    Amazing food and wonderful to work with!

    We used Continental Catering for our 58-person wedding in February 2022, and I can't recommend them enough. They were honestly one of the main reasons we went with our venue; they have an exclusive contract with Continental, and we were so impressed by the food. It was SO delicious. Our guests couldn't stop raving about the food. They were also just wonderful to work with. Kristin in particular was fantastic. They were flexible, accommodating, and kind. They went above and beyond to help make my wedding perfect. Thank you!!!

    Hire Them!

    Highly recommend Continental Catering! They were the best price and SOO flexible. Christie went above and beyond as a catering service offering their expertise and solutions outside of catering, and so flexible with all the changes they have. We couldn't find a time that worked for a second tastings and Christie personally delivered the food to my house! Their food was amazing as well, and our guests even went out of their way to let us know.
