All I can say is WOW! My husband and I absolutely loved Classic Catering! From there BEAUTIFUL buffet set up to the AWESOME food, everything was flawless. We had their Champagne Chicken and KC Sirloin, roasted potatoes, and sauteed broccoli. Everything was fresh (THEY HAND... Read More CARVED THE STEAK!), colorful, smelled great and tasted even better. Their staff was what you would expect at a 5-star restaurant. Everyone was constantly cleaning and making sure our guests were accommodated. We had our own cake, but Beth ordered mini cakes for our guests from 3 Women and an oven. They were amazing! I'm still eating them 4 days later. Couldn't have asked for a better team! Thanks Beth. Austin, Devyn, and Chef Rey!

We used Classic Catering for our wedding, and we were very happy with our choice. Any issue that we had Bethany made sure to help us out with. Not only did she help, but she did so gladly even when my wife and I were not being too pleasant to deal with. Not only were they great...

The staff made sure we always had what we needed during our dinner without being too intrusive and the food was delicious. We had plenty of food leftover after the reception so of course we were eating leftovers for a few days. My wife and I agreed that, even reheated, the food tasted better than several restaurants we have been to.

Classic Catering comes highly recommended! We were, to be honest, a very big pain to deal with. I have 5 food allergies but wanted to enjoy everything on the buffet that day.

We felt like they were truly happy to be there and be a part of our wedding. I can't thank the Classic Catering team enough for their hard work and attention to our requests. Thanks!

Especially, I cannot thank you enough, Mary, that in spite of your own personal health issues, you were there, overlooking every detail. It meant so much to all of us!

Delicious food and wonderful people

Reviewed on 10/21/2015 Rachel A

I don’t think I’ve ever been to a wedding where people were still talking about the food when they left, but that’s what happened at our wedding. Mary and Doug were absolutely amazing to work with and their food is delicious! I may be one of the few brides who actually ate at... Read More my wedding, but the food we had sampled was so good, I wasn’t about to miss it. In fact, the catering staff served my husband and I plates with a little bit of everything (including the hors devours we missed while taking pictures) at the head table while everyone went through the buffet so we were able to have some time together to eat and talk about the ceremony. Turns out that was about the only 10 minutes we spent alone all night, so it was really nice to have that time. We met with Mary and Doug twice before the wedding and both times Doug had an amazing array of food for us to try. It was so hard to pick! We were able to use their wonderful menu as a base, but at the same time add some personal touches. Doug did a fantastic fruit carving for our cocktail hour to go with the appetizers. We are big barbeque fans, so Doug made his famous beef brisket but we brought several barbeque sauces from St Louis and Kansas City to go with it. We also had always wanted an ice cream sundae bar and Mary and Doug made it happen! That was definitely a crowd favorite! Since they have been doing this for a long time, Mary and Doug also bring a lot of expertise about weddings in general that was hugely helpful. Things that I would never have thought of, Mary always made sure to ask, even if it had nothing to do with catering. Most importantly for my husband and I, Mary and Doug really took the time to get to know us and were almost like an extra set of parents by the time we got to the wedding. We were so happy they could be part of our big day and have stayed in touch since then. If you are able to get Classic Catering for your wedding, you have found some incredible food and some equally amazing people.

We also had Classic Catering flip the venue space from wedding to dinner reception, and they executed that beautifully. I wish we had another daughter so we could do it all over again! I would certainly recommend them for any wedding or corporate event. Five stars to Classic Catering!

My daughter and son-in-law chose Classic Catering to cater their September 2015 wedding. As I was not involved in the selection process, I was not sure what to expect. I met Mary and her staff a few hours before the reception began as I was tending to some last-minute details. I... Read More was immediately impressed with their professionalism and attention to detail. Every member of the staff was friendly and performed beyond my expectations. I consider myself a "foodie" and am consistently underwhelmed by most dinners served at wedding receptions. The food prepared by Classic Catering was outstanding. The "bruschetta bar" was flavorful and beautifully presented with an assortment of seeded crackers and flatbreads. I found myself wishing I had eaten more later in the evening. Dinner was fantastic. There was a carving station with Kansas City Strip Steak and probably some of the best Smoked Turkey I have ever had. It was served with a Orange-Marmalade/Horseradish sauce that complimented it perfectly. The Roasted Vegetable Medley with Asparagus was cooked and seasoned perfectly, but my favorite item was the Roasted Fingerling Potatoes. They were cooked to perfection and seasoned with just the right amount of salt. The bartenders were great and set up the bar, including a Bloody Mary bar, exactly the way we had hoped with little direction. I would highly recommend Mary and her staff at Classic Catering to anyone planning an event in the Kansas City area.
