REVIEWS OF The Hindquarter IN Vermont

It blows me away that this company only has 8 reviews. If I could, I would give them 1,000,000 stars. We still cannot believe what an amazing job they did for our wedding, and neither can our guests. People literally stopped me on the dance floor during the reception to gush about how delicious the food was. Now, 3 weeks later, family and friends still want to talk about how good the food was. Luke and his team at the Hindquarter are incredible! From the very beginning planning stages, Luke was phenomenal to work with. His responses were always prompt. When it comes to weddings, he really knows what he is doing, and not just when it comes to the food. When you hire Luke and his team, you get way more than just a caterer. Luke helped us with so much of our planning and coordination. When his team arrived the day of, they took over so that we could relax and they ran things SEAMLESSLY. They were so incredibly helpful and their amazing wood fired cooking tools were great entertainment for our guests. Everything they made for our wedding was delicious and our guests all got plenty of food to be satisfied and fuel their dancing. I cannot say enough good things about The Hindquarter. I would recommend them to anyone for any event!

Hindquarter catered our wedding in 2018. The food was outstanding!! The beef was gorgeous and perfectly seared, the chicken under a brick was tasty, the salad was awesome and the sides were flavorful and also perfectly cooked. We had so many compliments from guests. Many went for seconds and we are still craving thirds ourselves! Hindquarters owner and staff were great to work with. Finally, the grills are fun entertainment for guests. Highly recommended!

The Hindquarter catered our wedding in September 2018. (I had to book them after I saw the pictures of their outdoor cooking over fires!) Luke was a pleasure to work with from the very beginning. We were holding our wedding at a family property in Vermont, so had to "create a venue" there, and Luke had many great ideas and thoughtful questions. He was very communicative working with the tent company. He came out to do a site visit and prepared an amazing tasting for us--one of the best meals of my life! We asked if he could make an eclectic Mediterranean menu and gave him some food ideas. He came up with an incredible menu, and was very accommodating when we told him about guest allergies/diets. We had paella, various crostini, and charcuterie for cocktail hour, and then beef skewers, chicken kebabs, pitas and rotis, hummus and herbed yogurt, eggplant and carrots, and shakshuka. It was all delicious--many guests said it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding. Highly recommend the Hindquarter for their high quality food and customer service. Thank you Luke and the Hindquarter!

From start to finish everything was perfect. Roasted vegetables, lamb chops, chicken, oysters and baba ghanoush during cocktails. Dinner was mushroom polenta, corn succotash, tomato and mozzarella salad and roast chicken. Seasonings were perfect, and so creative, service excellent and the whole team was wonderful! I couldn’t imagine a better dinner service outdoors overlooking Lake Willoughby for my Nephews wedding! Thank you and Cheers!

Luke and The Hindquarter's food was unreal. Everything they did for us from the planning stages, to entertaining our guests with you amazing wood-fired cooking, to serving an unforgettable meal, will stick with us as one of the biggest highlights of our wedding. Food is not something we take lightly... Luke and The Hindquarter crew lived up to every expectation of two major foodies. Many guests commented that the food was the best wedding food they have ever had, some ever going as far as to say it was one of the best meals, period. We have a pretty well-traveled group of friends and family when it comes to weddings, so we take this compliment very seriously, not just kind words. One added bonus of going with Hindquarter as your caterer is you get a built-in show during cocktail hour--the way Luke and his crew grill the food is an absolute sight to behold. We had multiple guests stop us during the night to remark on how cool the caterers were, how fun it was to watch them cook, and how well it fit the vibe of the wedding we were going for. With that being said, I feel like The Hindquarter can fit any wedding. He helped us curtail our menu to be more cost-efficient while still getting our raw bar, charcuterie, and cheese tables, while offering seasonal and truly exceptional meats, pastas, and veggies. If we wanted to, we could have spent more, but we felt we were getting everything we needed from him at a very reasonable price... a price that was competitive or better than other caterers we talked to in the Vermont area. I know that if we talked to them about getting our price lower, they would have helped us make a menu that didn't detract from our day in the slightest. Again, we really can't say enough and think choosing The Hindquarter as your wedding caterer would be an excellent decision. Thank you so so much.

The Hindquarter catered our wedding of ~45 guests in June 2019 on top of Mount Philo in Charlotte, Vermont. From start to finish, everyone we worked with at The Hindquarter was focused on ensuring the food and the experience was exactly what we wanted. We planned things with Luke. He was easy to communicate with, provided relevant details & asked questions about logistics that we might not have thought of on our own, and he quickly responded to emails. We opted to grill food on-site and for guest to pick things up 'buffet style'. We never felt any pressure from Luke to opt for anything more or less formal than what we wanted - he aimed to please! But most importantly...the food was amazing! All of the guests raved about how good the food was. We had a mix of meat, fish, and veggie eaters, and absolutely all items were cooked to perfection and offered a very special treat to those with various dietary choices. Everyone was spoiled! I give the Hindquarter my highest recommendation.

My sister had The Hindquarter cater her wedding this past weekend, about 80 guests. The food was AMAZING! Everyone that I spoke to about the food, was super impressed. The ribs were fall off the bone delicious! I loved the shrimp boil and hush puppies for the appetizer, a touch of spice mixed with the sweetness of the sauce for the hush puppies. I could go on and on - it was that good. If you're looking for quality, delicious food - The Hindquarter can provide! Just awesome!
