"Scott was a pleasure to have in class and has since helped immensely with many private events.  He is by far one of the most reliable and punctual professional bartenders in the business.  Scott is truly a GREAT bartender, not only does he mix amazing cocktails, but he'll entertain and make ya laugh as well.  If you need a fun and outgoing bartender look no further.  TWO THUMBS WAY UP!!!!"
  Trevor- Owner, Bartending Academy of Tacoma
 
  "We love having Scott at the Pioneer Park Pavilion.  He is always professional and interacts really well with the guests and staff.  If you are looking for a bartender for your upcoming event, Scott is an excellent choice. Thanks again, and I always tell people you would be my first call if I were looking for a bartender."
 Sarah- Events Manager, Pioneer Park Pavilion

"Awesome is the only word to describe our experience with Scotty and his staff. From the first phone call I knew I wanted to Scotty to be responsible for the bar at our wedding; he was confident, laid back yet professional, funny, and extremely knowledgeable. Additionally, he was up front about our needs for a larger wedding, helped us prepare our shopping list, and answered our many questions. On the day of he was prompt and was ready to help get the party going when guest arrived at the Pioneer Park Pavilion and kept the party going throughout the night with some creative shots which myself, my father-in-law, former teammates, and many others took part in. Cheers to job perfectly done!"

"What can I say Scott,  AWESOME JOB!!! Scott was on time, knew what he was doing and kept everyone at the party happy.  I didn’t hear one complaint, and only compliments. Thanks for helping us make our party at the Tacoma Sportman's Club a huge success."

"Hey Scott, thanks so much for all your hard work making our event on Saturday a success. We really enjoyed your energy, enthusiasm, and outfits! I hope we get the chance to work together again!"
 Addie- South Puget Sound Habitat for Humanity

"Scott and I communicated so much through email prior to my wedding (just this past weekend, Saturday 8/24/2013) that I feel as if I know him personally! He did such a professional job of answering my copious questions, making shopping lists for me, providing quantity estimates for liquor and ice, and seeing to details that a busy bride could easily miss. He sent Jeremy and Chris to work our event, and both guys were great. I had the opportunity to meet Jeremy ahead of time at another event 4 weeks prior but honestly it wasn't necessary. They show up ready to jump right in and don't require a lot of direction. They just go to the area you designate and set up. They were ready even before the wedding started so people milling around could enjoy a beverage before taking their seats. My bridal party and guests all thought they were so personable. The price is phenomenal, especially for the level of service they provide. Our venue requires you hire a professional bartender and I had never had one before, so I was apprehensive at first. But it was such a relief to have that completely taken of. And Scott is reassuring you every step of the way. I would definitely hire them again and would recommend them to anyone who needs a bartender for your event in the Puget Sound area. Even if you don't think you really need one, you'll be so glad you did! They were perfect and really helped our event run seamlessly and everything was wonderful! Thank you for ensuring our guests had a great time at our wedding, we just love hearing all the positive comments about how much everyone enjoyed themselves. From soup to nuts, from planning to clean up, Bartending by Mallard was excellent!"

"Scotty did a great job tending bar at the surprise party I threw for my husband last weekend. He is a true professional. . . and so much fun! He worked with me before the party to ensure we had everything necessary, always quick to respond to a phone call or email. Having him tend bar at the party allowed me to attend to the food and actually enjoy my guests! With his help, the party was a total success. We wouldn't hesitate to call on his excellent services again."
 Sue- Gig Harbor

 "Scott was the perfect fit for our Mom's surprise birthday at the Gig Harbor Yacht Club! He was prompt, friendly and very competent. Our 75 guests were happy thanks to Scott's help. I would recommend him for any size party."
 Julie- Gig Harbor

"Hi Scott, Thank you for a great night. The services of your team at the Tacoma Union Station were excellent and really made our wedding . Thanks for all that you did."
 Kevin & Rachel- Tacoma

"You and Frank were wonderful additions to our party. Our guests were delighted that you were there, and your friendly, professional attitudes were welcome indeed. I was so pleased with the job you did, and I shall certainly call on you again. I have, as well, already recommended you to friends. Thank you for the organized start and finish to the evening; more than anything else, that is what I counted upon, and you two came through with flying colors. I’ll definitely call you about our next 'fourteenth night' party."
 Francesca and Ted- Mercer Island

"I would like to say that mallard worked our wedding at the Slavonian Hall nearly six months ago and the experience was so gratifying that posting this review, even this far down the road, was absolutely necessary.  He was a gentleman and a professional.  He was on time, trustworthy from the get-go and a steal for what he charges.  I dare anyone to find such great service and such a value.  I will recommend Mallard to any and all I know looking for some help at a party.  Thanks, man!"
 John- Tacoma

"Scott made our charity event at the LeMay Museum just perfect. He has such a fun and open personality and everyone enjoyed talking with him. His help was invaluable when coming up with the perfect drinks and figuring how much of everything we would need! We look forward to getting to work with him again!!"
  Julie, Crystal & Pam- Susan G Komen Breast Cancer Walk

"Thank you for all of your hard work and great personality at the Luau that we hosted.  You were awesome and the drinks were great! I've attached a photo of you at your Tiki bar! It was so much fun. Thanks to you an your great service."
 Philip and Lonee- Tacoma

"Scott, you were amazing at our wedding (3/5/11) out at Steilacoom Town Hall, and your ability and willingness to accomodate us on such short notice was GREATLY appreciated.  I could not have asked for a better professional/personality at our event....you were great with our guests, your presentation was amazing, your drinks were so yummy, and you were so creative and great about working with me on a "menu", and all the while keeping a professional, by-the-book committment to guest control and liquor responsibility....I especially loved your collaboration with us for our signature drink :-)  Your price was amazing and unbeatable and you were so easy to work with and so hilarious as well, not to mention you were so great at keeping me sane and calm through the planning process with your great humor and your professional control and knowledge of the situation. Thank you for your hard work and relaxed and fun addition to our wedding reception....couldnt have asked for better!  We will DEFINITELY contact you again with ANY need for a bartender!"
 Anthony & Stacy- Tacoma

"Scott, the wedding was wonderful. Everything went very smoothly. It turned out to be everything we were hoping for. Dinah was exceptional! My list of things to do today included writing you an e-mail to thank you for sending her. She was fabulous I would recommend her over and over again. She was well organized. Handled the requests very well and had such a wonderful smile the whole time. You where spot on as far as the quantity and mix of wines. If you ever need a reference please do not hesitate to contact me.  Should I ever have need to hire bartending services again you will be the person I call. I will recommend you to anyone I hear who is planning an event of any kind."
Mark- Orting

"Mallard is great to work with as well as his associates. I highly recommend using them for any of your parties. Very affordable and professional through out. We have hired twice for parties of 150 + each time and they made it so easy for us - never had to worry about anything concerning the bar for the whole evening! Thank you to Scott for all that you have done to make our parties a success! Looking forward to hiring your company again for your services."
 Diana- Renton

"Scott was a great contributor to the success of our party. He is very personable and all the guests enjoyed his services. Scott is timely, organized, and gets a strong recommendation!"
