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!

lovely, delicious, personalized dinner--thanks to Black-Eyed Susan

From our first conversation until the wedding was over, working with Cynthia was a true pleasure. She is creative, positive, funny, easy-going, and very energetic, and she's brilliant when it comes to all things culinary. She created recipes just for us, and they were wonderful!
