  • John and crew made the our wedding perfect. We changed from a Vermont wedding to our backyard due to Covid-19 and reached out to John 2 weeks ahead of time. In that time he chatted with us about menu/vibe we were looking for (made recommendations based on our thoughts) was amazingly helpful with us for gluten free and vegan guests and made a house visit to give us his thoughts for layout. Again all in two weeks! For day of, the food was amazing, the service was fantastic and everyone was so nice, and they truly made our day special. Couldn’t thank John enough and would recommend him to anyone for any event.

  • We took our time looking for a caterer for our wedding. From the initial inquiry to the final execution, J+L Catering was absolutely the right decision. Jim, our coordinator, went above and beyond to make sure our special day was just that, special. J+L offers a delicious menu, quality rentals and impeccable service. We originally planned for 100 people and ended up with 22 (due to COVID) and J+L was more than accommodating and didn’t miss a beat. On the day of the wedding, everything was flawless. From the cocktail hour, to the reception and the clean-up, the J+L team was polite, respectful of space and professional. The food – we are still talking about it today – was very delicious. We opted for 5 different cocktail hors d'oeuvres and a three course mean (entrées of chicken, salmon, veg and kids). Everything was executed to perfection – temperatures were appropriate, and taste was flavorful. We will absolutely consider J+L for any additional catering needs in the future.

  • John created a delicious lunch for my daughters 1st birthday. He was very responsive and thorough when it came to my order and her food allergies. Everyone enjoyed it and my husband and I really enjoyed the leftovers!

  • We’ve had a great experience with J&L catering two large family parties for us. The food is delicious and working with them has always been a pleasure. John has also helped us make determinations on the menu and his suggestions have been very helpful. I’m sure we will continue to call them for future events.

    Thank you so much! We always have a great time working with you and designing menus! Happy New Year!!

  • John was the best caterer we could have asked for. Throughout the planning process, he was always responsive, helpful and accommodating. He offered us the perfect menu with flexibility and excellent pricing. Day-of, the J&L team ensured everything stayed on schedule and went smoothly, took care of my gluten free guests, and personally handed out fresh cookies for dessert . We received tons of compliments on the food and were sent home with lots of delicious leftovers. I can't recommend J&L enough!

  • J&L did an outstanding job providing us with delicious food for our guests to enjoy at our outdoor wedding. Throughout the planning process, J&L were swift to respond to any questions we had. J&L were incredibly friendly and professional, reflecting a true pride in their work. We highly recommend J&L to cater any special event!

  • John and his team did a wonderful job catering our Bridal shower in June, 2019. He was extremely helpful during the planning process, helping us determine the right amount of food and a perfect mix of options for our large event. Everything ran extremely smoothly during setup and throughout the shower. His staff was attentive and efficient and he checked in with my wife and I throughout the day. Numerous guests remarked on the food and asked for his card so they could use him in the future Thank you John and team at J&L!

  • Hired John to cater a business mixer for about 20 to 30 people. His expertise and flexibility exceeded expectations. He understood the purpose of the event, made suggestions that helped make it a successful event and his prices were very reasonable. Its been my absolute pleasure to strongly recommend J And L Catering to anyone looking for a full service catering service.

  • When beginning the process of wedding planning I looked into the venue first, and then immediately began looking for a caterer. I had done a quick google search and found J&L Catering which to my surprise had lots of experience at my venue. John got in contact with us shortly after we contacted him. He is quick to reply to all questions and concerns, and went above and beyond to make sure our day became the best day of our lives. John put together an amazing Southern BBQ menu for us which included all our favorite BBQ selections such as baked mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, pulled pork, cajun vegetables, and jerk chicken. The mashed potatoes were so good my bridesmaid claimed a whole tray to herself on the ride back to the hotel on the bus. My husband and I often asked him for guidance around ordering plastic ware, dishes, glassware, and linens. John was able to tell us exactly what we needed and was open to us asking lots of questions. He recommended an amazing bartending service,... Read more

  • Like many brides, I began the tedious process of searching for a caterer for our upcoming wedding. I spoke to several catering companies that resided in the Boston area but their pricing for one night was far too expensive considering our wedding was going to span three full days for all guests. I continued to search for caterers and came across J&L Catering, which also happened to be local to me. Our first phone conversation went amazingly. John really understood my vision and was able to provide all the elements we needed for our three days (raw bar, carving station, and lobster bake). The pricing for all three days was fantastic. I was nervous that in order to meet such a great price, perhaps the food quality would be lacking. Boy was I wrong! We had our tasting of each of our three menus and everything was delicious, tender, juicy, and full of flavor. My fiancé and I were blown away with how amazing the food tasted. We could not have been more pleased with the final outcome for o... Read more

  • It was such a pleasure to work with John throughout our wedding planning process and ESPECIALLY on the day of our wedding. We would recommend him as one of our top vendors. It is a very close tie in praise between how amazingly good the food was and how professional and prepared his team was. All of the guests enjoyed the meal, which given our last minute changes due to weather, was an amazing improvisation by John to get all of the food out timely and everything was delicious. Picking our menu and doing our tasting was one of the best parts of the planning process and John made it so easy. He had excellent suggestions and was willing to talk through all of our priorities and wants for our day. The final result was a beautifully presented meal that everyone raved about. His team worked so hard the day of our wedding, but multiple guests commented on the positivity and joy they brought to the venue. Everyone was smiling and went above and beyond to provide excellent service. ... Read more

  • It was great working with John and his team at J & L Catering! The food was delicious, and John worked with us to create a menu that we were really excited about. We wanted "upscale BBQ," and John was able to make that happen within a very reasonable budget. He also gave us some great cost-saving tips when it came to our appetizers and our meal choices, which helped us have everything we wanted without spending a fortune. I appreciated that he was also realistic - when we mentioned wanting ice cream, he pointed out how messy that would be to serve given our outdoor August wedding. I liked that he was willing to say no to things that he knew he couldn't do well rather than just agreeing to things and then providing a subpar experience. John and his wife Laurel were also very responsive when it came to communication. Any time I emailed, one of them would respond within a few hours at most. They also worked with me to put together a rental order for all our dishes, silverware, linens, ... Read more

  • We hosted our Family Reunion in July 2018 & wanted it catered. Our group would be just 40 people. We did an extensive search & several interviews, some of whom were not very responsive or refused to do such a small gathering. When we reached out to John at J & L Catering, he was very responsive & excited to help us with our small affair which would be held in our garden. His menu options were many & outstanding, yet he was more than willing to make any changes & adjustments that we wanted. So, we added his fabulous Raw Bar & his Famous (most delicious) Chowder to one of his barbecue menus & never looked back! John was a joy to work with, responsive to all our questions & helpful with all our little details, right down to the decor theme. Our Reunion was a huge success. John & his staff were superb. The food was amazing & there was plenty of it. Our guests were impressed & happy. Thank you John & Crew for helping to make our Reunion such a perfect day!

  • John and his staff could not have been more accommodating for our wedding day!!! The food was fantastic and my guests are still talking about it more than a month after our wedding. It rained on our wedding day and it did not affect John at all which was very impressive to say the least. I would 100% recommend to use J&L Catering to anyone doing any sort of event. They give you so many options to chose from and help every step of the way. John even gave me tips on how to save some money in some areas and we could not have been more appreciative for all the help. Thank you again John you and your staff rocked and made our day even more special than we could have imagined!!!

  • John catered our wedding. He was receptive to our specific requests prior to the big day, although we wished it was executed a little differently when all was said & done. We envisioned an “endless appetizers and stations” meal delivery rather than a traditional plated meal. Perhaps we placed too much faith in John and his crew or perhaps our venue wasn’t as conducive to what we hoped for in terms of the kitchen space for the caterers to work/prepare the food and execute the plan. Overall, the experience was what we would consider average based on the price, service and quality of the food.

    Thank you for your review. However the reason I do disagree is that throughout and at the end of the night, I, and other members of my staff, received numerous compliments about the food and service, handshakes, and even hugs, from the guests, and Kaci and Alex. They continuously said what a great job we did. As I discussed with Kaci and Alex at the tasting, as far as a full meal’s worth of food for all guests, this was a cocktail party type of reception. We provided what they asked for and we were contracted for. We strive on trying to please all of our guests, and while we did everything we could to do so, and feel we did everything expected of us and more, we will take her comments to review our services. We wish Kaci and Alex the best.
