We absolutely loved having Salthouse as part of our special day and we're so glad we discovered them. From our initial in-person consultation with Vince, we were hooked. His knowledge of the menu, logistics, bar service, and positive attitude is just what we needed. Everyone we worked with at Salthouse were courteous and professional. We must of gone through at least half a dozen revisions to our menu (due to budget and change in guest count) and Salthouse were extremely accommodating. Let's talk about the food! Our guests have been raving about the food since the wedding. The elevated low-country food was fantastic, fresh, and innovative. We selected crab cakes, pork nacho, and compressed watermelon for our passed hors d'oeuvre. They were all exceptional! For our dinner stations we chose a mac and cheese bar, braised shortrib with purple mash potatoes, and a shrimp and grits station. All fantastic! We also had an antipasto station with pickled vegetables, cured meats, cheeses, and deviled eggs. So awesome! Another note...typically the bride and groom are so distracted during the reception that they don't get a chance to eat. The Salthouse staff made certain that my wife and I were able to taste all the courses and even packaged up leftover food for us to take home. We highly recommend Salthouse for any event in the Charleston area.
Vince and his team were beyond incredible from beginning to end. We had them cater our rehearsal dinner and wedding both of which were absolutely delicious. I'm a vegetarian, my husband is a hunter, some of my family is kosher and a few of our friends are gluten free, so needless to say, we had a ton of dietary restrictions among the group for both events! Salthouse provided us with tons of options to satisfy all preferences and even offered to customize the dishes we selected. Aside from Vince's AMAZING service (fast responses, detailed emails, super attentive), what really wowed us was something Salthouse did on our wedding day. They heard from some of the servers at our rehearsal dinner that we had a few vegans in the group (my sister in law and her parents), which I hadn't included in our already lengthy dietary restrictions list as they weren't vegan at the time we booked. After this discovery, they showed up to our wedding with additional ingredients to prepare a truly beautiful vegan plate for them. If you want delectable food, one of a kind flavors and a memorable experience, go with Salthouse! I just hope I have another event in the future that gives me the opportunity to work with them again!
We booked Salthouse Catering to cater our wedding at the Gadsden House last weekend and they did not disappoint. The guests are still raving about the food and appetizers - best of season and oyster bar. Vince and the staff there were all kind, helpful and wonderful to work with throughout the entire process. We were able to set it all up easily even though we do not live in Charleston. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to get married in Charleston. They were great!
When it came to choosing a caterer, we knew we would be picky as my husband and I both appreciate good food. We did tastings with four caterers and Salthouse far exceeded the others while being in the same price range. Not only was the food great, but they put in the extra effort to make sure that the display was aesthetically pleasing and hid serving containers, etc. Vince was a dream to work with. Of all of our vendors, he was hands down the most responsive and most accommodating. The guests raved about how good the food was (the fried chicken was a HUGE hit with guests going back for seconds and thirds). There are a lot of catering choices in Charleston but I would HIGHLY recommend Salthouse for your wedding!
Salthouse Catering was AMAZING!!! Vince was so helpful throughout the entire process and truly listened to what we wanted. He was very attentive and accommodating to our needs as well and always got back to me in a very timely manner. He made our wedding day extra special making sure we got enough food after the ceremony and throughout dinner and the boxed up left overs were greatly appreciated at about midnight with a personalized note! The food was exactly what we expected and was so flavorful. Our guests loved it! Thank you again to the entire Salthouse Catering Team! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Salthouse elevated our wedding as a "Welcome to Charleston" culinary experience for our whole family!!! We were married at the end of October at Old Wide Awake Plantation. Vince and the whole crew were detailed and responsive from the tasting through the wedding! We focused a lot of our budget on catering and Salthouse delivered. We selected the farm table Southern antipasto for our cocktail hour (which Vince helped customize with cheese selections we wanted to include). It was beautiful and delicious. We then had three dinner stations: BBQ sliders, Build-your-own-Mac 'N Cheese, and Shrimp and Grits. Honestly, it was all incredible; we heard excellent feedback from guests on every station. Thankfully, Salthouse made sure we were not one of those couples who didn't get to try their wedding food! The staff made us an appetizer plate to enjoy before greeting guests, and then full plates for us to enjoy at dinner. All in all, I can't recommend Salthouse enough!!! Hire them for your wedding and rest easy: it WILL be incredible! PS The full budget bar pricing is also a very reasonable option to consider with your catering. So easy!
Absolutely fantastic catering service!! Vince was excellent in communicating with us about our wedding!! The food was amazing and the coordination of the bar and equipment rental services was extremely helpful!!
We had an absolutely wonderful experience with Salthouse on our September 17, 2017 wedding. Not only was the food delicious, but Vince was a dream to work with. He answered all of our crazy questions, helped us customize our menu and was so patient throughout the entire process. Additionally, the Salthouse staff at our event was so friendly and accommodating and truly seemed to enjoy their jobs. If you want a company that not only makes great food but makes you a priority as a client, chose Salthouse!
Book Salthouse Catering today! I cannot recommend Vince and his team more. My fiancé and I are Charleston locals and wanted to give our guests the perfect taste of the lowcountry. Salthouse knocked it out of the park. From our initial in-person consultation with Vince, we were hooked. His professionalism is unbeatable; he keeps his client's concerns #1 and his attention to detail is impeccable. He goes above and beyond to ensure the flow of your event is perfect, down to the rentals, timing of reception events and type of serving trays (tasks usually handled by a planner). Vince is also incredibly patient throughout the hectic planning process (spoken from the bride who must plan and research every detail). He never steers you the wrong way. The guests are still raving about the food. Salthouse focuses on seasonal, locally sourced foods. Everything is innovative, fresh and delicious, it will make all of your foodie partygoers happy. For cocktail hour, we passed Hors d'oeuvres which included a Local Cheese Crostini (the hubby is still drooling), Mini Crab Cake, Heritage Farm Smoked BBQ Pork and a Spicy Ahi Tuna Crisp (I want more!!). We also had a large antipasti table. We went with three tapas style stations for dinner: A braised short rib, country fried chicken with mac n’ cheese and Mahi tacos. The beauty of the Salthouse team is they are eager to provide service and quality to their clients. My fiancé and I considered popular Charleston caterers; however, once we spoke with Vince there was no competition. Salthouse insists on giving you the highest quality/service at reasonable prices. The service is top notch. The entire staff is incredibly kind and fun to work with! They take care of absolutely everything. Believe me, you will not regret working with them. Thank you Vince, Chef Todd and Salthouse for the most amazing wedding experience. Your professionalism and customer care were highly valued and much appreciated.
Arguably one of the most important aspects of any wedding is the food and Salthouse will not disappoint! We chose chicken and salmon dishes as our main course options and they were just as delicious the day of the wedding as they were on the day of the tasting! The passed hors d'oeuvres were delicious as well, all of our guests were raving about them! In addition, Vince and everyone working at our wedding truly went above and beyond to make our day great! While my husband and I were taking photos during the cocktail hour, they met us with hors d'oeuvres, water, and wine so we didn't even miss out on the great food! Go with Salthouse catering, you will be more than thrilled that you did!
Use them! All of my friends and family are now craving the food from our wedding. My aunt has already suggested we plan another family event so we can have an opportunity to use them again! From the initial conversation with Vince at Salthouse (who is a dream to work with) I knew I had a good feeling about them. They were so easy and fun to work with throughout getting the menu/pricing figured out & then the amazing tasting! Vince responded to any of my questions in a quick & detailed manor. He often answered questions I didn't even realize I had yet. Just when I thought I couldn't be happier with them, they blew me away at the wedding with their exceptional service. The food tasted even better than the tasting! I really cannot say enough about how wonderful of experience I had with Salthouse Catering! Perfection!
My husband and I are so happy that we chose to work with Salthouse Catering for our wedding. We had a destination wedding and really wanted to find a catering company that would "wow" our guests at a great price. We definitely found that in Salthouse. From the very beginning, our experience working with Salthouse was amazing. Vince was so responsive throughout the whole planning process, and he made sure we had everything exactly the way we wanted it. He was kind, very knowledgeable about the menu, professional, and was always quick to respond. On the day of the wedding, the food was absolutely delicious and the presentation was amazing. Our guests are still raving about how incredible the food was. And the fried chicken biscuits at the end of the night were such a hit. My husband and I were so busy visiting with everyone at our wedding that we did not get a chance to eat. But Salthouse put together several to-go boxes for us so to make sure that we were able to enjoy all of the delicious food. I cannot say enough great things about working with Salthouse. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a fantastic caterer. You will not be disappointed!
Can't thank Salthouse & Vince enough for the amazing job they did at our wedding on Folly Beach on 4/8. Out of 50 guests from New York and family who have businesses in the food industry, there was not 1 complaint and everyone kept saying how good the food and the presentation was. I heard from many different guests that it was by far the best food they've ever had at a wedding. Salthouse was our first tasting and we knew from the moment we got there, that we were going to choose them. Aside from the food being delicious, Vince was the easiest person to communicate with throughout the whole process and so attentive to all the little details. They set up our tables and chairs and centerpieces beautifully & everything went so smoothly. Thank you again so much, it was so appreciated!!
If you are planning a wedding or event in the Charleston, SC area and you are lucky enough that Salthouse has an opening- stop reading this and BOOK THEM NOW! Salthouse catered our 10.22.16 wedding and they were hands down the best decision we made. From the very beginning Vince was the most helpful, attentive and responsive person we worked with. He talked us through absolutely everything from the planning of our menu to the layout and timeline of our day. I was planning our wedding all by myself so having Vince as a resource for all of my questions and concerns truly helped me sleep at night. I am extremely picky/detail oriented and food was the most important part of planning for me. Salthouse went above and beyond all of our expectations. We went with three tapas style stations: A braised short rib, country fried chicken and mac n’ cheese and a New England lobster roll, all of which we HIGHLY recommend. The food looked like it came out of a gourmet magazine and it tasted even better. Absolutely every single one of our guests raved about the food and the service at our wedding. People are still saying it was the best food they have ever had – not just at a wedding! Everything was so innovative, fresh and delicious it made all of our foodie partygoers drool. It is not your typical “wedding food” all though I have no doubt they could whip that up if that’s more your style. The entire Salthouse staff from the chefs to the servers were incredibly kind and so fun to work with! They took care of absolutely everything! Please trust me when I tell you, you will not regret working with Salthouse. Actually, my Dad wants to throw another party just so he can eat the bourbon brown sugar gravy and work with Vince and the Salthouse crew again and that is how truly amazing and talented these guys are. Simply Incredible. Thank you Salthouse!!
I cannot say enough about the food and customer service of Salthouse Catering. They were more than helpful when I had questions or needed to change the menu. I loved working with Vince!
A-MAZING! Vince and his crew delivered one of the best wedding meals I have ever had. When walking and talking with our guests, we saw nothing but clean plates. Their attention to detail and plating really sets Salthouse a part from the others. Because of a last minute catering switch, we didn't have a tasting, but we trusted Salthouse and they delivered!
Vince and his team delivered a spectacular feast for our wedding in Charleston, SC. The food was delicious and the planning was made so much easier with them. I highly recommend Salthouse Catering!
We used Vince and the folks at Salthouse for our rehearsal dinner and our wedding reception, and they were wonderful! Not only was the food amazing (the only complaint I heard the whole weekend from any wedding guest was that they didn't have room in their stomach to eat more of it, and I heard a lot of "this is the best food I've ever had at a wedding,) but also the staff were very friendly and responsive. I highly, highly recommend them. ProTip: get the biscuit bar. You'll thank me later. -David Shiffman, groom, 3/13/16
The BEST caterer we could have imagined working with! Tanya and her team served our wedding guests sophisticated low country food that was delicious to eat and beautifully displayed! My husband and I are still getting compliments about the food and our only regrets are not taking the time to eat more of it ourselves! Most brides usually don't have a minute to eat or try the cake at their reception… the good news is that Salthouse catering sent us home with "to go" bags so that my husband and I could enjoy some late night food on our wedding night :)
Unbelievable Food and ServiceReviewed on 3/26/2014 Jessica B
Tonya and Todd are a perfect team. Tonya helped make the whole process of hiring a caterer so smooth. She was easy to talk to and didn't make us feel out of place while trying to make decisions. We mentioned we wanted a brunch wedding and what they provided for us went above and beyond what thought was possible. When we had our tasting, there was not a single item that we would have asked to change. The price was amazing for the quality of food we received. The service staff was impeccable the day of the wedding. They even brought passed hors d'oeuvres to us while we were taking pictures! I will hire Salthouse Catering if I EVER need to cater another event.
