  • We have been emailing back and forth with Alison at Durham Catering Co and she has been accommodating our needs! We are trying to be frugal and she has never hesitated to take the time to revise our menu. We appreciate her patience and time answering all of our questions because (it is our first wedding) and we have no idea how catering works! She has been so helpful so far! Will post another review after the wedding!

  • My husband and I got married in Durham this past summer. Alison at Durham Catering Co. did an excellent job of helping us select our dinner menu. We ended up deciding on a southern spread buffet style complete with pulled turkey and smoked brisket. No only did we get to enjoy the delicious meal ourselves during our reception, Durham Catering Co. also made sure we had "go-to" boxes at the end of the night. I've received so many compliments on the smoked brisket from guests, and I can personally attest it was incredible. We were extremely pleased with the high quality product and service that we received for our wedding. Highly recommend for your event in the Raleigh-Durham area!

  • Alison and Durham Catering were incredible to work with! We made our decision based off the excellent reviews and were not disappointed. We decided to do a bunch of small plates for our wedding which as we learned was more work but was so worth it. We loved all of the dishes so much and so much creativity went into the food. It was all very delicious and exceeded our high standards. All of our guests commented on how good the food was all evening long. Alison made the extra efforts to make the event special and it was so easy to coordinate the rentals through them as well. Highly recommended and we hope to work with Durham Catering again in the future

  • Hiring Durham Catering company for our wedding at the Cookery was the best decision we made in planning our wedding. Alison was our coordinator and she responded to every single one of our frantic questions, and was always calm and helpful. They basically pulled off the entire event, as we didn't have a wedding planner. The pricing was excellent and everyone loved the food. It was important to us that the food be good and that there would be vegetarian options that even meat eaters would enjoy, and they did. DCC listened to us, ACTUALLY listened to us, and got us everything we wanted within our budget. We loved that it is a local, woman owned company that pays their employees a living wage. Just wonderful.

    Will, it was truly our pleasure to work with and serve you! I would hardly describe you as frantic...you were a joy through and through!

  • DCC catered our wedding at The Cookery at the beginning of March. Everyone RAVED over the food! We chose the BBQ buffet option. I was up at 6am the next morning munching on left over Mac-n-Cheese! Highly recommend these folks for any and all catering needs!

    Thank you Emily!!! It was such a pleasure to work with you and to serve you and your family and friends!

  • We used Durham Catering Co for our recent wedding, and couldn’t be happier with the results! After exploring a couple of catering options in the triangle area, we ended up choosing Durham Catering Co because of the exceptional customer service and communication throughout the process. Alison did a fantastic job of helping us understand all of the associated costs, and the tasting was both fun and informative for us selecting the perfect menu for our guests. As for the day of, everything went off without a hitch- the staff set up all of our linens and place settings, made sure there was snacks and drinks ready when we arrived with our wedding party, set up a refreshment station for the band, and kept us on time throughout the night. The mini beef wellingtons were delicious hors d’oeuvres, and the braised short ribs and crab cakes were both exceptional main dishes (barely any filler in the crab cakes!) Highly recommend to anyone looking for a caterer in the triangle area.

    Brides like you make it all worthwhile, Steph! What a fun night with your beautiful family and friends!

  • Durham Catering catered my wedding @ The Cookery. Countless people told us it was the best wedding food they had ever eaten. The food is delicious. The staff is kind and attentive. We had a couple of small issues when it came down to execution, but the team at Durham Catering immediately attended to them in a professional and friendly manner. We were honored to have such a rock star team cater our wedding and would highly recommend them!

    Thank you Mark for your kind words, we had such a great time with you and your loved ones that evening!

  • Durham Catering is amazing! Especially Cady! Durham Catering catered our wedding at The Cookery and we got so many compliments about how delicious the food was (especially the mini beef wellingtons). I only wish I was able to enjoy the food more myself! Cady was fantastic to work with in planning the menu and provided a wonderful tasting for us in advance. The staff at the wedding were so friendly and helpful getting everything set up. I want to have another wedding with all my same vendors because everyone was so great to work with! THANK YOU CADY!

  • I wish I could eat food from Durham Catering Company EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. I am still not over it! We had the pleasure of working with Cady, who was simply amazing from start to finish. She was funny, knowledgable, and super responsive to any and all questions. I am secretly in love with her. After discussing budgeting and what we really wanted served at our wedding (lots of different food options so we could stuff our faces), we decided a buffet style was more realistic. I am so happy we went this route! Our guests are still talking about how good everything was, a month later. We also chose to use their bartending service because they allowed us to purchase our own beer and wine, which we really wanted to do. Cady even guided us in terms of how much beer and wine we needed based on our guest count. I have zero complaints about this company and would use them again in a heartbeat. Absolutely worth every penny!

  • Durham Catering Company provided the delicious food at my wedding at Duke Gardens. Not only was the food outstanding (so many compliments from my guests), but their service was impeccable. We worked with Cady to plan the food for the wedding, and the servers on-site were friendly and did a fantastic job. I also really liked how closely Durham Catering Company coordinated with the company that provides the linens, dishes, etc. They've got a great partnership going there! Thanks to the whole team at Durham Catering Company for taking such great care of us!

  • At first, we thought that Durham Catering was on the pricey side for us--but after our tasting and especially when compared to other options, they were the clear choice for us! Their presentation was extremely professional, and all of the food items were delicious and flavorful without being overwhelming. They were clearly experienced with catering weddings, and in combination with our planner, they quickly and smoothly accommodated any and all changes (and we had a lot)! I especially appreciated that they even came on site during the week before the wedding to look at the space and go over menu items with me again. I would highly recommend them for any event!

  • The food we selected at our tasting was incredible. They were even nice enough to send home a box for me to try, as my wife, mother and sister went to the tasting, while I was at work. Even at home that night, the food tasted amazing, and I was so excited to have it at our wedding. My wife and I have a long history of working in restaurants and bars downtown Raleigh, as do quite a few of our guests, so we were excited to kind of show off here! The mac and cheese we ended up with completely different than the one we tried at the tasting - down to it being a completely different noodle used as well, and the sauce was super minimal, making it overall very dry. The rest of the food was okay, but nothing to write home about. Just not the same quality that we initially signed up for. They also ended up serving our plates to my wife and I, which in theory sounds great, but of course, after saying hello and making our way to our seats, the food we were given was cold and fairly unappet...

  • We had a wonderful experience with durham catering. in addition to a change of venue during our planning, we experienced a number of dietary restrictions, all of which were accommodated by this company. We paid for a buffet style dinner, and plated appetizers for cocktail hour. During our tasting, we tried three of the items that we selected to be on our menu. Everything was great! The staff and food were pleasant.

    The pleasure was all ours, Nettie, thank you so much for the kind words! I hope you are enjoying newlywed status!

  • The day of service was exceptional. Servers and bartenders did great. The food was good, but cold... The price is very very high and they don't provide any of their own equipment, so you have to pay and rent that as well. Administration was poor, very confusing on what we needed to get and costs. Also they added costs after the wedding. Not worth the price tag.
