  • I cannot say enough good things about Conner Catering. Without a doubt, this was the best choice we made. During the entire process, Don and Taylor were amazing. When we first toured the Old Mill and met with Don, he was very helpful. My family has very little experience planning weddings, so he helped guide us. After we booked, Taylor and Don were great with details and giving us suggestions. Without their expertise, the wedding would not have gone as well as it did. The day of the wedding, things got a little messed up because 95 was shut down-- delaying the wedding party 1.5 hours. Don was very flexible and made sure everything was okay to extend an hour. The food was AMAZING. We received so many compliments about the food. During the process, we were worried about staying under budget for food, but still having a tasty meal. Don was very aware of our budget and made sure we got the best possible meal. Everything is very customizable, so you do not sacrifice quality at all. ... Read more

  • When I tell you that Donald and his team did everything they possibly could to make our wedding day perfect, I am not exaggerating! He patiently answered my questions (all 3,000 of them) during the whole process. He was very hands on with tons of helpful advice! He really knows his stuff and his suggestions helped to make our day amazing!! The venue at the Old Mill is just beautiful!! Donald got new pieces for the center of our stationary hors'd' oeuvres, the floor was freshly painted, and the inside reception area came to life once the place settings were put in place!! Since we made the centerpieces and all the decorations ourselves, Donald was very accommodating, allowing us to enter early and set up. It was so hot that day, that he even moved one bar inside to help our guests feel comfortable and beat the heat. His staff was on the ball and very kind, pleasant, and helpful to all of our guests. In addition to the above, the review wouldn't be complete if I didn't mention... Read more

  • Donald and his staff at Conner Catering were amazing. They were very helpful from start to finish. This was our first wedding that we had to plan so we had plenty of questions which they answered with ease, The paperwork and contract was very professional and easy to follow. Meeting with Donald to discuss food options was also very simple. He offered his suggestions and the final result was a wedding everyone loved hor devours that were amazing and a meal that was delicious. The entire night was just perfect and we cant thank Donald and his crew enough. Trust me you wont be disappointed with Conner Catering and the Old Mill which was beautiful. Bill Haines

  • Shawna Felder My Husband & I were married at the stunning Merion Tribute House; from their exclusive catering list we choose Conner Catering (a FULL service, family owned catering company) definitely a wise and smart decision, we could not have been happier. Elegant environment, phenomenal food plus impeccable service equaled money well spent. Conner Catering specializes in various types of reasonably priced cuisine. My Husband and I were ok picking appetizers on our own (smile) but when it came to selecting our main dish for the evening, we were truly indecisive and in need of help. We worked closely with Donald, who knows this trade well and exhibits great culinary talent. He did a wonderful job helping us customize our reception menu. I must admit we did not have a tasting in advance of the wedding, but we did not need one, we received numerous compliments, guest raved about how FRESH and DELICIOUS the food was. Many were definitely impressed with the grand selection o... Read more

  • Catering takes up substantial portion at your wedding, and you definitely want to make sure it is perfectly set up. When I first walked in for open house event at Merion Tribute House, I was very impressed by hors d'oeuvre presented by Conner Catering. Not only they have the best presentation of plates, but also they offer such a variety of hors d'oeuvre menu selections without any extra charge. This made us to have a wide selection of foods without having to go through buffet option. In addition to their amazing presentation of foods, professional staffs, clean working environments, I personally loved to have Donald Conner to be our caterer because he helped us a lot to narrow down the wedding details. He gave honest opinions and a lot of suggestions when we needed based on his years of experience in the wedding industry. At our wedding, we heard many and many compliments from guests that they enjoyed time at the cocktail hour and reception. The quality of foods were very good a... Read more

  • I'm so happy we got to have our wedding at The Old Mill. It was exactly what I was looking for in terms of aesthetics. We worked with Donald, who was great. He knew this venue was at the top of our budget, so he worked with us on ways to cut down the catering costs so it could work for us. He also helped us as the day got closer to make sure we had everything in order. He was responsive each time we have him a call. We also got to set up the Friday before our Saturday wedding (since there was no other event that night), which was a total life saver! We had our ceremony in the meadow (luckily the weather cooperated), cocktail hour in the pavilion/courtyard, and reception in the ballroom - everything was so beautiful! Also, all of the food was so tasty! One of the staff managers, Lena, personally brought us a sampler of all of our appetizers during cocktail hour because she knew the bride and groom don't really get to eat - it was so sweet!

  • Overall, we were pleased with Don and his team as they helped me put on my dream wedding at the stunning Old Mill in Rose Valley. Taylor was also extremely responsive throughout my year of planning, which I genuinely appreciated. On the day, our guests enjoyed everything: the food, service and venue. Originally we planned to have our ceremony outside but the weather was poor so Don help us move everything to the Pavilion which worked out even better. And if there was ever a problem, a solution was quickly proposed by Don. Thank you so much for your excellent service and sense of humor.

  • My Fiance and I just toured The Old Mill, one of conner catering's venues, this past week and fell in love. We met with Don Conner for our tour and had an all around wonderful experience. He was friendly, had a great sense of humor and made us feel completely at ease during the tour. We are terribly disappointed that the old mill did not have any Saturdays (except one) open for 2018 or else we would have booked it on the spot. We did however love Don and his whole approach to event planning and are now looking at other venues in which he works. We highly recommend this catering company off of our first impression alone!

    Wow, thank you Kristin and we're sorry The Old Mill wasn't available for your date. However, rest assured that no matter where your wedding is held, if you choose Conner Catering, Inc. you will still receive top-notch treatment, professionalism and incredible cuisine. Best, The Conner Catering Team

  • We're in the process of finalizing our booking with Conner Catering for our 2018 wedding at their venue, the old mill. We've been really impressed so far with the level of professionalism and responsiveness and feel confident that we are in great hands! Taylor has been wonderful with answering all of our e-mails and the millions of questions we've had so far and we're really excited to move forward with working with conner catering to plan our special day. We will update!

    Hello Melissa, Thank you for your Review and rest assured you will need that 6th Star to do your Review after your wedding! We are truly passionate about what we do and honestly do strive for perfection at every event which is why we insist on having our clients work directly only with Donald and Taylor, not a company "sales force". We look forward to working with you and planning your wedding day, and I know you will be awestruck....

  • He is obnoxious and unprofessional. Extremely difficult to work with. He ruined our wedding at The Old Mill, shut down our bars and would not let the DJ play music in the courtyard. Do not use him!

    responded with the following comments.

    Since we’re not quite sure who we are responding to, we can only respond with the facts of the evening as follows: Currently all caterers and venues are operating under incredibly strict rules issued through Governor Wolf and the Pennsylvania Department of Health. We currently answer to many different authorities regarding catering and hosting events and weddings, not just at The Old Mill, but everywhere in Pennsylvania. The facts of this event are as follows: • During the planning process this wedding did indeed change several times after meeting with Donald. Any changes made during this process were done with the client’s approval. The ever-changing mandates issued by the authorities dictates, even now, that all wedding and event planning must remain somewhat fluid in order to adhere to the changes in the rules issued by Governor Wolf; • Presently, we are operating under the mandate that there are only 25 guests permitted in the venue at the same time. All weddings and events are to be held completely outside. At all weddings and events, the entrances to the inside of the venues are monitored by personnel to adhere to this strict guideline and to ensure all guests are under mask, especially on the dance floor. Guests were not stopped from dancing but instead were informed that as per the incredible amount of signage and mask stations we set-up everywhere, masks were required on the dance floor. Those that wouldn’t comply were reminded by Security, the entire Conner Team and the DJ all night long. This rule was not a surprise by any stretch; • As clearly stated in the Venue Contract, amplified music is not permitted outside and that is no secret. The clients know this even before booking this venue; • Bars are not permitted inside which is why there were two bars outside in the small courtyard, in addition to the main bar outside where dinner service took place. When the wedding guests proceeded to extend the dancing into the small courtyard, we removed the existing bar product to another area because it turned into a dance area, and by law we can’t have alcoholic drink on the dance floor. Also, because of social distancing rules there was not enough room to have two bars, plus all of the people dancing in that area and still adhere to Social Distancing rules. This was done in order to allow the guests to continue dancing in this area; • Donald was not rude to any guest. While we all have to wear masks throughout the event, it is difficult to communicate and hear with the loud music and under mask. Requesting a guest to comply with the rules does not imply being rude, it is simply that one doesn’t like the message conveyed. The DJ made announcements and even he was confronted for following the rules; • Donald and the Conner Team set-up a complimentary Chilled Champagne Bar, Chilled Ice Water Station, and Cheese and Fruit Board in the Bridal Suite to welcome the bridal party and family upon their arrival. This was not ordered, it was a complimentary nod to welcome and congratulate the Bride and Groom. During this very strange time, our Team does everything possible to keep everyone safe and felt it was best to allow privacy for the safety of the Bridal Party; • While our Sanitizing Manager walked through the event site all evening wiping down all high traffic touch points, she was commended by many guests for our Team’s diligence to keep everyone safe and yet maintain the integrity of the beautiful wedding; • We had several guests that complimented the staff on our team and indicated that the food was outstanding , “not like wedding food”, and asked if we had a restaurant because it was that good; If you are implying that we were difficult and obnoxious because we insisted on following the rules, well, we think the better explanation would be that there was one person who wanted their own set of rules compromising the safety and well-being of others, and we were unwilling to fold under pressure. Not only are we concerned about the safety of all guests and our Team, including Vendors, but we also put an incredible amount of energy and focus on the guest experience and food, which by all accounts were amazing. After a meeting with our two floor managers and speaking with the DJ and wedding planner, by all accounts the guests at this wedding were incredibly happy and felt very safe. For the record, Donald checked with the Bride and Groom throughout the evening and they voiced their pleasure and gratitude, so we are sorry you have a lesser memory, but we honestly feel our Team and Donald went above and beyond. We don’t make the rules, but we do have an obligation to operate safely for our Clients, Guests, Team, Vendors and Community, and we are not willing to compromise everyone’s safety during this pandemic, despite repeated attempts to have our entire Team bend the rules that night, and we think it was totally irresponsible to even anticipate or repeatedly push that we would.

  • The catering staff was excellent, especially Lena, my day-of point person. My day ran so smoothly, I didn’t have to think about anything once I was there. Prior to the event I would have liked to communicate a little more frequently with Don or Taylor. And even though Taylor was our primary email contact, I never actually met her in person. We didn’t get a food tasting but everything was delicious. The base price was reasonable but the add-ons were a bit pricey (donut wall, departure stations)

    Hello Christina, Thank you for taking the time to review your experience with our team. We are so happy to hear that you were so pleased with the food, service and overall experience on your wedding day! Making your day stress-free and enjoyable is our #1 goal! It is disappointing to hear however that you felt as though there was not enough planning prior to actual event and you were dis-satisfied by our responsiveness. Looking over our email correspondence, it appears as though every email sent received a response within 24 hours. All meetings during the planning process took place as per our suggested timeline, however should have desired to meet at any point beyond what we suggested, we do wish you would have reached out. We would have been more than happy to meet with you at any point and however many times. In regards to pricing, as every event is customized it is always up to our clients to add speciality stations and/or touches at their discretion and within their budget. You are not locked into a package or required to have any of these optional add-ons, but rather have the freedom and flexibility to add them or not for your special day. Again, we thank you for your review and wish you much happiness in your new life together!

  • Don and his team were invaluable to us on our wedding day, as well as during the months leading up to it. Whenever I had a question or concern, Don himself would always be sure to contact me ASAP and personally address my needs. We had a few small concerns with the professionalism of one or two of his staff during the event, but this was also probably on me due to a lack of communication about setup and delegating tasks. Overall, we had a wonderful wedding thanks to Conner Catering -- and we were able to keep it within budget, which was a huge concern for us. Highly recommend!

  • The exclusive caterer of our venue, Conner Catering, who deals with booking the space, all of the set up, tables, linens, catering, etc. provided a great day of result. We had some issues with getting some responses back before we were within a month of our date, like a venue rule change that was our of their control and we were not informed of until only a few days before the wedding. But as soon as we got within a month of our date, I got intimidate calls back to emails, so other questions I had were sorted out quickly. Based on the high number of guests we had, there was little flexibility with table arrangement and style, but they did work with us for the set up we wanted regarding table numbering. The day of staff was great, and food came out promptly, and they catered to all of our guests' dietary restrictions, some of which can be difficult, which was very appreciated by us and our guests. All of the food we had was amazing, and we only got compliments regarding it all. They ev... Read more
