It is hard to put into words how great our experience was with Blue Ridge Cafe & Catering! We were initially drawn to their hometown menu and feels but were blown away by the amount of effort and support they put into our wedding day. We had met with other caterers but never walked away feeling comfortable. After our first meeting with Sue, the catering director, we knew we had found a gem! Sue was so organized and worked with every idea we had to make our wedding day exactly what we wanted. From initial tastings to finalized menus we loved every single thing we tried! The bourbon glazed pork and mac' n cheese were such a huge hit! The food was fantastic but really the best part about Blue Ridge Cafe & Catering is the staff. Chef Shawn cooked on site and the staff took care of set up, clean up, food service, rentals, bartending... anything and everything!! Most importantly, we used Sue Dickau as our day of coordinator and she is a DREAM to work with!! Wedding planning can be stressful but we had so much contact with Sue throughout the planning process that by the day of our wedding it felt like she was a family member. Even when met with unexpected delays and rain, Sue had a solution. She was right on top of everything and effortlessly kept her cool, which eased so much anxiety for us. Truly our wedding day would not have been the same without Sue and the Blue Ridge Cafe staff. By far, the best decision we made!!!

The food and service at Blue Ridge Cafe and Catering Co. is awesome! There is something on the menu for everyone. Since we went with an outside rustic wedding, we chose more traditional dishes. The food was delicious, served on time and heated to perfection, the staff was professional, friendly and so eager to please. BRC&C rates a 10 from beginning to end.
A special thanks to Sue Dickau for arranging such a wonderful experience for my daughter's special day.

Blue Ridge Cafe is so delicious and all of our guests were thrilled about the food. We heard such great things about the reception food and we could not have asked for a better caterer. They are wonderful to work with and they are so professional and perfect at what they do. Wonderful!!!

Absolutely phenomenal experience. Sue was fantastic to correspond with and made sure we got exactly what we wanted! The food was excellent, we ordered breakfast for dinner and they provided the chaffing dishes and set up for us so that we didn't have anything to worry about and allowed us to return the dishes the next day! Our parents also utilized their services for the rehearsal dinner and had a wonderful experience as well. They were in our budget and provided an unforgettable contribution to our perfect weekend!

Sue and Shawn were great through out the entire wedding process. They were very receptive to our (many) emails about clarification, numbers, choices or changes. The food was good and there was a good amount of it for each person. The wait staff they hired were very polite and attentive. They are very reasonably priced!

I was so happy with Blue Ridge Cafe and Catering!! I live in DC and was getting married near Staunton, VA and Sue worked with me even though I was remote and the wedding location was over an hour from their home base. We were able to drive out and do a tasting, which I highly recommend, and move forward with our item choices after we had a chance to taste everything we were interested in. I was interested in heavy apps for our cocktail hour and she helped me pick out a variety of them and the correct number for my size wedding. She was incredibly flexible with me as I changed the count of items numerous times, including in the month before the wedding. Her crew at the wedding was very professional and made sure we were able to flow from cocktail hour into dinner smoothly (even though we had to push everything into the same space because of hurricane weather outside). Sue also worked with me to create a Taco bar, which I loved. Everything from contacting Blue Ridge, to their flexibility was amazing and if you need a stress free caterer, I highly recommend them.
