Marylyn & her staff helped me throw a successful cocktail party for about 10 people. Everything went smoothly from my initial phonecall with her, during which she helped plan my menu, to the wonderful food she provided. Marylyn arrived promptly at my home and went straight to work giving me directions for finishing some of the dishes and even added some decorative pieces to display on the platters of food. I received many compliments from my guests on the food and even had enough to provide them with doggie bags! Marylyn even followed up with an email and phone all to make sure everything went as planned. I would definitely recommend Juste Horsdoeuvres and would consider using them again

I’m not one to write reviews but I feel compelled to given my overwhelmingly positive experience with Rich. I hired Rich to bartend and serve/clean for a 16-person dinner party. He also assisted the chef prepare a 16-person dinner and a 30-person lunch the subsequent day. His drinks were exceptional and I was very impressed with his professionalism and punctuality. All of my guests were talking about how amazing the drinks were (yet low calories!). The chef also had extremely positive things to say about working with Rich. I will definitely be hiring Rich for my next event.

They catered our son's graduation party. The food was delicious and the attention to detail was exceptional. We loved Cameron's carved carrot birds! They personally served the desserts to all our guests and cleared used plates from the tables and also made sure our home was spotless when then left. We look forward to Cameron and Christine catering our younger son's graduation party in two years.

We had a wonderful experience with Anne and First Bite Catering. We held a wine tasting and spanish dinner party for 25 guests. Anne was extremely responsive and helpful during the planning process. She was open to handling many details over and above the food prep and presentation. That was very helpful. And the food was wonderful! My guests raved about it. She and her staff were punctual and professional on the night of the event and cleaned up everything so I could enjoy the party and guests. I highly recommend First Bite and I will definitely hire them again. Thanks Anne!

What can I say?! Scott was magnificent. He was helpful in planning the perfect seasonal menu, the food was exquisite, and he left my kitchen spotless. He has a sparkling personality, which actually added to the fun of the dinner party. Some of the ladies were interested in learning his recipes, and he let them jump in and help! Thank you for a wonderful evening, Scott!

Clayton and Kurt with Short Bus Catering catered our 2014 corporate holiday party, which was attended by not only employees but clients as well. It was held on a Saturday evening at the home of one of our firm's owners and the approximately 20 people in attendance commented on how delicious as well as beautifully presented the food was. We had the opportunity to work with Clayton and Kurt beforehand in putting together the menu we wanted, right down to having sugar cookies with our company logo printed on them in edible ink. A couple of our attendees had specific dietary challenges (nut allergies, gluten free, etc.) which Clayton was more than happy to accommodate. No chafing dishes and sterno cans here; the appetizers as well as main courses were made on premises in small batches and as they were consumed, more were made so that nothing sat around getting cold. Clayton's experience having worked for Top Chef judge Tom Colicchio at one of his restaurants was evident in his attention to detail and knowledge of how to create culinary delights. They also provided us with a bartender for the evening who kept everyone in good spirits. We would not hesitate to work with Short Bus Catering in the future, and highly recommend them for anyone's event.

They catered our house warming/halloween party for us. We had about 70 people give or take. The food was the best. Thete staff came in and setup about 45 min before guests arrived. As our guests walked through the door there wait staff was there to offer apps. We had a buffet, but they kept everything full. The owners cleaned everything up, washed everything and after we gave them a tip they were gone. Excellent service and food. We tried to hire them for all upcoming holidays, but are only offering drop off only, which we signed up for.

Joedian catered a luncheon for 50 senior and disabled citizens. She did a very nice job and I would recommend her for your catering needs. She is refining her skills and I believe she will be a 5 star before you know it.

Donovan's Reefe is the best restaurant on the shoreline. We had several large parties there and the food, drink and service is impeccable. A friendly staff and just a great place to eat or have a large gathering. Three great floors for parties or a quiet gathering. Don't pass Donovan's Reefe up. It's a great placr
