First let me thank you. On a day during which I felt I was herding cats – my only daughter’s wedding – you and your crew arrived timely, set up the food and drink stations beautifully (and independently at the agreed location). You served great food professionally and with great fun. You needed nor asked for assistance. You estimated the amount we needed perfectly. During the cake “smushing”, you were there cleaning the floor before I was even started. At the end of the evening, you placed left over food ( yeah for us) and cake and cupcakes in travel containers…including even the tea. The bartenders were also professional, fun, and gracious. You all made the evening so easy and took a great load from my shoulders, effortlessly. I can never thank you enough…and strongly recommend Hempen Hill Catering to all for any event!

Whether you need catering service or a great meal, Hempen Hill is the place to go! We used Hempen Hill as our caterer for our wedding and couldn’t be more pleased. The coordinator, Josh, was so helpful and accommodating! We were first blown away with our tasting and consultation. We walked in and had our own private table in a quiet area with drinks ready for us! We were a few minutes early and they were ready for us! The food during our tasting was delicious and had great flavor. We were able to have great conversation with Josh and made a connection with the food and service instantly! We knew immediately we were going to pick Hempen Hill. During the wedding planning, Josh would check-in and make sure planning was going well and set up times to do walk throughs and a final consultation before the big day. He was always so organized and timely with the entire process, making us feel confident and worry free! The day of the wedding Hempen Hill showed up on time and went right to work cooking on site in the kitchen. They matched our flowers and theme perfectly to make everything tie together. During the ceremony the staff held doors for the bridal party as they were walking outside. Every staff person smiled and congratulated us throughout the night. During pictures, the bridal party was brought appetizers and drinks so we could also take part in the cocktail hour. Hempen Hill took care of our bar and made cute signs to advertise our offerings. There was never a line and guests were always with a drink! Tables were dismissed in an orderly fashion to enjoy the buffet of warm, fresh, food and were even able to get seconds. All our guests raved about the food and service the entire night and days after! At the end of the night, the staff packed up our leftovers for us to take home and did an incredible job cleaning up! We could not be more pleased with the food quality and service that Hempen Hill provided.
Since the wedding, we have eaten at the restaurant twice and are always so pleased with both the food and service! The servers have great personality and are always pleased to serve the guests. The food has always been fresh and tasty. We are so glad we have found Hempen Hill, a restaurant to call our own! We can’t wait to continue to go to Hempen Hill, see the friendly staff and enjoy a delicious meal!

We have used Hempen Hill Caterers for our employee events and have never been disappointed. The only drawback is trying to decide what to order, because it is all so good. Hempen Hill’s caterers do a fabulous job of providing timely estimates based on our budget and making adjustments that allow us to make the best selections and stay within our budget, even if asked to make multiple adjustments. Only because our events don’t last long, we don’t use the Sterno heaters and the food stays warm for hours. As the coordinator for the event, what I love most is everything is disposable – there is no need to run containers back to the restaurant. The delivery staff is always very friendly and helpful. They pull up in their tie-dyed van, set up everything quickly and are on their way. In the years that I’ve used them, I have never heard one negative comment from our staff. I personally recommend the wings, pulled pork and mac & cheese

The smoked Mac N Cheese and pork barbecue were delicious! Both were a big hit at our party. The pricing is very reasonable also.
All the employees at Hempen Hill were very friendly and professional. Also the food was packaged well, in sturdy containers and boxes, which made it easy to transport home.

Hempen Hill coordinated/catered our wedding on June 25th, 2016 and they far exceeded our expectations! Josh and his staff were so friendly, kind, and fully attentive to any and all of our needs or requests. Josh responded quickly to the many emails I sent him in the months before the wedding, which helped me to stay calm and know that everything was taken care of. Once we arrived, Josh and his team jumped right in to help decorate and organize the space and asked constantly if we needed any other help. Their assistance relieved a huge weight off of my shoulders in the hours before my wedding. They are phenomenal! The food was amazing and we received nothing but amazing reviews from our guests as well. Even my uncle from Mississippi (who loves good barbecue) raved about how good the food was. We hardly had any leftovers to take home with us and many went back for seconds. I only wish I was able to eat more, but my dress and excitement would not allow it! Overall, I cannot even describe how thankful we were to have Josh, his team, and Hempen Hill to make our day perfect.
Heather and Robert – 7/1/16
Our wedding day was catered by Hempen Hill BBQ and we cannot say enough good things! Not only was the food amazing, delicious and not just “wedding food” it was beautifully prepared and well served. Josh the head caterer was absolutely AWESOME!! He went above and beyond to make our day perfect not only with catering but with the venue and beyond. Anytime I needed his advice, service, or help he was right there with an answer! I felt fully supported throughout the wedding day and day before because of Josh!! The bartending service they provided was also very nice and took the worry off of us having to find a bartender. I would recommend Hempen Hill to anyone!! We also had our first wedding venue shut down a month before our wedding and Josh took it upon himself to put a hold on another wedding venue for us without me even telling him about the old venue yet! The venue he put a hold on for us was where we ended up! He was our saving grace!!! If you want an unforgettable catering experience this is the team you want behind you.

The food was a hit at our gathering! I had my order in hand within minutes of arriving to pick up and it was hot and fresh. The value and convenience far exceeded the associated cost. We will cater with Hempen Hill again. This is my third event/catering order with Hempen Hill. My sister-in-law’s baby shower and my wedding shower were held in your on sight catering room.
Stephen Lockhart – 6/16
The crowd went crazy over the food. This was the second time I had picked up meat for our potluck, and I am sure they will beg for it again.
Thank you for making it enjoyable!!
Carla Merrick(Mother of the Bride) – 5/16
Mark and I can’t thank you enough for the AMAZING job you and your staff did at Sam and Ross’ wedding. Your flexibility was crucial to the success of the event since we wanted to maximize the venues potential during continually changing weather, and you delivered. We were very impressed with how well you and your staff adapted to the change of plans and we were able to relax and enjoy the wedding because you and your team had everything under control. From the champagne welcome and ceremony in the barn to the cocktail hour in the solarium and back to the barn for dinner, you and your staff were able to go from Plan A to B to C on a moment’s notice. We were very pleased with the presentation of the food how friendly and attentive the servers and bartenders were. I was glad we added a second bartender.
As for the food, it was a big hit! Not only did we love it, but we received many compliments about the food from guests
Overall, you did a great job and we will be happy to recommend Hempen Hill to others.
Nikole Morningstar – 5/16
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the great food provided by Hempen Hill for my son’s graduation party. The whole process from getting a quote, communication, ordering and pickup was easy and affordable. I had called 3 other places to compare quotes and none of them come even come close to your price point for the amount of food we were ordering. I was skeptical about reheating the food but it turned out great with directions that were provided. The staff at Hempen was very pleasant at pickup and the food was ready on time. Thank you for allowing me to enjoy my son’s party and for taking the task of cooking off my hands to be able to have more time enjoying our company. I would highly recommend the catering services again. The food was great!
Donna Smith – 5/16
We had a family gathering catered by Hempen Hill. They did not offer catering on Sundays but they said I could pick it up on Saturday night and they would provide reheating instructions. We love the food at Hempen Hill so we decided to give this arrangement a try. We were not disappointed!! Reheating was super easy and you could never tell it wasn’t fresh from the restaurant’s kitchen. Everyone in attendance raved about the food. The serving size suggestions were also spot on. We had plenty of food with enough for left overs! We will definitely use this service again!
