Great staff!

By Steven C. on September 11, 2016

GLPP staff members always do a great job. We have used servers and bartenders for large house parties and they have always been punctual, pleasant, and great workers. It is easy to set up a request, get a quote, and get everything confirmed. We have used them for 5 years in a row and will continue to do so.

Excellent Service

By Jessica L. on June 24, 2014

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.

Vera was amazing! Our bar area was mostly set up when she arrived (right on time) and she offered to help in the kitchen. She was very pleasant to chat with and she was great with all our guests. Throughout the party she kept her eye on the garbage and took out as needed and even helped to refresh appetizers. Thanks for making our party great!

Amazing service

By Jon T. on November 20, 2016

This was the first time we have ever hired a server for a party. We didn't know what to expect. We were blown away with how excellent her service was. She was extremely attentive and all the guests truly enjoyed having her. At the same time she made the party flow so well and allowed us to concentrate on our guests. It was a fantastic service and one will be using more in the future.

Usually we love who you've sent. The bartender was super nice, but it did get a little crazy. At one point she asked one of the guests to get ice and took a break at the busiest point. Like I said, it did get a little crazy - but I wish she would of told us as the hosts to help instead. When I noticed she wasn't there I hopped back and started serving. The server (Katelyn) was great.

Excellent and thoughtful service

By Sydney on October 27, 2016

We hired a team of three servers for our wedding to help with bussing tables, pouring water/coffee, and moving food trays. What we received in service far surpassed what we expected. The servers were so courteous and sweet throughout the evening. They checked in on both me and my husband throughout the night, making sure we had drinks and making us a plate of appetizers since we were too busy to eat. When it was close to the end of their hired time and they had finished doing the tasks we had given them, they asked if there was anything else we needed help with. I felt like we were in great hands the entire evening and appreciated their positive attitudes and fun spirits (they even got in the photo booth!). I would not hesitate to hire this company again for an event. Highly recommended!

Great Bartender, Terrible Communication

Extremely Pleased!

By Kelly M. on February 29, 2016

We held a murder mystery party at our home and hired 2 servers (Sam and Tonia) to work the party. They did a fabulous job, were very professional and friendly with the guests, and best of all, they took charge and made sure my husband and I didn't have to worry about anything and we could just enjoy the party with the guests. They both went above and beyond to make it a special night. I would hire them again in a second! We were extremely pleased!!!

GLPP Excellent Service

By Eric L. J. on April 29, 2015

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

By Lisa S. on October 12, 2014

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.

Overall good experience...

By Janine D. on January 2, 2014

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.
