    Pete was a pleasure to work with. I have worked with a few different catering companies and Pete was a very easy going, non pressure guy. The food was great, and there was plenty of food for the people I needed to feed. I would recommend Pete and his staff to anyone!

    From the time that I searched for a caterer using Thumbtack to the time that Pete dropped my decor off to me after our event, Pete and Juli were professional and responsive. Not to mention the food was AMAZING!! All of our guests raved about how delicious everything was. Pete and Juli also have GREAT ideas!! They suggested the venue where our wedding ceremony ended up being held since we didn't know of any outdoor venues in our price range (we are an out-of-town couple and we were planning a destination wedding in Charleston). They also suggested doing blondies to go with the brownies for dessert that we wanted. Pete and Juli really went above and beyond as far as I'm concerned: they booked the ceremony chairs (even though they were at a separate venue), they picked up all of my decor items, set them up exactly as I specified, and returned them to me a couple days after the reception so that I wouldn't have to worry about packaging them up at the end of the reception. I can't thank them enough and I would definitely very HIGHLY recommend them to anyone that is looking for a caterer in the Charleston area. They were so helpful, the food was AWESOME, and they were wonderful to work with the entire time!!! :-) :-)

    Islands Catering not only recommended a great baker and picked up our birthday cake, but did setup in the pouring rain. They quickly reacted and improvised in response to the changing weather. I saw several guests approach Pete to ask for contact info for their upcoming events, and everyone raved about the food!

    Fed a party of 50 hungry military members good hot food with plenty left over, for a reasonable price. You can't ask for anything better than that. I would definitely recommend. Thanks Pete!

    Chef Pete Twomey of Islands Catering was tremendous! Talented, easy to work with, helpful, friendly, and fun. He did more than I expected and everyone LOVED the delicious dinner. I will use him again - and so will the people who attended the dinner!

    Juli and Pete were amazing with the short time that they had to cater my wedding. They jumped right in and took control so there was little that I had to do. Not only did I appreciate all of their effort and work, several family memembers and friends have commented on what a wonderful job they did. The food was delicious! They blended my fiancés family's tastes and mine perfectly into one well put together and cohesive menu. If you are looking for catering for any event, Islands Catering is the way to go! Awesome people!

    Words cannot describe how happy we were with Island Catering! They catered our wedding last month and I am still hearing from guests raving about how good the food was. Pete and Juli Twomey were truly remarkable! From the beginning until the end, I have nothing but glowing reviews- from the communication to the menu to the wedding day to the meal, the whole experience was incredible. If you are looking for professionals to cater your wedding or event and you want truly delicious food at an unbelievable price, look no further, Island Catering is the answer to your prayers! I cannot rave on enough about how perfect they helped make our special day!

    This is the first time I have used Islands Catering and I was very sarisfied. They delivered the food on time and were very helpful getting things set up. I received rave reviews from my customer on the smoked bar-b-que. It was delicious. The potato sald, cole slaw and brownies were excellent as well. I will definitely use Islands Catering for future events.

    In his preparations for a Sunday morning, February 24, 2013 large-scale breakfast event for Elizabeth Colbert Busch and Stephen Colbert, Pete Twomey was thoroughly professional in: submitting menu proposals entirely appropriate for the event; attending several major planning meetings and offering advice on main room and green room set-ups, arrangements of food displays, managing audience flow; establishing rapport with and earning the confidence and respect of event planners and venue managers; maintaining effective and timely communications with all concerned parties; remaining flexible by accomodating the changing logistics of an event involving a major television personality and a candidate for the U.S. Congress. Pete rendered these impressive services within a 12- day window to prepare for the event. Pete's appearance in uniform and his performance at the event were exceedingly well received by the 250+ guests in attendance. Many guests complimented the food quality, taste and display. Pete personally met and greeted guests. Pete took the time to pause for photographs requested by numerous guests. Finally, the event was a huge success due in large measure to Pete Twomey's personal care and attention to details, his high standards for the culinary arts, and his prompt, courteous and professional approaches to meeting the public.
