Personalized menu and professional service from start to finish
I can't rave about Watch Hill Catering enough and can't wait to use them again for future events!! Watch Hill Catering and their team really let us personalize our wedding to make it that much more special. We designed our own menu, with all our favorite foods. We are huge cheese and charcuterie fans so that was really important as part of our cocktail hour and wow the spread was amazing and so beautiful!! We still have guests from our wedding talking about the food and quite frequently hear "your wedding had the best food we have ever had at a wedding!!" From passed appetizers (mini ruebens, duck confit with sweet potato, beef carpaccio), cheese and charcuterie, signature cocktails, pasta station (spinach tortellini, squash ravioli), salad station (not your average boring salads either (my favorite one -house made blood orange vinaigrette, arugula, farro, tomatoes and citrus), and to top it off roasted steak tips and lemon and thyme roasted chicken...and that's just to name a few of our favorites from our menu! You can make a menu as small or as grand as you choose and they will help guide you if you just can't decide! That's a great thing when wedding planning can be REALLY overwhelming. WHC will let you be as involved as you want, or can handle the whole thing from the menu to linens, tables and chairs for you while you focus on your seating chart haha The whole staff was more than professional and kept everything clean and tidy throughout the night. I went to our venue, Herreshoff Marine Museum, the day after and everything was cleaned up and they had even packed up my personal items neatly and wrapped them so they didn't break! My wedding day was everything I always dreamed of and more and WHC helped make that dream come true :)Sent on 11/16/2018

Watch Hill Catering where they take stress out of your day
Weddings are stressful to plan however, NOT with Watch Hill Catering. Working with WHC was stress free and accommodating to all allergies and wishes of my husband and I. Cocktail hour was a breeze with the pass out hors d'oeuvres and the stationary appetizers; the display was breathtaking and people captured many pictures. When we came back from pictures we were even surprised with our own plate set up at the sweetheart table. We chose the buffet option for ease and simplicity of the day. The smoked chicken and tender steak was a hit and everyone hopped on the dance floor with a full stomach. A few of my closest friends and family members had very crazy allergies, including dairy, gluten and eggs. I was nervous when talking to WHC due to some places do not have an answer or an option for people with allergies of this caliber. However, they all had their own Tuna dinner brought out special to them to ensure that their plate was safe for them to eat.Sent on 11/21/2018
I would recommend Watch Hill Catering to anyone who is looking for a caterer. I know that we will be using them for more events and even Thanksgiving when we host at our house.
