Your search for the best catering company in Charleston ends now! B.Gourmet Catering is hands down THE BEST in town. We worked together on every single detail of my wedding menu and bar package for over a year. Brooke, Lauren and the rest of their team are the real deal. After... Read More our wedding, I received more texts about how incredible our food was than anything else (and this was a wedding of picky New Yorkers with very high standards)! I seriously daydream about Brooke's pasta. My husband and I are in an ongoing battle about which sauce is better - the pesto or the alla vodka. It's all amazing and we only wish Brooke would open a restaurant. From start to finish, every bite was amazing, plus you do not get better customer service than the B Gourmet team. Book them while you can if they have your date available!

Despite hurricane Irma, and a flooding dock at Boone Hall Bec Safe transported the bar to a safe location and kept on serving our guests never meeting a beat. We had ZERO worries the day of the wedding and what more can you ask for? Amazing food, EXCELLENT service and a custom menu and bar menu? You will win everyone you pick B Gourmet.

Perfection! B. Gourmet was the perfect match for our wedding at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens. Having a destination wedding in Charleston can be amazing yet overwhelming at times with all of the choices you have for vendors. We met with B. Gourmet early on and knew from the... Read More beginning they would be the perfect fit for what we were looking for. They put together a menu that showcased all of our favorite foods which was important to us! Everything was easy with them. I knew having them for our catering company I could focus on other vendors because I knew they would take care of us from start to finish. From the very start Brooke and her team were available to answer any questions that we had. We booked them with over a year before our wedding and during communications and tastings they felt more like friends than a wedding vendor! We relied heavily on email communication throughout our entire engagement since we were not from Charleston and no matter how busy they were we always felt like a priority to them. I was the bride that had new ideas for our menu every other month and they were patient and willing to work with me on any new ideas that I had. As we approached the wedding day and budgets became tight they worked with us to make necessary changes to our menu to keep us within our wedding budget which we are so grateful for. As for the day of it was perfect! The food was DELICIOUS! I knew our guests would love our food after our tasting with them. Our guests raved about how awesome everything was and continue to talk about how amazing the food tasted. Everything was perfect! My husband and I woke up the next day and ate the leftovers they packed for us for lunch! Brooke is an amazing chef and puts together an amazing team to work with. I could not imagine our special day without B. Gourmet as our catering company!! We can't thank them enough for providing not only amazing food but also excellent customer service.

When my fiance and I went to Charleston for a tasting we met with two caterers. B. Gourmet was one of those two, they were around the same price as the other but the quality was very different!

One of our appetizers was so wonderful my fiance and I even thought about making that another station for the main course, which we could have because B. Gourmet can do ANYTHING you would like! We did fruit skewers so our guests would have something crisp and refreshing, fried green tomatos, and pork tacos as our appetizers. We had a terrific salad with spinach, strawberries, pecans, and goat cheese. For our main course we did two dinner stations, the shrimp and grits, and the carved flank steak. I personally do not even like shrimp and grits, but these are not like any other shrimp and grits I have ever tried before. Even the flank steak was tender and juicy. So many of our guests have told us that our food was the best they have ever had at any wedding. The only thing I wish is that B. Gourmet was open for lunch and dinner so my now husband and I could dine with them every time we go back to Charleston. They are AMAZING, and if we ever do any other events in Charleston they will be the only place we will use. Also they take care of all of your rental, and bar service needs. It is a 1 stop shop, and as an out of town customer planning my own wedding it was very helpful. Again, I can not express enough how wonderful Brooke (the owner and chef), and Hannah (the planner, go to, everything else) are to work with and I would recommend them to anyone.

It was great to work with a caterer that coordinated our bar and rentals all under one roof, as this was one less thing to have to coordinate on my own. Not to mention, the food was PHENOMENAL! We are both from New York where weddings have more food options than people present and the food is always the main attraction. I was so worried about the food not being up to par with what my northern guests were used to. There was nothing to worry about! Brooke is an excellent chef and the southern style chef stations were a HUGE HIT! Our guests are still talking about the mac & cheese and shrimp & grits stations!

We hired B. Gourmet for our Oct 2015 wedding. We didn’t get to taste w/ them beforehand, but when we finally did, we were excited to have them for our big day. Unfortunately, our guests never got to taste their food. Our wedding happened during the flood. Our venue closed the... Read More morning of, but we were able to pull something together where we were staying in IOP. Our hair/makeup artist, photographer, officiant, & all of our guests made it out. B. Gourmet did not. One of our vendors who owns a restaurant w/ her husband heard we were going to be w/ out food & offered to cater on the house so our guests wouldn’t go hungry. (Thanks Toffino’s South!) Arrangements were made to hold the celebration we originally planned w/ a smaller group the following week, but a family emergency w/ my husband’s mother cancelled that too. In the weeks that followed, B. Gourmet refunded us their service charges. When the dust settled, we reached out to them hoping to come to a fair resolution for both sides. We didn’t feel that the refund (which was less than roughly 1/4 the total cost of our contract) was fair, especially b/c we never received any food! The owner directed us to her lawyer, leaving us no choice but to get ours involved. He didn’t get anywhere either. Ultimately, we aren’t disputing that B. Gourmet didn’t breach our contract. But we feel strongly they didn’t do the right thing. In contrast, our baker drove halfway across town to hand-deliver our cupcakes to an ICU hospital room (thanks Delicious Desserts!). Our florist gave us a credit that we utilized this spring (thanks Charleston Flower Market!). Our photographer flew back in from SanFran to capture the vow renewal we had in Mar (thanks Paige Winn!). Not one of these vendors was contractually obligated to do what they did for us. The odds of any of you experiencing the perfect storm of events that we did is probably 0%. But things CAN & DO go wrong. A wedding is a huge expense, so choose who you work w/ wisely.
