Absolutely, positively THE BEST!! Professional, Creative, Delicious, Delicious, Delicious! There is no other consideration when looking for a caterer! AND - extremely reasonable in cost. I will NEVER use anyone other than this caterer when planning an event! I am craving their appetizers now that I am thinking of them! They will look after EVERY last detail for you. If you want someone to take care of catering from A to Z for you – and then some – call them! They had me so excited for the big day to come because THEY are excited to work with you. Remarkable sums it up!


Working with the staff at the Barn on Bridge was outstanding. From the food to the decorations and the responsiveness and flexibility of the staff and coordinators, we were blown away. Our guests loved everything and had such positive remarks about the whole event!


I spent about 15 months planning my wedding, I wanted it to be perfect! When we first went to look at the Columbia Station we loved it! And no, we are not "train people" but you don't have to be to see the beauty in the Columbia Station! We first met with Bob, who is SO passionate about his company, employees and what they have to offer, it was truly inspiring! Once we booked our date I was in contact with Courtney; she is simply amazing. I would call and email her with any question, concern, or issue that needed to be tackled; she has the most positive and helpful attitude of anyone I have ever met! We also met with Kristin, while Bob was out because of an injury, and the transition was flawless. She was able to provide us with ideas and inspiration to create a beautiful wedding day not only for us but our guests as well. Stephanie was there for us when Courtney took on a different role in the company, I was nervous because Courtney was my rock with wedding planning! Again, it was such a smooth transition, Stephanie was quick to reply to phone calls and emails; she was open to what my vision was and worked with me to see it through... We had close to 200 guests; cocktail hour we had 4 bartenders; no guest waited in line for a drink. Butlered appetizers were delicious and in constant flow around the room. The bridal party was in the caboose and we received the same service; constant flow of drinks and apps! They saw my vision through and the inside of the bar room and ballroom looked beautiful! The food was hot and delicious! The servers were great and our day of coordinator, Kristen, did an excellent job! It was truly a pleasure to work with the staff of Robert Ryan Catering and to have our reception at the Columbia Station! I can't thank them enough for helping to create such a memorable day for us!


Robert Ryan is a wonderful job catering my wedding. I admit I had a tight budget, and Stephanie was my first contact; she was wonderful about it. I had options! So many, many options that I didn't with other caterers. Stephanie helped me put together a wonderful menu that was sooooooo good! Everyone was dying over our H'ordeuvres and how unique and delicious they were. Fried chicken waffle cone anyone? nThey were helpful leading up to the wedding, and on the actual wedding day, everything went without a hitch. The food was perfect, the service was perfect, the bar looked awesome. They added some decorations that looked amazing as well. nMy groom and I were greeted with our signature drink, and h'oerderves were saved for us at our table while we were getting photos taken.ni recommend Robert Ryan whole heartedly.
