GALLERY & TESTIMONIALS
Our event attendees commented on how delicious the food was. The size of the shrimp on the seafood station was impressive, and the carving station was fabulous! The servers did a great job of quietly packing up without disturbing the party.
I was recently married at the Farm at Dover (on October 15th) and had the pleasure of working with [Saz's Catering] throughout the planning process. Not only did [Saz's] go above and beyond with the tasks within [their] job description, but [they] completely blew me away with help on my place settings. I'll try to spare you the gory details, but in short I had planned to tie velvet ribbon around each napkin and place a rosemary sprig and placecard within. [Saz's] assured me I would not want to be doing this on my big day, and generously offered to do it for me. I can't even imagine how long this took, and am so incredibly grateful. Not only that, but [Saz's] executed the various items for the head table without me giving virtually any instruction since I was pulled away. And let me say, [Saz's] captured my vision perfectly, and executed even better than if I did it myself. And coming from a complete control freak, that's saying a lot. Anyway, I just needed to sing [Saz's] praises because [they were] such an integral part to my wedding and never in a million years would I expect that out of a caterer. Kudos to a job incredibly well done. I will absolutely be recommending Saz's to anyone in the Milwaukee area for future catering needs.
Hired Saz's to cater one of my larger customers holiday luncheons. The food was fantastic!! All food was packaged very well and the amount was very generous. [Saz's Catering] was very helpful when planning the menu. I highly recommend Saz's. My customer is still talking about the fantastic meal.
I wanted to thank you for all of your help with our family celebration. You have been a pleasure to work with. You were always so prompt and professional and getting back to me about the details. The party yesterday was ‘perfect’! We were very pleased with the food and all of the staff. Their set-up and clean-up was seamless and amazingly efficient. Our guests raved about the food and the attentiveness of the staff.
Our party was a great success thanks to you all! [Saz's Catering] was great to work with. [Saz's] was very accommodating and always answered all of my questions in a timely manner. I had a great experience working with you all and hope to do so again in the future!
There are not enough words to express our thanks and kudos on a job extremely well done! Our employees were delighted with the lunch and could not stop raving! Thank you all for your service and professionalism. We look forward to working with your throughout 2018! Thank you again.
Thank you so much to you and your entire team that made it possible! It was wonderful working with you all to create this unique menu that fit our vision so well. Everything was amazing and I can’t thank you enough.
The food was absolutely amazing - numerous people came up to us to tell us how good the appetizers and dinner were! Saz's was super accommodating with helping us pull together menu options that allowed for our gluten-free and dairy-free friends and family enjoy the same quality dinner as everyone else. The staff was very professional and were able to work within the constraints of the venue (no onsite kitchen). All of the food was hot, which we were also excited about because we knew the lack of kitchen could make that more difficult. I will be recommending Saz's going forward whenever one is looking for a caterer because of the awesome experience we had 🙂
I lead Evans Transportation Services' internal events planning group and was so happy to hire Saz's Catering for the Thanksgiving luncheon that we had for the whole team at HQ last week! People couldn't stop talking about how delicious the food was and many even commented on the perfect presentation. Best moment was overhearing one employee walk into the luncheon room and say "Jeez, they treat us like kings and queens here." Felt so good to know we provided that level of value to a deserving team for a price that made "the powers that be" happy. As a very busy marketing and comm director with little time to dedicate to internal event planning but a strong desire to treat our team to the best, Saz's is always the perfect partner: I place our order, then Saz's takes care of absolutely everything else without my having to worry about a thing - even meticulous clean up! We hosted our Thanksgiving luncheon in our training room and after the giant buffet was over and all 40+ team members had gotten at least one plate, Saz's cleaned up so well that - afterward - it looked completely unused and ready for the next meeting. Seriously, these guys are the best. Can't wait until next time!
Just wanted you to know how well the party went last night. [The Saz's team] came early also and set up all the serving dishes and food in a very efficient manner. The food was awesome!!! Of course, the bourbon glazed short ribs were a major hit. Your company definitely plans for seconds and more. A+ grades to everyone, starting with your attention to our desires at the tasting, your polite approach to a customer and your great follow up after an email or call. Thanks so much to everyone at Saz's.
Everything was great, my family loved it and the food was so easy to reheat. I was very happy with the quality and the amount of food we got. Will definitely order again!
I know it sounds so cliché to say, but our wedding day really was the best day ever! We had both our ceremony and reception at South Second in September. The transition of the room from ceremony to reception and the entire day itself was executed perfectly- (which is obviously every bride's dream come true!). [Saz's Wedding Specialist] is truly wonderful and I couldn't recommend her and the staff at South Second enough. In the months leading up to our big day, [They were] an absolute pleasure to work with. [They are] incredibly organized, responsive, knowledgeable, and professional. [They] helped to ease our concerns and took some of the stress out of wedding planning- which every bride and groom knows is huge! [Their Wedding Specialist] is a rock star and she is one of the reasons why we are so thankful we chose South Second for our big day! As far as the food goes, Saz's did not disappoint- no surprise there of course. We had breakfast for dinner and the food was awesome. All of our guests gave us so many compliments. It was perfect that we were able to have our hors d'oeuvres coordinate with our breakfast theme, and of course, they were delicious! We are so thankful that we decided on South Second for our wedding. The space is absolutely beautiful and unique. [Saz's] and the rest of the staff at South Second were so professional and accommodating, we couldn't have asked for a better group of people. Overall, I think it's pretty obvious that we loved our experience at South Second and will remember our wonderful day for a lifetime! 🙂
Everyone enjoyed the food and quite a few employees told me it was the best breakfast we've had at our office. Everything was really good and we'd like to try other food.
On behalf of the Dolan and Wozniak families, and especially the Bride and Groom -- Bridget and Matt Wozniak -- we want to thank you and the South Second team for an extraordinary event this past Saturday! Without exception, all of our guests made a point to tell us how much they enjoyed the venue, the service, the food, and the vibe of South Second. And 'enjoy' is too small a description for how they raved and raved about South Second.
At the top of the list of raves and compliments was THE FOOD! We and all of our guests were very impressed and truly enjoyed the dinner. The cocktail hour and passed hors-d'œuvres were a hit and set the tone and mood for the evening. The dinner choices of filet, salmon and vegetarian were delightful. Of course, the service was impeccable, the bartenders attentive and accommodating, and the crew that helped us with our post-reception cleanup couldn't have been more helpful.
You worked the hand-in-glove with the bride to make sure all of her wishes and wants were handled. The level of service you provided along the way reinforced the wise choice we made in reception venue.
Saz's has given Milwaukee a venue that delivers on the Milwaukee experience--great food, great atmosphere, and great personal service. We encourage anyone planning any kind of gathering in Milwaukee to look at South Second--they will be glad they did.
Our thanks to you and your team, again, for helping to make this BIG DAY in the lives of both families a day to remember warmly for the rest of our lives.
Saz's was a phenomenal choice for a caterer at our vow renewal! Planning was easy, communication was great and the food was outstanding!! I would definitely recommend them to anyone!
Cannot say enough about Saz's and the amazing dinner they put on for our wedding! Our coordinator was amazing to say the least! She answered all of [our] emails so timely, and adjusted our invoices so quickly when we decided to make a change. The food was amazing, hot, great portions, and we got so many compliments from all of our guests. The service was discreet and elegant and on time- I didn't even notice a delay between tables being served, as the amount of servers delegated was perfect for our size wedding. Great food and great service- all a bride can ask for from her caterer!
Saz's did an incredible job with our company boat cruise - the fajitas tasted like they came straight from Mexico! The service was wonderful and we never felt like Saz's couldn't cater to our needs, even with a few last minute changes.
Thank you so incredibly much for all of your time and work in making Friday the most perfect party! It was honestly everything I ever wanted and I am very grateful for all your your insight, attention to detail, and organization. The night was seamless! Additionally, I'm pretty certain every single guest found us or a family member to tell us how amazing the food was. Our friends and family LOVED the appetizers, dinner, and late night food! Seriously, I was blown away! I mean how does anyone even make 200 steaks to such perfection?! Everyone was so kind and helpful and I could sing your praises forever but you have had a long, busy weekend and don't need pages of my gushing! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything!
[Saz’s] IS THE BEST EVER! From day #1, [our sales and event manager] felt like a friend. She captured every single detail and executed day of PERFECTLY. My husband, our families/parents, and I could not possibly have been more pleased with the team’s service, communication, customer service and actual meal. It was wonderful – Saz’s truly added to the awesomeness of our day. Thank you x10000!
The dinner provided was professional. [Saz's] all worked extremely hard, running up and down the stairs to ensure the offerings were continuously filled. You never had to ask for anything, they anticipated every need.
We had our wedding catered by Saz's on 9/16/2017. Our guests cannot stop raving about the variety of food available, and the flavors! We went with the station-style set up and had a carvery station, vegetarian fusion station, summer bbq station, and street taco station. We also had late night food from the sampler platters and rootbeer floats available later in the evening. The event staff was so fun and helpful! [They] came to find my husband and I while we were visiting tables to make sure we had enough to eat before they tore down the stations. Highly recommend working with Saz's for any Milwaukee wedding or large event. Their office and day of staff did everything they could to provide us and our guests with a memorable evening.
[Saz's] and the day of event staff provided us and our guests with an unforgettable evening! There is not another caterer I would dream of using or recommending in the Milwaukee area. Thank you so much for everything. You blew us and our guests away!
I wanted to say thank you!! I'm so glad we chose South Second, everything definitely exceeded my expectations! You'll be happy to know, we've gotten SO many compliments on the venue choice and many people told us it was the best wedding food they've ever had! I can't believe it's all over. Thank you so much for an amazing day.
From start to finish, [South Second and Saz's] provided exceptional service and were always happy in doing so! There is a huge benefit to having your own personal event manager walk you through each step of the process. On the night of our wedding, all our guests kept saying was how amazing the venue and food was. They loved the open, airy feeling that the location has, especially when the garage doors are open! The layout, lighting, spacing and everything just flowed so well. We couldn't have imagined anything better. I highly recommend working with Saz's for a top notch experience at a very reasonable price as well!
Seriously, I don’t know how you are doing it. [Saz’s has] really raised the bar on our events. It was so perfect [with] signature Wisconsin food and beverage. The food was unique and local. Thank you for bringing the Saz’s Experience to them. It was great to have some of the festival favorites to share. The salads were light and refreshing. I loved the corn salad. The Brandy/Whiskey Old Fashioneds were a hit. It was a nice ice breaker, too, for our Denver Friends. I overheard several times, “…try the Old Fashioned. They are a Wisconsin drink.” Your bartenders kept my glass full! [The Saz’s staff has] amazing attention to detail. [They] treated our guests like family. Great energy. Thank you…thank you…for working with me. I know how busy [Saz’s is] with festivals, fairs and shows. I trust you and you help me do my job. You and your menus make ME look like a rock star. [Saz’s is] an important part of my team here.
Our State Fair event was an unbelievable success!! I’ve never received so many accolades, from the awesome food to the amazing staff! Everything was on point! Thank you!
Thank you so much for making our Brewers tailgate party a success! [Saz's] was responsive, patient and went "above and beyond" as we worked through our menu options for the event. [Saz's] made the beautiful night at Miller Park a night to remember with their great service, hospitality and providing the delicious and one-of-a-kind Saz's food! This was our first event as a company at Miller Park and with Saz's Catering. We look forward to more events in the future with Saz's!
I can NOT say enough good things about South Second! We booked when the venue wasn't even done being constructed yet, so I have to be honest I was nervous going in since I relied on reviews for booking all of my other vendors, and obviously there were now reviews for South Second yet. I am SO thankful we went with South Second for our wedding reception. [Saz's] was absolutely incredible to work with. I had tons of ticky tacky questions and [they] helped me answer all of them, we had a last minute seating change that [they] accommodated quickly and professionally on the day of. We have gotten so many compliments on how fun and beautiful the venue was. I also can't even count how many people said it was some of the best food they've ever had at a wedding. This place and the staff are absolutely amazing.
Thank you so much for a job very well done, bravo to the Saz's team! We look forward to the opportunity to work with you again soon, and greatly appreciate your participation and support for this very special event supporting our military veterans.
I can't imagine celebrating our big day anywhere else! [Saz's] was absolutely amazing to work with. [They] answered all of our questions and [were] very attentive to what we wanted. [South Second] is absolutely gorgeous, definitely one of Milwaukee's gems! So many of our guests said it was the BEST food they've ever had. And I heard over and over how much everyone loved the venue and how unique it was. My husband's family is from all out of town, so we wanted to do our wedding as "Milwaukee" style as possible and South Second was absolutely perfect. I don't think I could be any happier. I highly recommend South Second.
Thank you again for such a great event last night! Everyone was very happy – which makes me very happy. We appreciate you and your team’s efforts. Corporate Event at Saz's Hospitality Village at Wisconsin State Fair
After nearly one month, we cannot think of a single thing that could have gone better at our reception. Saz's and all of the South Second staff all ensured that our wedding would not be forgotten. [Saz's] went far and above [its] job description to make the evening perfect. The food was out of this world, and our guests could not get enough of it. Wisconsin Fish Fry just blew all other wedding food out of the water. The whole package was something that could not have been duplicated anywhere else. Please do yourself a favor, check this place out. You will not be disappointed.
Planning a wedding with South Second and [Saz's] was a DREAM! Everything about the venue, food, bar service, and staff was perfect! The best part of working with [Saz's] and South Second was that they definitely made you feel like they have done this a million times (way less stressful for you!), while also truly caring about your thoughts/ideas/opinions on how to make YOUR wedding day unique and special. [They were] extremely responsive to any questions I had, and [they] helped me nail down a perfect timeline for the reception. You not only get a big, beautiful space for your event, but also a coordinator to make sure everything goes smoothly. Also, the food was delicious! Saz's can do no wrong! A ton of people told me it was the best wedding food they had ever had. I would recommend South Second for any event, especially weddings! The entire process will not only be stress-free, but also FUN! And your expectations will be exceeded! Thank you so much to South Second and Saz's for being such a huge part of my wedding day, and making it so wonderful!
We could not be more happy with how our reception went at South Second. The set up of the space, the food, drinks, and the flow of the night was better than we could have ever dreamed. It was perfect! Thank you so much for all of your help! We will definitely recommend South Second to our friends and family.
Oh my gosh, I can't thank you enough. Josh and I never once worried about the food/rentals while we worked with [Saz's] - you had our trust completely and you guys definitely did not let us down! Thank you for being a total dream to work with from start to finish. Your customer service was BOMB, and you're seriously just phenomenal to work with. We will TOTALLY be recommending Saz's to other people in the future. Thank you for making it such a great day. We received so many compliments about the food and the service and we just could not have been happier.
I am beyond thrilled that we chose Saz's to cater our wedding! [They were] so easy to work with. [They] always responded super promptly to all of my emails and I knew we were in good hands. The staff the day of was super attentive and friendly. And the FOOD! the food was outstanding. We chose more of a summer BBQ theme and it was served family style. Our guests could not stop raving about the food. It was amazing. Thank you Saz's for everything you did to contribute to our awesome day!
My husband and I could not have had a better experience with South Second! The food [by Saz's Catering] was phenomenal and the staff was beyond accommodating and professional. We were receiving compliments all night! Our Event Manager was extremely personable and made sure every little detail was perfect! We voiced that we were paying for the wedding on our own, and [They were] extremely helpful with making sure we stayed within budget without sacrificing the food and drink we wanted. Also, I was sad when I thought I might miss eating our apps before the reception. When we pulled up to South Second [Saz's] had apps and champagne waiting for us in the bridal suite while [they] took our cocktail orders to make sure we had cocktails during dinner (the bar closed during dinner). We thank everyone at Saz's for making our wedding so perfect and memorable!
Saz's was our first pick for catering at our wedding. There food was delicious- so delicious my family is STILL talking about it days after the wedding. Thank you so much Saz's for making our day that much more memorable-even if it was just food. I would recommend Saz's toanyone planning a wedding! We thank you!
I do not think I can say great things about South Second and their staff! We visited and chose South Second during their construction period and they exceeded all expectations that we could have had. Our entire wedding weekend ran so smooth because of South Second. The event manager was a gem to work with and always receptive to emails and answering my endless bride questions. She was available all evening to be sure that my groom and I were happy and her staff was constantly checking in. Our food was absolutely delicious and we've received endless compliments on how great it was "for wedding food." The space is great and I have to give credit to the team in flipping the space while still hosting a successful cocktail hour. The night manager was so helpful at the end of the evening in loading the shuttles and helping to pack boxes, which was definitely not in his job description! Thank you to everyone at South Second & Saz's for hosting the night of our lives!
Everything last Thursday was fantastic. The food was great and the kids (and chaperones) loved [South Second] and the set up. I was told by a veteran chaperone that this was the best Senior Dinner Dance that they had been to. I'll keep in touch about next year's event. Again, thanks for the terrific service at our event. Have a great summer!
It was first class from start to finish. [Saz's] was wonderful. The person who came to set up was terrific. The food was generous, which is a great compliment when you are feeding a room full of teenagers, and not to mention, our administrators and community guests. Lots of great feedback on the food. [Saz's] and staff are top notch. You have a winning organization all the way around. We will be back.
Thank you so much for everything! Everyone had a great time and LOVED the space [at South Second]. The whole team did a fantastic job. Please thank everyone for us.
I just wanted to take a quick moment to say thank you for coming offsite and providing such great food and service at Majic last night! The shrimp dinner was fantastic and I may or may not have licked my crème brulee dish clean. Thank you for all you do and continue to do to make our chapter and industry better!
Saz's exceeded my expectations for my event. The planning was simple, even though I was planning my event from out of town. I was very pleased with the service at my event and all of my guests complimented me on the menu and the food. The bread pudding will go down in history as the best dessert ever! Thank you, Saz's!
I am never disappointed with Saz's. From placing the order to delivery, the service is always exceptional. My Compliments to the entire staff!
Everyone that I worked with was extremely helpful, professional and kind. Our entire experience exceeded our high expectations of Saz's. Thank you so much!
Thank you so much for your patience and gracious hospitality as we planned John and Elizabeth's rehearsal dinner. At every step of the way, you made it easy. So appreciated! You were always very quick to respond and accommodate our requests. Also greatly appreciated. Thank you for everything!
I organized a corporate banquet dinner at South Second and could not have been happier with the event. [Saz's] was excellent to work with--from the menu and the layout to a few last minute day-of requests, [they] helped us with everything we needed to make the event run as smoothly as possible. The venue itself was beautiful as well, everyone raved about the space and we hope that we get to use it again for future events. Highly recommended, cannot say enough good things!
Thanks for your support at this year's Oshkosh Excellence Awards Ceremony! We really appreciated your flexibility (even when we started dinner really early!). Again, appreciate your support and wonderful food once again.
I cannot say enough good things about South Second. We had our wedding there this December and it was a dream. First off, their [events specialist] is the absolute best. We booked the site before construction had even started. I knew it was going to be the best choice for us just by talking to [Them]. [They were] so responsive and helpful. I finally got to see the venue and meet the staff a few months later and I was so happy to see it looked exactly as they planned. Not only will you get an industrial and modern venue to make your own, but you will get to use Saz's catering which was above and beyond our expectations. The food on the wedding day tasted exactly like the tasting did months prior. We did family style dining and our guests really enjoyed it. I highly recommend South Second for a wedding venue.
It was literally the BEST catering I've ever had in my life! Everyone in attendance had rave reviews for everything that was offered. I will be booking my next party at another location in the future, and a major consideration in that location decision is if we can have YOU cater the meal! Thanks for all your help!!
We worked with the Saz's team to create a menu for our reception that would leave people saying "man that was delicious" instead of "oh, did you have the chicken or beef?". The Saz's team NAILED IT. Their communication is swift and detailed and the entire process from initial inquiry email to packing up and leaving during the reception was perfect. The team the night of the wedding was fun, professional, and warm. They all made sure the bride and groom ate- they prepared a plate of appetizers and hid it behind the bar for us and also escorted us through the buffet first. And they did a great job of making sure everyone else was being fed in a timely and efficient manner. Just a delightful experience, I can't recommend them enough. There wasn't a single thing we needed to worry about when it came to our food that night.
I honestly can't say enough good things about our experience with Saz's from the planning stages all the way up to our wedding! [Saz's] was a dream to work with! [They] always emailed me back promptly answering any and all questions I had and sat down with us to figure out our options for dinner and even helped us figure out the timeline for our evening, which was a huge help as a first time bride! The food at our wedding was amazing and our guests were still raving about it the next day. I was so so impressed with the quality of service by the waitstaff; everyone was extremely polite and attentive; the on site manager during our wedding even offered to carry my plate for me! Both my husband's and my own parents commented on how impressed they were with the entire staff as well, especially the ones who stayed towards the end and helped clean up. I definitely recommend Saz's to anyone who needs a great caterer for their event!
Thank you so much for all of your work. The food was absolutely delicious and we had so many compliments from our guests regarding how much they enjoyed the meal and the appetizers! Your staff was incredibly helpful and professional! We will definitely recommend Saz's to anyone who needs an event catered. You guys are awesome!!
Thank you so much for everything! I found out about how Saz's provided my cousin (who apparently has 10 million allergies) dinner on the night of the wedding despite me not being aware of these allergens and in turn you guys not knowing. You seriously went way above and beyond! And I cannot tell you how many guests complimented us on the food and the venue. Please send my compliments to Saz's Catering team. Tom and I didn't have high expectations for the food because we have been guests to so many weddings in the last few years and most of the time the food is just ok. We are so happy that our food tasted just as good as on the day of the tasting. Working with you was honestly so great and I cannot thank you enough!!
This is not your typical wedding food... it's not even your typical restaurant food. This was some of the best food that our guests had ever had! Starting with the tastings, we left stuffed and loved each dish more than the next. They even custom created a clam chowder for our soup course to honor my Connecticut roots! The day of the wedding, not a single person went hungry. There was more food than we knew what to do with! We were a bit hesitant about a buffet since they are a hit or miss at weddings. We were assured that we would not be disappointed, and disappointment was the furthest thing from our minds! Everything was cooked perfectly, was hot, and each table was able to eat at the same time. The buffet moved quickly and efficiently and there was plenty of food for everyone to get there fill on every item, with even some people going back for seconds! Saz's also provided top notch service. Even though we chose buffet, they had personal wait staff to hand serve a few tables that seated the elderly guests! People to this day cannot stop talking about how amazing the food was and how there was something for everyone! One of the best decisions we made was choosing Saz's for our wedding.
We catered our Thanksgiving dinner from Saz's this year. We had moved into a small apartment and I wasn't sure about the logistics of coordinating the dinner in a limited space. I expected it to be good, but the dinner was amazing! I love to cook and my standards are high. We picked up the meal at noon and it was still hot when we sat down at 1:30 pm. The turkey was moist and delicious with a good assortment of white and dark meat. The mashed potatoes, stuffing and gravy were every bit as tasty as I would have made myself. The green beans were crunchy with a generous amount of toasted almonds. I always make my own cranberry orange relish and theirs was as good as mine. I would not have bothered with the sweet potatoes, but their recipe with maple syrup was a big hit. The salad of mixed greens with Apple, craisins, almonds, feta cheese and cranberry vinaigrette complimented the meal. We added Saz's scrumptious corn muffins along with the rolls and they were a favorite. Dinner catered from Saz's will become a new thanksgiving tradition. I was able to really enjoy my family and my meal with a minimum of prep or clean-up. Thank you Saz's!
I honestly can't say enough good things about our experience with Saz's on Saturday! The food was amazing and our guests were still raving about it the next day. I was so so impressed with the quality of service by the waitstaff; everyone was extremely polite and attentive! Both Dave's and my parents commented on how impressed they were with the entire staff as well, especially the ones who stayed towards the end and helped clean up. We all will definitely be recommending Saz's to anyone who wants a great caterer for their event! Please pass along to those who worked our wedding, they really made our night go flawlessly and went over and above our expectations and we are so appreciative for that!
I just wanted to thank you all for a terrific event [at South Second]. The food and service was spot on. All of the staff were extremely polite and helpful. [Saz's] did a dynamite job and made the night amazing. All of our guests were blown away by the venue.”
SO GOOD!!!! Saz's was amazing from start to finish, [they were] so prompt with response and really didn't miss a beat! We were looking for great food, at an affordable price that would wow our guests and we got it! Our meal was served family style and it just added a personal touch; the guests were interacting and helping themselves to as much or as little, without having to get out of their seats (vs a buffet). The apps were also a huge hit, wisconsin style is the way to go, cheese curds and sausage! You can't go wrong with Saz's!
This review is for the To-Go Thanksgiving offered by Saz's Catering: O.M.G. It was GREAT! The whole experience, from initial inquiry ([Saz's] was responsive and friendly), to payment (credit card over the phone to reserve and later pay for the meal), to pick-up (no real signage at the catering location, but we still found it just fine), to the food itself was AMAZING! All of the traditional offerings were done up *right*. No weird margarine or anything chemically tasting; just good, old-fashioned flavors. We've tried several to-go Thanksgiving meals around the area, and this one is by far the best quality and quantity of food for the best price (around $20/person for eight people). We're definitely doing this deal again next year! Thanks to Saz's for helping us focus on hanging out with our family!
Everything about our Oct. 22 wedding experience with South Second and Saz's was five-stars, exceeding our expectations!
[Their] attentiveness is unmatched. [They were] always quick to respond to my many inquiries, happy to provide suggestions, and generally just excited to make our wedding reception everything we hoped it could be. For example, we really wanted soft pretzels served as a late night snack (specifically heart-shaped Milwaukee Pretzel Co. pretzels). [Saz's] worked with them to make it happen, and they were an absolute hit with our guests! [Saz's] helped us customize our package to make it just what we wanted while staying within our budget.
South Second is a gem. I think every guest told me how cool the space was, and they're so right. The vibe was spot-on with our personalities and so perfect for our reception. Everything was clean and set-up just as we asked. The large garage doors were open during cocktail hour and then closed when it got dark... it was always a very comfortable temperature. The space was perfect for our ~160 head count.
Saz's catering was the cherry on top. We went with a buffet dinner and got the most comments on the Pepperjack Mac n' Cheese (a huuuuge crowd favorite) as well as the table served fall harvest salad. But really, everything was good and there was SO much food. The bartenders and service staff were professional and prompt... it couldn't have gone more smoothly. All in all, we HIGHLY recommend.
I wanted to first thank you for all of your help getting our event put together! As usual, you were a huge help, and I appreciate all of your time! Second, please thank the catering staff, your lead was so easy to work with, and did such an amazing job, as well as her assistant! Everyone raved about the food, so please thank your chef’s as well! Last but not least, by any stretch………………..your bartenders! So personable, and so on their game! Our event was a huge success, and it was all because of you, your staff and the chef’s! Please thank all of them for me!
The Saz’s staff did an amazing job for our wedding. Our guests continue to rave about the food and each one has a different favorite. We decided on food stations for our wedding so that we could offer different options and have people mingle. The carving station was great with several options for accoutrements to top the meat, each one of them better than the next. The made-to-order risotto station was fun, interactive and absolutely delicious. Several of our guests made two trips to try different toppings. As our wedding was on a Friday, Saz’s even accommodated our request to have a traditional fish fry station. The fish and fries stayed hot and crispy because the staff continuously replenished the station. This was truly food theater with a unique flare. Thank you to Saz’s for being such an important part our wedding. Next time we need a caterer, you will be the only ones we call.
The entire Saz's staff was great to work with. [They were] professional, flexible, and timely when responding to our questions and concerns. Our wedding reception was held at South Second and it was FANTASTIC! People are still commenting on how spectacular the venue was. The venue was so unique we decorated it minimally and it was still stunning the night of the wedding. The staff, food, and venue exceeded our expectations. I would recommend South Second and Saz's to anyone looking for a unique and fun venue.
[It was] another STELLAR Saz’s spread at Beyond the Blues. I’ve personally received many compliments, and while I didn’t get a good chance to sample all our fun choices, the ones I did taste were fantastic! I’ve also received compliments on your wait staff present that night – you guys are A1 all around!! Thank you for your flexibility with the parking situation at [Turner Hall] as well! Please let everyone know how pleased we were – again – with your food and service!! It’s so wonderful to “not have to worry” about quality and quantity and know our donor base will be treated so well!
We are truly so very happy with the way everything turned out for our recent wedding at South Second. We initially booked this venue just on a rendering of what it would look like once it was complete. We took a leap of faith and trusted the pictures they created of this venue and it turned out even more amazing than we were hoping, I cried at the open house!! [Saz's] wedding coordinator is so amazing and helped us every step of the way. We were amazed at how she had everything so organized throughout the process and had answers for all of our questions, she really knows weddings!! We love all the pictures we have of the space and all our guests were raving about not only the venue itself but the food too, it was soooo delicious, I only wish I could have eaten more, but then again I still needed to be in my dress all night!! I sooo wish we could do it all over again there ASAP, we had such a perfect wedding 🙂
THANK YOU!!! We had an amazing day and South Second was a huge part of that. We can't thank you and your staff enough for such a memorable night. Everyone was so personable and friendly. We received many compliments on the venue, the food and the staff! It was great meeting and working with you, you really helped us through the process. I have a feeling you will be very busy with your new venue 🙂
We hired Saz's Catering for our wedding in July, and boy it was the best decision I've ever made! The food was PHENOMENAL! After our tasting I knew I made the right choice, and knew everyone at our wedding would enjoy it... I was completely right. That night people couldn't stop ranting and raving on how amazing the food was. In fact, I'm STILL getting people telling me how great the food was and where they can find more of it!! (I wish everyday for a plate of BBQ beans and coleslaw from them!) Since my Husband and I live in Colorado and were planning our Milwaukee wedding from afar, [Saz's] was so great with helping us plan everything we needed. [They were] great with working around our schedule and made sure we were able to meet while I was in town. I couldn't be more happy with our choice of catering, they far exceeded our expectations!!! I would hire them again for any other catering needs with no hesitation.
I just wanted to let you know that you and the rest of the "crew" did an outstanding job at Matt & Staci's wedding. I received so many compliments on the food. I was told many times over that it was the, "best wedding food ever"; It was all just so fun, ribs, chicken, mac & cheese and on and on, mmmmmm! Guests also loved the Saz's Late Night Festival Station, those pulled pork sliders, oh my! Please thank the Chef for us, it was all fabulous! I have a standard request from my out of town nephew to bring him Saz's Vidalia Onion BBQ sauce whenever I come visit 🙂 Everything was just excellent, everyone there was friendly, prompt, and professional. It was just the best and everyone loved it!
It couldn't have gone better! [The Saz's] staff was so nice and so helpful, and the food was fantastic. Everyone raved about it. Even though we had rain, the tent kept us dry and there was the perfect amount of room for 3 tables of 8 and the bar set up. The manager that night was just fantastic in communicating everything to me and even being flexible on a few of the timeframes we had talked about before the event. There were some people who were a little late so we didn't want to start dinner until they got there, and [the team was] very good about agreeing to wait for them. Couldn't say enough about how everything looked. Thanks again for everything; it was class all the way and many that were there will be using [Saz's] in the future. They didn't realize that Saz's catered such gourmet food. Well Done!
I just wanted to drop a quick line to say thank you all for a job well done at our [Wisconsin State Fair] picnic this past Saturday. Our employees have been raving all day about how great the food was and how professional and nice your staff is. Everything went off without a hitch – even the last minute sour cream & chive fries! We’ll definitely consider doing this again with Saz’s!
My husband and I have a HUGE THANK YOU for everyone at Saz's who helped make our wedding possible!! Our wedding ceremony and reception were absolutely beautiful, and the catering services far surpassed our expectations! The food was incredible, and the room looked beautiful!! We're still getting compliments about the food and ambiance! Thank you Saz's Catering for being so professional and helpful throughout the planning process! It was the best day of our lives (so far), and a huge reason for that was working with you! 😀 We highly recommend Saz's to future brides and grooms-to-be!
I cannot begin to tell you how much Saz's completely exceeded my expectations. I'm STILL getting comments about how amazing the food was!!! Absolutely everyone had something to say about how good everything was! Thank you, thank you, thank you graciously for everything you and Saz's were able to do.
I don't know where to start.....everything was AMAZING! The food was perfectly prepared, presented and delicious! The Saz's serving staff was OUTSTANDING!! They went above and beyond to help us re-adjust and improvise when the rainstorms moved in 15 minutes before the party! They were ALL so attentive to every detail of our event! Everyone who attended our party raved about the food, but Greg & I were most impressed with the staff and how they went out of their way to make our party great despite the rain! It was a pleasure to work with you and we are certain that we will be using Saz's catering in the future for our special events and will highly recommend you folks to our friends for their events as well!
Everything went perfect on Saturday, outstanding job as always. The beer selection was a hit, imagine that!!!!!!!!! Food was awesome again as it always is. I swear all the nice people work at Saz’s. As hot as it was, I never saw or heard anyone complain from Saz’s; [They were] poised and professional at all times. I never have to worry when Saz’s is on site, which makes my job so much easier.
The food was delicious - our guests gave rave reviews of the braised short ribs. Service was above and beyond. From the chef to the servers, I couldn't be happier with our decision to hire Saz's!
Mike and I just wanted to extend our most honest thank-you to you and your team! Thank you so much for coming up to us and wishing us well and checking in with us at the wedding! That really meant a lot to both of us. The food was absolutely out of this world. Our guests are still raving about it. Thank you so much for making sure everything was timed so perfectly. Thank you to your staff for bringing Mike and I the food to our table (so I didn't spill on myself up there, Hahha). And thank you for treating us like we were part of your family for the night! You've helped to make our wedding experience so perfect and you did it all in the small time frame we had to offer!! We wish you all the best! Kristin + Mike
We can't thank you enough for everything on our wedding day. We can't tell you how many people said it was the best wedding they have ever been to. On top of it we have amazing photos that are just a teaser so we can't wait to see what is to come. Honestly there wasn't a second of the day I would change. Everyone raved about all of the food including desserts and said it was real food and not wedding food! I think that's the best compliment anyone could ask for. So thanks again....and now I wish we could do it all again!
Everything was absolutely wonderful and we were well taken care of. The entire evening could not have been more perfect! My in-laws were so pleased, and we could not stop talking about the delicious food and the attention to detail. My sincerest thanks to [the Saz's team].
Everything went great with the catering for my daughter’s graduation party this past weekend! [The Saz's team] did an awesome job of setting up, serving, clearing tables and cleaning up (all with a great attitude) - it made my night so much easier. Many guests commented on how tasty the food was and I will definitely recommend Saz’s catering to my friends for future events.
I've always heard that the most important thing at a wedding that everyone will remember is the food. Well, Saz's certainly delivered. Not only was [Saz's] willing to work with me on not one, not two, but about 8 menu and budgeting changes but the food and the staff on our wedding day were incredible. Plates were never empty but always being refilled with fantastic family-style options by the staff and they were incredibly friendly and accommodating all evening. They were even willing to keep serving my 4 year old nephew at different tables as he bounced around from his parents and two sets of grandparents at different tables. [They] put together an incredible menu that met our specifications and people will certainly be talking about the food for a long long time, including myself. My husband requested that we book Saz's because of his Packer fan-ship but I will forever recommend them for their professionalism, attention to detail and quality food.
Saz’s catered our wedding of 130 people at the Best Place at the Historic Pabst Brewery. We were looking for a caterer that could create a family-style vegetarian Italian meal and they were able to give us exactly what we were looking for. From the appetizers to the pastas and eggplant parmesan, the food was amazing, and many of our guests said it was some of the best food they have ever had at a wedding. The Saz's staff was very easy to work with and very flexible and accommodating in helping us make our wedding day perfect; we would definitely recommend them to others! Thanks Saz’s!
Ours was the first wedding at South Second, but you'd never have guessed it because the venue staff are such pros that everything went perfectly! From the beginning, working...on our contract and menu was fun and hassle-free. [Saz's] had great suggestions to make our timeline and day-of logistics run smoothly. The space at South Second is excellent -- well designed and beautifully decorated. There was plenty of room for our 150 guests (plenty of room for many more guests, too...and if you have fewer guests, there are ways to divide up the space to make it feel more intimate). My bridesmaids and I loved having the Bride's Room to get ready in. The venue itself is very photogenic...our photographer got tons of great shots both inside and out, and lots of nice Cream City brick walls in the alley behind South Second -- so you can get your formal and informal wedding party photos without having to go far away, while your guests enjoy cocktail hour! Our guests had plenty of praise: from features of the venue itself (spacious mezzanine, awesome garage doors opening out onto the patio space, we even heard compliments on the nice bathrooms!) to the amazing food from Saz's Catering and the friendly professionalism of all the staff working the event. We *loved* having our wedding at South Second!
We couldn't have been more thrilled with everything! I personally appreciated how responsive you were from the very first time I sent an inquiry about working with Saz's. From there, the "tasting" experience was phenomenal, your help in tweaking our menu was spot-on, we got rave reviews on the food, the service was fabulous and we will definitely have no hesitation working with Saz's again in the future. Our most sincere thanks to everyone involved in making this a memorable, smooth and successful event!
Everything was absolutely wonderful! We received so many compliments on the food and your staff. Many people commented on how great they were, even clearing plates from the tables. They were polite and professional. I have numerous requests for the potato salad recipe…..it was a hit! Thank you for all your assistance with our party. I will definitely recommend Saz’s to anyone who inquires. Thanks again to all your staff, here and at the catering center.
I just wanted to let you know how impressed I am with Saz’s catering. From my first conversation with you to service and clean-up from dinner, all of you were very helpful and accommodating. In terms of the food, everything was very fresh and beautifully prepared. I had a wonderful experience and will certainly consider using you again for future events.
Your team did it again! I do not have enough kind words to say about our experience yesterday. The team was on time as usual and were so friendly. They jumped right into the event and started preparing right away. They were so polite and flexible. Thank you to you and your team for making it so easy for me to plan these events. I have so much trust in Saz's and I can't even think about working with anyone else. Each time we work together our experience just gets better and better. [Our Guests] had so much to say about how awesome the food was. Amazing service and exceptional food yesterday!
I want to thank you and your staff for just an outstanding job catering yesterday for the MU graduation event here at 1451 Renaissance Place. Everything went so well and the MU faculty and their guests were so pleased with the quality and presentation of the meal, along with the efficient service of your wait staff. I want to say a special thanks to Guy, Ron and Jim. They are great team leaders on your staff and I am always glad to see them here. While I do not know many of the others, they too did a wonderful job. And, Mike, Brian and Neumann had the kitchen well organized and produced 444 plates in a very efficient manner. I hope you will be interested in doing this same event again next year. We may not even need to change the menu! If so, please hold the date.
Thanks again for your assistance planning this event.
Thank you! It was a great evening, the food was great, the service was great, the room was great... There were a lot of compliments, so thank you! It was a pleasure working with you on this, you made it very easy for me. And I too hope to work with you on future events. I know I'll spread the word around here so don't be surprised if you get a lot of requests from Rockwell... 🙂
Thank you again and I'm wishing you much success!
Andrew and I cannot thank you and your staff enough for the great service we received all evening on Saturday. It truly felt like we were getting white glove service. Your staff took care of us and most importantly our guests. The appetizers and dinner were both delicious and the presentation was beautiful. We received rave reviews from our guests on your food and service.
Everything was perfect! Michael was a pleasure and everyone raved about the food! The only complaint, “if it’s from Saz’s – where’s the BBQ?” … so – you know what I’ll be ordering next time!
Saz’s and MACC will celebrate their 40th [anniversary] together next year. Steve [Sazama] has been a great example of the goodness of our alma mater, Marquette [University] High [School], in giving to others and in excellence. We have always liked Saz’s going back to its earliest days. I have fond memories of lunches at [Saz’s State House Restaurant] with my brother Bill after his all too frequent hospital visits.
Thanks for teaming up with West Bend Mutual to help the MACC Fund give every child a fighting chance.
Thank you so much for everything Saturday! Everyone LOVED the food! From the appetizers, to the family style sit down to the gourmet dessert bar! It was absolutely perfect! We are very pleased with the outcome. Thank you, to you and your staff for doing yet again, such an amazing job.
[Our Holiday Party] was terrific, the food was fantastic. Your staff did an incredible job and everyone had a great time. Thank you so much.
Due to our communication error, the date was not booked when we thought it was. With just a few weeks notice, Saz's was able to cater our company picnic at a very busy time of the year for them. We are very grateful and will be Saz's customers for life!
Everyone and every person who serviced us at the tent was very helpful and all made sure any little thing we asked for was taken care of with no issue. Very friendly staff. The food was well presented and fresh and tasty. Beverages were plenty. Highly satisfied and have and will continue to recommend [Saz's Hospitality Village] for events.
In Milwaukee, Saz's is known for their delicious fried foods at festivals - I never would have expected the high quality, wonderful catered cuisine that we had for our wedding! Everything was amazing - starting with the event planner Michelle who is super detail oriented and organized to the great food and the friendly and professional staff. All of our guests could not stop raving about how delicious all of the food was! I could not have asked for a better experience than Saz's for our big day.
Ok, so you expect the food at a wedding to be good, probably not memorable. But, 3 months after my daughter's wedding, our guests are still raving about the food prepared by Saz's Catering! It was amazing! Not only were they a joy to work with (Michelle, you're the best), but they knew how to deliver! The wedding was in a tent on our fish farm in Bristol. We served family style, having to accommodate multiple vegetarians, & they also agreed to prepare our fish! ... Not to mention that their outdoor kitchen was also in a tent and they had to battle tornado warnings, wind, rain & mud. Can't thank them enough! So much so that daughter #2 is getting married in September & it was a no-brainer to sign them up again. You can't go wrong with Saz's!
We received rave reviews from our wedding guests about our food! Katie from Saz's was simply amazing to work with and helped us with every detail. The quality of the food was excellent and the servers were unbelievably prompt, pleasant and courteous! We HIGHLY recommend using Saz's for your wedding! Good luck with your wedding planning and place your trust for a beautiful wedding reception with Saz's!
I just wanted to send a sincere thank you to you and your team for helping us host a fantastic event last week in Milwaukee! I have heard from multiple guests how wonderful the food and staff were (especially Martha!). Planning an event out of town is quite nerve-wracking, but you made it easy for us to just show up and enjoy the evening!
We couldn't be happier with Saz's Catering and Michelle was fantastic! Even from the initial emails, phone calls, and consultation, the customer service was impeccable. The service could only be topped by the food, which was just amazing.
The linens, table setups, appetizers and dinners were unbelievable. We received so many compliments on the delicious food! We imagined that the food at the tasting would be a much higher quality than the food on the wedding day (because of higher quantities), but they matched up perfectly! The salmon, prime rib, chicken and vegetarian dishes were so delicious, and did not taste like typical wedding food. Michelle was very accommodating for guests with special dietary needs - peanut & gluten allergies. She put our minds at ease on the big day, and even checked in with us at the reception to make sure everything was going well.
We HIGHLY recommend Saz's Catering, and again, Michelle was an absolute joy to work with!
Our wedding was beyond amazing and thank you to Saz's for being a part to make that happen! We have heard multiple comments from our guests about how good the service was and how good the food was throughout the entire night. So thank you Saz's! You were great to work with and we will always recommend Saz's as an excellent wedding caterer. Loved working with Michelle since day 1 of the planning process. She made it stress free and everything was simply amazing!!
I wanted to let you know how happy we were with the food and service provided by Saz's for our picnic yesterday. The food was delicious and there was more than enough for everyone. The two people that handled our event were very professional and so nice. They went above and beyond my expectations. It was a real pleasure dealing with them. Also, the set up and food presentation was wonderful. Thank you again for your excellent service!
I wanted to take a moment to thank you and your team for a fabulous event last night. Everyone I encountered commented about how delicious the food was. I was so happy to hear people make comments about how they didn’t know that Saz’s did this level of catering – I assured them that you guys are much more than sour cream and chive fries (which I adore)! I’m glad we’re getting the word out to everyone about what you can offer! One physician even told us that this was the best food she had ever had at a physician event. Another compared it to physician events at another one of our other Wheaton facilities and said the other event paled in comparison.
The entire team was great, especially Matt – he is a gem! Everyone was pleasant and so accommodating. I truly enjoy working with Saz’s and am looking forward to working with your team again on our next event!
Thank you very much for the outstanding job done for our daughter's wedding reception in July . The food was delicious, the service was seamless and the organizational aspects were top-notch! Everything was done with quality in mind, which made dealing with [Saz's Catering] so delightful! We so appreciate your part in making Lynn and J.J.'s wedding day extra special!
...You have truly gone above and beyond the expectation I had of your role on our day. You saw the event as a whole and helped to create the grand vision we had for the day rather than just focusing on the food/catering aspect of things. Your attention to details is outstanding. When I saw you on Saturday I felt immediately relived and knew that the setup would go on just fine without me. Your thoughtfulness and kindness to help me get through the buffet line will never be forgotten. Oh and the food was amazing!! ... However, more than just the food experience, you truly brought the term 'hospitality' to life.
Our calls and time together really put us at ease throughout this [planning] process. We thank you for paying attention to every aesthetic detail, to rendering each plate as specified (when needed), and to your vast offerings and insights to plating and pairings... 🙂 We successfully pleased our branding team and satisfied all dietary concerns in a lovely and thoughtful manner. Well done! You and your team exude premium services and KINDNESS!! We just so appreciate your efforts. Thank you. Thank you...
I have to take more than a moment and thank you all for your overwhelming professionalism. This experience was a true joy... You should all be very proud to have delivered above and beyond client expectations. The experience over the past 2-3 months was simply wonderful. Everything from the management, service, attention to detail and especially the food and presentation was outstanding. Thank you, thank you so very much. I was a pleasure to work with each of you and your team and I would recommend your company to the first person that inquires. Please do keep in touch and who knows, maybe we will do it again.
This past weekend my family and I were guests of Maserati at Road America. I cannot compliment your staff enough for the great job they did this weekend. Zach, Diane, Jim and the entire staff did exceptional. You should be very proud of the job they did. Everyone was so accommodating as we had three children with us. One highlight for us is as we walked in Diane approached my wide and offered to get an espresso for her. Another highlight was when Zach overheard my wife ask for one of the ice cream bars from the day before. The station didn't have one but Zach found one and brought it over to our table, what a surprise! We've attended many events at Road America and your staff always does a great job! Keep up the great work!
There are a lot of great places to get food on the grounds but the combo to me it's a just a classic Milwaukee dish and a part of the quintessential Summerfest experience. Every year there is an article about the new food items at Summerfest. Usually the new items are gimmicks like "let's see what we can put on a stick or how can we incorporate more bacon." Those items are usually are gone the next year in favor of whatever the new food trend is. You know the combo will be here every single year and will taste exactly the same as the year before.
I was born and raised in Milwaukee. I am now 34 years old and, since I was 14, I have been going to Summerfest. The first thing I do when I go is get the combo platter. That is when my summer officially begins!! The combo platter and Summerfest go hand in hand for me. And Lakefront IPA of course.
For me the Saz's combo platter is almost like an institution. In a way I sort of just equate it with being outside in summer in Milwaukee. I've been eating them at festivals since I was a kid and to this day Saz's is still always my first stop at soon as I walk through the Summerfest gates.
“Thank you so much – everything was perfect AND delicious!”
“It was great working with our event manager and it’s always a pleasure to work with Saz’s. Everything looked and tasted wonderful. Your staff did a great job. Thank you!”
“Were very happy with the service we received from your staff and the food was great! We had a lot of good feedback from our guests.”
“Everything was awesome and we got so many compliments on the food- one of my bridesmaids thought she was actually in heaven while eating the cheese curds (lol). I really appreciate everything you guys did to help us and our family twice. Saz's rocks!”
“Thank you! You were wonderful to work with.”
“…everything was great. Perfect amounts. Delicious as always”
“… Saz’s did an awesome job for our party and all of our friends have been talking about the great food that was served. We were very happy with everyone who worked for Saz’s and were pleased that they really were into their job.”
“We can't thank you enough for being so awesome and professional and the perfect caterer for our wedding. You exceeded our expectations. There was a bit of stress dealing with The Hamilton, and to have Saz's be so awesome took my mind off of the other stuff and I can't say enough great things.
Many, many thanks.”
“It was a pleasure working with Saz’s. We have been getting tons of compliments on the food and menu. Many guests report, "best wedding food ever!" I would certainly recommend Saz's to any of our friends…Thanks for being there, in person. That was very comforting.”
