Wait Staff in Birmingham, MI
The service that I received from Great Lakes Party Professionals was above and beyond greatness. This is my second time using GLPP for my events and definitely not the last. From the promptness and professionalism of the valet service to the alertness and attentiveness of the beautiful servers. Not to mention the cupcake/sushi model who blew the spectators away with a display that was very different and an eye catcher. Bear was very professional and on time with the employees from GLPP. I would refer GLPP to my friends and family and I look forward to using them in the future to take care of my party needs. Thank you. ELJ

We hired one server and one bartender for a wedding reception. They far exceeded my expectations. They were helpful, friendly, flexible, professional,funny, and sweet. I would recommend this service to anyone. I can't say enough good things about them.

The team was professional and friendly - Everyone commented on how engaging they were. No one wants to think they are working around robots and the bartender and two servers smiled and were conversant. We would highly recommend this group for party help in the future.

Absolutely awful. Do not hire them! The Great Lakes Party Professional bartenders were extremely unprofessional (and that's putting it nicely...). Not only did they arrive late and leave early, they didn't know how to tap the kegs or think to put ice on the kegs once my guests tapped it for them - so they were serving warm beer for the first couple of hours until the Groom noticed and told the bartenders to get the ice we provided. Although, they first put up an argument with the Groom and the Groom's mother. We had asked them in advance to know how to operate a jockey box to serve mead and they had no idea - and didn't think to look it up - so my wedding guests used their own tools from their cars to hook it up for them. Once it was hooked up, they still didn't know the difference between the mead from the jockey box and the white wine from the bottle, and on top of that, they only served one of our red wine options even when people specifically asked for the other (and were pouring the wine into pint glasses instead of the wine glasses - it was like they were trying to be the WORST bartenders in the history of bartending). At some point throughout the night, they ended up giving full bottles of wine to anyone asking for a glass - which is not how a bartender should act while working at a wedding. Overall, exceedingly unprofessional - save yourself the frustration and do NOT hire Great Lakes Party Professionals.

I was very happy with the bartender and waitress who worked our NYE party. Kay the bartender was very personable and didn't have any problem making the drinks that were requested. Andrea was the server and she was really sweet and very attentive to all the guests and went above and beyond clean up and being helpful with hosting while my husband and I enjoyed our party. My only complaint was that they were both late arriving. Bartender only by a few minutes and the server by almost 20 minutes. They both more than made up for that though with thw job they did and staying a little later than planned. I do understand that the weather and GPS address malfunctions played a factor I just didn't like having them not be there prior to guests arriving and having time to set up, etc. I felt rushed in giving them direction, showing them around because guests were already there. Even with that though we were pleased with our experience and would definitely go through GLPP again for our next party.
