I used glory house for my wedding and they were amazing!! The food was delicious and they were super professional. They were my favorite vendor by far. Will be visiting JoAnn at her restaurant when I’m on that side of town. More...

We highly recommend Glory House for all your catering needs! Jo Ann, the owner, is such a delight to work with and helped create a custom menu fitting the amount of guests we needed and allergy preferences. The food was absolutely delicious and did not disappoint!! Thank you Glory House! :) More...
Great lunch buffet, great cream of mushroom soup and salad fixings
Food is excellent!!! It is an all you can eat buffet of southern style home cooking for a very reasonable price. The staff is wonderful and the venue itself is very clean. This is a perfect place to host an event or have an intimate sit down with family.friends. More...
Great hidden place in downtown Irving for food. Unique food choices.
Fresh hot food, quaint setting, great service!!!! Food ranges through mostly american homestyle dishes, something new every day, and great price. I usually shy away from a buffet, but this is one of those rare places that does it right! More...
We worked with Jo Ann at Glory House and our overall experience was great. She worked with us to choose our menu and to fit within our budget. We had several guests comment how good the food was at our wedding! More...
Today was the first time trying this place and it was absolutely amazing! I will definitely return!
Went for breakfast buffet. Little variety but food was excellent! The service was also great! Can't wait to come back and try their lunch which they never have the same thing each day
This is a little gem in the heart of Irving. Jo Ann is wonderful as is the entire staff. Great buffet at lunch,
My wife and I work with young adults @ our church so we go to a lot of weddings. This past weekend was the 1st we’ve been to that was catered by Glory House. The food was excellent. If you’re looking for catering do your family & friends a favor and use Glory House. I’ve never crashed a wedding but if they’re serving Glory House then let the crashing begin. More...
So yummy! They know how to do it up right! Very friendly service, too!

Glory House is wonderful! The Bistro offers a delicious fresh salad bar! I love the tomato basil soup! I have also attended an event (family reunion) at Glory House. The food was delicious! I love the food, the customer service, the relaxing environment. I'll be back again and again! More...
The breakfast tacos in the area! The food, service, and price is fantastic. And to top it off, it is owned by some great people!
I absolutely LOVE the ready to go breakfast tacos! Not your typical fast food breakfast tacos, you have to try them!
if you have not been to Glory House for a KRAIG PARKER show, you are definitely missing out. The food is always delicious......Kraig is always fabulous!!! Kraig is not what I consider an Elvis impersonator, but a true Elvis Tribute Artist. Kraig has sooo much talent; as it says so perfectly on his website, he truly has the moves, the voice, the charisma.....the whole package.
What a DUO......Glory House and Kraig Parker!1!!!! More...
We had lunch there yesterday, (Sunday) wonderful food at a great price and the staff went above and beyond what was expected. I totally recommend Glory House for any of your catering needs More...
Glory House did the most incredible job at the Las Colinas Association ribbon cutting, open house and annual meeting this week! Above and beyond our expectations...and wonderful comments from everyone who attended. Not only was the food perfect, but your attention to detail was fantastic. We wholeheartedly recommend and thank you for taking such good care of us and our guests! More...
Jo Ann is amazing and made sure my event was exactly what we wanted. We hosted about 35 guests for a post-funeral lunch yesterday and it was perfect. The food and service couldn't have been better. Our guests were comfortable and well fed. We received endless compliments about the beautiful reception venue and the spectacular food. Great experience, thank you Jo Ann! More...
Lisa Baker McGee
I had a small intimate wedding at Glory House (Sept 2016)and everything was wonderful. JoAnn was the perfect coordinator. She was always prompt and responsive with communications, and she went above and beyond to accommodate my family and guests on wedding day. The venue was warm and inviting and JoAnn did not hesitate to allow us the freedom to decorate. All of my guests complimented the delicious meal provided by Glory house and the staff was superb! I highly recommend Glory House and would choose them again! More...
You have to try this breakfast buffet. It's not like most of the mediocre buffets you may have tried before. Great HOT food, excellent coffee and attentive service.
As a wedding and special event planner whose been in business for 7 years, I've experienced a wide range of cuisines at all price levels. So when I tell you that Glory House Catering is a delightful hidden gem, you'll know this rating is coming from a professional. Not only is the food delicious and bargain priced, the customer service is excellent, presentation of the food appealing, and atmosphere of the venue is clean, cosy and all inclusive for easy planning. We had a post funeral reception at Glory House and Jo Ann and her staff were a joy to work with. I give them 5 stars and recommend them highly. We will certainly be back for lunch to dine on their fine, affordable cuisine. More...
The grab and go breakfast burritos are delicious!
Just had breakfast at the new buffet - food was wonderful, fresh and good variety. Great service, super clean - a very relaxed enjoyable dinning location. Be sure to give the new owner a chance - lots of great ideas coming to Downtown Irving. Oh and they even have breakfast tacos and coffee to go, quick easy in and out to get you on a great start for your day. More...
Phillip D. Dye
This is the best catering in Irving. The Bistro is a very proper place to have a business luncheon or meeting. The prices are competitive, the food is delicious. The menu changes daily so you can come back often. For a light lunch, you can choose the salad and soup bar instead of the full menu. Plenty of parking and the service is quick leaving you with a lot of time to enjoy a quiet private lunch or discuss business in an impressive atmosphere. More...
Karen Naylor McNamara
I have never been disappointed at Glory House. I've probably eaten most things on the menu, and it is all delicious. Everything is very fresh, seasoned well, and served at the right temperature. The restaurant itself is simple yet elegant. I've gone to several events where they have catered, and it was presented well and everything was good. The breakfast buffet offers a huge variety, I highly recommend it! More...
Wonderful atmosphere! Very quiet & the staff are friendly & pleasant, especially the server Emily! WOW was she great! Loved the selection for entres...very tasty.
Great all the way around from the food to the smiles and service!! Highly recommend.
My boyfriend and I were they as they were change to lunch buffet. We both ordered sandwiches and drinks. Drinks are in what i call mason jars. I have a disable in my hands i was having trouble lifting it( couldnt lift). So my boyfriend ask if they had something lighter for me to use. Do the waitress offered a plastic to go card. Problem was solved and she never batted an eye when asked to help. Sandwiches were great. Lettuce was firm bacon crisp. We will be going back More...
Jo Ann Goin
I had the pleasure of attending Kraig Parkers show Saturday. Needless to say that was my first time to be in your place. It was a wonderful experience all around. The food was out of this world good and the staff was just wonderful. Could not have asked for better people to see to our needs. My best friend Carolyn and I have already paid for our return trip on December 13th for the Elvis Christmas show. Thank you for providing an excellent night for myself and Carolyn. You certainly have not seen the end of us. We are new Kraig Parker fans as Saturday night was only the second time we have seen him. He is a fantastic performer. I wish that I lived in Irving so that I could come to your bistro during the weekday. Fort Worth isn’t that far away but too far to go while working. Carolyn and I are going to try and take a weekday off soon together so maybe we can bring some friends with us and come over. Thank you again for the wonderful experience and will see you soon I hope and for sure December 13th. Regards, Beth More...
Great flavors, great price and selection, and arrived on time. I was referred to Glory House Catering for our business event and took a chance. I'm very pleased with the convenience of ordering and the Grub Hub delivery. The plentiful food arrived fresh, still warm from the oven and plenty of serving utensils. I will certainly use this company all of our upcoming events and recommend you give them a try! Thanks Glory House for making me look like a super hero. The food was delicious and all enjoyed at ASI Architectural Signage. More...
Nice relaxed folksy atmosphere..tasty breakfast buffet..love this place for a morning retreat with my wife!!!
Love it. The food is excellent and the staff is as friendly as you could ever hope for. Seriously, the service is unparalleled. And the food is really good. You should eat there soon and often. I know I will be going back as soon as I can (mostly for the jalapeno cream corn, mmmm...). More...
Great service. Slightly low on selection of food but high in quality and flavor.
I enjoyed the food and the atmosphere
Good salad, good hot foods bar (one of my favorites is Jalapeno creamed corn). Staff is very friendly and efficient.
The Food! The Atmosphere! The Service! All 5
Here for a class reunion. Lovely place, nice for receptions of any kind.
Excellent salad bar with soup and baked potato bar..... always fresh salads and soups made daily!!!!
Simple atmosphere and not enough selection for Buffet prices
Incredible food, service and atmosphere, will definitely go back!
Jo Ann organized my sons graduation party. She made the whole process easy and smooth. She was organized and professional. Food and decor were great. She did an awesome job. More...
Alkmena Blount Barger
DELICIOUS breakfast buffet, with outstanding coffee!! This was our first time here, but we'll definitely be back.
Yum just right mix of breakfast items and awesome coffee ! Teddie there is some bacon left for you !
New ownership is doing some incredible things and has great vision for the future.
I had my son's wedding rehearsal there and I couldn't imagine it would be any better! Everything was perfect. Thank you again for making so special!
Food was not that good, service was great Elvis show was great. Every body was nice and friendly, Will come back
Rosemary Jackson Alexander
I had my 50th wedding anniversary gala at Glory House. JoAnn made it an affair to remember.
Great place. I love it there. Best food you ever ate.
Jo Anne is amazing!!! The food was delicious and so reasonably priced. They are open for lunch during the week which makes tasting a ton of different foods so easy. Jo Anne was such a big help, she handled our rentals and sat down with us to do an itinerary so she could make sure everything went correctly on my wedding day. As much as we changed things or the 1000 questions we had, she was very patient and responded immediately. She also was very helpful with the venue we had the wedding at, working with them many times she was able to help us a lot in that department. Glory House was fantastic and I have absolutely no complaints, except that Jo Anne should get paid more because she's so great at what she does! More...
Perfect place for a small wedding.
We were looking for a place that was affordable given we had a three month planning period. We submitted request to three vendors. JoAnn answered first. I guess it was meant to be.
We wanted one stop shopping to include the ceremony and a reception for 25-40 guests.
JoAnn was extremely professional. She responded to emails in less than 30 minutes most times and she answered the questions that I had. She also served as the coordinator for our wedding. She was very flexible in working with those in our party who couldn't make the same day rehearsal and either walked them through or talked them through their roles.
It was an intimate and beautiful ceremony. Our guests were pleased and the photography even mentioned the beauty of this "unassuming venue" tucked away in Old Irving.
I would recommend Glory House to others. More...
My day couldn't have gobe any better. All of my guest said the food was very tasty. Thanks to Glory house and staff for fantastic day.
I used Glory House to cater my July 12 wedding reception at The Filter Building at White Rock Lake and could not have asked for anything better! Jo Ann is an absolute delight! From the first time I met her, I knew I was in good hands. She made excellent recommendations, was very proactive during the planning process and always offered prompt replies to any requests or questions. During my reception, she took on the role of a coordinator and ensured that everything ran smoothly. On top of all that, the food was DELICIOUS! I had several guests tell me it was the best wedding food they've tasted. I would highly recommend Glory House Catering & Bistro for any event! More...
Great caterer! Food was excellent and staff very friendly and helpful!
I was at the Glory House on Sunday July12th for a Kraig Parker Gospel Show. The seats that Jo Ann put us in was awesome & we could see Kraig with no one in our way. The food was out of sight. I think this was the best meal we have had there. I would say this is a great place to go. More...
Absolutely the best meals! It shows you that delicious meals can be healthy and affordable!
Absolutely the best, healthiest meal I had in a long time! First time today, but I will be back.
Glory House did an outstanding job at our wedding! I was a little worried because Jo Ann was going to be on vacation on the date of our wedding but things turned out perfect. The Glory House staff worked hard to ensure that our guest were happy and well taken care of. We served blackened chicken, Salisbury steak, baked mac and cheese, black eyed peas and Caesar salad. Everything was amazing! The Salisbury steak was absolutely to die for!!! So good! We served the popular cherry mango punch with rum as our signature drink and it was a crowd pleaser. I would highly recommend Glory House! It’s great food at a reasonable price. Thank you Jo Ann and your wonderful staff for doing such a great job! More...
Glory house was absolutly amazing!! my wedding was great the food was Awsome!! I will recomend this place to anyone and i eill be using there service again for something in the near future!!
Glory House implemented my wedding with flawness excellence. Jo Ann worked with us to plan and implement our ceremony and reception. Glory House made the process very easy, especially since we needed guidance! This was our first catered event and I don't know whaty we would have done without Glory House! The food was amazing! I would recommend Glory House to anyone looking for a great value with excellent food and customer service! More...
Can't say enough good things about this vendor. She gives a free tasting and offers a free appetizer if you book on the day of your tasting. JoAnn, the owner, made herself very available and always answered the phone when I called. Not to mention she is VERY affordable! More...
Jo Ann was very helpful to me during my planning stage, and the food was delicious. I got a ton of compliments on the food and all of the chicken was gone by the end of the night. We had salad, roasted veggies, cheese tortellini, spinach & mozzarella stuffed chicken, and brisket with au jus. The only negative was that she was a little difficult for my coordinator to work with the day of. She had attitude about pre setting the tables even though we had agreed on everyone’s duties at the walk through the week before. I also realized the next day that there was no sauce provided for the tortellini, even though we had agreed on having alfredo and marinara sauce available. She did end up refunding me $200 for a verbal agreement that we had that I forgot to get in writing, which I didn’t expect. More...
YUMMY! YUMMY! YUMMY! All the guests loved it! Thank you sooo much! It was on time, hot and delicous! Didn't have too much or too little. Had just a little left over to take home so I felt really good they had the right portions down for the right amount of people. Don't want to run out, but don't want to pay for food you didn't have to. It was PERFECT! Thanks! More...
My husband and I had our wedding at Dallas Heritage Village, also known as Old City Park. Glory House Catering is on their preferred list. We chose to work with Jo Ann Goin because I liked that she was straight to the point. She impressed me as someone who is a no nonsense type and would get the job done right. Do not be turned off by the fact that she is not fake and does not over sell herself. Jo Ann knows how to cater an event! I booked Glory House several months before our wedding and Jo Ann responded promptly every time I had a question. I had heard good things about them so had high expectations of her staff and was blown away at how great they were. I did not need a coordinator for the reception because Jo Ann handled the logistics of the evening personally. She was not hired to do anything regarding the ceremony which was also at DHV and yet she took the time during our final walk-thru to make some much needed suggestions. Our guest list was quite diverse as we had various people in from Europe as well as locals. We received numerous compliments from so many people on the staff, food, and service. I even had people come up to me during the reception to ask me who the caterer was. The evening went smoothly. I was very happy with the demeanor of Jo Ann’s staff. They were dressed sharply and seemed happy to be there. I would highly recommend Glory House Catering to anyone who wants great food, great service, and happy guests!! More...
Jo Ann and her staff are very helpful! This is a one stop shop, but if you'd like to bring in your own centerpieces/decor you're able to do so! She provided a great custom menu (Carnival theme wedding), DJ, Bartender and ceremony decor (candle/unity candle stands, arch). She's also able to help you find vendors for you flowers, cakes, linens, entertainment.... They're great! I highly recommend Glory House! More...
JoAnn catered a buffet at my 200+ guests at my wedding. One of the main reasons I chose Glory House was that I provided my budget, and she created a spreadsheet with the choices I would have for my price range. She also will make appointments for tastings before you've booked - not all caterers will do this, AND provide an itemized list of the costs you can expect. She was always very responsive to emails and phone calls. JoAnn is very to the point - she won't waste your time, which I liked. The food was very good, and we got several compliments from our guests.
She had brought extra food to my event and ended up using all of it, so I was billed extra after my wedding - however, I'm skeptical that I had over 20 extra people show up to my wedding than what I anticipated. To be fair, I did not bring this up with Glory House. I just want other brides to know that they may need to anticipate extra charges afterwards if their guest count is higher than what they anticipated, or if their guests get too many servings of seconds (which they shouldn't need, because the portions were huge!)
I was pleased with Glory House's efficiency, service, and quality. The food was good, I felt like my time was valued during the planning process, and the wedding day went off smoothly. More...
Glory House Catering was wonderful. My husband was worried to do a buffett because he said the food is never tasty. Our food was delicious. Glory House made these bacon wrapped jalapenos that were to die for. The setup was also nice. Glory House was great in setting up two areas; one buffet and an appetizer placement in the gardens we had cocktail hour. They worked well with Events by S&J (my wedding coordinators) in setting up the food tables in the way we had discussed. I would definitely use them again for any other events. More...
Ann and her staff at Glory House were top-notch! I had several other meetings with very well-known, high-end caterers in the DFW area, and they either let me meet with an inexperienced sales person or they dropped me as a client at the last minute when a higher-paying job came in. Glory House was the exact opposite. Jo Ann met with me personally, gave me an exact price in the first meeting, and met me at the venue and at the rental shop. Her staff made sure we were always attended to during our reception, bringing us food and drinks, always staying on top of the next item in the itinerary. They were extremely friendly and caring throughout the entire process. Had I not had the terrible experiences with a few of the big-name caterers in the area, I may never have found Glory House. But I am so glad I found them-they made my reception fun and hassle-free! More...
We have done a lot of weddings with Glory House Catering. They do a great job.

Joann was really responsive and prompt in returning phone calls and she did a lot with our budget. She and her staff were very professional. The food was pretty good.
We choose Glory House Catering first for the economics. Then I went and tasted the food and I was pleased. Over the course of maybe about 8 months before our wedding when I had signed the contract with them, I would think of questions and emailed or called the owner, Jo Ann Goin, who always promptly answered my questions and helped me with whatever I needed. It is not just about the food. If you find a catering team that helps with the set-up and break-down (not the physical tables and chairs) but the decor and overseeing the orchestration of your reception (along with your band or MC) then you have to know that you can communicate with your caterer and that they are willing to help you, not just serve you food. Glory House does all this. They are an awesome team and the team leader of your party is a very important person. We had an awesome one who I had gotten to know months before our wedding reception night so that helped make us feel comfortable that she would make things run smoothly. Little things that you may not even think about as first time bride and groom (or not familiar with throwing a big bash), they will think of and walk you through. They have the personality that they will tell you as much or as little as you want, if you don't want to be bothered. I liked to be part of all the details so they were very nice with me. Granted, they were the biggest ticket item in our whole vendor list (cost alot of money to feed alot of people) but they worked with us the closest of anyone and I really appreciated the availability that provided of themselves to us in answering questions, etc. I would highly recommend them. I am a real bride. We were married in May 2009 at Texas Discovery Gardens. I have nothing negative to say about Glory House Catering!!!! More...
Their food is delicious and affordable. Presentation was beautiful and again super friendly. The spinach dip is by far the best I have ever had :)
We booked Receptions On The Main approximately a month before my daughter's wedding. Jo Ann Goin, the owner, was very gracious, and provided everything we needed for planning the entire ceremony and reception including appetizers, a full buffet, table and chair cover rentals, flowers, wait staff and an appointed host to organize the event. She also provided referrals for the bar and the D.J.
All of the guests were very complimentary on the elegance, food, and service from Receptions On The Main. I love the location in the old downtown historic area of Irving. The downtown square is very beautiful and Receptions on the Main caps the ambiance of the Heritage District.
I would highly recommend Receptions On The Main. Not only was the service and professionalism top notch, the cost was also minimal compared to other venues. I love giving my business to other independent business owners. Jo Ann Goin is one of the best.
Donna Wall, mother of the bride
There is no possible way our wedding could have been better! The attention to detail shows in JoAnns years of catering experience. Our guests raved and raved over the food, the service and the venue. We can't thank Glory House enough for making our wedding perfect! More...
Amazing food and Amazing service! The entire crew came into my wedding and executed like they were marines. I was really nervous about the transition from the ceremony to reception, and they hit a home run.
Additionally, my husband and I had requested a plate of food be prepared and waiting for us, and they did it. So, unlike many brides who say they never got to eat a bite...I had a whole plate of food, and it was wonderful!
You can't go wrong with Glory House, and they will be sure to execute to your every wish. More...
Being an event coordinator I was apprehensive about finding a caterer at the last minute and staying within a lower budget. I assumed I could only have one or the other...GLORY HOUSE DID NOT DISAPPOINT! They were extremely flexible and offered menu suggestions that kept the couple within their specified budget. I was happily surprised by the cost and the food arranged. It looked as if the couple spent much more than $700. JoAnn and her team were considerate and above all professional. I will definitely use them and/or suggest their services in the future. Thanks and many blessing to you!

Glory House Catering catered my wedding in July 2003 in Waco, TX., I can say that the food was the only thing on that day I did not have to worry about. We had decided on a menu and I changed my mind after a couple of days. I gave them a call to see if it was to late to change the menu and they had no problems with the changes and worked with me on my new menu idea. When I showed up at the reception I was blown away by how beautiful and elegant the food was. They helped my day be even more special. Everything was perfect. I have attend numerous events catered by Glory House Catering and everyone was wonderful. I have refered them to everyone I know. More...
Glory House Catering is exceptional and I would recommend it to anyone. The reception hall is elegant and staff is very professional. The owner, Jo Ann, pays attention to every little detail to make sure everything is done and to make sure we were satisfied. My daughter, who is a picky eater, loved the food. I have used this catering company for a business breakfast and a luncheon in the past and everyone loved it. More...
Glory House Catering was absolutely wonderful to work with. They were very attentive to my thoughts and ideas, and even helped out in various other areas of my wedding. I would definitely recommend them for having outstanding service and helpful all around. More...
Jo Ann and her staff were wonderful from the moment we first walked in for our tasting! Every detail was professionally taken care of so that we could truly enjoy our big day without worrying over the food. Guests are still raving about the yummy desserts! More...
Glory House was truly a blessing for our wedding day. The entire staff from the very beginning was so great to work with. They helped us in every aspect from planning to final execution. The staff members were always very repsonsive and helpful no matter how small the question. We were completely blown away by how good the food was and we were constantly being told by all of our guests that everything was great. All of this service and quality and they were completely able to stay within our budget. Like a said......truly a blessing! Thanks for everything Glory House. More...
We would absolutely recommend Glory House as your caterer. Everyone was extremely professional and all questions we had were answered very promptly. They thought of everything (even things I didn't think of) which made our wedding day that much less stressful. The food was great and the display was beautiful. They even packed us a "to go" meal and cake for the hotel. I was very happy with Glory House and know you'll be pleased, too, if you choose them! More...
