    I would gladly recommend Nancy to anyone! She was timely, helpful, cheerful and the food was Fabulous. I had so many compliments on it all.

  • 5/5 stars Event Catering (Drop-off) Verified Review

    Needed to cater a real estate event at the last minute and found Extra Hands Catering on-line, along with many other options. Based on her reviews history, Nancy was one of the options I reached out to (on a Saturday, event was on Tuesday). Nancy was the first one to respond with a quote and additional questions to ensure she understood my needs, timing and budget. Throughout Saturday and Sunday she provided examples of lunch options (with pictures). I set a budget per person and she came up with a wonderful spread that was both casual and very professional. She delivered on time, on my budget and provided outstanding food. Have added Nancy and team to our list of trusted partners for future events.

    We have hired Nancy for 2 parties now and highly recommend her. She is conscientious, efficient and such a help!!! I won't have another large party without her. The food she provided for my in-laws' anniversary party was enjoyed by all and very nicely presented. Great find!

    Nancy and her team were great! We hired her for our wedding July 18th and everything happened perfectly without a hitch. All our guests loved her food and the presentation was beautiful! Nancy is very accommodating and easy to work with. Her pricing is very reasonable. I highly recommend her for any event!

    Tasty food. Trying to go for the best receipe

  • 5/5 stars

    Having extra hands catering on hand was what made my party an absolute success. For the first time, I was able to get out of the kitchen and enjoy time with my guests while still having the party in my home and with my food. All I did was show them the food I had made and voila - they were heating it up, serving it, passing it, keeping everything moving smoothly. They took over the bar and I never thought again whether anyone had a drink in hand. When the night was done and I went into my kitchen, all of the dishes were clean, the leftovers packed up and in the fridge and the garbage/bottles put away. I can't begin to tell you how happy that made me. They really have filled a need in the catering space - a set of hands to help out when we still want to host and cook ourselves. Wonderful. We will absolutely be calling on Nancy again.

    Extra Hands Catering were awesome and very professional. I had a cookie bar that looked out of this world. Thanks Nancy

    Nancy was such an asset to our holiday party this year. I actually sat down for the first time in years! From the minute she walked in the door I knew I was in good hands.

    Extra Hands took great care of us. They provided food, service and bartending professionally and cheerfully. We were so disorganized when they arrived and had everything ready to go when the party started. They made the difference.

    I have hired Nancy and her crew for my annual holiday party the last five years. I provide the food - they set it up, make it look good, keep all the platters full, circulate with hot food and clean up while the party is still going so my guests can stay as long as they like and I don't have a mess at the end. They are also very personable with the guests - I get lots of compliments about them. I recommend them highly.

    I carried in food and supplies for a buffet. I'd asked them to help setting up the presentation and with final food preparation. Helpers worked hard and once I explained my idea for set up and what needed to be done they took over. Once set up was done, I didn't have to do any more 'work'. They took over. I hadn't asked them to but they bussed tables, did the dishes and packed up supplies for me to take home. Friendly and helpful.

    Nancy and her crew took all the stress out of our event. They showed up as scheduled and took us from chaos into a great party. They are my go-to.

    I hired Nancy to cater a Celebration of Life event and was extremely happy with her and her staff member. The food items that I selected were perfect and well displayed. The pricing per person was perfect for the food and service rendered. I would highly recommend Extra Hands Catering for any event.

    Nancy came and helped with service at my daughter's engagement party. She came in and started organizing, made drinks, served food, and left the kitchen clean. Great job!

  • 5/5 stars Event Catering (Full Service) Verified Review

    Nancy and her stuff were amazing and from the first meeting she a kind and very helpful. She offered her services that went above and beyond for my wedding. I would recommend her to anyone. The food was so good that guests went back for seconds and thirds!

  • 5/5 stars Event Catering (Full Service) Verified Review

    Nancy was wonderful to work with. We had to pull off a tasteful(no pun intended) event on a tight budget in a short turn around time. Nancy was easy to work with and had wonderful ideas. Our event was a small fundraiser at a private residence. She arrived and took charge of her role in the event leaving the rest of us to focus on setting up. It was wonderful. Yes- I can highly recommend Extra Hands Catering.

  • 5/5 stars Bartending Verified Review

    Nancy was outstanding!! She came in and picked up where I left off without a beat. The cocktail party went on without a hitch and everyone had a fantastic time-including me. She's awesome!!

  • 1/5 stars Event Catering (Full Service) Verified Review

    Nancy Brown did not complete catering services as requested or agreed to. She didn't supply a contract or receipt for payment. She didn't arrive at our event on the correct date and placed full blame on me, her customer. She did not try to resolve this in a professional manner and we did not use her services or her company for our event. In fact my family and I cooked and served all food for our 80 guests. Would not recommend.

    Nancy B. from Extra Hands Catering replied to this review on December 6, 2013:

    Unfortunetly Lynda supplied us with an incorrect date for her event.
    She stated in her Thumbtack request Sept 14.
    We showed up on that date with all of the food, staff and equipment and no one was home.
    We have several documents to prove we were given that date for the event.
    In an attempt to resolve this issue weasked the client to show us any written proof that shows the event date as Sept 21st.
    To this date they have not provided that.

    We would have been glad to cater their party but they chose to terminate their request for service.

    I highly recommend Nancy Brown as a bartender and also if you need extra help at your event. She was punctual, efficient and a delight to work with. We were very satisfied!

  • 5/5 stars Event Catering (Full Service) Verified Review

    We used Nancy Brown and Extra hands Catering on August 1, 2013 for our son and daughter-in-law's wedding reception. Nancy was a total professional - she made sure I knew in advance what she needed from me to make the event shine and then she took over. The catering table was beautiful. We were allowed to visit with guests and just let Nancy take control. It was a relaxed and magical evening from our point of view. I would hire them again in a heart beat! Truly Exceptional!!

  • 5/5 stars Bartending Verified Review

    She bartended for us and prepared food at a company picnic and looked to make everything look presentable when she saw that we were struggling putting everything out, everything was wonderful and she is a helpful, approachable individual who knows how to do her job well in all situations
