  1. #1 Eleven Courses Catering

    (44 reviews)

    Lucia S.

    Jim and his staff did an AMAZING job for our wedding reception. The service was excellent and all the guests only had rave reviews for the food. Here are some examples of how Jim and his team went above and beyond their hired duties. Even though we did not hire a bartender from them, they assisted with setting up the drink station and serving wine to the tables during dinner. They did a beautiful job setting the tables and even helped the DJ load her equipment in and out. They made sure that Thad and I had everything we could possibly need for the duration of the evening, we felt so pampered! Everyone was so gracious and flexible during the few hiccups that occurred (through no fault of their own of course). We are so pleased with everything they did for us and I highly recommend their services if you are in need of event catering. Thank you Jim from the bottom of our hearts for making our night such a special one! Sincerely, Lucia & Thad

  2. #2 Tortoise & Hare Events and Catering

    (25 reviews)

    Veda R.

    Brian and Katie were fabulous. I was planning a luncheon for faculty at my school. Based on our budget, Brian suggested a couple of options. I decided on the Baked potato/Salad Bar. It was delicious. the potatoes were huge, and the toppings (crisp bacon, cheese, sour cream, butter, broccoli, and chili) were fresh and substantial. The chili was so good that many of my colleagues just ate it with some amazing jalapeno cornbread. The salad bar had cucumbers, tomatoes, mushrooms, feta and parmesan cheese, sunflowers seeds, and two dressings. People raved about the produce and were especially pleased that they had three types of greens --- romaine, mixed greens, and spinach. The dessert trays were large and the cake pops were especially good. We could not have been happier with the food and the service. the food arrived in time and the set up was perfect. We will definitely utilize Tortoise & Hare again!!!

  3. #3 Top of the City Catering

    (27 reviews)

    april c.

    UMMMMM where the heck do I begin???? I cannot say or think of enough nice things to say about Maribel, Noel, and their team. The level of professionalism, sincerity, expertise, compassion, and love they have for not only what they do but for you the client is impeccable!!!! I literally am getting teary eyed. First I'm sure everyone cares about the food, it was AMAZING!! It was everything I requested and more. Now that I got that out of the way, let's talk about them as people and as a company; Maribel and Noel from day 1 were tremendously accommodating, adapting whenever there were changes being made up until the very last minute. They made our day truly the best day of our lives. I feel like they are family. Before I had to walk down the aisle I had a nervous breakdown and my father nor my step father could calm me down. Maribel however came over to me and patted my tears away with a towel and made me feel at ease. She began speaking to me in Spanish although I am not fluent I knew EXACTLY what she was saying, I FELT the love and compassion!!! I am overwhelmed with gratitude for her and her husband as well as their team. I truly can't say enough about them. I am actually going to miss hearing from them. They were on top of everything at every second! I just want to hug and squeeze them!!!! I would use them over and over again for any occasion. Truly a remarkable company but even more so remarkable people! I love you guys!!!!

  4. #4 Abs Cakes and Catering Services

    (50 reviews)

    Talia R.

    Throughout the entire wedding process, Alswell was a great communicator and was prompt with responses to our inquires as my now husband and I had moments where we needed a bit of help and advice. Although the timing was not perfect on our wedding day for the initial buffet setup, Alswell ended up pulling the event together and all of the guests loved the food; especially her signature gravy sauce. Many guests raved and stated that it was the best wedding food they've ever had. If my husband and I had to cater a future event, I would definitely reach out to Abs Cakes and Catering Services because the food is truly cooked with love, each dish is unique and the price is reasonable. That is a combination that cannot be beaten. Thank you, Abs Cakes and Catering for being an integral part of making our wedding day a success.

  5. #5 Catering By Kevin!

    (95 reviews)

    Sallie S.

    I am so thankful for Chef Kev! He was fabulous. He was very responsive. He took care of everything for us, decorations, serving ware, set up and clean up. I was able to relax and enjoy the surprise party for my mother. I had no worries. He created a great menu for 40 people. BBQ salmon bites, honey ginger broiled black tiger shrimp, red pepper jumbo lump crab salad on puff pastry cups, are just a few of the items he prepared along with great selection of beer and wine. Everything was delicious. Kevin was warm and friendly. He was very response and worked with me... when the guest of honor was hospitalized and we weren't sure if the party would take place. I could not of been more pleased Kevin was very cooperative and compassionate and communicated well during this difficult time. The quest of honor made it and it was a success! I highly recommend Chef Kev!

  7. #7 Wolfmoon Catering

    (23 reviews)

    Lin B.

    I wanted to thank Chef Brett for a job well done! Thank you for agreeing to do the job on such short notice. And even though we were rained out, you still made the best of it. The food was excellent! Everyone raved about the collard greens! The ribs were out of this world! Brett was early but sat in the truck until I came out and got him. Thinking back I wished he had just come in and set up as it took awhile and guest had started to arrive. So it was a little chaotic in the beginning. But they all seemed to just fit in with our family and friends, all staff were very nice and helpful. The only complaint that I have is he did not make enough cupcakes. The Birthday Girl never got one! I would definitely use Wolfmoon Catering again! Thank you Chef Brett and your team for a Job WELL DONE!

  9. #9 The Joy of Eating

    (9 reviews)

    Melinda H.

    We picked Andrew Holden's Joy of Eating to cater my daughter’s wedding since I wanted to support a young entrepreneur in his effort to grow his business. Also, my daughter is a real foodie and the food for her wedding had to be a key focal point. Andrew did not fail us. Using seasonal local produce and working with our requests, he created a bridal feast that was fresh, flavorful and special. He was very flexible, working continually with my daughter in selecting appropriate table linens and other necessary items to make the whole presentation perfect. Looking forward to the opening of his new restaurant! --Melinda H.

Abs Cakes and Catering Services

(50 reviews)

They say food is made more delicious when prepared with love. Alswell Blankson and the team at Abs Cakes and Catering Services know this well and are committed to ensuring your satisfaction.

I love to cook. Cooking is my passion, and I enjoy feeding people. For every event to be successful, enjoyable, and fun, there must be good food to feed the soul and the belly. When I am cooking, I make sure everything tastes good. I keep the people I am cooking for in mind to make sure I meet their needs and requirements. When they taste the food, they feel the love I have while cooking. Food comforts the soul, and that is why I love preparing it.

Abs Cakes and Catering Services provides catering for any occasion and budget. The team specializes in custom cakes and personalized menus.

I remember all of my projects on Thumbtack, but the one I really enjoyed and will never forget is a 60th birthday party for Mary that was held in Maryland. Mary was very friendly and easy to work with. I was able to find some red and white plates to match her colors, which made her very happy. When it was time to dance, she asked us to dance with her. The event went very well; everyone had fun and had enough food to take home. In the end, Mary gave us an extra gratuity for making her event a success.

Get a taste of meals prepared with the utmost care. Consider Abs Cakes and Catering Services today.
