Catering at Its Best catered my wedding of about 160 people, and we had a great experience with them. They worked with me to accommodate my family-style service request, which was brilliantly executed. And the food--our guests are still talking about how delicious it was! The clam recipe was really good, and the presentation of this item was really cool. Both the chicken and beef were super tender, and we especially loved the chimichurri sauce. I thought that the service was brilliant too, as all of my needs and guests' needs seemed to be addressed. I would highly recommend Catering at Its Best for any special occasion.

I have been to a few parties done by Catering At Its Best and the food was good at both of them. The staff seemed friendly and the prices were pretty good also.

I've used them in the past and had a decent experience. I'm told, the same exact events I've used them for in the past, are no longer worth their time. Fortunately, I've found other caterers that don't mind a budget of $1000 for 20 people on a wine tour, to be beneath them. They lied at first about why they changed their minds, until I pressed them for a real answer and that's when they came clean. Why they took it in the first place and then decided it wasn't worthy of them, at this point, I don't care anymore. I just recommend that you never, ever use them for a corporate event.

Pros: The way they used to be

Cons: The way they are now

We used Catering At Its Best for a work holiday party. The food was great and the staff that helped for the day was really nice. They kept the food warm all day, it was a day long buffet. They even helped up box up the remaining food for any late comers after the event was over.

I used Catering at It's Best for my April wedding and was beyond happy with how it turned out. With the exception of a couple small things, it was great. My planner, Bob, was FANTASTIC. Funny, friendly, and did almost everything I asked. The food was great. It was good at our tasting and just as good the night of the event. Our guest RAVED about it. The chicken marsala is amazing. And the canape trio is so worth the money. 3 appetizers for the price of 1. You can't beat that! The servers, for the most part, were great. One of them was very rude to one of my bridesmaids, but I contacted them and they promised it would be addressed. Other than that, the napkins were not folded the way I asked and I asked that not foliage be placed on the food plates, because it grosses me out. But they were real small things that I didn't even notice until afterwards. They are also very affordable. Overall, a great experience and I would recommend them to anyone.

Pros: Food, Planner Bob Edwards

Cons: servers not always the most pleasent

BEWARE!!!!!!!!! They left an extremely bad taste in my mouth. The food was good, it's too bad it got spoiled by the employees and owner of the company. Very disappointing. Lots of promises with no follow through and delivery of their words. Disrespectful. Unprofessional servers and bartenders, actually down right rude. I also found them to be very dishonest. The event was wonderful at every other level. I would never recommend Catering At It's Best to anyone I know. In fact, I am telling friends/family/acquaintances if they ever have an event, DON'T use CAIB for any reason. I'd rather starve than be subjected to that sort of disgrace again.

Pros: Good potatoes

Cons: Cons....says it all. Disrespectful. Dishonest.

We used CAIB for our wedding last summer. Toni is FANTASTIC - she realized we were renting something that was included in our package, and made sure to tell us even though it meant more work and no more money for her. The wait staff ws very professional, and the price was extremely reasonable. They have a number of different buffet packages to choose from, and for each one there is a huge list of selections for entree, appetizer, etc. The next time we have a catered party, we know who to call :)

PROS: Great selection, great staff
CONS: None
