    Delicious food, excellent price!

    The food that lighthouse catering provided was great! Everyone enjoyed the food and commented on its uniqueness. We worked with Dawn and she was very quick at responding to my emails and sending us invoices...etc The only thing that was a negative for me was that they didnt provide us with serving utensils for all of the food. There was fruit and cheese cubes but nothing to serve it with. They didnt let me know about that or I could have brought something out to serve with. Other than that it was an excellent experience! They showed up in time and had no problem coming back to retrieve their dishes...etc
