We held an event for 130 people, and we were delighted with the food and the customer service. Our many emails to Mike prior to the event were all answered quickly, and our requests in terms of tweaking the menu (ingredients, additions, substitutions, supplies) were always accommodated; a number of items were also provided at no extra cost. The staff person came on time and set up quickly. Many guests commented positively on the food. The cost, moreover, was reasonable, especially after comparing other caterers, and although the final headcount/plates used may have exceeded our estimate, we were only charged for the prior estimate. All in all, it was good food, no hassle, and a very fair price.

I set up a contract and paid my deposit with Jaspers 4 months ago for my wedding reception this summer. I sent them an email last nite confirming and inquiring about some menu changes, and whether those menu changes would add cost to our contract. This morning, Dennis, the owner, sent me an email telling me has had decided not to cater my event. Of course I panicked! My reception is 6 weeks away and it summer, a very busy time cor BBQ caterers! His explanation was that I was ""manipulating him"" into a certain menu and basically told me that he wasn't comfortable doing business with the likes of me. The way he treated me was so incredibly UNPROFESSIONAL and BIZARRE! I let him know that we could keep the original menu, and also that I had no problem paying more. He basically had me reduced to tears and begging him to keep the contract. But then I realized, if my caterer was going to have such a fit all because I asked if we could take pork off the menu and just keep chicken and salmon, then this was nobody i wanted to do business with. I even asked two people to read the email I sent, just to see if anyone else thought it sounded ""manipulative"" or ""dishonest"". NOPE. All my readers stated that it was not me, and that it's good i found out now how high maintanance and psychotic thisguy was instead of at my wedding reception. I would rather cook for my guests myself instead of having Jaspers cater. Then nobody will start pissing their pants and making me feel like crap because I ask about taking the pork off the menu.

I had Jasper's cater our company picnic and found that the food was wonderful, service excellent and the price fantastic. We are a small non profit and Jasper's accomodated our needs. I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting a superior BBQ.

We just had our anniversary and our friends were still talking about how AMAZING our wedding BBQ was (even our discerning foodie friends)! Even though we picked the 'best weather day in Seattle', it POURED (Okay, the venue was Woodinville, but still..) Jasper's staff smiled through the whole day - even though they were barely covered by the tent, and they went home soaking wet ~ Our guests would never have known it because they were so happy with the food - and their service. The day was perfect, and we have such good memories... Thank You Jasper's!

Jaspers has to take lessons in customer service. They ruined my party by being rude, walked around harrassing guests and even said that they don't like doing parties witgh ""people like you"" which sounds pretty racist to me. They came and tried to tell people that they are done eating and left 45 minutes prior to their schedule departure. For special occassions, I recommend that you avoid JASPERS BBQ as they will ruin parties and don't know how to respect people, guests. There are a lot of BBQ vendors out there so make sure you call other ones. Even if it's a couple of dollars more, I recommend you look at getting someone else! BUYER BEWARE!
We had an outside wedding yesturday. Yes it was a casual wedding however it was a wedding none the less. Black,what looked like dirty, t-shirts and jeans are not appropriate.
They said they were going to bring a BBQ cooker and a steamer for clams. They were not brought and an immediate family member was told he didn't want to bring his steamer for the clams that were cold when served, because it was too much of a hassel. There was supposed to be enough for 100 people, we only had 65 people there were almost no leftovers. There should have been enough leftovers for 35 people.
We paid for an extra server to make it 3 people but it was only the 2 men that showed up. It was supposed to be 4 hours, they got here at 4:15p and left to catch the 6:40 ferry back to Seattle. I got alot of feed back that the food was full of bees and not kept covered and cold. I was lead to believe that he was going to be using chaffing dishes not foil pans without proper covers. There were no waterpans under the cooking pans and the food burnt onto the foil pans.
I will never use these people again it was embarrassing and very disapointing.

I used Jasper's for a corporate event. I gave them very little notice (about 1 day) and they were extremely flexible and willing to help. The prices were reasonable and I'd read some good reviews, so I thought I'd give Jasper's a chance. They came through with flying colors. They were right on time, provided way more than enough food (all you can eat!) and everyone raved about the authentic barbecue (the brisket and pulled pork were particularly well-received). I'll definitely use Jasper's again for future events!

We used Jaspers for our annual meeting and they were so easy to work with and the food was wonderful. When I wasn't sure exactly how many guests would be staying for the bbq Jaspers was very flexible and accommodating. I highly recommend them for any function social or business.

We've used Jasper's BBQ for employee luncheons twice in the last year, and we'll be back for a third! The food is delicious and truly ""all-you-can-eat"" (and we have some big eaters!) The ribs, chicken, brisket, and pulled pork were all moist and tender, with a sauce for any heat preference and tasty side dishes (try the corn bread - yum!) Paula and Dennis provide friendly, fun, on-time service. Give Jasper's a try for your next event - you won't be disappointed.
We recently used Jasper's BBQ for a team lunch and had a great experience. They were friendly, easy to work with and delivered a great meal. Jasper?s offers an exceptional value and the food was delicious. The portions were huge and the food never seemed to run out. The meat was hot and fresh and the side items were tasty too! I highly recommend Jaspers when in the mood for BBQ. You won?t be disappointed!!
Jasper's BBQ is my first catering choice for all my events. They're always on time, they bring plenty of great food, and they still manage to keep within my budget. Paula and Dennis are really friendly and accommodating, so working with them is a pleasure.
Most importantly, everyone who attends my events comments on how good the food is, and they keep coming back for seconds. (Me too!)
