Testimonials

Selecting Finley's as our wedding caterer was easily one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. We were married in the summer of 2020, and Finley's did an incredible job of catering. They had a number of precautions in place to ensure our buffet lines were safe for our guests. Their team was extremely professional and provided exceptional customer service. They arrived exactly when they were supposed to, and their setup looked great. The food was AMAZING!! We received so many comments raving about the food. Our guests were very happy with the taste and generous portion sizes. We did pulled pork, brisket, mac-n-cheese, cornbread, baked beans, chicken strips, and a salad. They also brought all of their different BBQ sauces. The catering manager even went out of his way to stop by and check in with us to ensure we had a great experience. I would highly recommend Finley's to anyone looking for catering for an event!

Finley's made our day easy. Everyone loved the food, the staff made sure to check in and see how everything was going. Leading up to the day they were in contact with every detail. I can't recommend them enough!

My wife and I chose Finley's Grill & Smokehouse to cater our wedding and could not be happier with the quality of food and service they provided! Nearly every guest that attended our wedding approached us and said they never had better BBQ! Everything from the brisket to the cornbread was absolutely amazing! If we ever choose to have a catered event again, we will not hesitate to call on Finley's!

We asked Finley's to cater our wedding reception and they did an outstanding job!!! They had us meet with them more than once to go over everything for our reception to make sure everything was just as we wanted it, and they were very good about keeping in correspondence with us leading up to the big day. On our wedding day, their food was wonderful and their presentation so professional. Their spread was just what we wanted for our rustic/farm themed wedding, and they really worked with our budget! And, they let you take any extra food home!

One thing they did for our wedding that really just blew me away was this...My husband really wanted to have cheesy potatoes at our reception, but from what I can remember, they didn't have cheesy potatoes on their menu. So we sent them a family recipe of cheesy potatoes, they made a batch and did some experimentation with it to make it more do-able to make and serve for a large crowd. They let us taste-test it. It was great! So they made that family recipe of cheesy potatoes and served it at our wedding!!!!! If that's not going way above and beyond, I don't know what is!

Thank you so much for being part of our wedding reception, Finley's! We just couldn't be happier with the food and the service that we received! And we didn't even have to spend an arm and a leg. Thank you!

Finley's catered my wedding and the food was delicious! Everyone raved about the brisket and several of our friends and family have already inquired about who catered and the price (which was well worth it) Super sweet and kind staff. Ben from the west Lansing location was great, my husband and I highly recommend.

Had the pleasure of booking Finley's for my wedding catering for 250 people. I dealt with Ben specifically for everything and I could not have asked for any better! the food was absolutely amazing and we received so many compliments and are still receiving them! Ben was a pleasure to work with and is an outstanding person. I was extremely impressed with their entire catering service. Highly recommend!! I also forgot to add that they took care of my bartending as well. The two ladies behind the bar were absolutely amazing! They made perfect drinks and even remembered a lot of people's drink orders when they approached the bar. They were so nice and welcoming and very fast as well!

Some of my absolute favorite BBQ food! They catered my sister's wedding 2 years ago and recently catered my cousin's rehearsal dinner. The meat is moist, well cooked & flavorful, and the veggies, sauces and cornbread are incredible. HIGHLY recommend. (For dinning in OR for catering).

Finley's was so great to work with when they catered my wedding. They really went above and beyond for us. We wanted to have cheesey potatoes, so they took a family recipe of ours, tweaked it for a large crowd, and served it at our wedding! Talk about accommodation! The food was great, and their prices are really great too! Thank you Brian and the crew at Finley's!

I wanted to let you know that the catering on 06/08 in Jackson WAS A HUGE SUCCESS! The food was fantastic and plentiful. Karinn did a fabulous job setting up and prepping the food. Kuddo's to him!!!! Please pass on how grateful we were. Everyone raved on the mac and cheese and pulled pork. I will definitely use you again and tell others of the great job you guys did.

I just wanted to, once again, thank you for such a fabulous job on Saturday. The guests absolutely raved about the food. Hands down, best wedding feast ever!! Your staff were the consummate professionals and so kind!

Finley's recently catered my wedding of 180 people. The food was amazing, warm and service was great. We scouted a few places out in the beginning but nothing beat the food and prices of Finley's. Ben was great to work with and provided everything we needed and more. So impressed and will use them again for our catering needs! Thank you

I had an outstanding experience working with Ben for our wedding reception's food and drink service. We had constant, steady communication throughout the entire experience. Ben was up front with any changes that may have arose and was extremely attentive to my concerns, needs and changing menu. I had a response within 24 hours every time I emailed him and the staff was extremely friendly. We hired Finley's as soon as we met with the staff because we could tell that we were going to be taken care of. The people who tended bar were so friendly and happy which added to the excitement of the night. I would hire Ben and his team for any part you are hosting.

Finley's catered to my wedding this passed weekend with me asking them short notice. I was beyond AMAZED how quick to respond the manager, how truly accommodating he was, how easy to talk to and personable he was and he represented Finley super well! Everyone was talking how good the meals were and how much of a good job the servers were. I was blessed to work with Ben for my wedding and so pleased with Finley's. My husband and I along with our families. Thank you Ben!

Finley's catered our wedding reception back in September. When my husband and I began wedding planning the only thing we knew we HAD to have for food was pulled pork. It didn't take me long to find Finley's and I am so thankful that we did. We worked with Ben who was so accommodating to all our ideas. We utilized their bar tending service as well which was a huge help to lump those services together. Ben even made a separate meal for a guest with food allergies. Our guests raved about the food so much; many had seconds & most weren't even hungry for dessert! Haha we had so much dessert leftover. I had many people ask me afterwards for Finley's contact information for their own future weddings. So thankful we found Ben and Finley's because it made that aspect of our wedding planning easy and stress free. Thank you :)

I am such a slacker. I was married this past July(2017) and had Finley's cater the food. Ben is amazing to work with. The prices are great and the food was amazing. The whole process was simple. We had them provide everything, set up, serve, and clean up. The only two issues that I had was I fell in love with Finley's as my caterer before I had a venue picked out(most places only want who they choose/prefer), and I over ordered so we had way too much food to eat.

Finley's catered for our wedding in July 2017. They did an absolutely amazing job! We didn't have to worry about a thing! The food tasted amazing and they even let us keep the leftovers to eat the next day :) I would definitely recommend them for other weddings and events! We were extremely pleased with their services.

We went with Finley's because they were local, their food was spectacular and we loved the choices. I have been to weddings where they paid through the nose for their catering and the food was boring and bland. Not so with Finley's. Their food was all freshly made, smoked and you could smell the rich genuine smoked bbq flavor from a long ways away! I wanted people to drool while they were waiting to eat and the best way to do that was to have freshly made and smoked food. Finley's delivered in spades and all our guests complimented us on their service and excellence. Overall they were highly professional, very, very courteous and on point and went above and beyond to provide a wonderful experience on our special day. Would I recommend them to anyone else? Oh yes! In a heartbeat!

They catered our wedding in Charlotte, MI and did an amazing job. Arrived early, set everything up, cleaned everything up and packaged left overs. On top of all of that, the food was amazing.

Can't say enough great things about Finley's. They catered our wedding last night and it was phenomenal. The manager Ben was very accommodating even going so far as to make sure he had a vegan entrée prepared for just ONE of our guests! Simply amazing. Highly professional. Would highly recommend!!!!
