We know that planning an event can be stressful, so we promise to do everything we can to ease the burden on you.


***Tips for Pricing-Many  people ask why we don't have pricing on our website.  Everyone has different needs and tastes. We custom build each menu and event, We ask our clients to imagine entertaining their guests at a local restaurant, and how much it would be per person, then add drinks, dessert, and service (onsite, offsite or delivered). Our prices are competitive and reasonable for the highest quality of food and service you will receive. 

From the most elegant occasion, corporate events, graduations, retirements, birthday parties, and much more, we are your premier caterer!
