    Skipjack did a wonderful job catering our wedding! Donny, the chef, was very friendly, flexible, and accommodating. He stayed in contact with us throughout our wedding planning and was always willing to meet with us if we needed. Everything went smoothly on the day of and the food was beyond delicious (especially the salmon) ! Donny's staff was great too, making sure that the groom and I had enough food/drinks, and did a great job cleaning up cups, plates, bottles etc. The only small issue we had was that the bar tender did not stay during the whole event (though our event was >6 hrs). Overall, I would recommend Skipjack in an instance!

    Donny came to cater our 10 year wedding renewal and did a fabulous job. The food was delicious and hot and had generous portions. He paid attention to detail right down to rolled silverware in the colors of my event. Cleaned up wasn't in the way and was very accommodating for the children and allergies in the group!!! I highly recommend Skipjack to cater your event! You will not be sorry!!
