"I called on Mon 3/9 and left a Voice mail. I emailed on Tuesday and the email came back to me so I thought they were not in business. I called again on
" 3/12 because I re-located their website (which was challenging for some reason) and have never heard back from either phone call.

treated me as if I were her only client even though she had several other events to cater before and after mine. She took the utmost care" in listening to my catering needs and working well within my budget, Her well established knowledge of the business helped me put together a fantastic menu that received raving reviews from our staff and volunteers. The food presentation, quality, and taste was outstanding! I highly recommend them. You will not be disappointed.

It was posted on Face Book National Chili Day $1 the 71st Street & Georgetown Road insisted there needed to be a coupon. There was no place that ask on "Facebook" to print it out.

I decided that I wanted to celebrate my 50th Birthday Party in my home here in Fredericksburg, Virginia. I was going to invite family and friends from all over to celebrate this event. I thought about a local restaurant, but the logistics of having almost 20 people for dinner wasn't the same as having everyone in my home with no timelines and having the event catered. I tried in vain to locate a
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
service with an excellent reputation, but failed to find such here in this area. I decided to use Angie's List and there with high grades and with excellent write-ups was
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
&
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
. I went on to contact
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
, Executive Chef
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
, who from the first phone call to the last chat and paying the reminder of my balance, was one of the most professional service providers I have ever come across and I've been in the customer service arena for over 30 years. We immediately set on a date and in a few days I received a draft menu. We went back and forth a few times until we had a solid menu which included Passed Canapé Options, Main Buffet Options with Sides, my chosen birthday cake, and she even went as far as including a complementary Vegetarian Dish for my daughter, who was going to be joining us from college and it was a total surprise to her. In the weeks leading to the event,
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
maintained in close communication, updating the menu and making adjustments all around to include making arrangements for rental equipment, which in this area, was a total challenge for her. Once we had a solid menu and all arrangements were in place for the rental,
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
’s Law dictated last minute changes, which
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
handled in a seamless matter.
On the day of the event,
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
was here bright and early, and her selected assigned Server (
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
), who by the way, was excellent himself, took over my kitchen and I have to tell you that the event was flawless, I kept checking on them and they had everything under control, from passing out the hors d’oeuvres, to the drinks, to the main dinner, to the cutting of the cake, my family and friends were amazed on the superior service and attention they all received, from the youngest to the oldest, seamless and exciting. The food, which
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
prepared from scratch, was excellent, delicious and nutritious :) The cake...OMG the best cake I've ever tasted (Coconut Cake with Bavarian Cream filling - my choice) was beyond describable. BTW I’m already planning on having
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
prepare another cake for my son’s birthday this summer. I cannot say enough of the outpouring compliments and positive comments received from everyone for
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
and
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
. The timing of everything, even the birthday Champagne toast was timed perfectly. The most amazing thing yet was that
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
left my kitchen spotless, just as it was when she arrived. She washed and wiped down everything and when I mean everything, I mean everything was secured exactly the way I had it. They moved all tables to their original position and moved all rental equipment back into the garage for pickup that following Monday.
What else can I say but simply amazing! I would recommend
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
to everyone and anyone – for any event, period. She is very humble and professional and would be an invaluable person to any event, big or small.
I am planning on using
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
in the very near future as there aren't any reputable
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
services in the Fredericksburg area – trust me.

We chose them partly for the availability, because it was a birthday party in December and many of the caterers were busy with holiday parties and then talking to the woman, she seemed upbeat, responsive, fun, and flexible and casual and not as formal as couple of the other companies I spoke with. She was a fun person to have at the party.

I recently hired
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
from
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
and am so happy that I did. I cannot say enough about his professionalism and the superb food he prepared for our group.
He was referred to me by a colleague who has used his service before. She highly recommended him and I have to say I was very impressed. I called him more than a month prior to the occasion and told him what price we had to work with. He called back within a few days with a themed menu and a few suggestions of how to reduce the total bill. Our funds were limited but
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
figured out a way to feed at least 115 people, with leftovers to spare.
The numerous compliments I received was the best part of the whole catered affair, but of course,
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
deserved ALL the praise!
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
had it under control and prepared delicious food. We were going for a
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
theme and he made the festivities come together with his delectable food.
ginnier beachHe outdid himself making Jambalaya (with sausage and shrimp), Cajun Pork Loin, Bourbon Chicken, Macaroni and Cheese, Red Beans and Rice plus a Roasted Corn mixture. All the food was hot, ready to eat and looked very appetizing. He also set up on time which is always a plus. The food was scrumptious and even though more than half of the guests were children there was plenty of choices to satiate any appetite. I’m certain everyone left full and happy.

We have used several other company's for both private dinners and large functions, none of them are on the same level as
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
. The chef (
Carlsbad Caterers Provider Name Locked
) is the real deal, you can tell from the very first contact that he is passionate about what he does. Most caterers produce the same thing over and over, they only modify the presentation to suit your function. It's like they just heat up pre-made food that looks good and fills the table but when it comes to taste, it's just exactly like every other wedding you have been to....boring and forgettable. This guy really listens and creates a specialized menu for you and MAN can he cook!!!! It's been two years since our wedding and our friends still out of the blue will make comments about how good the food was. On top of all that, he is a very nice person. He was able to work within our budget and communicate very clearly. A++++

It's a restaurant. Good food, fair service. Feels homey. It's like a visit to an old country, with all the trimmings. We did enjoy the visit, however, would not recommend going there with kids.
