Testimonials

“So we have had venue changes before but I have to admit, the venue deciding to close the day of your event, due to inclement weather, is a first. I cannot express my gratitude enough for the army of people who jumped in to help me pull off such a successful event last night for Jerry Cook and his family. This was a MONUMENTAL day in their lives and having the venue close when they had been planning and envisioning this day for so long, could have been devastating. Armin’s Catering came to the rescue on the DAY OF and graciously opened up their venue and made this event happen!!!

It was last minute, yet they fully staffed it, prepped the food and jumped in to help my HOH girls rearrange their entire venue. They even hired someone to come out and plow their parking lot. And when one of our casino dealers couldn’t get there because of the icy roads, one of their staff members quickly learned how to be a blackjack dealer! I cannot say enough about them and how incredible they were. They literally saved the day.”

Just a few of our customer testomonials

My mom’s 70th Birthday Surprise was beyond what I ever expected it to be! You blew it out of the park. Everyone raved over the food. Your attention to detail & making my vision come true was perfect! Showing up with China & Flatware was such a surprise & literally finished it off with a bang! It’s the lite things that count! We had the perfect amount of food & didn’t do too badly on our beverages of choice. Your staff was efficient, polite & clean up went virtually unnoticed by guests who were still enjoying the evening. They were impeccable!

My mother was speechless & completely had no idea, all the way up until we opened that do for her! She’s still raving over it & said she’s never been so surprised in all her life. Was overwhelmed with emotion that evening & so grateful of friends & family! Thank you for everything!

Thank you for hosting the 2015 Prom for Davidson Day School. The venue was perfect for our Casino themed prom. The staff was professional and helpful and their expertise  in the planning and execution of the evening was so helpful. We look forward to working with you on future events.

Beaver Dam was the best choice we could have made for our wedding day. Not only are the grounds beautiful but the staff was extremely helpful. The staff went above and beyond to ensure that our day was everything we had imagined and more, from getting props to fit our theme to supplying us with lunch the day of. We were able to contact Ariel and Armin in the months leading up to the wedding with any and all questions and concerns. It sort of felt like we had our own wedding planner. As a bride, planning a wedding can be very stressful but the staff at Beaver Dam really made it a much more enjoyable experience. I could trust them with a great deal of the wedding details which is turn allowed me to focus on enjoying the special time that preparing for a wedding is.

AND THE FOOD…..for WEEKS after our guests would not stop talking about how delicious the food was at our wedding.

A word of advice if you do decide to have your wedding at Beaver Dam: I would recommend purchasing additional fans to have all around the tent reception area if you are having a summer wedding, it is worth it. We wish we had thought to do this because it does get stuffy under there. However, even with the heat our wedding was a dream so don’t let the worry of heat deter you from having an outdoor wedding, just plan ahead! We and our guests thoroughly enjoyed the day.

With that said, I would highly recommend Armin’s Catering and Beaver Dam to anyone who is looking to have an outdoor wedding.

Working with Armin’s Catering was effortless. Armin listened intently to the type of event that we were hosting, and worked closely with me to create the perfect menu and setting. His staff was professional, knowledgeable, reliable, and most of all – FUN to work with!
I highly recommend Armin’s Catering.

Armin’s catering catered a non-profit event in our community, It was a deeply meaningful event, but like with any non-profit organization we were on a limited budget. Armin’s went above and beyond to accommodate not only our budget, but to make our event beautiful and successful. They worked directly with the venue and were amazing. We truly enjoyed working with Armin’s and would use them again.

The best food and service around! Armin’s Catering is professional and friendly and flexible to what you need. They make you feel like family. At the end of the reception the staff helped is load up the car with our decor and leftover food. The costs are reasonable. Love them!

Mary, May 2014

 

We used Armins Catering for our catering needs as well as our venue and rental needs. The planning was so convenient especially with all the small details. We worked with the same few people throughout the planning process. The food was simply amazing and our guests are still talking about how great everything came together. The day of the wedding, Armins team implemented all the details throughout the night that we had discussed. And as far as we know everything was under control and went perfectly smooth. Overall we had a wonderful experience with Armin and his team.

We actually had a wedding reception, post ceremony. The venue was awesome! Had this been available during our planning of the wedding ceremony, we would have held it at the Pearl!!! The owners were so helpful and flexible. They made this event low stress!

Thanks to you and Armin’s we had a beautiful and delicious “spread” for Katy’s wedding event at Jetton yesterday. The folks that you sent to serve and to bar tend were so personable and friendly and did a wonderful job. We received so many wonderful compliments from our guests regarding the food that was served. Everyone ranted and raved about the bread pudding – so delicious!! Thanks for helping to make Katy’s day so very wonderful with your part in preparing the food and serving it so eloquently. It was all just perfect!

-Rita Stokes, Oct 2013

 

Your onsite staff for this event Saturday evening was phenomenal. Carl was very attentive to the specifics we gave him regarding the bar service of certain guests and kept me informed, and the catering manager, whose name I shamefully I cannot recall was outstanding. Very nice gentlemen you have there, and I appreciate their assistance and attention to detail.

Our wedding was perfect thanks to Armin and his team. They were completely accommodating to our vision and hopes for our big day. Clearly filled with experience, Armin and company made beautiful and unique suggestions that contributed to the fun and joy on our October 12 wedding. I often asked whether or not we could change an idea, menu item, or set up, and the response was always “We can do whatever you’d like.” I was planning our wedding from afar while living in Pittsburgh, nervous about planning from 600 miles away. But Armin’s team took care of everything, making themselves readily available to work around my schedule, always following up with me, and putting any concern I had to rest. All of our guests were so impressed with the venue, and an engaged bridesmaid even claimed that she wished she had known about Beaver Dam and Armin before booking her venue for her own wedding! I can’t say enough to express what a stress free experience it was to work with this company.

– Lindsey Dortch, October 2013

 

Armin’s staff was excellent. The venue was magical with 175 guests. Brides tend to change their minds about details and Armin was more than accommodating. I would certainly use them again, I had hoped to use them during the holidays but we ended up traveling. Overall it was a wonderful experience.

IT WAS AWESOME!!!!!! THE BEST!!!!!! My friends are still texting me about everything. The food was phenomenal!!!! We are living off the leftovers and LOVING it! I am still flying . Thank you for all of your help. Terry, Nick and Dillon were great too! The tent guys were on top of everything! I am so happy and will keep thinking of compliments to send to you. I think my neighbors were floored at the high level of this party!!!
Thank you again!

-Morgan Loughrey August ‘13

 

Thank you!!
The party was a huge success thanks to Armin’s. I will be using you guys whenever I need to cater an event.

I can always rely on Armin to give me more and boy do I appreciate that today!!

I can’t say enough about Armin & his incredible staff! Our charter yacht wedding was cancelled FOUR days before our wedding, & we were left with no venue, caterer, dj, bar etc. We called The Beaver Dam and spoke with Armin who made re-planning an entire wedding effortless! I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful venue or stress free day! Everything was taken care of and my husband and I were allowed to enjoy our special day! I highly recommend Armin to anyone!

Armin and his staff catered the wedding receptions for both my daughters. One was three years ago and the second in July of 2012. We did a buffet style the first time and a sit down dinner the second. The food was superb (above and beyond) both times. Our events were held at vineyards and required rental of a tent, tables, chairs, linens and table settings. Without Armin’s expertise and help with these, we would NEVER have been able to get it all done. I really gave Armin push back on the tent rental the first time, he was insistent that if it rained we would be in trouble so I gave in and guess what, it rained.(Armin saved the day) With my second daughter in July I had mentioned to Armin that I wanted to have a white sofa in the sitting area. As time got closer I completely forgot about that and to my surprise when I entered the reception there was a white sofa compliments of Armin. In addition to great food he and his staff pay close attention to detail and go all out to please the bride and groom and the mother!
