    Best Caterer!

    The whole team at Ivy's is wonderful. They are responsive, helpful, and kind. I worked closely with Karen who always took my phone calls and answered emails with kindness and thoughtfulness. My husband and I planned most of our wedding, but Karen and the Ivy's team helped bring everything together. They are more than a caterer!

    The custom menu was so unique and excited us. No other vendor was willing to work with us on such a personal level. We received so many compliments from guests about the food, which paired well with our fall wedding and venue. We also told Ivy's that we did not want the traditional wedding cake, they worked with a local vendor to supply pies, which again, our guests loved.

    There were menu customizations, tastings, checklists, and walkthroughs all provided before the wedding day. On the day of our wedding, the staff at Ivy's helped organize and direct our guests, they were attendant to my family and wedding party and always made sure we had what we needed. I would highly recommend Ivy's Simply Homemade and if I have another party/event to plan, I'd love to partner with them again.

    Any wedding, independent of venue or size, requires a catering service that is highly skilled, efficient and able to give exceptional quality. Ivy , Karen and the entire team, from the early planning stage through completion, gave us a wonderful experience. We give them all our highest praise. Brian and Pam, parents of the bride

    Simply amazing!

    Ivy's Homemade was everything we were looking for in a catering company. After looking into several local catering company's we knew hands down Ivys fit our budget, menu dreams and needs. Ivy, Sophia, Brook and all the team members were able to help us put together a wonderful, delicious menu for all 3 of our events. We used Ivy's for our wedding weekend including rehearsal dinner, brunch and reception! Its almost a month later and we have family and friends still commenting on how good it was. We couldn't have asked for better service, food, organization and helpful friendly faces!
    P.s. We also love to stop in to the shop on a busy night to grab a pre-made meal to go and pop in the oven.
