Cart was greasy, gross and dirty. We watched him throw a block…literally a block of frozen sausage and hamburgers on the grill to defrost. An hour later, he ran out of steak tips. Then promptly ran out of everything else….including propane to cook the remainder of food we had paid for!!! People who did get food got skimpy servings. When we told him we were unhappy, it took four phones calls to get a response from him. He never called back, just hid behind a condescending letter telling us we ate more than normal
people, that women normally

’t eat a lot as us and that’s why he was unprepared!
Oh, and his logo is offensive.
Buyer beware!!!

sat down with me and went over all the details and made many great suggestions. She suggested the types of alcohol we needed and how much of each to buy as well as which mixers and how much of those to get. During our consultation she also made recommendations for table setup and overall flow. The day of the party

and her team showed up promptly on schedule, provided beautiful glassware and completed the bar set-up. Our bar was self-serve which worked great but next time I think I would even hire one of

's team to stay and bartend. Everything went great and people kept commenting how amazing the bar was.

thought of everything, she even a tub of bottled waters next to the door so people could grab them on the way out! I won't throw a party at my house again without
Surprise Caterers Provider Name Locked
and her team.

is a culinary school grad who has an extensive resume in the food business. He and his crew catered a
Surprise Caterers Provider Name Locked
and hot dog bar in our back yard for 50. We initially communicated by email, then he stopped by to see the facilities and to discuss details. He and his crew showed up on time, 3 hours before the start of the party. They helped move furniture and set up tables along with doing all their own prep. All the food was very fresh and invitingly displayed. He brought linked hot dogs, burgers, bratwurst, and portobello mushroom caps, about 20 different

for the bar including among other items
Surprise Caterers Provider Name Locked
slaw, sauerkraut, chili, guacamole, and bacon, along with a relish platter, cheese platter, and 9 different condiment sauces, large trays of
Surprise Caterers Provider Name Locked
and cheese, and a cucumber-watermelon salad. The price also included a crudit?s platter with dip, fresh fruit platter, cookie and
Surprise Caterers Provider Name Locked
trays, bottled water, pop, and beer. They brought their own grill so guests enjoyed fresh-off-the-grill meats.
Surprise Caterers Provider Name Locked
also brought all the disposable plates, glasses, plastic ware, and napkins along with trash cans. They made fresh sangria and offered it to the guests throughout the evening.The crew stayed about an hour after the end of the party to clean up and to box up any leftovers.
Surprise Caterers Provider Name Locked
and his crew are young and enthusiastic, interacted with the guests very appropriately, and were extremely easy to work with. I would highly recommend them without hesitation.

The caterer was so cooperative: they had never served before at our venue and agreed to participate in a costly training program so we could use them. The food was excellent as was the service. The caterer allowed us to tailor the menu to our party scheme and tailored
Surprise Caterers Provider Name Locked
levels as we wanted. We provided our own liquor -so the price was a bit high. Highly recommended for food and service.

I cannot say enough about the quality and the professionalism! The meal was delicious and the service was outstanding. I want to think up other events so I can book Tuxedos and Tennis Shoes again!
We hired them to handle our son's wedding rehearsal dinner. It was important to us that it go well. It was perfect!

I would give this experience an A+++ rating.
Surprise Caterers Provider Name Locked
was a delight to work with. She catered a garden party for 50 people. (It was supposed to be 40 but a total of 50 arrived) and she sailed through the the extra preparations without a hitch. The staff of 4 was very professional, helpful, personable and very comfortable to work with. The food she prepared was some of the best I've ever had, and we are 'foodies'. This isn't the entire menu, but some of the selections were Shrimp and Scallop Ceviche with Avocado Mousse (exquisite flavors), Asian noodle salad boxes, kimchi dumplings, hickory smoked pulled pork sliders, (she smokes the pork herself), mini lobster rolls,

Surprise Caterers Provider Name Locked
, mini

crisp and fresh home-made sorbets. She uses only the best and freshest ingredients and grows many of her own vegetables and herbs. The serving was perfectly timed and every guest had a plentiful amount of food even though there was a 25% increase in the number of guests. When the party ended, they cleaned the kitchen until it shined and left it as though they had never been here. Every guest commented on how wonderful the food was and how nice the caterer and staff was. I would use her again in a heartbeat and I would recommend her to anyone who wanted a stellar caterer for an event

We first met with
Surprise Caterers Provider Name Locked
, chef and owner of
Surprise Caterers Provider Name Locked
, the last week of June as we were interviewing caterers for our August 3 wedding. We had chosen to have hors d'oeuvres rather than a complete meal for our 30 guests at a 5 o'clock ceremony/reception.
Surprise Caterers Provider Name Locked
made several excellent suggestions on menu items and the order of service. After our meeting, he quickly summarized our conversation (including getting specific pricing from the tent rental company) in an e-mail.
Surprise Caterers Provider Name Locked
had "crossed all the T's and dotted all I's," and we selected him as our caterer.
Over the next few weeks,
Surprise Caterers Provider Name Locked
kept in touch and made several suggestions which we agreed upon. The week before the wedding, we sent him a headcount of attendees; he phoned to confirm the number and ask about any changes. He also suggested we change the flavor of the wedding cake, which turned out to be a great suggestion. He contacted the tent company and promptly got back to me with the date and time of their arrival.
Surprise Caterers Provider Name Locked
and his staff also do all of their own shopping and food preparation; he does not use pre-made items.
On our wedding day
Surprise Caterers Provider Name Locked
and his staff, Chody and
Surprise Caterers Provider Name Locked
, arrived promptly. We were able to continue with our own wedding preparations and did not need to interact with, answer questions, or direct
Surprise Caterers Provider Name Locked
in his activities. There were no last minute changes to the menu; everything was as planned.
All items on the original menu were professionally prepared and presented. The tea sandwiches, fruit, cheese, and vegetables, and beverages were set out for guests to serve themselves, and mini crab cakes, spanakopita, chicken fingers with dipping sauces (for our little guests), meatballs, mini fried ravioli with marinara sauce, and shrimp cocktail being served by the friendly and professional staff, Chody and
Surprise Caterers Provider Name Locked
. Our guests raved about the one-bite crab cakes and salmon, cream cheese, and cucumber tea sandwiches.
The food was delicious, the presentation was excellent (especially the fruit, cheese, and spiced nut selections on chilled pieces of rough slate), the service was excellent, and the attention to detail noticeable. The wedding cake was prepared by a baker and served by
Surprise Caterers Provider Name Locked
. It was white cake with chocolate mousse filling and butter cream icing. Many guests had more than one piece!
Many of our guests asked us or

provided a memorable party for our guests on our wedding day. He delivered exactly what he promised and the entire day went smoothly.
Surprise Caterers Provider Name Locked
