Lidderdale provided the food for my August wedding and it was so amazing! They are so easy to work with and their staff is extremely helpful. I can’t recommend them enough. (Also, the garlic mashed potatoes are to die for!)

Lidderdale was great to work with! They were highly recommended by our venue and had been there multiple times. The food was delicious and so much food was included for the price. My favorite was the taco salad and lasagna!

You can’t really find a better bang for your buck in terms of wedding catering in Central/Western Iowa than Lidderdale. You get 3 meat options (we did ham balls, pork loin, and roast beef), 2 sides, and 7 salads. Everything was amazing and our ...

We decided pretty last minute that we didn't want to go with the catering we had initially planned. Scrambling to find someone a little over 30 days before our wedding was very stressful but Lidderdale was recommended to us by friends and our v...
enue. It was absolutely delicious. My favorite was the Cesar salad (my favorite food so I'm picky about it) and my husband loved the chicken and wild rice. We got compliments on the taco salad by many and barely had any beef lasagna to take home because it was such a hit! Great place to work with and would definitely recommend to anyone looking for catering.

omfort food and this is IT! We booked them for our wedding as soon as we could! They are very accommodating for gluten free/vegetarian guests. They even set plates aside to prevent cross contamination. Not only is the food exceptional, but so is the customer service. I cannot tell you how many times we called to change our menu, head count, or discuss gluten free options. They were always so organized and patient with us. Not only did we love the food, but so did our guests! We cannot recommend Lidderdale enough, thank you again!

the food was, and many were sad that their plate wasn't big enough to try everything when they went through the buffet! The cost is extremely reasonable - and even better considering how delicious it was! We opted to upgrade to real plates / silverware, which we'd recommend for a nicer buffet & easy cleanup (Lidderdale staff will pick up plates for you). Also bring lots of tupperware to take the leftovers home with you!

ing personal touches to our day. They set up and tore down, arrived early to ensure things were all out before guest arrived, and of course delivered a fantastic meal. We had 7 sides (yes 7!), 3 meats, potatoes and s veggie, all for a very reasonable price. Great food, great people, great experience!
One of the things I love most is that they were out in the food line while people dished up, which isn’t uncommon, but they interacted and created a fun atmosphere as people went though. My wife and I could see people smiling and laughing with them as they passed through and received compliments on how fun they were. Not only was the food absolutely incredible these guys went above and beyond.
Thank you for being a part of our day, we will be back for sure!
