Lyndall deserves a review here even though we ended up not using him. A last minute cancelled wedding called for an emergency backup plan for plated catering in a few days and Lyndall was ready to serve! The downside was just NOT USING THEM! A double booking of food forced me to cancel the option of continuing to use them. Lyndall I appreciate your prompt response this morning. I believe in reviews so here’s for the next person. These guys were so helpful and as you can see disaster was set and they were ready to rescue. If I ever come back out your way, I’m forcing my sister to hire you guys! Much love from California.

Details: Special occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc.) • 11 - 20 guests • Dinner • Premium (high end ingredients) • Cold beverages (non-alcoholic) • American - formal • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

Lyndall and his excellent team worked very hard to make sure everything was beautifully presented for a milestone birthday party with approx 60 attendees. Everything we ordered was delicious, and we had an eclectic menu of small bites, including both hot and cold dishes. Most importantly, the owner was terrific about knowing how to tailor the menu to our needs. Would definitely recommend Knotty Pine Catering!

We celebrated a 70th birthday party with the help of Knotty Pine Catering. It was such a fun night. I, as the host, didn't have to worry about any of the food. They took care of it all. I could sit back and really enjoy the company. The food was amazing. They even made a special menu for the kids. I would highly recommend Knotty Pine Catering and I'm excited for the next reason to use them.
