Chesapeake Charities - Terrific!
Chesapeake Charities has delicious food and beautiful presentation. They prepare a wide range of food depending on your taste and budget restrictions. They are very professional, friendly, and accommodating. I look forward to hiring them again for another catering event. I have already recommended them to others.Sent on 05/03/2019

Excellent customer service
My fiance and I were looking at this as out caterer for our wedding. The customer service and responsiveness to our questions was quick and friendly. This caterer would have been a great choice if my fiance and I hadn't chosen to go with a destination wedding instead!Sent on 02/06/2019
Chesapeake Celebrations's reply:Thank you Jacqueline, sorry we're not going to be a part of your Big Day but having a destination wedding sounds AWESOME!!

This is your caterer!
Overall Experience: It started with an amazing tasting experience on Eastern Shore that was almost as memorable as the final menu. The memories of the wedding started here, as each dish that was served to us was better than the last. We had no trouble finalizing the menu on the spot, but you will have plenty of time to make modifications.Sent on 09/25/2019
We planned a 175+ person formal wedding in less than 9 months and changed venues mid-planning. Chesapeake Celebrations helped us every step of the way. In addition to the menu, they assisted us with securing a second venue (ours was too small once we reached 150). We required more tables, chairs, linens, cocktail party tables, plates, utensils, bar, bar staff, everything! Our venue was a blank slate, so we needed it all. They coordinated directly with the venue, which saved us so much time.
Chesapeake Celebrations is a full service caterer and coordinator. Kim helped us to develop the timeline and kept the trains running on time. She knew every task that needed attention and she was truly an asset to the bride. We never felt like there were any hidden fees. Everything was discussed and addressed. If anything, they need to charge more for their services.
They even cut the cake without charging us extra. Some places wanted a dollar or two a person (if you can believe that!), so we saved several hundred dollars on that alone. They even handled the set-up of tables, break-down, and venue clean-up. Unbelievable service!
Wedding Food & Staff: The Teriyaki Meatballs was a huge hit! Beautiful cheese, fruit, and cracker display during cocktail hour was perfect. For dinner, we had the most savory Chicken Chesapeake paired perfectly with med-rare Prime Rib. Even folks who normally like meat well-done thought this was the most perfectly cooked beef. Our sides included fresh garlic asparagus and the BEST au gratin potatoes on- the- planet! There were other things served at the table (salad, rolls, etc.), but the main attraction was that prime rib and chicken.
Bridal Shower Food- The bridal shower food was equally specular. A simple, yet elegant spread of finger sandwiches, shrimp salad, cold salads, fruit (on theme with our tropical décor with a palm tree made out of pineapples and palm leaves). She dropped everything off an hour before the event and came back 30 minutes prior to wrapping up, just as we requested.
Everything at the wedding and shower was fresh, bright-colored, appropriately hot or cold, and always eloquently displayed. We were able to customize everything, even the drinks and beers we served. We had lemonade, iced tea; soda, juices… whatever you want, and they can serve it.
We would be remiss if we didn’t mention the support staff- wow! They really care about your guests. The bartenders were the absolute BEST. They really stood out because they interacted appropriately with guests and made everyone smile. We will definitely hire them for our Christmas and summer pool parties.
The entire experience with Chesapeake Celebrations far exceeded any expectation we had going into this event. Kim is so much more than a caterer, she is an exceptional problem solver, listener, and has the ability to translate your vision into a beautiful reality without breaking the bank. She is going to work with you and give you numerous options to fit your budget. You can go as sophisticated as black-tie or as casual as a BBQ. Kim and Kevin take great pride in their work and I cannot wait to work with them again!
Everything was very professional and my client and all their guests were impressed with the quality of the food. I highly recommend It's The Pits for your event, big or small.
