A Perfect Experience!

We hired a wedding planner and Sharky’s for catering. Our wedding planner ghosted us, but Amanda Foster and her team jumped right in and took care of all the set up for our wedding reception. When it started drizzling, the ladies took charge of setting up our large tents!
I cannot express how lucky we were to have them on site! The ladies smiled and were super polite, while they were doing someone else’s work! The food-from appetizers, dinner, and dessert bar, was fantastic, and our guests raved about it! What could have been a nightmare for us turned into a beautiful experience that we will always treasure!

Sharky's catering staff and food made our wedding successful!!

Our son's wedding was held on the beach in May and Sharky's catered the event. From the very beginning all contact with Amanda ,our coordinator, was very easy. She communicated with me every step of the way. In the beginning doing this from afar had me a little nervous but Amanda was fantastic. The set up crew and severs were all great and best of all the food was fantastic and plentiful. I highly recommend them for any event. Should we ever find ourselves back in Florida needing a catering company they will be my first call.
