Mermaid catering worked with me to create the perfect buffet style reception for my bonus daughter's senior recital at a university. They were flexible enough to work within the time constraints of a public space, and put out a beautifully presented buffet with delicious small snacks and desserts. Those who attended the recital reception were heard commenting on how beautiful everything looked and praising the tastiness of the foods, even wishing other receptions were like this one. The pricing was very competitive to similar providers - having seen the finished product, I would not hesitate to pay slightly more for what I have seen as a clearly superior service. The attendants were well-dressed and professional, the entire buffet was set up and cleaned up with thorough attention to detail. Our event was for 80 people - they made it look easy and it was gorgeous. The menu items were fresh, well-presented and included seasonal items. The owner, Julie was a pleasure to deal with and was quick, concise and professional in her communications with me as I planned this event from out of state. Julie made the process stress-free and exceeded my expectations with her products and service. I would highly recommend Mermaid Catering without reservation.

Mermaid catering arrived on schedule, had the house set up in no time, prepped the food and bar and worked throughout the event to keep the tables and dishes clean and organized. The two-person team were professional, organized and anticipated every need. They were a joy to work with. Our party was a resounding success because of their efforts. We'll use Mermaid again!

Chef Zimmerman cater my Corp event. I was in charge of my annual picnic. On A Roll Catering help me a lot. I had to feed at least 500 + people. They came and set up with no problem. Everyone was quoting me $15 to $20 per person. They quoted me $10. The mac and cheese was creamy. Tiffany was very nice. My boss shocked and might even let me plan the company Christmas Party. Thanks On A Roll

Although I never got to meet these guys in person, their service was superb! I hired them to do the catering for my rehearsal dinner. Our rehearsal ran late so I had a friend stay behind so the caterer could set up the food. It was nicely laid out and tasted great!! I was so impressed and wish I had known about these guys for my wedding. I would recommend them to anyone.

Great service and food! My husband hired Chef Demetrius to cook a surf and turf meal for my 27th birthday. The food was AMAZING! We had jumbo lump crab cakes, steak with grilled shrimp skewers, mashed potatoes and gravy, and asparagus. I'm a Maryland native and very picky about my seafood but, these were some of the BEST crab cakes I've ever had! Not only was the food delicious, Chef D and his Sous Chef were very professional and accommodating. I was in the process of moving and had virtually no kitchenware; he provided everything. It truly felt as if we were in our own private little restaurant. They constantly checked on us while still giving us the privacy of an intimate setting. We'll definitely be using him again!

Chef Demetrius came to my home to prepare my meals about 2-3 times a week. Meals were prepared and left in refrigerator. Kitchen was cleaned and if I needed any instructions he would text them to me. He always text ahead of time to let me know when he was coming and when he was finished and also to make sure I enjoyed the food. The cuisine was absolutely delicious there was one meal I did not like. He did the grocery shopping for me so it was a very easy process for me. Just come home and enjoy! Excellent work very professional and trustworthy!

Alpha Pitt Smokers by Jason Martocci was the best wedding food we will ever have and for a very reasonable price. Poor Jason had a rough and strict diet he had to work with for my wife and he did an excellent job. My wife is deathly allergic to seafood, antibiotic/hormone free meat, and Gluten is no fun for her either. We really wanted something special for our wedding that everyone loves; and everyone loves a good cookout. It is hard to find cookout food everyone can enjoy with out harming my wife. Normally when we go to a cook out she just doesn't eat. No one was willing to take the challenge because they didn't want to alter their recipes until Jason. Jason made homemade gluten free bread for our Gluten Free cheese stuffed sliders; Stuffed Chicken and pork, Fresh grilled veggies and a wonderful fall salad. We froze all of the leftovers and ate the last two sliders we had when we got back from our Honeymoon. The worse part for Jason was we had to do a tasting of his food which meant Jason had to make the food twice. Both times absolutely perfect. This was the best wedding food we ever had (twice). He also took our orders and made a special plate just for us and kept it warm so we could eat and get right back to the party. The run through the food line was purely a show with no pressure and all fun. A small FYI: at the tasting he invited several of his chefs for us to meet and cooked some bacon wrapped shrimp for them on a separate grill. Since I don't have the same allergies as my wife I tried one. It was the best and last bacon wrapped shrimp I will ever have. We joke that we will have to renew our vowels every year just to have a good cookout. A person that will change their recipes; without hindering their flavor profile and cater to your needs is what catering is all about. That is definitely something that Alpha Pitt smokers does and does right.

Jason was awesome! To start with, he worked with us to give me exactly what I wanted for my wedding that fit my budget, including a caramel apple bar. He came all the way from Williamsburg, VA to Currituck, NC to cook for us so we could sample his food before making a decision. He cooked two different meals and we loved them both, but decided to go with the pork dish. Jason is a great communicator and promptly answered any questions I had throughout the wedding planning process. He was able to accommodate the guest count change I had, days before the wedding (it increased from 80 guests to 90) and even reminded me of some small details I had forgotten in all the chaos of planning a wedding. Jason and his assistants showed up at a reasonable hour the day of the wedding and I did not have to instruct them in any way. I confidently left to get ready for the wedding knowing they would have everything perfect for the reception. The guests raved about how delicious the food was, and the caramel apple bar was a hit! His assistants were so incredible in that they helped everyone make their caramel apples, cleared away dirty dishes, and assisted in serving cake to the guests. They went above and beyond what I was expecting out of this catering service. I cannot recommend Alpha Pitt Smokers enough. Jason and his crew are prepared - rain or shine - for whatever your special day has to offer; this was especially important since my day was full of rain. Please contact Jason as soon as possible and I can assure you, you won't regret it. He is warm, funny, and goes out of his way to make sure your day is perfect.

My family had Ross Catering handle my wedding reception that was buffet style for 250 people. Her people was polite and very helpful. The way they had eve rything put together and set up had everybody talking. They even had the food tables nicelt decorated with wedding ambiance. Food was all great. So from there we have used Ross catering for a home dinner party and a birthday party. Well worth every dollar.

We had a family and friends backyard gathering. Ross catering actually did the planning to my specifications. I had an old school R&B band for 3 hrs a DJ, a photographer and a bartender and of course they did the food which was ALL GOOD. Her catering staff was so efficient we were able to really enjoy the gathering without supervising. We were also celebrating our parents anniversary.

Thank you Ross Catering. I had Ross Catering do several personal chef dinners for me. I can't cook a lick and I don't really like resturants so when dating I would have a personal chef cook a dinner. Always had great & impressive evenings.

I am a business owner and hired DD214 Catering to cater my annual Client Appreciation Party. We had around 75 guests and the reviews regarding the food, service and friendliness of the caters was 5 Stars. From the planning stages to the finished product these folks fired on all 12 cylinders. I will not only be hiring them again but highly recommend anyone having a catered event do the same.
