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.

  • Political Function

    raspberriesWhen I needed to put on a "meet and greet" during the last election I contracted Big Cats for the event. I was not disappointed. Alex and the crew showed up to the event professionally dressed, set up quickly and efficiently, taking care in the beautiful home of my hosts.

    The menu options offered by Big Cats allowed me to customize the choices to fit the tastes of a wide variety of customers. The food was delicious! The guests thoroughly enjoyed the event and Big Cats made that happen.  Highly recommend them for your any catering event!
