“As an event planner, I've worked with many caterers and eaten a lot of good food. Chef J. is exceptional, not only in the innovative recipes he uses to provide clients with a uniquely flavorful experience, but also in his attention and willingness to work with very restricted dietary needs. He has my gratitude, and I highly recommend RedBarn Catering without reservation. ”

We wanted our guests to truly get a taste of Wisconsin while joining us for our grand celebration. Not only was the food delicious, but Chef J. was able to accommodate a wide variety of dietary restrictions. Beautiful, fresh, and tasty- thank you RedBarn Catering! ”

—“RedBarn Catering did a wonderful job at my wedding reception earlier this year. Chef J. Miller worked with us to design a fun, custom menu that veered more towards French Provincial than was shown on their website, and he was really enthusiastic about doing so. We found him to be very knowledgeable easy to work with, with a focus on using local ingredients. AND the cost was significantly more reasonable than quotes we had from other caterers for a similar amount of food and style. Chef J. even went the extra mile (literally) when he brought some items we’d forgotten at the venue back to Madison for us. RedBarn was recommended to us by a friend, and I really feel we could not have been luckier to have worked with them.”

—Monica & Tim

—“J. brought several different dishes and all of them were as good as the next.
5 stars for his professional service and quality of entrées.”

—Nate E.

—“J. was wonderful when we had him cater our holiday office lunch this past December. The food was delicious, fresh, and he served the food himself. If we have another event, we will certainly be having him cater it!
Thank you for everything!”

—Marta K.

—“We attended a weekend dance festival at Folklore Village last month and really enjoyed the food that was prepared and catered by friendly Chef J.! The food is always beautifully displayed...and it tastes wonderful! I would strongly recommend RedBarn Catering to others!”

—Wendy Coles

—“The RedBarn catered the lunch for our office holiday party in December, 2013. Everything I tasted was delicious, and the entrée options I did not choose looked equally great. Wish I could have tried them all! The choices were all creative and a refreshing change from the typical catered lunch choices. The ricotta spinach pie I chose was delicious, flavorful and fresh. I appreciated the many veggie side dishes offered as well. I would definitely recommend RedBarn and hope to find an excuse to use them for my catering needs in the future.”
