    John was great to deal with and Nicole and Debbie did a fabulous job taking care of guests. They arrived when they said they would be here, took complete charge of the kitchen and set up the bar. The food was delicious--a great party!

    Everyone with A Catered Affair was so easy to work with. They were on top of things and I couldn't be more pleased with the food, the presentation and the staff who served it. I know for a fact they received several hugs as they were just wonderful, sweet people. They promised me a great buffet and they more than delivered. I highly recommend them!!!

    Chuck was amazing! He was extremely responsive and conscientious of my budget and limited time frame. He worked with me to create a menu that fit exactly what we needed for my company's event. Chuck always responded quickly and professionally to my calls and emails. A Catered Affair also provided a server and bartender for our event, who were both great! I would definitely work with Chuck and A Catered Affair again for a future catering need! 5/5 starts!!

    The food was amazing! We chose the simple cold cuts package and the sides were way better than expected. The caterer showed up a little early, and our reception was running late, but he had absolutely no problems waiting until we were set up and ready for the food. He set it up very efficiently and correctly. We will definitely hire them again if we ever need a caterer again!

    Searching for a caterer was somewhat overwhelming until I found this professional. The difference for me was the personal outreach and guidance from Chuck. He combined professionalism and personal focus to allay all my concerns, and made me feel relaxed and confident all would go well! IT WAS SPECTACULAR! The food was exceptional and plentiful, the service attentive and punctual, and our guests gave wonderful reviews. We wholeheartedly recommend this caterer; they will make any occasion even better! Thanks, Chuck and Company😊

    I had a phenomenal experience with A Catered Affair for my wedding reception. It was very easy to coordinate with the staff beforehand, so I didn't need to tend to anything on the wedding day. They had everything set up at the hall exactly as needed and it looked very professional. The staff did an amazing job of tending to the buffet and cleaning, and all with a smile. The food was delicious, and I got so many compliments about the great food and great service. I would recommend A Catered Affair for any event - I am incredibly pleased with my decision to have them cater my wedding!

    Catering Service Done Right!
    Our event has not taken place yet. However, I must say working with Chuck was an extreme pleasure. He got back to me in record time and was very courteous, very professional, & great to work with. We had all the details worked out in a matter of 3-4 emails. He was very gracious with a couple of minor changes on my end. I would HIGHLY recommend Chuck Webster with'A Catered Affair' for any & all of your catering needs. I have no doubts the food itself will be as great as the service.

    LIFESAVER(S) !!
    I was in a real jam for our daughter's Bridal Shower. Because we had sold our home and I was so busy with packing and moving, and then unpacking, I let the time slip-up on me to get the food ordered and prepared for the Shower ! It was Chuck, at A CATERED AFFAIR, and his wonderful associates, who said they could make this happen for me, even with the short notice as the 2 weeks I gave them ! (My words, NOT his). THIS IS AN AMAZING COMPANY AND GROUP OF WONDERFUL, CARING PROFESSIONALS !! They are Extremely Professional, kind and frankly, my LIFESAVERS ! I tried several other catering companies. One did not answer, 2 were booked, and acted as if I had created a major and profound injury, but Chuck said, "We can help you !" And I know they were, and are, as busy as any other catering business at this time of year: So, my profound thanks for their willingness to help me out of a very tough situation !

    Stay away!!!!
    While the event experience was very good, they double-charged us for the balance due. I contacted Chuck immediately about it and had to follow up several more times. Each time, he said he would gladly refund me. However, it's been over a month since the event and we have NOT yet received the promised refund. I'm not sure if I will ever receive it. I would steer clear of these people if I were you!
    Chuck W. Jan 11, 2017

    Starr, We do apologize to you. The certified funds will be dropped off to you tomorrow at your business location by 10 am. I hope you will adjust your review accordingly once the check is received. Just to be clear, we did not double charge you. You wanted until the day or two before to pay for your event in full, and after repeated phone calls and emails from my office asking about payment from you, you finally told us that we could come pick up a check. We sent someone to pick up the check, obviously you would not have given us the check had you already been charged by credit card from us, at least I would not think so. Then at some point, you went on line and paid thru a secure pay pal link that we had previously sent to you, after which your check had already been deposited, which then made you overpaid. We did not double charge you, you simply paid twice. Once we realized this (it was first brought to my attention by you), we made sure that the check you gave us did clear (which of course it did) and that the card transaction had cleared (again you ran this transaction thru a link, we did not have your credit card info to do so) we agreed to return your money. We asked how you wanted to be refunded, by check or by card, and today we found that you would like to be refunded by check, (we just found out that you prefer by check at around 3:15 pm or so today) so tomorrow by 10:00 am you will have a certified check from us. Again, I hope you will update your review accordingly tomorrow morning once you have received your certified funds. We enjoyed working with you on your event, and enjoyed your guests. We would welcome the opportunity of working with you again. Your original review of us was very positive and we hope that we can be on those same terms again. Thank you so very much.

    Many many thanks to A Catered Affair!
    We were very happy with the service provided by A Catered Affair! They were on time, set up as we had discussed ahead of time, and cleaned up well after themselves. The server who passed hors d'oeuvres was friendly and worked well with our group. Our guests had many compliments for the excellent quality and variety of the food. Thank you so much for helping to make our corporate event a huge success!

    Pharma Reps.....use this company for your lunch and learns/dinners!!!
    A Catered Affair did a wonderful job catering my pharmaceutical event in Indianapolis. They had no access to a kitchen and the food was perfect......even after the 2.5hour drive from Cincinnati. They set everything up for me and I did not have to do a thing. Everything was supplied (plates, plastic ware, drinks, ice, cups, warming dishes, etc). Made my life so easy!!!

    TOP NOTCH SERVICE and DELICIOUS FOOD!
    From the very prompt responses from Chuck and John to ALL my questions and such when I was first thinking about booking them for our catering job for my office, to the food and the service we received, everything was TOP NOTCH!!! Honestly, Chuck and the quick and thorough customer service is why we decided to go with A Catered Affair for our office Christmas lunch. Jeremy, who delivered, served and cleaned up at our event was WONDERFUL and the food was TRULY delicious!! The ONLY comment made in any negative light was that the green beans and the carrots could have been cooked longer - they were a little too "crunchy" for most folks' liking. The meat however, turkey and the ham was literally the BEST we'd all had - everyone RAVED about it and the other side dishes (and we got ALOT of side dishes) were totally YUMMY! Everyone was extremely happy and FULL! We had a ton left over as well and we enjoyed it again today! I would recommend A Catered Affair to anyone and we WILL be using them for ALL our catering needs and have shared about them to our entire company here at Cox Media in Dayton, OH.

    A Catered Affair is the best!
    Chuck and his staff at A Catered Affair are simply the best! Great prices, beautiful presentation. Their menu is vast, and they are able to accommodate dietary restrictions as well. I have used their services over the years for small and large cocktail parties, charity dinners, my family Christmas Eve party, my niece's bat mitzvah, open houses, business lunches, retirement party, and more. I even chose my venue for my wedding because I was able to use A Catered Affair there! I had seen some hors d'oeuvres in a wedding magazine, and they were able to duplicate them perfectly for my wedding reception. And their prices are so reasonable!
