    Incredible dinner meeting under the stars!

    For the first time in our organizations history we took a chance and moved from a banquet facility to an outdoor event for our annual meeting. BEST DECISION EVER because the food and presentation from Watch Hill Catering blew away our guests. We have had so many requests to continue this format and with this specific caterer. Their team worked with stealth like precision to serve during the program. And from the hosts perspective, they were 100% on top of every detail throughout the process. They gave me the confidence to go forward with a 220 person event. We would highly recommend these pros and use them again in a heart beat. Thank you Sam and team!
