I am writing this review based solely on my experience with Catering by Anita. I read all the reviews and thought the review by Pam trying to defend the performance of this catering company was pathetic. Pam states that there should have been a bartender and that dinosaur shaped chicken nuggets were a "fun" idea. As I sat there at this 50th wedding anniversary it was great to see all the older friends of the couple in attendance Majority of the people attending this function were of an older age which is expected at a 50th anniversary and sorry Pam they were not looking to get drunk so there was no need for a bartender. Dinosaur nuggets as a main course may be a fun idea when catering a child's birthday but not at a 50th anniversary. What we are talking about is knowing who your target market and what product this consumer needs. Basic Business 101!! Something Catering by Anita has no understanding of. Pam stating that someone was a "chronic complainer", "sticks in the mud" or "Comical" just shows the level of professionalism that this company has. Please stay away from this catering service as you will be disappointed. Something Anita is not concerned about because the check has already cleared!!!

I honestly feel bad for this family. To have a great occasion like a 50th Anniversary celebrated the way I saw is a disgrace. Then to have someone try and write in and defend this atrocity is pathetic. I have experience in this business from the consumer side and have recently attended multiple events as it is with the season. To say these poor people don't understand the business is an incorrect statement. What is not correct is Anita's understanding of the Catering career. The day before I attended this event I attended an event in Alexandria where the price per person was equal and the food and service was 100 times better. If you want bad attitudes, bad tasting food and an all around bad experience than you should call Catering by Anita... If not please call somewhere else.

I had been highly recommended to Anita for her great food and service. I paid her in full before the occasion which was not a problem. She showed up late to the occasion and the food was horrible. I realize that in the contract there can be substitutions but my parents really wanted a certain kind of food and if she couldn't provide it then she should have let me know. Needless to say she claims she spoke with me regarding the food substitution stating that she was having trouble getting the product from her distributor. I never received such a call. In the beginning before I signed the contract with her I told her if there was a problem to let me know I could get the product. Not only that, the food was just horrible she was there for two hours and when she left she took all the drinks with her. The other reason I selected Antia was because she lived within a couple miles of the facility I rented and I just don't understand why she could not have left the drinks for one more hour and come back after our party was over. If I needed a bartender she could have suggested it and that would not have been a problem. I paid her $26.50 per person and $13.25 for children under 6. Come on she definitely was paid for her services. It is not about the money I just don't want someone else to have the same experience we had with her so that is why I am writing this review. You live and learn. What a terrible first catering experience!

Hey pam why dont you get your head out of Anita's tail!! And before you start backin your butt buddy's catering at a party maybe you should show up and see how bad it was. Even if the dinasour chicken nuggets were a "fun" food how much fun do you think people who have been married for 50 years and their friends would have with them??? On top of that they werent even cooked all the way...most of the chicken nuggets ive had in my life are usually crispy....but these were smooshy and even cold!!! I would hate to see your old catering buisness if you think Anita's is so awesome!!

PS. I had the runs when i got home!! Now i hope you go to Anita's house and eat some of her great catering food and then you can sit on a toilet all night long!!!

First of all, I was also at the party and I don't remember seeing you in attendance unless you were Anita. In that case your response sounds about right. I have also worked in this industry before and this is clearly not a well run catering company. Anita did not get paid $2500 to serve food that she bought at Dash In before she arrived 30 minutes prior to the guests attending. There was not a bartender at a function for 80 yr people..sorry the family didn't have a bunch of senior citizen lushes!! As for the dinosaur nuggets..there were 3 kids there. Before Anita started a business SHE should have done some research. I don't care if you owned a catering business before, you weren't there and you didn't see or taste the food...Mind your business!!! If you are such a fan of Catering by Anita then you should choke yourself on one of her dry biscuits:) I will leave Catering by Anita in the hands of the Better Business Bureau or maybe even ABC's 7 on your side!!

I am responding to the review titled "Horrible All Around" because it was so ridiculous that I just couldn't. First of all, have you ever had a catered event before now? Obviously not. I in the past have worked in the catering business for a company that has now retired and I have also met Anita personally when she catered functions in the building that I worked. I have to wonder if you and all your guests are just a bunch of "sticks in the mud" and chronic complainers. One of the many parts of your review that is really comical to me is the comment that "chicken nuggets for the children were shaped like dinosaurs" OMG!!! Are you kidding, Anita had the nerve of serving a child at your party with food that might be fun!!! Give me a break!!! As far as her staying 2 hours and then taking her stuff when she left, that my dear is catering business. They are there to serve the meal and leave, they are not there for the party. As far as taking the drinks with her that is what is supposed to be done. Did you have a bartender? If so, they would provide the drinks for the rest of the party. If you didn't then shame on you for being stupid!!! At the company I worked and any catering service I have used has always told me at the first appt what is required of me and providing my own containers was told to me. I have even dealt with caterers that do not provide any food to the family. In my opinion before you go trying to ruin someone's business you should do some research about what you are griping about first and get your facts straight, but first, you might want to remove the stick from your tail!!!

Celebrating 50yrs of marriage. How do I begin? Anita was not very friendly at all! She was asked how she was doing and she responded "better if I had not gone out last night". That's professional. It felt as though we were inconveniencing her....reminder, that's what she was getting paid for. The menu(buffet style) was supposed to consist of: Virginia salted ham and biscuits, fried chicken, chicken salad sandwiches, roast beef sandwiches, macaroni and cheese, salad, fruit crackers and cheese. My family payed almost $2000 for horrible food. She charged $26.50 per person for this menu. We requested Virginia ham and biscuits...we received dry(not edible) biscuits with deli meat. Roast beef sandwiches which also tasted like deli meat. Macaroni and cheese that tasted as though we were in a cafeteria and chicken nuggets for the children that were shaped like dinosaurs. I don't think any of the food was actually prepared by her. She stayed for 2 hrs and when she was ready to leave she took everything with her, including coffee, tea, punch and even the cups. We had to go to Walmart and buy serving items to supply our guests with drinks after she left. We also had to purchase containers to take the remaining food home(to make my grandparents feel as though we weren't wasting). My grandparents were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. We had guests there who have not seen my grandparents in years. How disappointing to invite friends and family for a celebration and experience such horrible catering. I will never recommend this company and I will make sure everyone knows how disgusting the food is and how unprofessional she is!!
