    Most delicious food you will ever have!

    My husband and I choose Blackeyed Susan Catering because of the food selection she offered. We knew that we didn't want the same menu that you get at every other wedding. Blackeyed Susan Catering offers upscale southern food. Cynthia worked with us on exactly what we wanted! Her and her server's were amazing. I had a strange request for her and her servers, wear a masquerade mask while serving my guests. And they did! It turned out wonderful! All of them were super friendly! My guests loved all the food stations! If you want a different, unique food selection for your wedding, you won't be disappointed with Blackeyed Susan Catering!

    A Party in my Mouth

    From planning to execution, the Black-eyed Susan team was 5 star. Head chef and organizer Cynthia was a pleasure to work with and gave needed guidance as to what and how to serve our wedding guests at a Covid-era reception. We enjoyed the seasonal selections and emphasis on fresh and local with artful presentation. Everything tasted amazing-like a party in my mouth. Cynthia was very accommodating and flexible as we finalized our plan. She worked closely with the wedding planner to order appropriate rentals. The wait staff gave excellent service and paid special attention to the bride and groom to make sure they got to enjoy the appetizers and a fully-packed "to go" box. I would highly recommend Black-eyed Susan Catering.
