To the Entire B&M team,
I wanted to send a quick note to send our deepest appreciation to everyone who worked/helped organize my daughters wedding. From the moment we met Mickey at our tasting we knew we were making the best decision hiring your company. However we did not know to what extent your company would go through to make it the most perfect night of all of our lives. Everyone from the office handling the details leading into the day to the actual day was handled in the most professional and timely manner. The crew at the wedding went above and beyond our expectations and the food was exceptional !!!! I can not thank you enough for the role you played in the happiest day of my daughters life.

A formal thank you to follow, but this is an overdue thank you to B&M, Terry, Paul and the whole crew that catered our wedding.
The food was fabulous and the service was exceptional. Your staff went out of their way to make the event a success in every way.
From explaining to non-Rhode Islanders what a “stuffie” is to helping us pack up table arrangements at the end of our night, we could not have asked for more!

H Brian and Mickey,
I just wanted to say thank you for helping to make my 50th Birthday Tailgate party last night at Gillette Stadium a success. You made the ordering process so easy. The food was delivered hot and it was delicious!! Plus, the wonderful driver who met me close to the stadium was a life saver!! We were both right on-time, which was a miracle for me, since there was so much traffic coming from Salem, MA.
I will be sure to recommend you to anyone who needs a caterer near Foxborough.
Thank you again so much!
Thank you so much for the great service and excellent food last week for our Senior Class trip at Wide World of Sports. I was so pleased with the service, quality of food, and the friendliness of your staff. We are already talking about using you for next year!
Again, from the pulled pork to the cornbread--delicious. It certainly pleased 100 hunger seniors.
They catered my huge wedding in Newport RI and did over the top phenomenal job! I can't thank them enough! I had a few last minute glitches with cancellations and they handled it amazingly well and packaged the food wonderfully for me at the end of the night.
I'm so happy to have their amazing food for the next month (I froze it!) I felt so bad that my guest cancelled and weren't able to enjoy their amazing food that night but they totally missed out because it was some of the best steak chicken potatoes and mussels I have ever enjoyed! I cannot believed it was cooked in bulk!
Absolutely incredible service they were so kind and thoughtful!
They even set up my tables for my wedding including my centerpieces!
It was all so beautiful I couldn't thank them enough.
The bartenders they provided were so down to earth and respectful I will keep them in mind if I ever throw and large event or family gathering again they are some of the best people I have ever met!
Please keep this company going they truly deserve your business and hope they stay around for a very long time!

Good Morning Stephanie,
Thank you for your help with ordering food for our graduation party! Would you please share with Brian, Mickey and Tim...
Thank you so much for making our graduation party such a success! There was a day when I would have attempted to take on the cooking for such an event, but I have to say the party was much more enjoyable for me with the food arriving hot and ready to go. The entire process, from my phone call (5 days before the party) to the prompt delivery of the food took away the burden of preparation, cooking, timing and how to heat all of the food up in my not so roomy oven.
We received many, many comments from our guests about how delicious EVERYTHING was - the cornbread, of course, was a hit! Brendan was great, I really appreciated his efforts of carrying the three very large coolers, alone, through the pouring rain so as not to bother us to move the cars in the driveway so he could more quickly (and dryly) get to where the food was set up. (typical nice, kind & polite Feehan boy! ) Please thank him for me, I didn't get a chance before he left.
I know you've been in business for a long time and it is evident that you have perfected what you do and have a great team of people!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
My best to all - Lynnette B...

Wedding: November 2017
We got married!!!! We had our reception at Camp Meehan in North Providence. Well the food was delicious. We met Tim back in the early spring as one does when one plans a wedding you set things well in advance. He gave us the most amazing feast you could ever imagine full of chicken, pork, some weird spaghetti thing that we didn't end up choosing. So much food we ate from it for a week. We decided we wanted a pig roast. They cook on site, bring everything and the guests just show up.
The service was amazing too. Now I'm sure many brides say, "oh I didn't have time to eat at my wedding". Well the caterers actually came up to us as we were greeting people before dinner to ask us if we wanted any food or if there was any food we didn't want. I said sure just give us everything. So we indeed got everything.. pulled pork, roasted pork, chicken, corn bread, baked beans, rice. We eventually did sit down to eat it and I eat we did. Later on they gave the head table the pork ribs so we had some of those too. Then I proceeded to ask every other table if they wanted some. The server was so nice that she said that they'd do it for me. I also gave them a recipe for the cranberry sangria I make for the holidays. They made it and it was delicious too. Everyone said how delicious the food was. If a bride, or anyone, was looking for a pig roast I would recommend B&M catering no questions asked.

The food was excellent! B&M customized the menu perfectly to fit our desires and budget. They delivered it on time and it was fresh, delicious and everyone raved about the food. The lemon pepper chicken and eggplant parmesan were fantastic! I would recommend them for any special occasion!

We did a BBQ buffet for our reception and everything was fantastic. We knew right from the tasting that this was a great company. Tons of delicious food (and leftovers) for a great price and professional staff.
We are so happy that we chose B&M Catering for our wedding on 7/21/17!
Wedding Catering Review on The Knot
Such a great company to work with! They were willing to work with us and change our menu around to accommodate our budget. They never made me feel like they were out to make money, just to make us happy. We changed some things around that already came with the meal to make more appetizers for cocktail hour (their suggestion). They made some awesome signature drinks for us. They were never frustrated with my indecisiveness. The open bar was well worth the price, and the food, our wedding was sunday, and we are still eating left overs! Food was amazing I loved that they wrapped up the extra food and sent it home with us. Nothing like getting your moneys worth! The wait staff was great, they helped set up my donut wall, smiled any time they asked me something, and truly went outside their box to make everything perfect for my day. They helped set up way more than they needed to! As far as the bartenders! They rocked! They kept me in the loop about things and entertained my guests all night. I had a lot of family and friends come up to me and tell me how much they loved the bar tenders! I would 100% use them again.

"This caterer was so professional! I was a little skeptical at first because I am vegetarian and they seem to specialize mostly in barbecue. However, after being unable to find another caterer in our price range, we decided to try them.
They did an excellent job customizing a menu that included vegetarian options, fish, and meat.
Not only that, but they were able to modify the menu to fit our limited budget.
We had done a few tastings with different places and B&M won out: they were the most affordable caterer we found that served really fresh, high-quality food. They were so professional and responsive and we never worried about anything. Highly recommended! "

Just a note to tell you how great a job your staff did Saturday!
Many people came up to me afterward to say how delicious the food was, and what a great job the bartenders did!
Of course, I had *extras* that dropped in, and I am happy to say we were able to feed everyone (and then some...) and still have some leftovers!
Thank you again for a wonderful, professional job. I will definitely be keeping your company in mind for the next time!
We want to thank everyone at B&M for the absolutely amazing job you did catering our wedding on Saturday, 8/20 at Slater Mill. From the very beginning, we knew we made the right choice.
We couldn't have been more impressed with Sue and the whole staff. They all went above and beyond and exceeded our highest expectations from decorations and service to the speedy cleanup. They were all on point.
And the food! Well...we really can't say enough about the food! All of our friends and family are still talking about it and there certainly was no concern with anyone leaving hungry!
Our bartenders were quite the mixologists throwing together rum punches and sangria on the fly! They were unbelievable and never missed a beat despite the slightly warm temperatures in our venue.
The best part for us was to see that the staff actually enjoyed themselves, singing and dancing as if they were part of our celebration. We loved it! We cannot say enough really.
Everyone was such a pleasure to work with and we never had a worry or concern the whole day. I would highly recommend you to everyone I know!
Thank you again for helping to make our day even more perfect and thank you again, Sue for overseeing everything!

We deliberately chose a venue that allowed us to choose whatever caterer we wanted, but they provided a list of caterers that had been used by brides in the past. B&M was on that list, and once we saw the menu we were sold.
They took care of all of the rentals and staffing at a really good rate (linens, china, etc.), and everything was cooked on-site. Pricing and payment was super easy and very transparent, and emails were always answered promptly.
The day of our wedding, we had passed appetizers (the beef teriyaki skewers and soup served in shot glasses in four different flavors). The skewers especially got rave reviews from our guests. We also got a buffet with roast pork, turkey legs, and crab legs, with vegetables, mashed potatoes, and cornbread. All of it was absolutely delicious - the meat was moist and tender and the cornbread southern-sweet.

The food was amazing!! The clam chowder had a lot of flavor and wasn't overloaded with potatoes, and yes, there were clams in the chowder. The steamed mussels and clams were also great- super fresh and super delicious. The corn was great - a super large portion that was expertly cooked and tasted sweet and excellent.
The lobster was so good- perfectly cooked and without any of the tough stringiness you get from a lobster that's been boiling in the pot a teensy bit too long. One of the B & M guys pre-cracked the tail and claws to make your dining experience easier.
Now I didn't expect to rave about the BBQ chicken at a clambake, but let me tell you the chicken was outstanding. So moist and tender with a really good barbecue sauce on top.
And we finished off our feast with a scoop of apple crisp and a squirt of whipped cream.
Thank you, Brian and Mickey Doherty (The B & M in B&M). You did a bang up job for us.
I cannot recommend them highly enough.

My fiancé and I were so impressed by B&M at our recent tasting. Mickey was welcoming and informative. He made menu planning easy and gladly helped us figure out how to stay in budget. The food was delicious! The BBQ ribs, pulled pork, and cowboy beans were seriously amazing, and we even got to bring leftovers home. It's so nice to rest easy knowing that the food at our wedding will be a crowd pleaser, and that the service will be professional and remarkably friendly. Thank you B&M! We look forward to working with you.

Super friendly and accommodating staff. They said they typically only do tastings for weddings but they allowed my daughter and me to make an appointment. They served us in a small room decorated like a fancy restaurant and the courses just kept coming out. Never saw anything like it. The food was absolutely delicious! They even allowed us to take containers of food home so other family members could sample them free of charge. Very impressive, I highly recommend B&M!

Wedding Catering Review on Facebook
"This is my first ever Yelp review ....... Let me give you a quick background on myself so you know what I say has value. I myself have worked in the food industry for over 10 years, including wedding catering. My mom was the banquet manager of one of the top wedding venues in NJ for 12 years where she ran the food and coordinating services for weddings as large as 800 people. So needless to say, we know what we are doing when it comes to weddings and planning.
Sometimes a good review can make or break a decision...well, please let me help you make your decision easier! B & M Catering was the best experience I have ever had with a catering company!
I contacted B&M by email inquiring about their services. It was recommended by family members who live in MA (my husband and I live in VA). They were quick to respond and answered all of my questions thoughtfully and thoroughly. My wedding was held at a family members property in MA. Since we live in VA I could only give them small details of the property and they told me not to worry about a thing they would take care of everything. ...... They arrived at the property at noon to begin cooking our whole pig and setting up. I introduced myself to a young man in between running around for hair and pictures. He was so polite and reassured me everything was taken care of. Between setting up the tables and having dinner prepared on time, I literally was never asked a single question.
The food was out of this world!! My husband was born and raised in Alabama and Georgia and he is a stickler for good BBQ. I was nervous on behalf of B&M, but he was licking his fingers and getting seconds before I even ate half my plate. I am still getting compliments from wedding guests on the food a month later. It was one of the best parts of my wedding! Afterwards, I personally thanked all the staff members with my husband because I was just in such awe of the fantastic experience I was provided.
Don't waste your money on food that every typical wedding has. Go with something unexpected and heart warming. Your guests will thank you for it!
You will be thankful you chose B & M Catering!
We had B&M cater our wedding at the Easton's Beach Rotunda Ballroom in August and they went above and beyond for us. From our first communication with them, we knew that we were in good hands. The food was excellent, the service was superior and the bar was fantastic. Thank you all again for an amazing evening!
Wedding Catering Review on Facebook
B&M offers many menus but are also very flexible. We started with their wedding menu as a guide and then tailored to meet our needs. Their pricing is competitive and doesn't come with all types of additional fees/charges like some caterers we looked into. They are very responsive throughout the planning process and everyone we dealt with was friendly and helpful.
On the day of the party, Sean showed up early and got things rolling. Frankly, I was amazed that he showed up in a van with everything he needed for the day - tables, supplies, food, roaster for the pig and a huge steamer to keep everything warm. The food was fantastic - all rave reviews from our guests (leftovers have been good as well since we are still eating them)! The best part was they do EVERYTHING - set up, cook, break down, clean up and even take the trash and my husband and I could enjoy the party and visit with our guests!
I would definitely recommend B&M and would use them for future events!
Yelp Wedding Catering Review
"My husband and I cannot thank B&M enough for all that they did to ensure that we had a beautiful wedding reception. The food was PHENOMENAL, the staff was PHENOMENAL, and the service was PHENOMENAL. Months later, we are STILL getting compliments on our food choices--our guests can't get over the fact that they were able to have chicken, steak tips, AND swordfish for dinner. (Of course, we were already expecting all the deliciousness after our amazing food-tasting with Mickey, which, by the way, I highly recommend!!! We got to sample a TON of food and even received a lot of great advice and recommendations regarding our reception timeline--SO HELPFUL!)
I have to call special attention to how unbelievably accommodating B&M's menu was to my gluten allergy. I was blown away when I found out that I could eat practically everything they offered!!! They even made us gluten-free clam chowder for the cocktail hour--SO DELICIOUS. For someone who often has very limited choices at restaurants, it made all the difference in the world to be able to enjoy basically the entire menu on my wedding day. Not everyone might be able to understand what that means, but--honestly--I will be forever grateful!
(However, I should also mention the cornbread. It was the one item on our menu that wasn't gluten free, but I can still confidently attest to its deliciousness. We offered it on the tables at the beginning of the meal and our guests could not stop gushing over it! Even though I couldn't enjoy it myself, I loved being able to offer such a unique alternative to the usual dinner roll!)
We are so appreciative to Tammy and the rest of the staff for helping make our night so enjoyable and stress-free. The food was right on time, the drink line was never long, and the table set-up and breakdown was impeccable. B&M's hard work truly allowed us to make the absolute most of the night!!
Wedding Catering Review on Yelp
We used B&M for a family reunion in Rhode Island and they were outstanding. Several months in advance I started getting prices on different menu options & as the RSVPs started rolling in. I would consistently e-mail [the B&M office ] at least once a week to make changes & get new rates.
It seems like they definitely have a teamwork flow set up as my e-mail responses were by a variety of people & they were all very helpful.
They arrived on site promptly in the AM to start setting up & cooked on site, They served, cleaned up & provided us with 'to go' containers for our leftovers.
Most importantly, the food was fabulous!
Yelp Review, 9/2015
These are comments taken from the wedding testimonials page for Arrowhead Acres.
Arrowhead Acres was not only the perfect spot for our vow renewal, but the staff went above and beyond to ensure our day was worry free! At the last minute due to weather, we needed to move inside and the staff didn't even blink an eye at the reworking of seating from outside. I also hired B&M catering that worked seamlessly with Arrowhead Acres to make our day more than we ever imagined! And we finished the day with a nice and toasty campfire and s'mores! Very relaxing and yummy!

Just wanted to let you know that all of our guests loved your food. Thanks again for taking such good care of us on such short notice. We’ll be sure to recommend B&M Catering to all of our friends.
Deb's Summer Buffet Dinner included: Garlic Herb Steak Tips, Ribs, BBQ Pulled Chicken, Corn on the Cob, Mac n Cheese and more.
B&M catered our RI clambake wedding and they knocked it out of the park! As one of my city-dwelling bridesmaids said to me: "I expected to eat good food at your wedding, but that was some of the best wedding food I've had!" The lobsters were flavorful and cooked perfectly (AND pre-cut for easy, non-messy eating). Guests loved the handheld chowder and clamcake appetizers as well as the wieners (yes we did ;).
B&M were a dependable, very-well organized, service-oriented, and an easy part of our planning. And most outstanding was the quality of the food - especially at their prices.
Noteworthy: 1. we never felt pressured to buy anything but exactly what we wanted, 2. they honored the prices on their menu, despite having raised prices after we agreed on a date and menu, 3. they have extremely reasonable prices for bartending and open bar (such that we went with the full open bar), 4. their presentation was lovely and professional.
Throughout the process, they went well-beyond what is expected of a wedding vendor.
If I lived in RI, I would ask them to cater all of my events.

I just wanted to thank you and everyone at B&M for the great food and especially the service of the young lady who set everything up for our function on 8/30. Our party went longer than expected so we were able to feed people twice and everyone was so excited that there was more! So many people wanted the name of the caterer...sure you'll get lots of future work from this and we are happy to forward your contact info.

The day-of Susan and Sean were the crew - they were so nice to work with, they made sure everything was just right, from set-up to timing of service to complete clean-up. Everyone had plenty to eat! I found B&M online and decided to give them a go. I was so pleased when my responses to the invites were coming in, a couple of people asked who was catering. When I told them it was B&M, they couldn't say enough good things about them having attended other events that they did. I was reassured and they did not disappoint!

Thank you so much for making my event so stress-free for me and so enjoyable for our guests!!
You catered our wedding 5/30/2009 in Worcester. Recently we were at a dinner with three couples that were at the wedding. One of the ladies mentioned our anniversary was coming up and the three couples began reminiscing about that day, the good time and the incredible food. You certainly made a lasting impression on my guests.
From their warm, courteous service to their ability to accommodate your specific details with a smile to, of course, the delicious food, you will be so pleased.
This outfit does a wonderful job. And Susan was a just joy to work with. She had a pretty windy day yet she made it work. And work she did. I have never seen anyone work as hard as she did. And any obstacle put in her path, she just worked the harder. All the while remained upbeat and accommodating.
We had a clambake for almost 90 people for my Dad's 90th birthday party and while the guests, and I, were raving about how good the food was, I was blown away by Susan's professionalism.

Could not say enough great things about B & M Catering. They recently catered a post-wedding backyard bash we hosted. From the planning process to the setup, the team at B&M was incredible. Tim and Mickey were such a great help at putting together a custom BBQ style menu and were incredibly accommodating to last minute needs and headcount changes. Now the most important part ... the food was outstanding! Guests went up for seconds and thirds. I will definitely be recommending B&M to friends and family and will most certainly use them again for larger parties.

I attended a clambake held at my friend's home. I have to say I was blown away by B&M Catering. I am not usually one to write reviews, but they did such a great job. They served us a clambake and everything was fresh and hot. They were professional, hardworking, pleasant, and funny! If I ever hold a clambake or hear of anyone who needs a caterer to do so, B&M will be the first name I will think of. Great job!!

I had B&M cater a wedding reception clambake for my daughter this June. Never used them before but I will definitely use them in the future. I have never seen a crew work soooo hard and so well together. The clambake was excellent. My friends told me my famous chowder that I have been making for years took second place to B&M's clam chowder. Lobster, steak, chicken and fish were all cooked to perfection. They cleaned all the tables, constantly asked if anyone needed anything, took all the trash....just unbelievably professional.
I would not consider anyone else in the future since having them. They made my daughter's reception very special.

July 18, 2014
After taste testing at B&M, we knew they were the caterer for us! We got married at the Kinney Bungalow and thought that a clambake would go perfectly with the location. We chose the “Old-Time Bake with BBQ Chicken”, but we also added pulled pork and some other sides. The pulled pork and chicken were amazing (just as good as the BBQ down here in Texas!) and the clam chowder and corn bread are a must. Everyone appreciated the variety of food that we had and having a break from more traditional wedding food! The vegetarian options were also great.
Mickey and Tim were also extremely helpful with determining our menu. On the wedding day Tim’s staff made everything flow perfectly, and the buffet line moved great even with 130 people. They were also very reasonably priced and brought more than enough food for people to have seconds and thirds. We went around during dinner to talk to people and everyone loved the food. A month after the wedding we still hear how much everyone loved the food and multiple people have asked if they do catering for smaller parties. We can’t say how much we loved the food!
Wedding review on The Knot
Had these guys back in May for my daughter's wedding.....wonderful job!!!! Great people and nice to deal with. I especially loved setting up a date prior to the event to go there for a sit-down dinner to taste all their different food selections to choose from, very nice!
B&M Catering is AMAZING!
We used B&M for our wedding reception (both food & bar) and we are glad we did! They went above and beyond from day one. We live in the Midwest but our wedding was back East where we grew up, so most of our planning was done through email and they were always prompt in getting back to us. No question was too small and they made you feel like you were the only function they had!
A unique aspect about our reception site is that at this location everything is run off of solar power or generators. Also, we didn't have running water right on site. Not to add to the challenge but to get out to the site, they had to worry about the tides, dirt roads & a super sharp turn that most cars have trouble with! They handled it all with ease!
We had decided on the New England Lobster Bake and we had almost every guest come up to (including couples that had just been married this year!) and tell us that hands down, "best wedding food ever!" :) We can't speak highly enough of Brian, Mickey, Tim and their team! We hope we have another special event in the future so that we can connect with B&M again!
We recently used B&M catering for a luau pig roast for our son's engagement party. The entire affair was amazing!! They did such a fabulous job!! The crew who cooked the food were a nice group of guys!! They did such a great job!! They were over the top!! They could not be better!!! I cannot recommend them enough. Every bit of the food was delicious!!!
The raw bar was outstanding and all of the luau food was incredible especially the pulled pork. They were prompt and cleaned everything up. A first class company!!
I will use them again and again!!
Hey, just wanted to say thanks. Susan and her niece just left our event and they were unbelievable. They had the greatest personalities and worked extremely hard for us to make sure everything was perfect, it couldn't have been better........thanks again.
B&M Catered my parents 50th wedding anniversary in Dennisport, MA. They were so easy to work with and exceeded my expectations. Jim and Amanda were professional and relaxed. That really put me at ease as I had no idea how they would prepare and serve the food. We had a clam bake with lobster, steak tips, clam chowder, steamed clams and mussels, baked beans, potatoes, corn on the cob, watermelon, and lemonade. All the guests raved about the food and my parents were delighted with the food and the service.
On a personal note, they made me look like a rock star since I was the one that found them!

On July 29th we picked up a clambake for 10 and 2 sampler platters to feed our hungry family of 18 while vacationing in Barrington Rhode Island.
We were originally planning to hire a personal chef but that turned out to be much too expensive. We cannot tell you how much we enjoyed every single item you sent. The clam bake itself was wonderful and the sampler platters to die for.
Not only was the food spectacular but the fact that you included every single thing we would possible need to serve it ourselves from the lobster crackers to the trash bag.
You are wonderful!! Thank you so much.
Dear Brian and Mickey,
Last Saturday night you catered my son's engagement party for us. I have never catered an event at my home. Your staff was terrific and the food was delicious. So many people commented on both. I would definitely contact you again for an event and highly recommend you to anyone considering a clam bake.
I have to say from the moment I contacted your company until the truck pulled away I found very pleasant people to deal with.
The staff suggested the rehearsal dinner would be an opportune time to use you again. We will see what is happening next September when they will be married.
Thank you so much,

We had the Pig Roast/Chicken Barbecue. Al and Aiden were unbelievable. They were super friendly, enthusiastic, and just overall great people. The food was super and they did everything from setup, cooking, to cleanup.
Thanks, guys and B&M Catering for creating a great party. Can't wait to work with you again!
Yelp Catering Review
First class in every way.
We wanted a clambake to celebrate our son's graduation. We interviewed several different companies. At the conclusion of our interview, the decision was very easy. B&M was clearly the most helpful and would be the easiest to work with. The price was fair and the communication was great.
On the day of the event they were there on time and were fully prepared. The employees were nothing less than great, very friendly and efficient. They clearly know and like their jobs. The food was equally great. We had several guests comment to us that the chowder, brown bread and baked beans were the best that they had ever had. The rest of the food was equally satisfying. All of our guests raved about how much they enjoyed the party, and they are a picky bunch. Everyone wanted a business card from B&M. We will use B&M again for our next celebration. We were very pleased.

Hi Brian and Mickey,
First of all, I want to tell you what a wonderful staff you have. They were so pleasant and helpful and were willing to do anything, even if we didn't ask them to do it!! The food was amazing, guests could not stop talking about the clam cakes and especially the chowder! We had a great time....
Thank you for helping to make my son's wedding a truly wonderful affair....

Just wanted to say that once again, B&M comes through. The food was delicious and it was all consumed (next time, I will definitely have to order more) Thanks again for all of your help.

Thank you. The food was wonderful. I was also surprised that the young man who came to deliver the food set it all up. All details were included down to salt and pepper wipes and baskets. I will definitely use you again.
Please pass on to everyone how delicious and plentiful the food was. The delivery people were so polite and made sure we had everything we needed.
Can't thank you enough for the service. The day was perfect all around.

Hello Brian, Mickey & Staff,
I just want to let you know that we were so pleased with our Clam Bake. It was a great event.
The food was fabulous and the service was awesome. The staff was so accommodating and courteous. My relatives commented that the chowder was the best they ever had, the brown bread was the best they ever had and my sister in law thought the beans were the best she ever had. Many people said that the seafood was so fresh! Personally, I LOVED the apple crisp. People are still raving about the event.
We will highly recommend your company. Thanks for making our special day a wonderful experience.

Hi Brian & Mickey:
Thank you so much for the wonderful food provided by your company for our Professional Development Day! You did an amazing job, the food was DELICIOUS, and your staff was pleasant, patient and professional. I could not wait to get your information so that I can contact you when I am planning my next special occasion. I have not stopped talking about that clambake!
Best Wishes to you in all that you do!

I just wanted to thank you so incredibly much for the delicious food that you prepared for our wedding. Every single one of our guests raved about it. Dave and I were beyond pleased with both the food and the presentation. You guys are awesome!

It has been almost two weeks since your company catered a clambake for my son's graduation party and the compliments have not stopped coming our way. The staff, Jim, Matt, and Chris were very organized professional and hardworking. Their unwavering efforts that met our guest every need were a perfect match for the delicious food that was served that afternoon. My wife and I look forward to having your company serve us at a future event.
I worked with this business from out of state to arrange a backyard bbq graduation party. In every respect they were easy to work with, helpful, and friendly. By the time I got to the house after the graduation, food was set up and guests being served.
At the end of the party, leftovers were wrapped up and stored in the fridge, and everything was left clean.
No problem substituting a vegetarian option in one of their standard packages. The food was simple, well prepared, and nicely presented.
A nice business, may use them again for graduation number 2 next year.
Yelp Business Review
I should begin by saying that we ended up not being able to use these guys for our wedding, but we were so intent on trying to make it happen that we were considering bringing them out to Block Island, putting some of their staff up, and jumping through all kinds of hoops to make it happen. They are fantastic to speak with, they're ready to work with you at every turn, and they're just plain real people who know what they're doing and are not trying to take advantage of the ridiculousness of the wedding business to bankrupt you. You'll have to work to dress up their presentation (if that's your thing), but they have options and are open to you bringing in others (linens, your own wine preferences, etc.) and apparently they do food on a large scale that just slays. So... that's my rave review, though I (very sadly) can't even call myself a customer! I am already scheming to see how my future husband and I can use them for a one year anniversary clambake or some such thing.
B & M Catering catered a party for 100 guests located in Providence at Waterfires on August 18th for us. The food was amazing, everyone loved the steak tips, swordfish and chicken.
John hosted the bar and Rosina assisted in absolutely every way possible. Together they made our event seamless and wonderful. Several people made it a point of asking how we had found them and commenting on the terrific food and service.
We will ALWAYS refer our family and friends to them without hesitation. You really can't do better!
100 Guests - Providence Waterfires Party
B & M catered our wedding in Uxbridge, MA. We had a causal, backyard type wedding. They delivered the buffet for our occasion, and we could not have been more thrilled!
We were on a budget, and they worked with us closely to figure out the best food options so that we did not need a full service caterer. The chicken and pig roast buffet that they selected turned out amazing! Everyone complimented the food.
The staff were prompt and professional. It was as though they weren't even there- in that everything just flowed so naturally and there was so little lag time. We were so pleased. They just knew how to set up, serve, and clean without interrupting our reception. AMAZING!
We also really enjoyed the process- they were an easy vendor to work with as we planned our wedding from 1500 miles away. They answered and returned calls so quickly and were willing to talk through all options.
There was more than enough food, and they let us keep the left overs! They were excellent the next day by the way. I would recommend B&M to anyone and everyone! I could not have been happier with their service, their food, and their company.
I am so glad we chose them- not being able to taste the food and having to do it all over the phone was a risk for us. However, we could not have chosen a better company to provide the food for our special day!!
This company is Great! We hosted a Groom's Dinner for 55 people. B&M came in and made the night perfect. From my initial phone call to the end of the evening, everything went smoothly. Tim and Mickey were easy to work with: organized, flexible with the menu, helpful with choices.
The food was outstanding. Our servers, Dennis and Jen, were professional, friendly, very well organized, and their timing was perfect. We are still receiving compliments on the evening. The price was a bargain for what we received. We would Highly recommend this company to everyone.

Dear Tim & Co.,
Thank you so so so much for creating such an incredible meal for our wedding on Friday. Our family and friends (mostly picky New England natives) RAVED about the clamcakes, and my sister said "I don't usually like clear chowder, but theirs was delicious!”
Your service and staff were friendly and very professional. The ladies cleaning up were quick and thorough, and gave us tips on camping spots for our future adventures! They also said I was a beautiful bride, and a girl can never hear that too much. ;)
Everything tasted delicious and fresh. The buffet line moved faster than I could have imagined, and people weren't afraid to go up for seconds!
I was disappointed I didn't have time to eat more, but am thrilled with having leftovers to feed us (and friends!) this week. :D
Thanks for providing everything we needed, and more, with a smile.
Hi Mickey and the B & M Team,
We can not thank you enough for a simply perfect evening on Saturday night. From the first moment, you understood the atmosphere that we were trying to create. Then, you worked with us with great flexibility to find the right food and team to make the event a huge success.
The evening was flawless and that was certainly in large part to your great food and wonderful staff.
Who knew that we had ordered an appetizer of perfect weather and you delivered on that as well!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!!
This is a terrific business that helped to celebrate my friend's wedding with delicious food and service. Tim Walker, our point person for the wedding, was a wonderful help to making sure that the event went off without a hitch. From preparing food outdoors and carrying it up three flights of stairs into a building with no air conditioning, to helping me to move the wedding cake to make an extra table during the reception, Tim and his colleagues delivered a great meal for a beautiful, beautiful celebration. Thanks to B&M Catering for their help!
I wanted to let you know how pleased I was with how the clambake went on Saturday. The food was excellent and plenty of it. Jamie and Liam did an amazing job and would highly recommend to you to anyone I know. Everything went right along on schedule with no hiccups.
A few family members took cards from the guys, I hope they use you for their next events. I hope I have an opportunity again to have your company cater another event for me.
B & M catered a backyard party for my brother and sister in law this past weekend. They were awesome.
Super friendly and delicious food! They got the pig roast which was pretty cool. Glenn would have us try some pieces and anyone who was curious he would show them the pig etc. All the sides were delicious as well. No complaints here! I'd definitely recommend them!
My husband and I would like to thank B&M catering!!!
Throughout the whole process, you were easy to work with. You listened to our wants and figured out our needs. We never felt pressure to go beyond. The food at our wedding reception tasted amazing! People loved it! We loved the chicken and pig roast.
The staff who set up and took down was prompt, professional, and so nice.
So thank you!! Fantastic! Highly recommended to anyone!
I just wanted to tell you that everyone thought the food was AWSOME at our reception! The portions were huge, the delivery driver was great, very professional, quick and the pigs head was a big hit!
People kept asking me where the food came from and the bowl of business cards that was left empty by the end of the night.
I will definitely use you again in the future and will recommend you to all my friends and family. Thanks again for the great job!
Drop-Off Pig Roast for 80
Just wanted you to know that the food was fabulous. I was a little skeptical about ordering lasagna for a mostly Italian crowd. But, my own mother, who makes lasagna quite often, said it was delicious and my husband said it tasted just like his mom’s.
So, I just wanted to pass this info along to you and I won’t hesitate to call you again if needed. Again, thanks so much!!!
Dear Brian, Mickey and Tim,
I would like to say thank you to everyone at B&M for delivering a mouthwatering meal with outstanding service. All of our guests at our Hawaiian Luau Wedding Celebration were raving about the food the entire evening and continued to do so the next day.
I can't say thank you enough, especially to Bobbie and Kayla, for their outstanding help in making the event go off without a hitch and all service was done with a smile.

Dear B & M,
Last week Brian and his crew staged a “world class” event… a clambake at my daughter’s Medical School Graduation Party. This was done at our home in Bristol. The meteorologists were all wrong and it was a beautiful day.
Brian and his two assistants (Liam and Mark) were all great. They set up, cooked, served, cleaned up, then left… all done with surgical precision. They were helpful, courteous, pleasant and everything was DELICIOUS. I have photos of people “in line” waiting for those beautiful lobsters, everyone smiling from ear to ear.
Their good job made us look good as hosts, and all we had to do was mingle. Also of note, I have an 88 ½ year old mother (who is not easy to please) and Brian made a special effort to give her extra attention. He even sat down next to her and I am sure they exchanged tips on making clam cakes (in her younger days, hers were legendary).
Well I could go on and on, but I guess you hear this all the time. You guys are the best, from our first contact through the event. The next time we do this I know just who to call!!
On Sunday, May 27th, we had a wonderful clambake in Jerusalem, RI catered by your company. I just wanted to let you know how pleased we were. The food was delicious and Mickey’s sons were professional, efficient, and friendly from beginning to end.
It was a pleasure dealing with your company. I would recommend B & M Catering to anyone having an event in your area.
I can't begin to tell you how much everyone enjoyed the food.
Your employees were also thoughtful and engaging and the yard was left in pristine condition when they were done.
This was a wonderful experience!
Pig Roast Wedding Catering
We enjoyed our event very much! We have gotten so many compliments on the food, or should I say YOU! Thank you again for all your accommodations – you were so helpful and a pleasure to work with. Thanks again! I will highly recommend you to my friends and family!
I just wanted to let you know that the baby buffet- clambake was awesome!
I am so happy we picked it up hot, that made it to simple and it came with everything we could need!
Everyone loved the chowder ---and of course the lobster, clams, and mussels.
I am a loan officer right on Newport Avenue at Seacoast Mortgage and will definitely be mentioning you to clients and business contacts.
Baby Buffet Clambake
We'd give them more than five stars if that was possible! B&M was absolutely amazing. They provided more than enough food for everyone and the prices were less than other vendors we looked at. On top of that, they worked in tropical storm conditions, cooking the food while standing in several inches of water! Many people commented that the caterers were incredibly nice and that the food was the best wedding food they'd ever had.

Just wanted to send a quick note of thanks for doing a great job for my CFO. Larry couldn’t speak more highly of the quality and professionalism of the folks who came to his house and worked under less than perfect circumstances (rain).
This was his mother’s 90th birthday party and a pretty important party for his family.

Just wanted to drop a quick note before we head out for honeymoon to let you know how absolutely amazing you all were, and how great the food was.
SO many people told us that they had more than one lobster (we LOVED having more than one lobster) and that it was the best wedding food they ever had. You guys rock!!!!
Anyway, I just made a simple lobster salad for the plane tomorrow and wanted to say thank you so much.

Thanks again for your professionalism and making it so easy for us to enjoy our company! We will keep you in mind for future events.
All the best, Grace
Hello Brian and Mickey—
We have to let you know what a wonderful experience we had with your company yesterday at my husband’s “Grammar School” CYO reunion. As folks nearing “60” they have been friends for at least 50 years! We chose the Narragansett Beach Bash- the food was absolutely outstanding in every way – the clam cakes, everyone agreed, we the best they have ever had – so light and full of clams (now, that’s an oxymoron today for a clam cake!). The two different flavors of chowder were a huge hit! Next the “weiner roast” was exceptional and so much fun!
But none of this would have been so fabulous if it weren’t for your chef, Matt – he was the most polite, efficient and most willing to help of anyone we have ever hired to do a party here…for such a young guy, he has the charm and personality of someone way beyond his years. He fit right in with everyone here who were (obviously) old enough to be his parents (or even older!!). He was “wired” for the success of our party from the moment he arrived to set up, till the minute he left. You could never tell he had even stepped foot in to our yard, it was so perfectly cleaned up!!
It is such a pleasure to work with someone like Matt – his entire day was spent just making sure everything was perfect for our party. He is a gem and someone (we are sure!) you must value as an employee – that kid will really go places!!
Once again, thanks so much for helping to make this event, which we have planned since May, such a huge hit!!
Judy and Dave M.
I just wanted to send over warm thanks on behalf of the rehearsal dinner guests. You guys were so professional and Sue and John were so sweet and helpful. They went above and beyond in helping me move rental stuff that had been left in the wrong area - I really can't tell you how much I appreciated it.
The food was exceptional and everyone just loved everything you served.
Thank you very very much! It's been a pleasure working with you!
I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you so much for the absolutely fantastic job B&M did for my husband's surprise birthday party this past weekend!
The food was delivered right on time and everything was set up perfectly! The food was absolutely wonderful! Everybody raved and couldn't get enough. I honestly can't say enough about the food. Absolutely delicious! Especially the cornbread! I don't know the last time my house smelled so good!
I can't tell you how happy I am. The entire day was perfect and the food only added to the enjoyment. The customer service of you and your entire staff was phenomenal as well.
I have already recommended B&M to friends and family for upcoming events.
Again, thank you so much and I look forward to using B&M for future events.
Surprise Birthday Party
Tim and Mickey from B&M Catering were wonderful to work with.
We wanted something different for our wedding and chose B&M for our pig roast and bar services.
The entire B&M team did a great job setting up the venue and making sure our guests were well fed. They even took care of assembling the Korean BBQ Sliders I had dropped off for cocktail hour.
EVERYONE loved the food and said it was the best pulled pork they have ever had. Tim even packed up all the leftovers at the end of the night for us.
Thanks again for everything!
B&M Catering was recommended to us by our venue. We were looking for a laid back caterer with barbeque food. After our tasting we booked them immediately because the food was so tasty. Their prices are standard for a wedding plate pricing on the lower side and we had so many leftovers that it is 2 days after my wedding and my fridge is still full of food!.
We went with Ribs, Steak tips and Chicken for the buffet meats and everyone went back for seconds.
They arrive early with grills and cook everything on site so you know it is all fresh.
I had no problem getting in touch with them with questions and always got thorough detailed answers.
I would recommend them to any bride looking for delicious barbeque food.
Stop now. You've found B&M Catering. There's no need to look any further. Tim and his accomplished staff, catered my son and new daughter-in-law's 300 guests wedding this past Saturday, Oct. 20th, 2012. The B&M team were simply amazing. The lobster/clam bake they provided went off without a hitch. People raved about the food. Thank you, Tim and staff. You were simply outstanding. My best to you at B&M.
300 Guests - Wedding
I had B&M cater my 130 person wedding in Wethersfield, CT. My wedding was obviously not traditional but you can dress it up as much as like and still have amazing food. They did a great job displaying the buffet tables in the right way and helping with the set up of the tableware that we organized as well as the clean up. They were amazing, I loved working with both Mickey and Tim.
We knew wanted to do something BBQ style and even considered a pig roast. The reason we chose B&M is because of their varied menu. Everyone has clambakes and BBQ but they have the most options of anyone else we looked at in the area. And come to find out they travel almost anywhere so geography is not even an issue. When we went to the tasting that Mickey set up we realized that we really much preferred the other meats over the pork.
All my guests agree that the food was amazing and the best food that they've eaten at a wedding! We started with by serving raw oysters, steamed clams and clam chowder - These were a huge hit! It's a nice detail that not everyone can have at their wedding. For the meal I wanted to serve salad and rice and beans which people loved. We wanted so many different varieties of meat; linquica, pulled pork, 2 different kinds of chicken and steak tips. People just loved the food so much.
But the best thing about this catering crew was watching how well they handled the challenges of this venue with ease, professionalism and friendliness. Stairs and wind would have discouraged other caterers that I have seen, but not these folks.
B & M is phenomenal! We used them for our clambake rehearsal dinner and from the moment we first met with them I was completely impressed. They worked with us to select a menu within our budget, did tastings so we could sample everything, brought everything down to the garbage cans and took it all with them when they left. I cannot say enough good things about them. We may use them again when we have our annual summer party in July.
B&M Clambakes: A+
Our food was fantastic and the service was great. We had a mixed grill menu and guests raved about the food, especially the BBQ steak tips, the cornbread and the clam chowder we had during cocktail hour. They offered us a tasting before we even booked, which was nice. They also accommodated my dairy issues and made me a special salad without the mozzarella.
B&M offers a great deal for the volume and quality of food you get. They packaged up the extras (including packets of cornbread for guests who had raved to them about it) for us and we ate wedding food for days! I paid for the linens/flatware/dinnerware upgrade and was a little disappointed when I saw the dinnerware was melamine plastic, so be aware of that if you use them. But I’m not sure anyone really noticed or cared.
I highly recommend B&M, and they have all types of menus to suit your needs. They were the only caterer we contacted because we fell in love with their menu.

We had our Groom's dinner catered by B&M. They did a fantastic job from start to finish. From my first phone call to Tim and Mickey to the end of the catered event, everything went smoothly. Jen and Dennis, our chefs and servers were excellent. Their professionalism, friendliness, and perfect timing were impressive. And then there was the food- awesome! Even the local New Englanders were impressed. Compliments are still coming in. The price was a bargain for the quality and service we received. We would Highly recommend this company!
