Loved our Wedding Meal!!

Distinctive Catering catered our Welcome BBQ and our Wedding Reception. The food at both was AMAZING! Our guests couldn't stop raving about it. My 4-year old niece at four ears of corn bc they were so delicious. We also used their bartending service - perfection! Such a good value! Everyone was friendly and professional and barely needed anything from me (a real plus for a bride on her wedding day!). I would recommend them again and again!

Great service!

We used Distinctive Catering for our bar services at our wedding and it was phenomenal! The communication was quick & efficient. The day of service was great! The two bartenders were incredibly friendly, quick to make drinks so the line was never long. I would definitely recommend Distinctive Catering.

Great Caterer!!!

Distinctive Catering is awesome! I hired them as a vendor for my wedding. Exceptional service, hors d’oeuvres were outstanding (our guest couldn’t stop raving about them), and dinner was amazing! Only thing issue I had with the food was some (a couple pieces) chicken was dry and some pieces of beef was tough. Still VERY pleased with this vendor!
