Let me just start by saying WOW. We are so thrilled we had the honor of working with Shirley's Catering for our wedding. We had met with another caterer and they did not meet our expectations. We then were introduced to Shirley's and were just blown away. I have a gluten... Read More allergy, therefore being the bride, that can be difficult! Shirley's had NO problem accommodating this! When we went in for our tasting, everything was absolutely delicious. We couldn't even decide on our passed hor d'oeuvres because they were all so good and ALL gluten free! I felt so special because I could eat everything! The food was delicious, the presentation was delicious and Shirley and her staff are incredible. So kind and friendly. All of our guests were so impressed and raved about everything, especially the grilled cheese and mini butternut squash soup shooters -- so yummy! Thank you Shirley for making our day so special and making me feel so, so 'catered' too - we truly appreciated it!!!!!!

Shirley's Catering did a phenomenal job at our wedding. The decorating, food, and service were all top notch. I would highly recommend them for weddings or any other function or party. We will definitely be calling them again in the future. Thank you Shirley.

Display as delightful as the fare was delicious!

-Our contact was always prompt in responding and very accommodating in our requests from the initial tasting, to interfacing with the staff, to changing the final headcount just days before the big day. -The menu and catering-style options are varied and all mouth-watering with... Read More enough to satisfy guests with dietary needs or restrictions. -The presentation was beautiful and colorful with the fruit and veggie spread; the set-up was very accessible although the space was limited. -The staff kept everything replenished and hot, and packaged the ample amount of remaining food to be taken (which all re-heated almost as tasty as the day-of!) -We heard nothing but compliments from our well-fed guests.

Shirley's was great! I'm usually very picky about food, but loved everything I tried. I even had more than one of my guests tell me it was the best wedding food they ever had. And one of those ladies had been to 38 weddings in her time.
