I received so many compliments from my guests on the delicious dishes that Krause Caterers whipped up for us. Heidi is an experienced wedding caterer.

We were so happy to work with Heidi and her team. They went above and beyond to ensure that our wedding was spectacular. Her staff treated our family and friends like their own family. The food was delicious - lobster bake and BBQ chicken. From start to finish, Heidi and her... Read More team helped us with set-up and all the finishing touches. They wanted to ensure we enjoyed ourselves that evening. We would hire Krause Catering all over again! The menus are very straight forward and there are no hidden add-on costs; just an honest and wonderful company to work with. Thanks again for a fantastic night.

Great team...

Amazing - Heidi is wonderful to work with and affordable. No one else could touch her prices or service. Not to mention the food was amazing. Would use her again every time I have a catered event - no question!

We had a wonderful experience working with Krause Catering. From the moment we first talked with Heidi until the wedding mission was accomplished, we were confident in her companies ability to cater our wedding of 180+ guests. Krause Catering is a family business and they are... Read More very capable and experienced. Heidi was easy to work with and she was very responsive during the planing process. We went for more casual fare at our wedding and we were able to work with Heidi to come up with a BBQ menu that would offer something for everyone. They provided stationary tables of cheese, veggies and fruit, passed hot appetizers and an impressive BBQ buffet. (including the most delicious potato salad ever!) They also provided our bar service. We received many compliments on the food and we are very happy with our experience.

The food was absolutely delicious, and our guests couldn't stop talking about it! Heidi also lets you take the leftovers home; so, that was a great bonus! We are very happy to highly recommend Krause Caterers :)
