Our Story

Keane’s Wood-Fired Catering was founded in 2016 by husband and wife Padraic and Kaylyn Keane. Padraic grew up working in his parents village pub in Galway, Ireland and moved to the United States in 2015. Through some chance work opportunities he became fascinated with traditional southern barbecue and welded his first wood-fired smoker at the Steel Yard, in Providence. 


Keane’s held their first catered event at Whalers Brewing in South Kingstown in 2016 and have since continued to build a reputation for exceptional food and service. In 2023 Keane’s purchased and renovated a catering facility on Warwick Ave, which now serves as the main production kitchen, office and customer reception.

Now supported by a detail oriented kitchen team led by Chef Esteban Gonzalez and a customer focused sales and events team led by Kym Gardner, Keane’s offers an array of award-winning catering services as well as a Friday night BBQ take-out in Warwick R.I.


Keane’s provides a unique catering experience and some of the best barbecue in the region to clients all over Southern New England. In addition to a commitment to quality, the Keane’s team subscribes to a drama-free work ethos that translates into stress-free event planning for our clients and memorable experiences for their guests.

We look forward to helping you make your next event legendary.

Padraic and his team did a wonderful job for our lakeside celebration. All our guests commented on the delicious food, and I appreciated that Keane’s helped us develop a menu featuring both regular and vegetarian dishes.

“Most successful family BBQ ever and all thanks to Keane’s! Had their food for the first time at a catered event 6 months ago and couldn’t wait to have his brisket, cornbread, pickles (frankly everything they make) for our next family gathering. Padraic was extremely diligent with helping us make the day a super success and taught me how to cut the brisket. Can’t wait to hire Keane’s Wood Fired again!”

The Keane’s team is a dream! We were lucky to work with them for our food and bar for our June Wedding and everything was beyond delicious! Weeks later we are still getting texts from guests about “the best brisket they’ve ever tasted”. It was definitely the star of the show. From menu planning with Kym to day of service by the entire team, everything was absolutely perfect and stress free and we really couldn’t recommend them enough! Thank you Keanes!!!

Keane's is an amazing wedding caterer. From planning in advance with Kym to working with Mary, Amber, and Thea day-of, everyone on the team is a total pro and genuinely nice human. Keane’s served up a delicious and piping hot dinner despite working outside under a tent in the rain. Our guests raved about the food and bar drinks and how kind everyone was. Also want to note that although Keane’s appears to make beautiful BBQ’d meat, we were a vegetarian/pescatarian wedding—and they did an amazing job with the menu. So happy to have had Keane’s as part of our wedding day! Look forward to working with them again for other parties.
