Wonderful food, great service!
Crazy Dutchman Catering is my absolute FAVORITE caterer in Charleston! CDC catered my April 2019 wedding, and this is not the first time we've worked with them - they're that good! The selection of available dishes and cuisines is incredible, food is delicious, and you won't find better service. They bring a huge crew to make your event a success - and their prices can't be beat. Everyone at our wedding raved about the food - and we got to enjoy the leftovers!Sent on 05/20/2019

Great wedding catering!
We had a wonderful experience with Crazy Dutchman for our wedding. They were by far the best value I could find in Charleston and our guests loved the food! Working with them leading up to the wedding was a great experience as well. They were always quick to respond to emails and questions and very organized. I would definitely recommend using them for your wedding or any other even!Sent on 02/28/2020

Amazing food and dedicated staff
We booked with Crazy Dutchman Catering for food and bar service for our wedding reception, and had an overwhelmingly positive experience all around. Hans and his team were very professional and responsive. The staff members were so friendly, and worked hard through a tropical storm to make sure that everything was perfect, despite the weather. The food looked and tasted AMAZING - our guests are still talking about it two months later! (A couple of the all-time favorites were the hot spinach dip and the shrimp and grits!).Sent on 12/13/2019
We are so happy that we go to work with CDC, and highly recommend them to anyone who wants excellent food and bar service (and at a great price!) for their special event.

Fanatastic, authentic food
In a city where wedding vendors charge an arm and a leg, Crazy Dutchman Catering is a breath of fresh air. We had our wedding at a fairly unconventional, rustic venue, and Crazy Dutchman Catering helped us pull off the perfect lowcountry menu. We had a lowcountry boil, pulled pork, banana pudding, chicken and waffles, just to name a few... Our guests raved about the food all night. The best part - Crazy Dutchman Catering is easy to work with, flexible, and offers reasonable prices. They were great about handling some of the logistical challenges at our venue, and they were super patient despite our indecisiveness throughout the process. I would highly recommend hiring Crazy Dutchman Catering!Sent on 05/27/2019

The best choice for catering!
Working with Crazy Dutchman was one of the easiest parts of the whole wedding process! Everyone was so responsive! They were able to provide guidance about everything from food choices to set up at the venue! The tasting was so fun too! Prices were affordable and the food was AMAZING!! I literally could have eaten 5 plates of those grits!! All our guests loved the food too! We got so many compliments about it and there was so much! Definitely recommend crazy Dutchman!Sent on 04/15/2019

Easy to work with, friendly, and professional
Crazy Dutchman Catering did a wonderful job catering for our rehearsal dinner. They responded promptly on emails and were very helpful in figuring out how much and what kind of food to serve for the type of event we were going for. The day itself went seamlessly, the food was great, we had pork loin and chicken tenders with a couple other veggies. The pork loin was especially great, it was juicy and tasted great. We would easily have Crazy Dutchman Catering for another event! Quality, outstanding services and affordable, and the staff was professional, kind and courteous the whole time.Sent on 01/23/2019

Crazy Dutchman was recommended to me by my wedding planner, and I am so thankful to her for that! I cannot imagine a better balance of quality and price point exists anywhere else in Charleston. In fact, my father-in-law (a very practical, money-smart engineering type) saw my wedding catering quote and decided to use them for our rehearsal dinner too. Their service, responsiveness, and friendliness are top-notch, and the food is so delicious! In fact, we were told we would get a take-home bag of food in our limo at the end of the night, but there was none because the food was so amazing my guests CLEANED THEM OUT. (To be clear, I think this was an extremely good sign and high praise for Crazy Dutchman, and not their fault at all!) My guests raved about the food at both events, and they made things easy for us at every step of the way. I'm even a shrimp and grits snob (and I order it at every opportunity), and the shrimp and grits at my wedding was among the best I've ever had. Thank you Crazy Dutchman for a stellar wedding weekend!Sent on 05/29/2018

Crazy Dutchman catering provided the food at my wedding this May and it was so delicious! Everyone loved it and said they couldn't stop eating it! We did the station style buffet and that worked out perfectly for us since we wanted more food options. We also had food at cocktail hour which people have said it was so good. Their food is so delicious and their catering services were great!Sent on 05/30/2018

We are so so thankful for Crazy Dutchman and their crew for helping us have the BEST wedding food. We searched tirelessly for a catering company for our wedding and were so disappointed by the small portions and unimpressive quality we kept finding at our tastings. We had a very conservative budget but were determined to find GOOD food. Finally, we found Crazy Dutchman and got everything we wanted on our menu (& more) for a price that we were comfortable with. We did a "Charleston" themed menu since most our guests traveled from California and boy was it a hit. We had a couple appetizers during cocktail hour and then for the main dinner had pulled pork, chicken quarters, red rice with sausage, pimento mac n cheese, coleslaw, cornbread, salad and peach cobbler and banana pudding for dessert. IT WAS AMAZING! We have been to nearly 20 weddings and have never left feeling full or satisfied... but this meal left everyone full and happy! So many people complimented us day of and sent texts after raving about how delicious our food was. So many brides and grooms had also told us we wouldn't eat at our wedding and to prepare to go home hungry... well that was not the case for us. Crazy Dutchman prepared us HUGE plates and made sure we got to eat at the reception and then packed us two take home containers full for the night of. We thought that was it until we went home the next day to find our fridge full of massive trays of more leftovers! We now don't have to start married life off hungry... or cooking! Yay! We also had Crazy Dutchman do our bar service, they did an amazing job with that as well! We had two different bars and no one left thirsty :) We are so happy we found Crazy Dutchman and hope to use them again very soon for more parties, gatherings in the future! You will not be disappointed with this team!Sent on 04/24/2018

I had an unbelievable experience with Crazy Dutchman Catering! I was planning a wedding in Folly Beach from Chicago and was extremely nervous on choosing my vendors. I reached out to a handful of caterers and none of them were as responsive and proactive as Crazy Dutchman. They were in constant communication with me and were extremely flexible. They heard what I was looking for and needed very little direction from me. We had our food catered through them, our bar and our rentals! All of my guests raved about the food, I had a lot of people say that this was the best meal they have had at a wedding, which is a HUGE compliment. I cannot recommend Crazy Dutchman Catering enough. Thank you for everything!Sent on 04/05/2018

Crazy Dutchman was recommended to us by a family friend who was beyond thrilled with how their services worked out for their event. We began discussing menus and after we received our first estimate, were sold on the value. We wanted to have a reception menu that reflected "us" and had items we both loved. After some back and forth between my bride and I, we committed to a menu and scheduled a tasting at their offices. This was one of the more fun aspects of wedding plan in our opinion and we highly recommend doing so if you can. Eating in front of someone who is not also eating is a tad awkward, but they take detailed notes if you want items to be seasoned differently or something does not suit. Everything we tried we liked and were excited to share with our guests.Sent on 06/18/2018
During the tasting we were able to modify a few other items to include the plates and utensils from their baseline and see what the options were. We opted to use disposable hard plastic plates that looked like fine china with silver plastic utensils, which saved us nearly $1k in china rentals and reduced the overall labor cost. Another neat part of the tasting experience is seeing all the notes on the walls thanking this catering company for donating all the leftover food from their events to the Crisis Ministries.
Our guests LOVED the food at the reception and no one went home hungry. Our coordinator had a staff that brought plates of food from all three stations to our sweetheart table. Our only regret is that we were not able to eat more, but as the bride and groom, that's how it goes. They made sure we had to go boxes to take as we departed the reception which were greatly appreciated after a wonderful and busy day.
From the very start everything was upfront and we always felt we could reach with any questions that were answered in a timely manner. We would love to use them again highly recommend them for your catering needs. You will not be disappointed.

We had Crazy Dutchman Catering provide a lowcountry boil with sides and drinks for our rehearsal dinner, and everything was simply perfect. We hosted the dinner in our back yard, and they showed up early to get the boil going so it would ready to serve at the designated time. The food was delicious, and they packed up all the leftovers for us to keep. Working with Hans through the planning and asking questions stages was also incredibly easy. He was flexible in taking our calls outside of work hours (since we were 2 time zones away) and was straightforward with information and pricing. Great experience!Sent on 07/27/2017

Crazy Dutchman was a dream to work with for our recent wedding. They were responsive, courteous, and extremely professional.

The quality of food is amazing. Everyone enjoyed the buffet and appetizers provided by Crazy Dutchman. Great flavors and a great price. We were originally going to do a food truck thinking it was cheaper having looked at other caterers in Charleston, but Crazy Dutchman was the best value we found in the end. And we're so glad we went with them because their food was PHENOMENAL. There were multiple revisions to our menu throughout the lead up to our wedding and they worked with us every step of the way. We feel totally confident recommending Crazy Dutchman to anyone looking for a catererSent on 06/03/2017
