  • Sam and her team worked tirelessly to make sure our wedding went off without a hitch. The food was incredible, and Sam kept in contact with us continuously. They set everything up and tore it down in no time. Their expertise was irreplaceable, especially through unprecedented weather insanity. Sam made the night unforgettable, even through having a baby and planning her own wedding!

    Thank you for the review! We are delighted to hear you you had a great experience, despite the cold and snow. Thank you for letting us be a part of your special day!

  • We booked a buffet-style dinner with china, silverware, and glasses provided by Corky's. Their value was phenomenal! We've used their services before for other family events and their food is always delicious! They had plenty of food for the amount of guests we had, plus seconds and leftovers! Our coordinator was very responsive to emails/calls since we live out of state. She was also very flexible for meeting times/ tasting. The staff was also able to recheck decorations at the venue to make sure everything was set the right way.

  • Corky's was wonderful to work with! All of our guests were raving about the food at the wedding and their service was amazing! They worked well with my parents and listened to what I wanted as well! It was also really cool to have the same caterer that my parents used at their wedding, cater my wedding 30+ years later!

  • Cork was absolutely amazing!!! They made everything as stress free as possible and made us feel like we had nothing to worry about. They took care of everything! The food, the setup, passed appetizers, dinner, teardown/cleanup...everything was wonderful! I specifically remember Marta making sure I had wine or food or whatever I needed at any time! She was amazing! We received several compliments from guests as to how great they were. I would choose Cork as our caterer over and over again! I would recommend them to anyone!

  • The folks here are wonderful. We actually ordered from the "Corky's" menu which is more family style foods at a much cheaper price-point. We thought the food was outstanding, and we had compliments from everyone about how great it was. The staff was attentive and kind. We couldn't have asked for better caterers! They also provided tables, chairs and flushing portable toilets (our wedding was outdoors and we had too many people for the bathrooms on site). Everything was handled with care and was overall excellent.

  • I had a hard time deciding what to rate this. We had some bumps in the road with Corky's for sure, but everything turned out well in the end. My then fiance (now husband) and I decided to use Corky's as our caterer for the wedding. My consultant was Sam. She was overall very nice and helpful. She did take awhile to respond at times, though, so you may have to keep on her. The tasting went well. We, and the parents, thought it was great. Everything was going relatively fine until the last week. When we got the final invoice, it was for almost $1,000 now our original quote. Apparently, chair cover and sashes were left off originally. Mind you chair covers had been discussed during our very first conversation, at the tasting and at the walk through. Since I couldn't get ahold of our consultant, I had to talk to her manager. The manager was not helpful, and basically made it seem like this was my fault and what did I expect. After an EXTREMELY stressful day of back and forth,... Read more

  • Bigger drop off in quality of food between tasting and event than we were expecting. Easy to work with, though, and very responsive to us.

  • We had Corky's cater our wedding with 170 guests at the South Shore Cultural Center. Their staff, especially Kristina, was professional and responsive to all our inquiries. The food was among the best we tried during our tastings with five caterers and their prices were very reasonable. We especially appreciated the availability of children's meals and gluten free meals. Corky's also helped us rent high chairs. Our guests enjoyed the food and really loved the ice cream bar. We were very impressed with the way Corky's staff set up our reception. Overall, we were very pleased and would recommend Corky's to others.

  • Corky's is a bang for not so much buck. I had only ONE complaint out of 215 people, and that is pretty amazing. The food was good, they accommodated our needs and were nice! The only possible tip would be for them to add a little bit to the portions on the buffet line. The buffet was yummy and satisfied people from at least 5 continents who attended our wedding!

  • Corky's catered our wedding (~160 guests) this past weekend, and the food was delicious! As someone who is typically not a fan of wedding food, I was really impressed with their dishes. Guests also raved about the food after the wedding. In addition to taste, their catering was very affordable. Corky's beat out the prices of every caterer we had previously looked at and worked very hard to stay within our budget. We did a double take on the final cost; it was a steal! Other places would have charged double for the amount of food (especially proteins) they cooked for our wedding.

  • I'm having a hard time figuring out how to rate Corky's. There are a lot of good things to say but a few negatives. Overall, the wedding was a success, so I can't be too mad about anything now, but a few things could have gone better. Pros: Food. The food was actually really good. We heard that Corky's is one of the few "suburban" catering companies whose food rivals a city caterer for a fraction of the cost. That was definitely true. We got a lot of compliments on the food. Price. I contacted A LOT of caterers, and was finally recommended Corky's by a friend of mine who does wedding planning. Definitely the cheapest, by a long shot. We had a holiday wedding so everything was time and a half and extra expensive, but they still got us in under our budget. So I guess those are the biggies. But some things I had trouble with: Contact. I dealt with 2 different sales people, bc my first girl took a new job halfway through the planning process. So some things got a little confused. ...

  • We used Cork Catering for our wedding. We loved all the food at the tasting and the estimate came close to our original budget, so we booked them after getting several other quotes. They accommodated several menu changes leading up to our wedding day. The night of our wedding- the staff was amazing and my parents especially were so impressed with how much they helped with decoration set-up and take down, serving food, etc. They had a very efficient team on-site. We had a buffet service but staff members brought my husband and I our dinner at our sweetheart table so that we wouldn't have to go to the buffet line. That definitely made us feel like the king and queen of the party :) The only thing they forgot was to bring us a piece of cake before our guests devoured all of it! Leading up the wedding, Cork was slow to respond to phone calls and emails (or just didn't reply at all) and that made the process more stressful for me as the bride/sole wedding planner. I think they made... Read more

  • Corky's has good reasonable food for family party's. Have heard that you do not want to tell a vendor that it is a wedding or the prices will inflate? That's how this was. My hubby to be was suppose to price out food. We had both used Corky's for graduation and other family parties-- good food. Well since we were doing a DIY venue we wanted to just price out how much things would be if we wanted to use there wait staff ect--- but we planned to just really get food from them and hire some waitresses on the side to put out the food and clear dishes. Anyway---- we got transferred to the WEDDING planner who quoted us almost 40K for food/dishes/wait staff ect. We then wanted prices for just food and plastic dishes and he kept not returning calls, telling us he had a responsibility to our venue ect. Ultimately we called the regular phone number, placed an order for drop off with upgraded plates and pastic wear and napkins without logos. It all worked out fine but frustrating. We got...
