Hamby Catering is the caterer we used for our wedding in Charleston in June 2013. We worked closely with Megan and the Hamby team and could not have been more impressed with the service and professionalism.
Megan was the best!! We really enjoyed working with her. The food was excellent, the follow up was great and the service our guests received at the wedding reception was top notch. Hamby provided food during the cocktail hour and everyone loved it. They also provided the dinner for our outdoor reception following the wedding. It was delicious!!
Hamby is an extremely professional company with a great reputation in Charleston and we would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a fantastic catering company!

Hamby's is simply the best. We are still getting compliments on the food (people keep telling us it was the BEST wedding food they've ever had). Ryan McKenzie is an amazing event coordinator with Hamby's. He has done so many weddings before that no task is too big or challenging to him. We needed to squeeze a lot of people into a tight space and he made it happen. He got creative with the table set up and made it perfect! We couldn't have done it without him.

Ask for Ryan!!! We worked with him and had such a great experience! No emails were left unanswered, no request was too small. He was very honest in his opinions, which was refreshing. Ryan did whatever he could to make our day as special as possible, and had wonderful suggestions that really made things run smoothly. The entire evening went off without a hitch, and we have gotten rave reviews on the food! Particularly the shrimp and grits - both from shrimp & grits officionados and foreigners that were in attendance who tried it for the first time! All of the staff were extremely helpful and really took care of my husband and me. We were asked multiple times if we needed any food, a refill on a drink, etc. Have recommended them to other brides planning their weddings in Charleston and will continue to! Amazing!!!

Ryan from Hamby's was a lifesaver during my wedding. My Mom and I have very different visions of how things should look at a wedding, and Ryan was able to meld the two ideas and create a look everyone loved.
We are getting tons of compliments on the food, from dedicated steak eaters to vegetarians, alike. Everyone is also saying how beautiful everything looked.
If you want a wedding caterer/planner that will allow you to sit back, relax, and let them do the leg work, pick Hamby Catering. I can't say enough about them, and will certainly use them for any other events I have!

What a wonderful company to work with. They had the great southern food that I was looking for and the servers who were at my wedding were the nicest people. Ryan was a dream to work with - he actually referred us to the wedding planner who we ended up using and everything went over so smoothly. I can not put in to a review how great Hamby and all the people who they referred me to were to work with!
I just wish Hamby had a restaurant that I could go to to get their DIVINE shrimp and grits and crabcakes!! Holy cow, their food is amazing. Book them, book them, book them!

Hamby's was excellent. The food is absolutely delicious. Many of our guests have told us it was the best wedding food they have ever had. Everything they did was of the best quality from the preparation to the display. Ryan McKenzie is the best at what he does. He made my wedding run perfectly. He made sure everything and everyone were in their places. He coordinated with the other vendors and made the entire process so smooth. I could not have asked for anything better than the friendly service and the utmost quality I received from Ryan and Hamby's.

Hamby's made the best day of our lives even better :) The food was fantastic and all of my guests loved it. The sweet potato biscuits and shrimp and grits were to die for! The station chefs and bartenders were very polite and friendly. We paid everything through Hamby's which was nice. The florist, cake, transportation and food was all included in one bill. So if that's something that entices you then Hamby's is your place. I hired Ryan M. from Hamby's as my day-of coordinator as well. He was amazing. Got everything done with time to spare and the space looked wonderful. I left it up to him to hang decorations and he knew exactly what to do. Ryan also was very understanding of our budget and worked with us to give us an incredible day. Out of the namy caterers in Charleston, I think Hamby's has the best, most-down-to earth staff and the best tasing food around :)
