Inglenook Catering did an awesome job!!! Ordered the Thanksgiving catering for pickup and it was hot and ready to eat. The turkey was moist and delicious and I loved the sweet potatoes. We will definitely be using them again in the future. I highly recommend them.

This was my first time hiring a caterer, and I was not disappointed. This was also my first time using Thumbtack. Had never even heard of it before googling “caterers near me”. Carol of Food with Flair did a wonderful job catering a family outdoor BBQ at my home for my dad’s 90th birthday. We had 25 people in attendance, and many commented on how good the food was. She was very responsive from the moment she and I were matched through Thumbtack, all the way through my event. She helped plan the meal, making suggestions on food items that were popular at other BBQs she had catered; arrived promptly the day of the event with much of the food prep completed and the remainder completed once she arrived; provided the warming trays, serving dishes, and serving utensils; grilled the meat (hamburgers and chicken) on my Weber grill; set up the serving table; had the meal ready in a timely fashion; put away leftovers for me; and left my kitchen clean. She also was able to work with dietary restrictions. She offered to provide paper goods and make arrangements for other supplies (e.g. canopy), which I declined. She brought two pineapple upside down cakes (my Dad’s favorite), and because we had neglected to discuss which of us would provide the candles, she decided to play it safe and brought a “9” & a “0” candle for one of the cakes. For the other cake she had a friend create a diecut that read “Happy 90th Birthday” in colors that coordinated with the cake. It was a nice, thoughtful surprise. While I had thought about asking whether she offered tastings, I didn’t due to the small size of my party; the short time frame between booking the party and the event itself; and her experience as an executive chef. I trusted that the food would be good, and it was. But I can’t share whether she offers tastings or not. My husband and I were very pleased with the service Carol provided and would definitely use her again.

Clarissa was great -- very responsive, flexible, and accommodating. In addition, the food -- for a baby shower brunch -- was excellent! We had mini frittatas, French toast, mini pancake stacks, fruit parfaits, mini bagels with lox and cream cheese, fruit skewers, and excellent croissant sausage sandwiches with aged cheddar! Clarissa also brought garnishes for Blood Marys and mimosas and was willing to provide coffee at the last moment when I realized we didn't have it! I'd highly recommend.

We live near Frato's and when our son was graduating, he wanted Frato's to cater it. We knew they have great pizza, but we never knew they have an even better catering team. I have a million questions and Michael answered every single one of them promptly and with detail! He helped me decide on a deluxe pita package, delicious Mac n Cheese and out of this world brownies when I was going to go the boring route of more traditional mostaccioli and beef. I'm glad he encouraged me to try something different. That wasn't the best part though. We learned that Frato's teaches culinary students how to run a restaurant (I'm not on facebook but I guess everyone knew about this but me). All the delivery drivers are actually culinary students. So they came in their professional chef coat and set everything up for us. I'm not used to such pleasant and professional delivery drivers. Amazing work and I wish every business was as detailed as Michael/Frato's. He told me he'd make it stress free and I'm a worrier, but it was as stress free as possible for me!

I've ordered from D'licious Treats many times and have yet to be disappointed. My Last few orders was a Hello Kitty Cookie Birthday Cake, my daughter was thrilled. It was the best cookie cake I've ever tasted. I also recently used the catering service for Thanksgiving and my order arrived on time. The owner came and made sure everything was set up right, she was very pleasant. The food stayed warm the entire time and the best part the food was awesome . For any Holiday I would reccomend the turkey breast with homemade gravy it was unbelievable. I will be back!!!

We used J's for a block party and he was great. Even though the weather didn't cooperate, he soldiered on and gave us an amazing meal. The tacos (steak, chicken and pork) were delicious!!! Everyone loved it. I would definitely recommend J's for any of your catering needs.
