Wedding and Event Catering

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!

Event Catering (Buffet)

We had a welcome home party for our best friends and used mermaid catering. The food and service was amazing!!!! Due to the larger size of the party we requested having a bartender as well. The price was extremely reasonable and allowed me to really enjoy the event. She was very professional and stayed on top of all the timing involved given it was a surprise party. I will be using mermaid catering again and again. Such a success

Everything was fine but it was too expensive for the quality of food used. The people who came to the house were very nice and did the best they could.

I randomly discovered this catering company online, the event was for my Mother's remembrance service, a small gathering, the set up was on time, and quick, everyone complimented on the wraps & sandwiches, the meatballs were yummy too, all utensils were included, Julie was very quick to respond to concerns.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Pricing is based on portions, the cost of the products and preparation times. A custom menu is created for each client.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Our goal is to create an event in the image that the customer has imagined. We will work with their menu requests to find the best possible options within their budget.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Chef and Owner Julie Aubrey has managed restaurants for over 14 years and owned one of the premier event destinations for two years (Pagoda Restaurant). We cater many high end events, such as the Mayor's Gala, Zoo to Do, Sertoma, corporate events and luncheons and private parties/functions as drop offs or full service. We were voted #1 by The Knot magazine and have a great catering reputation. We were just voted "Best Sweets" for our dessert cones by three of the area's top professional food critics!
