    Chef Brett was understaffed, late, and underprepared for our wedding. He was unresponsive to phone calls from my day-of coordinator the day of. His employees were not all dressed professionally. He did not provide all contracted dishes and did not bring enough barware for our 112-person wedding, my mother was given a dirty plastic wine glass from the trash for her beer. The food was hardly edible and I heard a week after my event Chef Brett fell unresponsive. Staff are the cake and ice cream we provided, the chef didn't prep the food and drinks for our cocktail hour and we wasted hundreds of dollars worth of beer--who brings 2 ounce wine glasses for beer and soda? It was a huge disappointment and I believe Mr. Dyer overcommitted himself two weeks out from my event to do another wedding the day before and wasn't professional enough to call in sick and rely on a colleague in his absence. I won't ever have another wedding day, and Wolfmoon nearly ruined it. All the best parts of our reception were things we arranged, not Brett Dyer.

    I wanted to thank Chef Brett for a job well done! Thank you for agreeing to do the job on such short notice. And even though we were rained out, you still made the best of it. The food was excellent! Everyone raved about the collard greens! The ribs were out of this world! Brett was early but sat in the truck until I came out and got him. Thinking back I wished he had just come in and set up as it took awhile and guest had started to arrive. So it was a little chaotic in the beginning. But they all seemed to just fit in with our family and friends, all staff were very nice and helpful. The only complaint that I have is he did not make enough cupcakes. The Birthday Girl never got one! I would definitely use Wolfmoon Catering again! Thank you Chef Brett and your team for a Job WELL DONE!

    We started using Wolfmoon Catering to try and boost business at our car dealership a couple of months ago. We have been blown away by the customers reaction to Chef Brett and his team. They have been a huge success for us and our new customers. We have now made them a permanent monthly fixture at our location. Great job Chef Brett and Wolfmoon Catering!!

    Brett and his wife did a wonderful job at our wedding! They were very professional, warm and helpful. Working with them was a delight. They did their pasta bars for our wedding and it went well. It also rained during dinner and their staff took it in stride! I would highly recommend them. We enjoyed working with them and would do so again.
    Brett D. Jun 2, 2015

    Dear Sara, thank you so much for your review. Our made to order pasta bars are a real hit with weddings this year. The rain was not fun but we are here to please come rain or shine. Thank you again for using Wolfmoon Catering Chef Brett&Lisa

    Brett and Lisa catered my cousin's pre-wedding dinner party and they did a fantastic job! From the time we visited them several months in advance for a tasting event to helping us pick a menu that would be suitable for the occasion and the setting, Brett did an outstanding job. The food was great and the service impeccable. I am looking forward to working with Brett again in the near future.

    Wolfmoon Catering made my wedding day an absolute success. My husband and I had a vision for a very social reception, so we had server-passed food for the entire event, as opposed to a sit-down dinner. Everyone raved about the food--because it was great! Chef Brett's ideas are completely unique, and are foods that you do not experience when you have a sit-down dinner. Everyone was completely full and satisfied. Food was passed from the cocktail hour, through the entire reception. The servers could barely get through the kitchen before they were tackled by guests. Wolfmoon Catering is extremely professional in their appearance and their presentation. They went above and beyond in making sure the event was set up correctly. They arranged our cupcakes on a cupcake tier (the cupcakes were provided by another company, so this wasn't even Wolfmoon's "job"--and they did it anyway). I would absolutely recommend Wolfmoon Catering to anyone for any event. Their prices are great, and I wish Chef Brett would open a restaurant so that I could eat his cooking all the time. Definitely contact this caterer, no matter your budget, because he will work with you and come up with a unique menu. We also rented linens through Wolfmoon, and everything was perfect! Chef Brett truly exceeded my expectations and "wow-ed" everyone with the amazing food! Thank you so much, Bethany

    Dear Bethany, your reception was our complete pleasure to do. We just give our all so your event was the best it could be. We knew the passed app style menu would really fit your event. We are so happy that you and your guest enjoyed the food and service. It was a real challenge to get the food out fast enough your guest were really excited about the food. Thanks for the recommendation we are so glad that we made your day special. Chef Brett&Lisa

    It saddens me to have to write a negative report regarding this company, which I've never had to do before. Wolfmoon Catering provided services for my daughter's wedding and it was terrible. I'm one who can find the good in pretty much anyone and anything, but the services that they provided or the lack of was simply terrible and they refuse to take responsibility for their mistakes. Everything sound so great up until the day of the wedding. They were late; the food was not properly prepared; the cake arrived late and thrown together as though it had fell and they took 3 hours to attempt to pull something together which had nothing between the layers which did not allow the top layer to be saved for their one year anniversary and the colors were incorrect. The service was terrible and Mr. Brett Dyer has forced us to file charges because he is too arrogant to admit that the services they provided were not what we paid for. I would not recommend them to others based on not just their bad service on the wedding day, but their attitudes after specific problems and breach of contract items were brought to their attention. As much as we would want to support our own (African American) businesses there are services such as this that would make one second guess considering supporting their own again. I wish thumbtack would allow for pictures I would post the picture that we will be providing as evidence in court. Disappointed Mother of the Bride

  • Sara B. Jan 16, 2015
    We were beyond pleased with the service Chef Brett provided for us at our wedding. You and your staff went 100x's above and beyond our expectations and we would, hands down, hire you again for any big event. The food was amazing, the presentation was incredible, and the friendliness of the staff was top notch! All of our guests raved about the food...even the northerners who refused to try the cheese grits talked about how much they loved them! I mean, if you can get a Yankee to love grits, it MUST be good!! :) Thank you so, so much, again for everything. You are the only person/company we will be recommending to friends and family for any type of catering needs!! Excellent food + incredible pricing + beautiful presentation + friendliest staff in town = Wolfmoon Catering!!

    Dear Sara, thank you for your review of Wolfmoon. We are so glad thank you enjoyed the service we provided for your wedding reception.

We will definitely love to be there for your next event. Thank you so much Chef Brett&Lisa

  • Angela H. Jan 11, 2015
    When we were planning our wedding we contacted so many caterers and were disappointed so many times until we met Chef Brett. We waited for caterers to get back to us for what seemed like forever only to do a tasting and find that the food was gross. That is until we met Chef Brett. He called me back from my first email within the hour and spoke to me at length about what i was looking for. He set up a private tasting for me and my husband and the food was fantastic. He only exceeded my expectations when it came to the actual wedding. People raved about the food and are still talking about his Native American butternut squash soup. Wolfmoon catering did such an awesome job and We really can't thank you enough. We will gladly use Chef Brett again for all of our Catering needs. THANKS AGAIN Angela
    Brett D. Jan 13, 2015

    Dear Angela, thank so much for your over the top review of our service for your wedding reception. You let us know from the start that this was not going to be easy. We are so glad we made your reception a great one. Once again thank you so much!! Chef Brett&Lisa

  • Jennifer J. Jan 10, 2015
    Chef Brett and his team were fantastic! We knew we wanted to use Wolfmoon catering for our wedding because of the great experience we had had at a friends wedding. During our initial phone meeting, Chef Brett really listened to what we wanted. We wanted to incorporate our "home/comfort foods" to the wedding. With my husband being from Philadelphia and myself from Maryland, Chef Brett created a personalized passed Hors d'oeuvre menu for us - a Philly cheese-steak pretzel bite, and Maryland crab cake sliders. Our guest from Philadelphia and Maryland were very impressed! When going out to dinner, my husband and I always order several different small plates or appetizers so we can try different types of food, so we knew for our reception we did not want to have a plated dinner. We wanted our guest to enjoy different types of food so we decided to use three interactive food stations - tequila shrimp with lobster infused rice, beef tips with mashed potatoes and two types of salads. Everyone raved about how delicious the food tasted and how interactive each station was. We highly recommend using Wolfmoon Catering, they have exceeded our expectations. They really listen to what we wanted and helped make our wedding very personable. Chef Brett was wonderful to work with, he responded quickly to my emails and phone calls and was very professional. Wolfmoon catering will not disappoint!!
    Brett D. Jan 13, 2015

    Dear Jennifer, thank you for your review of us. The Philadelphia cheese steak bites, were something I knew you would love. With your mixture of cultures we really tried to make the best of both worlds. You are such a high energy couple, we hope nothing but the best for you. Thank you so much Chef Brett&Lisa

  • Amy P. Jan 8, 2015
    Wolfmoon Catering helped make the night SUPER special. The bride and groom wanted a free flowing, very relaxed reception. Wolfmoon supported that with their tray served hors d'oeurves, three food stations, open bar, dessert service, and coffee bar. The food was delicious - lots of great comments. Their presentation fit perfectly with the theme. Their bartenders were VERY flexible, making three signature drinks throughout the evening. All in all, the entire Wolfmoon staff, from initial tasting to clean-up, met and exceeded our expectations. The catering went off without a hitch. Thank you Chef Brett and your very kind wife Lisa for the best day of our new life together. Amy and Phil

    Dear Amy and Phil, thank you for your great review we know that sometimes life moves fast and want to thank you so much. We get great joy from serving others.

    I wish I could leave no stars, Wolfman catering company is horrible and they ruined my wedding. The owner Bret is very arrogant. They were late to my wedding for set up , the servers & bartenders were not well put together and looked as if they were picked up off the street. My wedding cake was 3 hrs late and completely wrong (asked for an ivory Icing, purple and green cake with silver accents but was given a cake with white icing with Oreo crumbles and red roses pierced through out & I don't eat chocolate). The food was cold, the wedding party was served next to last, the presentation of food was horrible, the bartenders I paid for told my guest to pour their own drinks. Chicken was still red not cooked all the way and shrimp was over cooked and mushy. If you want your wedding or event ruined with bad food, tardiness and incompetence choose them, if not RUN FAST AWAY FROM WOLFMAN CATERING. With that being said I'll see you in court because the $350 you provided doesn't compensate for your incompetence and bad service on my wedding day. I have pictures of what I asked for vs what I received if anyone needs pictures for proof.

    Chef Brett and his wife Lisa were perfect for our Thanksgiving dinner. This year I hosted my family Thanksgiving dinner at the neighborhood clubhouse. Chef Brett and his wife prepared and awesome Thanksgiving meal with all the fixings. From appetizer to main meal to dessert, everything was delicious. They showed up on time, they were extremely organized, and everything went off without a hitch. The best part.....they took care of everything and I got to enjoy my family. Both Chef Brett and his wife are wonderful people to have at your party. Very reasonable and excellent at what they do.

    If any of this territory was new to Chef Brett and his team, it sure didn't seem like it. From the time of our tasting back in September to the day of our event mid November, it was exactly what he had promised. He was so helpful, communicative and wonderful. Him and his wife are two amazing people and I can even say a power house of a team. His staff for the day were courteous and helpful and exceeded our expectations. The room was set up beautifully and everything was ready on time. Our venue was challenging because there was no kitchen but he came prepared and fired everything out of his "make do" kitchen on time and to perfection. My mother and my husband just LOVED the Chicken Foster as well as the prime rib. The bartenders handled everything well and I know we have a demanding group of friends and family. Chef Brett and Lisa went out of there way to make us feel special at our wedding reception and I could not have asked for a better day. They have a can do attitude, extremely positive, talented at what they do (FOOD WAS DELICIOUS) and the presentation of everything was wonderful.

    Dear Brena and Charles, your reception has been the highlight of our year. And we thank you for letting us be a small part of your new life together.

Warmest regards, Chef Brett&Lisa

    We used Chef Brett's Wolfmoon Catering for our wedding reception for 150 guest. First we thought that not having any refrigeration or power on site would make our reception very difficult to do. But Wolfmoon had a rolling kitchen on wheels.We had our wedding and reception on a very beautiful farm overlooking a brook. Wolfmoon made the buffet just like one of the best hotels or restaurants. Even when we had a snafu with the timing of the first course Chef Brett worked with us to give great service. Thank you so much Chef Brett and your whole staff for making our day just a dream come true. Love, Connie

    I hired Chef Brett for my intimate Baby Shower. He was very reasonable with the prices and was able to get everything that I requested. The guest LOVED the food and continued to rave about it the following day. I personally enjoyed the Chicken Marsala, but the other guest loved the Horseradish Mashed Potatoes! Very professional team. I would hire him again for my next event.

    I arranged for Chief Brett to conduct a cooking lesson for four people as a birthday gift. We all had a blast! Chief Brett was prepared for us, even after a mix-up over the timing for the lesson. He was patient and entertaining. Even the experienced gourmet cooks in the group learned something new! The food he had us prepare was fantastic. I would highly recommend this experience for someone looking for a unique and memorable birthday gift.

    We hired Wolfmoon for our wedding rehearsal dinner. They made gluten free lasagna, bread, salad and dessert. Everything was AMAZING! Chef Brett was very friendly and professional. We had him make extra lasagna for us, so that we could freeze it and keep it for ourselves for months to come! I will certainly call Chef Brett any time I need catering!
