  • The food from Coastal Catering was beyond our expectations! The portions were large, the food was hot and our guests raved about it. Joe went over our menu in detail at our tasting. He made great suggestions and helped us come up with the menu to fit our event and tastes. They were fantastic to work with and very flexible. We also had them cater our rehearsal dinner and brunch the next day. It was one of the best decision we made for our wedding weekend. We highly recommend them!

  • Joe and his team made our wedding experience 10X better! When you don't have to worry about the food or service, you can relax, enjoy and EAT on your wedding day! From emailing Joe and making changes, to meeting in person on last minute details, to having everything come together at the very end, everything was just great! We cannot thank Joe and his staff enough for having us worry free and of course the food was SO amazing! I was able to have my pasta station like I wanted, and my husband was able to have his favorite chicken dish! Our guest raved over the food and the service as well! Highly recommend for a wedding catering!

  • I'll be honest - I was terrified about meeting with catering vendors. There were a lot of options, and a lot of hidden costs, and frankly, a lot of really not nice people. I started emailing vendors nearly a year out from my wedding, and for many, it was like pulling teeth to get an email response. With Joe, this was never a problem. He was by far the most responsive, the most open about the costs and the tasting was out of this world. The day of the wedding, I was a little nervous because my venue is in the middle of nowhere with limited electricity and water, among other things, and I wasn't sure how the food would turn out under those conditions. Well, he blew me away. I had 230 people my wedding, and we had so many compliments on how great the food was. His crew was super nice and helpful, and I just couldn't rave about them enough!

  • I called to rent a beach walkway, which they do not carry here. I received a call the following day from a gentleman at Coastal, he actually called me in Massachusetts to give me the number of someone that did carry them. If I ever need to rent again it will be with Coastal. Thank you so much for helping me have less stress. Bonnie Scherff

  • We had two great experiences with Coastal Catering. Two years ago, our friends used Coastal Catering for their rehearsal dinner and wedding. The food was so good and memorable that we used Coastal Catering this year for our rehearsal dinner, wedding, and brunch. The food was absolutely amazing! Our guests raved about the food at all three meals, and there was more than enough food for everyone. Joe was very helpful with providing options and suggestions regarding the menus. He was easy to work with and was flexible with our times. The prices were very reasonable, especially considering the quality of the food and what we got for our money. I would definitely use Coastal Catering in the future for a beach weekend and would highly recommend them for any event.

  • We have used Coastal Catering for two years and have received excellent service, excellent food and excellent value both times. Joe is great to work with, quite responsive and very flexible. Most importantly, the food is fabulous and there is always plenty of it. Our guests have always left completely satisfied. You cannot go wrong with Coastal!

  • We used Joe and his crew for our rehearsal dinner. The vast majority of our guests were from out of town (Canada, Europe, and the Northeast) so we decided on a traditionally southern menu--- shrimp and grits, chicken and waffles, and pulled pork BBQ sliders. We still have family and friends raving about the food (especially the shrimp and grits!) and our wedding was almost a 3 months ago! The staff was super friendly and efficient. We use Coastal Catering at many of our events where I work, and they always do an outstanding job. Joe is very accommodating and will help create a menu perfect for your event!

  • This was such a surprise how amazing these guys were. When we arrived for our tasting at the country club, my then fiancé and I were a little nervous about the appearance of the building and grounds and staff. Joe came out and all of our worries melted and it was almost like we picked him then and there. There is nothing pretentious about Joe's food, just fantastic cooking that is elegantly displayed with minimum fuss and maximum efficiency. After signing our agreement we were in contact with Joe multiple times to change numbers and change dishes and add/remove various elements of the meal. Joe was incredibly responsive and always accommodating. The day of the event his staff was very prepared and extremely professional. Everything tasted delicious and it all looked amazing. Thank you so much Joe for all your help and for making our day such a success!

  • Coastal Catering and Events was the best choice for our wedding! The food was ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS. Like, I can't stress enough how amazing the food was! Everyone at our wedding was so impressed with the food. Besides being utterly delicious, Joe was great to work with and didn't bat an eye when the guest list changed 20 times. They were prompt and professional and super friendly when the food was delivered. Our budget was small and we paid less than $1000 to feed 35 people. We had grilled steak with chimichurri sauce, grilled chicken with tomato basil relish, shrimp and grits, roasted potatoes, grilled veggies, rolls with butter, a green salad with two different dressings, tea and lemonade, plus the chafing dishes, serving utensils, and dinnerware. I was worried there wouldn't be enough food for everyone, but we had plenty. There was even enough leftovers for brunch the next day. I highly recommend Coastal Catering and Events. You will not be disappointed!

  • I had several people tell me that ours was the best wedding food they'd ever had. The low country boil and BBQ were absolutely delicious and perfect for our island wedding. The servers were also top notch, as was the bartender. Joe was very responsive to emails during the planning phase and offered good advice as well. Highly recommend!

  • Working with Joe and Coastal Catering was a dream come true for our beach wedding at Ocean Isle Beach. Being from out of state, Joe was easy to get a hold off, and always responded within a day to our email questions. He was so accommodating with any of our food requests, and even created appetizers that were not offered on his catering menu. We even set up an additional tasting prior to the wedding, where we were able to try multiple new items to help decide on our final meal. Whatever you want, Joe can make it happen! His team was professional on our wedding day and our guests raved about all of the food….ESPECIALLY the beef brisket! We used Coastal Catering for our fiesta themed rehearsal dinner, our reception meal, and our morning after brunch and all of the food was different and delicious. Being from a family who is in the restaurant business and who love food, Joe and his team were the perfect addition to our wedding weekend!!

  • We went with this company based on price. If you are looking for something that is very budget friendly, this is a great company to use. I will say, the food is not going to be talked about the next day. None of my guests were very impressed. We got to the food over an hour after it was served (our own design) so I did not form an opinion based on that. I love the staff, they were absolutely friendly and professional. I was informed after the fact that they showed up at the starting time for the ceremony with in my opinion was late. I do not know all the reasons for this. Overall the food was decent and I had a great experience working with the company. Just know “you get what you pay for.”
