    Carefree Catering makes your gathering Care Free......

    Carol Shepherd, owner of CareFree Catering, was one of the nicest, most conscientious, professional people I have ever done business with. Not only was the food delicious, both vegetarian and regular, the staff was so professional and fun to be around they help make one of the greatest days in my life, perfect. I am the father of the bride. I had 12 people want the recipe for the meatballs on the appetizer table. My daughter and now son in law live in Pennsylvania, so my wife and I had to do all the leg work here in Florida. We interviewed 3 caterers. Care free was right in the middle price wise, but over the top in actual service. Although my daughter picked 90 % of what they wanted, Carol knew so many little things we just wouldn't have thought of to make it perfect. They were very flexible and very help full. The place settings were beautiful. Every thing was on time, complete,they missed nothing. We couldn't be happier with Carol and her amazing staff. I will never hire any one else for anything catering related and will highly recommend these fine people to any else. They made one of the greatest days in our families history, perfect, beautiful and tasty.. Thanks Carol..Lee, Bonnie,Jenn and Sam.

    Carol and Gary and their team did an awesome job for our son's wedding renewal and party at our home pool side. Carol is a dream to work with as she is so helpful and full of great ideas. Their prices are so reasonable especially when you take into consideration everything they give you for the price of the dinner! Carol even was able to provide some of the table centerpieces that I needed, saving me a lot of money. My tables were beautiful and the linens they provided were perfect for our beachside pool side wedding. The food was amazing! We had 40 guests and not only did everyone have more than plenty to eat but everyone couldn't stop talking about how delicious all of the food was. The beef tenderloin was out of this world and beautifully carved for each guest. I would highly recommend the beef tenderloin if you want a delicious and beautiful dinner. The chicken picata, rice, ceaser salad, and roasted Brussels sprouts were also amazing! Not too many people would ever think of serving roasted Brussels sprouts but I'm so glad I did as not only did it look beautiful on the plate but everyone, even those that don't like Brussels sprouts raved about it! We also used their bar tender and she did an amazing job! Carol and her staff serving our dinner and party were so professional and friendly to all of our guests! I only wish we had another party to hold so I could use Carefeee Catering again! I highly recommend them for any venue you may be hosting, but especially a wedding. They also have many recommendations for other vendors you may need. We had a wonderful wedding and party and it could not have been done without them! My deep gratitude to Gary for cooking such an amazing dinner and putting up with all of my requests! Thank you to all at Carefeee Catering!
