Amazing catering for our big day!
After talking to a ton of caterers in the area, we finally decided on Old North State and we are SO glad we did! Chris and Jacque were wonderful throughout the whole process. Putting together our menu was so fun and seeing it all come to life at the tasting was awesome. Our wedding day was HOT and I was a bit overheated and without an appetite, but I forced myself to eat because, y'all... the good is SO GOOD. Possibly even more important that that- they are plain and simply good people. We couldn't be more happy with our decision to hire them!Sent on 05/29/2019

ONS is amazing!
Chris and Jacque were amazing to work with! From day one they both ensured we ended up with the perfect food for our big day. Their food is out of this world and they were super professional throughout our planning process. They made sure to keep in contact in case we had changes and those changes were so easy as they worked with us along the way. I've had multipole people rant and rave about the food at our wedding, I'll be referring ONS to anyone I know!Sent on 05/05/2019
Old North State Catering's reply:Marisa and Alex - Reading this review has made our week! You all were so much fun to work with from the very beginning and we are so happy you chose us to be a part of your big day. Nothing makes us happier than hearing how much the food was loved by you all and your guests. Cheers to a life full of happiness for the two of you! Thanks again for choosing Old North State!

ONS was an exceptional experience. Chris and Jill took the "worry" out of everything for the meal at my daughter's reception. They were so helpful providing tips and suggestions during the planning stages. Their team at the event were efficient, helpful and professional! All of our guests were complimenting the catering service when they spoke with me. The food was amazing! Loved the "cooker" outside for the whole hog southern "pig pickin' atmosphere. Definitely recommend ONS for "all" occasions ! They treat you like family:) Thank you Chris and JillSent on 11/07/2017
Old North State Catering's reply:Thank you, Lorraine. It was our pleasure! Love working with great people!

Jill made every effort to make certain we were happy with the menu choices for our daughter's wedding reception. The food presentation during cocktail hour as well as dinner was simply beautiful. Our guests were blown away by the delicious meal provided by ONS. We are extremely thankful for the part Jill and her team played in making this "once in a lifetime"event absolutely perfect.Sent on 11/07/2017
Old North State Catering's reply:Thank you so much! It was our pleasure working with you Belynda! You are a special lady... with a very special daughter.

I have to honestly say that ons food was absoulutly delicious. The chef was outstanding from the very beginning and had a fabulous taste testing. At the very beginning I knew we would go with them.. Everything seemed to fall in place from the beginning to end. The only complaint we had was the fact we didn’t have enough coffee..but that was nobody’s fault but my own.. Everyone enjoyed the wedding so much they stayed till the very end .. so extra coffee would have been nice..Jill did a great job keeping me the MOB calm up until the very end of the wedding. She is AwesomeSent on 11/07/2017
Ons is no.1 in my books
Old North State Catering's reply:Thank you so much! We so enjoyed working with you. The pleasure was all ours!
Quinn · Married on 09/23/2017
Everything was perfect. Jill and Chris wowed us from the get-go at our tasting. We had sat with two other caterers prior, and just knew with ONS that it would be a warmer and more personal experience. Their dishes are thoughtfully put together, and they had great suggestions based on the vision we had for our wedding. Jill was super helpful throughout the planning process, helping me coordinate rentals and my day-of timeline. When it came to our wedding day, Jill helped everything to go smoothly, allowing us to just sit back and enjoy every minute of our day/night. ONS arrived super early to set up, we got tons of compliments on the food, and leftovers were put in containers for us to take home. The servers walked across the venue during cocktail hour to bring us appetizers while we finished taking photos. We made sure to find time to sit down and eat full plates at our reception -- we weren't going to miss any of that food!! Everything was just as we'd hoped. Thank you!! -- Quinn & TroySent on 10/04/2017
Old North State Catering's reply:Thank you Quinn and Troy! We enjoyed every minute working with you. It was a our pleasure and we look forward to seeing you around the Quay!

Chris and Jill were fantastic and easy to work with from Old North State to provide catering for our wedding reception. The food they provided was delicious and all our guests were impressed! They were very accommodating to customize our menu. They were prompt and worked well with our venue coordinator and owners to present a lovely setup and had professional staff on site to serve our guests. I would highly recommend using ONS for any event. You will not be disappointed!Sent on 10/02/2017

ONS was so flexible and helpful during the planning process of our reception! The food was excellent and we cannot recommend them enough! So many of our friends told us it was "the best wedding food" they had ever had and we agree! Chris, the owner, even walked me into the reception with an umbrella because it was pouring down rain. That is what you call service! Jill, who did our correspondence and planning was so kind and helpful to work with!Sent on 07/03/2017
Old North State Catering's reply:Thank you, Kerry. It was a beautiful wedding and our great pleasure to be a part of your big day! It was a pleasure working with you.

Chris & Jill were awesome to work with. I had a big wedding and they had no problem with working everything I wanted and needed in. I do not know where to start about the food, it literally was finger licking good. I love the fact that the food was cooked ok site. If you are looking for a caterer then look no further this company is the best at what they do.Sent on 06/24/2017
Old North State Catering's reply:It was our pleasure! What a beautiful bride and an absolutely lovely event start to finish. God bless and thank you for trusting us with your big day!

Old North State catered my son's wedding and everything was terrific! We already knew their food is great from the taste testing we did with them. And they did not disappoint on the wedding day! We had the coldest day in Feb for an outdoor, tent reception on our farm and they kept bringing out piping hot food from their mobile kitchen until all the guests were full. Meatballs, tomato soup with grilled cheese, pecan crusted chicken, pork, grilled vegetables and mac and cheese all steaming hot and delicious. I overheard many of the guests comment on how tasty everything was. And there was no shortage of any of the dishes - no one left the reception hungry! Great food and enough of it was a high priority for our kids on their wedding day and ONS delivered. Having the kitchen onsite is a huge advantage for selecting Old North State. Then add their amazing staff - from Chris the owner, to Jill the manager, to the kitchen and wait staff - everyone is professional, accommodating and great to work with. No request is a bother, they always have smiles on their faces and they all work very hard. And we hired bartending staff through ONS as well who were real troupers in the freezing weather. Again, total professionals who served our guests with smiles - parkas, toboggans and all! We can not say enough about how pleased we were to have selected Old North State as our caterers and would recommend them in a heartbeat!Sent on 02/28/2017

This establishment has the BEST FOOD and are a real family oriented group that really listens to what your likes and dislikes are so that they are able to provide the very best to meet a variety of tastes and yet be realistically priced.

If I could give a 10 for flexibility, I would. Old North State Catering was absolutely outstanding adjusting the time for plating our dinner due to unforeseen bridal delays and still managed to put a terrific dinner in front of us. If I had another daughter, I would hire them again, no doubt.Sent on 11/08/2016

Old North State Catering was our first choice for our wedding reception caterer & we were extremely pleased with the final results. They helped come up with a wonderful menu that was within our budget. They answered all of our many questions, & were thoughtful about the many details. Their presentation was eye-catchingly beautiful - it looked like something out of a magazine. The food perfectly complemented our wedding theme, floral displays, decorations, etc,. The food exceeded our expectations & we are still getting compliments on the meal. We highly recommend Old North State Catering & would undoubtedly use them again for all of our future catering needs.Sent on 12/28/2015

Old North State did a fabulous job catering our Christmas party. They could not have been more accommodating and were delightful to work with. They took our small budget and made it look like so much more. The food was delicious and they did a super job of quietly and professionally attending during the event. This is the second event ONS has catered for us and they never disappoint!Sent on 02/18/2016

Old North State catered the first annual Valentine's Dinner at The Mill in Fuquay-Varina. They were very helpful with planning the menu, helping with creative ideas, and staying within our budget. The food was superb, and presentation was impeccable.Sent on 12/28/2015
We are employing them to do at least four more catered events in 2016, and they are so easy ( and fun) to work with!
