    Amazing food, and service

    I used Dad's catering for my wedding of 100 guest and had rib eye steak, chicken picotta, side salad, spring veggies, rolls, tea, lemonade. Also had chicken nuggets and mac and cheese and corn for the kids. Our guest could not say enough about how great the food was. The pricing was extremely reasonable. I would use them for any gatherings that we have. I called the night before and left a frantic message that we had people call and say they were coming the day before our wedding. I got a call the next day saying that it was all covered not to worry.

    Exceptional food and services

    From the food tasting to our wedding day, the service from Dad's Catering was exceptional. The food was delicious and there were so many options to choose from! Multiple guests at the wedding told me how much they enjoyed their dinner. Both the food service and bartending service at our wedding was quick, friendly, and professional. We highly recommend Dad's Catering.
