    Classy, delicious and unique

    L.M. Townsend Catering was extremely easy to work with. Lucy was open to my idea of a variety of continuous foods for my wedding reception. I wanted my guests to have a more social meal than a traditional sit down dinner. Lucy has a large variety of foods to choose from that can accommodate any type of event. The day of the wedding a Micro burst tore through the golf course, flipping tables just hours before the reception. Her staff was able and willing to assist the golf course in any way possible. Not only did they help salvage what was left of our beautiful decorations but they helped set them up inside the clubhouse, put together a beautiful food display and provided exceptional service to our guests. I can't praise them enough for what they did WAY ABOVE what I paid them to do. I am forever grateful that I chose L.M. Townsend to cater my wedding. It's been 2 weeks and people are STILL raving about the food from the mac and cheese on edible spoons to the raw bar; and how delicious it was. Thanks Lucy and Staff - You are truly amazing!

    Dinner of Our Dreams!

    For the past nine months, we have emailed and spoken with Lucy frequently as we planned the catering for our April wedding. Lucy was always kind and quick to respond, offering professional advice and continually revising our menu selections per our changes. She worked directly with us, and a few of our vendors, on the layout and rentals for the event. She created a pasta buffet as our dinner, with items everyone could eat and love! She listened to our requests and found ways to incorporate foods we loved into our menus. People are still complimenting our cocktail hour selection and appreciated the variety of beer offered by the craft beer option. Lucy and her staff were attentive and crafted a beautiful meal and evening for us!
