What can I say about Joel’s Catering, expect five star food and service. We booked Joel’s for our wedding and the food was amazeballs. The late night round of mini corndogs was a perfect way to end an evening of dancing at a wedding.Sent on 12/02/2015
I can honestly say Joel’s Catering was the best wedding food I ever had. The staff was very professional and did an excellent job with serving our guests. One of the many compliments of the evening from our guest was the quality of the food. I would recommend Joel’s Catering to anyone that was looking for catering.

The food was great! Seasoned, hot, and just right! The bars and bartenders keeping the guest cups and hands filled! Megan was very helpful and easy to get in touch with! She made sure everything was just as we planned. Their corn& shrimp soup is amazing, the bacon wrapped shrimp, and the shrimp on a cheddar biscuit were my favorites. Everyone talked about how plentiful and how great the food was at our wedding . My dad loved the oysters, beef, and andouille sausage !!Sent on 09/24/2015

I just have to say Megan is the best! Working with her is more like working with a friend as opposed to a catering manager. She takes care of everything and takes so much of the stress off of you. Especially towards the end I would email numerous changes and she handled it like a pro. She made the whole experience memorable and ran smoothly. Oh yeah the food was amazing! Don't pass up on the oysters with the cheese and the bbq shrimp on a cheddar biscuit! Those were the hits of our night!Sent on 08/30/2015
