What an experience.....it makes me want to do it all over again. Time to bite the bullet ...tie the knot....and all the planning still to be done. Was recommended Jimmy Duffy Catering by an old Aunt of mine, she appeared to know the story of the business and could tell me that it was steeped in hard work and intergenerational service. When she had finished we decided to contact. We have never been sorry. It was like stepping into a Fairy Tale where Mr. Pol Duffy and his wife Bernadette make a formidable couple who have a consumate knowledge of what it takes to plan a memorable wedding. From the mundane to the Cake it was a sublime experience where we moved from flawless tastings to planing our menu ..to arranging our color scheme and table sitting. We had a Riverdance theme...which was so much fun and we found that our host was able to give us a cupla focail as Gaeilge. Bernadette oversaw our food choices and turned them all green as only a woman with Irish blood can do...forthy shades made everything seem like home. We all want to say a big THANK YOU to all the team at Duffy's and we hope to continue the relationship for generations to come. What a find.

It was a pleasure working with Bernadette and the staff at Jimmy Duffy Catering. From the tasting, to crafting the menu, to email correspondence leading up to the big day, Bern was responsive, and put me at ease since I live about two hours away from our wedding venue. She was extremely friendly and flexible, adjusting our contract to accommodate last minute signature drink options, timeline changes, and revised guest counts. On the big day, the set up of the reception was seamless. It was exactly what I wanted the tables to look like! Throughout the night, the staff were friendly, attentive, and efficient. I couldn't have asked for a better caterer!

We originally chose Jimmy Duffy because it was the only option available from our venue. We originally worked with Kaitlyn, who was extremely difficult to get in touch with, regardless of whether I emailed her or called her cell phone. I had to wait a week - sometimes more - just to get a response on small inquiries. I had to pester her for several weeks to get a copy of the contract signed by her and I had to email her several times to have to get the food items on our menu correct. We went to a tasting that Jimmy Duffy hosted and the food was AMAZING. Kaitlyn did work with us to make the vegetarian meal into a side, which was great. A couple weeks before the wedding, our sales person was switched to Paul, who was much better. He always responded within 24 hours. He was helpful in providing last minute information and ensuring our tables were correct. The day of the wedding, the lead Jimmy Duffy person was amazing! She made sure that my husband and I had all the food we needed and wanted, as well as helping by telling us how to do a cake cutting. My guests have raved about the quality of the food and for good reason.

Jimmy Duffy was recommended by our venue, Farm at Eagles Ridge, and we worked with Bernadette who was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was fairly responsive, food was absolutely delicious, and after our meetings my Husband and I always felt like our wedding was starting to come along. The tasting event was great and they sat us with other couples getting married at our venue which was great so we could get their input about other vendors. During the day of the wedding Duffys' specifically assigned someone to bring us drinks and whatever we wanted, which was great and a nice touch. We had a small issue with fish running out, but after consideration we came to understand the circumstances and Duffys immediately offered to reimburse those meals. Overall, Duffys had great food and good service. Would definitely recommend!

I was not looking for a wedding reception caterer and that may have been the start of a downhill experience. I am hosting a baby shower and I wanted "fine" heavy hors d'oeuvres ". No one got back to my inital email notifcation so I had to call. Had a discussion with a gentleman about my plan and said he would get back to me. Again another 3 days and no word nor email. I call again " am I doing something wrong" I ask. The lady spoke to me and basically told me that they really don't do these kind of selection and that there would be a need for 2 servers , and the menu supports butler serve appetizers. I sense they only want full course events. There was zero sense of assistance and zero initiative to work with me. So if you are doing a full course event, I am sure they will accommodate your wishes. For a decadent baby shower, not happening. Btw, your survey for the blog only suports weddings. This was for a shower

I would highly not recommend working for this company. It's a joke. Not only did they not have my boyfriend or I fill out W-2 forms, but they didn't pay either one of us for almost two months and were highly unprofessional. The lack of communication was very prominent, and they could not get our hours right for anything. The person in charge did not track hours and we had to make multiple attempts to get paid. They sent us on a three hour mission one way to pick up a check that they already mailed, so it was a waste of six hours, and gas money. How they are in business still is beyond me.

The food was great. And that's about it. The first contact we worked with quit. The second contact we worked with we met once, and never showed up for the wedding. The wait staff were teenagers who were poorly dressed, and the bar staff who were supposedly veterans with the company acted as though they had never worked at the venue before. Wedding items were haphazardly thrown into our vehicles for load out after our wedding, and many things were broken including our wedding guestbook sign and cake topper. Some items went missing altogether and whoever I spoke to in the office did not seem to care. I never got a final invoice for the balance that we owed the week of the wedding, and two months after the wedding when I was sent the invoice it was incorrect. Once it was corrected we sent the check out to the company, only to receive multiple e-mails that stated they gave us the wrong address and then that they were sending the check back because the company name had changed. We are still waiting to hear back from the company on final payment arrangements, although at this point five months after the actual wedding I don't know why we should owe them anything.

Five stars are not nearly sufficient enough to express how very thrilled we were with Jimmy Duffy's! They catered our daughter's wedding this past October at PAFA (Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts) and, from the very start, Pol Duffy and his team could not have been more professional, kind, helpful and exceedingly attentive throughout the process. From the extraordinary tasting to handling every request beyond our expectations, they gave us their all for the most beautiful (and absolutely delicious!) catered event we have ever experienced! We will never forget Pol's commitment to making our wedding as perfect as it could possibly be. I would not hesitate to share our experience with others.

We worked with Kaitlyn at Duffy’s as part of our wedding at Excelsior in October, and we were very happy with the food and service. Kaitlyn was great – she was accommodating and always available via phone, and worked very well with all of our other vendors. The presentation of the food and drinks were beautiful, and everyone really enjoyed their meals. We would recommend Duffy’s to other couples for their wedding!

I first met Bernadette during the open house night at Cairnwood. She was exceptionally professional and informative at a time when I still had no idea what I was doing. She worked with me on an initial menu, seating layout, general timeline; it was the right amount of information to help me structure my reception without overwhelming me. When we did not like the entrees offered during the tasting night, Bernadette went out of her way to schedule a follow-up tasting at the catering office to try additional entrees. At NO point in the decision-making process did she come off as overly persuasive or pushy. Her professionalism and clear evidence of experience with handling weddings, along with the high quality entrees made Jimmy Duffy's the obvious choice as our caterer. During the actual wedding, Bernadette and her staff were very gracious and attentive. They even made sure to provide a bottle of champagne and a generous platter of hors d'oeuvres in the bridal suite for my husband and me when we arrived at the reception venue after the ceremony. Throughout the night, there was a server who "shadowed" our parents as well to make sure that they were well taken care of. Our guests raved about Jimmy Duffy's from the cocktail hour to the dinner courses to the dessert bar. In addition to the food, Bernadette handled the evening's flow of events seamlessly. Everything was packed and ready to go home with my parents by the end of the night by Bernadette and her staff. I've enjoyed working with her every step of the way in the wedding planning process. Choosing Jimmy Duffy's as our caterer for the wedding was one of the best wedding-related decisions that I made.

I cannot say enough about Duffy catering!!!! It was so easy communicating with Bernadette and she really customized our menu with the vision we had for the big day! More importantly, on the big day, her and staff made us feel like royalty! Everyone raved at how delicious the food was and the bridal party raved about the staff's attentiveness. There was nothing too much for Bernadette and staff the day of. I felt so at ease knowing I had her running the show. The day went smoothly and flawlessly because of Duffy catering. I would recommend her to any bride and groom. They know what they are doing, are professional and the food is out of this world. I can't thank Duffy catering enough for making my day perfect and memorable!
