    Delicious!!

    Sherri and staff were so professional and the food was absolutely amazing. Everything was just as good as our initial tasting appointment in January. All of the guests commented on how fabulous the food was and Sherri goes above and beyond to ensure the cocktail hour and reception is perfect. Planning a wedding during the pandemic created some last minute changes for us but Sherri was always flexible and willing to help us. We were so happy with our choice to book Olympia and would not have changed a thing!

    Delicious!

    All my guests loved the catered food for our wedding by Olympia Catering. They said that it was not your typical boring wedding food, which is usually lack luster, but that the food was delicious! The tasting was great, and Ms. Sherri Salsbury is truly a gem and helped us so much in choosing our menu! Loved it!
