    Chris and his team at Clean Plate were professional, easy to work with and took the time to understand our needs. The friendly demeanor of his staff, reflects back into your event. The food was great, and I would recommend their services.

    We moved to Nashville 34 years ago and the Clean Plate Club is the only catering company we have ever used. To us they as a company are perfection. Some of the events they have catered for us are : party for the Opera, numerous pool parties, brunches, wedding party , large and small birthday parties both seated events.

    Yes ,I am in love with Monica, Chris, and Lisa Holmes and their excellent staff. I have always trusted them to gide me on the number of staff I would need to have the atmosphere I wanted. My advice is leave it to The Clean Plate Club and you won't be disappointed.

    The Clean Plate Club are amazing chefs! We've had the Wedding Planners Of Nashville meeting at our venue, Tucker's Gap, and the staff was amazing and helpful, leaving our kitchen spotless. The food they served was perfectly cooked, and the presentation was beautiful. The wedding planners all enjoyed theme, and I'm sure were won over at that time if not already!
