    Perfect Cape caterer!

    Chapin’s catered our wedding reception in June, and we couldn’t have been happier! Over the years I have been to the Chapin’s restaurant many times, and the food has always been good, but Chapin’s catering was above and beyond all of my expectations. The appetizers were delicious, we had guests who had never been to the Cape before and had their first (3) lobster rolls during cocktail hour, along with scallops wrapped in bacon, and beef wellington just to name a few. The presentation was perfect, shrimp cocktail served in a little martini glass with cocktail sauce at the bottom? Can you get any cuter?! The mashed potato bar was a hit, and so much fun to let people add their own toppings. But, in addition to having awesome food presented so nicely, the wait staff could not possibly have been any better! They were so accommodating, and friendly to all of our guests, and even seemed to be enjoying themselves dancing around to the music as they poured drinks, delivered food, and cleared the tables. Our guests are still talking about the amazing food (and wait staff) from our wedding. I would definitely recommend Chapin’s catering for all of your events, your guests will thank you later!

    The best food on the Cape!

    We have been going to Chapin's restaurants for years, so, when my fiancé and I got engaged, there was never a question that Jimmy and his staff were going to cater our wedding. Although I knew how amazing the food was going to be, it STILL left me speechless at our tasting. We had three separate entrees, 7 appetizers, the chowder bar (we ran out TWICE!) and mashed potato bar (highly recommend!). I cannot tell you how many of our guests came up to us at the wedding and the following week to say how unbelievable the food was - most said that it was the best wedding food they've ever had and that is the truth. If you are getting married on the Cape, there is no other caterer you should book than Chapin's - I promise you that you will not regret it!

    I cannot say enough how impressed I was with the food from Chapins. When we went for the tasting, I could not believe the variety of the food and how amazing it all was. We got to pick and choose anything we wanted! At the actual wedding, the food was even better if that's even possible! I do not even like sea food and I couldn't get enough of the baked stuffed haddock and the bacon wrapped scallops. They were to DIE for! We also had the mini beef wellingtons which were melt in your mouth good. Our guests raved about both the passed appetizers and the dinner buffet. Many of my guests commented on how huge of portions they received! The only negative thing I have to say is that I didn't get a chance to eat more of everything on my wedding day or take a doggy bag home! I was extremely happy with Kevin, all of the cooks, and all of the servers. They made our wedding feel like a 5 star dining venue. I would absolutely recommend the Chapins crew for any Cape Cod wedding!!!

    Chapin's Catering was just amazing! The wedding was 2 months ago and we are still talking about the delicious appetizers and entrees! Connie and her team were friendly and professional. I planned a destination wedding on the Cape from California and I could not have done it without Connie's help. She offered advice and suggestions that were so helpful. Her team knew all our wedding day wishes and made sure everything was perfect. The day ran like clockwork and there was not one problem the whole day. Our wedding was beautiful and the food was incredible and I give Connie and Chapin's Catering all the credit. I can not recommend them enough. Great experience!

    We had SUCH a good experience with Chapin's! They were accommodating and easy to work with from the very beginning, and everything went off without a hitch on the big day. Our guests were RAVING about our cocktail hour apps, especially the lobster sliders! Because we booked early, we also got a raw bar at no extra cost! Dinner was delicious and they offered easy options for all types of diets. The butternut squash ravioli was actually our favorite, and we're not even vegetarians! Servers were so wonderful to us and made sure we got enough to eat. Prices were super reasonable for all the awesome food we got. Perfect choice for a Cape wedding - thanks Kevin!!

    Chapins catered our wedding at Borsari Gallery on Cape Cod. They did an incredible job! The food was delicious and waitstaff and bartenders were fabulous. Our guests LOVED the "strolling reception" concept. We even went to the restaurant to hang at the bar after the wedding. Highly recommend working with Chapins!

    Seriously amazing food! Because we had a destination wedding, we had to go off recommendations for our food and we are so glad we listened to everyone who raved about Chapin's. The food was amazing, we got so many compliments! The appetizers were out of this world, and Jimmy was so friendly and wonderful!

    Amazing! Professional catering with attention to detail! Kevin worked with us and listened to what we wanted! They are quick to respond and willing to make a unique menu. Jim was out at our chowder station talking to guests about the food and several people commented on how great he was with the guests. If you want a reliable vendor who's has fair prices, amazing food and professional staff chapins is it! As someone from the cape I was having a very hard time finding a vendor we could trust for our wedding and we are beyond pleased! People are still raving about our food! we wouldn't have changed a thing and would recommend chapins to anyone getting married!

    When my wife and I first started looking for caterers we were devastated to find everyone was out of our price range, and we began to worry that whatever we ended up with would be terrible because of our budget. Chapin's completely shattered all of those worries. We did a heavy passed apps with 3 stations, and there was so much food! Not only was the food plentiful it was AMAZING, I would have never thought we could have done that classy of a dining experience with the budget we were on, but Kevin and Jimmy nailed it! I cannot give these guys enough credit, the value of their menu was so far beyond everything else we looked at that Chapin's was the only choice. We had nine, let me repeat that, NINE different and amazing food options, from lobster sliders to veggies spring rolls, there was literally something for everyone, so toss the old chicken, steak or fish wedding aside and let these guys blow your mind. We could not be happier with the finished product and the manner in which everything was handled. Thanks again guys, we'll be calling you for all of our catering needs in the future.

    Chapin's catered our daughter's wedding this past summer and everything was perfect, from the very beginning stages of the planning and right through to the reception. The food was fabulous, the prices were affordable and the service was professional and responsive. Thanks, Jimmy and Kevin, for allowing us to relax and enjoy our daughter's wedding, knowing that the guests were loving the food and that all our needs were being considered. We recommend Chapin's to anyone hosting a wedding on Cape Cod, whether you want to create a casual or a fancy atmosphere. The food will be beautifully presented and prepared and you'll be left with scrumptious memories!

    I can't say enough about Chapin's! The food was absolutely fabulous, including raw bar, passed and stationary appetizers, tenderloin, salmon, roasted veggie pasta, mashed potato bar.... Our family and guests have said that it ALL was among the best they have ever had. From the very first time we spoke, the original tasting, and finally the wedding of 180 people, the service was impeccable! The staff was professional, attentive, and very friendly! Serving that much food to that many guests at a venue that would have been impossible for most, was quite impressive. We highly recommend them and can't wait to return to their restaurant for a sampling of their other food! If we could we'd give Chapin's Catering 10 Stars!

    We have been patrons of Chapin's Fish n' Chips for years and we were psyched when we found out Chapins offered a catering service as well. Kevin Violet was fantastic to work with, and it was reassuring that he handled our wedding personally. Our tasting was outstanding and it was hard to narrow down our choices because every thing we tried was amazing! They were flexible and made alterations to the menu as needed. The guests were awed by the raw bar and passed hot apps at the cocktail hour. We have heard from many people: "The apps just kept coming!" The presentation was great as well. As the bride, I was presented with a tray with an assortment of apps by one of the caterers and she said, "This is for you and your husband!" It was perfect, because I devoured the whole tray while my bustle was being done up. The presentation and quality of the buffet was just as good, and people are still raving about how good our food was. Many people have told us: "Not typical wedding food!" And our mashed potato bar was a HUGE hit! Thanks Chapins!

    Chapin's was another one of our AMAZING vendors. We used them for both our rehearsal dinner and to cater the wedding. Because they have restaurants (one right near where we got married) and a catering company, they have the ability to do much more than just cater the wedding. They made a good deal with us for the rehearsal dinner and everyone commented on both nights how amazing the food was. Great vendor!!

    Chapin's Catering is by far the best caterer in all of Cape Cod, maybe the world! The food, from the hors d'oeuvres including a raw bar, to the dinner meal, was fantastic to say the very least. Kevin's well trained pallet and extreme passion for food come through in his delectable creations and combinations. His staff were incredibly professional and served every guests with the perfect amount of courtesy and professionalism. It was so elegant to have servers in white gloves, in appropriate dress, and smiles on their faces. They also went out of their way to make sure Carmelo and I got a taste of each hors d'oeuvres while we were having formal pictures taken and before our guests devoured them all. We appreciated that more than you know...especially when we finally arrived at the cocktail hour and saw that the raw bar had been wiped out, lol. Kevin and his staff of chefs created and served a sumptuous menu that was raved about by our guests. The haddock was flaky and moist, and the beef was juicy and tender. Chapin's officially has guests for life, not only Carmelo and I, but several of our guests will assuredly be dining at your restaurant in the future. Thank you for everything. It was absolutely perfect!!

    Chapin's catered our wedding and the food was great. Working with chef Kevin Violet was a pleasure. He was very responsive to our tastes, including our desire to include several retro-classic appetizers on our menu. In fact, he made it clear that he would be happy to prepare anything we wanted. (Apps from his own repertory were also just great!) His thinking about how to make the menu work as a whole was very creative, and by the time we had our tasting, the menu was already a success. We did request a few minor adjustments to various dishes at the tasting, and every single adjustment we had requested--no matter how minor--was taken care of perfectly on the day of the wedding.
    The high quality of the food was noticed and commented on by a great many of our guests.
    We couldn't have asked for a better wedding buffet!

    Chapins catered our wedding rehearsal Italian dinner. We had many quests from Manhattan and DC - all of whom raved about the food. They did an unbelievable job and were such a pleasure to work with! I most highly recommend Chapins Catering as a trusted vendor for any and all occasions. They are fantastic in every sense.

    I cannot say enough great things about Chapin's! Their food and service were exceptional. The tasting was delicious and I was nervous the day of food may not stand up to the quality, but it was just as excellent. My guests raved about the food, the sufficient quantities, and the care the staff gave. Kevin and his staff was a pleasure to work with. I would recommend working with Connie from A Perfect Plan to help coordinate the day of with them. Amazing!!!

    Chapin's was fabulous! Our reception venue works with them exlusively and had great things to say about them. We were a little nervous at first since we didn't really have a choice for the catering - but our minds were quickly put at ease. We met with Kevin and he and his team were able to draw up a menu we were extremley excited about that fit our budget. Our guests raved about the food and we made sure to eat plenty ourselves! I would highly recommend them for any catering needs and their restaurant is great too!

    Chapin's provided us with an amazing lobster clambake for our welcome dinner. The food was delicious and plentiful and they were incredibly friendly and lovely to work with, and it was a great value. The dinner was hosted at their Fish & Chips place, which was a great, casual venue with plenty of space for folks to relax and chat. We couldn't have asked for a better welcome dinner, our friends and family had a terrific time!

    My wedding venue had a set group of caterers that they would only work with, which ended up being just fine since Chapin's was one of the choices. Jimmy is a great guy to work with and was perfectly willing to make some alterations to dishes without any headaches. We had a few guests with food allergies, which was no issue for Chapin's (and since everyone is still alive I'd say they did a good job). The food tasting was such a tease because everything was so delicious. Since our wedding, guests have just gushed about how good the food was; something not every wedding reception can boast about. Every penny spent was beyond worth it with Chapin's, I wholeheartedly recommend them for any event!

    Kevin and everyone at Chapin's did such a great job with my wedding! The tasting was fantastic (basically an entire meal), and they were so flexible and helpful about everything we wanted to do. One guest had a garlic and onion allergy, and she was delighted with how the staff went out of their way to take care of her needs and make her a special plate for each course. The food was fantastic and beautifully presented, and everyone on the staff was so fun and friendly that they fit right into our wedding. I loved working with Chapin's and would choose them again in a heartbeat!
