Luc, Joanne and Kelly…it was very nice meeting you on Saturday and my husband and I would like to express how thankful we are we found you. The meal was not only delicious it was hot and served on time!!! From beginning to end the process was flawless…the set up fantastic…and the staff extremely professional! There wasn’t a flat tummy in the house with the abundance of food and all our guests couldn’t eat another bite if you paid them.

For the Morrisburg Old Home Week celebration in 2010, we were fortunate to have the services of Luc, aka The Roasting Man. He couldn’t have been more accommodating. No challenge or special request from our committee was denied. He was unfailingly cheerful and polite to all. The food – let’s not forget the food – was delicious! Perfectly cooked and served piping hot – even on the tour boat! Everyone raved, not only about the food, but also about Luc’s overall impression of professionalism, cleanliness and personality!

OSSTF District 26 (Ontario Secondary School Teachers Federation) held a Family Fun Day at the Morrisburg Waterfront Park on June 1, 2013. Our event attracted close to 200 and included members and their families.

All those present enjoyed a great day that included live entertainment and a boat cruise on Lake St. Lawrence. However, the highlight of the day turned out to be the dinner provide by ‘The Roasting Man’. Everyone that I spoke to during and after the event, without exception, had nothing but favourable comments about the great food and professional service provided by Luc and his staff.

Anyone interested in this type of service for a group activity should not hesitate to consider The Roasting Man. You will not be disappointed and you can be certain that your event will be a success

Luc and Joanne Joanette, from The Roasting Man, provide truly top notch service and we would recommend them for any occasion or event! We first met with Luc and Joanne back in August 2012, to discuss their services as an option for our wedding in June 2013. It didn’t take long to decide that they were the perfect fit for what we desired! We had heard many great reviews for The Roasting Man, and we can honestly say that all were very accurate regarding the service that we received.

From the first meeting, Luc and Joanne were incredibly accommodating, and willing to do whatever they could to ensure that our wedding meal was exactly what we desired. As we were planning our wedding from Scotland, we largely depended on e-mail communication, but that, as well, was excellent. Luc always replied to us within a day of our writing, without fail. Also, Luc and Joanne, as well one of their wonderful employees, Kelly, traveled to our parents’ farm (where the event was held) the week before the wedding, which was a great opportunity to go over a few last minute details. Everything that we discussed leading up to the wedding, including the final price, was accurate as to what we received the day of our event. Most importantly, the food was served with a bright, friendly smile from each member of staff, and the food was piping hot and DELICIOUS!!! The salads were fresh and crunchy, and the veggies were cooked perfectly.

Of course, the highlight was the spit roasted pork – it is PHENOMENAL! We asked Luc if he could BBQ sausages to have ‘sausage on a bun’ for our evening buffer, and those as well were incredibly tasty. All in all, we don’t have any criticisms of The Roasting Man – you’re sure to be impressed as well!!!

1000 Islands & Seaway Cruises recently operated a series of cruises over four days from Morrisburg, celebrating that Community’s 150th Anniversary.

In addition to Sightseeing Cruises, we operated daily Lunch and Dinner Cruises for which ‘The Roasting Man’ was hired to provide the catered meals. Much to our pleasure, the cruises proved to be very successful with most dining events selling out. This resulted in a very fast-paced environment, requiring rapid turn-around to set up and tear down the dining cruises. Luc, Joanne and their staff conducted themselves in a most professional manner and the cruises all went off without a hitch.

As this was our first experience working with Luc, I paid particular attention to the feedback from our Customers and I was extremely satisfied with the reports that came back. The food was always plentiful and of consistent excellent quality. Furthermore, Luc exhibited excellent cooperation in ensuring our needs were met, even with many last-minute changes in quantities. Keeping in mind that this was Luc’s first experience working on our boat, he adapted well to the limitations imposed upon him by this unique venue.

If you are considering hiring ‘the Roasting Man’ for your event, I am confident that you too will experience the same level of professionalism and quality from Luc and his staff that made our events so successful. We look forward to working again with ‘The Roasting Man’!

My name is Art Levert Jr. Include Program Coordinator, and I am writing this “Testimonial Letter” in to state that Luc Joanette proprietor of “The Roasting Man” spit roasting & catering services are a “top notch” service and come highly recommended.

My program held a special fund-raising event on Sept. 24th 2010 and I hired the services of Mr. Joanette. Our evening was a resounding success and much was due to the fantastic dinner that “The Roasting Man’s” crew put together that night. In short, they were a hit!

So let me finish by saying, that without a doubt, that whoever considers Mr. Joanette’s services will not be disappointed, but rather will be left quite impressed.

Luc and his staff are extremely professional and pleasant to work with. They were able to come up with a tasty menu to meet the needs of everyone attending our event, from vegan, to meat lovers. The quality of the food was fantastic, and there was enough for everyone to have seconds. Our lunch was served hot, on schedule, and also with a high level of professionalism and friendliness. We look forward to working with The Roasting Man again in the future!
