    During a very difficult time in planning services for my father-in-law's passing, RY Catering was helpful, patient, and responsive to what the family needed. The service is wonderful, and the food got several compliments!! We so appreciate the experience, especially at such a stressful time for us!!!!

    I highly recommend RY Catering. I found Renee through thumbtack after looking for a caterer in the area who could help with a two day seminar. Not only was the food amazing, but she provided first class professional service. She added to the success of the meeting with her menu selection. All attendees were very complimentary of their meal and requested her business card. This is one of the first events I put together in which everything on the menu was tasty.

    My 9 year old boys devoured the vegetables, asked for seconds, and even "borrowed" some from my plate when I wasnt looking. LOL. Anyone with kids knows that its not any easy feat to kids to eat veggies. Renee made it effortless. Bravo!

    RY Catering's delectable delights were so tantalizing that they became part of our event's discourse. Coupled with professionalism, courteous, and timely service sets RY catering apart from other companies and we will definitely continue to use them for future events.

    RY Catering did not disappoint. It was an absolute pleasure and a real blessing to have found Renee for my event this past weekend. Everyone loved the food, BBQ/Fish Fry menu. The collard/kale mix was absolutely delicious, full flavor, nice texture and color. Everyone loved and talked about the greens. Not a serving left. The burgers were seasoned to perfection and juicy. Compliments flowed from beginning to end. The Red Velvet dessert with fresh berries was also a hit. RY Catering did an amazing job! Thank you, Renee. Your service, professionalism, and beautiful Spirit helped make our event a great success and a memorable one. Continued Success! ~
