Outstanding! The staff was very helpful and flexible when a few minor bumps happened at the reception(not anything to do with them) and the food was SO AMAZING!! GREAT VALUE! My husband and I searched several caterers and old carolina was over half the cost of other caterers. Everyone is till ranting about how good the food was! We made the right choice!

They have the best food around! I had family and friends from a bunch of different states with different back rounds. Everyone LOVED the food. I had compliments saying it was the best food they ever had. I was very impressed with all the service. They set up great & took care of the cake cutting for me. Leslie Ann was amazing to work with. She was very helpful from the beginning and answered all my questions right away.

We had old Carolina barbecue cater wedding and couldn't be happier about our decision. Everyone couldn't stop talking about the food! Workers were extremely friendly and professional. We paid a little extra for the package and it was worth every penny. They took care of tables chairs linens plates silverware cake table and etc we didnt have to worry about anything! Highly recommended!!

Old Carolina did my wedding this weekend and the were just awesome. I got so many compliments on the food and the service. They did an awesome job of continually picking up empty plates and glasses to keep the table looking nice, I had many guests tell me that they were very sweet to them while also being "unobtrusive." The venue I used was not full service, so at the end of the night the Old Carolina staff helped me gather up all the decorations and things that I needed to take home with me so my bridal party could leave quickly and not spend a lot of time cleaning up. The day can not have ran smoother.

The company they work with for linen and place setting rentals has a ton of options, and they take care of lining up all of that so all you have to do is pick your styles!

I love, love, loved that they went to my venue the night before and put down all the linens so my bridesmaids and I could set up our homemade centerpieces before the rehearsal and not have anything to worry about or have to rush around the day of the wedding.

Leslianne is also great to work with. She responded quickly to my emails, was always on time for meetings (even if I wasn't, haha), and made sure I had everything I asked for, even when I changed linen colors and added extra rentals only one week out!

I also have to add that the staff at the actual restaurants were very nice as well, when we went in for meetings and to drop off contracts or checks. Always offered us a free drink...its a little thing but it makes an impression of great customer service.

Overall, fantastic.

Old Carolina Barbecue was a real crow-pleaser at our wedding, and I'm so glad we chose them to be our caterer. The catering coordinator was easy to work with, and was willing to work with us to provide exactly what we wanted. To accommodate our vegetarian friends, they were willing to prepare a few side dishes without meat, as well. After looking at a couple other catering options that would have really put a strain on our budget, my fiancee and I agreed that not only was Old Carolina the best best value, but the food tasted the best, too.

The day of the wedding, the staff arrived in plenty of time to set up and they were ready to go right on time. They were courteous, efficient, and cleaned up everything with all of the leftovers neatly packaged for us to take home. The food was hot, flavorful, and there was plenty for everyone. We chose to upgrade the table service (plates, silverware, etc.) so that dinner felt more like a sit-down meal than a backyard barbecue.

We are so glad we chose Old Carolina Barbecue for our summer wedding!

Simply put, I have absolutely no complaints. This is some of the best service I have ever received anywhere. From planning to executing service, Old Carolina surpassed my expectations and made this wedding process a piece of cake (pun intended). We would use Old Carolina again to cater anytime and highly recommend them. I was really taken aback at the serving staffs' terrific personality, smiles, professionalism, and how genuinely sweet they are. They my wedding night wonderful and were everything I could have hoped for, as a bride! Thank you!

Catered the rehearsal dinner the night before our son and daughter-in-law's wedding. Everyone raved about the food. Generous portions , nice presentation, attentive and professional staff. Made the event very nice. LeslieAnne was so easy to work with, and came through for us. Would definitely use them again. Also thought they were priced reasonably.

I had the pleasure of working with Roberta for the initial planning ,and Leslieanne for the final few weeks before my wedding reception. Both women made themselves readily available when I needed to get in contact with them, and were incredibly reliable and professional. Old Carolina's catering is so affordable, and flexible, I couldn't have asked for better service. All my guests raved about the food, and the staff was patient, professional, and friendly. I would not hesitate to recommend Old Carolina to friends and family for any future catering.
