Driftwood Catering was top notch, a breeze to work with, pure professionalism at all times through the planning to the event and even clean up and follow up. I don’t even know where to begin. Lauren P. was WONDERFUL! We planned via phone and email only since I was hundreds of miles away planning an event in PA. With 2 Pinterest photos she nailed how I wanted the tables to look, what meals would fit for my group, recommendations (as I have never planned a wedding and she has done many) on timeline, bread plates or baskets, coffee service, cake served or on the table…all these things I wouldn’t have ever thought of she broke down. With any change or idea, I’d have a new proposal in my inbox, never being kept in the dark of costs. Billing was extremely easy. Then the night of everything the staff was AMAZING! The food was delicious – so many comments on it and not one on it being cold or anything. The night went off without any hiccups. Everyone was so kind and generous, the room looked gorgeous, food was amazing. I left my name plates that showed the type of food the guests were getting back hundreds of miles away at home and without skipping a beat Lauren figured out a plan B and executed it, no issues just went to work. Amazing experience and I will surely be using them and recommending them for any catering needs!Sent on 08/23/2017

The venue for my daughters wedding was Ariel International so when we began our search for a caterer we had to find a company that could prepare the meals on site since we were planning a sit down dinner. After narrowing down our list, we selected Driftwood and I am so glad we did. Catie Hodgson was wonderful to work with! She was flexible, worked with our budget, and responded promptly to all emails and phone calls (even when she was on vacation). The food and service the evening of the wedding were exceptional. The chefs were able to accommodate some guests with special dietary needs on the spot as we were not aware in advance of these requirements. The servers were very attentive to the needs of the guests. To sum it up, we were all very happy with Driftwood and I would definitely recommend them to friends. We plan to visit some of their restaurants in the near future too!Sent on 06/03/2015
They know the definition of service and good food. This company provided services to the owners of Raise the Roof for their wedding. That should sum up our opinion of what they do!
