Why Choose Lother's Catering ?



  • "Lother's went above and beyond to ensure we had the best food and the best set up they could provide."

    - Beth G.
  • My uncles run Lother's Catering, so I may be a little biased in saying that they are my favorite catering business in Greater Cincinnati, however I had so many people come up to me after my wedding raving about the food, some being so bold as to say it was the best wedding food they have ever had. Not only are the prices reasonable, but they are so easy to work with, the food is incredible, and the presentation is even better. If you have the option to choose your own catering at your venue, I would highly recommend Lother's! Insider tip ... the macaroni and cheese is the best you will ever eat. Don't let a fancy venue deter you from making this part of your menu. We had our wedding at Music Hall and everything was amazing.

  • John Lother and his staff helped to make our wedding a huge hit. It has been 3 1/2 months since our wedding and we still get complements on the food that we served with comments such as, "Your food by far was the best wedding/catered food that I've ever had". Everything was delicious and very fairly priced. Our menu included items fit for the upcoming July 4th holiday with fried chicken, pork shoulder, caprice salad, potatoes and seasonal Italian-style vegetables. The rustic design of the buffet layout fit perfectly into our barn wedding and John's staff was outstanding in keeping the food coming and helping out guest with some special requests. Thanks John!

  • The food was absolutely amazing! We received so many compliments on how delicious it was. There was something ther for my vegetarians, lactose intolerant people, and gluten free people to eat. Overall very pleased with the quality of their food.

  • From the beginning of the wedding process and finding a caterer was a little stressful until I found Lother's Catering! I worked with John Lother and he made my experience everything but stressful! We met a couple times at his meeting room to taste food! We had several different items to choose from! We went with four different entree's the night of the wedding and everyone loved them! When planning for a wedding the main thing I was concerned about was my food, because guest remember what the food taste like, sorry but they don't remember what your flowers looked like! I believe since our wedding 4 or 5 guest have asked about our catering and have used Lother's Catering for their weddings and/or events! Besides how amazing the staff was the night of the wedding what I loved and what stood out to me was the display that they set up for the food to be served around! Absolutely beautiful and eye catching! Also, the pricing was very reasonable !Since the wedding I have also taken advantage of their meeting room for different business meetings and parties/celebrations for work! The service and food they provide there is still 5 star!Thank you John Lother for being the BEST cater in Northern Kentucky!

  • Lother's did a great job on the catering for our wedding. We spoke with several vendors and most had a minimum that was well over our guest count (60 people). Lothers did not have a minimum and offered a large selection at a reasonable cost. They provided a lot of options for the tasting and advised that they could make just about anything for us if we had other requests. In addition to the catering, we ordered linens through the caterer and were able to pick them up in advance. There was a small issue with the linens (square rather than round), but the owner corrected it quickly and we had the right linens for our wedding. There was also a small issue with the quote being somewhat different that what we talked about at the tasting, so I would recommend following up quickly with them to work everything out. On our wedding day, they set everything up for the buffet and the food was very good!! It wasn't dry or overdone and had a lot of flavor. The attendants that were there were helpful and friendly. We also arranged for a bartender through Lothers and she did a great job. Overall, I am VERY happy with our choice and would definitely recommend Lothers to others.

  • They serve the best food, my guests all agree. Great service too.

    - Jennifer
  • The staff was very nice, the food table looked beautiful and everyone was raving about the food! With our wedding being so close to Thanksgiving I tried to stay away from traditional Thanksgiving food. I was very impressed with their variety of food choices. Thank you Lother's Catering! I will be using you for events in the future and would recommend you to family/friends and other brides!

  • Lother's did a great job with the catering for our wedding. They set up a tasting with a huge plate of different types of food and advised that they could do just about anything we requested. There was no minimum headcount for them to work with us. In addition to the catering, we rented linens through Lothers. We picked up the linens a couple of days before the wedding and realized that they were square rather than round. The owner quickly fixed it and got the correct linens to us well before the ceremony. The day of the ceremony, Lother's delivered the food on time and did a great job setting everything up. The attendants they assigned were very friendly and helpful. We also arranged for a bartender through Lother's and she was fantastic. The food itself was flavorful and cooked well. The chicken was juicy and well seasoned, not dry and tasteless as in so many weddings I have been to. There was more than enough to feed our guests and we had plenty of leftovers that reheated well. I would absolutely use Lother's again if I had an event that needed catering. They did a great job and the staff was fantastic!

  • Lother's was the perfect choice for our wedding. They definitely knew what they were doing and were a great help to me the week before the wedding as I stressed about all of the details. For our buffet we ended up choosing a lemon herb chicken breast, salad, rolls, roasted potatoes, pasta primavera, and green beans. It was delicious and very reasonable in price!

    - Hannah P
  • Great selection of food! Great service. Lots of choices to choose from and GREAT price!

    - Haley B
  • Food was great!!! Guest all said it was hot and very delicious!!!

  • I have never been to a wedding with a buffet where there were no food left over but sure enough that was the case at my wedding. Lother's has been the caterer at almost every wedding in my family and after my wedding I understand why. Lother's went above and beyond to ensure we had the best food and the best set up they could provide. I saw people going back for third, fourth and even fifth helpings. We had them for our rehearsal dinner as well and they were so helpful and curteous and made sure that everyone had enough to eat and enjoyed the food. The food looked too good to eat but once evreyone dug in it was hard to stop!!
