My wife and I loved working with Old Carolina! The service we received far surpassed our expectations. We live in MD and were planning our wedding in Ohio. Brooke was extremely flexible and was able to meet with us on the weekends, was extremely responsive to our emails and calls, and even connected us with other vendors in the area! On our wedding day she was there extremely early making sure that everything was set up perfectly for our reception. We had appetizers from other restaurants and she coordinated with them to make sure everything went smoothly. The food was also delicious!

Excellent Service, Excellent Food!
My daughter loves anything and everything barbecue, so when we saw Old Carolina Barbecue on the preferred vendor list at our wedding venue, we were eager to give them a try. Leslianne was a dream to work with, so professional and responsive. She invited us to a taste-testing evening, and once we tried the food, we were completely hooked. We are still receiving compliments about how good the food was five weeks after the wedding. The Old Carolina BBQ team worked together like a well-oiled machine, cheerfully and quickly serving everyone, answering questions, and helping wherever possible. And when dinner was over, they dismantled the buffet so quickly and quietly that nobody even realized they'd done it unless they happened to look over and see that it was gone! We could not have been more pleased with them and will highly recommend them to anyone seeking delicious food, great service and a lot of very happy wedding guests.

Followed through with their word!!
Old Carolina BBQ definitely stepped up and took on a challenge. I has spoken with the catering manager, who no longer works there, about a year and a half prior to my wedding. He made promises, gave us quotes, and we put the deposit down. Then, time goes by, and 2.5 weeks or so before my wedding, I call to confirm the number of people and the final price with them. The staff informed me that the catering manager I had worked with no longer was employed there, they had NO RECORD of our event, and I would have to call back to speak with upper management. After some internal freaking out, I spoke with Mark, the general manager of the store. He was very nice, very helpful, and promised me that he and his team would perform and deliver every promise the previous catering manager had agreed to. I had to admit, I was nervous they were not going to show up the day of. But right on time, Mark, personally came to work my event, and his team arrived and began working right away. They were professional, the food was delicious, and lived up to all my exceptions. Thank you for being awesome and setting up, Old Carolina BBQ!!
We have had Old Carolina at the Whetstone Conference and Event Center for graduation parties and weddings! Wonderful food and wonderful service. Their team always comes prepared with hot and delicious food!
