The venue that was contracted for my daughter’s wedding closed unexpectedly one week beforehand leaving us without a venue or service. Laurenda’s catering not only was able to accommodate us on short notice but the apps and food were amazing. Standouts were the pimento cheese app w/ bacon jam, the spinach dip app, the marinated chicken breasts, prime rib with bearnaise and the roasted potatoes. We had so many compliments from guests on the food. Thank you Chad!Sent on 07/13/2021

Fabulous and truly a wonderful experience. !
I can’t even say enough about the fabulous experience we had with Laurenda’s !Sent on 06/02/2021
The food was probably the best I have ever had. The guests at our wedding celebration just raved about the food and how delicious it was.
The staff was so very kind and caring yet professional in every way. They always responded promptly to questions .... and I had several!
They were clean and the decorations that came along with the food were so elegant.
They were also very efficient- they cleaned everything up so well and did so in such a timely manner.
I have highly recommended them to many and will continue to do so!

Amazing Prices, Amazing Taste, Amazing People
This is one of the sweetest companies we worked with at our wedding. They were referred by my florist. Upon going to their restaurant I was truly impressed. However, you cannot judge their catering work based on this. They put all their time and money into making catering something upscale and special. They have so many food options! We did BBQ a whole pig! It smelled, looked, and tasted soooo good! This vendors prices are unbeatable. They also throw in flower arrangements for their tables! And FULL SERVICE CLEAN UP!! Wow! They were so sweet, and didn’t make me worry one time.Sent on 07/22/2021

Super people! Delicious Food!
We are so happy we chose Laurenda's to cater our wedding. The decorations they brought for the buffet tables were lovely. The food was absolutely amazing and the people were super helpful, they even offered to help us watch our dog for a bit. For cocktail hour we had their pretzel bar which was a big hit! We had to reschedule our wedding due to COVID and they were very understanding and flexible. Would definitely choose them again!Sent on 04/21/2021

Laurenda's Catering went above and beyond to make my wedding perfect. With having to change the date and protocol due to COVID-19, they reassured me that everything would still remain safe and go according to plan. All the food was incredible,. I highly recommend the biscuits with strawberry butter and their vegetable lasagna. All the worked were professional and caring. Thank you so much!Sent on 02/03/2021

Perfect and delicious
I had the pleasure of working with Laurenda and her team for both my rehearsal dinner and my reception. Both experiences were perfect and my guests couldn’t help but go back for more. Anything that we could think of, she made happen for our special day (even if it wasn’t on the menu). She truly takes pride in her work and makes you feel like family. I will recommend her for all catering needs!Sent on 03/22/2020

We couldn’t have chosen a better caterer for our wedding! Laurenda, Alyssa, and Chad were so easy to work with and helped us put together exactly what we wanted for our menu. Chad was so helpful in offering suggestions and including special items we wanted to have. They were so sweet and treated us like family throughout the process. Everyone kept saying how delicious everything was and it was such a nice touch to have the picnic basket to go at the end of the night! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for amazing food and service!Sent on 08/29/2020
Laurenda's Family Restaurant & Catering's reply:Thank you Kaitlyn for your sweet review!! Might we just say, your party.. we mean wedding.. was AWESOME!!!! Definitely blew us away! It's so easy when you get to work with sweet couples like you two! Come visit us again soon!

They were amazing!!
At a wedding, the thing a guest cares most about is the food they are going to eat, and we wanted to make sure that we got the best of the best! Laurenda's staff was incredible to work with, inviting us to their restaurant where we got to try plate after plate of different food options, working within our budget to create an amazing menu, and creating a beautiful display during our wedding reception. As soon as we met Laurenda we knew we would be in good hands, and we could not have asked for anything more! They even packed a picnic basket for my husband and I to enjoy once we got back to the hotel room after the reception, and finally getting to slow down and enjoy the full meal together was one of our highlights from the entire day! Thank you so much for everything!!Sent on 01/31/2020
Laurenda's Family Restaurant & Catering's reply:We absolutely loved your wedding! You two and all of your guests were the absolute sweetest! We had the best time. Hope you are enjoying married life!! Your pictures were perfect!!!

Laurenda's Catering is THE best bang for your buck. The most incredible food and most amazing people providing service. We worked with the chef, Chad, throughout the taste testing process and he tailored the menu to exactly what our preferences were and to match our budget. He was there to make the food and serve on our wedding day. He was so kind to our family and our guests, which we appreciated so much. We received so many compliments about the delicious food and the kind staff who came to serve with Chad. We couldn't have dreamed with going with any other caterers!Sent on 10/31/2019

Do yourself a favor...
From day one, Laurenda's was everything we could have asked for and more! We wanted the food at our wedding to reflect our personalities, and they nailed it! Their options/offerings are literally endless, and we were able to customize a perfect menu to fit our needs. Their staff was extremely friendly and thorough, and their presentation was beautiful and flowed perfectly with our wedding decor. Their reputation throughout the upstate and within the local community is immeasurable, as is their quality and service.Sent on 01/26/2021

Laurenda's Catering - Delicious and Delightful
Laurenda's Catering did appetizer service and full dinner buffet for my daughter's wedding. From the tasting through to clean up after the reception - I cannot say enough good things about the people at Laurenda's.....and the food is wonderful. When was the last time you heard people rave about chicken at a wedding? Our guests did - it was so tasty and moist that our guests could not get over how good it was and spoke of it more than the filet! And the creamed corn is to die for literally. Chad, Alyssa and Laurenda were great to work with - took their time, replied to all our questions, offered suggestions when we were stuck and most of all - gave us an amazing night within our budget! We are super grateful and I would definitely recommend them again. Good - honest - God loving people.....they are family now!Sent on 10/02/2019

They are amazing
Laurenda's Catering is a family owned business that initially attracted us due to the significant amount of services they provided. They provide their own decorations according to your color scheme, their own linens, and additional food for the officiant, DJ, photographer, and any staff at the wedding. Beyond this, they were the kindest and most attentive people. They went as far as to check on my husband and I during the reception as well as to let us know that we are welcome to pack up any left over food we may want. If you are considering Laurenda's, I would encourage you to at least talk to them.Sent on 05/23/2019
Laurenda's Family Restaurant & Catering's reply:Thank you Caitlin! It was such a pleasure to be part of your big day! We can't wait to see you all again soon! Have a great time on your honeymoon!

We can not thank you enough for the incredible food and service you provided for our wedding in April. We could not have chosen a better caterer and we were absolutely thrilled with your service. Your staff was so friendly, so helpful, and such hard workers! The food was absolutely delicious! We are still getting compliments on how awesome everything tasted and how there was such a great variety of items. The basket we received at the end of the night was incredible! We could not believe everything that you included in it! Special thanks to Alyssa for running the show and doing a fantastic job. Our families and friends were so very pleased.Sent on 05/14/2019
Laurenda's Family Restaurant & Catering's reply:We love hearing such great things! We are so blessed to have worked your wedding and Alyssa is tickled pink with your sweet comments! Our team had a wonderful time at your wedding and we are so glad to hear that you did too! If you ever need us for anything else, just let us know!

Exactly like a cherished holiday meal and family gathering!
Laurenda's catering was the hit of our pre-wedding reception. We had Laurenda cater dinner for 112 at our home in Clinton, SC on March 2, 2019. We had a southern menu for all our out of state guests. She made our family recipe for low country boil to perfection - the father of the bride had three helpings. Plus fried chicken, salad, rice pilaf, sweet tea, unsweet tea, and then homemade individual pecan pies and individual peach pies. Our guests were eating one of each and then having a second pecan. The pies were a hit. The pieces of chicken were huge. No one went hungry. Everything tasted fantastic. I had wanted to make one item for the evening so that I could feel like I made dinner, but in my wedding crunch time, I forgot to make cornbread for the event. So day of last minute Laurenda and her staff brought bread to go along with the meal! Her staff was incredible. They showed up exactly when they said they would - even though they had never catered at our house. Her team was so professional - the newness of the setting didn't phase. They set everything up with plenty of time to spare before guest arrived. They helped our guests with the buffet flow in the kitchen, they refilled, were never in the way, they cleared dishes so our families could keep talking and laughing. At the end they cleaned, washed personal dishes I had wanted used, and even took the trash as they left. I couldn't have be happier. The evening was a complete success. The setting made the bride and groom really comfortable to meet and greet with family and long time friends. Having Laurenda cater made it so that as the mother and father of the bride we could really mix and mingle with our guests. The food was absolutely delicious and plentiful. We are a family that likes to sit around the holiday tables and eat and laugh and then eat and laugh some more. Laurenda made this exactly like all those cherished holiday meals where families bond and memories are made. This was a truly one of a kind special meal and we couldn't have done it without Laurenda.Sent on 09/30/2019
Laurenda's Family Restaurant & Catering's reply:Thank you so much MaryBeth! My staff still talk about your beautiful home & how gracious you & your husband were.

Lots of Love, Laurenda

Laurenda’s Family Restaurant and Catering
Scheduled a meeting and Mrs. Laurenda & Chad we’re prompt. The tasting was great and I mean they had a spread for you. But most importantly they make you feel like family. I loved every bit of that. Mrs. Laurenda said I can tell you about my food all day long but you have to taste it for yourself! We had to have Laurenda and Chad after that! Amazing individuals!Sent on 12/07/2018

Everyone raved about it
One of the things we could the most compliments on besides our appearance and the venue was the FOOD. Everyone LOVED the food that Laurenda served and how beautiful they made the buffet table look! As most brides and grooms are spoken to and can’t eat much during the reception, Laurenda packed us a to-go basket with food in it! She was so sweet and made the process of choosing food so easy! 10/10 recommend♥️♥️Sent on 01/13/2019
