitate to use them again or highly recommend there service to all.

  • My husband and I were extremely pleased with the service we received from John and Bartenders express. From the planning process to the day of our wedding, they made everything very easy and seamless. Even thought it rained on our wedding day, they made sure that our bar was set up and our guests were happy. Our Bartenders, Jen and Cory were amazing, fast and super friendly. All of Our guests commented on how impressed they were. We couldn’t have been happier with everything and will definitely use this company again.

    Thank you, Katherine, this was the first time Bartenders Express served at this smaller venue at The Bridgeport Zoo, and it worked perfectly for your wedding. Sean and Anne both commented on the room, and it allowed them the ability to connect with everyone all night, and it made for an enjoyable time for them as well. Thank you for their great review, and thanks to you and your guests for a perfect event.

  • We chose Bartenders Express to bartend our wedding and we couldn't have been more pleased with the process. The owner, John was great to work with and the bartenders, Franz and Rebecca showed up on time, were personable and the guests were happy with them. Franz and Rebecca served over 150 people and there was never a line.

    Franz, Rebecca and I all thank you for the great review. You had a beautiful day for your wedding, and we are glad we were able to contribute our services to your big day. We are proud to offer our Bar Set Up Package, it takes all the guesswork out of your shopping for your bar, and save you time and money as well. Congratulations again, and we hope to be serving your friends and family again for many years.

  • John was extremely professional and responsive from my first inquiries into Bartenders Express. The week before my wedding, one of the bartenders/servers reached out to me several times to make sure they knew exactly what I wanted. On the night of my wedding I had several guests come up to me and say how fast and friendly the bartenders were. I would definitely use Bartenders Express again and recommend them. Pricing was very reasonable as well! Thank you John, Kim, and Jessica!

    Thank you Amy, Kim and Jessica both commented on how gracious and how genuinely nice everyone was as well. It's always great when the staff is having as much fun as the guests we serve are having, and your event was one of those nights. Thank you again for this nice review and for choosing Bartenders Express.

  • We used Bartender Express for my daughter's wedding reception. They were extremely pleasant, professional and helpful. I received many, many comments from my guests on how great the "staff" was!!! I would recommend them to anyone and hire them again in an instant!!!! Their fee included all mixers, ice and cups, as well as two or three bartenders. They gave me a shopping list for alcohol based upon the number of people attending. The whole experience with Bartenders Express was drama and stress free!!! They added to the quality of our reception!

    Thank you for the great review, and we are also proud to offer our Bar Set Up Package, it allows us one more service to provide, and take the guesswork our of the proper amount and types of mixers needed for any given event. This was also our first event at Pinewood Lake, and we hope to go there again, beautiful spot for a beautiful wedding.

  • First off the owner was a pain to deal with as it wasn’t until a week and a half before our wedding that he finally got his paperwork into the venue which includes his insurance. Once at the wedding one bartender was hungover and sluggish, the other didn’t know his pours to the point where we got multiple complaints on both of them. We supplied our own booze and they were supposed to supply the mixers in which they ran out of coke and sprite to where I had back up in my car because of having it for the rehersal dinner, they ran out of water, and had to rashen other mixers in fear of running out of that as well. As for the booze we have multiple opened bottles of the same thing opened, it would be understandable if maybe there was two as people may be ordering the same thing and a busy bar but 4 of the same wine half to 3/4 full is ridiculous. Also telling guests that they had ran out of stuff because they hid it for some reason. In the fact end they also tried to take home the ope... Read more

  • We used John and his team for our wedding on 5/19/18 and it was perfect! Myself and my coordinator were in touch with John in the months leading up to the event and he always got back to us promptly. He also was able to work with me on some special requests about the wine/beer/toast, which was great! On the day of the event, he had a problem getting ice due to power outages/storm damage, but I never knew, I only found out afterwards! The day of the wedding the bartenders were super attentive, my glass was never empty! They were also great about making sure empties were picked up and everything looked great. If you are looking for a professional bartending staff for your upcomoming event, I would highly reccomend you check out Bartenders Express!

  • My husband and I worked with John for our wedding last month in October. At times it was difficult to connect with him via phone or email, which made things a bit tricky for us when planning because we were coming from quite a distance out of town. However, he was able to eventually answer all of our millions of questions we asked him and was very accommodating with what we envisioned for our wedding. When we asked him for some recommendations for our signature cocktail he was able to support us in finding the perfect cocktail for our special day. During the event John and the entire bar-tending team were all very personable and approachable. All of our guests had nothing but positive things to say about their drinks and the service they provided. The owners of our venue also commented on how wonderful they were to work with! At the end of the night Bartender Express even helped to clean up our tables and rented glassware, which was really going above and beyond. Overall, they were gr... Read more

    Thank you, Amanda, Jen, Cory, Ryan and I all enjoyed your wedding day, the weather could not have been better. Yes, you are correct, over the course of the 18 months we communicated through emails and phone conversations, we did have some challenges. This wedding was celebrated in a beautiful venue, Bliss Farm in Granville, Massachusetts, and it was our first time serving out of state. The challenge for us was checking on every single aspect of your requests, to be sure we could guarantee every detail to the tee, while also ensuring the venue was informed as well. This was also our first time negotiating through Massachusetts state and local liquor regulations, and this was a lesson learned as well. It was a great experience for us, and it sounds like in the end, we were able to deliver every single request. Again, our staff thanks you for all the kind words, and we all thank you for choosing Bartenders Express as well.

  • Used this company for our wedding reception this past weekend. The selection left much to be desired. We asked several times if they were going to serve liquor in which they told us they were only to find out when they arrived that they only brought a pretty sad selection of beer and wine. Also were going to charge us an outrageous amount for ice so we opted to bring our own. They asked for 300 lbs and probably only barely used 80 lbs. The only reason the overall rating is that high is because they were polite and showed up on time. If we could do it again, we would've gone elsewhere for our bartending services.

    responded with the following comments.

    I apologize, we were under the impression from phone discussions it was strictly a beer and wine bar request, perhaps the contract could have been worded clearer to have avoided that issue. For that, I am sorry for the misunderstanding. But we have found through our years of service, Bud Light is the number 3 seller in the world, Corona the number 5 seller in the United States, and Sam Adams is traditionally the top craft brewers in the United States. While all beer preferences are different across the board, this is usually the best guideline we have to go by. I am glad you had great service, however, and I hope we can offer some service modification or discount in the future that will help rectify this rating.
