Food sucked bad was here for a work Christmas party. Had to cut it short and get home the food totally messed my stomach up. On a side note the place was very nice on the inside. I would return if they had better food.

We had an amazing experience there for a funeral luncheon. The room was beautiful, the food was DELICIOUS, and the staff was super friendly and helpful! We over-estimated the number of guests, so the staff very efficiently packaged up the remaining food so we and some of the guests could take it home. It was all top notch, and we couldn't have been happier! Thanks Distinctive Catering!!

Distinctive catered two dinners for our 28 man golf weekend at the Hop and Vine Inn in Saugatuck MI. They were great all through the process, from planning and ordering, delivery, set up, service and clean up. The office and serving staff were professional, capable, friendly and efficient. The food was first rate and there was plenty of it. A first class operation.

Distinctive Catering provided all the food and setup at an outdoor lunch for our business. They exceeded our expectations in every way: arrived early, completely setup on time, cleaned up everything perfectly, and the food and service were outstanding. We will definitely use them again.

We met the team from Distinctive Catering at a wedding expo, and it was talking to their staff (specifically Sarah) that made us excited to book them as our wedding caterer. From day one, they were so quick to respond to all our questions and had clear, upfront pricing that made it easy to work around our budget. On the day of the wedding, everything was set up and ready to go right on time, and a number of guests raved about the delicious food. We were especially impressed with the friendly catering staff and how well they were able to work in our venue’s very limited kitchen space. Wonderful service all around!

We used Distinctive Catering for our wedding September 17, 2016 at the Grandville Banquet Center. Distinctive Catering was awesome! The food was delicious and there was plenty of it. The best part was their staff. They were so friendly and helpful. They went above and beyond, making sure no one went hungry and everything was perfect. They even wrapped up our wedding cake for us and all the left overs as well. They gave us the option to donate them or take them home. We chose to donate the extras to the food kitchen they work with. We thought that was awesome they offer that choice. I would highly recommend Distinctive Catering for any event. *****

Was at wedding reception this past weekend and I must say it’s the worst food I’ve ever had at a party in my whole life. Never do you ever carve prime rib 3 to 5 hours prior to serving it. You are to carve prime rib on site. It was awful. The baked potatoes were black on the inside they might’ve been good 3 to 4 hours earlier. I would never recommend them to cater outside the city limits of Grand Rapids .

We used Distinctive Catering for a family event at West Elementary School. The staff was very professional and helpful, in spite of an extremely hot evening. They were cheerful, and helped us package our leftovers for families. The food was delicious, and made our families feel so special. Distinctive Catering also supported the event as a community partner, which was greatly appreciated and made the whole thing possible. Their consideration for their local schools and families is admirable. Thank you!

We used Distinctive Catering for our Bar service for our wedding reception 2 weeks ago and they were amazing! They were very friendly and very responsive during the whole planning process. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a caterer!

We chose distinctive catering for our October wedding after A) having tasted their food at a previous wedding and being very impressed with how it tasted and B) the price was hard to beat. I enjoyed that the food was ready to go when we got there which is how we planned it. The staff were all very professional and courteous to our guests. After the wedding we had several people rave about how much they enjoyed the food, especially the mashed potatoes. We chose the buffet style but they also had a lot of different options to choose from all of which were reasonably priced. I would recommend distinctive catering to my friends and family.

Kristin Carlesso

We used Distinctive Catering as our caterer for our wedding. They did an excellent job and all of our guests commented on how delicious our food was. They even surprised the groom and I will a few plates of our appetizers at the head table since we didn't make it to cocktail hour. The service was fantastic and you should absolutely book them. To top it all off their prices were the best around.

We used Distinctive Catering for both our catering and bar needs. As an out-of-state bride, I appreciated the responsiveness to my emails and flexibility in me asking for multiple quotes so I could compare my options. I worked with Lindsey to have my MOH & mom attend a tasting event since I couldn't be there. Which was awesome and very helpful! Everyone loved the food (people raved about the salmon!) and our guests said the bartenders were fabulous. We had plated meals - everything came out hot, delicious and timely. Servers were attentive to all our guests needs during dinner and did a wonderful job clearing plates as people finished their meals. Would 10/10 recommend

Pamela Urbanski

Impressed with their food and professionalism... best catering in town

richard DeWinter

Great venue. Great service. Perfect for parties and receptions!

Joseph Ripley

So I'm a little biased because I work here, but the food is very good and we work SO hard to make sure the venue is clean, the events are on point and most of all that the guests are happy. If I ever get married or have a special party, I will happily patronize my own employer.

Sarah Okamoto

The staff for ordering and chosing food and the staff at the tasting were very helpful. The food at the tasting is mostly the upcharge food. The only thing I thought was very inappropriate was the caterer came up to the head table of my wedding to ask me (the bride)details. I should not be the person to ask and I gave them a day of contact. Don't forget to look at all the fees attached. One thing I did like was they packed up all the left overs and left them for me to take home.

Brett Shine

Did a wonderful job for our wedding! So happy

Amy Andrus

Kevin was here for an event last evening and he is welcome back at Beeches Golf Club anytime! He was a pleasure to work with, very professional, and friendly to all. The food was outstanding as well and he accommodated everyone who asked for something.

Shelly DeVries

Was there for a group meeting, which included a buffet meal. Salads were pre-set on the tables - smallest salad I have ever seen with only two choices of dressing. Meal was ok, nothing spectacular.

Vlad Borza

Hosted our High School prom there this April. At first, when I heard about the venue, I was not sure what the quality would be, as a previous organizer had made the arangements, site unseen. From the outside, it is in an inconspicuous location, in the suburban sprawl of Division, but I can tell you, the venue, staff and catering FAR exceeded any expectations I had. Inside, the hall was the perfect size for our group of about 150, and provided ample space for a dance floor, food service area and even included a large working fireplace to set the mood. The food was an option that "we were stuck with" due to the previously made arangements, and it was not something we could opt out. We ended up going with the Signature Buffet, the least costly option, not thinking that the quality would be that great and that most student would not be eating. We were blown away. Everything was stellar. I would not be writing a review, had I not genuinely been favorably surprised by how great it was. The chicken was barbecued on-site, wood smoked, and could smell it getting ready as we were setting up. Something as simple as baked potatoes, were perfectly made, and the sides were excellent - like a real meal, not some cheap knock off. Lastly, the staff was impeccable, highly supportive, easy going, fun and always willing to lend a hand in any capacity. Super impressed by this small venue. If you can get over by its less than glamorous location, you will have a great time at a very reasonable cost.

Lori Kirchmeier

We used them for a company event. The food was great, the staff was professional, friendly and on time. Would hire them again!

Wonderful! I recommend it for any get together! Food tasty and hot. Staff very effective.

Lydia Flickinger

Distinctive Catering is absolutely fabulous. We used their Grandville Banquet Center for our daughter's wedding. They were great to work with ahead of time, and even allowed my daughter to taste-test the menu items. Setup was easy and they had the place looking great. The event itself went perfectly and my daughter commented that it was better than she ever dreamed it would be. We had many comments from guests about the great facility, food, service and the facility-provided DJ - and I agree! Distinctive Catering did everything possible to ensure that everything went well, and they were so nice to work with. I've used Distinctive Catering for other events and they do a perfect job every time!

Darius Johnson

Very nice place

Mike Slabbekoorn

Great staff attending to the wedding reception. Very prompt. The food was excellent.

Brad Thomas

The food is ok, very generic stuff with the disclaimer the quality may not be the same as it was at the tasting. In my opinion a bit of shopping around would be worthwhile.

Eddie Carmona

Used them for our wedding and the steak was perfect! Staff was professional and they presented well! Didn’t hear a single complaint!

Distinctive catering provides exceptional service! Their attention to detail was incredible, the food tasted amazing, and the cost was quite competitive! I would recommend them to anyone in the West Michigan area.

The food tasted like it all came pre-packeged and frozen. I wasn't paying for it I was a guest, but if I were paying I would have been disappointed.

I used Distinctive Catering for Bar and Food service at my wedding in December. They did an amazing job from start to finish. They even went above and beyond. My husband's grandma can't walk well and someone from the serving staff, came to her table and asked if they could get her plate for her. My father in law said she eats a little bit of everything. The staff member then went to the buffet and got a little bit everything. I found this out the next day was blown away by the kindness and consideration. The bar service also remembered my drink, which was a nice touch. Overall, we were so happy and would highly recommend.

Trey Stone

Everyone was VERY professional and friendly, you can tell the staff love what they do

Katie Kruse

Excellent food and staff!

Kelsey Perry

We hired them to cater our wedding and it was absolutely perfect! We loved all of the menu options for many price points and the professionalism of the office staff and servers on site the day of! The linens were nice, although some were stained. The food was delicious!

We used Distinctive Catering for our food & bar service at our wedding! Each person we worked with was incredibly responsive and helpful during the planning process. SO MANY of our guests commented on the quality & taste of the food and the bartenders were so much fun! You really can't beat the incredible quality you get for the price. Both supervisors for food & drink made it a priority to introduce themselves to me at the reception and ensure the food and drink were everything I wanted! Definitely would recommend!


Nice atmosphere. Food was good
