First of all, YOU ALL FREAKING ROCK. Steve and Tammy were a joy to work with. The minute we walked in the door to inquire about Matapeake, we knew that this was destined to be where we married and these were the people that would make our visions and culinary dreams come alive! And did they ever... Not only did they arrange for the weather to be a sunny 75 degree day with the waves crashing behind our bridal party as we became man and wife, but the food was perfect as well. Everything went off as according to schedule (which Steve also helped us with the timeline). As I write this, I am still feasting on the extra pig we had from the wedding that they allowed us to pick up the next day. I wouldn't have changed a thing. What an amazing crew from start to finish. Photos to follow. We kind of miss the phone calls and chats with you all.

We had a wonderful time. Thanks to you and your entire team for a fantastic event. Everyone raved about the quality (and quantity) of food. The service was excellent, courteous and efficient. Your bartenders were personable and took care of everyone throughout the evening. Overall we couldn't have been happier with the way the event turned out. Please extend a big thanks to your staff for helping make it a special and memorable day.
Please feel free to use us as a reference. I look forward to staying in touch, and perhaps we'll have the chance to work on another event again in the future.

I just wanted to thank you all for the fabulous BBQ catering/tent/table/chair rental etc. that we experienced. The food was outstanding and the delivery was on time. As you know, a wedding and rehearsal dinner can be stressful, but we didn't have to worry about anything withThe SmokeHouse Grill. The only thing that I wasn't sure about was whether the serving tables would be covered or not, and you took care of that. I didn't hear anything negative about the tent delivery or pick-up from the hosts (the Brighams) so I assume that everything went fine on that end as well. Smokehouse Grill was very professional in their dealings with us. It was nice to be able to go to the Open House in February because that is what swayed us.
Thanks for helping to make our rehearsal dinner worry-free!
I just wanted to let you know that the food was delicious on Friday. Everyone enjoyed and commented favorably on all of it - from the grilled meats, to the sides, to the cookies and brownies (which were a BIG HIT (moist, soft and chewy))!
Thanks again for helping to make our annual event one that our associates look forward to!
Will be in touch next year!
First ...THANK YOU...
Justin, Mike, Logan, and Eddie were great. Their professionalism was outstanding. They delivered on time and were all set and ready to go for the first golfers to show up. They took the time to speak to everyone that approached them to answer their questions and show off the pig! Food was great and plentiful.
We are looking at either May 13 or 14 for next year so I will definitely be calling you once the date is set. Again thank you for making a great day even better!
Take care and good luck at the Preakness!
Everything turned out great. People are calling, e-mailing, & texting saying that it was the best wedding they've ever been to!
Here are some sneak peek pics from Brittany (thank you!)
Also, here's a link to our photo-sharing website where people posted their own pictures. Not many people can say that they had a green telle tubbie at their wedding, but we can! billandmelissaholman.shutterfly.com
Steve and Tammy,
Just wanted to write a quick email to thank you and your staff for doing such an amazing job. I can not express how much I appreciate everything you all did and how amazing everything looked. The thing that we have been complimented on the most from the wedding was how delicious the food was. Saturday night was such a crazy night for me and I was all over the place and I am so incredibly sorry I was not able to thank you all individually for everything. If you ever have someone on the fence about using you all in the future please refer them to me and I will make sure they make the right decision. Everything was amazing and I can't thank you enough!
Steve and Tammy -
I am so sorry it has taken me three weeks to write this, but I cannot say thank you enough. My wedding was perfect- you guys made it better than anything we could ever imagine. You were professional and flexible throughout the entire planning process, and your staff, food, and service were immaculate on the wedding day. Tammy did a wonderful job of keeping everything moving and in line, and even called the bus company when there was a mixup. You guys were dependable, flexible, and amazing- I cannot say enough good things. Please feel free to use my contact information should you need a reference!
Thank you again for everything, and we will send you some pictures of the final event if you'd like them for your site once we receive them.

Steve and Tammy,
We just wanted to thank you so much for doing such a phenomenal job on our wedding day. From start to finish you were professional, pleasant and catered to all of our wishes. It was so much easier going the " ONE STOP SHOP " route with you guys. From our tent, tables, and ceremony set up to the specific food set up we wanted, you made it easy and stress-free. The day of the wedding we were so impressed with the way you and your staff came in and put everything in place like it was planned from the beginning. The whole process flowed effortlessly. Your entire staff was very professional and courteous to all of our guests. Everyone has commented several times on how great the food was We will not hesitate to suggest your company to anyone who is looking for catering, and we will never look any further ourselves.

Two words for Smokehouse Grill: Absolutely Perfect! My daughter scheduled her wedding for June 11, 2011. We live on the Chesapeake Bay and arranged through Tammy and Steve of Smokehouse Grill to cater and provide all services. The tent for 120 went up on June 9th and because of a severe storm, came down on June 10th. I called Tammy and advised that the tent had collapsed. Tammy's response "Don't worry we'll make it perfect". That they did! My daughter's wedding was PERFECT. The food was fantastic - prime rib and crab cakes. EVERY SINGLE guest was absolutely delighted. Everything was prepared fresh and on-site. Tammy and Steve think of, and take care of, every single detail. I am the mother of a very happy bride. Thank you Tammy and Steve. See you in four years when Daughter #2 graduates from college!
Steve, where do we begin....WOW! You guys were perfect on our special day. The setting was perfect and beautiful. The food was delicious and you guys fit perfectly into the mood and atmosphere we had wanted to set. The theme was perfect! Meredith and I would not have changed a thing. We just wanted to say thank you for an exemplary performance. Be certain we will share our experience with you and your staff to others.
Again thank you, thank you, thank you!
Keith and Meredith Baker
Hi, Steve ~ once again, the food was terrific and your staff couldn’t have been nicer‼ Again, this year, everyone had a wonderful time, thanks in large part to The Smokehouse Grill. Please pass along our thanks to the catering staff, they were attentive, friendly and most helpful to everyone.
First of all, I would like to compliment your staff that serviced our party on the 27th. We had just started eating when the rain came…your guys helped us move all of the food and drinks indoors while getting soaking wet. The food was great as well.
I just wanted to say thank you so much for catering our event on the 13th. The food was plentiful and fabulous. The residents truly enjoyed it. Your staff was also great and very professional. We will definitely be using your services again as well as recommending you to other Bozzuto communities.

Just wanted to drop you a note thanking you and your staff for another really good event.
The food was ready to go when the people arrived, was very good and plentiful. I had a number of people compliment the food and the service.
Special kudos go to the three staff members at the site. They did an outstanding job.
I hope we have other opportunities in the future to use your company.

From the moment I placed my web inquiry, I was impressed with the service and attention you gave to my small office lunch event. My Company is still raving about the wonderful indoor cookout. It was by far the best luncheon we have ever had. I am so impressed with your service from start to finish - everything from email follow up to delivery & setup to the high quality delicious food! I am so glad I found you guys!
OMG...MY GUESTS LOVED THE FOOD, I LOVED THE FOOD AND THE SERVICE
THANK YOU FOR PROVIDING MORE THAN ENOUGH FOOD
THE COMPETITION HAS NOTHING ON YOU GUYS
EXPECT ME TO CALL YOU NEXT YEAR :)
ONE OF MY GUEST IS LEAVING THE COMPETITION FOR YOU
THANK YOU THANK YOU
MY COOK OUT WAS A BIG HIT
I just wanted to drop you a quick note and thank you and all of your staff for doing a fantastic job at my retirement party. Your crew was professional, polite and right on the mark with the food and service. They arrived on time, set up and cooked a super spread totally independent of all the last minute details we were dealing with trying to get things ready for the start of the party. That aspect alone was a huge help and one that we really appreciated. The food was great and the guests were blown away! Your crew kept a close watch on all the food needs and their clean up and exit was conducted in a courteous and very smooth manner. They were truly in tune with the guests and their needs.
As I said, they are true professionals, that I would recommend to anyone looking to host a great party. Please pass our thanks on to everyone that helped to make this all come together. I want to thank you, in particular, for taking on the booking of our party. Your willingness to work with us on the date and the effortless planning of all the details made having this party a truly special event.

I really wanted to bring a casual, picnic feel to the wedding and nothing did that better than a tasty BBQ on-site. The Smokehouse Grill was endlessly patient with me while I ironed out the details of my guest list and menu. They were on-time, professional and make some damn fine BBQ. There was waaaayyyy more food than I paid for, so there was never a risk of running out provided awesome service!

Mr. and Mrs. Holden:
I wanted to extend our deepest gratitude for your help with our wedding. The food was fabulous and the place looked AMAZING! We think everybody had the best time of their lives. You guys handled so much. We'll be sure to recommend you to anybody we know who is getting hitched in the future. You'll be happy to know everybody loved everything.

Jason and I were so happy with everything that you, Steve, and your staff did for us that day. Everything went exactly as planned and I would not have changed a thing. I actually had a great time at my own wedding and not many brides are able to say that! Your attention to detail, as well as the comfort of our guests, was above and beyond what was expected. We received so many wonderful compliments on your service- many people appreciated the bartenders especially. They kept up and accommodated everyone, even my sister in law who asked for a mojito. The food was so great and many guests told me they had never had better food at a wedding. Thank you so much, I would highly recommend you and Steve to anyone. The special touches you added with the decor and your friendliness to our guests made it seem like we had our friends helping us, rather than a service. We truly appreciate everything you did and are still talking about it!
Thank you so much,
Shoby and Jason Lamb
I wanted to send you an e-mail saying how wonderful the evening of April 3rd went. The food was awesome! Everyone at the event was very happy with the amount of food and the quality. I was extremely happy with the staff you sent. The guys were very polite and kept the trays full for the guests. The experience shows how well everything was orchestrated. They arrived on time and took over and I was not worried about anything! I was a little nervous because we did not get a chance to do the taste testing. But that all went away when I saw the meats and sides prepared. I cannot wait to refer you to many other people. In addition, we are now thinking about doing the event over next year. Thank you again and please extend my thanks to the guys that were there on the 3rd, They really did an awesome job
Steve and Tammy Holden are amazing! Their whole team was fantastic. We used them to cater our rehearsal and wedding, including rentals and wedding planning. Tammy made our entire event happen, and Steve was available the entire year I planned the wedding. Their staff was professional, provided great service and there was never a line for the bar! The food was to die for, both nights and at such a great cost. We did a lot of comparison shopping and this was not only the best service for the price, but the best service I have experienced. I am still in contact with Steve and Tammy a month after my wedding- I feel I made two great friends in the process. What a relief to be a bride who could enjoy every moment, they made this a What a flawless wedding we had!

Dear Steve and staff,
We just had to write to tell you how much we appreciated your great service in catering our post rehearsal dinner in Cambridge MD. Being from South Carolina we had to arrange all of this by phone and Internet, so we really weren't sure just what we would be getting! We needn't have worried! Your staff arrived on time, they were efficient in their set up and so thorough! You remembered every little detail! The food was fabulous and everyone commented on how delicious it all was. The Generous portions were amazing. The BBQ was outstanding and coming from South Carolinians and Georgians that is a real compliment. You made our outdoor events really special time and we wanted to thank you.
