What Our Clients Are Saying Testimonials
Good business, good owner, all the right stuff.
Jim went above and beyond what he was contracted to provide. He cared for my family and our event. Good business, good owner, all the right stuff.
I could not recommend Pro Bev enough!
They bartended and served the food at my wedding reception and they helped everything run so smoothly. Jim was extremely helpful every step of the way, from the planning and organizing to the day-of set up and running of operations. The staff was friendly, professional, and so very helpful. They went above and beyond what was expected of them. Highly recommend for any wedding or event!
I can’t say enough about the wonderful service we received from Jim at Professional Beverage.
He absolutely made our granddaughter’s wedding a success from beginning to end. He helped us plan and understand what we needed. He was always available to talk anytime we called. He brought in extra staff to help with the bar and serve at the buffet. Jim and the staff were amazing, so kind and friendly and helpful. Everything ran smoothly from beginning to end thanks to him. I highly recommend Professional Beverage.
Jim and his staff did an amazing job!
Even during the difficult time with COVID season he made all of our guests feel welcome and safe. Jim helped out with the ordering and made the process of having an outdoor wedding go seamlessly. I did not have to worry about a thing the day of the wedding. Thank you Jim for making my daughters wedding one of the best days of my life!!
Tended to every little detail and very professional.
We used Pro Beverage service for our company holiday party and they tended to every little detail! Very professional. Thanks for your service!
Jim was so helpful for my event.
I planned a holiday party for a not for profit to serve approximately 50 volunteers. I really struggled with planning a great event on a tight budget. Jim was great at making cost effective recommendations and even went above an beyond with helping make sure each aspect of the evening was cared for. He did so much more than tend bar. Some of the things that stuck out was that Jim always made sure that I had a full drink so while hosting I did not have to worry about going to the bar to get a refill, he made sure the food was aesthetically pleasing and refilled items that were getting low, he recommended money saving ideas that I did not think of, he gave me a check list of things that I needed to do so there was no confusion about who needed to do what, and among many other things he helped me set up and clean up the entire event not just the bar.
Thank-you Professional Beverage Service!!!
Pro Bev is wonderful to work with.
Jim is very professional and flexible and truly works hard to understand the scope of the client’s needs aims to give the client what he/she is looking for. The staff is organized and wants to know how they can be helpful. Their pricing is very fair. I highly recommend!
Jim was very helpful with the planning and execution of the Bars for our wedding.
He also notified us of an incoming storm so we were able to move the cocktail hour inside and avoid getting the guests wet. All night and before the wedding he was amazing and we definitely recommend them for any event!
Jim and his staff were great for my recent wedding.
They were super helpful and accommodating, providing a lot of useful info and adjusting our order the week of the event. The weather at our event changed from extremely hot to rain and then very nice, and Jim was awesome through it all, starting beverage service early and making sure everyone had what they needed. Highly recommend!
I could not have been more satisfied with Jim, his employees, his expertise, and Pro Beverage Service as a whole.
Jim was very professional and very kind when I met with him. He explained his experience with our location, which he has been a vendor at many times before, and made sure that I was 100% clear on all information involved. Although Jim himself wasn’t at my wedding to man the bar, he had two employees who were very kind, courteous, professional, and all around decent gentlemen. My wife and I had initially told Jim the reception would go until 11 PM, to which he quoted appropriately. After we had ultimately decided to change the reception end-time to 10 pm, and subsequently had forgotten to notify Jim, his employees offered to reduce the expected charge for their services to accurately reflect how long we actually utilized them for, claiming “it’s just the decent thing to do.” I could not have been more satisfied with Jim, his employees, his expertise, and Pro Beverage Service as a whole. Thank you so much, Jim!
This is a top notch service and I highly recommend Jim and his team.
He not only helped with great bar tending but went above and beyond helping with some of the preparations for the party. Everyone really liked him and thought he was personable. Thank you Jim for your part in helping us throw a great 50th party.
We would highly recommend hiring Jim and Professional Beverage Company for any event.
Jim and Professional Beverage Service staffed our LARGE wedding. They were very responsive to questions during the planning period and extremely organized on the day. We did not have to worry about any details or changes during the reception, Jim handled everything. We were able to enjoy our evening with family and friends knowing everything behind the scenes was under control. We would highly recommend hiring Jim and Professional Beverage Company for any event.
Jim and his staff were life savers for our party in our home.
I actually was able to enjoy a party I hosted for the first time and they took care of taking coats, serving food and bartending. Jim had anything that I forgot or ran out of in his truck and took all my worries away. The team is very friendly, accommodating and reasonably priced. I absolutely recommend them and won’t throw a party again without them.
Jim was our bartender, and to put it simply, he was fantastic!
We held a private work party at our home January 12th, 2019 as a thank you to the sales professionals that work from my husband. Jim was our bartender, and to put it simply, he was fantastic!
Jim e-mailed me a quote immediately following my request for a bartender for 6 hours the night of our event. He was responsive to all my pre-event questions and even scheduled a time prior to the event to stop over, view the space he would be working, and work out the logistics for the party.
The day of the party, Jim arrived an hour prior to his start time to help us set up and get acclimated to the setup. We had guests arrive earlier than our party start time and Jim didn’t hesitate to start serving despite not being on the clock yet.
Jim was hilarious and engaging! Our guests loved him. He was funny, respectful and even helped me keep the house clean when he had a break in the action.
I can’t say enough wonderful things, I would 100% use Professional Beverage Service again. They are VERY reasonably priced and made the experience for me completely stress free.
Thank you again, Jim! YOU ARE A ROCKSTAR! We hope to see you at our next event!
My Wife’s Celebration of Life
Jim and his staff did a Great job at My Wife’s Celebration.
From the very beginning when I meet Jim to when they left our event, every thing went just how I hoped and planned.
Thank you Jim!
We’ve worked with Jim and Pro Bev Service for 3 consecutive years to serve beverages at our corporate picnic. Jim and his staff are very professional, friendly, and easy to work with. I do not need to worry about anything as long as Pro Bev is there. I definitely recommend them, and have already requested them for our event next year.
Jim and his team made my husband’s 50th birthday party go so smoothly! He helped me choose the best items to pick up for the party which I was able to do pretty easily through a local company who delivered for us. The set up and support from him and his team allowed our guests to have a great time, and we cannot thank him enough for making this event one to remember! We would use ProBev Service again, for sure!
I cannot thank Jim and his team enough for the service they provided for our wedding this past Saturday.
From helping me while planning, giving me step by step to alleviate the stress and craziness, officiating our wedding and making sure our guests thirst was quenched throughout. I would recommend probev to every single person! All my guests LOVED Jim. What an experience!!! Thank you for everything.
Great Job! We had to plan our event rather quickly and Jim did an amazing job in meeting the demand of our event. We used Professional Beverage Service for a business Open House. Jim was very professional in the overall planning of the event as well as very personable the evening of the event. This was our first time needing such a service and Jim did a great job in educating us on the overall needs for the night (Wine, beer selection) so it would go off seamlessly. Jim met all of our requests. Overall a great experience and would Highly recommend!
We used for our wedding and they were beyond amazing, Jim is super down to earth and tries to save you money. Guests raved about the bartenders and staff as well. Couldn’t have been happier with their service, highly recommend!!
Jim was great…We had a small event, but everyone had a good time and he was very helpful. I definitely recommend Professional Beverage Service.
We just recently used Professional Beverage Service for my daughter’s wedding. We could not be happier! Jim committed to staying within our budget and worked with us to create a great experience. He was able to accommodate a last minute request for an additional bartender (which he had suggested early on, but we didn’t know how that would work within our budget until fairly close to the date). He and his staff were very professional and personable. I would definitely use them again.
Jim and his staff are wonderful. They are very knowledgeable, responsive and great to work with. I have used Professional Beverage Service for a company picnic and have received very quick responses and wonderful service. I would highly recommend this company.
Jim and his team are awesome! This is the 3rd year they have served at our company picnic and we’ve had nothing but great staff serving up professionalism and friendliness. Not only is everyone helpful during the event, but they make set up and take down a breeze as well. I recommend Pro Beverage to anyone planning an event!!
Jim, you struck me with your professionalism with your very first email, and I’m still a huge fan. It’s not often that you come across providers that offer that feeling of security like you do.
I wanted to let you know that everything was beautiful for my daughter’s wedding. Thank you so much for everything, we are so pleased with all your effort and everything you did to make the wedding such a success! I will highly recommend your services!

Decided at the last minute to hire a bartender and server for my outdoor wedding reception. It was a small(ish) outdoor reception in my backyard for about 60 guests. We had already eloped but wanted to celebrate with family and friends. I called Jim, half expecting him to tell me I was out of luck, but he did quite the opposite and sprung into action. He was able to find me two AMAZING individuals (Tammy and Fernando) to work my party. Jim explained all my options very carefully and I selected the option where I provide the liquor and he provides the staff and bar setup. Jim gave me a shopping list of how much liquor I needed to buy which was great because I would have totally screwed that up! The day of our reception came, and his staff arrived right on time. They were warm and friendly and jumped right in to start setting up the bar. It looked incredible! Unfortunately, about 5 minutes before the guests arrived, the sky opened up and dumped a flood on my beautifully decorated party space. I was devastated, but Tammy and Fernando didn’t skip a beat! They grabbed everything they could save and quickly moved the bar indoors. My outdoor dream reception may have been ruined by the weather, but thanks to the staff from Professional Beverage Service, we still had an amazing and memorable party indoors! I can’t thank you enough for going above and beyond for me in every way. Thank you!!!
Jim was more than helpful from start to finish and so easy to work with! Thank you so much!
Jim was awesome to work with and so accommodating through the planning process to check-in and make sure we were comfortable and ready for our big day! He saw the big picture and worked with our other vendors to put all of the pieces together. His bartenders were great on our big day and gave our guests a great experience! Thank you!
Danielle & Tom
Tom and I want to thank you so much for everything you did for our wedding throughout the planning process and then coordinating your staff for our wedding day. They did a wonderful job and our guests were so happy. The signature drink was such a huge hit so thank you for suggesting that!!
Working with all of our vendors was such a great process of our wedding planning and we were so thankful that you all worked so well together to begin with. Thank you for an amazing experience with your company and thank you to your staff for a great day!
Danielle & Tom
We originally booked Professional Beverage Service for bartending services at our wedding at the Byron Colby Barn. They came highly recommended by our caterer and the venue. After meeting with Jim, the owner, and talking with him about our wedding and bar needs, we felt very confident in his knowledge and skills. We were also looking for an officiant at this time and Jim informed us that he also officiates weddings. We decided to go ahead and book Professional Beverage Service as our bartenders and Jim as our officiant and we couldn’t be happier. Jim was very responsive to my e-mails and was able to answer all of our questions. He did an amazing job as our officiant, making our ceremony personal and unique. He then was awesome as our bartender and I heard nothing but compliments from our guests. I would highly recommend Professional Beverage Service based on our wonderful experience.
Jim was always very responsive to any requests prior to the event and the night of the event went as planned. Excellent service throughout.
Megan & Caitlin
Thank you so much for the wonderful evening. It was the most perfect night we could have ever imagined and you played a huge role in making it so incredible.
You were truly wonderful to work with. I especially appreciated your honesty throughout the planning process (even though you sometimes told me things I didn’t want to hear). Ultimately, your expertise helped us to create an amazing outdoor wedding that went very smoothly — despite the fact that it was pouring rain! I would recommend your services to anyone and everyone.
