Affordable Catering blew us and our guests away! I assumed that by the name and cost we would get what we paid for- decent, typical wedding food. I couldn't have been more wrong! The hors d'ourves (crab stuffed mushrooms and a few dips) and main meal (raspberry glazed pork,... Read More steak, and stuffed chicken) was delicious! The two servers, both men, were extremely accommodating to us and our guests. We are still getting compliments on the service and taste of the food! Thank you to Stephanie and the Affordable Catering team for an excellent experience!

Affordable and Amazing

Affordable Catering was amazing! Firstly, they allow you to make payments so you don't have to front the money all at once. This was especially nice for us, who were paying for the whole wedding ourselves and did not have money to throw around. The food and service was... Read More wonderful! After taking pictures and were finally able to sit down we were greeting by a very nice server who already had out appetizers plated and sitting on our table for us. The food was to die for! We had a sirloin carving station and the meat was cooked perfectly as well as stuffed chicken marsala (which I still have guest raving about). The servers always cleaning up and never in the way which was amazing. We even had food left over which they boxed up for us! Pricing was very reasonable and they are always in the office to answer questions or meet.

Great food, great service, great value!

I had my wedding catered by Affordable Catering and all I can say is wow. They were amazing. The staff was professional, the set-up was beautiful and most importantly, Stephanie, whom we hired as our day-of coordinator, was phenomenal. She made sure that everything looked... Read More perfect and that me and my wedding party were well taken care of. We had a heavy hors d'oeuvres menu and everything tasted great. The staff was dressed very professionally and things could have not gone more smoothly. I loved this catering company, from the initial consultation with Stephanie, to the tasting and all the way through the end, it was exceptional. Thank you so much for making a perfect day even more so!

We purchased a wedding package through our venue and one of the caterers available to us was Affordable Catering. We were able to attend a tasting and got to taste their most popular items. The food was good and we decided to hire them. They have an absolutely huge selection of... Read More foods to fit any type of menu from BBQ to Italian, you name it and they probably have it. They truly lived up to their name. The food was affordable but also delicious. I heard remarks from guests all night about how amazing the food was. We did a buffet with more of an Italian twist and everything was great. The catering staff for our wedding were helpful, they made sure to serve us (the bride and groom) and consistently checked in throughout the night to see if they could do anything for us. They also provided us a cake cutting service and served cake to our guests. They also had great personalities. We even managed to get them to dance for a minute or two at the end of the night. We would definitely recommend them to anyone in need of a catering service.

I hired Affordable after having a friend recommend them. They made everything super easy. The day of the wedding I literally had nothing to worry about. They had everything set up and ready.

Affordable Catering catered my wedding in March and we couldn't be more pleased! Obviously as the name suggests, they are one of the most affordable caterers in the area. But don't that deter you from giving them a chance. From the first email I sent, communication was quick and... Read More friendly. My husband was skeptical, but after we had our tasting, he was sold! The tasting made choosing from their extensive menu even harder because EVERYTHING was delicious, even things we would normally not eat. On my wedding day, the biggest compliment that I can give is that our servers were basically invisible, in a good way! They were so friendly, the buffet tables were set up perfectly and they made sure everything was taken care of without being intrusive. I hired them for an extra half hour to do my napkin folds and they were perfect! I had mentioned a couple of decor pieces I had for my buffet tables, one of which I ended up not using. The guys were so thorough that they looked through every box of my decor looking for it because they knew it was supposed to be there (until my coordinator told them I ended up not using it). I appreciated their dedication to making sure everything was just right. My guests RAVED about the blackberry key lime chicken, and everything else for that matter!

My husband and I could not be more pleased with Affordable Catering. We booked them pretty far in advance so we had a couple changes in our day-of-coordinator. I was very nervous about this initially. However, the staff communicated very well with each other and we had no... Read More problems at all! The food was fantastic! Several of our guests came to us multiple times to compliment the food. The day-of-coordinator (we had Alexa) was very attentive and kept the event moving smoothly. We also booked their bar service. We were extremely happy with the prices and the bartender. He knew everyone's drink order as they were approaching. He also found out that I (the bride) was drinking Stellas and that they were going pretty quickly. So he cut the guests off and made sure there was enough for me for the evening.

They do not bring enough food for the guests. At my wedding there was not enough meat left all that was left were the sides. If you decide to use this company tell them you have more then you really do so that you can have enough for everyone. Update: called than about this...
