My husband and I decided to get married rather quickly and only had 13 days to pull together all the details. Julie at Mermaid Catering was one of the first caterers to respond to my request for a quote. After exchanging a few messages via the Thumbtack site, Julie had a good idea of the type of food items we wanted and was very prompt in responding with a great menu and great price quote. We worked with Julie to secure a bartender. We supplied all the alcohol and Mermaid Catering supplied all the mixers, plates, plastic glasses, etc. The food was delicious, fresh and beautifully presented. Julie was fun and easy to work with, she was prompt getting back to me and arrived at our wedding with ample time to set up. Julie, you did a GREAT job, the food was delicious and the presentation beautiful. Thank you for working with me under such time restraints. We received many compliments on the food and presentation. Thank you SO much for helping to make our wedding perfect!

Chef Zimmerman's work was excellent. We had a summer party and we had about 50-100 people. But I think there may have been more. The food was amazing and the price was awesome. They gave me free plates, napkins and schafers. The fact that they took the time to come all the way out to me which is about an 1 1/2 hrs away was awesome. There service was truly wonderful, I would use them again.

We hired Brandon as a personal chef for my wife's 50th birthday party. He was extremely helpful in putting together the menu, flexible in working with our choices, and very cost-effective. He and Ashley did a great job with setup, presentation, communication, and cleanup. The food was fantastic, from the appetizers (crab cakes in Cajun remoulade and summer spinach salad) to the entrees (fresh rockfish in a lemon dill cream sauce and steak with a red wine mushroom reduction) and the delicious chocolate cake. My wife and many of our friends are "foodies", and Brandon's meal earned an ovation from our group. Well done, and thanks for making my wife's special day extra special!

Jason and his team provided the perfect food for my big day! I got compliments on the BBQ food even from vegetarians! Everything was wonderful and he went above and beyond what I initially planned. From the cocktail hour to a bartender to the amazing dinner to ice cream sundaes, he and his team made this day truly special for us! The groom and I couldn't wait to get back to the hotel for leftovers!!!

Ms Spears did a wonderful job with both food quality and presentation. Arrived early, completely cleaned up and left late to ensure everything went smoothly. Would definitely hire again for my next party.

The food was off the chain! I hired Charlotte's to cater my mother's 60th birthday party and the food prepared was a hit. We did a tasting beforehand and food was adjusted to my likings for the party. Everyone raved about the food's flavor for months afterward!

I have worked with Silver Service Caterers on a number of events. One event was a large birthday party and the second was a fundraising event for a local non-profit. What impressed me the most was the quality of the food, the creativity of the presentation, the flexibility in dealing with changes that always occur, and her professionalism. I cannot stress enough what a pleasure it was to work with KJ Jordan - always on time, providing service at the highest level, and always focusing on the client's needs. And of course, the bottom line was that everyone loved the food! I cannot think of one thing I would change. And I will definitely use Silver Service Caterers again and again!

Easter Party for 100 with an elaborate menu of pastas, sandwiches, and a chocolate fountain. The second time we have used Patrick because his food is always fabulous. We could have used more staff with this event to keep trays full and tables clean, which led to Patrick being a bit stretched, but he managed well in spite of it and always keeps his cool. He has a wonderful even non-stressed personality.

Everyone was amazed at how lovely everything looked. She had the table arranged with different heights, it was stunning. Then the food, it was fabulous. One friend had to leave early and when she got home she called and booked Yummy for an upcoming event. The bar tender was very good. He had the bar set up so to make drinks very quickly. Wish my husband could make a chocolate martini like the ones served at the party!!! We will diffintely use Yummy again!! And recommend them to our friends.

    Kim is good spirited, pleasant, and professional. I have used her for three occasions in the past year. 1 dinner party and two holidays. She has never disappointed me. Just when I think I've tasted some of the best food ever she outdoes herself again. Her presentation is impeccable and her food is amazing. Thank you Kim for everything and will be using you in the future as always.

    I was at an event that was catered by the good life kitchen the food was excellent, very fresh, colorful So pretty to look at and the taste was out of this world. I have also picked up food from there to go and have eaten there many times. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable when it ces to special needs and diets like gluten free, I have had the gluten free lentil kale and sweet potato stew and even though I am not a big fan of lentils this stew is do sweet and tasty I must recommend it. The best sandwich is the turkey melt with a delissious secret sauce you just absolutely have to try. They also have the freshest salads in town made right in front of you not to forget the fresh made salad dressings. They also serve egg and tuna salad freshly made and you just can not get that everywhere. A great selection of healthy and unusual drinks are offered . You can dine in or have a party in a clean and bright dining room. The kitchen bares no secrets it is for all to see all in all a wonderful place where everyone is treated like family come and check it out.

    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.

      My name is Janie Elisabeth Beck, Nik's Catering Catered my wedding. I was in need of some one who understood my needs and my tight budget. I didn't have much in the way of a budget. Nik's catering worked with my budget and the food was amazing. We did a self service buffet style cuisine. Nicole suggested Italian because it was cheap and we could get more for our money. I came to Nicole through My best friend Marilyn Watt Nicole is her daughter and she thought that she could help me. Three months prior to my wedding I sat down with Nicole and we went through some sample menus that she prepared for me and how many people I was expecting and set up a few tastings to sample some of the foods to make our final decisions. The day of the wedding things were a little hectic but once the people arrived and the vows were said we all settled up for a party. When we got to the reception hall the tables were set and the food was ready and every thing was good. I was most impressed with the quality of services that Nik's catering provided with a budget of six hundred dollars I fell like I got service of some one who spent thousands. with everything that I got for the services I was extremely happy with the services Nik's catering offered and would use thier services in the future.

      Harvey's brought their cart to my husband's 50th birthday surprise party. They came highly recommended by a friend and they did not disappoint. Harvey and Dorothy were very easy to work with and our guests enjoyed the variety of menu choices to pick from. Having the cart was a fun and unique addition to the party! I did not have to worry about preparing the food or cleaning it up...they were very organized, had delicious food and confidently handled our crowd!

      80th Birthday party for 20 people! The food was great and had lots of it! Michael took care of every detail. We loved the punch fountain and birthday cake! He gave us recipes for some items he made, so you know it was good, if we asked for recipes! And price was right!

      My last year birthday party was catered by worth the wait and the food was excellent and it was more than enough for all of my guests. Worth the wait will also be catering my graduation party because the food was just that amazing. I also love the presentation of the food choices because they look so good. Worth the wait is definitely a quality business that I will use for all of my major events for now and for years to come!!!

      My close friends and I had put together a Super Bowl party up in Williamsburg. The idea of getting it catered seemed to spark with everyone. I called Cassie and told her what the budget was. She said, "I'll put something together for you!" The Moe's crew was incredibly punctual and professional. The spread was AMAZING! Thanks to Cassie, we will be locking her down for every large party we throw together! I'm just mad that the football season ended, and we are just now trying this. Excellent work, Cassie! You are the BEST!
