    The best food!

    These people are such a joy to work with. They were able to work with our budget and help us stay very mindful of money. The food was amazing!! We had multiple guests comment on how good the food was! Cory and his wife went above and beyond with our last minute changes and made our special day perfect! We were able to drop off all our alcohol a week prior and they brought it all to the reception. After the reception they put all the leftover alcohol in a cooler for us and packaged all of our food up so it was ready to go. They also have an option to take extra food to the local firehouse which is a neat way to give back to the community. Very honest and hard working people. If you want to be impressed with an amazing meal and service pick the catering place!

    So Much More Than Perfect

    How does a caterer wind up becoming cherished members of your family?!? You hire The Catering Place, that’s how! This brilliant team is the whole package and more!
    We hired them well over a year ago for our daughter and son in law’s October 2020 wedding. We had no idea, other than word of mouth, just how integral and invaluable Cory, Jnel, and his team would become to the whole process. Words cannot adequately express just how appreciative we are.
    They gave us more than the fantastic food you would expect. We also got the benefit of their firsthand knowledge and advice about all things wedding related, some of which has nothing to do with the food. They give you themselves, but in the most down to earth way.
    Our growing trust and love of Cory and Jnel, led to our support for meal purchases during the Pandemic, bridal shower catering, rehearsal dinner catering, and the wedding food! We will miss the constant connection but will forever be connected to supporting their business in any way we can!

    The Catering Place's reply:

    Oh, Sharon! I think this may have been the sweetest message we've received. We look forward to helping you with your next events. Maybe a little Pait baby in the future to shower. :)

    The best catering around

    I have so many praises for the catering place, where do I start?! When we sat down with them to create a menu for the wedding, my fiancé and I asked for sample menus. Corey and Jnel said “you can have anything you want.” We were so excited we got to custom make our own menu for the wedding. We handpicked each item from cocktail hour, to the main course, to the midnight snack. Corey and Jnel are so flexible, and can make literally anything. They are also so friendly and nice to work with, we used them for the bridal shower, the rehearsal dinner, and the wedding! The food was delicious, great quality, and beautiful presentation. We received so many compliments on our wedding food, and I personally cannot compliment the Catering Place enough! We will use them for any catering events we have in the future, and I truly cannot wait to work with them again!

    The Catering Place's reply:

    Thanks Juliette & Kyle!

    You were a pleasure to work with and we hope to help you with your next life events!

Services are very professional. Food presentation is better than most caterers we see at our venue. Their food always looks delicious, and the owner is very accommodating when working with the bridal parties. We always recommend The Catering Place when wedding clients ask us for vendor information.
