Introduction: Whether cooking for a party of 100 or an intimate in-home dinner, we believe a host and their guests deserve the same attention to detail, modern aesthetic, and skilled technique that they would find in the best restaurants. And while we approach the realm of catering with an uncommon precision, we know that fancy doesn't always mean quality. Our inspiration draws on all of our favorite food experiences where the theme is uncomplicated and purely delicious. Our repertoire touches every end of the culinary spectrum: from lowcountry crawfish boils, to classic charcuterie making, to 8 course tasting menus, to a perfectly simple roasted chicken. We have a passion for all things food and believe hospitality is a natural extension of wanting to share that passion. A happy host and well fed guests are what brings us the most enjoyment.

Chef Chris cooked for our 14 person wedding hosted on the front porch of our home and was absolutely spectacular. In the planning stages, he helped coordinate directly with the vendor Peak for our table settings, plus gave us an incredible summer menu to choose from. He even accommodated our guest with a special dietary requests. The entire meal from start to finish was 10/10. He cooked in our kitchen (with no AC) and came out with his server to announce each course and mingle with the table. Our server took drink orders and ensured everyone was accommodated. This truly was an experience we will remember for a lifetime! Thank you so much, Chef Chris and team for making our evening absolute perfection ☺️

Exemplary is an understatement. I hired the Henry's for a bachelorette party and the food and service was impeccable. Not only was the food to die for, but the service blew me away. It was exactly like being out to eat in your own home! The servers were so welcoming to all our guests and made sure your glass was full all night. The Henry's are a hidden gem and I will definitely be using them again in the future.

I can't say enough. I hired Chris for my dads suprise 70th birthday. He was above and beyond my expectations. He was punctual, organized, listened to what we wanted. Not only was he easy to work with, the food was absolutely delicious. Everything looked beautiful the way he plated it. Side note: the crab and artichoke dip was unbelievable. All the food was outstanding, and we had ALOT OF VARIETY. We started with appetizers. After about an hour and a half he slowly transitioned into dinner. And by the time we were ready for dessert the entire kitchen was clean. Not only was Chris amazing but the assistant Liz he brought along made the night. She filled drinks. Cleared plates. Cleaned the entire kitchen and took care of all our needs. Truly it was the most amazing night and it was that way because of Chris and Liz. I can't say enough!

They were very nice but server was asked to wear mask and did not put one on until she sneezed in the food. Presentation needed a bit of work and food was packed up and taken home at end of event instead of being left for family to consume once guests departed

The Henrys's reply
In response to this review: The client confirmed for 25 guests and when we arrived onsite, we were told by the client's brother that there would be 36 guests in attendance. The client had also negotiated a reduced rate on the presumption that this was a mid-afternoon snack and not a full meal. Based on this misrepresentation, there were no leftovers. Masks were worn by all staff for the duration of the event and every food safety practice was adhered to. At no time did staff sneeze on the food. Presentation was executed on professional, white platters. The client then insisted that everything be re-plated on thin pieces of wood stapled together, garnished with sandy stalks of Swiss chard. We did wash the Swiss chard to make it usable and acquiesced to this request. Since being flexible and hospitable is always my first instinct when trying to satisfy a discerning client, I extended as many courtesies as possible here and even worked through some unexpected obstacles (our setup time was delayed by 30 minutes as the client's kitchen was made inaccessible to us). Myself and my staff are seasoned industry professionals and I have the utmost confidence that we delivered an exceptional experience, I'm just sorry it wasn't enough for this client.

The Henry's did a fantastic job catering my wedding. My (now) husband is vegan so I wanted an accessible all-vegan meal. They worked with me and created a masterpiece that everyone loved. I highly recommend them!
