  • I cannot highly enough recommend Mike Lund and his team. They went over the top to provide excellent service at our wedding and were incredibly thoughtful in providing grandparents with their food first, making sure my husband and I got food and drinks, and their overall hospitality. They went above and beyond helping to set up our venue, running out to get missing ingredients, and making sure everything went smoothly on our big day. I seriously cannot thank them enough for all that they did. If I could give them more than 5 stars, I would!

  • We used Mike Lund for our wedding on 8/25/2018. Him, his chef James, and his staff were professional, courteous, and a pleasure to work with. His staff always made sure that my husband and I always had a drink and that we were fed enough food. The food was also amazing and a crowd pleaser! We went with a buffet style dinner and had chicken as our main dish. We never ran out of food which was great. We also decided on biodegradable/compostable utensils, plates, napkins, cups, etc. which he offered as an option. It was easy clean up and it worked well for our outdoor country venue. I highly recommend his catering services (and trying his restaurant for lunch!). You won't be disappointed! Thanks again!

  • Mike Lund runs a top notch operation. Not only will he work with you to create the ideal menu for your wedding or event, but the food will be delicious. He will bring ideas you might not have thought about, and go out of his way to make your day incredible. He handles the chaos of an event with utmost professionalism. At my wedding, he made a point of ensuring the bride and I got to taste all of his scrumptious creations and that we along with the wedding party got first dibs when food was served. He manages a great staff and makes very high quality food. I cannot say enough about how comfortable and calming knowing Mike was in charge of the catering. His brisket, Mac and cheese, mini oyster po boys and butternut squash soup were just the items that topped my list of favorites from my wedding, but all his food is without a doubt delicious. I cannot say enough that Mike Lund provides premier catering service in every aspect of the business.

  • I simply can't say enough good things about Mike Lund Food. Mike and his entire staff were an absolute joy to work with and their food is some of the best we have ever tasted! When we found Mike Lund Food, we were blown away by how much thought was put into their food and cooking, as well as how amazingly delicious all of it was. Mike put together a sample menu based on what I’d told him we wanted and it was absolutely perfect. Mike is all about sourcing local ingredients and even helped create options for vegetarians/vegans. If an experienced, talented, realistic caterer is a priority for your wedding, Mike is the man. After tasting his food, you’ll know why we recommend him to any and everyone!

  • Do not think twice about hiring Mike Lund to be a part of your wedding team. From my first conversation with Mike, I knew that this was a conscientious man who had an appreciation for quality food and the preparation of it. My daughter-in-law to be had recommended Mike to me after he had catered a meal for her company, which just happens to deal with destination weddings. She and I went to Mike Lund's restaurant in Staunton, VA to sample some of his food and get his suggestions for the rehearsal dinner. We left believing that this was the caterer we wanted. Planning a destination wedding was a daunting task since you feel out of your element. You are in unfamiliar territory depending on recommendations and vendors you do not have any experience with. Let me just say that Mike Lund put all fears to rest. He made everything about the rehearsal dinner special. This young man takes control with professionalism, yet he is such a great guy to be with.

  • Mike Lund was amazing, just the most perfect wedding caterer we could have asked for. We knew we wanted to hire him as soon as we did a tasting at his restaurant because he makes really delicious and creative food using many locally-sourced ingredients. We loved working with him because he was so thoughtful, flexible, and always well prepared, a consummate professional. He asked all the right questions for event planning and when we made some idiosyncratic menu requests he fulfilled them cheerfully. He hires good catering staff, too--all the servers at our wedding were efficient, practiced, and helpful. Mike is a great person to work with, passionate about the work he does, and willing to go above and beyond. For one example, he saw one of my elderly and disabled guests struggling to walk up a slope at my wedding site and he went over and personally helped her. For another example, when my officiant praised one of the wines Mike served and asked for the name of it, Mike didn't just sen... Read more

  • Mike Lund was incredible to work with. From the very beginning he is so approachable and reads a couples style and tailors the menu to fit them. We already knew his food was fantastic but had not spent as much time working with him and could not have been more pleased. He even let us store our own desserts we made in his freezer when we didn't have one they would fit in. He is flexible, reliable, friendly, and listens to his client. Many vendors in the wedding industry assume a lot instead of listening but that is not the case with Mike. We highly suggest having lunch at his restaurant to get a feel for his style----unique high quality food in a warm inviting environment. He will not disappoint for a formal or casual event---he will impress everyone and our guests are still talking about how incredible our food was!!

  • When planning our wedding catering was one of the most important aspects. Mike Lund, James (his partner) and his team delivered above and beyond expectations from initial communication to planning the menu to the big day. Everything was seamless and perfect. The food was phenomenal. Everything was fresh and well prepared and timed perfectly. It was one of the hottest days during our wedding and James and the staff were troopers, they didn't even seem bothered by the heat. I can't say enough good things about Mike Lund and his team. Mike Lund and his staff were all knowledgeable, helpful and professional. I highly recommend using Mike Lund food for your catering needs.

  • We can't imagine our reception without Mike Lund and his staff. Local and sustainable agriculture is important to us. Food is important to us. We live in Brooklyn and couldn't coordinate a tasting so it was a bit of a gamble, but boy did it pay off! He pulled together appetizers and a buffet from our disparate ideas -- tacos, Polish food, ethically sourced meat -- into the perfect meal. The dressed-up taco bar featuring Polyface farm chicken was such a hit that people are still asking if we can get them the slaw recipe. The slaw! And my Eastern European family loved the pierogi appetizers so much they asked if his name is really Lund and not Lundski. All in all, he exceeded expectations. Working with him was easy. We explained our ideals and not much else. "I'm Polish, we like tacos, and it has to be local." Mike and his partner James crafted a wonderful menu from our vagueries without fuss. When a hurricane descended on our wedding weekend, raining us out of our dream vineyard cere... Read more

  • Mike Lund and his team were a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend them. I've highlighted the main aspects of our wedding that Mike made amazing! - The Food - My wife and I had an all vegetarian wedding that blended Indian and Italian dishes. Mike came up with creative options for us and took our input to create amazing dishes: heirloom tomato, watermelon, and homemade mozzarella salad; quinoa & chickpea salad, summer veggie lasagna, Mediterranean orzo stuffed roasted peppers, and a curry spiced squash risotto. Mike also made amazing passed hors d'oeuvre that included fried squash blossoms, gazpacho shooters, aloo tikki, and a few more. From scratch, Mike experimented and perfected our desserts: mini tiramisu cupcakes and chocolate rugelach to name only a few. Our guests still tell us that the food at our wedding was the best they have ever had! - The Service - Mike will stop at nothing to make sure you are happy. He went out of his way to make sure I enjoyed the Ch... Read more

  • It was clear from my first phone call with Mike that he has an amazing passion for food. He asked what I had in mind for my menu, and when I admitted I wasn’t sure yet, asked what kind of food I like to eat and what flavors I enjoy- and from that conversation dreamed up a brand-new, perfect-for-us entree, and I was sold. He emphasizes fresh, local produce and proteins and his relationships with local vendors mean he’s working with really high-quality ingredients- and he knows how to make them shine. Our tasting at Lundch was an exceptional meal and Mike took notes on our thoughts to help develop our well-balanced, personalized, absolutely delicious menu. He was endlessly flexible, including adapting our menu plans from fall to spring when we moved our wedding date and adjusting portions to include four rather than three sides to round out the buffet. On the wedding day, the food was just as delicious as we expected and we had high praise from our guests, including a lot of happy v... Read more

  • Mike was a joy to work with and have be part of our wedding in such a big way. He truly incorporated every element we shared were important to us and made sure everyone included in the process was heard and comfortable. He is brilliant as an inventor and artist of food dishes. His food services were not only delicious but also so thought out and personal. They matched the other details of our wedding. We wanted a unique food experience for our wedding and we got that ten fold. His staff were wonderful, friendly, prompt, attentive, and professional. Mike truly went above and beyond our expectations and worked so hard to make such a memorable impact at our wedding.

  • I was delighted, as the bride, to have a team as accommodating as Mike Lund's. Typically, I heard bride's recall that they were too delightedly distracted to eat appetizers at their own wedding. Mike Lund and his wonderful crew reserved appetizers specifically for me, to ensure I could try everything from our wedding menu. We had a southern style theme -- shrimp and grits, mini oyster po' boys, brisket, truffle mac n' cheese, dessert cupcakes topped with peanuts -- the food exceeded our expectations! Mike was also the caterer for my sister's wedding, with a very different menu than ours (and a different time of year), but the meal had wonderful flavor and variety. The food was really fresh and the dishes were creative. I was amazed to watch Mike and his team working so efficiently, in a manner that appeared to be seamless. I highly recommend Mike Lund Food, it was a pleasure to both eat (and serve!) their food.
