We loved MOI!

Our wedding planner, Jennifer, highly recommended Middle of the Island! Throughout the process, they were so flexible with us. We had the best time at our food tasting and found the perfect menu for us! We chose the grilled cheese + tomato soup and the bacon-wrapped scallops for our appetizers, and the Island Variety Buffett with Salmon for our wedding!
All of our guests LOVED the food and we got leftovers to take home! The servers were great and we were so thankful for their help with pre-bussing tables and keeping the venue clean. No one left the venue hungry and we have received so many compliments about MOI's service and food!

MOI Catering - Delicious Food, Exceptional Service, and Great Value

I cannot express enough how thrilled my spouse and i were with Middle of the Island Catering for our wedding festivities. We had the pleasure of using their services for both our rehearsal brunch and wedding reception, and they exceeded our expectations in every way.

Let's start with the star of the show - the food. The variety of options available allowed us to customize our menu to suit our preferences and dietary needs, and the quality of ingredients truly shone through. Our guests are still talking about how good the food was nearly 3 months later!

The service provided by their team was equally impressive. From the initial consultation to the day of our event, the staff was professional, attentive, and responsive to our needs. They took care of every detail, ensuring that our guests were well taken care of and that the flow of the event was seamless.

Their delicious food, exceptional service, and reasonable pricing make them a top choice for anyone looking to host a catered event. We can't thank them enough for their part in creating such a wonderful experience for us and our guests.
