We hired Chef Nico for a Cinco de Mayo party, 30 people. He did a preview tasting 10 days before the party so we knew what to expect. His Mexican fare was phenomenal, the crowd was very impressed! He brought and prepared all the food and even complemented it with a signature cocktail! We highly recommend him and will certainly hire him in the future! Huge crowd pleaser!! Awesome man!

We’ve used Em’s catering for both large events and small meals (like a delivery meal to a new mama). She is consistently professional and her food is great. While some chef’s excel in one particular area, all of Em’s food (from appetizers to main dishes, sides, and desserts) are wonderful. Our personal favorites are: Beef Wellington, mushroom risotto, grilled romaine Caesar, warm pumpkin cake, and her yearly Christmas cookies. (I have Em bake cookies for all of my kids teachers) She’s sweet and easy to work with-highly recommend!

Annie did an absolutely amazing job with our rehearsal dinner! The food and drinks were so delicious, the decorations were beautiful and the whole staff was brilliant! She organized it all and everything went so smoothly that we could enjoy ourselves and our friends and family!! She made great suggestions and then took care of every detail for us and it was the most perfect evening! She is so organized, friendly, professional and knows how to throw the best parties! Anyone would be lucky to have her take care of any event!

SweettoothCS did a corporate party for my company. The turn out was amazing. The whole crew arrived on time, service was fast pace and entertaining. Everyone was friendly. Food was delicious, and the drinks they created for us was incredible. We had a guest count of 221 and each person got treated the same, amazing. I love the professionalism they showed. Absolutely no complaints and will be using this company from now on. Our next event is in August. They mean it when they promise satisfaction guarantee.

Matthew provided his services for a meal on my wife's birthday earlier this month. It exceeded our expectations. Incredible presentation, each course was a treat that left us wanting more and eagerly anticipating the next course. Plus, Matthew has a great personality and was a joy to get to know. A great experience.

The cake we ordered was very unusual. It was a 3 tiered cake with a cherry blossom branch draped on the side with peach colored cherry blossoms. She did a FANTASTIC job and the cake was delicious. We had ordered more than enough cake to go around and should have had left overs but not one smidgen was left. Only wedding I've ever seen where there was left over food but no cake. Not only would I recommend Katelyn, but I will definitely use her again! Reliable, reasonable priced, pleasant to work with. Lastly, her portfolio of confections is amazing. Send her what you want and she can do it!

First let me say that Lewis is a world class chef. The food was exceptional. I am retired Army (35 years) and have traveled the world and I am not saying this lightly...Amazing food. Secondly his professional concern for making every detail perfect for our wedding was superb. One of the nicest, friendliest and knowledgeable people I have met (as well as his wife and assistant Lynne). His care, concern and talent - made our wedding extra special for us and all of our guests. On a scale of 1-5 I would give him a 10+ !! Thanks

Baby showers can be stressful but asking Sweet Sentiments Bakery to provide the cake took a lot of it away! I gave the them (pink and zebra print) and they delivered!!!We received non-stop compliments on not the design but the taste as well!!! Whenever someone I know needs a cake for any occasion, they are highly recommended by me!!!!

I worked with Monica from Oak and Dagger to coordinate a party for my fiancé’s 50th birthday. We followed her suggestions on how to use and configure the space and it was great! Not only did our guests have plenty of space to mingle and enjoy the appetizers we’d arranged but they have a separate bar for this area. Drew was our server and bartender and did a great job keeping up with our group and providing suggestions for drinks and food. He even brought the cornhole boards out after dinner to keep the party going well after the plates were cleared. I would definitely recommend Oak & Dagger for an events venue if you want casual and fun with good food and beer.

I have used Terri and her Food Fairies for 5 years or more. She and her team always provide incredibly delicious food at an incredible price. I throw components at her like tight schedule, and needing all local and organic food, with mostly vegetarian and vegan thrown in to boot, and with energy and positive enthusiasm she delivers. She provides recipes after the fact (and the groups she caters for me almost always want them -- even the carnivores in the group find themselves asking for the vegie recipes), and has worked in difficult conditions, such as kitchens without all the nice amenities, with the results still being stellar.

We hired Dissidence for my moms 60th birthday. Paul was so wonderful to work with! He created a special menu for our event and everyone loved it!! The best part about having the food truck was not having to monitor/replenish the food. It also made for a quick clean up. We can’t wait to do another’s event with Dissidence!!

Charlene asked that I place a review on her Thumbtack – where do I begin. I have worked with Char’s Catering for several of my events. My first encounter was a wedding in 2012. I was allowed to join the bride and groom for their taste testing and the food was outstanding. Nothing was too salty or over/under cooked. We had baked tilapia – delicious. Our next encounter was for a retirement celebration in Reidsville in 2013. Yes she travels. Again the food was absolutely delicious and her staff was awesome as well. I remember the salad being the bomb! I love salads and it just stood out. I’m not sure if it was the dressing or the freshness of the salad itself. Then she catered for a fund raising event in October 2015 for me. The food was incredible, even a guest caterer asked who she was. Her staff were efficient and very helpful. Our most recent taste testing was in April 2016 for an upcoming event in October. Boy, the food was once again outstanding and prepared differently. She also offered desserts. Our client had a field day with the desserts. She has a glowing personality and is very personable and professional. She is organized and timely which is a must in this industry. She is neat, clean and works hard to please her clients. I’ve seen her in action and been a client of hers. When selecting a caterer, I think about what event I’m doing and if that caterer can meet the theme of the event and prepare & present good tasting food for the guests. Char’s catering can do this, she meets the clients requests. She is my go to caterer. She comes highly recommended.

Simply scrumptious are the absolute best caterers I have ever used hands down! The food is amazing. They cook any type of food you can imagine. The shrimp and grits and the roast chicken were to die for. I have used them for cookouts, graduation parties, work events, and birthday parties. They are always prompt and professional.
