Janet was our baker, she created our wedding cake. My husband and I are vegan; we knew an all vegan wedding wasn't going to be an option, but we did want vegan cake. Janet was amazing! When we had our tasting; she created four different cakes for us to sample, they were all so delicious we ended up moving forward with all. We had 2 sheet cakes and a 2 tier naked wedding cake that had some flowers and greenery added. Everyone was over the moon with the cake and no one knew it was vegan! It was so flavorful; Janet was so helpful and it was so nice seeing her beaming face the day of when she checked in about cutting the cake and serving it! It was so scrumptious and we would use Janet in the future if another cake is needed!! More...

We had a wedding of 200 guests and Maria was amazing! We went through her to get all the linen and tableware rentals as well as the bar- everything was great! Super friendly staff, great food, knowledgeable on what we’d need for our bar and very flexible. Price was amazing as well! Would recommend her to anyone. More...

Maria's food is the closest thing to fine dining in a catering company that I've ever experienced. I've had her food a great many times and it always is a treat to my tastebuds. I wish I could pay her to be my personal chef. More...

I attended an event catered by Ball ‘N Biscuit Catering this weekend and was simply blown away. The food was sublime. We were served course after course of both wonderfully imaginative dishes and perfectly executed classic favorites. Presentation was beautiful & timed perfectly. I highly recommend Ball ‘N Biscuit!

I had the great pleasure of attending a pop-up restaurant dinner catered by Maria and the Ball’N Biscuit staff. Over the course of three quickly fleeting hours, we were serve twelve courses, tapas style. Each course was simply delicious. It is quite an achievement to whip up twelve individual courses and manage to make each of them unique and absolutely mouth-watering. Everyone at our table was raving about the food. Even though we were all satiated, we were still wanting more because the dishes were so good.The execution and presentation of the meal was flawless and the evening seemed to fly by as we welcomed each course with renewed amazement. From classics like roast beef with horseradish sauce to creative new entrées like a savory cheese meringue - it was all top-notch and I look eagerly forward to the next time I can attend one of Ball’N Biscuit’s extraordinary events.

We used Ball N’ Biscuit for our wedding this past weekend. To say that they were fantastic would be an understatement. Weddings can be stressful and Maria did everything in her power to ensure our happiness. The food wasn’t amazing and all of my guests had only great things to say about it. The day of the wedding I had made a request for coffee because it was going to be cold and she accomidated without any fuss. They made me a separate plate of appetizers since I was busy being the bride and made sure I had everything I needed. The team was kind, caring, and super respectful. If ever I have to cater an event in the future I will only use their service! More...

I attended an event that was catered by Ball 'n Biscuit. One of my good friends was my 'hot date' to said event. The food was very innovative, fresh, and we still talk about that tiramisu to this day. I'll definitely be hiring this company when I walk down the aisle. :) More...

We had Ball n Biscuit for our wedding this summer. We had about 80 people in a venue with a small kitchen. Maria always responded to us in a short amount of time with any questions. Our wedding lunch included BBQ Seitan (a delicious veggie "meat" alternative), Mexican style chicken, rosemary potatoes, and all of the fixings for build-your-own tacos and BBQ sandwiches. Everything was delicious! Most of our guests were from Wisconsin and were not put off by a veggie meat alternative like seitan. I think most of them actually thought it was meat (we did have allergens listed). The staff cleaned all of the plates and cutlery, which we had provided ourselves. The bartender was gracious and worked our open bar well. The staff was even willing to help with (pre-specified) clean up things like loading cars at the end of the evening. So happy I went with Ball n Biscuit. More...

Ball'n Biscuit catered a wedding for my wife and I. Maria was awesome from the start, very accommodating, easy to work with and best of all, the food was awesome! We had lots of compliments from our guests the day of and the days following the wedding.I would definitely recommend working with Maria if you ever have a chance! More...

We chose Ball n Biscuit to cater our wedding. Maria is great to work with. She's very understanding and down to earth. The food was amazing, and even the pickiest of eaters were full by the end of the night! We didn't break the bank and had plenty of food left over. The drink coordinator took a while to respond to emails, so there was a delay in confirming the details. However, they had decent knowledge of what was going to be needed to keep our guests hydrated and happy. :) More...

I hired Ball 'n Biscuit Catering for an open house event at my studio.  I needed a caterer who could handle a specialty menu - namely, vegan and gluten free.  Ball 'n Biscuit delivered the most amazing, scrumptious food - all displayed beautifully.  My guests were thrilled with the food - and the best part?  It didn't break my budget!  Maria and Co. were total pros from start to finish.  It's not easy finding a caterer who can work with special diets - but Ball 'n Biscuit came through and wowed us!  I highly recommend these guys - and have recommended them to other friends for weddings and other events.  Not surprised to hear that they raved too.  I cannot say enough good things about these guys - hire them with quickness!

We could not possibly have been happier with Maria. Nearly 6 months after our wedding and people are STILL raving about how good the food was. More than that- we came to Maria with a rough idea about wanting a culinary trip around the world. She delivered on our concept with empanadas, Thai salad, and so much more. She was wonderful to work with. I've recommended her to everyone I know!!! More...

Ball N Biscuit was absolutely fantastic. We really didn't want the cookie cutter "saucey chicken" that you have at every wedding. In addition we had a lot of dietary restrictions (my husband is vegetarian, we have several friends and family that are diabetic/celiac/vegan etc). BNB came up with an awesome menu to accomidate everyone that was awesomely delicious to boot. Then 2 days before my wedding a crazy family member called and made several changes/additions to my menu which Maria totally took in stride. She handled everything so professionally and everyone was happy with the end result. I got so many wonderful compliments on my food especially the meatballs! On top of it all it was awesomely affordable. More...

I had Ball 'N Biscuit cater my wedding on May 24, 2015, and IT WAS AWESOME! The whole experience of working with Maria was fantastic. For our tasting at her house, (which by the way I loved because it felt so warm and inviting) she had asked us what we were looking for and what we were into, and then when we arrived, she made EXACTLY what we said. The food was delicious and I could tell was made with love! We also asked her to make a Filipino dish for us (chicken adobo) which she had never made before, but having tasted her food, I had no doubt Maria would deliver. She allowed us a second tasting for that, and just as I had suspected, it was delicious and just like my mama made it (but don't tell her that!). On the day of our wedding, her head chef Martha and head server Jeannie were fantastic as well as all of the servers who helped us that night. Everyone gave the food rave reviews. The only thing I'm really bummed about is that my nerves that night made it difficult for me to stuff my face the way I really wanted to!All in all, Maria and everyone at Ball 'N Biscuit are the best, and if you're looking for amazing food to make your event special, look no further! :) More...

I can't say enough amazing things about This company. We had a large wedding at Turner hall and Maria was able to provide me with amazing food, displayed beautifully, and all within my budget without compromising the quality and freshness of the food. Her staff was very friendly and professional. Maria had great suggestions and her catering experience allowed everything on my wedding day to go smoothly without any issues at all. They were also very accommodating to special requests or needs as well. If you are doing any event or wedding-- you are going to want to go with ball n biscuit! More...

I had a four month engagement and needed to find a caterer in Milwaukee that could accommadate my requests for decent food and my husband's requests for Russian food. There is no russian catering in Milwaukee minus one place on 76th and silverspring that basically requires a package w the hall which several Russians had commented the food wasn't that great anyways. Maria and Daniel were the only caterer in Milwaukee that would take our requests and in our tasting attempted to make some home made Russian food for my future mother in laws approval. We also had requests for multiple food courses family style spread out through hours of our wedding which is a rather unique wedding request. We ended up combining Maria's veggie empanadas with Daniel's guinness braised short ribs which were a total hit with our crowd. Also had charcuterie and pickled veggies for initial courses to strike a chord with the vodka bottle service. Sad to hear of Daniel's passing and I'm not sure where ball and biscuit is headed next but I would recommend them for wedding catering. More...

The food is AMAZING and the price is unbeatable. Maria & Daniel basically operate out of their own kitchen/a co-op in Riverwest, so they have no overhead and are able to provide great service at a great price.

They excel not only in vegan/vegetarian and gluten-free menu options, but Daniel is a master of meat. The pork tenderloin we had at our tasting and again at our wedding was the best I've had in my life, and many of our guests said the same. You have to pay for your tasting, but the money you put down is considered paid toward your overall cost should you choose to go with them. If you try them, you will understand that this is a worthy investment as the food is too good to say no to.

I was a little concerned leading up to the wedding because I was afraid they seemed a little disorganized or out of sorts (hence the 4 stars for responsiveness), but I could tell that once "wedding season" begins, they are completely in their element. Everything went off without a hitch, and they are so committed to providing excellent service.

Literally about a week before the wedding I told Maria "I want a late-night taco bar." She says "We can make that happen," and it did, and it was amazing. We were able to feed close to 150 people for about $6,000 — that included passed appetizers, family-style service, cake-cutting, a "coffee bar" with dessert and a late-night taco bar.

The team of servers is hand-picked from local service staff throughout Milwaukee since they don't actually employ all of them year-round, so you're getting the best of the best in the local service industry.

Ball 'n Biscuit is a great local company, and I can't wait to recommend them to anyone I can and hopefully to book them for any other smaller events I may need catering service for in the future.

Love Ball N' Biscuit! They just catered our wedding and we cannot say enough positive things about them. We connected with Dan and Maria right from the start and knew that they were just what we were looking for. The food that they created for our 150 + event was incredible. They used organic, local, and sustainable ingredients which was very important to us. We received so many compliments. Their staff were professional, kind, and incredibly helpful. We adored all of them. This is definitely your caterer if you are looking to host an event that will be talked about for a very long time. More...

Ball 'n Biscuit catered a recent wedding, and it was great! It was nice that the couple was able to support such a wonderful local business, and that we the guests were treated to such a nice meal.We had a vegetarian Mexican buffet, which was a very nice change from standard wedding food. My only complaint was the rice was way too hot. I'm kind of a wuss when it comes to spicy food, but everyone at my table commented how uncomfortably hot it was, so it definitely wasn't just me. But other than that, we had soy chorizo with grilled veggies tacos and potato & black bean empanadas, along with some great sides. More...

I can't say enough wonderful things about Ball & Biscuit! We first met with Dan and Maria last year about catering our wedding - we love Mexican food and were having a difficult time finding someone who wasn't the cookie-cutter caterer and was into Mexican. The bottom line:

-the food was incredible. Seriously on par with the best Mexican restaurants I've been to (um, a ton). Not only did we get a great selection of fresh veggies, tortillas, two salsas, guacamole, etc., but the meat was top-notch. Tender, juicy steak. Yum, drool, etc. And oh yes, a very vegan-friendly meal! (Though as you could probably tell, I am not a vegan myself)

-Dan and Maria are truly great vendors. We were in touch for well over a year and they were always responsive and considerate of our budget. We found the cost to be very reasonable - especially given the quality of the food and service! - and their recommendations also reasonable and worth taking. And when we had to fit in a last-minute pie pick up, they picked up the errand without issue.

Awesome food and professional etiquette. We've already had requests from some of our guests to inquire about the catering since it was so above and beyond. You won't regret hiring Ball & Biscuit!

My daughter was married December 3, 2011 at the Pabst Mansion in Milwaukee.We sampled a few caterers and were disappointed in the food.  It was heavily processed and actually pretty bad. Then we came upon Ball'N Biscuit catering.Maria and Dan are passionate about food and have a dedication to their customer and their craft.They were extremely accomodating to our needs including vegan requests, small special order for my dad,  bartending requests to name a few.The food is all from scratch and award winning recipes.  We received rave reviews.The empanadas, Pulled pork sandwiches, salads, everything was delicious.The staff is amazing and I highly recommend the bartending service they have as well.Daniel and Maria care, know their business, are flexible, and fun.  But most of all the food is fresh and delicious.  Lastly, Maria is so amazingly prompt she returns phone calls and emails so fast you won't believe it.  It made everything stressless.Natalie Gokey More...

Dear Ball'N Bisquit Catering,     I met you at the WMSE Chili Cook-off today. Both folks at your booth were very nice. You introduced me to your friend "The Devil's Taint". My eyes watered, my rosacea flared up and my roommates brow sweated profusely. Hours later, it provided great discomfort to both of our asses. I like your sense of humor almost as much as I liked your chili. Well done!Your new friend,Kip More...

Maria and Daniel did such an excellent job catering my wedding a couple of weeks ago that I felt obligated to spread the word about their fantastic business. Ball'N Biscuit Catering is wonderful, well priced, and professional. They will work with you to create whatever kind of menu you can dream of and will present it in a well thought out way.  Everything was done beautifully and I am still receiving compliments from my guests about how good the food was.  They worked within my tight budget and gave us everything we could have hoped for. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a well priced and creative catering option for any type of special function. I would use them again in a second! More...
