    I hired Tim Holmes Catering for our May 2013 wedding. Tim came highly recommended from other vendors, which played a big part in our decision. His prices are very affordable, and the quality of the food was excellent. Tim's presentation of the buffet was also beautiful and added so much class to our wedding reception. So many of our guests commented to me on how delicious all the food was.
    And of course, in all our meetings and communications with them leading up to our wedding day, Tim was super professional and kind (even when I was late to a meeting... oops!!!). I would not hesitate to recommend Tim Holmes Catering to anyone looking for an affordable and delicious caterer with a great eye for presentation and detail.

    Tim Holmes Catering provided all of the food at my daughter's wedding. The food was absolutely delicious. We had so many guests comment about how good the food was. There was plenty of it, and the attendants were always watching to see what was getting low so that they could put more out. The food stations were beautifully decorated. Tim has so many unique serving pieces that you get to choose from. He has dishes that you get to use instead of using plastic plates. His linens are also wonderful. We booked Tim over a year ago for Jill's wedding, and he and his staff were always very responsive to our needs. His staff was also very professional and courteous as they served at the reception. He offers tasting events that help you make up your mind about what food you want to serve. Lastly, you cannot beat his price for the quality of the food you get!

    The food was great. I really appreciated the fact that the food was fresh and seasoned well. I sampled many caterers in the area and Tim Holmes Catering food and service was far superior. The staff went above and beyond to customize a menu to meet your budget. They even included the cake stand and cake cutting service.

    Tim Holmes did a great job at our wedding. Sarah was so helpful throughout the planning process and everything was executed in a very organized manner during our reception. The food displays were absolutely beautiful - I've never seen a catering company make a salad bar look so pretty. We told Sarah what our florist was doing with our centerpieces and table decor and she used serving items that coordinated perfectly. The food was delicious and their prices are better than anyone else in town.

    I don't even know where to begin about how thrilled we were with Tim Holmes Catering! We had a wedding reception of around 400 people and Tim and his staff, went above and beyond to see that our guests were treated to a great experience. I'm still having people tell me how delicious the food was! There was plenty of it, it tasted DELICIOUS and the display was beautiful, warm and filled with extra touches that paid such attention to special details.
    It was really important to us that our guests had easy accessibility to the food and that they weren't in long lines or on top of each other. Tim and his staff put much effort into helping us plan the layout and the flow was fantastic! We had some extra things that were a little out of the ordinary:a S'mores Bar, Hot Apple Cider and Hot Chocolate stations with toppings and a movie lounge with popcorn, m&m's and glass bottle cokes. Tim & Sarah made all of these extras unique to our reception!
    Besides how yummy everything tasted, comments from our guests included how they hardly had to wait in any lines, the food was always hot and not picked over looking, the staff kept the tables cleaned off and fresh and the most frequent question was, "Who catered this?!" The Buffalo Chicken Dip, Mashed Potato Bar and Beef Tenderloin were the most loved by our guests!
    An added bonus in going w/Holmes is that he has lots of beautiful linens to rent for guest tables (he includes linens in the price for all food tables), all plates, cutlery and drink ware are included in the price and he has a wonderful variety of center pieces and items like wine barrels and hi-top tables that he rents for a VERY reasonable price!
    Obviously, we were thrilled with Holmes Catering! His prices are beyond reasonable, the service and personal attention are top-notch and the food is delicious! We couldn't asked for more! Thank you Tim, Sarah and all of your wonderful staff!

    They were wonderful to work with! The food was delicious--several friends commented on the tenderness of the meat. The presentation was beautiful. Amazing warehouse of choices for serving pieces--we chose copper and wrought iron. Very generous portions. They anticipated everything we needed. Very professional.

    My husband and I loved working with Tim and Sarah. They were professional, fair in price and responsive. Tim also has lots of great decor to use at the reception venue. At the time of hire, Tim had never done family-style for a wedding, but was enthusiastic and on-board to try it for us. Not only was the service outstanding, but we received many compliments on the delicious food and cool family-style. We brought containers to fill with leftovers and the staff made sure every container was filled to the brim with food. We even got a to-go box for our wedding night (late night snack!). I would highly recommend Tim Holmes Catering!

    My daughter was married September 29, 2012 and Tim Holmes provided the catering. He worked with us in many ways and provided a wonderful menu on which we have received many great comments. Thanks again, Tim and all of your wonderful staff for helping to make the wedding the fairy tale that it was.

    We did a family reunion in Spartanburg SC on June 28 and June 29, 2012. Holmes catering was wonderful. They were on time, very hepful and very professional. I enjoyed the food. There was plenty for our guest. They enjoyed it very much. I would recommend this caterer for your event.

    I would recommend Holmes catering to any bride. They responded promptly, were very thorough and customized my menu willingly to incorporate an item that wasn't on the menu list. They made the process simple and were delightful to work with every step of the way!

    Tim & Sarah were great! They had never done a seated meal at my venue before and were worried about doing it with such a small kitchen, but they did a wonderful job! Great food & great service - definitely recommend!

    Tim Holmes Catering was awesome to work with. He provided the catering for the wedding reception and rehearsal dinner the night before. We had no idea what we wanted for the wedding reception and Tim was able to sit down with us and show us different menus and help us pick the perfect menu for our wedding. He was very easy to work with and responded very quickly with questions. He gave us one price per person for the food and no hidden fees. I had lots of friends at the wedding reception tell me how awesome the marinated shrimp was and how they loved the potato bar we had. I would recommend Tim Holmes catering to anyone looking for a catering company for their wedding.

    Holmes Catering was recommended to us by our venue because of the delicious food they provide, and also their immaculate presentation. Tim provided our initial consultation and then we worked with Sarah closer to the time of the event. Both were wonderful, and super easy to work with. The food was amazing, but I was most impressed with the staff that night. Plates were cleaned immediately, they checked on guests at all the tables, and even brought drinks from the bar if requested, though that was not part of their job. They went above and beyond and were so incredibly nice!! I would recommend them to anyone for any special event.

    I absolutely loved the food at the wedding. Holmes Catering went above and beyond for us, providing us with table linens and also serving the wine we provided. Julie was amazing, working with the person who did our cake and coordinating everything. I would absolutely recommend them. I was a little skeptical because I am from Charlotte and we have a lot of reputable caterers there but none wanted to travel to Spartanburg to do our wedding. You get a lot of good food for the money and the food is delicious. We had beef tenderloin, chicken stuffed with spinach and smoked gouda as well as baby potatoes and sauteed green beans. It was absolutely delicious!! and that was all on the same plate! Definitely a good value.

    Tim Holmes is a very busy man but his stuff is awesome! All the things that I've ever seen him do have been amazing as well as delicious! We did heavy h'ord. for our wedding and they were very filling. They even threw in some extra stuff bc they prepared too much for another function. Great people to work with! No wonder he's so busy!
