Greg Yost – Jan. 2019 Party Room
When planning a special dinner for friends and family in celebration of my wife’s 40th birthday, I wanted to find a casual place with a private room and fun atmosphere. Hempen Hill BBQ was the perfect fit! From a helpful catering staff that walked me through every step of the process, including creating a customized menu to fit my party’s budget, to an excellent server who took care of everything we needed that night, it was a great experience.
Of course, the real star of the show was the food, which will come as no surprise to anyone who has already been to the restaurant. The Hempen Hill BBQ menu offers a wide variety of choices for all tastes, so the customized menu approach allowed me to really put together the right selections for our group of 23 guests. Not only did everyone have rave reviews for their meals, including the guest of honor, I saw a lot of people sharing bites so that others could try what they ordered.
I had a tremendous experience working with Josh and the entire Hempen Hill Catering team and I wouldn’t hesitate to plan a future event at the restaurant or recommend my friends and family to do the same.

Hi Amanda and Josh! Everything was FANTASTIC on the 10th!! Having everything completely packed up and ready to go when I got to HH was great. Since everything was included, I didn’t have to make any extra stops for cups or plates, or serving-ware…or even ice, so that convenience will definitely be remembered for future luncheons. The food was delicious and stayed hot for the hour that it took me to get up to the plant and get everything set up. The portion sizes were just right – with a little left over for snacking in the afternoon. The team stuffed themselves silly and was very appreciative of the great meal!! Thanks again for all of your help!!

Food was delicious and we had wonderful compliments from all of our guests. Thanks so much for your assistance and recommendations on amounts. We had plenty of food and more for leftovers. The girls who delivered it were on time and very friendly and helpful. I can see another event in our future with Hempen Hill and I’m sure my family will consider you too. Thanks and Happy New Year!

A huge thanks to you and your catering staff! Everything at our reception was wonderful! We had many compliments on the food, as well as compliments to the attentiveness and politeness of the HHBBQ staff that were there. I’d also like to note that I was very happy with the table set-ups you provided. The lay-out and fresh flowers selected were beautiful and fit in perfect with our style and “theme” for our reception.
Additionally, I was impressed with the entire catering process from the tasting to the final event. You and your staff are very organized and helpful and communicated everything to me very well and in a timely manner throughout the whole process (answering questions, discussing details, payment information, suggestions, etc.) With all the other many things that need to be considered when planning a wedding and reception, it was very nice to feel that the caterer was very capable and that I didn’t need to worry about the food for our guests at all.
Thank you again, Josh! You were great to work with and we were very happy with our HHBBQ experience!
Hannah and Stephen Clark – September 2018
We considered 7 different local BBQ caterers for our wedding and Hempen Hill BBQ was the only one that met all our needs: 1. Great food (we’re still getting rave reviews from guests calling it the best food they’ve ever had at a wedding, months later); 2. Very affordable pricing for our 95 guest list; 3. An experienced catering branch with excellent customer service (Josh clearly knew what he was doing and was always pleasant, thorough, and responsive to email); 4. Awesome vegetarian options. We had many vegetarians attending and Hempen Hill was the only caterer able to accommodate that requirement—the Mac and cheese, veggies, baked beans, potato salad, and other sides we chose were all naturally vegetarian (no hidden bacon bits, etc) so we didn’t need to have an entirely separate menu and the BBQ tofu was well reviewed by our guests. Would totally recommend! (And can’t wait to go back to the restaurant for an anniversary dinner.)

Thanks so much for checking in. Fortunately everyone was okay, just pretty shaken up, and some bruises and aches and pains all around. I was glad we were able to make it back to Hagerstown in time to pick up the BBQ – everyone loved it! We had some family in from out of town who hadn’t had your food before, and now I think they’re even more excited for our wedding! And Ben and I were glad to have delicious black bean wraps by the time we finally got around to eating! We’ve been so happy already with our choice of Hempen Hill, and our wedding is still eight months away! The food is delicious, of course, but we’re even happier about how helpful and caring the people have been. You’ve helped us figure out a menu that will make our guests happy and keep us within our budget, have gotten to know us and put together a plan that really fits who we are and the kind of wedding we’re planning, have been so flexible and helpful on dietary restrictions, and have just been an overall delight to work with. We love Hempen Hill!
