    High Quality!

    Willaby’s was so amazing to work with! I was so pleased with the high quality food, the clarity in the process and the fabulous service!
    Working with Jean was wonderful, she was so helpful through the process. And Sara was such a gem, she really went above and beyond to make sure we were well cared for the day of the event.
    Thank you to Willaby’s, you made it easy and the food was divine!

    Willaby's Catering's reply:

    Excellent Catering Company!

    You truly cannot go wrong with Willaby's Catering! They have delicious food, and lots to choose from (the mac and cheese was AMAZING for our Fall wedding.) The most special part of all were the people! They were so fun- bartenders full on danced at the bar when the music came on, and so friendly and helpful! Blythe was so welcoming and responsive! We will definitely, with out a doubt, use Willaby's Catering in the future!

    I Highly Recommend Willabys

    Willabys provided appetizers and dinner for my daughter's recent wedding, and everything was excellent! The food was delicious, served at the perfect temperature, and the servings were very generous. We received lots of compliments! They were also great to work with throughout the whole planning process. Very professional and accommodating!

Jean and her team at Willaby's are the best! We've worked together for over a decade now on dozens and dozens of weddings and I've yet to taste anything that wasn't delicious!! They're fantastic about meeting each couple's needs and wants, and bring a track record of experience and professionalism that is rare in the area. I couldn't recommend them any more highly!!
