We had a small family wedding a few days after Christmas while on vacation in Ft Myers Beach. I contacted Ron and he was a pleasure to work with. He helped us design a meal within our budget and was helpful in providing rental services too. Everything we needed was delivered to the house on time.
The food was amazing. It was freshly made, and exceeded our expectations. We couldn't be happier with the food and service. Thanks for helping to make our son's wedding so memorable!

Ron exceeded our expectations when he catered a Merry Christmas breakfast for us at Anchor Church on December 24, 2018. The food was fantastic and presented in an artful way! People especially enjoyed the Vanilla French Toast and fruit cups. I will definitely be calling on Ron and Bernwood Catering for my future party needs! Thanks, Ron!

Again Chef Ron was everything we needed , as we had hired him and his crew many times in the past, (birthday breakfast, Christmas dinner, and party event) we knew he would be perfect for our most recent Christmas party. The food was awesome, his crew was very efficient, friendly and professional. We had an awesome bartender, they passed out food to our guest and even cleaned up at the end . They really made our party special and we could focus on having a great time because they took care of everything . Thank you guys very much, we will definitely book again and recommend them.

At the Fred Astaire Dance Studios of Bonita Springs it’s a tradition to host every year a Christmas Party to appreciate our students.
Two years in arrow we use Bernwood catering for our most important party of the year. Chef Ron always does an outstanding job from helping us with a menu, delivering and setting the table in the most elegant way.

Caterers are for two things: 1) great food and 2) excellent service. Bernwood Catering is the place to go for both. Ron’s VERY quick response was professional and helpful - reasonable prices, and flexibility to change the menu to my wants is important. The day-of service was very impressive. The food was absolutely delicious. I highly recommend, all around excellent.

Chef Ron did a great job catering our building Christmas party. 65 people with passed hors d’oeuvres on one floor and buffet sit down dinner on another. The mirrored cheese, fruit, veggie and meat tray was displayed like a piece of art work. Guests raved about the spring rolls. The standing roast prime rib carving station was a hit. Meat was tender and a perfect medium rare. Chicken, salad and pasta were very good. Our group was extremely pleased! He has efficient polite staff assisting. We highly recommend him!

I recently hired Bernwood Catering for my fiance 50 th birthday party. I give Ron and his crew 5 stars. The food was plentiful and delicious. The presentation of the food was creative. My guests commented to me throughout the evening how friendly and attentive Ron and his staff were serving dinner and drinks. Ron personally worked the room serving appetizers. I was impressed that Ron went a step further and put in the extra effort to make my fiance birthday party special. I would definitely use Bernwood Catering for my next event

Chef Ron was a pleasure to work with from start to finish for my wedding catering needs. We had just about 100 people, and I had made a lot of changes in my menu and number of guests. Ron was nothing but accommodating with each change. We value Ron as someone we can use in the future for all of our catering needs. Aside from his friendly, outstanding service, his food is simply delicious. There was something for everyone. I really enjoyed the staff and professionalism they displayed. We will be using Bernwood Catering again. Highly recommended!

Bernwood Catering came to my rescue when my Naples neighbor lost their brother unexpectedly. I was out of town but wanted to help in some way. Flowers are nice but I thought a meal would help relieve some of the every day burden. I googled caterers and found Bernwood...their website far surpassed the others. I reached out to them as they appeared to offer just what I was looking for. Chef Ron immediately responded, offered suggestions within my budget, and delivered a meal within 24 hours. My neighbors were so pleased and said the meal was wonderful. Chef Ron even emailed me pics of the meal! Would definitely recommend Bernwood and will use again for my future catering needs. Great job, Chef Ron. Really appreciate how easy you made it, attention to detail, and your responsiveness.

5 30/10/2018 Jason Pruitt

My wife and I were looking for a caterer when Ron contacted us. He asked what we were looking for, the budget which we had, and got started. During this process like any couple would do we sought other caterers and restaraunts who provided a similar service, but it was Ron's motivation and persistence which finally sold me. His crew only had a 2 hour prep window for hour 150 guest reception. He blew it out of the park with his excellent staff and service. And better yet his staff returned everything back to the way it was when the event was over. I am writing this testimonial to tell you that Ron is the man for the job and will recommend to anyone planning a catering event. Thanks again Ron.

Chef Ron HITS IT OUT OF THE PARK! We had nearly a dozen people vacationing in a beach rental for a week and no one wanted to cook - or fuss having to dress up and drive to go out to eat. For less expense and zero hassle, Chef Ron provided breakfast, lunch and dinner all week, and all I can say is, WOW. From the word “Go”, Chef Ron made it effortless. He did everything. He is the consummate caterer…professional and reliable, yet easy-going and accessible. He’s both helpful and innovative, possessing the creative gift of working with you to suggest an ultimate experience. Chef Ron cares about the entire process and it shows. His food is mouthwatering and his presentations are fabulous. We wanted a casual, relaxing week where food would be a highlight, not an issue, and Chef Ron really delivered. The experience was so wonderful, that we are already looking forward to our next vacation here and the delightful thrill of anticipating Chef Ron’s next fabulous meal. Home run.

Thanks so much. Looking forward to seeing the whole family again for any of your catering needs. Chef Ron

Our experience was nothing short of OUTSTANDING. You can feel confident when you hire Chef Ron. Great customer service. Experienced. Professional. Fun. Here's our story... We wanted a caterer for the week to make our family vacation more relaxing. Who wants to cook on vacation? Not me. There were 10 of us, which made the cooking task daunting. Chef Ron took the stress away. He took the time to help me with all the meal planning so we would be 100% organized for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. He even prepared a picnic for us the night we took a sunset boat cruise. It was fabulous. Chef Ron is incredibly responsive at all times (I don't think he sleeps!). And he is extremely reliable (not all vendors are, unfortunately). Best of all, everyone enjoyed his food. It was all delicious and presented beautifully. We will hire him again the next time we visit Florida. 20 enthusiastic thumbs up from us!

Once again, Ron hit it out of the park for us. We hosted 34 people for a rehearsal dinner at our home, complete with table rentals, linens, chairs, dishes, flatware, and of course FOOD. We had beautiful appetizers (the spinach-artichoke spread was not like the usual thick goopy was fresh, light, and really delicious), tapenade, homemade parmesan crisps (he needs to sell these retail!) and bruschettas, along with little mini-platters of cheeses decorated with vegetable "animals". Very creative. Buffet consisted of scrumptious stuffed grouper, mushroom risotto, lamb chops, chicken saltimbocca, two salads, and fresh homemade rolls (which all the guests raved about and which I was in error in asking Ron not to make a roll for each person.....we ran out because of my mistake and people complained that I shortchanged them because these rolls are divine!) Ron and his kitchen staff were efficient, professional, and the two servers he brought with him were attractive, thoughtful and well spoken. Dessert was another hit with mini creme-brulees, fruit tarts, & chocolate covered strawberries. We have used Bernwood in the past for a 200-person open house with a complete bar/bartender service, and for a small 30 person dinner which I just bought the prepared food for from Ron and served that myself. He can do anything you like, and he will work with your budget. His clean-up is thorough, which is a big help when you have a house full of guests getting ready for a wedding the next day!

Chef Ron did an outstanding job of coming in at the last minute for us to save the day with his delicious menu! Our school spring festival would have seriously lacked in the area of good eats if Ron had not agreed to come in when we lost our other major food vendor. Thank you Ron for your professionalism, flexibility, and excellent food!

My sister and I met with Ron to go over some options for her retirement party. We told him that there would be approximately 40 people and told him what our budget was. Ron came up with an AWESOME menu.The day of her party Ron was just going to drop off the food but he arranged the buffet for us and even stayed to make sure that everything was just right. The food was FANTASTIC AND DELICIOUS. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Ron and would definitely call him if we ever have another event. Thanks again Ron you are AWESOME!!! Carol K. Fort Myers

Berwood catered a tropical themed business event for 250+ for us. Ron & the staff at Bernwood were exceptional. He offered me several fantastic options within our modest budget and theme. The food tasted fantastic! Service was great and very professional. We have received so much positive feedback on the event from our clients. We look forward to working with you again.

So the original caterer I wanted to use for my wedding was unavailable. With only 3 weeks til my wedding I saw some of the reviews for Ron and decided I would meet with him. I told him what I was looking for and he took my ideas and ran with it.
Having been in the business myself in the past, I was in constant contact with Ron to make sure things were in order. Ron was patient and very professional.
Admittedly, up til the day of the event, I had my concerns (just how I am).

Wedding was a large Garden Reception at a residence, with no available oven onsite.

Despite a less than perfect venue, Ron and his team went above and beyond any of my expectations. Presentation, taste, service, more than I could have asked for. You name it and he excelled!

Ron even surprised us with things I didn't ask for.

The Prime Rib was awesome. Tender, juicy and flavorful. No fancy seasonings here. Ron lets the flavor of his food shine.
Prosciutto wrapped Asparagus, Coconut Shrimp, Bronzed Grouper.....just a few of the flavorful delights.
Each guest we've talked to has raved about how great the food was.

5 Stars across the board......thank you so much for making our special day even more special!

Ronald Casterline, owner/operator of Bonita Springs, Florida's Bernwood Grille and Catering Company ranks, in my opinion among the best in all of SW Florida. His Meditteranian and Greek specialties are the best ever. I am a regular customer always choosing the Grille as the best place for lunch/brunch. They're located on Old 41 in Bonita. If you're visiting the area for the first time be sure to stop in, meet Ron, and sample his many food choices made with love. Be sure to tell him GG sent you!

Used Bernwood to cater Valentines Day party for 24 people. They provided all of the food which was excellent. Guests loved the appetizers and especially the hors d'oeuvres; water chestnuts wrapped in bacon, stuffed mushrooms, coconut shrimp. We chose prime rib and chicken picatta for entrees and it was super. The prime rib was so tender it could have been cut with a fork. We've already recommended them to friends for their upcoming events. We decided to have them provide a full time bartender (JR was outstanding) and service people. Ray & Dianne

My first trip to bernwwod grille and I loved the food. The blackened chicken Waldorf salad I had was delicious. The chicken was so juicy with loads of flavor and the rest of salad was so fresh. My boyfriend had the grouper wrap with fries and a cup of Italian chicken soup. He ate it all and expressed how fresh and tasty it all was. We will definitely go back when in the area.
We also meet the owner and chef Ron who was very pleasant.
I have seen the other reviews here on yelp and am sorry to read these reviews. All I know is that our experience here was wonderful. You should give it a chance for lunch and enjoy the food.

I needed a caterer last minute for my parents Anniversary party. I made several calls, but Chef Ron’s turn around time and fair pricing appealed to me. He did not fail to deliver. He did all of the set up and staged the food beautifully. Best of all, our guests really enjoyed the food - delicious!

I own the Fred Astaire Dance Studio of Bonita Springs and we organize all kind of dancing events and parties on a regular basis. Ron Casterline and his Bernwood Catering Co helped us a few times with their catering and even rentals for the party. All our participants and guests were absolutely impressed and delighted with the quality and variety of the dishes as well as tasteful and beautiful way of presenting them. No doubt we are going to use Bernwood Catering Co for our future events and we highly recommend them!

Ron from Bernwood Catering did a fantastic job. We had Easter Brunch for 35 with assorted foods and an omlette station. The presentation was amazing and the food tasted great. The personnel was very friendly, efficient and professional. Our guests were delighted .

We had a great catered meal for my birthday from “Bernwood Catering” Bonita Springs Florida. Thanks to Chef Ron and Chef Jerry for a great meal. Although it was a small group they did an outstanding job and l would use them and recommend them for future affairs. The appetizers and desert trays were particularly good.

Chef Ron did a spectacular job with our private 1920’s themed party. The food was amazing. The appetizers and dinner received so many positive comments from all our guests. Chef Ron met with me, quickly planned the event and then he excecuted it with excellence. His staff was wonderful. James cooked the food to perfection and Jerry was a very good bartender and manager of the night, and Rachel and Sandy made sure the night was perfect.
I highly recommend Chef Ron and Bernwood Catering. They are extremely professional and will make your event seamless.
