Chef Alex Grant

Food has been a passion of Chef Alex Grant since he started cooking with his dad at the age of five. Alex has studied food preparation throughout his life and has cooked professionally for over 20 years. He is a graduate of the prestigious Johnson and Wales University in Providence Rhode Island where he graduated with honors while also being a student athlete.

Alex feels privileged to have worked under some extraordinary Chefs, increasing his knowledge until the opportunity arose to pursue one of his true passions – teaching. Alex wrote the culinary arts curriculum for Machias High School and established the culinary arts program. After that, he went on to teach at the college level at Washington County Tech College in Calais.

At the age of 21, Alex took a small business loan and leased his first restaurant, later opening. The Seafarer’s Wife in Jonesport. He has also designed two independent restaurants, including the Clubhouse Bar and Grille in Rockport.

Alex’s wife Betsey runs Big Cat’s bartending services providing bartenders and servers for any occasion.

Big Cats Event Center, Catering and Restaurant are a dream come true for the Grants! They would love to make your dreams come true at your next event or special celebration.

  • Big Cat’s is simply outstanding!

    Alex, I just wanted to thank you for catering my daughter’s wedding at Camp Beech Cliff.  I knew when I had the food at the rehearsal dinner, I was going to be happy with my choice in food for the next day! I had a lot of compliments about the appetizer table, which I feel was unique, classy, and full of great food and decorative accents.

    I wanted the first impression of the food to be over the top. Mission accomplished!

    I would highly recommend your catering service in a heartbeat, as I have never had food this good at a function. It truly was phenomenal, and the price was extremely fair for the quality of the food!
