    Delicious food and friendly service!

    What can I say - Chef Penelope’s food is unparalleled! Our wedding guests absolutely raved about everything from the southern-inspired appetizers to the entrees down to even the salad dressing. We were able to enjoy leftovers from the wedding for a couple days and everything tasted just as good as it did on the actual wedding day. Planning a wedding during a pandemic with a constantly changing guest count is difficult, but the team at Chef Penelope’s worked with us through all of the iterations of our guest count, making adjustments up until and including the day before our wedding! They were able to package the extra meals as to-go meals for friends and family staying in town and even allocated some of the unused meal funds to extra appetizers for cocktail hour. Every step of the way, the staff was friendly and accommodating. We absolutely would pick them over and over again!

    Amazing Catering Experience!

    My husband and I hired Chef Penelope's Catering for our wedding on 11/13/21. Their team provided an amazing catering experience from our menu tasting all the way until our wedding day! They were communicative and easy to work with throughout the entire planning process. The food was absolutely amazing and exactly what we had hoped for. They let us customize our menu to reflect us as a couple. We were blown away by how beautiful the interactive food stations were presented. The food, the presentation, and the service were all outstanding. Their staff is friendly, polite, and courteous, and made all our guests feel special the entire evening. Our guests were raving about the food and definitely left our wedding happy and satisfied. We highly recommend hiring Chef Penelope's Catering!

    Sad That Five Stars Is the Limit!

    Chef Penelope delivered on top quality in every single category. Truth be told, we knew they were our pick during the tasting trial as soon as we tried their Orange Reisling salad dressing, but they were welcome to keep feeding us after that! ;)

    My husband and I were getting married during the pandemic and that just added to the usual stress brought on by weddings in general. They were reassuring in that they would work with us even though our guest list took a significant and depressing hit.

    Everything was perfect on our day and our guests could not have raved about the food more than they did--dare I say, it even stole the show ;) In addition to that, our guests spoke VERY highly of the staff on sight as well as the bartenders and said they were always super friendly, made great conversations and jokes with our guests all night! We would highly recommend this company to friends in the area looking for catering for any/all events.
