    Outstanding!

    We were thrilled with the overall experience with C&O when they catered our daughter's wedding. They traveled nearly an hour to the venue and the food was perfectly prepared. The overall coordination of team members for setting up the venue, and preparing and serving was perfection.

    Owner Dean and Company are Amazing

    Being honest, we were most worried about the catering for our wedding. We are both foodies, and weddings typically do not have stellar cuisine and it costs a fortune. However, we came across C&O after it was recommended to us. We tried it for dinner, did our tasting and were blown away. Two months prior to the wedding we realized we had to change a food option to accommodate our guests. The owner, Dean, had us come back and was extremely generous in hosting us. The day of the wedding the team of servers, captain, bar tenders and Dean himself were absolutely perfect, things just happened despite our not having a coordinator. To top it off our guests all commented that it was he best wedding food they ever had. Price was very reasonable and if you take into account he quality, a bargain. My wife and I now cant wait to visit Dean and his restaurant at the next opportunity.

    Personalized menu, best meal of our lives!

    Let me start by saying we were difficult customers, picky, had a budget, wanted a vision, changed that vision, etc. etc. And C and O graciously worked with us through it all!

    They created a custom menu of southern inspired faire, that was truly the best meal of our lives. Our guests were GUSHING to us about the food, saying it was THE BEST WEDDING FOOD THEY HAD EVER HAD. And we agree!

    Cristelle was so creative and thoughtful when helping us make the menu. She worked with us when we wanted to make complicated drinks, changes to sides or major aspects of the stations, etc. She was on board and excited for late night food as much as we were! She was a perfect host. Day of, she was attentive, but not overbearing.

    We ate well at our wedding.
