Most of the time you go to a wedding and think that the food was alright. You will NOT have to worry about those words coming out of your guests mouth when you have Southern Way Catering. The food was delicious and our guests had nothing but great things to say about it. They... Read More loved the station style we had and also the do it yourself select stations such as the sweet potato casserole and the cheese spread table. It was also so great and they even sent us home with a package of all our weeding food and beer just in case we were not able to eat it during the night. The servers we kind and professional. The staff also made sure that the bridal party during pictures and cocktail hour had the opportunity to have some off the small passed plates. We have nothing but great things to say about their services.

To say Southern Way simply "catered" our wedding reception would be an understatement! Not only does Southern Way create and serve a customized, delicious, modern, Southern menu that will leave your guests talking, but their customer service is outstanding. I had the pleasure... Read More of working with Jesse, Southern Way's VP, and Cameron. Our voices as the clients were heard and respected throughout the entire process - customizing menu items to reflect our taste, making adjustments to help stay on budget, even helping plan and organize our actual reception. The staff were very knowledgeable and experienced, offering great advice and suggestions without being pushy in the least. Our reception flowed seamlessly and not once did I worry about anything other than enjoying our special day. (Jesse even pried us away from the photographers and brought us food and drinks the entire evening!) Thank you Jesse, Cameron and Southern Way Catering for helping make our wedding day so enjoyable!

Southern Way is awesome! I changed my menu and options so many times and they were gracious and understanding with those changes the entire time.

I don’t know where to begin. I keep going back to the day after Meghan (bride) and Cameron (groom) first met with Jesse. Meghan was “blown away” by his personality and passion for his work. I insisted she meet with others before she made her final decision and after having... Read More other caterers to compare him to, we all knew he was the one for their wedding. That being said, I cannot describe what I felt when I walked into the venue. From the attention paid to us (the wedding party) by Jesse and his staff, to the décor, food, arrangement of the room. It was truly a magical. It brings tears of joy to my eyes as I type this email. Jesse and his staff are incredible. His attention to detail was spot on. EVERY promise he made was fulfilled and then some. The bride, groom and bridal party and guests wanted for nothing the entire evening. Stephanie was an angel. She was at the top of her game all night. As much as I tried to imagine how the night would go, Jesse surpassed any dreams I may have had! I am sincere in saying “They are simply the best” and they have my eternal thanks and gratitude for the magical night they created for my son and daughter in law’s wedding. All the guests were awed by Jesse and his entire staff as well. And the food, I am still getting feedback on how beautiful and delicious everything was. You can be assured that we will employ Jesse and his team for ALL our future catering needs. Thanks again Jesse and Stephanie, YOU ROCK!!!!

This caterer is the BEST! Met with them once to go over expectations and the menu. They made suggestions as requested. The reception was set up above expectations. First class service. Friendly staff. Excellent food. Guests said it was the best food ever. At the reception, staff... Read More were right there when we needed them, they made sure we (the bride and groom) had a drink when we didn't have a chance to get to the bar, had food when we couldn't even get to the food stations, and even sent us home with plenty of drinks, food, and cake. It was the best service ever since as bride and groom, you really don't have a chance to eat or drink at a reception - too busy greeting your guests. This caterer goes above and beyond as well as delivering the best food you have ever tasted. They take pride in their service.
