    Thank you Tom and Maria for such a wonderful day! We booked our wedding at the Altamont Manor and one of the listed catering businesses was Turf Tavern. We decided to stop in and grab dinner and see what we thought... and it was delicious! We put down a deposit with Tom immediately! Not only is the food wonderful, but the service was OUTSTANDING. I was a bit of a nut with the centerpieces and decorations, and Turf Tavern handled it all so perfectly. They were also extremely flexible and accommodating with regards to dietary restrictions and our catering package. They are VERY professional, especially when dealing with our somewhat rowdy guests! :) It was great to receive such top-notch service while we were taking photos so that we didn't starve (wow those bacon wrapped scallops are delicious!). Everyone complimented the food and the staff, we are so happy we went with Turf! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

    What a great experience! Can't say enough good things about Tom and Maria and their staff.

    We mostly communicated by phone or email to arrange the catering menu for our daughter's wedding since we live in South Carolina. No request was refused and Tom and Maria were a delight to work with. We needed to accommodate guests with various dietary restrictions so our menu was a bit specialized - it was cheerfully arranged. They are a full service caterer, including things many caterers don't give, such as linens, glassware, dinnerware, etc. - this made the task of arranging a barn wedding so much simpler!

    We received all positive feedback from our guests about the delicious food.

    The on-site staff members were super professional, friendly and helpful, arriving earlier than we expected so that much of the set-up was completed by the time we arrived. They were readily available but not hovering over the guests. Everything was beautifully prepared and presented.

    This was a super experience from start to finish! Thanks Tom, Maria and staff!!
