    Good food on time

    We would definitely use them again. They were scheduled to do our rehearsal dinner and with COVID-19, we had them add the wedding dinner for just family as our plans had changed. They were ready and able.

    Nothing but excellence.

    From the very first second, Julie was nothing but ears and attention! Every. Single. Detail. Y’all. Seriously. I cannot say enough about her style, options and ease to work with!! Call her today. Or email her in the middle of the night in desperation for a dependable caterer, like I did, and receive a call from her first thing the very next morning. You won’t be sorry. And be sure to order the smoked Swiss cheese ball!!

    Mermaid Catering's reply:

    Thank you Candy, your event was so much fun! Congratulations again and I wish you much success!

    ~Julie
