The job was a surprise Valentine's Day dinner for my wife. The personal chef arrived and was able to answer all my questions either at my house or via email prior to the event. The food was spectacular and I will not hesitate to hire Mermaid Catering again.

Chef Kelly, Chef Lori and their team were amazing. They went above and beyond our expectations. They worked with us to stay within our budget for our wedding, making adjustments along the way. Communication was excellent and the follow up was timely and addressed every detail. The day of our wedding, Hurricane Mathew came to town and the Yummy Goodness Team was up for the challenge. They adapted, they improvised and they overcame in order to make our wedding day the most unforgettable event of our lifetime. The water from the storm came up into the tent, encroaching on the dry land little by little. As time went on the water had taken over most of the area under the tent. By the end of the event, The Yummy Goodness Team was maneuvering through mud and ankle deep water. The bar tenders were serving drinks while standing in 6 inches of water. They never missed a beat. The food and drinks kept coming right up until the predetermined ending time. The Yummy Goodness Team did an excellent job of cleanup and packing leftovers and left the venue in pristine condition. Oh and did I mention the food was incredible ? Planning and executing a wedding is one of the most stressful things we have ever done in our lives. The Yummy Goodness Team helped to reduce our stress and make our wedding an over-the-top event that our 150 guests will never forget. Thank You Yummy Goodness!!!!!

We loved having Kathi's help with our evening meals while my husband was deployed. She helped make our meal plans and organize the grocery needs, she prepped and cooked all meals from start to finish and left my kitchen spotless. She even modified her dishes to meet my vegan/vegetarian lifestyle. She helped us find kid-friendly meal ideas and always made sure they were healthy and varied. We enjoyed all the food she prepared for us and already miss her very much!
