My family has been using Claey's for years for company parties to family events so for me it wasn't even a question who we would use on our wedding day. My husband really wanted a German themed dinner for our wedding and Claey's was all on board. The food was perfect and everyone loved it.Sent on 12/10/2019

AMAZING! I cannot say enough great things about Claeys Catering. You will not be disappointed, hire them for ANY catering event. They have done several events for us and most recently our wedding. Everyone is still talking about our food! They are the most kind people to work with, very organized, excellent communication from start to finish. But most importantly- the food... everything they do is just FABULOUS. From salads to desserts, everything I’ve tasted is amazing. They are an extremely talented group of people. Don’t hesitate to use them, they do not disappoint. Overall, an excellent company all around!Sent on 10/02/2019

Honestly I cant say enough good things about Claey's; if I could give more than 5 stars for quality of service I would, they deserve at least 10. Jim and Nathan are wonderful (I'm sure everyone else is too but I only had direct contact with them) and really really go out of the way to work with you and aid if needed - my parents were originally going to pickup the catering and bring it with them but the containers were larger than expected and wouldn't fit both on top of my parents Escape, so Jim (I was having my makeup done when they arrived so I'm 90% sure is was Jim) followed them up to the location in a truck to make sure the food got there on time (my parents however would not tell me if there was an additional cost to this). The food itself was a hit, so convenient and delish and plated beautifully, I got little picnic tents to keep the bugs out and they didn't bat an eye at me asking for specific plates sizes. Definitely coming to them for catering in the future - though next time I'll make sure a truck is taken to transport anything :), thank you Claeys for helping my wedding run so smoothly!!!Sent on 08/14/2018
One of my absolute favorite partners in the industry. I love any opportunity that I have to work with this incredibly talented team and refer them to all of my clients! They have exemplary service from start to finish; their food is truly some of the best that the Portland market offers; and their owner(s) are some of the most genuine folks I've had the pleasure to work with. I look forward to many more opportunities to work together!
We love having Claey's Catering here! They always make the event special and all their delicious food is served beautifully by their happy, energetic staff.
Enjoyed working with Claeys so much....we selected them to cater our daughters wedding reception.
