Carmen and her team are some of the hardest working people I have had the honor to see in action. We chose An Affair to Remember to cater our daughter's wedding in Morganton because she is down-to-earth and seemed very service-oriented. If there is something we need at weddings is service. Carmen's team exceeded our expectations. For the sake of simplicity I asked Carmen to prepare a buffet. Everyone said the food was delicious. As the mother of the bride I had no appetite (except for champagne). All the food was devoured. I feel I did not take advantage Carmen's full abilities by not asking for passed appetizers or food stations. She arrived with her team around noon and stayed until 11pm to wash all our rented dishes and clean up. By the time she left our kitchen was spotless. Bravo, Carmen. The only thing I would add for someone who has never had a caterer: buy your own ice. It was an oversight on my part and assumed caterers brought it. Thankfully I had a willing guest happy to run out for it. Another thing: We had a cheesecake wedding cake and I was worried about cutting it. Carmen stepped in and said she would cut it and set out the coffee service at the same time. She helped make our wedding wonderful.

We recently planned a celebration for our 50th wedding anniversary in January 2016. It included an evening buffet meal for over 50 friends and family. Following an internet search on Thumbtack we chose Chef Tyler of Personal Chef to the Stars for our first private chef experience. We have a well equipped kitchen and wanted the enjoyment of watching the food being prepared in our own home versus having the meal catered. The food and service were fantastic - awesome hors d'oeuvres, delicious dinner buffet and a crowd stopping superb dessert. Chef Tyler delivered beyond our expectations - from the advanced planning to the super clean up and all our guests were impressed and delighted. We would recommend the personal chef experience with Chef Tyler to anyone.

We needed catering of lunch and dinner for at least 30 days to possibly 1 year, 7 days every week for approximately 100 people with emphasis on vegetarian, vegan, gluten free and special diets. Many caterers with great reviews were easy to dismiss once they were interviewed. Carolina catering delivered what they promised: delicious food at a reasonable price with excellent personal service and a huge selection - even for those special dietary needs. I have used caterers throughout the country to take on this monumental task and no one has delivered the quality, variety, and scrumptious food Carolina Gourmet Catering has. I cannot thank them enough. And, by the way, we are 3 weeks into our project and continue to be very happy with the results. The only problem we have had was running out of food because people have been going back for second and third helpings because the food is so good! Make sure you prepare for this if it's buffet style.

Chef Dave was wonderful! He was very quick to respond to emails and punctual at both the consultation and dinner. His food was incredible and his personality was friendly but unobtrusive. We loved having him in our home, recommend him to everyone and will certainly be using his services again!

I had The Cook Nook cater a private dinner for two. The food was delicious, and the service was impeccable. Catherine prepared a steak dinner and honestly it was the best steak I’ve ever eaten and I’m a regular at Morton’s and Capital Grill. The appetizers, sides, and main dish were all delicious. It was a beautiful meal and a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend Catherine for a fantastic experience that your guests will thoroughly enjoy! Tamra R.

I used Divine Cultural Cuisine for a private dinner party for 4. The Chef showed up on time with all the equipment. He was very careful and precise in cleaning his work area before and AFTER dinner. The party started at 7 pm and he showed up around 615pm to start prep work. Our menu was amazing and I am still full while typing this review. It consisted of Savannah calamari and crab stuffed shrimp as an appetizer. The portions were huge. We literally had to tell him to take the plate from us or we wouldn't have been able to eat the entree or dessert. I have to add, he applied some "orange sauce" to the shrimp that I literally would drink a bucket of. Chef Reeves is a saucier by trade so he knows what he is doing. Next, we were served a mixed green salad with a warm raspberry hazelnut dressing which was divine. Our main course was a surf and turf menu of orange soy glazed salmon and NY strip with mixed veggies and potato cakes. I don't know where to start. The steak was cooked perfectly. Salmon was cooked so well that I am troubled that I may never be able to cook salmon in my household again. And this orange soy glaze. He wouldn't tell us the ingredients but we tried to bribe him an undisclosed amount of money which he politely refused. I personally like grits so he made a side dish of his grits. They were the best grits I have ever tasted in my life and I am born and raised in the South. Just a wonderful meal from this point that was about to blow our minds. For dessert, might I add I don't even remember when he prepared it as we were stuffing our faces, creme brulee cheesecake with a white chocolate sauce and red velvet cake shooters with fresh fruit. The entire meal was better than I ever expected. My only regret is that we didn't know Chef Reeves and Divine Cultural Cuisine when we were getting married as we surely would have had him cater for us. We will be reaching out to him. We will be using him in the future and I truly believe if you have read all of this review up to this point, you will use him too.

I am SO glad I chose to hire Joya to be the private chef at my event. She cooked 5 meals for us + snacks all vegan. Not everyone at the event was vegan but everyone found ALL the meals delicious which was amazing. She was one time and on schedule for everything, so sweet, put a lot of love into her food/work and I truly hope to work with her again in the future. If you are thinking about hiring Joya definitely do it! You will not regret it.

Total Events made our wedding everything we dreamed it would be. Trisha is thorough and has an amazing attention to detail. She thinks of everything, which made my job as the bride a breeze! She really listened to what we wanted and made our day exactly how we had envisioned it. More than that, she cared about us as a couple and made us feel so special. Would recommend Total Events to anyone for their big day!

Your appetizers and buffet items were so fresh and everyone just raved about them. You really made me look very smart for hiring you. You have a great talent for choosing unusual components that make for a wonderful taste experience without being "out there." Thanks for your excellent service. Everything exceeded our expectations and we will use you again real soon.

Yevads events did my 40th birthday party. They provided my invitations, catering and decorate. I had an all white theme and they decorated my outdoor party with white pipping drapes with white linens and white chair covers. They accented the white decore with rhinestone Center pieces. The food was amazing! The staff was punctual and had the food set up and warm in time for my guest. My event was an evening of elegance.

    About

    Established in 2009, Fort Mill BBQ Company has always served what we call “catered southern cuisine”. Our incredible blend of herbs and spices make our food the memorable type of cuisine that you simply can’t wait to have again. You can experience our food at either our restaurant location or in the comfort of your own home, place of work, or favorite gathering spot via the catering services side of Fort Mill BBQ Company. Our trained, experienced staff delivers “catered southern cuisine” on a daily basis to companies and individuals all over the Charlotte Metro area, ranging in guest sizes from 15 to 1,500. We cater to family reunions, weddings, corporate events, birthday parties and virtually everything in between. It's more than just BBQ! Our philosophy toward each and every person that eats with us, whether it’s a catered event or a simple dining experience, at our restaurant is to make it memorable. This is in reference to not only the quality of our food but the overall experience which starts with our first interaction together. Those existing mainstay items are our hickory/cherry wood-smoked meats (pulled pork BBQ, ribs, turkey, brisket, chicken, and beef sausages), our chipotle cheese spread, our homemade macaroni-n-cheese, our smoked corn “maque choux” and our homemade sauces (our signature sauce is virtually everyone’s favorite). This knowledge that our staff offers makes the overall interaction as productive and as streamlined as possible. We will ask you questions in efforts of identifying your overall needs, your desires, learn what your budget is (a major component in today’s economy) besides any specific things you may feel we could do to make your event “special”. We will then make menu suggestions (if we don’t have a specific package that is exactly what you want) to make your experience with us as one of the best you've ever had with a catering company. After we are officially brought on board as your caterer of choice, we will then do our part; we will prepare all as discussed, deliver to your facility, and set up your food, ultimately making your day-of-the-event experience as easy and painless as possible (at least when it comes to the food). All you have to do is sit back, and take the positive feedback from your guests about your caterer choice and their overall satisfaction with the food. As stated earlier, “catered southern cuisine” is what we specialize in and what we provide each and every time. Our food has been repeatedly compared to “down home cooking” and “the way mama used to make”, that is why we have always called our food.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
