    Catering Testimonials

Please read the following testimonials from people who have had amazing experiences working with our NJ catering department and had events that are still being talked about by friends and family.

We HIGHLY recommend choosing Jumping Brook as your wedding venue! We had our wedding reception there three weeks ago and it was absolutely flawless. It is very affordable and the menu choices and additions are infinite! They are so many specialty stations and options to choose from at great prices! The guests are still raving about the food! The room itself is very spacious - we had 225 guests and it was very comfortable. I went into other venues that claimed to fit 225 and crossed them off immediately as soon as we saw how beautiful and spacious Jumping Brook is. We worked with Kassie in the months leading up to the wedding, who is the most helpful and sweet person and always answered emails so quickly. Megan, the Maitre' D, was extremely helpful the week of and night of the wedding. The week of, we brought all of our decorations and things of the like to the venue and she set it all up so beautifully. The night of, she literally stood next to me and held my plate for me so I could eat during the cocktail hour while holding a drink! Talk about service! She always made sure we had everything we needed all night. It was a very hot day and I wasn't feeling great after taking pictures outside at one point so she brought me an ice pop to help cool me down :) The rest of the staff was also fantastic - polite, efficient and very professional. We had our after party there as well and the guests loved that as well! It was super convenient to have the after party right at the venue and their after party package is awesome! Overall, we were SO glad we chose Jumping Brook and could not have been happier with how the night went. Thank you, Jumping Brook!

The Jumping Brook Country Club was the perfect setting for our wedding on 8/19/16. Kassie, the Catering Sales Manager was attentive and always available from the very first time we visited the venue through the day of the wedding more than a year and half later. She made the planning stress free and even provided suggestions. Our maitre'd Megan accommodated any request we had and made sure everything was perfect from the rehearsal the day before through the end of the wedding day. our waitress Carmen was attentive and always made sure we had something to eat and drink. Our guests said the bartenders were fun and were even singing and dancing as the night went on! We had an outdoor ceremony and the setting was beautiful. Highly recommend doing the after party in the onsite night club where you get finger foods and beer/wine bar through 1 am. Thank you to everyone at Jumping Brook for an unforgettable wedding day!!!

Dear Ron -

This is Michelle, the bride at the Jumping Brook, last Sunday May 29. I am writing to tell you that my family, husband, and I were absolutely thrilled with our experience at the Jumping Brook. I learned that you are Kassie and Megan’s boss, so I just wanted to tell you how great they were to work with.

From day 1, Kassie was fantastic to work with. She responded quickly to our requests, provided us with all the information we needed, and planned an absolutely fabulous event. She got everything 100% correct - the colors, setting, ceremony setup, menus, cake, and special items were all done exactly right. Her positive energy made the wedding easy and fun to plan.

Megan was our Maitre D. She was absolutely wonderful. She set our tables and the ceremony perfectly. She was very attentive to me and my husband - I felt like a princess. She ran the party completely smoothly. My family and I didn’t worry about a thing the whole night. It really could not have been better.

Our great experience is in large part because of the professionalism and positive energy of Kassie and Megan. Once things settle down a bit, I will put all of this on a review on Wedding Wire.



Good Morning Kassie,

I wanted to thank you all for making our company party a success! I have been receiving rave reviews from all of our staff, with most saying that it was their favorite venue ever! Which I agree with them, the setup of the rooms were perfect, the food was delicious and your bartenders kept up with our demands, and with this crew that can be a challenge. We appreciated everyone’s efforts & hope we are welcome back next year!

Please pass our thanks on to everyone, especially Chef D, the food was spot on & they loved the fajita station!

Warm regards,


Megan (and the JBCC staff),

Thank you so much for being so accommodating and helpful at our reception. So many people have told us that ours was one of the best weedings/receptions they had been to ever. Thank you for playing such a key role in making our reception such a huge success!

Jim & Joanne -2015


This thank you is long overdue! Mike and I cannot thank you enough for creating a wedding for us that far exceeds our expectations. I could not have dreamt a more beauftiful wedding. Words truly cannot express how happy we were with your services. All of our family and friends are still talking about how much fun they had! Thank you Ron, you truly are the best at what you do!

Kylie & Mike -2015

Hi Ron,
The wedding was so beautiful! I'm so glad we had the reception at the Jumping Brook. The pictures we took there came out amazing. The decorations were beautiful. Our guests really enjoyed themselves! Everyone raved about the food and the service. The atmosphere was perfect. It's funny because although my family had just been at the JBCC the week before for thanksgiving, it felt like we were at a totally different place for the wedding!

Thanks so much for everything.


We celebrated my daughter Amanda’s wedding on January 17th at Jumping Brook. I would like to take this opportunity to compliment and thank you and your wonderful staff for an unforgettable event. The professionalism and friendliness exhibited by the whole staff was exemplary and indeed you should be proud of everyone. I can’t tell you how many of our numerous guests expressed to us how much they enjoyed themselves. I would especially like to single out Megan Maher. She had everything under control from the rehearsal on Friday to locking up the place after the after party. She kept the entire event stress free for me and the entire wedding party. Give her a raise! I would not hesitate to hold another event with you or to recommend your facility without reservation. Thank you all for making Amanda and Tony’s special day entirely enjoyable and incident free!

The staff at JBCC worked with us to plan the wedding of our dreams. They were very flexible and accomodating. The food was delicious, the staff was welcoming and attentive, and the cost was more than reasonable. I would highly recommend this venue.

"I had my wedding at Jumping Brook Country Club this past weekend and it was perfect! The decorations, the food, the service-- everything was great! The banquet manager, Megan, is amazing at what she does. She was on top of me, my husband and our families all night to make sure we had everything we needed and that everything was to our liking. If you want a convenient location with affordable prices and great service, go see JBCC! I'm glad we picked them for our venue."

Hi Denise,
I just wanted to let you know what a great job your staff did at our prom last Friday. The food was delicious, the room looked great, and the service fantastic. Todd was so helpful and professional in every way. Since we are a school, it is very difficult for us to recognize such exemplary service with an additional gratuity, but I wanted you, and Todd, to know that he certainly would have received something extra if we could have done so.
I'll be in touch soon to book our Senior Dinner for next June.

Best regards,

We had our wedding at Jumping Brook on September 29, 2012. It was the most amazing experience of my life. The staff is unbelievable! Megan was with us the entire night making sure things were taken care of EXACTLY how we wanted it. She had Kevin one of her staff members (who was awesome too) cater to Ryan and I the entire night to make sure we had a drink in hand and didn't need anything. I'm telling you, people told me this was the best wedding they have ever been to! I heard so many guests talk about how friendly the staff was and accommodating to any needs. Not only that, but the food was INCREDIBLE! I had restaurant owners as guests, and they couldn't get over the quality and taste of the food. I told Ron and Megan exactly what we wanted, and they did not let us down!!! The entire experience was one of a kind, and I'd recommend this venue to any bride. Contact me if you want to hear more! I could go on and on!!! ~ Ashley Repka

Hi Ron!
I just wanted to say "Thank You!" Thank you for everything you've done to help plan and organize our Agency Kick off Meeting! It was perfect! I have received positive feedback from many of our guests. I have worked personally with you and Jumping Brook for a year and a half now, and whether I am planning a small event at Tillie & Willie's Grille or a larger event in the Club, everything is always perfect. Thank you for always providing great service!

Warm Regards,

Dear Ms. Kessler:
In April of 2011, my husband and I, along with our daughter and her fiancé, came to the Jumping Brook Country Club in search for a place to have our daughter's wedding. We were greeted by a friendly young woman who made us feel so comfortable and welcome. She introduced herself as Denise Passaretti and it was from that moment on we knew that we would more than likely want to look no further for a venue!

Denise proceeded to show us around and eventually led us back to her office where we discussed further details. The news kept getting better and better and our hopes higher and higher! We knew "this was the place"!

Throughout the whole year and a half of careful and diligent planning, Denise could not have been more accommodating, patient and kind whenever we needed to consult her. Denise's sense of confidence and heartwarming personality always made us feel as though we were the most important wedding in 2012!

The time flew by quickly and so came September 15th, 2012; the McBride/Vultaggio Wedding. And what a wedding it was! Our Matre D' Megan was phenomenal as was the entire wait staff. The Country Club looked so very beautiful. The dining room was exquisite! I had pointed out to both Denise and Megan how particular I was that the tables be set perfectly and they certainly were. The cocktail hour was so impressive and the food was outrageous. The lobby is so "homey" and elegant and beautifully decorated. Our guests are still raving about the whole night!

Katie is our only child and as her mother, I have always dreamed of the perfect wedding day for her. Well, my dreams came true and so much in part of because of all the efforts of Denise, Megan and the entire staff at Jumping Brook Country Club that night. I cannot begin to thank them enough! My husband I look forward to attending other affairs at the Jumping Brook since we will continue to "sing your praises" and highly recommend you to as many people as we can.

Again, thank you All for providing the best wedding reception for our daughter and son-in-law!

Our first visit to Jumping Brook Country Club was without an appointment in the winter of 2011 when searching for a wedding venue. Ron Podhirny, Catering Sales Manager, willingly fit us into his busy schedule during our unannounced visit. He not only walked us through the wedding experience at Jumping Brook during our initial visit, but also answered all of our questions and spent time exploring all of our options. Out of all our possible venues, my husband and I decided on Jumping Brook, due to their endearing attitude and personalized atmosphere. Ron Podhirny met with us several times throughout the wedding planning process, answering every question and attending to every detail. The Jumping Brook staff was very willing to work with us in terms of our personal requests. From the table settings with our personal photographs, to decorating the after-party room with our choice of decorations, the Jumping Brook staff accommodated our every wish. Jumping Brook provided us with recommendations for various vendors in the area, including several highly rated hotels and limousine companies. Jumping Brook also provided us with an incredible price per person, which even included beautiful rose centerpieces and a gorgeous wedding cake! Jumping Brook Country Club accommodated our personal preferences; for example, they allowed "extras" such as a photo booth that we requested to have during our reception. Throughout our special day, the staff at Jumping Brook was wonderful! They attended to my husband and me as individuals, checking in with us throughout the night to see if we needed anything to eat or drink. Our guests commented that the staff was attentive and friendly – they were thoroughly impressed with Jumping Brook! My husband and I held our after-party and morning-after breakfast at Jumping Brook, which was such a wonderful idea – it allowed our guests to have so much fun without having to worry about traveling. The location was perfect as well, as it is very close to several hotels and the Garden State Parkway, making it easy for out-of-town guests to travel to the venue and stay nearby. Overall, our experience at Jumping Brook Country Club was wonderful from beginning to end, and we would highly recommend any couple looking for a perfect wedding venue to choose Jumping Brook!


As Program VP for two industry organizations, over the past five years, I have booked numerous Corporate Holiday Parties, Dinner Business Meetings, and Golf Outings at Jumping Brook County Club. The well prepared and presented food, as well as the attention to service and details by the staff, have always been exceptional, making for a successful event each and every time. I have never been disappointed. Without any hesitation, I highly recommend JBCC.


As the Chapter Administrator for the Jersey Shore Association for Human Resources it was my job to find a venue to host our monthly breakfast meetings when we were bounced from our previous venue over five years ago. After talking to Ron Podhirny at Jumping Brook Country Club for less than five minutes I knew this would be our new venue. Ron and the staff at Jumping Brook have made us feel welcome from day one. Whether we have 60 meeting attendees with a weeks' notice or 120 on short notice Ron has always found a way to accommodate us. The hot breakfast buffet provided for our attendees is delicious and extensive. No one ever walks away hungry. Ron willingness to work with us to help keep costs down while still providing service keeps us coming back year after year. Out state council was so impressed with the food, facility and service when representatives attended one of our meetings that they are now looking into hosting one of their annual meetings at Jumping Brook CC. Looking forward to having Jumping Brook Country Club host our meetings for years to come.

Hi Ron,
We just wanted to say Thank You for all your help with Caroline's Sweet 16 party! We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the party so much. The food was good especially the London broil. I really appreciated the change in menu & it was delicious. Caroline was happy with the seating arrangement& the bridal suite too. Your help in everything was greatly appreciated! Have a nice day!

Thanks again,
Katherine, Bob & Caroline Dato

Dear Ron,
Lauran and I wanted to let you know how much we appreciate all the work you did to make our reception special. All of our family and friends have been raving about the food and service. Thank you for being so respectful of our wishes about food and entertainment.

The night could not have gone any better! A wedding night obviously can be very stressful for the " happy couple" but because of you and your amazing staff Lauran and I had a wonderful time.

I know we will never forget that night and how great everything was!!

Lauran and John

It really was the best day of my life on Saturday and I thank everyone there for what they did. Sean was easy to work with and the waiters were even fabulous. They always were checking in to see if we needed anything and after many hours of dancing they kept the water coming so that way great for me. Everyone on Saturday was great!

You were the best from day 1 to work with and I would recommend Jumping Brook to anyone who needs a place. Our flower girl who is Brian's niece ran over at one point during the reception and told me that she loved this place and was having her wedding there so many like 20years from now we will be back, ha ha.

I really do appreciate all that you all did so please pass this message along to all that worked with us on Saturday from the kitchen to all of you n sales that were getting the reception ready for us. I am going to miss my weekly emails to you!

I wish you all the best of luck there...they are REALLY lucky to have you so pass that along to your boss for me!

Thanks again...
Shanna and Brian

The day was a long time coming, and it went very very quickly. I want to thank you and your staff for a wonderful wedding! The food and the service were top notch! Our guests could not say enough about the great time they had. I would recommend Jumping Brook to anyone who wants a perfect day.

Hello Denise,
My wife and I just wanted to hank you again for the great job you did on Shanna and Brian's wedding. Everything was fantastic and we are still getting raves and compliments about what a great wedding it was. Many of the guests said it is the best wedding they have been to. The food was great, the service was great, the decor was great and the attention to details was just outstanding. Of course the bar was top shelf with quite a few thanks for the Glenlivet, you really topped my day off with that. Everyone that we dealt with at Jumping Brook really went out of their way to make it a special day and I know Shanna and Brian were just thrilled with the results. You took what can be a very high pressure day and turned it into a memorable and completely pain free experience. Please give our thanks and appreciation to everyone, and especially you, to your entire staff for a job well done.

My daughter was married and had her wedding reception at your club on June 11, 2011. I'l like to express my gratitude to the entire staff for making this most memorable occasion.
Ron Podhirny, Catering Sales Manager, was expremely professional and patient in guiding us through the various phases of the process. He was always willing to answer questions and provide direction. The success we experienced was directly due to his coorination of the various phases.

Sean, our Maitre' D, was the guiding hand during the reception dinner which was execptional. I heard only the highest praise regarding the event from our guests. All the food offered was excellent, from the cocktail hour through our day after breakfast. I have and will highly recommend the Juming Brook Country Club to everyone.
Ron and his staff deserve a very heartfelt "WELL DONE"!!!!!!

My family and I will never forget the wonderful time they helped provide my daughter and our guests.
