Green Mill was awesome. Sarah was fantastic and answered all my questions before I even had to ask them. I had switched to a gluten-free diet after already booking them and they made sure to work with me. And they event brought one gluten-free pizza late at night for me. The... Read More initial food tasting sold us. Everything was delicious and there were so many options. And the pricing was great for the quality we got. It was all just so easy from the start and we didn't even bother going our other tastings. We actually cancelled those and went with Green Mill right away. I would recommend Green Mill to anyone who wants a caterer who is organized, quick to respond, and has delicious food. And our guests were raving about the dinner options and late-night pizzas.

Highly Recommend! Sarah did a great job! From the tasting to the event I felt super comfortable. Sarah had all the details in order, so much so that on our wedding day she noticed the cake needed some help and touchups and had her staff fix it with frosting from the extra cake...

Insanely accommodating. We had our wedding at FIVE and GMC is housed out of there so all the food was fresh. Sarah worked with out dessert vendor, taking away one more thing for me to do.

Amazing food! We received a lot of compliments from guests on how good the food was. Although it all turned out great, there were several things that were discussed beforehand that were missed the day of. In addition, from what we saw, there was quite a bit of food left after... Read More everyone went through but no announcement was made to guests so no one went up for seconds. A couple people mentioned how hungry they were later and our late night pizza “went in record time” per a staff member. Just a bummer given how much expensive wedding food is . . . it would have been great to be able to utilize it all. We really appreciated that the staff member at the end of the night (I am sorry I didn’t ask her name) who helped with centerpieces.

We used Green Mill as our caterer this past weekend and could not be more pleased. We wanted a family style meal, which is one of the reasons we chose Green Mill. They served so much food that guests of mine who have all run events professionally texted during dinner to remark... Read More on how impressed they were! Not only was the quantity great, the quality was superb. We especially received a number of compliments on the beef and the spinach tortelloni. The service was excellent all night, and the table settings looked very classy. We loved having the option of colored napkins at no extra cost. Also, because we booked right after our tasting, Green Mill threw in free late night pizza delivery. This was a huge hit with our guests! The perfect way to end the night! Thank you, Green Mill!

Green Mill was amazing to work with from beginning to end. We were married at Lowertown Event Center on 10/21/17, and every contact or question from Green Mill was perfect from start to finish. They were so kind and easy to work with, and everything went off without a hitch!

The people we worked with and food we tried were all great, particularly the bar staff, they were very fun! Unfortunately, the day of our wedding they got both of the entrees that we had ordered wrong, however - their regional manager is working with us to make it right!

We used Green Mill catering for our September wedding. We opted for passed appetizers followed by plated meal (three choices) and late-night pizzas. Our initial meeting with Renee was perfect- we felt completely comfortable with the service we would receive and the food was... Read More outstanding. We even cancelled another tasting we had scheduled, to go with them. We loved everything we tried and had a hard time choosing our entrees. Prior to our wedding we were contacted by a different employee - Sarah, whom we met for our final meeting. We again felt good with the communication and while we received excellent comments on the food itself, there were some service issues that left us a little let down. During the setup, the night before, half empty salt and pepper shakers were set out on the table (very tacky) my daughters actually ordered salt and pepper through amazon to refill these the day of. The groom, who has a nut allergy, initially received the wrong entrée. When we found a server to get the correct entree, he was given the correct dinner, but with nuts. We again had to get a server’s attention and he was finally given the correct entrée, but with no potatoes - when I once again got the server there for the third time - she seemed annoyed and stated, “the note said no potatoes” to which I replied “no, the note said no nuts” and a short while later they brought him a side of potatoes. The next issue was the parent’s tables were not served next and they waited over half an hour, after we were served. While this may have been something we should have clarified with the servers more, we thought it was just a given. Nest issue - we had requested that the small cake be removed from our dessert table, after the cake cutting, and that plates be set out on the donut bar (which we had to pay extra for, as Green Mill didn’t do our dessert). My daughter and I had to remove the cake ourselves and set this aside on the table and not until several guests served themselves donuts using napkins, did we see a server to get our plates we paid for, set out. The final let down were the late night pizzas, although this was given to us at no cost, the pizzas were just set out near the kitchen entrance on a back dinner table. No one informed us they were there and we didn’t know until a few people realized there was pizza. All in all, we feel the food was excellent and a great value, but the service was lacking.

We had Green Mill cater our wedding last weekend and we could not be more pleased with our choice of having them provide the meals and service on our day. From the first time taste testing with Renee, we knew that we would be well taken care of. We had MANY guests rave about how... Read More great the food was at the wedding (which is something you don't usually hear many comments on when it comes to weddings). Renee was at the wedding and checked in on my husband and I multiple times throughout the night to see if they could get us anything at all. Our only regret when it came to the food was that we did not sit down and eat MORE of it. If we could do it all over again (which we wish we could) we would 100% choose Green Mill over and over again!

Green Mill did an excellent job with our wedding food and bar service! We worked with Andrea at our tasting and to book the service.. then Katie was the manager on-site at our Wedding! They were both fantastic to work with :) We did the taco bar at our summer wedding and... Read More everyone said it was delicious! We also loved how they gave us flexibility in the bar service... we didn't like the idea of a totally open bar so we decided to pay for 1 keg + 18 bottles of wine for our guests... then when those ran out, it turned into a cash bar. The entire team was very professional and friendly! I was also super happy that they provided all our table linens + colored napkins for us. The room looked BEAUTIFUL. We definitely recommend working with Green Mill :)

Green Mill did a fantastic job at our wedding!!! Several people commented that it was the best wedding meal that they had EVER had- including our other vendors! We had a more difficult venue (garden, tent with no kitchen) and Green Mill made everything work smoothly and easily.... Read More We worked with Sarah and Katie and they both did a marvelous job throughout our whole wedding process. They were quick, pleasant, reliable, flexible and experienced when I threw dozens of questions in their direction! They worked cooperatively and smoothly with our other vendors for desserts and bartending and were overall so wonderful to work with. Green Mill also allowed me to decreased our invoice when we received back some last minute "not comings" and needed to decrease our head-count- something most other caterers are not willing to do! We appreciated that so much, and were able to save more money. Truly one of our best decisions of our wedding. We will be referring them to several other couples!!!

Green Mill was great for our wedding on 7/21/2017. Our venue had either Green Mill or Sterling Catering as options and we went with Green Mill as it was a more affordable option.

Green Mill was great! We originally were interested in their bar service and their catering service. We did a tasting at the St Paul Green Mill where our food would have been catered out of, and it was a great experience. They were very polite and all the food served to us was... Read More delicious and hot. Unfortunately due to cost (we had a smaller budget), we did not end up using them for food. However, we still booked them for bar service and had a combination of hosted beer and cash bar. The whole process of going back and forth with the food and bar quotes was not a big hassle at all, the emails were replied quickly and they were always happy to adjust my quote depending on what I wanted (and I was pretty indecisive). I worked with Renee and Katie on the quotes and they answered all my questions quickly. On the day of the wedding, the bartenders (two for a 110 person wedding) arrived on time and were professional, and everyone loved them and they poured drinks appropriately strong ;). They were quick to clean up after last call and everything was flawless!
