    Outstanding

    Gary took care of us upon the first phone call. He not only helped with his own catering company he helped me find flowers and a cake quickly. He provided chairs for our destination beach wedding. The food was spectacular as was the service. I would give this company 10 stars. We will definitely be back for more events. Thank you for making our special day so amazing.

    Delicious Food, Attractive Display and Great Staff

    Emerald Coast Catering was wonderful! First, they have menu choices that are so delicious. The bride chose them for the wedding reception and I chose them for a brunch the following morning. We did not repeat any items and all were delicious, and served beautifully. Gary responds very quickly to any concerns and questions. They provide everything they need, you just provide a space. The team gathers dirty dishes and trash constantly, yet inconspicuously, to keep everything looking nice throughout the meal or party.
    But I must repeat, the food was delicious. When they left, you couldn't tell that they had been there, except for the satisfied guests.

    Worry Free

    Gary and his team at Emerald Coast Catering made our wedding catering worry free. He made suggestions that were spot on and we had so many guests compliment us on the food and beverage quality, choices, and service. They also catered our brunch the next morning and it was perfect. If you want a stress free event, Gary’s your guy.
