While I did not use The Blue Pot Catering for a wedding, rather for my father’s funeral luncheon, I could not recommend this group more! Mark and Danielle were kind and thoughtful during what was a difficult time. The attention to detail was mu...
ch appreciated as I was planning from out of town. Not to mention the custom menu they put together was absolutely delicious! Everyone was raving about the quality of everything we served and their wonderful employee Darla set up a professional buffet, never stopped working clearing plates, restocking and more. We returned from the cemetery to find the leftovers neatly packed away and ready for us to take home. You made a very emotional, sad occasion better by providing an incredible luncheon for all who attended! Thank you so much - words cannot express our gratitude! The Stilley Family

Blue Pot was probably one of the highlights of our wedding. I had a ridiculous number of people tell me it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding. Not only was their food amazing, but they were also great with communication throughout ...

Our reception dinner from Blue Pot was everything we could have expected and more. Despite our venue not having a kitchen, Blue Pot was able to set up a station and cook everything to serve our plated dinner. And the food was just killer. The H...
ors d’oeuvres were BOMB. The wedge salad was delightful. The coffee rubbed steak and the mushroom ravioli - HOLY COW! The mushroom ravioli were especially mind-blowing because they were made in a way where even someone who doesn’t like mushrooms could (and did) enjoy! So many people had rave reviews of the food! For those doing a plated dinner though, I would suggest talking to Blue Pot about the timing of serving. I had never been to a wedding with plated dinners, and I will say, it did take a while for everyone to get their plates. We didn’t hear any complaints about that, but it just wasn’t something I thought about with this choice. As a final note, I just wanted to mention how personable Chef and his staff were. Chef came by our sweetheart table and personally served us our main dishes, thanked us, and offered well wishes, and this was just such a personal touch. The waiter who served us the rest of the night was also wonderful - very professional but so personable at the same time. We couldn’t be happier to have chosen Blue Pot for our big day.

hem I knew they had the best customer service. They are always such team players, always helping other vendors out. Their owner and chef, Mark, has such a calm presence. He makes just about any set up work and makes it look easy.
When I went for my tasting I was blown away. Mark created a custom vegan menu for us. The food was incredible and it was such an awesome experience. It was our one and only tasting! We knew from the beginning Blue Pot was our caterer. The entire process was so smooth. We ended up adding on late night snacks and rehearsal dinner. The food was incredible. We had a vegan wedding and we really wanted to impress our guests since it might be their first experience with an all-vegan meal. Blue Pot did just that!
I truly think the world of Blue Pot! I don't think there's a better caterer out there!! I'd hire them for my wedding a million times over again!!
