  • We couldn't beat the service and helpfulness of Backyard Bistro. From planning to execution, they were on it every step of the way.

  • I am so glad we went with Backyard Bistro as our wedding caterer! Eileen made the process incredibly smooth and easy at every step of the way. We had a buffet and our guests really loved the food! The staff that came were very professional and responsive to what was happening. We also hired our bartenders through them, which made everything nice and easy. They served the beer and wine we bought ourselves. I highly recommend Backyard Bistro! Their service and food really made our day even better!

  • We had to re plan our wedding on the Tuesday before the event (4 days before) because hurricane Florence was Forecast to hit during the weekend our indoor/outdoor wedding. The responsiveness on Eileen in the menu selecting and budgeting process was great- my parents were in the Wake county while my husband and I live in Houston. They provided my parents with a tasting to pick out entree options, pick out a few appetizers to have passed around during cocktail hour, and worked around my hustbands celiac requirements.

  • Backyard Bistro catered our wedding recently and we were so impressed! From the beginning, they were extremely responsive and very accommodating. There's a variety of options on the menu to cater to various diets (we had some vegetarians/non-pork eaters at our wedding), and were perfectly willing to cater two special meals for two vegan guests. Moreover, they provided cold drinks for our guests to bring out to the ceremony (it was an outdoor wedding in July), which was such a great touch. The staff are very professional and efficient, and they made sure to take care of my mother, who was handicapped at the the time, by getting her food and drinks. They also made sure that we, the couple, had plenty to eat and drink throughout the night. Last but not least, the food is delicious. So many of the guests have commented on just how good the food was and the spread was exactly what we had in mind, since we were aiming for a more laid-back, Southern meal. Personally, the jalapeno cornbread an... Read more

  • The Backyard Bistro staff cooked and served a beautiful dinner for my daughters wedding. Guests made many complements on the delicious dinner. I was surprised when our planner suggested them as a caterer, but after the tasting, we realized BYB has amazing chefs and wonderful options for all budgets. We chose a three entrée buffet menu. Delicious, hot food and service from a very attentive staff.

  • We are so glad we worked with Backyard Bistro for our wedding. We worked with Eileen, and she was always professional, prompt and detailed in her responses. We also loved that she was flexible, transparent, and helped us find the most value for our budget. We got so many compliments for the delicious food of course! The catering and bartending teams were professional, friendly and thoughtful - they even saved a last bottle of cheer wine for my husband and I without us even asking them to! We highly recommend working with Backyard Bistro.

  • We had Backyard Bistro cater both our wedding and our rehearsal dinner and both were fantastic. We had a whole hog BBQ for the wedding and an oyster roast for the rehearsal dinner. Coordinating the catering and number of people was incredibly easy. Eileen Johnson of the catering team was super responsive and easy to work with via email. She let me change the number of guests even a few days before the wedding, which was so nice and helpful! The food was fantastic for both the rehearsal and the wedding. We are still hearing from our guests about how great the wedding food was. The only downside was that almost all the food was eaten so we didn't enjoy any leftovers (which is not a real complaint--everyone loved it!). Backyard Bistro provided tons of things with catering, like ice, drink canisters, set up, servers, bartenders, etc. They were a pleasure to work with and made sure our event was extremely successful!

  • Backyard Bistro was great to work with for our wedding. We were able to sample the menu before we chose what we wanted and they were very accommodating. Everyone loved the food and they were very easy to work with and knowledgeable about what we needed!

  • I absolutely LOVED working with Backyard Bistro for our wedding. They created a custom menu that included 3 "themed" buffet stations and 1 dessert station. We had a mexican food station (flautas, chips, salsa, guacamole, cheese sauce), southern BBQ station (BBQ, cole slaw, hush puppies), and a "fancy" food station (steak, summer salad, crab cakes, salt potatoes). The biggest hit was the Mexican food station. The BBQ was good but the hush puppies were a little soggy (it was super hot and humid and rained so that may have contributed). The salad, crab cakes, and potatoes were absolutely delicious. It looked like the steak was a prime rib type of steak and was good but very very salty. We originally tasted thinly sliced cuts of beef tenderloin but did not get that on our wedding day. We also used Backyard Bistro's bartenders. They were extremely friendly and accommodating. There was a mix up at one point in the night and they were getting ready to leave halfway through the wedding but ... Read more

  • Backyard Bistro was great to work with for our wedding. We were able to sample the menu before we chose what we wanted and they were very accommodating and were even able to make 2 special vegan meals for myself and my sister who are both vegan. The chef and staff that we dealt with the day of the event were all very nice and professional and the food was great. I would definitely recommend them for any catered event.
