Amazing Food, Staff, and Service!

"Words cannot begin to describe how thrilled I was with Tom's Market! From start to finish, they help you feel comfortable with all of the choices that you have to make when it comes to picking a caterer. We were lucky enough to work with Felicia (their in house wedding coordinator) who instantly feels like a friend you have had your whole life. Her caring demeanor is genuine, she truly takes on every aspect of your event as if it were her own. She handled everything from menu planning, budget help, tasting, linens, floor plans, decor, to even just the occasional email checking in. The food was SPECTACULAR. We didn't want to have a wedding where you get the typical dried out stuffed chicken that is blah. And what we got couldn't have been further from that! They cook everything on site, and the ingredients are fresh and delicious. We didn't have one single appetizer left after cocktail hour, and everyone was racing up to the dinner buffet for seconds (and thirds). Everyone of my guests RAVED about how great the food was. The price was extremely reasonable too. With 6 passed apps, seated salad, open bar,a 3 entree buffet with sides, and a Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream Sundae Bar (Ben and Jerry's literally came, tie dyed shirts and all).. we only paid a little over $100 pp. I'm sure the prices vary vastly depending on what you want, but the buffet was perfect. It got everyone up out of their seats and the vibe was fun from the get go. They also bring in their own flowers to decorate the buffet with. I would very highly recommend Tom's Market to anyone having a wedding or event in the Newport area!" - ,

Our Family & Friends are STILL Raving!

"HANK YOU for the unbelievable job you and your team did in making Leah & Camron's wedding an event that our family and friends are still talking about. It was by far the best wedding we have ever attended. Your attention to detail was incredible. We really can't thank you enough for what you did to make their wedding day so special. We really appreciate you taking charge of the day so we could enjoy the wedding with our family and friends. I know both Leah and Debbie could not have asked for anything more. They like to have things just perfect, and the little details like the fireplace, the table setting, to the cake table set up were just awesome. As for the food and the level of service we received, they were way beyond our expectations. Like I said before our family and friends are still talking about the wedding. I had a feeling that it was going to be really nice, but from being out of the area and not having any past experience with you or Tom's Market we had to trust in you and what others were telling us. It's not often I submit a review like this because I figure I'm paying for good service and it should be expected but your efforts did not go unnoticed. The Clam Chowder and Shrimp cocktail were definitely the talk of the cocktail hour. The quality was outstanding but the presentation and the professionalism of your staff was off the charts. We really do appreciate everything you did to make the day something we will always remember. Thanks again and Best of Luck to you in the future. Hopefully we will get a chance to enjoy another wedding with you and your services" - Harry D., East Norriton, PA

Delicious Buffets!

Our Bellies Were Filled

"If you are looking for a home run for your next catered event, Tom's Market Catering is the place to go with! I can't say enough good words for our wedding events coordinator, Serina McMaster, who worked with us from the start. She was speedy and personable in her emails and helped us work through all the planning details for the night's timeline of events. Chef Jody's food was absolutely delicious and we keep getting compliments days later about how good the food was. Her deviled eggs are out of this world! Robin was attentive and helped to keep my husband and my bellies filled with tasty food and beverages throughout the evening. I didn't feel like we were working with just any caterer as the friendliness and attention to detail from each staff member far exceeded our expectations. Tom's is also a win as they were very affordable and worked with our budget. I can't thank them enough for helping to make my wedding day one that myself, my husband and guests will never forget. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!" - The Bowen's, Portsmouth, RI

"Amazing caterer! From start to finish they are professional and polite! Each part of our wedding planning process was smooth, fun and enjoyable! From my first conversation with Glenn and each one after with our awesome wedding planner Serina McMaster! She's a such a great person to talk to and plan with. Loved this whole process! Tom's catering is the BEST in New England! Our food was amazing and designed to our tastes and needs. Our service was amazing I! Each guest mentioned how nice the service staff was and how awesome the food tasted! Our guests mentioned that they have never had apps. that great! Think they almost licked the plate! Desert was even more Delicious! I never wanted the night to end and Serina and her staff made me tear up after seeing what a great job they did! She's definitely a new friend for life!

The Best Day of My Life

"I cannot say enough about Serina McMaster, Robin, and the whole crew at Tom's for making our wedding such a wonderful, amazing, joyous (not enough adjectives) night. These people are not just "put the food on your plate" caterers, they are full service event planners!! Yes, there were a few glitches--which were the venues issues--that the Tom's staff helped us resolve without a hitch. Everyone had a great time! Everything looked beautiful! Serina worked with us so closely from day one, and made my vision come to life. It meant the world to me. We had a cocktail reception, which was Serina's suggestion, based on what we had described to her. The night went by in a blur, but I feel like everyone had plenty to eat, were well taken care of by the staff, and only had great things to say! I would highly recommend Tom's Market Catering, and would use them again in the future. THANK YOU SO MUCH for making my wedding one of the best days of my life!!!" - The Ferry's, Greenvale Vineyards

Our Backyard Wedding

"Thank you for the wonderful job Toms Market did on the catering.From the first, our families were charmed by how much your chefs and employees seemed to care, when we attended the tasting last October. You all were great in having a full set of tastings for us, even though we had to be there at 9 am! We very much appreciated that you worked with our timeline since we are all from Maryland and were just up there for the holiday weekend. I really appreciated the professionalism during this whole journey, and answering innumerable detailed questions from us, comparing variables in costs, and explaining choices. To us, it was all new, so it was important for us to understand our choices . We are sure you and Jaime Nelson, our wedding planner, coordinated so much, especially the last week right before the wedding but I appreciated how I never heard a word about that. Your professionalism allowed me to completely enjoy the week, and especially the big day! All our guests loved the food, from the fresh and tasty raw bar, to the specialty drinks, the Mediterranean table and the passed appetizers all at the cocktail hour, everyone raved. The station décor was just brilliant- the shells and fish netting on the Rhode Island table , and the Japanese fish balls on the raw bar were my favorites. But all the décor was as advertised, just spectacular. My guests loved the Rhode Island table (the clam cakes, lobster rolls and the soup all were much enjoyed) and the pasta table, the steak got rave reviews, as did the short ribs , mentioned often to us, as well as one of my favorites, the salmon! I also loved all the cooked veggies there for the taking. So the food was a big hit. The staff and bartenders were all exceedingly polite, approachable and friendly, just as we asked. And they were constantly cleaning up, which was great. For instance, a number of wait staff had obviously been told who the major players were and it seemed like I had someone "on" me to get me water, drinks, food- which was so much appreciated. My daughter said the same. That is service ( since my feet hurt and I didn't look forward to chasing someone down to find out myself!) To sum up, the food was a huge hit and our guests will be talking about it for a long time. Cheers to all of you and thank you so much for a superb show!" - Stellmann and Gaines, Westerly

An Intimate Reception

"Jessie, Alex, and Norman were fantastic, and so was the food! We had a very small wedding party in our family home, and the team from Tom's made the event so special. The delicious food, thoughtful service, and careful preparation with our food allergies made the party perfect. And they were so fun...they did not seem to mind our crazy family dancing and even took pictures with our phones. Well done...we will highly recommend." - Erin W.,

Couldn't Have Asked for More

"My husband and I couldn't have asked for anything more than Tom's Market Catering! From the start they were amazing! They helped us start to finish with menu and wedding details.

Thank you for everything Tom's Market we are dreaming of the next event we can have you cater!" - The Spivla's, The Towers in Narragansett
