I can not tell you enough how much we loved working with Mountain Laurel Catering!! When planning our wedding food, it was my biggest desire to not have "typical" wedding food, and Mt. Laurel absolutely delivered that! Our guests commented over and over again that it was "the best wedding food they had ever had"-and I totally agreed with that! I loved that we could personally choose our own menu based off of our favorite foods. Their flavor combinations and creativity were wonderful. I also have a food allergy, and Mt. Laurel went above and beyond to make sure that all the food was "safe". They were punctual, efficient,incredibly kind and easy to work with! They seriously made our planning process and our wedding so great! I would TOTALLY recommend them to anyone! More...

Sarah, Pat & their entire team are amazing!! Mountain Laurel Catering has quickly become my favorite caterer! Their dedicated service and attention to detail are stellar. Their preparation of food and their out of the box menus are to die for. If you're looking for a caterer for your next event, look no further. More...

If you want unique, delicious tasting food that will impress not only your guests but even your other vendors then you NEED to book with Mountain Laurel. I've been to quite a few weddings and most wedding food I've tasted has been fairly bland & run of the mill, but Mountain Laurel is an entirely different experience. My sister-in-law and her husband used Mountain Laurel for their wedding and the minute we tasted the food we were blown away and knew we had to book with them. We met with Chef Pat & Sarah the day of our tasting and their cute little kitchen was all set up for the tasting. We mentioned to Chef Pat that we both loved the renaissance faire and wanted to do a modern spin on a medieval feast. Chef Pat though of such creative ideas to incorporate our theme into modern dishes that people would actually want to eat. The day of the wedding both them and their staff were extremely pleasant, accommodating, & gave us that "don't you worry about a thing we will take care of it" attitude. Not only did they do an amazing job all around but they even gave us a sweet card & champagne gift. Even our wedding photographer (who obviously has been to countless weddings) told us that it was EXCEPTIONAL wedding food and that she hasn't come across food of that quality at weddings ever before!! If you want unique, amazing tasting food look no further than this sweet, down to earth, talented husband & wife duo!! More...

Mountain Laurel did an INCREDIBLE job catering our wedding. We have a variety of dietary restrictions in our families, and they were able to accommodate with ease. The food was delicious. They were flexible with changes we made through the planning process, and skillfully adapted to our venue and time time limitations. Not only did everything go as planned, but it was all stellar. We are so grateful to Lauren and the whole crew. More...

Chef Pat and Sarah are incredible humans! They made our wedding a day to cherish forever. We were recommended by our venue's director Lauren at Historic Shady Lane and couldn't be happier! They were so easy to work with and accommodated all of the random little requests we had for our meal. Before the wedding, we met with Pat and Sarah for a tasting and were blown away! Everything they created was not only delicious but beautiful! On the day of the wedding, their team out-did themselves. Our guests were amazed by how gorgeous every element of the food was. I still dream about the bread and home-made spreads! If you're looking for a caterer full of great people who make affordable yet way too delicious food for the price this is your place! More...

Mountain Laurel catered our 130-person wedding on a family farm. Working with them was probably the best wedding decision we made- they were flexible and accommodating of our non-traditional venue, and created a menu that really blew us away for an excellent value. So many guests told us it was the best food they'd ever had at a wedding. We feel really lucky to have found them and would absolutely recommend. More...

We have used Mountain Laurel for my Father’s 100th Birthday and most recently my daughter’s wedding. Sarah, Pat and their staff have been nothing short of fantastic! The food for both events was delicious. They were very accommodating and responsive to our needs and requests. The staff was very friendly and served our guest with a smile and cleaned up without anyone hardly noticing. All in all they all were great for both events! More...

Mountain Laurel took amazing care of us and our guests at the wedding. The staff was over the top helpful, incredibly positive, and really helped make our special day the best! The food was fantastic and the bartender knowledgeable. The owners really went out of their way to make sure every detail was exactly what we wanted, and even provided recommendations for other vendors in the area that could help with other rental needs for the best price. I would absolutely use Mountain Laurel again at my next wedding! Chances are I'll only get this one though, so I couldn't recommend it enough! More...

Mountain Laurel saved the day at our Farm to Table event! We had many more guests than we had counted on sign up at the last minute, and Pat and Sarah and their staff quickly arranged for twice as many hors-d'oeuvres as we had originally ordered. And their creations were imaginative, varied, and delicious! Many, many thanks! More...

I can't say enough about how amazing Sarah and Pat are! They are an incredible team who created the most delicious menu for our wedding and executed it to perfection. Not only are Sarah and Pat wonderful people who made us feel that we were in the best of hands, but they are also talented professionals with outstanding resumes. Happy to accommodate our desire for a vegetarian menu, Chef Pat gave us many creative options and allowed us to taste and refine to our hearts' content. On our wedding day, they calmed the chaos and attended to details we forgot (since we, unlike they, have never planned an event of this size). We literally could not have done it without them! Everyone on their staff was extremely friendly, helpful, and contributed to the magic of the day. All our guests (even the meat eaters) were raving about the food and how original and delicious it was. I would eat Chef Pat's pear gazpacho shooters with cucumber kimchi every day if I could! Sarah and Pat's thoughtfulness, attentiveness, professionalism, and talent cannot be lauded enough and I recommend them to anyone planning an event and looking for an exceptional caterer. More...

We hired Mountain Laurel Catering for a baby shower and were blown away by the elegance they brought to our event with their spectacular menu, presentation, and exceptional service. Sarah made communication an absolute pleasure from our first phone call to our hugs goodbye! It started with the most creative, thoughtful, and mouthwatering menu proposal that went far beyond our expectations considering our budget requirements and the distance they traveled to our event. On the day of we watched in delight as Sarah, Patrick and their staff set up and each menu item was more beautifully presented than the next. The fruit kabobs could have been centerpieces!! In addition to taking care of everything food related – their team went beyond the scope of their work to assist us in our hurried attempted to finish decorating, arranging seating, placing tables, etc. During the event the guests were raving about the food and the courses were perfectly timed by Sarah and Patrick’s attentiveness. The food was absolutely delicious and a treat for all your senses. As the event was winding down they meticulously disassembled, all the while, making sure no guests felt rushed to eat up! They adjusted themselves to organically flow with the timeline of our party. I can’t say enough and would hire Mountain Laurel Catering for any and all future events. I encourage everyone else to do the same! Thank you, Thank you Sarah & Partrick!! More...

We hired Pat and Sarah on the recommendation of my son, Carson, who knows his way around kitchens, chefs, and food, having worked at Troegs in Hershey and currently at the Bull's Head Beer pub in Lititz. We had an 18th century theme for our wedding and reception and Mountan Laurel excelled at providing an 18th century meal of appetizers, entrees, and sides. Their mac & cheese is to die for (and I'm an expert in that category!). You cannot go wrong with this caterer. More...

We were just married this past weekend at a farm in Gettysburg, PA, and we were lucky enough to have Sara and Patrick cater the event. I have to say we were impressed with their professionalism, their attentiveness, their flexibility, and their kindness, every step of the way. They are a newer business, and in the very beginning my husband and I were initially inclined to go with one of the larger catering companies in the area, mostly bc we erroneously thought that experience equated to service quality. In relaying this to Sarah, she went out of her way to seek input and feedback on how she might have more effectively sold us on their services... and in the end I was so impressed by her sincerity, her earnest attitude and desire to provide exactly what we were looking for, that we ended up deciding to choose mountain laurel for the wedding. I am SOO grateful we made this decision. They worked with us every inch of the way until we were 100% happy with the menu, taking feedback and suggestions graciously and enthusiastically. Sarah went out of her way to help take on responsibilities that weren't hers, and they arranged a tasting a day after they returned from their own vacation just because it was convenient for our schedule... and they still managed to create a delicious representation of the dinner they were planning for the wedding. Perhaps what was most meaningful to me, was that in the middle of planning this wedding, my father was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Initially we were worried we would have to move the wedding date up, and we weren't sure how to arrange this with the vendors. As soon as I told Sarah what was going on, she immediately offered to rearrange their schedule to accommodate us if we needed it, and she was empathic and kind, thoughtful and wonderful throughout. Luckily we didnt have to change a thing, and the wedding was everything we could have dreamed of and more. This whole review doesnt even mention how delicious the food was- my husband and I love to cook and eat, and are fairly discerning in what we enjoy- the food managed to be both sophisticated and simple, it was well seasoned with complex flavors and it was also beautiful- these are not easy feats for a catered meal for >100 people. Both Sarah and Patrick are wonderful people and I cannot say enough good things about them- I would recommend them to anyone and everyone. Thank you for making our weekend everything we wanted it to be and more. More...

I was referred to Mountain Laurel for my rehearsal dinner and wedding reception by Beech Springs Farm. Amazing! So very easy to work with, flexible and didn't miss a detail. For the rehearsal- hands down the best vegetarian lasagne many guests had ever had. For the wedding, we had a brunch that included what everyone agreed was the best bacon they've ever tasted. Seriously amazing. Close contenders for the most popular dishes were also the Mac and Cheese, the Asparagus, the Potatoes...really everything else served! We loved seeing the crew set up outside the barn and smell the amazing smells. Highly recommend Mountain Laurel- professional, thoughtful, quality, communicative, and everything I wanted for my morning wedding. The guests agreed that it was the best wedding food they'd ever had! Thank you both for your hard work and being part of our special day! More...

I am a bit of a foodie and not easily impressed. I wanted something different for our wedding to give it that WOW factor!! Mountain Laurel Catering did just that. The food and staff were amazing!! We did family style and all of our guest loved it!! From the crab fritters to the Chipotle mac n cheese...OMG everything was perfect!! If you want quality food and professionalism at a reasonable price higher Sarah and Chef Patrick, you will not be disappointed. Thank you for exceeding our expectations!! More...

We used Mountain Laurel Catering for my company holiday party this year. The theme was “family style brunch” and Sarah and the Mountain Laurel team went above and beyond in delivering exceptional service from start to finish. Working with them to plan an event of this scale was so incredibly pleasant. I could not have asked for a better contact than Sarah. She was fantastic to work with; she was incredibly understanding, patient and appreciative in addition to going above and beyond to ensure our guests were happy. Chef Pat and his creations are out of this world. I have been asked numerous times where can people go to get something made by Mountain Laurel, especially the Prime Rib. We could not have been more thrilled with the service and quality of this event and we truly look forward to working with Mountain Laurel, Sarah and her team again in the future. More...

I first had Mountain Laurel's food a my son's wedding. From that experience, I knew I would be using them in the future. The selection of appetizers and dishes presented for the meal were all delicious, and beautifully presented. My family swooned over their smoked brisket, so I decided to order one as a treat for a family party that I had today. Honestly, I think they came for the brisket, not to see me.

The meat has the perfect balance of smoke and seasoning. It has a melt-in-your-mouth texture, and the flavor is simply out of this world. This was the first of what is likely to be many briskets that I will order in the future.

I cannot finish the review without saying that their prices are very reasonable and that they are true professionals. I would suggest you consider them for your next event...or just order a brisket for you and your friends to enjoy one evening this summer. I am confident you will be happy you did.

Sarah, Pat, Klaudia and the whole team were amazing! We could not be any happier with the service we received on our wedding day. The team even helped us clean up later in the evening. The prices were exactly what we needed. The food was amazing. Everyone loved the nacho bar! The smoked chicken was tender and the mashed potatoes were flavorful. Thank you so much for making our day that much more special. More...

Thank you and your staff for making our special day less stressful and even more amazing!!!
You also went above and beyond with the beautiful thoughtful wedding gift!! thank you so much for everything!!! �

We chose to go with Mountain Laurel to cater our wedding out of recommendation from our venue, the fact that we liked their concept of local and freshly prepared food and because the tasting was impressive and wonderful, so we booked them despite the fact that we had to rent glassware and linens (which they do not provide), hire bar tenders and a cleanup crew (which were closer within our budget than what Mountain Laurel offered), and also arrange for someone to place our linens on each table without an additional cost. The menu that was put together for us was exactly what we wanted and we loved the unique aspects of many of the menu items. Mountain Laurel was professional, flexible and kept contact with us, answering all of our emails (every email literally went into my spam folder, so once I noticed that, I made sure to check that folder). Our wedding dinner was served family style and they were spot on with delivering the meals to those with dietary restrictions. At our reception and afterwards, we heard from guests that the food was good and the best food they have had at a wedding. We also enjoyed the food, but the brisket we had was pretty fatty and really not as good or flavorful as it was at the tasting (and what I have had in the past). The only odd thing was that when we were in the process of booking a caterer, Sarah and Chef Pat initially told us they would be on vacation on our wedding date but that they had confidence their staff would be able to handle it. Later, they had told us via email and also verbally at our tasting, that they rescheduled their vacation and they would indeed be present for our wedding (also assuming because a wedding show was the day after our wedding so they could participate). To be honest, the fact that Chef Pat and Sarah would be present to cater at our reception was one of the many aspects that helped make our decision to book them. On the day of our wedding, Sarah and Chef Pat were not there, which I understand, things come up, things happen, but we were under the impression that they would be there and we were never notified nor given a quick heads-up that they wouldn’t be. Just thought that was a little strange. They did give us a card (along with glasses and a bottle of prosecco - thank you, by the way!) that we read when we came home from our honeymoon saying they were sorry they couldn’t be at our wedding. Regardless, we had a lovely, beautiful day and we thank Mountain Laurel for being a part of it. More...

Mountain Laurel helped us create the perfect menu based on our favorite foods.
Appetizers:
• Beautiful meat and cheese board w/ cured meats, cheeses, olives, prosciutto stuffed peppers, etc.
• Bacon wrapped scallops with a cherry glaze
• Caprese skewers
• Fresh fruit skewers with a chocolate dipping sauce
Main courses:
• Mahi Mahi topped with crab and a margarita sauce
• Prime rib with a horseradish cream sauce
Sides
• Candied Fingerling potatoes
• Asparagus


Everything was absolutely amazing and exceeded our expectations. The prime rib was cooked perfectly and a very generous portion. Hands down the best piece of beef I have ever eaten, and I eat a lot of red meat. The Mahi Mahi was also cooked to perfection. The meat and cheese spread was one of the best I have ever seen. I think the food was the highlight of the entire day. We have received so many compliments from our guest saying, not only is it the best wedding food, but best food they have ever eaten. Personally I wish they had a restaurant, so I could enjoy their food on a regular basis.
Additionally, the serving and bartending staff was amazing, friendly, and took care of everything in a prompt professional manner. They ever ran and got more soda when the bar was running low.
The bakery that delivered the cake delivered it super early for an outdoor wedding. Pat was on top of it. They monitored the cake and when the decision was made to take off the top two layers they did that with perfection. They were just as upset as we were. They even called the bakery because they were worried that the amount of cake that was left would not feed our guest. Somehow they managed to make it feed all the guests. Then when the wedding was over they went above and beyond and arranged for the bakery to make as an anniversary tier for us because ours was not salvageable.
Considering everything we got the price was very reasonable as well. Should I ever need anything catered again Mountain Laurel would absolutely be my first choice.

These guys are absolutely incredible. We couldn't have asked for more from our wedding caterers - the food was exceptional, they catered to a couple of late changes and a million dietary requirements and pulled off an exceptional 3 course meal that had EVERYONE complimenting our food. Jessica and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mountain Laurel Catering to everyone. Your service and communication were exceptional - especially in dealing with a clueless, at times stressed out, cross-country wedding-planning couple. You guys are catering champions and wonderful people to boot. 5 stars every day of the week. Pat and Sarah, we love you! More...

I've worked with Mountain Laurel Catering before because I work in the wedding industry, and I've been so impressed with their menus and their service that I hired them for a private party I hosted. They did not let me down! Sarah & Pat and their team are so easy-going and just the nicest people you'll ever work with. Everyone at the party absolutely raved about the food; I was so happy to offer some unique food options for the party and still have guests love everything that was served. The next time I'm hosting a party, I can guarantee I will be contacting Mountain Laurel. Thank you so much, Sarah & Pat! More...

Truly one of our favorite parts of our wedding. We had a negative experience with another local caterer and reached out to Pat and Sarah truly last minute. Not only were they able to make our somewhat unique vision come to life (pierogis at cocktail hour! family style serving style! ) but they were warm and helpful as well, providing us with a wonderful tasting before the wedding and with food that the guests raved about. We are delighted with the food and service and would recommend them to anyone! Thank you so much-Annie and Dennis More...

We are SO happy we went with Mountain Laurel for our wedding! Sarah and Pat were awesome to work with, first of all. They were responsive, down to earth, very kind, and made the whole process run smoothly and efficiently. Their prices were also MUCH lower than we had seen elsewhere. They came up with the perfect menu based on the vibe we wanted, our dietary restrictions, and the wide variety of tastes our family and friends have. Their food was unique, creative, and not just the same old food you see at every wedding. We got so many compliments on the food at our wedding and it's all thanks to Pat and Sarah! If you're looking for high quality food, a personalized menu, and a vendor that's easy and fun to work with, we highly suggest you go with Mountain Laurel Catering. More...

Sarah and Pat are such wonderful people. We felt incredibly seen and heard by them, and they were so easy to communicate with.

My husband and I like to try new foods, but my family is very traditional in their food tastes. Sarah and Pat offered us so many options that played to both our sense of adventure and my family's preferences for traditional fare! After we had picked the perfect menu, they went out of their way to be sure that everything was perfect for our wedding day! I did not worry about whether cocktail hour would be ready as soon as our ceremony ended nor did I worry that the tables would be set just as I had imagined them. They even met our baker to ensure the cake delivery went off without a hitch! Honestly, the sweetest thing they did though was to create a plate of hors d'oeuvres especially for me and my husband when we came into the reception - it was such a welcome gesture since we had spent the first few hours of our wedding bouncing around from saying vows to taking pictures to welcoming guests! They know their stuff! I would recommend them for any occasion! More...

Being co-owner of A-1 Party Rent-All I've had multiple chances to work with Sarah and I have to say, she is a real sweetheart. I haven't personally used this company but, I would highly recommend them, from all the positive feedback I get back, from the customers I recommend Mountain Laurel Catering Events to. What I hear from past customers, is that the staff are super nice, which I know first hand, very accommodating, punctual and best of all, affordable. So check them out, I'm sure you won't be disappointed!!!!! More...

Sarah & Pat are incredible! They catered our 175 person wedding with delicious food & professional catering staff. Our guests were raving about the smoked salmon & beef brisket days later. My husband and I have been to over 30 weddings and we've never heard so many compliments about wedding food!! It was important to us to use local and sustainable ingredients, and they were able to do so at a cost comparable to another catering company nearby. Sarah provided day-of wedding coordination (for a small extra fee) and helped to ensure we thought through every detail to prepare for our special day. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect & much of it was thanks to Mountain Laurel! Thank you!! More...

I work in the wedding industry, and when it came time for me to pick a caterer for a surprise birthday party I was hosting, I knew it had to be Mountain Laurel. Sarah + Pat and their team are the nicest people you could ever work with, and their food is phenomenal. Even the pickiest eaters at the party raved about the food. Sarah + Pat always go above and beyond for their clients, and I am so happy I had the chance to support such a great local business. If you are looking for fantastic food, amazing service, and for a wonderful experience, contact Mountain Laurel Catering! They are worth every penny! More...

Mountain Laurel Catering was apart of our “dream team” of vendors for our July 2017 wedding. I say that because they were truly AMAZING! Sarah and Chef Pat put their heart and soul into their business and clients. Sarah was so wonderful to work with, was responsive, extremely supportive and helpful throughout the planning process. They helped us create a delicious menu for our cocktail hour and reception that was “fresh”, seasonal and budget friendly! My husband and I attended 30 weddings together prior to our own and the food was never typically a topic of conversation (just another wedding meal). Our guests RAVED about our food. Chef Pat made the most delicious dinner for our reception; we actually had guests looking for the kitchen in order to compliment him on a job well done! I can honestly say, the salmon he prepared for us was better than some I’ve had right off of the shore. On top of the food, they had a wonderful crew of staff members and bartenders who made it their priority to take care of our guests the entire evening (and all were SO friendly)! Chef Pat is amazing at what he does and prepared for our wedding one of the best meals I’ve ever had! Sarah is one of the hardest working women I’ve ever met and went above and beyond the call of duty to make our day as special as it was. Mountain Laurel Catering is a must for your wedding day and I promise you will not regret it! THANK YOU SARAH AND PAT! More...

For our wedding, we were looking for elevated delicious comfort food and Mountain Laurel definitely delivered that! We loved our tasting and the creative and delicious menu options that Sarah and Pat came up with. They were very friendly, easy to talk to, and flexible with any changes. Throughout the process, Sarah was super attentive to responding to emails and questions. She also got everything ordered for us with the event rentals we needed like table linens, cloth napkins, silverware, plates, etc. There was a slight hiccup the day of with drink items the bartenders hired through Mountain Laurel were supposed to make and bring for our signature drinks, but overall it seemed that our guests enjoyed the bar. And we liked that we were able to buy and provide the beer, wine, & spirits that would be used. Our guests still rave about how delicious the food was even over a year later! From the meats & cheeses, to the appetizers like the strawberry gazpacho and smoked shrimp skewer with mango butter & toasted coconut, to the amazing lavender honey herb butter with hand-made herb focaccia they are known for, to the meal with entrees like the bulgogi beef flank steak and herb roasted chicken with red pepper pesto, and especially the chipotle mac & cheese, it was truly delicious and the perfect compliment to our wedding day! We loved that our meal was brought over to us as soon as we sat down at our sweetheart table. Also Sarah and Pat gave a special gift of champagne flutes & champagne which was so thoughtful. Sarah and Chef Pat create and execute awesome menus and we would definitely recommend Mountain Laurel! More...

I cannot even begin to express my gratitude toward Mtn. Laurel and the owners Pat and Sarah. This is seriously your one stop shop for everything you need. I had a very small wedding, but have a large family - we basically eloped and then had a huge family celebration a few months after. The food was nothing short of amazing! I think that more than half of the guests spent a good portion of their day talking to Pat about his smoker and the impressiveness of the whole operation. They showed up early and left late. If you are looking for a bartender for your event they even provided one for us. Ask for Randy! He's the bees knees. At later gatherings my friends commented on how good and personable he was. I wish there was a section to add pictures because the food not only was delicious but the presentation of the whole thing was amazing, which is something I was worried about because we had a backyard buffet style of reception. I also loved that they were accommodating to my organic requests too. More...

Chef Pat, Sarah, and staff make the catering process feel like you are working with a longtime friend. Their professionalism paired with a true care for you and your event, make choosing them for your caterer the best decision you will make! The food is fresh, tasty and sensitively chosen to fit the season and your tastes, all with a flair of the unique! It blows away the stereotypes of pre-heated event food to something you would expect at a high class restaurant and served FRESH! Cannot say enough good things about this duo and their team. They go above and beyond the role of caterer to make the process of planning your event fun and stress free. More...

Words cannot express how extremely happy we are with Sarah and Pat at Mountain Laurel Catering and Events. From the first meeting where we got to do a private tasting, to the last moment of enjoying our meal with family and friends, Sarah really thought of everything. We were able to do a sample menu that was fresh, local products that was perfect for us a couple with dietary demands and picky pallets. Sarah helped with ordering alcohol and came up with a tasty cocktail specialized to us which was a perfect pairing for our expertly cooked meal. She even offered to arrange linens/rentals for us. Their food, presentation and customer service are supreme and very affordable. I would highly recommend them to any couple on a budget and still looking for that personalized, sophisticated service.

These guys are absolutely incredible. We couldn't have asked for more from our wedding caterers - the food was exceptional, they catered to a couple of late changes and a million dietary requirements and pulled off an exceptional 3 course meal that had EVERYONE complimenting our food. Jessica and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mountain Laurel Catering to everyone. Your service and communication were exceptional - especially in dealing with a clueless, at times stressed out, cross-country wedding-planning couple. You guys are catering champions and wonderful people to boot. 5 stars every day of the week. Pat and Sarah, we love you! More...

I used Mountain Laurel for a small brunch "bites" event I hosted.  When I contacted them I told them my concept and budget and they worked with me to put together a menu that worked for my event and fit right in with my budget.  During the time before my event the correspondence was quick and I had no worries that things would go smoothly.  The day of the event they showed up right one time and set everything up for me.  They provided plates, napkins, and serving utensils.  I didn't need to add anything!  There was plenty of food for everyone and even some leftover that we enjoyed for the rest of the day!   I got a a lot of positive feedback on the food and everything I tasted was fabulous!  I will definitely use them again for upcoming events and I can't wait to see what other things they can do with a different theme!

The people at Mountain Laurel catering are the type of people that you feel like you are friends with after the event is over. From the very first conversations with them to the actual event, they did nothing but go above and beyond to make sure that every question was answered and every detail was perfect. They work with you on the level of understanding that would only come from people who have a true passion for what they do. The food and ideas that they have remind you of dining in a farm fresh upscale restaurant. Their willingness to customize and perfect every detail to your liking Will always leave me speechless. They put their personal touches on everything. Even down to the honey lavender whipped butter for on the breads, and all the made from scratch toppings on our main course, to the custom made signature drinks with such attention to detail. There's nothing cookie cutter or standard about this caterer. On our wedding day our guests couldn't stop raving about not only how amazing the food was, but how friendly, accommodating and downright sweet all the staff was to deal with. We will forever cherish our expierience and be touched with the love and detail that Mountain Laurel catering put into our wedding day!! More...

We were just married this past weekend at a farm in Gettysburg, PA, and we were lucky enough to have Sara and Patrick cater the event. I have to say we were impressed with their professionalism, their attentiveness, their flexibility, and their kindness, every step of the way. They worked with us every inch of the way until we were 100% happy with the menu, taking feedback and suggestions graciously and enthusiastically. Sarah went out of her way to help take on responsibilities that weren't hers, and they arranged a tasting a day after they returned from their own vacation just because it was convenient for our schedule... and they still managed to create a delicious representation of the dinner they were planning for the wedding. Perhaps what was most meaningful to me, was that in the middle of planning this wedding, my father was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Initially we were worried we would have to move the wedding date up, and we weren't sure how to arrange this with the vendors. As soon as I told Sarah what was going on, she immediately offered to rearrange their schedule to accommodate us if we needed it, and she was empathic and kind, thoughtful and wonderful throughout. Luckily we didnt have to change a thing, and the wedding was everything we could have dreamed of and more. This whole review doesnt even mention how delicious the food was- my husband and I love to cook and eat, and are fairly discerning in what we enjoy- they managed to make the food be both sophisticated and simple, it was well seasoned with complex flavors and it was also beautiful- these are not easy feats for a catered meal for >100 people. Both Sarah and Patrick are wonderful people and I cannot say enough good things about them- I would recommend them to anyone and everyone. Thank you for making our weekend everything we wanted it to be and more. More...

If you are looking for great food, great service, and an overall great performance, without the typical outrageous pricing, then you need to go check out Mountain Laurel Catering & Events! My now husband and I used them for our wedding over Labor Day weekend and we could not have asked for anything better. We had our wedding in a barn and did not think we would be able to have our wedding catered due to lack of funds (we honestly were about to go to Sam's Club and buy bulk food and use bunsen burners for our reception) however Mountain Laurel worked with us on pricing and they made it happen!!! The best part about Mountain Laurel - THEY COOK ON-SITE! Our chicken was so fresh and was honestly the best chicken I have ever had! And don't get me started on their lavender butter creme - OMG it was AMAZING! (1/2 of my guests came up to me and asked if I tried that butter - I had already had 4 slices of bread with it - hahaha). I spoke with Sarah during the entire process starting with the price, then the menu, so on and so fourth! I had a smaller wedding and she checked her kitchen to see if she had enough plates and flatware so I did not have to take on that cost, and she did!!! And she didn't charge me extra for them! The staff was beyond professional and all of my guests loved their service and food. The bartender was also awesome and made the night more fun! They definitely go above and beyond for the entire event and they did not just focus on catering! For example, my DJ showed up and his equipment was not working - so when it came time for my first dance, Sarah looked up the song I wanted and plugged her phone into the speakers so we could have our first dance and she completely SAVED THE DAY! My husband and I will forever be so thankful for having Sarah and Mountain Laurel Catering & Events cater our wedding!!!

I could go on and on but I don't want to sound too cheesy because this company needs to be the number 1 catering company in the area!

We couldn't have been happier with Mountain Laurel Catering. They went above and beyond and the food was awesome. Few things while planning a wedding do you feel like you got more than you paid for, and this was one of them.

What more could we ask for? The plates looked and taste amazing. The pulled pork is the best I have ever had and the mac was a great surprise. The owners were very friendly,personable and honored every request. I only wish they did personal catering lol I would call them every night for dinner More...

They truly listen to your vision of your wedding. Our theme was an 18th century event. They did research on what would have been served during such a event and visited the venue (our home) twice to get ideas and even borrowed some of the antiques to augment the theme! This is a top notch catering group! More...

I hired Mountain Laurel Catering for my bridal shower of about 55 guests earlier this month. They used their creativity to design an amazing menu with a ton of variety for the event. In addition to their remarkable cooking skills, their presentation skills are beautiful. The shower took place at my house and I was apprehensive of the set-up initially, but Mountain Laurel exceeded my expectations. They handled everything and it all looked amazing! They printed custom labels and watched the food intently and refilled as necessary without having to be asked. Guests had to be told the appetizers weren’t the full course because that’s how it appeared. Part of the main course was gourmet tacos with a mango salsa. A friend of mine said she will never look at sandwiches the same at showers after having such a lovely meal at mine. Thank you Sarah and Pat for your originality, diligence and delicious food!

We hired Mountain Laurel Catering for a baby shower and were blown away by the elegance they brought to our event with their spectacular menu, presentation, and exceptional service. Sarah made communication an absolute pleasure from our first phone call to our hugs goodbye! It started with the most creative, thoughtful, and mouthwatering menu proposal that went far beyond our expectations considering our budget requirements and the distance they traveled to our event. On the day of we watched in delight as Sarah, Patrick and their staff set up and each menu item was more beautifully presented than the next. The fruit kabobs could have been centerpieces!! In addition to taking care of everything food related – their team went beyond the scope of their work to assist us in our hurried attempted to finish decorating, arranging seating, placing tables, etc. During the event the guests were raving about the food and the courses were perfectly timed by Sarah and Patrick’s attentiveness. The food was absolutely delicious and a treat for all your senses. As the event was winding down they meticulously disassembled, all the while, making sure no guests felt rushed to eat up! They adjusted themselves to organically flow with the timeline of our party. I can’t say enough and would hire Mountain Laurel Catering for any and all future events. I encourage everyone else to do the same! Thank you, Thank you Sarah & Partrick!!

MLC did a fantastic job catering my wedding brunch and reception. They were professional, caring and paid special attention to details. The food was over the top delicious- people still talk about it today. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a caterer. More...
