    Great food!

    The food was absolutely amazing! It felt more upscale than normal 'wedding food'! Our guests even made comments to us about how good the dinner was. Sue & the entire staff were very professional & responsive. We couldn't ask for a better company to work with on our wedding day! We had asked that they save a hors d'oeuvres for us & not only did they do that, they delivered them out to us during our sunset pictures!!!

    Straight to the Plate Catering's reply:

    Jenna, we're delighted that you and Andy were so pleased with our catering services! Thank you for letting us know! It was delightful to get to know both of you and it was our pleasure to be a part of your Wedding and First Meal as a New Family! We wish you both all the best and much joy! All the best, Sue and Team

    Great Flexibility, Excellent Food!

    Because of Covid we had to reschedule the wedding and completely change the menu for a different time of year and different venue, and Sue at Straight to the Plate was extremely flexible and helpful! Delicious food and great service. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

    Straight to the Plate Catering's reply:

    Hi Anna! Thank you so much for asking us to be a part of the celebration! We're delighted you enjoyed our Thanksgiving inspired menu and our services! As a family-owned business, especially during COVID, your review means a lot to us and our team! Thank you for taking the time to review us and for the very kind words! Happy Holidays and many blessings to you and your family!

    5 stars for straight to the plate!

    Sue and her crew are amazing! We had a post-wedding celebration in our backyard last weekend. Entertaining with all of the new guidelines is a little daunting, but Straight to the Plate didn’t miss a beat. We came up with an idea of stretching out the party over a longer period of time with smaller groups assigned to specific time slots. Sue and her chef were super flexible and figured out how to serve the food so it was delicious, hot, fresh and creatively presented. The servers were delightful. We highly recommend Straight to the Plate!

    Straight to the Plate Catering's reply:

    Margaret, thank you for the review and letting our team know how much you enjoyed our services! It was our absolute pleasure to be a part of your family's celebration and to partner with you to make the celebration happen safely while giving a great guest experience! Thank. you again and stay well! Sue and Team

There is no better choice when it comes to catering than Straight to the Plate! They know how to deliver flavors and delicious bites your guests will definitely remember as their scrumptious menu goes far beyond what other caterer's provide, not to mention simply how amazing their service is in any situation. I have never seen a company that wants to please their customers more than this one!

I have worked with Sue and Straight to the Plate Catering at several events. I am always impressed with her food and her service. I am always excited to see what she prepares and how she serves it. I am always amazed at what she comes up with. The food always tastes amazing. I enjoy Sue and her food so much that she is who I will be using for my own wedding.
