SMS did a marvelous job catering our wedding on May 20, 2017! We were a little apprehensive about booking them, considering they don't offer tastings, but we trusted our gut feelings.......and, wow!!! The food was delicious! Our buffet menu consisted of grilled chicken and brisket, with side choices of red potatoes, green beans, and salad. They also catered the cocktail hour for us, as we hired their bartenders to serve our beer and wine. Days after the wedding, our guests couldn't stop talking about the food and great it was! The staff was so accommodating, being that we made changes to the menu up until 4 days before the wedding! We would highly recommend their services to any couple that wants a good, home-cooked memorable meal for their guests to enjoy.......we sure did !!!

From the very first meeting, we knew SMS was the catering service for us. On the day of the wedding, the food was prompt and delicious, and everyone loved it! They are very professional and really know their catering! I would suggest SMS to anyone.

Absolutely phenomenal. I found SMS when my original caterer tried to swindle me. SMS always treated me with respect and listened to exactly what we wanted for our Rehearsal Dinner and Reception, we felt like family. They showed up almost an hour earlier than they originally planned on to my Rehearsal Dinner to make sure everything was right and treated my family wonderfully. Our guests continue to talk about how wonderful the food and service was throughout cocktail hour and the reception. I cannot say enough about how pleased I am with SMS and how amazing their food was! We did a whole pig roast and the presentation itself was spectacular, they made it look wedding appropriate if you can believe that. We would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking for quality food and service! Thank you for everything! -Hannah and Mike
