Bettie was super in every way. The food was delicious and more than ample. She worked easily with special needs of gluten-free and vegetarian. She delivered the food exactly on time with everything we needed - and it was all throw-away so we didn't have to worry about returning anything. I believe the proceeds go to a non-profit organization. I highly recommend Abbey Catering.

We booked George for a wedding in September 2014. He provided great food, great service, and overall, we couldn't have been happier with our choice of caterers. He worked with us in creating the menu and was flexible to accommodate our requests. We had 100 people with heavy apps and a full bar. We had plenty of food and he and his staff exceeded our every expectation (especially considering the price!). We would certainly recommend him to anyone seeking a caterer.

Chef Zach is the best! Words really don't do his food justice, you just have to try his food! Chef Zach created a wonderfully special anniversary dinner for my girlfriend and I. We enjoyed a 7 course tasting menu he created just for us with fresh veggies straight from his personal garden. Bottom line: When you want to truly celebrate and treat your dinner guests to an experience only chefs receive at their friend's restaurants... Give Chef Zach a call!

Tim's cooking is A++++++ top notch!!! He has a knack of creating amazing original dishes, and is also great with duplicating recipes that are tried and true. He is extremely versatile - from fresh yummy homemade breads to homemade dips and sauces , to salads, meats, and desserts. it is all superb.! Tim catered a post wedding party in our backyard and the guests raved about the food! I would definitely use Tim's catering any place for any number of guests at any occasion. !

    Chef Butler catered a five course celebration dinner that was amazing. He provided unexpected special touches such as individualized formal menus for the guests. The coconut shrimp had a beautiful golden brown crunchy exterior yet so moist and flavorful. Best ever! Chef Butler exceeded our expectations. We have another celebration on the horizon. I should book it now.
