Marshall Wedding: 09/01/2013
My wife and I got married at the Camden County Boathouse on Sept 1 2013. Kevin and his staff did an AMAZING job!!!! Our guest are still raving about the food and the staff!!!! Kevin was wonderful to work with during the entire process. He allowed us to create entrees that were not included on the entree list at no additional charge. He made the entire process less stressful by having a preferred list of bakers, DJ/Entertainment and alcohol vendors. Since my wife and I aren’t from New Jersey, this was extremely helpful to us.
Oh yeah, the food tasting was amazing, he really wants your input on the food that would be served. If your a foodie, this is awesome!!!! He will create dishes to your liking.
If you are looking for a caterer who enjoys the work he does and believes that your wedding day food is as important as the wedding day pictures. Please do yourself a favor and speak to McFadden’s.

Kevin McFadden and his staff did a wonderful job catering and running the show at my wedding. Almost a month later people are still commenting on how good his food was. Kevin has his own facility on the lake in Gibbsboro, NJ, but is also on the preferred list at the Camden County Boat House at Cooper River Park. His facility is nice and spacious but the boathouse just blew us away. His prices are extremely reasonable and you get a lot for the money.
He has tastings once a month so you can try his food before you even book him. He has a suggested menu but he’s very flexible about customizing it. The cocktail hour spread was a large array of veggies, fruits, cheeses, crackers, and antipasta, plus many served hot items. The portions were large and well put together, plus the cake was included if you use one of his bakers (he gave me a discount since i used a different baker).
He includes over 20 colors of linens and a full bar set up. John the Bartender was essential in planning our liquor order with canal’s (we were able to return unopened bottles). The bartenders were great and made sure everyone “had a good time.”
When my guests arrived at the boathouse almost an hour before cocktail hour Kevin didn’t even hesitate about opening the doors early and serving them. His staff is wonderful and helped carry down every last box to the cars at the end of the night.
During the planning process Kevin met with us at least 6 times going over all the details and tasting food. He arranged for special consideration at the boat house for us to get in early on friday to drop off stuff and set the room up. He is super attentive and his wife is the travel agent that help us book our awesome honeymoon (see: Lisa McFadden Travel Escapes). There is no way my wedding would have been as successful as it was with out him!

Kevin, the owner, is incredibly flexible and willing to work with you on EVERYTHING to make the day what you want it to be (and what you want it to cost). The food was fantastic. You never know what you’ll get with a buffet, but so many people complimented us on the food that was served. And we loved the setting. The fact that you’re on a pretty lake with the ceremony site right next to the reception building/tent is PERFECT.
Our guests loved not having to drive between locations — or wait forever to eat (and drink!). The price was totally right — we could afford a Saturday night wedding (buying your own alcohol saves tons — and they’ll buy back the extra) and it was a great party. We still get compliments on it a year later. I highly recommend the location — just make sure you stay on top of Kevin about details 🙂 He’s fabulous but seems to have a lot going on (and moves at 100 miles an hour!). This place it totally worth a look!

Lakeside Manor did an amazing job for our wedding in so many ways. They were patient when it rained and made sure our ceremony still took place outside when it stopped and wiped down all the chairs. The food was great, set up was great. I got great reviews from all family and friends.
