Holmes Catering was a pleasure to work with leading up to our wedding and on the big day. We were able to go to one of their group tastings and were happy that the food at our wedding was high quality like it was at the tasting. The food option...
s were vast, and the quality truly was awesome and not like 'typical' catering that tends to include overcooked meat, and bland sides.
During the planning process, Holmes Catering made it easy to see how much we would spend on food, which helped with our budgeting process. It was also very convenient that we were able to directly rent our linens from them as they took care of bringing them, setting them up, and cleaning them. On the day of, their staff was on top of it despite issues we had with our venue/lack of communication from the venue to the caterers. The staff members were attentive, professional, and kind. My husband and I were served at our table while guests went through the line, and they made sure to provide a to do box for us to take at the end of the day.
I'm so grateful we worked with Holmes!

Holmes Catering was just wonderful. From the initial contact to the day of the wedding, they were always available and easy to contact, very professional to work with, and kept in touch with us throughout the whole wedding process, which left u...
s very reassured come the wedding day. They have a quarterly tasting where we were able to go and try their food as well as meet other vendors. Holmes Catering brings their own tablecloths and décor and sets up beautifully. All we had to do was tell them the theme and what we were looking for and they brought the rest. The food was outstanding, many of our guests said it was the best food they ever had at a wedding. Plus, upon asking, they set the guest tables with china even though we had a buffet, they packaged up all of our leftover food to take home, they kept our self-provided wine and beer table stocked, and made my husband and I a plate of food during the wedding reception so we would not forget to eat. I would recommend Holmes Catering to anyone.

While their food and presentation is wonderful, it was incredibly difficult to get in touch with them. Even though it seemed like plenty of detailed notes were recorded at our initial meeting, I found out after the wedding that some of the food...
we requested was not actually served. They even took away the water and tea before dessert was served!
I was told that someone would call me about a month ahead of the wedding to finalize the menu and go over the payment process. Two weeks before the wedding, I still had not received the call. Then, when I called, I was told that the manager for my event would give me a call about a week ahead of the wedding to go over the menu and make sure everything would be set up the way I wanted. I never got such a call.

My sister used Tim Holmes Catering for her wedding three years ago, and I was very excited about using them for my wedding; however, I did not have a good experience with them. Over the last three years, they lost their small business charm and...
I felt as though I had to fight with them to get answers to my questions. At first, I communicated via email while planning my menu, but not all my questions were answered, even questions regarding food allergies. My husband is allergic to onions and my sister in law is severely allergic to gluten. I asked about onions and gluten in specific dishes. My question about gluten was ignored and not answered, and even though I was told onions weren't present in our main dish, they were. My sister in law had nothing to eat, because, surprise, gluten was in one way or another incorporated into every dish, and my husband couldn't eat our main dish. I decided to meet in person with Sarah since emailing didn't seem to work, and when we were trying to work out a menu that fit my admittedly small budget, I had another customer lecture me about caterers. I was already frustrated about my experience with Tim Holmes Catering, so the fact that a stranger was allowed to interrupt our meeting to tell me what I was doing wrong was incredibly unprofessional. They were the one vendor I regret using.

money. Their standard menus are great but they created my "sunday dinner" menu perfectly. I told them what I wanted and we got exactly that. They have countless items to use from their warehouse and all decorations, table settings, cups, silverware are all included in the price. They simply create a menu and give you a per-person cost. Its easy to figure out how much you will pay. The food was wonderful. The s'mores bar was a huge hit! And I loved the mashed potatoes. Wonderful people. What a wonderful choice we made when we picked them.

I used Tim Holmes for my wedding catering. Everything turned out decent, however, there were a few problems. I did not get all the decorations I picked out when I went to the warehouse. The displays looked ok, just not the look I was going for....
All of our leftovers got thrown away. This was a big deal because we had a ton of out of town guests and had over counted our head count in order to accomodate having leftover food to put in the hotel kitchen for our guests to snack on after the event. Most of our guests had flown in and had no way to leave the venue. That was the worst part. If you use this caterer, and know want your leftovers, make sure you let it be known the day of and provide the containers before the reception starts.

It truly was an amazing day for me and my husband. I did hear about Holmes at the wedding festivals so go check them out. And let me tell you how to know you have the right caterer..... you will have Whitney or Sara contacting you. If anyone wants more information feel free to email me. I live in Spartanburg and would be willing to share any info on these guys or pictures of what they created.

edding. They cut the cake very late and left a messy appearance. We had kitchen cakes that were supposed to be sliced behind the scenes and brought out on trays. They cut these in front of the guests and made a mess of the table. Also, we had tons of breads, pastas, dips left over, but the meat was gone before my parents were able to eat. We had 75 less guests come to the reception than what we quoted and paid for so there should have been plenty of meat remaining. Our guests were very pleased, however, there were a few things we felt could have been handled better as the bride/groom/and bride's family.
