Good Caterer, Merrimack Valley or Southern NH

Looking for simple catering job, maybe even BBQ. Any opinions on Celebrations Distinctive Catering? Could be 200+ guests so I want to start with a minimal price point just in case this gets out of hand, grow the menu if I find the number is lower then expected.

    Friend of mine used Party Connections, I think they're in Methuen. The food and presentation was excellent.

      Yes, Party Connection is a great choice. Tasted them in action a few times, great stuff.
      Another one that comes to mind is Simply Elegant Catering out of Haverhill. I've been to a few good sized events they have catered too.

      I just left a birthday party catered by Lenzi's in Dracut. Mostly hor's douvres, but good food and good service. This was held at the Whistler House in Lowell - probably too small for 200+. Lenzi's, however has their own function hall on Rt 110 in Dracut.

      In the summer, how about Grillin on the River by Cobblestones behind the Tsongas Arena?
