Definitely recommend East Beach!

Chelsea and her East Beach Catering team were FANTASTIC! First the food was amazing and presented beautifully. Many of our guests commented on how perfectly the food was cooked. The appetizers were a big hit! I hired Chelsea as a wedding coordinator with only a month or two left till the big day. She went above and beyond, understood my vision to a tee, and really helped tie everything together. The wedding was a blast thanks to Chelsea and her team.

Wonderful experience!

We hired Chelsea and the East Beach Catering team for our daughters outdoor wedding in late October and could not be more pleased with the entire experience. From the initial tasting throughout the process of selecting rentals and finalizing menus Chelsea was helpful, accommodating, responsive and just a complete pleasure to work with. Contract terms were fair and reasonable with no hidden or excess costs. The food at our event was hot and delicious and we received many compliments from our guests. We will definitely be using the East Beach team again in the future!

Above and Beyond my expectations!

East Beach Catering is AMAZING!. The guests at my daughters wedding were blown away. I’m still hearing from my guests about how great the appetizers and dinner tasted. It was presented so beautifully. Chelsea is very creative. You can sense she enjoys what she’s does and it reflected in the outcome of the wedding. She made me feel at ease through the whole process of planning the wedding and she was a wealth of information. She’s excellent with communication and kept me on track.. East Beach is full service catering. The entire staff was very professional and friendly. I highly recommend East Beach Catering. I promise you’ll be so happy with their services. So much more than Catering!
