Amazing Food!!

First of all, Chef Dale is an amazing human being. We truly enjoyed talking with him and working with him. Also, his food is INCREDIBLE. We received so many compliments on how awesome the food was, and our coordinator told us that we had a lot less food left over than they usually do, so you know everyone enjoyed it :) Chef Dale can make everything and anything you could want. We had tacos, pierogies, cabbage rolls, flank steak, gourmet mac n cheese, salad, roasted vegetables, roasted red pepper soup shots with mini grilled cheese for appetizers, butternut squash arancini balls, BBQ chicken and plain cheese pizza, and warm apple crisp with ice cream for dessert. We did a small ceremonial cake just for pictures too, but it was also quite delicious (and I am not a dessert/ cake person typically). Chef's staff were all really great, and even working with his administrative staff was super easy. We would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a caterer that your guests will rave about!

The Best Decision You Could Make!

Fish Hawk Acres was easily the best decision we made for our wedding (other than each other of course). Their staff was phenomenal, both during the planning process and the wedding itself. Chef Dale took the time to really understand what our tastes were and develop a menu that fit us! Our tasting was a highlight of the planning process because Fish Hawk Acres worked very hard to make sure we really loved the food at our wedding. Chef Dale is so kind and we could really tell how much he cared about us and our wedding. So many of our guests made a point to tell us that it was the best wedding food they had ever had. Everything Fish Hawk made us was delicious and we wish we could have it everyday!
