I was very pleased with the drop-off catering service. Chef Dominick was quick to reply to inquiries and flexible in accomodating my requests. The guests complimented the meal and the portions were very generous. Overall a great experience.

Prestige Catering was on the ball right from the start. Super fast and honest quote, they worked with our menu needs flawlessly and their staff were professional and delivered the food on time the day of the event. We hired them 'from afar' and were hesitant at the beginning b/c we weren't going to be at the event, but these guys carried the day. I would recommend them for any catering event and would use them again. Oh.. and the food was delicious!

Greg himself was over 2 hours late arriving to set up. He was supposed to arrive at 2:30 an food was to be served by 5-5:30. He arrived at 4:30 only to leave 15 min later because he received a call from his driver with the food saying he was lost and was having a panic attack. Greg and his sister left his niece, which was her 1st day on the job, (as she told me) at the reception to get drinks going, which she didn't do, that had to be done by my son-in-laws aunt's and grandmother and myself. My daughter's wedding was ruined. I am not being dramatic it was absolutely ruined. I didn't get to enjoy the reception nor did my son-in-laws mother because we were to busy getting coffee refilled and drinks and dealing with the driver who had come in thru the front door and told a guest how he needed to lay down because he was having a panic attack. So, while Greg dished out the food (which I was told some of the chicken was undercooked) uncles. aunts, and church elders were continuously checking on Greg's employee, which is ridiculous because they were there for a reception of their niece and nephew. Also, because of his lateness, about 150 ppl left because the wedding was at 4:30 and ppl were starving by 7:00 and no food had arrived. so needless to say her mother-in-law who paid for 300 ppl, only about 150 ppl actually ate. Greg arrived about 7:20 and food was served about 7:40. (ppl complained of the chicken being undercooked). I then found out, once the reception was over and cleaning up that Greg threw away about 4 trays of chicken, at least 4 trays of lasagna,(I saw this in 2 garbage bags that were half full of this food, and was told by a groomsman who was taking the trash out that he had taken 2 other bags just like that, he also took back the breadsticks he didn't use and took with him the green beans and salad that were left over. This truly disgusts me. This food was paid for and he just threw it away. he did leave 3 trays of chicken and 2 trays of lasagna, but threw away so much more without asking?? That food was paid for. I didn't pay for the food this was done by my daughter's mother-in-law. From what I understand Greg's response was to give her a $100 back and then credit towards her next event!!! Why he would think she would ever use him again is beyond me. His response was that in his contract, he's not responsible for what his driver does (he failed to respond to the fact that HE was 2 hrs late) also, that HE threw away all that food. He also said he'd already given us a big discount. That discount was because we had 300 guests (he had 3 ppl as his staff, which consisted of him, his sister and his niece who looked to be about 18 and it was her first time) and that was his excuse for not refunding her money back. The discount does not excuse the fact that HE was late, his driver was late, he threw away food, he didn't provide drink service (we did, aunts and grandma's and myself and her mother-in-law). When her mother-in-law said that was unacceptable I hear he threatened her with his lawyer. She wasn't even looking for a full refund which i believe she deserves, the very least she should be refunded for the 150 ppl that walked out.(she said she would have been ok with $500 back just for the gesture of admitting he completely screwed up our kids wedding reception) I don't now where this stands but I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS CATERER. I read his reviews and I met him in person. I trusted that he was going to help make my daughter's day special and something to remember. He definitely didn't make it special but it will be remembered. I understand things happen the driver getting lost, but none of this would've happened if Greg hadn't been late himself and there's no excuse for throwing away that food.

I am excited to be using A Catered Affair for our wedding in October! Greg worked with me to customize a menu for my large group of picky eaters. I gave him my budget and he stuck to it. They came to my house for the testing. One of our choices was fried chicken. Not knowing how well the chicken would be after travel time, they brought a back up entree just in case. It was all so good we couldn't decide....so now we are having 3 entrees. Besides all the food being delicious, the presentation was just as wonderful. They brought a bottle of wine and candles. It was an all around fabulous experience! Besides the quality of catering, I have to say the customer service I recieve from Greg is by far the best I have recieved from any vendor. He is quick to respond and if it is going to take him a day or two for an answer he will tell you that so you aren't left hanging. I know I made a great choice!

Greg and his staff did a fantastic job catering our Church event. The menu was simply elegant, presentation top notch and the food was incredible. We will use An Event by Greg for our future events (professionally and personally) and will highly recommend that you use them too!

I was in a real jam for our daughter's Bridal Shower. Because we had sold our home and I was so busy with packing and moving, and then unpacking, I let the time slip-up on me to get the food ordered and prepared for the Shower ! It was Chuck, at A CATERED AFFAIR, and his wonderful associates, who said they could make this happen for me, even with the short notice as the 2 weeks I gave them ! (My words, NOT his). THIS IS AN AMAZING COMPANY AND GROUP OF WONDERFUL, CARING PROFESSIONALS !! They are Extremely Professional, kind and frankly, my LIFESAVERS ! I tried several other catering companies. One did not answer, 2 were booked, and acted as if I had created a major and profound injury, but Chuck said, "We can help you !" And I know they were, and are, as busy as any other catering business at this time of year: So, my profound thanks for their willingness to help me out of a very tough situation !

Chuck was amazing! He was extremely responsive and conscientious of my budget and limited time frame. He worked with me to create a menu that fit exactly what we needed for my company's event. Chuck always responded quickly and professionally to my calls and emails. A Catered Affair also provided a server and bartender for our event, who were both great! I would definitely work with Chuck and A Catered Affair again for a future catering need! 5/5 starts!!

I needed a quality caterer in a hurry from afar. I read the reviews for Chef Jessica, and sent her some ideas for the 2 days we would need her. She is so easy to work with. The group wrote back telling me "the Catering was a hit! The quality of the food is great and we will definitely redo if we ever need it again!" Day 2 they came back with " She out did herself! Thank you for the awesome food, set up and take down was seamless. The display was beautiful!" I can say that my company is very loyal to a caterer once they find one they like. They are very particular about the quality, and Jessica hit it out of the park! We will continue to use her for future needs!.. Thank you Jessica!

I hired Jessica to cater an Open House for our Home Care Agency. From the moment I met Jessica I liked her! She is warm and friendly with a "can do" attitude. She presented me with a gourmet lunch menu all made with fresh foods and herbs. Her presentation of the food and arrangements was beautiful. She used fresh flowers and herbs from her own garden. We had @ 50 guests and had plenty of food. The guests couldn't stop talking about how good all the food was! I would use Jessica again and I would definitely recommend her for any catering job. She is a wonderful person!

Jay Woosely of The Happy Chefs did an amazing job! He is a brilliant artist! This was my first experience hiring a personal chef. He helped guide me through the process. He was very easy to work with. Jay did exactly what he promised he would do and then some. He and his staff were very personable and honest. His creations were delectable and aesthetically pleasing! Jay helped to make our evening dinner for two one to remember. Thanks Jay! I will be using this service again! I would highly recommend Jay and The Happy Chefs for all of your catering needs.

I usually do the cooking for family functions but with my daughter's very casual, backyard wedding, I knew that I would be in over my head. DeAnna was great!!! And the FOOD, presentation and taste, were excellent!!! All my guests approached me to comment on the food. Needless to say, there was very little left. Thanks DeAnna, if I ever need catering again, I will use Bailey Family Catering. Kim Middleton

I am so impressed with the quality of Lety Sanchez' cooking. Her food is definitely not the typical Mexican fare we think of. It is inventive, yet with a traditional quality that reminds her of her home and family. She is excited about her flavors and creations. Her baking is interesting, attractive and delicious. Her sauces are distinct and fresh. Her passion for cooking is evident. I work with her twice a week in a completely different circumstance and have always found her to be punctual, extremely cheerful, dedicated and very enjoyable to be around.

We used Horchata LLC to cater for a group of people that we were presenting to. There were about 15 people in attendance. Every single person was highly impressed with the quality of food as well as the taste. There was plenty of food left over. The team at Horchata set up everything for us. I would recommend them to cater for any of your catering needs. I'm looking forward to using them in the future.

I catered with Horchata for my WIfe's 40th surprise party. Food was amazing and we even had left for couple of days. The chef was punctual and even made Margaritas for the party with no extra charge. Strongly recommend Horchata. Every one loved the food/setup. If you are looking for a hassle free experience with awesome food, Horchata is the way to go...

We lived in Chicago for ten of the last 11 years, moving to Shelbyville this summer. One of the first things my husband wanted to find was good BBQ, and we did! We absolutely love Big Red's BBQ. I believe we have had it all, the brisket, fall of the bone ribs, pulled pork, rib tips, and smoked chicken, plus mac and cheese and baked beans. Not only is it phenomenal, it is consistent. If you have a chance, catch them at an event in Shelbyville or check them out at FaceBook on when and where they will be next so you can get a taste of the menu for your next event! I cannot wait to have them cater for my family when they come up this summer! They keep saying they have to "taste" for themselves that the BBQ can be that good, and they will!

All of my experiences with Curtis have been phenominal. I have been a guest, able to enjoy his incredible food and ambiance and I have also been his coworker able to enjoy being a part of an awesome team. From brick oven pizza to Five Star - 3 course meals, I have never been disappointed and my taste buds have always been surprised and satisfied with his creations. Curtis can create gourmet meals out of what the average person would consider very unlikely. He is also versitile and caters deliciously to dietary restrictions, allergies, and is especially creative with children's meals. Not only do I LOVE his food, his positive attitude and drive for success puts it over the top. You will get more than you pay for when hiring his services. Whether you are looking for a finger food buffet, bruncheck style luncheon, a special dinner for two, birthday parties, or a five course dinner, I HIGHLY recommend Chloe's Eatery!

I have had the pleasure of working with Curtis in both food service and hospitality business. He is easy and fun to work with, is good with people, and created really good food. We worked together at a high end lodge, creating menus for special events, and for international clients with diverse food requirements. He is innovative and creative with flavors, ingredients, and events. We also hosted cooking classes where Curtis taught basic kitchen skills as well as varied menu items. Our clients loved our food, and this helped build the reputation we have for our dining room. I never pass up a chance to eat at Chloe's either! Great food! Definitely would hire Curtis back in an instant if we had the chance!
