I CAN NOT say enough about Scott and his staff. I honestly don't even know where to begin. From the very start every time I saw Scott he assured me that everything would be just perfect and he would be 100 percent sure of it. He took care of myself, my husband, and my family as... Read More if they were his own. Our wedding was extremely organized and so well put together because of him. His sweet words as I am walking out to marry my husband still tear me up as I think about how he completely treated me as his own daughter through out the entire wedding planning process. Not only that, but his food.. Oh my gosh HIS FOOD! It was unreal. We got so many compliments from every single guest I spoke to about how amazing every bite was. Even the children complimented his cute children's meals he puts together for them! His staff completely took care of me the entire night, checking in with me constantly to be sure everything was perfect, to show me the beautiful cupcake display they put together as dancing began, to make sure I had a drink in my hand and was enjoying myself. I truly can not say enough. Thank you Scott and everyone involved in our wedding. You literally made my dreams come true and I can not thank you enough.

I cannot say enough about Scott and his team at Catering by Scott. I was referred by a high school friend who said how great Scott was and described him as a wedding planner in disguise. Every word was true. From booking our September wedding, to the tasting, rehearsal, and... Read More right down to getting everyone set to walk down the aisle, he and his team were such an integral part of our day! I ran into a number of issues with our venue and Scott was a phone call away and took care of it all. I have to elaborate on this a little: I received a phone call from the venue an hour before our ceremony was scheduled saying there was an issue with our center pieces. Everything had been set up plenty in advance and I was in our hotel room getting into my dress. I was told that one of us needed to come back to the venue to remove the glitter mason jars from each of my tables and wash them out- outside of the building. In total panic mode I called Scott's cell. He could hear I was fighting back tears, told me not to worry about a thing and that was that. I arrived to the venue an hour later to find his staff had gone out and bought all new mason jars (on their own dime) and had them all replaced. What a lifesaver and kind heart. On to the ceremony- Scott and his team really took the reigns and ran the show flawlessly (we had no wedding planner and looking back would have been completely lost when it came to timing/logistics between the ceremony, pictures, introductions, etc.) The food was beyond delicious and we received so many compliments from our guests as well as how great the staff was! They organized our sparkler send off which went off without a hitch and at the end of the night had everything boxed and packed up. My husband and I left with a to-go bag put together for us to enjoy when we got back to the hotel. Again, I can't express how grateful I am to have had Catering by Scott a part of our day. I would recommend to any and all brides a million times over-you will truly be treated like his own daughter.

It'll forever be tough to put into words how thankful my husband, family,, and I are that Catering by Scott catered our wedding- and beyond that- helped make this time in our lives such a special one. At the time we booked our venue- they were the exclusive caterer and sold us... Read More on our first meeting. The overwhelming love Scott has for catering, weddings, and making brides feel as incredible as they should- is indescribable. Scott made my husband and I feel like family upon our first meeting and remained incredibly helpful throughout our planning process. His family and staff did the same each time we called or came in. Scott did a great job helping us prep for our big day by providing us multiple meetings and delicious tastings. He was also a HUGE help during our rehearsal and day of events!! Shawn Poirier was an incredible help as well as he touched base with me often throughout the night and made me feel like the most special, beautiful Bride. Lastly, this wouldn't be a complete review without commenting on the food- it was simply amazing. We had the grilled salmon, basil chicken, and Prime Rib- all were phenomenal and the desserts were the best I have ever had.. also, my cake was beautiful and exactly what I wanted! I wish we could add pictures to this review :) Thank you again for helping us successfully plan the wedding of our dreams!

Scott and his staff were truly amazing! They are more than just a catering company. Scott gave us advice that made our wedding that much better!

My husband and I got married this past July and we absolutely loved working with Scott and his crew! The food he served at our wedding was amazing and all of our guests said how much they loved it and that it was the best wedding food they have ever had! Not only did they do an... Read More awesome job with the food, but through the whole planning process I felt like I was part of his family and that he would do almost anything for us. Even after meeting only one time, we saw him at a wedding show and he immediately remembered us and all the details of what we had spoken about. This very much impressed me because it showed how much he cares about his clients and really does treat each one as if they're the only ones he is working with, which is obviously not the case with how busy he is! My parents came to Columbus multiple times just to eat at his cafe and do some more finishing details of planning! His crew also packaged up leftovers for my husband and I to enjoy after the wedding and we are so happy they did! I highly recommend Scott and know you will have the most amazing experience if you go with him!

My wife and I were so glad we chose Scott to cater our wedding. Scott was so helpful throughout the whole process of our engagement leading up to our wedding day. He sat down with us, asked a ton of questions, and we were able to create the wedding reception that we always... Read More wanted. The day of the wedding, Scott and his staff made us feel like a king and queen. Literally, everything was taken care of, even packing a to go bag of food we could enjoy before we left for our honeymoon. If you are looking for a personalized, high quality, and dependable caterer, Scott is your man!

Let me start off by saying our day was beyond our wildest dreams because of Scott and his wonderful family and team!! Needless to say we were very excited about our engagement but at the same time nervous about all of the planning and details that come along with a wedding. When... Read More we left our first meeting with Scott our minds were at ease and we knew he was the one we would go with. We walked out of the restaurant smiling from ear to ear! All of his reviews say he treats the bride like a daughter and that is 100% FACT!!! He is so much more than a caterer. He helped us find a venue that matched what we were looking for, he helped with decor and had fantastic advice throughout the process. You do not need a wedding coordinator if you choose to work with Scott...he takes on that role! When our limo arrived at the reception we got out and wondered what to do next then he appeared and gave direction to my bridal party then took my husband and I to a separate area to have champagne and apps. This was amazing considering you do not get much time to yourselves on your special day! He even helped with my hair clip (he has daughters haha) When it comes to the food he knocked our guest's socks off. Compliments regarding dinner have been nonstop!! He does a family style setup which cuts back on the time it takes for everyone to get served. It probably took less than 10 minutes for every single table to have their hot full customized meal in front of them! He told us when we were creating the menu that he could do anything we wanted and he did! We had brisket, chicken piccata, Scott's famous mashed potatoes (Oh. My. Goodness.), five cheese macaroni with homemade noodles (and he added bacon and chives on the tables as a mini bar request), and asparagus. Our hourdourves included a huge veggie, cheese cracker and olive display plus the servers walked around with his award winning tomato basil soup shooters and grilled cheese (amazing!). HE NOT ONLY DOES DINNER HE WILL MAKE YOU A FABULOUS CAKE AND DESSERT BAR!!!! This was huge to us to streamline the process and cut back on vendors. His cakes and desserts are phenomenal and after you try them you will not want to use a cake vendor. His daughter made us homemade flavored marshmallows and he setup a smores bar!!! On top of that Scott makes a fruit display with a mound of chocolate covered strawberries in the middle. Where else can you get that?!?! I could go on for days about how fantastic Catering by Scott is. He made it possible to plan a wedding in 4 months flawlessly. We feel like we had the wedding of the century and it was largely because of this man. I encourage anyone to at least have a meeting with him because it could change everything and allow you to be excited rather than stressed! So much love for Scott, his family and his team❤️

Scott and his family and staff are the best! They were so friendly at all of our planning meetings and their food most importantly is delicious!

My wife knew Scott long before I did. He has a restaurant on the East side and she and her co-workers frequent it for lunch. The first time I met him, Scott told me I was the luckiest guy in the world. He has always treated my wife just like a daughter and this is the promise... Read More he made to us when we sat down to come up with a menu. He has a creative approach; he asked us what we would pick if we went out to dinner that night. I told him that I would have ribs, which did not set well with my wife! We are not having ribs for our wedding-no way! Scott, laughed at my wife's response, saying, I think I have the perfect idea for a menu. We had pork tenderlion, brisket, salad, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese...it was very Americana and fit well with the venue, as like some of you, we got married in a barn. He also helped us to find the venue, the Ohio Wildlife Center. He was involved from the get go. He helped to plan and coordinate everything. He was there for our wedding rehearsal, the day of the wedding he even stayed for the ceremony, helping, leading, directing and making sure that his team was on point, which they all were. The staff was professional and attentive. The food was delivered on time, set up promptly, and was hot and cold as appropriate. As an old restaurant employee, I could tell he was really, really good at this, because you notice the little details and can appreciate the level of difficulty required in coordinating and executing a menu for that many people. The cupcakes were delicious, I'm told, lol, because they weren't intended for us. We got a ton of compliments on them from our friends and family. They disappeared almost as quickly as they were laid out on the display. Our wedding cake was simple and elegant in presentation, and it was amazing. It was a lemon-raspberry cake that was so good, we ate it for 5 days. I was sad when we had to get rid of the leftovers. It was at the end of the night where the little touches were best illustrated. As we were getting out of our formals and into normal clothes and carrying things out to the car, one of the caterers came up to me with a big bag full of leftovers. This was just for my wife and I and he said, and I will never forget it... "You don't have to eat White Castle tonight!" To which, I laughed, and remembered that the day had gone by so fast that i really hadn't had that much to eat and neither had my wife. Oh, and there were chocolate covered strawberries included which went over very well that night! So, to summarize, if you want someone that will be there from the start, guide you along, make suggestions, help out, deliver on and exceed your expectations, then you need to pick Catering by Scott. He simply took our special day and made it that much better. And if you find yourself out on the east side in the Bexley area, stop in his place for lunch, he'll probably shake your hand, ask you how your day was, hug your wife, make you laugh and treat you like family. Because in the end that's what it's all about.

Walking into the Venue he had set up for me, I was at a loss for words, it was spectacular. Im still dreaming about the food, we didn't want to do a buffet or plated so he recommended we do stations and Im so happy we did. We had a pasta station, Mexican stations, Asian Station, salad bar, carving station and even the end of the night he set up a late night burger and hot dog bar.
