Absolutely Amazing!

We booked EAT Catering for our wedding and loved them! The food is amazing and the team of people are so so sweet and caring. Shelia and her team will make you feel so special and we loved the picnic basket they packed for us to take home after the wedding. Shelia was there to answer any and all questions we had throughout the whole process. We did a Buffett for our catering and the food was hot from the first person being served all the way to the last! The steak and chicken were cooked perfectly and we keep receiving compliments from our guest about how great all of it tasted!

Best Value, Best Caterer! 100% Recommend!

My husband, family, friends, and I are still talking about how amazing EAT Catering was at our wedding. From the food to the service, they are 10 out of 10. In addition to passed appetizers, we did a buffet style dinner, mac & cheese bar, and a plated salad to start, and it couldn’t have worked out better. Cocktail hour and dinner went so smoothly, and everyone loved the food. We had a couple people tell us they kept going up for more! The process from the initial tasting, to booking to final decisions to wedding day was so easy. I worked with Sheila mostly, and she was a pleasure to correspond with and always had a smile on her face while at the wedding. All the servers and bartenders were attentive and professional. My husband and I also liked that we could provide our own alcohol and EAT Catering had a mixer package, so we didn’t have to worry about all the little ingredients. I gave the recipes for our 3 signature drinks and let them know what liquor we got, and they took care of the rest. The drinks were all so good too! We had a guest count of about 90 and there was plenty of food for everyone plus leftovers, which were enjoyed as after wedding late night snacks and for a couple meals the next few days! We learned pretty quickly that catering costs can get quite high, EAT Catering has very reasonable prices and many different options to fit most budgets and when you take into account the quality of the food, service and experience, it’s one of the best values out there. After the wedding, my husband said, “can we have EAT Catering cater every single event from now on?” 100% recommend!

Sheila is the Best!

From the initial tasting to the final plate of food served at the wedding, Sheila and her staff at EAT Catering were nothing short of AMAZING! We cannot recommend them enough! They were greatly accommodating to any dietary restriction we had, and the friendliness and professionalism of the serving staff rivals top tier restaurants. If you are considering using EAT Catering for your wedding, DO IT!
