I couldn't have been more proud to tell my guests that Alexa and Samantha catered my wedding reception in June 2016! The reception was held outside at our home in Peoria, IL and they did all of the cooking/preparation on site. The display of items we selected were beautiful and delicious. My 300+ guests were blown away when they learned that the tuna was caught the day before in Hawaii. We had many guests ask for the caterers name and I would recommend them 100% for events of all kinds. Thanks again Alexa and Samantha - the event was unforgettable thanks to your talents!
We're so glad we found Lindsey! We decided less than two weeks before the event to have a birthday party with about 20 people and fortunately, Lindsey was available. We had never had a party catered before and Lindsey did not disappoint. She took care of all of the food (heavy appetizers, buffet style), pouring of wine, and cleanup so that we could enjoy the party with our guests. She even prevented our curious dog from getting near the birthday cake! Lindsey is professional, very easy to work with and provided everything we asked for. The only thing I would have done differently would be to wait at least an hour before serving the food. Guests were mostly interested in introductions and having a drink when they first arrived, so by the time they were ready to eat, some of the food, such as the meatballs, had become a bit cold. This was not Lindsey's fault, just something to remember for our next party. Overall, the food was very well prepared and presented. Lindsey was also helpful in planning the menu and providing suggestions.
Chef Julie is amazing. Her food is fantastic, her presentation is over the top and the value is unbeatable. The event was on two levels of our home (one for a cocktail party and one for dinner). We originally planned on 16 people. Julie offered professional suggestions as to how we could create the proper space needed for 16. The day before the event, the count went to 24. Julie handled that change with ease...including coming up with a new plan to create more space. Honestly, I can't say enough great things about our experience. We received far more than what was expected. Although our event was business casual, Chef Julie provided an experience equal to or better than any "black tie" event that I've attended Chef Julie is the only person we will be using for catered events in the future.
Catered my son's graduation party. The food was outstanding. Everyone there complimented the food and asked who the caterer was. We highly recommend. I am looking forward to visiting his food truck soon!
Chef Tia catered my husband's birthday party. She did a fantastic job. She was easy to work with, prompt, and the food was delicious. I would recommend Chef Tia to anyone, and I will use her again if the need arises.
Christine catered our outdoor summer wedding! She met with us several times before the event to ensure the menu had not only our favorite foods, but foods that all of our guests would enjoy! She engaged us in an ongoing discussion of various tastes and treats to make sure our food really stunned our guests! Day of event, she went above and beyond to deliver a beautiful and delicious presentation. I have also attended many parties after our wedding that Christine has catered and each event I get to taste new and wonderful concoctions of hers! I would recommend her for every event from a birthday party to wedding and beyond!
We always have Voyles Catering cater our company Christmas party. AMAZING food and they are such a pleasure to work with. The Mac-N-Cheese and Turkey...OMG! I cannot say enough good things about them. I've used them for private events as well and even though I'm a hard person to please, they nail it everytime!
Anthony catered and bartended a Bachelor Party for my husband and I. My husband and I are childhood best friends of the groom so this party had to be special! I'll put it this way thanks to Anthony's wonderful food (chicken nachos and beef sliders) and amazing drinks, our party will go down in history! He had an awesome personality and fit right in with the crowd! He was professional and took his craft seriously! I would recommend Anthony for any occasion!
I found Groove Foods Catering on Thumbtack and hired them for drop-off catering for a surprise birthday party. First, the food was EXCELLENT!! Everyone complimented how great the food was. Aaron was professional, nice, helpful (particularly in selecting an appropriate menu), responsive, and everything was as expected - only better, really! So glad I chose him, will use him again for other events, and am highly recommending him to friends.
Dinner was good, the caterer took care of everything as planned. We had way more food than was needed. Only two things were less than expected; due to the driving distance and access to our venue, the pork was a bit dry. I would have liked a different gravy for the pork as well. The roast beef was wonderful. Overall, I am very happy with this caterer. I would use their services again if the need arose.
Our adult birthday party (sit-down dinner) was a big success. And a great deal of the credit goes to Tracey. She was very easy to work with. I suggested an Italian buffet, specifically asking for a rigatoni dish and a fettuccine. She did them and they were delicious. Even though we had a buffet, she served our salads at our tables, as well as dessert. She cleared our dishes before serving the dessert, something I was unsure that she would do. Her price was much better than I expected, which was a big plus. She planned for generous servings. She put the leftovers in our containers and put them in the refrigerator. And one of the biggest pluses -- the kitchen was spotless when she left. I would not hesitate at all in recommending Tracey to others. Cheryl Zionsville
Great service and very delicious food.
Angeleigh's catered my son's graduation party. We had a Hawaiian theme & she prepared delicious food. She was very helpful in deciding what to have, and very kind and easy to work with. I was never worried how things would turn out-which was great so I could enjoy the day! She brought everything needed & it all looked wonderful & tasted delicious! Many friends commented how tasty everything was-& it wasn't your run of the mill graduation party food. I was so thankful for her on a busy day to know that the food was handled & I knew it would be awesome! My guests especially loved the bacon wrapped pineapple & I loved the fluffy fruit dip! Thanks for making what could have been a stressful day one that I could enjoy!!
Chef Chuck catered our daughter's first birthday party for a big crowd. The food was delicious and they were prompt and couteous. Will definitely use their services again if the need arises. Highly recommend! :)
Sherry catered an office party last year for combined birthdays. ﻿The food was delicious and she did a fantastic job making sure we had everything we needed. Great personality too! All were satisfied and had a great time. I have and will continue to recommend her to anyone in need of catering services.
The owner/chef is very professional and friendly. Food is excellent. Definitely call for parties and event catering.
There are probably a hundred restaurants closer to my home than the Local, yet I usually make the extra drive across town and wind up in a booth by the bar. The food is never less than outstanding -- locally-sourced ingredients inventively prepared by people who care about delicious, attractively-plated food. The menu has wonderful old favorites and also interesting specials inspired by seasonal foods and Craig's boundless creativity. The wine and beer selections are reasonable and carefully selected, and the cocktail are terrific. The staff is uniformly friendly, efficient, and informed. Superior ownership and management attract superior employees in this case. It is rare to find first-rate food in such a warm and casual atmosphere -- sans drama and pretense. It is obvious that Craig and Derek started the Local with careful planning -- a thoughtful philosophy about fresh, seasonal ingredients, cooked and served with care by people who are serious about food. I have never had even a mediocre meal there, and cannot recommend it any more highly! I would give them 10 times more stars if I could!
Katt has provided bartending and catering for several small events I held at my home. Food service was just what I want and on budget, Attention to detail was excellent. She arrived when she stated she would, and always left the kitchen area clean after use. I do plan on using her again this season for my holiday party.
JJ listened to my ideas and took them to the next level, but stayed within my budget. Laura brought some wonderful ideas for food and had a beautiful presentation. Everyone talked for weeks afterward about how great the party was and how much fun they had had. Mine was a birthday party and I had wanted to have a fair theme. Epic Events set up various midway games with custom signs. Each game had an entertaining barker and you won tickets which were redeemed for cool prizes later. Laura served standard fair food but with a whimsical flair. It was absolutely the best party ever!!
We have a concession trailer that specializes in BBQ but also do in-house catering and in-house cooking class parties as well as in-house wine tasting parties.
