    The best catering for any event

    Ryan with Hamby Catering was by far the best vendor to work with throughout our wedding experience! He was extremely professional, responsive, and easy to work with. We used Hamby for our engagement party, rehearsal dinner, and reception! All our guests raved at how delicious and presentable the food was for each event. I thoroughly enjoyed having our tasting to finalize the menu. The servers and chefs at the reception did an exceptional job. We could not have asked for anything more. Ryan is an excellent Hamby employee and I would use Hamby catering hands down for any event!!

    Excellent Service!

    Hamby provided the catering for our wedding last month and we couldn’t recommend them any more! First (and most importantly) the food throughout the entire evening was absolutely fantastic. The catering staff was attentive and very friendly and made sure that we were not wanting for anything the entire night - my wife and I weren’t able to grab any hors d’oeuvres during cocktail hour as we were taking pictures and the catering staff made sure to track us down and provide an entire assortment of food so we didn’t miss out! All-around excellent experience!

    Amazing Food!

    I have had Hamby catering several times in the past and knew the food was going to be fantastic. Ryan and his team did not disappoint! All the food was delicious! We were even sent home with a goody bag of food to enjoy the next day, which is such an amazing touch. I definitely recommend Hamby for all your catering needs.
