    Wonderful experience!

    A friend of mine had MOI as their caterer so I already knew I was getting something amazing when we hired them for our wedding. Everything from start to finish was seamless. They are very quick to respond and so easy to work with. During the reception the staff made sure my husband and I had full plates and everything we needed. We got the cheese and fruit display for cocktail hour and the Wedding Favorite Buffet for dinner. Every one of our guests raved about how good the food was! The price point is very reasonable and there are so many different menus and budgets to work with. I got our dessert from Publix but they still set up and made our dessert bar beautiful. Hire them for an effortless and delicious day!!

We have had the pleasure of eating LOTS of wedding reception food prepared by Middle of the Island Catering over our years of performing weddings.
