My family recently booked K&J catering and the Victorian Room for my brother's wedding rehearsal dinner, and the whole event was phenomenal! The room was a beautifully decorated space with plenty of room for all our guests. The food was spectacular - we received very positive comments from guests throughout the weekend. Not to mention that Kurt & Jean were so easy to work with from the planning stages through the end of the event. My family will be singing the praises of K&J catering for years to come! Thank you for helping us throw such a successful event!

The space and food were amazing for a luncheon following a funeral for a family member. Everyone left full and with a smile on their face. We will recommend K & J Catering to all our family and friends. The Liddiard's

Everything was great as far as food goes except the pork country style ribs, they were not cooked long enough. Another hour and they would have been falling apart like they should have. Service was wonderful...

We used K & J for my son's wedding reception. They were easy to work with, gave accurate up front pricing, and were very accommodating. For a wedding reception, they are the best deal in town! I would absolutely recommend them!

I love them! I have been a long time customer at K&J Catering. I am a childhood friend of the owners, as well as having used their services many times. K&J catered my wedding (and many others I have attended), and they catered a celebration of life for us. The kindness and going the extra mile were beyond compare. My family and I will never forget how kindly they treated us for these personal occasions. K&J has also catered numerous events for my work which is Adult Foster Care. We have used K&J for many holiday parties and our annual summer picnic. We have always been satisfied with the service and food both. The staff are professional and go out of their way to accomadate our diverse crowd. Special requests are no problem they will do all they can to make your event a great time. Thanks Kurt, Jean and family. Your the greatest!!

We used K & J catering for the first time this year for our company picnic. We were very impressed with their employees, the service and the quality of the food. We will be using them for our future company catering plans.

We recently used K&J Catering for a post wedding reception for our son and daughter-in-law who had gotten married earlier in Georgia. We couldn't have been happier with our experience! They had the Celebration Room all decorated for Christmas, which really added to the festive atmosphere. Jean and Kurt are so accommodating and worked with us to make sure the food was safe for family members with different food allergies. We went with Chicken Kiev and Roasted Pork Tenderloin--they did half with bbq sauce and half with honey Dijon--so delicious! People also raved about the garlic mashed potatoes. They let us bring in our own cake which helped keep costs down. Its also nice that they have their own sound system and different screens to show videos. It was a beautiful evening in every way, and the prices were very reasonable compared to other places we checked. I highly recommend K&J Catering!!

Never in a million years did I think my wedding was going to be so beautiful, and I have K & J Catering to thank for that. The food was excellent, every person in the room was completely satisfied and all I was told throughout the night was how delicious it was. Both Kurt and Jean, and the staff were amazing extremely helpful and very attentive. The venue looked gorgeous, I have nothing but great things to say!!!

K & J catered our event after my mothers funeral. We scheduled our event less than a week before. All the details were made in that time and it turned out fabulous. The room was decorated for Christmas, which was my mothers favorite holiday. The food was delicious and the room was warm and inviting. Also had some eclectic items to add to the conversation.

Everything was great, food was delicious and perfect for our simple wedding. Staff were professional. Only complaint is the bar staff packed up and left earlier than they said they would without warning. Me and some guests went in to get one last drink and realized they were gone. Otherwise we enjoyed working with K & J and would recommend them.

I had the PLEASURE of working with K & J Catering for a end of the year banquet for about 100 college students. Finding a venue that was fun, unique, accommodating, private and affordable was near impossible - we are SO lucky that we found K & J Catering! The family business was delightful to work with - Jean took extra care to ensure that everything looked lovely for our guests and Kurt felt like the joyful uncle who wants to make sure everyone was well-fed and had a good time! Parking was easy and free for guests, the venue was warm and homey, the food was STELLAR and all of the great people who work their really went above and beyond to give us a lovely event! THANK YOU AGAIN K&J!!! :)

In the months leading up to the wedding, my dad and my brother had one sole concern - what are we eating?! Luckily, K&J managed to please the two biggest critics in the family, along with the rest of our wedding guests. We had the champagne chicken and grilled pork tenderloin with dijon sauce- both were delicious! The garlic mashed potatoes were amazing, too! The staff was accommodating and easy to work with, and everything was reasonably priced, compared to several other places we'd looked. I'd would definitely recommend going with K&J for your next event.

K&J was great to work with! Communication was excellent as well as the food. Food also arrived when we expected and was enjoyed by all. I would definitely consider having K&J cater for any celebrations we might have in the future.

Great venue, great location, perfect size for what we needed. Great food, plenty for everyone. They were very flexible/accommodating with meeting our requests. Honestly, I don't think there is a single thing my wife and I could say to improve our experience with K&J.

North St. Paul Class of 1961 was very pleased with all aspects of K & J Catering while celebrating their 55th reunion in the Victorian room in September. The food was delicious and the service excellent. They were very helpful with any extra request we asked of them. I highly recommend K & J Catering for any event.
